Andrew R. Wheeler commented on Gary Sinclair's blog post Why I Don't Pray For Revival . . . At Least Not That Much
"It's possible that praying for revival today might look different than the crying out that we see in the cycles of Judges and Samuel.  In those times, people did not have the Holy Spirit living within them.  The main evidence of…"

"We are again doing a social media day of prayer where we send out a prayer email, text or Facebook update every half hour with a specific praise or request. This way we can gave people praying no matter where they are and we do not all have to meet…"

Distractions Don't Need To Distract Us In Prayer

We've all had it happen, haven't we?  We're trying to pray, perhaps alone or in a group, and soon our mind is wandering. We're thinking about the next meeting, our kids at home, a funny story, our struggle with our spouse or coworker, a song we heard on the radio and a thousand other things.Of course, we feel guilty again for not focusing on the Lord and the things that break His heart as the saying goes. We determine for the next few minutes to stay with our prayer list and seconds later our…See More

Are We Praying For The Symptoms or the Source?

It's interesting and encouraging that many of our churches are waking up to the fact that even Christ followers in our ranks are still sinning big time. For years studies by Barna and others have been telling us that church people aren't at least statistically that different morally from those not in the church.But unfortunately the truth is being realized and we're having to admit the…See More

Things To Tell Your Weekend Prayer Team NOT To Do

I would guess that most of our churches have a formal or informal group of people who minister to others after or during the service(s). And we all know that these people are truly pastors in some sense of the word as they love on and care for people through the power of prayer.  Thank God for people who love prayer ministry.However, some well-meaning folks need a little coaching particularly in what to avoid when they have those few minutes of time with people in need.  So let me share a…See More

Should We Be Any Different After Tomorrow's Elections?

Most of us are eagerly awaiting the results of tomorrow's national elections, especially for President. We have no doubt prayed for change, that truth would prevail and that God's hand would be on our country. Hopefully we have also voted or will cast our vote before the polls close.But what if our candidate loses?  What if we don't see the results we had hoped for? Will we be any different?  I hope not. Yes, we may face circumstances we'd rather not encounter or we could see things improve…See More

More In Love With The Kingdom or the King?

I've traveled to Russia fourteen times and will add a fifteenth in October. It's been a privilege to teach, train and inspire pastors and other leaders there over the years. They've also taught me much and my last trip almost a year ago was no exception.After the worship conference we helped lead finished, I and some of my team went out to a town called Istra where I've known the people and staff in a church there for over fifteen years. We helped them finance a building and have been able to…See More

Actions That Won't Get More Results In Prayer

Posted on May 20, 2013 at 3:33pm 0 Comments

I am confident that when most of us ask God for something we're very serious about it. We SO want that person to be healed, a friend's marriage to be restored or someone in our church to receive comfort. We passionately desire our children to be godly, our relationships to…

Sorry, Jon, I'm not the author. It sounds familiar but I don't remember the title. Sorry.

Gary: I am trying to remember if you were the author who wrote an article for Pray! years back on the actual commands in Scripture to pray for certain things: Peace of Jerusalem, laborers for the harvest, etc. If that was you, I am trying to get ahold of the article. Do you remember the title of it when it was in Pray? If that wasn't you, you can ignore me!
