OUR HOPE IS IN HEAVEN

Recently my oncologist ask if I would add my experience to the ‘Patient Stories” on his website. I agreed, and began by looking at the stories already included there. I was amazed that out of 27 accounts only one had any mention of prayer or God or anything beyond this life. In 1 Corinthians 15:19 Paul tells believers that if our hope is only in this life we are of all people most miserable. This truth can be applied to cancer patients whether they are…

Listening Prayer: Conversing with the "Threeness" God

Listening prayer:

  • We must first recognize that every prayer starts with God
  • Our best prayers are simply responding to his call
  • God is one, yet reveals a "threeness" about himeself
  • (male pronouns are not meant to indicate that God has a gender; it is merely a linguistic reference)
  • That "threeness" tells us that:
    • God has always/eternally been in relationship
    • Always been communicating
    • ...in…

Praying for Missionaries, Pastors and Church Leaders

As I post this, my heart is heavy over the apparent moral failings of a high-profile pastor and seeming mishandling by the leadership of one the pioneer ministries or our day that continues to make headlines in the major newspapers. 

This post will not address any of the issues or problems in particular. Instead, as I share with the Prayer Network, I…

FACING DEATH IN HOPE

The 4th chapter of 2 Timothy is Paul's final declaration of faith before he was executed by Nero. When he pinned these words he was in prison and fairly certain of his imminent death.



I suppose that my situation is somewhat similar to Paul's, although Paul's physical condition was much more severe than mine. But my doctors tell me I am going to die before too long.



I have communicated with several people in the last few months that had a much…

Why? (Praying in Crisis, Pt. 4)

Perhaps the most famous cry of "Why" in the Bible came from the mouth of our Savior as he was dying on the cross.  "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46)

Jesus was quoting the beginning to Psalm 22, which we looked at previously.  In Jesus' case, of course, he had known in advance the agony he would suffer; in fact, he had prayed earnestly that he could be spared that agony (Matthew 26:36-42) - not just the physical agony of torture and crucifixion, but I suspect…
