“Why didn’t God answer my prayer?” That was the question posed by the new Christian, although the question is not unique to new Christians. First of all, there is no such thing as unanswered prayer, in spite of the old hymn text by B.B. McKinney. Sometimes, God says “No” or “Wait” but those are answers. When it seems God is not answering we tend to look for reasons. We blame God –… Continue

Greetings from our Lord Jesus
I am on the harvest field. Last Wednesday I went out for evangelism and preach to one of the rubber in our community, at the end of our talk he give his life to Christ and even told me that he will never do those things again. The young boy said to me, I was four when my father died, my mother is a drunker. Four this reason I live all my life on the street, but your preaching tough me. I want for Christ to save me. He left while his friends continue.… Continue

If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say (or said myself), "I know I need to pray more ...," I would no doubt be a great deal richer than I am, if not a millionaire! I just found myself saying it again yesterday, which prompted my thoughts in that direction afresh. Why don't I?
Surely it’s not simply… Continue

I wanted to begin to share with you all some of the stories being shared with me by our State Prayer Leaders here at the National Governors' Prayer Team. www.ngpt.org
This is one from Pastor Ron Thaxton. I will let the story speak for itself through it's writer.
"Amazing!" This was Gov. Joe Manchin’s response to the reading of Proverbs 16:9-13 from the New Living Translation. As I read this passage I inserted the word governor in place of king. In… Continue

In Luke 11:9-13 Jesus asks us to ask, seek and knock -- in other words, pray. What for? in Verse 13 Jesus says it's Gifts from the Holy Spirit! How many of us pray for more Spiritual Gifts? In 1 Cor. 12:31 Paul tells us to earnestly desire the Spiritual Gifts, evidently by prayer. In 1 Cor. 14:1 Paul tells us again to desire the Spiritual Gifts, especially that we may prophesy.
In James 1:5-6, James tells us how to get the gift of Wisdom. We do it through the prayer of faith. That must… Continue

That there are conditions necessary for revival is virtually undisputed. II Chronicles 7:14 is often cited. And that we have prayed and prayed, at least a resilient core has persisted in prayer, without a revival coming to America, is also… Continue

It bears repeating...
Just this morning as I was talking with some Campus Crusade guys, I recalled something said by Dr. Bill Bright in an interview not long before he passed on. They asked him to think back over his life's work and mention what he would change, if anything. [Can you imagine being there in the room, and leaning in closely to hear his response?]
(paraphrasing...) "I would have prayed more."

“The devil wants you to believe that justice delayed means justice denied (so that you lose heart and give up asking). But in fact, justice delayed means recompense compounded… Is it possible, beloved elect of God, that God has called you to wait upon Him because He wants to exact as much as a sevenfold return from your enemy for the years he has… Continue

I used to think that the most spiritual praying was about big-ticket items—you know, evangelism, revival, and justice for cities and nations. And it certainly is important to pray for God’s kingdom to come to earth in these large-scale ways. However, when church prayer leaders ask me why I think it’s so hard to get their people to pray for these significant causes, I sometimes suggest that it could be because people don’t see enough of the power and love of God in their everyday… Continue

The Lord is looking for people who will pray for the harvest that is wasting away in the world. We are not to pray alone but also to take action, for it is action that help prayer.We in Africa can see the harvest. Please remember to pray for this work.
In Romans we see groups that will take the gospel to the nations, one to sent, one to go, one to pray.
I am one of those that are on the field. My concern is that people should pray for me to fulfill this God given vision.

. . . boring prayer meetings might be more fun than we realize! OK, maybe not fun. How about, valuable?
It must have been the Holy Spirit working on me because the other day I began to feel bad about how often I complain about how boring most church prayer meetings have become. Now, just to be clear, I still think too many small group or weeknight gatherings produce uninspired prayer. Same format 52 weeks in a row without any variance. New illness or crisis but same request; just… Continue
