Over the past decade, I have watched the genre of books available for prayer leaders expand from a few to dozens and dozens. There are so many resources available today for prayer leaders that the question becomes:
Which ones do I purchase first?
Let me review what the Church Prayer Leaders… Continue

If I really wanted to pray I'll tell you what I'd do. I'd go out into a great big field alone or into the deep, deep woods, and I'd look up into the sky - up - up - up - into that lovely blue sky that looks like there's no end to its blueness. And then I'd just feel a prayer. ~L.M. Montgomery… Continue

So many times it just feels like "if you don't have enough faith, don't pray hard enough, don't get really into the prayer and faith and trust, then nothing will happen and it will be your fault.
However I was reading Mike Evans "The Unanswered Prayers of Christ" where he felt drained of energy and could not see how he could pray with enough faith for the healing of a child. But he closed his eyes and prayed, thinking nothing will happen, I don't feel it, I am too tired to do it.

I recently interviewed Jon McHatton of the Christian Emergency Network, which is based on the prayer-care-share lifestyle.
As Jon explains how the CEN works, he highlights many prayer points for intercessors who have a burden to pray for victims of disasters such as the recent Nashville flooding, Oklahoma hurricanes, and devastating earthquakes.…

God is working even when I do not realize it.
My car just returned from the radiator repair shop. I said Ouch because it was $600 to repair a major leakage into the oil. The mechanic was amazed that the leak had not been allowed to continue until it cracked the head .... and cost much, much more.
He said I had good hearing. Sure I heard the putt-putt of the engine some days - but not every time - when I started it up. Another mechanic had done $50 worth of work on the radiator system… Continue

A friend posed a question last week that has challenged me ever since: "what if God said 'yes' to every prayer we prayed today? Would our neighbors or neighborhoods or nation notice? Are we praying radically?" That profound question came from prayer leader Phil Miglioratti over Facebook. I hope it's niggling at his other Facebook friends the way it's niggling at me!
I thought about the things I'd talked with God about that day. All good things. Important things.… Continue

If we are not praying we are playing.All we see in the physical world,is a manifestation or a shadow of what is happening in the spiritual world,Lets not be ignorant of the devil's devices.Submit to God and resist the devil,he will flee from your marriages finances,kids and all the areas in our battle field and remember this that spiritual warfare will always receive mercy.Fear Not is a Holy command from a Holy God you need not to fear dont break this command.

I heard an inspiring "I-could-do-that" story this morning at an all-city prayer meeting for the marketplace in our community. The worship leader paused behind his guitar and told us about the three or so years he worked at Starbucks. At first it was just a job to pay the bills, he said. But gradually, God turned it into a powerful prayer ministry.
How? One morning the young man sensed God inviting him to pray a simple prayer: "Lord, is there anything You want to… Continue

God doesn’t give us ministries we cannot perform. God calls us to ministry and gives us the gifts we need to do what needs doing. We are sometimes amazed at what we are able to do in the service of the God who empowers us with the Holy Spirit.…

I've completed several podcasts that may be of interest -- or you might find a sound bite or two to use as prayer prompts on various topics (some that we seldom get to in our typical prayer meetings).

I recently read that the Bible contains something like 3,294 questions. As a born question-asker myself, the idea intrigued me. So I decided to go on a lookout for questions in God's Word. Today, on Day One of my experiment, my regular Bible reading took me to Numbers 11, where Moses whines to God about the Israelites' whining. I was fascinated to see that his complaint mainly took the form of questions. Lots of them, in rapid-fire succession. In The Message version, there were seven. In… Continue

One of my favorite quotes about communication comes from a book by Norm Wright and goes something like this...
"I know you think you heard what I said, but I don't think you realize that what you heard is not what I meant."
Being a family of eight we have more than our fair share of miscommunication. No matter how hard we try it seems to happen daily. Most of the time it's because we are much more concerned with being heard than being ready to listen. If we're honest we'll… Continue
