Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Is anyone having an issue with the music taking so much time there is no time for prayer in the service, and not much time for sermons? Or has anyone having a problem with Purpose Driven Church and it's philosophy?

This morning in my time with the Lord, I was reading in Genesis 40, which is the account of Joseph in prison for a crime he did not commit. The Bible is not clear as to the length of his confinement before his release, but we do know that Joseph knew that was not the end for him—there was more to come according to the prophetic dreams of the Lord that had been planted in his spirit thirteen years prior as a young lad of…Continue

How many times have we heard that Jesus prayed early in the morning and thus we ought to do the same? Granted, early morning prayer is both needed and valuable. But what if I am not a morning person? What if I wake up slow and don’t think very well until a few cups of caffeine? What if I am a night person? Good news. God hears and responds to prayer in the evening as well as in the morning. The Psalmist said, “The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song…Continue

The mighty prophet Elijah had been used by God in some dramatic ways: proclaiming to King Ahab that there would be no rain until further notice; multiplying a widow’s meager food; raising a boy from the dead; challenging the false prophets of Baal and calling down fire from heaven; and praying for the return of rain.
But these activities—and the demonic threats of Queen Jezebel—took a toll on the man of God, to such an extent that in 1 Kings 19 he…

As a grandparent, you are already aware of the many forces at work, intent on attempting to shape the thoughts and opinions of the little ones in your family.
For decades, psychologists have reported about the…Continue

My husband John saw the face of God…
I see God and have a personal relationship with Him.
I say this very humbly. Personally I can’t imagine a life without a higher power. Sometimes life just really stinks and it is good to know that God never did intend any of this and that He still has a plan. God does not want to elude us but show us He is real.

Good Will or God’s Will
I still remember the time I handed my will over for God’s will.
I was a very successful highly trained medical professional who just reached the paradigm of jobs with the most highly rated Biotech Company in the US at the time.
It was a good job and as a medical provider I had helped a lot of people.
I wanted to work there for life and I basically had my future…Continue

One of the most familiar “group prayer” questions is, “Would you lead us in prayer?” Everyone knows what it means. But if we are going to be most effective in facilitating corporate prayer, we will want to broaden the meaning of this very familiar question. Here is what I wrote in United and Ignited.
I have the privilege of sharing at Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon a few times per year on the topic of dynamic corporate prayer. …

The book of the Bible most dedicated to the teaching of wisdom is Proverbs. The thoughts, collections and sayings of Solomon, arguably the wisest man in history, are offered in Proverbs for all who would seek to live wisely. I find it very interesting, almost ironic, that the book of the Bible most dedicated to the propagation of wisdom begins with several chapters warning of the folly of sexual sin. I find it even more intriguing that these warnings are offered by the son of a known…Continue

Islam is a totalitarian, all-encompassing system of life. Blasphemy (criticism) and apostasy (rejection) are punishable by death for not only are blasphemers and apostates regarded as enemies and traitors to Islam, they are also a source of fitna. Fitna is…

We have taken the Bible, prayer and the Ten Commandments out of our schools and the public arena. The vast majority of our young people no longer have a moral compass. Broken homes, the corruption of our culture and the secularization of society have led to an entire generation of young people feeling lonely and hopeless. In many cases, they are seeking relief using dangerous and potentially deadly chemicals. Not only are they abusing prescribed medications, smoking herbal marijuana…Continue

“How are you doing today?” That’s the question I’ve often asked people over the years.
But I’ve concluded that this is probably the wrong question. I’m thinking of trying out a new query for the people I encounter:
“How’s your TRAJECTORY today?”
This is a much better question, isn’t it? Although I hope you’re having a good day, it’s much more important that the overall trajectory of your life is…Continue

My grandmother’s example of her faith in Jesus Christ to see her through the difficult times in life made a significant imprint on my life.
While I was attending college in her town, I had many opportunities to visit my widowed grandmother often. She shared with me that in her loneliness she was placing her trust in God to care for her by claiming the promise Jesus gave His disciples after His resurrection. “Lo, I am with you always, even to…Continue

NORTH KOREA: EXPOSING THE TERRORS OF THE GULAG
by Elizabeth Kendal
In North Korea loyalty to and worship of the ruling Kim family is mandatory, as is acquiescence to the doctrine of juche (self-reliance). The official website of North Korea (DPRK) states: 'The Juche idea is based on the philosophical principle that man is the master of everything and decides everything. It is the man-centred…

In the 15th century, Martin Luther wanted to renew genuine worship. For centuries monks had kept the scriptures and sacred music locked away in monasteries. But after printing press put the Gutenberg bible back in the hands of the common man in the 1450’s, Luther worked to put worship back in the hands, and minds of the common man to fuel the revival that swept…Continue
