I Can't Fix This

It will be 3 weeks ago tomorrow that my youngest brother took his life. I've blogged about the details of that night, but haven't been able to post it yet. I don't know that I ever will. It was just good for me to get it out of my head and down on "paper".



The week after it happened, I met with my worship pastor/friend Kevin Moore to help sort through some of my emotions and thoughts. One of the things he pointed out was that I was struggling with the fact that I couldn't control what… Continue

Online Prayer Journal: Pray Every Day

I'm glad to be part of the "Pray! Network," with other like-minded, like-hearted people!

 

I'm also glad to have had an opportunity to put together The Pray! Prayer Journal, published a few years ago by NavPress. Perhaps you've been one of the individuals who've gone through the journal. I would love to hear your stories of how God used that in your life.

 

Meanwhile, I'm writing to let you know that I'm attempting to "continue the conversation" online at…

Solemn assembly: Thought and consecration, #01

01. The aim of the Holy Convocation: “Revive Thy work again.” Hab 3:2.
Our Prayer: “Restore godliness among Thy people.”

02. Solemn Assembly: Gathered for prayer of an extra-ordinary kind.
“There I will meet with you”. Ex 29:43.

03. Solemn Assembly: Finding and establishing prayer ground with each other. Reconciliation in practice – in modern language, real time forgiveness and restitution.

Relational Disconnect

Recently I was visiting a Bible Study and the topic for the evening was prayer.  As participants were discussing prayer, success stories of answered prayers, hindrances to a more effective prayer life I became increasingly disturbed and saddened. 

 

I was disturbed because of the realization that you could have cut and pasted the words  “texting” or “toasters” for the word prayer in the discussion and it would have made perfect sense.  “Texting” is an inanimate activity we…

The most strategic division in the body of Christ today...

may NOT BE racism, sexism, denominational-ism, doctrinal differences, and etc. It may be the division between the "watchmen" and "gatekeepers."

 

Old Testament walled cities had massive gates, with gatekeepers; and watchtowers on either side of the gates, with watchmen. The purpose of the watchmen, not surprisingly, was to watch. The purpose of the gatekeepers, was to open and close the gate. The problem? The gatekeeper couldn't see over the wall and the watchmen couldn't open…

One-word prayers

Tonight at dinner at the Quad-Cities Christian Writers Conference (Eldridge, Iowa), I heard a neat idea for church or group prayer that I think both honors the God who knows our hearts and also encourages people to pray who would normally not participate in any group or public prayer setting.

The church we were discussing had a practice, during their weekly worship service, of having a time for prayer in which they invited the congregation to come forward and simply name someone for…

There I will meet. . . #01

There I will meet with you

Ex 29:42-43



A gathering of the interceding Church for the purpose of unreserved commitment and explicit agreement. . .





01.



God’s history of deliverances, of salvation, allows us to get a glimpse of, and to begin to understand the interaction between the purposes of God, the promises of God and the painful predicaments of a people meant for glory.



Deliverance has come when the word of God has been made void, Ps 119:126.… Continue

God, Our Refuge and Fortress

“I will say of the LORD, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust. Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.’”  —Psalm 91:2-3



Dictators overthrown. Political turmoil. Earthquakes. Unexpected nuclear disaster. All eyes linger on Japan’s nuclear crisis as both sides of the Pacific… Continue

Spiritual Warfare

You Have The Power

 

There is a spiritual battle taking place in the heavenly realms today that defies description. If we had the spiritual eyes to see the battle, we would be overcome with terror. Since the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the enemy has been trying to take back control of the earth and he means to steal from, kill and destroy all the followers of Christ.
