How Long Does a Breakthrough Take?

Your breakthrough is probably a lot closer than you think. Whether you need a miracle in your health, finances, relationships, or peace of mind, it’s possible that the answer is just a few steps away.

 

But I can understand if you are skeptical. You may have been waiting a long time already.

 

Abraham and Sarah had waited many years for a son, and you can understand why they would laugh upon hearing God’s prediction that their breakthrough was finally less than a…

Are We Praying For The Symptoms or the Source?

It's interesting and encouraging that many of our churches are waking up to the fact that even Christ followers in our ranks are still sinning big time. For years studies by Barna and others have been telling us that church people aren't at least statistically that different morally from those not…

Reclaiming Radical Faith

Within hours of when the Boston bombing suspects were identified, terrorism experts were barraged with an intriguing but misguided question: How did these young men become “radicalized”? After spending several years in the United States, why would they hate us—to such a degree that they would carry out horrific acts against innocent bystanders?

 

Well, I’m sorry, but this question totally misunderstands what it means to be radicalized. There’s nothing…

PROTESTANTS IN UZBEKISTAN HARASSED AND BULLIED WITH IMPUNITY

UZBEKISTAN: PROTESTANTS HARASSED AND BULLIED WITH IMPUNITY



by Elizabeth Kendal



Uzbekistan, a predominantly Muslim former Soviet Republic in Central Asia, has been ruled by Islam Karimov since 1989. Karimov continues to operate according to Communist Soviet paradigms and society is heavily regulated. The main threats to the State come from Hizb-ut-Tahrir revolutionaries and Islamic Movement of…

Take Off the Training Wheels!

Good leaders are like training wheels on a bicycle. They are a indispensable to get you started, but they’re removed once you’re able to ride on your own.

 

The transition away from training wheels can be scary, but it’s exhilarating to discover you can succeed without them. You can travel farther, faster, and have lots more fun on the journey.

 

Good parenting is the same way. Newborn babies are utterly dependent on their parents for their very survival. But…

Why is there an Urgency to Pray for your Grandchildren?

I am the National Prayer Coordinator for Christian Grandparenting Network and I would like to share my thoughts about WHY there is an urgency to pray for our grandchildren.

We live in a time of extraordinary circumstances and events. We have seen many events of evil in our world over the past year with many innocent lives taken away from us. In our society, our…

Household Salvation Prayer

God has been stirring up a burden in my wife, Julie and me, for our many unsaved family members. We’ve also heard this from other Christian friends we know as well. This is a clear indicator that the Holy Spirit is about to be poured out upon all flesh in these last days before tribulation comes upon the whole world. I believe this is our “hour of opportunity”—an open window to pray like never before with the burden of the Lord for our lost family members and to…

Two more special ways to pray in hope this year

As we close the 40-day period of Seek God for the City 2013, the team at WayMakers have heard from some of the thousands who used to the prayer guide to pray beyond themselves toward great things God has promised, many of them for the first time. Here are a few examples:

“I love that you can cover the world in prayer in 40 days.”

“It brought us together to pray strategically for our city.”

“Allowed us to focus on needs outside our four…

EVIL THRIVES IN LAWLESS SINAI

Religious Liberty Prayer Bulletin | RLPB 205 | Wed 10 Apr 2013



EGYPT: EVIL THRIVES IN LAWLESS SINAI



by Elizabeth Kendal



It was in the Sinai desert that the nation of Israel received God's law. Consequently we tend to think of the Sinai as a place of law-giving. Today, however, under Egyptian control, the Sinai (particularly the north-east) is absolutely lawless - a place of law-breaking. Not only has al-Qaeda established a presence, but Bedouin criminal…

Developing a yearly rhythm for church prayer

Developing a yearly rhythm for church prayer

by Phil Miglioratti

PALATINE, Ill. (BP) -- Nine years into my pastorate of a small, suburban congregation all heaven broke loose. On a Sunday in December 1989, like the Berlin Wall that had recently crumbled half-way across the globe, a wall came crashing down in our church. Our creative but comfortable evangelical congregation suddenly went from singing three short choruses each Sunday to…

Sending Prayers Where?

“Sending prayers your way.”  I’m noticing this comment more and more, especially on Facebook and other social media. I know what the sender intends to say.  At least, I sincerely hope they are not actually sending the prayers toward the person in need. If so, they should not expect an answer to their prayer.  Only God answers prayer and then likely only prayer offered directly to Him.  The direction of our prayer must always be God-ward, not man-ward.  The Bible instructs us to “pray for…

What Does National Repentance Looks Like

What Does National Repentance Look Like (Jonah 3:1-10)



For some time I have been personally praying for there to be a Third Great Awakening in America. Today I am going to give you seven principles that lead to a Great Awakening. They are not original with me. The come straight out of Jonah 3.

DANGEROUS CHAOS LOOMS IN BANGLADESH

BANGLADESH: DANGEROUS CHAOS LOOMS

by Elizabeth Kendal 



If Bangladesh does not change its present trajectory, it will be sucked into a vortex of bloody civil and sectarian conflict. In 1971 as many as three million were killed when Bangladesh fought for independence from Pakistan. Bangladeshi Islamist groups such as the Jama'at-e-Islami aided and abetted the Pakistan military in war crimes. Though…
