PTAP: Pray for Kuwait amid coronavirus.

Weekly Prayer - June 30, 2020
 
This week, we would like to pray for Kuwait. 
Recently, the drive to redress demographic imbalance and increase the proportion of nationals in the country has gained momentum in Kuwait. This has been a part of wider efforts by some political leaders and lawmakers to curtail number of migrant workers in…

THE WORD OF ENLIGHTENMENT

I am astounded by the number of deep truths that rise to the surface of John chapter 1. Some of them are expressed by the reciprocating metaphors of the word and the light. Look with me at these verses.

John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:4

In him was life, and the life was the light of men.

John 1:9-14

The true…

Pandemic Prayer

In the early days of the Coronavirus quarantine, I was extremely restless and frustrated. Even in retirement, I’ve been running close to full speed. Sitting in my den recliner I was reading my Bible, and praying, and asking God what I was to “do” since my travel was now limited and cancellations had caused more Liquid Paper than ink on my calendar. Having just read James 1:22, “Be doers of the word,” I looked up and saw on the fireplace mantle, my wife’s display of all the books I had…

PTAP: Mental Health in Arabia

Pray for individuals currently receiving treatment for mental health conditions.  Pray for freedom from their illness, and for their hearts to feel heard and loved.  Pray for their safety and for cultural acceptance despite acknowledgement of their need for help, especially at this time where many of the Gulf countries are under quarantine.
 
Pray that God would heal the stigma that exists around mental health in the Arabian Gulf…

I think five or six of us showed up that June 1990.

 

We placed our chairs in a small circle and introduced ourselves: “Hi, I’m Al from Palatine…I’m Joe from Arlington Heights…John from Lake Zurich…Gary from Schaumburg.” They had come to my office…

A Portrait of a Grandparent

 There was a time when the word “grandparent” evoked images of rocking chairs, gray hair, wrinkles, and big meals. However, things have changed. Recent data indicates about one-third of all adults are grandparents, and their average age is 64, and the average age for becoming a grandparent is around 47. My husband and I became grandparents at 43.

Now,…

THE SECRET OF COURAGE







One of the most courageous actions recorded in Scripture is found as Joseph of Arimathea going to ask for the body of Jesus. It does not take much imagination to understand what Joseph must have been thinking when he considered going to Pilate. He must have known he would lose his place on the Sanhedrin and in society by doing that. He had to have considered the fact that connecting himself to a condemned criminal might cost him his life as…

DO YOU SAY SO?





Some years ago I heard a Muslim man in a question and answer time with Ravi Zacharias say Jesus never claimed to be the Son of God.



That is not true. A case in point is found in Matthew 16. When Simon Peter said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God,” Jesus did not just say Peter was right, He said flesh and blood had not shown Peter this. Our Lord’s Father in Heaven revealed it to Peter. Jesus had first asked His disciples who…

"I Can't Breathe!"

From our colleague at InterVarsity Press

My head is still a bit foggy from the weekend, with news, tweets and headlines ranging from peaceful protests and constructive dialogue to others of rioting, violence and deep misunderstanding. Even our little city in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, ran the emotional gamut yesterday with a…

Attempt at honest dialog by an old, non-police officer white guy.

One of the Civil Rights protest slogans is "No Justice No Peace."

 

That slogan has strong implications. When a peaceful Civil Rights protest is followed by rioting, it makes me wonder, “Has implication turned into action?”  The answer to that question affects my view of race in America.
