When God appears to be Silent

I remember once making a request of my parents that was so out of sync with the plans for the family, that they just stared at me, no verbal response, just a glare. Some may say that my request was unanswered. It took me years to learn that my request was answered. The answer was in their glare – a silent “no.” The more I studied prayer, the more I discovered that Jesus never mentioned unanswered prayer in his teaching on the subject. In spite of both secular and church pressure to admit to…

THE PRAYER OF THE UNINITIATED

There has to be a point where any of us begins to pray to a God that we know little about. I often think those are refreshing prayers. We find one of these in the 24th chapter of Genesis. Abraham sends his servant on a mission that would be impossible without the direction of God. After traveling for weeks he stops outside the town where Abraham's family lived, and prays.

“O LORD, God of…

#Reimagine Your Prayer List

We all have Prayer Lists.

Most write their own list. Some simply memorize or visualize who they pray for. Many follow the printed list in the Sunday bulletin. Apps send them to our smartphones.

The difficulty with Prayer Lists is not having enough people, places, or things to pray about; The problem is how to keep it fresh. AND, how to give ourselves permission to take a name off the list! (Personally, I find that…

COINCIDENCE?

I have had several striking coincidences this week. I am reminded of something I recently read, and you have read or heard many times. A hard-bitten detective in a mystery novel said, “I don't believe in coincidences.” Accidental coincidences are an unlikely explanation of many things that take place.

This week I wrote a pastor friend whom I have not seen in several years. I said I was praying for God to do more in…

THE KNEELING WARRIOR!



“ . . . The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16b)



“Fervent”, translated from the Greek “energeo”, which means: “to be active” “be mighty in” “to be at work” “to be effective” “to produce”. The implication is that a praying person will be effective as he applies much effort and time in the praying.



Further . . .

“Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers,…

REVIVE US AGAIN!



161 YEARS AGO … AMERICA’S 3RD GREAT AWAKENING BEGAN!

Oh, it did not look like it … not at the beginning! Jeremiah Lanphier had been passing out handbills, announcing a “Prayer Meeting” at the North Dutch Church on Fulton Street, downtown New York City during the lunch hour from Noon till 1:00 p.m. It was to include “singing, prayer and exhortation – no one to take more than 5 minutes” or a bell would ring to tell you to stop and let someone else pray.



At noon, September…

Pray Attention, Church!

Good praying often requires preparation. For example, Jesus commanded His followers with the words "watch and pray."

Also, Paul challenged all believers when he wrote, under the Holy Spirit's influence, "continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving." (Col. 4:2)

Apparently, watching has a vital role in our prayer activities!

The Greek word for "watch" is "gregoreo", which means, basically, "to be awake or vigilant." Webster's defines "watch" as "keeping…

DIVINE PREPARATION FOR REVIVAL

Looking at the 3rd chapter of Luke, a contemporary application of the prophecy fulfilled in the ministry of John the Baptist struck me. Verses 4-6 read,

“As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet,

‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness:…

PRAYING TOGETHER IN MARRIAGE

The Scripture I want to look at in this blog actually addresses only men. However, I believe ladies can read over our shoulders and get a firm grasp on some things that we need God to do in our marriages. My experience is that ladies are much better at doing that than men.

The verse is 1 Peter 3:7.

“Likewise, husbands, live with your…

Thanksgiving as an Ingredient of Prayer

Is it possible that Thanksgiving is more than a holiday – more than turkey, football, family, etc? For many years, people of faith have used the acronym, ACTS as a guide for prayer – “A” being for adoration; “C” being for confession; and “S” being for supplication. The “T” in that acronym stands for Thanksgiving – as demonstrated in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” and in 1 Timothy 2:1 “Therefore I exhort first of all that…

PTAP: Thanksgiving in Arabia

Pray for workers on the ground who are celebrating the holidays away from dear family and friends. Pray that the Lord would be near to them and fill their hearts with gratitude and joy despite the longing to be home and/or with loved ones during the holiday season.



Pray for opportunities for believers across the city to invite cousin friends to join in on their Thanksgiving meal. Pray that believers would be intentional and bold in sharing their thanks for what God has done in their… Continue

Finding Joy in Praying for my Grandchildren

What a joy it is to have that precious little grandchild come running into your arms with hugs and kisses. The six-year-old calling to tell you she lost her first tooth or your seven-year-old grandson excited about making his first goal in his soccer game.

In addition to senior discounts, grandchildren are one of the rewards of growing older. Mary H.…

Persecuted Church - encouraging testimony

No more fear

As a devoted Muslim, Ibrahim was always ready to defend the Quran. So, when a man walked into his small store in Yemen one day in 1997 and asked him a startling question — “Have you ever read the Bible?” — he proudly told the man that he believed the Bible was full of error and distortion.

At the end of their conversation, the man gave Ibrahim a New Testament and urged him to read it for himself.…

PRAYING WITH A CLEAR MIND







I have said, I want to be clear headed enough that I am still able to pray for people around me, even when I am completely disabled physically. But many of you will identify with something that has been happening to me. I will be talking about something that interests me and won't remember the name of someone I have read and respected for years. Or I will step out into our garage, but  won't remember why I am there. Last week someone…
