Determining core values needs to be a Spirit-led process. Although we borrow strategies and exercises from the secular world or businesses, we must never forget that we are part of the Kingdom of God. As such, God is leading, not us. We need to listen with an open heart and a spirit of sensitivity.…

When your Pastor stands to proclaim God’s Word is there the appearance of being “prayed up?” You may or may not be able to discern this, but don’t assume that this is the case. Vance Havner borrowed an anonymous quote to describe the possibility that a pastor may not be up to date in his prayer life. "The devil is in constant conspiracy against a preacher who really prays, for it has been said that what a minister is in his prayer closet is what he is, no more, no less." Granted, it is… Continue

Over 258 million people live in a different country from their birth country. Another 20 million are refugees, 3 million are asylum seekers and 10 million are stateless. There are many other "people on the move" who are not counted in those statistics -- tourists, seafarers, diplomats, flight crews and so on.
Here are a few questions to help you know how to pray for diaspora people -- whether your neighbor, the person next to you on the bus, another church member or someone you see on… Continue

How do you exercise hope when you are grieving in the depth of your soul? In the 12th chapter of John Jesus showed us something about this spiritual discipline. Listen to His voice as his heart bleeds with sorrow in verses 27,28.
“Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But for this purpose I have come to this hour. Father, glorify your name.” Then a voice came from heaven:… Continue

Is it a good idea to analyze or study one's own prayers to become more effective?
I have gotten different feedback from my Christian friends most of them negative.
From your point of view, Is this a worthy endeavor?"
It seems To Me . . .

“. . . I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalm 34:1 NASB)
Why do you suppose we most often refer to David as the “psalmist”? It’s true 73 of the “songs” are attributed to him, but that’s less than half. Maybe we consider him the author of Psalms because we identify with his personal challenges and… Continue

For both Muslims and Christians there is a great desire for the afterlife. This world and all that it offers still leaves us empty. We desire heaven. It is the work of Jesus on the cross that assures Christians their sins are forgiven and they have an eternal home in heaven when they die. Christians have confidence in the finished work of Jesus.
Muslims do not have Jesus' righteousness; all they have is the hope that Allah will allow them into paradise. They have no… Continue

We are going to look in God’s Word to see some examples of people He used to stand in the gap for his purpose to be accomplished. The Bible describes prayer as “Standing in the Gap” or “Bridging the Gap” a channel through which God’s will is brought to earth.
God chose and appointed Moses to stand in the gap between His people, the Israelites, and Pharaoh. Esther… Continue

Why doesn't God answer prayer immediately? Why does he seem at times to hold back, to keep us in difficult circumstances when he could bring healing, relief, finances, reconciliation, and more - all with just a word?
There is no "one-size-fits-all" answer to this question. First and foremost, we must acknowledge and agree with God that His ways and His thoughts are higher than ours, and we're not going to understand them all the time (Isaiah 55:9). With Paul, we cry out, "Oh, the… Continue
