The Waiting is the Hardest Part (Praying in Crisis, pt. 6)

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…

Mark Howell, Pastor of Communities at Canyon Ridge Christian Church in Las Vegas, Nevada and founder of, points out that a real challenge and a very common fear for praying out loud together is that of public speaking. For some, public speaking is…

Prayer Walk Guidelines and Sample Blessings

Prayer Walk Guidelines

Position yourself in humility to follow God and commit this time to Him (You are blessed to follow God’s direction in this re: taking communion, anointing yourself with etc.)

Ask Him to open your eyes to see all He would have you to see and to give you the words of forgiveness and blessing He wants you to pray.

Always be aware of your surroundings and obey all laws of the land, especially making sure you do not block roadways.

Wear comfortable…

Are your grandchildren at risk in today's culture?

Recently I was thinking about my grandchildren going back to school, and the story of baby Moses kept coming to my mind from Exodus chapter 2.

At the time Moses was born, Pharaoh was killing all the newborn Hebrew boys in Egypt.  When Moses was three months old, his mother hid him by making a basket, coated it with tar and pitch. His mother placed the child in it and then put him in the river among the reeds with his sister standing nearby watching. Pharaoh's…

Our Lives in this world are all temporary. In 2 Corinthians 5 Paul pictures our bodies as tents. This is a great picture from Paul the tentmaker. He may have had bedouins in mind, moving every day with the sparse grass across the desert. He may have been thinking of sojourners traveling to a new city. What comes to my mind is a camping trip. A tent is not permanent. Look with me at these first five verses of 2 Corinthians 5.…

The Need to be Taught to Pray

I’m about to try something I’ve not done before. For many years I occupied the Chair of Prayer at Southwestern Baptist Seminary and taught a very popular course on prayer each semester. I’ve also used those class notes to teach prayer on Sunday nights or Wednesday nights in churches where I served as Interim Pastor and furthermore, lead numerous prayer seminars in churches over the years. I’ve never used the notes to preach a series on prayer on Sunday mornings. Now I find myself serving as…

Listening Prayer: Conversing with the "Threeness" God

Listening prayer:

  • We must first recognize that every prayer starts with God
  • Our best prayers are simply responding to his call
  • God is one, yet reveals a "threeness" about himeself
  • (male pronouns are not meant to indicate that God has a gender; it is merely a linguistic reference)
  • That "threeness" tells us that:
    • God has always/eternally been in relationship
    • Always been communicating

The 4th chapter of 2 Timothy is Paul's final declaration of faith before he was executed by Nero. When he pinned these words he was in prison and fairly certain of his imminent death.

I suppose that my situation is somewhat similar to Paul's, although Paul's physical condition was much more severe than mine. But my doctors tell me I am going to die before too long.

I have communicated with several people in the last few months that had a much…

Praying for Missionaries, Pastors and Church Leaders

As I post this, my heart is heavy over the apparent moral failings of a high-profile pastor and seeming mishandling by the leadership of one the pioneer ministries or our day that continues to make headlines in the major newspapers. 

This post will not address any of the issues or problems in particular. Instead, as I share with the Prayer Network, I…

Praying for mid-term elections (pt. 1)

The Presidential Prayer Team daily prayer page today mentions that it's 100 days to the mid-term elections.  With division in our country running so high and questions still surrounding alleged attempts to interfere with the 2016 elections, we need God's intervention both to protect our election process and to put in place leaders who will honor him.  How should we then pray?  This is the first of a series of posts with thoughts on how to pray for our upcoming…

P.N Tip: Try Google Chrome!

If you're in the habit of pasting information and prayer requests here at Pray.Network (as I am), here's a tip:  Use Google Chrome rather than Internet Explorer or Edge browsers.  I have found that with IE/Edge, pasted copy often gets cut off on the right-hand side, reformatted in ways I don't expect, and pictures often don't come out well.

I've noticed since switching over to Chrome that none of these problems are present in that browser.  Chrome does do a little reformatting, but…
