A must-read: Bingham Hunter's "The God Who Hears"

I recently finished re-reading a book that may well be my favorite book on prayer: The God Who Hears, by Bingham Hunter. I really appreciate the premise of the book that prayer begins with God, not with us. God is the one who draws us to prayer; we tend to see prayer as us coming to God when actually it's Him drawing us into His presence.

Hunter begins where prayer really should begin - with who God is. He deals with several…

Been betrayed lately?

Celebrating 50 years (this year) in ministry I can assure you that misunderstandings, mistrust and betrayals are unavoidable. In fact, as odd as it may sound, they are actually part of the plan. After all, if we're to reign with Him, we must first suffer with Him. It's in our suffering that we are conformed into His image.



For resurrection life to exist, something must die. It's not "if I'm ever betrayed". It's "when I'm betrayed". You see, many people blame the devil, when all…

Jesus' Praying Life



The first breakthrough understanding about prayer is that there is no recipe to follow, no “ten easy steps” to power in prayer. Power praying does not require that you master a skill, but that you pursue a present-tense relationship with the living and indwelling Jesus.



Prayer marked Jesus’ life. Long, extended times of prayer. Spontaneous eruptions of prayer. Prayer in public, and with His disciples. Certainly Jesus, who only did and spoke what the Father showed Him, did not use… Continue

"When Your Prayers are Unanswered"

“Why didn’t God answer my prayer?” That was the question posed by the new Christian, although the question is not unique to new Christians. First of all, there is no such thing as unanswered prayer, in spite of the old hymn text by B.B. McKinney. Sometimes, God says “No” or “Wait” but those are answers. When it seems God is not answering we tend to look for reasons. We blame God –…

The Prodigal Pray-er

If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say (or said myself), "I know I need to pray more ...," I would no doubt be a great deal richer than I am, if not a millionaire! I just found myself saying it again yesterday, which prompted my thoughts in that direction afresh. Why don't I?



Surely it’s not simply… Continue

"Dreaming of a New Day in Pastoral Leadership"

Recently, I enjoyed the honor of providing teaching and leadership in prayer at the Moody Bible Institute’s Pastors’ Conference in Chicago, Illinois. In addition, I was joined by both my sons, who helped lead worship for the prayer sessions, and my brother, a pastor from Texas, who assisted in the prayer times and co-taught my workshops. It was a great reunion of “the brothers” from two generations.



For over twenty years, MBI has served pastors…

Something Big is Happening Here

Sometimes you discover a new truth by accident.



That happened to me recently as I was reading through Ephesians. Actually I’ve been reading and re-reading Ephesians for the last few months. When I read David Powlison’s advice

that we should master Ephesians and be mastered by it because “in a

pinch you could do all counseling from…

It Seems To Me ...



. . . boring prayer meetings might be more fun than we realize! OK, maybe not fun. How about, valuable?



It must have been the Holy Spirit working on me because the other day I began to feel bad about how often I complain about how boring most church prayer meetings have become. Now, just to be clear, I still think too many small group or weeknight gatherings produce uninspired prayer. Same format 52 weeks in a row without any variance. New illness or crisis but same request; just… Continue

Podcasts on Prayer

I've completed several podcasts that may be of interest -- or you might find a sound bite or two to use as prayer prompts on various topics (some that we seldom get to in our typical prayer meetings).

Bringing God to Starbucks

I heard an inspiring "I-could-do-that" story this morning at an all-city prayer meeting for the marketplace in our community. The worship leader paused behind his guitar and told us about the three or so years he worked at Starbucks. At first it was just a job to pay the bills, he said. But gradually, God turned it into a powerful prayer ministry.


How? One morning the young man sensed God inviting him to pray a simple prayer: "Lord, is there anything You want to…

What If God Said Yes?

A friend posed a question last week that has challenged me ever since: "what if God said 'yes' to every prayer we prayed today? Would our neighbors or neighborhoods or nation notice? Are we praying radically?" That profound question came from prayer leader Phil Miglioratti over Facebook. I hope it's niggling at his other Facebook friends the way it's niggling at me!


I thought about the things I'd talked with God about that day. All good things. Important things.…

It's Not About You. Take the Tour. Do One Thing.

"It's not about you." Borrowing from the words of Rick Warren, I couldn't think of a better motivation on why you should check out the Take the Tour page on the Pray! Network and do at least one thing there if you haven't already done so.
