LISTENING

LISTENINGListening is one of the most powerful tools you can employ to improve your preaching. Of course, we primarily need to listen to God. In Isaiah 55:3 God calls us to do just that.“Give ear and…Continue

3 WALKING YOUR SERMON

Every week when I was a pastor, I did what I called walking my sermons. Although this depends on the Biblical foundations I wrote about last week, I believe it is the most valuable advice I can give…Continue

PREACH THE WORD

What I am teaching is expository or direct Biblical preaching. I believe there is a place for topical preaching and apologetic, or subject teaching. But you will find great power in sharing what God…Continue

GREATER?

One of my favorite movies is Chariots of Fire. It tells the story of men competing in the 1924 Olympics. At one point in the movie the fiancee of Harold Abrahams, who would win the 100 meter race, asked why he was so possessed by his training. One of the other runners said, “Because he has the chance of being the fastest.” She counters, “But all of you are running in the Olympics.” He answers, he does not just have the chance of being a fastest man, but the fastest man who ever was.”In Luke…See More

JUSTIFYING GOD

Jesus’s statement about justifying God before men is among the quiet things in The Gospels. Yet this his is at the heart of what God does with our lives. Luke 7:29-30 says,“When all the people heard this, and the tax collectors too, they declared God just, having been baptized with the baptism of John, but the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected the purpose of God for themselves, not having been baptized by him.”How do we justify God? The common people and even tax collectors did it by radical,…See More

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 my master Abraham, please grant me success today and show steadfast love to my master Abraham. Behold, I am…See More

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 their services this Sunday than he knew to ask for. He wrote back that for months…See More

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:“Prepare the way of the Lord,    make his paths straight.Every valley shall be filled,    and every mountain and hill shall be made low,and the crooked shall become straight,    and the rough places shall become level ways, and all flesh…See More

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 wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be…See More

HOPE IN A WORLD OF EVIL

HOPE IN A WORLD OF EVIL“We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.”1 John 5:19I don't think we should need the Bible to tell us that we live in an evil world. Can you explain Germany's Third Reich without reference to evil, both in those who planned it and those who did not oppose it? What other explanation can you give for Joseph Stalin putting millions of his own people to death? How many millions died in China's Cultural Revolution or the Killing…See More

THE HOPE OF CHRISTMAS

THE HOPE OF CHRISTMAS“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”Luke 2:11Do remember the thrilling anticipation you experienced as a child as Christmas drew near? There is something very appropriate about that thrill. On Christmas we celebrate the hope of human history and of all mankind.FINAL PREPARATIONSLuke's Gospel has the fullest account of the birth of Christ. It begins with an angel appearing to aging Jewish priest named Zechariah. We read this…See More

David, I'm sorry to take so long to get back to you - have been sick for a couple of weeks and not on PN.  Try this link for the China prayer cast - I got it directly from YouTube.

David, apologies for taking so long to get back to you - my recent out-of-state move has pretty much dominated my time and I'm only now getting back to being on PN consistently.  I appreciate what you shared and the heart of integrity behind it.  You are a great example to me! 

I would also say that praying for the SC justices by name and simply leaving in God's hands how he wants to work in their lives and through their rulings is a very valid way to pray.  The strength of our prayers is not in the words, but in the One to whom we pray - not that you need to hear that from me!!
