A Four-Fold Benedictine Blessing

Though not personally Benedictine, this prayer (which was originally written by Sr. Ruth Fox, OSB, in 1985) caught my attention as I was thinking through how to pray and what specifically to pray for during 2013. I pray that you will also find it useful. It is reprinted with attribution below:

Seek God for the City: Fulfill-it prayers!

From Steve Hawthorne--

In these crazy days I want to urge you to continue praying with full-hearted confidence that God will act in the midst of our communities and families in ways that glorify His Son.

The only way I’ve seen people live and pray in such confidence is when their hope is shaped by God’s word and fixated on the life-giving power of the…

The Power of Group Prayer

It turned out that Jimmy was suicidal.

Our youth staff team met with him after he had attended an outreach event we hosted at his high school. He later came to Christ, but his emotional, mental, and spiritual challenges were frankly, overwhelming to us at times.

I remember that on one occasion we all entered into a time of focused prayer for Jimmy. We listened to each other pray for him and in that concentrated time we also listened to what the Holy Spirit was…

Reconciliation – A Missing Link!?

By Eddie and Alice Smith

U.S. Prayer Center, Houston, Texas


Sadly, as we enter 2013 we can’t help but notice that much of the twenty-first century church is in disarray.


Despite Paul’s 2,000-year-old admonition against division…

Praying Toward a More Holier Faith in 2013

Due to the work we're doing through Ethnic Embrace USA, this comment from Roger E. Olson's blog caught my attention this morning:

"when evangelical Christians from other, non-Westernized, cultures come to us they…

12 Ways to Pray Biblically for Unreached People Groups

"Unreached" is a missiological term that means that less than 2% of an ethno-linguistic people group are Evangelical Christians, and less than 5% other Christian population. (For more about these definition click here). What this means is that there is insufficient Gospel presence for a Church Planting Movement to begin that will transform a people for Christ. Reaching every people group with the Gospel of the Kingdom is…

How to Launch and Sustain a Prayer Ministry in Your Church

(A few years ago this article appeared in Pray magazine and War Cry, the magazine of the Salvation Army).

Prolonged and painful.  That’s how I described our annual church budget deliberations.  Once our executive pastor, Chris, blurted out, “How we spend our money is our…

Revival, God's way

A quick study of the history of revivals since the days of John Wesley through America’s Second Great Awakening, and into Billy Graham, and Dwight Moody in America reveals that at the core of these preachers’ message was a call to live a life separate and different from the world around us. Two favorite Bible verses that come to mind are Jesus is prayer in John 15 where…

Prayer or Prayerlessness for the Nations?

Last night, toward the close of a year-ending prayer meeting, the Lord led me to seek Him to change the hearts of 1-3 world leaders from worldliness to faith in Jesus Christ in 2013; Saul to Paul conversions, if you will.

As I awoke this morning, the burden to pray this continued. Then I began to think, "The world, and its nations, will change in 2013- as they do every year. Will I seek their change through prayer or prayerlessness in 2013?"

It's a fact. By the end of this New…
