Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
There are many ways to pray for the United States. Some take a very politicized approach to prayer, seamlessly blending politics with spiritual truth in ways that are sometimes inspired and at other times, well, pretty agenda-based. Others take a more generic approach, simply trusting God to bring about the right results without really concerning themselves too much…Continue

Last week I started a new blog, Thinking in The Spirit, http://thinkinginthespirit.blogspot.com/. I began writing about the relief and refuge of repentance. Next week I will continue that theme. But this week, and every other week in the future, I want to return to Watching in Prayer.
This being an election year in America, I want to talk to you about praying your politics. What does this mean? How do you apply this…Continue

Connect, Communicate, Collaborate, Celebrate
Acts 2:46-47 “Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.” NAS
I am often motivated by the word, “Together,” especially in Scripture. Jesus called His disciples together in order to…Continue

This first post in my new blog THINKING IN THE SPIRIT. Most of the posts in this new blog will not be good to post here on Pray Network. But this post could well have been entered in WATCHING IN PRAYER, which I plan to continue to post every other week. However, I am approaching even this similar entry from a different perspective and intent.
And as I finished writing this entry, I decided that because the segments were so short my readers would be tempted to skip over them too…Continue

A Prayer Guide For Churches Hungry for Revival and Ready for Renewal
Recently I read in Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, “Entrust your loved ones to me; release them into My protective care. They are much safer with Me than in your clinging hands. If you let a loved one become an idol in your heart, you endanger that one—as well as yourself. When you release your loved ones to Me, you are free to cling to My hand.” It is hard to…Continue

This has seemed strange to some of you when I have done it in the past. But it is crucial that I ask my readers to pray for me and for my blog. This is important because all wisdom, all discernment and all knowledge come from God. If He does not speak through my writing, no one will benefit.
This is true about anything you read, anyone who teaches or any preacher you listen to. Pray for God to speak to them. And ask Him to speak through them. I have a particular request this week,…Continue
Monday Morning Manna: Angels as Prayer Partners When I teach on prayer I usually include the role of angels as one means through which God responds to our requests. I occasionally have a challenger in the group that questions my comments. I simply reply that 34 of the 66 books in the Bible mention angels, including Hebrews 1:14, which refers to angels as, “ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation.” I then clarify that nowhere in the Bible does anyone…Continue

There’s no denying it: smartphones are, well, smart. Nifty and immensely helpful gadgets, they seem to do everything we need: connect us to our peeps, answer all our questions, and guide us to our destinations. We grab them when we wake up, and fall asleep with them in our hands. (See infographic, below). We drive with them, keep track of our…Continue

Jesus says in the Great Commission, "Go and preach the Gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15).

God made the first “Cordless” phone, the model was called Prayer, it never loses the signal, and the Holy Spirit does the recharging. The line is never busy; you don’t have to press a number for your language, it is always available 24/7.
Prayer is the greatest and lasting gift we can give our families. Material things are needed but they are temporary. Our prayers can be lasting and will have a ripple effect to our grandchildren and future…Continue

The Apostle John trembled as he was given this wonderful promise from heaven.
And I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Blessed indeed," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them."
What does it mean to die in the Lord? Whatever it means, I am sure you know the only way you can die in the Lord is to be living…Continue
"What Are You Going to do for your Grandkids at Easter"
Are you going to share the real meaning of why we celebrate Easter with your grandkids this year? Let’s make Easter a special celebration of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ for our grandkids.
Here are a few suggestions:
Pray for a believer who is working with a group of people who share his faith. Pray that they all will grow in the Lord, that they will have unity and that they will have the courage to proclaim the Good News with those who have not heard. Pray that when persecution comes, they will remain strong.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another…Continue
