Our culture constantly teaches us that self-confidence guarantees success. But Scripture teaches a different lesson.
“There’s one blessing only, the source and cornerstone of beatitude—confidence in self.”

I couldn't wait for his observations. A lifelong friend and mentor came to an A Praying Life seminar for the first time and I had asked him for his input on how we can improve.
“Bob, it was so much more than I ever expected,” he shared passionately. “In fact, it really was about walking more deeply with God and not just praying right.”
He nailed it. For many well-intentioned…

Prayer is not simply mouthing a few words spoken in the morning or at the dinner table. That us of course an important part prayer. But prayer is the opportunity to live our whole lives in God’s grace. Early this morning I read the story of the raising of Lazarus in John chapter 11. This passage gives us a vivid picture of living in God’s grace. While Jesus and His disciples were in Galilee they received word from Martha and Mary that their brother Lazarus was seriously ill. The message…Continue

The excitement of a first time grandparent is always the beginning of a new journey. As most grandparents, I was very excited to become a grandparent even though I was only 42 years old. Now I have 9 grandchildren with 3 married and 2 great-grandchildren and each additional family member brings more happiness.
Nothing is more important to me than…Continue

Praying Into Another Person’s Vision-an act of Love and Friendship
We live in a highly individualistic society—which carries over into our prayer life—many of us pray alone—and we justify that by showing in the Bible various occasions where Christ went and prayed alone.—We also look at the prayer closet (Matthew 6: 6)—as reason to pray alone.…Continue

Prayer is a powerful expression of divine love in our lives. Most of us misunderstand this because our society has redefined love as romance. But love is not simply romantic feelings but expressing selflessness. When scripture tells a man to love his wife it is not necessarily telling him to be romantic. It may be when that is what his wife wants and needs. But romance usually focuses on how we feel about a person or how someone makes us…Continue

PERSECUTED BECAUSE OF THE CROSS
by Elizabeth Kendal
To those who believe that Jesus of Nazareth was a mere man, the Cross is a symbol of Christian foolishness (1 Corinthians 1:18). 'Jesus was executed,' they scoff, 'and it is ridiculous to suggest that a dead man would rise.'
To Muslims, who believe that Jesus was a mere prophet of Allah, the Cross is a symbol of Christian…

There is an underlying message in what the Bible, especially Jesus, says about prayer. We need God’s hand in everything we do. You cannot pray, you cannot think, you cannot live as a believer without God's help. In John 5:30a Jesus said, “By myself I can do nothing.” If Jesus was totally dependent upon His Father, should we be any less? Earlier in the same dialogue Jesus said. “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself.” Are…Continue

I would like to share a guest blog that I found to help parents pray for their teenagers on the iMOM.com website. Grandparents often ask me, “How can I pray for my teenager?” I think this will be a great resource for grandparents to pray for their teenagers. Check out the website and share with you grandchildren’s mothers.
