Do you Think God's Timetable is too slow to Answer your prayers?

 Do you think God's timetable is too slow for you in answering your prayers? We read in John chapter 11, where Mary and Martha sent word to their dear beloved friend Jesus to let him know their brother Lazarus was sick. Mary and Martha became impatient when Jesus didn’t come when they thought He should come to heal Lazarus. However, Jesus had different plans, He told the disciples, and “This sickness will not end in death, No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s…

When God Speaks to Women

The first guy who got away with decision making without the impact of a woman was Adam, when he still had a full set of ribs (Genesis 1:18-23). Why does God so often communicate with women first? On our first date, my then future wife told me what God had called her to be, and what that meant in terms of the husband she needed to fulfill that revelation. Prior to that my mother had been a bit more subtle, in telling me what she and God had determined would be my future. In both cases, the…

How do we look at radical Muslims? Shortly after 9/11 a child in our church said, "We need to pray for the terrorists!"

Without thinking, I answered, "Pray that they will be caught and killed." Because of that 4 or 5 year-old boy, I had to examine my heart and my thinking in this matter. I have come to some thoughts that I would like to share with you.

Is it wrong to pray for judgment to come on our enemies? God is a God of judgment. He could not be good, holy or even loving,…

Sugar Cubes and Prayer

Many years ago I heard this illustration: Imagine a set of scales with a one-pound weight on one side and a pile of sugar cubes to be added to the other. The first few cubes added seem to make no difference in shifting the weight. Neither do the next ten cubes…or the next ten. However, by the time one hundred cubes have been added, a point is reached where the addition of one or two more sugar cube starts to tip the scales.

Praying Your Way to Silence - Part 2

As we move through life, we flow with predictable patterns of interaction with others. Sadly, so often the emotions, the cognitive content exchanged, the decisions and the delights of the world with which we interact are not in unity with God. On the contrary, they are adverse to Him. Consciously, sometimes unconsciously, we are pressured to compromise…

Praying for our country: Pride vs. humility

Much is being written here and elsewhere these days about praying for our country.  Good thoughts, wisdom shared, encouragement and hope given.  Hopefully, we're praying even more than we're writing about prayer.

I wanted to take a minute to contrast two approaches that I've personally experienced to praying for our country. 

  • Pride brings God the answers and asks him to act on them; humility brings God questions and asks for his wisdom.
  • Pride tells God who needs…

Is your prayer life in the Winter or Spring season?

In the Northwest, where we have four seasons the beautiful tulips are in full bloom reminding us of the new life that spring brings, the cherry trees are loaded with blossoms. It is a beautiful time of the year with the trees and plants that have lied dormant during the cold winter months are getting new life almost over night.   …

Declaring Your Love for God through a Disciplined Prayer Life

Samuel Lee, the great Puritan writer, argued,

Prayer is the soul’s colloquy with God, and secret prayer is a conference with God upon admission into the private chamber of heaven. When you have shut your own closet, when God and your soul are alone, with this key you open the chambers of paradise and enter the closet of divine love.…

Intercessory prayer and worship

As we slow down after the celebration (and busyness) of Easter week, what do we do now?

The last sayings of Jesus that world-changing day give us a path to tread. Watch this progression:

  • “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:32-38)
  • “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:39-43)
  • “Woman, behold your son! . . . Behold, your mother!” (John 19:26-27)
  • “My God, my God, why have you…
