Share the Candymaker’s Gift with your Grandchildren

As your Thanksgiving dinner is digesting I would like to share with you a presentation of The Candymaker’s Gift produced by my friends David and Helen Haidle. The Candymaker’s Gift is an excellent story to share with your grandchildren during this Christmas season about the real meaning of Christmas. You can show it to them or you can send it to them in an…

I pray that all of you are enjoying a wonderful celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the expressions of thanks to our Lord I have heard or heard about this year. One of the greatest blessings I have seen is the number of people posting daily thanksgivings on Facebook every day this month.

And with the many other expressions I would like to suggest a wonderful offering of thanks. Give thanks to God by giving to people in need. Jesus said “In as much…

Thankful in All Circumstances

“If those who have passed on before us wore such beautiful crowns in such times of strain and stress, our mouths should always be pouring forth tidal waves of blessing as the Holy Spirit has His way in these human bodies of ours and produces in us an eternal work: For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory (2 Corinthians 4:17).” Brenda Poinsett

It is not…

Have you wondered why we see so little power in the American church that was so blessed of God in by gone days? I have often thought it is because we depend on methods rather than prayer and the moving of the Spirit. If God blessed us in a shockingly supernatural way, who would get the glory? Our clever leaders and great methods?…

Book Review of Help, Thanks, Wow: Three Essential Prayers by Anne Lamott

Summary: SHORT, but helpful look at the essence of prayer.

I am not an Anne Lamott devotee.  So I do not read everything she writes.  But I have read enough to know that she is a very good author and one that looks at spiritual realities from a different perspective.

So one day last month I was tired of all of my audiobooks I had been listening too and…

Central African Republic (CAR) is French-speaking and its population is around 76 percent Christian. On Sunday 24 March 2013, Seleka - a coalition of local and foreign Arabic-speaking Islamic militias - seized control of the capital, Bangui, in an orgy of violence and looting. But Seleka does not rape, loot and kill…

Three Praying People God Won't Hear - by Eddie Smith

Oh, I know, some folks think God hears every prayer. But that's just not the case. I can think of at least three categories of people God refuses to listen to.

First, God won't hear a person who regards iniquity.

David the psalmist wrote, "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear" (Psalm 66:18 nkjv, emphasis added). To regard iniquity is not synonymous with a…

"Teach Us To Pray"

Teach Us To Pray - 5


based on Matthew 6:9-13  

    This is our final message of this series where Jesus has been teaching us how to pray.  And I’m going to try to bring it altogether this morning with the question … what do we pray about when it comes time to pray?

    Last year I started noticing that our car was drifting to one side as I drove.  I kept putting off doing anything about it, and by the time I finally had it…

Praying Through

As word spread of my radiation treatments, the responses began to flood in – via E-mails, Facebook entries, Twitter posts, Cards, Telephone calls, Personal visits – everything from a simple, “Praying for you” to much more creative, imaginative expressions of support.  One particular response caught my attention. “We’re praying you through,” a friend wrote. It caused me to remember what God said to His promised people, “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you…

In recounting all the miraculous things that God did in starting churches out of Faith Baptist Church in Saskatoon, Henry Blackaby has said, “And God was never late.” But he adds that his wife would say, “He was never a minute early either.” God often tests and develops our faith with the timing of answered prayers. He sometimes answers long after it seems to be too late.

It may seem too late when the other team is ahead by two points with only five seconds on the clock in a hard…

Chicago's Well Springs of Revival Project, Please Pray

Ever since I was a student at Moody Bible Institute, I have had a burden for revival in Chicago. When I was Director of Promotions for Channel 38, I still had this burden for the city and in the early to mid 1980's we were able to heavily promote this work of the Lord through the media, Billboards, radio etc.…

Adoniram and Ann Judson arrived in Burma as pioneer missionaries in 1813. Adoniram Judson endured grief upon grief, severe hardship, dangers, persecutions and imprisonment to translate the Bible into the Burmese language and led many to Christ. At that time, Burma was a feudal society, dominated by ethnic Burmese (Bama)…

Most of us are aware that Jesus castigated the Pharisees and even the scribes who were the Bible teachers among the people. But their theology would pass almost any test for doctrinal soundness. The Pharisees were the theological conservatives of that day.

So if their doctrine was sound, why did Jesus attack them so vociferously? The problem was with the motivation of their hearts. They behaved and believed and prayed like they did to impress people rather than God.

In Matthew…

Support our Deployed Military Troops and Their Families with Prayer

 As Veteran's day approaches, we are reminded of our military families and those who have served our country in the military. There are many U.S. troops in our military deployed all over the world leaving families back home and don’t hear the laughter of their loved ones. They only have memories of their loved ones and long for the time they will be back home again. Many times their families see the importance of their mission but the remaining parents, spouse and children struggle…

A Thought for Today about Election Day

And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn’t happen.”…
