Are Grandparents' Day of Prayer and National Grandparents the same?

Grandparents Day of Prayer and National Grandparents Day are similar but not the same. To understand their similarities and differences, we need to examine both, starting with National Grandparents Day.

National Grandparents Day

After a three-year battle that began in 1970, West Virginia housewife Marian McQuade convinced her state Congress to commemorate grandparents with a special day. This commemoration honored grandparents,…

Have you Heard about the Day of Prayer for Grandchildren?

The Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) recognizes the desperate moral and spiritual climate our grandchildren must navigate in a world hostile to truth. Satan has launched an aggressive attack on all fronts using media, technology, education, social influences, and…

For some time I have been planning to write a book on our hope in Christ. So I have decided to give you a foretaste in a regular blog. I am calling this new blog, “THE ANCHOR OF THE SOUL." 

Have you ever been in the storm from Acts 27? I did not ask if you have read it, although I recommend that you read it. I am asking if your life has been besieged by such a storm. 

It began with a gentle southerly breeze promising that the troubled seas were…

Not Sure You'll Make It to Tomorrow?

Are you going through a storm right now? Something so difficult or traumatic that you aren't sure you'll make it to tomorrow?

Don't give up hope.

It often takes a storm to get our minds off our own plans and ways and onto God's greater plan—to realize there's a purpose for our life that is…

Missionary Conference--Prayer based

On March 11, 2018, my church had a Missionary Conference, which was coordinated by our church's Missions Committee. I am on that committee, and can say that everyone working made this conference possible. The whole committee worked very hard. The conference was a blessing to the whole church.

I believe that the following was extremely important to the success of this Missionary Conference:  One member of the committee was not able to…

Day 1 Prayer: Hasten the Day

"But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God." -- 2 Peter…

PTAP: Tenacious Faith and Persistent Prayer

A Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon." But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, "Send her away, for she is crying out after us." He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." But she came and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, help me." And he answered, "It is not right to take the children's bread and throw it to the…

Jesus said it in Matthew Chapter 7. “You can't grow grapes from thorn bushes.” This applies to every area of our lives from running a marathon to raising your children. And it especially applies to writing which is the fruit of your soul. I remember reading something Baxter Black wrote on how he began writing poetry. He told about writing a poem with a religious theme for an English class in college. He got the paperback with the words writ large and in red…

Is your life painting a picture of grace?

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart”—Hebrews 4:12 (NIV).

Focused on beginning a new column, I was startled when movement outside my office window distracted me. One,, three deer were running through my yard headed to the wooded ravine behind my house. With white tails pointed upward, the three…

On the day of Pentecost Peter stood up in the midst of all the people and declared to them the gospel. In Acts 2:22 he described Jesus as,

“A man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know”

Don’t you think that was a strange way for Peter to say that. Wouldn’t you have simply said, Jesus…

Faith in the Fire: Suffering in All Kinds of Ways

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. -1 Peter 1:6-7

Peter was writing to believers who were suffering in all kinds of ways. They lived in the midst of some of the greatest miracles and revelations of…

Day 1 Prayer: Bearing Fruit in Prayer

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. -- John 15:7-8


Books about prayer promises are popular. "Ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you." Who wouldn't buy into that?


But like all promises in the Bible, this one has a context - and the context of this promise is fruitfulness. Six times in…

Praying for Planters

I first met Jim Essian when he played 3rd base for the Fort Worth Cats minor league baseball team and I worked with the team Chaplain. I next met him years later as he was starting a church in downtown Fort Worth. Many church plants don’t make it seven years, but many are not started by guys who hustle on every play, don’t mind getting their uniform dirty, and play every game to win. In seven years, Jim’s church plant has baptized over 200 people, planted another church down the road,…

Six Ways to Jumpstart Your Spiritual Life in 2018

“Humble yourself!”

He shouted it a second time.

“Humble yourself!”

It happened just after the end of the college football playoff game between Georgia and Oklahoma. As the two teams exited the field, after Georgia defeated Oklahoma in a thrilling double-overtime victory, one of the Georgia players spotted the Oklahoma quarterback and shouted those two words at him:

City Focus Prayer - Yanbu, Saudi Arabia

Yanbu is a beautiful city located on the shores of the Red Sea. The name Yanbu comes from the Arabic word for a spring. The city dates back some 2,500 years when it was a trading and caravan stopping post. Spice and incense traders would have been common.
In more recent years, the city has grown because of the oil refineries, petrochemical industry, and a large…

Day 1 Prayer: Giving Thanks for what God has done.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 tells us to give thanks in all circumstances. Although scripture instructs us to live with thankful hearts, some times of the year tend to turn our minds more than usual toward thanksgiving. For me, the start of a new year is such a time.


I enjoy looking over the previous year, recalling what God has done that I'm thankful for - kind of like how Joshua had 12 men take stones from the middle of the dried-up Jordan riverbed to create a memorial to what God…

Most of us have grown cynical about New Year's resolutions. But if we are pressed we would admit that they could be good things. Have you ever kept one? If you have, you surely think that was a good thing. But why are they so difficult to keep? I believe the fundamental problem is our approach to resolutions. We make them, and try to keep them in the flesh.

Goals are great things for Christian Believers. But they…
