I trust your thinking and know God guides you, I loved your writings in the Mag.and the blogs
I wondered if you could comment on something? Our music and the order of service is taking up so much time we don't have much time for prayer, except a prayer from our pastor. Quick and short. The woman who is now doing our music comes from the philosophy of the Purpose Driven Church, which I am aware is not really based Biblical, (no mention of the cross and redemption etc) I have mentioned to the pastor but no change. I just keep praying God opens eyes. Thank you Sherry
Brothers and sisters God will always heal our wounds (Some by decisions we have made), BUT he may leave a scar to remind us how very merciful He is! So rejoice that God has a plan, a purpose, and a future for your life!!
Thank you for referring me back to Tricia's article, really enjoyed reading it.
I found another article called Revelation of God's Glory by Prof Finney, as I was reading about Moses and he his face was shining after being with God. I thought how fun to give everyone at that prayer station a glow in the dark cross to remind them when we spend time with our Lord we shine His Glory into our world...and that we need to keep spending time with Him so we keep glowing :)
In the Pray! March/April 2003 issue you wrote on "God's Glory". I really appreciated the intro and how you described God's Glory......"When He reveals His manifest presence to us, we are so overwhelmed by ..........God........
I wondered if you have come across books or Bible studies or anything else that you thought was good. We are doing what we call a prayer summit, with about 6 stations and our theme is God's Glory. God's glory: in the fruit we bear; in the prayers we pray;in the way we serve, etc.....
I'm leading a small group that just began your book "Prayer Begins With Relationship", and I wanted to thank you for writing it. We just finished the 2nd week, and we are just completely blown away already at how it is completely changing our relationship with the Lord! It is a very powerful book and God is using it mightily already in our little group. We read in there that you are planning on continuing the series. We certainly hope so, and we can't wait for the next one - even though we haven't finished the first one yet. : )
Thank you for letting God use your journey and for writing this book. God bless you!
Yes, this coming fall we will celebrate 25 years in international student ministry at the University of Missouri-Columbia. We are now with InterFACE Ministries (www.iface.org) which is based in Atlanta, GA with Bob Culver. I've appreciated your good work with Pray over the years and have benefitted much from the magazine.
We attended the City Lights Urban Project (IVCF) in St. Louis over this Spring Break and met three international students who were sons or daughters of grad students we knew 20 years ago (2 from China, 1 from Mongolia). Their sons and daughters are now seekers looking into the life of Jesus and pursuing Him. It made us feel so old, Shirley remembered holding one of the girl's when she was a baby. Now she's a freshman in college. But it also caused us to rejoice to see the transgenerational impact of our ministry in their lives.
Our website is http://www.ifcolumbia.org Check out the prayer requests page and pray for us if the Lord leads. Praying for you and your ministry as I close.

Hi Cynthia. We've had positive responses to your article. I think a request is coming through for a speaking appointment. PLT.
could you join me in praying for a young adult who just got slammed three times in a row. He was well on his journey of new beginnings with the Lord and his new faith is being shaken.
This is an incredible new "connecting" avenue...Congrats! One Question: If we have a "How To" question, is there a place or person we address that to...who can answer it? My question is: Is there a way we can INVITE people to an event using "selected" individuals whose e-mail address are contained within my "Outlook" box. They may not be ready to actually join this Pray network, but might come to an event IF I asked them. THANKS for your counsel on this! Dennis
Still praying for you and those at the prayer retreat. In my spirit I feel certain that you made it and that the Lord is ministering to the hearts of those present. I pray that each soul will be one with Christ and the Father. May Father show His generosity and goodness as He pours His Holy Spirit upon your hearts.
Praising God, Judy
The Lord just led me to the website and I now know that you are stranded in an airport and need prayer. Of course I'll pray! How I praise Father that He is concerned about every detail in our lives. May God be glorified as He so deserves, Judy
Thanks for the welcome...I am very impressed with how this is put together. I haven't seen anything for prayer that is this organized and hands on. Thanks for this valuable tool. I will spread the word.
Thanks for your note...I am excited about this new way to experience unity in prayer with other brothers and sisters in Christ. Don't know how good I'll be at using the site, but I'm going to try! I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel, and now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Phil.1:3-6) Blessings, Judy
Cynthia, are you the one I ask questions like the following? How do I add a "readmore" key/insert. If you look at my latest blog you will see how long it is. I would like to, right after the first (or second) paragraph add a "readmore" key/insert. Thanks
