LISTENING

LISTENINGListening is one of the most powerful tools you can employ to improve your preaching. Of course, we primarily need to listen to God. In Isaiah 55:3 God calls us to do just that.“Give ear and…Continue

3 WALKING YOUR SERMON

Every week when I was a pastor, I did what I called walking my sermons. Although this depends on the Biblical foundations I wrote about last week, I believe it is the most valuable advice I can give…Continue

PREACH THE WORD

What I am teaching is expository or direct Biblical preaching. I believe there is a place for topical preaching and apologetic, or subject teaching. But you will find great power in sharing what God…Continue

Malva Birch commented on David Young's blog post INCONSEQUENCIAL PRAYERS
"David, years ago I was very uncertain if it would be ok to pray about small, fleeting things but things that did concern/worry me. So I asked God about it. He said that if a small thing is big enough to worry me, it is big enough to give it to…"

INCONSEQUENCIAL PRAYERS

Do you ever find yourself praying, maybe even urgently, about things that really don't matter very much? Interestingly enough, we find some prayers like that in the Bible. In fact, Jesus began his supernatural ministry by answering a prayer for something that really didn't matter a great deal. In the second chapter of John Jesus performed his first public miracle. He turned water into wine at a wedding…See More

GROWING NEARER

Are you growing nearer to God in prayer?We are familiar with John 15 that says our Lord is the vine and we are His branches. Jesus applies that wonderful picture in the verses that follow.“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 15:7,8This morning I prayed, “Lord, help me find the remote control.” Many of our prayers are trivial. In fact…See More

FROM HIS FULLNESS

“And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.”John 1:16It is important for us to understand something theologians have called, "Common Grace." God is not simply working in the lives of believers. He is at work in every human being. “We have all received grace upon grace.” Every throb of your heart muscle, every breath of air and the ability of your body to draw oxygen is given by God through His Creator/Sustainer…See More

THE WORD OF ENLIGHTENMENT

I am astounded by the number of deep truths that rise to the surface of John chapter 1. Some of them are expressed by the reciprocating metaphors of the word and the light. Look with me at these verses.John 1:1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.John 1:4In him was life, and the life was the light of men.John 1:9-14The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world…See More

WE ARE ALL GULLIBLE AT DIFFERENT POINTS

WE ARE ALL GULLIBLE AT DIFFERENT POINTSI have recently been enthralled by some of the writing of Rachel Held Evans. She has written some powerful things illuminated by thrilling stories. It may not surprise you that I do not agree with her in some points. But I do recognize her as a fellow believer in Christ.In honest disclosure, at the beginning of her book Inspired she gave a long list of…See More

WHY DO YOU ASK MY NAME?

WHY DO YOU ASK MY NAME?One of my favorite events in scripture is the night Jacob wrestled with God. I don't believe you find anything like this in any religious teaching other than the Bible. The God who created the universe humbles Himself to wrestle with a man. The story is in Genesis 32.Jacob feared that he and his family would be attacked by his brother, Esau, and an army of 400 men with him. Jacob sent his family and all his…See More

THE SIN OF THE CHURCH

What sin is enveloping the church in these days?Any sin is serious. And God's people are not immune to the enemy’s temptations, although we are given armor against them. To some extent, it is not unusual for God’s people to be sucked into whatever sin dominates our culture. But those who desire to be godly will seek deliverance from the sin of the world around us.The sin that is shaking our country is slander. It is prevalent on Facebook and other social media. It seems to have consumed…See More

David, I'm sorry to take so long to get back to you - have been sick for a couple of weeks and not on PN.  Try this link for the China prayer cast - I got it directly from YouTube.

David, apologies for taking so long to get back to you - my recent out-of-state move has pretty much dominated my time and I'm only now getting back to being on PN consistently.  I appreciate what you shared and the heart of integrity behind it.  You are a great example to me! 

I would also say that praying for the SC justices by name and simply leaving in God's hands how he wants to work in their lives and through their rulings is a very valid way to pray.  The strength of our prayers is not in the words, but in the One to whom we pray - not that you need to hear that from me!!
