Prayer Note

I kept thinking about my friend and brother in the Lord while I went about my business. When I ran an errand, when I helped the neighbor, and as I was cutting firewood; so I decided to call and find out what was happening with my friend. As soon as I asked, he described the… Continue reading Prayer Note

Hearing Our Voice

"I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live. The snares of death encompassed me; the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me; I suffered distress and anguish. Then I called on the name of the Lord: 'O Lord,… Continue reading Hearing Our Voice

Attempted History Revision

It was immediately after an NFL playoff game, the numerous cameras were scouring the crowd of players, media reporters, officials and staff who poured over the field. I can imagine the camera director barking orders to cut from camera to camera. "Zoom in on Belichick's face," capture that anger. "Ok, the Head Coaches are meeting,… Continue reading Attempted History Revision

Intercession and Forgiveness

We have a great privilege to be intercessors for others.  To Intercede means to make petition in behalf of another.  We see the prophet Daniel making intercession in prayer, "While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the Lord my God for… Continue reading Intercession and Forgiveness

Prayer Group

I've been in many prayer groups, most were great.  We had a small one at work that did exploits in the Spirit among people, organizations, crossing boundaries.  The one most unusual was with a group of women, who allowed me to join them, (I had secured my wife's concurrence and she knew them all).  This… Continue reading Prayer Group

Prayer Reminder

The scriptures remind us to pray, even to do so continually. (1 Thess. 5:17).  I trust you to implement 'continually' as you best discern, but I want to remind you of an equally, perhaps more important necessity, which is to pray with faith.  My boots were worn out, so I started wearing my hikers to… Continue reading Prayer Reminder

Someone is in anguish now over a destiny they see passing away.  This person is distressed from waiting and taunts from rivals.  Nevertheless, hope is found in the Lord.

Things Hidden and Revealed

There are some things that are to be hidden and others that are to be shown to others. "Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before… Continue reading Things Hidden and Revealed

On… Continue reading Be Devoted To Prayer

Holy Spirit In Prayer

  Agreement is important in prayer.  Agreement first must be with God's will.  Agreement is also available from the Word of God - when we pray scripture.  Recently, I had a need in my family, it was known by others and seemingly getting more urgent.  I didn't have faith to say anything, and I knew… Continue reading Holy Spirit In Prayer

One Man Praying

An impromptu prayer time was announced at church and I heard about it; as an intercessor I was interested to join with other intercessors.  Also, I was curious about how many would show up, and how it would proceed.  There was no announced time, so anything, including nothing might be seen.  I went, the carpet cleaner… Continue reading One Man Praying
