Spiritual Warmup

I’m preparing for a new breakthrough in Spirit led prayer. Since the natural comes before the spiritual, (1 Cor. 15:46), some natural warm up might be appropriate. We might greet, then stretch, move about, brief minor calisthenics of the body, work out any stiffness, get flexible, prepare for action. Then, for stretching of the mind […]

Prayer Debriefing 6

Lord, Yeshua, you are sending your message to those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. Draw them with cords of your love and set them free from the enemy’s lying deception. Open blind eyes and plant your seed of faith – let faith arise. Welcome all who are burdened and weary, Yeshua will give you […]

Prayer Debriefing 5

For each follower of this blog we are praying. Our prayer is that you will not be discouraged in trials or when you stumble, but you will confess and plunge under the ever flowing fountain of God’s mercy and grace through the Blood of Yeshua. Knowing you will be whiter than snow, hearing joy and […]

Prayer Debriefing 4

Lord, help us stand firm for our loved ones, even when there is a gulf between us of offense, hurt, failure, disappointment, or misunderstanding. Give us your compassion and humility so we will not give up and continue with faith that you can do all things. Restore and redeem us, so the enemy will be […]

Prayer Debriefing 3

For those who have family concerns, I’m praying that out of His great compassion He will give you wisdom, strength and mercy to help and love your family members in need. These situations can be most trying, but know as you serve and help your family, you are in the center of God’s will. You […]

Prayer Debriefing Issue 2

As I was praying over our followers, some are just blog names, I saw many reasons to read our posts and follow the Conservative Christian Apologist. God is working, inspiring prayers, answering them, working miracles, touching hearts, all in His unseen ways. We all are part of His plans, everyone, even those opposed to us.  […]

Beginning To Believe

We talk about faith, believing, accepting, relying upon what we know to be true. There are degrees with these words, but in their pure full meaning, convictions and commitments emerge. Then, we are changed from bystanders, students, apprentices and enthusiasts to something much more. It is the difference that Yeshua, (Jesus’ Hebrew name) talked about […]

Blog Prayer Debriefing Issue 1

This month we hit the ground running with prayers of spiritual warfare for victory over demonic attacks, oppression, and footholds. It surprised me, considering you are Believers strong in faith and the Word, but the enemy is not concerned with those in his prisons, but rather with the saints who are tearing them down. So, […]

God’s Way

I once heard a minister who taught that God responds to prayer, which is scriptural. However, he extended it much further, such that we have been granted great authority through prayer to change the world or refuse to pray and allow the enemy to prevail. I don’t want to get into an argument about doctrine […]

Spiritual Service

When I consider a lifetime of Spiritual exercise what stands out is prayer, intercession, and supplication. As a child some of my earliest memories are prayer conversations with God. That conversation never stopped, but it changed and grew in faith and knowledge. Anything that was accomplished was God’s grace and was effected in conjunction with […]

God in the Small Things

We needed to pour some concrete, quite a bit of it. We found a concrete contractor who began in a few days. I thought it good business to pay as we went and he was willing for me to pay the supplier directly for the cement. I assumed I could pay by check, but as […]

A Return to Prayer and Faith

There are two aspects of the Kingdom of God that are critical for the Congregation of Believers today.  The first is a restoration of the practice of prayer and intercession. It is necessary for every follower of Yeshua to become an active member of God’s army of prayer warriors. (Eph. 6: 18) Some will find they […]

Your Prayer Ministry

Any Believer can serve God and his fellow man through prayer ministry. This ministry is fully in the service of God and provided for in scripture. Moreover, the anointing of the Holy Spirit is provided to those with faith. All things pertaining to God require faith. There is no requirement that others participate together, but […]

The Intercession of God

“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” Luke 22:31-32.  “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit […]

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 […]

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, […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Election Day Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank you that we can go to the polls and vote for our political leaders. Thank You for any God-fearing candidates who are on the ballots.  Give them wisdom and boldness to represent positions that support Your Word and Your Will. Help us to be good stewards with our financial resources so that […]

Hannah’s Anguish

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. Carry your burden and pour it out before Father God, He has compassion for the broken-hearted. This was the situation for Hannah and she prayed fervently […]

Satan’s Teat

1 Peter 2:2-3 “Like newborn babies, thirst for the pure milk of the word so that by it you may grow in your salvation.  Surely you have tasted that the Lord is good!” Scripture encourages us to study God’s Word in order to grow in the Lord. Learning and applying God’s Word to our lives, […]

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 […]

Be Devoted To Prayer

  Be devoted to prayer is the exhortation in Colossians 4:2.  You will find this a very simple thing do to as you walk and live in the leading of the Holy Spirit.  As with many things Spiritual, we have believed lies that it was either a concentrating strained effort or else a drudgery. On […]
