“All good is born in prayer, and all good springs from it”
― Rick Warren,
“All good is born in prayer, and all good springs from it.”
“The most important thing a born again Christian can do is to pray.”
1) Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.” John 14:6
The emphasis is on the word “TRUTH.” Jesus does not lie. In Jesus we find the TRUTH and know the TRUTH. He will not lead us astray.
2) “Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.” John 14: 1
Jesus does not want us to worry. That’s why He says that our hearts should not be troubled.
3) “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
Jesus gives us peace and joy through the Third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit.
4) “Trust in the Lord with…

“Put very simply, Satan’s power in the world is everywhere. Yet wherever men and women walk in the Spirit, sensitive to the anointing they have from God, that power of his just evaporates. There is a line drawn by God, a boundary where by virtue of his own very presence Satan’s writ does not run. Let God but occupy all the space himself, and what room is left for the evil one?”
When things go better and are starting to look up, BAM!, slapped in the face with greater evils you had before. It never fails. It happens every stinking time. It becomes a struggle to survive, rather than flourish, you have to focus to get a job completed. And the offender, of course, appears to be living large, enjoying life in full. For every pain they poke into your heart, they seem to get $100. Or more. You do everything right. You pray every prayer for the offender, for ourselves, in praise and worship. You read every verse in the Bible on the subject. You read well meaning books that are supposed to help. You ask other people to pray for you and your situation. You do everything right. And BAM!, slammed down again. Why? Is God not caring about your particular hardships? Well, no, because we are promised in His…

Man shoots Charleston church, ISIS is still destroying stuff and killing people, racists are burning African-American churches, and some jerks are throwing acid in girls’ faces in Afghanistan. Tomorrow something else may happen. We don’t know, but we do know our world is hectic. Honestly, in the midst of so much chaos do we expect things to get better? Well, we should. Jesus expects us to pray that it will get better.
Have you ever read the Lord’s prayer? You probably have, you may be able to quote it. If you don’t know, it it’s not hard to find, grab your phone and google “The Lord’s Prayer.” Technology is great. Notice a phrase in there which says, “Your Kingdom come”? You may have heard this phrase, and if you know any pious Christians you probably have heard it more than once. This phrase is pretty much over looked in the…

Church isn’t what we think it is. Some people think it is a building. Others think church is what we do when we are in a building at a certain time. But church is so much more than that. If you are a follower of Jesus – someone who has surrendered their life to God – you are the church. When believers get together, it is called a church gathering. There are a large number of church gatherings that are emptying out at a steady pace. There are many and varied reasons for this but the underlying reason is that church gatherings are dry. For too long the church has been busy with all sorts of things instead of creating an environment where people can experience God. People are not experiencing God in church gatherings because the church is not praying like it should. When we pray for others, things…
