Praying Passionately, Positively, and With Praise
R9ogtlGE3MDJTU

Pray passionately. As you pray, allow yourself to be moved by God’s power and grace. Pray with an open and receptive heart. Don’t subdue your emotions—let them out! When you feel moved to tears, allow yourself to cry. When you feel the need to shout, yell! When the spirit calls yo

One key decision about a meeting can be who will pray. (Unsplash)

Most pastors tell me the most important meeting of the church is the prayer meeting. They also tell me it is the least-attended meeting in their church. I am told that people will come easy to a potluck but not to a prayer meeting. But the power of a well-attended prayer meeting is vital to a

God isn't going to fix this

The Rev. Franklin Graham has slammed The New York Daily News’ front cover declaring that “God isn’t fixing this” in the wake of Wednesday’s mass shooting in California, and argued that prayer is “direct access” to God.

“They have the audacity to criticize politicians who had publicly offered prayers and asked for God’s comfort following the killings, calling them ‘cowards who could truly end gun scourge.’ Shame on them!” Graham posted on his Facebook page Thursday night.

“I hope New Yorkers s

Faith It Till You Make It

Honestly, if it wasn't for God's grace and enduring mercies, I surely will not be here today. You know there is nothing worst than the feeling of being out of the favor of God, every time I sin I get that gut wrenching condemnation pinching feeling. Faithing it till you make it is actually not an earthly goal one should make for themselves, but the exact opposite. This should be a heavenly goal. A goal that sees no boundaries, hears no defeat.

In the Bible, prayer is an integral part of the Old and New Testaments. In fact, the Bible's first reference to prayer is in Genesis, where the first book of the Bible says humankind called on (prayed to) the Lord. (4:26). Then, too, another reference to prayer is in Revelation, the final book of the Bible. (8:4) In addition, the 64 books between Genesis and Revelation refer to prayer, or a form of the word prayer, over 500 times. 

Therefore, for you as a believer, God's Word point

The Poll Position website conducted a telephone survey of 756 people and found 43 percent think divine intervention is playing a role in Tebow's success.
The percentage is higher among young people age 18-29 (52 percent), Republicans (54 percent), African-Americans (60 pe

Arizona Day of Prayer Lawsuit

A U.S. District Court judge on Monday threw out a lawsuit against Gov. Jan Brewer over her commemoration of an Arizona Day of Prayer.

There is a disturbing trend developing in First Amendment jurisprudence; especially in the area of church and state separation.  Notwithstanding the fact that many state sponsored or endorsed religious actions appear to clearly violate the well established parameters of the First Amendment, courts are now routinely dismissing lawsuits for lack of standing.  To be c

Tim Tebow is a godly man and a good football player. There is no question about his character, the importance of his faith, and his development as a player in the NFL. 

 

But the young Denver Broncos quarterback has become a controversial figure because of the very public displays of his faith. For example, he has been recently mocked for his bended-knee prayers during games, which is now officially known as "Tebowing." But has he inadvertently brought this criticism on himself? Is praying p

Praying for Your Husband's Day

One of the biggest blessings you can give your husband is to pray for his day.

You might ask, "What's the point, what difference does it make?" It actually makes a lot of difference. Christians daily face a spiritual battle, and the choice is yours whether or not to protect yourself and your husband in prayer.

When you pray for your husband, pray specifically. If the Lord brings a specific issue to your mind during the day, stop and pray about it. Be open to the Spirit's guidance.
