Let’s Pray for America!

For the National Day of Prayer this week, let’s just pray for America. Here’s a scriptural prayer we can pray today and any day. It’s so vital that we keep praying.

Why Pray Continually?

Why pray continually? Doesn’t God hear our prayer the first time? Why do we sometimes have to pray the same thing over and over and over? We walk in a dangerous place. Sometimes deceptively beautiful, but the war between good and evil rages on because the enemy (satan) is relentless. You may be facing a…

What does it mean that God is a mighty fortress? While I appreciate hymns very much, I like the simpler language and musical style of the contemporary Christian music. However, at a recent writers conference, the old hymn, “A Mighty Fortress is Our God” was sung, which I hadn’t heard in a long time. It…

Keep Praying

What do we do when life is messed up? What do we do when things seem worse instead of better? Life can be that way sometimes. Jesus told us in the world we would have troubles, and that He would overcome (John 16:33). But what do we do in the meantime? It’s interesting to look…
