As a Christian writer, I feel it's important to publish prayers on the internet. The web is filled with so many discouraging and distressing words. Prayer is the antidote. When words of prayer fill the internet, not only do these words offer hope and encouragement. They also speak spiritual change over the online atmosphere.

Now … Later … Yes … Not

A fellow intercessor and I were just talking about how easy it is to feel schizophrenic when listening to God and praying for people. If you're an intercessor, you can probably relate to this feeling. Not just intercessors, either. Any follower of Christ can feel this way. It's that question we all have when God … Continue reading Now … Later … Yes … Not

Singing Prayers

Earlier this month, I enjoyed watching the movie, Martin Luther: The Idea that Changed the World. One moment that really spoke to me was how Martin Luther encouraged singing in church services.

Why Aren’t We Desperate?

I was talking yesterday with a friend who just returned from Uganda. She spent several weeks with a neighborhood ministry that had requested inner healing prayer. As she shared about the desperate situation and the hunger in the people's hearts, she also lamented that she seldom finds that kind of hunger here at home. We … Continue reading Why Aren’t We Desperate?
