PRAY (DAY 35) – Fiercely Dependent

Joshua 24:14-15 “So fear the Lord and serve Him wholeheartedly…But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve…” Fiercely independent. It’s a high valued description in our culture. We are an independent people. We don’t like asking for help. We pull ourselves up by our boot straps. We work […]

Pray (Day 34) – What Prayer Does

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Ephesians 4:16 I’m a huge fan of C.S. Lewis. I’ve read almost all his books (except English Literature in the 16th Century Excluding Drama, which is really long […]

PRAY (Day 33) – Ordinary Prayers to an Extraordinary God

James 5:16b-18 “…the earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces great results. Elijah was a human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth […]

Pray (Day 32) – Pray Listen and Obey

James 1:22 – Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. My friends at Adventures in Missions have played an instrumental role in shaping my prayer life.

Pray (Day 31) – Fasting

Matthew 6:16: When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. I am always convicted by the first three words of Matthew 6:16. The author is making the assumption that we […]

Pray (Day 29) – Prayer Verses from KidMin Voices

Throughout this series, I’ve been relating some of my personal experiences and talking about verses I like. But this week, I polled the KidMin team, asking them to tell me what their favorite scripture about prayer was and why, to get a few more voices in on this blog project. Here are my teammates’ answers, along with […]

PRAY (Day 28) – On All Occasions

Jonah 2:2  “I cried out to the LORD in my great trouble, and He answered me.” I’m amazed that God is always there when I cry out to him. He’s available. No busy signal. No dropped calls. Scripture calls me to cry out in desperation to God. And often times that’s exactly what I do, […]

Pray (Day 27) – Pray Scripture… Again

Last week I suggested the exercise of praying scripture to provide direction and power to your prayer life.  We are going to do it again today. God is love…We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:8b, 19 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is […]

Pray (Day 26) – My Five

Luke 18:1-5: One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up. “There was a judge in a certain city,” he said, “who neither feared God nor cared about people. A widow of that city came to him repeatedly, saying, ‘Give me justice in this dispute […]
