Pray Them Home: Prayers for Prodigal Children

0 Comment

I once was that prodigal child — lost, angry, and struggling to find my identity. Hardened on the outside, but deeply hurting within. The pain of my choices was not only destroying me, but creating heartache within our family and severing my relationships with the people who loved me most. By God’s grace, my parents did […]

Pray Big Things for Your Little Ones

How do we pray for our children when our words seem to run dry? How do we faithfully lift them before the Lord with confidence that our prayers match hisdesires for them? When we’re not sure of how to pray, God’s word enables us to stand with him and lift our children before his throne with […]

The Sin That Will Stop God’s Ears From Hearing Your Prayers


​I am moved by God’s emotion in Jeremiah 17—His words to describe His love for His people and the land He gave to them. How grieved He is over their sin and the judgment that He must pass upon them (of course, this is seen through all of scripture)! “O, My mountain in the field” […]

Seven Ways to Pray on Election Day

0 Comment

Our Father and God, We acknowledge that in this election you are, as it were, holding up a mirror to America. You are showing us who we are as a nation. We may not like what we see, but the two major party candidates represent us well. Lies, corruption, selfishness, unbridled ambition, shameless sexual immorality […]

Do You Pray Enough?

0 Comment

Guilt is a terrible motivator for any behavior, except repentance. We cannot sustain ongoing spiritual disciplines, such as prayer, from a sense of guilt. That’s not what guilt is designed to achieve, and it’s why feeling bad over not praying enough will never turn us into men and women who “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). […]
