The Prayer of Release Brings Freedom from Blaming God

The Prayer of Release Brings Freedom from Blaming God

My husband and I have a friend who is gifted in many ways, but he has shut God out of his life, blaming Him for a car accident in which his sister was killed and he was injured severely enough to end his promising sports career. Years after that accident, he still bitterly questions why

Prayer: Timeless Love

The scene of Jesus huddled in a locked room with a dozen friends, one of them a traitor, while outside temple guards and Roman legionnaires buckle on their swords and whips and torture devices, preparing for another dreary night’s work, stands as a tableau of human history. A hushed moment of foreboding, a heartfelt prayer,

An American in Prayer: Kneel Before the King

The Greatest of Them All 1931 was a long and boring year. The stock market crash of 1929 plunged America into the depths of the Great Depression, and most businesses struggled to stay afloat. Among the struggling businessmen was a hotelier named Conrad Hilton. Americans weren’t traveling, and hotels were suffering. Hilton was borrowing money

Faith May Move Mountains But Prayer Moves God

It’s been said that faith may move mountains, but prayer moves God.

Spiritual Warfare Is Serious

to this very serious aspect of prayer. We

Receiving and Releasing His Power in Prayer

Receiving and Releasing His Power in Prayer I heard about a little boy who went to his dad and said, “I want a little brother.”
His dad looked up from his newspaper. “Well, son,” he said, “maybe you ought to pray about that.”
So the little guy prayed every night for one month. And nothing happened. He

A Lesson in Perseverance… from a Yorkie

It had been a long weekend of delayed flights and short nights. I had finally gotten home, but Monday morning I could barely crawl out of bed. I think I was sleepwalking when I made myself a cup of coffee and headed out to the back patio with my three little dogs. And our ritual

Pocket Prayers for When You Feel Overwhelmed

Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. — Psalm 61:1–2 Father in heaven, You are the God of King David and my God too. You reign forever
