Pray for the Dad Who Rebuilds

Pray for the Dad Who Rebuilds

  I have friends who like to restore cars. I have other friends who like to restore houses. Many times we like to restore things because they are broken or because fixing something usually costs less than buying it new. But I think many enjoy the challenge of a fixer-upper because we enjoy the process

When we lift our eyes from them toward Him, we do so with loving praise, just as we look toward our oldest and dearest friends and tell them how we care for them, though they already know it…. We speak to Him as we speak to our most intimate friends — so that we can commune together in love.

Why Jesus Prayed

  I look first to Jesus for clues to the mysteries of faith, and regarding prayer He did not seem to share some of my biggest struggles. He never wondered whether God exists, whether anyone is truly listening. He never questioned the importance of prayer; indeed, He would flee a crowd of needy people in

Happiness is a decision

Don’t Pet the Peeves

Be patient, bearing with one another in love. — Ephesians 4:2 NIV He picks his teeth in public. She has this odd manner of clearing her voice every few moments. He can’t watch the news without spouting his opinions. She must apply her makeup with a putty knife. He cuts off cars in traffic. She

Women: There for You

  Editor’s note: Happy Mother’s Day to the moms and grandmas! We see you and are thankful for you! What if this overarching statement could be said about us as women? We’re there for each other. I believe this is the kind of friend we were born to be. God created us for friendship, to

Loving Jesus means loving His people… all His people. Even when it isn’t easy. Even when they are outside our comfort zone. Let’s show the world the love of Jesus by sharing the gospel in ways that accommodate them so they know they’re loved!

Learning to Love People Different Than We Are

  How Much Can You Put Up With? Listen, I know it’s hard to embrace someone else’s cultural values. Whether it’s their noise level, the smell and look of their food, their communal gatherings, or the way they look at you, talk, dress, or act, another person’s way of life often feels like a disruption.

Jesus’ Tears Give You Permission to Shed Your Own

Martha sat in a damp world, cloudy, tearful. And Jesus sat in it with her. I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in Me, even though they die like everyone else, will live again. — John 11:25 NLT Hear those words in a Superman tone, if you like. Clark Kent descending from

Moving Mountains: Praying With Bold Authority

In Jesus’ Name Why do we pray, “in Jesus’ name”? The phrase gets tacked onto the end of many prayers, but I think it has about as much meaning to us as “amen.” Amen does not mean, “That’s it . . . I’m done now,” the little period at the end of my prayer. Amen (ah-mane) is an

It’s PRAYER WEEK at FaithGateway!

Editor’s note: Our prayers matter. Prayer connects us to God. He hears us. He listens to every whisper, every cry, interprets every groan. He cares about every aspect of our lives and is working for the good in every challenge, and heartache, and complication. No matter what is going on, we believers need to go

The Power of Praying In Jesus’ Name, Amen

IT troubles you, fatigues you, shames you. IT is the disease you can’t heal, the job you can’t stomach, the marriage you can’t fix, the rage you can’t tame. IT hurts. IT looms over life. Two towering letters, tall and defiant. IT! They march like Frankenstein’s monster. Each step a thud. Each thud an earthquake.

Prayers of American Presidents

  Editor’s note: Tomorrow is the National Day of Prayer in the United States, which occurs annually on the first Thursday of May.  The modern law instituting this time to “turn to God in prayer and meditation” began in 1952, although many similar observances were held by earlier presidents. Today, we are sharing several prayers
