“10 Now when Daniel knew that the document was signed, he entered his house (now in his roof chamber he had windows open toward Jerusalem); and he continued kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, [h]as he had been doing previously.” (more…)

Has America ever asked you to pray for “her”? Me neither. So why do we hear the phrase “pray for America”? Like it’s a sick person coughing and sneezing in need of healing. Does America breathe air and bleed blood like the rest of us? This doesn’t make sense to me as a Christian. (more…)

Like me, you probably grew up being taught to listen for God’s voice as guidance to you in your life. You may have heard stories given by pastors where they talk about a situation in their life and they said “but then the Lord said to me”. Maybe you’ve had friends in life that profess to have heard from God to do certain things. But does scripture show us that God audibly speaks to us in this way? Let’s find out. (more…)

So how do we talk to God? Perhaps for most people there’s a very simple answer to that. We just talk to Him. But what if I changed the question from how do we talk to God, to in what way does God appreciate us talking to Him? As I’ve been reading through the Gospels, having just finished up the Gospel of Matthew, one of the things that I was most struck by was the way people communicated to Jesus. Let’s look at some verses in Matthew. (more…)

What do you think the Church should be all about? We all know it centers around Christ of course, but for the purposes of this question, I’m asking what the focus of any assembling of the Body of Christ should be in it’s actions. I can probably read the various answers in your mind right now. Some of you are probably thinking church should be all about worship. Others of you are probably thinking church should be about social outreach and community work. Then some might say the church should be about gifts of the Spirit, worshiping on the Sabbath, and so on with all the other denominational traditions people choose to emphasize. I however think we get the true answer to my opening question in Acts 2. (more…)

How often should I pray? Some people are often not sure if they pray enough in their daily journey as a follower of Christ. One may see a verse such as 1 Thessalonians 5:17 which states, “pray without ceasing”, and think they should be praying as much as possible. Though if we look into other verses presented before us, perhaps we can get a better insight of how much prayer would seem desirable to God. But first, let’s see if we can dive deeper into the meaning of “praying without ceasing”. (more…)
