The Secret to Prayer

The secret to a life of prayer is not found in the word we use. It is found in an understanding of who we are speaking to. Real transformation in prayer comes as we approach God with the same confidence Jesus had.

#PrayFirst – A Call to Intercession for Refugees

Building the Church According to the Biblical Pattern

There is a sense in which Revelation 4:1 is written over the doorpost of every church. In the same way that John was taken up to show him the things that must soon take place, the church is meant to be a place on the earth where people can enter and encounter the things to come.
