The One Cry Prayer Summit

Chronicle XXI in the Forty Days of Prayer Venture. Conversations with God date back to Adam and Eve.  God spoke with them in the Garden of Eden.  From the lines of Genesis 3, it appears to me that it was a habitual event.  Later, Adam must have set an example of worship at an altar …

Chronicle XX in the Forty Days of Prayer venture. National security has been uppermost on my mind for months, maybe the last several years since September 11, 2001.  I have been more careful to prayer about our national safety during these forty days.  While I understand that my security lies in the hands of God, …

Clean?

Chronicle XIX in the Forty Days of Prayer John 15:3 “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.”   These are the words of Jesus.  If you have a red-letter edition of the Bible, these words are in red.  In fact, all of John 15 is in red letters.  Jesus is …

The first time I voted. . .

40 days of Prayer, XVII

My Can Opener

This is chronicle XVI but also a double in everyday thinking.  God uses such ordinary things to teach me about myself.  He can do the same for you.  Here it is. This morning I was opening a can of spaghetti sauce and as the opener smoothly circumvented the can top, I recalled the story of …

The Risk

Chronicle XV in the 40 days of prayer venture. Last night I took more time than usual to pray for our Nation as well as for the Presidential debate that was airing simultaneously.  In the afternoon I had prepared several subjects with which to approach the Throne of God.  (Let me give you a hint:  …
