In Creative Intercession Allison Shorter takes out the pressure out of partnering with God and shows how this partnership can be simple, fun, and creative.
Things happen in life that makes us sad. Giving thanks in all things doesn’t remove our grief, it positions us to see the goodness of God coming from it.
One of the biggest problems that people who don’t know God have with Him is figuring out how a loving God can send anyone to hell.
God can do everything on His own. He created the heavens and the earth without our help. Why should we pray? It is more than because He commands us too.
God is not being tossed to the side waiting for a chance to get back into the discussion. He cares about our world. How do we prepare for God’s next season?
People are hungry for a touch from God. Let’s be quick to pray with others to hear our hearts and receive from God. Who knows what friends you may make?
Find out what stirs your heart; ponder how God is this for you; study the Scripture to find support for this; speak to others about what you are learning.
Since the Apostle Paul gave us the majority of the New Testament epistles, we can learn a lot from his teachings on prayer and the prayers he left for us to read.
Sometimes it is good to remind ourselves of what God says is true. Read through this list and choose to believe them over whatever you may feel is true.
If you do not see God is good, you will not ask Him for things you care about. If you are afraid He will not come through, you will not persevere in prayer.
People lose faith when God leads us differently than we expected. We are called to pursue the word of God in every situation. This leads to radical faith.
The challenges of the life of faith is real. I’m not trying to elevate my experience, however, I hope to encourage you to press on in your life of faith.
