A Prayer for the Right Pace

Papa,

You always have the right tempo.

You are the grand Orchestrator of Life.

Come. Be the Conductor of my spirit.

Set my pace for peace...

A Prayer for Breakthrough

Dear Jesus,

You are the Breaker that goes up before me.

You are at the head, leading the way.

You open a door for me that no one can close.

No matter what strength I have,

You keep Your Word, and fulfill Your promises.

You make waters in the wilderness,

And streams in the wasteland.

You trample upon serpents

and shut the mouths of lions...

What Was Paul's Thorn? Why Does It Matter?

Let's investigate this topic of the "thorn in the flesh." It's a big issue when it comes to healing. If we believe the thorn means disease, sickness, or infirmity, it's pretty hard to pray confidently for healing. After all, how would we know if God wants to heal, or if He wants to teach us a lesson and keep us humble? Can God even be good if He is purposefully willing sickness on us? Good questions. Let's dive in.

A Prayer For Resilience

Dear Papa,

I praise You for Your strength, grit, and tenacity.

You never lose. You never give up.

Make my spirit buoyant, like a lighthouse on the water.

Make me Lion-hearted, stubborn with fearless obedience...

 

 

Rescue Tour Recap

Today, I'd love to share 3 highlights from my Rescue Mission Tour. I had 16 events in June and traveled through Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. What an incredible time. Check it out and see some photos too...

A Declaration of DEPENDENCE

We declare our dependence on You. //

We stand grateful for the freedom to worship and honor You openly. //

Be Healing and Hope to our veterans. //

Breathe courage and protection over our troops. //

Break forth wellsprings of compassion and unity in our homeland; //

For every race, every color, and every creed. //

Bring peace and rest to every nation; to your world. //

We. Need. You...

I See Dead People...In Church

Do you believe God is willing to heal you or that family member you're praying for? Do you believe it is God's will when you lock arms to pray? If not, I totally understand. But I want to tell you I believe you are missing a huge part of Jesus' heart for you.  

Please take some time to read this all the way to the end. It is a lengthy post. But I believe it is critically important to the reboot, revival, and resurrection of the American church. Our Father wants vibrant life for us right here and now. Christianity was never meant to be a discussion about power. It was meant to display God's power. I realize this might mess with some of your theology...but I think its worth the risk. See you on the blog!

A Prayer For the "Stray"

Today, I want to share a poem/prayer I wrote

in response to an anonymous poem called, "Stray."   

You drew a line, a line in the sand.

You wrote it in blood, the love of The Lamb.

It can't be revoked, removed, or undone,

The Lamb who was slain conquered and won.

Depression must bow, despair must retreat.

Shame has been pierced, it falls at Your feet.

Does God Get His Will All the Time?

Does God always get His way? Is it God's will for acts of racism to take place? Is it God's will for unborn babies to die? Does God still work all things together for good? I wonder how many times we attribute things to God's will when in fact they are directly contradictory to His heart and will. I wonder if people can actually die before their time, before God wanted to call them home...let's dive in and talk about it.

A Prayer For Identity

You burst on the scene with salvation.

You silence every false accusation.

I am not ruined, but ransomed.

I am not forgotten, but favored.

I am not belittled, but beloved...

Are You Ready For Blessing?

I'm reading a great book called God is Good: He's Better than you think by Bill Johnson. It's incredible. Go read it when you have a moment.   //   One of the main premises of the book is this: God's goodness will draw people to Jesus in the last days. It is God's kindness that leads us to repentance. Because of this, what we need to do as believers is be a people where God's goodness can dwell, We need to be good stewards of His goodness. We need to be able to handle God's blessings while carrying our cross at the same time.

A Prayer For Trusting Without Clarity

In the waiting, in the wondering, in the wishing…

Stir up a heart full of trust.

When the answer's not here yet…

When the road is unclear…

When the direction feels circular…

Stir up a heart full of trust.

Stockpile Syndrome

What if we all stockpiled prayers? And what if those piles, those monuments, produced the kind of faith that scaled the walls of the impossible? What if those relentless prayers, the persistent pressing in for the hem of Jesus' garment, could take our "issue" and turn it into a miracle? ...

A Prayer for An Adventurous Spirit

Dear Papa,

I praise You for being the Creator and Sustainer of adventure.

You have invited me into this wide-eyed adventure of following Jesus.

Prepare my steps. Provide the way.

Silence my trepidations. Boost my faith.

Raise my courage. Increase my resolve.

Break the false spirit of fear over my life.
