In Deuteronomy 8, Moses asks God’s people, who are at the edge of the Promised Land ready to enter in, to look back and see how God had led them for 40 years to the place they were now standing. By looking back at how He provided in the past we get a clearer perspective […]

Day Seven – Teach Us To Pray

by more2life

Day Six – Teach Us To Pray

by more2life

In Luke 11:2. the second priority that the Lord reveals after that of who we are praying to is what we are praying for. Again He states very simply and succinctly: “Your kingdom come.” In Matthew 6 this is clarified further as “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Prayer is […]

Day Five – Teach Us To Pray

Yesterday (Day Four), we saw that prayer starts with the recognition of who God is not the one we try to invent. He is Creator — the God who made us. He is Sustainer — the God who keeps us. He is Redeemer — the God who seeks after and delivers us. He is The Ultimate […]

Day Three – Teach Us To Pray

Our prayer journey with Christ does not work on a religious merit system. In other words, I don’t get God to answer my prayers based on some special status I have achieved. Prayer works on a receiving system in which I take hold of by faith what He reveals to me by His grace. He […]

Day Two – Teach Us To Pray

by more2life

Prayer is not about learning a correct formula that motivates God to reluctantly give us what we ask for. It is, at the core, the pursuit of who God is – not what we can get from Him. He is inviting me to know Him, to join Him in what He is doing in and […]

Do You Want To Be Well?

by more2life

If someone were to ask you if you wanted to get well, your mind would instantly be reminded of an ailment or infirmity you have suffered from. But it is our belief that God, our Heavenly Father, wants to make us well within our souls; healing us from the inside out completely. This past week […]
