Live by Faith

We trust in the God who reaches out and receives us to Himself just as we are.

Desperate Times

Please pray. We can't settle for anything less than a heavenly visitation.

Be Thankful!

In the midst of our hardships, we can rejoice over the things that are not wrong in our lives.

A Charismatic Enron?

Those leaders with a spirit of entitlement should be disqualified.

Spiritual Weapons

The Word, praise and prayer defeat the devil faster than any other battle plan.

Live Amazed!

Doing things to impress people and to be admired are not good motives for serving God.

Open Your Borders

My immigrant friends, have made my life richer and more colorful.

Simply Pray

God wants our communication with Him to be unencumbered by rules and legalism.

 Do you realize that even directing a thought toward God qualifies as silent prayer? It's true! Whether you have been praying for years, are just learning to pray, have hit a "slump" in your spiritual life or simply want your prayer life to improve, know this: God wants you to learn to pray more effectively, and He wants your prayer life to become more fulfilling.

Short, simple prayers can be mighty beyond description, but this does not take away from the fact that prayer is also a grand mystery. Watchman Nee, a Chinese Christian who wrote many profound books while imprisoned for his faith, wrote: "Prayer is the most wonderful act in the spiritual realm, as well as a most mysterious affair."

Hurricane Warning

God is so serious about holiness that He will expose religious corruption.

Change Your Mind

I feel bombarded at times by less-than-lovely thoughts, but I don't let them dictate my life.

Storm the Gates

Effective prayer cannot be half-hearted. This is war.

No More Masks

We can change the outiside, but we can't revise who we really are deep down inside.


So many times we struggle to be real. We act one way on the outside, but we're actually different on the inside. Because we have weaknesses, faults and fears—things that we think make us less likable or desirable—we'd rather hide them from other people.

Over time, we devise masks to effectively hide our blemishes and give others a different perception of who we really are. In fact, we've become so comfortable with our masks that we forget we're wearing them.
