The Bible says this universe is ruled by the mighty will of a sovereign God. On the other hand, it says our prayers make things happen. How can both of these things be true? God is deeply affected by our prayers.
God is right here. Closer than you ever dreamed--as near as your breathing. He's waiting to be touched. That makes prayer so simple. All Adam has to do is lift a finger. Any time, day or night, you can too.
Have you ever felt like caving in? What's the use in such continued suffering? The prescription for discouragement isn't alcohol or shopping or vacations. It's a glimpse at God's majesty in worship.
SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 40
How do we explain the silence of God? Jesus' own prayers went unanswered. How can Jesus' own forsakenness on the cross help me with unanswered prayer?
SCRIPTURE: Psalm 22
Prayer is a spiritual discipline. If you're going to be a disciple, you need to exercise discipline. Discipline isn't like eating your broccoli as much as it is creating space in your life for God to work.
SCRIPTURE: Mark 1:32-39
God wills that you pray; God delights in it and really wants it. Prayer is as central to the meaning of the created universe as you can get. He's near as your breathing. Just lift a finger.
SCRIPTURE: Luke 1:1–13
You can have a faith as orthodox as a bishop and still be a train wreck. Does the Christian life promise more than it can deliver? Learn the key to happiness, according to the Bible.
SCRIPTURE: Psalm 1
