The End Result of Praying

After church Sunday I left to take a study retreat. Internet access is limited and I am currently sitting outside something called the “Activity Outpost” since it is not yet open and is the only place around here (Flint, Texas) that has wireless service. My fingers are feeling a little stiff and I have to […]

Powerful Praying

Two comments about my sermon that were pointed out to me more than once:1. “Did you know that you said, ‘Eat more and exercise less’ at the end of your sermon?” I knew that I said something wrong but was not sure what it was. When in doubt, my preferred option is to just keep […]

Persistence in Prayer

We humans are so impatient. We don’t like to wait at traffic lights, drive through windows, restaurants, the DMV, the post office, or any place else! We live in a fast paced society and expect things to move along quickly. It’s difficult enough to make time to pray, but when we do we expect God […]

Wrestling in Prayer

Throughout the reel prayer series I have used clips from roughly three dozen movies. Of these movies there are few that I would highly recommend for all ages. Evan Almighty, however, is a movie that you can watch with your whole family. It is lighthearted and fun, but it also raises some wonderful questions that […]

Honest Prayer

Someone asked about the name of the last movie clip I showed today during the sermon. It is called the Apostle. After seeing the movie some told me they felt the preacher, named Sonny, was a fraud. I had a different opinion. To me he was an honest man who had a terrible time dealing […]

Be Faithful in Prayer

Was it just me or did the assembly seem especially alive this morning? Perhaps it was the combined praise team and choir up front which made the sanctuary fill with the sound of voices praising God. Or, maybe it is just the climate that is being created in our church as we plan our next […]

The Prayer of Surrender

I have been excieted about preaching this sermon on surrender all week. It was not as much about what I planned to say as it was what I sensed God wanted to do in people’s hearts. What would a revival of our church look like? Perhaps we caught a small glimpse this morning as a […]

Ritual Prayer

I listen carefully to comments made to me after a sermon. After preaching I wonder what people heard while I was preaching, what resolutions they made in their own mind, what questions were raised, etc… I received several interesting comments today. One person expressed disappointment that I did not use the King James version when […]

Prayer and Humility

For those who would like more information concerning Ruby Bridges I have three recommendations. The movie, “Ruby Bridges” is an accurate portrayal of the events that I described in the sermon. It appears to be largely based on the information found in the children’s book, The Story of Ruby Bridges, by child psychiatrist, Robert Coles. […]
