It's time for Christians to Pray and to Rise Up in Ministry

Posted Nov 2nd 2008, 12:24 by Making a Difference with Prayer on Prayer

As followers of Christ we have been given all things that pertain to life and godliness (1 Pet 1:3), and we have been blessed with ever spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ (Eph 1:3).
Yes, we need to pray - yet, not from a place of worry or fear. The Lord has blessed His people and given us abundant life (John 101:10) and we have been filled with His fullness.

Jesus is greater than the circumstances

Posted Oct 18th 2008, 11:44 by Making a Difference with Prayer on Prayer

I thank God that He is greater than the financial mess the US in in. I am thankful that He is greater than all the financial and political advisers, that He is greater than the new media and all the commentators. I am thankful that the Lord Jesus Christ is greater than all, even greater than McCain and Obama.
As followers of Christ, as believers, as Christians - we put our hope in the living God. We put our hope in...

Count Your Blessings

Dear Friends and Intercessors;
Most of us at some time in our life have shared this phrase with another, or have had it shared with us. While it is simple, it is powerful. It can lift our vision and it can get us out of a negative mindset, and most importantly can help get our focus on the Lord instead of the circumstances.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, because it always reminds me to focus on the Lord...

Worship - It's not just for Sunday Morning

Posted Aug 31st 2007, 09:01 by Making a Difference with Prayer on Prayer

Dear Friends and Intercessors;
The exciting thing about life with the Lord and our relationship with Jesus is that it is real and it pleases Him. We know that prayer is more than just reading off a list of needs, it is about a two way communication, it is about communion with the Lord. When we are active and involved with our relationship, when we really "enter in" we can find that it is not just only about praying....

The Inspired Word of God

God is liberal and free with His Word. He is constantly speaking to His people through the Bible and through the indwelling Holy Spirit. The Word is rich with many examples and narratives about people hearing from God, it is rich with all sorts of promises about Him speaking to us. God loves relationship and looks for an ongoing dialog with each and every one of us. Our personal relationship with Jesus is special and as...

Being Wise Virgins

Posted Aug 13th 2007, 08:39 by Making a Difference with Prayer on Prayer

In Matt 25 Jesus taught about the importance of being a wise virgin. In His teaching He contrasts 5 foolish virgins with 5 wise virgins. All 10 were virgins, all 10 had lamps, all 10 were waiting for the bridegroom, and all 10 slumbered as the bridegroom was delayed.
The only difference in this story is that 5 are counted wise because they had oil for their lamps; the unwise had no oil. The five wise were received into...

They Had Been With Jesus

Posted Jul 28th 2007, 09:36 by Making a Difference with Prayer on Prayer

Prayer in its basic form is simply communication, or communion, with God. Another way to say this is talking with God or just spending time with Him. It is about relationship and letting Him share His love and heart with us. Prayer is so much more than working through a "shopping list" or "wish list" with the Lord; it is about being with Him. Rom 12;1-2 tells us that as we present ourselves to God He transforms us, or starts...
