Changed Again ??

Posted on February 11, 2014 at 8:25 AM Comments comments (1)

If you have been connected with my website for awhile you will notice that the website has changed.... AGAIN ! Part of the reason was that I like to keep things fresh. But the big reason why I changed the look and feel of this site was because one day as I sat at the desk looking at the website, I asked myself the question, "What is the purpose of my website ?" And the second question followed - "Does the website reflect the purpose ?" In the beginning the site had images that ...

Keeping it Simple

Posted on February 11, 2014 at 7:40 AM Comments comments (1)

The other day I received a message from someone on Facebook with the simple statement of "most times I just don't know how to pray". That honest statement made me realize, that some times when we have been doing something for so long, that we just don't realize how complicated we make things. This got me thinking about how we teach prayer in Sunday School. If you have struggled with just ...

Just like Breathing

Posted on August 12, 2013 at 1:05 PM Comments comments (5)

In the familiar hymn, Breathe on Me, Breath of God, we read the words- "Breathe on me breath of God, Fill me with life anew". What is this life ? Its not biological life, because we are physically alive while asking for this "life". If it was biological life, we would be dead and therefore wouldn't be able to make the request, "breathe on me breath of God". The question remains, what is this "life" that we are asking for in this hymn. From the context of the hym...

Why the Site has Changed

Posted on June 28, 2013 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (4)

If you have been a member to this site for a while, you will have noticed that it looks different. Before, the site  depicted some very nice armour, chain mail, helm and sword. Also, the site was called - Prayer Warrior. No I have not abandoned any sense of being called as a prayer warrior. Rather, I have been taught by Jesus, another form of spiritual warfare praying. Until Jesus completes the fullness of His Kingdom, there will always be a spiritual war b...

The Discipline of Yielded Silence

Posted on April 3, 2013 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (5)

Last Friday evening during our 24 Hour Prayer Vigil that runs from noon Good Friday to noon Saturday, the Lord spoke to me. It was during my hour of prayer from 9 pm until 10 pm. Over the last couple of weeks I have been wrestling with the Lord over some theological issues, trying to understand some perspectives from scripture and trying to get a handle on some personal spiritual issues. As I sat at the Communion table engaged in worship and then moving into a t...

I remember a long long time ago a conversation that I had with a member of a congregation. And this person explained that the reason why they didn't go to Bible study was because they didn't understand the Bible. After recovering from my initial shock and confusion, I asked, "Well, do you read and study it on your own ?" "No," the person replied, "I told you I don't understand it so I don't bother. I get what I need on Sunday." I was incredulous ! I was also inc...

Seek First the Kingdom

Posted on January 8, 2013 at 7:50 AM Comments comments (13)

Yesterday morning I had an encounter with Jesus as I was praying in the Sanctuary. As I was praying for the congregation I found myself lamenting about what seems to be an inability of the congregation to engage in intentional evangelism. This led to a number of things regarding Church growth and outreach. As I lamented, the Lord drew near and spoke. The Lord said, "Seek first the Kingdom." I countered with, "but Lord that is about finances, and worrying about w...
