Are You Brave Enough to Ask God for This?

Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash Due to hurricane Irma approaching soon, I am running the post I would have run on Monday, September 11th today instead. Join me in praying for those being impacted by Harvey, Irma, Katia, Jose, and the 8.1 earthquake in Mexico last night.  There are so many other significant crises… Continue reading Are You Brave Enough to Ask God for This?

Ten Reasons to Consider Fasting

Fasting is not a topic we discuss much in some church circles – especially not the ones where I have grown up. We’d rather have a big fellowship supper! But fasting is something I believe we may each want to very prayerfully consider. It is a spiritual discipline that benefits believers and the church, particularly… Continue reading Ten Reasons to Consider Fasting

Pray with Me for Our Nation and Our World!

Lord, Our hearts are so very heavy with the constant blows of violence that we continue to see in our country and around the world. None of us want to live in a world like this where people are killed so senselessly. Our hearts are broken! None of us want this kind of world for… Continue reading Pray with Me for Our Nation and Our World!

Can You Pray Too Much for Your Marriage?

I think a common temptation when we are struggling in our marriages is for us to focus so much on praying for our husbands and our marriages – those things are almost all we pray about. However, I don’t think this is going to be a healthy, productive approach long term. Scripture does admonish us to… Continue reading Can You Pray Too Much for Your Marriage?

Let’s Pray Together for Our Nation and the World

I know this is “off-topic” to becoming godly wives in some ways – although the way we respond when a crisis looms does reveal our level of faith in God and it helps us to see if we have been trusting in other things. What better thing to do than to gather to pray together,… Continue reading Let’s Pray Together for Our Nation and the World

“There Must Be More to This Journey Than Just Prayer”

Yes! There absolutely is!!! I spent up to four hours a day praying during those first 14 years of our marriage. God wasn’t answering my prayers. Why, in my case, was He not listening to me? If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. Psalm 66:18 I have to… Continue reading “There Must Be More to This Journey Than Just Prayer”

A Call to Prayer – for the Body of Christ and for the Lost

Persecution of Christians has been intensifying in recent months and weeks, as I am sure we are all well aware. The past century has seen more martyrs for Christ than any century in the history of the church. My precious brothers and sisters in Christ, let’s join hands – virtually, at least – through the… Continue reading A Call to Prayer – for the Body of Christ and for the Lost

A Call to Prayer – For Our Husbands

    Ladies, I spent the first 14+ years of our marriage praying for Greg (sometimes for 4 hours/day) in ways that were actually full of sinful motives – unbeknownst to me. 🙁 I thought I was so spiritual, but wow, was my heart ever deceiving me – big time. Yikes. Unsurprisingly, I didn’t see… Continue reading A Call to Prayer – For Our Husbands

A Call to Prayer – for Ourselves

  Most of us, even those of us who claim Christ, are living in spiritual poverty, and we don’t even realize it. We have the truth in our hands, but we are not living out God’s Word and seeking Him passionately above all else. We are operating in our own strength, not the power of… Continue reading A Call to Prayer – for Ourselves
