Focus on Prayer...

Praying for Your Husband's Day
by Rachel Paxton
One of the biggest blessings you can give your husband is to pray for his day.

You might ask, "What's the point, what difference does it make?"  It actually makes a lot of difference. Christians daily face a spiritual battle, and the choice is yours whether or not to protect yourself and your husband in prayer.  <more...>

Prayer Jar For Kids
By Nadine Hocken
A prayer jar is a fun activity for kids of all ages. Also, at the same time it's a great tool for developing a child's desire to pray. It gives parents and children a great opportunity to pray together, and you know what they say: "A family that prays together stays together!" <more...>

Be Careful What You Pray For
by Dionna Sanchez
You’ve probably heard that expression – “Be careful what you wish for.” Well, I think there is wisdom in that statement when it comes to our heartfelt prayers. <more...>

Start Your Day Off Right
by Dionna Sanchez
Some days it seems like the moment our feet hit the floor and we get out of bed, things go wrong. The day doesn’t get off on the right foot and everything dominoes from that point on into chaos, stress, anger, and many other emotions. <more...>

The Driving Force of Prayer
by Ted Schroder
Corrie ten Boom once asked, “Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?” In other words, is prayer automatically a central part of your life, that enables you to get through each day, or only called upon when you are in trouble, when you have an occasional accident, or an emergency? We clutch the steering wheel as though life depends on it – and it does! If we neglect the steering wheel when we drive, we will end up in the ditch or worse. We rarely give the spare tire a thought. It is there only when we need it, if ever. Are you a steering wheel pray-er or a spare tire pray-er?  <more...>

Building a Heritage of Prayer
by Dionna Sanchez
Spiritual legacies are so important. That thought really drilled into my heart when my grandpa passed away in 2009. I realized how blessed I was to have a Godly man as a grandparent and someone whom left me a great legacy and heritage.  <more...>

Pray For Your Children
by Dionna Sanchez
I want to arm my children with self-esteem, strong roots and values along with wisdom and integrity. I want to protect them from harm and be there when they hurt. 

At times, as a parent, I can feel so useless and so overwhelmed because so much is being thrown in my kids' direction! But I have realized that I don't have to experience those feelings. I can feel an inner peace, calm and strength by drawing on one source of power: prayer! <more...>

Prayer for Schools
by Bill Swint
Lord this morning we pray for our schools. That all who are responsible will recognize the need for a safe, nurturing, learning, atmosphere in all our schools. That the result would be to eliminate ignorance and in its place grow a culture of excellence for all who enter. So Lord continue to raise our expectations for our schools. That the gifts of prosperity enjoyed by this great nation will truly be available to all.  <more...>

How to Be Heard in Heaven 
by Eddie Smith
Wouldn't it be the best gift ever, if I could present you with a formula that would guarantee that from now on all your prayers would be answered? Nice, perhaps. But I can't. There is no magical prayer or magical form of prayer that God always answers affirmatively. "What about the prayer of Jabez?" some might ask. Well, think about it. If Jabez's prayer were a prayer with  <more...>

Tips For A More Effective Prayer Life
by Inez Haythorn
The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. James 5:16
So many people underestimate the importance and power of prayer. Some tend to view it as a short recitation at meals. Others see it as a last resort. "There's nothing we can do now but pray," we often hear stated.  <more...>

A Heart for Prayer
by Carl Caton
If you walked with me for a day, you would say that I have a decent prayer life. After all, I have many of the "disciplines" of prayer deeply engrained in my daily routine. I keep a prayer journal, I pray throughout the day, I say a blessing before meals, I pray for my kids, I even read prayers from a devotional. The glaring defect in my prayer life, though, is a heart issue. I'm checking all the boxes with a sense of duty instead of with a heartfelt passion for God. After all, who is God? <more...>

Reflections on the Peace Prayer of St. Francis
by Lisa M. Hendey
Certain inspirational sayings and prayers transcend denominational lines, becoming part of the fabric of faith and inspiration for masses of believers seeking solace or comfort in difficult times. In Reflections on the Peace Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi  <more...>

Letting our Children see us Pray 
by Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur
I try to get up early on school days to say my morning prayers and read my Bible before the kids get up. There is a practical reason for that - there simply isn't time to fit in my prayers in the 45 minutes between the time I get the kids up and the time that we leave the house. There is also a spiritual reason - it is much easier to be focused on God without my kids interrupting every few minutes. <more...>

Prayer for Schools and Teachers
by Bill Swint
Lord, today we remember our schools and teachers.  At a time when school seems to include so much more than it used to, we find we need you most. With so many issues before us, we turn to you Lord, and seek your wisdom. <more...>

Praying For Your Husband
by Dionna Sanchez
If you believe you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. Matthew 21:22 

I don't want to take my husband for granted. I want to embrace and enjoy my time with him. I want to see delight in his face as I strive to please him within our home, within my personal walk with Christ, and as a mother to our children. I know he values me more, when I show him I value us, our home and our life.  <more...>

Encouraging Prayer Resources for Women
by Lisa M. Hendey
As we put the election behind us and enter into the holiday season, many have the desire to approach life with a more spiritual, less materialistic perspective. The difficulty is in establishing, and remaining devoted to, prayer and meditations rituals which will provide clarity, wisdom and motivation. Most women are so busy serving those around them in a multitude of little ways <more...>

Too Stuck to Pray
by Margaret Paul, Ph.D.
Prayer is a powerful way to open the heart when you are stuck in anger, fear, self-judgment, resistance or depression. When you can sincerely pray for spiritual help in opening your heart and taking responsibility for your own feelings and needs, help is there. <more...>

Are They All Healed When You Pray?
by A K Whitehead
Everyone in the healing ministry experiences failure when praying with others for healing. "Failure" in this connection is simply not seeing the healing happen that you prayed for. "Failure" in prayer is never absolute because God always recognises our genuine efforts.  <more...>

God Teaches Through Dreams 
By Alyice Edrich 
For three or four days straight, I had the same reoccurring dream. I was walking with my husband and an evil spirit, an electricity, I had never felt before was trying to get under my skin and into my body. I felt as though I was being spiritually attacked. At first it was just an occasional attack, and I would call upon the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, to protect me. <more...>

Scheduling Quiet Time
by Rachel Paxton
Scheduling quiet time isn't easy for busy moms. I find that a lot of the time I don't even have the time to sit down and schedule my quiet time. Sound familiar? <more...>

On Listening To God
by Lee Wise
Most of us spend our entire lives listening.  Coffee being poured into a cup, our favorite tunes, and people telling us what they think -- sometimes about us. <more...>
