The Beauty of Prayer

The beauty of prayer is that it is God’s desire for us to come near to Him. It is that intimate call from our Abba Father to draw near to Him, to spend time with Him, to come to Him as His cherished daughter. The Amplified version of John 6:44 says, “No one is able […]

Feasting on the Word

The Word of God is a precious gift to believers. It is a love letter from the Father to His children; His story of redemption for a people enslaved to sin; it is our hope in dark times; and our compass to keep us on His path. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the […]

Prayer Warrior

Prayer is not a passive activity. It is an offensive strategy designed by God to destroy the works of the devil (see Ephesians 6:10-18).

We have become passive, spiritual hostages, while biblical values are attacked and immorality […]
