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). However, too often Christians perceive prayer as merely a reverent petition and they limit the power of prayer. We have become passive, spiritual hostages, while biblical values are attacked and immorality […]

A Spotless Child

I had just finished feeding my brand new baby girl. As she slept peacefully in my arms, I looked at her sweet little face and saw not a spot, not a blemish, not a scar – nothing but beauty. Her skin was like fine, white china, and her dark eyebrows arched perfectly over her sleeping […]
