Exalting Christ in our Prayers for the Unsaved

We exalt our Lord Jesus Christ with joyful hearts today, Blessed Father.  You crowned Him Lord over all. He is supreme over all. You have placed all authority in the Hands of the Risen Christ (Matthew 28:18).

We come before You again on this beautiful day that You have made, interceding for our unsaved relatives, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and students of all ages. We intercede for their souls with the authority invested in us according to Your Grace. We are rejoicing that all authority is in the Hands of our Risen Savior and Lord.

O Lord our God, You rule over this family, over all souls, over the Church of Jesus Christ, and over the universe. Your authority is infinite. Your authority is unconquerable. Your authority is incomparable. Your authority is supreme.

Almighty Savior, we stand in Your authority. We are thrilled that You have authority over these prayers that we have been praying for the unsaved. You have authority over every specific person that we are praying for today. We are standing in the gap for all the unsaved millennials in our families, as well as for the unsaved of all ages that You have laid on hearts to pray for. Work powerfully by Your Spirit and open their hearts. Touch and transform their lives, for the praise of Your Glory.

Hear and answer our prayers today. Let the Lord Jesus Christ be magnified in our prayers. Amen.


Praying that the Millennials will believe in Jesus, the Bread of Life.

In the Name of Jesus, Heavenly Father, we pray that you will awaken millennials to the Lord Jesus Christ. Incline the hearts of the millennials to believe that Jesus is the Bread of Life. Open their hearts to believe that He died for the sins of the world and has risen from the dead.

O Lord, millions of our young adults around the world are dying from spiritual hunger. They are starved for the glories of Christ. They are starved for eternal happiness and joy. They are starved for the true Bread of Life. Satisfy their hunger with Jesus, the Bread of Life.

Gracious Father in heaven, by the power of Your Spirit, amaze them with the satisfaction that our Lord Jesus Christ offers and bring the words of our Lord Jesus to their minds:  “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst” (John 6:35).

Save many millennials today, O Lord, even as we pray. Astound them with the Living Bread who came down from heaven. Amaze them in ways that only You can. Awaken them to the soul-satisfying pleasures of the Bread of Life. Draw them to Jesus so that they can begin to enjoy dimensions of holy pleasures and heavenly blessings that they never dreamed possible.

Father, glorify Your Holy Name. In Jesus Name. Amen.

The view from my writing perch

I am at a friend’s cabin today on the Fox Lake in Wisconsin.  He offered it to me for a few days as I am on vacation attempting something that I have never tried before.  I am starting to write a book…on prayer.

It was over a year ago that I felt the Lord leading me in this endeavor, and I hope I heard right.  Unless it’s straight from the Bible, I’m usually not one to say, “God said to me…” but sometimes the sense is stronger than others.  This communication seemed pretty strong.

So I spent a year – maybe too long – musing and trying to decide how to do this.  Tim Challies, a popular blogger and Christian book reviewer said that he gets more new books sent to him on prayer than any other topic, so maybe this is crazy. But, then again, I think I may have a…

AHA – Awakening Honesty Action

This book is a must-read for every prodigal or relative of a prodigal.

AHA: The God Moment That Changes EverythingAHA: The God Moment That Changes Everything by Kyle Idleman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“We’ve all had “aha!” moments in our lives, times when a sudden revelation surprises us with insight. According to pastor and bestselling author Kyle Idleman, we can experience this same kind of “aha!” in our spiritual lives. With everyday examples and trademark testimonies, Idleman draws on Scripture to reveal how three key elements can draw us closer to God and change our lives for good.

Awakening to the reality of our true spiritual condition, we see ourselves and our need for a Savior with renewed honesty. This realization leads to action, obeying God’s commands and following the example set by Christ. As we see in the transformation of the prodigal son, the result is a life-changing, destiny-altering collision—an AHA moment that leads us home to our loving Father.”

Where are the Commands for Personal Evangelism?

Are we ambassadors for Christ?

Entrusted with the Gospel

Some people are under the impression that the Bible does not tell us to do personal evangelism. Have you ever considered it? It’s interesting – try to think of a biblical command that says something like this: “Be sure to tell your family and your co-workers and your neighbors about Christ,” and you’ll get the idea. You don’t see as much urging in this area as you might otherwise think.

Of course, there’s Peter’s command to be ready to give an answer for the hope that is in you (1 Peter 3:15). And more importantly, there is the Great Commission in Matthew 28. Actually, I think those few verses that close out the end of the first book in the New Testament are enough. Go make disciples and teach others to do the same. From these verses (not to mention the counterparts in the other gospels and Acts), we have enough direction to start talking until Jesus…
