Prayer at Exam Time

STRESS! Most teenagers know this familiar feeling that comes with subject tests, pop-quizzes, mid-terms, finals or other tests such as the SAT and ACT. The stress is even greater when you finally admit… that YOU did NOT study! A prayer in itself generally won’t get you that A that you are drooling for, the B you might grin at, the C that makes you shrug, or the D that you are sweating to get so you don’t get grounded and the car keys taken away. And for those of you who might c

Creating a Vocabulary of Praise

A Focus on God’s Attributes I’ve always been able to hold up my end of a conversation without difficulty. Except, that is, when it came to prayer, and particularly when I tried to express my praise to God. Attempting to begin and end my prayer times with praise and adoration, I often found myself flat-out speechless. I wanted to praise God with all that was within me, but I couldn’t think of one sensible thing to say. I recently read a book called Invading the Privacy of God by Cecil “Cec”

Levels of Praise

Level One: Creation’s Praise Created things like trees, rocks and nature praise by keeping their order. This is the most basic level of praise. It is done unwittingly or without understanding.

They have knowledge and understanding of Who He is and how worthy He is – but they do not experience the miracle of salvation.  Level Three: “How Great Thou Art”

Five Conditions of Answered Prayer

John 15:7 & Selected (adapted from a sermon by Rick Warren & from “Invited into His Presence” by Gene Barron) You’ve probably had people say to you, “I tried prayer and it didn’t work. I had a need and prayed about it. After I’d prayed for a while, nothing happened and I didn’t see any results. I’m disappointed and I don’t believe in prayer.” The fact is, there are thousands of prayers that go up every day but there are very few

Simple Ways to Think About Prayer

PRAY ABOUT SOMETHING, NOT FOR SOMETHING! Don’t tell God how big your problems are…Tell your problems how BIG GOD is! ACTS-adoration, confession, thanksgiving, supplication BEGIN WITH SILENCE-prayer begins with silence to allow the Holy Spirit to shape and form our words. BODY PRAYER-touch your head and remember the ways you are close to God; forehead-for wisdom; mouth-to speak kindly and Christ-like; heart-be open-hearted and love generously; belly-feel deeply, belly laugh, belly cry and d

  • "I had been struggling at work lately, because I seemed to make mistakes all the time. So after attending a prayer seminar I prayed and asked God to help me at work. Later that day I went to work. I did better. The whole day the main manager didn’t come. In the evening he came back and started observing me. He came to me and told me “This is going to be your test order to see how you are doing. I unfortunately made a mistake again. Then God worked on my manager’s mind because he kept observing me and found I did good. The whole day I did well and did not get nervous. At the end of the day something amazing thing happend. A customer called my second manager and said in front of me: “This girl is very good. I am very pleased for her customer service, you should know it and I want you to inform it to your main Manager.” Then he thanked me. I was so glad for that. A few hours later another customer came and called the manager and took him elsewhere to talk. When he came back I asked him: “Did I make a mistake?” He told me: “No, it was a second compliment about you.” My tears came out. It’s really amazing what my living God did for me."—from Canada
