WP Board Message Over the holidays some unexpected changes occurred in the ministry. These events have required the Board of World Prayr to take some time to meet in order to determine what changes need to be made accordingly, then once changes are made the best way to proceed forward. Until then certain aspects of the ministry have been placed on hold. This would include the blog, the podcast and certain aspects of this website.

He leaves no doubt that living in unity with our brothers and sisters in Christ only

Clarifying then, that while

Today, may we let our hope not be in how we are doing, but in How Christ did. Let us not hope in our capabilities, but in knowing that He was capable

We must remember that it is the gospel that kills the lies we tell ourselves that keep us from running to the arms of the one who loves us, like none other.

Such union in Christ places us in the position of now being as though

A sure sign that one has only heard part of the gospel or good news is a deep seated lack of interest or a desire to live towards the acknowledgement that

Only through having our lives violently interrupted through our suffering in the storm were we really able to encounter God, have our affections grabbed, our focus righted and actually know what it is to begin to live.

He has taken us now from being law breakers, defining ourselves by some supposed ability to call ourselves law keepers, judging ourselves by our performance and others by their lack of it to defining ourselves as being law keepers, because we have

It is a gift for all children that their parents favor, pleasure and love is based on the mere fact that they are the children of their parents. Christ said, in Matthew 7, if your earthly Father knows how to give such good gifts, how much more will
