A lot of men and women are not grateful for their spouses or thankful for their marriages. Just because there seems to be a problem doesn’t mean you should hate your partner. Remember the vows you took. Things can’t always be rosy. The earlier you deal with that, the better. You took your marriage vows before God and people. Those weren’t mere words. A wise couple would prepare themselves for the not-so-good times by getting on their knees to pray – pray for strength to last through the tough times. Your partner is flesh and blood, just like you so mistakes will be made. It’s your duty to understand, forgive and give them space and time to grow. Married life is such a beautiful thing, when two people come together as one. I love to see couples who’ve been married many years and are still very much in love and still all over each other. That kind of commitment takes hard work. Marriage is a two-way thing; both parties have to give in their all to ensure the relationship lasts and grows from strength to strength. It takes a conscious effort on the part of both husband and wife. It’s not meant for one party to handle alone. Both parties, in agreement, can keep a marriage going. If you’re single and hoping to get married someday, that’s a good dream. Prayers and perseverance will keep you going until then. If you’re married as you read these lines, I just want to remind you of how important it is to make your husband/wife feel loved. Here are a few tips you could use on a daily basis; your partner would be delighted at the pleasant surprises. FOR WOMEN 1.Cook your husband’s favourite meal often not just on special occasions. It’d make him feel loved and you’d receive a loving response in return. 2.When you want to speak to him about something, speak in a sweet voice. He’s more likely to listen than when you nag. Men don’t like nagging. It puts them off. A sweet voice attracts him, tunes him in to what you’re saying. 3.Learn to give him grace. Don’t immediately accuse him if you’re not sure about the situation. It’s like you were waiting all along to catch him red-handed. Don’t make him feel he’s being investigated. You’re his wife and not a boss. 4.Listen to him when he’s got the need to talk about something. Don’t interrupt un-necessarily. Genuinely listen. It pulls you both closer together and strengthens your bond. 5.Don’t gossip or discuss your husband’s weaknesses behind his back to co-workers or friends. It’s dis-respectful. It not only disrespects him, it dis-respects you as well since you two are one. FOR MEN 1.Learn to complement your wife often. If she’s wearing a gorgeous dress or has a new hairstyle, notice it and complement her. Women sometimes wish their husbands would take note of these details. It may mean nothing to you but it does for them. If she’s changed the bed-sheets, trimmed the bushes or done some other chore, complement her. It’d give her a boost. 2.When she has a need to talk, give her time. Listen to her. Drop the paper, drop the remote and if possible, switch off the TV, so she knows there is TV-time and then there is “HER-time” were it’s about her – her goals, dreams, etcetera 3.If she needs help with some chore, be a good husband, help her out. It brings you two closer together, when you do chores together. You’d be surprised, it’d bring you both closer, in whole new ways you never thought possible. 4.Give her grace. Your wife’s human. She’s bound to make mistakes. Understand this and forgive her wrongs just as easily as you want yours forgotten. 5.Never gossip about your wife to co-workers, friends or family. If there’s something wrong, discuss it maturely – just you and your wife.
When God's people pray, they want answers. Yet many Christians don't know how to pray both effectively--in a way that gets results--and humbly--in a way that aligns with God's will. Prayer is a powerful weapon against the true adversaries of God's people: principalities, powers, dark rulers, and spiritual wickedness in high places. These forces are the perpetrators of all kinds of evil: addiction, abuse, poverty, and spiritual bondage run rampant through families, churches, cities, and nations. What can believers do to battle these forces? They can pray. Not just any prayer, but the prayer of petition, known throughout Christian history as the prayer that gets results. Prayer of Petition explores this powerful prayer in detail, from the many examples found in God's Word to more recent instances of incredible miracles ushered in by this prayer. Readers will learn the biblical definitions of petition and supplication and examine the key components of preparation, thanksgiving, and humility. As readers learn to petition the Ruler of All, their confidence that God will prevail--no matter what--will grow. As they learn to rest in His promises, peace will reign over their hearts through the coming revival.

The Lord’s Prayer is the most powerful prayer in all the Bible, taught by Jesus to his own disciples.

From the BookMeet three who discovered the power of “breakthrough prayer.”“My husband and I had a dream of helping desperate young women. But no banker in his right mind would finance such a venture. So we prayed and God broke through every single obstacle we faced. That was just the beginning of the wonderful roller-coaster ride we call ‘faith.’”—Grace (chapter 7)“Voices inside my head were constantly screaming at me. I became like an animal in the street, muttering or yelling out a stream of profanity as people passed by. One day I screamed out, Jesus, help me! O God, you’re my only hope! That was the breakthrough prayer that saved my life.”—Danny (chapter 2)“Talk about breakthrough prayer! I was buried under 110 stories of steel and concrete after the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers when God heard my cry for help.”—Genelle (chapter 3)

When I was a small child, my grandfather made whole family pray. I remember that some of the family members used to get tired of praying everyday. They would run away from the main farm house and hide. However, that would not stop granddad Maxin Mwanyenya Mutambanengwe. It was like some fire had been put on him. He would pick up his walking stick and go round all the outer buildings as though he was hunting for a thief. Why did he do that everyday? He would come back with all the boys who were hiding from him. Only then would the prayers start. He never got tired of this activity. Even if only one of the boys was not there he would stop and go and look for him. Now I know he was actually fighting with the devil. I am sure he used to chase the devil away from all his grandchildren. We had the bible but in those days he is the one who read the bible for us. He loved singing therefore we had a praise and worship session and then read from the word of God. Then he would pray and dismiss everyone. Now that I know, I hope Prayers that Moved Mountains Still Move Mountains will be of assistance to those families that wish to have prayers on a daily basis. Just as reference to how these people prayed and how their prayers were answered. Prayers that Moved Mountains Still Move Mountains is a selection of powerful prayers. Men of God prayed and these prayers were answered in most miraculous ways. God will answer you just as he answered those powerful men and women. He has answered my minor and major prayers. Jesus offered prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears.

Praying the Psalms Changes Things is the fourth book in a very popular series by Lloyd Hildebrand that involves praying the Scriptures. The Bible says, And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us. and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. This spiritual confidence comes from praying God's Word, and the Psalms are particularly powerful sources of prayer for every believer. The Book of Psalms is known as the Bible's prayer book, and so many of the Psalms are prayers that we can personalize for ourselves. Dietrich Bonhoeffer called the Psalms, ...a great school of prayer..., and Praying the Psalms Changes Things is a very helpful textbook in that important school. As you read and pray, God will reveal His will to you and you will be changed. How does praying the Psalms change things? It helps you to know the truth about the situations and circumstances of your life. It will build your faith and give you a glimpse of what God wants for you. As a result, you will grow spiritually, your perspective on things will change, and you will see things changing around you. The Author writes, The Psalms reveal God's heart to us. Filled with promises from Him, the 15 chapters in the Book of Psalms tell us what He wants for us and how to obtain His blessings in our lives. As you read and pray the Psalms, you will see how much Godloves you.
* Including an annotation about the history of the Reformed Churches The Heidelberg Catechism is a Protestant confessional document taking the form of a series of questions and answers, for use in teaching Reformed Christian doctrine. It has been translated into many languages and is regarded as one of the most influential of the Reformed catechisms. The Catechism is divided into fifty-two sections, called "Lord's Days," which were designed to be taught on each of the 52 Sundays of the year. The Synod of Heidelberg approved the catechism in 1563. In the Netherlands, the Catechism was approved by the Synods of Wesel (1568), Emden (1571), Dort (1578), the Hague (1586), as well as the great Synod of Dort of 1618-1619, which adopted it as one of the Three Forms of Unity, together with the Belgic Confession and the Canons of Dort.

Price explains a biblical and experientially based method of prayer. It will provoke assurance and confidence that God hears your prayers and answers them. Most Christians struggle with their commitment to prayer and wrestle with a proper prayer attitude and even posture. Price debunks the teaching on prayer that says, “Sometimes God says yes, sometimes He says no, and sometimes He says wait.” He teaches how God responds to faith and faith alone, and why it is critical for us to understand how to pray in faith and not in doubt, ignorance, or presumption.

Millions have caught Karl Marx's vision of a New Man and a New Society. "Paul presents a greater vision still," writes John Stott. In his letter to the Ephesians the apostle "sees the human predicament as something even deeper than the injustice of the economic structure and so propounds a yet more radical solution. He writes of nothing less than a 'new creation.'" John Stott expounds Paul's theme of uniting all things in Christ by uniting his church and breaking down all that seperates us from God, one ethnic group from another, husband from wife, parent from child, master from slave. A book for all who want to build the church into the new society God has planned it to be.

If you want to have a conversation with God, then you need to do two things: pray and fast. In this primer focusing on these fundamental activities of faith, Rev. Dr. Lionel Stokes shares her transforming life experiences, exploring • what the Bible says about prayer; • why there are so many misconceptions about fasting; and • how fasting and praying interact with each other. True prayer is a conversation with God, but many think of it as a monologue because of the way it occurs in church. It’s often like a one-way telephone conversation, in which one person goes on endlessly without the slightest pause for even an “aha” from the other party—and then the caller hangs up before a response can be made. Whatever our circumstances or situations, there are times when we want or need to communicate with God or to hear from Him. The means by which we do this, therefore, must be simple and clear. If you want to have a real conversation with God and develop a stronger relationship, with Him, then praying and fasting are the answers—but you need to do it right. Take a balanced approach that’s safe and effective, and move closer to the Lord with Prayer and Fasting.
DOZENS OF QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED: Why is prayer necessary? What must we do to be heard by God? How does God answer our prayers? Does God listen to all prayers? Does God hear everyone's prayers? What may we pray about? Does the Father truly grant everything we ask for? What kind of prayers would the Father reject? How long should our prayers be? How often should we pray? Why should we say "Amen" at the end of a prayer? Must we assume a special position or posture when praying? How does God communicate with us? How does God speak to us when we study the Bible? What should our foremost goal be when we study the Bible? What are some things that we can do to draw closer to God? Have we been struggling in our prayer life? Has it become a challenge even to pray? What can we do? What does the Father expect of us in our prayers? What is the Father truly concerned about? How does the Holy Spirit Plead for us? How should we feel about the pain and suffering of this life? What confidence can we have? Can prayer really solve problems? How will our life be different if we make prayer a regular part of your life? What if we pray for relief of a problem and no relief comes? Should we then conclude that we have not received an answer? God may answer a prayer in subtle ways. God may answer a prayer through our study of His Word. Yes, God's answer to our plea for help may very well come through the Spirit inspired, inerrant, authoritative Bible. Instead of removing the problem, God may give us the strength to cope. God may use spiritual brothers and sisters to help us at just the right time. Who knows, we may be the one being used if we are obeying Bible principles to make ourselves available. We must pay closer attention to the way God answers our prayers. Are we not on God's timetable?
According to Pastor Mark Batterson in this expanded edition of The Circle Maker, "Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn't just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It's a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us." Do you ever sense that there's far more to prayer than what you're experiencing? It's time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker--a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his impossible prayer for his people. What impossibly big dream is God calling you to draw a prayer circle around? Sharing inspiring stories from his own experiences as a circle maker, Mark Batterson will help you uncover your heart's deepest desires and God-given dreams and unleash them through the kind of audacious prayer that God delights to answer. This expanded edition of The Circle Maker also includes Batterson's newest insights on how God answers prayer along with stories that add convincing proof to the reality that God is able to do exceedingly far greater than all we could ask or imagine.
“A worship that will have staying power is a worship that is firmly grounded in the old, yet aware of and concerned for new ways to respond to the old, old story.”In the first edition of Worship Old and New, Robert E. Webber introduced an approach to worship that blended historical and traditional practices with contemporary elements. Since then, the spreading fires of worship renewal have provided opportunity for fresh consideration. This significantly revised edition is the result of Webber’s interaction with current worship trends. It is intended to be used both in the classroom and by those who want to improve worship in the local church.Reformatted for an easier, logical approach to worship theology, this revised edition of Worship Old and New is divided into four major sections, addressing the biblical foundation of worship, its theology, its history, and its practice. New information has been incorporated into each section to give the reader a better grasp of the biblical themes of worship, a deeper understanding of Old Testament customs, and a solid grounding in modern-day renewal movements.Especially significant is a reexamination of the actual practice of worship that goes beyond the merely academic to provide a practical perspective through the eyes of the worship leader and worshipers.Well-versed in the best of both past and present, Worship Old and New is a scholarly, up-to-date, and thought-provoking resource for those serious about exploring worship.
The presence of the Lord Jesus. That is the secret of the Christian's strength and joy. And what is to make a difference between Christ's disciples-not those who are just hoping to get to heaven, but Christ's whole-hearted disciples-what is to make a difference between them and other people? It is this, to be in fellowship with Jesus-every hour of the day.. It is by faith that I learn to know the invisible One, the invisible God, and that I see Him. Faith is my spiritual eye-sight for the unseen and heavenly. You often try hard to trust God, and you fail. Why? Because you have not taken time first to see God. How can you trust God fully until you have met Him and known Him? Murray's short book, Jesus Himself, describes the relationship that all followers of Christ long for--to be guided by Christ's Spirit on His path, hearing His voice and seeing with His light. Only 18 pages long, and available for free in the Kindle edition, it is packed with devotion for Jesus, and describes how to get closer to Jesus. Murray is candid in noting that there is nothing short of Jesus that will satisfy our hearts, and nothing short of complete devotion to Him that will transform our lives into ones that glorify Jesus. Not only should we think about, speak about, and believe in Jesus Himself, but we should come to the point where the disciples arrived: "and they knew Him." Everything is to be found in that. These brief messages comprise a revision of two addresses, which originally appeared in the South African Pioneer. Though originally written in 1893, Jesus Himself feels like many of Andrew Murray's other works--as fresh and relevant as if it were written yesterday! This little booklet is small yet complete; an easy read that will both minister to you now, and have you looking for more from this amazing preacher!
Do you feel that there should be something more to life than what you're experiencing? Do you wonder what you can do to make your relationship with God more satisfying? In 'The Hunger of the Heart', Ron DelBene responds to these questions that are in the hearts of so many people today. In his well-known and well-loved style of sharing personal, real-life stories in his writing, the author issues a call to spiritual growth to all persons - regardless of where they are in their spiritual journeys. DelBene describes fourteen stages of spiritual development, using the image of a tree's growth, rather than the typical ladder image for Christian growth. Based on the experiences of thousands of people he has met and counseled, these stage descriptions serve as guidelines for making sense of the yearnings, doubts, anger, and wonder that enter every Christian's life.
