Surrender Your Life to God

“Lord, teach us to pray.” Luke 11:1 Most Christians are very aware of their inability to pray according to the will of God. Christ sacrificed Himself for us. He gave Himself freely, but He will enrich your life only as far as you allow Him to. The depth and quality of your devotion to Him will be reflected in the strength of your prayer life. It does not mean a thing to ask God for a meaningful and positive prayer life unless you do your share to develop it. If you surrender yourself more completely to Christ, you will become...

An Effective Prayer Life

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.” Philippians 4:6 Of all the Christian disciplines, prayer is the most commonly practiced and the least understood. Prayer should not be regarded as a life jacket in desperate times or as wish list. We begin by establishing a relationship of prayer with God.

The Power of God’s Love

Confront Your Weakness

“David found strength in the Lord his God.” 1 Samuel 30:6 There are few people who can honestly say that they are equipped to meet and handle any situation with ease and confidence. Regardless of what problems you face or how inadequate you might feel in any given situation – be in the business world, on the home front, on the sports field, or even on a social level – you must surrender it in your prayer to God. Ask Him to give you accept this and believe that He can and will do it, you can move forward with...

Blessed Assurance

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3 Planning is important in every area of life. You plan for the future, for your marriage, for your finance and for retirement. Much of our time and energy goes into planning. There is a way to make planning better, however, but it requires strict spiritual discipline to make it effective and it must be undertaken with sincerity and honestly. It also requires solid faith and trust in God and in His promises. Whatever your concern may be, lay it before God in prayer with all your...
