Praying That Prevails – Luke 18:1-8

Why did R.A. Torrey say, “Time spent in prayer is not wasted, but time invested at big interest”? Why did Jesus say, “Men ought always to pray and not to faint”?

Praying With Perseverance – Ephesians 6:10-18

What did Paul mean when he said, “Praying always”? What does it mean to pray, “In the Spirit”? What does it mean to “Watch in prayer”?

That’s why praying alone is fine, but praying together adds force to our praying. In prayer “together” we have authority, power and confidence. Lord, teach…

A Spiritual Breakthrough – II Samuel 5:17-25

Mark 4:27 is one of the most encouraging truths in Scripture. When Jesus says that the seed of the Word will “spring up and grow” and that you and I “knoweth not how” – it is flat out liberating. We don’t have to have all the answers or know how God will answer prayer. We…
