Blessed Savior: A Prayer by Thomas Reade

PrayerI love the Puritans for their emphasis on God's greatness and grace. Listen to this prayer of Thomas Reade.

 

"A Call to Anguish" from David Wilkerson

David WilkersonAs a young Christian, forty years ago, I read David Wilkerson’s The Cross and the Switchblade and Run, Baby, Run, written by Nicky Cruz, a New York City gang warlord who David had led to the Lord. Both books had a profound influence on me. After Wilkerson died in a car crash April 27, I listened to a seven-minute excerpt from his message "A Call to Anguish."

Can we or should we talk to loved ones in Heaven?

I’d like to address a recent question that came up in a blog comment last week. I figure other readers might have read the question and may be interested, since I've been asked it many times over the years.

The question was, from a biblical standpoint, is it okay to talk to our loved ones who've gone on to be with Jesus?

Everyone We See Has a Story

Click-fila-ACheck out this video produced by a company I really respect, Chick-fil-A. I think it’s very moving. It reminds me of the divine appointments God gives us daily. It also encourages me to pray, even if briefly, for many people I see in passing and do not know.

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

Longing for God and Joy, from Augustine

Aurelius AugustineAurelius Augustine, 354-430 AD, was a church father and theologian who made a remarkable impact, to the point that nearly all of us today are in his debt for some of the distinctives of our theology. 

“Openness” and “In Prayer” from Valley of Vision

ValleyNanci and I often read The Valley of Vision, or listen to it (Max Maclean does an excellent audio version).  These are brief and profound Puritan prayers. We find them powerful and penetrating, prompting us to pray in ways that this culture, and even most of our church cultures, don’t prompt us toward. Here are two out of the many I’ve appreciated.

The Persecuted Church: Ignored by the World, Watched by the Eyes of Heaven
