Have Some Faith

11daddy.png

By Tosin Olabode

The “F” in Faith stands for “the Future”. Faith is not the actions of the Past or the words of the Present, Faith is the substance of the Future.

Faith is your ability unlike Thomas to believe while you have not seen. Faith is Noah preparing an ark for something God called rain. Faith is blind Bartimaeus dropping his support and not allowing anyone to lead him as though he already had his sight while trying to meet Jesus for his sight. Faith is that Centurion telling Jesus he is as effective from where He is on the street as He would be in his unworthy home for Jesus to heal his servant boy.

Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ

6208856677_e03c9f2e88_z

By James Campbell
 Galatians 6:2  (NASB)  Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.
 This verse is probably familiar to most of us. Let’s face it; it reads great on a Christian t-shirt.
 
The problem is that it is much easier to get onto a t-short than into our hearts. Part of that is because in order for another person to help bear our burdens or for us to bear theirs, we have to be willing to admit the burdens that we carry to one another. I cannot help bear a burden that I do not know you have, any more than you can bear one that I don’t tell you about.

 

Can grace be defined?

1theword

We at World Prayr, have realized that grace can be a difficult concept to grasp. At times it can be confusing to many. It is for this reason that, in a simple way, we have written “Walking in God’s Grace….Practical Answers to Tough Questions” in a question and answer format, so it is easily understood and very easy to follow.

Enjoy this excerpt from Walking in Grace;

“All of us are just moments away from the train named Eternity running us over as we lie tied to the railroad tracks of condemnation by ropes of our making. (We are condemned to spend eternity away from God because we fall short of God’s character of perfection.) These ropes are made by the choices that we make that are contrary to the choices God wants us to make. We willingly make these choices revealing that we are not capable of living how we were designed to live. These choices are what is known as sin or man’s continued failure to meet the standards of God, which is perfection.

Do your mornings need Reforming?

By Erik Retallick

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” ~ Lamentations 3:22-23

I don’t know what you are like when you wake up, first thing in the morning? Except for a short spell at school when I used to do a newspaper delivery job and got up at 5.45am, mornings have never been the time of day when I am at my peak performance (to say the least!).

Can or Called?

Live-a-life-worthy-of-the-calling-you-have-received

By Lisa Buffaloe

I’m a “can do” kind of woman. I have knowledge, some strength and power, the means and capacity to do and accomplish many things. I can keep incredibly busy with family, friends, blogging, writing, and social interactions. However having a “can do” attitude isn’t necessarily a calling. 

The Greek definition of “called” is a calling, an invitation, an invitation to a feast, a divine invitation to embrace the salvation of God.

Humiliation Is a Choice!

438161038_45f56fa5ea_z

By Pastor Patrick Badstibner

There the man stood, quite confident in himself. WHY, shouldn’t he be?  He had won all sorts of awards, recognition, notoriety across the United States.

His peers not only came to him for advice, but they took camera shots of His work and used  them for their advertising. He discovered this one day while browsing through a national magazine, depicting lifestyles, fashions, homes and designs of the wealthy when all of a sudden he saw an all too familiar image. So, why should he not be confident in himself, his abilities, his accomplishments, his reputation.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
