Producers and Consumers

By Wendy Alsup

For the last few months, I have been thinking about my life in terms of being a producer and a consumer. Let me explain.

Politically, Donald Trump made this idea (without using this exact language) front and center in minds and hearts. He emphasizes American businesses that produce, that manufacture new products, as he seeks to undo systems that aid those some see as consumers, those who only use resources while being unable, often physically, from producing.

Are you afraid of something?

by Ruth Kiran

For God has not given us a spirit of fear,

but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

2 Timothy 1:7

When God created adam he was a perfect human being, but the moment sin entered his life he experienced fear. Every human being has some kind of fear in his life; fear of rejection, fear of insects, fear of animals fear of height, water, demons ghosts, war, terrorism fear of death fear of failure examinations, public speaking, fear of unknown fear of being judged by others what other might think about us even some people are afraid of success.

Don’t Be Afraid of Taking It Slow

By Christie Lambert

When I was in fifth-grade, my class spent a day planting pine tree seedlings to fill areas of a local forest left bare by a lumber company cutting down trees. It was our Earth Day project and I was so excited to get out into the woods. I was even more excited when we were all given a few baby trees to take at the end of the afternoon so that we could plant them wherever we chose.

My parents helped me plant my bundle of pine trees on the border of our property. It wasn’t too long afterwards that we moved away from that house and that town…

Grace for the Moment with Pastor Pat

Have you ever been away from home for much too long and just longed to go home. Yet, because of current situations you just could not at the time.

As believers, we are not home yet. However, God will bring us home when He is ready, but in the meantime, what do we do while here. Today we explore these thoughts!

Because He First Served Us

By Kimm Crandall

“But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.” –Romans 7:6

”By faith we receive blessings from above, from God; through love we give them out below, to our neighbor.” -Martin Luther

Grace has done its work. You have heard the gospel in a whole new light. You have come to understand the outrageous power of a grace that comforts, a grace that transforms, and a grace that loves you just as you are. You have been told to rest and told that there is nothing left for you to do because “it is finished.”

Dance Floor Worship

By Henry Neufeld

A few days ago I attended a wedding reception. It was a very joyous occasion, celebrated by eating and drinking and yes, being merry! It should surprise nobody that much of the joy was expressed on the dance floor.

Now it would be quite enough for me to say that the joy was expressed on that dance floor. But I also saw some marvelous things happen out there.

  • I saw several couples lose their looks of solemnity and trouble, and look at one another with pure joy and acceptance.
  • I saw a lady who wondered if she would ever again enjoy dancing learn that she could.
  • I spent a some minutes with my own daughter building our relationship – a relationship for which I praise God daily.
  • Last, but not least, God was present.

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.
