Dying to Self in the Age of Self-love

By Wendy Alsup

I am going to be raw and honest in this post. And I hope I’ll be a little bit encouraging too. I am emerging from a brutally hard season in life. But even as I emerge with my feet on more solid ground than I’ve felt in a long time, I still face a life that was not the one I envisioned as an earnest Christian teenager in youth group and then Bible college.

What is Grace ~ Audio

god-1772560_1280

God has many qualities and gifts, but of all His qualities none express His character or does He have a better gift than His grace.

All grace originates with God. Grace can be classified into two main categories. These categories are often classified as common grace and special or what we might refer to as transforming, saving grace. Common grace is that which everyone experiences whether they believe in it or not.

What Do You Think About God?

By Tricia Goyer

What do you think?

I remember the first time I really thought about God. I was in the second grade, and my mother and grandmother had just become Christians. I started attending Sunday school and vacation Bible school. The stories the teachers shared were about how God loved us and answered our prayers. I believed what they told me, and even though I was young I saw the change in my family. I thought this God person was pretty cool.

I’ll Take It From Here

“Saul was told that David had gone to Keilah, and he said, ‘God has delivered him into my hands, for David has imprisoned himself by entering a town with gates and bars.’” 1 Samuel 23:7 (NIV)

Stuck somewhere between numb and exhaustion, I stared out the window. Lord, how did I end up here? Please forgive me.

I had grown up hearing, “Pray for God to open a door.”

Can We Even Do One

We love to talk about obedience as though we are capable of living the law. As though we can impress God with our faux obedience.

However, how are we really doing? The first commandment is that we should not have any other God’s, how are we doing with even the first commandment. Today we look at some hard questions as we look at the answer to that question.

Stop Second Guessing God’s Affection

heart-583895_1280

By Joseph Franks

Do you know how much you are loved? Well, this might blow your mind, but you have been eternally on God’s mind and heart. Yes, you have been the apple of his eye and the subject of his conversation for millenia. You were made in his image. You were made to commune with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Therefore, while you have been created to make much of God, God has created you to make much of you. While you should spend yourself enjoying God, he spends himself enjoying you. And while you exist to glorify him forever, God exists to glorify you.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all of those who have been brought near to God are on is not one that is about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but rather 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 and that is 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 and re-connecting them, one soul at a time to local bodies of believers.

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