 Righteous choices

By Joshua Samuel

Your choices are never free from this conflict… Gal 5:17!!!

Many people believe that the end justifies the means. They say it is acceptable to compromise God’s standards to get ahead. But the fact is we always lose when we violate God’s standards of righteousness.

Yes! You might say, it is not always easy to do what is right.

Beauty and The Beast

By Pastor Pat Badstibner 

First you should know I am breaking one of the rules of the ministry of no self-promotion, but I did ask permission. I hope you do not mind as I take today to celebrate my blessing of being married today for thirty years, to a real angel! 

Life Shattering! 

The year was 1979. Up to that point I had always been a straight A arrow, it seemed thanks to the mentoring of my spiritual father I had moved past the abusive childhood I had grown up with.

Thou Shalt Not Judge!

thou-shalt

by Kyle Beshears

One of the most popular, perhaps most scathing, objections towards Christians today is that we’re too “judgy.” We hypocritically judge those outside of the church by flying in the face of Jesus’ teaching that “Thou shalt not judge.” (Yes, always quoted in the KJV language, for some reason…)

In fact, this one verse, Matthew 7:1, is perhaps the most widely known among non-Christians. It is also, I believe, one of the most misunderstood among non-Christians and least practiced among Christians.

Two Difficult Challenges for Pastors

By Allan Bevere

I have been in pastoral ministry for thirty years. I love what I do. I am one of those persons who awakens in the morning ready to go after the day with all of its responsibilities and possibilities. I do not count the years to retirement nor have I ever regretted the vocation to which I have been called.

Having said that, I also need to say that pastoral ministry can be difficult.

Three Words That Make All The Difference! 

output_hgP4in

By Pastor Pat Badstibner

I believe that there are three words that when we come to understand them have a significant impact on whether we fear rejection, dis-corn, disapproval, non-acceptance, failure and how we relate to others and most importantly God. I think it is in understanding these three words that created the difference in the disciples taking them from deserters to world changers.

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.
