It’s in the past, God’s forgiven it

pray-664786_640

It’s in the past, God’s forgiven it, so (it, and so or it and so) I can move on without talking or dealing with anyone else, right?

The answer to that question depends. If what we have done wrong is a personal issue, then it is between God and us. Once we have confessed and accepted God’s forgiveness then it is in-deed in the past…

Burying Old Hostilities

forgive-208824_640By Chad Bird

We make lists for grocery shopping and running errands, but there’s one thing we never need a list to remember: people who have done us wrong.

Ex-wives and ex-husbands. “Friends” who stabbed us in the back. Mothers who abused us and fathers who abandoned us. The people who slammed doors in our faces, made us feel ugly and ashamed, ripped from our lives the happiness we had waited so long to attain…

I too can do big things

feet-619399_640By Shasta Monet

Yesterday my daughter was upset because I didn’t give her a bag of groceries to carry into the house for me. I normally will try to give her something, unknown to her simply to keep her from running off from me. But yesterday I thought the bags were too heavy for her, so I didn’t offer her one. Well, as I started to head to the house, she stood there by the car and cried. I realized she was determined to help me. So I gave her what I thought was the lightest one, but it was still heavy for her, in my opinion…

The World Beyond the Horizon

sunrise-1237616_640

Hope of a land beyond the horizon in which we will live for all eternity enables us to trust in the sovereignty of God amidst the breaking of calamity. It can truly be said that God has indeed made man the only being that has been gifted with the knowledge of God and in such knowledge is found eternity. The thirst for glory lies within us, the knowledge and desire to reach and touch the untouchable, to know what could not possibly be known, without such hope…

A Prayer for a Whirling Head

joesby Joseph Franks

Father, my head is whirling. I find it hard to concentrate. I find it hard to rest in you. I want to come to you and find peace. Desperately, I desire to be content in you. Can you help me be as the Psalmist of Israel? Can you help me experience satisfaction as did David – the man after your own heart? He declared, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Can this become my declaration and not merely my desire and supplication?

The Law Is Not Soggy CornFlakes

giphyBy Patrick Badstibner

The law drives us to the Gospel. The Gospel saves us from the curse of the law but in turn directs us back to the law to search its spirit, its goodness and its beauty. The law of God is still a lamp unto our feet. Without it we stumble and trip and grope in darkness.” – R.C. Sproul

Intro

Grace is one of God’s many characteristics and quite possibly the one that best defines Him. Found both in the law and gospel is God’s love and grace.

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.
