God Loves the Underdog

By Mark Luker

God loves an underdog. Everyone loves the story of an underdog. You know, someone with the odds stacked against him or her but somehow they rise up to win – the classic Hollywood script. But if you think about it, we are all underdogs. If you are a Christian, you are already, by default, an underdog. If you choose to live a “good Christian life” you will be an underdog to the world. The only difference is that being a Christian means we are promised all the things we need to win the fight.

 A friend of God

By Latasha Ransome

Recently, I heard a song on the radio that mentioned the beauty of having an incomparable friendship with God. The singer sang wonderful words of worship that captured the essence of the Lord’s immutable nature. My heart rejoiced as I began to ponder on the goodness of the Lord and I thanked Him for His unfailing friendship.

What do you want?

question

By 

Life is short.  The bible says repeatedly that it’s like a vapor, a mist that is quickly gone.  We are here for just a few years and then…..we are gone.

So,  what do you want?  What do you want to do? What do you want to be remembered for? What do you want to accomplish? These are questions I’m visiting again as I near the last third. What do I want?

God is Good

By Jody Neufeld

Do you believe in evil? Do you believe in Satan? Scriptures does mention Satan in the book of Job and, my personal favorite, in Revelation I am told Satan will meet his end in the lake of fire (Revelation 20). If you put “evil” into a word search on your Bible software, it will bring up many, many verses throughout the Bible. But however many references there are to Satan and his evil in Scriptures, there are a “ba-zillion” more about God and His goodness and power over evil and Satan. And that is where we should put our focus.

When You Are The Offender

This video reminds us of what we should do when we have offended someone.

Using Matthew 5:23-24 as the Scripture reference,

we are commanded to do four things

when we realize we have done harm to another.

Stop, Go, reconcile and then return.

Through it all, we should have a servant’s heart.

When Life is Kicking You, Keep Serving.

By Pastor Pat Badstibner

When you read that…it seems almost impossible, doesn’t it? When we are suffering, depending on the level of suffering, it will seem hard enough to just put one foot in front of the other. Serve others? Are you kidding. That is why our Sub-Title is:

What possible motivation can we find to serve others when life is hitting us in the stomach with a baseball bat?

Truthfully, how does one find the motivation to not be completely focused inward during those times when life just keeps piling it on? When the days feel like a sweltering 150 degrees because of the trials….

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.
