Person to Person – Unique Gifts

person-to-person

By Jessica Dixon

We were all born with gifts from God that makes each one of us different and unique.

I have always loved to write.  

As a child I would create books and scripts with my friends and I never passed up language arts in school.  As I got older I would see people write blogs and knew I wanted to be able to do that one day.

Well guess what! I had someone approach me and ask me to start writing blogs as part of the team of World Prayr. I was so excited, finally a way to use my gift!!

Jesus Christ our teacher, is a great hero

His Great Love Towards Us

By Tabinda Saher Ayub

“And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him” (Luke 2:40).

Youngsters have a lot of abilities, they are filled with excitement, intelligence, braveness, fearlessness, bright ideas, etc. They can do most everything that they want to do. When a youngster’s abilities develop, they are then able to change their society and nation if they desire. They can tackle problems, they can face the challenges, because they are very strong and they feel they can do anything. A youngster can be a great example to others.

Jesus taught us that we are like a wise man who built his house on a solid rock, if we hear His words and act upon them. (Matthew 7:24)

5 Reasons Why Prosperity Theology is Bankrupt

bankrupt-monopoly

by Kyle Beshears

 

1. The Bible Never Promises a “Financial Blessing” After Tithing in the Way Prosperity Theology Teaches

When we think of financial blessing in terms of prosperity theology, a divine pyramid scheme comes to mind. If we place $1,000 in the “storehouse” of so-and-so’s ministry, God will bless us in abundance for our faith.

In fact, many so-called preachers tout verse after verse in order to bolster their message that God wants you to test Him in this. One popular passage is Malachi 3:10…ish. (By …ish, I mean they conveniently leave some parts out.)

The Soft Sounds of the Morning

the-sounds-of-fog_l

by Allan Bevere

There is too much noise in our world.

You walk into a restaurant for lunch and the music is blaring. The car next to you at the traffic light has the radio turned up so loud you can hear the music even though his and your car windows are closed. The first thing many of us do in the morning is turn on the TV to get the news we missed overnight or we turn on the radio while in the shower (placed on the sink far away from the water, of course). Our young people can’t even enjoy a walk down the street with their thoughts because their ears are plugged into their iPods.

Silence is in short supply.

I’m no different. It has been my habit for years to turn on the morning news to get the latest headlines and (in the now continual 24/7 news cycle) to listen to the talking heads drone on and on repeating themselves once again every hour.

Eating as Worship!

A Study Of Genesis 2:8-17

By Olabode Oluwatosin

                                      

I’m hungry-

… If heaven were an eatery and she’s taking orders; I would have one plate of praise, two spoons of thanksgiving and a bottle of prayer to go with it. Kindly serve it while it is still worship because only then can the satisfaction be given to God…

 Genesis 2:8-17

“And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.  And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

Pastors Corner – imagine

By Rick Stassi

 Your word I have hidden in my heart,

 That I might not sin against You. Psalm 119:11 (NKJV)

That we might never find God

We are the self-righteous. From the very start we are seeking fulfillment without shame and without regard.

We are born good and we continue on a path of goodness. It is our path of goodness. We are the ones who will stand and face death on this path, defending every move. With each hindrance, ironically, our hearts melt and disperse. “Who shall bear with me my malady”? A haughty spirit will flourish in the sun and wilt in the darkness. No clouds, please, they shall spoil my spirited gait.

We trust in fate and chance.

They are lies.

We glean our wants and needs carefully from those we see around us…..

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.
