Quickened to Pray

Quickened to Pray

It would have been totally impossible for me to develop a prayer life without first becoming acquainted with the Holy Spirit. It flows so naturally when you know Him, yet apart from Him it is impossible.

When the believers heard that Peter was in prison:

“Prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.” (Acts 12:5)

They learned what it meant to pray without ceasing.

This continual prayer was offered until the […]

What is the one thing you want more than anything else?

Psalm 42:1 says:

“As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.”

Paul the apostle knew what he wanted, and he knew the one thing that would give him his greatest desire in life.

What was that one thing?

In Philippians 3:13-14, he writes:

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting […]

How to Hear from Heaven, Part 2

Do you long to move into God’s presence? Do you sincerely desire to be controlled and empowered by Him?

Do you want to hear from heaven?

The believer’s life should center on an intimate relationship with Him. But how do you begin?

Years ago, a little boy lived next door to a great artist. And every day he would go to his home and watch him paint, entranced for hours as the man worked on his great […]

How to Hear from Heaven, Part 1

Do you want to have intimate communion and communication with God-just you and Him?

Well, He desires that meeting even more than you do!

Prayer is much more than asking God for special favors. It must be a two-way conversation with your Heavenly Father.

Not only do you speak to Him, but He speaks directly to you. To you!

Think back for a moment about when God told Moses to build the Ark of […]

Global Barriers to the Gospel Are Falling

We are moving into a significant season!

So many barriers around the world are falling.

We live in an amazing time when I can type a few sentences, and you can read what I’ve typed in mere seconds. I can talk into a mobile device in any part of the world, and people can receive that teaching instantaneously.

Before He ascended into heaven, Jesus commissioned believers this way:

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing […]

The Three Keys of Prayer

The Three Keys of Prayer

“And I say to you ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you.” (Luke 11:9)

Prayer is an essential part of our relationship with God. Yet, too often we neglect this vital bridge of communication with heaven. In many cases, we don’t pray because we don’t know exactly how to pray — or how often.

Jesus’ disciples clearly […]

Declare God’s Glory

Declare God’s Glory

True prayer begins with confessing who God is.

Before asking the Lord to heal and do signs and wonders and before the place was shaken, the apostles declared:

“Sovereign Lord, you made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them” (Acts 4:24).

When Moses approached God’s throne, he confessed who God is. The Scripture tells us:

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto […]

How To Receive Your Miracle

How To Receive Your Miracle

Have you ever thought that it’s easier to believe God will work a miracle for someone else than to believe He’ll work one for you?

A woman wrote me not long ago and shared that she was a well-educated person who had made a large income—until her crack cocaine addiction ruined her life! She said that she “lived with crooks and collected aluminum cans to pay for her habit”! But […]

Practicing the Presence of God, Part 1

Go with me to a place where few enter, where you are saturated with the presence of God, where the glory is, where you are literally baptized in His awesome power.

As long as you are in  his place, you no longer feel guilty or sinful. That was taken care of in the Outer Court. You pass through the Holy Place, where your soul begins to surrender to the will of the Father.

Then something miraculous […]
