  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror.

November 22, 2013 - Dwelling in the Homeland of Prayer

By Joseph Parker

"Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed" (Mark 1:35, NKJV).

Christ modeled beautifully so much of the life every believer can live. One area of our life Christ modeled was His prayer life. If Jesus made it a high priority to pray daily — and He was the Son of God — we too need to make daily prayer a high priority.

"Pray without ceasing" (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Life should be a running conversation with God.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:6,7).

Someone once said, "When we work, we work. When we pray, God works. Always remember God can do everything we can do so much better!

There is no such thing as praying too much!

"Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law" (Psalm 119:18). That's a good prayer to pray just before you spend time reading God's Word.

Every husband and wife should pray together daily. Every parent should pray daily with his or her children. Parents, teach and guide your children to pray every day for you and for their brothers and sisters and others.

Make it your goal to saturate your life and your family and the concerns of your life with prayer. God's precious gift of prayer gives us the privilege to talk with our Heavenly Father. It is one of the most valuable gifts in all of life.

— Joseph Parker is the host of "The Hour of Intercession" on American Family Radio (afa.net/radio).
