God speaks to us through the Bible. We speak to Him through prayer. In prayer, we make our thoughts known to the mind of God. No matter how much good we do, or how much we study God’s Word, we still need His care and protection. This is the reason Paul told us to “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). It is important that we know the answer to some basic questions about prayer. Continue reading “What Is Acceptable Prayer”
I want to encourage Christians who are no longer faithful to God to return before it is eternally too late. Contrary to popular teaching the Word of God plainly states that a child of God can fall from grace. (I Cor. 10:12; Gal. 5:4; Heb. 3:13; 2 Pet. 2:20-22). Someone has observed that in a given community there may be as many unfaithful Christians as there are faithful. If you are one of those precious souls who, after having obeyed the gospel have fallen away please consider returning to God while there is still time. By remaining in an unfaithful condition you risk being lost for all eternity. Also, consider the influence you are having on your family and friends. While living apart from God you are in no position to encourage anyone to obey the gospel and live a Christian life. Your return to God requires repentance, confession of sin and prayer for forgiveness (Acts 17:30; 8:22). Why not return to God, confess the sin in your life and be restored (I Jn. 1:7-10)?

Times For Prayer
As New Testament Christians we have the privilege of prayer. The early church “continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:42 emphasis L.B.).
In the New Testament we find that Jesus was steadfast in his prayer life and the first century Christians prayed often (Luke 3:21; Mt. 14:23; Mk. 1:35; Acts 2:41-42; Acts 12:5; Rom. 12:12; Eph. 6:18). Christians today should also be in the habit of regular prayer (1 Th. 5:17-18; Js. 5:16: Heb. 4:16).
We should all have set times for prayer and be ready at any time to pray. Continue reading “Times For Prayer by Leon Brashear”
