Does God Care About the Details? By Judy Trent-Whitnack

Some years ago in my journey with the Lord, He brought me to a place where I talked with Him about everything I ate.  Everything!  There were times when I would so much desire to eat a particular food, that I would talk to Him as I took a bite.  Other times I would hear…

The Incredible Ride By Judy A. Trent-Whitnack

Perhaps you, like me, have been baffled by passages such as Acts 16:22-25, where  Paul and Silas were beaten with rods, struck with many blows, thrown into prison, and had their feet fastened in stocks.  Their response?  Praying and singing hymns of praise to God, as fellow prisoners listened on.

In fact, the believers each created their own special place outside the village where they went to pray in solitude. Each of these “prayer rooms” was accessed by a private footpath through the brush.

Prepare in Prayer by Dan Axtell

 When should you pray? Most of us think about prayer when we are stressed, scared or sick. But is that really the best time to pray? People who understand prayer know you have to pray before the storm comes. If you wait until your moment of greatest need it may be too late. You will…

Prayer as Usual by Dan Axtell

  On the night before Jesus went to the cross Matthew 26:36 tells us, “Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane.” In Luke’s Gospel he says, “Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives.” Because he was writing to a Gentile audience, Luke used the more common Gentile name…
