The Intimate & the Infinite

Lessons from Clinic Prayer

The Intimate & the Infinite

A hand on a shoulder, a tear dropping as a weight lifts because of a burden shared.  Bowed heads and private whispers. This may not be the image that typically defines prayer, because too often we try to find that definition in textbooks and institutions.

My Prayer Journey With Compassion Connect

Posted in Clinics, Blog, Reflections, Prayer

My Prayer Journey With Compassion Connect

In addition to greater opportunities to pray for the sick and to bless people, my confidence and boldness to reach out and take a risk has greatly increased. More importantly, I have observed that many of the volunteers, especially among the young people, have never had or taken an opportunity to reach out and serve the poor in a public gathering. A vision for such service is birthed in them. I have seen multiple times how the clinics are an opportunity for people of diverse backgrounds, ages, experience, maturity levels, talents, and church backgrounds to come together.

The Power of Prayer

A look at a prayer team member's favorite moments

The Power of Prayer
“The purpose of prayer is to give someone a positive encounter with God by receiving a blessing at a place of need. That's what Jesus did. No matter who the person was, it was about them receiving the love, power, and healing He knows is in their hearts.”

Our Journey To Amsterdam

Posted in Blog, Prayer, Abolition Now

Our Journey To Amsterdam

"It is estimated that there are over 25,000 women working in prostitution in the Netherlands. Many of them are victims of human trafficking. Many of them can be found in the Red Light District of Amsterdam. When I think of these beautiful women, sitting behind the windows while gawking tourists stroll past, it’s hard not to see the image of a caged bird in my mind."

Adventures In India

A Tale of Two Pastors

Adventures In India

It’s not every day you are invited to India to speak to two hundred and fifty some pastors eager to soak in your message...but every once in a while life gets interesting; God says “go,” so you pack your bags and tell yourself curry won’t kill you, that’s just in your head.

New Collaboration in NW

The battle for the spiritual health of our city begins here

Posted in News, Blog, Prayer

New Collaboration in NW

Here, before the first piece of armor is ever worn, before the first drop of blood, sweat, or tears is ever shed. Paul, writing to the Ephesians of our battle “against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms,” he doesn’t end with the armor. He ends here:

“Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” (Ephesians 6:18)

 

This end is our beginning.
