Dr. W's Reflections...


          We are building our lives on the promises of God.

          Because his Word is unbreakable, our hope is unshakable.

          We do not stand on the problems of life or the pain in life.

          We stand on the great and precious promises of God. 

                              –Max Lucado, Unshakable Hope, 14

          When you and I pray in faith, we will find ourselves in the center of God’s will. When we pray in faith–confessing our dependence on God’s promises, then the ministry of prayer will always align us with God’s plans and unite us with God’s purposes. 

          We have been blessed to be a blessing. So, let’s continue to pray: “Lord, send people to us and send us to people.” 

The Lord be with you,





          “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16).

          These inspired words remind us that the ministry of prayer not only connects us to God but the ministry of prayer functions as a means of grace so that we can actually participate with God in what he is doing in the world. When we pray in faith, great things can happen. When we learn to be completely dependent on God, then our prayers have power. 

          For a believer, prayer is never a last resort but always a first resource. And so, since prayer is a first resource, then the beginning point for anything that you or I would ever propose to do for God or presume to ask from God should find its origin in prayerful conversation with God. Great things can happen when you and I pray–not because of the power of the words we speak to God but because of the power of God who hears our prayers and then responds to the petitions and requests we make.
