Prayer

There is More to Prayer than the Answer

I sit and wait for God to let me in on His, up until now, secret plot for my life. I have heard it a thousand times or maybe only one hundred times, as a matter of fact I don’t know how many times I have heard it and I don’t know how many times I have preached it but I do know that yes, no or wait are the only possible answers to my requests. So I sit and wait with nothing to do but wait until wait becomes a yes or no or maybe a no not now becomes a wait a little longer or a yes for now becomes a no for later or a wait becomes a…

I Am Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

That’s a lot of people inside my head but don’t worry because the title is a little misleading. A more accurate title for this post would be, I Wish I Was Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. For those not familiar with my “I Am _____” series, this is usually the part where I add the disclaimer about me knowing that my name is really Dave followed by something that eludes to the fact that while I may be Dave I am still  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego or whomever the title suggests I might be.

COVID 19 and Revival

A Call To Prayer

People around the world sit in their homes waiting for good news.  They wonder how long this will last.  They wonder what they touched, who breathed on them, what dangers lurk that science has not yet discovered.  In history when countries and continents were ravaged by disease all people had was prayer.  There were no answers. Science was not that advanced. God was all they had.  When prayer was answered people recognize that there was something more than them.  But now we have medical science.  Now all we have to do is sit and wait, hunkered down in our homes until this passes.  Someone will come up with a vaccine.  Someone will discover the treatment.  All we have to do is wait.
