Mustang, Apples and The Prayers of a Righteous Man

An empty refrigerator. A half-filled box of spaghetti. A basket of apples. That was it for the next four days. This desperate lack of food was by no means because we were without monthly income. In our newly married life, my husband and I had no financial common sense and we had gotten ourselves into this reckless mess.

The longest time that I ever remember holding my breath for was somewhere around a minute and a half; I could never make it to the two-minute goal for which I was reaching. However, on June 8, 2009, 37-year old French free diver Stéphane Mifsud set an amazing world record by holding his breath for an astonishing...

Do you know someone with so many miracles happening in his or her life that you wonder if they are for real? These people are rare, but they do still exist. I know of such a man. Jeremiah experienced so many miracles that some people in the church decided all his power couldn’t possibly be from God, and they tried to prohibit his work. Let me share his story.

My prayer life was in a lukewarm state. I really didn’t understand Christ-focused prayers. Every time I prayed, I would always bring my requests to God and ask Him to fix the problems I presented. The list was always endless with demands that I wanted God to do. I was praying for worthwhile things but in the wrong...

God asked Noah to build an ark at a time when the earth had never seen rain. Such was definitely a project that he could not do on his own. Imagine when his neighbors and friends came by, only to laugh at and ridicule him, even questioning him about his faith. Noah must have searched himself to examine why he was doing it. But obedience reminds us that our responsibilities are first and foremost to God alone.

There are gangsters in my neighborhood. Before you get concerned for my safety, these are harmless to humans and are rarely covert in their operations. No, these gangsters operate in the open using audible communication. It is unfortunate I don’t speak crow because I think it would be enjoyable to hear them strategize.

I do not deserve answers to prayer. I do not deserve his incredible mercy. Yet somehow, He continues to shower me with what I like to refer to as a bucket of endless grace and love. As I was growing up and even into my adult life, I think that I had it all wrong, for my prayer life was more of a routine than a relationship.
