The phrase “Mission Accomplished” has almost become synonymous with the opposite—with falsehood, incomplete missions, or unfinished work. “My mission is accomplished,” can be declared with absolute resolve by one—our Lord Jesus Christ.
Hello readers, I missed my post last week because I had some troubles with my back that put me down for most of the week. I’m here again and continuing with the prayer series. Today we will look at a prayer found in John 17:1-26. It is the longest recorded prayer of our Savior. InContinue reading “The Savior’s Longest Prayer—part 1”
Today we will examine the three distinct prayers of Jesus, our Redeemer, while he suffered on the cross. As Lent 2021 begins and soon the observance of Easter what better prayers to look at than those of Jesus Christ, as we continue this series on prayer. After all, he is the Master, Teacher above allContinue reading “Prayers on the Cross”
I’m continuing with the study of prayer. Today we will join Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane to discover what we can learn. The account of Jesus in the Garden is recorded in three of the Gospels. It is found in Matthew 26:36-46; Mark 14:32-42; and Luke 22:39-46. Clichés generally have a nugget of truthContinue reading “Prayer in the Garden”
Last week we looked at Jesus’ response to the disciple’s request, “Teach us to pray.” In this study, we will further investigate Jesus’ instructions about prayer. We will examine what he said at the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), just before presenting the prayer model–the Lord’s Prayer.
My previous post Divine Power touched on prayer as the means to tap into Heaven’s power and authority. In this writing, we will take a look at a well-known prayer from scripture, commonly referred to as the Lord’s prayer.

I am a person who requires little to no air-conditioning, preferring to be a bit warm versus cold. Naturally, the resort had the rooms adequately cooled for the comfort level ofContinue reading “Fighting Master Control”

If you are seeking a solid biblical supplement for your Bible study time, I highly recommend checking out his blog. Plus, he features stunning photography fromContinue reading “Make Haste”
The photo above is from my yard a few winters ago. I don’t particularly like snow, it’s cold and I don’t take pleasure in cold weather. Because I live in the Midwest I see and experience it almost every winter. Visually, I enjoy freshly fallen snow, the picturesque kind, when it looks like a whiteContinue reading “Scarlet Sins—White as Snow”
