Prayer Thought – Meditating on Christ

MEDITATING ON CHRIST Being a person of prayer takes more than merely praying. It requires deeply meditating on God’s Word, His character, His purpose in different and oftentimes difficult situations. Knowing this, and being someone who desires to make many of these things a priority, I have found a beautiful truth about Jesus that is applicable here. After Christ’s resurrection, Jesus had His pick of doing anything He desired…any position, any “job” if you will. And do you know what He chose to do? Out of everything in this world, Jesus chose to pray for us, His people (Heb. 7:24-25). …

Update on Ukraine

UPDATE ON UKRAINE As many of you know Ukraine is facing a very difficult time. Since February 24, 2022, when Russia invaded Ukraine, death and separation from loved ones have become a ubiquitous reality for most, if not all Ukrainians. Over 8 million Ukrainians have become refugees and another 5 million are considered internally displaced people. Because Kontaktmission is a networked mission movement, complete with already vetted front-line churches, we were able to react quickly and efficiently to the incredible needs of the Ukrainian people. Our response is particularly interesting to believers because we were prepared to not only share …

Prayer Thought: The Good Giver

Prayer Thought: The Good Giver “Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us- to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Eph. 3:20-21, HCSB).” It would seem as though, in Christian circles, that we talk quite a bit about how God is the good-Giver of all things. Yet, dare I put myself in a different camp, I’m not sure if we theologically AND functionally know this to be true. Faith can be a …

Prayer Thought: Seek His Face Always

Prayer Thought: Seek His Face Alway I love praying Scripture. In fact, one of my favorite things to do is pray some of the Psalms that extol God’s character. These chapters and verses get my heart and mind ready for taking up my cross and following the Lord. I’ve actually been praying that more recently. I used to ask that the Lord come with me on my journey through the day, until I realized it’s not MY journey in the first place. So, I’ve been asking the Lord, through His Word and prayer that He take me wherever HE’S going, …
