    3 Myths About Prayer (And How to Pray Authentically)

    Jesus, I need You right now. How many times have I whispered these words–or sobbed them–in desperation. When nothing else works, and all of my strength is used up, I finally let down my defenses and say the simple words. I let God in. But that’s the thing about prayer that most people don’t understand. Even I didn’t understand for the longest time. Prayer is not a one-way request line to heaven, but an intimate conversation with God. Sometimes it’s messy. Sometimes it’s silly. But it’s always real and always raw. Of course, we must unlearn a lot of what culture and other Christians have taught us about prayer in…

    Why Prayer is Not a Waste of Time

    On what should’ve been a quiet, peaceful Sunday morning, our nation was rattled by the tragic news of a shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Over two dozen are dead and many have been injured. In the face of such tragedy, many of us rally together in prayer and peaceful vigils. However, some people on social media are saying that prayers are useless. They don’t do anything to help, and therefore, a waste of time.

I take a deep breath and Fall forward. Suddenly the pit becomes my platform As the vultures fly away. The ropes are unraveling, My thoughts shatter, As You begin to burn within me.   I’m on the edge, And…

    Wasted

    Another day that feels Wasted. As I lie awake, heart racing, Trying to put my pieces back together So I don’t feel Broken. I fell today For the lies of another empty song. I lost today In the front lines of my mind. My body is tired, Ravaged by distress. My soul is tired, Weighed down by memories That take me to melancholy lane. All the things I’ve wanted to do, But never could Wasted. I can see the dream stealers, Creeping in the middle of the night. Making me forget why I Chose to move forward. You say Your yoke is easy But this burden I have has tied…
