Prayer That Sets People Free

“Peter was kept in the prison, but prayer for him was being made fervently by the church to God” (Acts 12:5 NASB). It is tragic that we rarely understand or utilize the power of united prayer. We fail to realize that prayer can do anything God can […]


Cultivating Desperation: The Key to Deeper Prayer

I remember a Ugandan pastor who came to the U.S. years ago who said that his message to America was “Desperation or Devastation.” That was a riveting thought. And of course, coming from Uganda, they had lived that in their country. It reminded me that desperation is […]


When God Answered the Prayers of a Scotsman

The year was 1950. The famous revival on the windswept Isle of Lewis in the Scottish Outer Hebrides was already underway. It began when two elderly sisters fervently prayed. Peggy Smith was 84 and completely blind. Christine, her younger sister by two years, could hardly walk and […]


A Nation turns back to God

The book of Nehemiah is an amazing account of one of the great revivals in human history. The Jews had rebelled against God, leading to their being overcome by and in captivity to the Babylonians for many years. True to form, God still had His hand on […]

Look at the men and women of great biblical renown: Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Deborah, Esther, Elijah, Elisha, Mary, Peter, James, […]


Revival and the Glory of God

[Christians] want revival but, sadly, for the wrong reasons, Henry Blackaby once told me. “Until we want revival for the glory of God, God will not send it,” the Experiencing God author said over lunch one day at the North American Mission Board. Blackaby’s statement is one […]


Our Warrior

Last week’s devotion also addressed the vital topic of national fear. Fear can paralyze a nation or cause it to react in inappropriate ways. President Franklin Roosevelt understood that. When addressing a nation mired in the Great Depression, he reminded the people that the only thing they […]


Hope in the Lord

The promise of renewed strength makes this a favorite Bible verse for many. The picture of a soaring eagle brings hope to those who are weary. For many years now, another soaring eagle has brought hope to many. The picture of America as a soaring eagle, proud, […]


The Gift of Wisdom

Proudly watching over New York Harbor and the nation stands the majestic Statue of Liberty. Liberty is portrayed in this statue and elsewhere as a lady. Such a precious commodity as liberty is rightly given human attributes. It is fascinating that the book of Proverbs does a […]
