James on Prayer

“Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit. My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.”‭‭James‬ ‭5:13-20‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Press On

In Budapest this Sunday I’m excited to speak at Dél-pest Calvary Chapel about pressing on from Hebrews.

Here’s something Paul said on the matter…

“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:58‬ ‭ESV

Croatia: Evangelicals and the unfortunates

Two days ago I posted a link to a blog regarding the unfortunate travelers and the personal experience of one leader.

Melody Wachsmuth, a leader living in Croatia and involved in numerous ministries in the Balkans, was published on the Christianity Today website.

Over the last few weeks we’ve urged that regular folks are stepping up. This is a welcome and articulate example of such.
