Prayer- my connection to God

Prayer- it’s a word that is scary to some. Why would the God of the universe want to talk to me? Easy – it was His design in the Garden of Eden when He strolled the garden to talk to Adam and Eve. Why does Satan fight us on this? Because unlike the Bible which connects us intellectually to God, prayer connects us emotionally. Satan does not want us to have a connection to God. But we need to.

Hey that’s mine

For far too long, we have allowed our stuff to be stolen from us as Christians. Jesus died in order that we could have everything He took off Satan.

The people element

When we watch the news or scroll through social media, we are bombarded with devastating images of wars and floods. But there is an element that we may be missing – people.
