Sometimes I fear, due to what some call grace, that holiness is a forgotten quality within Christianity. We need the zeal of Phinehas in dealing with sin; starting with our own sins. Due to the deceptive, lying, personal aggrandizing of Balaam to make his own greed successful the Moabites came in with lusty pleasures to … Continue reading A Zeal for GOD, and Holiness

Some great truths on Prayer from Brother Cameron Cloud.
The old adage is true. God works in the circumstances of our lives through prayer. But, more often, prayer changes the one who is praying.
There are times in my Christian life when it is necessary for me to be transformed through prayer. The process of submissively praying about a matter has the power to alter my will, adjust my focus, and improve my perspective of both God and the request. I can’t pray and remain the same.
At times it seems God’s plan is to change me before He changes things. Sometimes, it seems His plan is to change me and leave things as they are (once I’ve been changed there may be no need for my situation to be altered). Either way, I approach the throne seeking His work in me along with His direct intervention in my request.
So, Prayer Changes Things. More importantly, Prayer Changes Me.
