Do Not Be Afraid

Fear can, at times, be a good thing. God has given us a natural “fear” response that is beneficial to us when our physical or psychological safety is threatened. However, it all too easily grows to hold a place of authority in our lives… a place that it was never meant to hold. One of […]

Jamaica – Week 1

37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?  39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And […]

Grace and Salt

2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 3 At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— 4 that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to […]

Be Still and Know…

Be Still and Know… If you were to ask someone to complete the often quoted verse of Psalm 46:10, you’ll most likely get a response. Be still and know…“that I am God” But sadly, and most often, it stops right there and the exciting second half of the verse is rarely included. “Be still, and […]

How Should the Church Pray Together?

If you’ve been reading and praying with us over the past two weeks, you’ll know that we have been talking about about what happens when the church prays together?  This week, we look at the question of “how should the church pray together?” – specifically in regards to strategic, petitionary prayer for the nations to […]

Why the Church Prays Together…

Last week we looked at what happens when the church prays together. This week, we continue with the question “Why do we pray together?” There are many reasons why we pray together, as there are many types of prayer (confession, praise etc.). But let’s look specifically at why does the church unite in strategic, petitionary […]

When the Church Prays Together

Just shy of 1 year ago, our TenTwo prayer initiative began.  It started with an increased sense of urgency to pray that the Lord of the Harvest would send out laborers into the harvest field (the unreached and unengaged). Specifically,we began to ask that the Lord send 100 laborers from Lifepoint.  Over the next several […]

From Death to Life

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17 Spring is often a beautiful reminder of what Christ did for us on the cross. Not only because Easter falls in this season, but also because if we look around us, we’ll see […]

Gospel Foundation

Even in mission, there is a dangerous tendency & temptation to “do mission” apart from the power of God, the person of Christ, the Word of God and the Spirit of God.  We must be desperate for Him!  The Gospel of Jesus Christ must be our starting point, our sustaining point, and finishing point of […]

Pray for Cuba

On Monday morning a team of 9 from LifePoint arrived back in the US after a week of prayer and ministry alongside the church in Cuba.

Your Kingdom Come

1 Now there were in the church at Antioch prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a lifelong friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 Then after fasting and praying they laid […]

Looking To Jesus

1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that […]

They Had Been With Jesus

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus. – Acts 4:13 This passage makes it clear – it wasn’t what Peter and John knew, it was who they knew. Uneducated. Common Men. But, they had been […]

Pursuing the Heart of God

…The LORD has sought out a man after his own heart… – 1 Samuel 13:14 There was only one man in the Bible who is called “a man after God’s own heart.”  Why was David given such a description?  He was a shepherd boy made king, exalted by God into a position of honor and responsibility, […]

Fear Not

Fear can, at times, be a good thing. God has given us a natural “fear” response that is beneficial to us when our physical or psychological safety is threatened. However, it all too easily grows to hold a place of authority in our lives… a place that it was never meant to hold. One of […]

Love Your Enemies

Praying for Chile – Team there this week!

 “Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if the gospel […]

The Comfort Trap

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. 26 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a […]

Praying for Stowe Mission

34 Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited […]
