Interceding For Others

From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:5-7)  One of the most maligned characters in Christian history is the disciple identified i...  Read More

No Shame In Asking For Help
by Ministry Support on January 12th, 2021
Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. “Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.” (Matthew 20:32-33)  For some reason, asking for help has been labeled as a sign of weakness in today’s culture. This upsets me because if you never ask for help, how will things get any better? You’re never going to experience the peace, the relief, the freedom, or the healing ...  Read More

You Can Tell Jesus
by Ministry Support on September 16th, 2020
The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and his dinner guests, he ordered that her request be granted and had John beheaded in prison.
