A treasured letter.
Twenty-one hundred miles from home … and upon my arrival, not knowing a single soul. It was quite an experience—mostly a good one. See, I had chosen to go to a Christian liberal arts college in…Continue

Most people do not pray with authority. Most people do not even know they have authority and power to access when they pray. So here’s the scoop, Christian—at the end of Jesus’ earthly ministry, he told the people to pray for things ‘in his name’.

Back on August 30th, in a Morning Briefing entitled “The Deeper Life”, I wrote that I believe God is calling you and me to live just that—the deeper life.
