There are hundreds of prayers recorded in the Bible. As we read these prayers by people in the Bible we find they faced the same everyday situations we face and said what we want to say. We can use their words to help us communicate with God. When we struggle to express ourselves to God, it helps to see how others addressed him in similar circumstances. Dr. Stephen Grunlan has compiled these prayers by topic and written an introduction for each topic. He has made available the prayers from Scripture for our everyday use.

It is God’s will for us to be prosperous. Everyone has financial fears, and some of us have faith. Faith and fear cannot reside in the same body. God guarantees our prosperity and says in Philippians 4:19, “God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Yes, he will do his part as long as we do ours by following God’s laws of prosperity from faith to stewardship. Many of us make financial decisions based on fear of the future instead of trusting that God will provide for them. Although we are challenged daily with doubts and concerns for our financial future, we must never doubt that God is in complete control. The author has realized that learning God’s biblical prosperity principles and practicing them actually makes us better Christians. We are poor only because we do not ask God for our prosperity and we do not ask for it according to his way. Gratitude and prayer are inseparable, as well as our self-talk and prayer. As children of God, we have been promised his blessings. All we have to do is ask for them repeatedly, for they are ours.

To still others, Thanksgiving is a significant day in their faith system. But did you know that Thanksgiving is not just in November? To the believer, every day is Thanksgiving; for there isn't a day that goes by that we could not thank ...

Thoughts from a Random Mind is the latest effort by author RL Keller. It’s a daily devotional that is designed not to simply bless and encourage readers but also challenge them to think about who God truly is and how they might improve their walk with Him. They are meant to be thought-provoking, encouraging, edifying, instructional, and hopefully also a blessing to the reader. The author considers himself no different than anyone else—just a believer wrestling each day with his beliefs. These devotions were born out of his own personal struggles with life and how his walk with Christ has grown and become more consistent. God is paramount in RL Keller’s life, and he is attempting to share his struggles through his writings so that the reader can know that he is not alone in the battle.

When Indigenous and non-Indigenous activists work together, what are the ends that they seek, and how do they negotiate their relationships while pursuing social change? Alliances brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders, activists, and scholars in order to examine their experiences of alliance-building for Indigenous rights and self-determination and for social and environmental justice. The contributors, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, come from diverse backgrounds as community activists and academics. They write from the front lines of struggle, from spaces of reflection rooted in past experiences, and from scholarly perspectives that use emerging theories to understand contemporary instances of alliance. Some contributors reflect on methods of mental decolonization while others use Indigenous concepts of respectful relationships in order to analyze present-day interactions. Most importantly, Alliances delves into the complex political and personal relationships inherent in both Indigenous and non-Indigenous struggles for social justice to provide insights into the tensions and possibilities of Indigenous-non-Indigenous alliance and coalition-building in the early twenty-first century.

We should thank God for every one of us. We are a church family, and like most families, we will have our ups and downs. But after all has been said and done, we are to be thankful to God that we have each other as a church family.

Two pertinent questions that were foremost in our minds regarding the COVID-19 pandemic were “when will this virus end? After about two months and no immediate end in sight, the second question became “what’s going to get us through this pandemic?” This unprecedented virus changed our entire way of living. Businesses, stores, schools, and houses of worship were closed. Shelter in place, wash your hands frequently, use hand sanitizer, wear a mask, social distance became the mandated directives of the day. Many jobs were lost due to business shut-downs, which created economic hardships for many families It was my prayer that as I prepared these messages “for such a time as this," I would be guided by the Holy Spirit to deliver a Word that would offer peace (“Perfect Peace”), encouragement (“Yes There Is!”), salvation (“God’s Gift of Repentance”), God’s protection (“Refuge at the Lord’s Table”), and a desire within the hearer to have a closer relationship with God (“Sheltered in Place”). As you read, visualize, and hear these messages in your heart, mind, and spirit, it is my prayer that you will be able to answer the question “WHAT WILL GET US THROUGH?”

We often fail to acknowledge the truth that every day is a wonderful day, out there is always something of beauty for which we can give thanks. Whether or not we realize it, praise and thanksgiving are expressions necessary not only to ...
