Loving the Lord

Praying with Jesus

Scripture tells us that Jesus lives to make intercession; He lives to pray! If you listen closely, you’ll hear what He is praying for: the burdens of your heart, the needs of your life—the Savior is praying for you. Jesus talks to God on our behalf, but is He praying alone? What would it mean if we joined Jesus in prayer?

Conversation With God

Conversation is a natural part of life, but most people think communication with God through a vibrant life of prayer isn't possible or is only for "super Christians." 
Conversation with God shares spiritual insights and provides a clear path for all people to experience a deeper relationship with God through prayer. You can walk with the Father more intimately than ever before. 

Cry Out to the Lord

A collection of various authors helps us process though the times we just need to Cry Out To The Lord! Learn to look up when everything is falling apart. Call out to the Lord in humility and brokenness. Rely fully on the power of the Spirit. Enter into bold and believing prayer. Live out the mission of Christ.

5 Assumptions About God

Who is God? Is He angry and aggressive? Maybe He’s just interested in punishing people. Does He care for the weak, sick, and protect children from bad dreams? Or perhaps, He’s a genie who gives us everything we want if we believe in Him enough. Does God really hate homosexuals and Muslims? What is God like? How does He view me? What does He want me to do?  To understand the mind of God we must first understand His heart. Suppose God actually loves us and wants what is best for us. How might this affect our understanding of God and our openness to follow Him?

The Experiential Gospel of John is designed to engage followers of Jesus as they impart both the gospel and live out a relevant, daily faith (1 Thessalonians 2:7-8).

These exercises are created to move beyond seeking to simply know or study God's truth and move toward actually experiencing it. Why is this important? It's only an experiential, Spirit-empowered faith that can change our lives and the lives of those around us.

The Truth Experience Kit

Josh joins his son, Sean, to draw on his life’s work and comprehensively address a vital issue: why an entire generation of young Christians and millions of older believers are confused about what they believe, why they believe it, and how it’s relevant.

The Unshakable Truth is uniquely positioned for younger Christians because it presents apologetics relationally, focusing on how Christianity’s doctrines affect relationships. The authors…
  • ground every assertion in the overarching story of creation, incarnation, and re-creation.
  • distill 12 crucial “faith statements.” For example, “A personal Creator God exists.”
  • explain why each statement is trustworthy, how it applies to real life, and using examples, stories, and experiences?what its relevance is.

31 Days of Prayer for My Pastor

Prayer for your pastor can change your church, your pastor, and you!
Church members need care, counsel, wisdom, and direction. And people outside the church need the gospel. These demands create unique pressures for every pastor. A pastor who says yes to all of the ministry needs often says no to a spouse and kids. When pastors have a personal crisis, many pastors may feel alone and have few people to turn to for true support.
