“….but I am a man of prayer”

A local testimony of a renewed prayer life  

Love your pastor

The radical Muslim minority?




Pray with, and for, other Leaders and Churches in your Area


King Davidis lamenting some of the behaviours of those around him. They include deceit, lying, accusations and other personal attacks. Then he reflects:  

…. but I am a man of prayer (Psalm 109:4

This is a powerful read for those under pressure in ministry.   


A testimony of a renewed love of prayer

I was listening to a local pastor sharing a recent experience.

He was feeling a bit dry so he and his wife had a spiritual retreat together. They made time to pray. The discipline of prayer became addictive. He relates “I prayed until I was praying”. He now has an ongoing love of prayer which is also recognised by those in his church.

Let’s be just as alert to our own walk with Jesus as was this sensitive leader.

Love your Pastor (a humourous, yet close to the bone encouragement to love pastors) 

A young Muslim lady asks a question of Bridgitte Gabriel on a Q&A panel and gets a scary history lesson on the power of minorities. “The only thing we learn from history is that no one learns anything from history”. Follow link for the hard hitting 5 minute response.
