Talking with God

By Talking With God
There is no wrong way to pray to God. Our relationship with him is private and public at the same time. Our purpose is to educate and equip Christians with tools to have a successful prayer life. We want to invest in helping you pray more consistently and more often. God listens to us always and even if you stutter a million times in one prayer he doesn't tune you out!

Experiencing God - Chapter 7 - God Pursues a Love Relationship With You
We are walking through a book that changed the foundations of how we perceive God. Henry Blackaby shares how he has always understood and walked with God. Join us as we learn how God, while all powerful and all-knowing, does not want to use those attributes to enslave and smother us. He instead wants to have a loving and paternal relationship with us that allows us to flourish and be free of our burdens. He teaches us that our 'job' is to know God, and how much He wants to know about us. Then our eyes are opened, and we can see where God is working and we go and join Him in HIS work....NOT the other way around.

Christians and Politics
Sometimes God just says plainly, 'Do this' and you do. A break from what I had planned but when the spirit moves, you answer. Politics are a dividing point for Christians and non-Christians. It's also a problem within the community of Christians. Do politics define us? What does define us? Listen in, I think that this is easily the best episode we've had. I hope it inspires you to love one another and work together. Regardless of your political stances. Are you interested in being on our podcast?

Praying for Your Enemy
Praying for your enemies is an exercise in the spirit. Your heart fights against the knowledge that we are commanded to pray for them. It's a deep form of love that you must learn. Christ prayed for his enemies and instructed us to do the same. Why do we struggle with that? Let's talk about the importance of praying for your enemies and how it can bring you closer to God, heal you (and them), and turn your heart more towards living like Christ.

Pray Like A Child
One of the most important things that Jesus’ taught us was ‘How to Pray’ He is asked by the disciples and he gives us not only an explanation but an example.
