  • Why Pray If God Is Sovereign?

    Christian Post ^ | 02/16/2018 | Darin Smith
    "People ask me, 'Why pray if God is sovereign?' I respond, 'Why pray if He isn't?" -- Michael Horton As I have reflected on my prayer and devotional life and this statement, I am reminded that it isn't that we "should" pray -- as in a duty -- but we "must" pray -- as in a relationship. You and I can no more attempt to live this thing called the Christian life without prayer than we can live each second and day without breath. I have jotted down several faith lessons the Lord has reminded recently from the Scripture concerning...

    A Pre-Lenten Preparation for Priests and a Request for Prayers from the Faithful Msgr. Charles Pope • February 12, 2018 • Priests need to prepare for Lent too. The Book of the Prophet Malachi provides a kind of mini-examen for them.As we consider the sins of the priests enumerated below, please understand that neither the biblical text nor my commentary should be construed as meaning that all or even most priests are like this. Sadly, though, sins and shortcomings are far too common among the clergy. As priests must strive to be better and more holy, so must the...
  • Examining Calvins Rules of Prayer (Part 2) (Protestant/Evangelical Devotional)

    02/13/2018 7:00:09 AM PST · by Gamecock · 36 replies
    John Calvins third rule of prayer was that we must always pray with genuine feeling. Prayer is a matter of passion: Many repeat prayers in a perfunctory manner from a set form, as if they were performing a task to God They perform the duty from custom, because their minds are meanwhile cold, and they ponder not what they ask. A fourth rule of prayer from Calvin was that it be always accompanied by repentance: God does not listen to the wicked; that their prayers, as well as their sacrifices, are an abomination to them. For it is right...
