I was recently praying with a friend from Psalm 71 when the words of verse 2 inspired my prayer: In your justice, rescue and deliver me;listen closely to me and save me. (Psalm 71:2 CSB; emphasis mine) My prayer that day became “Lord, sometimes I don’t even have words to offer to You. There justContinue reading “Ask God for the Words”

Incline My Heart
by Carol J. H. Kobulnicky Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain! Psalm 119:36 ESV O my brethren, do not seek to find in circumstances the explanation of prayerlessness; seek it where God’s Word declares it to be, in the hidden aversion of the heart to a holy God. —A. Murray Conviction. ThereContinue reading “Incline My Heart”
Is God Your Intimate Friend?
Exodus 33:11 Thus the LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. In a recent personal time with the Lord, I was considering what it means to “submit” to Him. As I often do, I wrote the word “SUBMIT” down the side of my journal page and soughtContinue reading “Is God Your Intimate Friend?”
Be Still and REALIZE…
(Gina Writing…) Psalms 46:10 TPT 10 Surrender your anxiety. Be still and realize that I am God. I am God above all the nations, and I am exalted throughout the whole earth. As I was spending some time with the Lord recently, I felt drawn back to Psalm 46:10. This is a scripture that I have loved over andContinue reading “Be Still and REALIZE…”
Are You Fighting Discouragement in Prayer?
Let’s be honest! There is discouragement around us every day in this world. The world is a broken and dark place that needs the redemption of Jesus. We are here to bring the light of His gospel, but sometimes we get battle-weary and we fight discouragement. I was driving into Laramie awhile back and theContinue reading “Are You Fighting Discouragement in Prayer?”
Love Never Fails
by Carol J. H. Kobulnicky Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. ItContinue reading “Love Never Fails”
—Carol J. H. Kobulnicky I first encountered the idea of praying Scripture over 20 years ago when I picked up a copy of Kenneth Boa’s 1997 book: Face to Face: Praying the Scriptures for Intimate Worship. At the time, my only experience with the beauty and power of praying Scripture was through formal church liturgy—something thatContinue reading “Praying Scripture”
Does Prayer Really Matter?
Gina writing…2-1-2021 I was going in a different direction with this week’s blog, but yesterday as I was doing my morning prayer time, I was struck with the idea, “Does Prayer Really Matter?” As I look at scripture, I find that prayer seemed to matter very much to the early church: Acts 1:14 “They allContinue reading “Does Prayer Really Matter?”
Reflecting on Laments
By Carol J. H. Kobulnicky I spend quite a bit of time in Psalms. God uses that book in particular to remind me of God’s character as well as how I am not alone in what I experience in this broken world. That book contains a fair number of laments in which the psalmist cries out toContinue reading “Reflecting on Laments”
