New Hearts and New Prayers

The day after my mother-in-law received a brand new heart, I was lying in bed, praying out loud (it helps me stay awake), “And please God, be with Mom. Give her peace as she waits. . .”

A Diaconate that PRAYS Together, Stays Together!

Prayer is how we commune with God and it plays (or should play!) a huge role in our daily lives and in our relationships with others, as well as our work in His Kingdom. Here at Diaconal Ministries Canada, we want to encourage, equip and empower deacons to make prayer a regular part of their ministry.

Psalm 61: A Hail-Mary Psalm

The terrible thing about being in a low place, either physical or spiritual, is the vulnerability of it. And if you’re anything like me, you then simply toss up a “hail-Mary” (or a last ditch effort) to God.

Being Poor and Needy

How often do we admit that we’re poor and needy? I'm not talking about finances or creating drama. This kind of poor and needy is a spiritual state, one in which we are completely sapped dry spiritually.

The Thin Thread of Life

It doesn't matter if we're young, or just think we are young, but man oh man life holds on by an awfully thin thread. Every day is a gift worth treasuring. Every day.

To Draw Is to Pray

As I draw this flower, it really does feel like I’m seeing it for the first time. In this way, drawing is like prayer. Prayer is the practice of learning to wake up to the world, having our eyes opened.

Tuckered Out by Prayer

I never realized prayer can tucker a person out. Like when people hit the gym, they have a good workout and they’re tired yet they come back feeling good as well, almost energized. It’s being tired in a good way.

Groaning

We’ve been through times both of us hope never, ever to experience again. When God doesn’t pick up the phone, believers feel unspeakably alone. Then there are no words, only groaning.

A Heart-Tree

There’s something powerful behind saying things out loud. Sometimes I prefer to pray with my mind and heart but it's less impactful. Praying audibly worked a strange magic over me.
