Turning Away From His Love

“Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the love that could be theirs" Jonah 2:8 This little verse, hidden away in the Old Testament, was said by a desperate man, a man who had heard from God and yet angrily rejected what was said to him, because his priorities...

What did Abram’s Neighbours Think?

Abram’s neighbours were no more likely to have believed him when he told them what he'd heard God say, than ours would believe us. At least that’s how it seems to me. Can you imagine their response? I don’t think people have only recently become sceptical, humanity...

Walking With The One We Love

It is a strange thing to know He knows me, yes really knows me, including absolutely every single flaw, and, oh, there are so many, and yet He still wants me to draw near, to listen, and then to get on with it, whatever 'it' is that He has said.  Many are the times he...

Tell Them the Dream, Martin

Once upon a time a woman in a crowd called out to a faltering preacher. She cried out 'Tell them the dream, Martin! Tell them the dream!' I wonder if she hadn't, would we know the theme that pounded through Martin Luther King's heart? Would we be so familiar with the...

Soaking Prayer…..Some Practical Details

Before we start to look at the details of how to do soaking prayer there is a question to be answered: 'Is this something we can imagine Jesus doing?' Do the gospels give us any clues? Let's just take a moment to think about this, Jesus spent whole nights of prayer...
