From Genesis to Revelation, God is calling his children to intercession. All children of God, Jews and Gentiles, obedient and disobedient children are encouraged to come to God, in good times and in bad times. God is exposed as standing with an open arm patiently waiting for all to come home to God. So that God will be our God and we will all be his people. Prayer Communion guide book provides that opportunity for everyone to spend 40 Days 4o Nights of Prayer Communion with Almighty God.
At the age of about 15yrs, Dr. Kabuin Thaddeus Kabere trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior from sin. Completely convicted by God's word in the Book of James 1:2 "Count it all joy my brethren when ye fall into divers temptations" (KJV) For the very first time he saw the need for a savior. During that Sunday morning service the teenage young man will not rest until he later kneeling by his dormitory bed side invited Jesus Christ into his heart for salvation. The next day (Monday) he stormed into the School Chaplains office, and the Chaplain prayed again with him, and send him off to the local Baptist Pastor's office to prepare for Baptism. After enquirers class the young man was baptized by immersion on the 24th of March 1984 at Ebenezer Baptist Church at the foot of Mt Fako; Buea. The young man grew up to become a youth Pastor, a Pastor, a Church Planter, and Missionary.

Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Living through the Lord's Prayer

Sale 59% off

Karl Barth's legendary image of preaching with the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other now has a matching image for praying. In Ain't Too Proud to Beg Telford Work encourages praying with a social documentary in one hand and the Lord's Prayer in the other. The result is neither a commentary on the Lord's Prayer nor a theology of prayer. Instead it is an exercise book that uses prayer to strengthen our theological muscles.
Work proposes that we take whatever is happening in our world -- a political election or the latest war will do -- and set the Lord's Prayer in the middle of it. Let that prayer shed light on the scene and expose what matters. Then pray it. Then look again and see how the prayer is a response to what matters. These three movements give structure to the book as a whole and to each chapter within it. Prayed this way, the Lord's Prayer is always new and never quite the same.
Ecumenical, evangelical, postmodern, and irenic in tone, Ain't Too Proud to Beg ends not with a neat scholarly wrap-up but with an open-ended -Amen- -- three sparkling, joyful sermons -- a fitting ending to Work's provocative exploration of prayer as a theological process.

There is but one king that I know. It is he whom I love and worship. If I were to be killed a thousand times for my loyalty to him, I would still be his servant. Christ is on my lips, Christ is in my heart; no amount of suffering will take him from me.--Genesius of Rome These are more than lofty words. They are a reflection of ultimate faith spoken by a person staring death in the face. Like a flaming torch, they illuminate for us the reality the martyrs saw, the truth that gripped their hearts and lifted their eyes to heaven in the face of fire, sword, and executioner's axe. biographies of sixty Christians who died for their faith, from Stephen, the church's first martyr, to Bahram Dehqani-Tafti of Iran, who was shot to death in 1981. In today's age of uncertainty, spiritual pluralism, and self-indulgence, the words of the martyrs remind us of the worthiness of Jesus and the costliness of the gospel. They humble us with their commitment. They fortify our faith with their honesty and certitude. And they direct our vision toward eternal realities that far outshine anything this world has to offer.

Divine Hours Prayers for Springtime Manual for Prayer

$21.00
The third and final volume in a trilogy of prayer manuals compiled by Publishers Weekly religion editor Phyllis Tickle as a contemporary Book of Hours to guide Christians gently yet authoritatively through the daily offices.

The Divine Hours is the first major literary and liturgical reworking of the sixth-century Benedictine Rule of fixed-hour prayer. This beautifully conceived and thoroughly modern three-volume guide will appeal to the theological novice as well as to the ecclesiastical sophisticate. Making primary use of the Book of Common Prayer and the writings of the Church Fathers, The Divine Hours is also a companion to the New Jerusalem Bible, from which it draws its Scripture readings. The trilogy blends prayer and praise in a way that, while extraordinarily fresh, respects and builds upon the ancient wisdom of Christianity.

The third and final book in the set, Prayers for Springtime, provides prayers, psalms, and readings for this season associated with rebirth. Compact, it is perfect for those seeking greater spiritual depth. As a contemporary Book of Hours, The Divine Hours: Prayers for Springtime heralds a renewal of the tradition of disciplined daily prayer, and gives those already using the first two volumes the completion they are seeking. With this volume, the series culminates with three prayer manuals encompassing the liturgical and calendar year with the offices for every day.

Eastertide Prayers for Lent Through Easter from the Divine Hours

Sale 20% off
In her acclaimed trilogy, The Divine Hours, Phyllis Tickle introduced modern Christians to the time-honored practice of "praying the hours." In this exquisite new volume, she provides a vibrant program of prayer dedicated to the anticipation of Christ's resurrection.

Beginning with Ash Wednesday and moving through Lent and on to Easter Sunday, Eastertide provides the daily prayers that bring practitioners into the full spirit of this season. Each day is filled with psalms, readings from the Bible, and hymns of praise and worship, just as they appear in the larger volume, The Divine Hours: Prayers for Springtime. Newcomers to this beloved tradition will find that Eastertide is the perfect introduction to joining the ancients in the tradition of fixed-hour prayer.

"A wise rabbi once told me that it is not how many prayers we don't say that matters to God, but rather how many we do. That is important to all of us, but especially for beginners. If this is your first attempt to return to this most ancient of Christian practices, it is wise to remember that you are entering into a discipline and, like all disciplines, this one sits hard and heavy upon one at times. There are hours you will miss and/or some that you can't even begin to figure out how to observe. That is all right, for either the joy will carry you into greater joy and transmute the discipline into privilege, or you will find yourself simply the wiser and the richer for such experience as you have had. As the rabbi said, that is what matters ultimately."

This book of daily readings offers a wonderfully fresh way of deepening the way that we talk to God. Alongside author Henry Martin, we "eavesdrop" or "listen in" on forty-nine instances of people who actually spoke to Jesus in the Bible and ask what we can learn from what they said and how he responded. Sometimes his answers brought delight to those who asked him, and sometimes his response was not what they expected or hoped for. In the final section of the book, readers encounter the conversations that took place during Jesus' final days and bring us closer to him during Holy Week. Eavesdropping can be read in daily sittings at any time of year and is particularly suitable for Lent.
