In order to become a Christian, we must be born of the Spirit of God. But to live like a Christian, we must continually be led by the Spirit of God.
Paul applies this principle of being led by the Holy Spirit to our prayer life. Prayer is an essential part of a Christian's walk with God. It is how we communicate with God. After Christ's death and resurrection, we receive direct access to God. This access allows us the ability to pray for ourselves and the responsibility
to pray for other people.

In the minutes that they fight, it’s the hours of training that pay off. The storied 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division had to overcome some of the toughest training the army had to offer before parachuting behind enemy lines the night before D-Day in 1944. They trained before they went to war.Read More

There were no thorns on the trees, no stickers hiding in the grass, and they couldn’t even get a sunburn.

Human nature is predisposed to selfishness from a young age. A word common to every toddler the world over is, “Mine!” Toddlers know how to say “mine,” but disciples of Jesus must learn to say, “Thy will be done.” If we are to grow as followers of Jesus, we must embrace discipline.Read More
