We always need God’s protection in our lives. But sometimes things happen that drive us to our knees. Regardless of your current circumstances, below is a prayer for protection that I wrote on crosswalk recently.

Are you feeling exposed today? Seeking the kind of shelter described in Psalm 91? Run to the Father’s fortress with these words on your lips and in your heart, knowing that God will stand guard over any area of your life you surrender to Him. Will you pray with me now for his divine protection?

You can read the rest of this prayer here on crosswalk. Read more

In times of disaster, natural or otherwise, maybe you struggle with why’s or how to help. Some arrive in the center of the storm, ready to pluck victims from death’s reach. Others use hands, feet, boats, cars, or planes for rescue. So many send food, water, clothing—anything and everything that is needed in the aftermath of a disaster. But any of us—all of us—can give something. And we can all pray. Whether you are a victim or concerned Christian, pray in your own way.

Prayer for peace is something we all want and need. And while we all crave different kinds of peace, perhaps one that we all struggle with most from time to time is inner peace–peace within. If so, today’s blog is for you. While I always encourage you to pray your own prayer, perhaps these thoughts will be helpful to you. It’s yet another one in a series of helpful prayers I’ve been sharing with you for a few weeks.

Is your heart troubled? Are you feeling like the psalmist, who asked his own soul, “Why are you in despair? And why have you become disturbed within me?” One of the hardest parts of knowing peace is understanding how it has nothing to do with control. If you’re having trouble with trust or finding the words to pray above the howling of the scary storms, feel free to offer up these words to the Lord now! Read more
