Prayer: How to Dive into the Depths thru Ask, Seek, Knock

We recap our teaching on prayer and then delve into something seldom if ever taught: how to dive into the depths of prayer. So much teaching is just the beginning of prayer… or how to get prayers answered…or why they are not answered. We covered all of that quickly (rather than bit by bit at great length which is done elsewhere.) Today, similarly, we cover a lot of ground: how to go deep with God. Ask, seek, and knock follow the pattern of the Outer Court, the Holy Place and even the Holiest of Holies. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, His courts with praise. And wow! you will be awed and heavily impressed by the glory of God. It is time to recognize God’s greatness, holiness, awesomeness. The amazing thing is that we are invited.

Call to Arms for Parents and Educators

We have all seen the reality of the dark side. Today we unpack a Christian’s response, particularly for our children and their education. Primarily it is a spiritual battle. The trick of the enemy is to make us like him, like a devil. So “fighting evil” is itself a trap. Scripture, however, tells us exactly how to go forward in victory. We unpack 2 Timothy 3.

Here is Help for Trauma – New Method Especially Helps Children

Dr. Lendell Braud, Ph.D. has a scientifically tested but fun way to help people with trauma, especially children. Whyen she discovered that many of the children she was working with had learning disabilities, she innovated a new form of therapy, using visual imagery –rather than talk therapy. It turned out that the visual images worked very well. Since then, Dr. Braud has offered many scientific papers on this new method. This advance is very hopeful not only for so many children who are traumatized but also for many people who have not found help in the usual talk therapy. She had many years of experience with children especially, has had a career teaching at the university level, and has contributed to scientific knowledge. Today she talks with us on a level that anyone can understand and make use of.

For more information, please go to her new website:

If you are interested in contacting her for counseling, she is available in Conroe, Texas. If you are a counselor/therapist and would like to be trained in her method, please contact her at 936-447-4404 to join her list so she can let you know when/where she will next be offering a training in her method.

Founders: Don’t trade our ideas for wild theories of crazy projections (!)

Noah Webster (1758-1843). famous as “America’s Schoolmaster” spoke on July 4th 1798. He said the following.

Twenty and two years are completed since the fathers of our empire – appealing to God and the impartial world for the purity of their motives — rent asunder the ands that connected the English colonies with their Mother Country and declared them an INDEPENDENT NATION…

To a man who believes in the superintendence of Divine Providence over the affairs of this globe, the settlement of American by a civilized people and the establishment of a free government unfold a most splendid and consoling prospect. Secluded as America has been from a knowledge of the Europeans till a late period of the world may we not consider it as reserved by Heaven for the theater of important events or as the asylum of persecuted freedom and religion?

After Europe shall have been scourged with the despotism in every shape — the despotism of kings and of mobs, of hierarchies, of atheists, of visionary theorists, of armies by land and pirates by seas – after the half of her people have been sacrificed to the ambition of men under the different covers of crowns and liberty caps — the survivors, weary of eternal discord, of error, of faction, of the persecution of princes and private clubs, of war, assassination, and personal danger (the inevitable fruits of atheism and chimerical systems of government) will recover from their delusion and seek a shelter from their miseries under well tempered forms of government analogous to that of the United Stated, and under the benign influence of that rational system of religion which is the only sure basis of private happiness and public prosperity.

May the illustrious example of the conductors of the American Revolution be sacred to imitation in every period of our history!

Never, my fellow citizens, let us exchange our civil and religious institution for the wild theories of crazy projectors — or the sober, industrious, moral habits of our country for experiments in atheism and lawless democracy…
