Over this past year God has been speaking to me a lot about prayer and just how important it is. Even at the start of the year, the words ‘prayer warrior’ and ‘intercessor’ always invoked for me the image of a group of elderly women gathered together in a room once a week or so and praying because that’s literally all they can offer God’s kingdom. So when God began to speak to me about wanting to grow me in the areas of prayer and intercession, I got really offended. I’m twenty seven years old, not eighty seven and I wanted God to use me in an area that would actually help the great commission.
If people ever commented that I seemed to have a strong prayer life and that I had a gift in that area, I honestly took it as an insult. I wanted a cooler gift like being able to lead a room in worship or give out amazing words of knowledge to others. Gifts that in my mind, actually helped bring people closer to God. There have been countless times when I have acknowledged the power of prayer, yet deep down in my heart I didn’t really think it could make much of a difference, particularly coming from someone who is soft spoken and more often than not, lacking in eloquence.

Freely Given, Freely Give

By Taylor Phillips on September 10, 2020 12:31:01 PM NZST

When I first was introduced into missions, I was very turned off by the idea of having to raise my own money. Who does that? That was not the way I was raised or the type of job I went to college for. I have a college degree and plenty of work experience. But, when I thought about it there was a deeper-rooted issue of independence. I thought that my way of earning money was better because I could do it, and I could control every step of the way: where I worked, how much I earned, how much I was able to give away, and what I bought. But that is not God’s heart for me. I had to give up every concept of earning that I was taught from a young age

How I Got $8K for my DTS in 2 Weeks

By Anna Martin on August 31, 2020 3:20:50 PM NZST

My senior year of high school I decided to take a gap year after graduation and really focus on deepening my relationship with God. I applied for the backpackers DTS and began the process of fundraising, planning and getting excited for the journey ahead of me! I did support letters, spoke at church, sent emails, Facebook posts, and after awhile I started losing hope. The money wasn’t coming in. I was confused and my self doubt was growing- I remember thinking “Okay God, you said DTS. Why isn’t this happening?”

The Right Decision: College or Gap Year?

By MiCaela Grzelak on May 21, 2020 5:34:25 PM NZST

'What if it’s the wrong choice?'
'What if I’m actually supposed to go to college?'
'What if my gap year becomes a waste of time or money?'

We so often find ourselves getting caught up in what is the right answer - what does God want me to do? Sometimes we feel like we can’t hear his voice; we get confused and have no idea what decision to make.

The Insanity of God - Bible Devotional

By Alec Kemper on April 22, 2020 8:00:00 AM NZST

Revelation 15:2-4 (ESV)

2 And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire—and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands. 3 And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,

“Great and amazing are your deeds,

    O Lord God the Almighty!

Just and true are your ways,

    O King of the nations!

4 Who will not fear, O Lord,

    and glorify your name?

For you alone are holy.

    All nations will come

    and worship you,

for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
