Intentional Prayers.

Nehemiah is an inspirational man (and book!)
Check out his prayer here – Nehemiah 1:5-11 (

Nehemiah asks God to “be open and attentive to hear the prayer your servant is praying.”

Nehemiah outlines some of God’s works and character qualities. He knows God well and has great faith to ask with such boldness!

Are there bold prayers you need to pray?

How about slowly reading these verses, paying attention to Nehemiah’s descriptions of God. We can grow to know God better by doing this. Praying His word back to Him is also faith-building!

What ‘project’ will you pray for God’s favour in?


It’s okay #covid19

How are you guys doing?

We’re living in unprecedented times. I asked my parents if they’ve experienced anything like this in their lives, and they haven’t. We’re living through history here. I want to remind you that through this all, it’s okay to feel what you’re feeling. Scared, confused, anxious. Maybe you’re bored, lonely and frustrated. Maybe you’re even happy, relieved for the time to take it slow.

No matter where you are, know it’s okay and you’re not alone. Reach out to God: He wants to sit with you – now is the time to do it!


Beauty from mess

You don’t have to have lived very long to know our planet is seriously messed up. People and places and the way life rolls – it all reminds us daily that sin broke the world and we’re a mess. If that were the end of the story, there would be no hope, and no point to living.

BUT GOD! Listen to David’s song of gratitude and confidence in a good and perfect God who makes life worth living: ‘God’s way is perfect. All the LORD’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.’ (Psalm 18:30). That’s good news!



Ever been lonely in a crowd? Surrounded by noise and people and activity – but feeling lost, alone, insecure? That’s how Moses felt, leading God’s people towards the Promised Land. He had a big, important job to do. He was man of the moment! Yet he felt lonely and afraid. He desperately needed the encouragement and assurance of God’s presence.

He cried out to God, and God so kindly replied: ‘I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you resteverything will be fine for you.’ (Exodus 33:14)

Alone or in a crowd, your God is with you every moment.
