How to pray extraordinary prayers

Posted on Updated on

Today a new article appeared on the website of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.  As we approach May 4, the National Day of Prayer, I had the opportunity to write a brief blog post on prayer.  Hope it encourages you to take the initiative to become bolder and more imaginative in how to trust the Lord in your prayer life!

Resurrecting

Posted on Updated on

Resurrecting KingLeaving a godly legacy…what a glorious part of our calling to follow Christ!  As a dad, I understand what it feels like to see your kids investing themselves in the work of the kingdom.  In this worship video, my young friend Mack Brock, son of my long-time ministry buddy, Don Brock, points an arena of worshipers to the resurrected King of Glory!

In his worship leader role with Elevate Worship, Mack influences thousands each week in live settings to worship the Lord Jesus.  Then, through videos like this one, millions more bow down to the King and join their voices in praise.  As of this posting, over 7 million people have viewed this video!

I am so thankful to have known Mack since he was a very little boy.  Now I get to join his parents with delight watch the Lord use him in a powerful way!  Praise God for this talented, Christ-centered and committed young man!  And thank you Don and Mary for growing him up in the Lord!!

Note:  You may have to skip over an ad at the beginning to get right to the video!

A Day Trip to the NC Zoo

Posted on Updated on

DSC_0778Monday was a perfect day to visit the NC Zoo near Asheboro!  Thousands of students on Spring Break agreed.  Not only was the weather a delight but the animals seem to have made a unanimous decision to make appearances (except for the black bear)!  Never have I been to a zoo when all the animals were out and active!

Take a look at a sampling of the photos from the trip.
