Repentance

Ben Foust
Psalms 51:1-19

Psalm 51 shows us that no matter how far we stray from God, we can turn to Him in repentance and be forgiven. This is possible because of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. 

Pray Your Fears

Ben Foust
Psalms 27:1-14

Because of God's knowledge and power, He is capable of handling our fears. Psalm 27 shows us how to give our fears over to God instead of remaining paralyzed by our own anxieties. 

David a Man After God's Heart?

James Rochford
2 Samuel 23

In spite of David's grievous sins, he was still considered a man after God's heart. He knew how to talk honestly with God. He pointed people to God. He understood and accepted God's grace.

Praying for Your Children

Patrice McCormac
2 Samuel 23

Patrice McCormac talks about challenges to praying for our children and how to overcome these various hurdles.

'Pestering' God

Lee Campbell
Luke 18:1-8

Patrice McCormac

It is a choice we make to see God at work in the midst of our circumstances. Second, we are to pray without ceasing. We are to have an ongoing conversation with God throughout the day. Third, we must give thanks in everything, but not for everything. We have only to look at the cross to see our source of thankfulness.

The Dawn of a New Era

Scott Risley
1 Samuel 1-3

As the time of the Judges comes to a close, Hannah, a faithful servant of the Lord, as promised, offers her only child, Samuel, to the Lord to be His servant. Eli, an unfaithful priest, was unwilling to discipline his sons or show tough love. Samuel, when God calls, answers with, "Here I am!"
