Powerful prayer: The greatest pastor appreciation gift

On Oct. 14, many churches observe Pastor Appreciation Sunday. Today’s leaders face spiritual attacks and pressures like few previous generations.

Powerful prayer: Living and praying in the power

According to Scripture, believers can do nothing without the fullness and power of God’s Spirit. (Acts 1:8; John 15:5; Eph. 5:18) Without God’s fullness, prayers are weak, ministries are ineffective, and evangelism un-empowered. Yet sadly, many believers confess they have an inadequate grasp of daily fullness and power. In fact, some saints are even a bit fearful to seek spiritual fullness. They are wary of the excesses fostered by...
