Moving Mountains - Session 6: Warfare Prayer

In this Moving Mountains video study, John Eldredge shows how we labor under the misconception that prayer is asking God to intervene instead of partnering with him to get things done. This faulty assumption leads to untold confusion and grief when we ask of God but can't sense He hears us--or even cares. Rather, Jesus says, "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven" (Matthew 16:19).

Love & War - Session 06: Storm Clouds

When crisis hits and something shakes us to our foundation, we all start grasping, clutching, looking for someone to blame or some place to hold on. Like people do when they’re drowning. Panic overcomes us; we rush to blame or speculation or a box of doughnuts. Before you make another move, you need to ask yourself: Why is it hard right now?  Don’t jump to conclusions. Your interpretation of what’s going on will shape everything that follows—your emotions, your perspective, and your decisions.
