Grace and Peace from God our Father

In 2014 I preached a two part series on the prayers of Paul. I don’t know if I preached it well but it was one of those sermons which had a major impact on my own life and how I pray. If you look at Paul’s letters, you will find that he followed closely to […]

The Dreamer’s Pain

There must be a thousand blogs written to help one discover and live out their dreams. I guess my blog is one of those. We serve a God who gives us dreams which are often glimpses into a future he has ordained for us. Sometimes the dream for the future is given through a promise […]
