Very needed According to a recent survey, Reformed pastors only pray for an average of 5 minutes a day. If this is true,it is absolutely heartbreaking. And it explains why we are not seeing more repentance and more conversions. May God give us men of prayer, i.e. may He give us men who have been broken before the cross.
Powerful Thank you so much for this interview Pastor Swanson. I had never heard of this man or this book before. I wish that every pastor and every missions board and every Christian would listen to this and would pray asking God how to apply some of the lessons from this man's work to our own lives. I'm going to order the book and find out more about the powerful work God has done through a willing vessel.
Guilty churches Shame on most of us Christians who do so little to speak out about this horrendous national sin. God is judging us now and it will likely get much worse until we repent and beg for His forgiveness and start standing up for children in the womb. You are so right, Pastor, when you say that we care more about animals than about children. May God wake us up from our stupor.
Carl I am praying for you. I've been there. I know the temptation. But please continue to cry out to God. And also ask someone you trust to pray with you. "I am exceedingly afflicted. Revive me, O LORD,according to your word" Ps 119:107 "This is my comfort in my affliction, that Your word has revived me." Ps 119:50 Psalm 119 has been a great comfort to me in times of despair. Please remember that Jesus Christ loves you and is interceding for you. Let Him fight your battles and rest in Him. Please don't give up.
