We just got back from a Prayer Summit. When I was told that Richard Owen Roberts was going to be the speaker, my initial thought was “who’s that?” followed by “I wonder how well he will speak.”
I am far too judgmental in my nature. So whenever I hear of an elderly man who is going to preach, I brace myself. For too many times they have lost their first love, and go after things they would prefer to keep out of the church.
But when Roberts spoke it became very clear, very quickly, that his first love was pale when compared to his current love. That his passion was not the music in the church, the dress in the church, or any other cosmetic issue. He shared with us his burden for the lack of holiness. The lack of prayer. The lack of passion.
He revealed to me so many scriptural truths in such a short time that my mind is spinning. I have not been this excited in such a long time.
I have yet to chew on the cud of this weekend, but I don’t think I will find anything disagreeable with what he taught. I have been challenged and changed.
The Prayer Summit was awesome!
Spending time with our pastors and worship team was a lot of fun. And when I spoke it lasted an amazing 23 minutes.
Looking forward to the next one. There are not many things worth going to above a prayer meeting.
The video was released to the subscribers of Nation Pains a couple days ago. In 2 more days it will be made public.
The laptop fund is complete. A huge thank-you to WoodyC, my brother Josh and sister in law Manda, and of course to my parants. DrewP and a few others will help me pick out a good one. Whoever thought Toshiba vs. Dell vs. HP vs. Gateway was such an issue? *sigh*
I get to be in a play Saturday. Hopefuly by then my brain will stop leaking out of my nose. Oh how I hate being sick.
People may argue that illness is a sign of how “poorly designed” the human body is. But I don’t even want to think about what would happen to us if our nose didn’t run, our muscles didn’t ache, or etc.
God is good, Amen?
God is good, amen?
I have been sitting here at church in panic. I set this day apart to prepare for the Prayer Summit, and nothing was comming to me. Until about an hour ago. All of a sudden the verse I was to speak on made perfect sense, and what I was to say about it became clear.
Here is a video of a favorite comedian of mine. He is from a cleaner generation, and has a message I think is valuable.
Let us never forget where we come from. Let us always care about where we are going.
There is a Prayer Summit coming up. It’s the 26th of this month.
I have been asked to speak there, and of course I am terrified. Maybe some day I will get over it. Maybe I won’t.
Either way I have to get ready, starting with this weekend.
It seams as though all of the speakers have been asked to use a subject concerning “Eternity.” That’s a tricky subject.
I have never been to or experienced eternity. I’ve not even been alive for 2 decades. *sigh*
Thankfully what I am speaking on has nothing to do with eternity itself.
I wanted to post another video today, but decided I have too many on the front page already. Maybe next time.

I was shocked by the response to this video. I expected it to be a hobby video of mine and no more. I had no idea there would be an interest in public display.
