Affirming Words from the Author of Life

by All Things New Prayer Ministry

The affirmation of our heavenly Father is powerful because he is the Author of Life.  All that we are derives from our Maker. His words, spoken to us, continue the formative process of who we are as his creatures. We each are a small part of God’s story, written into it at a particular point […]

Come to Me in the Word

by All Things New Prayer Ministry

Thirteen years ago, in May of 2008, I opened a new journal, took a pen and wrote, Genesis 1:1-8. Despite identifying myself as a person of faith, I had not been regularly reading the Word for over 25 years. I became a Christian when I was four, grew up involved in an evangelical church, counselled […]

There is Love in the Ink

by All Things New Prayer Ministry

So, when did this “listening to God” thing start for me, anyway?  It was in my late teens and early twenties that I began to follow God in earnest.  I couldn’t get enough of His word.  My Dad had passed away when I was young, so when I read, “I have called you by name, […]

The Power of Words

by All Things New Prayer Ministry

Language matters.  Words matter.  They can convey both the simplest and most complex of notions.  Through words we can have understanding or misunderstanding of others.  They can be wielded as a tool or a torture.  The concept of words has been on my mind a lot lately.   I awoke the day of the time change […]

The Lord Takes Pleasure in his People

by All Things New Prayer Ministry

Sometimes God uses the physical things of this world to teach us spiritual truths.  In this story, He used the rocks on the shore of Lake Superior to teach me about His heart.  Recently, while camping on the North Shore, we met our friends on the beach for a worship service.  Surrounded by the beauty […]

Trust God in the Crucible

by All Things New Prayer Ministry

I’m thankful that these prayer clinics can continue  – because I know from first-hand experience how precious it is when we intentionally come into the presence of Jesus, and we invite him to meet us right where we are.   It is in His presence that healing comes. I want to tell you a little of […]

Children of the One True King

by All Things New Prayer Ministry

For me to even dare to stand before you, I have to remember who I am. I am a child of God, of Jesus, the Christ, the one true King. In Him I can do all the things He asks me to do. My focus today is on the phrase, “I have been set free.” […]


by All Things New Prayer Ministry

What do a broken arm, a tree along the North Shore, and the French Resistance during World War II have in common?  That is actually not a joke and there is not a punchline coming—these are all things that the Lord used over my summer to prepare me for what the fall would bring. In […]

Do you want to get well?

Last August, my husband and I reveled in two quiet weeks away from the hubbub of our busy household and the pressures of work at a secluded and beautiful farm.  There was time for walking, napping, talking and reading.  It was glorious.  But In the midst of this idyllic getaway, I started to notice little thoughts of worry […]

Healing Journey

God created us to live in securely bonded relationships and families.  We are conceived in relationship, and we grow and develop in relationship.  When we experience relational disconnection and separation, or rupture, we feel emotional pain. This pain (or its side effects) is there to let us know something is wrong — in the present, […]
