Why Doesn’t God Answer My Prayers? – “Many people have wondered why our all-powerful and loving God doesn’t answer the prayers of His people.” We have all wondered it at one time or another. This article provides a helpful take on it.

How Can It Be – You’re treading on sacred ground when you add to or take away from a hymn as well-loved as “And Can It Be.” But this version from The Falls Anglican is pretty good. It’s also a free download.

Grace Sharjah – Just over a year ago I was in Dubai visiting a couple of churches in Dubai and heard about their desire to plant new churches. Grace Sharjah is their new church plant in Sharjah and it launches on Friday. Any time a new church begins in the Middle East, it’s worth praising God for and worth praying for.

Don’t Give My Husband Romance Lessons – I got a chuckle out of this: “I am not an overly romantic person, and that’s good, because my husband isn’t the type, either. And that’s okay with us. If he was to sit down, at candlelight, look into my eyes, and recite poetry, we’d both end up laughing. We love candlelight, but we have never been what I would call romance lovers.”

Credo Magazine – The newest issue of Credo magazine looks deep into the great doctrine of justification. Contributors include Thomas Schreiner, Michael Allen, Michael Horton, Philip Ryken and others.

Babies Are Murdered Here – This new documentary on abortion is worth watching (though I am not crazy about the too-close link between Old Testament Israel and contemporary America). About You is another reflective look at abortion.

This Beautiful World – These photos highlight just a little bit of the beauty of this earth.

True Christian prayer is the faith and reliance of the soul breathed forth in words. —Jonathan Edwards
