5 Minutes With Pastor Lutzer | God and the Nations Part 1

In this new series, titled, “God and the Nations” we apply Jeremiah 29 to our current times and discuss what it would look like to seek the welfare of the United States and pray to the Lord on it’s behalf. In this episode, we use the prayer from Daniel 9 as a guide to approach God’s throne with both desperation and humility in the midst of uncertain times. Here are all of the ways that you can follow along with 5 Minutes With Pastor Lutzer: On our Podcast via iTunes and Google Play On our Facebook page On our YouTube channel Transcript: Welcome … Read More >

How to Pray for Paris

Paris. Perhaps, like me, you have been struggling, wondering exactly how we should pray for Paris at this time of sorrow and unanswered questions. Although we might think that these Islamic attacks would motivate the French to seek God and hopefully turn to Christ, most are driven in the opposite direction, angry with anything associated with religion. The French see what religion has done to their country over the centuries; the religion of Islam inspired the recent terrorist attacks, but the wars of religion in previous eras have driven France to accept a radical form of secularism, a dogged commitment … Read More >

A Transforming Prayer to Grasp the Implications of Our Identification with Jesus Christ

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”– Galatians 2:20 The changes God makes in our lives after our conversion are profound and lasting; God does a deep work that rituals cannot perform. Consider this: God so profoundly put us into Jesus—in a legal way—that His history becomes our history. We were crucified with Him, and we were “raised with Him” (Romans 6:5). This … Read More >

A Prayer that We Might Give Thanks to God for His Eternal and Glorious Victory in Which We Shall Participate

Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.” And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying, ‘We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, for you have taken your great power and begun to reign. The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to … Read More >

A Prayer to Draw Near to God with Confidence that We are Being Received and Heard

Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience…”—Hebrews 10:19-22 When Old Testament High Priests entered the Holy Place and went behind the curtain into the Holy … Read More >

The One Resolution We Should Make—and Keep!

As we enter 2017, millions of us will be making New Year’s resolutions that we will probably break before the end of January. Some promise themselves to lose weight, to exercise more, or to break a stubborn habit. Others, weary of broken promises, won’t make any resolutions at all. But there is one resolution we all should make: that we will not begin a single day in the New Year without giving ourselves to God, meditating on one chapter of God’s Word, and praying “Father, glorify yourself in my life today at my expense.” For years I’ve been praying that … Read More >

A Prayer for Faithfulness in Suffering

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us…but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.”—Romans 8:18, 23 Our suffering is a challenge to our faith. After all, we think if God loved us, He’d remove the obstacles that bring us so much anguish and pain. Most of us aren’t good at suffering. The German theologian Helmut Thielicke observed, “Americans don’t know how to suffer. They consider … Read More >

A Prayer that We, Being Gripped by the Reality of Both Hell and Heaven, Would Make Sure of our Personal Salvation

And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”—Revelation 20:15 “And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.”—Revelation 22:5    The contrast between an eternal hell and an eternal heaven could not be more vivid, more motivating and above all, more frightening. When I read these passages, I ask myself: where are the people who are too good to go to hell, but not good … Read More >

A Prayer that We Might be Motivated to Live in Anticipation of the Lord’s Return

Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen.”—Revelation 1:7 “Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn!”—2 Peter 3:11,12 The purpose of prophecy is not … Read More >
