Grounding Your Prayers

Morning Thought: Base your prayers on God’s character. In Psalm 86 David faces the pressing attack of arrogant foes. But instead of focusing on the enemy, he sees his God, grounding his prayers on God’s character. The Lord’s attributes and nature make a strong foundation for effective praying. “But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to me and have mercy on me; show your strength in behalf of your servant” (Ps 86:15-16a).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (https://www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (https://www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
