The Essence of Prayer

Morning Thought: Prayer is not primarily about asking God for things, it’s about listening to him. Cultivate a quiet spirit that drinks in God’s Word. Then, respond back with your words to him. “As you enter the house of God, keep your ears open and your mouth shut…Don’t make rash promises, and don’t be hasty in bringing matters before God. After all, God is in heaven, and you are here on earth. So let your words be few” ‭‭(Ecclesiastes‬ ‭5:1-2‬, ‭NLT).‬‬

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted a church and Bible School. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (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).
