More Vital than Life

Morning Thought: Daniel was threatened with death if he prayed and worshiped God. Yet, prayer and worship was so important that he defied the king’s decree. Today, we may have reasoned to pray silently and secretly. Daniel was different. He swung open his windows and was not ashamed to pray three times a day. All saw and it meant he was thrown into the lion’s den. But God was stronger and delivered him. Prayer is more vital than life itself. Why? Because it connects you to the source of life, the Living God. “Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before” (‭‭Daniel‬ ‭6:10‬, ‭NIV‬‬).

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 ( We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School ( 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).
