Isolation keeps you from being hurt, but it also keeps you from the grace of God that redeems the pain and instructs in wisdom from it.

If you have a heart for teenagers, I'd like to invite you to pray for us this weekend as we put on the Elijah Revolution Conference in Detroit, MI. We long to see teens connect with the love of Jesus and His incomparable worth.

Random: "Rock, Water, Hoover Dam" is way more logical than "Rock, Paper, Scissors" - in my opinion.

I love that the little brother (my son) misses the big sister (Riley, away at camp) and is giddy about her coming home tomorrow night. He can't stop talking about it. That's a dynamic not often witnessed in many families; even if it was, it would still be precious to me.

On Facebook, I wrote simply that, "the future of our nation will be determined by prayer, not politics." I thought that this comment would be a simple reminder of where we stand as "one nation, under God" and a great way to summarize the impact of this past weekend as a template for how we move forward as a nation.

Of course, a bunch of folks agreed with the statement. Surprisingly, a few felt the need to add their perspective - that servanthood was necessary, or the gospel had to be included, or that no, we must have righteous leaders...and what was the revolutionary war all about, anyways? I find this interesting.

There is something about the weakness of prayer that is difficult for us to abide by at times.

The need to act - or, at least, the compulsive need to remind the prayer folks that action is necessary - is an unavoidable reflexive response that one must prepare themselves for when they decide to make it a habit to talk about prayer. There is a real fear somewhere within the heart of some believers that a response to a call to prayer will lead to a life of continual inactivity, resembling an agressive retreat from global and interpersonal engagement. I have not personally witnessed this phenomenon, but it must be transpiring somewhere.

Rest assured - there is no pursuit more likely to lead one to an exhausting life of action and global engagement than a life of focused, consistent prayer.

Back from Houston, honored to run with the company I run with. It's sweet to spend the weekend with godly leaders, teens, and young adults ministering together to the next generation.

I'll know that I've actually graduated into adopting Google+ for real when I stop talking about Google+ and actually just "talk".
