God Doesn’t Need Our Prayers But He Uses Them Mightily

Mark Altrogge:

If you are born again, God has declared you righteous in Christ. Therefore when you pray, God hears and acts.

Sometimes he doesn’t answer right away, or exactly the way we’d like, but he answers.

Especially when it comes to salvation. God says he does not desire any to perish but all to come to the knowledge of the truth. It’s clearly God’s will to save. So if you are praying for a loved one’s salvation, believe God is using your prayer mightily.

The book has been promoted by Glenn Beck (who wrote the foreword), and Kirk Cameron featured Barton in his documentary Monumental.

Dealing with Prima Donnas

If you are involved with leading people in any capacity for any length of time, you will undoubtedly come across someone who has tendencies which aren’t – shall we say – conducive to team-building and cooperation.

Artists certainly have a reputation for prima donna personalities. So if you’re a worship leader or lead artists of any kind, you should spend some time thinking through a strategy for dealing with prima donnas in your midst.
