Prayers Offered in Faith – Praises

By Melissa Teten I sat in a room full of veteran Navigator staff with adult children. As they shared their personal prayer requests, so many were centered on their children. Incarceration, mental illness, addiction, etc. Ugh. My heart sank as I considered how weary these friends were with sorrow over their children. And my heart sank further still as I realized that my need for Jesus … Continue reading Prayers Offered in Faith – Praises

Fostering a Love for the Lord in our Kids

Fellowship

I turned on the news recently and there was a story about a fourth grader who had just won the National Spelling Bee.

Mommy Missionaries as Prayer Warriors

By Joy Maschhoff Every mommy missionary wears many hats: nurturer, caretaker, doctor, superhero, teacher, therapist, chef, scientist, specialist in the cleanup of infectious diseases…we all know the list goes on and on. What a privilege and a calling. Life as a mommy missionary in the Caribbean has honed my skills in the wearing of this crucial hat: soldier/warrior. The Caribbean is a hotbed for religious … Continue reading Mommy Missionaries as Prayer Warriors

I Know Less Now: Lessons from Lorne Sanny on Prayer

During my first year on staff (1996!) with The Navigator’s Eagle Lake Camp, we did a Bible study as a staff team on prayer. We spent months studying the scriptures together on the topic and as a type of capstone event, we invited Lorne Sanny to come and speak to our group. I had already had the privilege of hearing Mr. Sanny speak a few … Continue reading I Know Less Now: Lessons from Lorne Sanny on Prayer
