Prayer Motives

James 4:3 And even when you do ask, you don’t get it because your whole motive is wrong - you want only what will give you pleasure. - N.L.T.  

It is imperative that you pray in the will of God, otherwise you could be asking for things that could be harmful. You may also be coveting something that is not His will. Picture in your mind that a ship is entering a harbor late at night. 

On the shore are four green lights that the ship must line up with. If the pilot steers his ship in a straight line toward the four lights he will not hit the rocks. You have four things that you can look at to determine the will of God which are:  1. The Word of God. 2. The guidance of the Holy Spirit.  3. Circumstances. 4. Timing.  

Before you pray for something, it is better to ask the Lord what His will is for that item. Sometimes He doesn’t want your plan, because He has a far better one for you.

Jesus and Faith

When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”  “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go your way to your house.”   

Once a man was brought to Jesus by four friends. Since the crowd was too big, his friends took off some tiles on the roof and let the man down. He was too sick to use his faith, so Jesus honored their faith. 

The man still was not qualified to receive healing because of his relationship with God, so Jesus took care of that problem first. Once his sins were taken care of, he was completely healed, see Mark 2:10-12. There may be times in your own life when you are too ill to believe for healing. 

Find someone who knows how to pray, believing for you. Make sure there are no hindrances in your life, by asking the Lord for forgiveness that would stop your healing. Expect the Lord to honor your friend’s faith for your total victory.

The God That Heals

A wonderful book that gives the keys to finding restoration in one’s soul that brings a transformed life, and in turn transformed relationships through forgiveness. Readers will find that broken relationships can be repaired. A CBM Book ReviewS 10.0 out of 10.0

Steven D. Griffin releases The Victim’s Cry: Discovering Hope & Healing Through Forgiveness, An encouraging book that exposes truth from a Christian perspective to help readers find lasting healing and freedom from past offenses, pain and unforgiveness. As the author presents steps to dealing with past offenses, disappointment and deep bitterness, the author writes from his own journey after separation in his own marriage. Offering Biblical knowledge, and additionally sharing some of the reasons why we suffer in this world, the author writes a concise, yet simple book to discover hope and healing through the power of Christ. 

Full of Scripture and Biblical insights on the issues of forgiveness, heart attitudes and judgments are examined that presents to readers refreshment to the soul, giving them practical solutions to seek after God and His plan for healing. 

Readers will also learn from the Introduction that the book is a God-birthed book written from someone who has experienced God’s plan of restoration. As the author highlights this statement from the Lord, “I want you to write a book about My plan of rescue for people who have been hurt. 

Many of my people are bound up, and I will use this book to help set them free.” The author offers hope to those who feel like victims. What is quite unique is that he begins with the definition of a victim. As it turns out, we all have been victims at one time or another. With heartfelt compassion, the author’s hope and prayer in reading this book is that individuals will find lasting freedom in Christ and come to an understanding that they are more than conquerors in Christ. 

Divided into 5 Open and Shut Steps to Freedom, such issues as selfishness, bitterness, anger, hatred, judgments address heart attitudes that help readers identify these feelings and emotions, turning to God for help. Once identified through a godly lens, the truth of God’s Word is applied and a renewing of the mind begins, refreshing and cleansing the troubled heart and emotions. 

I cannot recommend this book enough, in that it gives the Biblical steps to finding restoration in relationships and helps readers take a look at their own heart, inspiring them to look up to God. Reading this book also produce godly character by presenting to readers a practical application of God’s Word. Freedom will be found if the steps are applied and the person submits to God. Increased intimacy with Christ will also be developed and lasting peace, love and joy will be found as people are set free.

Highly recommended for anyone that needs encouragement, understanding and hope to issues that have caused strife, division and separation within their life.  For those struggling with anger, resentment, depression and unforgiveness, this book will help those individuals release these feelings and find relief. I have to say to the author, “Thank You,” for hearing from God and having the courage to follow through. His testimony of how he clearly heard from God and obeyed is inspiring!

This is a well-balanced read that points to the Bible as the authorative source as to how to live our lives. Divorce is common, but the author warns that this is not the plan of God for married couples. 

The author gives scriptural advice that can help people smooth out such issues as communication, agreement, submission and authority in a marriage, as well as giving a foundational read on the covenant of marriage.

Divorce & Re-marry: Is Man’s Alternative Not God’s Plan by Anthony Onochie Akpati discusses God’s plan on the subject of marriage, divorce and re-marriage. With a dual approach, his book addresses God’s original intent for man in marriage and addresses many practical conflict resolutions that offer solutions, roles and accountability to each other and the Word of God.

Adding that the Church today has a divorce rate over 50%, it is clear, Christians are not exempt from facing divorce. Giving the readers a Biblical platform and view, the author lays out a plan that is much different than the world’s. The world advocates divorce and re-marrying, even in a repeat fashion. As Christians and children of God, the author mentions that we live in the world, but are not of the world as the Scriptures states. With honesty and integrity, the author helps people understand the causes for divorce and offers real solutions for real problems experienced by real people.

A CBM Book Review

This book comes highly recommended for couples that are in trouble and considering divorce. Pastors and marriage counselors might also consider having this read in their library to offer to clients. His perspective on accountability on each partner is practical and Biblical.

Fear Factor

Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?  

Fear can tear down or control you in direct proportion to the problems that come your way. Fear does not have a claim over you. Faith will be built up in your life as you remove fear from your spirit. Fear is the opposite of faith. 

Both are released by expecting something you can’t see. Faith comes from seeing the Word. Fear comes from seeing the problem. Faith is released by the words of your mouth. Fear is also released by the words of your mouth. 

Focus on the answer to the problem, rather than on the problem. When you quote Scripture you are resisting the enemy who is tempting you with a spirit of fear. The more Scripture you quote to the enemy, the more pain you inflict on the satanic forces. The Lord wants to give you total victory over fear, which will be possible as you spend time studying the Scriptures.

The Holy Spirit At Work

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.  

A battle starts to take place in your mind as soon as you become a Christian, because the enemy wants to get back what he has lost. The Holy Spirit wants to keep what has been accom­plished. The satanic forces will put thoughts into your mind that are contrary to what the Lord wants you to think. You have to decide whose thoughts you are going to accept. 

The mind of each one of us has a controlling factor, which is the spirit of the mind, and must also be renewed by the power of the Holy Spirit, see Ephesians 4:22-32. God wants to renew your mind, to remove the contamination that could have filtered in by being in contact with the world. Allow yourself to be “washed” in the Word daily. The closer you get to Him, the less of the world will stick.

Testing Our Faith

Here is a book that every new Christian should read,  Christian Basic Training by Craig TFeigh helps new and mature believers alike get back to the basics of their faith.  10.0 stars ~ CBM 

As Craig states, “Like fire tests gold and silver, God commands us to test ourselves daily (2 Corinthians 13:5) to be sure that our heart is right with Him and that we can defend and articulate our faith.  

Faith: Testing our faith is essentially getting back to the basics and building for ourselves a strong foundation.” This is the premise of this foundational book that will build faith, instruct believers in sound Biblical doctrine and provide a keen understanding of God, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

As a believer in Jesus Christ, one understands that decisions made here upon Earth have an effect on our eternity in heaven. In this book, Craig TFeigh reveals some alarming statistics of Americans polled in regards to their faith. An alarming 66% of the 89% Americans polled are not sure whether they will get to heaven or not. This makes it necessary for Christians to understand the basics of their faith and what the cross did for them.

In addition, the author reveals through scriptural interpretation your identity in Christ. This is a simple way to understand many of the questions you have about the Bible that gives not only firm scriptural truths, but gives a firm foundation to build upon. Whether just coming to Christ, or as a well-seasoned believer, the foundations never change and it almost guaranteed that readers will learn something in this book.

Created for individual use and within a group setting the author offers classes on Christian Basic Training and encourages all to understand the truth of God’s Word. This is a highly recommended read that covers a broad spectrum of the key foundational principles of the Christian faith that enlightens many facets of the Gospel in an easy-to-understand and fascinating read. You may get your copy of Christian Basic Training by Craig TFeigh at Amazon.

Overcoming Depression's Grip

Soul Doubt by Leo J. Battenhausen, as an author and psychotherapist, discusses the overwhelming and detrimental impact that depression and suicide are having upon society in the United States. 

Additionally stating  alarming statistics from the World Health Organization (2016) that suicide and depression are presently at an “epidemic high”. The author also adds that the organization’s prediction is that by 2020 depression will be the most diagnosed disease after heart disease. 

These facts, coupled with society’s views and attempts to “cure” depression with various treatments and drugs, bolster our culture that expresses itself as its own God. Selfishness, greed, media, government, and liberalism’s mantra have taken away from family and marriages like we have never seen before in the United States. 

With this in mind, the author makes an impressive statement – People need God and need to believe in God. With a focus on giving solutions to depression and suicide, intertwined with keen insight, he offers this book to help others recognize and be free in their souls from destructive thoughts and behaviors that are literally killing many.

Giving an overview of healthy parenting and relationships that include marriages, the author explores the human condition and the soul. Offering a laymen’s view of the soul, he explains the doubts we possess in relation to satisfying the deep void within. 

Despite technical advances in this information age, the author shares that we as humans are not developing as we should and have forgotten who we are. Advocating that parents invest in their children in meaningful ways, to include their parenting skills, he also exposes a spiritual side to the issue of the mind, soul and emotions. Offering readers an understanding of the realm of the soul, a secular worldview is also considered. His position is that we cannot ignore our souls, which is the essence of who we are.

Revealing what really wages war against our souls, will and emotions, the author has written a compassionate book that speaks frankly to believers and non-believers alike, sharing that there is hope and a solution to this soul problem. Well-balanced, informative, encouraging, his insight is an important work tackling the woes that plague our society, but more importantly offers real answers and hope that presents truth. The truth that God is real, and that we all need God, is something that the author will not compromise. Stating in his book description, “Soul Doubt breaks through with solution-focused answers and PROVEN ways to battle depression and suicide.”

Truthfully, this is a much-needed book in today’s society. As a skilled professional, he knows the human condition and speaks of the healing of the soul, mind and spirit. Presenting a wealth of knowledge, the spiritual battle, modern-psychology, the author offers real answers to those who are suffering or know someone who is suffering. This comes as a highly recommended must-read for all parents, married couples raising children, teens, young adults and newly married couples.

America’s Beginnings and The Bible


The Christian faith and the Bible

In America’s Founding Fathers and the Bible: A Select Study on America’s Christian Origin, Stephen A. Flick, Ph.D. shares America’s rich biblical history and Christian heritage. CBM Christian Book Reviews ~ 10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Focusing on the American Revolution and afterwards, the author writes that America was founded on Christian principles and biblical practices that our Founding Fathers instituted, stemming from the formation of our government and the Continental Congress. 

Unwaveringly the author also reveals contrary claims by secularists and irreligionists that America was founded and “arose from the barrenness of secularism,” give way to an intriguing book that gives insight into America’s beginnings, formation as a nation and the underlying Christian legacy of America as a nation.

Divided into three sections: The Continental Congress and the Bible, Three Founding Fathers on the Bible, After the American Revolution, Conclusion: American Renaissance and coupled with three Reading Sections -  Defense of the use of the Bible as a SchoolBook, President of Congress Starts Bible Society & By the Bible or By the Bayonet, the author sheds light on the legacy of freedom, commitment to the Christian faith and the Bible, that helps readers understand and presents a brief glimpse into the motivations and truths from which our Founding Fathers relied upon.

With this perspective in mind, this book also provides viewpoints propagated from American Academia, jurisprudence and other disciplines that seem to ignore the facts. Further giving an overview of the initial thirteen colonies that sparked America’s growth and the first decrees of fasts and thanksgivings originally declared, coupled with the ensuing American Revolution, the author shows that America is a country that is nationally based upon the Bible. As the author states,Rather, both private and public writings overwhelmingly demonstrate that America's Founding Fathers intended and did establish American government upon biblical principles and practices.” 

This simple, yet historically accurate read comes highly recommended to all Americans, Patriots, Christians, college students and to the general public that serves as a reminder to get back to the foundational principles our country was founded on. Knowing your heritage and history is important and this book presents a keen understanding of “how” our great nation came to be. 

Concise and to the point, factual information presents and relates the importance of the Christian faith and the Bible in America.  History’s past can be confusing, yet this book is one of those books every American should read, know and understand. It is our privilege, duty and honor to take a stand for what was so costly – our freedom.

Sins Forgotten

Romans 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.  

When you come to Jesus and ask Him to come into your life and make you a child of His, He does what you ask Him to. You have now become His child. 

The Holy Spirit, who caused you to come to the Lord in the first place, next bears witness with your spirit that you are a child of God. Thoughts that God rejected you, or you are not a child of His, doesn’t come from God, and must be resisted. 

The enemy may remind you of your past, telling you that you were very bad, but remind him of what the Word says. Isaiah 43:25 tells you, “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins.”  

Start rejoicing that you have been made a child of God, and His divine protection is over you. Expect the Lord to give you guidance, and to direct you all day.

The power of the Holy Spirit

Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, accord­ing to the power that works in us.  

Have you tried to overcome difficulties, but seem to remain trapped? It is necessary to replace the old vision in your mind, to one of victory the Lord has for you. God wants to give you a new vision for your faith to work from. 

This new inner image will show you that you are to be free from the problem that has affected you. The prospects of believing it will come to pass, will sometimes be more than you can think that God will supply. 

Expect the promise seen in Ephesians 3:20 to be fulfilled in your life. This power God has for you, is already flowing through you, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Raise your level of faith, then release the words the Holy Spirit wants you to say, which will cause the changes to take place. God is faithful, and will fulfill His Word in you.

Real Life accounts of Heaven

A highly recommended read for those that want to believe God for more, for the impossible and I guarantee you will read this through in one night! ~ CBM 

Miracles: Your Impossible is Possible! By Gary and LeeAnne Dyck give their accounts of God doing the miraculous in their lives and in the lives of others. From a returned earring to multiplied food, from angels transporting lost items back to the authors, to real-life accounts of Heaven, this book reveals realms, miracles and that God is in the business of doing miracles. 

First beginning with a little background on their upbringing, both husband and wife share how God has intervened, revealing that He cares about the little things, the big things and everything in between. The point of writing such a book is so that others would understand that they can believe God for miracles. Even the impossible!

This truly is an amazing book, to hear of such unbelievable miraculous things happening in the everyday life of two believers (and that of other believers and churches), not only stirs great faith, but shows how good our Heavenly Father is. 

These true accounts all come from the eye-witness accounts of the authors. As the book continues to reveal, there are many, even in the Church, that just don’t believe in the miracles after they happen. After reading this book, one just might consider that those “kinds” of miracles only happen to select people. As readers will learn, God gives to all. They include at then end of chapters a quick prayer, simple and to the point. They insist there is no “magic” formula. It is God who does the miracles!

Spiritual Blessings

God has made available every spiritual blessing for the believers, but many have not reached out to receive what He has for them. Many don’t realize they are available, while others would rather depend on their own strength or resources, claiming they don’t want to bother the Lord.  

The purpose for these spiritual blessings is to enable you to accomplish what the Lord wants to do through you. This is not only for you, but also for the body of Christ. When Moses killed the Egyptian and had to leave Egypt, he was a general in the Egyptian Army. He failed, because he was depending on his own strength, but after meeting with the Lord, he received spiritual gifts, which enabled him to lead all of Israel out of slavery. 

Tell the Lord you are willing to be used by Him as He sees fit.

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.

Kathy M. Warden releases The Bridge from OneDayBow

A must read - The Bridge from OneDayBow is a fictional and modern-day parable of the Gospel. Written with the use of rhyme and poetry, the author offers an interesting “twist” that brings an understanding of the Kingdom of God versus what the world advocates.

Captivating, yet eye-opening, four characters are portrayed – Truth and Life versus Lies and Death that parallel Scripture, and present insight to life’s purpose. The author’s message is simple, and conveys the truth of eternity coupled with God’s absolute authority as the King of kings and Lord of lords; and His Word, that presents an opportunity to believe in the Good News.  Her hopes are to bring others to the Truth of the Word of God and to salvation in Jesus Christ alone. This is a fantastic book for young and old alike, and although fictional, depicts the battle for your soul and life’s meaningless destiny without knowing your Maker, God Himself.

Intertwined with scripture, Tim, the main character, knows there has just got to be more meaning to life other than collecting bobbles. He embarks on a journey of discovery to find Truth and discovers that there is much deception in his world, depending on who one listens to. He finds that there is a way that brings life, joy and much peace into one’s heart and soul (his nooma) and that this peace is not found in worldly bobbles and collecting, but journeying beyond the HereandNow. A mysterious Bridge, leads the way to finding answers. Tim discovers God’s armor as mentioned in Ephesians 6 and that he has all he needs to win the victory!

A Great Fictional Read

In his new book release, Steve O’Dell reveals the spiritual realm, highlighting the battle of evil behind the scenes, that have relentlessly attacked God’s creation from the beginning - mankind. Ultimately, ending in Jesus’ great forgiveness for all who would believe. 

Captivating, this novel involves a deeper story, one that is of spiritual warfare.

The Nephilim Project: A Demon’s Chronicle by Steve O’Dell is a fast-paced adventure extrapolating from historical and Biblical movements of history such as David’s epic battle against Goliath, and Jesus’ crucifixion. 

Some are telling as to “what it might have been like” in those days, but still, fiction at its best, intertwining the dark plots of evil upon an innocent world. Lucifer, known as the Prince of the Air, and his forces wreak havoc in an unfettered, and strategic assault. Utoneious speaks about his exploits and recoils at the telling of his part along Lucifer’s side, as he tells of the exploration of the great regions of space. The author portrays the realities of the spiritual realm with intensity and realism, combining truth, logic, the supernatural.

Waiting for Earth’s demise – their (Lucifer and his fallen angels) goal is to keep man separated from GodRevealing the supernatural realm from the demonic perspective, the battle is depicted through this statement by a demon, “We need to bring about a complete and comprehensive seduction, persuading men there is no judgment. Satan demands their loyalty either knowing or unsuspecting. Give them the earth, wooden idols, or golden gods to worship; it matters not. These things bring the same end. If we cannot escape Hell neither will man. Obey me, and mankind will also suffer the wrath of God!”  Compelling, to say the least!

Further revealing such great events like the Great Flood being God’s judgment due to man’s increasing wickedness, the story unfolds with Noah and his family and their departure from the Ark to a destroyed and water deluged Earth. As the only remnant saved by a righteous God, Noah is to begin again, and to reclaim and replenish the Earth once more. Depicting the struggles that Noah and his family must have faced after the Flood makes for an interesting read. As the story progresses, a deeper evil is revealed, a power that is controlled by Satan as mankind fights for survival – The secret of the Nephilim is revealed.

The author opens worlds that are not visible, but still exist, to the reader, giving them challenging scenarios to contemplate as evil declares war upon humanity. Stating that, “Faith and love are the driving forces of redemption, and the two concepts reflect the nature of God.” in this aspect, this a deeply inspiring read, one filled with intrigue and suspense as the plot deepens with many twists and turns that also involve subplots of the Knights of the Templar and a holy relic.

This is an amazing read, one that Christian enthusiasts will love as the author has written a novel that is not only creative, but gives insight into the evil that was in the world before its beginning – Satan.
