Prayer is the gateway to many blessings. It brings us to the throne of God, and shields us from the power of the tempter. Daily communing with God is essential to victory. Prayer is not a tool to put on the back shelf and use only in an emergency. The person who lives in the spirit of prayer will find it to be an avenue of reciprocal love. How can we have effectual, fervent prayers in the midst of the snares of a fast-paced twenty-first century society?
A key thought in this book is "Be still and know that I am God" Psalm Drawing from Jesus' own examples, as well as examining the prayer life of saints in the past, this book contains much practical advice to help the believer more fully enjoy the blessings of daily communion with our heavenly Father. God holds ultimate control over all His creation. He establishes laws, institutions, and authority to maintain order in His creation.

He delegates authority to men to regulate conduct and to maintain peace in the home, the church, and the government. But that in no way diminishes God's authority over all things. We properly exercise authority only as we submit ourselves to God and to those whom He has set over us. As we submit to God and his delegated authority, we achieve our highest purpose and ultimate usefulness. If we resist God's will and rebel against those whom He has set over us, we condemn ourselves. God gave us life, order and authority to do His will "in earth, as it is in heaven. But ultimately, God will bring all things back into subjection to Himself.

Few people realize that while the Reformation was altering the face of central Europe, a parallel movement was underway in Spain. It was inspired by brave people who dared to study and practice the Bible in the face of intense opposition from the Catholic Inquisition.
Among the leaders of the Spanish Reformation was Casiodoro de Reina, a man who passionately wanted to provide the people of Spain with the Bible in their own language. During the twelve years he spent translating the Bible, the Inquisition ruthlessly hunted him in an effort to destroy his work. As Casiodoro fled from country to country across Europe in search of safety, the Inquisition imprisoned, tortured, and burned his fellow believers, determined to suppress the spread of God's Word.
Despite all their efforts, Casiodoro completed his translation at last, and it became the foundation for the Bible that is still read by millions of Spanish-speaking believers today. The gripping story of Casiodoro de Reina's mission is one of adventure, betrayal, suffering, endurance, and death. Most of all it is a story of triumph—the triumph of God's Word that is stronger than fire.

Many parents see the importance of family worship, but struggle to find material suitable for their whole family. Faithful Families is part of a series of devotional books that addresses that need. Each of the thirteen sections in this book focuses on a different Bible character—Noah, Rahab, Samson, and others.
Each sections has readings for seven days, making ninety-one lessons—enough for approximately a quarter of a year. Each day's lesson consists of two parts. The first part is especially for Dad and Mom and the older children. It includes a suggested Scripture reading, a theme verse, and a devotional meditation on the topic introduced by the Scripture reading.
The second part consists of a reading from a continued children's story related to that week's theme. Each story is followed by questions for review and discussion, which provide opportunities for applying the theme to life. May God bless your family worship time, that you and your family may "grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ" 2 Peter God is faithful to His promises, so "let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering" Hebrews Captain Jim felt calm elation as he leveled the C at cruise altitude.
