Is silent prayer the same as thinking and should we pray out loud?

When it comes to praying should we do it in silence and if so how is it different to thinking?

Is silent prayer the same as thinking and should we pray out loud?

There is a great deal of uncertainty in the Christian faith about how to pray. We all want our prayers to be answered and of course we expect God to hear us. However can prayers be effective if we simply think them or should they be spoken out loud?

Is Business 'For' God or 'Of' God?

Sometimes we have to look backwards to know that we're moving forwards in the right direction.

Is Business 'For' God or 'Of' God?

Twenty years ago I had a quadruple heart bypass.  Ten years ago I was told by a cardiac consultant to stop drinking alcohol and lose 30kgs.  In the same year 2006, I came up with an idea for a book and a new business.

If you take a look at the About pages you can find out a bit more about my background, but in a nutshell, I've been self-employed since 1987 in the business to business arena.

I believe that money is the single most contentious and destructive element that exists throughout the Christian faith

How our money damages our relationship with God, but not how you think!

Since the beginning of time, there has always been a problem between man, money and God. Whenever a pastor or minister begins to address finances, the shutters come up.

Is it right to sing Matt Redman's Blessed be the name of the Lord?

How do worship songs affect us?

When life “hit’s the fan”, the Church regularly turns us to the Book of Job to supposedly help comfort us, however, it seems to me that there’s a mismatch of messages. Are we really supposed to be comforted by the Book of Job or are we being “left in the lurch” for the sake of entertainment?

What will it take for us to stop listening to celebrities and find out for ourselves what it means to be saved

How can a non-Christian acknowledge or accept they're lost or know that being 'saved' really means?

I recently heard a talk by Nancy Alcorn of Mercy Ministries describing the lost...

There are many sheep in Australia and towards the end of the day typically we would see one sheep with his head down eating grass and the rest of the sheep have walked away and are then taken to an enclosure. The lone sheep eating, lifts up its head, can't see all the other sheep and says to itself, "oh I'm lost".

It's the same with people who are busy doing their lives, working, learning, looking after the children and so on, that when they look up day to say oh I'm lost!
