Andrew Murray: "Casting Thyself on Christ"

Andrew Murray: "Casting Thyself on Christ"

This week we’re going to look into the life of Andrew Murray. Well known for the phrase “casting thyself on Christ” and his many authored works, Murray has valuable lessons to teach us regarding prayer and self sacrifice.

 

Andrew Murray was born in South Africa in 1828. His father, a Dutch Reformed minister, was in his own right, a prevailer in prayer. He read weekly to Andrew and the rest of the family, stories about past revivals and prayed with them regularly for revival in South Africa. Later, Andrew moved to Scotland to stay and study with his uncle who was also a reverend. It was here that Andrew was, no doubt, affected for the rest of his life when Revivalist William Burns visited and spent long hours into the night discussing God with the Murrays. Burns himself had a deep burden for lost souls and would often weep and pray for hours, giving Murray a lifestyle to model.

Men and Women of Faith: Elisabeth Elliot

Men and Women of Faith: Elisabeth Elliot

As one of the most influential writers of our Christian faith, Elisabeth Elliot has truly known the meaning of sacrifice, forgiveness, and perseverance. A short biography will never do her justice, and can read multiple biographies on her life and never truly touch who she is and her relationship with Christ until you delve into her breathtaking books, which tackle some of the hardest life topics with an immense amount of grace.

How They Prayed Series: Barclay Buxton

How They Prayed Series: Barclay Buxton

Today we will be taking a peek at another ongoing series we will be visiting hopefully quite often. Our “How They Prayed” series looks into the lives of the peoples past who were involved in the great conquests of missions and revivals. We find these stories from the books of Harvey Publishers, who for many years have worked tirelessly to preserve the history of Christian missions and revivals. These stories have been kept alive so that this current generation may also carry on that hope, and know what we also can be capable of if we think outside the norm of the culture we have been brought up in and expand our vision upwards and outwards.

Answered Prayer Series Part 1

This week we are starting a new series on Answered Prayers. We have focused a lot lately on what to pray for and the importance of prayer, but it behooves us to meditate on prayers that we are blessed enough to see the fruits of. Reading of God’s providence can often be a source of encouragement and faith strengthening.

For Your Name, Lord!

For Your Name, Lord!

Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, But to Your name give glory, Because of Your mercy, Because of Your truth. Why should the Gentiles say, "So where [is] their God?" But our God [is] in heaven; He does whatever He pleases. Their idols [are] silver and gold, The work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they do not speak; Eyes they have, but they do not see; They have ears, but they do not hear; Noses they have, but they do not smell; They have hands, but they do not handle; Feet they have, but they do not walk; Nor do they mutter through their throat. - Psalm 115:1-7

. Ripe for a Revival: Conditions before the Greats

. Ripe for a Revival: Conditions before the Greats

  From the Answered Prayers Series

Dire seems our condition. Our society trudges on in stubbornness and fierceness, yet fearfully disoriented. Our education has gone awry and somehow in the pursuit of higher education, it appears the generation here, coming, and on its way out, has suffered in a lack of it. Morals are disintegrating before our eyes like the faint wisp of a dandelion seed, desperately we grab for it and urge others to do the same but to no avail. There appears to be some sort of value to life, due to laws set forth; yet the laws set forth add to the degradation by advocating the extermination of the more precious forms of life, the unborn. Adding on to the increase of suicide and depression.

Do Not Love the World or the Things in the World

Do Not Love the World or the Things in the World

"Lord, forgive us, for the church has conformed to the world. God’s people view pornography, listen to the same music as the world, and act like the world. You are a holy God and You are seeking a holy people. We repent and ask that You would forgive us and send us a revival! O God, make us a holy people for Your glory!” 

This prayer was prayed recently in an America Pray Now prayer meeting and was very impacting! The Lord’s desire is to have a church that is not conformed to this world. Only then will His life and power flow through us to our needy nation.

The Lord Stirs the Heart

The Lord Stirs the Heart

In the historical books of the Bible, we learn that God is intimately involved in history and the destiny of nations. We discover an inspired historical record that encourages us to believe that God can and will answer our prayers for America. In the Book of Ezra, for example, we read that God inspired King Cyrus of Persia to urge the Jewish exiles to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple that the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar had destroyed some seventy years earlier.


“Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying, Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah. Who is among you of all His people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel (He is God), which is in Jerusalem.” (Ezra 1:1-3)

Jesus, Son of David have mercy on me!

Jesus, Son of David have mercy on me!
In Mark chapter 10 we find the story of a blind man named Bartimaeus.
It says that as Jesus went out of Jericho with His disciples a great multitude followed them, and Blind Bartimaeus sat by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David have mercy on me!” Then some warned him to be quiet, but he cried out all the more, “Son of David have mercy on me!” 
 

For Bartimaeus, the first step towards healing was humility.
