Prayfit Daily:

Run Your Route

“But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground.” –John 8:6 Read: John 8 Question: What do the most gifted, talented football players in the world have in common? Seeing as it’s the day after the Super Bowl, I thought I’d ask. Is it their speed? Strength? Endurance? No. It’s much simpler actually. They huddle […]


I Need To See You Move

“I need to see you move. I need to see your hand. I’m trying to live by faith. I don’t know if I can. But I know you’ve not changed. There’s nothing you can’t do. I’ve done all that I can. I need to see you move.”–Newsong Dear Lord, like it says in the chorus of this song, […]


Just Plane Strong

Just getting back from Florida guys. Such a neat time with amazing people and churches. And guess what, I flew in the emergency exit row. Here’s why that’s cool. Some of you may remember this story, but it wasn’t long after my second spine surgery that I consciously booked the emergency exit row. At that […]


Stay Hungry

“And I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way.” –Matthew 15:32 I bet they couldn’t get enough. In fact, the sun had set three times and I wonder if they even noticed. Who was this man? The words, the wisdom, the…grace! Indeed, I bet they couldn’t get […]


During The Storm

“Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” –Mark 4:38 The disciples knew what to do. Isn’t it true? They knew what to do, and they were the first to do it. Do what exactly? Well, they did literally what you and I do metaphorically. They praised Him in the storm. We know the story. First came […]


We Can Take It

“We are well able to conquer it.” –Numbers 13:30 Of the twelve spies to survey the promised land, the Bible says that only two came back positive that they’d be victorious with God’s help. Two dream chasers. Two true believers. When everyone else was negative, these two were wide-eyed and hopeful. We can take it, […]


Grace and Truth

“Living by grace means daily affirming our unworthiness. We are never thankful for what we think we deserve.” – Randy Alcorn Recently I was asked to attend a leadership study group at church being led by our pastor, Shawn Thornton. There’s roughly 15 people in the group, and we’ve met for a couple of weeks so […]


Light Your World

We’re people watchers — me and my best pal, Ms. Josey Wales — and last night was no exception. Sitting outside Trader Joe’s waiting for mama to finish shopping, we watched all sorts of people. Some of them even noticed Josey’s grey beard and eye brows. We took it all in. But then we watched […]


Heal The Wound, Leave The Scar

Recently on Twitter, one of my favorite authors and PrayFit RISE keynote speaker, Scotty Smith, had such a neat question for us. He said, “In the new heaven/new earth, I want to sing like Steve Perry, love like Mother Teresa and paint like Makoto Fugimura. You?” I spent the better part of the afternoon trying […]


Walking On Rooftops

Yesterday Pastor Shawn Thornton gave a wonderful sermon about the prideful heart, and he used King Nebuchadnezzar as an example. Loretta and I couldn’t take notes fast enough. For those of you attending PrayFit RISE here in Los Angeles on April 11th, you’ll have the opportunity to hear Shawn Thornton teach. You’ll love him. Our […]
