Prayfit Daily:

Win Ugly

Romans 8:28 says, “All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Is there a more inspiring verse for us during adversity week? Now, does that verse mean our job situation will be transformed? Does it mean our illness will disappear or that our […]


He Held On

He held on. Wouldn’t let go. Not until he got his blessing. Jacob went through something that forever changed how he related to God. The Lord weakened him physically to strengthen him spiritually. And his story finds its way into our week of adversity. Expecting the worst from his brother Esau, Jacob not only prepared practically […]


Darkest Place, Highest Praise

David was no stranger to caves. From the darkest place came his highest praise. Like you, he was no stranger to adversity. I can just hear the faint echo of water as it drops around him. Every few hours he looks and listens, wondering if the coast is clear. Among other hardships, when David wrote Psalm 57, […]


It’s Real

I won’t sugarcoat it. The adversity I’m talking about this week isn’t watered-down. Friends, I’m not talking about the kind of adversity that’s accompanied by “enjoyable” pain; like my old training days and the temporary, tough, voluntary and enjoyable pain that I knew would get me to my goals. No, the adversity I’m talking about is the […]


God’s Purpose for Adversity

Adversity. There’s not a person reading this page that hasn’t faced adversity in one way or another. Whether in a relationship, a financial situation, the loss of a loved one, or perhaps even in health….adversity touches us all. This week we’re going through some together. Pastor Levi Lusko says, “The largest pain calls for the […]


Add Steel To The Spine

Yesterday I shared this on social media: “Hey guys, Been a while since I went freestyle, but if I can add something to the previous post…the fact is, don’t ever let anyone try and convince you of the “health gospel.” There is no health gospel. You can see health THROUGH the Gospel, but a man’s […]


The Lord Hears

“Yes, Lord, your servant is listening.” –1 Samuel 3:10 Read Samuel 3 I’ve been taking meetings this week for the next year’s PrayFit RISE conference, and I find myself praying for God’s will and protection more than ever before. Have you ever been in such a place? I just want Him to be pleased. As I […]


In The Meantime

It’s well-documented that 20 years ago when Yankees ownership asked then professional scout Dick Groch if he thought Derek Jeter would be going to Michigan after high school, he famously replied, “The only place this kid is going is Cooperstown.” Few predictions have ever proved more true. We’ve merely had two decades to see what […]


Glowing With Health

“Rise and anoint him; this is the one.” –1 Samuel 16:12 Believe it or not, I used to sing solos in church and school. Growing up in a gospel-singing family I guess you could say it was in my blood. Too funny: my first solo in the 4th grade was John Denver’s “Take Me Home […]


Keep Your Ears Open

We got to Balboa park on Saturday morning at the perfect time. I got the perfect parking spot under perfect weather. Loretta, about to run her 5 miles, and me, about to do my pull-ups, push-ups and modified dips. A kiss goodbye and “be careful,” and we were set. Just, perfect. Wait, my music. Where’s […]
