Wow. This conference just seems to be growing and growing! More buses keep arriving, and the morning session was even more packed out than last night’s! There are people coming from all over the Middle East to be a part of the conference. We are truly witnessing something historic!

If you have not been able to listen to any of the conference live, be sure to visit this website to listen to the archives!

There are only a few links on the page, so if you can’t read...

IHOP’s international onething conference in Egypt began today with approximately 3,000 attendees at the afternoon session and what seemed like double that amount of attendees at the evening session. Luke Wood led worship tonight, and a good part of his worship set was done in Arabic rather than English. He did a great job, and many of the people began cheering when he started singing in Arabic! Luke is leading again tomorrow morning, and then Justin Rizzo will be leading tomorrow night. He’s going to be singing in Arabic as well and is perhaps a bit more nervous than Luke, but I am...

After an uneventful and long 8-hour flight from Atlanta to Paris, and then another long 4 hour flight from Paris to Cairo, we’ve finally arrived in Egypt! There were no major hiccups along the way, and customs even went smoothly. Praise God!

The onething event is being held at a sports camp about halfway between Cairo and Alexandria in the middle of the desert. The camp has a covered soccer stadium that holds about 8,000 people, and they are expecting to come close to packing it out at the Friday’s bigger sessions. Everyone is buzzing with excitement about what God is going to...

Tomorrow marks the beginning of my trek to Cairo, Egypt for the onething conference there. I'm super excited - I've never travelled internationally before! I'll be heading there with Luke Wood, Justin Rizzo, and other members of the onething team. Dwayne and Jen Roberts and Wes Martin will be speaking at the 4-day event, and we'll be leading worship many times (even a few times in Arabic, believe it or not). After the conference, we'll be ministering at a church in Cairo for a few days and doing a little bit of sightseeing before returning home.

We've received word that the...

I spent my final moments of 2008 back here:

If you think that's a little strange, let me explain. I was a part of the stage crew at this year's onething conference in Bartle Hall downtown KC, where we always ring in the new year with worship and prayer...

For anyone like me dismayed and utterly disgusted with the political system, the elections, and the state of our nation because it does not line up with that of heaven's, I'd highly recommend reading this amazing blog by one of my favorite teachers here at IHOP, Stephen Venable. I couldn't agree more with what he said.

Here's a quote that sums it all up:

Biblically God’s winds of change do not blow from capitals and courtrooms, nor are they the least bit hindered by the resistance of...

I'm back from Arizona and there's been a lot brewing on my heart. I'll give more on my trip and what's brewing in a few days because we're just about to jump into our normal monthly 3-day fast. But I just wanted to post this quickly...

If you haven't seen the new Prayer Room webstream, be sure to go check it out. It now has multiple "channels" in addition to the live 24/7 worship and prayer.

You can:

  • Be encouraged by fresh interviews and moving personal testimonies
  • Pray with us for your family, your friends,...

The other day I remembered again that there is such a wealth of history and depth in Christ that the saints of old walked in. My roommate has a book of old Puritan prayers, and one of them, entitled "Spiritus Sanctus" (Latin for something like "Holy Spirit") is really powerful. I've started to pray this one regularly for the past couple of days since reading it. Now don't just read it below - pray it too, focusing on Holy Spirit who lives in you! May the communion and fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you today (2 Corinthians 13:14).

O Holy Spirit,

Okay, so it's been WAY too long since I've written here. The main reason is because I am currently without a laptop computer, but thanks to God's gracious provision, a brand new one is arriving early next week. I have had so much I've wanted to write about, but the old fashioned way I've been journaling these past few weeks (pen and paper) just doesn't seem to work all that well for web readers :)

The main thing the Lord has been speaking to me about is how little I know Him as Father. I'm so convinced that the revelation of God as our Father is absolutely critical to...

Prayer is one of the most foolish things (in the eyes of the world, anyways) that we can give our time and energy to. What is it about closing our eyes and talking to an invisible God that He enjoys so much? It often times seems so dry, so weak, and an utter waste. But in His absolute wisdom, the Lord gave us some mind-blowing promises if we would give ourselves to the place of prayer.

Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. (John 16:24 NKJV)

Jesus says boldly "Pray,...
