Another Prayer Warrior Joins the Heavenly Chorus

My first remembrance of Helen Turner was when she joined my CKI group in Tulsa. Helen taught school with Joyce Hasty and as they became friends Joyce realized that Helen was a covenant keeper, so she began attending my Monday night CK meetings with Joyce. Helen had one of the most unusual sounding prayer languages I had ever heard. I remember talking with Marilyn Conrad about it and she assured me that it was the real thing. The sound of Helen’s prayer language really created problems until one day a missionary visiting Victory Church told Helen that he understood her […]

When You Don’t Know What to Pray

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • January 8, 2019

Have you ever been so burdened by a problem that you say “I just don’t even know what to pray?” When the circumstances of life seem too big or complex to comprehend, shift your focus to who God is by praying God’s character. For every circumstance I believe and proclaim… God is sovereign. All authority and all power is His. Matthew 28:18. Nothing takes Him by surprise. All circumstances serve Him. God knows the end from the beginning. Psalms 119:91, Isa 46:9-10. His word is forever settled in heaven. Psalms 119:89. God does all things for our good and His […]

A Crown for a Hat

Joyce Hasty has graduated to heaven. This is a great loss to our CKI family and she will be greatly missed. Joyce joined my CKI group early in the 80s and remained a friend until she died in December 2018. I was privileged to be the one who prayed with her the day she received her prayer language after a CKI meeting.  She was a faithful CKI meeting attendee and was often quite a character at the meetings. She always had something funny to tell us about her situation while being a quick learner of things to do or not […]

Christmas While Waiting For Restoration

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • December 25, 2018

Christmas. It is that wonderful time of year when families celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is a time of cheer, a time of blessing and a time of… Wait! Hold on a minute! If we are honest with our thoughts, it’s a time of remembrance. A time when we had our spouses in the same house and a sense of great love and anticipation as we watched our “I do” open the special present we spent hours picking just for them. The reality is that we may be feeling sad, that this year our spouse is […]

Christmas Tidings of Great Joy  

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • December 18, 2018

Why do we celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25th? Is it because we have always done it that way? Why is there a Santa Claus if we are celebrating Jesus’ birth? Why have a Christmas tree? And what’s with the sleigh and reindeer? Do you ever wonder about those things? Is the whole thing a celebration of pagan rituals captured by commercial interests in the last couple of centuries to generate revenue for greedy retailers? Sometimes I wonder about that one. The truth is that we do not know the exact date of Jesus’ birth. Before you accuse […]

How Badly Do You Want To Know The Truth?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • November 27, 2018

Are you willing to set aside all your filters and allow something new or foreign to come in? Are you willing to empty yourself of that which merely occupies in order to receive that which fully satisfies? Are you willing to get up on the Cross and stay there until all the impurities and toxins are burned away? Do you desire to know what God knows and follow His time-released path — one step at a time? Are you willing to forsake all others in order to achieve a great Prize? Do you trust Him to take care of all […]

What Can I Do When My Spouse Is In Adultery?

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • October 30, 2018

Handling the Hurt There is no denying that adultery brings an incredible amount of pain and hurt when it enters a marriage. This pain may manifest in many ways; rejection, anger, feelings of failure and worthlessness, frustration, helplessness, confusion, depression, suicidal thoughts, vengeful attitudes, shame, neediness, dependencies and the list goes on. As humans who have been created to feel and express emotions, we can’t deny or ignore their reality. At the same time, we cannot let them control us, for many of them are destructive if left unchecked. We must learn to deal honestly with our emotions. In the […]

Rest for Your Soul

  • October 16, 2018

                   In Matthew 11:28-30 (ESV), Jesus says, “Come to me all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” What a promise! Think about that for a moment. That invitation and promise is made specifically for you. “Come to me,” Jesus says. He didn’t say to go to your family, or friends, or […]

Peace

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 1, 2018

What an elusive thing. Everybody wants it, but few understand or want to do what it takes to receive it. Peace is more than rest. It is subjecting everything to the will of God. It is allowing the Holy Spirit to strain every self-flesh thing out of us. It relinquishes its grip on the things of this world. Peace is always on the move. From one side of our character to the other, exposing that which corrupts the soul. Peace is an infusion of God’s grace to do what increases life in spite of a trial. Peace is the container […]

R U Willing 2 Trust God

With your life? Through thick and then? Til’ death do you part? Are you willing to run after the One who loves you as much as He does His own Son? Are you willing to live in all the fruits of the Spirit including long-suffering? Are you willing to receive all God has for you? To enjoy the blessing as well as overcome the testing? Are you willing to say ‘I do’ to His request in obedience of integrity? Are you willing to love God more and your feelings less? Are you willing to trust faith over facts? God over […]
