Travail to Prevail


This is one of the most unique and inspiring books ever written on prayer. In it Joseph Mattera uses the Bible, memoirs from powerful revivalists, and personal experience to shed light upon the most effective (but least understood) form of intercession. This book dispels the idea that mere perfunctory prayer is enough to birth revival. The writer also shows the lifestyle change and personal sacrifice needed if Christians are truly going to bring global societal transformation. There has never been another book like this in recent memory! This book is a must for all believers who yearn to see God answer their prayers and move powerfully in their midst!

Ten Signs Your Church Has Been Secularized

The Bible teaches that the church is supposed to influence the world as salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16), but instead the church has often been influenced by the world. The book of Ezekiel 22:26 sends a stern rebuke to believers who make no distinction between that which is common and that which is holy (by […]

It’s time to re-write the race, religion and gay narrative

A narrative has been written by the powers that be, in the media and popular culture, which has successfully divided humanity into segments related to ethnicity, religious beliefs and sexual preference.  Consequently, neighbors of diverse backgrounds interact and view each “other” with a particular categorical lens replete with disdain because it assigns baggage and demonizes […]


Do other ancient accounts of creation disprove the bible?

(The following points is my summary of issues Dr Peter Enns discussed in his book “Inspiration and Incarnation”) Since the nineteenth century, higher critical views of Scripture (as opposed to lower critical views that concern biblical exegesis that involve the study of historical context and culture, the author’s intent, and so on) came on the […]
