Father’s Love Letter – “God’s letter” to humanity

Created by Barry Adams in the late 1990s, “Father’s Love Letter” is a compilation of Bible verses that are arranged in the form of a love letter written by God to you or to humanity in general. I invite you to watch Barry Adams explain it himself in the following video:

According to their website, since 1999, the “letter” has impacted countless people, has been translated into over 100 languages, has appeared as full page newspaper ads and has even been delivered home to home in entire countries.

The Father’s Love Letter is available on the website FathersLoveLetter.com in a number of free downloadable multi media formats, and people are welcomed to share it with others as long as they abide by the site’s terms of use guidelines.

I invite you to watch the video and check out the website FathersLoveLetter.com to read the text and watch various versions of the video.

How to pray when you haven’t got a prayer

In this video from Saddleback Church’s YouTube channel, Pastor Buddy Owens offers some helpful advice about how to pray when you’re going through a time of turmoil and crisis and you feel like you don’t have a prayer.

How to Pray When You Haven’t Got a Prayer – Pastor Buddy Owens – Saddleback Church

Turning to Psalm 77 as an example of how to pray when you’re going through a season of darkness and confusion, Pastor Owens lists 5 important steps:

  1. Crying out to God
  2. Admitting your feelings and your fears (groaning in prayer)
  3. Appealing to God’s faithfulness (meditating on the many ways in which God has blessed you before, thinking about the things that God has already done for you, how He saved you, how He got you out of a tight spot in the past, what you were facing, what His timing was, what difference it made etc.)
  4. Turning your complaints into praise (switching from “God, are you finished being kind?” to “God, You’re amazing!”)
  5. 5. Following fearlessly (follow God into the unknown)

I hope this will help you if you ever find yourself in a season of confusion when praying and remaining faithful to God look like difficult tasks.
