More Prayer Please

Hey Friends,

I'm getting ready to leave to speak at a Sex Addicts Anonymous Retreat tonight. I love these events, because I love these types of groups.

All too often, a real solid recovery group looks a whole lot more like the church than the church does. Full on acceptance regardless. It's truly remarkable, and it is incredibly inspiring - something corporate worship should aspire to, but our masks get in the way.

The challenge to these groups is to talk about God in the general sense. I'm a bit handcuffed by not really being able to hammer the Gospel, and if you've ever heard me speak, you know that's really difficult for me to do.

Pray that I will be sensitive, yet bold where necessary. Please also pray for protection and courage as I tell my story. It's always difficult and draining, and the accuser is often close behind. Pray that I will remember that all of that happened, "Before Love Came to Town." Pray that some of these men may be changed by the power of the Gospel tonight.

I'll be up at 7:30 CST.

    Your post reminds me of a comment I heard somewhere the other day: Christians belong to the only army that kills it's wounded. That's why we are often afraid to show our wounds and imperfections. Let us know how your talk at the retreat went. - PKW

    Hey PKW,

    Thanks for your comment, and it is sadly, very true. Christians kill and eat their wounded, and it can be very difficult.

    The retreat went well, thanks for asking and for praying.

    I was able to be very free, and creative with the presentation. We had a blast.

    I was able to share the Gospel with them in non-threatening way.

    We had a GREAT Q&A session, too. Really really good session...

    Thanks so much for visiting the blog and commenting!

    Brother, friend...thank you for trusting us to pray. Glad to hear it went well. Glad to join you in saying that this is the person I was "before love came to town." Rejoicing in my freedom in Christ today.

    Fantastic, Joan! Thanks for praying with me.

    I'll go ahead and ask for more as this weekend, I'm going to speak in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada at the Ruth Graham "Get Real" conference. They are expecting a crowd of close to 5,000.

    Please pray that God is glorified, and the Gospel is magnified, and that people will begin to understand this issue better and learn to respond in the grace of the Gospel.
