Pray with Pertsistence

Have you ever felt like giving up in prayer? As an intercessor, I admit I’ve had times when I felt overwhelmed and frustrated—when I’ve prayed and prayed, maybe for weeks, or even years, and seen no breakthrough. Questions have run through my mind: “What’s the use? What difference does it make if I pray?”

It is one of the devil’s goals to keep each of us from experiencing the blessings of God that come through intercessory prayer. Intercessory prayer is unique because it means, literally, “to stand in the gap for another.”

Day 1: I Made It!

After staying up to 3 am the night before preparing for my trip, and after nearly missing my flight to JFK the next day, I finally made it to Israel!

My tour group and I arrived at Ben Gurion International Airport close to 3:30 pm and could hardly wait to see the first city on the tour schedule.

Tel Aviv is a wonderful place to visit, but if you’re thinking it’s lined with dusty roads like in biblical times, think again. It’s a modern city and has all the makings of a bustling metropolis like billboards, quaint restaurants, public transportation and more.

On the day Obama was inaugurated I went to a seminar in Miami about how to utilize the Internet. It was fascinating to hear how companies are beginning to connect with customers in new ways to grow their businesses. As I listened, I wondered how we in the church can...

The Gift That Keeps on Giving

One night last year I was about to climb into bed when I felt an urgent need to slip to my knees and pray fervently for my uncle, Don. I had actually had a gnawing feeling all week that God was speaking to me about him and had tried calling him so we could pray together, but I wasn’t able to reach him.

I knew in my spiritual “knower” that I needed to intercede for my uncle.

Has the Lord ever dropped the name of a person in your mind or flashed someone’s face before you? Sometimes He will tell you directly to pray for a person, and at other times He uses a different method to grab your attention. Either way, I believe it is God beckoning us to pray for others.

Heather Headley: From Trinidad to Broadway

Heather Headley: From Trinidad to Broadway

Heather Headley grew up in Trinidad as a preacher’s kid. “I literally was born into the church. … My bedroom was the wall to the sanctuary,” she says. She lived with an understanding of Christ but as she got older she started to understand why her parents were so happy in church. “You start figuring it out because it now becomes a part of your life,” Headley says. It wasn’t easy being a preacher’s kid, but she adds: “I’m glad I grew up with the morals we had. I’m glad I grew up under that kind of regimen and instruction. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

Headley and her family moved in 1989 from Trinidad to Indiana, where she participated in high school theater before going to Northeastern University to major in communications and musical theater. In her junior year she left to be an understudy on the Broadway show Ragtime. The following year she won the role of Nala in The Lion King. That performance led to her landing the title role in Aida, for which she won a Tony for Best Actress. She recorded two albums for the Broadway shows as well as two solo albums and won a Grammy for her debut R&B album.
