I’m sure you’re just like me in that you love talking about how God transformed your life – you will have some great testimonies of all the times He has come through for you, has answered prayer, has blessed your life from the overflow of His abundance. But many Christians have hidden, ‘no-go’ areas of

Often, when I have prayed, I’ve seen God answer my prayer straight away, within minutes, hours or even a couple of days. But have you ever felt as though you have been praying for something for a very long time, even years, and although you know ‘in your heart of hearts’ that God answers prayer,

In John 5, Jesus asks a man a question; a man who, at first glance it would seem has been longing for healing for 38 years. “Do you want to be healed?” Seems an odd question, since the man has been coming here day after day for years. Yet the man’s response is so telling

From Rags to Riches I recently watched a film about the life story of Walt Disney. What a roller coaster! He had vision, inspiration and ambition but he just couldn’t seem to get that break.
