Prayer walking

June 11th, 2008

Most days I spend time walking around the University of Glasgow praying, essentially, for revelation. For God to reveal himself, to open eyes so many may see, ears, so that many may hear and believe in Jesus Christ.
I was thinking about Dan Ward this week, how he as a student at the university, a […]


May 28th, 2008

I have two recurring nightmares that pop up from time to time, both of them I find quite ironic. One of my reoccurring nightmares has to do with public speaking. Usually I find myself, the day of a message having not yet prepared. Sometimes it is a Sunday message but more often […]

My Prayers These Days…

April 24th, 2008

These are some of the things I have been praying about these days.

Thankful. After 5 years living in Scotland and praying over the University of Glasgow I was finally invited to speak at the Christian Union. It was a great honour to be asked to speak and God seems to really have blessed […]

Thank you to all those who pray…

The Wonderful Crisis (A Long Praise)

January 9th, 2008

Sunday morning about 2 hours before church was to start on the 6th of January, in the cold Scottish winter, our temporary heater stopped working. The building’s heating system had been vandalized over a year ago and the estimated fixing costs were between £15,000-30,000 (30,000-60,000US) from a heating expert we paid to look over […]


November 14th, 2007

This past Sunday was a big milestone for our church. It was our first time to break the 100 person barrier. The exact number was one hundred eleven.
These last couple years have seen daunting obstacles and significant milestones. They have seen times of incredible discouragement, and times of amazement at what God […]

The Fast

October 29th, 2007

Tonight begins our churches 24 hour fast. We are fasting and praying specifically over the remaining obstacles to purchasing this building. Yesterday we received confirmation that the owners are attempting to have our church building turned into flats (cause of delay). It is in the government’s hands. I think it […]

Hesitant Prayer update:

October 26th, 2007

This week we had THE most powerful prayer time, maybe ever. People came out of the woodwork to pray with us and God was there. A HUGE spiritual victory and a HUGE answer to prayer.
The reason I hesitate to update is I don’t want to take any urgency out of praying for our […]

So Sneaky…

October 23rd, 2007

I have become convinced our church is under the most subtle and dangerous of spiritual attacks and it is coming at the most sneaky of times. It comes at a time when we are growing, things seem to be thriving, people are excited, and the services are going well. On the one hand […]

Mountain Rain

August 17th, 2007

In Northern Ireland I met an old Baptist pastor named Alistair (we were seated next to each other during a wedding reception.) During our conversation it surfaced that we had a common passion for missionary biographies, specifically on ‘men of prayer.’ His personal favourite is called “Mountain Rain: A biography of James. O.
