What to do when you’re too wounded to pray
By Dr. Jack Graham | September 5, 2018

The next time you see a member of the armed forces in dress uniform, look at the ribbons worn over their heart.

If you see a dark purple ribbon with white stripes binding each end, you’re looking at a member of the walking wounded. The Purple Heart is a decoration given to service members wounded in the line of duty.

You and I live in a wounded world – and we don’t need a ribbon or medal to tell us so. All we have to do is look around to see that something went terribly wrong.

There have been times when I’ve felt so lost that I didn’t even know how to pray about it. The words “Lord, help” were on my mind, but they didn’t leave my lips. God knows how I felt, and He knows how you feel.

So, when you are too wounded to pray, the Spirit of God can help you overcome in three specific ways…

He overcomes the problem of prayerlessness. One of the ironies of the spiritual life is that we grow less energetic about prayer at the times we need to pray most. But inevitably, the Holy Spirit arrests our thoughts and leads us back to prayer (Galatians 4:6).

He overcomes the problem of pain. In times of great need, we probably need to do more listening than talking. The Holy Spirit prays in and through us according to the will of God (Romans 8:27), giving the direction we need.

He overcomes the problem of powerlessness. In times of despair, a simple confession of your feelings will engage the Holy Spirit to fight against distractions and confusion – and empower you to pray effectively.

Coreen recently wrote to share her frustration with television being bombarded with so many “false prophets,” in her words. But the faithful support of generous friends like you ensures Coreen can access PowerPoint every day online.

Coreen shared…

“I have a select few ministries I listen to. I try to watch you every day. I pray for you every day. Thank you and keep up the good work for the LORD.”

Thank you for giving Coreen hope through messages she knows she can trust!

From Dr. Graham's Desk
By Dr. Jack Graham | September 1, 2018

Dear Friend,

One of my favorite personalities in the entire Bible is Joseph. He was a godly young man who had great dreams and great desires from God.

Joseph’s dreams led him to be sold into slavery by his own brothers. Yet, even after he was taken to Egypt, Joseph knew his source of protection – and he didn’t give up on his dreams.

Life may be dealing you painful blows, one after another, but like Joseph, you can have hope. I pray this issue of PowerLiving helps you to rely on the One who gave you great dreams.

It’s this same hope and joyful anticipation that you also help share with others when you give to PowerPoint. And this month, any gift you give will be DOUBLED by a $100,000 Matching Grant, so I ask you to please respond generously.

Thank you for helping spread the promise and protection of Christ across the globe!

’Til the whole world hears,

The world is hearing… thanks to you!
By PowerPoint Ministries | September 1, 2018

One of the driving goals of PowerPoint Ministries is to proclaim Christ ’til the whole world hears. It’s a promise that has never been more affirmed than it was recently while Pastor Graham was in Germany to preach, speak at seminaries, and train local pastors.

While visiting a Persian church in Cologne, Pastor Graham was immediately approached by the pastor who wanted to take a picture to share with his friends and family back in Iran. They don’t have a lot of access to the Gospel messages – except through watching PowerPoint every Sunday, because our messages are translated into Farsi and broadcast through a partnership with Iran Alive.

This is only possible through your gifts and prayers. So thank you for encouraging these believers in Germany, and so many others in Iran, with Bible teaching and discipleship shared through PowerPoint!
