Another core value on which my ministry will be built and for which there can be no compromise is prayer. Prayer DEFINES our relationship with God as well as DEFINES the uniqueness of the Christian experience. By being in prayer, we are in relationship with our creator; and we can enter into that relationship at will and stay in relationship continuously via the gift of the Holy Spirit. And, as is testified to in the book of James, prayer is not only available to all, it is very powerful. “The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.” (James 5:15-16)
Are there values that you hold dear about which you will not compromise?
Should we always be willing to compromise?
If there are truths about which we will not compromise, does that make our message “too rigid” and Christians “closed minded?”
