Tens of thousands of people from all over the United States of America gathered last June in the state of Kentucky to see some of the biggest bands in the world at the Ichthus Christian Music festival. In the midst of the thousands gathered several students took up residence in the most unlikely of places… a 24-7 Prayer tent.

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to declare good news to the Poor, he has sent me to proclaim freedom for the captives….”Jesus, Luke 4:18 Jesus’ public ministry began with these extraordinary words, declaring that God is with the Poor and on the side of the oppressed.

Shout the Gospel from the Rooftops!

, 5th October, 2009

What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. (Matthew 10:27)

   The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

Saints & Celebrities

Mark Knight, 28th September, 2009

Perhaps you’ve heard about the latest band to hit the English and Welsh shores? Not a band of musicians, but of nuns! And they bring you not tunes, but bones. For 12 years and counting, a band of sisters have toured the world with relics of a famous Carmelite nun called St Thérèse of Lisieux, and this month they are in the UK, just one leg (literally) of a tour that has already taken them to Ireland, Cameroon and Guyana this year alone.

Jake Myszka, 21st September, 2009

There is this house on Winnebago Street on the near-east side of Madison that used to be a Meth lab but now it’s the central hub of our 24-7 Boiler Room community. The floorboards are charred from when the kitchen used to manufacture narcotics.

Sharing Tears in Boys Town Mexico

Adri Roos, 14th September, 2009

Have you ever wondered why tears flow from your eyes? Why don't they secretly flow from the back of your knees, down your calves to your ankles? Or from underneath your arms, down your back all the way to your hips? Tears are meant to be shared, from one pair of eyes to the other. You're not supposed to cry by yourself.

Prevailing Prayer: The Lessons of Charles Finney

Sheena Littlehale, 4th September, 2009

On September 4, 1859, Charles Grandison Finney delivered a sermon called “The Prevailing Prayer-Meeting” to a Glasgow congregation. His words may have been antiquated, but his insight on the equal attention we must give to prayer and action is timeless.

Ten Tips for Greater Faith By Pete Greig

Pete Greig, 31st August, 2009

If we want to see mountains move, cancers disappear and dollars come through the mail, we’re going to need plenty of faith in God. Jesus put it like this: If you believe you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer (Matthew 21:22) On another occasion, when the disciples’ prayers hadn’t worked, Jesus explained that it was: ‘Because you have so little faith’ (Matthew 17:20).

Let the Children Come to Me

Lindsay Ellyson, 24th August, 2009

It struck me the other day that perhaps my most promising disciple at the moment is an eight-year-old towhead named Preston, who lives in my neighborhood.  I befriended his mom at the local pool last summer and since have spent time nearly every week with this precious, but broken family.
