Glory Seed Guidelines

Notice – The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

These daily devotionals are brought to you by Gary Piper, a writer with our Sister Site, Natural Spirit Ministries. TheologyWeb encourages you to visit and support their site.... they have many informative articles which can be discussed right here. If you enjoy Gary Piper's devotionals, please send him an encouraging note or post. We are very appreciative of our partnership with Natural Spirit Ministries and look forward to many more co-ventures.

    Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
    A praying doctor…

    I took Patti (my wife) to the hospital yesterday morning for parathyroid surgery and while there I had a very unique experience in prayer, one I’ve never experienced until yesterday. While in the waiting room the surgeon came out and told us what she would be doing and then before heading back to the OR she bowed her head and began praying. A doctor praying to God for help in having a successful operation! It not only took me by complete surprise but also filled my spirit with a new found sense of peace and encouragement. And if that was not enough after the surgery was complete she came out and told us everything went well and Patti was in recovery then bowed her head again and gave a prayer of praise and thanks for God’s help. Actually she prayed three times because later Patti told me she had prayer with her while she was waiting to go into the OR.

    I’ve read many books on prayer yet when Dr. Clark bowed her head in that public setting and vocally prayed not just once but twice that God would be with all of them in surgery and then thanked him because he was for me it spoke volumes. It didn’t speak on the mechanics of prayer or the theology of prayer but as prayers part in acknowledging our dependency on God. As an experienced surgeon who has been doing surgery for years she knew her training, skills, knowledge, and experience could only take her so far and there was a real possibility they might not be enough so she would need help beyond her present capacity and she knew God would provide her with whatever she needed.

    Today there is a possibility that you will find yourself facing a seemingly insurmountable situation and there will be many things firing through your mind like bursts from a machine gun. One of them will be, “I need you God!” when that presents itself to you STOP, DROP and PRAY! (When I say drop I don’t mean to your knees I mean drop your guard and give God whatever he needs to help you and then believe and trust.

    Anticipate! Experience! Believe! Be transformed!
    Grace and PEACE, Amen!
