Here are a few reviews:

Jeff Goins

“I needed this book. If you feel like you’ve lost your gift or wandered too far from home and aren’t sure if you can find your way back, you need it too.” Jeff Goins, best selling author of The Art of Work

Tanya

The “Kingdom of Thrim” is fantastic! It is a wonderful children’s book, that I am sure adults will enjoy. It has a powerful message of following God’s purpose for your life. The language is simple, engaging and captivating. The pictures are wonderfully done and help to bring the book to life. I can’t wait for more books like this!

Summer Reading – Week4 Blog Holiday

Summer Reading – Week4 Blog Holiday

Taking time to read good fiction books. I love summer reading.

At Write!Canada I picked up a few books. Didn’t know what they were going to be like. I was pleasantly surprised.

Julianna by Mary Bentley-Lloydsummer reading

 

A well-written story of history and romance set in the days of arranged marriages. I couldn’t put the book down and I read at night – so needless to say later night than normal. I got caught up in the action, the faith and the characters. Social issues also dominate the story. A great read.

In Search of Truth by T.L. Wiens

summer reading

What a delight to find this book at Write!Canada. I know the author, a former poster from Under the Cover of Prayer. I couldn’t put this book down either. I finished it tonight as I sat outside in our new gazebo. A tale of a young girl driven to living on the streets through misconception and misunderstanding. I love the way she fights back to regain her love of God and her self-worth. Very interesting study in how the church can empower people rather than glorify God. A tale of truth. Loved it. You can find out more on her website. In Search of Truth.

But – and I am serious about this – please email me at any time. I love to get prayer requests, questions, thoughts, and anything else you feel on your heart.

Email me at Janis.

I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.

What I Want to Learn about Prayer

What I Want to Learn about Prayer

by Janis Cox

renew---Acronym

I started Under the Cover of Prayer in 2010 because I felt God calling me to bring pray-ers together; to teach more about all the facets of prayer; and to make me a better pray-er.

He has done more than that. He has built a community, what I have started to call a Tribe of Jesus. I have started to use something called a hashtag (#) which helps people locate everything to do with this blog. I am using:

#TribeofJesus

#UTCOP

I have read many prayer books. I study the Bible. I focus on what I hear and see.

Today’s reading from Oswald Chambers really struck me.

How does God view our prayers and our pray-ers?

Worship and intercession must go together, one is impossible without the other (Oswald Chambers, March 30)

And from the Bible:

Your attitude should be the same as Christ (Philippians 2:5, NIV).

Now that makes me think long and hard and ask myself some questions.

      • Am I pleading without being with the mind of Christ?
      • Am I thinking of myself and my feelings, and my agenda when I pray?
      • Do I question God and ask how can I do this?
      • Do I let tell Him, ‘it is impossible’?
      • Do I decide for Him whether something will work or not?

Oswald Chambers says we need to aim to:

live in a holy relationship with God … having such intimate contact with Him that we know His mind about the ones for whom we pray.

For that reason I need a blogging holiday – not just one week, but at least one month away from blogging.

relationship-with-God

Please pray for me while I take this time to renew, refresh and rekindle that intimate relationship that I crave.

From April 10 – May 10th. I want to R.E.N.E.W.

renew---Acronym

If you need to contact me during this time please email Under the Cover of Prayer.

Prayer:

Lord Jesus, you have told me to take this time away to renew. Please help me to hear clearly what is important to you. In Your name, AMEN.

Blessings,

Janis
