What does a Second Amendment speech topic have to do with prayer? Quite a lot, actually, if you realize what prayer really is.
The problem we’re facing as Christians today is that, because so many people underestimate what prayer IS, they don’t lay hold of it or the benefits that come from using it.
No, prayer is NOT whispering platitudes or ‘positive vibes’ out to the Universe.
No, prayer is NOT the Christianized version of making wishes.
No, prayer is NOT some kind of psycho-somatic positive vision-casting or ‘mindfulness’ exercise.
It is turning your attention to the infinite and almighty God, who is PERSONAL enough to CARE about your situation and BIG enough to do something about it.
Prayer, in short, is a weapon.
But like any other weapon… you’ve gotta know what you’re doing with it. Which takes us right back to the Second Amendment starting point.
You’ll have to go to the show to see how exactly those two topics tie together, but you will not regret it.
And this is one of those episodes that — if you let it — just might reset the trajectory of your life.

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
