Is there hope of a future, even when you screw up your life big-time?

Sure there is. Just look at the trajectory this writer of scripture took.

As bad as his failures may have been in the beginning — the guy got called out by an Apostle for running away — there’s always room in God’s kingdom for a new beginning.

Not only did this guy go on to prove himself useful in his own generation, but the legacy he left behind has literally helped billions establish their walk with God.

How big was the change? It was so complete that when this guy is depicted in Christian art, he’s associated with … wait for it… a lion.

God turned that wuss into a warrior for his cause, imagine what he can do with you if you trust Him.

Who is it we’re talking about? Listen in and find out.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
