S3, Ep. 8: The Power of Prayer

  

  

What is the power of prayer? How does prayer comfort those who are anxious or sinking into the depths of depression?

In Mark 11:2, Jesus tells His followers:

“So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

There’s immense power in the prayer of a righteous Christian.

In Matthew 18:19, Jesus says:

“If two of you agree on Earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.”

Prayer can bring you calm your fears and comfort your anxiety. Join us in this episode of Coffee With Jesus, as our host shares how powerful prayer is, and why it is so powerful. Listen and be encouraged by the most powerful tool we have as Christians: the power of prayer.

S3, Ep. 7: It’s OK to Not be OK

  

  

“Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.” (Psalm 70:1).

God is our deliverer and our strength. When times are tough, we can rely on him. With your feet firmly planted on the rock, you will not be moved, even in the fiercest of storms. While we may know this on an intellectual level, internalizing this knowledge can be tough. When going through hard times, you may still be down, stress or anxious. That’s ok. It is ok to not be ok.

In this episode, our host shares his own struggles, how he tried to cover up his stress and how talking things through finally helped him. Listen and be encouraged. Learn from the mistakes of our host and reach out to your brothers and sisters in Christ when you need help.

Know that it’s OK to not be OK.

S3, Ep. 5: Praising God in the Valleys

  

  

Hurricane Katrina took away all his possessions and left him only with three changes of clothes and a car to temporarily live in with his family. In the middle of the chaos and the aftermath of Katrina, our host was longing for God’s comfort; he just wanted to be held by the Lord.

But then something happened that prompted him to praise. Wait. What? Praise? During the storm? Praising was something he didn’t want to do at that moment, but later discovered that he needed to. 

In this episode of Coffee With Jesus, our host—Todd—talks about those moments when praising God is hard. He discusses the meaning of “a sacrifice of praise” in Hebrews 13:15-16, in part asking how can praise be a sacrifice?

Indeed, there are times when praising God is difficult; the storm is too harsh, and we don’t find the energy to elevate praises. But when we do, an infilling of strength and comfort helps us push through the storm. And we find ourselves being held by Jesus.

Listen to this episode to learn how Todd found the strength and comfort he needed through a sacrifice of praise—when praising God is the sacrifice. Listen to his account to know what happened afterward.

S3, Ep. 4: God Is ALWAYS With You

  

  

Do you ever feel like you are all alone and by yourself? Like the storm just won’t end, and the waiting is too heavy to bear?

When things don’t go well, we sometimes withdraw into ourselves. After all, it’s not easy to be vulnerable…not with others; even less with God. But when we retreat into ourselves, we may miss God’s promise in Romans 8:38-39.

In this episode of Coffee With Jesus, our hosts, Sara and Todd, talk about how they were able to experience God’s presence in the middle of emotional distress and anxiety. How did they experience God’s presence and comfort when God seemed so distant? 

They each make themselves vulnerable and share their stories, their stresses, their anxieties. They share how God was with them, even when it was tough to feel his presence, and how God did show He was with them.

Listen to this episode to discover how to avoid staying trapped by burdens and feelings that you are all alone. This episode will encourage you to know that no matter what is troubling you, God is waiting at the door for you to invite Him into your situation.

And if you need prayer, let us know how we can pray for you.

Special Episode: Coffee With Jesus Remembers 9/11

  

  

About 21 years ago, about this time, our host, Todd Uebele was sitting down to dinner onboard the USS Carl Vinson, somewhere in the middle of the Arabian Sea. One of the pilots there mentioned that a plane had hit one of the twin towers. At first, it was thought there a small plane, like a Cessna and an error by pilot.  As they were watching the news, however, our host saw the second plane strike.

A short while later, out on the flight deck as all planes were recovered and made “best speed” made going northward.  They had just relieved the Enterprise Battle Group, who were turned around and became part of our task force. Our host was immediately drafted to serve on the Admiral’s staff and watched as our Task Force doubled and then quadrupled in size.  He stood on the flag bridge and watched the very first planes launch for Operation Enduring Freedom.  A friend on a nearby cruiser sent over videos of the very first tomahawk launch.

While our host is very proud of what he did, it pales in comparison to the first responders and civilian volunteers who literally ran into danger. Firefighters, Police Officers, EMT’s, civilian volunteers. They are the real heroes and heroines. So many sacrificed themselves to help and save others.

Sometime after the terrorist attack (the first few weeks are all a blur), the Secretary of the Navy came to the Carl Vinson to address the crew. At the very end, when he looked around the hangar bay, he seemed to look at each crew member as he challenged them:  “Never Forget.”

Never Forget.
