Last week I began sharing with this congregation some thoughts entitled, “REAL MEN ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE.” I kicked it off with ‘REAL MEN PRAY!’ I would like to address some things today in this article concerning men and prayer.

First, one of the tragedies of today’s culture is the fact that most Christians do not have a consistent prayer life. I did a study on surveys concerning prayer and the results were sad and catastrophic. For example, the average PASTOR – yes, PASTOR – spends around seven minutes per week praying (apart from praying for people in their flock – such as hospital visits). To break this down, it would almost be safe to say if the person behind the pulpit has a prayer life that is pretty much
non-existent, then the people being ministered to probably are in the same boat. Therefore, I want to set the table acknowledging we have a great PRAYER DEFICIENCY in America.

A Man’s Home Is His Castle

Tim and Kim Hodge


Men, we are raising the standard. Your home is your castle and YOU are the king. If you are married, your wife is your queen. If you have children, they are princes and princesses.
I’m sounding the alarm, your castle is being BESIEGED by the dark forces of this world. Let’s do something that will make a difference in the atmosphere of your castle!!! You are the PRIEST of your HOUSE; not only the king! Therefore, today, in this brief article I am commissioning you to raise the standard of your position IN YOUR HOME! Come on, man-up!
I will present you with the opportunity to receive communion elements as you exit today. I would suggest you get one for each person in your household. In the immediate future (preferably the next day or so), gather your family around. No excuses. Everyone. You are the leader. LEAD! Continue reading

PRAYER MANDATE 2012

In August 2012, I began a venture of prayer. I sensed God speaking these words to me, “Make my house a house of prayer.” We are all fully cognizant of the fact this is a ‘church’ and prayer goes on all the time during services. However, God was instructing me to turn up the level of prayer at CWOC. In so doing, we began having prayer at 6:00am on assigned mornings. I was recently going back and reading through some of my journals. I want to share with you one of my entries from that first week of prayer in August 2012.
