History, Jesus and the Easter Bunny

Bunny

It’s that time of year again for hot cross buns and chocolate! Let that Easter bunny hide chocolate eggs around my house and I won’t question why a bunny would do that, who cares?

The Power Behind Prayers

PrayingFor the sake of definition and communication, I use the word prayer to refer to behaviour that is used to engage in a personal 2-way communication with God.  In this way, prayers involve a conversation, with us talking to Him and at the same time listening to Him.

This article is all about knowing the power behind prayers; on why prayers are important and integral to our Christian life.  I want to begin by stressing the fact that prayers are so important that among all the testimonies and teachings on its benefits, none will outweigh the fact that even The Lord Jesus Christ Himself prayed during His ministry here on earth.
