The glasses we wear change everything about us. . .
Did you know that each one of us wears glasses? Even if you have 20/20 vision, you wear worldview glasses, a particular set of lenses through which you view the world and interpret life. For example, how do you see God? Is He loving, relational, cruel, distant, or maybe just imaginary? And how do you see yourself? As a good person who is in control, happy, and living with purpose? Or instead as insignificant, lost, or broken? The answers to these questions have life-changing implications and deserve careful consideration.
The good news is, you can change your glasses. . .
Using concise chapters, reflective poetry, and thoughtful study questions, Michael G. Garland invites you to see the world through a different set of glasses. While exploring the Christian perspective, The Glasses We Wear will challenge you to examine closely the lens through which you see God, the world, and yourself.

The idea that ‘Prayer is a key’ to revival does not tell us how to pray or the important basic things that we must grasp in order to live a transforming and influential prayer life. On the other hand, the keys of prayer lead us to the practical things that help us to pray, and what we must do to teach or to learn about prayer. This is a teaching on the keys of prayer with living examples of how prayer is a key. This method makes teaching or learning about prayer more powerful and practical.
‘Prayer is a Key’ gives enthusiasm and encouragement but it does not give a foundation on which to build a life of prayer, and enthusiasm that does not find a foundation does not last long. In order to continue, it needs enthusiasm to be continually aroused, but the foundation, which is learning about the keys of prayer, even if enthusiasm is not aroused, produces the fruit of enthusiasm and encouragement.

It would be good that all the LORD’s people were prophets and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them! – Numbers 11:29
In the church today, we have everything buttoned up perfectly. The music is flawless, the sermon well-prepared and smoothly delivered, and the grounds meticulously kept. People come on time and go home on time. But a fundamental element is missing. The business of church has undermined the individual’s need to truly live for Christ, so much so, that only a limited few are seeing their life impact the world.
Dwight L. Moody takes us deep into Scripture and paints a clear picture of what ought to be an individual’s life for Christ. The call for each Christian is to become an active member in the body of Christ. The motive is love for the Lord and our neighbor. The result will be the salvation of men, women, and children everywhere.
