1 Peter 3: 12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers.

I had reached out to an author of friend of mine earlier last week. I wanted to gift her a book and needed her email address. After a quick banter back and forth, I asked her how she was doing. She said, “I’m getting ready for my son’s chemo treatment. It starts today.”

She is just one of the many authors in the past week seeking answers from the Lord. She is looking for a miracle. Another author friend is looking for a house so she can live without having serious detriment to her health. As I posted informaton about this show, more and more authors began to ask for prayer requests. Not just about writing. Health, finances, ministry, relationships, community, and so much more. My mother quotes a saying my old pastor used to say: “Prayer is the order of the day.” As child, I didn’t understand what it meant but as I type these words I get it.

My author friends and colleagues are hurting in so many ways. In this special episode of the Write Stuff, we are going to focus on your prayers and we will be praying for you.

williardWillard (Will; Sarge; Doc) Carpenter is a complex man of diverse interests. A soldier by nature he responds to people who chide him for using sir with them by saying “You can take the sergeant out of the Army but not the Army out of the sergeant.”

A born again Christian, he cautions ‘folks’ not to mistake his faith with weakness. He is not shy when it comes to going to war on principle, but shy’s away from conflict.

Mr. Carpenter does not like sports but enjoys shooting and horsback riding. he collects art and wines and listens to slow romantic soundtracts while writing. He relaxes by reading usually at night before falling to sleep.

Having spent a lifetime caring for children whether as a nurse, foster parent or father of exchange students he enjoys passing out ‘lollies’ to what he calls ‘young uns’ at his hoagie restaurant.

A romantic, he loves movies and books that take him to ‘that’ place. He adores his wife who loves sharing those interests with him. With their children grown and out of the house they enjoy each other’s friendship by traveling, watching reality TV and holding hands.

As they had done for the past 30 years they talk about everything. They love to talk. After his wife he loves his children more than his own life. He is not their friend but their father and that word to him is everything.

Will Carpenter is a faith filled family man, happily married for twenty eight years. He spent eleven years in the U.S. Army as medical specialist, army recruiter, army scout medic and clinical specialist.

He is also a retired nurse with twenty-nine years of experience in various settings to include areas of emergency medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, and child and adolescent psychiatry.

A business owner he resides near Honey Brook, Pa, an Amish community. This has enabled him to thoroughly research their deep-rooted faith and culture.

The Parker J Cole Prayer Broadcast

Parker J Cole Banner“O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name…”Nehemiah 1:11

So much has happened this summer. The world watched as the U. S. was struck with hurricane after hurricane. We watched as Puerto Rico and the Caribbean were decimated by them. Bangladesh flooded and destroyed villages and killed many more. Thousands left without homes. The ground shook in Mexico and took the lives of many. We have watched as heads of state in various countries bicker back and forth about nuclear power and weapons of destruction. Apathy has grown in our youth. Despondency in our elderly. Complacency in our adults.

In our own personal lives, we have failed relationships, painful pasts, uncertain futures, a rocky present, illness-racked bodies, lint filled pockets, unrealized dreams, wakeful nights, and tortured minds.

The hymn, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” says “What a friend we have in Jesus/All our sins and griefs to bear/What a privilege to carry/Everything to God in prayer

Often, we think of prayer as the last line of defense when it’s our first level of attack. We will be praying for all of us today. Call in at 646-668-8485, press 1 to be live on air. Or, download Stitcher on your mobile device. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/10823335.

The Parker J Cole Show — Prayer vs Meditation

Parker J Cole BannerA few weeks back we discussed how to have an effective prayer life by understanding that prayer is the BEST weapon we have in the arsenal against spiritual warfare. On today’s show, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at prayer vs meditation. Many Christians practice yoga and other forms of alternative relaxation methods. One of those in particular is meditation. However, the question is should Christians meditate? Is prayer and meditation the same thing — one with words and one without? Does it matter?

These questions and many more we are going to dig into as I talk with my returning guest Marcia Montenegro from Christian Answers for the New Age.  A former channeler, astrologer, and occult practitioner, Marcia reaches and helps to peel back the veil between the subtle influences of New Age practices and beliefs that have crept into the church and the secular world.

Tonight on the Show — Write Stuff Prayercast

prayerThe idea for this prayercast has been in my mind for a while. When it first popped up in my brain, I shooed it away, thinking it was just an errant thought. Over time, the idea began to solidify but I was still unsure. After all, I wanted to be certain it was something the Lord was leading me to do instead of a nice idea. Two weeks ago, at choir rehearsal, we had an impromptu intercessory prayer for one of our choir members going through. There are no words to describe what is it like to be aware of the Spirit in the room. Here, I knew the idea for this prayercast was definitely of the Lord and that He wanted me to do this.

Prayer is the order of the day. It’s as simple as that. if there was ever a time the Body of Christ needed to come together & pray, it’s now. For the church, for our families, for our countries.. The Bible verse from 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Often this has been taken out of context to be used as sort of a ‘bell call’ to God to give us what we want. But this verse is calling us to humbleness, repentance, & dependence on the Lord.

For this edition of the Write Stuff, we will be taking prayer requests. Although my show focuses on authors, we’re not going to hang up the phone if you want prayer.
