    Maranatha – The Lord is at Hand!

    Maranatha – The Lord is at Hand!

    Deeper Christian Podcast • Episode 173
    Maranatha! 
    This statement was a mantra of the early church, translated as "Come, Lord Jesus!"
    For the early church facing hardship, difficulty, trials, persecution, and martyrdom, this cry was a hope-filled yearning of their desire to be with Jesus.
    In a similar vein, Paul in Philippians 4:5, gives a profound statement as a reminder to the Church that "The Lord is at hand." 
    Loaded with depth and life-changing truth, this statement must be understood in two ways … both holding tremendous significance for our lives today. 
    In this episode, Nathan gives an overview of Paul's statement and invites you to listen to the full-length message on the NRJohnson Sermon Podcast (https://nrjohnson-sermons.captivate.fm/listen).

    Desperate Prayer (with Leonard Ravenhill)

    Deeper Christian Podcast • Episode 171
    You may pray … but do you have a "desperate" prayer life?
    Leonard Ravenhill was a great man of God who had a passion for revival and a deep burden for prayer. Spending hours a day in prayer himself, he often talked about the necessity of not merely going through the motions of prayer, but travailing in prayer and intercession.
    In this powerful exhortation, Leonard Ravenhill uses Hannah's burden and prayer from 1 Samuel 1 to talk about desperate prayer … while highlighting the prayer lives of Ravenhill's favorite Christian prayer warriors – like Duncan Campbell, Rees Howell, John Hyde, Edward Payson, EM Bounds, David Brainerd, AW Tozer, And Robert Murray M'Cheyne.
    Be inspired in your prayer life with this message called "Desperate Prayer" by Leonard Ravenhill.

    Knowing our God and recognizing His voice is essential when we come to prayer.
    John 10 reminds us that Jesus is the Good Shepherd and that His sheep know His voice. But how can we know the voice of our Shepherd and how can we recognize Him from the other noises and distractions from the "imposters" speaking today.
    In this episode, Nathan Johnson talks about John 10 and not only how important it is to know His voice, but gives a couple of ideas on how to attune your ear to His voice.

    Do You Lack a Passion for Prayer?

    Do You Lack a Passion for Prayer?

    Deeper Christian Podcast • Episode 168
    As Christians, we know prayer is important – so we check it off our list, say a quick thanks before a meal, and maybe a few minutes before we fall asleep.
    But do you actually have a burden, a passion, for prayer? Do you long to spend time in prayer … or is it a duty a chore, an obligation?
    Pray isn't meant to be a "have to" – prayer is a "get to" – we get to spend time with the King of the Universe. We get to have intimacy and oneness with Jesus.
    In this day, as things grow increasingly more dark and difficult, it is all the more imperative that Christians rise up and gain God's heart and burden for the world – that we become passionate about prayer.
    In this episode, we discuss the importance of having a passion for prayer and look at a few examples throughout Christian history of individuals who were willing to give themselves to prayer.
    As EM Bounds so rightly stated, "These days of ours have [desperate] need of a generation of praying men, a band of men and women through whom God can bring his great and his greatest movements more fully into the world. … A breed of Christian is greatly needed who will seek tirelessly after God—who will give him no rest, day and night, until he hearkens to their cry. The times demand praying men who are all athirst for God’s glory, who are broad and unselfish in their desires, quenchless for God, who seek him late and early, and who will give themselves no rest until the whole earth be filled with his glory."
