A4P Guest: I am 29 years old, soon to be 30. I came to the US 4.5 years ago. I was living in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I was a member of one of the Emanuel branch churches. I was in the church prayer team. When I was 24, I was in love with someone but in one of our prayer meetings, one of the guys who pray in the group prophesied on me and said, “God said this to me to tell you that you shouldn’t continue with the guy you are seeing now. If you marry him, you will face lots of sufferings and heartaches.” So, I called the guy the next day and told him never to call me. Then one of my church members relative came from America for vacation and I met him in church. Then he asked me for marriage. I didn’t like him at all and I was not attracted to his look either.

A4P Guest: Is sexual immorality the only biblical ground for divorce?
A4P: Before I answer your question, let me ask you this: Why are you asking me that question? Is it because you want to get biblical knowledge or is there a personal reason and if so, what is that reason? Continue reading My Husband Needs Counseling
We usually think that we’re the ones fighting to keep ourselves in Christ but the truth of the matter is, we are not! Continue reading Fighting for Me
Have I ever told you how much I love my husband? I haven’t, have I?
I don’t think so. Hold on a second! Let me scroll down and check.
Okay, I haven’t since the beginning of November. Continue reading Another Stupidity On My Part
A4P Guest: I am a born again Christian man. I am 22 years old, a senior in one of Universities in Ethiopia. I lead a Christian fellowship in campus. I’ve been following you, probably, since day one. I grew up in church and I don’t exactly know when I came to Christ. The only thing I am sure of is that I am in Christ, not in the world. I have devoted Christian families. Both my parents serve in the local church. I have one younger sister. I have a healthy childhood as far as I can remember. I am telling you this so you know my background. I heard many people saying, “People who have problems with porn have no healthy background and childhood history.” So, my story is a bit different. My background is good and healthy. Here is my question. I struggle with porn for the last five years. I tried pretty much everything, praying, fasting, crying and confessing my sin to brothers but I’m still in it. I sometimes come to it once a month and sometimes, every day, trying to take over my entire life. I get too obsessed with it 24/7. I love God and want to follow Christ faithfully. I have no desire to be in the world. All my visions and dreams are to live and die for the glory of God but this thing is in my life. Where shall I go? Where is my healing? I don’t want to quit fighting but at the same time, I am tired! Very tired and frustrated. Does God care? Continue reading Healthy Childhood But – – –
The LORD’s prayer is something we Christians tend to see as a creed or benediction but it is much more than that. It is actually an outline of prayers, a set of prayers that shows us the most effective way of not only to pray but also expectations, attitudes and mindsets to have when we approach the throne of the Most High God in prayer.
Let’s see for today only one line of the LORD’s prayer: Continue reading Act Like Little “gods”
Today I read 2 Chronicles 15. I mean, I studied this chapter but I also listened to the Book of Romans.
My friends, I can’t tell you how much I love the Book of Romans. It was the first book that the Holy Spirit opened my spiritual eyes to understand for the first time while I was in my bedroom in New Delhi, India, in the middle of the night. (Please don’t ask, “When?” It was 100 years ago.) Continue reading Man Forsaking God
