How to Maintain a Peace of Mind
J.P. Moreland

Description:

Stressors abound in our busy lives. Many things seek to grab our attention in any given day. Anxiety is pandemic in our society. How can we maintain peace of mind in the midst of  personal and cultural tumult? Does Christianity have wisdom and knowledge in this area? Drawing reflection from Psalm 131, this talk seeks to show how a person can maintain a particular peace of mind, which amounts to more than just mental or behavioral adjustments.

My talk integrates important insights from character and spiritual formation and biblical wisdom about how to deal with an agitated mind. When one considers what scripture reveals in this area, one can see its realism and its ability to provide knowledge of human persons that enriches how we live in the ordinariness of our lives.

On the Promises and Problems of Petitionary Prayer
J.P. Moreland

Description:

Biblically speaking, the most pervasive aspect of prayer is one of petitioning, asking and receiving. While worship and confession of sin are intrinsically valuable and biblically important to the purpose of prayer, they are not scripturally described as the most pervasive aspect of prayer.

Indeed, prayer is learning to interactively cooperate with what God wants to get accomplished by His Spirit. In this regard, prayer is a way of spiritually co-laboring with God, where we learn to persistently stay intent on "soaking" a project or endeavor in prayer under the direction of God.

Now there are at least three fundamental reasons why God will not answer a prayer:

  1. If it means that he will have to coerce someone's free will in order to bring about a request, in whole or in part;
  2. If it if means that answering it in the exact way that we want it to be answered will not be good for us or others in the grand scheme of things;
  3. Due to experiences of unanswered prayer, when we ask there is little faith and expectation of a result.

My talk at the Vineyard Anaheim addresses the above and more with both examples and further explanations.
