Peter DeHaan, PhD, writes about biblical spirituality. He urges Christians to push past status quo faith and reexamine their spiritual practices.

Many people feel church let them down. Peter seeks to encourage them as they search for a place to belong.

He’s not afraid to ask tough questions. This sometimes makes religious people squirm, but he does this out of love to encourage them to become more of who God intends them to be.

Peter earned his doctorate from Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary, awarded with high distinction.

I know this will irritate some people, but I don’t believe in writer’s block.

When you have a job, you get up in the morning and go to work, whether you feel like it or not. You push through and do what’s expected of you and what you’re paid to accomplish.

Writing is my job. I get up, and I write. Sometimes (most times), it’s easy and the words flow—good words. Occasionally, it’s harder to connect the right words together, and they don’t flow as fast, but I do it anyway because it’s my job.(less)

My Favorite Prayer in the Bible

My Favorite Prayer in the Bible Discover How God Reacts to the Prayer of Jabez

Last week I wrote about The Most Dangerous Prayer in the Bible, at least the prayer containing the most risky line. It’s a reminder that we must forgive quickly and fully.

Now let’s look at my favorite prayer in the Bible. It’s the prayer of Jabez, found in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10. It’s a prayer I say most every day....

Grace Gayle Thank you for your friendship Peter
After burning out from nine years of a difficult ministry in an Ontario Housing complex, and the deaths of my father and brother, I plunged into the deepest, darkest hole you could imagine. As anger, fear, depression and loneliness engulfed me, I poured out my emotions.
God, who are You?
God, if You love me, show me.
God, why didn’t You protect me?
Our Ministry specializes in helping individuals heal from, Depression, Oppression, Low self- esteem, Codependency & Emotional Wounds.
