Oswald Chambers (The Fire of Answered Prayer)
Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work.Our Lord in His teaching regarding prayer never once referred to unanswered prayer; He said God always answers prayer. If our prayers are in the name of Jesus, that is, in accordance with His nature, the answers will not be in accordance with our nature, but with His.
Real Life Change
Jamie Desjarlais"My wife's brother Sid had a big influence on me. We drank and did drugs together. Sid became a Christian and started going to church. His daughter died, and it was at her funeral service I gave my heart to God. My life totally changed that day. I didn’t want to go out drinking or do drugs any more. I wanted to stay home with my wife and my four children. We now live on the Key First Nation Reserve and we are a Christian family involved in a Christian, Spirit filled church. I attended Almond Tree Ministries Bible Institute for 2 years. Today I am an Ordained Minister, a Suicide Prevention Counselor and am involved in ministry. God has given me that love, hope, and peace that I had longed for."
Sid Keshane"I was an abusive husband and spent six months in Regina Correctional Institute. Because of alcohol and drug abuse my wife left me. She started going to church. In a suicidal state I told God, “This isn't life. I don't want this!" Eventually, I gave my heart to Jesus. In time God helped me put down the abusive me. My wife and I and family moved to the Key First Nation where I attended the two year program at Almond Tree Ministries Bible Institute. I am now an Outreach Pastor at the Almond Tree Church. I also work as an Addiction Counsellor and our three children attend the Almond Tree Christian Academy."
Floyd and Tania Keshane"We were both addicted to marijuana, drank alcohol, and partied. We were living together common law and were raising five children. In 2012, we separated. One day, while I was reading a book called 'Avoiding Jesus' I realized I was failing. I said, “Jesus, come into my life, and I will do it right.” Shortly after, Floyd also gave his heart to the Lord, too. Now, together, our home is peaceful and calm. There is no drug use, no drinking, no gambling. We got married in the church by Pastor Allan. We regularly attend the Almond Tree Church and are faithful to Jesus."
