What do you pray about on a daily basis? It’s probably common to most Christians to pray for God to guide them, protect them, and help them be successful in their endeavors and activities of the day. However, in the verses above from John 14, the aim of prayers that Jesus answers is to magnify the name of Jesus. This expresses Psalm 70:4. “Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; And let those who love Your salvation say continually, ‘Let God be magnified.’”
Introducing The Spirit of Elijah Ministries
The Spirit of Elijah Ministries mission is to build the Kingdom of God and the local church by equipping men and their families to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. This mission is accomplished through speaking at men's, family, and couples' retreats, church conferences, homeschool conventions, as well as through audio and video resources and printed materials.
Listen as Norm Wakefield explains how the purpose of this ministry is grounded in scripture - particularly Malachi 4:6 and Romans 1:16.

“Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. If you love Me, you will keep My commandments” (John 14:13-15).

"Three years ago at the Teach Them Diligently Conference in Omaha, NE my son and I met you. At that time his dad had just left us and was living a very immoral lifestyle. You gave us two resources: Teenagers 101 and Equipping Men. We have just finished those two and have been reaping rewards from the wisdom gleaned! We can not thank you enough!
