What is the Father’s name? God? Righteous? Father? What did Jesus have in mind when He told His Father that He knew Him and had made His name known? These last words of Jesus’ prayer are worthy of our contemplation for a number of reasons.
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.

Last month I invited my readers to make a New Year’s resolution to grow in love and to pray what I call the i-LivetoLove prayer every day. I suggested that you listen to the Holy Spirit to inspire you as you pray so that your prayer is authentic and vibrant. How’s that going for you? How has God used this exercise of faith in your life? I would love to hear from you. You can respond in the comments section, or with an email to email@example.com.

"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!
