I hope you read my last blog as it told you that Praize needs financial increase. I know that many are having this same issue these days, but if you want to see Praize continue, I would ask you to take a part by doing two simple things: 1. Pray and ask the Lord how much you should donate to Praize, then hit the Donate button and send the amount ...

Even Before

Authored by nomorechains on Sun, Aug 26 2012 - 03:45 PM

I Am the Even Before God Even before the stars had a name, I knew your name.   Even before you were knitted in your mothers’ womb, I knew everything about you.   Even before you took your first step, I charted the course of your life.   Even before you called me LORD, I sent my Son.   Even before you called me ...

32 Years

Authored by robertcarley on Mon, Aug 20 2012 - 08:05 AM

I was chatting yesterday with some friends about if you were to pick a past time to live in what would it be. One said they wanted to be a knight , another chose to be the lady of the manor in Downton Abbey . I said my time would have been in wartime Britain around the time of the American soldiers being based there. I know it was a time of mixed ...

As they read how they have done they will be frantically totting up the points and just like any game show points mean ...

Sometimes life throws you a curve. When we acquired two years ago, we were full of excitement and confidence in what God was going to do. Today we come to say....   We need a miracle. We repeatedly told you that the Lord had said that every member could afford a penny a day. If every member had even sent in a dollar, we would ...

This week really got away from me. I don’t know if it was the holiday or the heat or the rain or a combination of all three! LOL  Anyway, there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus or, in the vernacular, it’s all good! In the last several blogs I have discussed the Praize home page, and I hope all you new members will go to my blog ...

My Carriers

Authored by robertcarley on Thu, Jul 12 2012 - 06:54 AM

You know when you dream, now I don't mean the in bed asleep dream or the some day in the future dream. Well maybe this only happens to men but the "hail the hero" dream the "you saved the day" dream the "if it wasnt for you" dream. The ones where the crowd parts and everyone's head turns to you someone points and then before you know where you are ...

A Piece of Uganda

Authored by robertcarley on Tue, Jul 10 2012 - 01:19 PM

Sometimes when I sit down here to say whats on my mind I head off in a completely different direction than I had intended. So today its a completely wet dull and autumnal day. Yesterday was like a traditional hot buy me an ice cream kind of summer day. So what a contrast. When it gets warm I love the smell of the rain drying out on the grass. Its ...

By doing so, you will get a good idea of what Praize is all about. None of my blogs are long, so it will  only take you a few minutes. Today we are up to the middle of ...

  It's funny how life takes twists and turns that we just dont see coming. Just when it seems to be the way we dreamed it picks a side road that leads us through suburbs and neighbourhoods of sadness and hurt despair and loneliness poverty and Ill health loss and confusion in fact it's a route that we would never knowingly choose. ...

Up From The Bottom of The Page

Authored by praizeop2 on Tue, Jun 19 2012 - 09:41 AM

praizeop2's avatar

The past two weeks I have shared about the bottom of the Praize home page. It is VERY important, and I wanted to make sure it wasn't overlooked.   Up one step from the bottom of the home page, above the Categories, is a Google ad. Now that Google ad may seem trivial to you, but it is important to us.  If you don't feel that you ...

A Son's Memory

Authored by robertcarley on Sun, Jun 17 2012 - 08:41 AM

Options Bob Carley   I've shared this thought before at many seminars and conferences and in church but for the day that's in it I thought I'd put it here as a salve to someone's hurting heart. I was blessed to be raised by amazing parents. Both seemed to find a happy rhythm and natural responsibilities and I never heard them mention ...

A Father's Thoughts

Authored by bobcarley on Sun, Jun 17 2012 - 07:51 AM

Well it's 7am and I've been lieing awake forvan hour thinking! Now early morning thinking can be very scary because it seems to go at a breakneck speed. Probably because the highways of thought have not yet been filled with the traffic of duty and the commuters from the memory suburbs. It's a clear run no accidents of hurt or offence no regret ...

Since we have so many new Praize members signing up daily, I thought I would run over a few things: 1) Your content counts. Really, the only reason for you to have a membership on Praize is so that you can participate. And every time you post a blog or comment on a teaching, it helps our ratings. Of course financial donations count as well as ...

  Sometimes we can overlook the simplest things. Last week’s Spotlight was to remind Praize members to update their personal email address.  Okay, simple enough, right?  Then I got this precious comment: “How do I do that?”  I’m sorry, I just had to chuckle… of course I should have given ...
