The genesis of Nexus Prayer began a little over a year ago (August 24, 2015 to be exact), when I felt led by God to begin a personal, daily, and year-long study and prayer of Psalm 46, with particular emphasis on verse 10 … “Be still, and know that I am God.”
Little did I realize that day the exciting spiritual journey I would embark on as I conducted my (literally) 365+ consecutive days of research and contemplative prayer practice of this popular, controversial, and frequently misunderstood verse from the Book of Psalms. What today is known as Nexus Prayer is the result.
I often refer to nexus prayer as “The Nexus Prayer Project”, but the truth is I’m the project! Day by day, week by week, month by month, and year by year God has gradually been transforming me from the inside out as I have learned to listen to His still, small voice through Nexus Prayer. And God can do the same for you!
For phase one of this project, I came with two main objectives: First, make an intentional and more intimate daily connection with God and, secondly, discover the breadth and depth of the meaning supernaturally embedded in Psalm 46:10. Although the first phase of the Nexus Prayer Project was completed on August 24, 2016, I have continued my daily study and prayer practice every day since with no plans of stopping. The truths to be gleaned from those eight little words at the beginning of Psalm 46:10 simply cannot be exhausted, and the spiritual benefit I have gained from being still with God each and every day of the past year has been immeasurable.
“Today, I invite you to ‘be still’ and join this journey of quietude with me.”
The second phase of this project includes plans for the expansion of this website, an eBook, a “real” book, podcasts, videos, photo gallery, synchronized prayer cells, local prayer groups, workshops, presentations, gift shop, and more!
Working simultaneously and in coordination with the other phases, the third phase of Nexus Prayer is (God willing) the formal organizing of Nexus Prayer into a non-profit ministry of prayer. Meanwhile, the immediate objective is the forming of small prayer groups online, locally, statewide, nationally, and internationally following the biblical model of making disciples first in “Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the uttermost part of the earth.” Acts 1:8
God only knows. Soli Deo gloria!
So, thank you for visiting this website. I invite you to return here often to participate in this work in progress. Along the way, I hope you discover just as I have the personal and life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ that is available to you by simply being still and knowing God through nexus prayer.
