A Prayer for the Saint

Ephesians 3:16-21 is where we find the second of the majestic Pauline prayers, which are so befitting for us, in the Dispensation of God’s Grace.  Years ago, as I was admiring the power and grandeur of the words in this passage, it occurred to me that I should make this prayer intimately personal.  So, I ...

Question: I have a little question concerning Matthew 16:19. What I’m especially after is what that issue is when after the Lord gives Peter the “keys of the kingdom,” He then tells him, “whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in ...
