The most powerful praying is when we are rooted in the "Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love" of God. In this praying we hear the Lord singing over us and we see how he wants us to partner with him to repair our world! David Holland author of Praying Grace, and Praying Grace for Women joins the team for a conversation about what this kind of praying looks like. First, for so long David felt unqualified to come to God, that he had to clean himself up first, he was trapped in try-harder Christianity.
Then, intimacy in prayer only happens when we know God accepts us as we are, not as we should be. Next, when we are confident of God’s love for us we’ll hear him speaking to us. “But how can I know it’s God speaking?” Then, Perry has a family member who has suffered all his life and he’s only gotten worse. Perry asks David for some help. Next, how can we pray in bold faith without getting into “name it, claim it.” Finally, renewing your mind in God’s word is crucial to life-giving prayer.
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
Perry and Shawna Mornings helps start your day with heart-to-heart conversations, compelling guests, and songs reminding you that you are Abba’s child! You have been blessed to be a blessing, and you have been loved to share Jesus’ love!
