Questions About the Wise Men

Christmas nativity scenes often include three wise men riding camels and bringing gifts for baby Jesus. However, many misconceptions exist regarding the nature, timing, and role of these wise men.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A PRAYER WARRIOR?

Here at the John Ankerberg Show we know how powerful prayer can be - both personally and as a ministry staff - as we have seen God answer prayers for things that seemed impossible at the time.

Likewise, praying for others can be one of the best gifts you can offer. Lots of people share prayer requests from around the world, and we have worked to facilitate a community of prayer warriors to commit to praying for these requests. A commitment to pray for these people and situations means so much to us and to the people sharing the requests. As Christians, this gives us the opportunity to share each other’s burdens and lift one another up before the Lord, even if we have never met in person.

SCRIPTURE FOR THE WEEK

Isaiah 46:9
"I am God, and there is no other. I am God, there is none like me. "
