DRAW ME CLOSE is the Bible Teaching Ministry of Whitestone Christian Fellowship, taught by Pastor Bob Lawrenz.

We pray these messages bless and encourage you in your Christian walk. It is our desire that you draw ever so close to our Savior, our Redeemer and Lord. 

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."  Colossians 3:16

The idea that power is inherent in prayer is a very popular one. According to the Bible, the power of prayer is, quite simply, the power of God, who hears and answers prayer. 
We sometimes forget about the power of prayer and we question whether God really hears us. We wonder if He truly understands the pain that is within us. Yet the Bible teaches that He does hear our prayers, especially of those who have put their trust in Him. Scripture tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, the beginning of knowledge, and by this we know that God truly loves us and cares about what we are going through.
The power of prayer is supernatural, it does not flow from us, but comes from the omnipotent One who hears our prayers and answers them. Prayer places us in contact with Almighty God, and we should expect almighty results, whether or not He chooses to grant our petitions or deny our requests. Whatever the answer to our prayers, the God to whom we pray is the source of the power of prayer, and He can and will answer us, according to His perfect will and timing.


Jesus used the concepts of salt and light a number of different times to refer to the role of His followers in the world. The metaphors of salt and light specifically addressed the impact faithfulness should have in the world. It should illuminate and preserve. Like both salt and light, our relationship with God should have an obvious impact on everyone who comes in contact with it. Jesus isn't just calling us to be devoted, He's encouraging us to have an influence everywhere we go.
