We Presbyterians are very mindful of trying to pray humbly and in keeping with God's will. But do you realize that boldness in prayer is an important part of humbly doing God's will?

In Ephesians 3.11f, the Spirit says that through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord we have boldness and confident access to God.

"When Billy Graham passed away on February 21, his obituary listed his age as 99," I said to my friend over a cup of coffee. "He lived to be almost 100," said my friend. "I think he did live to be 100," I said. "Why would you say that? His birthday was in November," she replied. "That's right," I said, "and November is nine months from February. If he was born in November, that means he was conceived in February. The Bible says that God knows us and calls us in the womb, and that all the days that are ordained for us are known by God before we're born.* I think God would say that Billy Graham did live to be 100."

By God's grace more women and men joined to form a team called Choose Life.

Use of the word 'compelled' has fallen away in recent decades, losing popularity in our American culture which highly values self-determination and autonomy. What do we mean when we say PPL is "compelled by the gospel"?
