Touching God…knowing him intimately, communicating with him, knowing his presence. This is something we must nurture. A very important part of knowing and touching God is prayer. Prayer’s most basic definition is talking to God. Just about all religions pray in some form.
Prayer is the very lifeblood of the spirit but it is sadly the least emphasized or it is taught as just a way to get something from God. As blood is to the body, prayer is to the spiritual man. It carries away impurities, fights spiritual diseases and furnishes oxygen to our spiritual minds. Prayer tears down walls between you and God. It heals our spiritual deafness so we can believe and hear the voice of God.
This author pleads for you to put aside religion and tradition and whatever excuses you have for not believing and consider these words and PRAY. This is how we touch God and connect to Him.

True Spirituality. Just saying it brings to mind a myriad of responses and reactions, some very emotionally charged and most polar opposites of each other. It is said if you want to start an argument then mention religion or politics. I have to agree. However, I propose to you that true spirituality has nothing to do with religion. I think a big part of the problem is the messed up definition most of us have of what it means. True spirituality has nothing to do with religion or any particular set of beliefs. It is an all-encompassing view of life and not denying that things are more connected than most want to accept. True spirituality carries over into every aspect of your life. It’s not something you have to stir up, pay up or wind up. It becomes as real as the air you breathe, invisible in many ways but so real and vital to you as an individual. True spirituality is something that comes alongside everything you do, every thought you think and everything you see. It becomes a filter through which you view all things on a level that just makes sense. CLICK ON BOOK IMAGE TO ORDER.
Interview with Fernan Vargas of The Raven Tribe on my book TRUE SPIRITUALITY:
THINGS I WISH SOMEONE WOULD HAVE TOLD ME WHEN I BECAME A CHRISTIAN
This book is about things I have learned the hard way. And not just me because as I taught this I surveyed many people and asked them what they wished someone would have told them when they became a Christian. My heart really went out to them because many of the things they wrote to me were cries of pain, people really trying to live for God but struggling.
My hope is when you read these words that you too will gain new insights and understanding in how to really pray, how to really study God’s Word, understand adversity and more. I don’t claim to know it all. The words I present I present humbly, but I also present them with the power and authority of a Bible believing child of God. The truth will set you free (John 8:32). It is my desire with this book that God will use these words to set you free to be all that you were meant to be in Christ.

ARE WE MAKING THIS TOO HARD?
So many are so confused about what a Christian is and what it means to truly walk with God. It starts by having a relationship with God Himself. It isn’t about religion, that’s a man made thing; It is about relationship. It is knowing who you are in Christ. It is knowing and believing what the Bible says. When you realize who you are in Christ and what He has accomplished on your behalf then it will become natural for you to live for God. Not struggling. Not trying to pay a debt you think you owe. You will be transformed. You will be free.
So many religions have made it so difficult and many sincere people are lost in a labyrinth of confusing doctrines. Don’t be lost in the labyrinth any longer.
This book is about being free. It is the way out of the labyrinth of confusion and bondage. This book contains a series of teachings that I have given through the years. If it is truly God’s Word it will be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path not confuse us more and cast shadows over the path we are walking. Darkness is not a force in and of itself. Darkness is the absence of light. May God use this book to shed light upon your path.

“Pressley and Vargas have provided an excellent tool for getting back to our basics, for re-discovering the complexity and totality of survival. In Volume One of the Warrior Scout series, they address all the basic skills that everyone should know — water, food, navigation, etc.
But they do so in the context of the awareness that civilizations rise and fall. Why did they fall, and what can we do about it today?
These authors have provided the tools for a larger understanding, that you must have a purpose, and you must have a belief in a higher power, if you are to break out of mere mundanity. In Volume 1, they provide many keys for re-embracing our tribal roots, including protecting our own tribes, as everyone automatically did at one time. Basics of fighting and defense skills are presented — such as the Lucky Seven,– and how to use your walking stick as the tool it is.
Pressley is one of the old-timers in this field, and is highly respected for his experience, and his original thinking on key elements of survival training. Volume 1 of Warrior Scout is strongly recommended for your tribe’s training.”
Survival Instructor Since 1974
