Simple Prayers and the Sacred Page Reed Archer Nelson
Prayer is communication with the God who made you; Jesus Christ. As one person talks to another to grow deeper in that relationship, so we must talk to God in order to grow in our relationship with Him. Yet if we do all the talking we will get only so far in our relationship with God.
That is why it is vital for us to read the Sacred Page to hear what God has to say to us. We must have two way communication in order to grow in our relationship with God. It is my prayer that you will begin cultivating your relationship with God through simple prayers (talking with God) and the Sacred Page (reading His Word).
Seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him!
Reed Archer Nelson:
Growing up in Minnesota Reed grew up with Christian parents. They really laid the foundation for his coming to Jesus at age 19. As Reed says, "I came to an understanding that Jesus had paid the penalty for my sin on the cross and that he had created me with the purpose to love God and know God and go into all the world and help others know Him and love Him too." During his college days at the University of Minnesota Reed began to listen to Christian Music exclusively; those singers / songwriters that have had the most influence on him are: Keith Green, Michael Card, Steve Camp, Twila Paris, and Rich Mullins. After attending the Urbana Mission conference Reed transferred to University Wisconsin - EauClaire and it was there that he was heavily involved with Campus Crusade for Christ as a student and was discipled in his faith. Reed and His wife Kelli after they were married both sensed God calling them to full-time Christian work. After considering Bible smuggling, Bible translation, and overseas mission work; they went through Tentmakers Youth Ministry Training and served as Youth Directors for nine years in Watertown, South Dakota.
Reed has been on several Mission trip with youth to Dominican Republic, Mexico (twice) and to Russia with His wife on a Josh McDowell -- Mission to Russia Trip. Reed is a business owner, singer / songwriter and lives with his wife Kelli in Minnetonka, Minnesota.
Currently Reed is not performing yet sharing his music online with people all over the world. Reed encourages people to download and give copies of His music away as gifts.
