This is the Road to Redemption...

Hi Bryan Duncan here on "the road". I'm pretty pumped for tonights show... Cause we're Improving our Conscious Contact with God....

Anybody wanna pray with me/ CeCe Winnan




You wanna know what God wants you to do, ask him and he will gladly tell you...THats from James chapter one... Verse 5...

You're listening to the Road To Redemption... I'm Bryan Duncan and I'm improving my conscious contact with God. (whether I understand him or not)





I'm grateful for the pain in my life these days cause it's the very thing that has led me to ask God for answers and look to understand what he controls and I don't.

Gotta Love It/ Anointed

(over the intro) If I'm gonna improve my "conscious contact" with God I have to want that for myself... Ya gotta love it and that takes a few experiences with him... To see what you've been missing.

That's anointed! Gotta love it... We're improving our conscious contact with God on this show...

When I turn to you/ Bryan Duncan (over the intro) Prayer by the way isn't just you and your laundry list... There's some self evaluation involved, and spending time regularly in the Bible will improve your focus when you talk to God. Helps to know what he's already said...

The hardest part of prayer and making a conscious contact with God...waiting for him to acknowledge... Seems like...Everything is louder than God in this world... ...do What ever it takes to find a quiet place, don't forget to listen....

During the solo: Most of us turn to God because we're in trouble... We messed things up again doin it our own way.................There's no shame in turning to God for that reason... Praying only for the knowledge of his will for us and the power to carry that out...God is a savior and a rescuer!....

But we may be surprised to find that as time passes we turn to God out of a desire to be near him. We discover how wonderful he is... we draw near to him because of the joy we experience in his presence...

(End of when I turn)...

Your on the Road to Redemption, that was me, Bryan Duncan... improving my conscious contact with God...by singing my prayers Don't forget I'm walkin this road too and discovering the truth even as I tell it to you.

Feeling the same way/ Nora Jones

I used to be afraid to admit to God that I hadn't improved much since yesterday...but I think he knows that... When I'm honest with God about how I really feel and find that he doesn't abandon me there, I begin to look forward to pouring out my heart to him regularly...

Lonely tonight/ Bryan Duncan

You know God doesn't always explain everything to me, even when I give him the opportunity! I struggle with Feelings I would think God would remove if I asked him to...I've learned to turn my worry's and feelings into prayers... Do that and you'll be praying all the time...





(In the solo) Dear God...help me set aside all the hassles and noise of the world to focus and listen just to you for the next few minutes. Help me get to know you better. Help me to better understand your plan, your purpose for my life. Father help me live within today, seeking your will and living this day as you would have me.

(over the tail)

It is my prayer to have others see me as yours, not just through words but more importantly , my actions. Thank you for your love, your grace, your understanding of how I feel, your perfect forgiveness, thank you for those you have placed in my life to help me and those I can offer help to as well...your will be done not mine... In the name of Jesus, my supreme redeemer... Amen.

Now it's time again to look at Life Out of Step:

A cynic asked me once,( O.k. Maybe that was me talking to myself)...If prayer is all that great and getting to know God personally, so wonderful... why don't more people pray... Before they're in over their head in trouble...

Maybe I really don't want to hear what God has to say.... because maybe I'll discover that his will and mine are in conflict! Most of us aren't looking for advice and counsel as much as we are an endorsement for what we've already decided. Too often in my own heart, my prayer is really....Lord, not thy will but mine me done...if I spend time with God, I discover that he doesn't negotiate that often... And so, I'll just replace that relationship to God With any number of relationships or personal attachments I can find... in hopes of getting what I want first.

Problem is nothing trumps God and no one else is Him... They will never live up to all the expectations we place on them... And they certainly can't love us enough or give us peace in uncertainty...

Hard to give up our false God's it usually won't happen until our life has become unmanageable... And don't I know that...

Let's improve our conscious contact with God before things get worse.

I'm Bryan Duncan, Making contact on the Road to Redemption...

Now for a step in the right direction Consider the music you choose to listen to. It can help improve your conscious contact with God as well... Consider that in your effort to draw near to God.

Up above my head/ Kirk Franklin

I'll drop you off here for a little quiet time of your own with this scripture Be glad for all God is planning for you, be patient in trouble and Prayerful always Romans 12:12 Keep coming back, I'll leave you leaning on the everlasting arms

Leaning/Terry Clark
