Welcome to embracethegodlife.com, the website of thoughts, writings, reviews, and sermons of Dr. Pat Hannon.
The name Embrace the God Life comes from Eugene Peterson’s translation of Mark 11:22-24:
Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything.”
