.....An Audience With Our King

Get Ready To Pray! True Prayers Will Shake The Earth!
Genuine prayer is not a religious drudgery or dry, meaningless duty, but a wonderful delight. True prayer is actually an audience with the KING! Any one of us can and should come before the royal throne of Heaven with our request. We can come with full assurance that our prayers will be heard and responded to by Almighty God (see 1 John 5:14).

Pray in faith knowing you will get what you are asking.  This promise is given by Christ Himself in Mark 11:23-25 "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them..."

Crisis Intervention

Posted in Principles of Prayer

 A crisis disrupts lives whether it is a relationship difficulty, school or work related stress, or a health issue. We are instructed to pray at all times but it is especially important to pray during a crisis.

  • "Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints. Pray also for me, so that when I speak, a message may be given to me to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it boldly, as I must speak." - Eph.6:18-20

How To Respond to Horror

Posted in Principles of Prayer

We do not believe there will be financial answers to the problems of our age. How much would it cost to eliminate violence? Loneliness? Depression? Crimes against children? Hatred?

We do not believe there will be any technological answers to the problems of our age. Will a computer program be created that ends divorce? Will mobile devices replace the power of human embrace?

We do not believe we can elect a cure to the problems in our age. There will never be any political answers to the questions of the human soul.

Unless God moves in power...there will never be any solutions to the problems that crush our spirit and vex our soul.

We pray to the one True God for a mighty move of His great hand to address the horror of our land.

1. We weep...because evil is active in our land.
2. We listen...because there is healing and hope at the end of heartbreak and angst. 
3. We rest...because meaning can only be found in the eternal arms of God. 
4. We pray...because we believe God is ultimately in control regardless of the situation. 
5. We mobilize...because there is spiritual healing in the presence of community
6. We weep...because evil is active in our land.

We invite you to pray for and reach out in love to those who are hurting in the midst of a horrorific situation. Pray for the leaders in the city and the church who need to respond.  Wage peace in the midst of violence by reaching out to those in need.
