Pray for the Worldwide Church

Pummeled with constant news about crises, it becomes tempting to simply ignore the persecution of our brothers and sisters around the world.

In a sermon at Times Square Church, Pastor Carter Conlon pointed out, “Many today find themselves journeying through this season of despair….

“As much as you know it, you’re doing what’s right. You’re trying to be a representative of Christ in this perishing world. But it looks so hopeless! Everything seems to be going the other way, and you wonder, ‘Will I ever make a difference?’” 

Turning off the Feelings

Often people respond to the overwhelming number of calamities in the news by simply lowering their eyes to whatever immediately affects them and shrugging off everything else.

I Can't Go On One More Day

 

Tim Dilena

September 6, 2018

Are you at your wits end? Do you find it hard to go on one more day? God knows what we need better than we know what we need. When we’re in charge of our own prayer requests we may be scripting our demise. Things go really bad when God lets us be god to our self. God answers like a father, not a Genie. Most of our prayer requests are telling god how we want Him to answer us, since God is our Father He does what’s right and best for us.

Pray for the Florida Tragedy

We are grieved at the senseless loss of life at the school shooting in Florida. Let us all pray for the wounded and for the families who lost their loved ones in such a shocking and unexpected manner. The Bible says that Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy. Evil seems to relentlessly march on in its most vile form. Let us engage in spiritual warfare, through prayer, against the powers of darkness in this world. We believe in the power of prayer. We believe prayer changes things. We believe things need to change. We know the God who can change anything.

Daniel Had A Window

When humanity wants to be its own God and government desires to become “god” to the people, they will attempt to pass laws against prayer. As Christians, we must not let the window of prayer be closed even for one day. It’s time to pray and press into the power of God because He desires to show us His willingness to be merciful.

My Prayer for Las Vegas

Pray for Las Vegas

 

"There is swearing, deception, murder, stealing and adultery, they employ violence so that bloodshed follows bloodshed. Therefore the land mourns and everyone who lives in it languishes" (Hosea 4:2-3a).

Let us all take some time to pray for the families grieving over such horrific sudden loss of their loved ones. We mourn and languish with them. In times like these, it is the task of the politician to attempt to legitimize ways to decrease such instances. It is the task of law enforcement to attempt new means and methods to discover and disrupt future attacks. But as people of God, we hold a power that the world cannot offer. We have a God who hears and who acts on behalf of those prayers. If ever a change is needed, it's now and prayer changes things.

Your Mission... If You Choose to Accept It

Gary Wilkerson

A month ago, I had lunch with the evangelist Nicky Cruz, and we had the joy of leading our waitress to Jesus. In turn, she asked if we would pray for her coworker, a woman with pancreatic cancer. We gladly prayed for the sick woman, laying hands on her as Scripture instructs, and immediately she felt dizzy and had to sit down.

Nicky and I could see she was experiencing the power of God from head to toe. We knew that what Jesus began 2,000 years ago is still going strong: His miracles haven’t ceased, and his healing breaks through despite the evil one’s plans to steal, kill and destroy.

Hurricane Harvey, the largest rainfall event in US history, has dumped nearly 25 trillion gallons of rain, 19 trillion on Texas. This is enough rain to cover the entire United States nearly 1/2 inch deep. To think of it another way, if the Mississippi River were emptying into Houston, it would take 18 days for it to equal the volume of rain left behind by Hurricane Harvey. It may take weeks to drain and years for the people there to rebuild.
