Ephesians 4:11-12 reads, “It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of…Continue

The Bible describes prayer as “Standing in the Gap” or “Bridging the Gap” the channel through which God’s will is brought to earth. We are going to look in God’s Word to see some examples of people he used to stand in the gap so his purpose could be accomplished.
God chose or appointed Moses to stand in the gap between His people, the Israelites and Pharaoh. Esther stood in the gap for her people, the Israelites with prayer and fasting when…Continue

“It happened that while Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He had finished, one of His disciples said to Him, "Lord, teach us to pray just as John also taught his disciples." Luke 11:1 NASB
Do we know how to pray as we ought? According to the bible we don’t. Since we don’t know how to pray as we should the Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit intercedes for us. The fact is, no one can teach us to pray but God. Others can give suggestions and advice, but no…Continue

In Genesis 18 We see Abraham visited by the LORD, three "men" Abraham recognized. Quickly he prepared food for them. They told him that Sarah would have a child by this time next year. In verses 16-21 these who represent the LORD were leaving and stopped just far enough away so that Abraham could hear them speak about Sodom. The three wanted Abraham to overhear so his heart would get in line with the heart of God. Abraham began to intercede for Sodom vss 22-33. God placed the city of…Continue

Jesus tells Peter that we should forgive people 7 x 70 times, then he teaches about a servant that owed 10,000 bags of gold. This servant could never repay the debt he owned, that was the point of the story, we owe way too much to God and we cannot pay it back. We need mercy and forgiveness. Thank God for the forgiveness we walk in as believers in Jesus. But Jesus also calls us to be givers of forgiveness. The servant who owed 10,000 bags of gold would not forgive another servant for 100…Continue

I fast from Breakfast to Dinner on Tuesday. I would like to post a few thoughts on what God is showing me. Today, God has shown me for the need for prayer for our nation. We need renewal in the Church and the revival in the nation. I also believe, Joel 2 has a prophetic component for the nation. He longs to restore, but only if we have a solemn response to what God shows us.

The news is filled with stories of people from the Arabian Peninsula who have developed a reputation as terrorists. Some would call them enemies.
Jesus commanded us to pray for our enemies. To pray for our enemies is to pray for them the way Jesus did: to pray that they would find forgiveness as they repent and discover the mercies that are new every morning in the Messiah.
The Messiah did not die in a way that seemed noble. But His nobility was vindicated…Continue

Prayer is necessary because it energizes our heart, it releases God's blessing, and it results in real change on the earth. But we have been too polite with God. I do not mean we should be irreverent; I am saying the Lord's Prayer is not a weak, pleading prayer. There is a time to plead with God, but what Jesus gave was prophetic. There is not a “please” in it. Indeed, it’s the Father's pleasure to give us His kingdom (Lk 12:32). Thus, Jesus…Continue

I confess that sometimes I fall asleep while praying on my bed at night. I have often felt guilty of this, especially when I wonder how excited God is about my prayer, when I can’t even stay awake to complete it. On other occasions, I feel OK with it, since sometimes God responds to my prayer while I sleep, and I awake refreshed, with a new answer. After all, the Psalmist says that God, “Shall neither slumber nor sleep” (Psalm 121:4). Furthermore, since God is awake while we are sleeping,…Continue
