Praying Hands image

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion-

Read Psalm 65 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

Blessed are the ones you choose and bring near. We are satisfied with the goodness of your Kingdom and the blessing of your Spirit within us.

Through awesome actions in nature you continually answer us O God of our salvation. You have provided us with a bountiful creation, with water and plentiful food to sustain us. The beauty of nature testifies to your character and the order of your rule and gives us hope and confidence in the future both in this life and the one to come.

You have sent your own Son into the world to save it and we are the heirs of his sacrifice for all eternity. You have graced us with your Spirit and our bodies have become the new temple. Let your Kingdom come down in our midst and let us become the servants you have called us to be and complete the vision that you have placed within us.

Let your Word go forth to all of the world and let every nation and people hear about your Son and the good news of the Kingdom.

Let this be the generation that rises up and becomes the church and the people who participate in the greatest harvest of all time.

Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on the earth as it is in Heaven.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Psalm 64

Praying Hands image

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion-

Read Psalm 64 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

Let us rejoice and take refuge in your Son Jesus and let all who seek to be upright through the help of your Holy Spirit exult and praise your name.

Strengthen us by your presence, let your Kingdom come down in our midst and raise us up to become the people of destiny we are called to be. Let your Word go forth to the nations and let your servants go forth in your strength with signs and miracles following.

The enemy is harassing us and bringing words of discouragement. We know that our souls are eternally secure by our faith in your Son but in this life we are left to work out that faith in the face of the evil one who wants to destroy our testimony and bring us down.

Strengthen us O Lord and give us the rest we need during this pandemic; so that we can prepare for our next battle and be successful in the vision and calling that you have given us. Let us rejoice and take refuge in the shadow of your wings and gain the strength that we need for our next task.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Praying Hands image

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion-

Read Psalm 63 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

You are our God; we earnestly seek you; our souls thirst for you; as in a dry and thirty land where there is no water. Because your loving kindness is better than life, our lips will praise you. So we will bless you as long as we live; in your name we will lift up our hands in praise. For you have been our help, and in the shadow of your wings we continue to sing for joy.

We pray that you would send down your Kingdom in our midst and let revival flood our land. Let the church rise up from its death bed and become a beacon to the oppressed and let the cities be blessed once more by a new demonstration of your Spirit. Let the hosts of heaven clear the way for our testimonies to be heard, let the enemy and his minions be held back and let a new awakening come to a new generation.

Let the church rise up once more and fulfill its calling. Let your servants flow with words of your authority and with your healing in their wings for a nation that is falling away. Let your name be preached and your gospel cover the land like a flood with demonstrations of your power bringing miracles that cannot be denied.  Let the whole nation be alive with your praises and silence the unbelievers once more.

Let your Kingdom come, your will be done in our midst and heal our land.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion-

Read Psalm 62 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

You alone are our rock and our salvation, our defense in these chaotic times; we shall not be moved or shaken. From your Holy Spirit our souls wait in silence for direction; from your Son comes our salvation. In your presence rests all of our hope and glory.

The evil one tries to take us down and destroy our families, but we trust in you at all times and we give you all of our hearts and love. For our destiny is in your hands, your plans are only for our good, for the real power is yours and you are in control of all creation in time and eternity.

We will seek your face alone and reject the plans of our enemies, the evil one has his plans of ruin and destruction but you are our hope and refuge, our rock and salvation in the midst of sickness, danger, and strife.

We will not our trust in worldly positions or riches, the acclaim and fame that is so fleeting, the power over others that makes one drunk, and the wealth offered by the world and those who the evil one has control over. By your Spirit and direction we want to become your humble servants.

You alone are our rock and salvation, our defense; we shall not be moved or shaken even though everything that can be shaken is being shaken right now. But your Kingdom cannot be shaken, let your Kingdom come and let your will be done in our midst. Let revival come in the midst of it all.

For you have already spoken and your Son has already risen to save us for all time in this life and the life to come. Our future is sure in you and to you belongs all of our worship and praise, all of our hope and steadfast love, our trust and service.

From you alone we wait in silence for your presence and daily direction.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Psalm 61

by Dr. D ~ July 7th, 2020

Praying Hands image

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion-

Read Psalm 61 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

Hear our cry O Lord, Listen to our prayers. From the ends of the earth believers in your Son Jesus are calling to you. The church is being persecuted as never before, those called by the name of your Son are being sacrificed daily by those who say they pray to you but follow a false prophet and word.

Let this be the generation that really follows the rock that is higher than us, let your Son be reflected in the church as never before. Let us stand on the shoulders of previous revivals, send down your Kingdom to dwell in our midst and cleanse us from our sins and from the influence of the evil one. Let your tent come down and dwell with us and cover us in the shadow of your wings. Let your hosts keep the enemy and his minions out and let us break through and become the church we are called to be all around the world.

You have instilled in us the heritage of former moves, the testimony of past generations which were touched by heaven and awakened in a special way. Let us begin where they left off and continue until every nation has heard of your Son and the Good News is preached among every people and nation on the earth. Let us participate in the Great Harvest, let the church rise up and fulfill its destiny.

Let your Kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Let us dwell in your presence forever and sing praises before your throne now and for all eternity.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Psalm 60

by Dr. D ~ July 6th, 2020

Praying Hands image

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion-

Read Psalm 60 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

It is only through you that we can truly be blessed in this life and the one to come.Please do not let our nation be destroyed, save us from the plan of our enemy the devil and his minions. We ask for blessing in the midst of this world-wide pandemic and social chaos instead of the judgment we may deserve.

Our nation and culture is falling away from your word, so many no longer believe. So few of our political leaders look to you for answers and protection. Yet there are still millions who believe in your Son and millions who call upon your name daily praying for revival and a new awakening in our land. Will you bring judgment instead? We ask for mercy and grace.

You have spoken of your holiness, your word directs our steps. You have set up a banner for those who love and fear you, that they may flee to it from the ruin and be saved in the midst of it all. And that banner of salvation is your Son Jesus. Will the believers go down with the rest, those of us who call your name will we see destruction also?

Let it not be so! Deliver us from ruin and our whole land from destruction. Have mercy upon all the little ones, and bring your revival all across this land once more. Let us escape the plans of the evil one to destroy this nation and let us see our finest hour instead. Let the church rise up and fulfill its destiny starting here and starting now. Let your Kingdom come and your will be done in our midst.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Independence Day 2020: Freedom Comes from God

by Dr. D ~ July 4th, 2020

United_States_Declaration_of_Independence

Happy Independence Day 2020

The following is our traditional message for the 4th of July:

Flags are flying, parades are moving, drinks are flowing, and politicians are speaking today in America.

244 years ago a message was confirmed by representatives of 13 colonies proclaiming their freedom, a freedom that was considered to be derived from God:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Much has been made of the variety of beliefs held by the founders of this country but their words and convictions remain not only on paper but also in the hearts of the people.

Declaration of Independence: The Emphasis Upon God

When it comes to the Declaration of Independence, the words- “by their Creator” were a major part of the message, the subject, and the emphasis.

Many secularists and atheists today want to de-emphasize the role of faith in the founding of this country to the point that many are attempting to actually rewrite history itself. For them, God could have easily been left out of the document with little or no effect.

But in the context of 1776, those words were the whole linchpin of the document and appealed to as the ultimate authority and source for the rights of the Americans to rebel against the King of England.

In the context of the 18th century the Europeans believed that their Kings reigned and ruled ‘by Divine right’ under the authority of God and were His direct representatives. In fact, the King of England was also the head of the church and was supposed to defend the Christian faith against heresy and all enemies. In that cultural context, to rebel against the King was tantamount to rebelling against God the Creator himself.

In the Declaration the founders made it clear that they were not rebelling against God but that the Creator was actually the ultimate authority they were appealing to saying that their ‘rights’ were derived directly from the Creator and not given to them by the King of England or some parchment or Parliament.

It was a radical document at the time and changed the whole course of human history and ‘the Creator’ was part and parcel of the Declaration of Independence and the ultimate authority appealed to in the whole process.            *Top

-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Psalm 59

by Dr. D ~ July 3rd, 2020

Praying Hands image

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion-

Read Psalm 59 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

Praise your name. Let all who dwell upon the earth know that you rule over all of nature and humanity, even those who disbelieve.

Unto all the peoples of the earth, we will sing of your strength. We will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning and your protection in the night. For you have been to us a fortress and a refuge in the days of our distress, a rock during our nights of contention.

Our enemies come against us with well sounding words that seem educated and wise but bring destruction into the lives of all those who accept them. They claim that faith in you brings violence and war. But it is the evil one that leads false prophets astray and false religions into terrorism that is the real danger to peace on the earth.

But you, O Lord, are above the false philosophies that enslave humanity and hold in derision the leaders who would come against the church and the followers of your Son. Rise up O Lord and let your Word go forth to every nation, let your servants testify and preach in every language and to every people.

Let your Kingdom come down in the midst of your church and let the believers demonstrate your power over nature and your reality in face of those who say there is no God. Let healings and miracles, signs and wonders follow all of us who believe and confirm your Word before a disbelieving and deceived world.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Psalm 58

by Dr. D ~ July 2nd, 2020

Praying Hands image

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion-

Read Psalm 58 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

We who believe in your Word naturally expect that there is some kind of justice and reward for the righteous,Yet the wicked seem to multiply and success seems to find them anyway.

The evil one reaches out to so many and seems to reward those who ignore your word and rule over their own lives seeking wealth and power at any cost. But they really are not in charge but are enslaved by the enemy who gives them visions of freedom while he chains them up according to their own pleasures and desires.But the righteous really do rejoice in this life and have your Spirit to guide them and give them purpose. And they have hope in the life to come in the name of your Son Jesus.

We pray for those who the evil one and his minions have enslaved even though they may come against us. Protect us from such who our enemy uses to try and bring us down and make our life more difficult. Blunt their arrows, and bring confusion in their camp as they come against us and try to put down your people and church. Let the truth be known, let the light shine in the darkness, and let the captives be set free.

We look for the coming of your Son when every knee shall bow and every tongue will bless his name and your word will be confirmed in every nation and everyone who ever lived will finally know the truth and true justice will become a reality.

But before that day, we are praying for your Kingdom to come down in our midst and prove the truth of your Word through miracles and healing. Let revival come to a people who are now ignoring your Word and calling evil good. Bring blessing and hope instead of judgment, sickness, and chaos to our nation.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Psalm 57

by Dr. D ~ July 1st, 2020

Praying Hands image

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion-

Read Psalm 57 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

You are exalted, O God, above the heavens, your glory is over all the earth.  Be merciful to us, O Lord, be merciful to us.  We take refuge in the shadow of your wings, we will take refuge till the storms of destruction pass us by.

Send down from Heaven your hosts to protect us from the evil one and his minions, from his representatives among the people who pursue us and want to destroy our reputations and lives. Who want to still our voice and stop our testimony of your goodness and love.

We dwell in the midst of lions; we lie down among fiery beasts— the children of humanity, whose teeth are like spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp with words that destroy and bare false witness. Their nets are set and their pit is dug and our destiny seems to be in their hands.

Save us O Lord from such who are clever through the inspiration of the enemy and sound so true and logical that even our friends have a hard time disbelieving and even our families are among those with doubts.

But you are exalted, O God, above the heavens, your glory is over all the earth. We cry out to you O God Most High, fulfill your purpose in us. Shine your light into the darkness and let the followers of the evil one fall into their own well crafted pit and be ambushed by their own well sounding words. Let the truth prevail and bring down the the false mountain of evidence that seems so formidable. 

For you are exalted, O God, above the heavens, your glory is over all the earth. The enemy cannot stand in your presence and his minions shrink away in the presence of your heavenly hosts. Our enemies will not be able to stand before us when the light of the truth is revealed. Let your light shine into the darkness and let truth be a beacon that cannot be ignored.

We will give thanks to you, O Lord, among all who listen, We will sing praises to you wherever we go, and our testimony will continue to go forth to the nations. For your steadfast love is greater than the enemy, your faithfulness beyond the clouds and your salvation is forever. The evil one will not prevail. For you are exalted, O God, above the heavens, and your glory is over all the earth.

In Jesus name, Amen.
