-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Zechariah 14

by Dr. D ~ March 27th, 2020

Praying Hands image

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion:

Read Zechariah 14 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

When Your Son Jesus our Lord comes back, he will bring all the saints with him. His feet will touch down on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem and he shall rule the whole world. Living and healing waters will flow out of Jerusalem and all the world will worship him as the Lord of Host and every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Father, we are looking for that day to come soon and hope to be with him he comes. But before that day we will worship and bow before him now. We are also hoping and praying for a major world-wide revival to come soon before that day.

We are now experiencing a world-wide pandemic bringing a harvest of sickness and death along with economic ruin.  We are praying for that sickness to be healed and eradicated in Jesus name. We are looking for a different kind of harvest, one that will bring millions to You and Your Son Jesus Christ instead.

You promised to pour your Spirit upon all flesh before that last day. Let Your Spirit flood across every nation right now washing away this disease and bringing hope and the promise of Your Son’s coming Kingdom instead of the sickness and death we are now experiencing.  

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Zechariah 13

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion:

Read Zechariah 13 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

The day is coming when modern Israel will know who their real Messiah is; when Jesus comes back they will view the wounds of Your Son and finally know that he is the Savior and fountain that can clean them from all sin. Also in that day, all the idols, false prophets, and counterfeit religions will no longer be tolerated in that land and You shall be worshipped as never before.

But why wait? We would like to see as many as possible come to Jesus before that Day when he comes again. We would like to see the Gospel of Your Kingdom preached in every nation and see millions come to the truth in Your Word with signs following.

Father, we want to see a world-wide revival and harvest. Please send Your Spirit upon all flesh and in every nation and among every people group. We would also pray for Revival and a new awakening to come once more in our own nation,  America. From sea to shining sea. 

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Zechariah 12

by Dr. D ~ March 23rd, 2020

Praying Hands image

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion:

Read Zechariah 12 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

You are the great creator of all things we see and don’t see; the One who stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundation of the earth, and formed the very breath and spirit within us. We pray for and depend upon Your Wisdom in this time of trouble and confusion.

For over 70 years you have shielded the nation of Israel against all opposition and according to Your Word You will continue to do so until the coming back of Your Son Jesus. Zechariah prophesies that those in the modern nation of Israel will one day recognize that your Son Jesus; the one who was rejected, crucified, and pierced by their ancestors, is their genuine Messiah and they shall mourn for him and eventually celebrate his coming.

Your Word also declares that You will bless and also shield those who recognize him today; those who have an unfailing faith in Your Son Jesus, now and forevermore. We claim and depend upon Your promises; and we are secure in Your love and thankful for Your help in these chaotic and confusing times.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Zechariah 11

by Dr. D ~ March 20th, 2020

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion:

Read Zechariah 11 and then join us in prayer:

11 Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars.

2 Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down.

3 There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is spoiled: a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is spoiled.

4 Thus saith the Lord my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter;

5 Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the Lord; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.

6 For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the Lord: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour’s hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them.

7 And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of the flock. And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock.

8 Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me.

9 Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.

10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.

11 And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the Lord.

12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

13 And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.

14 Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.

15 And the Lord said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.

16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.

17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened. (KJV)

Our Father,

We pray for wisdom for all of our leaders. Please bless them and inspire them to make decisions at this time that will be the best for all the people in our cities, states, and nation.

We come against leaders who would betray us for the proverbial ‘30 pieces of silver;’ selfish shepherds who seek to better their own political power and economic condition in the midst of this time of emergency and trouble.  We especially pray against evil spiritual principalities and powers; the Spirits of Fear, Chaos, Sickness, and Death.   

Father, let Your Spirit flood this earth and wash away this epidemic; we pray for the disease to be replaced world-wide with an increase of faith in Your Son, hope, healing, and revival.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Our Father,

We turn to You as our hope and strong hold in this time of fear and trouble for great is Your goodness. No matter where we turn there is no one who really has answers to what is really going to happen or what we can realistically expect. The experts have nothing but questions themselves.

In Jesus name, Amen.

-St. Patrick’s Day 2020

by Dr. D ~ March 17th, 2020

Today is St. Patrick’s Day. Usually this is a day of parades, green beer, and rowdy drunken debauchery all done in the name of a historical character who was God’s evangelist to Ireland—converting the entire nation to Christianity.

However, most of the usual celebrations on this occasion have been shut down this year because of the Corona virus. 

Here’s our traditional post for this holiday- “The Real Story of St. Patrick”:

The Real Story of St. Patrick

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Who was the real man called St. Patrick anyway?

A man born into a Roman Christian family in Wales around 385 AD with a given name of Macwyn Succat. He didn’t make it to Ireland until he was kidnapped at 16 and enslaved by Irish bandits. After six years of service he heard a voice from God instructing him to escape slavery and make it back home.

He did miraculously escape and went on to study at a Christian seminary to become a Priest. Then had a vision from God to return to Ireland as a missionary.

There were really no Christians at the time in Ireland and he singlehandedly established the church in that country while refusing tribute and support from the noblemen and kings. He converted and baptized thousands of pagans, and ordained hundreds of Priests and set up an untold number of Christian communities and churches.

He is recognized by all major Christian churches–Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran, and Anglican since he ministered before the church divided into all the different denominations we have today. So Protestants have just as great a claim on him as Catholics. And those of us who have Welsh blood running through our veins have as much right to claim St. Patrick as any Irishman.

Rather than a day with a built-in excuse to get drunk, I believe that it is a day for Christians to celebrate the reality and continual miracles of the Christian faith. A day to celebrate that God continues to give visions and directions to missionaries even today.

St. Patrick transformed an entire nation bringing the Gospel to an Island in darkness. Missionaries today continue to leave the comforts of home and family to spread the word of Jesus Christ to every nation in the world.  That is the real legacy of Macwyn Succat also known as St. Patrick.                *Top

-Devotion and Prayer for the Day: Zechariah 8

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion:

Read Zechariah 8 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

Through the prophet Zechariah it was prophesied that the scattered people of Judah and Israel would be gathered back to their ancient lands and Jerusalem would be blessed by You once more. You also proclaimed that Your people should love the truth and peace:

These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbor; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:”

Father, through Your Holy Spirit help all believers in Your Son Jesus to also follow through with Your counsel here to speak only the truth to all and live in peace with everyone demonstrating Your love even to our enemies.

May You be with us also like You promised those in Jerusalem in the last days; may we receive Your blessings and protection.  Let Your Kingdom come and be a tangible reality in the midst of Your church; wherever Your people may live.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Read Zechariah 5-7 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

Through the prophet Zechariah You asked Your people to show mercy and compassion to others including widows, the fatherless, strangers and the poor. Your Son Jesus taught the same thing and even counseled believers to love and pray for their enemies.

Father, help us to show mercy, compassion, and love to everyone we come in contact with. Let us sow peace rather than division and be agents of healing and forgiveness rather than pursuing others with hate and in revenge.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Join us in today’s prayer and devotion:

Read Zechariah 4 and then join us in prayer:

Our Father,

Your counsel spoken to Zerubbabel is also good for us today:

“Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.”

And we should never despise any small beginnings that bring us closer to You.

We ask for Your Spirit to help us in all we do; particularly in all we do in Your service and in the ministry to others in Your name. Nothing we do in our own power, might , and will can be a lasting blessing for others and even for us in this life or the life to come.

May we be like Your Son Jesus and only do what we see You doing and continue to respond to Your Spirit and counsel in all that we do; sowing love, peace, joy, and healing wherever we go.

In Jesus name, Amen.
