God is always with His people

Isaiah 43: 1-7

Now this is what the Lord says. He created you, people of Jacob; He formed you, people of Israel.
He says,
"Don't be afraid, because I have saved you. I have called you by name, and you are Mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.
When you cross rivers, you will not drown.
When you walk through fire, you will not be burned, nor will the flames hurt you.
This is because I, the Lord, am your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I gave Egypt to pay for you, and I gave Cush and Seba to make you mine.
Because you are precious to me, because I give you honor and love you,
I will give other people in your place;
I will give other nations to save your life.

Don't be afraid, because I am with you.
I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west.
I will tell the north: Give my people to me.
I will tell the south: Don't keep my people in prison.
Bring my sons from far away and my daughters from faraway places.
Bring to me all the people who are mine,
whom I made for my glory,
whom I formed and made."

A Prayer for Friends

Father, I ask You to bless my friends reading this right now. I am asking You to minister to their spirit at this very moment.

Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy.

Where there is self doubting, release a renewed confidence in Your ability to work through them.

Where there is tiredness, or exhaustion, I ask You to give them understanding, patience and strength as they learn submission to Your leading.

Where there is spiritual stagnation, I ask You to renew them by revealing Your nearness, and by drawing them into greater intimacy with You.

Where there is fear, reveal Your love, and release to them Your courage.

Where there is a sin blocking them, reveal it, and break its hold over my friend’s life.

Bless their finances, give them greater vision and raise up leaders and friends to support and encourage them.

Give each of them discernment to recognize the evil forces around them, and reveal to them the power they have in You to defeat it, for Jesus already defeated it.

I ask You to do these things in Jesus’ name.

In His Love,
Your friend.

Prayer for Compassion, for those In Need

Heaven Father,

We praise and lift Your name on high because You are the Lord God Almighty. You cared for us and loved us even before we are formed. You had a plan for us, to give us a future and a hope. (Jer 29: 11) Even when we did not know You, You came to die for us and to save us. You did all this because You love us and we want to love Your people with the same compassion that You have for us. For You are gracious and full of compassion. (Psalm 111: 4)

Father, we come before You and ask, O Lord for You to give us a heart of compassion. The same compassion when Jesus had when He was on earth, we ask that You fill our hearts with.

Father, let us be moved with the compassion for the needy, for the poor, for the fatherless, for the lost and for those that are lost. Let our hearts be tender to those that are in need. Father, we know that as we give onto them, we will collect for us treasures in heaven. (Mark 10: 24) (Luke 14: 13-14)

Lord, You said that when we see those that are hungry and feed them, clothe those that are needy, take strangers in, visit those that are sick or in prison, we are doing it for You. (Matt 25: 24-40)

So Lord, we come before You, with a humble heart that You will lift the fire of compassion in us that wherever we go, we will bring Your compassion to those that are in need. And when people see us, they will know You because we carry Your love to them!

In Jesus name we pray, AMEN!

Do you love GOD?

As you got up this morning, I watched you and hoped you would talk to Me, even if it was just a few words, asking My opinion or thanking Me for something good that happened in your life yesterday. But I noticed you were too busy, trying to find the right outfit to wear.

When you ran around the room getting ready, I knew there would be a few minutes for you to stop and say hello but you were too busy. At one point you had to wait fifteen minutes with nothing to do except to sit in a chair. Then I saw you spring to your feet.

I thought you wanted to talk to Me, but you ran to the phone and called a friend to get the latest gossip instead. I watched patiently all day long. With all your activities I guess you were too busy to say anything to Me. I noticed that before lunch you looked around, maybe you felt embarrassed to talk to Me, that is why you did not bow your head.

You glanced three or four tables and you noticed some of your friends talking to Me briefly before they ate, but you did not. That is okay… There is still some time left, and I hope that you will talk to Me yet. You went home and it seems as if you had lots of things to do.

After a few of them were done, you turned on the TV. I do not know if you like the TV or not, just about anything goes there and you spend a lot of time each day in front of it not thinking about anything, just enjoying the show. I waited patiently again as you watched the TV and ate your meal, but again you did not talk to Me.

Bedtime I guess you felt too tired. After you said goodbye to your family you plopped into bed and fell asleep in no time. That is ok because you may not realized that I am always there for you…. I have got patience, more than you will ever know. I even want to teach you to be patient with others as well.

I love you so much that I wait everyday for a nod, a prayer or thought, or a thankful part of your heart. It is had to have a one-sided conversation. Well you are getting up once again. Once again I will wait, with nothing but love for you.
Hoping that today you will give me some time.

Have a nice day!

Your friend,

Do you love God? Is He your source of existence and Saviour? He longs for you each and everyday.
Without Him, we will be nothing.
Without Him, we are nothing, but

With him we can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. (Phil 4: 13)

He is passionately pursuing us. ARE YOU?

Prayer for Wisdom

Wise and Loving God,
You know how busy my life can be.
There are so many opportunities and distractions, commitment and obligations.
Relationships and personal interests that are part of each day.

Remind me in the busyness that I cannot do everything.
I cannot be all things to people.

My days filled with things to do quickly fly by and I risk merely existing rather than living.

Above all else, I want to be all Yours, Father.
I want my life to be a reflection of Your life.
To be a person of love, care and integrity.
I want to know that my life matters and that I can make a difference.

So, God, as I face today, help me make wise choices.

May what I do with this today show what truly matters to me and what I believe and what I truly value.

As I learn and live, I want to gain wisdom, not just knowledge.
A life and not just a living.
Blessed days and not just busy ones.
With Your help, dear Father, I trust and believe that I can become a person pleasing to both of us.

Give me a wise heart, to know and follow Your will and Your ways and live Your word.

This I pray in Jesus’ name, my good and living teacher.

Prayer of Salvation

Oh God, I am a sinner, I have said things, thought things, and done things that were contrary to You and offensive to You. By Your law, the 10 commandments, I see that I am not acceptable to You and I do not deserve to go to heaven.

But from Your Word, I see that You sent Your son to take my place, to take all that was in me that offended you and to take my punishment for it.

He died in my place, He went to hell for me, and He paid the full price for me. Then You raised Him from the dead totally free of my sin. I was raised with Him and I accept Him right now as my Savior. I declare that satan is no longer lord of my life, Jesus is now my Lord. I am now born from above, I am now born again. I am now a new creation in Christ Jesus, old things have passed away and all things are new. I am now saved. When I die, I will go to heaven.

God, now You are more than my God, you are my heavenly Father, and You love me more than any earthly father. I will serve You all the rest of my days.

Prayer for WCCI

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today we come before You with a thankful heart to present our prayer and petition to You in the name of Jesus and Your peace which surpasses all understanding will guard our hearts and minds through Jesus Christ. (Phi 4: 6-7) Father God, we thank You for Your favor upon every s ingle child of Yours in WCCI. We have been favored and blessed in every aspects of our life because of You, our mighty God who is awesome, wonderful, lovely, merciful and glorious.

For the coming new semester, we WCCI as the body of Christ, the bride of Jesus would want to come before You in unity and in love to cry out for more intimacy with You. I pray for every single members of WCCI to live a life worthy of the calling that we have received. Father, we know that unity in the church attracts Your favor. I pray that we will make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. For these is one body and one spirit, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (Eph 4: 1, 3-6)

Father, I also pray for extreme hunger for more of Your Words. For Your Words is our source of life and this life brought light to mankind (John 1: 4). As every day as we spend time reading Your Words, I pray that You reveal Your wills through Holy Spirit into our life. (1 Cor 2: 10). We want Your wills to become our wills.

For this coming year, we WCCI also hungry for more supernatural to manifest in Kursk. Father God, we cry out to You for healing, deliverance and miracles. We cry out for Your mercy and love outpouring in this place. We receive baldness in the name of Jesus to pray for the sick. For You have give us the authority to lay hand on sick people and they will get well. (Mark 16: 18) I pray that O Lord that we are doing all this because we love You. I pray for compassion to be enrooted in our heart especially to the sick and poor. (Matt 9: 36).

We call out for Your mercy and healing power ot be release out in people having cancer, AIDS and arthritis. You are their healer O God. We want to see manifestation of Your glory in WCCI and in Kursk. For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. We want to see Your power. So that our faith do not rest on our wisdom but on God’s power. (1 Cor 2: 5).

We commit our prayer to You Jesus and we believe that all of them are answered. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Fully depend on You

Oh Father Lord, God,

I thank You, O Father for this opportunity to pray for the move of the gifts of the spirit. Thank You for Your manifested presence in this place.

Father, I want to commit each person here into Your Mighty hands. Father, fill u s with Your anointing (1 John 2: 27) and move hunger for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I thank You for a right standing relationship with You, that we are availed to let You work and move in and through us.

Give us a heart that thirst, hungers and desires for more of You, for more of the gifts to be manifested in our daily lives. (1 Cor 12: 31, Luke 6: 21). Fill us with a reckless passion, willingness and obedience to let You use us more (II Cor 8: 11, Romans 9:16)

Let our hearts be filled with desperation to totally, fully depend on You and the leading of the Holy Spirit in our lives (Psalms 25:1-2) for He looks for obedient and willing hears, a humble heard for Him to reveal more of His Kingdom to us (Prov 11:2).

Father, we commit all that we are, all that we have to You, release us from all the bondages, yolks and burdens that we have (Romans 8: 21, Psalms 62: 8). Free us from our mindsets and limitations that we have on how You are going to move. Give us a fresh, renewed mind on the gifts of Your Spirit. You say, O Lord that all receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and that all will move in the gifts of the Spirit (Acts 2: 38). Let us remove al thoughts and take them captive, all thought that restrict the move of Your Spirit Gifts. Give us Your revelation, let us see with Your eyes into the spiritual realm (Col 1: 9) we want You to work to the maximum, let us hunger for more time spent with You and more in Your word, so that our faith will increase. Lord, that we will have the boldness to step out in obedience to let the Gifts of the Spirit move (Acts 4: 29, Phil 1: 28). That we know it is the leading of the Holy Spirit to perform Your signs, miracle and wonders through these gifts.

Lord, we want higher expectation of what You can do. We want Your full manifestation (Heb 2: 4). We want to speak Your words of wisdom, words of knowledge, we want supernatural faith, perform healings and miracles, having gifts of prophesy and to be able to discern spirits, speak in diverse tongues and give Holy Spirit interpretation (I Cor 12: 8-10). Lord, we want to see all these gifts manifested not just here but every day in our life. We do not want to be seeker friendly church but a spirit filled church. We want to let You perform signs, miracle and wonders through us.

Show us O Lord what we need to change, what we need to do, to reach that level with You. We want that encounter with You. Let this manifestation and gifts be a testimony to the people, a witness of how awesome You are. Let it be a light unto them to see that they need a savior and where light is darkness cannot be (Ps 97: 1).

All of this Father, we know that You have heard us and it is sealed and done in the might name of Jesus. Thank you Father and we give You all glory and honor, in Jesus most previous name I pray, Amen!

A Prayer for the Innocence

Dear Heavenly Father,
My heart cries out for all innocence in Kursk. They never knew that they are living in darkness. They’ve been hurt deeply and they live in bitterness. They do not know the way to happiness, which is in Christ.

Jesus, reach out to them. Save them from the corruption of this world. Deliver them from sickness, pain, hurt, poverty, troubles, hopelessness.

Outpour on this land, Holy Spirit. Jesus, turn Kursk, this barren land into a land flowing with honey and milk. Let His spirit of purity overflow and all kind of ungodliness have to give way to the move of God.

Behold the glory of God on this land. Now is the season of harvest. Now revival is taking place. Let us walk in expectation to see God move in and through us to reach out to Russians.

Father, we are the carrier of your glory. We want to realize and release your presence everywhere and claim this land for your glory!!

To you all the glory, honor and praise.

In Jesus’ most glorious name we pray. AMEN!

LOVE… the best way

1 Corinthians 13: 1-13
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance… Love will last forever!.

Day after day, thousands of Jesus’ followers toil in foreign lands to bring relief and the love of Christ to the severely afflicted and to the poorest of the poor. Through the context of their work, many of these laborers witness brutalities and suffering beyond huan comprehension.

In Africa, many people I meet are devoted to coming alongside the “least of these” (Matthew 25:40). They tell me they were moved to action by a pastor or speaker they heard, literature they read, or the lyrics of a song that opened their hearts and minds to the struggles people around the world face.

Upon entering the lands of the oppressed and the impoverished, these laborers testify that they are sustained by private devotion and corporate prayer. Worship music of deep spiritual truth also inspires these compassionate men and women to press on in their efforts to extend God’s justice and provisions to those who suffer. First Corinthians 13: 7-8, however, beautifully describes the best motivation of all for serving the needy – love. These verses aptly say, “Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance….Love will last forever!”

It’s possible you have heart 1 Corinthians 13 applied only to marriage. Today, consider how you might also apply this verse to loving the destitute. For example, how might you:
-protect someone who is experiencing a form of abuse?
-Trust God to meet your financial needs when you continue to give generously to the poor?
-Display hope as you spend time with someone who is suffering?
-Persevere in serving even when you’re feeling weary?
-Show love – unfailingly, even to someone whom you find difficult to like?

Prayerfully consider how you might display these forms of love to someone you encounter today. – Roxanne Robbins

The GOOD things

Carol, Fred and Tom had planned an evening packed with fun. The trunk of Tom’s Honda was loaded with toilet paper and flashlights – the supplies they’d need to “t.p.” Tanya’s house in honor of her sixteenth birthday.

But first they went to the school parking lot for some fun with the car. Carol and Fred jumped on the hood, and Tom steered in wild, squealing circles. It was as fun as a roller coaster – until Carol lost her grip and flew off the hood. The tires screeched and swerved, barely missing Carol, who awas lying on the ground. Her jeans were ripped, and one leg was bleeding.

“You okay?” Tom asked as he rushed out of the car.
“I think so,” Carol responded, holding her leg. “Just shook up.”

The three friends pulled themselves together, stunned by what had happened – and could have happened. Their original plans forgotten, they cautiously drove to Carol’s house to explain to her parents the stupid thing they had done.

After Carol had bandaged her scrapes and changed clothes, the three friends drove to the Wayside Restaurant to think and talk. For three hours, they sipped on chocolate malts and reflected on what had happened.

“I cant believe I was that close to … you know,” Carol said softly.
“Yeah, and I was behind the wheel,” Tom added.
“I know one thing,” Fred said resolutely. “I’m not going to take life for granted. I enjoy being here too much to let a crazy game take it away.”

It took a scary event for Carol, Fred and Tom to realize how valuable and good life is. When God ceated the world and saw it for the first time, He also celebrated how good and valuable life is. Read about the goodness of life and the world in Genesis 1: 1-31

-How is the teenagers’ new perspective on life like verse 31: “God looked at everything He had made, and it was very good”?

-What has happened to you that reminded you of the goodness and value of the life God has given you?

-rereading the passage and underlining in green every reference to life or living things. Praise God for the gift of life
-giving a flower or small houseplant or doing a chore for someone who is valuable to you. Include a note that celebrates how he or she makes your life better.

For more, see
-Genesis 2: 4-17
-Psalm 104: 1-32
-John 10:7-18
