A father wanted to read
a magazine but was being bothered by his
little girl, Shelby. She wanted to know what the United States looked
Finally, he tore a sheet
out of his new magazine on which was printed
the map of the country.
Tearing it into small
pieces, he gave it to Shelby, and said, "Go
into the other room and see if you can put this together. This will
show you our whole country today."
After a few minutes,
Shelby returned and handed him the map correctly
fitted together. The father was surprised and asked how she had
finished so quickly. "Oh," she said, "on the other
side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got all of Jesus
back where He belonged, then our country just came together

For The Peace of Jerusalem
Bible tells us in Psalm 122, "pray for the peace of Jerusalem,
they will prosper who love thee."
Below is seven directives to pray for Jerusalem as you pray for
their peace. I hope you will keep this and refer to it often as
you pray according to the will of God and the word of God.
Pray for Jerusalem to be the place for the "House of the LORD,"
the rebuilt Temple.
for Jerusalem to be the center of worship for the "tribes of
the LORD," not for the glory of the United Nations or Islam.
for the "Testimony of Israel:" the continued restoration
of the Jewish people to their own land. Also, the continued restoration
of the Jewish people to God through Yeshua.
Pray for the Israeli
government that they would have the wisdom and mind of Messiah in
all that they do and say.
Pray for the prosperity
Pray for the people of
Israel to receive Salvation.
with trust and peace that all of God's purposes, as spoken in His
Word, will be fulfilled.

we all remember this as we walk out our walk everyday in Christ
and Silas were in prison, bound even with chains on their feet, but
in their hearts they were free, free to worship, free to pray, and
free to praise. And as they did the power of God opened prison doors
and not only gave them the opportunity to be set free but also the
power of God set all the prisoners free. The head guard gave his life
to Jesus that night, and so did his whole family. (paraphrased....
matter what situation you find yourself in, no matter how bad your
prison may seem, remember you are free, free to worship, free to praise,
free to pray, it is a freedom that cannot be taken away from you and
a freedom that will always capture the heart of Our Father. Let us
live freely in Christ who gave His life for us.

The world can't understand him, the armies can't defeat Him, the schools
can't explain Him, and the leaders can't ignore Him. Herod couldn't
kill Him, the Pharisees couldn't confuse Him, the people couldn't
hold Him! Nero couldn't crush Him. Hitler couldn't silence Him, the
New Age can't replace Him and Donahue can't explain Him away!
He is light, love, longevity, and Lord. He is goodness, kindness,
gentleness, and God. He is Holy, Righteous, mighty, powerful, and
pure. His ways are right, His word is eternal, His will is unchanging,
and His mind is on me! His is my redeemer, He is my saviour, He is
my guide, He is my peace, He is my Joy, He is my comfort, He is my
Lord and He rules my life.
I serve Him because His bond is love, His burden is light, and His
goal for me is abundant life. I follow Him because He is the wisdom
of the wise, the power of the powerful, the ancient of days, the ruler
of rulers, the leader of leaders, the overseer of the overcomers,
and the sovereign Lord of all that was, is and is to come.
And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size. His goal is
a relationship with ME! He will never leave me, forsake me, mislead
me, forget me, overlook me, and never cancel my appointment in His
When I fall, He lifts me up. When I fail, He forgives me. When I am
weak, He is strong. When I am lost, He is The Way. When I am afraid,
He is my courage. When I stumble, He steadies me. When I am hurt,
He heals me. When I am broken, He mends me. When I am blind, He leads
me. When I am hungry, He feeds me. When I face trials, He is with
me When I face persecution, He stills me. When I face problems, He
comforts me. When I face loss, He provides for me. When I face Death,
He carries me Home!
He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time, and in every
way. He is God, He is faithful, I am His, and He is mine. My Father
in heaven can whip the father of this world, and so, if you're wondering
why I feel so secure, understand this: He said it, and that settles

English Baptist preacher
is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptance,
that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;
of whom I am chief. 1 Timothy 1:15
Newton lived to be eighty-two years old and continued to preach
and have an active ministry until beset by fading health in the
last two years of his life. Even then, Newton never ceased to be
amazed by God's grace and told his friends:
memory is nearly gone;
but I remember two things;
That I am a great sinner, and
that Christ is a great Saviour.
English minister and hymn writer
Sometimes when life seems to be getting the better of us and we wonder how much more we can take, I pray we will all look at the cross and remember there was One who took our place, who shed His blood, and who is walking with us through every trial of life.

too hard for Him, His love stretches even into the deepest parts
of our beings, He is perfect in all His ways and He desires
for you to hope in Him today. Maybe some are discouraged today,
some heart broken and some without hope, I pray the Word of
Our God will bless you and may Your hope be in HIM forever.

coworker replied, "It is like being a pumpkin. God picks you from
the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you.
Then he cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He
removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc., and then He carves
you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine
