Thankful For Your Prayers!

Thankful For Your Prayers!

This time of year, the holiday season, and more specifically, Thanksgiving, it’s good for us to consider back over the year all of the wonderful things God has done. It’s important to remember them, to be thankful for them, and to allow them to grow our faith. Because of this, we want to share with you all a wonderful work God has been doing in the schools in Fredericksburg.

Answered Prayer Series Part 1

Answered Prayer Series Part 1

This week we are starting a new series on Answered Prayers. We have focused a lot lately on what to pray for and the importance of prayer, but it behooves us to meditate on prayers that we are blessed enough to see the fruits of. Reading of God’s providence can often be a source of encouragement and faith strengthening.

For Your Name, Lord!

For Your Name, Lord!

Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, But to Your name give glory, Because of Your mercy, Because of Your truth. Why should the Gentiles say, "So where [is] their God?" But our God [is] in heaven; He does whatever He pleases. Their idols [are] silver and gold, The work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they do not speak; Eyes they have, but they do not see; They have ears, but they do not hear; Noses they have, but they do not smell; They have hands, but they do not handle; Feet they have, but they do not walk; Nor do they mutter through their throat. - Psalm 115:1-7

. Ripe for a Revival: Conditions before the Greats

. Ripe for a Revival: Conditions before the Greats

  From the Answered Prayers Series

Dire seems our condition. Our society trudges on in stubbornness and fierceness, yet fearfully disoriented. Our education has gone awry and somehow in the pursuit of higher education, it appears the generation here, coming, and on its way out, has suffered in a lack of it. Morals are disintegrating before our eyes like the faint wisp of a dandelion seed, desperately we grab for it and urge others to do the same but to no avail. There appears to be some sort of value to life, due to laws set forth; yet the laws set forth add to the degradation by advocating the extermination of the more precious forms of life, the unborn. Adding on to the increase of suicide and depression.

The Lord Stirs the Heart

The Lord Stirs the Heart

In the historical books of the Bible, we learn that God is intimately involved in history and the destiny of nations. We discover an inspired historical record that encourages us to believe that God can and will answer our prayers for America. In the Book of Ezra, for example, we read that God inspired King Cyrus of Persia to urge the Jewish exiles to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple that the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar had destroyed some seventy years earlier.


“Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying, Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah. Who is among you of all His people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel (He is God), which is in Jerusalem.” (Ezra 1:1-3)

Becoming a House of Prayer

Becoming a House of Prayer

When Jesus entered the temple everything changed! He drove out all that was keeping His house from being a house of prayer. After He finished, the blind and lame came and were healed! 

When His house is filled with His Presence there is life, light, power, and healing flowing!

Overcoming the Powers of Darkness

“We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” - Eph. 6:12

 
Many Christians can quote this verse from Ephesians from memory, but as God’s people do we fully understand it’s meaning in the depths of our hearts? 


These principalities and powers of darkness are real, and they are ruled by Satan himself. Satan and his army are working continually to destroy you — to destroy God’s people and to hinder the kingdom of God from advancing on earth. They seek to kill, steal, and destroy!

Continuing Steadfastly

Many Christians across America spent weeks and months praying for the midterm elections; many spent time praying that the righteous would be exalted and that those who are ungodly would be removed from positions of authority. The midterm election results were not what many had hoped for, and it may seem that our prayers were not heard or answered. 

Because we don’t see all that God sees, we often don’t understand His ways or His decisions. We might not understand why He didn’t answer our prayers according to how we wanted or expected. We may get discouraged and think we have lost ground.

A CALL TO PRAYER IN 1976

The following was written by Bonnie Barrows in 1976. This powerful message fell on deaf ears more than 30 years, but may the call at the end of the article move our hearts today

The greatest threat to spiritual awakening in America is Christian withdrawal.

Though 2 Chronicles 7:14 promises “healing to the land”, many of God’s people wag their heads in unbelief, questioning whether the land can be healed, or even should be. Twentieth-century prophets of gloom predict that America is beyond hope, beyond faith, beyond mercy. 

This negativism has caused many to turn their backs to the spiritual, social and moral issues facing our nation...to walk away from involvement with a “what can I do about it” attitude.

"After all, isn’t this the way it will be in the last days? Isn’t this just a sign of the times? Let’s eat, drink, and be merry...the Lord is coming soon!”

Two Ways of Praying

The following is an excerpt from Kneeling We Triumph by Edwin and Lillian Harvey. ​​​​​​​​

 

There are two ways of praying. One asks and hopes; the other craves and waits until he has obtained. It is just this “until” that characterizes the latter.

 

One seeks God and finds Him; the other strives with God and triumphs. The first observes scrupulously his daily devotions; the second stays on his knees hours a day, through the night.

Releasing God's Power

Recently, I read a testimony of a pastor who before he was converted was a Satanist. He shared that as a satanic high priest he was most effective when believers were prayerless. He said he could gain position in the spiritual realm against those who were not praying. On the other hand, he said when Christians were praying it stopped his evil plans in their tracks. He said he always knew in what cities and neighborhoods Christians were praying. He had less power in cities where God’s people prayed.

 

Why did he have less power? When God’s people pray His power is released.

 

Prayer does not release some mere force of man or nature. Prayer releases the immeasurable wealth and power of Almighty God!

 

“Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” (Jer 33:3)

PRAYING FROM THE DEPTH

The book of Jonah is a little book with a big message for us, even today. It is the story of a man who was disobedient to the Lord and ended up in a hopeless situation. His disobedience led to great darkness and despair in his life with absolutely no hope of being saved by natural means.

Because of our disobedience America, like Jonah, is in deep darkness and there is no hope of being saved through any man or political party. God is our only hope of salvation!

PRAYER THAT MOVES GOD’S HEART

The past few weeks we have been mourning the loss of Billy Graham but also rejoicing knowing he is reaping the rewards of his labor. His ministry and preaching has probably in some way impacted every one of us, and his influence has affected our nation in incredible ways. In the Bible when a great leader passed away, often it was a sign that God was going to do something new, like in the case of Moses and Joshua.
 

Recently I heard it prayed, “Lord raise up 1,000 Billy Grahams!”

 

May it be so! I believe that God wants to raise up 1,000 Billy Grahams. He is looking for those who have come to know Him, through whom He can do great exploits! Many of us made the Daniel Resolution recently. As we seek Him daily He not only wants to visit us, but He also wants to use us. In Scripture, we see that there is a type of prayer that moves God’s heart and moves Him to respond.

PERSEVERE IN PRAYER!

Psalm 60:11 “Give us help from trouble, for the help of man is useless.”
We have always believed the only answer for America is a revival. There is no hope in one man or in a political party. Godly men and women in office is a blessing, but it is not the answer for our state or nation. Only God can change the hearts of the American people. 
Much of the good our President and the God-fearing leaders in this administration as well as those in our local governments do can merely be undone by others after them who do not have a fear of God. A revival that transforms the hearts of the people is the only answer! 
In recent months it has seemed that many of God’s people were growing comfortable again and no longer feeling the need to persevere in prayer. Perhaps the results of the recent VA elections was what this state needed to bring us to our knees once again. We cannot afford to be comfortable when our nation is so far from God! We cannot afford to be comfortable when our nation is one of 26 nations, out of 195 nations in the world, that allows gay marriage; or when our nation is one of 7 nations in the world that allows abortion after 20 weeks; or when as a nation we have killed approximately 60 million babies and continue to abort over 3,000 babies a day; or when our tax dollars are being spent on reassignment surgeries and our society is beginning to see transgenderism as acceptable. Our nation is in dire need! 
The spiritual battle is raging over our nation. The powers of darkness are fighting continuously to destroy America. We as God’s people cannot afford to sit back and grow comfortable. We do not fight against flesh and blood, but rather we fight against the principalities and powers in heavenly places!  
Some battles in this great war will be lost, but we must never forget that the battle is the Lord’s, and He will be victorious because in spite of apparent setbacks the war goes on!  
In Deut 20:1-4 the Lord shows us His battle plans: 
“When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the Lord your God is with you who brought you up from the land of Egypt. So it shall be, when you are on the verge of battle, that the priest shall approach and speak to the people. And he shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel: Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; for the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’”
The key to winning the battle is battling under the Lord’s banner! If He is with us, who can be against us? We may lose some elections, but that does not mean the war is lost! 
Gideon and his small army of 300 men defeated an army that was as numerous as locusts ONLY because the Lord was with them! The presence of God was with them causing the enemy to fall back and perish before them! 
This spiritual war over our nation will only be won through those who are seeking the Lord with all their hearts, being filled with His presence, and standing up for righteousness no matter the cost — those who are persevering in prayer until revival falls on America! 
William Wilberforce once said, “I must confess equally boldly that my own solid hopes for the well-being of my country depend, not so much on her navies and armies, nor on the wisdom of her rulers, nor on the spirit of her people, as on the persuasion that she still contains many who love and obey the Gospel of Christ. I believe that their prayers may yet prevail.”
We should not be discouraged by election results. As part of the army of the Lord let us press on and fight as never before through prayer and fasting — seeking the Lord with all our hearts! If we are faithful in this, our prayers WILL prevail!

The Value of the Presence of God

We read in Jeremiah 52 that after Jerusalem fell into the hand of the enemy, one of the first things the enemy did was to destroy the House of the Lord and rob anything of value.

Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

Recently, our nation has been experiencing distress. There was the protest in Charlottesville, with racial tensions rising, unprecedented and catastrophic flooding in Texas due to hurricane Harvey, as well as terrible destruction from hurricane Irma. We have also heard distressing news of a grade school in California holding a gender-change ceremony for a kindergarten boy wanting to become a girl.

A Call to Return

Today, we are in desperate need of a revival. This revival must begin in the church which will be what will make a difference in our nation. Sadly, the church in America is known around the world as a lukewarm church. For so long we have run after other things that do not satisfy resulting in a spiritually bankrupt church which is why our nation is spiritually and morally bankrupt. 
In Jeremiah  the Lord said, “For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.” God’s people exchanged their love relationship with the Lord for other things they thought would satisfy them. In reality they were dying spiritually from a lack of living water and were spiritually and morally bankrupt while being taken into captivity! 
Throughout the book of Jeremiah we see that despite God’s people committing these two evils, the Lord, in His great mercy and compassion for His people, sent His prophets over and over to call His people back to Him. He longed for them to see their need for repentance and return to Him. At this point God’s people were living in partial captivity, and the message to them was turn back to the Lord in repentance and obey Him, or the end would be total captivity. 
In chapters 3 and 4 of Jeremiah we see the Lord was crying out to His people… ”Return and I will not cause My anger to fall on you for I am merciful.” “Acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against the Lord.” “Break up your fallow ground and do not sow among thorns.” “Circumcise yourselves to the Lord and take away the foreskins of your hearts lest My fury come forth like fire because of the evil of your doings.” “Wash your heart from wickedness that you may be saved.”
Despite the warnings, God’s people refused to listen and turn back to the Lord which resulted in the sword, famine, and pestilence — a complete giving over to their enemies. 
Just as in the days of Jeremiah, the Lord has been calling His people in America to repent and turn in order to not fall under greater judgment. He has been calling us to return to the fountain of Life so we can live and not die! 
By His mercy some of God’s people in America have been listening and turning in repentance. 
The Lord has commanded His people to love Him with all their heart, all their strength, and all their mind. If we are being obedient to this commandment we will be found living at the fountain of living water! 
There is an old hymn that says:
Like the woman at the well, I was seeking for things that would not satisfy. 
Then I heard my Savior calling, “Draw from the well that never shall run dry.”
So fill my cup, Lord; I lift it up Lord; Come and quench this thirsting in my soul. 
Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more. Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole. 
 
Let us pray that daily we and those we know would be drawn to Him who is the fountain of living water; so we can be revived and restored and have rivers of water flowing out of our innermost beings AND be known as a church that once was lukewarm but now has returned to her first love and is on fire for God — alive, with power flowing through her! Then and only then will our nation be healed.

When God Tarries

God told Habakkuk, “The vision is yet for an appointed time… Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come.” Habakkuk 2:3


Waiting is very difficult for most people. In our society today we are accustomed to having everything we want pretty much when we want it. Then when our prayers are not answered quickly we can wonder why.
