BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

A Prayer For Our Nation

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free. Amen!'

With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation Under God!'

PRAYER RETREAT

We took some time this week to drive around Arizona and pray for God’s Will to be done in Arizona.  We spent one night in Mayer at a rustic inn where we were able to meet with other Christians for a time of fellowship and prayer.

After a hike and a good night’s rest we headed east towards Pinetop on Hwy 260.  We could surely feel the Lord’s presence.

We arrived in Pinetop and it was very apparent that Fall is right on our doorstep. 
In fact, it’s here

We could see the trees starting to change color as the Lord is starting to paint His beautiful colors across the landscape.

Have a blessed week.

A TIME OF RENEWAL

102_5790  

    Last week was a time for a short get-away. We made our way over to the Colorado River, crossing over into California at Parker, AZ.  With a visit to a small church in Hinkley, CA.

It was a time of renewal, …a time just to get away for prayer.
