Encouragement to Pray for Ukraine

Greetings in Christ!

Matthew 24:8 tells us, “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”

This letter is not intended to be a prophetic word about where we are in God's timetable. Of course, only God the Father knows the “day and hour” when Jesus will come again, but if we genuinely love the Lord, we look forward to that day!

Revelation 22:20 (NKJV) 20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

With that in mind, we know that while we as the people of God dwell on this earth, there will be challenges along the way. The people of Ukraine are going through tremendous difficulty at this time as Russia (primarily Putin) has declared war on them.

Pray for the Church in Afghanistan

Greetings in Christ!

Like you, I have watched the tragic events that have unfolded in Afghanistan, impacting so many thousands of people.

Among those thousands that have been affected are brothers and sisters in Christ. They are either being beaten or killed for their profession of faith in Jesus.

So many of us feel helpless to do anything to help them, and most likely, in a physical sense, that's the case. Yet, we can pray that God will give them strength like the first martyr of the Christian church, Stephen, as he was being stoned to death. Acts 7:59-60 (NKJV) 59 And they stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60 Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not charge them with this sin.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

Pray for the Persecuted Church Letter 2

Greetings in Christ!

I trust this letter finds you and your loved ones doing well, especially in these challenging times we are now living.

We are so blessed to live in a nation that protects the rights to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in a congregational setting. Yet, perhaps there are times we take it for granted that this will always be the case.

Encouragement to Praise God in Faith

Greetings in Christ!

Isn't God good? While we live in challenging times, we must also remember that God is not bound by times or seasons, and He is STILL a good God!

Praise is something that we ALL can do and shouldn't be held back just because we aren't on the “victory side” of things yet.

Often, our problem as human beings is that we ONLY praise when we see the answer, but quite often in the Bible, we see how Praise should go first!
