But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture. ~ Malachi 4:2And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. ~ Ephesians 3:18

Give thanks for all the Lord is AWAKENING IN YOU!! There is power in His blood and the name of Jesus Christ. May others experience the goodness of this truth and have an encounter with the Living God in this season! Pray for our local and global churches; for our pastors to stand firmly on the Word of God.
Pray for the leaders of our nation to stand firm on God’s Word. Give thanks we have leaders that are in the Palm of His Hand! Isaiah 41:13 May they call upon Him for wisdom. May they give Him thanks for the peace and order that He brings. Give thanks for God fearing men and women serving in these positions.
We lift up our brothers & sisters & those yet to come that they may know He is present in their midst and hears their prayers. Let us pray that even in the midst of dire circumstances and even in the midst of severe threats and actions of death they will have the grace to STAND NO MATTER WHAT and not forsake Jesus Yeshua Isa – Son of the Living God. Lift up where ISIS (or affiliate) is controlling in places like Nigeria, Middle East and Algeria, etc.
