Our Perspective Is Not God’s Perspective
by Ministry Support on September 29th, 2021

Living By The Spirit

Go To God First
by Ministry Support on May 28th, 2021

Prayer Is Our Cornerstone
by Ministry Support on May 6th, 2021
Call upon me in the day of trouble and I will deliver you.

Praying Fervently
by Ministry Support on May 5th, 2021
So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him. (Acts 12:5) As we have been discussing in Acts 12, Peter was connected to a praying church and when he was in jail, the church prayed for him (verse 5). Now that’s a beautiful picture if I ever saw one. Here is the pastor—the leader and under-shepherd of the local church—in trouble; and the church decides to pray for...  Read More

Your Life Is Bigger Than You
by Ministry Support on May 4th, 2021
The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance.

Becoming A Person Of Prayer
by Ministry Support on May 3rd, 2021
When he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray. (Matthew 14:23) Yesterday we talked about how even though Peter was in prison and on death row, he was able to be at peace enough to sleep.

Time To Sleep
by Ministry Support on May 2nd, 2021
So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him. The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance. (Acts 12:5-6) While it’s true that the power of the church comes through prayer, that power starts with Peter being a praying individual. In Acts chapter 12, star...  Read More
