Thanksgiving Unity

 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:23
This is a time to be thankful, a time to focus on all the Lord has done for us. It’s also a time to take inventory of our relationships and mend as many as possible.  The Lord’s last prayer was that we would be ONE. Unity in our families is close to the HEART of GOD. Are there relationships that need to be mended?…forgiveness extended?, clearing the air for careless words, or just saying, “I was wrong, I’m sorry, please forgive me.” It’s truly amazing how admission of guilt melts the heart of those we love. During this season Governor Brownback has asked Kansans to look at reconciliation, in our families and our world. In all the busyness of cleaning, cooking, decorating, are we taking time to be truly thankful for those around us? Take some time…sit down, ask God to reveal to you what He wants you to do.
 “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness (right standing with Him and our fellow man) and all these things will be added unto you.” Matt. 6:33

Where Do You Pray?

 

The National Governors Prayer Team Conference began in Florida the day after the election.  As the Kansas Team Leader I attended and was very blessed to hear Doug Small teach for 3 days on prayer.  He was encouraging us as leaders to have prayer room in our home.  I have a few favorite places to pray around the house including a screened in porch in spring, summer and fall. However I was convicted to come home and set one designated spot in my home for prayer.  

He was so right.  It’s now a place for me to just “BE with God… to renew, refresh, refocus, rest, regain, reclaim and most of all restore my intimacy with my Creator. It’s away from distractions.  I sense His presence so clearly as I sit at His feet. I would encourage you to “gift” yourself with a prayer room.

 

Next week Governor Brownback will have a Thanksgiving proclamation I’ll be sharing that next week. Also, don’t forget our weekly 15 min. prayer call each Tuesday morning at 6 a.m.  Last week’s was powerful and I would enourage you all to join.  

 

To join us in prayer call Tuesdays at 6 a.m. and dial 559.726.1000 then enter code 205482#.

Join Me For Statewide Prayer

Kansas Flag

I just returned from the National Governors Prayer Team Conference in Florida. Our speaker Doug Small is a seasoned teacher on prayer, and he spoke on specifically launching a community or state into prayer movements.

Our first step in Kansas will begin on Tuesday, November 18th at 6 a.m.I will be hosting a statewide prayer call each Tuesday for 15 min.  I’ve invited believers, Pastors, Marketplace, Educators, Media, parents, students to join in this strategic prayer time to move Kansas to a new level of God’s grace and mercy. If you’d like to join with us here is the number 559-726-1000, Code 205482#.   Pray Kansas begins.  

7 years ago my husband and I traveled the state launching another prayer initiative called Operation Rolling Thunder. We held 25 workshops in 3 months and many of you participated and some still do. We are now asking for you to join us in this new endeavor. Our prayer time will cover alerts, concerns, breaking strongholds in every area.  We will also pray for our Governor and the state of Kansas.

It’s a simple process.  To join us simply call at 6 a.m. and dial 559-726.1000 and then enter code 205482#.

 

One Man & One Woman

When have you ever seen the U.S. Supreme Court rule so quickly?  One day last week they said there was a stay on homosexual marriage, then two days later they said they lifted that ban and said homosexual couples could marry in Kansas.

What has happened on our watch?  71% of Kansans agreed to an amendment to our state constitution that marriage is only between one man and one woman.  That was in 2005.  There was only one county that disagreed and that was Douglas county where Lawrence resides.  How has this happened? Have Christians fallen into the sloppy agape doctrine, that Jesus is all about love, love, love and not about holiness and righteousness?

 Please read Romans 1 and be prepared to give a defense for righteousness in Kansas.  Should the judges be able to override the will of the people in America?

 I think not.  Please pray that there will be an injunction to stop the madness.  Kansas needs to be a tower of righteousness, so let’s raise a tower of prayer.

Please pray for BIG RED ONE!

The best way to honor our veterans for their service, sacrifice and duty is to pray for them, their families and our military that’s in active duty now.

The Big Red One has gone to Iraq.  We launched pray91 for them last week.  We’re asking you to set your phone alarm for 9:10 a.m. and 9:10 pm and pray Psalm 91 overthem and their families.

 “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and My strength, My God in Whom I trust.”

I just returned from a 3 day prayer conference where we were encouraged to create a prayer room.  To be alone with our Savior is the most important assignment of our day.  Others are counting on us to pray, but He longs for us to spend time with Him.

“He makes us to lie down in green pastures.” 

Remember those who died for our freedom this Veteran’s Day.

Update

What happens when you mix passionate prayer and action?  Dynomite!!!

That is Dunamos in scripture but Dynomite to us! Explosive, the kind of power that raised the son of God from the grave.The gates of hell cannot prevail against the Body of Christ, when the Body of Christ is engaged, focused and believing that they are the hands and feet of Christ, that they are worth so much more than their salt, that they are impacting their culture through Christ strength and direction.

The Body of Christ from all over the nation is in full swing in Kansas.  There is prayer, there’s action, they are walking, talking, singing praising and declaring VICTORY in Jesus.  Last week I told you about a March for JESUS in Liberal.  It’s time Kansas comes together and lifst up the NAME OF JESUS in a statewide, corporate CHEER.  Now, I’m not talking about  the Kansas City Royals, although all eyes are on Kansas, but miracle, upon miracle that takes place when His people, become the voice of reason, the voice for TRUTH, the voice for HIM.

Lift up the name of JESUS!

HOUSTON We have a problem!

Pastor & Patriot Alert!

What Role should religion play in Government?

Americans are searching for meaning and they want churches to FIGHT BACK!

The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayo said those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.

“The city’s subpoena of sermons and other pastoral communications is both needless and unprecedented,”

Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christina Holcomb said in a statement.

“The city council and its attorneys are engaging in an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions.”The Houston Chronicle reported opponents of the ordinance launched a petition drive that generated more than 50,000 signatures – far more than the 17,269 needed to put a referendum on the ballot. However, the city threw out the petition in August over alleged irregularities. Two cities in Kansas now have a gender identity law on the books.

KANSANS Awaken to what is happening. Believers:  It’s time for your voice to be heard.
