A Season Of Miracles

John 8:12 (NIV)- When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life

Keeping Christ as the focal point during the Christmas Season and reminding myself that He is the light of the world the light reminds me of Hanukkah.  Hanukkah, which is celebrated this week is also called the Festival of Lights.  In between the time of the old testament and new testament the Temple was defiled and overtaken.  The Maccabees were strong people of God who refused to stop fighting for Israel. They reclaimed the temple and then it needed to be made ceremonially clean.  They needed to use consecrated oil however, there was only enough for 1 day…and yet it burned for eight days, which is the length of time needed to cleanse the temple.

During this season we are reminded to cleanse our life, to invite the Father of Lights Jesus into our lives.  God is the light of the world and in Him there is no darkness.  God did miracles then…He still can…and does.  Jesus can bring light and truth to anyone who will remember to trust Him.

Carols At The Capitol

On Saturday Carols at the Capitol took place in many capitols across our nation.  As we entered the capitol here in Kansas on Saturday, we prayed that the Lord would be glorified in our praises.  The brass ensemble began as a call to worship. It rang throughout the beautiful Rotunda graced by a gorgeous Christmas Tree.  Slowly people began to gather, and other visitors looked on as our gathering began.  Children, wonderful beautiful children came with their parents, we prayed and we worshipped through the wonderful Christmas Carols. The one that stands out to me is,

“I heard the bells on Christmas Day.” As we sang the verse, “and in despair, I bowed my head: There is no peace on earth, I said, for hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth good will toward men.” But …”Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: “God is not dead, nor doth he sleep,the wrong shall fail, the right prevail, with peace on earth good will to men.  What a declaration!

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.
