“Those who go down to the sea in ships, who do business in great waters, they see the works of the Lord and wonders of the deep.” (Psalm 107:23,24)

I grew up in Houston within earshot of one of the nation’s busiest ports, the Houston Ship Channel. Crowding the waterway were tankers, freighters, naval vessels, cruise ships, and an infinite number of tugs pushing barges loaded with petrochemical products.

Night Song

You shall have a song as in the night when a holy festival is kept, and gladness of heart as when one goes with a flute to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the Mighty One of Israel. Isaiah 30:29

“Anyone can sing when the sun’s shining bright, But you need a song in your heart at night.” Ira Stanphill
“Like to the lark at break of day arising, sings hymns at Heaven’s gate…” from Shakespeare’s Sonnet 29

The most comforting Bible theme is that of the ultimate triumph of our individual faith in God’s great faithfulness. Against the backdrop of the realities of life’s dark moments, the knowledge that God is still working to make bad things work for our good is the source of our hope and comfort.

Internationally known teacher Jim Mackey has recently released a new book on “How the Twenty-first Century Christian contends with cultural assimilation and the redefining of Christianity.” Jim is a beloved favorite speaker here on Dallas Prayer Mountain. Here is a timely excerpt from his book .I could not say this better. – Robert Summers

The Culture of God’s Kingdom

The transfer of my right to rule to God is the fly in the ointment for most living in America’s egalitarian democratic culture; many still resist the idea of yielding their intrinsic my-life-on-my-terms mind-set.
This yearning of God’s heart is not to be exclusionary, but it is purposely intentionally separating.  He provides the opportunity for all to enter His kingdom, but it will be on His terms.

NO WORRY

NO WORRY

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?” – Jesus in Matthew 6:25

Jesus speaks against worry because we have a Heavenly Father who sees and cares about us. He who feeds and clothes the sparrow also watches over His children.

ONLY LUKE IS WITH ME

“ONLY LUKE IS WITH ME”

Let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of His coming back again is drawing near. Hebrews 10:25 NLT

God ordained the church for such a time as this. Stay with the team! Our communion, our fellowship, is so vital to surviving. If you intend to overcome the opposition of this present darkness and finish your race well, you will need fellow encouragers.

Today let us pray that Mr. Obama might learn from the example of former President Truman the importance of standing with Israel. Pray that he comes to understand God’s prophetic plan to make Jerusalem “the joy of the whole earth.” Psalm 48:2

DESPERATE TIMES, SERIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES

“Now therefore,” says the Lord, “turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping and with mourning.” So rend your heart, and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and He relents from doing harm…Blow the trumpet in Zion. Consecrate a fast. Call a sacred assembly. Joel 2:12-15

America has many adversaries who threaten to do us great harm. They plot night and day. What’s worse, we have national authorities who cannot, and will not, name this evil nor acknowledge it.

FRESH EVERY MORNING

“Give us this day our daily bread…”

We have experienced many financial miracles here on Prayer Mountain Dallas. Yet from Day One of this venture in faith, I personally had had to arise morning by morning to seek the Lord for our daily supply. Getting down on my knees to pray in the money for the day’s provision became an habitual exercise of faith. I wanted to enter the promised land of abundance. Yet I was gathering my manna in the morning. Every day.
