Francis Frangipane To This One Will I Look
(En Español)

Transcendent, Liberating Humility
Of all virtues, Jesus elevated meekness above the others. Why? Humility is the door opener to grace: no virtue enters our lives except that humility bids it come. Without humility, we have no sense or attachment to our personal need; we see no reason to change or appropriate future grace.

Yet, humility is not only host to the other virtues, it is also the life essence that sustains them. It is humility that recognizes when love is growing cold and humility that confesses our need for greater faith. Without humility, our virtues harden into lifeless statues within the sanctuary of our hearts. Thus, humility sustains the unfolding of true spiritual nobility. It provides increasing wholeness, life and growth to all other virtues.

Consider: when asked by His disciples "Who then is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" Jesus put a child in their midst. He said, "Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 18:1,4).

What a sublime wonder that, in heaven, the height of greatness is measured by the depth of one's humility. Listen to Wuest's Expanded Translation of this verse: "Therefore, he who is of such a nature as to humble himself like this little child, esteeming himself small inasmuch as he is so...

Elijah, Jehu, and the War Against Jezebel

These are the "perilous times" Paul warned about (2 Tim. 3:1). Yes, our world is full of artificially sweetened, salt-free Christians who, too often, are trodden underfoot by men. We must not assume it cannot happen to us. Yet it is in this very environment that our Father has purposed to reveal Christ in us. Even now our destiny is courting our preparation. Let us, therefore, press toward full transformation! —The Days of His Presence

Prayer Focus
Prayer Focus

Nepal: Many still are buried under the rubble after a 7.8 earthquake hit on April 25.

Baltimore MD: Pray for an end to the rioting and destruction. Pray also for healing between the police and the local community.

US Supreme Court: Arguments begin today that could lead to legalizing gay marriage nationally.

Israel: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and peace with Israel's neighbors. Israel could be a great blessing for the surrounding nations.

Ukraine: The nation is in upheaval as the majority of the people want to realign with Europe and the United States, while their eastern provinces are Russian people that identify with Russia, and want to secede from the Ukraine. Pray that a peaceful settlement will be established.

Korea: Pray for reconciliation to come to North and South Korea and an openness to work toward true peace.

Syria: Hundreds of thousands have been killed in the Syrian civil war. Suffering is unimaginable. Pray for an end to this war and some peaceful solution to the upheaval.

ISIS: Large swaths of land in both Iraq and Syria have been taken over by ISIS. Hell is spreading across the region. The entire region needs our prayers and divine intervention.

Africa:
Terror groups aligned with ISIS are growing in Nigeria, Chad, Liberia, Somalia, Egypt and other African nations.

Vladimir Putin: That he would present himself as an ally, not an adversary and that he would be perceived as an ally, that cooperation between the USA and Russia would increase.

United States: Pray for repentance and a return to Christ and biblical values. If America experiences a genuine awakening, the impact will truly change the world.

The Lord said that His house would be called a house of prayer for all nations. At the center of the Lord’s house, in the holiest place, is the mercy seat, where redemption for a sinful and suffering world is released through prayer. Your view that your culture is very corrupt may be precisely right. However, God tells us that He is looking for a man or woman who will intercede and stand in the gap for their people.

Every night my wife and I pray for our family, our friends and neighbors. We also pray for our community and America, our nation. We intercede for Israel but also for the Muslim world – especially where people are being destroyed by wars or oppressive regimes. We pray for people devastated by natural disasters, famines and poverty as well as those enslaved by human trafficking, drug addictions and gang violence. We also pray for reconciliation between North and South Korea and for revival to strike the Philippines (the largest Christian nation in Asia).

We believe that God does not want us to worry about the future, but to create the future by prayer. Will you join us?
