Francis FrangipaneBrokenness Creates Openness
By Francis Frangipane

Up until the moment Christ enters our lives, surrounding our souls there exists a hard outer shell, a "survival nature," which protects us against life's harshest offenses. The shell is necessary while we are in the world, but becomes an enemy to our new life in Christ, where the nature of Christ becomes our shelter. Thus, as the shell of a seed, a nut or an egg must be broken before its inner life comes forth, so it is with us: the "shell" of our outer nature must also break in order to free the Spirit of Christ to arise in our hearts.

This need to be broken is recorded in Luke 20. Jesus Christ described Himself as the very cornerstone and source of life itself. Yet, as such, He also said that He was, "The stone which the builders rejected" (vs 17). We say we believe in Him, yet how we often reject the wisdom of His words when we build our lives! This self-sufficiency and self-will is what must break before we can ever fulfill the will of God, which is Christlikeness. It is only because we are still...

Those Who Sigh and Groan

Prayer Changed the Mind of God

In the same way that Moses and those who sought the Lord went outside the camp, and as Jesus went outside the camp, so also must we, at times, leave the camp of what seems normal and predictable and begin to seek after God. - Holiness, Truth and the Presence of God

Prayer Focus
Prayer Focus

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. Pray as well for the US news agencies that are broadcasting the news under their own agenda, rather than just reporting the facts. Please ask God for mercy for our nation, justice, truth and that corruption would be uprooted, so that righteousness will prevail. That this nation would be "one nation under God, indivisable, with liberty and justice for all."

Those affected by Covid-19: Pray for healing and safety as well as the peace of Christ to rule and reign in the hearts of those affected by this virus. Please ask the Lord to use this pandemic for His glory and bring revival around the world. Pray for supernatual protection by the blood of Jesus.

Russia /Ukraine conflict: Pray for God to use this situation in both countries, that only His purposes come out of this invasion of Ukraine. Pray for salvations in both countries to be multiplied by the thousands.

Iraq: There has been an increase of bloodshed and warfare in Iraq. Please pray that this warfare doesn't escalate completely out of control.

North Korea: Pray for the leaders in North Korea to receive visitations from the Holy Spirit and that their hearts will be softened and work to restore peace.

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

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?
