Francis Frangipane The Valley of Fruitfulness, Part 1
(En Español)

The battles we face are often intense times of weakness, distress and confusion. If the events of our lives were charted, these would be the lowest points. Yet God is no less with us during difficulties than at other times. In fact, these valleys are often as much the plan of God as our mountaintop experiences.

There is a story in the Bible that speaks plainly to this truth. Israel had recently defeated the Arameans in a mountain battle. In 1 Kings, chapter 20, we read:

"Then the prophet came near to the king of Israel, and said to him, 'Go, strengthen yourself and observe and see what you have to do; for at the turn of the year the king of Aram will come up against you.' Now the servants of the king of Aram said to him, 'Their gods are gods of the mountains, therefore they were stronger than we; but rather let us fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger...

Satan's Domain: The Realm of Darkness

During the most somber night of His life, Jesus warned His apostles that a betrayer was among them. Deeply grieved, each asked, "Surely not I, Lord?" Finally, Judas also answered, saying, "Surely it is not I, Rabbi?" (Matt. 26:20–25). Do we see this? The other disciples, though flawed, knew Jesus as their Lord. To them, Christ's words were commands, not just teachings. Judas, however, never accepted Jesus as Lord. The lordship of Christ never replaced the self-will of Judas. So let us ask ourselves: Are the words of Christ just casual thoughts or are they commands uttered by the Lord of Heaven? —In Christ's Image Training

Prayer Focus
Prayer Focus

Syria: Russian military involvment in Syria adds a potential escalation to the conflict. This could turn out bad or it could be used by the Lord to end suffering. Pray for an end to this war and some peaceful solution to the upheaval.

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.

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.

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?
