Francis FrangipaneThe Un-envisioned Place
(En Español)

If we look at the heroes of faith in the Scriptures, we will find people that, without fail, were people of vision. Yet, upon deeper study, we also discover that, even as people of vision, they often found themselves in circumstances that were unlike anything they expected. Yet, it was in this "un-envisioned place" that God established character in His servant. It was here where the Lord released power that fulfilled destiny.

Consider Paul's letter to the Thessalonians. He wrote of his "great desire" to travel to the church in Thessalonica more than once. Yet, he said, "Satan hindered us" (1Thess. 2:17-18).

Paul must have believed that God was telling him to travel, plant churches and evangelize. Yet, if we look at Paul’s life, it seems Paul found himself often stuck in jail, not traveling on apostolic journeys. Although he felt that Satan had thwarted him, God was watching. There, in dark, mildewed cells, Paul allowed the character of Christ to emerge: singing hymns at midnight, rejoicing always, praying without ceasing (see 1 Thess. 5). Jail was not what Paul envisioned for himself, yet in the crucible of this un-envisioned place, by keeping his heart like Christ’s, he stayed inspired. From prison he turned to writing and there penned...

Pursuing the Stature of Christ

The War over Reality

Everyone Who Seeks Finds

Rule in the Midst of Your Enemies!

The Lord of Armies, Part 2

The Lord of Armies, Part 1

Read the Word with an attitude of willingness, with humility and faith. Even if you cannot fully obey it, determine to keep it in your heart. It is here where many fall short. For if the Word seems impossible or unreasonable to them, they disregard it. Yet Jesus said, "He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me" (Jn 14:21). Before we are able to fully obey the Word, we must first determine to keep it, holding it in our heart until it germinates. You see, the Word is God in seed form. It will produce life within us as long as we keep it.
Holiness, Truth and the Presence of God

Prayer Focus
Prayer Focus

Israel: Recent kidnappings and murders have awakened outrage and violence in both Israeli and Muslim communities. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and peace with Israel's neighbors.

Iraq: Large cities are being taken over by Al-Queda. Chaos is spreading. The nation needs prayer.

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: over 100,000 people killed and millions displaced by civil war. The war is complicated by the fact that radical Islamists have united with the rebels against Assad.

United States: Pray for revival and a return to 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?
