Knowing Our Hearts
(En Español)

Our pursuit is not only to know the heart of God, but to know our own hearts in God's light. Indeed, as I draw closer to the heart of God, the very fire of His presence begins a deep purging work within me, and in the vastness of His riches, my poverty appears. The psalmist wrote, "Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? And who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood, and has not sworn deceitfully" (Ps. 24:3-4).

We cannot even find the hill of the Lord, much less ascend it, if there is deceit in our heart. How does one serve in God's holy place if his soul is unclean? It is only the pure in heart who perceive God. To ascend toward God is to walk into a furnace of truth where falsehood is extracted from our souls. To abide in the holy place we must dwell in honesty, even when a lie might seem to save us. Each ascending step upon the hill of God is a thrusting of our souls into greater transparency, a more perfect view into the motives of our hearts.

It is this upward call of God which we pursue. Yet the soul within us is hidden, crouching in....

What Does Jesus Say?

The Gift of Discernment

Some have lamented, "Where are the leaders who seek God?" Their complaint reminds me of a time in the '80s when none of the city pastors showed up for morning prayer. Alone in a cold, dark, empty church, I too lamented for nearly an hour. Suddenly the atmosphere changed. Everything – the hum of the furnace, the clatter of the grates, even my thoughts – all things were subdued. The presence of the Lord was in the room. Looking directly at me He said, "You be the man you want the others to be." At that moment I stopped criticizing church leaders and started to become one.

Prayer Focus
Prayer Focus

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. Right now

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?
