Francis FrangipaneA Thankful Heart
(En Español)

The very quality of your life, whether you love it or hate it, is based upon how thankful you are toward God. It is one's attitude that determines whether life unfolds into a place of blessedness or wretchedness. Indeed, looking at the same rose bush, some people complain that the roses have thorns while others rejoice that some thorns come with roses. It all depends on your perspective.

This is the only life you will have before you enter eternity. If you want to find joy, you must first find thankfulness. Indeed, the one who is thankful for even a little enjoys much. But the unappreciative soul is always miserable, always complaining. He lives outside the shelter of the Most High God.

Perhaps the worst enemy we have is not the devil but our own tongue. James tells us, "The tongue is set among our members as that which . . . sets on fire the course of our life" (James 3:6). He goes on to say this fire is ignited by hell. Consider: with our own words we can enter the spirit of Heaven or the agonies of hell!

It is hell with its punishments, torments and misery that controls the life of the grumbler and complainer! Paul expands this thought in 1 Corinthians 10:10, where he reminds us of the Jews who "grumble[d] . . .

The vision of Christ's glory manifest thru us strikes some as heresy. Yet, isn’t this unfolding manifestation of Christ in us the focus of Paul in 2 Cor 3? He wrote, “But we all with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory ...” (vs 18). Didn’t Paul use Moses as an example of one whose face shone with the reflected glory of God (vs 7)? Perhaps we have lived for so long in churches where the glory had departed that we think the return of God’s glory is heresy. – The Days of His Presence

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.

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: Almost 200,000 people killed in the Syrian civil war.

Iraq: Large cities are being taken over by ISIS. Hell is spreading across the region. The nation needs our prayers and divine intervention.

Kobani: The Kurdish town on the Syrian/Turkish border under siege from the Islamic State.

Ebola: For an immediate cure.

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

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?
