The weekly devotions on this page are written by our staff, volunteers and those involved in intercessory prayer ministry. We are grateful for their contribution and heart after God.

A new devotion will be posted every Monday.

Entrando em Paz

Isaías 9:6 KJV — "E seu nome será chamado ... Príncipe da Paz".

Isso não só revela que Jesus transborda de paz, mas que todos em seu reino são chamados a ser o mesmo espírito em paz fluindo.

Isaías 66:12 KJV — “I will extend peace to her like a river…"

Mateus 23:37 — "... Como Ele quis reunir Jerusalém como a galinha ajunta os seus pintinhos para que Ele nos quer descansar contente debaixo das suas asas."

Deus deseja profundamente que ninguém se machucar, fearful or worried in His Kingdom. He desires for His people to fiercely protect and maintain their peace and confidence in Him. E, como mantemos nossas mentes nEle, Jesus keeps us in perfect peace. Isaías 26:3. Continue lendo

Céu de 9-1-1

Sharon Couchman

Durante esta semana de memorial 9/11 we are reminded of the devastation that thrust our nation into panic in 2001. Fear and shock gripped the hearts of Americans and the world on that day. We watched in horror as we saw the twin towers fall and survivors fleeing for their lives.

Então, esta semana especial, keep the families who lost loved ones and the survivors in your hearts and prayers. Please join us in praying for the safety and protection of our nation and leaders.

Em meio a toda turbulência do mundo, guerras e rumores de guerras, it is difficult not to be concerned about future events. Prophecies will be fulfilled, but God is still our Refuge and Protector. He watches over us. Continue lendo

Ensina a criança

I have shared some of my own experiences in former devotions I have written. My youngest son, Jeff Dahl, recently sent me an email that I would like to share with you. It is so important for all of us to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. The Lord wants to use all of us who know Him to reach out to others. May you be encouraged in the Lord as you read the following.

Jeff begins his email by saying, Even when he is old he will not depart from it…….

Sometimes witnessing comes rather spontaneously for me. Two days ago, I had a customer drop by who needed the wheel of his motorcycle repaired as the sprocket bolts had all sheared off. When I first met this man June 4th of 2014, I immediately saw something about him that caused me to see that this was no ordinary man.

We discussed the job, decided what to do and the cost to fix it. Somehow he mentioned to me that he as a boy knew God but his parental figure had been less than a good example of Christ to him. This had caused much harm and doubt in him. Yet he heard the message as a boy. I asked him if he reads the Bible and he said “No”, but when he told me I said, “That is going to change”.

Sua Presença

Carol Gonterman

Quando eu comecei a pedir ao Senhor o que Ele gostaria que eu escrevesse em uma devoção a Ele, I found myself humming the most beautiful melody. Several times during the last month or so I would hear this song with the words in my head. Mas, quando eu ia chegar a um determinado verso que eu iria esquecer as palavras.

Um par de vezes as senhoras eu rezo com tentaria recordar as palavras tão bem, mas não foram capazes de recuperá-los, assim teríamos apenas cantarolar aquela parte. Last week I asked my friend if she would try to find this song for me. She did, e simplesmente amamos! The name of this song is, Em Tua Presença, Oh Deus. Continue lendo

Palavras para falar e andar por

Ever wonder why words are so very exciting and important to us? God’s words that is!

“The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to hear as the learned.” (Isaías 50:4)

As a young girl I remember writing letters to family and friends and was always encouraged by their responses. I would also write about my pets, nature and creative writing. I enjoyed making cards (even to this day at 65 years of age.) I enjoyed writing as it would encourage others or just let them know that I cared. Later I enjoyed crafting, drawing and continued writings. Continue lendo
