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.
In my line of ministry, as well as pastoring, I minister in the Prayer Center on the telephone. I really enjoy this ministry outreach.
One thing I have observed is the amount of people who are in “spiritual warfare”.
Ephesians 6:12 – “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” KJV
Recently as I was reading in the fifth chapter of 2nd Corinthians, I was deeply touched in my spirit. I have read this chapter many times, but this time I was impressed to go back through the chapter and make some notes.
Paul is speaking about our body and calling it our earthly tent. This is another way of saying that life is very temporal.
In James 4:14, we read: “For what is life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.” NKJV
Romans 8:31 – “If God is for us who can be against us?”

In Greek (Charis) it means Graciousness, Kindness, Favor & Beauty. But also the Greek Grace is “divine influence on the heart.” It’s a reflection in life with gratitude. Plus the Greek version adds, “that which affords Joy – Pleasure – Delight – Sweetness – Charm and Loveliness!”
Wow! The Grace of God is the favor that allows the power into our lives, but you have to believe it. As a believer, we have a right to God’s power and authority in Jesus name. We can’t earn authority as we already have it. We are working from authority. Continue reading
While studying God’s Word to believers the other day, I was thinking about God’s order in everything and His faithfulness in fulfillment of that order.
Lamentations 3:22,23 – “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is your faithfulness.”
It seems God’s perfect number is three. Seven is the number of completion. Eight is the number of new beginnings. Continue reading
Who has your allegiance today? Who or what has your loyalty? Who are you willing to die for?
As we celebrate the 4th of July and all the activities this week, let’s examine our hearts and locate our allegiance. Keep your focus and beliefs firmly grounded in the Word of God.
As Christians, first and foremost, our allegiance is to God and His Word. God is our source of everything and the very reason we get up each morning. Every breath we breathe is a gift from God. Continue reading
