Is prayer important? You probably answered “yes.” Since prayer is important, why don’t people pray more? How about you? In the last 24 hours, how much time have you devoted to prayer? An hour? Less?
One man told me that there was no need to pray because God already knows our hearts. He then quoted Psalm 139:1-2. Yes, it is absolutely true. God knows everything about us including the condition of our heart. That’s why the Word says in Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked!” All the more reason to fall on our face before God in repentance and humility.
As a pastor, part of my counsel to troubled souls always includes encouraging them to pray. And too often they would ask, “what else?” It seems that some people think of prayer as non-action. People are doers. They think that getting things done means to be up and running around. Kneeling and stopping everything to pray seems like “time-out.”
Wrong! Prayer is the most productive endeavor you will ever do. Remember the old saying, “Prayer moves the Hand of God.” If your humble prayer can get action from the Creator of the Universe, that is amazing! What could possibly be more important?
With those thoughts in mind, here are some good reasons for you to pray:
1. To receive Godly secrets – Jeremiah 33:3
2. To secure your Salvation and hope for Eternity – Romans 10:9-10
3. To impact the nations – 2 Chronicles 7:14
4. To find the will of God – Colossians 4:12
5. To receive Holy Spirit boldness – Acts 4:31
6. To defeat demonic forces – Matthew 17:21
7. To protect your family from ungodly authorities –
1 Timothy 2:1-2
8. To avoid temptations – Matthew 6:13
9. To find relief from anxiety – Philippians 4:6-7
10. To live in God's will – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
11. To protect our bodies from poisonous food – 1 Timothy 4:4-5
12. To obtain healing for our bodies – James 5:15
13. To withstand false accusations – Psalm 109:3-4
This very moment is a grand opportunity for you to set aside whatever you are doing and pray. You may say that you do not know how to pray. That is another fib of the Devil. You were born with the desire and ability to reach out to God (Psalm 42:2). If you will just start talking to Him, the words will come.
What should you talk about with God? How about the poor health of a friend, or a loved one that is trapped in alcohol and drugs. Perhaps a neighbor is going through a divorce or another is struggling with cancer. Actually, you are surrounded with needs that cry out for prayer. Is this your opportunity?
THANK YOU to those who faithfully send in funds each month to keep this ministry in operation. The high cost for WEB hosting and other expenses surrounding this ministry keep rising quickly. If more of you could begin to send in financial support weekly, monthly, or as you are able, this will relieve some of the pressure. Please pray about this need. Thanks and God bless you!

Texas History & God
Wednesday - February 26, 2020
Genesis 32:10-12 - Jacob prayed: I am not worthy of all the unfailing love and faithfulness you have shown to me, your servant. When I left home and crossed the Jordan River, I owned nothing except a walking stick. Now my household fills two large camps! O Lord, please rescue me from the hand of my brother, Esau. I am afraid that he is coming to attack me, along with my wives and children. But you promised me, ‘I will surely treat you kindly, and I will multiply your descendants until they become as numerous as the sands along the seashore—too many to count.’”
Prayer: Dear Lord - The story of Jacob and Esau is complicated. But Jacob was wise when he bowed before you in gratitude. He took the time to detail specific blessings You had sent to him. All Jacob had to hold on to was Your Promise. And that's enough for me! Help me to follow this example today. In the name of Jesus I pray.

Therefore, comfort each other and edify one another.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
For stay at home Christians...
We started this ministry with you in mind. Recent reports state that many Christians no longer attend a church. They have been offended, or have to work, or they cannot physically leave their home, and so they stay at home.
Our heart is to reach out to you with Bible studies, hospital visitation, prayer for the sick, serving the Lord's Supper, counsel, etc. Just call on us and we will be your personal pastor.
Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Romans 8:26 ESV
Our meddling Maltese Bogey says "I don't always sleep, but when I do I take my bone with me."
Blessed Hope - If you watch the evening news, you can feel doomed. Actually, we are in the prophesied Last Days. But the Apostle Paul was able to see a better day on the horizon. He stated in Titus 2:13 KJV - “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.”
The Blessed Hope of every Believer is the glorious appearing of Christ, the Rapture of the Church. This amazing event could happen any day, and at any moment. My Dad used to say, “Be prayed up, packed up, and ready to go up!”
The Second Coming of Jesus is comprised of two parts. First, Jesus returns in secret for His faithful followers. Any day now, the trump of God will sound, and we will be caught up (enraptured) together with the dead in Christ, to meet Jesus in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
After the seven year tribulation on earth, Christ returns again with the saints of the ages. This will occur as the nations gather to fight at the battle of Armageddon (Revelation 16:14). Jesus will speak a Word of victory, and peace will reign on the earth for one thousand years (Revelation 20). O happy day!
