Prayers of the Presidents – George Washington

A Prayer for Guidance

O eternal and everlasting God, I presume to present myself this morning before thy Divine majesty, beseeching thee to accept of my humble and hearty thanks, that it hath pleased thy great goodness to keep and preserve me the night past from all the dangers poor mortals are subject to, and has given me sweet and pleasant sleep, whereby I find my body refreshed and comforted for performing the duties of this day, in which I beseech thee to defend me from all perils of body and soul….

Indonesia–Church Closed in Bandung


Source: VOM Sources

1 Kings 8:28–30

Officials in Bandung, Indonesia, have closed the Indonesia Christian Huria Church (HKI), forcing its 200 members to worship elsewhere. On Oct. 23, 2012, Bandung’s vice regent ordered authorities to seal the HKI building after prominent area Muslims pressured residents to withdraw approval for the church building. They posted a sign on the front of the building reading, “This building … is sealed.” Under Indonesian law, churches must obtain 60 signatures of local non-Christians in order to get a building and operating permit. The 15-year-old church in Bandung had obtained 77 signatures of non-Christian neighbors before several were pressured to withdraw their support. Church members must now travel more than half an hour through heavy traffic to attend church on the other side of the city of 2.4 million. This is the latest in an alarming trend of church closures on West Java, some of which have been accompanied by violent protests.

Upper Room Felowship – “In the Light Of The Cross”

“I would like to report to you that God is moving powerfully all over the world in the midst of Christ’s disciples. If there is a King there is a Kingdom too. The King is about to return to display His beautiful Kingdom. Therefore it is imperious for all of us, as Jesus’ precious disciples, to re-prioritize our priories and make ‘seek first His kingdom and His righteousness’ our main life’s objective.

As I shared with you in January 2012 in our Grand Prayer we are continuing to ask God to help the Church to conquers new territories, new cities, new states, new countries, and new cultures for his Kingdom. We like and pray to be part of what God’s DOING & WORKING in all of these, especially when it comes to being a disciple and making disciples..

Specifically:

•We need the fulfillment of God’s promises upon our lives.
•We need God’s promised provisions to be fulfilled in us.
•We need God’s wisdom and spiritual discernment.
•We need protection from the enemy over our ministries, families, and churches.
•We ask God for new disciples to ENROLL in the ADT to be transformed by the Word and by the Spirit.

As always, we deeply thank you for your support in prayers, fasting and for your financial donations.

With LOVE in HIS Service,

Valy Vaduva”

In the Light of the Cross July 2012

Senator Calls For ‘Reawakening’ in U.S.

The United States is in the middle of a “spiritual crisis” and needs a “reawakening.” So says Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.

“I think our problems, though, are worse and deeper and more profound than just political leaders can correct. I think we really are in a spiritual crisis as a country. And we need a reawakening. We need a revival,” CBS reported Paul as saying during a speech to the Faith and Freedom Coalition in Washington.

Paul, the Libertarian son of Texas Rep. Ron Paul, also said America is at a “crossroads.”

“I think we are wavering. And there are many moral issues that confront us,” Paul said, vowing to work in the Senate for laws that make abortion more difficult…” Read more

Indonesian people group gets New Testament after 200 years

Indonesia (MNN) — The Helong people of Timor, Indonesia heard about Christ 300 years ago. But in all that time, they’ve never had the Scriptures in their language. Now The Seed Company says in a group effort between translators, farmers, professors, and pastors, the Helong just celebrated a complete translation of the New Testament. Pray that more will follow Christ now that they know He speaks their language.
