1. Laudă: Am folosit Proverbe 18:10 ca pistă de lansare pentru a-L lăuda pe mărețul nostru Dumnezeu
- Numele Domnului este un turn tare; cel neprihănit fuge în el și stă la adăpost. Prov. 18:10
- Știind că ”nume” în gândirea ebraică înseamnă și esență, Îți mulțumim pentru pacea și securitatea pe care le avem în cine ești Tu și nu doar în ceea ce faci sau nu faci (Prov. 3:5).
- Tu ești Alfa și Omega, Primul și Ultimul; Tu ai vestit de la început ce are să se întâmple (Is. 46:9-10).
- Ce binecuvântare să știm că Tu ai controlul deplin asupra lucrurilor omenirii și le treci prin filtrul înțelepciunii, cunoașterii dinainte și sfințeniei Tale (Ps. 33:10-11).
- Îți mulțumim că nu dormi atunci când veghezi asupra Israelului și asupra noastră (Ps. 121:3-4).
- Tu nu Te schimbi. Putem să ne încredem întotdeauna în cine ești Tu (Mal. 3:6).
- Tu ești Judecătorul întregului Pământ, iar hotărârile Tale sunt drepte (Gen. 18:25b)
- Dragostea Ta este eternă, fără început sau sfârșit (Ier. 31:3).
- Căci Domnul nu lasă pe poporul Său și nu-Și părăsește moștenirea. (Ps. 94:14) Îți mulțumim!

One of the challenges of intercession is maintaining the larger vision and purpose of our prayers. As we continue to pray for this nation in the midst of increased lawlessness, anarchy, and rebellion, it is easy to become discouraged and wonder if our prayers are working. However, God is working behind the scenes to do much more than simply address the troubling issues of the day. In His redemptive purposes, He uses the trials and setbacks, and even the enemy’s attacks, to sanctify us, make us holy, and become more like Himself (Eph 5:27).
Ultimately, He is not after our circumstances as much as He is after us. Until WE are changed, the culture around us won’t change. The kind of transformation He desires always starts with His people…” Read more : http://www.christianpost.com/amp/5-important-points-to-keep-in-mind-when-you-pray-for-america-203147/

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.
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.

Church of God Prayer Ministries has an on-going initiative to involve the local church in a regular program of prayer. It’s called the Praying Church Movement.
The Praying Church Movement is a network of Church of God Prayer leaders who affirm the seven commitments of a praying church and are moving toward these goals. They are:
1.Led by a praying pastor, and aided by a prayer leadership team, we commit to bring prayer to the heart of all we do! “Without Christ, we can do nothing!” Therefore, our resources, spiritual and material; our plans and programs, we will bathe in prayer.
2.We will encourage at-home, daily, to-be-like-Jesus praying. We will reestablish our personal and family altars. We will embrace the discipline of daily times with God, with one another as couples, and as families. We will champion the idea of prayer rooms/closets… Read More

“Forget the former things; do now dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” (Isaiah 43.18 New International Version).
By Grant McClung
There is a desperate need for perception in our day.
Through mass media and the internet there is a knowledge explosion and information overload. The “haves” in the industrialized, “developed” world with stronger economies are afforded the luxuries of accessibility to literature, education, travel, and exposure to life experiences – including leisure and recreation – that broaden their interaction with a global environment and widen their knowledge, if not their wisdom. In short, this generation knows, sees, and experiences more — but understands less.
Most definitions of “perceive” use descriptors like “awareness,” “understanding,” “apprehension,” “comprehension,” “discernment.” A “perception” is insight, knowledge, or intuitive judgment. As a word, “perceive” is derived from the Latin word percipere – “to seize:” per – “thoroughly” + capere “to take.” Therefore, when insight or wisdom is “perceived,” it is “seized” and “thoroughly taken.”
In Isaiah 43.18 God does not invite a consideration but commands Israel – and us – to forget former things, flee a fixation on the past, focus on His current work, and firmly seize – thoroughly take hold of and embrace – what He is beginning in a new season… Full article here
