Dec. 9 – 21 Days of Prayer

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV

Please spend a few moments doing each of these ACTS in prayer…(look back at previous posts if you need help understanding them)

A = Adoration

C = Confession

T = Thanksgiving

S = Supplication

Read 2 Chronicles 7:14 again and think about your own life, your family, our nation, our future.  I believe we need the LIGHT of Jesus to flood our lives, homes, institutions and government. As you pray for our Christmas services on Dec. 22-23, please remember to pray for our nation and our nation’s leaders and that God’s people will lead the way in turning from sin and in humility seek God with a whole heart.

As you pray for LIGHT, ask God to help people who attend, or watch online, to choose to turn from their sin, humble themselves and trust Christ.   In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.  John 1:4-5 NIV

Christmas Fun, Jokes, Trivia 

During World War 2, the “Bicycle” Playing Card Company partnered with US & British intelligence agencies and manufactured a playing card that would reveal a map of top secret escape routes for POWs when soaked.  Decks of cards know as “the map deck” were given as Christmas presents to POWs in Germany and the Nazis never knew.
