Mission 2014: Sharing The Love of Jesus
Please take some time today to spend in prayer. Pray for wisdom for world leaders and cooperation between them. Pray for the families who have experience tragedy in lives - the college tour bus in California, the ferry in South Korea, the missing Malaysian airplane, victims of shootings and explosions, and those suffering from natural disasters. Pray for the inmates on death row and their families. Join in prayer today and may God bless you!
Prayer is a very important part of Christian living. Prayer is important because it recognizes God for who He is and is an outward demonstration of our desire to grow in our knowledge of Him and lead a life that is pleasing to Him. Prayer is talking to God about what is on your mind. It may be about understanding scripture, or healing for a friend who is ill, about the new job offer, or just because you want God to know that you love Him. Pray is about relationship with God, it is worship, it is sharing, it is caring – it is seeking the best for the entire world through your relationship with God. Prayer is about Christian Love!
Intercessory Prayer Need!
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people,for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly anddignified in every way.This is good, andit is pleasing in the sight ofGod our Savior,… 1 Timothy 2: 1-3 (ESV)
The pictures above depict intercessory prayer needs. World leaders in need of God’s guidance, tragic accidents, intentional infliction of serious bodily harm, Mother Nature withholding rain, missing passenger planes, military provocation, and needed revival, are all in need of prayer, your prayer. You do not need military might, guns, or a fancy title to change the world. The world is changed one prayer at a time. Become a world changer –be in a constant state of Prayer!

As Christians, or Christ followers, we should act as the name commands – act like Jesus the Christ. One of the things that dominated Jesus’ life was His devotion to communicating to the Father through prayer. The Forgiveness Foundation Christian Ministries (TFFCM) want to help you grow in your prayer life, or if your prayer life is lacking we want to help you develop it. The disciples saw the importance of prayer in Jesus’ life and asked Him to teach them how to pray:
“ Once Jesus was in a certain place praying. As he finished, one of his disciples came to him and said, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.’ Jesus said, ‘This is how you should pray: “Father, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. Give us each day the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation.”’” (Luke 11:1-4, NLT)
Do you aspire to be a “better Christian?” Do you want to deepen and strengthen your relationship with the Lord? Well, I’ve got good news for you! It is possible! In as little as one year, The Forgiveness Foundation Christian Ministries can help you transform your relationship with the Lord!
Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. (James 4:8)
Right there! That is how you are going to grow and deepen your relationship with the Lord! You have to take the first steps and draw near to Him! You have to actively seek after a relationship with the Lord. How?
A great starting point is simple: daily study of His Word, the Bible. God has given us the Bible as a history book, a textbook, a praise book, a philosophy book, a book of warning of the coming future, and so much more! By following along with our “52 Week Bible Reading Plan” (available here), daily study will allow you to completely read through the Bible in one year. It is perfect for beginners who don’t know where to start, or for those who have already read the Bible a couple dozen times. Each reading, each study can bring new meaning and realization.
The Forgiveness Foundation Christian Ministries wants to help you! Each day, we will post a summary of the day’s reading on our website, www.theforgivenessfoundation.org. We will also post specific verses to focus on each day. Read through the entirety of the day’s reading. Then come back and re-read the focus verses. Prayerfully contemplate the questions asked about the reading. If you miss a day, don’t worry! Past commentary can be found under our “Scriptures” tab.
Our 2018 Daily Bible Study begins on December 31, 2017, but join us anytime! So, are you ready to deepen and strengthen your relationship with the Lord this upcoming year? Then let’s go!
