Holy Spirit, please help us recover our first love for Jesus.
Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place--unless you repent. (Revelation 2:5)
Jesus, help us understand the cost of true repentance and returning to you: It will mean giving up much that is attractive and returning to the work of actively sharing you with others.
But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. (Revelation 2:6)
Father, please help us utterly reject all false teaching and embrace the apostolic faith once for all given to the saints.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God." ' (Revelation 2:7)
Holy Spirit, open our ears to what you are saying to the churches and eat from the tree of life.
Hear this, you who swallow up the needy, and make the poor of the land fail, saying: "When will the New Moon be past, that we may sell grain? And the Sabbath, that we may trade wheat? Making the ephah small and the shekel large, falsifying the scales by deceit, that we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of sandals-- even sell the bad wheat?" (Amos 8:4-6)
LORD, bring to repentance the wealthy in this nation who eat up and use the poor and deny them adequate pay to live on.
"Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD, "That I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD. (Amos 8:11)
Father, there is a famine of your word in this nation and in the church. Send forth your word with power and feed the hungry once again.
My soul clings to the dust; revive me according to your word. (Psalm 119:25)

December 17: Bishop Mike & Linda Chapman from Peru
Bishop Mike & Linda Chapman are missionaries to Peru in new areas where the Anglican Church has not been before. They are also active in the Healing Ministry and are blessed to see the Lord move in miraculous ways in Peru and here in the U.S.
The theme of the message will be Matthew 10:7&8 And as you go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons; freely you received, freely give.
December 24: The Living Gospel with Matthew & Tina Zawisza
Matthew & Tina Zawisza are a full time husband & wife traveling ministry. Both their marriage and ministry was birthed in early 2007. The Bible wasn't always written on paper. It was shared and passed down from one person to the next. This ministry is simply trying to bring that back so God's children can once again have an experience like the ones who first heard the Gospel did not only with their ears but also the eyes. The Living Gospel is a Faith Based ministry, meaning Matthew & Tina live as the Lord provides through the generosity our gifts for the work the Lord has given them to do.
A special Christmas Eve service: Living Gospel Ministry presents, JOSEPH: the Expectant Dad. Experience the events of the first Christmas as Joseph relives one of the most unexpected journeys. From Nazareth all the way to Bethlehem, hear from the carpenter himself what it felt like first hand to be a part of this most incredible story.
