“And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.”–Romans 13:11
"It is well past the time that Christians and churches should have begun to seek the Lord in earnest for the revival we need. In response to the breakdown all around us and to the call of our God, let Christians around the world confess that it is high time that we come back to victorious living and triumphant evangelism.
1] It Is High Time We Surrendered Absolutely (Rom 12:1–2); 2] It Is High Time We Lived the Life of Love (Rom 13:8); 3] It Is High Time We Put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Gal 2:20; Rom 13:12)." (Dr. Rick Flanders)
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. --Philippians 4:4
'The joy of salvation —what is it? 1]It is the joyous sense of deliverance, or of escape from impending doom (Ps 7:11-13). 2] It is the joyous sense of pardon, or conscious freedom from condemnation (Rom 8:1). 3] It is the joyous sense of hope, impelling, victorious, and assuring hope, with full and perfect anchorage (Heb. 6:19). 4] It is the joyous sense of peace, that peace which passeth all understanding, even the peace of standing in the grace of God (Rom 5:1-2). 5] It is the joyous sense of assurance, assurance which comes because believers know that they are God’s sheep and that they are held in the hands of the Father and of the Son (Jn 10:27-29).' (The Baptist Challenge)
'For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.' (Isaiah 65:17)


'Heaven is mentioned numerous times in the Bible. Here we shall enumerate at least seven facts about it which are clearly emphasized: It Is an Incentive to Prayer (John 1:12); It Is a Place for Our Treasures (Col. 3:2; Heb. 11:8–10); It Offers Reward for Service (I Pet. 1:7).; It Compensates Being Rejected (Luke 6:22- 23); It Comforts Departing Souls (I Thess. 4:13); It Is Companion to Our Blessed Hope (I Thess. 1:10); It Bids Good-bye to the House of Clay (II Cor. 5:1-2).' (William Ford)

 

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness --II Timothy 3:16


'There are several evidences of the authority of the Word of God: 1] The Evidence of its Authorship (II Tim 3:16; II Pet 1:20-21); 2] The Evidence of its Power (Heb 4:12); 3] The Evidence of its Perfection (Ps 12:6; 19:7; Prov 30:5); 4] The Evidence of its Endurance (I Pet 1:24–25); 5] The Evidence of its Impact (Jer 23:29; Prov 6:23).' (Kevan Bartlett)

'Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.' (Philippians 4:6) -- 'Let us endeavor to discover how prayer, in its scope, covers the personal, social, material, natural, spiritual, ecclesiastical, and national realms. The words “nothing” and “every thing” are absolutely all-embracing and all-inclusive in their scope (cf. Matt 21:22; John 14:14). Beyond these realms we cannot go. Prayers are related to all that we can see in the world around us.' —Herbert Lockyer

Lord, as believers in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ we come to you today to Pray4America on our knees with all humility acknowledging that we in ourselves have no strength, wisdom or empowerment to carry your banner of righteousness without the indwelling of your Holy Spirit.  (Acts 2:4)
