“How far would Moses have gone if he had taken a poll in Egypt? What would Jesus Christ have preached if he had taken a poll in the land of Israel? What would have happened to the reformation if Martin Luther had taken a poll? It isn’t polls on public opinion of the moment that counts, it is right and wrong leadership.”- Harry S, Truman.

Dream on, brother! Time is running out for this kind of reasoning. The world has changed and the status quo can’t compete. Though many changes are bad, others are changes that can’t be ignored, and will not be ignored by people of wisdom.
Keep Alive the Fires of Prayer PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, October 25, 2011
The Apostle Paul admonished the church at Thessalonica to “Pray without ceasing”. (Thessalonians 5:17). The opportunity and responsibility of every Christian today is to keep alive the fires of prayer. There are those who would prefer that the fires of prayer would go out. Some actually pour water on the fires of prayer. One day, they will regret this. When they are on their deathbed, and without hope, then they will be glad for prayer to be made on their behalf.

The policeman on the beat noticed the woman’s actions, and watched her very suspiciously. Several times her saw her stoop, pick up something, and hide it in her apron. Finally, he went up to her, and with a gruff voice demanded, “What are you carrying off in your apron?” The timid woman did not answer at first, whereupon the policeman, thinking she must have found something valuable, threatened her with arrest if she did not show him what she had in her apron. The woman opened her apron and revealed a handful of broken glass. “What do you want with that stuff?”, asked the policeman. The woman replied, “I just thought I would pick it up so the glass would not hurt the children’s feet.”
