Heavenly Father, we come to You in praise and worship! We thank you for all of the good things you give us. Holy be Your glorious Name! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven! Hallelu Yah!

Father, we lift up married couples and their children to you in prayer, and humbly ask for a special hedge of protection around married couples and their children. Father, You created marriage from the very beginning in the Garden, You covenanted with Your people Israel as a groom would covenant with a bride in marriage, You had your apostles teach us that the Church is the bride of Christ. In heartfelt prayer Heavenly Father, we ask protection for married couples and their children from all of the tools Satan uses to destroy the harmony, security, closeness and love of blessed marital relationship. We ask for protection from the lies and doubts that Satan puts in the minds of married couples to cause them to loose faith in You, in their covenant, and in each other. We pray, Heavenly Father for reconciliation where there has been breakup, and redemption where there has been loss. We accept, in humble submission, that only You know the course of a couple's marriage, and that only You set that course. We also know that You are a loving Father who disciplines those whom He loves like His own children. We know that You are a good Father from whom only comes good, and when you allow the enemy to tempt and test us it is for our good and for Your Glory!

Heavenly Father, we pray special protection around the children of married couples, and especially those whom have experienced the trauma of a separation or breakup of their parents marriage. We come in humble prayer Father, asking for full healing in mind, body and spirit for those innocents who have experienced such separation or breakup. We pray, Father, for a silencing of the lies, blame, and doubts that Satan would feed into the minds of these children to steal their peace and security, to destroy their witness, and to kill the purpose that You have planned for them. We ask for a special covering and presence of the Holy Spirit over these children, Heavenly Father, and that they have restoration of their families and reunification of their parents.

We thank You Heavenly Father in joyful praise and worship, knowing that You can do all things. We humbly pray this bounty from You Heavenly Father, in Jesus's mighty name, AMEN! Hallelu Yah!

Heavenly Father we come to You in joyful praise and worship, in acknowledgement that we are but sinful dust, not worthy of Your never ending mercy and love. We thank You for all Your many wondrous blessings, for Your care, for the bountiful harvest you provide, and for Your Word!

Heavenly Father, we lift up Israel to You and we ask You for her safety, her prosperity, her peace and for Your blessing on her. We know that Israel has a special place in Your heart, and that You anointed Israel to bring knowledge of You to the world through her. We ask for a hedge of Your mighty protection around her, and that You shield her from the many enemies that surround her.

We also lift the United States of America to You, Heavenly Father, and ask for Your mighty wings to cover our great nation as an eagle covers her chicks. We ask for peace, unity, and understanding in our land. We ask that You provide our leaders with wisdom, courage, and a heart to follow in all of Your ways. We ask You, Father, for the healing of our nation, as only You can heal Jehovah-Rafah, and we ask for reconciliation between all people in our land, between the races, and between those who have been blessed and those that are being tested in the fire. We especially ask for reconciliation with Your daughter Israel, and that all issues between our nations dissipate in the light of Your infinite justice, mercy and glory.

We ask these things of You Heavenly Father, in Jesus's name, AMEN! Thank you Father!

This is a set of prayers offered up as the Spirit guides me. Some pertain to events, some are general, some are for the nations and for Israel. We must always keep Israel, the nations, the Body of Christ, our family, and our friends in our daily prayers. Just like the Word of God doesn't return void, neither do the prayers of a faithful believer. Our prayers should always follow God's heart, and should move us closer to Him. Have faith that when you pray to please God's heart, they will be answered!

Heavenly Father I come to You humbly requesting that You provide for my two kitty friends that were abandoned or lost on Halloween evening and You bought to my door. You, who knows all, knows where my heart is, and I thank You for the short time we had together, and for allowing me to feed and love on them. Your will be done regardless of what I want, but I ask, Heavenly Father, that you provide a good forever home for them and that you allow those two furry hugs to bring joy, love, and peace into the lives of the individuals You have intended for them. Thank you, Father, because we know that all good things come from you. I pray in Jesus's name, Amen.

Heavenly Father, I just ask that You fill my heart with forgiveness, understanding, and allow me to rest in You and Your peace, with respect to the reason and issue as to why I couldn't take care of them further. You know all, Father, You are always everywhere, so I need not go into details with You. Fill me with Your Spirit, Father, fill me with Your love, fill me with Your compassion Father, so I can take this lesson to heart. Remove all idols from my life, and make me aware where I am sinning against You, in Jesus's Mighty name, AMEN!

Here's some pictures of the sweethearts (they are at the Larimer County Humane Society if you want a pair of great cats. But they should be taken as a pair as they comfort each other…):

Torah Wisdom on Financing (Part 5)

This is the fifth part of the series "Be Rich", received on Saturday, October 29, 2016. It deals with Torah wisdom on financing given by a very special guest speaker. The sermon is available at: http://www.rez.org/sermons/

  • Recommended Reading: Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money by Rabbi Daniel Lapin.
  • Jesus Christ was the greatest man that ever lived on the earth, and he spoke a lot about money and posessions.
  • Torah wisdom on financing is why the Jews are more represented in the top individuals listed by Forbes Magazine.
  • Seven Principles -
    1. Gold is good. Money is a good thing. Money is not evil. Genesis 2:12 Don't confuse cause with effect. There is a mistranslation that confuses "camel" with "rope", so a more accurate translation of what Jesus said would be: “Again I tell you, it is easier for a rope to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” - Matthew 19:24 How can a rope get into a needle? By unraveling… Gold is you, because when you put your gold into the tithe, you put you in…
    2. Gold is a testimony of service. You bought value to somebody else, unless you stole it. God put the wish for gold in us so that we can serve others more, and create value in somebody's life.
    3. More service = more gold. More service ⇒ solving more problems in the community. Send the youth out to serve society, not to serve themselves. Ask other people what

  • Change hell with a water pistol! Have that kind of faith…
  • God is not the god of the snapshot, He is the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob.
  • Look at the kids and invest in them…
  • Be available for others, be willing to inconvenience yourself, your back is not as bad as you think it is. Lift that weight!
  • Invest everything you have in seeing the Kingdom of God come.
  • God did not call you to take it easy and to a life of comfort. Nowhere in the Bible will you find that call…
  • Live to give God a return on his investment.

Resurrection Fellowship, the pastors, the staff, and all the congregation cordially invite you to come by our church, to praise and worship the Lord, and to have a excellent fun time in Christian fellowship. The doors are open to all, we would feel highly honored if you did, and you would be very welcome. Come on by! I personally recommend the the Saturday evening service starting at 5PM. But there is also excellent worship on Sundays at 08:30 and 10:30, and all services are live online.

This is the second part of the series "Be Rich", received on Saturday, October 8, 2016. It deals with how to honor God with your abundance. The sermon is available at: http://www.rez.org/sermons/

  • Give willingly, with a heart for the future.
  • We are not very good at being rich…
  • Be of a “get to” faith, not a “have to” religion.
  • When you serve the Lord, “YOU” will be better off.
  • What would happen if we got an “I get to” philosophy instead of an “I have to” philosophy?
  • Blessings can be that catalyst to praise.
  • The heart of God is not moved by how much you give, but

The Christian Thought of the Day is one of the more fun sections of alreaud.net.  As we add a new Christian Thought of the Day, whether a scripture reading or a quote from a pastor, or from a teacher, we also add it to the Christian Thought of the Day Archive. Some of them are inspired, some relate to personal struggles or issues, and some are related to current events that our world, nation, state, or city is going through.
