Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Standing in the Gap
Today’s sermon by Pastor
Allan is digested from my notes.Pastor stated that our congregation today was a small crowd, but small
groups should not scare us.
Jesus began with a small
company of followers.Gideon’s band was
reduced to a small number that God could use mightily.Be faithful in your walk.We are here to serve and to expect the
Supernatural to happen.There is a wide
spread move of God happening.
22:30 (KJV) And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and
stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I
Our country is disgracing a
lot of us with what they call entertainment.Even the commercials are telling us that wrong lifestyles are
normal.They desire to shame us to NOT
stand up for righteousness.We are right
in the middle of a transforming attitude that is being forced on us to believe
that sin is normal.
We have loved ones deep in
sin, and we love them for who they are and not because of the wrong choices
Who will stand in the gap for
these we know, who need deliverance?
We are talking about people
who have NO desire to know God.
Pastor stated that he wanted
a church willing to stand in the gap.Write down their name and what is needed in their life, and it is
between you and Jesus.We will place
them on a bulletin board that carries the Title, “Power of Prayer.”Don’t carry your burden alone.
We can reverse the Curse with
Intercessory Prayer, in behalf of another. That is standing in the gap.
The seed was sown in the
man’s heart and he came searching for Jesus.When he found him the man said to Jesus, “Come heal my son who is
dying.”Jesus said, “Your son lives
because you believe.
We have access to Christ
Jesus, and there is a new generation who don’t know anything about Him.Our faith has been altered and weakened
because we often pray, “If you want to you can heal? Or if it is your will to
heal and if not make them comfortable.”
The woman with the issue of
blood had tried everything available but received no help. When she heard of
Jesus, she pushed in, pressing into the crowd so she could touch even the hem
of His garment.She refused to take no
for an answer.
So many are out there are
without a praying grandmother or family member.They have grown up in a Godless society.
We are to intercede even if
it “seems hopeless.”Even if you are
weak in faith, you are qualified to intercede and to stand in the gap.
Remember to pray for the
peace of Jerusalem, for it is God’s will to
and he promises favor over those who pray thus.
Look around you and see the
faces, even if you don’t know their names, pray for those faces.The enemy has broken into our families and
broken the security.Prayer will heal the
breach.Pray for your family, your
neighbors, your city and its officials, and your Nation.
James 5:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the
sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they
shall be forgiven him.
We need the supernatural.It might not be as you expect, for God is not in a box.
In the Bible, there was a crazy man who lived in the tombs.Many like him are walking our streets today.
God says, ‘I hear your voices and your cry and it is not in vain.
