 BROKEN

"Never has the great U.S. ever been more broken
than today. Broken marriages, leaving millions
of broken homes. Thousands and thousands of
teenagers whose minds are broken by drugs. The
people's confidence and trust in the government
is broken. The economy is broken--the once
mighty dollar is broken. All is broken except
the hearts of believers.
We need broken hearts before GOD to face this
colossal mess. Weeping is not only in order in
the pulpit, it is commanded! (Joel 2:17, 1:13)
Jeremiah wept over the sin of Israel. David
wept. Jesus wept. Paul wept. Shall we remain
dry-eyed in the most crucial time in world history
and our own??"

Sin is rampant and we are doing nothing. It does not alarm us that the Church is full of sin. We need to stop everything for a month and meet every night in prayer for 30 days and then God will give answers and help.

That is an amen, amen, amen, my dear brother. Not just a great idea to talk about, but we need men who will rise up to name times and places. Stop everything for a month! I have a wife and children and a job, but I still say it may be the only way unless something else radical happens. Maybe we should form regional meetings for prayer and fasting at the upcoming revival conference?

Greg, I think that is an excellent statement. We cannot say that things are not right with us and demonstrate we believe it by continuing with the status qou.

Amen. The seriousness of the hour demands both humble repentance before Almighty God and also radical faith that He will glorify His name in marvelous ways through willing and submitted vessels.

It's time, it's time.

 Re:

I agree with these posts! If we are "too busy to pray" then we are "too busy."

I have been thinking that many people might not really know what it is like to get alone in God's presence and spend intimate time with Him. It is never boring. Yes, there are times that we must struggle to align our thoughts on the things of God but, when this is done, intimate prayer is life changing. A man cannot help but be humbled and broken if he spends time with the one true Living God!

I think that the more time that we spend with God -- the more time we become like Christ.

May we all spend time with our Lord and begin reflecting His character to a lost and dying world!

 Re:

Hi everyone,


"Sin is rampant... The seriousness of the hour"



Tonight there was a large group of people riding their bikes down a popular street.



So what?

Many of them were naked.


My wife asked me when I told her if the police stopped them.


No, the ones I saw were taking pictures.
