National Day of Prayer, May 5th, Stearns County Courthouse in St. Cloud

By: Curtis Ophoven 0 Comments   4/26/2011

What better way to face an economy on the verge of collapse than to pray to the creator of heaven and earth?

Next week, Thursday May 5th, the ministry leaders of our great city will lead the gathering crowd in prayer for our city and our nation at the Stearns Country Courthouse in St Cloud. 

If you have the opportunity to join us, please consider that your impact will have a positive effect in our city.  Prayer changes the atmosphere, and the Lord hears the prayer of the righteous (Proverbs 15:29).

If you come and pray, the Lord will hear your prayers and the atmosphere will be forever changed. Prayer is the evidence of faith and faith moves mountains.

Prayer brings things into being. If you want to see a revival in St. Cloud, it will take prayer and repentance.  The other day I was reading about the prayer warrior Daniel, who prayed 3 times a day his entire life.

Prayer is the reason I am still alive and I’m sure many of you have a similar story. The prayers of my parents kept the devil from getting a hold of me in my youth, and kept me from the traps that were set for me. David prayed, “Keep me from the snares they have laid for me” (Psalm 141:9).

Prayer is powerful because it is a testimony to heaven and earth that we have overcome the world, while living in the world through the blood of Christ. (Revelations 12:11) This is only possible because of the love that God has shown us while we were yet sinners. (Romans 5:8)

If you cannot attend in person, please join us at noon on Thursday wherever you are and know that you are joining a voice of reason and sound mind, pleading with God for the salvation of everyone in our city. 

And if you are in school, join the students that are praying at school.

Evidence for God: 50 Arguments for Faith from the Bible, History, Philosophy, and Science

In Evidence for God, leading Christian scholars and apologists provide compelling arguments that address the latest and most pressing questions about God, science, Jesus, the Bible, and more, including: -Did Jesus really exist? -Is Jesus really the only way to God? -What about those who have never heard the gospel? -Is today's Bible what was originally written? -What about recently publicized gospels that aren't in the Bible? -Is intelligent design really a credible explanation of the origins of our world? This book shows that is it more intelligent to believe in God then not to.

The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism

In this apologia for Christian faith, Keller mines material from literary classics, philosophy, anthropology and a multitude of other disciplines to make an intellectually compelling case for God. Written for skeptics and the believers who love them, the book draws on the author's encounters as founding pastor of New York's booming Redeemer Presbyterian Church. One of Keller's most provocative arguments is that all doubts, however skeptical and cynical they may seem, are really a set of alternate beliefs.

Don’t Waste Your Life

Most people spend their lives on trivial diversions, seeking to gain comfort and pleasure for themselves. But Jesus said, "Whoever loses his life for my sake will save it." If the path to God-exalting joy and purpose is to "lose" your life rather than to waste it, then what are you waiting for? Some people may be offended by some things that he says - that simply going to work and raising your kids aren't all that God has called you to. There's a greater calling to consider. In conclusion, Piper makes his appeal to the reader "in the name of Jesus to wake up, and enlarge your heart, and stretch your mind, and spread your wings." For when all is said and done, what really matters is that those who are lost are lost no more.

One God, One Truth: The Clear and Simple Evidence

It gives definitive and accurate data on why the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the one true God of the Universe. Not only does it give evidence on the accuracy of the Bible but it gives proof of the errors in other religions in a sensitive and loving manner. It is not a book focused on putting down people of other faiths but rather a loving approach to help others recognize the one true God. I highly recommend this book to every Christian who has people in their life that they want to impact with the truth.
