Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.    (Philippians 4:6)

My dearly Beloved,

The world has moved on to gadgets, technology and many more complicated devices to make life easy for people. But life has only become more difficult and expensive. Yes, technology helps in reading the Bible more conveniently, checking the internet for daily blessings and to gather more information about the Lord. But one thing we forget is the One who gave His life for us is alive. Prayer is how we can reach Him and praise is what can release His blessings on us. All the devices that we make today is by His wisdom.

Prayer takes us to the presence of the Almighty God, it dispels the darkness in our hearts and brings light into our lives. It is a bridge between us and God. Praise makes the hand of God move in our lives. Are you wondering how you can blend prayer and praise together? What kind of prayer and praise can open the storehouses of heaven? I would like to share with you certain thoughts to help you in this aspect. When you exalt God and glorify Him by telling, "God I praise you! God I magnify you". The bible says in Psalm 22:3, -the Lord God who dwells amidst praises, who listens to the fruit of our lips, would descend unto us to acknowledge our sacrifice of praise". Every bondage and chain of the Satan that has bound you for years on end will be broken on their own. This is what happened when Paul and Silas, the two servants of God, praised Him in the prison.

A practical example would be of a snack called "Hamburger". It is made of delicious and tasty vegetarian non-vegetarian foodstuff sandwiched between two slices of bread. When you eat tasteless slices of bread with these relishing food stuff kept in the middle along sauce, the hamburger becomes a great treat. In the same way when praise is infused with prayer, it becomes a sweet fragrance to the Lord and He is overjoyed and pleased with His children.

Beloved, if you want to be blessed everyday and be a blessing to others, praise the Lord and pray to Him relentlessly in the midst of afflictions, trials and tribulations. The Lord will move the mountains and fight every battle for you making you victorious in every endeavor. Distress, agony and sorrow will be a thing of the past. A new beginning, dominion power and blessings will follow you. His mercy and goodness will be your portion forever.

Count the Cost

By Greg  Laurie

 “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? Luke 14:28

It isn't easy to be a Christian—that is, a committed, growing Christian. It costs to follow Jesus. But it costs a lot more not to.

Jesus said to His disciples, "If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you" (Luke 15:18–19).

This is hard to accept if you have been a popular person throughout your life and then become a Christian. You try to be loving and compassionate and helpful, and then people find out that you're a Christian. So they give you a difficult time or make fun of you or spread lies about you. You think, This isn't fair. I am so sweet and nice. Maybe you are. But the fact is that now you are a representative of Jesus. And effectively you will be treated as He was treated. The Bible says, "Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution" (2 Timothy 3:12).

You don't want to decide to follow Jesus on a whim, like making an impulse purchase at the store. Retailers count on you to think, Look at all this stuff! I don't even know what this is, but I'm buying it.

When you decide to follow Christ, however, you need to count the cost. Jesus counted the cost when He went to the cross for you. He gave His life so you can be forgiven of your sin, so you can know that you will go to heaven when you die.

He counted the cost for you. Will you count the cost and follow Him?

Israel PM Netanyahu Hosts Bible Study

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu now a devout Bible reader has revived a decades-old tradition: Bible study at the Prime Minister's house.

The Prime Minister opened the first session of the "Bible Study Club" at his official Jerusalem residence.

"We're studying the Bible and the Bible is the book of the Jewish people, but also the book of universal values," Netanyahu said. "It's the story of the Jewish people and it expresses the hope that we will return to this land."

Netanyahu has revived a tradition started by Israel's first Prime Minister David Ben Gurion.

"I think in many ways it's a parable for humanity because if the Jewish people we're able through this vast odyssey in time to ford all the rivers, to cross the chasm of annihilation, and to come back to our ancestral homeland, to rebuild our lives, this means there's hope for all humanity," Netanyhu told the group.

Netanyahu asked Jewish Bible teacher Micah Goodman to lead the session.

"I communicate Biblical stories and Biblical ideas and how the Bible could guide us in very sophiscticated, modern challenges of Jewish sovereignty in Israel, we have to communicate that to secular Israelis and to religious Israelis," Goodman said.

Goodman told participants that they were there to try to uncover the secrets of the book of the Jewish people.

Netanyahu, his wife, Sarah, and more than a dozen rabbis and scholars studied the book of Ruth from the Jewish scriptures, known to Christians as the Old Testament.

"I thought I was going to lead the conversation but it turns out that our Prime Minister is quite an intellectual and he doesn't only have what to say, he's got some very interesting things to say and he asked me very tough questions," Goodman told CBN News.

Goodman also said that as the leader of the Jewish people in a volatile Middle East, Netanyahu needs a refuge from time to time.

"He escaped to the Bible, to something that's beyond time, beyond politics, beyond the day to day. And diving into this great text and dealing with these great ideas, somehow, he felt like it was a breath of fresh air for him," Goodman explained.

Netanyahu said he studies the Hebrew Bible with his sons every sabbath. Two years ago, his younger son, Avner, placed third in the Annual International Bible Competition held in Jerusalem.
Goodman said that Netanyahu told the group that when he reads the Bible, he's always shocked at how relevant it is.

"And so we're studying our map and our compass and our foundation, the Bible," Netanyahu concluded. "And you're all welcome to join us, especially if you can learn Hebrew."
