PRAYER

Why do we pray?

Even Yeshua prayed!  Did He not come to do His Father’s will?  Yet He prayed according to the Word of God for the Father’s will to be done that would accomplish the purpose for which He came.  And because He loved God His Father more than even His own life, and always desired to please Him, then God … Continue reading

“Return our exiles, O Lord, like watercourses in the Negev. Those who sow in tears shall reap with songs of joy. He who goes along weeping, carrying the seedbag, shall come back with songs of joy, carrying his sheaves” (Psalm 126:4-6).

The conference website is very clear that the purpose of the conference — despite having the two Israeli pastors speak — is … Continue reading
