The Altar alters!!!


Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5 : 17

Good morning.

Recently I have been told about many unusual problems being faced by my family & my friends. Couples having issues with their marriages, diseases which scare everyone, young adults rebelling against their parents, being caught up by a suicidal spirit, etc.. The Bible says that Satan comes only to destroy like a roaring lion and he doesn’t know anything other than destruction. He is a wicked one who knows how to destroy everyone, no matter whether you’re in the Lord or in the world. There are plenty of tricks he can use to destroy the non-believers. They easily get caught in his cunning nets, whereas the believers cannot be destroyed that easily. So he plans so very cunningly to keep the praying ones from praying. He knows our weaknesses and how to keep us from praying. He distracts us with various matters and makes us lose our focus on God.



I am blessed by the Lord in every way possible. Each and every simple desire of my heart is being fulfilled by Him. The things which I always wanted, but never thought would happen, happened to me, purely by His grace and mercy. But instead of thanking Him and getting closer to Him, I still turned away from Him little by little until there came a point of not having regular fellowship with Him and spending time in His ways.


I recently chatted with one of my closest friends who has always been with me through all my good and bad. When she started telling me about the problems her family faces one after the other, I was really broken up. The only question that remained in me was, “what if I prayed?”

Time is precious. Every single day we spend without having a real burden for others, messes up everything. If you and I pray for our family and for our friends, we are protecting ourselves from all the evil things of the world. The Holy Spirit will help us pray for the things to come. We will be a blessing to everyone. The Bible asks us to pray without ceasing. You never want your friend to kill himself or herself due to the unbearable pain in their heart. You also never want to wait to pray until that happens. Do you? During a recent Sunday service, our Pastor, Pastor Russ, told us that the teens in the USA are cutting their wrists just to get themselves diverted from the pains and wounds they have in their hearts. When I can’t even bear the shallow hurts caused while cutting vegetables, how pathetic it is for someone to cut himself knowingly!

It’s the time to take Godly things seriously. What I have heard happening somewhere else in the world is now happening in our own lives and our close friends’ lives. What do you think is the only solution? JESUS! Yes, the rich and the poor, the hungry and the well fed, the young and the old, the bold and the timid, the white, the brown and the dark, the single and the married, no matter what, we all need Jesus. Going through the trials and tribulations all by ourselves is not at all easy. We need Jesus in our lives and in our friends’ lives today. He answers when we call Him. A very simple prayer can save anyone. Kneeling at the altar, alters our messy lives. Why don’t we try Him today? Kindly pray for the ones who share their pains with you. Be a blessing!

May God bless you!

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
