A Call to Prayer over tension in Iran


I'm a bit troubled. Was up early this morning and spent some time reading and reflecting on Jesus. That is always good; however what has me a little concerned is the state of international affairs with the country of Iran. Coming off of summit talks and usual discussion of "how can we all get along" speeches, aggressive missile development within Iran continues. Now, I think that countries ought to develop it's military, and certainly have plans of protection for it's boarders. But this tension with Iran is serious. They are a proud people who have a real patriotism toward their goals. The tension that exists is within this countries administration to apply the right action and attitude toward this radical situation. That is why I would like you to take this week and pray to the Lord for this situation. I'm not asking to draw lines around party agendas but simply pray to the Lord about these governments, to whom the Lord has both sovereignty and oversight. Much could be on the line in the days ahead, and if the body of Christ seeks the Lord, we can have a clear heart to continue to witness and proclaim the Lord's will, even in international affairs.

Been awhile...

Ever notice how long you can go without being noticed. Well, it has been a while since my last blog and so I wanted to let you know that I'm alive and kickin. Life has been busy with a new baby on the way and transition of location for Elevation Church, but I'm excited about a series of blogs that I will be rollin out to you all this week called "Blood Theology." It will be the fascination that our culture has with blood and its use in media in contrast to its use in scripture. So, stay tuned. Until then, keep looking to Jesus...
