Prayer & Meditation

Forward

My pastor just started a month long series on prayer.

Everyone sames to be on the same page lately.

I suppose that it is how it is supposed to be.

Yet, the convergence is kind of scary.

Here are some other voices on the same chord:

David Joseph Platt  is currently the president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Mission Board, and he is also the author of the New York Times Best Seller Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream. He released a follow-up book, Radical Together: Unleashing the People of God for the Purpose of God in April, 2011.  And in February, 2013, he released Follow Me: A Call to Die. a Call to Live.  Platt recently founded a resource ministry, Radical.net, dedicated to serving the church and making disciples of all nations.

He also served at Edgewater Baptist Church in New Orleans and resided in a parsonage when Hurricane Katrina hit, flooding the parsonage.

At the age of 26, Platt was hired to lead the congregation of The Church at Brook Hills, and he became known as the youngest megachurch pastor in America. He said, “I believe that God has uniquely created every one of His people to impact the world. Some may count it as idealistic, but I believe it is thoroughly biblical, rooted in Psalm 67:1-2, yet covering Scripture from beginning to end. God is in the business of blessing His people so that His ways and His salvation might be made known among all people.”

He holds to a continuationist view, meaning that the Biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit did not cease with the apostles and are operating today for the edification of the church.

Adieu

In closing, I sign off with the words of one Kiki Sheard…Hear This.

Pastor Jim Cymbala

Preface

Hearing one of Brother Jacob Prasch videoes on Youtube, I heard him very thinly speak about a friendship between Pastors Jimmy Swaggart and David Wilkerson.

Pastor Jim Cymbala

Jim Cymbala covered the relationship between David Wilkerson and Jimmy Swaggart.

I think you will be blessed in listening to his sermons.

Who is Jim Cymbala?

Well, Pastor Cymbala pastors the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church.

I am a lot more familiar with the Church’s Gospel music.  Here is a link.

Quotes

The Dangers of Pride in Ministry

Started off with great worship at the Brooklyn Tabernacle.

We were supposed to take communion, did not do so.

I, Jim Cymbala, was supposed to preach.  Did not preach.

Two Singers came from Nashville, Tennessee. No one sang.

Did not bother to take offering; knowing that God was moving so great, and that it will be a sin to suspend worship for any reason.

God did some heavy duty business with all of us.

Left at Church and people were still there praying and worshiping.

Came home and went to take Shower.

Carol stayed behind and turned on the TV to watch the world’s greatest evangelist at that time.

This was about 20 years ago.
