[Comment: Valley of Tears] Friends of the Rosary: We are called to holiness. The Holy Trinity ardently wishes to receive our souls in Heaven so we enjoy eternal happiness. We, humans, are created so lovingly that we are given the freedom to choose. God doesn't interfere in our lives unless we ask for help through prayer. Then we receive grace and wisdom to dwell on Earth. We also receive the gift of faith, that we would need to constantly cultivate. Prayer and acts of charity are the tickets to safely navigate through the valley of tears we live in. Like the Son of God and the Virgin Mary, we will bear multiple crosses, although less painful. To make things a little bit more challenging, doubts about God will accompany us. We might even think that the Father doesn't love us enough and has even abandoned us. Jesus in the cross, before his resurrection, thought about it, as well. At the end of this pathway full of sorrows and joys, we will face the final judgment. Life on Earth is short. Our best move is to cultivate faith, virtues, and love. Ave Maria! Jesus, I Trust In You! + Mikel A. | TheRosaryNetwork.org, New York —- • Watch this Rosary Live.

Chapter 12 - Prayer and Petition - Intercessio "Prayer is the raising of one's mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God." - Saint John Damascene There is no such thing as private prayer in the Christian tradition, even though the people praying may be totally alone in their own home, in the local church, or in the furthest reaches of the most distant desert. They are united with all those who are in the family of Christ.

s5e6 Mark 1:29-39Jesus Heals Peter's Mother-In-Law and Seeks a Desolate Place to PraySOMAScripture - Read and Re-read Mark 1:29-39 (read a section or 2 after this reading as well to understand context a little bit)Observations/Questions - Here are some of our observations and questions we had concerning this text:Why is Mark seemingly so detailed with the healing - he took her by the hand, lifted her up?Comparison/contrast with the demoniac in the synagogueV.29 - he left the synagogue and entered the house is actually plural in the Greek, why does it translate "he"? Is Mark emphasizing the centrality of Jesus in the story?What is the significance of certain words like the fever "left" here - this is the same root word as "permit" when Jesus was not permitting the demons to speak - is there a reason for the same word?Why don't we know what the demons said in this particular text?Jesus prayed in a desolate place? Why? How often?Demons seem prevalent in Mark - why?Meaning - major takeaways we have gained from this text (not exclusive - just our notes)Mark was seeking to show the personal Jesus, he has personal relationshipsAuthority is a big theme, Jesus has authority over demons yes but also over sicknessJesus gives us an example of how we are to live in the Spirit and with the FatherThe reader is to be a disciple of Jesus, echoing his model and ready to go!Application - what does this text mean FOR me not necessarily TO meWhat would happen in my life if I gave over to his authority? How would it change me? How would it change others? Have I really surrendered?Prayer time? Why am I so resistant to it?Do I really believe in the power of Jesus? Do I pray as if I really believe that He has authority over the demonic and sickness?The lack of prayer in my life - can it be from self-reliance and form disinterest? Is it possible that we do not see the reality of how vital our connection with God is in our daily life?Group Questions:What strikes you the most in Mark 1:29-39? Why?Just from reading these verses, what do you think Mark really wants to get across to us about Jesus?What is your prayer life like? What needs to change? Where is your desolate place to pray?Listen to NH podcasts on www.newhopechurch.cc/listenThe ALL New Hope Underground Podcast will be kicking off in 2022!

In the latest Craft & Character podcast, Steve Carter interviews Pastor and Author Charlie Dawes. Charlie and his team planted Hill City Church in the greater DMV ( DC + Maryland + Virginia) area. Steve and Charlie talk about how prayer plays a crucial part in the sermon prep process. Charlie wrote a fantastic book a few years ago called “Simple Prayer” about learning to speak to God. Charlie speaks candidly about the practice of prayer, not needing to hype up moments but rather how to stay wildly open to the burning bush moments that occur all around us, shaping us and the messages we get to preach.

Scripture For Today:Nehemiah 4:9“But we prayed to our God and posted a guard day and night to meet this threat.”Tune Into God pt 2How can we be sure we are listening to God? How can we KNOW He hears our prayers? Keep reading – I am about to take you through what I consider to be one of the most profound teachings on getting our prayers answered that you have ever heard. I believe, with all of my heart and soul, that this teaching will “tune you into” God. And, we have the promise of God, that if “we know He hears us, then we know we have the petitions we desire of Him.” First of all, let me emphasize, that God is not a respecter of persons. What He does for one person, He will do for every person….we have His promise on that. So, why doesn't He answer the prayers of every person…? It is up to US to get our Faith “tuned into” His Word. Despite what you may have been taught by well meaning Christian people, God is FOR you and NOT against you! So many people for far too long have been taught wrong. I had heard from as far back as I can remember that God was out to “get you” if you messed up! That is totally, one hundred percent opposite the truth! Where money is concerned, Christians have been taught that poverty is God's way of humbling us. That people in the ministry have taken a “vow of poverty.” That if preachers do “get” anything, they have to give it away. We have been taught that Jesus was so poor, he did not even have a home to live in (Luke 9:58 “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head”). Jesus came to show us how to be Blessed! Poverty is under the curse! Jesus came to fulfill the Abrahamic Covenant. Abraham was RICH! Job was RICH! David was RICH! Solomon was RICH! So why would Jesus be poor? And, if he was so poor, why did he have a treasurer? A poor man does not need a treasurer – a RICH man does! Judas must have been giving A LOT of money AWAY! Because at the last supper, when Jesus told him to “do what you need to do,” Judas got up and left. The other disciples thought he was going out to “give money to the poor.” So he must have done that so often that the other disciples did not pay much attention to him leaving. This was after Jesus told them that one of the disciples was a traitor! So any unusual actions by any disciple would have raised immediate suspicion. But Judas' departure was just a natural part of their dinners. It was so common, the other disciples did not think it was odd at all! Christians have been taught for so long that “money is the root of all evil.” But the scriptures do not say that. “The love of money is the root of all evil.” (1 Timothy 6:10). It costs money to preach the gospel. Just ask your Pastor the next time you see him! If you are not on the church Board of Directors and just think you can show up and all is well…and you give your little offering thinking “others” will give and that you need the money more than the church does…you are WRONG! Granted, God will make sure that ministries which are doing God's work will be taken care of. But, the responsibility falls to us! God holds each of us responsible. I want to pray for you right now that you will begin to “tune into God and His way of doing things” rather than listen to what “man says” you should be doing. If it does not line up with what the Bible says, and the only you will know that is if YOU are in the Word and studying it for yourself, then don't listen to the devil. The devil is the one trying to convince you otherwise. Amen! Let's Pray! Please...
Old Testament: Isaiah 63–66 Isaiah 63–66 (Listen) The Lord's Day of Vengeance 63 Who is this who comes from Edom, in crimsoned garments from Bozrah, he who is splendid in his apparel, marching in the greatness of his strength? “It is I, speaking in righteousness, mighty to save.” 2 Why is your apparel red, and your garments like his who treads in the winepress? 3 “I have trodden the winepress alone, and from the peoples no one was with me; I trod them in my anger and trampled them in my wrath; their lifeblood1 spattered on my garments, and stained all my apparel.4 For the day of vengeance was in my heart, and my year of redemption2 had come.5 I looked, but there was no one to help; I was appalled, but there was no one to uphold; so my own arm brought me salvation, and my wrath upheld me.6 I trampled down the peoples in my anger; I made them drunk in my wrath, and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.” The Lord's Mercy Remembered 7 I will recount the steadfast love of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD has granted us, and the great goodness to the house of Israel that he has granted them according to his compassion, according to the abundance of his steadfast love.8 For he said, “Surely they are my people, children who will not deal falsely.” And he became their Savior.9 In all their affliction he was afflicted,3 and the angel of his presence saved them; in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old. 10 But they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit; therefore he turned to be their enemy, and himself fought against them.11 Then he remembered the days of old, of Moses and his people.4 Where is he who brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of his flock? Where is he who put in the midst of them his Holy Spirit,12 who caused his glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses, who divided the waters before them to make for himself an everlasting name,13 who led them through the depths? Like a horse in the desert, they did not stumble.14 Like livestock that go down into the valley, the Spirit of the LORD gave them rest. So you led your people, to make for yourself a glorious name. Prayer for Mercy 15 Look down from heaven and see, from your holy and beautiful5 habitation. Where are your zeal and your might? The stirring of your inner parts and your compassion are held back from me.16 For you are our Father, though Abraham does not know us, and Israel does not acknowledge us; you, O LORD, are our Father, our Redeemer from of old is your name.17 O LORD, why do you make us wander from your ways and harden our heart, so that we fear you not? Return for the sake of your servants, the tribes of your heritage.18 Your holy people held possession for a little while;6 our adversaries have trampled down your sanctuary.19 We have become like those over whom you have never ruled, like those who are not called by your name. 64 Oh that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains might quake at your presence—2 7 as when fire kindles brushwood and the fire causes water to boil— to make your name known to your adversaries, and that the nations might tremble at your presence!3 When you did awesome things that we did not look for, you came down, the mountains quaked at your presence.4 From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides you, who acts for those who wait for him.5 You meet him who joyfully works righteousness, those who remember you in your ways. Behold, you were angry, and we sinned; in our sins we have been a long time, and shall we be saved?86 We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.7 There is no one who calls upon your name, who rouses himself to take hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us, and have made us melt in9 the hand of our iniquities. 8 But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.9 Be not so terribly angry, O LORD, and remember not iniquity forever. Behold, please look, we are all your people.10 Your holy cities have become a wilderness; Zion has become a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.11 Our holy and beautiful10 house, where our fathers praised you, has been burned by fire, and all our pleasant places have become ruins.12 Will you restrain yourself at these things, O LORD? Will you keep silent, and afflict us so terribly? Judgment and Salvation 65 I was ready to be sought by those who did not ask for me; I was ready to be found by those who did not seek me. I said, “Here I am, here I am,” to a nation that was not called by11 my name.2 I spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, following their own devices;3 a people who provoke me to my face continually, sacrificing in gardens and making offerings on bricks;4 who sit in tombs, and spend the night in secret places; who eat pig's flesh, and broth of tainted meat is in their vessels;5 who say, “Keep to yourself, do not come near me, for I am too holy for you.” These are a smoke in my nostrils, a fire that burns all the day.6 Behold, it is written before me: “I will not keep silent, but I will repay; I will indeed repay into their lap7 both your iniquities and your fathers' iniquities together, says the LORD; because they made offerings on the mountains and insulted me on the hills, I will measure into their lap payment for their former deeds.”12 8 Thus says the LORD: “As the new wine is found in the cluster, and they say, ‘Do not destroy it, for there is a blessing in it,' so I will do for my servants' sake, and not destroy them all.9 I will bring forth offspring from Jacob, and from Judah possessors of my mountains; my chosen shall possess it, and my servants shall dwell there.10 Sharon shall become a pasture for flocks, and the Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down, for my people who have sought me.11 But you who forsake the LORD, who forget my holy mountain, who set a table for Fortune and fill cups of mixed wine for Destiny,12 I will destine you to the sword, and all of you shall bow down to the slaughter, because, when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not listen, but you did what was evil in my eyes and chose what I did not delight in.” 13 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, my servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry; behold, my servants shall drink, but you shall be thirsty; behold, my servants shall rejoice, but you shall be put to shame;14 behold, my servants shall sing for gladness of heart, but you shall cry out for pain of heart and shall wail for breaking of spirit.15 You shall leave your name to my chosen for a curse, and the Lord GOD will put you to death, but his servants he will call by another name,16 so that he who blesses himself in the land shall bless himself by the God of truth, and he who takes an oath in the land shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten and are hidden from my eyes. New Heavens and a New Earth 17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind.18 But be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy, and her people to be a gladness.19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in my people; no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping and the cry of distress.20 No more shall there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not fill out his days, for the young man shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed.21 They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.22 They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy13 the work of their hands.23 They shall not labor in vain or bear children for calamity,14 for they shall be the offspring of the blessed of the LORD, and their descendants with them.24 Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear.25 The wolf and the lamb shall graze together; the lion shall eat straw like the ox, and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain,” says the LORD. The Humble and Contrite in Spirit 66 Thus says the LORD: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest?2 All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be, declares the LORD. But this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word. 3 “He who slaughters an ox is like one who kills a man; he who sacrifices a lamb, like one who breaks a dog's neck; he who presents a grain offering, like one who offers pig's blood; he who makes a memorial offering of frankincense, like one who blesses an idol. These have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations;4 I also will choose harsh treatment for them and bring their fears upon them, because when I called, no one answered, when I spoke, they did not listen; but they did what was evil in my eyes and chose that in which I did not delight.” 5 Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at his word: “Your brothers who hate you and cast you out for my name's sake have said, ‘Let the LORD be glorified, that we may see your joy'; but it is they who shall be put to shame. 6 “The sound of an uproar from the city! A sound from the temple! The sound of the LORD, rendering recompense to his enemies! Rejoice with Jerusalem 7 “Before she was in labor she gave birth; before her pain came upon her she delivered a son.8 Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor she brought forth her children.9 Shall I bring to the point of birth and not cause to bring forth?”
The first key to having great power in our prayer is humility, as Pastor Cameron shares today. Elijah bowed before the Lord when asking for the end of the drought, signifying that the power belonged solely to God!
We're on pace to celebrate the 20,000th confirmed life saved from abortion by the end of the 9/22 – 10/31 40 Days for Life campaign! But that number is probably just a fraction of the number of babies that have been saved through your prayers. There's a lot of evidence that suggests the number of saved babies is MUCH higher. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we look at the proof that your prayer and peaceful witness saves a lot of babies who are never added to the official tally!

Prayer is one of the most needed practices in our lives, but how often do we get distracted when we pray, or give up hope when we don't feel like God is answering? We have so many questions about prayer—does God really hear us, is He good, and how do we know if we're praying God's will? Also, how do we pray when we're absolutely heartbroken? Dr. Knut Heim and I touch on these important questions in this week's podcast. Dr. Heim is one of my seminary professors at Denver Seminary and, oh my goodness, does he bring an absolute word for us this week! If you're discouraged, wondering if God hears your prayers, or trying to figure out how to make prayer part of your daily rhythm, do not miss this episode!!!!

Critical Race Theory. You can't open social media or turn on the news without hearing about it! Why is it suddenly so popular? How does it fit in with Marxism? Is it a threat to Christianity? What is it anyway? To understand CRT, we have to understand the origins of critical theory and how it has evolved over the past century. Brooke and Susan delve into the history of critical theory, the implications it has on modern society and the way we, as Christians, can Biblically respond to this analytical framework. Be sure to tune into Part Two, where we bring in an expert to dig into the specifics of Critical Race Theory and how the Bible offers the very best framework for unity.

She graduated from Boston University on the Dean's list before acting in New York City and trading in Chicago. She spiraled into alcoholism before joining Alcoholics Anonymous and finding her way back. Sober and Pissed Off is the second book for Zarse. Her first book, Love and Compassion Is My Religion (A Beginner's Book Into Spirituality), is a guide for finding one's spiritual self. Zarse's first book received excellent reviews and gained worldwide attention. She has built an impressive author platform with tens of thousands of people who are in recovery following her on social media and is a top 2% of Twitter influencers. #JaneZarse #AlcoholicAnonymous #Soberisdope Jane Zarse Books and Social Media Book https://www.amazon.com/Jane-Zarse/e/B075N1KP13%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt_scns_share https://www.instagram.com/janezarse/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/jane-zarse-5459a2121 https://mobile.twitter.com/zarsejane?lang=en https://m.facebook.com/zarsejane/ @zarsejane Instagram @janezarse Get Jane's Latest Book Sober and Pissed Off is a book for recovering alcoholics who are struggling with emotional wellbeing. There is no known cure for alcoholism, and the only proven treatment is spirituality. Jane Zarse is a recovering alcoholic who will never be cured. What she really has is a daily reprieve, contingent on the maintenance of her spiritual condition. When Zarse got tangled up emotionally, her spiritual condition suffered greatly. When a recovering alcoholic loses serenity, sobriety is usually next. Zarse is grateful that she didn't return to drinking, but if she stayed as miserable as she had become, there's no telling what could have happened. There are millions of people in recovery who are struggling with emotional sobriety. Most alcoholics come into AA as very sick people. They are maladjusted to life, unhappy, mentally defective, and out of touch with reality. They are so desperate to change in the beginning that they will do anything, but when they start getting better, some of them start slacking off. Alcoholics are childish, sensitive, and grandiose. When they stop working on recovery, their character defects become more pronounced. These character defects cause alcoholics to have personal problems that jeopardize their sobriety even after they work through all twelve steps. In Sober and Pissed Off , Zarse describes how she regained her emotional sobriety after becoming a dry, miserable alcoholic. She took her newfound freedom for granted and paid dearly for it. Sober and Pissed Off illustrates why sobriety is so much more than not drinking. This book is for the countless people in recovery who are physically sober and emotionally struggling. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/soberisdope/message
