Songs of the Redeemed
Scripture tells us in Psalm 32:7, "You are my hiding place; you will preserve me from trouble; you will surround me with songs of deliverance."
God doesn't just have a song for us tucked away in some dusty hymnal. He doesn't require us to walk through our whole lives in spiritual silence wondering if he's really there. God doesn't leave us defeated, abandoned, and without hope.
Rather, he SURROUNDS us with songs of deliverance!
Choose your connection speed above and join us as we worship God in song and then discover a little glimpse into the songs God sings over us and has placed within our mouths and our hearts.

God Sings Over Us!
We're surrounded by love songs. Many of us who don't even have any real musical ability have written love songs or poems to express our love for someone. Is God all that different? If we are created in him image, does that mean we desire to sing songs over those we love because HE desires to sing songs over those HE loves?
Indeed, Scripture tells us, "The Lord your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over you with singing." (Zephaniah 3:17)
God sings over you. You are a delight to him. He revels in the joy of fellowshiping with you.
And he desires to fellowship with the drunk in the alley, the prostitute on the corner, and the porn addict in the shadows. He desires to have unbroken fellowship with those who spend time relating with others in the virtual world, many of whom spend all their free time there.
For many of these, no other method of evangelism will reach them. They aren't going to turn on Christian television. They aren't going to go to church. But they are right there in the "safe" environment of a virtual community, searching for answers to fill the emptiness inside.
Currently there are more than 723,340 people in this virtual community, and that number grows by 10,000 to 50,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift to help cover the server upgrade, and as a monthly partner to help cover the monthly costs.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.
Visit here to become a financial partner or give a one-time gift today. And remember, whatever you do to the least of these, you do unto Jesus.
Prayer Requests & Praise Reports
Strength for Overcoming A Christian sister asks us to pray that God will give her strength to overcome temptation.
Pray For The Peace of Jerusalem! Scripture tells us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We believe this is not just a symbolic Jerusalem, but is quite literal. Recognizing Israel is the chosen nation of God, and we are wild olive branches grafted in, we pray for the restoration and the peace and prosperity of Jerusalem. God bless Israel!
Pray For Us! Please pray that God will continue to move through this ministry in an even greater measure. Without your prayers, our labor will not have much effect. But when the work of the ministry is backed by prayer, great things will happen!
Visit our prayer center to post requests or pray for those who daily request prayer. If you wish to be a prayer partner and have the requests e-mailed to you, contact us.
