When Does God Hear You?
In Daniel chapter ten, we read about a time during which Daniel fasted, humbled and purified himself, and sought God. Three weeks later, an angel visited him and told him that God heard him from the very first day.
Have you been earnestly seeking after God? He hears you, and the answer is on its way. Like Daniel, if you stay in that place of humility and seeking, then you too will be in the right place to receive God's answer when it comes.

How Serious Are We?
Daniel did not just pray an extra hour for three weeks. He did not just eat fish instead of steak for three weeks. He did not just go to church three times per week instead of once for three weeks.
And the point is not what Daniel did or did not do, but the fact that he meant business. He didn't play games with God. And he didn't hold on to his comfort, his pride, or any compromise with the things that displease God.
And he didn't quit. He stayed in that posture of humility and seeking; therefore, when the angel visited him in that place, he was there to receive a vision and a promise from God. Will you set your heart to seek after God, not only until he answers your prayer, but until he rolls up the skies like a scroll and we are caught up to meet him in the air?
We need to seek like this for the people who are dying every second of every day and entering eternity without Jesus. Let's pray that God will bring us to the end of ourselves so we will seek him for the lost, and so we will have a growing desire to reach them for Jesus.
This is why we minister through a 3-D Internet world, bringing the presence of the Holy Spirit which convicts of sin and leads us to the cross. We do this by inviting the presence of God through prayer, worship, and the Word of God every week in a world-wide community of over 7.5 million people.
Currently there are more than 7,526,236 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 200,000 to 350,000 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 and as a monthly partner.
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.
