When Should We Praise?
The Psalmist wrote, "I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth." Time after time, Scripture tells us to praise God at all times, to give thanks in everything, and to bring a sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord.
But how important is it for YOU to live a life of praise? That depends on whether you want to live in victory or defeat, whether you want to live in freedom from sin or be held in bondage, whether you want to be close to God and receive his clear direction or unknowingly be many miles away from his heart and stumble at every turn.

What Will Our Response Be?
When we receive a bad report from the doctor, when we lose our job, when a natural disaster takes our home and all our belongings from us, or when death takes the life of someone very close and dear to us, what will our response be? Will we continue to praise God through our times of distress and be made stronger, or will we give in to despair and let our circumstances destroy us?
Time and time again throughout Scripture, we see that when men and women of God went through trying times and in the middle of those storms they continued to bless the Lord and praise his name, pouring out their innermost beings in worship to him, God did great things.
So what will your response be the next time you go through a valley, or during the valley in which you find yourself now? As for me and my house, we will continue to bless the Lord, praising and thanking him in and through all these temporary trials of life.
And we will not keep this praise to ourselves. May we never be somehow ashamed to proclaim the greatness of the Lord to those around us. And as others hear you praising God with your words, attitudes, and actions regardless of the dire circumstances through which you are going, they will be drawn to 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 7.7 million people.
Currently there are more than 7,738,514 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 100,000 to 250,000 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.

Prayer Requests & Praise Reports
Wisdom and Direction for Three Daughters – James writes, "Ask the Lord to repair my hernia, & the lining of my stomach & esophagus."
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!
Happy Independence Day!
This Wednesday, July 4th, we in America celebrate our independence and freedom for which men and women have given their all and shed their blood. Let us remember the sacrifice they made, and the incredible freedom we have and which people from all over the world often risk their lives to share.
Let us also pray for a spirit of repentance and revival to hold back the dark shadow of sin and Godlessness that is stealing over us. And let us stand up for what is right.
To learn about a bill that is being pushed as quickly as possible through the system which will take away our freedoms, resuling in Biblical preachers being fined and thrown in jail, please read this article, and then take action here.
Let us not only celebrate our freedom this Fourth of July, but let us also not be lazy in doing everything in our power to keep our blood-bought freedoms.
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.
