Where is Faith?
Can we find faith by convincing ourselves that something is true? Will trials and temptations alone produce faith in us? What are the nuts and bolds of finding faith, in terms we can apply to our every day lives?
Scripture outlines three vital ingredients to faith, and today we explore these and identify how we can do our part to truly find faith.

By Grace through Faith
Scripture tells us we are saved by grace through faith. If faith is something that can only come from God, and if we cannot be saved without faith, what is our role in bringing Salvation to the lost?
Scripture tells us that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. This is true whether the hearer of God's Word is born again or not. How can they believe if they don't hear? And how can they hear if no one proclaims the truth?
There are people in all places, which is why Jesus told us to go into all the world to share the Good News with them. There are almost nine million people who are part of the virtual 3-D Internet community in which we minister. Many of these may be reached no other way. This is why the virtual world, too, must be part of the "all the world" we reach with the truth.
Currently there are more than 8,622,257 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 150,000 to 300,000 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
Prayer for Friend – JPT writes, Please be praying for Tamara. Also, please be praying for a friend of mine. She has had lots of problems with physical pain her whole life and she is just falling apart. Please pray that God will comfort her and heal her. And please pray for another friend who is so close to accepting the truth. Pray that God will show her the way and bring her home with open arms.
Freedom from Depression – Jerry writes, The girl I an engaged to to marry is suffering from severe depression lately. She needs delivered from it and the problems in her life to turn into a positive outlook for her in regards to school, work, and life. Please lift her up in prayer with me in hopes this will come to pass very soon for her. It is greatly affecting our relationship as well and she is withdrawing from family, me, and activities.
Comfort and Healing – Citril writes, I just wondered if you would uplift myself, my husband, Andrew, and our 2 year old daughter, Charis, in prayer. I discovered in May that I was pregnant, but there were complications. After many tests, scans, etc, they discovered on Monday that there was no heartbeat, so I had an op on Tuesday. We know that the wee soul is safe in the Lord's arms, but we grieve deeply for our loss, and I am in quite a lot of physical pain, not to mention the emotional. The verse that continually is given to us from various places is, The Lord gives and the Lord takes away, blessed be His Name! Thank you for standing with us and for blessing His Name.
Guidance – Melissa writes, I am asking that the Lord will guide my path. I am standing at a crossroad and desperately need his guidance. Lord Please help me today.
Finding Faith – Clovis writes, please pray that I will find faith in God as I search for truth; that he will guide me to him.
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.
