This week's message is Prayer Part 3: "Thy Kingdom Come". Choose your connection speed to listen: dialup - broadband - transcript
Kings and Kingdoms
The Kingdom of God is called the "Kingdom" of God because of its likeness in certain respects to an earthly kingdom. There are many things we can learn from earthly symbols of heavenly things, and the Kingdom of God is no exception.
Today we use examples of various elements of earthly kingdoms to get a better understanding of the Heavenly Kingdom, and discover how this can impact our relationship with God.

Where Is the Kingdom of God?
Jesus told us that the Kingdom of God is inside of us, and later in the New Testament we read that "the Kingdom of God is not food or drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit." Within its Kingdom structure is found righteousness, peace, and joy. And these all come by the Holy Spirit.
About the Holy Spirit, Scripture tells us that the world cannot know him. In order to know the Holy Spirit and experience the righteousness, peace, and joy that only he can bring, we must be born again.
There are countless multitudes right outside of our doors who do not know Jesus. And because of this, they do not know true peace and joy. We have the answer. How can we just let them die without it? We desperately need the baptism in the Holy Spirit which, according to the examples in Scripture, is a separate event from Salvation. A world of dying souls is waiting for us to get serious about running hard after all God has for us, because it's not about a thrill or an emotional high; rather, it's about leading the world to Jesus.
This is why we minister in a virtual 3-D Internet community. We seek to bring the presence of the Lord into hearts and homes all around the world through corporate prayer, worship, and the Word of God. And your faithful prayers and financial support make this possible.
Currently there are more than 10,050,376 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
Deliverance from Cocaine and Reconciliation – Raquel writes, Please pray with me for my husband Bernie. He is addicted to crack. I have separated myself from him for the safety of our children. I believe that all things are possible with God. The desire of my heart is that he would be free from his addiction, and that one day our family would be restored for God's glory.
Revival – Sir James writes, Please pray for the Church of England, for strength and unity, spirituality and sacrament.
"I'm Praying for You" – LQ writes, Although I have not been active in the Living Sounds ministry since my family and I moved this summer, I wanted to let everyone know that I keep each person who posts here in prayer. I use my blog to ask the larger faith community to pray as well for my online friends. I receive the prayer chain by email and noticed the pain that so many of you are experiencing right now. I pray right now in the Name of Jesus that each petition be heard and each prayer be addressed in His time. Friends, know that our Great God hears each of you and that your righteous and fervent prayers will be answered; the answer may not come right now but it will come. Continue to believe on His Son, Jesus and know that you will make it through. In Him, LQ
Searching for Truth – Ryan writes, I don't know if this is right...but please pray for me...I want to believe in god, I want to have faith in something more than this life that I lead...I'm 16 and I wish that some day I could kneel and pray to a god that I know will do right
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!
