Those Who Hope In The Lord
Hope is something we all need if we are to have the will to live in the abundance Jesus came to give us (John 10:10). But hope, in and of itself, is not necessarily a good thing. In fact, hope can destroy us.
You see, hope in something or someone which cannot or will not deliver, according to Proverbs 13:12, makes the heart sick. It can take away your feeling of purpose, and even your will to live. So today we talk about the kind of hope that brings life, a hope which will not disappoint.

Hope For The World
The world is searching for hope. And there are plenty who offer hope — hope in a politician to bring change, hope in a government to meet needs and give security, hope in a religious system, hope in the greatness of mankind.
But hope that is in something which cannot or will not deliver is false hope. And false hope will keep those who embrace it from searching for a hope in something real.
Hope in anything or anyone else besides God is hope that is in vain. Hope in riches will disappoint. Hope in other gods or a religious system will disappoint. Hope in a man or a woman will disappoint. Hope in a government or a charity will disappoint. Hope in your own abilities and efforts will disappoint. But those who hope in the Lord will not be disappointed.
This is why we reach out to the millions of people in the 3-D virtual reality community in which we've been called to minister. These are real people from every walk of life and from every corner of the globe. There's plenty of false hope that is waiting to take them to an eternity in hell. We cannot do less than our absolute best to offer the only true hope to as many as we can reach.
Currently there are more than 13,417,315 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number continues to grow 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.

Prayer Requests & Praise Reports
Home for Sister's Children – Lillyanna writes, Today, My little sister found out that the people caring for her children in Tennesee are going though troubles with the landlord at the motel they have been staying at, due to misfiled paperwork on their rental. They were told they were behind
on rent, when they really are not, and the landlord has threatened that though they cannot evict without notice, they can have the power and water turned off, and their car towed. I only ask help in praying that this does not happen or that they find some other means to stay elsewhere or the situation to grow better, that those small children, ages 3 and 4 and their cousin, who is a year and a half, do not suffer in this cold weather, or be put on the street. Thank You and God Bless.
Second Life Outreach – Jadyn writes, Please pray for me (Jadyn Westland) and RickOShea and others as well as we reach out to the furry community. We know there are real souls behind the avatars, and we want to help them know God more.
Blessings – Phil writes, Pray GOD Blesses me in every area of my life today.
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.
