We had our last team meeting on Saturday, and it was beautiful.  There was singing, and praising God.  At the beginning of the meeting we found one of the brothers on the team, who has been suffering from vertigo, was having some issues. We gathered around him, and prayed that God would relieve him of his vertigo.  So yes, we prayed for healing.  We didn't see any healing, as E.C. continued to suffer from his affliction.  At the end of the day, I think he had to be driven home.  I kept wondering why he wasn't relieved.  What I saw was people coming around him, and serving him, and helping him.  God was showing the necessity of being a servant, and allowing others to serve.  He usually takes his medication, but it didn't work this day;  naturally, we did what we thought was the right thing to do, so we prayed for him, but the result was different than what we expected.

Today in "My Utmost for His Highest", Oswald Chambers talks about prayer.  "Prayer doesn't equip us for the greater work, prayer is the greater work."  He goes on to say that we get it mixed up, and I have to agree.  We think that prayer prepares us the greater work, but prayer is the greater work.  I get it messed up a lot, but today, I prayed for E.C.  I won't know what happened until I see him again next week when we go into the prison.  I'm also praying for two inmates, Gregory Leaf, and Harry Dean.  I'm praying that God will prepare their hearts for a wonderful time in praise, and worship of our Lord.  I'm also praying for God to prepare my heart for the weekend; after the real work, prayer, is done, lives will be changed, and Satan will be sent packing.  “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest”, Matthew 9:38.

Random Stuff for Monday 10/18/2010

  1. Extremist is a Theological Category - With all the stuff we see on TV now, and how it's become the source of lot of people's beliefs, here's a good write up on the new whipping boy for political pundits.
  2. This is an interesting piece in Christianity Today on William Wilberforce, who was behind the abolition of the slave trade in Britain in the early 1800's,
  3. Steve Martin, Bela Fleck, Tony Trischka Banjo  - some pretty good banjo picking!

  4. There is a video that has been on the web for over a week, showing a teacher explaining to her students that they need to be green; when a couple of the students don't want to participate, she presses a button, and blows them up.  There's blood, and guts all over the place.  It's pretty disgusting, so I'm not going to show it, but Michelle Malkin puts together a good piece called The Green War on Children in which she shows environmentalist for what they really are.  Remember, they've got it backwards because they worship the creation, rather than the Creator.  It's a dyslexic worldview, where children are viewed as just life-sucking parasites who inhabit this world.  So what's wrong with just pressing the button.
