“A Word from Pastor Mike about “The Avenue of Prayer””

I suppose you’d have to be an ostrich to not have heard about all the drama surrounding the potential confirmation
of a new Supreme Court Justice. Well I don’t know about you but I found myself weeping on more than one occasion
for reasons I can’t even figure out, but irregardless the scenario reminds me of the Lord Jesus Christ who “wept”
on at least one occasion but I have a hunch that His tender, compassionate, “sorrowing” for people, who’d lost their way
occurred more often than one would think.

Consider His view of “the City of Peace” in Matthew 23:37-39 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem the one who kills the prophets…
…How often I wanted to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing”.
Are there parallels to the good ol U.S.A.? I believe so, (yet)… we still have the wonderful avenue of prayer!
See I Timothy 2:1-8; James 5:13-18
