I mean to find out." While Abraham's visitors walked on farther toward Sodom,the LORD remained standing before Abraham.

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Character Studies From The Bible John The Gospels) (John 6) 25When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, Rabbi, when did you get here? 26Jesus answered, Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.

    Dear Heavenly Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth, today we grieve for a nation divided. The wages of sin is death, and we are a culture of sin and death. Lord, we mourn and pray for the families of innocent men in Dallas, slaughtered for the whiteness of their skin and the shield upon their chest alone. Comfort them. Console them. Love them. These brave heroes were slain as they served and protected the very souls who now dance upon their graves and mock their compatriots. We also pray for these reveling enemies of life and order who exult in...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Character Studies From The Bible John The Gospels) (John 5) 16So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jewish leaders began to persecute him. 17In his defense Jesus said to them, My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working. 18For this reason they tried all the more to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God. 19Jesus gave them this answer: Very truly I tell you, the...
