SIG Alert!

40 Weekdays of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists and definition of "SIG Alert."  

Day 12 – Mark 11.22-24: “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.  “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.  Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

  1. Pray that we will understand that the power to believe a promise depends, not on us, but in faith in the one who made the promise—God.
  2. Pray for Harvest of Love Community Church, their pastor Rev. Bill Landrum, his wife Glenda and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  3. Pray for the Lakewood Church International, their pastor Rev. Charles Belvin, his wife and family, their church leaders, and congregation.  Pray also for associate pastor Rev. Anthony Mayes and his wife Shannon and their family.
  4. Pray for the city of Lomita, their elected and appointed officials, their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray that our churches and association will develop multi-housing ministries that include strong evangelism to individuals, couples, and parents and their children.

Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)

That is the reason we have so many ‘mushroom’ converts, because their stony ground is not plowed up; they have not got a conviction of the Law; they are stony-ground hearers.  –George Whitefield

The most beautiful system of sun, planets, and comets could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.  –Sir Isaac Newton

The Law, from the beginning, is made use of as a schoolmaster to bring men to Christ.  –Jonathan Edwards

I love the sinner by telling them how much God hates their sin.  —Mez McConnell.  RG—and why it destroys them!

You don’t have a soul.  You are a soul.  You have a body.  —C. S. Lewis

One good reason why we should pray: it’s because God can do more in a second than what we can do for ourselves in a lifetime.  —unknown

Make each day your masterpiece.  You have control over that.  –John Wooden

Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.  –John Wooden

Twenty seconds before a race, there’s absolute focus.  The key thing is to achieve relaxation, but at the same time you’ve got to have this absolute total control.  You’ve got to find the balance between being totally ready to go and being really at peace with yourself as well.  –Cathy Freeman

The ultimate victory in competition is derived from the inner satisfaction of knowing that you have done your best and that you have gotten the most out of what you had to give.  –Howard Cosell

Leaders aren’t born, they are made.  And they are made just like anything else, through hard work.  And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.  –Vince Lombardi

Put your future in good hands—your own.  --Mark Victor Hansen.  Better yet--God’s.  --Richard Graham

I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.  --Philippians 4:18

Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them.  You will find that they haven’t half the strength you think they have.  --Norman Vincent Peale

For health, vitality, and aliveness, keep on affirming that the powerful life force of God is flowing through your mind, your spirit, your body.  --Norman Vincent Peale

I am only one, but I am one.

I cannot do everything, but I can do something.

And because I cannot do everything,

I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.  --Edward Everett Hale

Today is not won by old victories, nor lost by old defeats.  --unknown

Security is mostly a superstition.  It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.  Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.  Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.  --Helen Keller
