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 8 – Luke 11.5-8: Then he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend, and he goes to him at midnight and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, because a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him.’  Then the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me.  The door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed.  I can’t get up and give you anything.’  I tell you, though he will not get up and give him the bread because he is his friend, yet because of the man’s boldness he will get up and give him as much as he needs.”

  1. Pray that we will understand that bold intercession for needs, and especially the will of God in this world, are of major importance to God, and always pleasing to Him.
  2. Pray for the Antioch Church of Long Beach, their pastor Rev. Wayne Chaney, his wife Myesha and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  3. Pray for New Hope Community Church of El Monte, their pastor Rev. Tim Sanford, his wife Elvie and their family, their church leaders, including deaf pastor Rev. Steve Lucero and his wife Rosalinda, and associate pastor Rev. Charlie Corum, and congregation.  Pray also for retired pastor Rev. Gil de la Rosa and his wife, Eva.
  4. Pray for the city of Gardena, for their elected and appointed officials, for their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray that Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association churches will give generously to the Cooperative Program throughout the year, and the California Missions Offering which is received each fall.  Pray that our churches will also give generously to the work of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association, their first resource agency.

Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)

Fill your mind with God’s Word and you will have no room for Satan’s lies.  —unknown

Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves. - JUSTICE SCALIA dissenting. 

If 3% of the population can cause so much havoc, think of what we conservatives, properly mobilized, can do!  —Dinesh D’Souza

I have reason to praise him for my trials, for, most probably, I should have been ruined without them.  —John Newton

Success is not final; failure is not fatal.  It is the courage to continue that counts.  —Winston S. Churchill

The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals.  The struggles within yourself—the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us—that’s where it’s at.  —Jesse Owens

When we conquer without danger, our triumph is without glory.  —Pierre Corneille

If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.  —Clint Eastwood

If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, don’t ask what seat—just get on.  —Sheryl Sandberg

Christian, beware of thinking lightly of sin. Take heed in case you fall little by little.  —C. H. Spurgeon

Almost any male can be a father., but it takes a real man to be a Dad.  —unknown

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.  --unknown 

Bob Tolliver:

Hey, folks, with all the "fake news" false accusations, lies, and people bashing, just a reminder to keep five very important facts in mind:

  1. ”If you tell a lie big enough and often enough, people will begin to believe it." -- Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's "Minister of Propaganda”
  2. Saul Alynski's "Rules For Radicals" places strong emphasis on marginalizing the "enemy" (opponent is too mild a word) by constantly accusing, belittling, and badmouthing them, using Hitler and Goebbels as role models.
  3. Communists, Socialists, and other far-left liberals have polished these tactics into a fine art that they use every day on someone with whom they disagree.  The more shocking the statement, the better.
  4. Satan himself is a liar and "the father of all lies", therefore is the ultimate source who uses people as pawns.
  5. Consequently, these moral and social problems are rooted far deeper.
  6. From here you can draw your own conclusions about what' going on these days.
  7. Just saying . . . .

You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.  --unknown

An amateur writes when he feels like it; a professional writes regardless.  --Oscar Wilde

When you get an insight or inspiration, do something about it in 24 hours, or the odds are against your ever acting on it.  --Bill Glass
