"On that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: We have a strong city; He sets up victory like walls and bulwarks. Open the gates, so that the righteous nation that keeps faith may enter in. Those of steadfast mind You keep in peace-in peace because they trust in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord God, you have an everlasting rock" (Isaiah 26:1-4).
You are my strength and my song. In You I put my hope; in You I put my trust. Not in the cities of the nations, but in the city of our God alone can we find our peace. Not in our righteousness, but in the righteousness of the steadfast love and tender mercy of our God alone can we enter into the security and rest You've prepared for those who trust in You.
Open the gates of Your mercy. Open the gates of Your love. Open the gates of Your peace. Fill our hearts with songs of praise; fill our mouths with shouts of victory. You are our everlasting rock, who will never falter and never fail. This is the promise of life You have for all will choose to live in the city of our God. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
Friends, thank you for your prayers for us this past week at Breakthrough Church in Juneau, Alaska (http://breakthroughalaska.com) We've seen the Lord move deeply and mightily with inner healing, deliverance, and prophetic ministry! This week we'll have some personal ministry appointments with people, along with a few days of rest. This weekend, we'll be ministering at Cowboy Church at Whitehorse Riding Stables in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada on Saturdy Night July 28 at 6PM and Sunday July 29 at 1PM. Please keep us in prayer. We praise God for our great friend and intercessor, Linda Coulter who provided the way for us to come and minister in Alaska! And we praise God for you and all who cover us in prayer and support us in ministry that allow us to go where the Lord sends us.
If you would like to be part of our Interactive Intercessory Prayer Team, please send a note to Heather Butler, our Pastor of Prayer Ministries, who lives in Wales but coordinates our team through the internet: PrayerLead@Messiah-Ministries.org
