The 1st Thing Must Be 1st Again
/

Matthew Chapter 6 beginning at verse 31, “Therefore do not worry saying, ‘What shall we eat, what shall we drink or what shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek, for your heavenly father knows that you need these things, but seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

I think I know the reason why there are so few prayer meetings in America today. We erred in our earlier prayers by letting them be so focused on our own needs and our own provisions. Having prospered as with the church in Laodicea, we no longer see the need to pray because we have all acquired what we thought would make us secure. Jesus called this condition wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked. Today we need to cast off this condition and begin again to seek first the kingdom of God.

It’s time to pray.

    Pastor Conlon pleas pray for me in Norway I have lost my church and now I am alone I feel God wants to send me to another church I struggle because there is no love in the the churches I have been in. I can not be honest there is no communication just repeating they do not understand how to love I think you would find more love with rocks then norwegian churches I do not know all of them but there is truly a fall here in Norway I feel that there are almost no Christians left in Norway they have become pale and they allow that which they know to be wrong and still they allow music to take over where it is more important how the sound sounds then people actually singing to God sometimes the meting feels more like American Idol then a church meting. One church said something I never heard before that the christmas tree is a sign for the tree of life which I always heard is pagan. I know of one church that have not fallen but I need strength to go there because I feel spiritual anxious I feel I have no one who wants to even help get there and I have mentioned my situation for years but the church situation is getting worse and worse to the point that a man I believe where sent from God told me it is time for you to go to this other church that why I left but I haven't moved I do not even know how I will move but I feel peace about that place but here where I am now feels horrible I feel like I am on the sea and I am sinking down deeper and deeper into the dark deep sea. They do not fear God anymore and many allow the government to give them money instead of God providing the money for the church. The fear of God is not hear anymore they do not love God or the people money is always mentioned and is a focus I feel that is has become their false god. One church offers that people could pay about 150 dollars to learn healing. They have taken down and sold churches to muslims that make them into mosks they took the cross down in December. They said that the muslims might be saved because it used to be their church so they may feel the spirit still there to me that is blasphemy.
