Purim Blessings

We have for at 2 weeks been celebrating Purim, the feast remembering Esther, Mordecai, and the TURNAROUND a hidden God created through these faithful servants, when a wicked enemy wanted to annihilate the entire people of God.

We were told by Pastor Mahesh Chavda that we would have a blessing if we would read Esther in this season. We noted how anti-semitism was being voiced as never before in our Congress. We now celebrate what Prime Minister Netanyahu is calling “a Purim miracle” in having our president declare that the Golan Heights are an integral part of Israel (as they were when they were given to the tribes of Dan and Mannasseh, the occupants now not living, and even though the British illegally gave it away, and even though it was taken in the War of 1967 in response to an attack on Israel.)

Remembering the blessings of Abraham, we rejoice. We, in alignment with the authority we are under, receive and release Purim blessings of turnaround. Further, a lamb for a household. The blessings are for you and your household. Please see Pastors Chavda speaking blessing over families, including those attacked by divorce and drugs.  March 24, 2019

Series on Prayer

If you want a quick but deep and impactful series on prayer, “tune in” to http://www.greatshalom.org.  In 4 weeks there will be a series about prayer: how to start in a life of prayer, how to receive answers, how to go deep in communion with God, and particularly how to pray for your children. You may listen right on the website or you may wish to subscribe to the podcast – on the site, on iTunes or however you prefer.

We take personal prayer seriously — not as a strict rule, but as an inviting, intriguing, refreshing, joyous time. It is worth doing. It is worth diving into deeply. There have been too many “you must do this” and not enough deep dives. This series gives you both.
