When I saw their fear, I rose and spoke to the nobles, the officials, and the rest of the people: "Do not be afraid of them; remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses."

The battle raged against the returning Jews, who tried to rebuild and reoccupy the city of Jerusalem. Much like today, the battle rages on throughout the world, as we seem to be racing headlong to destruction. New agendas, invasions, green initiatives, gays battling for the lives of our children... the list goes on as we seem to be those who sleep and slumber as destruction approaches. We battle not against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities... we fight on our knees in prayer. Don't focus on the minors and miss the majors happening around us.

Pastor Russell


"I'm Okay, I'm Good"--Answers we've often heard. At times we come to church burdened, and we go home taking the same burden, rather than asking for prayer. Don't take your burdens home with you today.

Prayer Points

Lahaina Rebuild - Prayer for our Sister Churches - We stand in the gap for our fellow Calvary Chapels, many going through things of transition, some even going through pilikia. We stand in a tenuous place, praying for the wellbeing of the church. Don't discount our effectiveness as we pray for God's best for the church family.

River of Life Mission - As the volume of meals and ministry opportunities have ramped up at the River of Life Mission, please keep all the staff and guests, as well as the neighboring community, in prayer.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem - As the Middle East heats up, pray for the nation of Israel along with all of those in this region who have come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
