In the great days of steam, boiler rooms powered everything from vast machines in factories to household heating systems. A boiler room was a powerhouse, a driving force, a place of pressure and creative energy. From the furnace came power. Of course a boiler room was also functional, dirty and hot, often tucked away in the basement. It wasn’t a comfortable or pretty setting for entertaining or relaxing. The boiler room was a place of essential, hidden labour. This Boiler Room imagery is an eloquent metaphor for the function of a prayer house in any community. As we stoke the fires of intercession— often hard work done in secret—power is released to energise God’s house and his purposes in the surrounding area.

So many people are interested in making a point. Isn't it better to make a difference? Live from the passion to make a difference. It will change your life and quite possibly the life of someone who desperately needs it.

In Psalm 46:1 He is called "an ever-present help in times of trouble." It is the nature of God to stay fully present to every individual who desires His attention. As we lean in to Him, we learn to live in that part of His nature within us! Enjoy Emmanuel. "God with us, God in us, God for us in every situation." Abiding in God, refusing to worry about time, and living in the now, bends the constricts of time and improves the quality of life.

In the name of Jesus Christ, who was never in a hurry, we pray, O God, that You will slow us down, for we know that we live too fast. With all of eternity before us, make us take time to live.

Our entire being is fashioned as an instrument of praise. Just as a master violin maker designs an instrument to produce maximum aesthetic results, so God tailor-made our bodies, souls and spirits to work together in consonance to produce pleasing expressions of praise and worship. When we use body language to express praise, that which is internal becomes visible.

The political spirit would love to divide even the church, so she fights herself instead of the injustices. If we aren’t careful in this season, the rips in the world will become rips in God’s House, and we will no longer be able to mend the broken hearts we are here for.

Prayer invades the hours after morning devotions as we turn every burden into "Help me," every pleasure into "Thank you," every temptation into "Deliver me," and every opportunity for obedience into "Strengthen me." Prayer is more than a slot in our schedule; it is the reflex of our hearts, the aroma of our waking hours.

Let no Christian parents fall into the delusion that Sunday School is intended to ease them of their personal duties. The first and most natural condition of things is for Christian parents to train up their own children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Does it make sense to pray for guidance about the future if we are not obeying in the thing that lies before us today? How many momentous events in Scripture depended on one person’s seemingly small act of obedience! Rest assured: Do what God tells you to do now, depend upon it, you will be shown what to do next.

Today, I will face my problems, unwrap them and seek to understand their component parts by spreading them out before the Lord, thank Him in advance for what He's going to do, follow orders for what I am to do, and stand by to watch His miracles.
