The endtimes are called "the last days" because at His return the day and night cycle will forever be broken by the eternal light of His glory.

"And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb." (Rev 21:23)

Why Night and Day Worship and Prayer?
"We long to lavish our love on Him in extravagant devotion, let Him have our nearness, let Him hear our voice, and love Him with our all."

#houseofprayer   #europeanhousesofprayer   #247prayer  
At our house of prayer, we long to create a place in our city that goes on 24/7 by filling all 168 hours of every week with raw, passionate and creative worship and prayer. Every now and then I get asked, why we do what we do. Why 24/7 prayer and worship? What drives us is that it impacts God's ...

Quietly he locked the door behind himself, turned off the lights and went down on his knees. He knew that the beauty he longed for could not be seen with eyes open.

I am my Beloved’s, and His desire is for me (Song 7:11)

His desire is toward us, and therefore He became a poor Man, a lonely Man, a weary Man, and a thirsty Man to win our hearts. His desire is toward us, and therefore He suffered, bled and died to make us like Himself. His desire is toward us; and therefore is He coming again to receive us unto Himself that where He is we may be also. He seems to say, "I want you; I can dispense with your riches, your abilities, and even your service, but I cannot do without you. I want you so much that I became a poor Man to win your heart; I want you so much that I died to make you like Myself; I want you so much that soon I am coming for you to have you with Myself." And as we enter into His thoughts toward us, well may we each exclaim, with great delight, "I am my Beloved's, and His desire is toward me."

That's a great Mike Bickle quote! Two days ago I was talking with someone about intimacy with Jesus and shared Song 7:11 with them and my heart came alive in the process. It's time to pray and meditate on this Scripture more often again. Such a powerful truth with such a dynamic impact on our emotions!

May these words describe your life in 2015:
"They entered into the covenant (a fresh commitment) to seek the Lord God of their fathers with all their heart and soul. All Judah rejoiced concerning the oath (they delighted in their commitments even when they were costly), for they had sworn with their whole heart and had sought Him earnestly, and He let them find Him (God responded with supernatural encounters and fresh revelation of who He is). So the Lord gave them rest on every side (He satisfied their most basic needs as well as their deepest desires)." (2 Chr 15:12.15)

Happy new year, everyone!

The Highest Level of Meekness & Humility

"Malicious witnesses rise up. They ask me of things that I do not know. They repay me evil for good, to the bereavement of my soul. But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth. I humbled my soul with fasting, and my prayer kept returning to my bosom. I went about as though it were my friend or brother. I bowed down mourning, as one who sorrows for a mother." - Psalm 35:11-14

Mourning deeply over the distress of your enemies (those who mistreat you), praying earnestly and fasting for them from the bottom of your heart... This is when you realize why David was called a man after God's own heart.

All across the globe, God is creating dwelling places for His presence by marking people with a desire for non-stop worship and prayer. Have you ever wished for a place in your city where worship never stops? Then He's already started making you a part of the answer.

Es liegt Gott brennend auf dem Herzen, dass eine Standby-Leitung zwischen uns und IHM geschaltet ist, die ununterbrochen steht. Dazu müssen wir mit Hingabe bereit sein, die uns alles kostet. Erst dann wird es wirkliche Veränderungen geben, in Herzen, Häusern, Gemeinden, Städten.

She sat down on the metro after a long day of work and took a deep breath. At last she had time for only Him. With eyes closed she entered the sacred garden of her heart. He was still there. He never leaves.

All sorrow abruptly vanished from his eyes as he raised his head to look Disappointment straight in the face and whispered with fierce determination, "I will not be offended at Him."

When you're having a tender moment with the Lord at Starbucks and suddenly a barista comes over to ask you a question and you look at them with tearful eyes... "Is everything ok, sir?" Yes, couldn't be better...

Today while watching Hunger Games 3 at the movies, this guy next to me kept talking to his friends. So I prayed that God would make him keep quiet. He then left. :D

Oh no! I hate the people who keep talking at a movie theater. Bad manner! I'm glad that God listened to you and the guy left.

After a week in the prayer room I was a wreck. His voice was so clear, His nearness so tangible, my heart so tender, I was weeping at songs that I didn't even like. That's what night and day prayer and worship do to you. I've been ruined for anything less and missing it ever since.

My favorite Starbucks in Karlsruhe. Spacious, comfortable armchairs, good atmosphere and music. Free WiFi. No problem to stay longer than your drink lasts, bring Laptop or books. Staff is very friendly, approachable and chatty. Downsides: Kinda crowded during the weekend and on rainy days so that you might not get a seat. Sometimes a little dirty. Toilets often broken or very dirty.

Spacious 2-story McDonald's that's never too crowded to find a seat. Has McCafé. Modern-style interior. Mostly clean. Long business hours. Can sit upstairs to avoid busyness. Downsides: Staff seems stoic. Might have long lines around noon. Dude collecting money at bathroom entrance.

Relaxed atmosphere, clean and beautiful. Food looks appetizing and is tasty, especially the decent sized pizzas. Prices are reasonable. Crowded in the evening. Service is downside of this place, seems stressed, distracted and often a little unfriendly.

Located in a beautiful alley near the Notre Dame, this restaurant offers a very nice atmosphere at an affordable price. I really enjoyed the traditional country-style furnishing which makes it a very cozy place to eat out. Even though it tends to be crowded, I didn't find it too loud. The staff speaks French, English and German, which is a big plus. The menu is available in all three languages as well. The service was quick and friendly. I enjoyed the tartes flambées as well, the primary reason we wanted to eat here. But they also offer a reasonable selection of other primarily French dishes. We also got to see a tarte flambée being set on fire - one of the fascinating spectacles you get to see when ordering the tarte flambée with alcohol. It's been a worthwhile experience!

Döner/Yufka at best value for money in all of Karlsruhe. Only 2,50 EUR while still being a full serving! Friendly staff with genuine smiles. Downsides: Atmosphere, sparse furnishing and decoration, visually not attractive place.
