Day Four of Seeking


“Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done.” (Matthew 6:10)

This is often said easily, but more difficult to practice.  We say that we want what God has for us, but this task can become extremely difficult when it takes us on a path we don’t want to travel…or requires of us something we just don’t want to do.

As we continue to seek His face, we understand the total inability to save ourselves, and we understand there is no help for us outside of the Lord.  We want His help, we crave His Presence and we desire to be better people…but oh the struggle we have!  I find that even when I would do good, evil is present (Romans 7:21).

Recognizing our total dependence on His grace…our total inability to save ourselves…our lack of ability to live the life, we must submit to the arrival of His Kingdom in our life!  We must submit ourselves much like the drowning person submits to the strength and skill of the rescuer.

When His Kingdom comes and His will is done, it will include sweet fellowship with the Maker of the Universe…it will include the Presence of the Holy Spirit and it will give us the victory.

I heard that the COGOP officials were meeting in upper room all night tonight for prayer. I wanted to ask sincerely if you all could call our son, LEE COLLINS', name out in prayer? He is 19 yrs old & desperately lost in sin. He's been a Christian but when he left, he left hard. Is denying there's a heaven & hell. Has at one time claimed to be agnostic. Been in drugs, drinking, & all kinds of bad stuff, including bad spiritual things. Only God can break the demonic strongholds on Lee's life. My husband & I are fasting for him now & have been praying for him for awhile. Nothing is impossible w/ God! Not even Lee! Please pray for God's mercy & grace upon our son & that Lee will give his life to God COMPLETELY & FOREVER! Never to turn back! Thank you!

Here is a copy of a correspondence I received from Ray Ammons this morning. I have known him for about thirty years and have heard good reports all that time. If you would like to consider Ray to minister in your church, his contact information is below:

Bishop E.C. McKinley
Dear Brother,
I am sending you a synopsis of my ministry, and my desire to work in evangelism in your States.
I preached my first message at 12 years old.

I began weekend revivals at 14 and spent my 14th summer in revivals.  My wife and I were National Evangelists working with Elwood Matthews.  I have many years of experience in Revivals. We were pastors for 32 years.  I worked as a chaplain and counselor with juveniles locked up in prison for the last 10 years and evangelized on the weekend. 
I have retired from Kentucky state government and wish to evangelize. I wish to do so in your state/territory.
I believe my calling assignment from our Lord is to be a Demonstrator. I truly believe when I preach there will be a d…
