Our Father 

June 17, 2017

“Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.” 

Tomorrow is Father’s Day in the USA. A day when we honor our fathers. To some the day is a happy occasion. New fathers look at their babies and have joy in their new child. Some people are sadden on the day because their father has passed away or has abandoned the family. A day of mixed emotions. To the Christian, we know we have a Heavenly Father who loves us, and is always there, just a prayer away. We can call Him, Abba Father, which is translated “Daddy” in the English language.

Galatians 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Is Your Battery Recharged?

June 13, 2017

SOS Events Ministry owns a van that is used to transport things needed for events and to pick up materials and supplies. It runs very well if it is used often and is kept well maintained. However, sometimes it will not be used for several months and the battery runs down.  Then it will not run until we recharge the battery. Christian life is exactly like that. If we do not maintain our hearts and minds in good spiritual condition we will run down and we can not be effective for the Lord. Our “batteries” need recharging daily by reading our Bible, prayer and seeking God’s will and blessing each day.

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Got Problems?

June 7, 2017

Are you hurting from problems, physical, financial or spiritual? Do not be discouraged, look to the One who can bring comfort to you, the Lord Jesus. Also, seek help from others. Physical, God gave us doctors and medicine to help us with our health problems. Financial, there are many good godly programs available to help you get out of debt. Spiritual, read your Bible daily and talk to a Pastor or Councilor who can help you have victory over the problem. 

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Direct Line

May 31, 2017

Today when we want to communicate via phone we have freedom to talk (or text) anywhere, anytime without having to be in one place to use the phone as this child in the picture. Prayer is like that. We do not have to be in a specific place only able to speak to God in church or at a designated time of day. God is always ready to hear our prayers directly without any person, place or thing. Jesus is the reason we have a direct line to God. 

Luke 11:2 And (Jesus) he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven,

Pray for Us

March 21, 2017

“If you’ve got time to pray, God’s got time to listen.” Please pray for Chasco Fiesta held in New Port Richey, Fl starting on Saturday, March 25. SOS Events will have a booth there with volunteers who want to see souls saved. Pray for the workers and the unsaved to come to Christ at this event.

1 Thessalonians 5:25 Brethren, pray for us.

 

Joy, Faithful Servant

November 28, 2016

One of SOS Events charter members of our Senior Servants needs prayer. Joy, a perfect name for this season, is in the hospital and needs our prayers. She has worked with SOS Events for many years and learned how to win souls at the Strawberry Festival. 

Several years ago, Tom Curtis was introducing Joy to someone at church, telling them how she won her first soul to the Lord and Joy spoke up and said, “Three, Tom, I led three to the Lord.”

Please pray for her today as she needs to be healed.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Thankful for Family

November 21, 2016

Family is a great blessing! Large or small our family is something to be thankful for. We are especially blessed if our family are Christians. Then not only do we have earthly ties but we have spiritual bonding as well.  

If your family or some of the members are not Christians there are still wonderful things we can be thankful for in our relationships to each of them. Think of a good quality in that person. Maybe they have a great sense of humor or are a good example in one area. I think of my alcoholic grandfather, he always tried to help me with problems. My mother who taught me how to be hospitable even if there was not much money or provisions. Be thankful and if they are still living and pray for them. My parents were saved shortly before their deaths after 30 years of prayer. Remember God is faithful and wants that loved one to be saved or restored back to fellowship if they are backslidden. 

Ephesians 1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

Pray for Our Leaders

November 10, 2016

We need unity and peace. The media has helped to create discord in our country. Christians, instead of watching the chaos take that time to pray for our leaders that they will be calm and seek Godly council. Now is the time for the USA to unite as one nation under God.

1 Timothy 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

Prayer-First or Last?

October 25, 2016
