By Penny Cooke | January 28, 2021

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,  for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 1 Timothy 2:1-2 In the verse above, we are told to pray for our…

Our Last Minute God

By Penny Cooke | January 12, 2021

Were you taught to not wait until the last minute, maybe for studying for a test, finishing a project or leaving for an appointment? Some people can’t stand the stress it will cause, while others live off the adrenaline rush they require to get things done. My husband recently asked me why I waited til…

Peace on Earth is Not Cancelled

By Penny Cooke | December 16, 2020

A wall hanging at Hobby Lobby gripped my attention last week. The round, six-inch plaque simply said, “Peace on earth.” A cynical part of me scoffed, yeah right. What peace? Is peace on earth even possible? We see anything but peace today – political unrest, rebellion against the things of God, religious liberty threatened, heightened…

Prayer Is Not Cancelled!

By Penny Cooke | November 5, 2020

It’s been a grueling year, hasn’t it? As though the virus and lockdowns weren’t enough, the presidential campaign has been just as disturbing. I know we’re all worn out. Perhaps we could use a little encouragement, and there’s no better place to find it than through prayer and God’s Word. There’s only one thing on…

Prayerdemic Prayers – His Plan Is Not Cancelled

By Penny Cooke | October 26, 2020

Albert Einstein observed, “The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know.” This epiphany can be one of life’s many rude awakenings. And it certainly seems truer than ever these days – the more the media tells us, the more we don’t know. We become more confused and less informed. All…

Prayerdemic Prayers – His Mercy Is Not Cancelled

By Penny Cooke | October 15, 2020

God’s mercy is not cancelled – yet. As I referred to in my last blog, Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn warns, “We are at a dangerous moment in our nation’s history. Will we return to God and His ways, or pass the point of no return?” What does it mean to pass the point of no…

Prayedemic Prayers – His Call to Return to Him Is Not Cancelled

By Penny Cooke | October 2, 2020

God’s call for us to return to Him is not cancelled – yet. ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Return to Me,” says the LORD of hosts, “and I will return to you,” says the LORD of hosts. Zecharaih 1:3   Did you watch the simulcast or replay of the The Return, a gathering in…

Prayerdemic Prayers – His Commandments Are Not Cancelled

By Penny Cooke | September 17, 2020

Have you ever been in an airplane on a cloudy day? You can’t see a thing as the plane soars through dense clouds. It’s as though the clouds cancel the sun. But once you rise above them, there it is – the sun in all its brilliance. We are living in a time when some…

Prayerdemic Prayers – History Is Not Cancelled

By Penny Cooke | September 10, 2020

“Be careful.” “Drive safely.” Why do we tell our loved ones such things? Because history has shown us what can go wrong if we’re not careful. We want them to observe the laws put in place for their safety, like stop signs. Experience teaches where those stop signs should be. A stolen stop sign once…

Prayerdemic Prayers – Heaven’s Armies Are Not Cancelled

By Penny Cooke | September 3, 2020

During my son’s 13-year drug addiction, I was encouraged by a statement a friend made about “angels fighting with swords” for my son. Do you think angels were really fighting for my son? There are hundreds of references in the Bible to God’s name being The Lord of Hosts, or Lord of Heaven’s Armies (Jehovah…
