Dear PCF family, 4 days ago we gathered as a Christian family and we worshipped the greatest event that has ever occured in the history of the world. Jesus rose from the dead and is now alive and active sitting at the right hand of  God the Father in heaven where he is interceding for all of us constantly, 24/7, 365 days a year. He never stops. He is there right now as you are reading this interceding for His people. Four days ago and where are our hearts today?

Are you still celebrating? Do you still realize what has been accomplished through the sacrifice of Jesus? Or have the troubles of the week already taken you down? That is exactly what the enemy does. He comes to steal your joy, kill your dreams and hopes and destroy your faith and confidence. Listen, that is his strategy but you can overcome that strategy by claiming what Jesus has accomplished for you.  Jesus is your King and your savior, He loves you. He has died for you.  The only thing that is keeping Jesus’ power from dominating your life is having a weak connection to the vine. When you feel the devil getting the upper hand there is only one cure and that is to go to prayer, go to the bible, get with other Christians that will pray with you and for you. We were not meant to do this battle alone. That is why we gather. And the gathering should not just be on a Sunday for an hour but throughout the week. The harder your circumstances the more time you need to spend in prayer, bible reading and being with other believers. Read your bible daily! Pray without ceasing! Call another believer, ask and you shall receive, seek and you will find, and knock and the door will be opened! Don’t do the battle alone.  That is why our prayer requests are so important:
