1. Prayer is either nonexistent or mechanical.

2. You know the Word but you don’t really live it.

3. Thoughts about ETERNAL MATTERS no longer grip your heart.


4. You indulge in inward and outward sin without feeling devastated.

5. A longing for holiness and being set apart is no longer a passion.

6. The pursuit of money, possessions and position grossly overshadow your pursuit of Christ.


7. You can listen to worship music that glorifies God and carnal music that glorifies sin with reasoning and justification.

A Dedication Prayer

More videos to Stir up ZEAL for JESUS!

Father God,

I come before you seeking to be overwhelmed - 

with your desires,

with a passion for your will,

with a massive motivation

to echo

your heart of compassion for the lost and lukewarm. 

I am not satisfied with where I am with you.

Psalm 42 inspires me to say,

"As the deer longs for streams of water,

so I long for you, O God.

I am hungry  for your righteousness

to be seen

in my life more and more."

I want to show forth my love for you

in my words,

in my actions,

and in all the depths of my heart. 

I will not live my life giving you

the scraps

of my time and my energy. 

I will place you on the highest throne in my heart.

I will be willing to speak when you want me to speak


be bold when you want me to be bold -

even if my knees are shaking.

Because you mean more to me

than any earthly thing.

And it is my desire that my love for you grow


every day. 

In Jesus' Mighty Name I pray,

Consider our pages:

On Fire for Jesus!


Feeling God's Love


Understanding more about God's love

God calls us to seek to

follow holiness.

But....Somehow Satan has

convinced many in the church

that the word "holy"

is a bad word.

Why would we listen to the one

who comes to

Steal, Kill, and Destroy?

This page examines the Bible term LUKEWARM.
