Bold, Earnest, and Fervent Prayers
By Dr. Joey Krol   |   07.13.21
Shortly after Dallas Seminary was founded in the early 1920’s, it came to the point of bankruptcy and almost folded. On the morning it was to be foreclosed, the founders and leaders of the school met in the president's office to pray that God would provide.

Harry Ironside was present at that prayer meeting. He boldly prayed, "Lord, we know that the cattle on a thousand hills are Thine. Please sell some of them and send us the money."

In the Gospels, often we see Jesus going to a secluded place to spend time with the Father in prayer.  We are blessed to have some of the prayers of Jesus recorded in the Holy Scriptures. One of the most intimate prayers our Lord prayed was in the Garden of Gethsemane. Moments before His arrest, Jesus’ humanity was on display as He poured His heart out to the Father.

Time to Fervently Seek God
By Dr. Joey Krol   |   09.17.20
King Jehoshaphat was the ruler of Judah for 25 years from 873 to 848 BC. He had his good and bad moments as a leader, but ultimately, his desire was to honor the Lord, despite his spiritual fumbles during his reign. According to 2 Chronicles 20, the Moabites, Ammonites, and Meunites gathered to attack Jehoshaphat and his kingdom.

How would he respond to these enemy forces coming against him?
The Holder of Our Tomorrow
By Dr. Joey Krol   |   08.12.20
This year has been a very, very interesting year. Some will say it has been a difficult year. Others will say that it’s been a frustrating year. But all would agree that it’s been an unforgettable year.  My last message to my Church before the “shutdown” was a prophetic one, without even knowing it.  It was one that God knew that I and our Church family needed to hear.

By Dr. Joey Krol   |   01.11.19
It seems like Satan is getting a lot of “positive nods” in the last couple of months.  In December, the Secretary of State’s office at the Illinois Capital in Springfield allowed the Satanic Temple in Chicago to add a monument, which was placed next to the Nativity Scene for Christmas and the Menorah to mark Hanukkah.
