        (07/18/2000) the fear of the Lord
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: the fear of the Lord

[Proverbs 9:10a]
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,

[Deuteronomy 6:13]
Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him, and
shalt swear by his name.

I've always wanted to know what is this fear of the
Lord. Even though both of these words fear are
represented by different words in Hebrew but this word
fear is generally described as fear (of God), respect,
reverence, piety.

My pastor just gave us a revelation on this word fear.
He said the best interpreter of the Bible is Jesus.
And the scripture in Deuteronomy 6:13 is also found in
the new testament quoted by Jesus:

[Matthew 4:10]
Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for
it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,
and him only shalt thou serve.

This is the most excellent description of the word
fear: WORSHIP. Instead of "fearing" the Lord, we
worship Him. That is how Jesus translated the Old
Testament word fear for us. That is the beginning of
wisdom and the beginning of our obeying His Word: to
worship the Lord our God and Him only shall we serve.

2. New prayer requests:
i. Pray for direction on financial problem -- jennifer
I feel embarraseed to ask for help. But, I need not be
too proud for God listens if we ask. I've been on my
own for 3 1/2 years now. I'm trying so hard to provide
my 3 year old son with the things he needs. Right now,
I am not making enough money to pay my bills. When I
pray I can hear God telling me not to worry. But, I
feel I need prayer. I haven't told anyone just my
fiance. He is unable to help because he has many bills
to pay. I also dont want to burden him with my
problems. I thank God that I have enough food and that
I have a warm apartment to live in. I want to get a
second job but I feel I do not want to leave my son
with a babysitter for too long. Also, I attend school
full-time. Please pray that God will give me the
direction I need. That if it is his will to get
another job, then so be it. I am currently looking,
but it is God who works to fullfill his will.
Thank You, Jennifer

3. Prayer update:
i. Perfect health for my mom -- waihun
Dear prayer warriors,
Thank you everyone for praying for my mom. This is the
latest update. She is going to do an axillary lymph
node dissection tomorrow in the hospital. Can you
please lift up the operation into God's hands and ask
for protection? Pray that there will not be any side
effects from the surgery. Please also pray for more
revelation of God and for her to be more open to God.
I'm giving her bible study but she is not as open as
I'd hope she be. Thank you again.
