Genesis 28:15-17  “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”  16 Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.” 17 And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”
Jacob seems to understand that the House of God is the gate of heaven.  The gates in ancient cities were the place where the elders would discuss things that concerned their city, strategize about the future and how to defend their home.
Pray today that the church in America will see their church as the gate of heaven – a place where people are to gather to pray and see God open the heavens and that blessing would pour out upon our land once again.
