The Prayer of Habakkuk

  • In what ways COVID-19 has impacted the local economy and even spiritual life negatively?
  • What do we learn from Habakkuk in such challenging times and how do we apply these lessons to our individual and collective lives?
  • Joy must characterize the life of a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. If there is no joy in your daily life, please watch as there is certainly a spiritual leak. Ask yourself these diagnostic questions: Am I complaining often? Do I have the tendency to blame others for almost everything? Do I talk to myself negatively? Do I dwell in my past successes or failures? Do I resist to change? Do I want to please everybody (which by way is am impossible task)? Do I doubt God’s wonderful plan for my life? Do I neglect my Bible study, church attendance, and prayer life? I am hiding to commit sin or life my life like an ungodly person without a respectful fear of God? Am I jealous? Am I envious? Am I afraid of what will happen to me given my current life circumstances? Bring these issues to the Lord in prayer and your will enjoy His peace and joy.

“Considérons cette période comme un temps de grâce pour nous arrêter et regarder dans quelle folie nous avons marché jusqu’ici. Notre vie était devenue une course effrénée, où nous n’avions même plus le temps de réfléchir.
C’est pourquoi, aujourd’hui, je voudrais que nous nous concentrions ensemble sur les choix fondamentaux que nous devrions faire dans notre vie de tous les jours. Premièrement : Réalisons que nous ne pouvons pas mettre notre confiance dans les hommes. Nos représentants politiques, qui nous avaient promis un monde meilleur, n’honorent pas les engagements pour lesquels ils ont été élus, et les prévisions de nos grands spécialistes humains, sont presque tous les jours remises en cause … Si vous voulez approfondir ce sujet je vous conseille de regarder cette vidéo” Jean-Louis Gaillard

“The Best Coronavirus Prevention” with Doug Batchelor and Dr. Neil Nedley

Living like a millionaire with a dollar a day: a tribute to a spiritual giant

When our tears lose their vocabulary,

When our loss frightens the ordinary,

When any type of paper runs from ink,

When the boat of our joy wants to sink,

Lord, we will still praise you.


Truly we miss our father Jack Murray.

Emptiness is coloring everything with fury

Two types of tears gain in altitude:

Tears of sorrow and tears of gratitude.

Lord, show us what to do.


The architect of the Francophone University,

Has silently vacated the city.

The Board conference room is weeping.

Diplomas and awards are sleeping.

Is this an academic coup?


He was an excellent mentor.

He was a living bookstore.

He was a friend always on our side

When life pushed us aside.

His heart was always true.


Jack embraced the universe.

He welcomed the diverse.

He always had a word of prayer

For anyone finding life hard to bear

And for those who are thriving too.


He lived like a millionaire

With a dollar a day.

He gave like a billionaire

With joy in every way.

Your servant truly honored you.


Lord, teach us how to catch Jack’s passion

For spiritual generosity without ration.

Move all the fibers of our soul,

In the direction of Your scroll,

Never again to say adieu.


Moussa Bongoyok with Jim and Nancy Kyser, and Fred and Marjorie Krauss.
