5 Ways Christians Should Pray Following a Mass Shooting

Today, welcomes guest writer, Dr. Jeremy Roberts. Jeremy is the Lead Pastor at Brushy Creek Baptist Church in Taylors, SC. The mass school shooting that took place in South Florida was a tragic act of violence that shows demonic activity is alive. This shooting was purely from Satan. It was anti-God. It was evil. We have a desperate need for God’s peace. (If you’ve been away from the news cycle, here are the details.) Now is the time to turn to God in prayer. I encourage you to pray through several Psalms as you process what happened at Marjory... Read more >>

Christians Need to Begin Making Every Effort to Live in Unity, Part 2

On Monday, I shared part one of this article, where we discussed God’s desire for the Church to live in unity. If you missed it, please take a moment to read it here. Let’s Choose to Make Every Effort to Live in Unity The words of Ephesians 4:3 are inescapable. It says, “Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” We cannot live out Ephesians 4:3 apart from God’s grace that we have received freely. Nor can we live out Ephesians 4:3 until we cultivate and live out the truth of Ephesians 4:2,... Read more >>

Christians Need to Begin Making Every Effort to Live in Unity, Part 1

People need each other. Following having a relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ, our greatest need is each other. God believes this so much that at the moment of salvation, we become part of Jesus’ family, His Church! This occurs just as stated in 1 Corinthians 12:13, “For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body.” While this happens to us spiritually, we are living in a culture that is completely opposite of this. The American way compels us to live independently of one another. This leads to a selfish and oftentimes destructive life. It also... Read more >>

3 Prayer Priorities in America for February 2018

What a National Day of Prayer Gathering Should Look Like This Year

One of the most often asked questions I receive is: What should a National Day of Prayer gathering or observance look like this year? I have thought a lot about this and I would like to suggest the following for your consideration. Keep the Local Context in Mind While some gatherings may be newly created, many have been occurring for a few years or more. Each one is distinct in its own setting. For example, while some may be categorized as a Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast, other prayer gatherings on this day may be on the steps of your city hall,... Read more >>

February 2018 : Three Prayer Priorities for America

As we enter the month of February of 2018, I am asking you and your ministry to join us in praying for these three prayer priorities for our nation. How awesome it would be if we could mobilize thousands of ministries and churches to unite together in prayer for the United States of America. Please share these with friends, pastors, churches, denominations, networks, ministries, and Christian media. The more people we have praying together about the same things in our nation, the more we will see God move us forward together. We will be praying for unity in America for... Read more >>

The Spiritual State of the Union 2018

On Tuesday, Jan. 30, President Donald Trump will take the podium before a joint session of Congress and deliver his second State of the Union address. He’ll do so in accordance to Article Two, Section 3, of the U.S. Constitution, which says the president “shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union.” “Union” is a strange word in present-day America — for our country seems anything but united. In fact, I cannot remember a time when our divisions have been more pronounced to the naked eye. The battle lines have been drawn... Read more >>

Taking the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 3, into Your Workplace

Just think what might happen if you brought a National Day of Prayer gathering into your workplace, welcoming anyone who might attend. The National Day of Prayer is recognized on the first Thursday of every May across our nation, and may provide a natural way to engage in prayer in your workplace. We encourage everyone to participate in a community gathering, but taking part in a gathering for prayer for America in your workplace may be a great bonus. Some will be unable to attend community gatherings due to work schedules or family responsibilities. Others may not feel comfortable in... Read more >>
