Praise Report - Washington D.C. Congressional Observance

Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name!  Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.  Psalm 103:1-2 NJKV As I reflect back on all of the answers to prayer during the week of the National Day of Prayer in Washington, DC, my heart is very full.  God surely answered more abundantly than I could have thought to have asked. My schedule during each day of the week was packed from early morning to late at night.  It included three national television interviews, two national radio interviews, the... Read more >>

First Thursday Call to Prayer, April 6, 2017

For Your Great Name’s Sake IMMANUEL:  GOD WITH US …They will call him Immanuel— which means, “God with us.”[1] We worship You on this final prayer call before the National Observance of the National Day of Prayer as our Immanuel.  We stand in awe that You would leave Heaven’s throne, confine Yourself to a woman’s womb for nine months, submit to the human birth process, then enter time and space in order to be with us!

Pray for America - Now!

You don’t have to look far to see the burdens and deep needs upon our beloved nation.  I believe you and I are living in an appointed period, unprecedented in our lifetimes in America.

Therein lies the God opportunity for us now. The opportunity is prayer itself to our Lord God, Who really is ALL mighty.  Talking to Him, listening and obeying in response... Read more >>
