Honoring America's Pastor

In Opening Address at NRB Proclaim 18, Pastor Ronnie Floyd Says Spiritual Awakening Is Key to American Unity

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — In his opening address at the National Religious Broadcasters Proclaim 18 convention, Dr. Ronnie Floyd, president of the National Day of Prayer, called upon the church to lead America back toward national unity by praying for spiritual revival. Speaking to those in attendance, including Vice President Mike Pence and HUD secretary Dr. Ben Carson, Floyd said that the solution for America’s divisions is spiritual not political. “The keys to unity in our country are revival in churches and a great awakening in our society,” said Floyd. Floyd also challenged the Christian community to lead by modeling the... Read more >>

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 >>
