Northeast NAL Serves the Lord with Power and Perseverance

When Mary Bruce first stepped into leadership with the National Day of Prayer, it was a bit unintentional—what she didn’t see was the Lord unfolding a powerful saga in her life. In 1993 the governor of Connecticut refused to sign a proclamation for the National Day of Prayer, and Mary Bruce was indignant. The Lord gave her strength and determination to mobilize efforts to push state legislators to sign a citation, the legislative version of a proclamation. After this powerful move from the Lord and Mary’s obedience, she was asked to be the Connecticut state coordinator. Her reaction? “I’m a... Read more >>

Search Me, Heal Me, Lead Me

Psalm 139: 23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.

Celebrate Pentecost with Us!

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.  Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven.

Finding Wisdom in Prayer
