Lord, Pour Out Your Liberty

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17 NAS Here we are, less than a month from this year’s National Day of Prayer on May 6th 2021! These are exciting days for our thousands of coordinators who are planning and preparing prayer gatherings from coast-to-coast across America. While our name, ”National Day of Prayer Task Force” can be confusing to some who might think we only work one day a year, we are actually on mission to mobilize unified public prayer for America EVERY day of the year. We... Read more >>

He is Risen!

The Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus from the Gospel of Mark 15:33-16:11 NIV His Death At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah.”Someone ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down,” he said. With a... Read more >>

2021 National Day of Prayer - The Answer is YES!

The answer is YES! With many states having opened up for gatherings, YES, we are planning in-person events around our nation, from east to west, from shore to shore on the National Day of Prayer! YES, a few will gather in Washington D.C., although extremely limited by Capitol and covid restrictions for our National Observance, but thankfully, YES, we will be gathering together virtually that evening for our National Broadcast where we can express united prayer and experience togetherness as a nation right where we live. Through the shutdowns of last year, and all that we have learned this year,... Read more >>

Abundant Love, Abundant Life

John 10:9-10 "I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” NAS As we continue praying through the 2021 National Day of Prayer theme and prayer: “Lord Pour Out Your LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY,” we focused on Jesus being our LORD in January. All of the promises and all that Jesus provided for us can only be claimed if we proclaim Him as our LORD and Savior. You... Read more >>

A Legacy Built on Prayer and Perseverance

“I prayed for freedom for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs.” Frederick Douglass Over 2000 years ago, the Savior of the world fulfilled the greatest demonstration of love humanity will ever know. For the sake of the world being liberated from enslavement to sin, Christ died, that we might be free. Galatians 5:1 says, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” Christ’s obedience to the will of His Father, exhibited a faith willing to go beyond humanity’s unworthiness, willing to subjugate His...

United Prayer – A Lenten and Lengthen Season of United Prayer

“These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer,” Acts 1:14 NAS As we step into the season before Easter known as Lent, we are aware that many Christians do not necessarily observe Lent in its original 40-day fast or other traditions as observed in some denominations, but we can all agree that it is important to remember Jesus’ days, words and events leading up to His crucifixion as well as taking time to prepare our hearts for the celebration of Resurrection Sunday. For the next few weeks leading up to Easter we will be posting Scripture and... Read more >>

A Lesson On True Love

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:1-8  As we approach Valentine’s Day on February 14th, it’s difficult to enter a store without walking past aisles of cards, candies, balloons, and stuffed animals – all professing the same thing, love, or at least a form of it. Songs from every era tell us things like ‘love is all you... Read more >>

The World Will KNOW in the Love we SHOW

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." John 3:34-35 Love is often underestimated; wrongly defined by what we have in mind, what we have experienced in supposed earthly love. Love is not merely an emotion, but it should set us in motion. Not fueled by earthly desires but eternal destinies that are at stake. LOVE, real love, is designed and defined by God alone. Love... Read more >>

Let's Pray on National Freedom Day

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. Romans 8:2 NASB Next week, on February 1st, as a nation, we will observe National Freedom Day, which was established in January of 1949 by Congress and then President, Harry Truman. The law reads: The President may issue each year a proclamation designating February 1 as National Freedom Day to commemorate the signing by Abraham Lincoln on February 1, 1865, of the joint resolution adopted by the Senate and the House of Representatives that proposed the 13th...
