Let Heaven and Nature Sing

Let Heaven and Nature Sing 1 Chronicles 16: 31-35 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; And let them say among the nations, "The LORD reigns." Let the sea roar, and all it contains; Let the field exult, and all that is in it. Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the LORD; For He is coming to judge the earth. O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Then say, "Save us, O God of our salvation, And gather us and deliver us from the... Read more >>

Make Room for a Miracle

Luke 9:13-17 But He said to them, "You give them something to eat!" And they said, "We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless perhaps we go and buy food for all these people." (For there were about five thousand men.) And He said to His disciples, "Have them sit down to eat in groups of about fifty each." They did so, and had them all sit down. Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed them, and broke them, and kept giving them to the disciples to... Read more >>

From Stormy Days to Glory and Praise

Mark 4:37-41 And there arose a fierce gale of wind, and the waves were breaking over the boat so much that the boat was already filling up. Jesus Himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?" And He got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Hush, be still." And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm. And He said to them, "Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?" They became very much afraid... Read more >>

Hold Fast

Psalm 139:7-10 says, “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.” We have been praying for you! There are so many challenges, crisis, and catastrophic events happening around us. I recently heard someone call out, “hang in there!” While this... Read more >>

National Prayer in Response to the Coronavirus

Greetings. On Sunday March 15th, the National Day of Prayer Task Force will be hosting additional prayer calls throughout the day in response to President Trump’s call for a National Day of Prayer in response to the current coronavirus pandemic.

Prayer and Fasting

“Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread." But He answered and said, "It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.' " Matthew 4:1-4 We have been praying for you during this Lenten and Lengthened Season of Prayer that began last week.... Read more >>

Lenten and Lengthened Season of Prayer

“Let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;” Hebrews 10:22-23 NASB As the Lenten season begins, we are challenged to reflect and prepare in prayer for Easter. Even if you do not come from a denominational background that observes Lent we want to encourage you to take these 40 days to pray and respond to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ....

Glory Through the Generations

“Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts. They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty— and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They tell of the power of your awesome works— and I will proclaim your great deeds. They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.” Psalm 145:3-7 NIV Education and Family are two of the seven “Mountains of Cultural Influence” the National Day of Prayer Task Force continually encourages, engages, and equips our...

Lead with Love

“In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.” Exodus 15:13 NIV Happy Valentine’s Day! It almost feels strange to say that to you, knowing that you love deeply and daily. Jesus said that His disciples; His followers and students, would be known by love. This love is a lifestyle that is an overflow from His love in our life; it describes us and is the content of our character.  It is the greatest commandment and our greatest joy to love God and love our “neighbors”....

Will You Join Us this Month as We Pray for the Family?

“And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:4-6 This month, we are focusing our prayers on the FAMILY. As Jesus himself taught us, the nucleus of a new family begins when God joins together a man and woman, and they become ‘one flesh’, husband and... Read more >>
