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 >>

First of All

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.  This is good, and pleases God our Savior…” I Timothy 2: 1-3 NIV With 2020 well under way, I am now in my 17th year with the National Day of Prayer Task Force. In 2006, I was in Kansas City for a prayer gathering when a pastor I had never met, came up to me and shared the statement, ‘national life of prayer’ over me, and... Read more >>

Happy New Year!

"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me... Read more >>

Immanuel John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. Merry Christmas! We have prayed throughout this month that you have been able to pause and experience some of the wonder of our Savior’s earthly arrival and eternal presence. Immanuel, God dwelling among us and forever with us. As I sat and watched the children’s Christmas program at our church, it filled my heart with wonder to see these children too excited to stand still on the stage, and... Read more >>
