One Voice, United in Prayer

John BornscheinIn 1620, William Bradford and the brave men and women of faith aboard the Mayflower declared America to be “for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.” Later it was President George Washington who said that the twin pillars essential for supporting a successful society are morality and religion. John Adams, our second president specified that the “The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were … the general principles of Christianity.”So, where are we today? Are we still a Christian nation? For those of us who align with this faith, the easy answer... Read more >>

Fellowship with God

Shirley DobsonWarm greetings from the National Day of Prayer Task Force (NDP)!  As we draw closer to this year’s National Day of Prayer on May 1, I want to take this opportunity to share the importance of your ongoing partnership in our efforts.  Since 1952, when Congress established an annual day of prayer, millions of Americans have gathered each year in churches, synagogues, schools, parks, and other venues to intercede for our nation.  Today we face extremely difficult times and daunting challenges, from economic turmoil to the threat of terrorism to moral confusion and decline.  It behooves us, then, to...

Praying for Revival

Commissioner Tim EcholsSome years ago, Ken Wales produced a movie called “Amazing Grace” about the remarkable life of William Wilberforce.  Wilberforce, a Member of Parliament who took office after the Revolutionary War, not only changed Britain, but impacted the world.  For those of praying for revival in America, there is much to learn from his life.Most historians remember Wilberforce as the man who, through passionate conviction and dogged determination, almost single-handedly achieved the abolition of the slave trade in the British Empire in 1807.  In fact, after his death in 1833, black leaders in New York City heralded him as...

Are You One?

Lisa CrumpValentine's Day has come and gone and I am sure you have noticed that it is set in place by our present culture to be all about ‘love’.  Certainly, we pray for marriages and our other human relationships to be well cared for.  Yet, there is a greater love story that transcends faces, places and wallets.  Where can we go to learn more?Have you ever felt there was a Bible scripture that you just didn’t understand or left you in a place of confusion?  Maybe it even seemed to contradict other verses or concepts clearly stated in other passages.Some...

One Voice

Kathy BranzellPsalm 34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together. NASBOne of the many things I love about prayer is that it has a special way of uniting the followers of Christ. Prayer draws us together even when our traditions, denominations, preferences, or personalities might not have much in common. Prayer is a common thread that the Spirit sews throughout the body of Christ to repair the torn and tattered places that cause separation among us. One of my most favorite type of prayer gatherings are “Concerts of Prayer.” Concerts of Prayer, (COP) can... Read more >>

The Power of Family Prayer

“Dad, I’m so hungry. May I have some bread?”Does that sound like a prayer to you? Or is it more like a child asking his father for what he needs? God invites us to come to Him as a little child. It’s as simple as saying, “Daddy, I need you.”God holds the key to all your longings: provision, protection, belonging, compassion, forgiveness. And He wants to provide them for you . . . just ask Him. He strengthens and encourages you and your family through your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Prayer—corporate family prayer—is the power source from which... Read more >>

Taking a Stand

John BornscheinAs we prepare for the 63rd annual National Day of Prayer on May 1, 2014, let us take a moment to pause and reflect on what God has done and continues to do across our nation. The 62nd annual National Day of Prayer was perhaps the greatest mobilization of the church in America since the Jesus Movement or the Fulton Street Revival of 1857. In Washington D.C., the National Observance launched a wave of prayer that that spread to over 42,000 unique gatherings from coast to coast and a message of revival and personal commitment was delivered passionately. Jeremiah... Read more >>
