Love: It’s All about Relationship

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you" (John 15:9-12). It’s so simple that it’s almost unbelievable. In this climate of disagreement and hatred, Jesus is telling us to LOVE one another? How can this be?... Read more >>

An Encouraging Testimony from an NDP Volunteer

I want to share a beautiful testimony by our Cayuga County (OH) NDP Coordinator, Carla Varga. This communication taught me a great deal. We need to pray fervently for our NDP family and those going through personal battles. It demonstrates a commitment to trust God in all things and all times. We should not give up (Galatians 6:9). We must stand and defend our field like one of David’s mighty men (2 Samuel 23:11-12). I hope her testimony blesses you as well. Read more >>

Where Is Your Focus?

In any given day, there can be moments when all the constant noise in the battle for good and evil can seem overwhelming. In the desire to be informed even for prayer and intercession, I sometimes find my focus didn’t engage properly. I allow my attention to focus on the problem rather than the Lord Himself, the Problem Solver. Read more >>

Where Is the Love?

When I was 18 and in college, I became part of the LOA club. LOA stood for “Love One Another.” We were a diverse group, but the beauty was we were all believers and committed to one another.  As a newbie freshman, I relished the support from the seniors on campus. John 13: 34-35, our Biblical mandate, was put to practice and memory: “A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Read more >>

Where Is America Headed?

Where is America headed? As I look at what is happening in our nation today, how my soul mourns at the absence of honor and respect to our LORD Jesus Christ and His values in our culture. The general public arena has rapidly descended as the disappearance of the fear of the LORD has vaporized from the hearts and minds of many, especially the highly visible and vocal. The lack of civility, loss of decorum, ill regard for authority are signs of a society in peril, one that desires to serve self. Read more >>

A Call to Not Grow Weary!

Have you ever felt you were too tired, too overwhelmed, or maybe too old for the call and purpose God has for your life? A couple of years ago, a former state coordinator for National Day of Prayer emailed me Galatians 6:9 out of the blue: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” She didn’t realize the season of transition that was beginning for NDP. The Holy Spirit guided her to send that encouragement straight from God’s word. I needed it so badly... Read more >>

Event Protest

An Event Protest Can Be God's Opportunity The story I share (sent by an NDP volunteer who, due to the nature of this story, will remain anonymous) is a situation that could occur in any state, any city. It is evidence of the statement that people won’t always remember what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel. Protest Diffused By . . . Approaching the start of our National Day of Prayer 2018 event, a situation arose regarding an older couple who showed up with a few different signs denying God and against our gathering....
