A Time to Remember


In remembrance of those who gave sacrificially and to their families.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us
 in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.

For just as the sufferings of Christ overflow to us, so also through
Christ our comfort overflows.” (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)

Until next time, Favored Promises Are Yours!

The Ways of A Mother



“She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.”
(Proverbs 31:26 NKJV)

There are many stories I could share about my mother and the things that embarrassed me as a child. I'm sure most kids have some of the same tales if the truth be known.

However, my outlook changed as I grew into adulthood.  I came to appreciate the wisdom, kindness and ways of my mother.  In giving her honor, I'd like to direct you to an article I wrote several years ago which reveals why I chose this verse in Proverbs for Mother's Day.

NATIONAL PRAYER

Lord, we exist to give You glory. We exist
because of Your glory, and in Your glory, as
our Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer.

We give you thanks and praise for every breath
and moment You have given to us.

We repent of our sin; for the shameful things
we have done against You and for our
silence when we did not speak up to
proclaim Your Name, profess Your Word,
or protect and practice Your will.

We ask Your forgiveness.
We pray that the knowledge of the glory of
the Lord will spread across our nation and
the entire earth as we seek Your Kingdom
and righteousness; as we walk in
obedience to You, and in humble unity,
love one another.

Jesus, the Bible says that
You are “the knowledge of the glory of the
Lord.” You have taught us to pray,
commanded us to love, and commissioned
us to share Your gospel of grace.

Your glory fills our hearts and families, it
overflows into our neighborhoods,
workplaces, campuses, churches, in our
entertainment and media.

We give thanks for our military and ask that
Your glory would spread to, and through them
as they preserve freedom around the world.

We pray for our government, that all of our
leaders and laws would be filled with Your
glory, that they would magnify Your Holy
Word and honor Your will and ways.

We pray that Your grace and glory would
spread to bring hope to the hopeless, and
love where there is hurt and hate. God, use
us as we pray your promise, that “the earth
will be filled with the knowledge of the
glory of the Lord as the waters
cover the sea.”
In Jesus Name, Amen!

When A Nation Prays


The most powerful weapon we have against the enemy is the gift of prayer.  With that in mind, we are uniting in committing to pray daily for one week covering a specific number of areas asking for God’s mercy and favor.

On May 1st America begins a week of prayer, but all nations and individuals are invited to take part in entering the throne room of God on behalf of their country according to this passage in the Bible.

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves,
and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then
I will hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
(2 Chronicles 7:14 NKJV)

The Bible says that when a nation prays, seeks God's face and repents of sin it will hear from Heaven in answered prayer.  Therefore, each day we will pray over one of the seven assigned topics leading up to the National Day of Prayer on May 7th.  Reminders will be posted daily so you know what area will be covered in prayer for that day.  See here.

“Finally, let’s draw near to the Throne of Favor (grace) with confidence so that we can receive mercy and find grace when we need help.”
(Hebrews 4:16 CEB)

This year the National Day of Prayer board selected "Pray God's Glory Across the Earth" for its theme based on the scripture in Habakkuk 2:14.

"For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea."

National Week of Prayer Schedule

“If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”
 (Mark 3:25)

May 1st – Pray for the family.
Scriptures to pray:

Pray for families to be united within themselves for a divided house will not survive. (Mark 3:35)

Pray for unity and love in individual families that reach out in hospitality toward others. (Romans 12:9-13)

Pray that relationships between parents and children are restored. 
(Malachi 4:5-6)

Pray for a return to family values that serve the nation as a whole.
(Job 22:21-22)

Pray for a return to the biblical mandate to train their children at home in the fear of the Lord and not leave the responsibility to others. (Proverbs 22:6)

Until next time, pray God’s favor on families for healing!
