Our pastors and ministry leaders continue to humble before our Heavenly Father and each other in prayer. The focus of our prayer is upon the compassion of Jesus Christ from where His death on the Cross paid for our eternal salvation. It is His compassion that saves us and He has commanded that we express it to each other.
We believe God our Father is calling us to recognize each other as more than members of differing church institutions. We are… Continue

It was all happened during the summer of 1984 during the Olympics in Los Angeles, California. Prayer meetings for the city and for the evangelization of the lost that would come to LA from all over the world formed several weeks before the Olympics. Intercessary prayer groups were organized between over 1600 churches all over the world who agreed to pray for the city of Los Angeles before, during and after the olympics.
John Dawson documents this in his book, "Taking Our Cities for… Continue

Rebuilding Hope for Today
October 28th, 2010 by Dave Kubal
See if these sound familiar:
* “America will not recover.”
* “By such-and-such date there will be another economic meltdown.”
* “You don’t find the U.S. in End-Times scriptures, so surely we will not survive.”
* “This is the beginning of the end.”
Prophetic half-truths abound these days, and lack a full presentation of the scriptures. God’s immutable Word clearly states that we join… Continue

There are so many people in the workplace that is suffering. Not that we don't know this. When fellow co-workers come to you and release their fears and their fustrations, what do you do with this information. I challenge all of God's children to not only listen but to be so concern that we bow upon our knees before the throne of grace on their behalf. So often we listen but don't realize the power we have in prayer to change or even to help them to find peace in these uncertain… Continue

Many people feel disappointed in prayer when life brings disappointment and difficulty. I have had this question addressed to me time and time again, in one form or another: “If prayer really works, then why did this happen hard, disappointing experience happen to me?”
Let me remind you of the purpose of prayer: Prayer is the conduit through which the
power and provision of God flow into the circumstances of earth. Prayer is NOT a mantra or a set of magic “abra-cadabra” words that… Continue

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strength you with power through the spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith” (Ephesians 3:16).
Inner strength - It’s what we all need! In times of change in my own life, I have found that inner strength from God is the only thing that sustains me. We all need strength for daily life, but where do we get it?
When unexpected things happen in your outer life, what sustains you on the… Continue

As a staff member of the Mission America Coalition, I work closely with John Quam and MAC's Global Connections.

This little town is really just a community that incoperated back in he late 70's to sell alcohol,and thus some could get rich.
Well they found out that it took a lot of money to run a beer store and soon the locals closed up shop only to let the bigger chains come in and the 'money went out of town'.
Now this community is at a crossroads sales taxes are down and the… Continue

Few things work better than a conference to encourage, challenge and equip people to go deeper in their experience with Jesus Christ and prayer.

Our next event will be held October 29-30 in Lititz, PA (Greater Lancaster). It's theme is Awaken: Praying the Fullness of Christ into… Continue

I put this picture of me and my husband on our wedding day as my profile picture because he needs prayer desperately. His name is Eddie and he has walked so far away from the Lord. He has walked out on me and our 14 month old son and is living with another woman. He was once a beautiful man of God. And I know that he can be that beautiful man of God again, but he is SO blinded by satan. Thank you in advance for your prayers. I appreciate them more than you'll ever know. I want my Godly husband… Continue

Earlier I wrote about "taking the offensive" in praying for the Persecuted Church. This idea has been on my mind more and more as the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church approaches. Lately, God seems to be bringing scriptures to me to teach me a broader perspective.…

“You can’t talk politics in the church; everyone knows it’s against the law.”
How often do you suppose this will be said over the next few weeks? It will be said enough that it would be good for Christians to understand what the law is and where it came from.
For the first 178 years of our country’s history, politics were freely discussed in churches. In fact, one of the early leading preachers, Dr. John Witherspoon, signed our Declaration of Independence, helped author… Continue

Experts estimate that at least one third, maybe as high as one half, of voters will vote before the official election date. All states allow for absentee balloting, but 32 states (plus the District of Columbia) allow early, in-person voting. Georgia, Vermont, Maine and South Dakota have allowed in person voting since September 21. Candidates have factored these facts in, realizing that their campaign cannot simply put on a last minute push to convince people which way to vote.

Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.
As I meditate on Your law, as I dwell on the beauty of Your word, as I make these the furniture of Your temple, then You manifest Yourself to me, and live with me. Thank You, Lord.
