Thankfulness, A Critical Aspect of Our Intercession

Thankfulness is such a critical aspect of our intercession and an expression of our reliance on our Almighty God.  A thankful heart releases us from the constant barrage of negative news and the depressing reality that life brings. 



Psalm 100:4 says, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.” This is to be our beginning posture.  We must begin our intercession by thanking God for all that He does for us, and then moving into… Continue

The Wall and “A Matter of Inches”

Many times as I’m traveling on airplanes I marvel at the difference a few inches can make. Relaxing in a comfortable chair in a comfortable climate, I look out the window and realize that the temperature just inches away is below zero, the winds are 400+ MPH, and air is so thin that I would instantly plummet to my death gasping for oxygen. It’s only a matter of a few inches.



The Israelites understood this matter of inches. They went to great lengths to surround Jerusalem and other… Continue

Setting the Standard

“For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ” —1 Corinthians 3:11



John Quincy Adams wrote that standards “may be ranked among the necessaries of life to every individual of human society … the knowledge of them … is among the first elements of education.”



In our newly formed country, various colonies began with different standards of weights and measures. Imagine the economic chaos and strained business relationships in a… Continue

God, Our Refuge and Fortress

“I will say of the LORD, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust. Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.’”  —Psalm 91:2-3



Dictators overthrown. Political turmoil. Earthquakes. Unexpected nuclear disaster. All eyes linger on Japan’s nuclear crisis as both sides of the Pacific… Continue

The Lord’s Promises

“So the LORD gave to Israel all the land of which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they took possession of it and dwelt in it.... Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.” —Joshua 21:43-45



As Joshua was finalizing all of the details of Israel’s conquest of Canaan, we find a remarkable verse: “Not one of all the LORD’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled” (Joshua 21:45). Every promise the Lord… Continue

A Call To Stand Watch

“I have set watchmen on your walls…. They shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent, and give Him no rest … till He makes Jerusalem a praise

in the earth.”
—Isaiah 62:6-7 NKJ



Our founding fathers set out to make this nation the greatest nation. They understood how critical it was for them to seek “Divine Providence” in order for this to occur. At a critical moment in the forming of our Constitution even Ben Franklin,… Continue

A Touch from the LORD

“But I your servant have feared the LORD from my youth. Was it not reported to my lord what I did when Jezebel killed the prophets of the LORD, how I hid one hundred men of the LORD’s prophets.... And now you say, ‘Go, tell your master, “Elijah is here.”’ He will kill me!” Then Elijah said, “As the LORD of hosts lives, before whom I stand, I will surely present myself to him today.” —1 Kings 18:12b-15



It was a moment of great victory. Elijah had just stood on Mount Carmel with… Continue

“Father, the time has come…”

“Is there anybody else praying?” This question came from an incredible prayer warrior who called the office recently, admitting that she felt dejected and alone. Telling her about the thousands who intercede for the nation, our staff had the privilege to spend the next 30 minutes encouraging this dear lady in the Lord. When the phone call ended, she knew the assurance of unity and joy.



This is exactly what Jesus prayed for the disciples in John 17. He realized that God’s protection…

A Season for Real Change

Today’s Americans are not the first to cry out for change, or to welcome

a radical shift in focus. Discontentment is at our core, currently

woven into the very fabric of who we are as a nation, and echoing the

sentiments that first brought pilgrims to these shores. Our

disenchantment with the abuse of power, and our restlessness with

cultural decadence are simply symptoms of national discontent—a desire

for something more; a longing for higher standards and true… Continue

Rebuilding Hope for Today

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

Talking Politics in Church

“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

The Mid-Term Elections Have Already Begun

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.



As… Continue

Supreme Court Justices Pray Together

We should join our Supreme Court Justices in praying to our Supreme God to guide and direct this fall’s Supreme Court session. The tradition of “Red Mass” began in 13th century England, and has been practiced in the U.S. for the last 57 years. Red Mass is a Catholic mass held on the first Sunday in October at a cathedral in Washington. This year, a majority of the Court’s Justices (five in total) were present, along with Vice President Biden. The Archbishop of Washington, who officiated the… Continue

Was the “Great Recession” caused by greed?

Was the “Great Recession” caused by greed? Proponents of this view will tell you that the US economy was brought to its knees by greedy traders on Wall Street who created exotic derivatives. Supposedly, these financial instruments created huge amounts of wealth, which now lines the pockets of those investors. I have even heard it said that this is the first economic downturn caused by a moral issue: greed.



I believe that the true cause of the “Great Recession” goes much deeper than… Continue
