Observing Our National Day of Prayer

"And this is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him." - 1 John 5:14-15 (NAS)

"... Casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you." - 1 Peter 5:7 (NAS)

"... For he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him." - Hebrews 11:6a (NAS)

 

To Our Prayer Partners,

We are now in the season when our nation comes together for a day to storm heaven for America. We are asking each of you to pray and contact your elected officials on Thursday, May 6th.

A United States Federal Judge has ruled our National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional. There is a Bipartisan group working to overturn this ruling and we thank the Lord for each of these men and women that are taking a strong stand for prayer.

Our elected officials in DC are considering a new Supreme Court Justice.  Please lift this critical appointment up in prayer. Pray for a born again believer and one that takes a strong stand against the abortion issues.

Continue to pray about the health care reform and what is best for our nation and each citizen living in America. Agree with me that the devil cannot rob or steal another thing from the American people. Bind the devil and cast him out and release Godly Holy Spirit favor and blessing on America and each elected official and each citizen in Jesus name.

Classic Easter Feature: How Jesus Might Look Back At The Cross

  How Jesus Might Look Back at the Cross

How Jesus Might Look Back at the Cross

Reverend Austin Miles

The world today is in chaos. There are no restraints in human conduct. Absolute values have long been abolished. Good is considered evil, and evil is considered good. And never has The Cross been more offensive to society than it is today. Sin abounds. Any mention of the name Jesus Christ brings contempt and ridicule. His name is blasphemed and many public displays of Christianity have been declared illegal, while at the same time, pagan religions are readily endorsed and encouraged. Seeing all of this, would Jesus have second thoughts about Calvary?  How would He look back on his sacrifice today? Think about it.  

Prayerfully pondering these questions, this writer speculates what Jesus might say to us today as He looks back to the Cross:

'But beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. Our time reference is much different in Heaven than it is on earth. If you were to be with us in Heaven, you would see an entire life spin out from birth to death in a matter of seconds.

White House won't comment on opinions about the Pope

The White House declined to comment this week on whether or not President Obama agrees with his recent appointee who said the Pope is a "discredited leader". 

The man in question is Harry Knox, Obama's appointee to the White House Advisory Council of Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, a government body that was started by former President Bush.  Knox currently serves as Director of the Faith and Religion program at the Human Rights Campaign, which is a homosexual rights advocacy group.

Knox is also the same guy who stated in a 2004 debate the St. Paul's letter to the Romans was "not true".

The fact that the President nominated Knox in the first place, to say nothing of the fact that he hasn't sacked him after these comments, says something about his level of concern over offending America's Christians.  And it's even more of an insult when you consider that Knox is Obama's appointee to the Faith Based Council in the White House...not some low level functionary in the bureaucracy.

Okay...Now What?

On November 4th, a small majority of voters elected Barak Obama as the 44th President of the United States. Mr. Obama was definitely not my choice, and my reasons were many for opposing him. From his position on abortion, to gay marriage to the possibility of changing the makeup of the Supreme Court, his candidacy troubled me greatly, and now after the election I am even more troubled. So what should my response now be according to scripture?
