In my newest book, RENEWAL – 4 Ways to Change Your Life and Our Nation, I share a powerful parable from Scripture that illustrates the vital need for godly leadership.
Will you pause right now, and the rest of this week, to join me in a critical request with national concern?
Millions of people in the Carolinas and Virginia are either on the move or hunkering down as Hurricane Florence heads for the region, where it is expected to make landfall by Friday with winds of 140 miles per hour.
NEXT week, we’ll celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer part of the British Empire, but that they would be a new nation, the United States of America. We declared our INDEPENDENCE.
This weekend, dads everywhere will be celebrated for the important, powerful role they play in the lives of their families. Of all my thousands of positive memories of my late father, one that stands out is his consistently positive affirmation of me as his son. I have no idea where I would be, or what I would be, without his loving support.
This week we celebrate what He is doing in bringing renewal to our nation and across the world! On Monday, the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of baker Jack Phillips, who refused to violate his deeply held religious belief, in what was a momentous victory for religious liberty here in our country! We are grateful that the courts ruled to protect religious freedom! God is answering our prayers!
The International Christian Concern (ICC) hosted their annual “Policy Day” event Tuesday, June 5, in the United States Capitol Building. The focus of this year’s event was on human rights and religious liberty in the country of Nigeria, a nation where Christians face some of the most violent persecution in the world.
What a historic week this has been!! Thank you for uniting in prayer to cover my brief trip to Israel!
I can’t begin to tell you how significant this occasion was to our Republic, the State of Israel, and for the Center For National Renewal. As an honored guest, I accompanied the US delegation representing the faith community to share in the dedication ceremony for our new US Embassy in Jerusalem. I was able to connect with leaders and influencers from every sphere of culture– sharing the heart of our mission and representing you as a part of our NatRenewPrayer team! PLUS, Pastor Deamon Scapin, our CFNR Director, also represented YOU at The White House for a special live viewing of the dedication. YOU were represented in BOTH DC’s – Washington AND David’s Capital!
This is an exciting week – full of God appointments! Please pray for me, as I travel to Israel to attend the dedication of the new US Embassy in Jerusalem, as an invited guest. I’ll be representing YOU and the Center for National Renewal! The spiritual and geo-political significance of this event cannot be understated!
Tomorrow is the National Day of Prayer. God’s people all around the nation will unite in prayer for renewal and revival in our land. Last week, I shared specific points of prayer for unity in our nation. Today, I’d like to share one final prayer target AND I’m including the National Prayer, which will be prayed by millions tomorrow.
This week – and next – I’m calling us to band together in concerted prayer for God to bring an outpouring of UNITY in our nation. There are many issues of concern, problems to confront, and decisions ahead for our nation, so we may experience a genuine and lasting renewal. However, NOTHING will more significantly impact our nation for good, than an outpouring of a spirit of UNITY. In fact, it will be the theme of this year’s National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 3, 2018.
