In Memory of Billy Graham

Today, the body of ‘America’s Pastor,’ the Rev. Dr. Billy Graham lies in honor in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol – just down the street from my office at the Center for National Renewal.  Dr. Graham’s earthly body was laid on a mattress pad in a simple casket made of pine plywood by prison workers in Louisiana State Penitentiary.  What a powerful picture of the end of every person – small or great – and the reminder of the simple gospel he preached.

January Partner Update

I pray all is well and your new year is off to a wonderful start!  I want to take a minute to THANK YOU for your generous investment in the mission of the Center for National Renewal.  You are truly partners with us in renewing the nation!

Together, we are making inroads and seeing God open doors for us to go further faster.  Your generous giving has made that possible!  Each month, I’ll be sending you a brief email update, so we can celebrate together what God is doing because of our partnership!

Here are just a few highlights of what happened in January because of your faithful support!

Pray for Parkland

Today, let’s focus our national prayers on the devastated community of Parkland, Florida in wake of yesterday’s unspeakable tragedy.  We are a national family – when one suffers, we all suffer.  Our hearts are broken for the 17 adults & students who were killed, along with their family, friends, and the entire community.  Let’s unite in prayer for an overwhelming presence of God to permeate the entire region!

Reconciliation

I love knowing that each week there is an army of thousands joining me in prayer for our nation!!! It’s making a difference and God is at work behind the scenes!  He’s orchestrating a wonderful ‘turn around’ and WE’RE in the middle of the action!
 
This week, I’m praying for two critical items and I’d be honored to have you unite your faith with mine.

State of the Union

This week, let’s unite in prayer and believe God to release DIVINE SOLUTIONS to renew our nation!
 
James 1:5 tells us that ‘if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all…and it will be given to him.’  Our legislators, judges, national leaders, and influencers need DIVINE WISDOM for DIVINE SOLUTIONS that will save our country and renew our land. 

Early January Update

2018 is already off to a busy start!  God is opening doors and critical decisions are being made EVERY DAY here in Washington that effect the future of our country.  THANK YOU for uniting with us in prayer and faith for God to bring renewal in our nation!

Today, I’d like you to join me in prayer for three significant national concerns.

Welcome to 2018!

2017 is over and God has given us a brand new year!
 
Kathy and I wanted to share our heartfelt thanks for praying with us to see our nation renewed. You have prayed with us for divine intervention, renewal, and healing – God is answering our collective prayer! Today, I have a special prayer – this prayer is for you! We want you to know how amazing we believe that you are. Bless you!

DEPARTMENT of JUSTICE, DEFENSE, and HOMELAND SECURITY

DEPARTMENT of JUSTICE, DEFENSE, and HOMELAND SECURITY

Lord Jesus, we pray for the Departments of Justice, Defense, and Homeland Security and the men and women through whom justice and protection is administered.  We ask You, oh Lord, to uphold justice and mercy in our land and to keep us safe – that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  We declare with our mouths that Your people dwell safely in this land, and we prosper abundantly.

EXECUTIVE BRANCH

EXECUTIVE BRANCH

Father, we come to You in prayer for the Executive Branch of our national government.  First of all, we make supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving for kings and all who are in high positions.  We pray for our President Donald J Trump, Vice-President Pence, and each of the leaders overseeing the 15 departments in The Cabinet.  We hold up in prayer the men and women who are in positions of authority.

Patriots or Prayer Warriors?

Patriots or Prayer Warriors?

As Americans, we celebrate the independence of our great nation this week.  Picnics, BBQ, and plenty of red, white and blue help us remember July 4, 1776 – and especially fireworks!  There is nothing more moving and exciting than a gigantic fiery display with explosions of color and sonic booms high overhead in the warm night sky.

Executive Order: Protecting the Nation

Executive Order: Protecting the Nation

In light of our current national climate and the recent Executive Order, PROTECTING THE NATION FROM FOREIGN TERRORIST ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES, we stand as followers of Jesus Christ who are blessed to be citizens of this great country.  Our biblical mandate is to show hospitality, to welcome the sojourner, and to care for the marginalized, persecuted, and disadvantaged.
