Government Leaders Stand on U.S. House Floor, Remind Americans of Bible’s Critical Importance: 77th National Bible Week

In 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt declared National Bible Week to encourage Americans to read the Bible as a source of hope and encouragement. Since then, every President has declared the week of Thanksgiving as National Bible Week.

This week, Congressman Doug Lamborn and several Congressional Prayer Caucus members hosted a Special Order commemorating National Bible Week, affirming our Judeo-Christian heritage and the Bible’s impact on the American way of life.

Watch Congressman Mike Johnson boldly dispel misconceptions about the use of the Bible in public school classrooms:

 

Above text is an excerpt from Lea Carawan, Executive Director, Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation

ONE: CITYWIDE PRAYER AND WORSHIP

We invite to participate in this upcoming event by attending or praying if unable to attend.

From ONE PDX:

The Kingdom of God has no walls, no borders, no locked doors. Men, women, and children of all ethnicities, backgrounds, and theological belief are united under a common mission and a common King, in Jesus.

And it’s as this flawed—often broken and dysfunctional—but redeemed family that we join together and pray, as Jesus taught, that God’s will would be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

One is a gathering of the Church in the metro area of Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington to pray for our city, our neighborhoods, our communities, and for one another.

See You At The Pole, September 27th

One of our annual rhythms together is upholding and promoting See You at the Pole on the 4th Wednesday of September. While the prayer at the school flag pole is student led, our role is to raise awareness, encourage churches to promote it, and to pray for our students, especially at 7am on Wednesday.

Let it fuel our ongoing prayers for our students and schools, including home schools. For over 25 years, See You at the Pole has been about one simple act—prayer. SYATP is still about students uniting themselves in prayer before God interceding for their generation.

There are two opportunities to unite in prayer with your friends: 

  • DAY: SEE YOU AT THE POLE day is on Wednesday, September 27, at 7:00 a.m. local time. All around the globe, in every time zone, students will be gathering at their flagpoles, praying for their school, friends, families, churches, and communities. SEE YOU AT THE POLE is a day committed to global unity in Christ and prayer for your generation.
  • WEEK: The GLOBAL WEEK OF STUDENT PRAYER (Sunday, September 24 through Saturday, September 30) encourages students to find new and unique ways, places, and times to pray throughout the week. Whether you attend PUBLIC SCHOOL, PRIVATE SCHOOL, or HOME SCHOOL, gather your friends wherever and whenever and pray! The GLOBAL WEEK OF STUDENT PRAYER is dedicated to prayer and launching your on-campus Bible clubs, prayer strategies, and student ministries.

Check out the inspiring story in the Press section of the way that God birthed this movement that now involves millions of students in over 20 countries. http://syatp.com/

Prayer Alert: Rare Solar Eclipse Beckons Masses to Oregon

More than ever, we need to pray!  Arriving here in Oregon, some only to view the Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21st, and some who are vacationing here for the summer, we are hosting a multitude of visitors.  First and foremost, we want to remember to pray – intentionally – for God’s Kingdom to come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

As incoming visitors continue to stream into Oregon from other states and countries, we are praying for:

  1. Safety on the roads; interstate, highways & rural roads
  2. For children and curious people to NOT look at the eclipse without proper eyewear
  3. All to be alert for divine encounters with folks who are hungry for Truth
  4. Oregonians to warmly extend traveling mercies to all those who pass through this land, especially those who may need assistance
  5. The Lord to increase our patience, tolerance & compassion
  6. Increased wisdom and safety for law enforcement, military personnel and governmental authorities as they plan for the influx of people in cities and towns

This is a historical and rare coast-to-coast Total Eclipse.  What is interesting about this eclipse is that it is an almost identical eclipse to the one which will take place again in April 8th, 2024. Although in 2024, instead moving from West to East, it will come from the South and head North.  Researchers have found that as you track the shadows of both eclipses, they create a crossing point which happens to cross at locations in Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky and Illinois areas, respectively.

What does it all mean? The following video link “Is the USA in the Bible? Great American Eclipse Aug 21st, 2017 a Real End Time Sign?” gives some interesting, thought-provoking ideas. But who really knows?  Only God knows. What we do know is that there may be many foreigners in our land over the next 7 years, and we know God wants us to love the foreigner.  “The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.” Lev. 19:34

As many across the nation will welcome the Eclipse phenomenon by hosting and participating in eclipse parties, Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of world renowned evangelist Billy Graham and founder of AnGeL Ministries, took to her website on Monday to comment on the upcoming eclipse in a blog post titled “Is God’s Judgment Coming on America?”  The 69-year-old Lotz, who has previously cited the the Old Testament book of Joel to warn a number of times that God could soon case His judgment on the United States as punishment for the sins of the nations, began the post by explaining that she felt “compelled to issue the warning once again.”

(Photo: Courtesy of Harper Collins/Zondervan, Anne Graham Lotz)

“The warning is triggered by the total solar eclipse of Aug. 21, nicknamed America’s Eclipse. For the first time in almost 100 years, a total solar eclipse will be seen from coast to coast in our nation,” she wrote. “People are preparing to mark this significant event with viewing parties at exclusive prime sites. The celebratory nature regarding the eclipse brings to my mind the Babylonian King Belshazzar who threw a drunken feast the night the Medes and Persians crept under the city gate.”

The story of Belshazzar’s feast was told in the Old Testament book of Daniel. Lotz explained that while Belshazzar and his friends partied and had a good time, “they were oblivious to the impending danger.  Belshazzar wound up dead the next day, and the Babylonian empire was destroyed,” Lotz stated.  She also noted that Jewish rabbis have traditionally seen solar eclipses as “warnings from God to Gentile nations.”

“Therefore, my perspective on the upcoming phenomenon is not celebratory,” Lotz wrote. “While no one can know for sure if judgment is coming on America, it does seem that God is signaling us about something. Time will tell what that something is.”

In her blog post, Lotz also embedded a YouTube video of a nearly hour-long message given by Australian Pastor Steve Cioccolanti of Discover Ministries that was posted late last month. The message is titled “Is the USA in the Bible? Great American Eclipse Aug 21st, 2017 a Real End Time Sign?

“Pastor Steve articulates the warning in a very clear, undeniable, yet non-dogmatic way based on his understanding of biblical truth,” Lotz added.

“Please be assured that balancing God’s warning is His plea for us to return to Him and rend our hearts in sincere, heartfelt repentance,” she continued. “I can almost hear the tears in Joel’s voice as he pleads for us to repent and return to God, because ‘Who knows? He may return and have pity and leave behind a blessing’ (Joel 2:13-14).”

Full Schedule for Pray Oregon Spring Tour 2017

Here we come!  Pray Oregon believes the most profoundly fundamental thing we can do is pray, pray, and pray in the days, weeks, months and years to come.

National Collegiate Day of Prayer Thursday, February 23rd 

George Fox Collegiate Day of Prayer – 2017 from George Fox University Alumni on Vimeo.

As the students go, so goes our nation! If we win the spiritual battles across our nation but neglect our college campuses, all our progress will be undone in a generation. Therefore, students today need our support and earnest prayers. However, college students don’t just need more prayer, they need our UNITED prayer. Without a greater degree of genuine, unified prayer, our hopes and dreams for this generation may never be realized.

According to Matthew 18:18-20, the greater the number united in faith and prayer, the easier the battle for this generation can be won. Just as a team of horses can move a heavy load faster and easier together, so our greatest barriers can be better overcome through united prayer.

On Thursday, Feb. 23 please join the call in the morning and/or evening.
