Hilton Griswold reads the prayer Pastor Joe Wright prayed in the Kansas State legislature on January 23, 1996.

“>

This interesting prayer was given in Kansas, USA, at the opening session of their Senate. It seems prayer still upsets some people.

When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:

“Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says: “Woe to those who call evil good”, but that is exactly what we have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism.

We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism.

We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle.

We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem.

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have embezzled public funds and called it essential expenses.

We have insitutionalised bribery and called it sweets of office.

We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh GOD, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!”

The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest.

In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively.

The church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer from India, Africa and Korea.

With the LORD’S help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and WHOLEHEARTEDLY become our desire so that we again can be called “ONE NATION UNDER GOD.”

Event: Fresh Fire 2017 – 3Days Ministers Prayer Retreat | 9th – 12th Jan; 2017


The Joint Christian Ministers Crusade aka JCMC or JCMF, annual ministers prayer camping retreat.


JCMC is the body of ministers of all churches with the vision of jointly taking the land for Christ.

JCMC has a very significant role to play in the body of Christ in these last days.  Its main vision is to bring all ministers of God from various churches, ministries and denominations together in unity, to take the land for Jesus Christ.

The Fresh Fire prayer camping retreat is an annual event and this is the seventh edition. The retreat focuses on igniting the hearts of ministers with fresh fire at beginning of the year.
God is interested in us having  proper foundation as new things take off.

The ministers of God are always the target of the devil. The Bible says strike the shepherd and the sheep will scatter. This event strengthens the ministers to do better in life and ministries than the previous year.
Annually, we have almost a thousand ministers in attendance, both from within and outside Nigeria.

At the upcoming event, January 9 to 12 2017 (Monday to Thursday), we are expecting almost 2000 ministers and it is free feeding and accommodation for all participants
The guest ministers are experienced and seasoned Servants of God who will highly impact us with the grace God has placed upon their lives.
This conference is open to Bishops, Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and heads of various church departments.
Servants of God, don’t forget that God depends on the church to get the world out of darkness into the marvelous light that is in Christ Jesus.  Note that the devil has sneaked into the church and right from the pulpit many are asleep spiritually and physically.

The sign of the end-time, ‘lover of self more than the lover of God’ is already in operation in the life of ministers of God and the congregation. No wonder we are not seeing the power of God as in the days of old.
Do not miss this great occasion with your associates, it is a time of refreshment, your life and ministries shall take a new turn in the manifestation of God’s power, in Jesus’ name.

Date: 9th – 12th Jan; 2017

Mark Hall, Casting Crowns’ Singer Announces He Has Kidney Cancer, Asks for Prayer

Mark Hall, the leader singer of Christian worship band Casting Crowns, announced on the band’s Facebook page that he has what doctors believe to be kidney cancer. 
 
“Hey Casting Crowns Family,” Hall wrote. “I would appreciate your prayers.
 
“Doctors found a solid mass in my right kidney about a week ago. They are 90% sure it’s cancer and they are going to remove the entire kidney next Wednesday, March 11th. They believe the cancer is contained in the kidney, which is also a great hope. They will know more once it is out and Pathology can see it.
 
“I’ll be in recovery for a month or a little longer because of the surgery. Please pray for healing and for God’s peace for my family.
 
He signed the post, “Praising Him in This Storm, Mark Hall.” 
 
Immediately after the singer wrote the post, the hashtag #prayingforMark began trending on social media. 

Billy Graham’s Prayer for the New Year

Our Father and our God, as we stand at the beginning of this new year we confess our need of Your presence and Your guidance as we face the future.

We each have our hopes and expectations for the year that is ahead of us—but You alone know what it holds for us, and only You can give us the strength and the wisdom we will need to meet its challenges. So help us to humbly put our hands into Your hand, and to trust You and to seek Your will for our lives during this coming year.

In the midst of life’s uncertainties in the days ahead, assure us of the certainty of Your unchanging love.

In the midst of life’s inevitable disappointments and heartaches, help us to turn to You for the stability and comfort we will need.

In the midst of life’s temptations and the pull of our stubborn self-will, help us not to lose our way but to have the courage to do what is right in Your sight, regardless of the cost.

And in the midst of our daily preoccupations and pursuits, open our eyes to the sorrows and injustices of our hurting world, and help us to respond with compassion and sacrifice to those who are friendless and in need. May our constant prayer be that of the ancient Psalmist: “Teach me, O Lord, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end” (Psalm 119:33).

We pray for our nation and its leaders during these difficult times, and for all those who are seeking to bring peace and justice to our dangerous and troubled world. We pray especially for Your protection on all those who serve in our armed forces, and we thank You for their commitment to defend our freedoms, even at the cost of their own lives. Be with their families also, and assure them of Your love and concern for them.

Bring our divided nation together, and give us a greater vision of what You would have us to be. Your Word reminds us that “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12).

As we look back over this past year we thank You for Your goodness to us—far beyond what we have deserved. May we never presume on Your past goodness or forget all Your mercies to us, but may they instead lead us to repentance, and to a new commitment to make You the foundation and center of our lives this year.

And so, our Father, we thank You for the promise and hope of this new year, and we look forward to it with expectancy and faith. This I ask in the name of our Lord and Savior, who by His death and resurrection has given us hope both for this world and the world to come.

Amen.
