First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2

Every 4 years, beginning on Inauguration Day, we commit to 100 days of prayer over the president’s administration. These first 100 days are often crucial as new Cabinet-level positions are appointed and confirmed, new policies are set into motion, and work alongside the new Congress begins.

    Day 92 – With All Gratitude to God

    Holy Lord, we come to You with gratitude and praise for the strength and guidance You provide. We pray today for the Secretary and employees of the Department of Commerce as they promote national economic growth and job creation in the United States. We ask that You direct their efforts to support American business and trade through the tools, services, and programs their various agencies provide.

  • Thursday, April 22

    The two-day virtual Leader Summit on Climate begins this morning. President Joe Biden will participate in today’s two sessions along with 40 other world leaders. The president is expected to commit to the goal of reducing U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by the year 2030. He hopes that this encourages other countries to commit to ambitious reduction targets.

    This afternoon Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry and National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy will join White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki for the daily press briefing.

    Advisor McCarthy has stated, “The U.S. is looking at this as a tremendous opportunity to shift to clean energy. And we would hope that China and our other countries would look at it similarly.”

    As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

    • For God’s purpose to be accomplished as the world leaders discuss climate during the virtual summit.
    • For discernment for the president and his administration as climate and energy policies are implemented.
    • For Envoy Kerry and Advisor McCarthy to gather accurate and beneficial information as they offer their recommendations regarding climate.

A Look at Thanksgiving in History

New York
October 3, 1789

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

    Vantage Point Devotional
    • Sin and Grace

      The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord. – Proverbs 21:31

      You cannot read the Bible without encountering accounts of nations and people engaged in mortal conflict. The violence in God’s word may cause some to dismiss it entirely. But in adopting that approach, you would miss a critical piece of God’s truth about Himself and the world.

      Many times in the Old Testament, the reigning culture is described as when “men did what was right in their own eyes.” That cultural construct did not lead to a world of peace; instead, a self-righteous society resulted in rampant evil, bringing ruin to everything good on Earth. Yet, God took the very thing destroying mankind and used it to rescue them.

      Death was man’s doing, it was the nature of sin itself, violent, human destruction, but God used it to accomplish eternal grace for mankind. As Christ died at the brutal hands of a sinful world, God’s perfect justice against sin and mercy towards mankind poured outwards and covered even the darkest soul. Salvation was accomplished when God defeated evil and violence! This salvation is something no person, regardless of intentions or preparedness could do on their own merit. Violence in the Bible showcases how much forgiveness and mercy there is in God’s salvation of us.

      Today, in a world where it is in vogue to avoid anything that offends your senses, do not miss God’s WHOLE story. As you read both the Old and New Testament, look for the entire picture of how great the rescue of mankind through the salvation of Jesus Christ really is. Pray for those leading America to accept God’s full measure of grace through Christ, leading the nation to a future of blessing. 

      Today’s Verse: Proverbs 21:31

      The horse is made ready for the day of battle,
          but the victory belongs to the Lord.

      Recommended for further reading: Titus 3:3-7

      For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
