Help Us Reach Our Nation for Prayer



We want to openly share our needs and keep you informed about the status of this ministry. Since 2001, this ministry has been reaching millions of Americans with the help of God’s people, who have graciously underwritten the daily expenses of the prayer team. Every gift, no matter the size, is of great help. We invite you to prayerfully consider helping us meet our monthly budgeted need with a gift today.

Thank you for partnering with us in prayer.

QUICK NAVIGATION

  • Saturday, February 24

    U.S. Representative Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin is with a delegation of U.S. legislators concluding a visit to Taiwan today.

    The U.S. embassy in Taiwan stated the delegation would “meet with senior Taiwan leaders and members of civil society to discuss U.S.-Taiwan relations, regional security, trade and investment, and other significant issues of mutual interest.”

    China continues to claim Taiwan as its territory. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning said, “China opposes any form of official interaction between the U.S. and Taiwan authorities and rejects U.S. interference in Taiwan affairs in whatever form or under whatever pretext.”

    As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

    • For Congressman Gallagher and the other U.S. legislators meeting with Taiwan officials.
    • For wisdom for members of the U.S. government as they continue to show support for Taiwan.
    • For the president and his foreign advisors as they determine how to interact with Taiwan and China.

PRESIDENT’S SCHEDULE

Vantage Point Devotional
  • Never Wasted

     Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope.          Romans 5:3-4 

    In God’s economy, nothing is ever wasted. And, according to the apostle Paul, that includes suffering, for it is but another step toward hope. While some suffering means enduring pain, distress, or hardship, facing daily frustrations, hurts, or fears may challenge your faith and hope just as much as undergoing severe persecution could. 

    When you look at whatever is troubling you through the lens of today’s verses, you begin to see how God uses everything. As you trust God through the steps in the process toward hope, He resets your attitude. What is it that He is teaching you today? Are you learning to lean on His everlasting arms as you endure? Are you getting a character makeover in some aspect of your personality? Remember what Peter taught, “After you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you” (1 Peter 5:10). 

    Memorize and learn to rely on the many promises of God to sustain you through times of suffering. As you claim these for yourself, intercede for many in government who, even this present year, have dealt with serious illness, the loss of family members, or other life challenges.  

    Today’s Verse: Romans 5:3-4 

    Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,

    Recommended for further reading: Isaiah 42:1-9 

    Behold my servant, whom I uphold, 
        my chosen, in whom my soul delights; 
    I have put my Spirit upon him; 
        he will bring forth justice to the nations. 
    2 He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice, 
        or make it heard in the street; 
    3 a bruised reed he will not break, 
        and a faintly burning wick he will not quench; 
        he will faithfully bring forth justice. 
    4 He will not grow faint or be discouraged 
        till he has established justice in the earth; 
        and the coastlands wait for his law. 

    5 Thus says God, the Lord, 
        who created the heavens and stretched them out, 
        who spread out the earth and what comes from it, 
    who gives breath to the people on it 
        and spirit to those who walk in it: 
    6 “I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness; 
        I will take you by the hand and keep you; 
    I will give you as a covenant for the people, 
        a light for the nations, 
    7     to open the eyes that are blind, 
    to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, 
        from the prison those who sit in darkness. 
    8 I am the Lord; that is my name; 
        my glory I give to no other, 
        nor my praise to carved idols. 
    9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, 
        and new things I now declare; 
    before they spring forth 
        I tell you of them.”
