In times of difficulty and crisis, our faith has the opportunity to shine brighter than ever. 2 Chronicles 7:14 calls us to humble ourselves and seek God’s face for healing and forgiveness. The responsibility for the healing of the land is on believers! During our daily prayer calls, we’ll be adopting a posture of prayer, standing in the gap for our nation, and seeking the Lord for healing. Join us at 7 AM CST for our daily prayer calls!

Peace is my New Normal
Even with numbers rising drastically with people testing positive from covid-19, we have to focus on John 14:27 where Jesus tells His disciples He is leaving but He is leaving them His peace. Let us grab hold to His peace instead of fear and anxiety with everything going on in this world.
My Soul Sings
Today's topic focuses on having the joy of the Lord from deep within. Though we go through trials and tribulations, the joy of the Lord is our strength. When we seek the Father's face, we can learn how to cope with life, and our soul will sing unto God always. Psalms 108:1 "My heart, O God, is steadfast; I will sing and make music with all my soul".
Today's topic is based from 2 Cor. 10:3-4 "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds." As believers, God has given us the tools to be victorious through Him. Let's use them.
The Value of Serving Others
Philippians 2:3-4 says, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” Let us take away from today’s call that each one of us has value, and we have the opportunity to serve others.
Learning from Our Past
Often, we find ourselves reliving pains from our past when God is calling for us to learn from them. Let us live in Jesus, who frees us from past mistakes and failures. 1 Corinthians 10:6 says, “Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did.”
Keep Calm: God is Still There
In the times in which we're living, it can sometimes feel like God is not there. However, keep calm—God has promised us that He will never leave us nor forsake us. What you magnify gets big; but when you magnify God, you remember that He is still there (Matthew 14:22-27).
The “I” Foundation
Who are you and what defines you? What is your identity? Today's topic awakens our spirit man to respond to who God calls us to be through Christ Jesus, our firm foundation. 1 Peter 2:9 says, “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.“
Jesus Knows All!
We know that God is omniscient—meaning He knows all—but we often overlook the fact that Jesus’s earthly experience provided a first-hand experience of what it means to be human. Hebrews 12:14-16 tells that Jesus, our High Priest, was tested as we are, yet He did not sin. Remember that Jesus knows all.
Repentance from Unholy Ambitions
There are many aspirations that are not according to the will of God. In this world, some of the things that look good and sound good do not benefit God’s Kingdom. Mark 4:19 says, “And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.”
The Power of Words
Today's topic focuses on the power of the tongue. Whether we are led to speak or to be silent, we remember that it is our duty and privilege to represent Christ’s cause. It’s crucial to seek the Lord and study what His Word says so that we’re prepared to walk boldly in knowledge and truth. Matthew 12:36-37 says, “I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Repentance from Ungodly Soul Ties
If you have made any spoken commitments, vows, or even if you’ve simply said, "I will love you forever," these promises have ample power in the spiritual realm to bind your soul to another person (to form a soul tie). The tongue is quite capable of binding the soul and can be a great means to create soul ties. Proverbs 6:2 says, "Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth."
Repent from Speaking Death
Proverbs 18:21 says, “From the fruit of his mouth a man’s belly is filled; with the harvest from his lips he is satisfied. Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Today, let’s consider the places in our lives where we have spoken death over our lives, families, finances, and dreams, and repent.
Repentance from Rebellion
How have you rebelled against God? Nehemiah 9:26-27 says, “Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against you, and cast your law behind their backs, and slew your prophets which testified against them to turn them to you, and they worked great provocations.” Today, we repent for our rebellion.
Repentance from Dishonor
Honor releases the power of God while dishonor greatly hinders its expression. Jesus taught, “‘A prophet is not without honor except in his home town, and in his own household.’ And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief” (Matthew 13:57-58). The people of Jesus’ hometown did not honor Him, and Jesus called their lack of honor “unbelief.”
Repentance from Sexual Immorality
1 Corinthians 6:18 says, “Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.” Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. He dwells in us. Let us repent for how we have misused our bodies for the purpose of sin rather than for the purpose of God.
Repentance from Ungodly Covenants
Matthew 18:18 says, “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will loosed in Heaven.” Spoken, ungodly covenants need to be renounced in order to free ourselves. Verbally renouncing something carries a lot of weight in the spiritual realm. Just as vows can bind us, renouncing them can release us. Today, we renounce and loose ourselves from all ungodly covenants and repent.
Follow Godly Rules
Sometimes, rules seem unfair, don’t make sense, or seem like they should not apply to us. But all rules are put into place for a reason, and we are called to obey them. Life is no game; as believers, we have rules in Jesus’s commandments to follow in order to receive our crown (2 Timothy 2:5).
There may be times when we feel disconnected from our faith—and certainly, during this pandemic, our faith family. We might feel like lost sheep. We can be confident that, even in our seasons of bewilderment or confusion, God never loses His direction. He will always be with His lost sheep (Jeremiah 50:6,19; Luke 15:3-7).
Live It Out: God’s Reconciling Love
What Jesus accomplished on the cross reconciled us to the Father through His love for us. We remember that we embody the love of God. “Nor height, nor depth, nor any creature, should be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39).
To Serve or Not to Serve
When God calls us to go and serve, do we make the decision to serve? Today, we’ll look at Amos’ call: “Then answered Amos, And said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet’s son; but I was an Herdman and an gatherer of sycamore fruit: and the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the Lord said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel” (Amos 7:14-15).
The Power of Light
TWe have a responsibility to be light to this world. Without light, there is darkness. Without light, there is nothing to be seen and nothing to be hoped for. “In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not” (John 1:4-5, KJV).
