You Now Need to Move Forward


A reading from Psalm 40, verses six and seven: “Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, my ears you have opened, a burned offering and sin offering you did not require. Then I said, ‘Behold, I come. In the scroll of the book it is written of me.’”

God doesn’t want us just doing perfunctory religious work. He doesn’t want you and me just performing the same old rituals, the same old sacrifices, as wonderful as many of those things might have been in the past. It isn’t God’s will for you and me to live in the past.

If we’ve opened our ears to God, if we have heard Him, it’s time now to start moving forward toward the sound of God’s voice, in this time, and begin to obey it. We are joining together with people from over 200 countries worldwide, at 7:00 PM Eastern time, at itstimetopray.org. We’re seeking the will of God.

It’s time to pray.

We are not Destined to Go Down in Defeat


I want to challenge you today. It’s time to call your sin what it is. Admit today that sin separates you eternally from God and that you can’t go to Heaven based on your goodness. It’s only through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross 2,000 years ago that eternity with God can become ours.

It’s time to admit your condition and believe that God sent His Son to die on a cross to pay the price for your sin. Open your heart and invite Him in to be your Lord and savior. Begin to confess Him with your mouth. Confess Him to your family and in your prayers every day. Confess this new life in Christ and begin to walk with God, and watch what God will do in your life and your family.

Our destiny is not to go down in defeat. We don’t have to give our children and our families over to darkness. We have spiritual authority. It’s time for you and me to rise in the strength of Christ.

It’s time to pray.

The Name of Jesus


Psalm 115, beginning at verse one, says: “Not unto us, oh Lord, not unto us, but to your name, give glory because of your mercy, because of your truth. Why should the Gentiles say, ‘So where’s their God?’”

Today, just as the psalmist was, we need to be concerned about the reverence given to the name of our God, Jesus Christ. His name has been discounted in our society and casually used as a curse word in the media for too long.

The time has come where the Son of God must vindicate His name. I encourage you today to call out to Him to do so. Ask Him to send true spiritual repentance and awakening to this country. If ever there was a time for God to vindicate His name, it is now.

For you and me, it’s time to pray.

Victory Will Follow


There is a spiritual authority when you get up and start walking with God. When you choose to repent of your sin and live life in God’s way, victory will follow. I encourage you to rise and become the person God intended you to be.

The Lord will make it known to your family that He loves them and has the power to change their lives, as well as yours. Get up and start walking with God; this is your responsibility. Let the Holy Spirit change your life. Admit that you are a sinner that needs a Savior. Don’t try to save yourself; it’s not possible. Don’t make excuses any longer for your sin; that only leads to destruction.

Call out to Jesus. He has a plan for your life. Let that plan start today. It’s so important that you and I stand up in the righteousness of God and retake spiritual authority.

It’s time to pray.

If They Could Only Hear


2 Samuel 18:33: “Then the king was deeply moved and went up to the chamber over the gate and wept. And as he went, he said, ‘Thus, oh my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom, if only I had died in your place. Oh, Absalom, my son, my son.’”

I am personally saddened today at the report of another suicide of another high-profile person.

Though outwardly successful, he couldn’t escape the inner pull towards a life of violence and darkness. His final act of violence was against himself. If only he had heard the cry of God for his soul, the one who died so that he might have life. The only way others will ever hear it is from those of us who intimately know Christ. It’s time for you and me to cry out for them.

Remember, my brother, my sister, it’s time to pray.

I Thank God that He Chose His Church


The word of God is indeed a lamp for our feet and a light for our path. The Lord tells us that the entrance of His words gives light. Today, I pray that God will give light to your heart and mind in places where there might be confusion or even indecision about the future.

May He give you and me the confidence we need for the future. May He fill our hearts with gratitude and joy. May we trust God is about to do things that will bring glory to His name. I thank God today that He chose His church to be the vehicle through which He will offer hope, forgiveness, deliverance, and freedom to the masses of people who soon face eternity with God or without Him.

Join us as people from 211 countries at 7:00 PM Eastern time at itstimetopray.org ask God for mercy for many who are soon heading into an eternity.

Remember my brother, my sister, it’s time to pray.
