Call to the Nation – it's time to pray. http://itstimetopray.org Thu, 30 Mar 2017 04:01:00 +0000 en-US hourly 1 We Need His Glory Again http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/we-need-his-glory-again-2/ http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/we-need-his-glory-again-2/#respond Thu, 30 Mar 2017 04:01:00 +0000 http://itstimetopray.org/?post_type=podcast&p=191783 Listen with me to the words of 2 Chronicles 5:13-14, “Indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound, to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying, ‘For He is good, for His mercy endures forever,’ that the house of the Lord was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.

Now the people most likely knew their own history of failure and their present weakness. But at a certain time, they came aware of the incredible goodness and mercy of God. Then, they with one voice began to proclaim it, and when they did so the presence of God came with such glory that we’re still talking about it today. We need the glory of God in our churches again.

It’s time to pray.

A Roaring Lion http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/a-roaring-lion-3/ http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/a-roaring-lion-3/#respond Wed, 29 Mar 2017 04:01:00 +0000 http://itstimetopray.org/?post_type=podcast&p=191786 The book of 1 Peter 5:8, says these words, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

What more evidence do we need than our news today, that something evil is stalking our world to devour all that is good. People are becoming afraid as the lion roams our streets, devours our homes, threatens our civility and order, where it always prevailed among us.

The question you ask is, what can I do? I’m not a person of power or influence. First of all, recognize that isn’t true. You have influence with God, who can influence everything. That’s why Peter in the next verse says, “Resist him, steadfast in the faith.” You have the power to resist this evil.

It’s time to pray.

God Heals Relationships http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/god-heals-relationships-2/ http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/god-heals-relationships-2/#respond Tue, 28 Mar 2017 04:01:00 +0000 http://itstimetopray.org/?post_type=podcast&p=191780 At our Worldwide Prayer Meeting here in New York City, every Tuesday night at 7:00PM Eastern Time, God is doing some marvelous things for people. He’s answering prayer in a profound way. Relationships are being healed. Here are some I’ll like to share with you. People have returned praise reports:

“My daughter and I are having a better relationship with each other. And she’s not as angry with me. Thank you God, in Jesus’ name.”

Here’s another one from New Jersey, “I thank God that my daughter returned home and is safe. Please continue to pray for her to stay free from addiction. Praise God! He is faithful. She also needs salvation.”

From Brooklyn, New York, “I asked for salvation for my daughter and granddaughters. I see a great change in their attitude. I believe that the Lord is working all things together for good for my family.”

Praise God, and thank you!

It is time to pray.

Do You Know These Things http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/do-you-know-these-things-2/ http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/do-you-know-these-things-2/#comments Mon, 27 Mar 2017 04:01:00 +0000 http://itstimetopray.org/?post_type=podcast&p=191777 The book of John 3:8-10, Jesus said these words, “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said to Him, ‘How can these things be?’ Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?’

Now many, many, in this generation have settled for mere religious practice, when our heritage has always been to be born of the Spirit. You and I are called of God to be a supernatural people–a people who are enable by God to do what only could be done through Him.

The book of Acts chapter 2, people came out from a place of prayer and they were not coming out with a new form of religion, but they were empowered by God to change their society.

It’s time to pray.

Greetings from Caesar’s Home http://itstimetopray.org/call-to-the-nation/greetings-from-caesars-home/ http://itstimetopray.org/call-to-the-nation/greetings-from-caesars-home/#respond Sun, 26 Mar 2017 04:01:59 +0000 http://itstimetopray.org/?post_type=call&p=191739 There are no coincidences with God, His hand is in every situation. Through the life of Paul, we learn that we have been captivated for a divine purpose and if Christ is in us, then God’s purpose for us cannot be stopped by hard circumstances. When we stop asking God to get us out of where we are and allow Him to show us the reason why He’s positioned us in difficult situations, our lives become a lighthouse that guides others out of danger and darkness. Don’t think what you’re going through is strange, like Paul, use your place of captivation as an opportunity to spread the Gospel and free those around you from their chains.

When Even The Young Faint http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/when-even-the-young-faint-3/ http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/when-even-the-young-faint-3/#respond Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:01:00 +0000 http://itstimetopray.org/?post_type=podcast&p=191779 The book of Lamentations 2:19 says these words, “Arise, cry out in the night, at the beginning of the watches; pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord. Lift your hands toward Him for the life of your young children, who faint from hunger at the head of every street.

New York City’s statisticians tell us that one in four of our teenagers in this city, have either thought about or attempted suicide. Yet still as a society, we persist in taking away from our children their ultimate hope: to have a relationship with God, the hope of eternity with Him and a promise of full and meaningful life here on this earth.

For what conceivable reason would we as a society do this? I could only come up with one answer: America wants to sin without conscience.

It’s time for you and I to pray.

More On The 1905 Awakening http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/more-on-the-1905-awakening-2/ http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/more-on-the-1905-awakening-2/#comments Thu, 23 Mar 2017 04:01:00 +0000 http://itstimetopray.org/?post_type=podcast&p=191771 The historical account of the great spiritual awakening in America in the year 1905, says the following:

“Church membership in the seven major denominations jumped by 870,389 people in the year 1906 alone. In five years, it had increased by two million and was still growing. The largest U.S denomination in those days, the Methodists, in review, declared that the revival had sparked the public conscience, overthrown corrupt officials, crossed party lines, and elected governors, senators, assemblymen, mayors, and district attorneys of recognized honesty. The people of Philadelphia threw the rascals out and put in a dedicated mayor. A wave of morality swept over the country, producing a revival of righteousness.”

Oh God, Oh God, it is time, to pray again.

1905 Awakening http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/1905-awakening-2/ http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/1905-awakening-2/#respond Wed, 22 Mar 2017 04:01:00 +0000 http://itstimetopray.org/?post_type=podcast&p=191769 I’m reading today from a historical account of the great spiritual awakening in America 1905.

“In the Middle West, churches were suddenly inundated by great crowds of seekers. Every store and factory closed in Burlington, Iowa, to let employees go services of dedication and intercession. The Mayor of Denver declared a day of prayer. By 10AM churches were filled, by 11:30AM almost all the stores were closed–every school was closed. The Colorado legislature closed. 12,000 people attended prayer meetings in downtown theaters and halls. The impact was felt for years.”

Oh, what a tragedy: how far we have fallen from those days. But if you and I will begin to pray again, there is no valley so deep that the hand of God cannot reach down and lift us up again and bring us back into right thinking, and give us an awakening in America again.

It’s time to pray.

Now here is a wonderful one from Ecuador, “Months ago, Carol asked for prayer. Her son-in-law, Steve, divorced her daughter and fled for a year. Today, Steve wants to reconcile and he repents for the pain he has caused.”

Oh, God is answering so many prayers in such a profound way.

My friend, listen to me: it’s time to pray.

Revival http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/revival-2/ http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/revival-2/#respond Mon, 20 Mar 2017 04:01:00 +0000 http://itstimetopray.org/?post_type=podcast&p=191766 Psalm 85:6-7, the psalmist cries out, “Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You? Show us Your mercy Lord, and grant us Your salvation.

I want to read to you from a historical account of the Great Awakening that happened in America in the year 1905.

“It first burst out in East, like a sweeping fire through the Eastern states. The Methodists in Philadelphia soon had over six thousand new converts in membership. The ministers of Atlantic City claimed there were only fifty adults left unconverted in a population of sixty thousand. Churches in New York City took in hundreds on a single Sunday. It rolled like a tidal wave through the South, packing churches for prayer and confession, and adding thousands of people, daily, to the membership rolls.”

Oh my beloved friend, it’s time to pray.
