Lifting the Banner of His Name

August 29, 2022

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple… Isaiah 6:1

On the hot, humid afternoon of August 20th, several hundred people gathered for Pray North Carolina, which was held on the steps of our state capitol in Raleigh. The atmosphere was chaotic as a Caribbean festival, led by hundreds of scantily clad women in brightly colored feathers, marched through the city streets to the amplified drumbeat of their “music.” The pulsating sound that could be felt as well as heard was like that of war drums, reminding those who had come to pray that we were indeed engaged in an invisible spiritual battle for our city, state, and nation.

Following statewide leaders, who led the gathering in powerful prayers that focused on strategic areas, I was given the privilege of closing out the prayer rally with a brief message as well as leading in prayer. What could I say in such an atmosphere, when all the pertinent issues had been covered? I invite you to watch the following video of my participation.

Use it, please, to pray with me:

God Loves the World

July 25, 2022

For God so loved the world… John 3:16

Out of respect for those of you who have taken the time to comment about a statement I made eleven years ago regarding the World Economic Forum, I thought it would be beneficial to restate God’s call on my life. In 1988 He made it clear that I was to be His messenger, going wherever He sent me and giving out His Word to whomever He put before me.[1] Therefore, when I received the invitation in 2005 from Professor Klaus Schwab to attend the World Economic Forum as a world religious leader, I did what I do with all the invitations that come my way: I prayed.

Turn Around

June 28, 2022

This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live…  Deuteronomy 30:19

Recently I drove my youngest granddaughter to the DMV where she was to take a test for a driver’s license permit. Since the DMV was located in a small town that was unfamiliar to me, I put the address in my GPS. About three quarters of the way there, I took a wrong turn. As soon as I did, the voice from my GPS told me to make a U-turn as soon as possible, which I did. I was able to get back on the right road and arrive at the right place at the right time. All because I was willing to turn around when I took a wrong turn.

National Day of Prayer | May 5, 2022

May 5, 2022

While not perfect, our system of justice in the United States is the gold standard for the world. 

Regardless of your views on Roe vs. Wade, we should all be alarmed at the attack on the Supreme Court and the nine justices who preside there. On this evening of the National Day of Prayer, it’s time to petition the High Court of Heaven:

Praying for the Women in Ukraine

March 20, 2022 | Museum of the Bible | TRANSFORM Series

February 25, 2022

The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight… Esther 2:17

As a result of the king’s love and favor, Esther was made queen. From her unique position God used her to intercede for His people, and they were saved from slaughter. 

This is a rallying cry for “Esthers” around the globe to intercede for God’s people who are under attack in Ukraine. To be honest, because of the almost non-stop attacks and suffering in my own family, I have sought to shield my heart from what is taking place in Eastern Europe. But no more. My heart is shattered. I well remember holding Just Give Me Jesus in Kyiv in 2005, which was attended by thousands of women. I can still hear their voices lifted in worship. I can still see their faces as they discovered how to hear God’s voice speaking to them through His word. I weep when I remember their uplifted white flags of surrender to the Lordship of Jesus.
