A survey conducted in 2016 by the Annenberg Public Policy Center found that 74 percent of Americans cannot name all three branches of the U.S. government. The blame rests at the lack of civics classes in our public schools. The fact is that very few states teach civics and haven’t done so in many years. We could lose our nation if we do not educate students about how our republic functions. Why have we not emphasized civics in our schools? The trend started in the 1990s but intensified in 2000 with the entrance of global assessment tests. One of the […]
Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon joined IFA for an impromptu Friday Prayer Call, Friday, May 10, 2019. Wow. It was incredible to hear how God has been at work using the movie Unplanned. Did you miss the call? Click to watch/listen below–your faith will be strengthened! Join us this Friday, May 17, 2019 to pray with Abby Johnson, the main character in the movie, and founder of And Then There Were None.
President Trump signed an executive order to start pulling the federal government out of K-12 education, following through on a campaign promise to return school control to state and local officials. The order, dubbed the “Education Federalism Executive Order,” will launch a 300-day review of Obama-era regulations and guidance for school districts and directs Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to modify or repeal measures she deems an overreach by the federal government. . . . [P]revious administrations had increasingly forced schools to comply with “whims and dictates” from Washington, but his administration would break the trend. “We know local communities know […]
Is there any prophetic message we can learn from the Kentucky Derby? I hadn’t thought of weighing in on the controversial race, until I saw a recent article that caught my attention. Kentucky Racing Commission Executive Director, Marc Guifoil, said in an interview with The Washington Post that the stewards (referees) who made the final determinations had to be totally impartial based on the playbook of the sport. “There’s no emotion in us,” said Guifoil, himself a former steward. “There’s no money wagered. There’s no favorites. With owners, with gamblers, there’s emotions.” He soon added, “You’ve got a book. You’ve […]
This perspective, shared by IFA President Dave Kubal, will revolutionize your thinking about politics and legislation.
In the history of bad bills, there are a lot of doozies. Just in the last handful of months, we’ve had a Democratic grab bag of everything from abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement to the Green New Deal. But nothing — not even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) crusade against airplanes and cows — compares to the one measure that out-radicals them all: the Equality Act. And the worst mistake any of us can make is not taking the threat seriously.Maybe, like a lot of Americans, you think the Democrats’ H.R. 5 is just about sex and gender. Well, think again. […]
President Trump’s approval rating has hit its highest levels since his inauguration in a recent poll. Trump has hit 46% approval in the latest Gallup poll, the highest level since the polling group began asking the question. His approval in the poll has been as low as 35%, but the new numbers show an increasingly positive trend for the president…. The poll found that Trump carries a 91% among Republicans, close to his record high of 92% support among the party back in November. The support might be buoyed by the release of Mueller’s redacted report, which showed that Trump […]
The United States Constitution is perhaps the most important document ever written for the benefit of mankind other than the Bible. A prestigious literary journal reveals the reason why, declaring in 1867: “The American government and Constitution is the most precious possession which the world holds, or which the future can inherit. This is true – true because the American system is the political expression of Christian ideas.” The Constitution went into effect in 1789, thirteen years after the United States separated from Great Britain and became a nation. The ideological foundation of the Constitution rests in the biblical roots […]
It’s no secret that our culture is on a steep spiritual decline. Perhaps this is because Christians have been slow to wake up and are only beginning to do so now as more of our freedoms are being taken away. But how do we make a difference? Greg Swan, a marketing and brand strategist, discovered something interesting while working on his wife’s Congressional race and, later on, 17 other Republican campaigns. By targeting church-going Christians, all 17 Republican politicians won their races. This guide, Intercessory Activism, is a great resource for prayer for our nation’s elections.

A day after graduating from college with a perfect 4.0 grade point average, Sarah Root was killed while sitting at a stoplight in Omaha, Nebraska. Edwin Mejia barreled his truck into the back of Root’s vehicle while street-racing with a 0.241% blood alcohol level, three times the legal limit. He was also an illegal immigrant from Honduras. “They thought he was going to flee, so they had a police officer posted outside of [his] room to take him directly to jail after he was released from the hospital,” Sarah’s mother, Michelle Root, told The Washington Times in a phone interview […]
How many phrases do you see on a daily basis that say something like, “You are enough” or “You are the only one who can limit your greatness”? I see them CONSTANTLY. I see them from celebrities on social media, on subway ads, on Pinterest, I mean – they’re EVERYWHERE. They sound great when you first read them but if you’re skeptical like me, you might find them to be hollow at their core. And if you’re REALLY like me you might see them and think, “Ohhh really? Because – umm – I’m burned out after a long workday, a stressful […]
Approximately 800,000 children go missing in the United States every year, and many of them end up in the hands of sex traffickers. After you read what I have to share with you, I guarantee you will start watching your children much more carefully when they are in public. Earlier today, I received an email from one of my readers encouraging me to check out John W. Whitehead’s latest article. So I did, and I was absolutely horrified by what I learned. In America today, authorities believe that the number of under-age sex workers is somewhere between 100,000 and 150,000. Those children are […]
Clarence Thomas has been a Supreme Court justice for nearly three decades. It may finally be his moment. Many Americans know Thomas largely from his bruising 1991 confirmation hearing, when he was accused of sexual harassment charges by former employee Anita Hill — charges he denied. People may know he’s a conservative and has gone years without speaking during arguments at the court. But scholars say it would be wise to pay closer attention to Thomas. Thomas is now the longest-serving member of a court that has recently gotten more conservative, putting him in a unique and potentially powerful position, […]
The move toward a totally cashless society is running into some roadblocks in the US and abroad. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to become the latest municipality to require retail stores to take cash. “I just felt it wasn’t fair that if someone wanted to buy a sandwich in a store, and they had cash, that they would be turned away,” Supervisor Vallie Brown, who introduced the legislation told The Associated Press. “We also have our homeless population. They’re not banked.” Critics say going cashless discriminates against low-income people who don’t have credit cards or bank accounts. […]
An overwhelming majority of Venezuelans would support a foreign military intervention to oust socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro and believe that the rogue regimes in Russia and Cuba have colonized their country, the national polling firm Meganálisis found in a survey published Monday. Asked if the federal legislature, the National Assembly, should authorize foreign military missions in the country, 89.5 percent of Venezuelans said yes. Another 91.2 percent said they did not believe it was possible for Venezuelans to remove Maduro without foreign military intervention. About 88 percent said they did not trust the nation’s armed forces. The demand for foreign intervention […]
The Tabernacle of David, or Tent of David, was a very unique thing! It wasn’t the Tabernacle of Moses(1) which was in Gibeon at the time of David (2 Chr. 21:29). Rather, it was a special tent or tabernacle set up in the city of David (Zion) as a transition “dwelling place” between the times of the tabernacle of Moses and the temple of Solomon. If the tent of David only lasted during David’s lifetime as a “transition,” then why does prophecy say that in the latter days it will be raised up again? What was so special about this […]
New analysis of research is challenging common stereotypes about politically conservative religious people, who, though thought to be religious and “cold-blooded,” report being as empathetic as political “bleeding-heart” liberals when surveyed. According to a study examining data from the General Social Survey — a National Science Foundation-funded sociological survey created and collected since 1972 out of the University of Chicago — political conservatives who are highly religious are as likely as political liberals to report similar levels of empathy, such as “having tender feelings of concern for others or being greatly disturbed by the others misfortunes of others,” noted David […]
Iran, through Palestinian Islamic Jihad – its proxy in Gaza – is behind the current escalation in the South, former national security adviser Yaakov Amidror said on Sunday. Amidror, in a conversation with The Israel Project, traced the current round of massive rocket fire on Israel to Friday, when an Islamic Jihad sniper fired on IDF soldiers patrolling the Gaza border, wounding two officers. Israel responded and killed two Hamas men, and then the rocket barrage began from Gaza. What made Friday’s shooting on the IDF patrol interesting, Amidror said, was that it took place precisely when Hamas and Islamic […]
I heard a man of God rehearsing his upbringing when he inserted the following, evoking a hearty laugh from the audience. “People ask me in my mischievous childhood if I ever got spankings? I surprise them when I say I was never spanked. But I sure got some ‘wuppins!'” Enjoying Turner Classic movies and reruns of wholesome family shows like Andy Griffith or Lassie, an occasional spanking for little children was just the norm when they persistently misbehaved. A little protoplasmic stimulation to the backside of learning got a wayward child back on track with a lesson learned. Celebrating Mother’s […]
When will all the lying come to an end? Now we have Democratic Party liars calling the Attorney General and the President liars. Trouble is that the news media is only reporting what people are saying rather than writing about the truth of what is happening. They are so caught up in trying to convict someone of something that they are missing the point. But, then again, they are part of the entire coup-machine that is hammering the public. The pith of the problem is that Democratic Party leadership paid for a false dossier on candidate Donald Trump and used […]
A square in the central Israel city of Petah Tikvah will be named after President Donald Trump, the city’s mayor announced. Rami Greenberg said Monday that he decided to name the square adjacent to City Hall for the US president because of “his unqualified support for the State of Israel,” The Jerusalem Post’s sister Hebrew newspaper,Maariv reported. The square will be dedicated officially on July 4, Greenberg said. The mayor said he will invite the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, government ministers and public figures. Last month, Netanyahu said he would name a new […]
I was approached recently by a potential client asking to work with my literary agency. “The audience I write to is the progressive Christian,” she stated in her introduction. It’s an interesting term and one that I hear more and more often. Another is the “Christian Left.” Unfortunately, the two terms can mix no better than oil and water. They are oxymorons. What is a “progressive Christian?” By definition both terms listed above embrace the following: To affirm that the teachings of Jesus provide just one of many ways to experience the “Sacredness and Oneness of life.” The importance of […]
A “Prince of ISIS” has done what many would consider unthinkable, making a commitment to turn away from his horrifying past to unite with a new way of life through Jesus Christ. The former ISIS leader, whose identity has been disguised for his safety, is being called Mohammad. The miraculous circumstances that led to his transformation were reported by Dr. Michael Youssef’s Leading The Way ministry. A new follow-up coordinator, Peter, received a call several years ago from a man who pleaded to meet with him. The man on the other end of the phone with Peter turned out to be […]
This excerpt is Day One of the new IFA devotional series Take Heart! Jesus Has Overcome the World! To give us perspective on what we are facing, let us review the words Jesus spoke just before His crucifixion. “…In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) Jesus did not hide the fact that Christians will face trouble, even to the extent of severe persecution. “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. […]
Schools across the country spent this last week honoring teachers during the nation’s teacher appreciation week. Here at IFA we are passionate about praying for teachers and students, and the Lord continually puts education issues on our hearts as needing prayer. We were encouraged to find out about this excellent ministry that encourages and empowers teachers to pray. It’s called Teachers Who Pray and was featured in Christianity Today, in an article we are excerpting here. Marilyn Rhames had made it. A journalist in New York City, she worked as a reporter for People and Time magazines. Then she started […]
All he wanted was to finish high school. Because Jerome Kunkel objects to receiving vaccines that are developed or manufactured using the remains of aborted babies, the 18-year-old senior and basketball captain was told he could not attend school until 21 days passed since the last student or staff member at his school first presented with chicken pox. This meant Kunkel was forced to miss his final term of classes and extracurricular activities at his Kentucky school, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart/Assumption Academy. When the Northern Kentucky Health Department made the announcement that all under- or unvaccinated students could […]
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to prevent Tehran from obtaining nuclear arms Wednesday, hours after Iran declared it would step up enrichment activity as the 2015 nuclear deal appeared close to crumbling. Netanyahu has been one of the leading critics of the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers. The US pulled out of the deal in May 2018, and Iran marked the one-year anniversary of that move by announcing it was pulling out of some commitments under the deal and could soon begin ramping up its enrichment activity again. “We will not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear […]
For several hours on Saturday, the island in the middle of Times Square between Broadway and Fashion Avenue was transformed into an open-air church for pro-life advocates who rallied against abortion, singing praises to God and sharing testimonies of survival. “I came here to tell a story,” Mary Pendergraft began as the crowd sang “How Great Thou Art.” The sun had come up after a wet, cold and overcast morning. It had warmed up enough for people who had braved raindrops to maintain their spot at the historic anti- abortion “Alive From New York” rally, hosted by Focus on the […]
Not long ago, I had a vision of hundreds of people on the shores of a new and unknown land, standing unsure and scared of what lay before them. They had no guide, no map, and no plan, and there was a sense of panic and and overwhelming fear. Right now, many people can relate to these feelings in this season. They are feeling a strange sense of purpose and destiny unfolding but at the same time fighting the feeling of concern after being suddenly directionless and lost. As I watched this scene play out, a vivid thought came to […]
One of the first and most important things we learned in the school yard was the concept of fair play. When running a race, you don’t start before the whistle is blown. In a game of hide-and-seek, you don’t peek to see the location of the other players. Starting the race before your opponents and peeking to see the location of your hiders violate the principle of fair play by giving you an unfair advantage. That concept of unfair advantage is the very reason we do not support the move toward allowing biological males to compete in female sports. It […]
Israel’s UN ambassador Danny Danon used the Bible to defend the Jewish people’s claim to the land of Israel during a special session at the United Nations Security Council on Monday. Danon was tasked with the job of proving the case for Jews’ connection to the Holy Land during the session. He outlined four reasons, “the Bible, history, international law, and the pursuit of international peace and security.” In a dramatic moment, Danon opened the Bible and read aloud God’s covenant with Abraham from Genesis 17: “And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your descendants after […]
Venezuela is not a good place to grow old. As president Nicolas Maduro starts his second term of office, the country is mired in an economic crisis that has brought the health care system to the brink of collapse. The lives of the elderly are more a battle to avoid calamity than a sweet retreat. At least 85 percent of medicines are in scarce supply, according to the Pharmaceutical Federation of Venezuela. “It’s too hard to find the medicines to treat their high blood pressure, diabetes and even prevent their epileptic seizures,” says Baudilio Vega, who’s in charge of the […]
Secretary Pompeo cancelled a trip to Berlin to meet Iraqi leaders during a four-hour stop in the capital Baghdad. He told the leaders that the US did not “want anybody interfering in their country”, and asked them to protect US troops in Iraq. The visit came days after the US deployed an aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln, to the region. Officials said the deployment was in response to threats to US forces and its allies from Iran. On Tuesday it was revealed the US was sending B-52 bombers…. Why was Mike Pompeo in Iraq? While in Baghdad, the US secretary […]
President Trump has had a superb 24 hours on his strongest (and America’s most important) foreign policy issue: China. First, Trump tweeted his impatience with Chinese prevarication in ongoing trade talks. And the president pledged to impose new tariffs if progress is not made by Friday. Then, on Monday, two U.S. Navy destroyers traveled within 12 miles of two reefs in the Spratly Islands chain of the South China Sea — reefs that China claims as its own, although illegitimately. China’s reaction to both acts was one of fury. One state newspaper described Trump’s tweet as blackmail. The Chinese Foreign […]
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed the “heartbeat” bill into law Tuesday morning. (Watch video below) Kemp kept his campaign promise in signing the bill, HB 481, technically called the “Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act,” which will prohibit abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The law allows exceptions in the case of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is in danger. Before the signing of the bill, State Rep. Ed Setzler pointed to science, law, and the simple fact that common sense says a beating heart is a […]
U.S. Southern Command announced Tuesday that the Norfolk, Virginia-based Navy hospital ship Comfort will deploy next month to the Caribbean region and Central and South America to provide humanitarian assistance, including assisting refugees affected by the political crisis in Venezuela. Pray for our military. Their work is much more extensive, difficult, and critical than we often realize. Use our prayer guide bookmark, written by a retired Army Brigadier General. The announcement came as the Pentagon and other South American countries increased calls for Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to step down. On Tuesday, Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan and Colombian […]
“One of the reasons why a day of reckoning for the U.S. economy is inevitable is because we are in way too much debt. The 22 trillion dollar debt that the federal government has accumulated gets most of the attention, but the truth is that we would still be 50 trillion dollars in debt even if the national debt was eliminated somehow. Today, debt levels are exploding on every level of society. Corporate debt has more than doubled since the last financial crisis, U.S. consumers are more than 13 trillion dollars in debt, and state and local governments are piling […]
Former President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder won’t tell the truth when it comes to their redistricting strategy, but here it is: Pick a state, any state, and sue until it’s blue. They have spent years and millions of dollars selling the false narrative that Democrats draw “fair maps” while any and all Republican-drawn maps are “partisan gerrymanders.” While rhetorically cute, their primary goal has nothing to do with fighting gerrymandering as they repeatedly claim, but to put redistricting in the hands of unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats and lifetime-appointed judges. Their strategy makes sense. There are plenty of unelected federal judges presiding over these redistricting cases who will enthusiastically toss out constitutionally drawn maps to help elect more Democrats. That’s exactly what happened recently in both Michigan […]
Prayer is God’s chosen way of directing His actions toward the world and shaping history, David Platt told prayer leaders at a pre-National Day of Prayer breakfast in Washington. “God in His sovereignty has chosen to make prayer a powerful means by which we interact with Him to effectively shape the course of history. Is this not mind-boggling, totally baffling?” Platt said. “And this is not an overstatement. … Don’t underestimate the role of desperate prayer in your life and in the world.” Platt, pastor of McLean Bible Church in McLean, Va., and former International Mission Board president, preached at […]
On April 10, 2019, two thousand plus people packed into the Washington State Capitol building to protest SB 5395. The “comprehensive sex-ed bill” up for a final vote before becoming law, required all public schools in the state to teach “comprehensive” sex education and gender theory in all grades, beginning with kindergarten. With complete backing from Planned Parenthood, the LGBT lobby, and the state’s educational lobby, the bill was sure to pass. But this day, things didn’t go as planned, God’s people, prepared in prayer, watched from the gallery as SB 5395 was defeated. What happened in Washington State is […]
Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed a bill into law on Tuesday that requires abortionists to first check for a heartbeat before being permitted to kill an unborn child, but with the stated “compromise” exceptions of rape, incest, the life of the mother or when the pregnancy is deemed “medically futile.” House Bill 481, also known as the “Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act,” mandates that “[n]o abortion is authorized or shall be performed if an unborn child has been determined … to have a detectable human heartbeat.” It also clarifies in regard to Georgia homicide law, “For the […]
The House Judiciary Committee has voted out the Equality Act of 2019. It now heads for a vote on the House floor with 240 co-sponsors, which means its passage is virtually certain. The legislation amends all major civil rights law, including the 1964 Civil Rights Act, to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” along with race, sex and religion as classes that are protected from discrimination. There is so much wrong here it is hard to know where to start. My dictionary defines psychosis as “a severe mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that contact is […]
In today’s culture of increasing identity confusion, there is a need for believers to understand and model a healthy identity and purpose that is Christ-centered and Kingdom-focused. When we know who we are, why we’re here, and where we’re going, we will offer to the world a picture of what a true son and daughter of the Kingdom looks like. Here are seven keys that may help start the process in learning how to know your true identity in the Kingdom of God in order to fulfill your call and assignment. 1-Determine to love Jesus more than anyone or anything. […]
Tensions are still high in Venezuela after violent protests turned deadly [last] week. A Venezuelan human rights group claims four people died in street clashes this week after the opposition leader Juan Guaido called for a military uprising. [Last] Thursday was relatively calm in the Venezuelan capital city Caracas as government forces were out in full force trying to stabilize the country after a violent 48 hours. Residents are back on the streets trying to resume life under very difficult circumstances. Caracas resident Ana Morales said, “I see a bad future ahead if we continue in the situation that we […]
One student was killed and eight others were injured Tuesday when a shooting occurred at a Colorado school that serves grades kindergarten through 12th grade. The mass shooting took place at STEM School Highlands Ranch, which is located in Douglas County and has more than 1,800 students…. 1. Heroic students tackled gunman Nui Giasolli, a student who witnessed the shooting, told the “Today” show that several of her male classmates tackled Erickson. “Kendrick lunged at him and he shot Kendrick, giving all of us enough time to get underneath our desks, to get ourselves safe and to run across the […]
Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman who spent eight years on death row for blasphemy against Islam before she was freed last year, is now safely in Canada and reunited with her family, her lawyer has said. “It is a big day,” Saiful Malook told the Guardian. “Asia Bibi has left Pakistan and reached Canada. She has reunited with her family. Justice has been dispensed.” Pakistani TV channels Geo and ARY, citing unidentified sources, also reported Bibi had left the country. Roman Catholic Bibi was acquitted of her religious crime last year but has since faced death threats in Pakistan and was offered asylum by multiple countries […]
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that it was “clear that this is not the end of the campaign,” hours after a ceasefire to end a surge of deadly violence in the Gaza Strip and southern Israel took hold on Monday. The latest round of hostilities erupted three days ago, peaking on Sunday when rockets and missiles from Hamas Islamist-run Gaza killed four civilians in Israel, local health officials said. Israeli strikes killed 21 Palestinians, over half of them civilians, at the weekend, Gaza health authorities said. “Over the last two days we renewed the policy of targeted killings of […]
President Trump reinstated and expanded the pro-life Mexico City policy in January 2017 to ensure no U.S. taxpayer money for global “health” can be provided to foreign NGOs engaged in abortion. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a strong pro-life advocate, is now following through on President Trump’s mandate by ensuring the Mexico City Policy is enforced to the broadest extent possible. What does this mean? It means that the U.S. State Department will refuse to work with any foreign non-governmental organization (NGO) engaged in the abortion business. The U.S. State Department will also refuse to fund foreign NGOs that give […]
The United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the Middle East region in response to “troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” from the Iranian government…. “The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces,” Bolton said. The latest move continues to ratchet up tensions between Washington and Tehran. Last month, in a bid to put further pressure on the Iranian government, the Trump administration announced that […]
President Trump on Sunday named Mark Morgan as the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, calling him a “true believer and American Patriot.” Mr. Morgan, a career FBI agent who served as border patrol chief in the last six months of the Obama administration, was tapped to replace acting director Ron Vitiello, who resigned last month after Mr. Trump said he wanted to go with someone “tougher” on border security. You can send a prayer or message of encouragement to the new Director of ICE, Mark Morgan, by clicking below. “I am pleased to inform all of those that believe […]
Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’ (Ez 37:4-6) As intercessors, we have often used this story in Ezekiel 37 as a formula for declaring life into dead situations, relationships, and […]
From May 25th to June 3, the last 10 days of the 2019 Ramadan, Muslims will be opening themselves up to demonic spirits for direction, visions, indwelling, and influence. That is part of the Ramadan celebration, as shared by former Jihadist Kamal Saleem, who grew up and was trained as a culture jihadist Muslim. This time of welcoming spirits can also be a strategic time for Christians to pray for Muslims. Instead of demonic spirits visiting Muslims, they can be visited by Jesus instead! There are so many interesting and critical points for understanding the Muslim faith, and how you […]
On Friday, May 3, 2019, a group of IFA Staff and intercessors joined national Christian leaders at the Embassy of Israel in Washington, DC, for the 17th Annual Christian Solidarity Event. If you have never heard Ambassador Ron Dermer speak, take the time to watch these short videos. He communicates very clearly and effectively about the importance of a strong bond between Israel and the United States. In the first clip, he shares a special message from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for American Christians like you. In the second, he explains how President Trump is the most pro-Israel president in […]
Last week, IFA staff and intercessors who were part of our Capital Prayer Encounter were blessed to hear Andrew and Norine Brunson share the story of his imprisonment and release at two National Day of Prayer events in Washington, DC. (Tracey DeBlank, Judy McDonough, and Kris Kubal are pictured with Pastor Brunson.) Although Pastor Brunson anticipated praising God and experiencing spiritual highs during his two-year imprisonment, the reality was very different. He shared that he struggled throughout the time he was imprisoned. He said that he would work to accept his situation and something worse would happen, over and over. […]
In February, the Yale Law School chapter of the Federalist Society invited Kristen Waggoner of the Alliance Defending Freedom to speak on campus. This, to put it mildly, didn’t go over well with some of the law school’s more “woke” students. Using talking points straight from the Southern Poverty Law Center, students protested Waggoner’s visit, calling the ADF a “homophobic, transphobic hate group.” If that’s all that had happened, it would “merely” have been yet another example of progressive intolerance. However, the way things escalated makes clear how serious the on-campus threats to religious freedom have become, and just where […]
According to a new Gallup poll, “Even as their economy roared, more Americans were stressed, angry and worried last year than they have been at most points during the past decade. Asked about their feelings the previous day, the majority of Americans (55%) in 2018 said they had experienced stress during a lot of the day, nearly half (45%) said they felt worried a lot and more than one in five (22%) said they felt anger a lot.” “Additionally, Gallup’s latest annual update on the world’s emotional state shows Americans were more likely to be stressed and worried than much […]
Child exploitation should not be controversial, yet to the modern LGBT left it seems to be a subjective matter depending on what political or social narrative they want to pursue. Child drag queens appear to be a growing trend after the success of Desmond Napoles, who has been in the public eye since he was nine years old. While many oppose the idea of minors performing drag at all, it shouldn’t be considered a “conservative” position to oppose them performing drag in adult bars. Drag is inherently sexual in nature. The origin and purpose of drag is to indulge adult […]
Write it down! On May 4th 2019, a near perfect 70 degree afternoon, in the middle of Times Square, in New York City, from three sound stages blasting thousands of decibels into the surrounding neighborhoods, the final speaker of the day said that, “Soon… Abortion will become… unthinkable!” The statement came after a 90 minute program that had been slated as a “public celebration of life.” Not content to believe the organizers, protestors attempted to disrupt the proceedings. But those protests, which began with profane chants, obscene signs, and thundering drums, ended with nary a whimper, and dispersed far more […]
Washington lawmakers believe they’ve found a bipartisan solution to lowering the cost of prescription drugs. A proposal called “binding arbitration” is being promoted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s top advisers, who reportedly believe the Trump administration will be on board. Let’s hope the measure doesn’t gain steam. Binding arbitration — essentially government price controls — would be catastrophic for patients. It would undercut medical innovation and bar American patients from accessing innovative treatments. Binding arbitration was first floated by leftist health policy experts in 2008. More recently, a handful of congressional Democrats, and even the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), […]
Emergency Prayer Alert Escalation with Gaza From Intercessors for Israel: May 5th, 2019 Israel is at the brink of war with the terrorists running Gaza! Pray for the Security Cabinet, the IDF General Staff and especially PM and Defense Minister Netanyahu that they will have God’s tactics and strategy for the battle. Tactics: how to fight the day to day battles. Strategy: putting together the proper tactics to produce the desired end of war results. Pray for them to have God’s timing and if it is the time that they would not hesitate to do what needs to be done, […]
Recently, scientists have confirmed that discrepancies between measurements from the Hubble telescope and earlier telescopes. Their conclusion is that the universe is expanding at a much faster rate than previously thought. According to a news release from NASA’s Hubblesite: “New physics may be needed to rectify the universe’s past and present behavior. There is something wrong with our universe. Or, more specifically, it is outpacing all expectations for its present rate of expansion. Something is amiss in astronomers’ efforts to measure the past and predict the present, according to a discrepancy between the two main techniques for measuring the universe’s […]
Progressive organizations, many financed by billionaire activist George Soros, are working overtime to restore voting rights for Florida’s nearly 1.4 million ex-felons as the nation’s biggest swing state seems poised to play a pivotal electoral role in the 2020 presidential race. The current battle revolves around a Florida state amendment that was passed last year restoring voting rights for felons, with progressive groups opposing a local bill that would require the state’s ex-felons to first pay civil fines and court fees before registering to vote. Florida’s Amendment Four was approved by voters in last year’s midterm elections. The heavily Soros-funded […]
The Founders of America had a providential view of history. In an address to the United States Congress in 1866, historian George Bancroft reflected this predominant philosophy when he said: “that God rules in the affairs of men is as certain as any truth of physical science.” American history is filled with instances of God’s supernatural intervention in important events. In the colonial era this included, among myriads of examples, Pocahontas providentially saving John Smith’s life, God sending Squanto to help the Pilgrims survive in their new home, William Penn receiving a charter – “through my God,” he said – […]
The summit between Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un is over. And their message was clear. The U.S. is welcome at the negotiating table but they are not necessary to resolving the situation. Russia, however, is. Kim went to Vladivostok to build a relationship with Putin and put the U.S. on the spot. Per Putin’s comments after the summit: We are going to discuss the situation with the US. Russia is always open on this – there are no conspiracies. More than that Kim Jong-un personally asked us to inform Washington of his position and the issues he wants to ask about. […]
There are some plagues that mankind seems to be incapable of fully destroying. One of these plagues is slavery, which has existed since man moved from being a hunter-gatherer to agriculture. Slavery is the condition where an individual is deprived of much of the product he or she produces and often all or much of their property. The ancient Greeks held slaves. The Romans held slaves. The Chinese held slaves. The Ottoman Turks held slaves. Serfdom, a less restricted form of slavery, existed in Europe from the fall of Rome until it was finally abolished in Russia in 1861. The […]
Policymakers and politicians love to flex their muscles. They actively try to boost or slow down economic activity based on their perceptions as to whether the economy is “too hot” or “too cold.” It’s unfortunate; Americans are better served when the federal government remains neutral on economic matters. This rule applies to monetary policy as well, but the U.S. remains far from achieving a goal of monetary neutrality. Part of the problem was on display earlier this month when Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, sent open letters to Stephen Moore and Herman Cain, who then were prospective Federal Reserve Board […]
Americans are becoming increasingly sedentary, spending almost a third of their waking hours sitting down, and computer use is partly to blame, a new study found. Over almost a decade, average daily sitting time increased by roughly an hour, to about eight hours for U.S. teens and almost 6 1/2 hours for adults, according to the researchers. That includes school and work hours, but leisure-time computer use among all ages increased too. By 2016, at least half of American kids and adults spent an hour or more of leisure time daily using computers. The biggest increase was among the oldest […]
A recent study showed that 60% of Americans said reading the Bible has “transformed their lives.” The American Bible Society published its annual “State of the Bible,” a study conducted by Barna Group, which examines the relationship of Americans with the Bible. Our research shows that when people engage with the Word, their lives are bettered. —Roy Peterson, president and CEO of American Bible Society According to the study, more Americans are consulting the Bible in 2019 than in 2018, with 21 million people reading the Bible for guidance this year, reports Relevant Magazine. Also, 15 million people who were […]
This excerpt is Day One of a five-day devotional series on growing the qualities of an effective intercessor. Sign up to receive each day via email. First, we must define terms. “Intercession” is from a Latin root, meaning “to come between.” Then we must ask, “To come between what or whom?” And the answer in a biblical context is, “Intercession means to come between God and the object of God’s just wrath and judgment.” With that, we come to the account of Abraham’s intercession before God for the wicked city of Sodom, which we find in Genesis 18 and 19. […]
Last [month], when a deranged lunatic gunned down dozens of Muslims at two mosques in New Zealand it suddenly became the biggest news story in the world, and rightly so. [When The Sri Lankan Holy Week blasts at churches occurred, many could barely mention the word “Christians” instead choosing to call them Easter Worshippers. Some talking heads even dared to classify the Sri Lankan attacks as retaliatory action to the New Zealand mosque killings, as though justified. (This possibility has been debunked by experts who say the timing is not plausible.) This column was written just before the Sri Lankan […]
A former U.S. State Department employee pleaded guilty on April 24 to conspiring with Chinese agents, after she admitted to receiving tens of thousands of dollars in gifts in exchange for providing internal department documents to China, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) said in a press release. Candace Claiborne, 63, was accused of lying to law enforcement officers, and hiding extensive contacts and gifts from two Chinese intelligence agents—who rewarded her for complying with their requests to transfer State Department documents, according to the DOJ. State Department staff are required to report any contacts with suspected foreign intelligence agents […]
A 2014 California rule forcing religious groups, including churches, to cover elective abortions for employees was the result of direct pressure from Planned Parenthood, internal emails have shown. On April 4, three churches filed a notice of appeal against the measure, which they contend violates basic religious freedom and conscience protections. In support of the appeal, attorneys from Alliance Defending Freedom, which represents the churches, submitted internal emails between Planned Parenthood employees and state Department of Health and Human Services. “The government shouldn’t be forcing churches to pay for abortion, and it is shameful and inappropriate that the government did […]
France flagged “more than 78,000 people” as jihadist security threats in 2017; three churches a day are attacked there; anti-Semitism is so prevalent (and violent) in France that it prompted the President of the Confederation of Jews in France to conclude that “in a few decades, there will be no Jews in France.” But none of these facts have troubled globalist Emanuel Macron (and company), whose focus is on making everyone feel welcome in France, no matter what. Never mind those who choose not to integrate. This can be partially explained due to the fact that Macron does not believe that there is anything […]
About 300,000 migrants from around the globe entered Mexico with the intention of illegally crossing into the United States in the first three months of 2019, according to Mexican officials. The country’s Interior Secretary Olga Sánchez Cordero said at a press conference on April 23 that Mexico had seen an increase in migrants from Honduras and a smaller number from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Cuba along with African and Asian nations, reported local news website Mexico News Daily. Sánchez Cordero described this migration flow as “unprecedented and unusual” and added that “six caravanas madrecitas” or little mother caravans that have around 2,000 people in each […]
Canada’s Ontario province has passed legislation that allows the government to seize children from families that refuse to accept their child’s chosen “gender identity” or “gender expression.” The so-called Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, or Bill 89, was approved by a vote of 63 to 23, according to The Christian Times. It requires child protection, foster, adoption service providers, and judges to take into account and respect a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.” “I would consider that a form of […]
Today is the National Day of Prayer! Across the nation at noon everyone is reciting the National Day Prayer, in unity. Here is the prayer: ALMIGHTY GOD, our Heavenly Father, we look to You alone for the future of America. By Your providence, You have placed each of us here at this time in history to be in this nation. Thank You for this blessing. Thank You for America. BUT ABOVE ALL, we thank You for the gift of Your Son, Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. It is in His name, we come to You as we […]
God is up to something huge, Wallace Henley says in his new book, Call Down Lightning: What the Welsh Revival Reveals About the End Times. And it’s that particular revival and historical cycle that reveals the world is about to see a fresh outpouring of the Spirit. Henley, whose previous experience includes time as a journalist and a congressional and White House aide, is confident that we are about to see it happen. He is presently the senior associate pastor at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, and what precipitated his latest book was the “immensity of the [political and […]
Whether or not you are attending a prayer observance today, there are two things you do right from your home to celebrate the National Day of Prayer. First, send a message to your elected officials that you are praying for them. It’s not difficult–click the link, enter your name and address (required because only constituents can use these kinds of systems to send messages to elected officials) and click once to send your message to all your state and federal elected officials. Second, pray in agreement with IFA staff and intercessors who are praying at the Capitol Building in D.C. […]
McLean Bible Church Pastor David Platt recently answered some common questions about prayer and highlighted how God uses the prayers of his children for the good of His people and ultimately, for His glory in the world. During the Secret Church event held at McLean Bible Church in Washington, D.C., Platt acknowledged that many Christians struggle to pray because they don’t understand how their prayers fit with the purposes of a sovereign God. “Does prayer change God’s mind? And does prayer change anything, for that matter?” Platt asked. “If God is sovereign, if God’s in control of all things, and […]
More people globally — including a majority in the United States — say that they desire to see religion play a more important role in their country, new polling data from the Pew Research Center shows. This week, Pew released data compiled from years of polling over 30,000 people in 27 countries that asked respondents about diversity, gender equality, and religion in their respective countries. The random samples were nationally representative for each country with about 1,000 being surveyed per country. Among the questions, respondents were asked if they favor or oppose the idea of religion having a more important role in […]
What happens when a nation loses its conscience? When the light barely shines in the darkness? When truth is obscured by lies? We can answer those questions with another question: What does America look like in 2019? We are a nation adrift. A nation confused. A nation in danger of completely losing our moral bearings. A nation where right is now wrong and wrong is now right. A nation where evil is celebrated and virtue is denigrated. But I don’t primarily blame the society at large for these problems. I don’t primarily blame the people of the world (although, to […]
The United States is joining Jews in Israel and around the world in honoring the victims of the Holocaust this week. President Donald Trump declared that April 28 to May 5 is Holocaust Remembrance Week. “On Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, and during this week of solemn remembrance, we honor the six million Jewish men, women, and children who were brutally murdered by the Nazi regime,” Trump said in a statement. “We also remember the Roma and Sinti, persons with disabilities, Poles and Slavic ethnic groups, Soviet prisoners of war, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and persons who were targeted based on their […]
The annual “Bible Reading Marathon” is on the steps of the U.S. Capitol this week. Scripture will be read aloud, uninterrupted, for just under four days straight. “Because the Bible is at the heart of America’s founding principles, it should be voiced at the heart of our Federal Government, exhorting our nation to return to God’s precepts,” the vision statement on the website for DC Bible Marathon explains. “Therefore, it is our desire to publicly read God’s Holy Word on the steps of the nation’s Capitol, every year, for ninety consecutive hours.” Established in 1990, the marathon brings hundreds of […]
President Donald Trump has directed his staff to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terror group, a move that would impose severe travel and economic sanctions on partners and others who associate with the group. The plan was first reported April 30 by the New York Times which noted that the policy dictate followed an April 9 White House visit by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. The sanctions imposed would reportedly punish those who fund the group or provide banking services, and ban members or those with ties to the group from entering the United States. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed the Trump administration […]
Strikes against ISIS tunnel network mark a first for the USAF – a year after Israel became the first to use the jet in a combat. Two weeks after the United States Air Force (USAF) deployed several F-35 fighter jets to the Middle East, the jets carried out their first combat mission in Iraq against Islamic State targets. The first American combat sortie of the stealth fighter jet came a day after Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi appeared in a video for the first time in five years – since he declared the caliphate in a now infamous speech […]
Democrats can dream of a 50-state strategy, per Howard Dean, but it’s only a dream. The South, once the exclusive preserve of Democrats and yellow dogs, is almost solid again, and this time Democrats and yellow dogs have been evicted and the region is red and safely Republican. The Rust Belt, once a Democratic stronghold, voted for Donald Trump, and might again. Bernie Sanders thinks he can fix all that by making the nation’s prison population solid for the Democrats…. “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished,” Mr. Sanders said. “They may be […]
President Trump and first lady Melania Trump will jet to Britain in June for a long-planned state visit and then head to France for ceremonies honoring the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the White House said Tuesday. The visits are designed to shore up the “steadfast and special relationship” between the U.S. and the United Kingdom and to bolster “shared economic and security interests” with France, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.In the first leg of the trip, from June 3 to 5, Mr. Trump will head to Downing Street in London for meetings with Prime Minister Theresa May, who is steeped in thorny talks over leaving the European Union. […]
Benjamin Franklin was known as one of the least religious founders. He has been labeled a deist, one who sees God as Creator but who doesn’t believe He interacts with His creation. Interestingly, at the end of his days he appeared to have a change of heart as he couldn’t deny that God intervened on numerous occasions over the course of the American Revolution. At the Constitutional Convention, Franklin at 81, reminds his colleagues they cannot forget what God had done and insists all need to continue to seek His assistance in order for the Republic to endure. He proposed […]
The Trump administration is considering suspending or limiting entry of nationals from countries with high rates of visa overstays as it seeks to clamp down on illegal immigration…. In the next four-months, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the Department of Homeland Security will be required to present plans on how to prevent people from overstaying their business and tourist visas, said OANN. President Trump signed a memo on Monday giving the State and Homeland Security departments 120 days to come up with measures to tackle the problem according to the Washington Examiner. “We have laws that need to be […]
More than 100 Chinese police officers and SWAT team members closed a newly constructed church and beat dozens of Christians who were guarding it, and then buried Bibles and hymnbooks before leaving. The incident in Henan – China’s third largest province – took place in January and was reported by BitterWinter.org April 10. Chinese officials also seized the church’s cash and other possessions. “As soon as they entered the church, they smashed the donation box and pocketed the money, which totaled thousands of [yuan – likely hundreds in U.S. dollars.] They also questioned us about where all of our church’s […]
From The Washington Examiner: “We need to make certain our scarce public resources help those who are legally entitled to it,” department Secretary Ben Carson said in a statement. “Given the overwhelming demand for our programs, fairness requires that we devote ourselves to legal residents who have been waiting, some for many years, for access to affordable housing.” The new rule would disallow illegal immigrants from living in houses that receive subsidies from the department regardless of whether they were the direct recipient or not. Previously, rules allowed illegal immigrants to benefit from subsides by living with relatives who were […]
What is Sharia Law and should we be concerned as it makes its way across the globe? “Sharia” is the Arabic term for Islamic law, and it literally translates as “a path to water where people can drink and seek nourishment.”[i] That’s the definition. But those who have lived under the brutality of this religious and political ideology along with its rigid rules of conduct, describe it much differently—especially women. According to Islamic law, women are worth only half that of a man. Quran (4:11) – “The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females.” Quran (2:282) […]
The Islamic State (ISIS) has now taken credit for the Muslim massacre of Christians in Sri Lanka. On average over 300 Christians a month are killed for their faith globally. This is the end result of a campaign of disrespect and hate towards Christians that have become a significant theme of American politics as well. Is it merely coincidental that the most rapidly rising candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, Pete Buttigieg launched his campaign with an unfounded and unprovoked attack on America’s vice president because he is a Christian? In fact, as Buttigieg’s governor in Indiana, Pence had been particularly generous to […]
In January 2019, IFA intercessors like you covered the March for Life in prayer. President of March for Life, Jeanne Mancini, wants to tell you how thankful she is and how powerful your prayers were. Click the video to listen to her special message.
Due to her amazing job taking care of our home, 9 birds, 2 cats, one greyhound and me, my wife Mary has not followed the intricate details of the Mueller/deep state silent coup to end Trump’s presidency. Mary asked, “Is Mueller a good guy or a bad guy? To prevent her eyes from glazing over, I kept it simple. Mueller is a bad guy. He could have concluded in two weeks that Trump did not collude with Russia to steal the presidential election from Hillary Clinton. And yet, Mueller dragged out his bogus investigation for over two years which dramatically […]
There is a reason the enemy loves to stir up confusion and chaos on the earth. He is terrified of what will happen when the sons and daughters of the Kingdom begin to operate in their full capacity to bring order and alignment to creation. For the LORD is God, and He created the heavens and earth and put everything in place. He made the world to be lived in, not to be a place of empty chaos . . . (Is 45:18, NLT) From the very beginning, God’s design was for us to join Him in creating, enriching, multiplying, […]
While the enemy is trying to divide us, the Lord wants to unite us. Where the world is trying to conform us, the Lord wants to set us apart. Until we learn to value our oneness in spirit more than we value our own opinions, we will be powerless against the spiritual giants in the land. If we want to be effective change agents in our nation we can no longer stand alone. Even with carefully crafted prayers and declarations, good intentions, and a common desire to see God glorified, we must get past the things that divide us and learn […]
There is a reason that HR1 has been a priority to the liberals–it is capable of changing the vote. Just ask Minnesota–it happened to them, and it flipped the election leading to the passage of ObamaCare. Find out how we can be praying about this bill and not let this happen again!
Last month, the special Select Investigative Panel of the Energy and Commerce Committee released its Final Report. The results of months of investigation, the special panel’s report addressed the involvement of Planned Parenthood in harvesting and possibly selling fetal tissue and organs harvested from aborted babies. Those results were summarized in Part One. In examining the fetal tissue industry, the panel looked not just at the supply side– Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics–but all the way up the chain to the demand side–to the universities and the researchers who were paying for and using tissue harvested from aborted babies. Though […]
The New York Times deleted a political cartoon over the weekend after acknowledging that it contained “anti-Semitic tropes,” an episode decried as the latest example of rising anti-Semitism on the left. The cartoon depicted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dog wearing a Star of David collar leading a blind President Trump, who wore a yarmulke, an image that contained “anti-Semitic tropes,” said The New York Times in a Saturday editor’s note. “The image was offensive, and it was an error in judgment to publish it,” said the note. “It was provided by The New York Times News Service […]

Here is a brief excerpt, click below to watch the video interview. “Forty-eight percent of Muslims in the United States of America believe that they are Muslim first, American second. Our purpose is to change this country, because […]
Back in February, Intercessors for America was presented with information that proved many immunizations were developed using the diploid cells from aborted fetuses. We couldn’t believe it. We also couldn’t believe that we hadn’t heard about this finding earlier and that this wasn’t all over the news. We felt the Lord calling us to unveil this issue and we did, very carefully. Our Special Report on this topic was released at the beginning of March–you can find it here. Since that time, we have noticed the immunization issue all over the news in one form or another. As we read […]
I don’t care what this demented young man claims. I don’t care how much scripture he can quote or how much Christianese he uses. The man is not a Christian. And I can say that on the authority of the New Testament. Jesus Himself deplores such heinous, murderous, cowardly acts. How can I be so sure? Jesus taught us to judge a tree by its fruits. James (actually, Jacob) wrote that we must prove our faith by our works and that faith without accompanying works was dead. And John (Yochanan in Hebrew) said that “no murderer has eternal life abiding […]
