Lord God, we pray for California, and all of our nation, for leaders who still honor God and pray most of all for a revival.
809 People Prayed
California needs your prayers. The book Destined for the Throne may be the best book I’ve read on prayer and it says that “God will not act unless we pray.” California needs God to act. Once the envy of the world with beautiful landscapes, perfect climate, thriving economy, robust agriculture and of course the world leader in entertainment, California now is sick and broken and stumbling towards death. California needs your prayers. Mayor Wells was […]
Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar (TX) is secretly sending staff to Mexico to find and coach migrants who are trying to enter the United States and is instructing them how to “exploit a loophole” to game the asylum process, multiple U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials allege. The Washington Examiner reports that, according to the National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and several CBP agents, Escobar’s staff is trying to find migrants that have […]

We have often posted articles about the growing intolerance of the left and the tyranny of political correctness.

That which is giving way – that which is crumbling – that which seems to be falling apart – is not doing so simply because of man’s sin or the enemy’s attacks. These seismic shifts that are occurring in the landscape of our culture are happening because there is a RIVER that is flowing stronger and stronger in the land. It is the river of the SPIRIT of God. It is a movement of supernatural […]
Lord, we thank you for this victory! We pray that further defunding of Planned Parenthood would take place!

A federal appeals court [Thursday] ruled President Donald Trump can partially defund planned Parenthood while the abortion business’ lawsuit against his administration’s new rules moves forward. The abortion chain receives about $50 million to $60 million in Title X funds annually, but that could change now that the new rules are being implemented. The administration’s changes to Title X family planning grants have angered the abortion chain Planned Parenthood, prompting a lawsuit, but they provide […]

Lord God Almighty, we pray that You would block ACR99 in California. No matter the law, empower your people to share truth and hope with friends and family who are LGBTQ.
242 People Prayed
A shocking conversion therapy ban bill, ACR99, not only prohibits counselors from providing counseling around unwanted same-sex attraction, it also officially states that religious people are the cause for increased suicides and depression in LGBTQ individuals. This bill has passed the California General Assembly and is now being considered in the Senate. Not only is this a flagrant violation of First Amendment Rights, this misrepresents the intent of religious people and misappropriates blame. Assemblyman Evan […]

This past week, Planned Parenthood celebrated the end of Pride Month by tweeting, “Young LGBTQ people need sex education that addresses their identities and experiences, so that they have the information and skills to take care of their sexual health.” I agree.

As you read reports of the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein and the uncovering of the sex trafficking ring he is accused of running, consider the words of this very godly woman, as reported by Fox News earlier this summer.

Maybe the greatest threat to our economy and way of life is the fact that so many people have agreed to abandon objective truth and embrace feelings and what they want to be real. The consequences of such are severe even if not initially realized. Like the fable of the Emperor’s New Clothes, a society can delude itself for a while. But then all of a sudden, objective truth bursts through and everyone realize just […]

Former quarterback-turned-social-justice-warrior Colin Kaepernick caused a stir right before the July Fourth holiday after somehow convincing Nike’s top brass that a patriotic shoe it was set to release represented slavery. In a last-minute move as the Air Max 1 Quick Strike “Betsy Ross flag” shoes were hitting store shelves, Nike pulled its release and immediately made national headlines. And Ross’ name was subsequently dragged through the mud. But before Kaepernick — a man who once donned socks […]

Now housed inside a Greek Orthodox church, the well is carved into solid rock. Visitors are allowed to lower […]

Someday Roe v. Wade will be reversed. Would you join me in hastening that day by signing a petition to the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse Roe v. Wade? Together, the Roe, Doe, and Casey cases have allowed the killing of millions of children in the womb. The petition establishes that Abortion is a Crime against Humanity. A crime against humanity occurs when the government withdraws legal protection from a class of human beings; in […]

Caution: Adult content. Libraries used to host a reading from a Caldecott medal author or offer storytime for tots, reading Curious George.

Insist on a public meeting place like a cafe or shopping center.
Do not meet in a secluded place, or invite strangers into your home.
Tell a friend or family member where you’re going.
Take your cell phone along if you have one.
Consider having a friend accompany you.
