A new, massive study of whether genetic factors contribute to same-sex behavior just reported its results. Media outlets are reporting on this in various ways, but Scientific American is a fairly mainstream, unbiased source and this is what they published: “Analysis of half a million people suggests genetics may have a limited contribution to sexual orientation. Now, a new study claims to dispel the notion that a single gene or handful of genes make a person prone to same-sex behavior. The analysis, which examined the genomes of nearly half a million men and women, found that although genetics are certainly […]
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) unloaded on the New York Times after leaked meeting transcript allegedly shows editors discussing plans to tie President Donald Trump to racism. Late last week, Slate published the transcript of a recorded meeting allegedly held by New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet where he addressed the staff about their political coverage. Baquet acknowledged that the New York Times took the Mueller investigation from a story about “whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia and obstruction of justice to being a more head-on story about the president’s character.” Now that the Mueller report came up […]
USA TODAY reports that “Americans are facing the 2020 presidential election with a dominant feeling: Dread.” “A nationwide USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll found a sharply divided country that views next year’s presidential campaign as a sobering test of the fundamental values of the United States. A majority of those on both sides called the election the most important of their lifetimes. And after it’s over? If the candidate they support loses, nearly four in 10 said they would have little or no confidence that the election had been conducted in a fair-and-square way, setting up what could be a debate […]
The Church of America is suffering from double vision. There are two different interpretations of reality being promoted today causing confusion, division, and an inability to move forward. Some are perceiving current issues from a natural perspective and human reasoning, while others are looking to an unseen realm for clarity. The very thing that should set us apart as “Spirit-filled” believers is that we see things from a different vantage point. We do not judge by outward appearances or natural instinct. We judge by the Spirit; a higher reality that filters out the flesh and rightly interprets through heaven’s eyes. […]
Recently I heard the Lord say “Miracles in Marriages”. The Lord showed me that there are SIGNIFICANT miracles that are increasing in marriages right now and will continue to in this new era. The Lord showed me that where many have been battling through marital issues that have seemed to go from “bad to worse” by the power of His Spirit moving miraculously within the marriage, the marriage is now going to go from glory to glory and strength to strength. There are MAJOR miracles taking place in marriages right now. The Lord is restoring marriages and He is restoring […]
A landmark euthanasia trial is taking place in the Netherlands right now. The case centers on a 74-year-old woman euthanized three years ago who might have changed her mind. Her doctor is on trial, accused of not making a sufficient effort to find out if she still wanted to die. And last year, Belgian officials began investigating a case in which doctors may have improperly killed a woman with autism. Death decisions can be very complicated in countries like the Netherlands and Belgium which have legalized doctor-induced death for reasons that even include mental illness. Belgium actually boasts the world’s […]
Americans used to be taught to value hard work, family, religion and patriotism, but in the new age of social media and enlightened awareness, young Americans are placing their values in other areas of life. The Wall Street Journal and NBC News recently conducted a survey rating the values among young people throughout the country. When comparing the answers of young people 21 years ago to young people today, they found that back then patriotism, religion, hard work and family were among the top values — today, the only remaining constant is hard work. According to the survey, 61 percent cited patriotism […]
A report released Thursday by the Justice Department inspector general accused former FBI Director James Comey of blatantly violating his responsibilities as a top law enforcement officer when he kept copies of bureau material, gave some of it to his attorneys and leaked a memo to The New York Times in an effort to attack President Donald Trump. And it used Comey’s own words to make its case. The 79-page report contains the results of the inspector general’s investigation into Comey’s decision in May 2017 to give a memo he had written regarding private conversations with Trump to a friend who was […]
The Contra Costa County Department of Children and Family Services (CFS, or CPS) in California appears to have a problem with the sexual abuse of children. The Epoch Times interviewed whistleblower parents, children, and a mental health professional in the county who say children are being sexually abused within a system that is meant to protect them. In July, a father–son duo, Simon Mendoza Chavez, 64, and Simon Magana Chavez, 31, in the Contra Costa County city of Antioch were arrested on charges of committing multiple crimes during their years-long tenure as foster parents, according to a little-publicized police department […]
Hurricane Dorian gained strength in the Atlantic Wednesday night, and millions of people in Florida were warned to be ready for its impact. “Strengthening is forecast during the next few days, and Dorian is expected to become a major hurricane on Friday, and remain an extremely dangerous hurricane through the weekend,” the National Hurricane Center said Thursday morning. Dorian could be a Category 4 storm when it makes landfall Monday, CBS News weather producer David Parkinson reports. The storm could have maximum sustained winds of 130 mph. Landfall could happen anywhere along Florida’s Atlantic coast, Parkinson reports. The storm rolled over the Virgin […]
San Francisco, a city described in song for its natural beauty, is descending into an abyss of homelessness, the use of sidewalks as toilets and a place you might not want to visit, much less live. The latest, but surely not the last demonstration of insanity, is San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors’ adoption of new “person first” language guidelines meant to “change the public’s perception of criminals.” The words “convicted felon,” “offender,” “convict,” “addict” and “juvenile delinquent” are out. These individuals will henceforth be referred to as a “justice-involved person.” Someone previously called a “criminal” will now be referred to as “a […]
Dozens of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers—many allegedly abused when they were teenagers—testified in a Manhattan courtroom on Aug. 27 after federal prosecutors asked the judge to formally dismiss their case against the now-deceased financier [and alleged child sex trafficker]. The accusers, speaking one after another often through tears and trembling voices, testified about their reactions to Epstein’s suicide and spoke about how they first met the man. Many described how their lives were turned into a spiral of disarray and suffering after they were sexually abused by Epstein, who prosecutors say exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his different residences. […]
Former New York Federal Reserve President Bill Dudley urged his former colleagues on Tuesday not to help President Donald Trump in his trade war against China. He even urged the central bank to consider how its monetary policy might impact the 2020 presidential election. Dudley urged Federal Reserve officials not to lower interest rates as a backstop while the president continues his battle against China. Trump has recently increased tariffs on Chinese goods and has called on the nation’s central bank to sharply lower interest rates to help fight the trade war against China. PRAY WITH US FOR FAIR AND […]
The Trump administration accused the University of Vermont Medical Center on Wednesday of violating federal law by forcing a nurse to participate in an elective abortion. The Health and Human Services Department issued a notice of violation after it investigated the nurse’s complaint from May 2018 and found evidence to support her claim. Officials said the center has 30 days to comply with federal policies or risk losing federal funds. HHS said the Vermont center knew about the nurse’s objections. Yet when she appeared in a medical room one day, a doctor told her, “You’re going to hate me,” because she’d be […]
Faith—properly understood—is not a feeling. Rather, faith is active trust based on evidence. Of course, faith can affect how we feel. For example, my trust in my wife may produce feelings of happiness and gratitude, while mistrust can produce feelings of sadness and betrayal. So faith and feelings are related, but different. Unfortunately, some people base their faith on their feelings. Consequently, the good feelings they get from praying, worshiping, or attending church lead them to conclude their faith is true. In this case, faith is held hostage by feelings. This is extremely dangerous because feelings are fickle—they can change from day […]
A few years ago after my 30-year reunion at the U.S. Air Force Academy, I wrote several articles regarding the changes at our nation’s service academies — changes not for the better. One couldn’t help but be shocked by the lack of discipline, the lowering of standards, and the destruction of traditions that had held officer trainees in good standing for decades, if not centuries. The situation has not gotten any better, and, in many ways, it is getting worse. Hundreds of cadets and graduates reached out, agreeing with my critique. Many wrote clandestinely, including current cadets who were afraid […]
I was praying with my husband recently, asking the Lord for clarity in how to use my voice amidst all the political upheaval and spiritual darkness. The insanity and deception in the high places of our government is growing so quickly, there is the temptation to react quickly in hopes to clarify, deny, or confirm various issues. Especially in social media, the constant flow of political propaganda and liberal agenda confronts me with a call to respond. And yet, if I don’t guard my heart, I can easily fall into the very POLITICAL SPIRIT I am hoping to displace. For […]
More and more parents are stepping out, admitting that their children “identify as transgender” and wanting to do something about it. Schools encourage gender confusion, and doctors reportedly won’t even run preliminary tests if a child asks for life-altering “treatment.” But before you sign your kids up, listen to the real-life stories of people who deeply regret their “transition.” “I am a real, live 22-year-old woman, with a scarred chest and a broken voice, and five o’clock shadow because I couldn’t face the idea of growing up to be a woman, that’s my reality,” admitted Cari Stella in a deeply personal […]
From a helicopter, Greenland’s brilliant white ice and dark mountains make the desolation seem to go on forever. And the few people who live here – its whole population wouldn’t fill a football stadium – are poor, with a high rate of substance abuse and suicide. One scientist called it the “end of the planet.” When U.S. President Donald Trump floated the idea of buying Greenland, it was met with derision, seen as an awkward and inappropriate approach of an erstwhile ally. But it might also be an Aladdin’s Cave of oil, natural gas and rare earth minerals just waiting to be […]
(From IFA Staff: I feel like someone needs to hear this song today. Whatever battle you are fighting, God is there in the middle of the storm!)
Drone footage released by the Border Patrol over the weekend shows miles of a “new border wall system” going up at a location in Arizona near where illegal immigrants were seen streaming into America years ago. The construction is taking place near San Luis and is being carried out with the help of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Illegal border crossings in San Luis, AZ, in 2005 versus the same location today: In 2005, 10’ landing mat failed to impede and deny illegal entries. Today, CBP has a triple layered enforcement zone which includes an 18’ bollard wall. pic.twitter.com/DSO5p0h75M — CBP (@CBP) […]

On the threshold of my 70th birthday alongside of my 50th spiritual birthday, I sing with believers worldwide celebrating God’s “Amazing Grace.” “Through many dangers, toils and snares we have already come. T’was grace that brought us safe thus far and grace will lead us home.” When we genuinely repent and put our total trust in Jesus Christ and His finished work on the Cross, the conversion experience supernaturally transitions us from death to life, all sins are forgiven, we’re adopted into God’s forever family, declared justified (just as if we’ve never sinned!) and are catapulted into the sanctifying process […]
A deal is all but sealed with Japan. President Donald Trump confirming, “it’s a very big transaction and we’ve agreed in principle,” while speaking beside Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in France after a meeting at the G-7 summit. Trump said the prime minister agreed to purchase some of U.S. farmers’ corn, blaming China for the excess product on farmers’ hands. He expects the billion-dollar deal to be sealed by the time the U.N. General Assembly meets in mid-September. “This is a tremendous deal for the United States, really a tremendous deal for our farmers and agriculture,” along with e-commerce, per the president. Abe called the […]
[As students return to classrooms across the nation, a number of them may encounter a fellow student who is now undergoing hormone therapy or has undergone surgery as part of a transgender process. Some now will use a different name to “validate” their feelings–and expect students to participate in the charade by using the new moniker. Is John now Jane? Is Mr. Smith now Mx. Smith? Not only is it dangerous and abusive for the student who is being led to untested therapies for gender transitioning, but the fellow students in their class are also being forced to accept, laud […]
[It’s official. The U.S. is a pro-life nation, according to a joint letter from U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar. And this Administration is taking a stand for life at the UN global health summit. No longer will the U.S. be the biggest exporter of abortion to other countries!] The U.S. Government has reached out to foreign capitals to request support for U.S. pro-life efforts at the United Nations. Such a high-level pro-life effort by a U.S. administration is unprecedented. [This is a huge praise–join us in thanking God for this […]
This commentary was shared by Alyssa R. Alghren on Facebook concerning her observations about her generation and their rising misconceptions of socialism. “I’m sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my news-feed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of Democratic candidates calling for policies to “fix” the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around. I see people talking freely, working on their Mac-book’s, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on […]
My husband Scott and I recently had the privilege of vacationing at the Big Island of Hawaii. We hiked to breathtaking waterfalls, inside a volcano, and to one of only four green sand beaches in the world. We ate tasty Hawaiian food and watched the sunset while swimming in the cerulean ocean. But as beautiful as these sites were, they pale in comparison to the man I saw carrying a large wooden cross over his shoulder as he hiked up a hill. Scott and I were running late and several miles away from an exclusive golf course. I wanted to […]
This letter to a college freshman was written by Chelsen Vicari of the Institute on Religion & Democracy. The warnings and advice are suitable for high school students as well. As parents and grandparents, it is such a blessing when a younger Christian speaks life into our kids’ lives. Consider sharing this with the college and high school students you know. Dear College Freshman, I wanted to send you a brief note of encouragement as you begin your academic journey. The start of college is a bit overwhelming at times, at least it was for me. Maybe you are feeling a little anxious. […]
A recent bombing at an Afghan wedding and near-daily attacks on churches in Northern Ireland have contributed to one of the deadliest years for religious folk in recent memory. U.S. officials say it’s not an abstract human rights issue but a foreign policy concern for the nation. “Advancing religious freedom is a foreign policy priority for this administration, and we remain committed to promoting and protecting religious freedom for all groups,” a staffer for Sam Brownback, U.S. ambassador at large for international religious freedom, said Thursday. Pray for U.S. government officials to do what is right with our prayer guide: […]
Onetime employees of the University of Phoenix say the for-profit company conducted a potentially multi-billion dollar fraud on taxpayers by deliberately submitting false records to the federal government to enroll unqualified students and cash in on federal student loans. Few single companies have the potential impact on the federal budget as the University of Phoenix (UOP). Attendees owed $36 billion in student loans, according to a 2015 Brookings Institute study. Only 28% of UOP borrowers have “paid at least one dollar of the principal balance on their federal loans within three years of leaving school,” according to the Department of […]
Home DNA testing kits are now affordable and commonplace and offer to provide you with detailed information on your family ancestry or a breakdown of your genetics. It also means there’s a number of private companies who now hold large databases of genetic data, and the FBI has gained access to one of the most popular. As BuzzFeed reports, this week FamilyTreeDNA confirmed that it is working with the FBI and allowing local law enforcement access to its genealogy database. The number of DNA profiles stored in that database is thought to total over a million. There are a number of active cases […]
A local news report revealed that the state of New Jersey awarded $3.8 million in financial aid to illegal immigrants during the 2018-2019 school year. According to a report from NJ.com, the state of New Jersey gave $3.8 million in financial aid to 749 illegal immigrant students in the last academic year. More than a quarter of the funding went to 328 illegal immigrants that attend Rutgers University. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a law last year that allowed illegal immigrants to apply for financial aid. Prior to the signing, illegal immigrants were permitted to apply to pay in-state tuition at […]
California’s homeless epidemic is hitting record levels. Many have turned to faith-based groups for help, but despite those organizations’ best efforts, more are turning up in need of assistance. “What you are seeing is a row of tents,” said Officer Deon Joseph of the Los Angeles Police Department. Those rows make up “skid row,” a 50-block area with the country’s largest homeless population that’s only continuing to grow. “California is experiencing a massive spike in its rodent population that started being detected two years ago but has accelerated in the last 12 months,” said Carl DeMaio, Chairman of Reform California. […]
The Republican Party top brass is all in a dither. The “diversity” of the Republican congressional delegation is shrinking. The recently announced retirement of Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) will leave only one black Republican in the Senate and zero in the House. The GOP currently has only 13 women serving in the House of Representatives (there are 184 men), and this is sending the Republican hierarchy into panic mode. If trying to match the Democratic Party in “minority” candidates is a top priority, then the GOP is, as usual, way out of touch with its base. The base cares about principles, not […]
I may have the keys to open voting machines used in states across the country, and that is not a good thing. I am not an election official. I am not a voting machine expert, operator, or otherwise affiliated with any federal, state or local government agency. I am simply an investigative journalist who, upon learning that the types of keys used for these machines are apparently widely available for purchase on the Internet, was prudent enough to ask to take a few keys home as souvenirs from my recent trip to the DEF CON 27 Hacking Conference in Las Vegas. JOIN […]
Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the Russian military on Friday to work out a quid pro quo response after the test of a new U.S. missile banned under a now-defunct arms treaty. In Sunday’s test, a modified ground-launched version of a Navy Tomahawk cruise missile accurately struck its target more than 500 kilometers (310 miles) away. The test came after the U.S. and Russia withdrew from the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. Pray about the ongoing, strained relations between the U.S. and Russia with our special report prayer guide. The U.S. said it withdrew from the treaty due to […]
WHAT IF A MASSIVE MORAL OUTCRY EMERGES FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? In the 1992 landmark case Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the US Supreme Court had an opportunity to reverse Roe v. Wade, and its companion Doe v Bolton. In conference the justices voted 5-4 to overturn Roe and Doe, but at the 11th hour before the opinion was released a centrist coalition of moderate judges – including Justice Kennedy who switched his vote – was formed to write a compromise that would weaken the Roe and Doe decisions, but still leave abortion as the law of the land. WHAT MIGHT […]
President Trump declared this week that he is “the chosen one” to take on Communist China. He was specifically addressing the ongoing effort to negotiate a trade deal that would remedy longstanding predatory Chinese practices, theft of our intellectual property, currency manipulation, etc. Donald Trump has, moreover, chosen to effect far more sweeping, fundamental and urgently needed course-corrections with regard to U.S. policy towards the PRC. For example, in response to various threat vectors being simultaneously pursued by Xi Jinping’s Chinese Communist Party, the President has: adopted a robust anti-China national security strategy; started modernizing our nuclear deterrent; committed to […]
Yesterday we found a wonderful interview with Todd Starnes and Franklin Graham about the growing trend in America of mandating LGBTQ inclusive lessons in all school subjects. The interview ended with Graham offering some insightful comments also about the various Christian celebrities who have recently publicly left the Church. We tried to find the video on YouTube to share and found that it had been removed because it violated YouTube community standards. You can watch an excerpt below though. Where did we find it? Right Wing Watch, an arm of People for the American Way, which is a self-described communist […]
America’s plan to catch China in the race to deploy super-fast hypersonic weapons may begin in college classrooms. Academic leaders, lawmakers, and military and intelligence officials say Washington needs to take a harder look at the number of Chinese who come to the U.S. to study engineering, aeronautics, astronautics, quantum mechanics and other fields that have direct connections to national security. The massive influx of Chinese students in recent years, they say, has led directly to Beijing’s advantage in the development of hypersonics and other cutting-edge technology — though U.S. officials say privately that it’s difficult, if not impossible, to […]
In a recent Facebook post, I wanted to address the ongoing divide between those who support President Trump’s leadership and those who do not. Given his unorthodox style and sometimes offensive Twitter commentary, I asked how believers were dealing with this. How were they seeing God at work? I asked them to share their personal observations and what suggestions they may have in bringing the body of Christ together concerning God’s purposes in this divisive season. There were 387 comments shared, most of them positive. Here are but a few of the comments that reveal, not only how other Christians […]
From the Supreme Court Press Office: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg today completed a three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. The focused radiation treatment began on August 5 and was administered on an outpatient basis to treat a tumor on her pancreas. The abnormality was first detected after a routine blood test in early July, and a biopsy performed on July 31 at Sloan Kettering confirmed a localized malignant tumor. As part of her treatment, a bile duct stent was placed. The Justice tolerated treatment well. She cancelled her annual […]
According to international watchdog CTBTO, the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization, two of Russia’s nuclear monitoring stations went dark two days after a mysterious missile test explosion on August 8 that was originally portrayed as a non-nuclear incident. Adding to the uneasy parallels with the infamous Chernobyl incident, doctors at a Russian hospital complained on Sunday they were not informed that casualties from the explosion had been exposed to radiation. CTBTO chief Lassina Zerbo told the Wall Street Journal on Sunday that two days after the missile explosion, nuclear monitoring stations in Kirov and Dubna allegedly suffered “communication and network issues” that prevented them […]
Planned Parenthood’s newly released annual report states the organization performed 11,373 more abortions in the year 2017-2018 than the previous year, and it also took in $1.67 billion in revenue. The nation’s largest abortion provider says it performed 332,757 abortions in the past year — 11,373 more than the 321,384 the group performed in the year of 2016-2017. The number of abortions performed contrasts sharply with the number of adoption referrals — 2,831. Pray for Life with our bookmark-style prayer guide: Upholding LIFE in Prayer Planned Parenthood also appears to be going against the tide of the nation when it comes to abortions. The Centers […]
When I began writing on my Enliven Blog ten years ago, I was spiritually dry and recovering from burnout. Yet now, as I write this on my blog’s tenth anniversary, I look back in amazement at what can only be a move of the Holy Spirit. So, if you can relate to feeling weary; if you sometimes wonder how you can complete the work God has called you to, be encouraged. Your Father wants you to know that He is unfailing. There is never any moment you where cannot draw life from Him! And if you have experienced spiritual dryness, […]
Radio host and PragerU President Dennis Prager said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends” that freedom of speech is being threatened by Google, pointing out content from his own platform that has repeatedly been restricted by YouTube. In a new Wall Street Journal column, Prager wrote that a video called “The Charlottesville Lie,” from CNN’s Steve Cortes, was quickly moved to the “restricted list” on Monday just hours after it was posted. “This happened two weeks after a Senate hearing at which a Google representative swore under oath that the company doesn’t censor based on political views,” he wrote. Prager said Wednesday that the video […]

Ashley Bratcher, star of the hit pro-life movie Unplanned, has launched a pro-life scholarship for pregnant women to “empower mothers who chose life to continue their educations.” CONTINUE PRAYING FOR UNPLANNED AND PRO-LIFE EFFORTS. DOWNLOAD OUR PRAYER GUIDE FOR GREAT SCRIPTURAL PRAYER POINTS. The fund plans to offer expecting women a $5,000 scholarship for education costs. “While plans may shift when the unexpected happens, it doesn’t mean that dreams need to stop completely,” reads the website’s main page. “Inspired by her role as Abby Johnson in the movie ‘Unplanned,’ Ashley Bratcher is partnering with Heartbeat International, the largest pregnancy help network […]
Pressure on Mexico by the Trump Administration led to a decline in migrants seeking asylum at the US Southern Border in the month of June, but reports out of South America point to an increasing number of migrants from around the world continuing to make their way north. This large mass of asylum seekers en route to the US come from countries much further away than Central America, and before they get to the United States, they have to first make the treacherous trek through the Darien Jungle. STAY IN PRAYER FOR THOSE WORKING ON THE FRONT LINES FOR IMMIGRATION. […]
It was a horrible sermon, one no family should ever have to hear. It was bad enough they had just laid their young son to rest in a nearby grave; today they listened as the minister told the congregation of the flames that engulfed the young Stephen as he languished in hell. Stephen had played hooky from school and while horsing around, drowned in a nearby pond. The Mann family held their dignity throughout the service, but forever the course of history was changed by the minister’s words. Stephen’s brother, Horace Mann, never forgave the preacher and later rejected the […]
Left-wing and establishment conservative billionaires are teaming up to censor the Internet. Organizations established by left-winger George Soros and libertarian Charles Koch have been working together on a key priority of globalist neoliberals and neoconservatives: censorship of the Internet. Last year, the Charles Koch Institute pledged its support for the “After Charlottesville Project,” an initiative organized by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) aimed at combating “online extremism.” Sponsors of the initiative include Comcast, NBC Universal, the Kresge Foundation, and the George Soros Charitable Foundation. PRAY WITH US ABOUT THE MEDIA CENSORSHIP. DOWNLOAD OUR SPECIAL REPORT AND PRAY. Other groups involved in […]
The Trump administration announced on Aug. 21 a new rule that replaces the Flores agreement, which has long guided how long families of immigrants can be held after crossing into the United States. The will “will allow for termination of” the agreement, the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement, allowing the department and the Health and Human Services agency “to respond to significant statutory and operational changes that have occurred since the [Flores agreement] has been in place, including dramatic increases in the numbers of unaccompanied children and family units crossing into the United States.” CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THOSE […]
On May 17, 2019, IFA hosted a special Friday prayer conference call featuring Abby Johnson, who was featured in the movie Unplanned and is the founder of And Then There Were None, a ministry that helps abortion workers leave the industry. During that call, we prayed specifically for God to bless the work of And Then There Were None and to help people who left Planned Parenthood. On Friday, a jury ordered Planned Parenthood to pay $3 million in damages to Mayra Rodriquez, who they determined had been wrongfully terminated by the abortion giant. This is a DIRECT ANSWER TO […]
Earlier this year, three Friday Prayer Conference Calls featured Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman, producers of the movie Unplanned. These prayer times were powerful and uplifting. One of the things that we repeatedly prayed for was wide distribution of the movie. We specifically prayed for great DVD sales. On Monday, Unplanned became the overall best-selling DVD on Amazon!! This is a direct answer to our prayers! (It has since dropped to #5 overall, but is still #1 for Drama DVDs.) Keep praying that the hopeful and truthful message of the movie would be used to change hearts and minds. If […]
Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. (Matthew 28:19-20 NIV) Believers have been given a clear commission to preach the Kingdom of God, disciple nations, and demonstrate the power of God wherever we are. Unfortunately, given the rise of godless legislation that is aimed at crippling our call and silencing our witness, we must engage more strategically within our own community if our voices are to be heard and the cause of Christ to advance. The […]
Left-wing opponents of an impartial and independent judiciary have picked another target: appeals court nominee Steven Menashi. It’s one thing to be honest about a nominee’s record, but disagree about whether he belongs on the bench. The attacks begun on Menashi, however, amount to nothing more than dishonest smears. Menashi, whose Jewish family came to the United States from Iran, received his law degree from Stanford before clerking first for U.S. Circuit Judge Douglas Ginsburg and then for Justice Samuel Alito. He became a partner at one of America’s premier law firms and has taught at two prestigious law schools. […]
LGBT history must now be taught in Illinois public schools, according to a recently passed law. Governor J.B. Pritzker signed the legislation on Friday, requiring public schools in the Midwestern state to teach students about the historical contributions of LBGT persons in U.S. history. Supporters of the law insist the curriculum will curb bullying against students who identify as LGBT. The law also requires that the state Board of Education must provide a list of textbooks authorized for purchase under the law every year. Our children need prayer, as the schools have become the proving ground for experiments in radical sexuality. Download […]
One of my guilty pleasures is taking online personality quizzes and reading articles about personality types and the theories about what motivates people in each category. I’ve taken countless quizzes, but one common theme in all of them is that I have a deep desire to feel loved and appreciated by others. This quality, both in myself and in other people, often has a tendency to cause a pattern of people-pleasing. In best-case scenarios, the craving for love can lead to sincere empathy for others. But unfortunately it can also lead to behaviors that don’t always line up with Jesus’ teachings. I’ve […]
We hope you enjoy this excerpt from our latest devotional series, It’s All About the Blood of Christ. Friend of IFA Patsy Taylor outlines the vital importance of the blood of Christ to intercession and Christian living in 14 short devotionals, delivered to your email inbox daily. The 1998 “National Day of Prayer” proved to be very significant for me. Though I had been a Christian for more than 50 years and was a pastor’s wife with a Bible School background, I realized that my own prayer life was in need of major adjustment, so I began seeking the Lord.

A proposed California schools curriculum includes anti-Israel programming and also aims to teach students a one-sided view of police officers and police brutality. The Daily Caller reports “the Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, proposed by the California Department of Education, includes anti-Israel bias and aims to teach students about the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, a Palestinian-led anti-Israel initiative. The curriculum also has students study issues of police brutality and asks teachers to find incidents of bias by police in their own communities. The “#BlackLivesMatter and Social Change” portion of the curriculum is aimed at grades 9–12, according to the proposed curriculum reviewed […]
In 2012, Jim Turley, current president of the Boy Scouts of America, was the first member of the Executive Board to call for inviting boys struggling or identifying as homosexuals to become part of the program. Shortly thereafter, Boy Scouts executives caved to LGBTQ persistent pressure to be “gay affirming” and overhauled the over 100-year-old organization’s mission to include anyone endorsing and celebrating a lifestyle sacred scripture calls “moral impurity, degrading, shameless, indecent and unnatural” (Romans 1:24–27). This is not bigotry – it is Bible. It may not be politically correct but it is fidelity to God’s design for men […]
(From IFA Staff: We are seeing increasing attacks on ministry leaders and their families. Will you pray for Intercessors for America, our staff, and our families? We value the prayer covering of our intercessors and appreciate each one of you.) With kingdom leaders like Josh Harris and Marty Sampson either walking away from or questioning their Christian faith in recent weeks, master’s-level practitioner Tracy Daniels warns others that the enemy is accelerating his attack on their ministry through their mental health. Depression, anxiety and what Daniels calls “pastoral PTSD” have become all too common for kingdom leaders. But they can […]
Vice President Pence said during an event hosted by a Christian conservative advocacy group that he handles online criticism through prayer and by “extending grace.” “No. 1 is spend more time on your knees than on the internet,” Pence said of how he handles critics during a “fireside chat” at an Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) event. “As a Christian believer, we’re charged to pray for our loved ones but also pray for our enemies. You have lots of opportunities in politics to do that,” Pence told ADF CEO Michael Farris. “Forgiveness is a great gift, and my wife and I […]
The Trump administration has proposed a rule which protects faith-based organizations that contract with the federal government by allowing them to make employment decisions consistent with their sincerely held religious beliefs. The proposed rule by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs ensures that conscience and religious freedom are given the broadest protection permitted by law. The proposed rule is posted and open for public comment for 30 days. “Today’s proposed rule helps to ensure the civil rights of religious employers are protected,” said Acting U.S. Secretary of Labor Patrick Pizzella. “As people of faith with deeply held religious […]
The Planned Parenthood abortion business announced today it will officially withdraw from the Title X program — costing it $60 million in taxpayer funds because it refuses to follow a new Trump administration rule that requires it to segment out its abortion business from legitimate health care if it wants federal funding under the program. Because the abortion giant is withdrawing from Title X, the $60 million in taxpayer dollars it received annually can be redistributed to groups that engage in legitimate women’s health care. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals late Friday rejected a request from more than […]
Ok I’m saying it. Because it’s too important not to. What is happening in Christianity? More and more of our outspoken leaders or influencers who were once “faces” of the faith are falling away. And at the same time they are being very vocal and bold about it. Shockingly they still want to influence others (for what purpose?) as they announce that they are leaving the faith. I’ll state my conclusion, then I’ll state some rebuttals to statements I’ve read by some of them. Firstly, I never judge people outside of my faith. Even if they hate religion or Christianity. […]
Attorney General William Barr replaced acting Bureau of Prisons Director Hugh Hurwitz Monday, days after Jeffrey Epstein died in federal custody. “I have asked Mr. Hurwitz to return to his responsibilities as assistant director of BOP’s reentry services division, where he will work closely with me in overseeing the implementation of one of the Department’s highest priorities, the First Step Act,” Barr said in a statement. Barr replaced Hurwitz with former BOP Director Kathleen Hawk Sawyer, who served as bureau director from 1992 to 2003. Monday’s appointment is the second time Barr has selected Sawyer to lead the BOP — […]
North Carolina’s largest sanctuary county released a previously deported illegal alien accused of rape and child sex crimes, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency reveals. Oscar Pacheco-Leonardo, a 33-year-old illegal alien from Honduras, was arrested almost two months ago by the Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, Sheriff’s Office for first-degree rape and child sex crimes. After his arrest, ICE officials said they placed a detainer on Pacheco-Leonardo, requesting that he be turned over to the agency before being released from local custody. Mecklenburg’s sanctuary county policy, however, ensured that the sheriff’s office release the illegal alien from their custody, allowing him […]
It is only when we look at the policies, rulings, and legislation that President Trump and his administration have initiated on behalf of biblical conservative values, that believers can rightly discern the effectiveness and impact of the White House. Here are TEN REASONS, along with corroborating reports, why evangelical Christians can support this administration as they seek to uphold many of the values we hold most dear. We hope you not only study these for yourself, but SHARE them with those who still struggle with this President’s agenda or actions. (Hyperlinks to original articles are embedded in text.) 1-THIS ADMINISTRATION […]
At least 13 arrests have been made in the most recent confrontation with Antifa in Portland, Oregon, the Portland police confirmed on Aug. 17. Right-wing groups from across the country had converged on Portland to protest Antifa and bring attention to its terrorist-like activities. Antifa is a far-left group whose members have made Portland a stronghold and often engage in protests that eventually turn violent. President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter today that major “consideration is being given to naming Antifa an ‘organization of terror.’” PRAY WITH US ABOUT THE TERROR ACTIVITY IN OUR NATION, ONE OF WHICH IS ANTIFA.

A new law in South Dakota now requires all public schools across the state to feature the “In God We Trust” motto on display. Students returning to school this fall will be greeted by the message, which supporters say is meant to “inspire patriotism.” Gov. Kristi Noem signed the law in March, and it went into effect this month. The law requires that the message is prominently displayed in all 149 South Dakota school districts on the first day of classes this year. “Some have plaques, others have it painted on the wall, maybe in a mural setting,” Associated School Boards of South […]
The US Supreme Court announced [last] Tuesday it will take up the case involving a Michigan Christian funeral home’s objection to an employee’s decision to transition to a different sex. The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) reports the case could bring a definitive ruling on the future rights of faith-based businesses and ministries. At issue is whether the 1964 federal Civil Rights law that prohibits employment discrimination based on race and religion also applies to sexual orientation and gender identity.

Members of China’s paramilitary People’s Armed Police marched and practiced crowd control tactics at a sports complex in Shenzhen across from Hong Kong in what some interpreted as a threat against pro-democracy protesters in the semi-autonomous territory. The sound of marching boots and synchronized shouts echoed from the grounds on Friday. Officers in green camouflage stood guard at closed entrances. A stadium security guard said “it wasn’t clear” when the paramilitary police would leave the grounds. Chinese state media have only said that the Shenzhen exercises were planned earlier and were not directly related to the unrest in Hong Kong, […]
President Trump has repeatedly promised that “America will never be a socialist country.” Since Franklin Roosevelt began expanding government in the 1930s, the United States has increasingly adopted big-state policies associated with socialism. We may not be at the stage Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., would advocate, but more millennials appear to favor a system under which they have never lived. Free stuff is appealing until one realizes its costs. In an attempt to reach Generation Z — those in their teens and 20s — a new organization is starting this month to combat socialism’s appeal. It’s called “Young Americans Against Socialism,” according to its site, a […]
After a new Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rule and victories in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals against Planned Parenthood, President Trump is set to cut $60 million dollars in taxpayer funding from the abortion giant’s budget. Today on Jay Sekulow Live, we discussed a big victory for life, as according to HHS, Monday, August 19th is the first deadline for Title X recipients to provide “assurance and action plan documenting steps to come into compliance” with the new rule stripping abortion providers of Title X funding.

Israel’s denial of entry to Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who both support the BDS campaign, is unsurprising given their shared desire to “tear down” the Jewish state as “BDS activists,” said Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) in a Friday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. “I’m certainly not in the least bit surprised by it,” said Zeldin. “If you want to tear down another country, you shouldn’t be surprised that you’re not welcomed with open arms in that country, [and] that you may not be welcomed at all in that country.” Zeldin added, “Israel has a policy […]
Democrats are moving closer and closer to taking real steps to impeach President Donald Trump, which has prompted pushback from those close to the president during the August recess. Despite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s reluctance to push for impeachment, there are currently 126 Democrats who support impeachment or an impeachment inquiry, compared to the 109 Democrats who don’t support impeachment or impeachment inquiry, yet. Pelosi has said she believes Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach him from office because he thinks it will help him fire up his base.
