Thank You, President Trump!

Last night, at the State of the Union address, I truly praised Jesus that President Trump made such a hard stance against the new abortion laws that have been passed in states such as New York and Virginia.

The people who have created these laws are wicked; but truly, all of us have fallen short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23). May those behind these laws repent, turn to Jesus Christ as their Savior, and have their eyes opened to the evil they are propagating. It is the only way this torn-apart country can ever have even a semblance of unity again.

“…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
(2 Chronicles 7:14, NIV)

Taking Compassionate Action: Remembering Dolores O’riordan of The Cranberries

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of Dolores O’Riordan’s death. She was the lead singer of a rock band from the 90’s called The Cranberries. There is one song that The Cranberries wrote that I feel is very relevant to our current social climate and all that is happening in Northern Nigeria. It is called “Zombie.” Read these lyrics:

“Another head hangs lowly
Child is slowly taken
And the violence, caused such silence
Who are we mistaken?
But you see, it’s not me,
It’s not my family
In your head, in your head, they are fighting
With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are crying
… Another mother’s breaking
Heart is taking over
When the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken…”

It is hard to care for those whose pain seems out of sight, out of mind. While The Cranberries are talking about another war, it is very fitting for what is going on in Nigeria—a place that, for the most part, people don’t truly care hearing about.

Dolores left an amazing legacy, one that causes us to take compassionate action. It is my Hope that she knew Jesus (she was cited as being Catholic), and that those who follow her footsteps would find Christ as well.

May we love like Jesus Loved—sacrificially, even when it is inconvenient. And even when the people we are to love live far, far away.


Do you know Jesus?

No matter who you are—King or beggar, celebrity or the marginalized, you matter to God. So much, in fact, that He died for you. Learn more about Jesus, and why He died for you, here.

Please pray for (find the prayer sheet here)…

  • The celebrities of this world, that they would be humbled and saved by Christ.
  • The Chibok Girls, and Leah Sharibu.
  • That more people would seek Jesus and become an advocate for those who need to be heard, supported, and loved.

Please pray: Christians & Suicide

I am asking for urgent prayer for a young woman I know of. She attempted suicide this morning by overdosing on pills, but was found in time and is now in a psych ward.

She and her family go to a church I know of in a town close to mine. Sadly, this type of thing is not uncommon. Pastor Andrew Stoecklein committed suicide in August of 2018, and I also know of a young man from a church I went to who took his life as well a few years ago. What causes these people to want to end their lives?

I cannot sit here and say that I fully know. What I do know is this: mental illness is real, and so is spiritual warfare. As you pray today for this young lady, please pray for those Christians in general who are struggling with mental illness and battles from the enemy. Pray that the stigma of mental illness in Christian circles would be removed, and that those struggling with such deep sorrow and thoughts of suicide would find help and rest in the arms of Christ, in the arms of fellow brothers and sisters, and in the help of medical professionals.

With Love,
