Father, we could never thank our military men and women enough for their courageous service and sacrifice to our country and its people. Yet, as we lift up our voices to express gratefulness and honor to these military troops both from the past and present. Show us ways in our communities, churches, and families to thank and love them better. Keep and protect these heroes and their families, in the powerful name of Jesus.

Martian Luther King Jr-Statue DCMartin Luther King, Jr. Day is a United States federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The MLK day is observed on the third Monday of January each year, which is around the time of Martin Luthor King’s birthday, January 15. Martin Luther King was born in 1929 and died in 1968.

King was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the civil rights movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. His famous “I have a dream” speech was given on August 28, 1963, marking 2013 as the 50th Anniversary of his speech.

The role of pastor may be one of the most overlooked sides of Dr. King, but it was one of the most important aspects of who he was.

Professor LEWIS BALDWIN (Professor of Religious Studies and Director of African American Studies, Vanderbilt University) describes Dr. King as follows: “Many labels were attached to him during his lifetime. He was called a civil rights activist; he was called a social activist, a social change agent, a world figure. But I think he thought of himself first and foremost as a preacher, as a Christian pastor.”

Life’s Journey

By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Hebrews 11:8-10

Life is a journey with different levels of maturity, choices, direction, and destinations.

Where are you going? Are you being guided, or are you in control of your own fate? Jesus talking about the rulers of the day, the Pharisees described in Matthew 15:14 as: “…blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” Are you on a clear path?

The journey of life has many obstacles, bumps, turns, ups and downs. Do you know where your going? Proverbs 4:26 tells us to: “Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.” There are a multitude of decisions to be made; are you on the right path? God has promised to show us the way. In Psalm 16:11 we read: “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

God has a wonderful journey in store for you. Seek His way; trust in Him, and He has promised to direct you! “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5 & 6)

Prayer

Veterans_Day-PeaceVeterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is usually observed on November 11. The holiday was first known as “Armistice Day,” to honor veterans of World War I. But, after World War II the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans’ service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word, “Armistice,” and inserting in its place the word, “Veterans.” This is a holiday honoring all veterans that have served in our country’s armed forces to uphold peace in our land, and throughout the world.

 God’s Peace

 As servants in God’s army, we are called to be ambassadors of His peace. Jesus said in John 14:27: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Romans 5:1 describes the peace we have in Christ:

“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The prayer, “Lord Make Me an Instrument of Thy Peace,” is attributed to the13th-century friar, Francis of Assisi. Let us pray:

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

Amen.

The 57th Annual National Day of Prayer will take place Thursday, May 1, 2008. The theme for this year is “Prayer! America’s Strength and Shield” and is based on the verse from Psalm 28:7, which states:

The Lord is my strength and shield; my heart trusts in Him and I am helped.

National days of prayer are a rich tradition in the United States. The first call to prayer came in 1775 when the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming the nation. In 1952, President Truman signed a joint resolution by Congress declaring an annual national day of prayer. Then, in 1988, the Truman law was amended, permanently establishing the first Thursday of May as the National Day of Prayer. Our country has been uniting in prayer on that day ever since.

The main way that you can become involved is to pray for our nation on Thursday, May 1, 2008.

Some suggested areas that you might begin with as you pray for our nation are:

Pray for those who are currently serving in public office: federal; state; and local:

President, Vice President and Cabinet members
U.S. Congress members
U.S. Supreme Court, Judges
State and local officials

November Election:

Now, with the nation counting down to the November presidential election, pray for God’s guidance and direction for our nation.

Pray for all branches of the Armed Forces:

Pray for our service personnel as they continue to serve faithfully, safeguarding the causes of freedom and democracy. Pray for their efforts to be effective and beneficial in Iraq and all parts of the world. Pray for safety and protection for each one, asking God to intervene in every situation where there is danger, and potential for loss of life.

One Nation Under God:

Pray for our nation, that it would move closer and closer to a country “Under God,” not further away. There are movements in our land, under the banner of “Separation of Church and State,” that would like to remove any acknowledgments of God, anywhere in our land and society.

Thank God for the many freedoms we have to worship Him!

Dr. Ravi Zacharias is this years Honorary Chairman. He encourages us to join him in praying for America:

Holy Father, in a world where so many are hungry,
You have given us food in abundance;

In a world where so many are hurting,
You offer to bind up our wounds;

In a world where so many are lonely,
You offer friendship to every heart;

In a world longing for peace,
You offer hope.

Yet, we are so stubborn and resistant.
Have mercy upon us, Lord.

Our nation is at a crossroads this year;
we look to you to be our strength and shield.

Please give us the guidance to elect one who will honor you
and to respond to the wisdom from above
so that our hope may be renewed and our blessings be treasured.

In God’s holy name.

We hope that this day of prayer would be a blessing to you as you join our staff in praying for our nation. May it impact your life and may praying for our nation move from a one-day event to a lifetime endeavor – to God’s glory and praise!
