If you believe that prayer is vitally needed in the church and in America today, and if you are willing to pray to the Triune God daily for national revival, please go to my new Prayer for Revival page on Facebook. This page is to encourage us to pray and to trust God for the results, for “the effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”
This is not a page for politics or personal attacks. It’s all about prayer and revival. I’ll regularly post a Scripture verse, an inspirational quote, or even an update to encourage us. You are encouraged to do the same, but please keep your contributions within the bounds of this community’s purpose. As the administrator, I reserve the right to delete or edit as I see fit.
And remember that although it would be great if lots of people joined us and prayed, the Lord can do much with very little. As He said, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”

As usual, tyranny comes disguised as “civil rights.”
The latest exhibit of this general rule is President Obama’s directive that seeks to force a transgender bathroom, locker room and dorm policy on the entire nation, starting with schoolchildren. Many of us are taken aback by this news, but we really shouldn’t be. The order is merely the latest incarnation of a long line of social engineering. The goal, as is always the case with such movements, is to remake humanity. What the people behind this latest version won’t tell you is that their project requires each and every one of us to deny our own humanity.

I had no untapped, unanswered yearnings. All was well in the state of Denmark. And then it wasn’t.
On Sunday Josh Moody was preaching from Psalm 14 about the existence of God. Josh mentioned that as bad as things seem in America right now, revival is still possible because God is God.
I agree and have been thinking that the farther the nation goes into irrationality (such as transgender bathroom policy, the redefinition of marriage, and other follies), the more likely it becomes that the truth becomes attractive. People who are morally and spiritually adrift may decide they need an anchor after all. They need the gospel.
I’m going to start praying daily for repentance and revival in the church and in society, trusting our Triune God for the results. He’s the only One who can do it. Who’s with me?
We shouldn’t be surprised by the bathroom controversy. Feelings, not facts, reign supreme. When all standards are out the window, who’s to say who’s male and who’s female?
Barack Obama keeps telling us we’ve never had it so good, but–to cite just one piece of relevant economic data–two-thirds of Americans now say they would have trouble coming up with a mere $1,000 in an emergency. No wonder so many people, on the left and on the right, are mad.
There are no arguments or facts that you can give a Trump supporter that will get him to change his mind.
If you bring up the arguments of critics, he’ll say they’re part of “the establishment.”
If you say that Trump is a liar, a buffoon, a misogynist, a bully, a conspiracy monger, or an ignoramus, he’ll say that Trump is “telling it like it is.”
If you say Trump is crooked, he’ll say Hillary is worse.
If you say Trump funded Hillary, he’ll say he was just being a shrewd businessman.
If you say there are other businessmen in the race who don’t have the baggage, he’ll say only Trump can win.
If you say there are more important things than “winning”–such as integrity, principles, and trustworthiness–he’ll say that you want Hillary to win.
If you say you want no part of Trump or Hillary, then he’ll say you’re wasting your vote.
If you say you’re going to vote for a third-party or write-in candidate, he’ll say that you’re really voting for Hillary.
I could go on, but why? Trump supporters cannot be swayed. They say they have reasons, but when you reason with them, you find out they just want to vote for Trump.
Save your breath. Time is a terrible thing to waste.

Ask a progressive how much “the rich” should pay in taxes to meet their “fair share” obligation, and the answer will always be “more.”
It’s probably too late for conservatives to launch a viable third-party candidacy. But is it too late to support the “third party” candidate already in the race–the Libertarian Gary Johnson, who served two terms as the Republican governor of New Mexico? Though far from perfect (he’s considering the “moderate” William Weld as VP), surely Johnson is light years ahead of the alternatives.
