This week President Donald J. Trump’s SOTU address glorified God, encouraged America, and gave honor to whom honor is due.
The next day, the National Prayer Services activities kicked off.
At the nation's 68th National Prayer Breakfast, yesterday.
The president was joined by over 3,500 participants.
Mr. Trump, U.S. House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and others spoke.
CeCe Winans sang. The bipartisan Congressional Prayer Caucus (who hosted the event) opened with worship music and prayers.
In the keynote address, conservative author Arthur Brooks encouraged biblical love amid a nationwide "crisis of contempt and polarization," reminding attendees that Jesus ordered his followers to love — not just tolerate — enemies.
Afterward, in a moment of heart-wrenching transparency, President Trump revealed the challenges of embracing agape love, by declaring "I’m trying."
For a brief political hiatus, all were prayerful. What a blessing.
My February week of prayer in Washington, D.C. ended at The Museum of The Bible with a delightful and uplifting oasis experience at An Evening to Inspire," an event taking place in the midst of this phenomenal week. Pray for America everyone.
Amidst skipped handshakes and emotional speech rip-ups, America experienced a week of prayer; spearheaded by non-other than our nation's 45th president.
To be honest, while President Trump chose to avoid shaking hands with his adversaries during the week of the impeachment saga, I must admit that I agree with his wisdom.
There is actually scripture covering that:
"Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure." (1 Timothy 5:22)
The year 2020 is indeed off to a prayerful beginning.
Let us not forget that in January of this year, President Trump, our most anti-abortion president ever, granted us a historical first by speaking to a large audience at The March for Life.
Meanwhile, as Valentine’s Day approaches, Jensine Bard writes:
"It's time for respite as we approach a day that is marked by love — Valentine's Day and a movie that will take you there!!!"
"First Lady," is a story of firsts — "in love, in romance and, yes, politics too," according to Jensine Bard. It features a stellar cast: Nancy Stafford, Corbin Bernsen, Stacey Dash, Dr. Alveda C King, and a cameo by the film's writer and director: Nina May — just to name a few.
Anticipated release in selected theaters natonwide Valentine's Day Feb. 14, 2020.
Yes, 2020 is progressing. In the coming days, may God have mercy on our souls.
May America repent, return to God, sow and reap agape love.
May America also receive the eternal blessings of victory in Christ Jesus.
