NM COG/El Paso, TX Prayer Connect Newsletter for AUGUST!

5 Words & 300 People!

A Letter To The Church,
    Though Paul The Apostle spoke with the tongues of men and of angels, under the ministry leadership of The Holy Spirit he wrote, “nevertheless, in public worship I would rather say five understandable words in order to instruct others, than ten thousand words in a tongue [which others cannot understand].” – 1 Corinthians 14:19 AMP.  Every true spiritual awakening and revival that has been recorded throughout church history came when the common people got the gospel/The Good News “In Their Own Language! Whether it’s Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek or any of the other 6,500 languages spoken in the world today, no matter how theologically sound or intellectually sounding yours or my words may be, they literally miss the mark if those listening do not hear or comprehend what you and I + what The Holy Spirit may be trying to say.  In other words, Paul wanted to be understood, he wanted his words to be intelligible by the human mind and yes, The Mind Of Christ/Messiah that God has given every confessing born-again believer on planet earth, so that His Holy Spirit would lead and guide us into all truth! Just for fun, let’s explore some 5 word sayings from Holy Script, so we can get to the end game:
“I Am With You Always.”
“You Shall Be A Blessing.”
“The Lord Was With Him.”
“Have I Not Sent You?”
“Here I Am; Send Me!”
    Now, what can God do with some 300 people that are of one mind and heart to communicate His Love through both words and deeds, specifically the works He has prepared for us to do? According to Judges 7:6, 16, 22 & 8:4, God chose 300 people (out of an original 32,000), put 300 trumpets/shofars and 300 empty pitchers into the hands of all of them, with torches inside the pitchers and delivered Jerubbaal (that is, Gideon the son of Joash) and all the people who were with him, by dividing them into 3 separate groups of 100 people each and then gave the Midianites, Amalekites and all their enemies on every side into their hands.  Gideon said to his people. just as Jesus says to you and me, “Look At ME And Do Likewise.  And Do As I Do,” so they blew the trumpets, smashed the pitchers, held the torches in their left hands and the shofars in their right hands and cried, “A Sword For The Lord And For Gideon!” If you were one of the 300 people who attended the July 23 Prayer At The Heart Of New Mexico Event at Sloan-Simpson Park in Corona, THANK-YOU, but now it’s time to divide and conquer.  We must reach into the heart, the very center of each of our 33 counties and 23 Tribal Nations in 2023! This vision cannot happen without your prayers and participation, every member must do their part, so we can all enter into God’s fullness for our state and eventually into the center of each city in 2024.  Please visit http://prayerattheheart.org and help us get The Word out to every New Mexican (ALL 2,117,522 people).  Volunteer to coordinate a PATH Event in your county and network The Body Of Christ/Messiah to seek and save the lost in every village, land grant, hamlet, township and Pueblo in our great state, across America and around the world, for God wishes that NONE would perish, but that ALL would Come to Repentance! If you or someone you know would like to hold a prayer event in or around NM, do not hesitate to contact me.
May God’s Richest Blessings Be Yours,

New Mexico Prayer ConnectMARCH 2022 – NM Prayer Connect Newsletter: If You Remain Silent…Esther 4:13-14Amplified Bible. 13 Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not imagine that you in the king’s palace can escape any more than all the Jews. 14 For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s …

“TIMING Is EVERYTHING & THIS Is YOUR Time!” – July 2022 New Mexico Prayer Connect Newsletter

“There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and ‘EVENT’ or purpose under heaven” — Ecclesiastes 3:1 AMP.

Sisters & Brothers In Yeshua/Jesus/Salvation,
On Saturday, July 23, 2022, 10am-4pm at Sloan-Simpson Park in Corona, New Mexico, Believers/Followers Of Messiah/Christ/The Anointed ONE from ALL 33 Counties & 23 Tribal Nations in our state will gather together, as ONE In HIM to Pray/Praise, hear from GOD and each other @ PRAYER AT THE HEART OF NEW MEXICO http://prayerattheheart.org .  Hopefully you have already registered @ http://www.christianbody.tv/Events and plan on participating, by spending the day with us, bringing a scripture to share and a topic to pray over that’s near and dear to your heart and God’s.   PLEASE, Invite EVERYONE you know to come and share this information with other’s via email, messaging, text, calling and sharing on social media + certainly by personal invitation.  This is NOT just another event, but it is what God is doing in our day, across America in every state! Next year we’ll be praying at the heart of every county in each state and in 2024 we’ll be in the center of each city, believing God will call people out of this present darkness and into His marvelous Light, because His Word says, as we come together in the Unity of The Holy Spirit, according to His Plan and Purpose, He will command His Blessing upon us, as His People!

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil [of consecration] poured on the head, Coming down on the beard, Even the beard of Aaron, Coming down upon the edge of his [priestly] robes [consecrating the whole body]. It is like the dew of [Mount] Hermon Coming down on the hills of Zion; For there the LORD has commanded the blessing: life forevermore.”  – Psalm 133 AMP.

Apart from Him, we can do NOTHING, so we need Him (Desperately), but we need you too and every member within The Body Of Messiah/Christ, Jew, Gentile, male, female, red, yellow, black, white, young and elderly to do their part, so prayerfully consider attending this very special day for the State of NM.  We’re encouraging everyone to participate in a Rooftop Encounter the Friday evening prior to this event to catch God’s Vision for your community @ http://therooftop.org , because without His Knowledge, Wisdom and Vision we perish!

“For because of Him the whole body (the church/’Ecclesia/Ekklesia/The Called Out Ones’, in all its various parts), closely joined and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, when each part [with power adapted to its need] is working properly [in all its functions], grows to full maturity, building itself up in love.” – Ephesians 4:16 AMPC.

If you or someone you know would like to hold an event in or around your area of NM or the surrounding states, don’t hesitate to contact me.

A MESSAGE FROM JOHN ROBB Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Warm greetings to you! Our planning team representing Native, Hispanic, and Anglo prayer ministries met recently and reported how…

     Imagine your a fly on the wall or in this case the well and listening to a conversation happening about the sixth hour, high noon, between Jesus and a woman of Samaria in a town called Sychar.  He’s tired from His journey, leaving Judea to return to Galilee and sits down to rest by the well of Jacob, who gave this tract of land to his son Joseph, so when the woman came to draw water, Jesus says to her, “Give Me a drink”- to which the woman asks, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask me, a Samaritan [and a] woman, for a drink?-For the Jews have nothing to do with Samaritans.” If she had only known and recognized God’s gift and Who was saying to her, “Give Me a drink,” she could have asked Him [instead] and He would have given her living water.  

     John 4:11 The woman said to him, “Sir, you have nothing to draw water with, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water? 12 iAre you greater than our father Jacob? jHe gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did his sons and his livestock.” 13 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, 14 but kwhoever drinks of the water that I will give him lwill never be thirsty again.2 The water that I will give him will become min him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” 15 The woman said to him, “Sir, ngive me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water (ESV).”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               After a long discourse with this woman, whose name only Jesus knows, she speaks about her ancestral fathers and how they worshiped on this mountain, but the Jews say that Jerusalem is the place where it’s necessary and proper to worship, but He responds to her, you and me, “Believe Me, the time is coming and now is, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth (reality)!” She knew Messiah/Christ (the Anointed One) was coming, that He would tell us everything we need to know and make it clear to us, to which Jesus replied, “I Who now speak with you am He.” The disciples now enter the scene and the woman exits, but only to tell the people, “Come, see a Man Who has told me everything I ever did!” In the meantime, His disciples urge Him to eat, but He replies, “I have food (nourishment) to eat of which you know nothing and have no idea, which is to do the will (pleasure) of Him Who sent Me and to accomplish and completely finish His work.  
   I’ve taken you on this little journey, which lasted another two days for Jesus, Who wound up staying with the Samaritans, before getting on to His desired haven of Galilee, because The Vine bore good fruit and lasting fruit for God’s Kingdom, which is why we’re still talking about this message today, it’s eternal.     We just came through the Passover, Feast of Firstfruits & Unleavened Bread, celebrating our Passover Lamb, The One Who takes away the sins of the world and hopefully you’re all counting up 50 days to Pentecost, but have you really tasted and seen that The LORD Is Good? Do you have rivers of Living Water flowing out of your belly? Have you drunk from The Well(Spring) Of Salvation/Yeshua? 

  Isaiah 12:2-6Amplified Bible (AMP)

2. Behold, God, my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, for the Lord God is my strength and song; yes, He has become my salvation.

3. Therefore with joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation.

4. And in that day you will say, Give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name and by means of His name [in solemn entreaty]; declare and make known His deeds among the peoples of the earth, proclaim that His name is exalted!

5. Sing praises to the Lord, for He has done excellent things [gloriously]; let this be made known to all the earth.

6. Cry aloud and shout joyfully, you women and inhabitants of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.  

   I hope and pray that every confessing Christian will attend the Prayer At The Heart of New Mexico event, happening on July 23, 2022 at Sloan-Simpson Park, 10am-4pm in Corona, NM.  Please register at the ChristianBody.Net link above, invite others and help us spread the word, so we can get representation from all 33 counties in our state, every tribal nation, red, yellow, black, white, male, female, young & old, because in 2023 we’ll have Prayer At The Heart in the center of each county and in 2024 we’re praying for events in the center of every city, not only here in NM, but across America, so visit:  http://prayerattheheart.org Prayer At The Heart

MARCH 2022 NM Prayer Connect Newsletter: If You Remain Silent…

MARCH 2022 – NM Prayer Connect Newsletter:  If You Remain Silent… 

Esther 4:13-14Amplified Bible

13 Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not imagine that you in the king’s palace can escape any more than all the Jews. 14 For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?”
Sisters & Brothers In Yeshua/Jesus,

            As the world focuses on the Russia-Ukraine situation, biblically aligning us with Ezekiel’s end of days visions, I believe as God brought judgement against Egypt and their gods, because of the hardening of their hearts toward Him, He is going to arise and may His enemies be scattered! He promises to show Himself Mighty, El Shaddai In Our Midst & ALL His Promises are Yes & Amen In Messiah/Christ, but we must believe in, cling to, trust in and rely on Him in our times of need and not doubt that He Is Who He says He Is, The Great I AM.  Without Faith it is Impossible to please Him, so we must take Him at His Word/Yeshua/Jesus!

             Purim/Lots, a JOYous Festival commemorating the survival of the Jews (their history goes back over 1.000 years in Ukraine), who were marked for death by their Persian/Iranian rulers, in the 5th century BC (an early version of Hitler’s “Final Solution”), is related in the Biblical Book of Esther (Megillat Esther) and celebrated on Thursday, March 17th this year.  From fasting to feasting, prayer to praise and oppression to elation, you and I today are here, like Queen Esther, “For Such A Time As This” and we cannot be silent.  It was during this same time and season that God showed His Faithluness to His Covenant People. 

Genesis 12:2-3Amplified Bible

And [a]I will make you a great nation,
And I will bless you [abundantly],
And make your name great (exalted, distinguished);
And you shall be a blessing [a source of great good to others];

And I will bless (do good for, benefit) those who bless you,
And I will curse [that is, subject to My wrath and judgment] the one who curses (despises, dishonors, has contempt for) you.
And in you all the families (nations) of the earth will be blessed.”

             The latest population estimate for Ukraine is 42,800,000 with 360,000–400,000 Jews and God will intervene where His character is at stake!

Romans 11:29 AMPC

For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.]

             Purim is perhaps the most expressive feast in the biblical calendar and believers might choose this time and season to intercede for the protection & salvation of Israel and all in this present world of darkness, who do not personally know Him and The Power Of His Resurrection.  It is The Same GOD, Who desires to Bless our personal lives today and Lots Is A Great Time Of JOY for Believers In Yeshua/Jesus The Messiah/Christ! Life In Him Is an Amazing Journey, from here to Eternity and through Prayer & Hope, we can Rejoice, even in the darkest of times, so may His Spiritual JOY Be Yours in a Fresh Way as you Celebrate the Full Meaning of God’s Appointed Times & Seasons we are now living through together In Him. 

Romans 10:1-4Amplified Bible

The Word of Faith Brings Salvation

10 Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God for Israel is for their salvation. For I testify about them that they have a certain enthusiasm for God, but not in accordance with [correct and vital] knowledge [about Him and His purposes]. For not knowing about God’s righteousness [which is based on faith], and seeking to establish their own [righteousness based on works], they did not submit to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law [it leads to Him and its purpose is fulfilled in Him], for [granting] righteousness to everyone who believes [in Him as Savior]. 

             On April 9th we will be in Brady, TX for the Prayer At The Heart event with Doug Small, Rick Curry & others and on Wednesday, March 16th, I will be interviewing Gerard Long from http://www.prayerattheheart.org http://awakeningtogod.org and http://www.livinghopebook.com @christianbody.net @YouTube @appletv @roku @streamingchurch.tv and on other social media sites.  Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 23rd for the Prayer At The Heart of NM, 10am on the 7Up/7Down Ranch in the middle of our state, help us get the word out by sharing this information, invite others and hope to see you all there + if you or anyone you know would like to hold a prayer event anywhere in or around NM, don’t hesitate to contact me. 

Thanks & Blessings,

Mark Tross

Hi Mark & Juliet,
Impact Nations is inviting people from around the world, and from many different church streams to an event we are calling The Beautiful Gospel Conference. From May 11 to 14 we are gathering in Albuquerque, New Mexico for what we believe will be an extraordinary time together.
We have three world-class speakers and theologians coming who are friends of Impact Nations––Brian Zahnd, Brad Jersak, and Cherith Nordling. They share a common passion to communicate just how beautiful the Gospel really is––deeper and higher, more beautiful and all-encompassing than many of us have ever known. Beyond teaching us, they are coming to facilitate encounter, both in and among us. To further help us on this journey, we have invited three other workshop speakers to lead us in how to apply what we are learning and experiencing.
The river of God is very wide, with each stream adding to the overall richness of life within the river. Therefore, we are reaching out to men and women from many Church traditions, all gathering around our common love for Jesus. We all have so much to learn from each other.
I am asking for your help. Our biggest challenge is to let people know, far and wide, about this remarkable gathering. Would you please help me by forwarding this invitation to your friends and contacts? I know of no more powerful and effective way to get the word out. Thank you so much for this.
We are in a time in history when the Holy Spirit is stirring a deep longing: our hearts are telling us, there has to be more. Let that common desire bring us together this May. It really is a Beautiful Gospel.
We have created a website with lots of information about The Beautiful Gospel. Visit it today at www.beautifulgospelconference.com.
Looking forward to a wonderful time together in May.
With love for Jesus and His Bride,
P.S. Register for The Beautiful Gospel Conference before March 1st for a chance to win a $100 conference shopping spree.

National Day of Prayer Task Force Tour Bus to stop in Albuquerque for Prayer Rally

The National Day of Prayer Task Force headquartered in Colorado Springs is on a bus tour this summer holding prayer rallies in 37 states.  They are meeting with pastors and intercessors in each state to pray for the state and the nation.  They will be in Albuquerque for a Prayer Rally on Thursday, August 29 at New Beginnings Church.

America has probably never been in more need of prayer than today.  We need to come together and pray fervently for our nation.  Please spread the word about this prayer rally to your friends and join us for prayer at one or both of the following events.

When:    Thursday, August 29
11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Where:   New Beginnings Church
3601 Montgomery Blvd. NE  87109
(Corner of Montgomery and Carlisle, a few blocks east of I-25)

Host:       Pastor Richard Mansfield

Lunch?    No food will be served.  We encourage you to eat before or after the prayer meeting,
or if you feel led by the Holy Spirit, to fast during the noon hour as we join in prayer.

We will begin indoors with a brief time of worship.  Then one of the members of the National Day of Prayer Task Force will speak to us briefly about the power of prayer and the things we need to be praying for.  Following that we will launch into a time of fervent prayer for our nation.  We hope to move outside to pray later during the event, so consider wearing some sunscreen, as the sun can get rather intense in New Mexico in August.


For those who cannot be at the Prayer Rally on Thursday or who just want another opportunity to pray with the NDP Task Force, they will be at the Heights Cumberland Presbyterian Church on Wednesday evening, August 28.

When:    Wednesday, August 28
7:00 – 8:20 pm

Where:   Heights Cumberland Presbyterian Church sanctuary
8600 Academy Rd. NE  87111
(Corner of Academy and Moon)

Hosts:     Lori Robb, Church Prayer Coordinator, and Pastor Aaron McMillan

To find out more about the NDPTF bus tour, see http://nationaldayofprayer.org/on-the-road-to-pray-for-america/

Mission Statement

We want to call brothers and sisters in Christ from all denominations and traditions to pray for our state so we can see together the hand of the Lord bringing His transformation to every institution and sector of our society.

We seek to accomplish this by sending out a regular prayer guide for the state and by coordinating regular prayer gatherings around the state.

Prayer Guide for August 2013

Prayer for Rain- Thanks be to God for hearing our prayers for rain! There have been a number of good rain storms across New Mexico since our last month’s call to pray for this. Let’s continue to look to the Lord for an end to the drought and the refilling of our lakes and aquifers.

State Prayer Summit- Our next state prayer summit is scheduled for Friday, September 6, from 8:30 am to 12 noon. We will begin in the Rotunda at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe and then probably move to another nearby venue for refreshments and then another session of prayer regarding New Mexico issues. We are asking Governor Susana Martinez and other officials to share their concerns for prayer for New Mexico during the first session. Ministry leaders of all denominations along with youth and children are being invited to take part. If you have a heart to pray for His transformation of our state, please join us for this important time together in the Lord’s presence. For more information, contact the NM Prayer Connect office at office@ipcprayer.org.

Prayer For Our Arts and Entertainment:
The TV program “Glee” is rated as one of the most pro-homosexual shows on television. Those opposed to the lifestyle are portrayed as crude, cartoonish “homophobic” bullies. In contrast to the mandated positive portrayal, the real-life lesbian actress on the show, Jane Lynch, “divorced” her partner of three years, Lara Embry; and the show’s thirty-one year old lead actor Cory Monteith was found dead of an alcohol and heroin overdose.
Pray that our Arts and Entertainment industry would be populated by those guided by the Lord’s commands.
“He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”  John 14:21

Prayer For Our Businesses:
Faced with the burden of Obamacare, many companies have reduced employee work weeks to less than 30 hours to avoid paying for health care. That means that employees are either doing with less or are working two jobs to maintain the same level of income. Please pray for this regulation to be dropped so families can return to a manageable job market.

Prayer For Our Educational System:
Under the administration of Governor Susana Martinez, New Mexico has gone to a letter grade system in assessing school achievement. A quick assessment of school performance can be had by this method. Please pray that the system remains and that schools continue to improve.

Prayer For Our Families:

New Mexico is seeing an alarming rise in children living in single parent households. In 2007 there were 177,000 single-parent households across that state.  That number jumped to 208,000 in 2011, and continues to climb. The breakdown of the family means an increased number of children living in poverty, a greater reliance on government subsidies and greater social ills. Please pray for marriage to be honored and restored as the norm in our state.

Prayer For Our Government:
The Supreme Court struck down a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act. The Court also allowed the decision of one homosexual judge to stand, silencing the voices of seven million Californians who voted for Proposition 8 and traditional marriage.

Locally, Santa Fe’s County Clerk, Geraldine Salazar, is being sued for obeying state law. Ms. Salazar refused to issue a marriage license to two men wishing to “marry.”

Without notice to the Christian community, the Santa Fe County Commissioners passed a resolution to support homosexual “marriage.” Because the agenda item was not broadly publicized, opposition to the resolution was not heard.

Please pray for marriage as God designed and intended.

Prayer For Our Media:
A Kaiser Family Foundation survey found that the number of sex scenes on television nearly doubled from 1998 to 2005. An American Academy of Pediatrics report states that “more than 75 percent of prime-time programs contain sexual content” – 8 to 10 times per hour. (SEE http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/126/3/576.full)

Our homes are connected to the outside world by television and radio. The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is the government agency overseeing a decaying standard of decency over the airwaves. The FCC would like to slacken the already lax standards for broadcast programs that we view and hear.

Please pray that the FCC will not slacken their standards regarding what is allowed over the nation’s airwaves.

Prayer For Our Religion:
The question of homosexuality in the priesthood surfaced again.  Pope Benedict, the current Pope Francis’ predecessor, urged those with homosexual leanings to stay out of the priesthood. The current Pope Francis has suggested that being homosexual does not make one unfit for the priesthood but homosexual activity does. It is a subtle but significant change from his predecessor’s stance. Please pray that all those called to ministry would be of the Lord and not of the flesh.

July Prayer Guide

Arts & Entertainment:
The sports world was excited with the announcement by professional basketball’s Jason Collins of the Washington Wizards that he was a homosexual. Jason received a phone call from the President of the United to compliment him on his “courage.”  Meanwhile ESPN reporter Chris Broussard explained clearly and concisely the Christian concept of sin and repentance. Predictably and unfortunately, it was Mr. Broussard came under attack, calling him an “embattled” sportscaster. Of course nothing was made of Jason’s fiancé of eight years, Carolyn Moos, who was most gracious in the face of deception, saying only that her “dreams must change.” Pray for men and women in the media that declare and profess Christian principles.

Many believe the year-long postponement of Obamacare’s business mandate, requiring businesses to make available birth control pills and abortifacients on demand was politically motivated. The lawsuits challenging the law remain pending. Pray that Christian businesses and organizations are spared violating their conscience as the result of Obamacare.

Seven million Californians voted to define marriage as being only between one man and one woman. One homosexual judge overturned the vote of the people. The homosexual community sued and brought the issue before the Supreme Court. The Court declared that only the Governor of the State or the Attorney General could bring the case before the court. The result was that the homosexual judge’s opinion stands, denying the voting citizens of California. Because homosexuality is now a legitimate “lifestyle,” it is being taught in public schools. Pray that our public schools will return to the principle for which they were founded, reading the Bible.

“N.M. Hits Bottom in Child Well-Being” was the headline in the Albuquerque Journal on June 24. New Mexico ranks 50th in the “National Kids Count” survey. Children raised in single parent-homes, poverty with dismal graduation rates begin life with major disadvantages. Pray for strong marriages and families in New Mexico.

Recent revelations show that the National Security Administration has had access to personal phone records.  It has long been known that social media sites were being stored. A constitutional right to privacy has been eroded by virtue of our government’s use of technological advances. The  consequences of government surveillance could be devastating. Pray for a just and moral government and an end to citizen surveillance.

Recently the Santa Fe Reporter, a liberal weekly tabloid, published a cartoon cover of Our Lady of Guadaupe in a bikini and sipping on margarita. The Catholic community, especially, was duly alarmed and disgusted. After a public outcry, the Reporter apologized and explained that they had used the cover in an attempt to display cultural diversity in Santa Fe. Pray for righteousness and respect in all of Media.

Exodus, a Christian program for men and women recovering from homosexuality, closed the doors on its 250 agencies and apologized to the homosexual community for causing them harm. The apology was accepted with much triumph by the “Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation,” an organization that promotes the homosexual lifestyle through such means as anonymous sexual encounters in public parks.  Pray that another Christian organization will follow to carry on the work.

NM Prayer Connect June 2013 Prayer Guide

Arts & Entertainment:

Rarely does a pro-life message appear in today’s pop culture, however, a song by country artist Kenny Chesney does just that.  The song, “There Goes My Life,” was released in 2003.  To view  CLICK HERE.   Pray that the message of how precious life is continues to be propagate.

Obamacare requires businesses to make available birth control pills and abortifacients on demand. Hobby Lobby has sued the Federal Government in hopes of having their deeply held moral beliefs respected by this administration.  Pray that Hobby Lobby and other Christian organizations are successful in avoiding this assault on their beliefs.

In contrast with the recent Boy Scouts of America’s decision to allow homosexual scouts into their ranks, we are in the season for Vacation Bible Schools.  Pray that the Word of the Lord will be disseminated though the Vacation Bible School experience to many, many children.

Recently the states of Minnesota and Delaware have redefined “marriage” to include same-sex couples.  The United States Supreme Count will decide on the constitutionality of two cases.  The Defense of Marriage Act defines marriage as being between one man and one woman at the federal level.  California voted for Proposition 8, which declared marriage as being between one man and one woman in that state, but was overturned by a homosexual judge.  Pray that the Supreme Court will judge in favor of the traditional family in both cases. 

Since 2010 the Federal Government, through the Internal Revenue Service, has stonewalled those whose ideology and religious beliefs differ from the current administration.  Pray for a just and moral government.

The lack of media coverage of Dr. Kermit Gosnel’s horrific medical practice regarding late term abortions points once again to a media bias.  The Philadelphia medical practice resulted in a murder conviction and a life imprisonment for Dr. Gosnel.  Pray for an honest and fair media.

With the assault on Christian values, the time has come to stand firm for Christian beliefs.  “Pulpit Freedom Sunday, June 9” is the Sunday when pastors are urged to preach on biblical marriage. Please pray for Pulpit Freedom Sunday, June 9 and urge your pastor to preach on Christian marriage and its meaning.  For more information CLICK HERE.

April 2013 Prayer Guide

Arts & Entertainment:
The History Channel broadcast a four part series called “The Bible.”  The response was enormous and unexpected.  An estimate of 70 million persons watched the series. 
Praise God for the success and the propagation of His Word. 

The economy remains depressed with a few glimmers of growth.  The stock market continues to rise and apartment buildings are being built, but fewer and fewer people are even looking for work.
Please pray for an improved economic recovery.

Home schooling is popular because parents do not want public schools to teach their children behavior that is immoral. There is a strong Christian homeschool community in New Mexico, and many of them are involved with the the NM Christian Association of Parent Educators (CAPE) organization which is having its annual homeschool convention this week (April 18-20) at Legacy Church in Albuquerque.
Please pray that virtue and morality will again be taught in public schools and that immoral behavior will no longer be promoted.  Praise God for the options that parents have to offer their children a Christ-centered education at home.

Judge Edward Korman, a federal judge from New York, removed the age restriction for the “morning after” pill.  No prescription is needed.  A child who thinks she might be pregnant is allowed to go to a drug store and purchase chemicals that will abort a baby.
Pray against the proliferation of abortifacients.

The battle for traditional marriage is being waged at the Supreme Court and in Santa Fe, where the City Council is considering a Resolution that encourages County Clerks through New Mexico to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couple.  We’re thankful that none of the bills that would have redefined marriage made it through the NM Legislature this year.
Please pray that all governments will recognize only traditional, one man-one woman marriage, thus protecting freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Please pray that the media will learn to love the truth.  Media events today tend to be slanted toward political agendas rather than the standard of seeking and reporting the truth.
Pray for truth in media.

Thank God for a wonderful Easter season to celebrate the resurrection of our Jesus Christ!  The National Day of Prayer is coming up on Thursday, May 2, 2013.  To see a list of events in your area or to post one for your church, visit http://nationaldayofprayer.org/.  This year’s theme, “Pray for America”, is based on Matthew 12:21 which reminds us that “In His name the nations will put their hope.”  National Day of Prayer Task Force Chairman Shirley Dobson, wife of Dr. James Dobson, has said that, “The American people continue to be plagued with challenges that defy simple answers, and our hope lies in humbly seeking the Almighty’s guidance, protection, and blessing – not only on the National Day of Prayer, but throughout the year.”
Please pray for a wonderful National Day of Prayer and that many people in our sate and nation would turn their eyes to God.
