NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND FIRM
What can the Christians in the West do to really make a difference? Is your heart grieving over the growing number of ISIS victims? Now is the time to stand firm in our faith and get on our knees in prayer for the families and friends of all those who have been murdered.
For the next forty days we will share with you Scriptures, Prayers, Insights, Quotes and Encouraging Words that we hope and pray will transform your thinking and way of life as we prepare to reflect and repent in preparation of the Holy Week and the Resurrection Day of our Lord.

Now is the time to stand firm!
At the start of legislative sessions in the U.S. Senate a daily prayer is typically offered by the Senate Chaplain. On April 18, 1947 Chaplain Peter Marshall spoke the following words:
Our Father, we yearn for a better understanding of spiritual things, that we may know surely what Thy will is for us and for our Nation. Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for—because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
