THURSDAY MAY 3, DAY OF PRAYER SERVICE@NOON, SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS

Therefore, if you wish to join some committed believers, prayer leaders and spirit-led pastors to pray for all levels of this country – and ANY country for that matter – and to pray for our children, and for our children’s salvation and their children’s future walk with the Lord…..if you are that person come on down! Grab some friends of yours, who are like minded and come sing some well known praise songs with us, hear the Word proclaimed LOUDLY from the Top of a public square and pray with us.

All of Central Illinois is welcome to the 61st Annual Observance of what America calls her National Day of Prayer. While we should be living breathing 24/7/365 examples of a prayer as Second Nature, it is good to meet
in public to reaffirm our ground as belonging to the Lord Jesus. We do this by praying for His Hand upon our Families, Communities and the leaders of each city, state and branch of Government.

Never has the tide of human depravity been turned so powerfully and deadly against Biblical Christianity; the Family as God ordained in the Book of Genesis and the Culture. For too long, the church played “nice-nice” with the culture, with a wink and a nod, while acting the part on

Sunday mornings. No more…no more shall serious saints lay down, go to sleep and allow secularism blur the need for Salvation, as found ONLY in the Lord Jesus Christ.

NEW – THE DUTIES OF A CHRISTIAN MAN OR WOMAN!

BERNIE LUTCHMAN ON WLCF TV’S SPOTLIGHT WITH AL JOHNSON

This is a timely message, by Bernie Lutchman, recorded in April 2011 at the TV studios of WLCF TV, channel 45 in Decatur.





BASED ON JUDE 20:25 NKJV
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,  keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.And on some have compassion, making a distinction;  but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.  Now to Him who is able to keep you  from stumbling, And to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,  To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever.  Amen.

TIM & DEB SHULTZ BLESS OUR COUPLES AT BMIC DATE NIGHT DINNER!


The Jesus-powered duo of Tim and Debbie Shultz were an absolute blessing to the largest fellowship we ever had at all of our previous seven Business Men in Christ (BMIC) date night dinners!  Well known in the northern part of Springfield as the founders, directors and spiritual leaders of the LIFETIME PREGNANCY HELP CENTER, Deb and Tim spoke so much love, and hope and encouragement to our wives and us, as husbands that we left more united as spouses than when we came in!

Their full message can be seen above. If you were unable to make the dinner with your wife or special lady or your fiancee, please watch this….and remember this, no matter who old or young we are, no matter what stage of Life we are in…or season…or station…never let the Dream die and never let Christ be anything else but NUMBER ONE IN YUR HEART!
