  • If it was the year AD 67 and we were living in Rome, Christian persecution would be a common evil in our society.  The Emperor, Nero, was torturing and killing Christians for pleasure!  Even from earlier on, we can see other accounts of persecution including Stephen’s death only a few years following the crucifixion of Christ.  Jesus prophesied to his disciples that his followers would be arrested, handed over, and hated because of his name (Matthew 10:19-22).

  • “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana.

  • Tens of thousands of prayer events are planned across the country on Thursday May 7, 2009, to honor the 58th  Annual National Day of Prayer.  In churches, parks and on courthouse steps, citizens will be praying for our nation, government leaders, media, military, schools, churches, businesses and families.
