Prior to Election Night, Mike Pence Explained the Power of Prayer in Our Political Process

Our leaders are in need of our prayers, and so are our countrymen.

Well, the election has come and gone, and voter enthusiasm was so high on both sides, it appeared there was neither a red or blue tsunami.

Perhaps it’s just the starry-eyed optimist in me talking, but I feel a glimmer of hope that perhaps if both parties walked away from this election happy, there might be hope for unity in our nation yet.

At the very least, Democrats and Republicans will be forced to work together now to accomplish their goals…or we could be in for another two years of polarization and constant clashing.

Trending: Trump Gives HILARIOUS Response When Asked About Socialist Ocasio-Cortez (Watch)

Who knows.

Mike Pence, who worked closely with the President in the days leading up to the election to stump for candidates who supported the MAGA agenda, shared with CBN News that he was confident his party would see victory on November 6th.

There were many notable victories, of course, but Pence’s prediction that Republicans would keep to the House did not indeed come to pass.

He did, however, make some comments on the role prayer plays in our elections that any person of faith will appreciate, with our without a red tsunami.

CBN noted that in the days leading up to the election, Pence was charged with motivating the votes of the faithful, a role he has excelled at during his time in the Trump administration.

This is, of course, his comfort zone, as he is a man of profound faith himself, and shared with CBN a bit about his spiritual perspective of our nation and our voting process.

“Whatever happens Tuesday night,” CBN wrote, “Mike Pence sees a larger hand at work in the country… God using imperfect people to accomplish His perfect will.”

“I believe as every President from George Washington forward believed in the role of Providence in the life of this nation,” Pence said. “I really do believe the prayers of the American people have made a difference. And even in these divided times, I do believe those prayers are a pathway to heal our country and continue to move our nation forward.”

Remember, while we may have many leaders in Washington who rely on a greater power, there are also many who do not.

Either way, our leaders are in need of our prayers, and so are our countrymen.

So, red or blue, pray for our nation, and pray for your neighbor.

On What Seemed Like Another Ordinary Route, This Mailman Became A Hero

Published

The Bible tells us that God orders our steps. Anyone who still believes in coincidences just hasn’t encountered God’s miraculous hand in their lives.

For one mail carrier in North Carolina, what seemed like a delay in his route turned into God’s perfect timing.

Chris Petersen, who has served in the Postal Service for 32 years, was rushing to finish his Christmas Eve mail route in Cary, a town about 10 miles west of Raleigh.

Just moments after delivering a few parcels to a neighboring home, Petersen shared with Fox News that he heard shouting coming from another house on the street.

The shouting came from Pam Hodgin, who was crying out for help after her husband, Mike, had collapsed in their home.

Petersen and two other neighbors sprang into action, running into the Hodgins’ home to assess the situation.

Mike was sprawled out on the kitchen floor, unconscious and not breathing. While fear of losing her precious husband began to grip Pam, Petersen immediately began performing CPR.

After about two minutes of Petersen administering the life-saving procedure, Mike gasped for breath and opened his eyes wide.

Emergency responders were soon at the scene, and it was determined that Mike had suffered from a sudden heart attack. If his wife hadn’t called for help at that very moment and if Petersen hadn’t been running late on his route, the Hodgins’ family holiday might have been a much darker time.

“My mother-in-law always says that everything happens for a reason,” Petersen shared with Fox News. “I was running late that day because I was meant to be there to help Mike. I couldn’t have imagined a better outcome.”

“Chris is my hero,” Mike told Fox News, “and it is because of him I’m alive today to watch my grandsons grow and enjoy each new day.”

Praise God for his perfect timing! Never forget, God orders the steps of his children. The next time you find yourself running late, watch out, it might just be God setting you up to be a blessing in someone else’s life.

The Incredible Way These Christian Students Are Bringing the Gospel to the Hearing Impaired

Published

on

By

When we think of how to reach all different people with the Gospel, what kind of “different” do we have in mind? People in other towns? Other countries? Maybe people in prison? What about different abilities?

Communication between deaf and hearing people is an often overlooked language barrier, but if we’re to spread the Gospel to every creature, this barrier must be overcome.

The Passion Conference was founded in 1995 by Louie Giglio, and seeks to “glorify God by uniting students in worship, prayer and justice for spiritual awakening in this generation,” according to their website.

“Since 2007, believing worship + justice are two sides of the same coin,” the Passion website continues, “students at Passion have generously given over $18 million to 70 amazing partner organizations around the world.”

Passion, it declares, is more than just music, teaching, and preaching. It’s a movement for Christ.

“In the last week, people have gathered for football games and holiday celebrations,” Passion’s global ambassador Brad Jones said in a statement to Fox News. “During Passion 2019, 40,000 college students and leaders gathered under one name—the name of Jesus. Passion is more than an event; we exist to see this generation live for what matters most—for us, that’s the fame of Jesus.”

Previous conferences have raised millions of dollars for incredibly worthy ministries and initiatives. This year, Passion set its sights on a new target: the language barrier that prevents deaf people from receiving the Gospel in their own sign language.

If you’re unfamiliar with this issue—don’t worry, many people are—you might ask why deaf people can’t just read the Bible?

According to the Deaf Bible Society, “as many as 80 percent of Deaf children in some countries never receive access to formal education.” It’s not so simple, especially if a deaf child or adult has never been taught to read in their language.

This means that over 70 million souls worldwide who are never taught to read aren’t hearing the Gospel because, well, they can’t hear.

With over 400 different sign languages in the world, missionaries who seek to reach deaf people with God’s saving truth certainly have their work cut out for them.

So, at the 2019 Passion conference, those thousands of young people gathered to praise and worship the Lord, and then get to doing His work in the world. They raised a stunning $448,370 for the Deaf Bible Society as part of Hope in Every Language, a campaign that, according to Fox News, “helps fund and distributes translations of the stories of Jesus into the unique sign language to areas that haven’t been reached.”

Because of the Passion attendees’ tremendous giving, the New Testament gospels will be translated into the unique sign languages of Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Moldova, Egypt, Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Japan, and Russia.

Praise God for this incredible work in removing yet another barrier to the Gospel! Pray that the people reached would, at least figuratively, have ears to hear His truth.
