Pray Without Ceasing in 2015Submit a Prayer Request or Praise Report

"One of our chief problems as preachers is finding enough inner security, by God's grace, to do our work without being intimidated by the society around us, and without trying to court the favor of people who are in power." --Gardner C. Taylor

"Let's not get it twisted. We love good movies but movies cannot and will not replace preaching. Every God-called preacher ought to be preaching somewhere. Preach the Word, preacher, in season and out of season, whether you feel like it or not." --Daniel Whyte III



If There Ever Was a Time for the Church to March and Practice Civil Disobedience, that Time Is Now - Read What Francis Schaeffer Wrote 33 Years Ago in his Book,
"A Christian Manifesto":

It happened so subtly that few people noticed at first. Little by little, morality and freedom started to crumble. It came first in government, in education, in the media - and finally it began to shake our families and our own lives.

Something fundamental has changed. Law and government no longer provide a foundation of justice and morality but have become the means of licensing moral perversions of all kinds. Education has become the enemy of religious truth and values. And the media have provided the means for propagating the change.

Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer explains why this has happened. First, he shows how we have failed to understand the problem - to see that the whole foundation for society has shifted radically from its original Judeo-Christian basis to a humanistic basis. As the humanistic view takes over, it necessarily destroys the whole way of life built upon the Judeo-Christian heritage. Second, Dr. Schaeffer calls for a massive movement - in government, law and all of life - to reestablish the Judeo-Christian foundation and turn the tide of moral decadence and loss of freedom.

Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer calls for Christians to change the course of history - by returning to biblical Truth and by allowing Christ to be Lord in all of life. To do this, Schaeffer says, will involve a head-on confrontation with the false view that material or energy, shaped by chance, is the final reality.

Schaeffer's provocative conclusion is that when the state directly defies the absolute law of God, its authority becomes illegitimate. In this case, the Christian is bound to resist the state by whatever means necessary - through direct legal and political action, and possibly through massive demonstrations of civil disobedience.


Dwight McKissic Calls for a Solemn Assembly

Says Churches of All Races and Denominations Need to Come Together to Hold a Solemn Assembly to Seek God's Face to Prevent Homosexual Marriage from Being Legalized in the U.S.

Dwight McKissic said, "The lines are being drawn fast, hard, and irrevocably among church groups and denominations surrounding the issue of same-sex marriage. Historically and currently, the Black church has held to biblical standards on the subject of homosexuality, but we are now being tested from within and without. In the past 40 years, how did we move from homosexuality being a 'mental illness' and a felony and same-sex marriage being illegal, to it being 'justice' and 'equality,' 'welcoming and affirming' and approved of by every sector of society, except the evangelical church? There is a high probability that by late June of this year, the Supreme Court of the United States will sanction same-sex marriage in every State in the nation. Currently, it is approved in 37 states. The only hope that same-sex marriage does not become the law of the land this calendar year, is that the church comes together across racial and denominational lines, and hold a solemn assembly, seeking God’s face to Divinely intervene and prevent this from happening. Nevertheless, the Church needs to be prepared to address our position on homosexuality regardless to the decision that the Supreme Court takes."


Russell Moore Calls for Prayer Ahead of Supreme Court Case

"As a church we need to pray that marriage will not be treated as if it were a tattered house standing in the way of government construction—there to be plowed out of the way in the name of progress. And yet, on the other hand, we must pray and ask God to give us wisdom so that moving forward we would be able to spell out with convictional kindness why marriage matters, in light of who we are as men and women and in light of the gospel mystery of Christ and his church."


SBC President Ronnie Floyd Leads National Call for Prayer

"It is time to call out to God for the next Great Awakening and to reach the world for Christ. On Tuesday night, June 16, we will give the entire evening session of the SBC Annual Meeting to this national prayer gathering. We will gather to experience the presence of God based upon the Word of God. We will be challenged briefly by some of America’s great pastors, then launch into prayer sessions in response to God and His Word. We will also express our worship and praise to God together through music and singing."


Franklin Graham Calls for Prayer Rallies Across America

"America is in trouble. At 62 years of age, I’ve lived long enough to learn that neither the Democrats nor the Republicans can turn this country around; no political party or politician is the answer. The only hope for this country is Almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ."


David Lane and the American Renewal Project Encourages Pastors to Hold Prayer Services During Supreme Court Homosexual Marriage Case on April 28

"Why are not the churches of America filled with prayer services, led by senior pastors, asking God for mercy of what we have allowed to a once Christian nation? Who will, by faith, help America’s pastors track down the weapons of warfare? Prayer and tears are the Christians weapons of war, very little cannonading and bombardment appears to be occurring in America’s sanctuaries today."


So, What Are You Going To Do, Christian Pastors, Ministers, Leaders, Men and Women of God? Yes, it is time to pray as we have said for years, but it is also time to march. If you can't march for religious freedom and free speech and against homosexual marriage and the homosexual agenda, then you can't march for anything. Because of the failures of Christian leaders in the past to stand against the onslaught of homosexual marriage and the homosexual agenda in this country, this march that should happen may not change the minds of the Supreme Court, the President, or of other people, but it should be noted for the historical record and for our posterity, that God's people, followers of Jesus Christ, living during this time, took a stand for the Word of God while the abomination of homosexuality and the homosexual agenda was being brought upon our nation, not just through prayer and legal briefs, but through a public act of civil demonstration.

Will the Church Stand for God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Bible, and March on Washington for Religious Freedom and Free Speech and Against Homosexual Marriage and the Homosexual Agenda?

Is God giving the church the opportunity of the centuries to show her love for Him?

If there ever was a time to march against something that is a real issue in our society, that time is now. The issue is religious freedom and free speech in light of homosexual marriage and the homosexual agenda. The church needs to stand for God and truth in our society. Not since the Civil Rights Movement, which was a righteous cause, has the church had such an important cause to march on Washington. If we love God, easily 7 million Christians should march on Washington along with people of goodwill. It should be the largest march in the history of the world. If you really want racial reconciliation, nothing should bring black, white, red, and yellow Christians and people of goodwill together like this issue. Homosexual marriage has nothing to do with the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s. Martin Luther King Jr. did not die for homosexual marriage. Who will be the Martin Luther King Jr. of our time?

BCNN1 is calling on Christian leaders to lead a mass march some time within the next few weeks to the steps of the Supreme Court to let the Supreme Court, President Obama, the Justice Department, and this nation know that there are Christians in this country who oppose the legalization of same-sex marriage. If the court chooses to legalize same-sex marriage, then we demand that, as a part of their ruling, they put provisions in place that protect churches, Christians, Christian-owned businesses, and other religious-based institutions from being sued, forced to participate in, or otherwise facilitate homosexual weddings. BCNN1 is urging the following Christian leaders to get together and make this happen. Who will be the Martin Luther King Jr. of our time?

President Obama isn't the only one who does not line up with the Bible on the issue of homosexuality. Here is what these 2016 presidential candidates and potential candidates said when asked if they would attend a homosexual wedding. (Also, voting in Mitt Romney would have been no better, because he sits on the board of directors of Marriott International which allows their hotels to be used for homosexual weddings.)
