Cathy and I were honored to be a part of the Return, a Spirit-empowered Solemn Assembly on September 26. It drew over 100,000 people along with Franklin Graham's Prayer March 2020. It was a powerful time of repentance, reconciliation, restoration, reformation, revival, and a historic day of returning to God that was broadcast LIVE worldwide on TV and Online.

This was a once in a lifetime moment for countless millions around the world to call upon God, pray for their nation, America and the world. I was honored to pray and introduce Nicky Cruz with Pat Boone.

Franklin Graham Prayer March 2020
Along with tens of thousands, Cathy and I were blessed to be a part of the Franklin Graham Prayer March 2020. The1.8 mile march, led from the the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol with 7 stops for focused prayer. Over 3.8 million people watched from 57 countries Online as millions viewed LIVE broadcast. A highlight was a surprise visit by Vice President Mike Pence & his wife Karen, urging all gathered to persevere in their prayers for America.

“Father, our country is in trouble, and we need your help,” he said. “I think we’re at a crucial point in this country. We’re that close to losing our nation.”

AIR FLIGHTS CANCELLED - STILL ZOOMING FOR JESUS
Despite canceled flights and closed borders, God has opened doors to continue international ministry traveling through cyberspace. We don't even have to stop to go through security!

With Zoom, You Tube & Facebook Live, we've touched 4 continents in the last 90 days. Your prayers are keeping us on the front line, even when the front line is "Online".

It was exciting to join over 100 Pasotors in India last week, we have real answers for those battling addiction.

As isolation and hopelessness have pushed people toward substance abuse, increasing overdose deaths, suicides and despair have taken their toll. Cathy and I, with Global Teen Challenge, are positioned strategically to offer HOPE to those in most desperate need. All restrictions aside, we are still engaged in ministry and evangelism through Zoom chapels, video meetings, intercession, fasting, prayer, and casting vision for Teen Challenge.


Our Tuesday/Thursday FACEBOOK LIVE Prayer & Praise video streams with Teen Challenge worldwide, chapels and videos have had nearly 100,000 views by TC family and friends, partners, staff, and students around the world. Where 2 or 3 gather in His name, He is THERE, even on the INTERNET. By God’s grace, we are reaching out, speaking HOPE to discouragement, PROMISE into despair, and PRAYING TOGETHER to our God who hears and answers prayer.

 
Cancel Culture or
Coward Culture
 

I'd normally question this but hey, it's 2020!

"EVANGELISM
MINUTE"

At a time when the culture wars are raging & the secular community has declared war on the community of faith, Cancel Culture is attempting to silence truth; but the greatest need is a to overcome COWARD CULTURE.

The greatest contagion is
not just Covid-19, it is the contagion of FEAR.
God's LOVE is the CURE.
TAKE HOPE VIRAL!
Bern

Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul:
Matthew10:34.

Do not think I came to bring peace on the earth.  I did not come to bring peace, but a sword
Matthew 10:28

 

At a time when the culture wars are raging & the secular community has declared war on the community of faith, Cancel Culture is attempting to silence truth; celebrating perversion as heroism, murder as mercy and sin as a basic human right.

There is no power in cancel culture, unless coward culture allows it to prevail.

Mat10:28  Jesus says, Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

My greatest concern is not the volume of the culture,  it is the silence of the pulpit and apathy in the church.

vs 32 everyone who confesses me before man I will confess before my father who is in heaven but whoever denies me before men I will deny him before my father who is in Heaven
To fail to share His love is to deny His sacrifice

Almost 100 years ago, Scottish evangelist George McLeod said it so well when he wrote:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I simply argue that the cross be raised again, at the center of the marketplace as well as on the steeple of the church. I am recovering the claim that Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles but between two thieves on a town garbage heap at a crossroad of politics and culture so cosmopolitan that they had to write His title in Hebrew and in Latin and Greek.

It was the kind of place where cynics talk smut, thieves curse, and soldiers gamble, because that is where He died, and that is what He died about. That is where Christ’s own ought to be, and that is what we ought to be about.

That is what real Evangelism is about
We already have the COMMAND, lets go Change the World.

PRAYER REQUESTS

PRAYER

FOCUS

 


Again I say
unto you,
That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done
for them of
my Father which is in heaven.

 

Never in my lifetime have I seen such a confluence of disasters in my nation, severe weather-hurricanes, tornadoes and forest fires, civil unrest and racial violence. At a time when we desperately need to cry out for God's mercy, continuing human efforts fail to address the real issue. We need God's touch on our land. We need to continue to follow through with all that we prayed for at THE RETURN.

1) Hurricane Delta

We begin this hurricane prayer request with praise. Greg Dill reports that TC Louisiana has fared well following the deluge released by Hurricane Delta. It blasted a bevy of gulf states with heavy rains in what we are hoping is the last damaging storm of the furious 2020 hurricane season. Delta left almost 360,000 homes and businesses in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi without power. The storm system spawned 10 tornado reports from the Gulf Coast to the Carolinas. At least two tornadoes in north and central Georgia on Saturday injured two people, according to the National Weather Service.

2) Cathy-torn ligament, fractured radius

Please pray for Cathy. As some of you may have seen when we ministered in Michigan in September, when I fell off the platform while we were singing, I landed on Cathy. She fell and tore a ligament in her hand and fractured her radius. She is in a brace and will proceed with exercises, following up with the doctor and praying for God's continued healing

3) Novel Coronavirus FOCUS

A special thank you to all of you joined with us to pray with Pres. Donald Trump and many congressional staff and White House staffers that were infected with the coronavirus. He is out of the hospital and has been diagnosed Covid free.

Continue to focus our prayers for key leaders that are still struggling, Please pray for Pastor Greg Laurie in California and and Rev. John Hagee This virus is no respecter of denomination, wealth or political party.

We know many of you are struggling, others battling. Please Email us at this link with your prayer requests so that we can continue to pray for you. Our God hears and answers prayer.

4) Global VIEW: Novel Coronavirus

Please pray for those at risk, infected and affected by the Novel Coronavirus. (COVID-19), As the world battles Coronavirus with over 38 million infections in 196 nations and over a million deaths, please pray for leaders as they adopt and adapt to emergency measures, travel restrictions, and quarantines to stem the spread of the virus.
World Health Organization Novel Coronavirus DASHBOARD

While we are still praying for the United States, there's a great deal of concern about the surge in cases around the world. 326,201 cases were reported yesterday, highlighted by 55,342 in India. Please pray for virus hot spots like the UK, Spain, and Italy. In addition to that, Latin America and the Caribbean marked 10 million cases Saturday and with more than 360,000 deaths, the region is the worst hit in terms of fatalities, according to official figures.

Lord have mercy and grant your wisdom. On October 13, more than 7,682,000 people in the United States have been infected with the coronavirus up 600,000 in the last 3 weeks. Over 215,000 have died. That is a delicate balance between increased testing and failure of people to recognize social distancing instructions. Please pray as local governments make decisions concerning the reopening of schools. Lord protect us all from decisions based on political agendas rather than public health and safety.

Please pray for our friends, partners and sacrificial ministry assets, who are sharing the Word at the epicenter of this pandemic. Pray for supernatural power, protection, and miracles to follow wherever they go. Please also pray for God’s wisdom for the scientists who are working to develop a cure and vaccine.

4) PRAY FOR THE US

As we write there are over 1200 active forest fires in the western part of the United States. A heat wave has contributed to dry conditions accompanied by poor deforestation and high winds which are consuming huge amounts of territory. By God's grace, we are not aware of any Teen Challenge centers that have been affected. There have been some evacuations but God has protected our centers. Please pray for those being impacted by these fires.

5) Pray for Director of Costa Rica & El Salvador

Please continue to pray for the director of TC Costa Rica and El Salvador who is now home and recovering from Covid-19.

6) Pray for Substance Abuse Worldwide

In an unintended consequence of COVID 19 lock-downs, 40 states have reported increases in drug overdoses Pray for 270 million addicts worldwide. May God grant Teen Challenge and the church, supernatural strategies for life change. As many heard in the discussion about the European Union response on our Thursday Facebook Live… The use of harm mitigation is cutting down disease but sacrificing hope. Methadone, drug substitution, and rehabilitation are still short of the real promise that God offers in Jesus Christ--new creation and life transformation! I do not stand up and say "Hi my name is Bernie and I am a drug addict." My name is Bernie, I am CHILD of the KING!

GOD HELP US TO STOP THIS DEATH MARCH of despair as
270 million people worldwide struggle with substance abuse.
Please also pray as overdoses are on the rise during this difficult time.

3.6 million people die from their addiction each year.
7 die every minute
420 die every hour
10,080 die every day

Global Teen Challenge is on a mission mobilizing people and resources to put HOPE within reach of every addict.
GOD SEND YOUR HOPE! MAKE US HOPE DEALERS!

7) Ministry, Reconciliation and Solutions

We are praying that God will grant supernatural solutions to the violence, destruction, and attacks taking place across our country but even more importantly destroying some of the most vulnerable communities of our nation. People who managed to survive COVID-19 and were barely keeping their businesses open have now lost them to the violence in some of the most poverty-stricken communities.

Lord, send your hope to those whose life savings and lifework have been devastated by violent mobs shouting "burn it down, burn it down." Jesus, please send the peace that only You can give and show us how to minister in this critical hour.

8) For Leaders

“First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
1 Timothy 2:1-4 NASB

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we can ask or think according to the power that works within us, to him be the glory in the church and in Jesus Christ to all generations forever and ever. AMEN
Ephesians 3:20-21

10) FINANCIAL NEEDS

We appreciate those who pray for us and we want you to know that we are praying for you. In these unprecedented days, we are serving God and He never changes. We are praying for God's blessing on you and your family, your health, your jobs and your finances.
Our God is faithful and is the One who loved you so much that He sent his only Son. His Word says "No good gift will He withhold from those who walk uprightly." He is our source! Our hope and our trust is in Him.
