National Day of Prayer

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” 2 Corinthians 3:17 (NKJV)


Kinship Christian Radio will air a live broadcast from the 2021 National Day of Prayer event on Thursday evening, May 6th at 7:00 pm on the theme, “Lord Pour Out Your Love, Life and Liberty.” This two-hour special will feature comments and features, along with times of prayer and worship from guests including Anne Graham Lotz, Andrew Palau, Greg Laurie, Tony Evans, Nick Hall, Shane and Shane and many others.


There are also about a dozen events taking place all across the Kinship listening area for the National Day of Prayer. You can find those here:


That verse above catches my ear because I have been praying the fruits of the Spirit over our nation for over a year now. What began at 38th and Chicago in Minneapolis last year spread anger, hate, destruction, and chaos across our state, the nation, and the whole world. It was as if the powers and principalities in the heavenly realms had concentrated in that intersection in that city and spread outward from that epicenter in a swirling maelstrom of all that is unholy. 


It was –in many ways– shocking. 


At first, I didn’t know what to to pray. But then it seemed the only thing I could pray into that situation was love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.


I went to the intersection of 38th and Chicago on June 19th last year and found the Holy Spirit at work there. I found worship and praise and people being baptized in a livestock watering tank right there on the street. I found white people and black people loving and forgiving each other. I found riot turned into revival at ground-zero of a global spiritual battle. 


We didn’t hear much about that on the national news media, but Jay Rudolph reported on it on Kinship Christian radio, I wrote a blog post about it ( and numerous Christian websites and news outlets covered the story. That revival is still going on. The people involved have not ceased their efforts and many souls continue to be saved. 


So, the Spirit of the Lord does not slumber. He does not sleep. That same Spirit that hovered over the waters at creation, that God breathed into Adam when He formed him from the dust of the ground, that raised Jesus from the dead, that was given to us and is the seal and guarantee of our inheritance in heaven is still moving and working in our world today.


Jesus is still changing the world. 


So, yes, LORD, pour out your Holy Spirit on us, on our families, on our neighborhoods and towns, on our states, over all our nation and all the world! Bring many souls to freedom in Christ Jesus! Draw many souls to yourself LORD, that they would no longer walk in fear and darkness and hate but bring love, life, and liberty to all! AMEN!




Today’s Praise

I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself. Ephesians 1:19-23 (NLT)
