A Lighthouse Standing Firm

Hi, prayer warriors, As we join hands and hearts together, linking shields, I want to share a breakthrough moment I had yesterday. For almost a year I have been struggling with negative chatter from the enemy, climbing my mountain with what felt like cement block shoes but forging forward and persevering in faith. I know by faith that God hears us, loves our loved ones more than we can imagine and will bless what He has promised in His time. But I have felt like there is a big wall of separation keeping my heart from believing what my head […]

The Value of Keeping Covenant

There’s a particular moment I will never forget. My husband and I were stationed with the Navy in San Diego and we attended a chapel service where we heard a missionary family sing, “Whatever it takes to draw closer to you, Lord; that’s what I’ll be willing to do.” That song struck my heart and dug deep into my soul as I sang along in my heart. In the years that followed my beloved and I followed the Lord and our commitment to Christ as best we knew how. We enjoyed a good, happy life, even though there were many […]

Living

This is more than just mere existence. It is taking what you have and learning how to make the most of it. It is breathing in what is around you and appreciating every minute of it. Living is seeing its Author and knowing all things work together for good to them who love Him. Living is having both ups and downs and knowing each are two sides of the same coin. Each has their purpose in developing character. Living can take what the world calls dirt and turn it into the potting soil of faith for greater things. It is […]

   USA CA: CK is praising God for the wonderful trip taken to Yellowstone. “I felt God’s presence in the beautiful scenery and had a wonderful time with the kids. Yellowstone truly is breathtaking and I am thankful for the prayers that helped get me there and back safely and without any issues. My husband was in contact with me via text the entire trip there. He expressed concern for our safety and wished us a good trip. I’m still standing.” CK is praising God for a wonderful weekend with her family. “They came to visit from L.A. and it […]

Have you ever had an event or series of events that were so frustrating that you wanted to pull your hair out by the roots? Of course you have. At the end when the circumstance was resolved have you seen the hand of God in the process or result?

Because we usually print a lot of materials to prepare for the conference we needed to have the […]

Scripture Prayers For Covenant Keepers

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 11, 2018

Proverbs 18:21 states that there is life and death in the power of the tongue. The tongue can be used for good or evil. We can speak about our bad circumstances or we can speak God’s Word over the circumstances. We encourage speaking God’s Word out loud daily. By speaking God’s Word the mind will be renewed, the spirit man will be strengthened and faith will grow. “Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17 KJV) In the beginning as we speak God’s Word over our families and homes we may feel like we’re being […]

The Benefits of a Long Term Stand

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • August 11, 2018

I want to encourage you in your stand for your marriage, especially those who feel that it has been too long, that it’s never going to happen, that I am still hurting (all lies of the enemy which can lull us into a state of passivity and complacency making us inert and inactive and even, for some, wanting to give up). You need to realize that the long term stand can be a place where much growth and maturity can come when we allow the Lord to work in us first. During World War II several countries chose to remain […]

We had the great delight of concluding our annual CKI “Families Are Forever” Conference at the Sunday morning service of Steele Creek Church of Charlotte in Charlotte, NC. During the service the pastor welcomed our group and explained to his congregation that we were people who really understood covenant and were living it out, all of us standing for covenant marriage, some standing faithfully for decades. As the service ended the pastor asked for anyone who would like to come up for prayer to come and line up across the stage with their full prayer team ready to receive them. […]

Be Hospitable To One Another Without Complaint

  • August 7, 2018

A few years ago my pastor preached a series of stories from the Old Testament and the New Testament on the gift of hospitality. It truly was a blessing to review those true stories of old. Then the pastor asked a few people to share their personal story of ministering this gift in either their homes or elsewhere. I resisted sharing the story that came to mind quickly because it was a difficult one, BUT GOD (!) kept nudging me until I agreed. After all of our stories were shared from the pulpit, a man in the congregation said he […]

Overcoming Evil with Love “You have heard that it has been said, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, that you resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue you at the law, and take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. And whosoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him two. Give to him that asks you, and from him that would borrow of you turn not away. You […]
