The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible. http://nationaldayofprayer.org/about/
Jesus is involved in the restoration of His Church. Each of us is being compelled to look beyond our personal and local ministry goals and catch a glimpse of Christ’s vision for His whole Church throughout the nations of the world. Our desire is to help establish apostles and prophets as foundational ministries in the Church, and train, activate and facilitate the full restoration of all areas of fivefold ministry. In Ephesians 4:8 and 11, we read that Jesus gave fivefold ministers as gifts to the Church, “And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers.”
These ministry gifts are dear to the heart of God. They are key to His plan. The apostles and prophets are paramount to building the foundation of the Church: “You are being built upon the foundation of apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the Chief Cornerstone” (Eph.2:20). In talking about these ministry gifts, Paul goes on in verse 12 and 13 to write that the purpose of these gifts is “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the Body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.”
As a saint and part of His Church, our desire is to equip you in greater measure, to see you rise above natural limitations and demonstrate His power and authority throughout the earth.
The vision for Shekinah Today was first birthed in Darrel and Cindy’s heart in 1986 shortly after they met. After many years of preparation, cleansing, humbling, refining, and prayer, God released them in 2007 to officially launch Shekinah Today Ministries. Their God-given vision is for a local and global Church, a Family Worship and World Prayer, and Biblical Training Center that will be used to send God’s word to the nations and to help raise up the Glorious Church.
OUR MISSION – IN A UNIQUE FIELD
Faith and Action is America’s only Christian outreach to top-level government officials in Washington, DC located directly across from the U.S. Supreme Court, a block from the U.S. Capitol and 10 minutes from the White House! Our purpose is affect the hearts and minds of America’s public policy makers with Christ’s mandate in the two Great Commandments: Love God With All Your Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength, and Love Your Neighbor As Yourself.
We have very specific ministry targets. We believe such a narrowly targeted effort is the most effective method for accomplishing our mission – to challenge our leaders with biblical truth. We are, therefore, focused on “challenging” 2,604 specific individuals across all three major government branches.
Much of the ministry we do is behind-the-scenes, and must be done very privately due to the positions held by those we minister to. We are very effective in this type of ministry, but also have four core programs that are our main public ministry each year, and often become conversation starters and network builders that further our private ministry.
