Watch Focus: 70th Anniversary of Victory in Europe

May 8, 2015 marks the complete surrender of the forces of Nazi Germany to the Allies and the end of the Third Reich. We want to offer thanks for the sacrifice of millions who fought this evil, anti-christ creed, and honor those who gave their lives to keep so many nations free. We also want to honor the countless families who saw their loved ones make the ultimate sacrifice. This may be one of the last times that the “greatest generation” who fought in this conflict will be able to gather in numbers at key places so we can honor them. Let us also never forget that six million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust during this period. Offer thanksgiving to the Lord God for victory by the Allies over the evil creed of Nazi Germany and the establishment of peace across Europe, and eventually the world.

We pray for wounded veterans of all past wars, and hold up in prayer members of our armed forces that help keep us free and at peace today. May the valor, courage, and wisdom of men such as Sir William Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, and countless others of that generation continue to inspire our present generation. 
In these days set aside for National Prayer, may God continue to bless America’s freedoms such as speech and religion. May we remain strong to defend and rescue the oppressed as we did seventy years ago.

I Cor. 15:57, “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."

Isa. 58:6-9; 11-12, “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’  If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness… The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In."

Rom. 8:31-39, Ps. 44:5, Zech. 4:6, Ps. 18:32, 2 Cor. 2:14

On May 7 Great Britain held its national general elections. Polls indicate that it will be very close. Pray for this, our closest historical ally, that from these elections leaders will emerge who will honor the biblical, godly values that will keep Britain as a shining light to nations, and that they will stand in strong friendship with Israel. May this be a time of economic and spiritual restoration of America’s closest ally.
