Join us in prayer for our families, the church, America, and the world. Help us pray for the revival of the family, the revival of the church, and the awakening of the nation.

William Detweiler told of a prison chaplain who did a survey of 1,700 inmates in one institution. He discovered that only one man out of the 1,700 persons came from a home where they had a daily old fashioned family altar -- and later this same man was pardoned because it was found that he was innocent of the crime with which he had been charged.

+ DEVOTIONAL READING: "What Drives Your Life? (Part 9)" from "The Purpose Driven Life," by Rick Warren

My family and I have had morning devotions, or family altar as some people call it, every day ever since my wife, Meriqua, and I were married 30 years ago. We have prayed and read the Bible together as well as other devotional books as a family, and it is the only reason why this family has stayed together, and the only reason why God has blessed our family and used our family in ministry all of these years. We read Ephesians 5 and 6 every morning as it relates to the role of each member of the family and how that we need to put on the whole armor of God to fight against the devil who is seeking to destroy our family and all Christian families, churches, and Christians. So, now after 30 years of doing this in our home, we are opening this up to others who don't have a family to pray with, who don't have a spouse, or who are single by choice, and to encourage all families who are still intact to go back to the family altar and have devotions together every morning. In these devotions, you may hear me deal with a temptation I'm facing in my life, you may hear me rebuke my wife about not doing what she should be doing, or you may hear me get on one of my children's cases about something they're doing. Don't be shocked; this is real life.
