Glimpse of President Trump’s Joint Session of Congress Speech
A new voice is at the helm of leadership over America. A voice of hope and inspiration is once again echoing out from the halls of Washington. In his recent speech to a Joint Session of Congress, President Donald Trump shared many words of both inspiration and hope.
Looking back on the encouraging words that President Trump shared we can see the clear perspective of optimism that the President has for this moment in history, and the days ahead. “Each American generation passes the torch of truth, liberty and justice, in an unbroken chain all the way down to the present. That torch is now in our hands and we will use it to light up the world.” The President continued to share, “I’m here tonight to deliver a message of unity and strength and it is a message deeply delivered from my heart.”
There has certainly been a shift since President Donald Trump has taken office. “What we are witnessing today is the renewal of the American spirit. Our allies will find, that America is once again ready to lead.” This isn’t a direction that the President can accomplish on his own. He invites everyone to join him on this charge. “I am asking all citizens to embrace this renewal of the American spirit. I am asking all members of Congress in dreaming big, and bold, and daring things for our country. I am asking everyone watching tonight, to seize this moment, believe in yourselves, believe in your future, and believe once more, in America.”
In addition, President Trump also recognized Carryn Owens, the wife of Navy Seal William “Ryan” Owens who was killed during a January operation in Yemen. While recognizing Carryn and Ryan’s sacrifice for the nation’s freedom, the President reportedly held a two minute standing ovation. “For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom.”
We are exceedingly grateful for Ryan’s sacrifice and his sacrifice for our nation. Our prayers go out to Carryn Owens and all of her family. It is such a difficult pain to go through a time like this, to lose a loved one. But, it is a reassurance of courage to know that his loss was not in vain.

Repealing 20,000 Pages of Obamacare with 123 Pages of the American Health Care Act
As President Trump and his cabinet continue on through the first 100 days of the Trump Administration, they are now focusing their efforts on repealing The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obama care. The present substitute is the American Health Care Act. There are a few significant differences between the two. The American Health Care Act is much shorter; being only 123 pages, compared to the Obamacare compilation of 20,000+ pages. Fox News spoke with House Ways and Means Committee Chairman, Kevin Brady and House Energy and Committee Chairman, Greg Walden, to discuss the coming changes.
Chairman Brady points out how the new bill to replace Obamacare is set to replace two major principles: 1) “To restore state health care. Get it out of Washington”, and 2) “Restore the free market… give individuals the power and freedom to choose the plan that is right for them”. In addition, Chairman Brady explains how tax credits will immediately be in effect. “…that ranges in price from $2,000 to $14,000 a year depends upon their age, and their family, and with that, they can buy affordable plans that are approved and certified in the state that they’re in.” No longer will citizens have to choose what is given to them, but will be able to choose what they feel best meets their needs. “These are plans that they need and can use, not the plans that Washington has been dictating to them.” Chairman Brady continues to explain how tax breaks that will be offered to those who are leading small businesses, as well as those who may be in between jobs, or someone is getting their first healthcare plan.
For those who are currently receiving Medicaid, or those about to, Chairman Walden describes how Medicaid will be effected. “What we want to do is restore power to the States, put Medicaid on a budget and get back to where you have a doctor-patient relationship…” He continued to share, “we want to get back to where our governors, and our states, and our local governments can innovate with those most in need; those on Medicaid…”
The dangerous deciding factor of Obamacare was that it was originally deemed a “tax”. It’s important to remember that the power to tax is the power to destroy. The introduction of this new Act is breaking that power to destroy that the Federal Government had over all of America. We need to pray for all of our leaders who have a part in making this transition a reality. The good news is that all of this is changing. You can read the American Health Care Act as it is set to replace Obamacare. Hear the full comments from Capitol Hill about this developing story, download the bill for yourself, and so much more.

Lou Engle Calls the Church to a 3 Day Esther Fast; To Break Witchcraft Against President Trump, The Empowering of Women, and to Stand with Israel
The Book of Esther chronicles how a plot to destroy the Israelites was created by a man named Haman. But, because of Mordecai, 3 days of fasting and praying, and Esther’s willingness to stand before the king on behalf of her people, the plot was not only stopped, but turned on the head of Haman. The Jews continue to celebrate this moment in their history as they celebrate Purim. With this history in mind, co-founder of The Call, Lou Engle has called for 3 days of fasting and prayer.
Engle recently had a dream where a godly rising of women in American was occuring. As Engle describes, “I experienced a life-changing dream where I saw a nation-wide Esther movement arising that alone could break a major spiritual power of death.” Patricia King also shared a similar word prophetically when she talked about ‘virtuous women arising in 2017’.
There is a lot of witchcraft targeted at our President. We must stand in prayer and in support of him and the many decisions that he must make, along with his cabinet members. Join the Body of Christ as we enter into these three days of fasting from sundown on March 8th, through Saturday evening, March 11th. Hear more about the events leading up to Lou Engle’s call to fast and pray, the history on Purim, and so much more.

PROPHECY! Brigitte Gabriel Prophecies President Trump’s Presidency in 2015
As multiple prophetic voices have pointed to this year being a breakthrough year for women, we look back and remember how Brigitte Gabriel prophetically described who the next president would be. At the 2015 CPAC Conference she highlighted some attributes about who would model the next Presidency. Her words have appeared to be fully realized in the Trump Administration.
“This is very important. That whoever we’re going to elect is going to be somebody who is strong on national security, who’s going to put America first, who is going to make America great again, who’s going to send a strong message to the world. The minute he walks into office, whoever we elect, that the world is going to realize, that this person, you’re not going to mess with because he could care less about what you think, what the U.N. thinks, what the world thinks…”
This is exactly what President Trump has walked out and clearly demonstrated since he has taken office. Hear more about this pivotal moment in history, see Gabriel expressing these powerful words, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: Values Voters Summit and Washington.

President Trump’s Speech on the USS Gerald R Ford, Newly Commissioned Aircraft Carrier
President Trump is continuing his words of hope, inspiration, and encouragement as he recently visited the soon to be commissioned USS Gerald R. Ford. It is the newest of the Navy’s aircraft carriers, and as President Trump describes it as , “a monument to American might that will provide the strength necessary to ensure peace”. The President quickly honored the Ford family, the many men and women who took part in the construction of the Navy ship, as well as the men and women of our military and U.S. Navy. The USS Gerald R. Ford is no small vessel. Its size is comparable to nearly 4.5 acres of land, will host 4500 personnel and carry 70 aircraft.
President Trump caste a hopeful vision for our nation’s military as he described the advancements and equipment that is coming to our many service members. “We will have the finest equipment in the world; planes, ships and everything else. We are going to have very soon the finest equipment in the world. We will give our military the tools you need to prevent war and if required to fight war and only do one thing, you know what that is, win…” The President also continued to point to the new aircraft carrier and its ability to fight wars. “This great aircraft carrier provides essential capabilities to keep us safe from terrorism and take the fight to the enemy for many years in the future.”Considering this important reality in war fighting, President Trump quotes the Commander of the US Pacific Fleet during World War II, Admiral Nimitz. “It is the function of the Navy to carry the war to the enemy so that will not be fought on US soil.”
As the President paints a hopeful future, he details the grim reality that the US Military is currently in regarding its size. “Our Navy is the smallest it’s been…since World War I.” But he has plans to take the Navy to new heights. “I just spoke with Navy and industry leaders and have discussed my plans to undertake a major expansion of our entire Navy fleet including having the 12 carrier Navy we need.” As the President continues to describe, it will be the American military that will lead the way. “American ships will sail the seas. American planes will soar the skies. American workers will build our fleets.”
It is so exciting see the President sharing such hopeful words as well as supporting our nation’s military and the military supporting him.

NY Met Tim Tebow Making Headlines, and he just arrived to Spring Training
Tim Tebow is once again in the media headlines. Some may not be aware, but this time it isn’t wearing a football jersey. Tim Tebow has arrived at the New York Met’s spring training. But, when he addressed the media, he shared what he wanted to be remembered most for, and it wasn’t as a ball player.
As WPTV is reporting, Tebow doesn’t want to be remembered for his athletic skills on the field. He wants to be remembered for how he lives his life, off the field. As one who has spent much of his life ministering to others around the world, as well as experiencing some of sports most elite arenas, he shares these inspiring words. “So much of handing sports is handing pressure. Well what pressure do you have if you’re 0-12, and you’re at the plate, versus someone that is fighting for their life? Versus someone that we picked up on the side of the street in Haiti because they were cripple. Or they’re not wanted, or they’re thrown into the garbage? How do you compare those things? For me there’s not a comparison.” He continues, “It’s not how I want to be known in my life; it’s not as a football player, as a baseball player, as someone that worked hard to accomplish those things. I want my life to be so much more than that.” He points to what he does want his life to be remembered for. “I want to be someone that was known for brining faith, hope, and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. And that is something that is a life calling for me and so it’s so much bigger than sports.”
With that being said, he isn’t against sports because it is through this opportunity that is able to have the impact that he has. “But I am so grateful for sports because it’s given me a platform to be able to share and love and care for people all over the world. So, I wouldn’t trade that for anything.” Many have watched Tebow’s journey from the NCAA, to the NFL, and now to a possible debut in the MLB. Continue to pray for Tebow as he continues to reach many with the Gospel. See his inspiring comments and so much more. Greg and John shared in this segment.
