It's Time To Pray! - Tuesdays (see times below)

It's Time To Pray!

“Prayer is the key to all that Jesus is willing to do. The day and hour demands that those who still know the mercy of Jesus Christ begin to plead for our nation. When prayer turns to a heartfelt cry for freedom and deliverance, God will hear and answer. I believe that God is willing to show His mercy to us once again, in spite of how far we have gotten away from truth as a society.” - Pastor Carter Conlon

We invite you to join with ItsTimeToPray.org on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:30 PM EST (4:00-5:30 PST). You will be compelled to pray as we share the prayer requests coming in LIVE from all over the world.

Veterans Crisis Line

Confidential help for Veterans and families

If you are a Veteran in crisis or concerned about one, connect with caring, qualified responders for confidential help. Many of them are Veterans themselves.

They are there anytime, day or night – 24/7

 

The National Suicide Hotline Designation Act, signed into law in 2020, authorized 988 as the new three-digit number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. All telephone service providers in the U.S. must activate the number no later than July 2022; however, many providers will choose to implement the service sooner.

Once a Veteran's telephone service provider makes 988 available, Veterans can use this new option by dialing 988 and pressing 1 to contact the Veterans Crisis Line.
