A Congressman died and went to heaven. When he arrived, Saint Peter greeted him warmly: “Welcome, Congressman.”
I tell that funny story to get us thinking about our opportunity to vote for the Kingdom of God, for heaven on earth. The Kingdom is a person, the Lord Jesus. He is more powerful than the devil. Invite Him into your home and the Kingdom of heaven is there as well.
Every family that honors God and prays in the home is making sure that their house is not divided but is filled with the grace, joy and unity of the Kingdom of God in the Person of the Lord Jesus himself.
As our ministry founder, Venerable Patrick Peyton, got the world saying: "The family that prays together stays together."
