Press Release

By Mike Isbell


On Thursday evening, May 11, we all witnessed a move of God’s Spirit through His people at the local National Day of Prayer service held at First Baptist Church of Fernandina Beach. Not only was it a gathering of God’s people from all over Nassau County, but they were also accompanied by their pastors and spiritual leaders.

It was obvious that this event transcended non-essential theological differences, as it was represented by many denominational and non-denominational churches. As a result, there was a spirit of genuine unity. John 17:21 says that people in the world will know that Jesus has been sent by God when they see God’s people in unity or oneness. It was visible Thursday night!

This event also transcended political parties and platforms. One of the participating pastors boldly proclaimed, “we don’t need a red wave or a blue wave to sweep our land – we need a gospel wave to sweep across our nation!”

This event also transcended race and color, which was evidenced by those in attendance. Jesus is the answer for our needs regardless of church preference, political affiliation, race, or color. We are all in need of God’s grace, and only His transforming power can change the hearts of men, women, and children.

Since this was a prayer meeting, men and women leaders in our community addressed many areas of prayer concerns that affect all of us. They instructed us how to pray for government, military, first responders, education, legal system, healthcare, unborn, families, unity in Christ, churches, and pastors. Then local pastors followed their instructions and offered up prayers of intercession for all those serving in these areas.

Before the conclusion of the meeting, an invitation was given for people to join in silent prayer, to pray with one another, or to pray with one of the serving pastors. A love offering was taken up as people were leaving and all the donations went to Set Free By The Sea, a local ministry sharing Jesus with people distressed through life’s crises.
