Walk the Narrow Path
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. (Matthew 7:13)
Words We Never Want to Hear
The Shock of Deception!
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' " (Matthew 22-23)
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock..."
What You Do Matters!
Enter in as a child with humility and a repentant heart.
Be obedient to seek, hear, and do the good Word of God...daily.
Stay on the narrow path with Jesus.
Be ready for His return!

Prayer for President Trump
Father, I pray the precious Blood of Jesus over my President, his family, his staff and advisors. May Your angels watch over them and keep them in all their ways today and the days to come. (Psalm 91:11)
May the Angel of the LORD encamp around the President and deliver him from every evil. May You deliver him from all his fears and save him out of all his troubles. (Psalm 34:4-7)
I declare that no weapon formed against President Trump shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against him in judgment he shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me, says the LORD. (Isaiah 54:17)
God says: "Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm." (Psalm 105:15)
I pray that You would hide President Trump from the “secret plots from the rebellion of the workers of iniquity, who sharpen their tongue like a sword.” (Psalm 64:2) Let their net that they have hidden catch themselves, into that very destruction let them fall.” (Psalm 35:8)
Keep the President from the snares the enemy has laid for him. Protect him from those who seek to destroy him. Give him Your safe way of escape. (Psalm 141:9-10)
Bless this President, LORD, and surround him with your shield of favor and mercy. (Psalm 5:12 & 32:10) Keep him healthy and give him strength all his days.
The President and his staff “commit their works unto the LORD, and their thoughts shall be established.” (Proverbs 16:3) Father, give President Trump Your wisdom. Help him to make right decisions in all that he needs to do today.
In Jesus name and for your glory Lord.
Did you know?
When President Trump was asked what he wanted people to remember about him, he said, “I want to be known as the President who prayed the most.”
Below are three current news feeds from the White House.

Homeland Security Chief Challenges Democrats to Help Improve Conditions at Border
Following a surge of illegal immigration at the southern border in the first half of 2019, U.S. immigration officials asked Congress to help address the problem—both by closing loopholes in our system and by better funding Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan told Congress on Thursday that the answer to troubling stories of overcrowding of illegal immigrants at the border is to increase money for ICE detention in the interior, putting the burden back on the Democrats most vocal in complaining about the conditions,” Stephen Dinan reports for The Washington Times.
“We requested thousands more beds than we got,” Acting Secretary McAleenan said. “That’s why we’re experiencing that backup at the border.”

“The real reason Democrats aren’t impeaching Mr. Trump is because they don’t think they can win the political argument that he committed impeachable offenses. They bet everything on Mr. Mueller’s Russia collusion probe, and he and they came up empty,” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes. “Everything else they’re doing is for show.”
“On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to land and walk on the Moon. Through most of human history, such a feat represented the unattainable. Yet attain it we did,” space policy expert Edward Hudgins writes in the Washington Examiner. “Going to the Moon was also an affirmation of the values of freedom and liberty. The political goal of Apollo was to demonstrate to the world that an open, democratic society could achieve more than our closed, totalitarian Soviet rival.”
“As America prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, The New York Times is busy celebrating the Soviet space program and bashing America’s,” Karol Markowicz writes in the New York Post. “
A Times op-ed Thursday highlighted how the Soviet Union was oh-so-diverse, sending women and people of color into space long before stuffy, old America got around to doing the same.” Of course, the Soviets promoted women and minorities to prop up their international image while torturing and executing dissidents and starving their own people. “It’s a tedious habit of modern-day liberals to examine and judge and lament all American history.”
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte gave President Trump the perfect D-Day commemorative at the White House yesterday, William Davis writes in The Daily Caller. “Rutte presented Trump with an American flag that was on the first U.S. ship to land in Normandy as part of the D-Day invasion that occurred on June 6, 1944 during World War II. The bullet-riddled flag was purchased at an auction three years ago by Dutch collector Bert Kreuk, who later felt compelled to return the flag to the U.S.”
Drug Overdose Deaths Drop in U.S. for First Time Since 1990
“Three decades of ever-escalating deaths from drug overdoses in the United States may have come to an end, according to preliminary government data made public Wednesday. Total drug overdose deaths in America declined by around 5 percent last year, the first drop since 1990,” The New York Times reports.
“The decline was due almost entirely to a dip in deaths from prescription opioid painkillers . . . President Trump made the opioid crisis one of the health care priorities in his 2016 campaign message.”
The President declared the opioid epidemic a national public health emergency in 2017. Click here to read more.
Rather than addressing the causes of our border crisis, “obstructionists in Washington have spent the better part of a decade chasing down news cameras and pointing fingers, rather than proposing workable legislation,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) writes in Fox News.
“Bottom line: We owe it to our Border Patrol officials, the American people, and earnest asylum seekers to put the talking points aside and give them the resources they are asking for.”
“The Department of Justice announced the arrest of nearly two dozen MS-13 gang members this week who are connected to horrific murders carried out in California. Victims were hacked to death with machetes and in some instances, had their hearts ripped out,” Katie Pavlich reports for Townhall.
All told, 19 of the 22 individuals charged were in the United States illegally. “California, a sanctuary state that refuses to work with Immigration and Customs enforcement, protected them. According to the indictment, they engaged in crime sprees spanning multiple states.”
“With 224,000 jobs created last month, June’s jobs report brought good news for American workers – more jobs and higher wages. Simply put, Congress, working with the Trump Administration, is bringing real results to the American people,” Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) writes in Overton County News.
“Americans are enjoying one of the lowest unemployment rates in 50 years.”
“Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is viewed more favorably than any member of the so-called ‘squad’ of freshman Democratic congresswomen, according to a new poll,” Amber Athey writes in The Daily Caller. “’
The Squad’ gained more attention last week when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried to diminish their influence in the Democratic Party. Its members responded by implying that Pelosi is racist and intentionally attacking women of color.”
President Trump's Asylum Action Will Help Ease the Border Crisis
“This week, the Trump administration continued its efforts to bring order to the southern border by imposing new rules on the asylum-seeking process. This is what was needed,” the Washington Examiner editorial board writes.
Under the new rule, an alien who enters or attempts to enter the United States across the southern border, but who passed through other countries on the way without applying for protections from persecution or torture, will be ineligible for asylum in America.
Our asylum laws were “not supposed to be an invitation to unlimited economic migration. But that is how the law is currently functioning, with Central Americans making their way here by the tens of thousands every month. They have learned exactly how to push the system's buttons in order to secure long-term permission to be inside the U.S., and this is why detention centers near the border are overflowing.”
Meanwhile, Democrats in Congress have “shown no sense of urgency to fix the problem.” Click here to read more.
“If the USMCA were brought to the floor of the House for a vote, it would pass overwhelmingly. Yet, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) continues to slow-walk the ratification process. She can’t take yes for an answer because too many in her party only want to say no,” Rep. Ron Estes (R-KS) writes in The Hill. “The sad reality is too many in Pelosi’s party would gladly hand America a loss if it means denying President Trump a win.”
“Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) scolded a Google executive Tuesday, saying that Congress’ patience with Google’s monopoly is running thin, and that it’s ‘time for accountability,’” Sean Moran reports for Breitbart. “Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) asked Google vice president of government affairs and public policy Karan Bhatia if he would submit to an independent, third-party audit of its content moderation practices, to which Bhatia said no.”
“NAFTA, which was approved and has been in place since 1994, was written before many of the digital technologies that drive our 21st century global economy, such as cloud computing and online commerce, even existed,” business leader James Brett writes in the New Hampshire Business Review. “Fortunately, our leaders in Congress have the opportunity to take an important step to bolster U.S. exports and drive continued economic growth by approving the new US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).”
President Trump's Immigration Deal with Mexico is Working
“The Democrats have underestimated President Trump yet again. His bilateral immigration deal with Mexico is already proving to be far more effective than his critics had predicted,” former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer writes in the Washington Examiner.
“With Democrats in Congress still refusing to provide the necessary resources for border security despite the massive surge in illegal immigration that has taken place in recent months, Trump turned to Mexico as an unlikely partner to help get the humanitarian and national security crisis under control.”
The results speak for themselves. “Thanks to Mexico’s deployment of National Guard troops to intercept migrants on their way to the U.S. border, the number of illegal immigrants apprehended at the border declined significantly in June.”

“Two of the country’s staunchest big tech critics are asking the Federal Trade Commission to investigate social media companies’ perceived censorship practices,” Chris White writes in The Daily Signal. “Facebook, Google, and Twitter exercise lots of influence on Americans and they also use their tools to censor some content while amplifying others,” Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) wrote in a letter Monday to the Federal Trade Commission.
“U.S. factory output rose by more than expected in June on a solid gain in motor-vehicle production, suggesting American manufacturing is regaining a foothold,” Christopher Condon and Reade Pickert report for Bloomberg. “The data, coming on the heels of better-than-projected retail sales figures earlier Tuesday, add to signs the economy is holding up amid steady gains in national employment and incomes.”
“The Trump administration is working on multiple fronts to investigate and combat a rising tide of anti-Semitism in America that top officials warned is spreading across the country via a network of far left, anti-Israel activists, who seek to mainstream hatred against Jews at the nation's college campuses and elsewhere,” Adam Kredo reports for The Washington Free Beacon.
“In open defiance of the law, both [Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi] and [former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton] have published guides for illegal immigrants who have already been ordered deported by a judge. These guides show illegal immigrants how they can avoid lawful deportation orders,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd writes in Fox News. “Powerful people are intent on upending the rule of law. They would rather see the fabric that made our society the envy of the world torn to shreds, traded for personal power and political gain.”

On behalf of our country, President Trump receives a piece of American history
President Donald J. Trump welcomed Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte to the White House today, where the President accepted an incredible gift.
“Today, on behalf of the American people, I will receive an American flag that flew aboard a ship carrying the first waves of United States service members to land in Normandy,” President Trump said. “Seventy-five years after that momentous day,” this great piece of American history is “back home where it belongs.”
Watch: “It is my honor to welcome this great American flag back home.”
This 48-Star banner is an important symbol of perhaps the most storied military victory for the free world. On June 6, 1944, the flag President Trump received today flew aboard Landing Craft Control 60 as it approached Normandy. The ship was commanded by a young Navy lieutenant, two days shy of his 27th birthday, named Howard Vander Beek.
“Amid treacherous German minefields, raging winds, and rough seas, Lieutenant Vander Beek and his crew led an astonishing 19 waves of American troops and equipment to those very, very dangerous beaches,” the President explained. “Through it all, this flag soared proudly above the waters of the English Channel, announcing the arrival of our American warriors.”
After the D-Day mission was complete, Lt. Vander Beek carried the flag with him through the end of the war. It stayed in his possession until he passed away in 2014.
Today, this same flag—which still bears scars from German gunfire and stains from American blood—is being returned home, where it will be on display in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.
“It will always be a reminder of the supreme sacrifice of our warriors, and the beautiful friendship between the Dutch and the American people,” President Trump said.
That close partnership continues today, as the United States and the Netherlands work to meet security challenges head-on. Whether it’s efforts to defeat ISIS or support NATO's forward presence in the Baltics and Poland, both nations’ forces stand together.

Team USA Special Olympic athletes visit the White House
Athletes who represented America at the 2019 Special Olympics World Games visited the Oval Office today, where they were greeted by President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and Second Lady Karen Pence.
“What you have done is incredible,” the President told them. “All those medals.”
The Vice President and Second Lady have been heavily involved with supporting the Special Olympics under President Trump. The President asked the Second Lady herself to lead the U.S. delegation at the World Games.
“This is probably the highest honor I will ever have as Second Lady,” she said.
“You make us so proud—not just for your athletic prowess, but for the way you represent our country and the way you reach out to other nations and other athletes.”

American workers have waited long enough
“NAFTA’s shortcomings were evident when signed,” then-Sen. Barack Obama said on the campaign trail in 2008. “We must now amend the agreement to fix them.”
He didn’t. Instead, Washington continued its long tradition of paying lip service to American workers—and then turning around and standing up for global capital instead.
President Donald J. Trump kept his promise. Now it’s time for Congress to keep theirs.
Last November, President Trump joined our North American allies in signing the new U.S.–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA), a trade deal that modernizes NAFTA while securing stronger protections for American labor. Last month, Mexico’s legislature became the first to overwhelmingly pass the new deal into law. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau traveled to Washington the very next day, urging Democrat leaders in Congress to join President Trump in making USMCA a reality.
American workers have waited long enough for Washington to fix NAFTA. “That outdated trade deal has hurt middle-class Americans, stifled innovation and left entire communities shuttered as jobs and opportunity have moved south of the border,” Vice President Mike Pence wrote in The Washington Post over the weekend.
USMCA guarantees the strongest labor protections of any U.S. trade agreement. It ensures fair wages in all three countries and gives Mexican workers real collective bargaining rights—a move that finally puts American unions on a level playing field.
The new deal also eliminates the NAFTA loophole that allows foreign car companies to buy auto parts from China or Europe, assemble them in Mexico, and then sell those vehicles duty-free in the United States. With USMCA, “we will require at least 75 percent of a car to be built with parts genuinely made in North America for it to be sold duty-free,” the Vice President writes.
“And for the first time ever, we will require at least 40 percent of a duty-free car to be made by workers earning at least an average of $16 an hour.”
In addition to factory workers, USMCA will boost America’s farmers, ranchers, energy producers, digital and technology workers, and other middle-class families.
“For years, members of Congress have demanded a replacement for NAFTA. Now they finally have the best replacement that they could ever even imagine,” President Trump told workers in Wisconsin last Friday.
“So on behalf of our nation’s loyal, hardworking citizens, I’m calling on Congress to pass USMCA and send it to my desk immediately for signature. We shouldn’t be playing around.”
Vice President Pence: Congress must pass the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
Rep. Ron Estes (R-KS): On the USMCA, Pelosi can't take yes for an answer
50 years ago today, Apollo 11 launched for the Moon
On July 20, 1969, humans walked on another world for the first time in history. Four days earlier, on July 16, the Apollo 11 mission launched with Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins onboard.
The Moon landing achieved a goal that President John F. Kennedy set in 1961, before Americans had even orbited the Earth. After a landing that included dodging a lunar crater and a boulder field just before touchdown, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin explored the area around their landing site for more than two hours.
They collected soil and rock samples, planted an American flag, and left behind a plaque with a simple message for the heavens: “We came in peace for all mankind.”
For this historic anniversary, the National Air and Space Museum held a special ceremony today, displaying the same space suit that mission commander Armstrong wore when he took that “giant leap for mankind.”
NASA: At 9:32 a.m. ET, Apollo 11 launched, sending 3 astronauts to the Moon
“At that moment, the nation held its breath—a nation that had been deeply divided during the tumultuous 1960s,” Vice President Mike Pence said during the unveiling ceremony. “On top of the contributions to science and human understanding, for that brief moment, the man who wore this suit brought together our nation and the world.”
Neil Armstrong was known as ‘Ice Commander’ among his colleagues, a testament to his strength of character and ability to remain calm under pressure. His iron will was on full display while touching down on the lunar surface, during which he likely saved the lives of his two crew members. The designated landing area, it turns out, was full of boulders large enough to potentially doom the entire mission. Armstrong calmly took control of the module and found a safe spot to land with only 17 seconds of fuel left to spare.
“The debt this nation owes to our Apollo astronauts, including the man who wore the suit that we unveil today, we can never fully repay,” the Vice President said.
Heroes such as the Apollo 11 crew helped pave the way for more achievements by the men and women of NASA. Under President Donald J. Trump, the best is still to come.
America is renewing its commitment to be the sole leader in space activity and exploration. After remaining dormant for the past quarter-century, the National Space Council was given new life by President Trump. NASA now has a renewed mission: to return America to the moon within the next five years—and, from there, on to Mars.
“I have a feeling that the man who wore the suit that we will unveil today would be glad to know that the first woman and the next man on the moon will also be an American,” the Vice President said.
Relive the Apollo 11 launch, 50 years later.
President Trump says Congressional Dems “should love our country”
At a Cabinet meeting this morning, President Trump told Americans exactly what he expects from members of the United States Congress.
“They can go wherever they want or they can stay. But they should love our country,” the President said. “They shouldn’t hate our country.”
Watch: “It’s up to them,” says President Trump.
“I have clips right here,” he continued. “The most vile, horrible statements about our country, about Israel, about others . . . You have the same list that I do.”
Here are a few of those statements from a prominent group of far-left, freshmen Democratic Congresswomen:
To top it off, when asked to condemn the Antifa terrorist attack at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Washington state this past weekend, Rep. Ayanna Pressley attacked the media, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was silent, and Rep. Omar was silent.
Democratic leaders and the mainstream media don’t want to talk about any of this. President Trump isn’t going to let them ignore it and hope that no one notices.
It’s all about ‘Made in America’
It’s Made in America Day, and President Donald J. Trump celebrated by hosting his third annual Made in America Showcase—an exhibition on the White House lawn of manufacturers from all 50 states.
“Washington used to say these jobs weren’t coming back. They were wrong!” Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham tweeted this afternoon.
🎬 Watch: Handmade motorcycles straight from America’s heartland!
President Trump is making sure that Americans’ own Federal Government continues to put them first, as well. Earlier today, he signed an executive order to strengthen requirements under the Buy American Act, which creates a preference for American-made goods in important Federal purchases.
“The philosophy of my Administration is simple: If we can build it, grow it, or make it in the United States, we will,” he said.
Businesses both big and small and from a wide range of industries showcased their incredible work at the White House today. On display were Zippo lighters made in Pennsylvania, Airstream trailers made in Ohio, Buck Knives made in Idaho, and Nokona baseball gloves made in Texas.
“When we choose American-made, something truly wonderful happens: Our communities thrive and flourish, our neighborhoods bustle with commerce, our children dream bigger and bolder, and the bonds of loyalty that unite us as citizens become closer,” the President said.
President Trump is ushering in a new age of American manufacturing as factories roar back to life and blue-collar workers thrive. Manufacturing job growth soared to a more than two-decade high in 2018, bringing opportunity to communities that had been left behind. The future looks even brighter: Manufacturer optimism has skyrocketed under President Trump, reaching a new record high last year.

President Trump takes more action to stop the surge of illegal immigration
President Trump took action today to stop illegal immigrants from using meritless asylum claims as a free pass to illegally enter our country.
The Administration’s new rule will make aliens ineligible for asylum if they passed through another country on their way to our border without applying for protection. These asylum-seekers will be required to demonstrate that they applied for protection in at least one country and were denied before they can obtain such status in the United States.
Our asylum system has been used as a loophole by aliens to gain entry into the United States and remain here indefinitely—even though their claims are often meritless. The median asylum grant rate across all immigration courts is about 11 percent.
“Until Congress can act, this interim rule will help reduce a major 'pull' factor driving irregular migration to the United States and enable DHS and DOJ to more quickly and efficiently process cases originating from the southern border, leading to fewer individuals transiting through Mexico on a dangerous journey,” Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said in a statement.
