Piranha Prayer Ministry
(LAUNCHED APRIL 2016)
Piranha prayer is an online prayer gathering open to the public. We pray in the Spirit for men, women, boys and girls everywhere. We fervently pray for national, state, local leaders, ourselves, households, family, friends, coworkers and associates. With our prayers, we bite, chew and devour our internal psychological enemies and external verbal abuse from our spiritual adversaries. When we come together to pray, we are stronger than when we pray alone.
King Solomon said, “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10)
When we pray together, fight and defend ourselves in the Spirit, we are more than conquerors. (Read Romans 8:31-39 and Ephesians 6:10-20) To learn more about our piranha prayer, tap Piranha Prayer.

(Marriage is very complex. It’s not easily blending two personalities into one. And Lord knows it’s even harder to blend two different families trees (in-laws). Newlywed are not given a marriage manual and are left to figure out how to become one. Generally, newly wedded couples have not experience in becoming one unit. At Catch of the day DC we believe that ongoing marriage counseling, classes, workshops, seminars and retreats are needed to help married couples understand boundaries, respect one another, adjust to extended family members, maintain a romantic focus, keep an active sex life, learn how to really listen with the heart, understand the uniqueness of their soulmate, apologize to appease anger and live a peaceable life together as one.

King Solomon said, “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat; for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes themselves in rags.” (Proverbs 23:20-21)
Too many people are not healthy because of poor lifestyle choices they made in their youth and carried into their adult life. Gluttony leads to obesity which leads to all kind of diseases including Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Coronary Artery Disease, Coronary Vascular Disease, Heart Attack, Stroke, and Cancer.
Illegal drugs, prescription drugs abuse and alcoholic beverages does not lead to abundant life. Drug addicts and alcoholics rob themselves of the ability to function and contribute to their communities. Alcohol and drug abuse leads to irrelevance, disrespect, scorn, poverty and a unfulfilled non abundant life.
