Who I Am

My name is John Patrick Ireland. I have a regular job. I have been a born-again Christian for 47 years, married 43 years, have 4 grown children and 8 grandchildren. My main gifting has been in intercessory prayer for my family; the political situation in my state of residence and the United States; the political state of the world; and, specifically, Israel. I have taken part in two weekly intercessory prayer groups, at two secular companies, for about 8 years total. I have also hosted intercessory prayer in my own home since 1988 on Sunday night with my wife and children, when they lived with us; praying for Israel and revival in many countries in the world.

I will attempt to be guided on this blog by the following Bible verse:

Eph 4:29 NASB

Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.
