California (kæləˈfɔrnjə/) is a state located on the West Coast of the United States. It is the most populous U.S. state, and the third most extensive (after Alaska and Texas). It is home to the nation’s second and sixth largest census statistical areas (Greater Los Angeles area and San Francisco Bay Area, respectively), and eight of the nation’s 50 most populated cities (Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Fresno, Sacramento, Long Beach, and Oakland). The capital city is Sacramento.

California’s diverse geography ranges from the Pacific Coast in the west, to the Sierra Nevada mountains in the east — from the Redwood–Douglas-fir forests of the northwest, to the Mojave Desert areas in the southeast. The center of the state is dominated by Central Valley, a major agricultural area. California contains both the highest and lowest points in the contiguous United States (Mount Whitney and Death Valley), and has the 3rd longest coastline of all states (after Alaska and Florida). Earthquakes are a common occurrence due to the state’s location along the Pacific Ring of Fire: about 37,000 are recorded annually…

Oregon (ɔrɨɡən/ ORR-ə-gən) is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located on the Pacific coast, with Washington to the north, California to the south, Nevada on the southeast and Idaho to the east. The Columbia and Snake rivers delineate much of Oregon’s northern and eastern boundaries, respectively. The area was inhabited by many indigenous tribes before the arrival of traders, explorers, and settlers who formed an autonomous government in Oregon Country in 1843. The Oregon Territory was created in 1848, and Oregon became the 33rd state on February 14, 1859…

Washington (wɒʃɪŋtən/) is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States located north of Oregon, west of Idaho and south of the Canadian province of British Columbia, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Washington was carved out of the western part of Washington Territory which had been ceded by Britain in 1846 by the Oregon Treaty as settlement of the Oregon Boundary Dispute. It was admitted to the Union as the 42nd state in 1889…

Nevada (nəˈvædə/) is a state in the western, mountain west, and southwestern regions of the United States. Nevada is the 7th most extensive, the 35th most populous, and the 9th least densely populated of the 50 United States. Over two-thirds of Nevada’s people live in one single county, Clark County, which contains the Las Vegas–Paradise metropolitan area, where the state’s three largest incorporated cities are located. Nevada’s capital is Carson City. Nevada is officially known as the “Silver State” due to the importance of silver to its history and economy. It is also known as the “Battle Born State” because it achieved statehood during the Civil War and the “Sagebrush State” for the native eponymous plant…

Haunting History of : Baranof Castle State Historic Site, Sitka, Alaska.

Castle Hill also known as the American Flag-Raising Site and now as the Baranof Castle State Historic Site, is a National Historic Landmark and state park in Sitka, Alaska.

Many people forget that Alaska was once a Russian territory before being transferred to American possession in the 19th century. Though no structures from that period are standing, one historic site in Sitka holds the foundation of the ancient Baranof Castle, the home of Russian royalty who kept watch over their impressive lands after wresting them from native Tlingit tribesmen. When the United States’ purchase of the territory was finalized at Baranof Castle, the family in residence sailed away from their stately home.

Soon after the family’s departure, newspapers began to report the presence of a ghost – a beautiful and doomed Russian Princess haunting the site. Decked in a black robe of mourning and opulent jewels, the princess drifted through the castle during the night, sadly bemoaning her fate. Rumors and even news reports circulated that the princess had killed herself on her wedding night in order to avoid an arranged marriage with a man who was not her true love. Today, “Castle Hill” State Historic Site is a great place to catch a glimpse the ethereal Lady in Black.
But the account was not a true story according to John Alexander who published a novel in 1911 called The Lady in Blue, a Sitka Romance. According to him, the tale of the Baranof castle ghost came earlier than 1840, and the ghost was the beautiful daughter of a manager for the Russian-American Fur Company. She killed herself in the glass-enclosed cupola in the observation tower on the castle roof.

The story has been told by many at different times and is one of the romantic tales that cluster around the old metropolis of the fur trading days. Her lover was sent away or killed through the influence of an ober offitzer who sought her hand in marriage. Eliza Ruhamah Scidmore, who wrote so delightfully of Sitka in her journeys in Alaska in 1883, says that, “By tradition the Lady in Black was the daughter of one of the old governors. On her wedding night she disappeared from the ballroom in the midst of the festivities, and after a long search was found dead in one of the small drawing rooms” (Andrews, 1922, p60).
Prior to the arrival of Europeans in the area, Castle Hill was occupied by families of the Kiksadi clan of Tlingits. Alexander Baranov, a leading figure in the Russian-American Company, arrived in the Sitka area in 1795, and sought to establish a trading post on the hill. He ended up establishing Redoubt St. Archangel Michael several miles away in 1799; this trading post was destroyed by the Tlingit in 1802. Baranov returned to Sitka in force in 1804, seized Castle Hill, from which the outnumbered Tlingit had withdrawn. After the six-day Battle of Sitka, the Tlingit formally ceded Castle Hill to the Russians.
In 1806 the Russians transferred the headquarters of the Russian-American Company and the seat of government of Russian Alaska to Sitka, and Castle Hill was the focal point of the company and government facilities until 1867. They destroyed the Tlingit houses on the hill, and built a succession of structures on the hill’s summit. The last of these, a two story brick building with a cupola on top known as the Governor’s House, was built in 1836 and was destroyed by fire in 1894.
In 1867, after the Alaska Purchase was negotiated, Russian Alaska was formally transferred to the United States in a ceremony held on Castle Hill. The Russian-built Governor’s House was occupied by United States Army commanders until 1877, and remained a center of US government administration until the building burned. In 1898 the hill was transferred to the United States Department of Agriculture, which built a structure on the hill which served as its Alaska headquarters until 1932. This building was then used for a variety of commercial purposes before it was demolished in 1955. The site was then designated a territorial park

Visit Canopy of Prayer’s Facebook page:
Hear Apostle Isaiah Kadiri, from Nigeria, share prophetic word about the Coming Move of God beginning in Mobile Bay:
The day is fast approaching as registrations are already coming in and continue to come in to converge upon the streets of Mobile, Alabama under the Canopy of Prayer to pray over every street within the borders of the city of Mobile. For Him Films puts together an anointed orchestration of audio and video as they highlight just how urgent the need for prayer is in this critical hour. Many can attest to the environment of strife that has long existed in our nation. “Distractions, confusion, division…we try to look past it, but in reality, it’s ripping us apart.” For Him Films continues to share how this generation has a mounting responsibility. “This generation is facing a crisis. Many are turning their back on each other and on the Church.” What do we do about it?

Port of One is calling for every believer available to join in unity and prayer, to pray for the city of Mobile. “On April 29, 2017, we are calling every believer to the streets of Mobile. We want every area, every corner of our city to be covered by a massive Canopy of Prayer.” With continued hope, they share these words, “we can be a uniting force, prayerfully and strategically appealing to heaven for a Godly change in our city. We will be one family, one city, together who believe.” Now is the time to act and to be a part of history as the Church responds to the Spirit of the Lord and intercedes for an entire city. You can register now at Continue reading description below…




★☆★ THE TORCH ★☆★


★☆★ DONATE ★☆★





This monumental event didn’t just get started on April 29th. Many came together, in the spirit of unity, to pray for Mobile, at the Saenger Theatre in Mobile for a night of worship with Bethel Music. Hunter Thompson and Kalley Heiligenthal led worship as the Spirit of the Lord moved powerfully upon those praying and interceding for the city. The event was funded by local businessman, Fred Rettig, owner of Rettig Auto Body in Daphne, Alabama. This is what the Business Mountain is all about; using the blessings to fund and advance the furthering of the Kingdom of God.

This event not only involved people from the Church of many different denominations, as well as business men and women, but also governmental leaders. The Mayor of Mobile, Sandy Stimpson understands the urgency and need to pray for our cities and to give things to the Lord. Mayor Stimpson wrote a Proclamation of Faith and recently shared these powerful words by beginning how kings of old would do the same. “In days of old, kings and those in authority wrote Proclamations of Faith also known as decrees to unite the people and to provide focus and clarity and purpose, by acknowledging their Creator…”

We do not want our words to fall upon empty responses. We want to see these prayers fulfilled with the footsteps of action and change to happen in our city. “…Now is the time in Mobile for unity to overcome division, for neighborly love to overcome envy and selfish ambition, for compassion to overcome condemnation, for humility to overcome pride, for prosperity to overcome poverty, for good health to overcome sickness, for joy to overcome sadness, for peace and harmony to overcome wrongdoing and misconduct, for faith to overcome fear, and for prayer to overcome worry.” At its onset, the Mayor thought this event would have to be carried out over a few weeks. But, after further consideration, he reasoned that this could be done in a single day.

Monsignor William O’Neill offers his personal insights on why Savannah’s Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is so rare in the South.

“I grew up in Ireland, and I’ve seen beautiful churches all over Europe. But I think this is one of the most beautiful of all of them. Especially when you consider the fact that the number of Catholics in this part of the U.S. is so small. It’s a marvelous testimony to those who built such a beautiful edifice back in 1874…”
