In times of challenge we must look at the opportunity that exists in each moment for growth, restoration, and transformation. Within this time of pandemic there are many devastating realities that have surfaced. However, as with most all adversity, within it lies a seed of hope and opportunity. For our family, this has been a time to refocus and bind together all the more. It has also been a time to prioritize our inner and outer health and healing. We are being all the more thoughtful about what we consume and we are finding new ways to connect with those we love, with social-distancing measure in place.
Proverbs 29:18 states, "Where there is no vision, the people perish."
As a brand, Never 2 Fly 2 Pray has always held a clear vision of who we are and the message we are looking to spread through our designs and through every promotional effort for which we engage. The year 2020 is no exception. Never 2 Fly 2 Pray remains completely aligned to the purpose of sharing the message of the power of prayer. While the year 2020 is well underway, we have much of the year before us.

One may wonder or think what does love have to do with a brand like Never 2 Fly 2 Pray, but I would like to give this notion context. The will to love is the determination and conviction one holds to demonstrate love and compassion to another even within the most inconvenient of circumstances. The will to love is a position and state of being one is fixed within regardless of the realities that surround it. Ultimately, the will to love is the very love that GOD shows us by accepting us freely in all of our humanness.
If you have been privy to any of Never 2 Fly 2 Pray's most recent clothing releases than you have grown familiar with the phrase Did you thank GOD for waking you up? Our founder Jeffrey Lee coined the original phrase and incorporates it into the close of his online inspirational videos. Perhaps seemingly unrelated, one of the most common questions I am asked since becoming a pastor is “how do you pray?” It seems that the notion of coming to GOD has become ever so daunting and the pressure to sound a certain way when you pray or the concern about coming to GOD the “right way” can be an issue even when praying in private.
