they know we're praying for them in love, out of respect,
for their souls, safety, health, salvation, God's wisdom,
and the list goes on?
(Keep praying for Mr. President Obama and those in
government anyway!) As Jesus himself said, as we nailed Him
to the cross, He PRAYED for us anyway...
"Father, Forgive them, for they do not know what they
are doing." Luke 23 :34
Everything GOOD comes about through PRAYER, and quite
frankly, only through active prayer with a compassionate
heart for people, just like Jesus!
So what if we "Christians" want a day of prayer recognized -
is it really that offensive?? There are SO MANY other things
to be offensive about... believe me!
Prayer is personal yes, but gathering together
shows humility (we can't govern properly
without the Almighty's help), a need for each other, a collective
body of souls uniting for the power of the Lord, a oneness
as we join forces with all different races to pray to the Lord
for whatever our needs are, or simply to give Thanks for this
freedom (that it is)
"Where 2 or 3 are assembled in My name,
I am there among them" (Matt.18-20)
This is a blessing folks!
My Opinion here:
This news is only to bring about controversy, because
America loves it... we thrive on this stuff and Obama just
does everything OPPOSITE of our history because he's the
change we wanted right?
Well... we got it! We all had an opportunity to Vote remember?
Completely, not surprising to me at all.
The world as we know it has been
trying to keep God out of "our secular ways"/selfish desires, for a very
long time - just look around at all of our problems, national,
international woes, moral decline, killing babies and the list goes on...
do we really wonder why?
This is a spiritual GREED/PRIDE battle, and it always has been.
However, the GOOD NEWS is that the Lord of heaven, Jesus Christ -
no matter what man made intentions "try" to do,
Has it all under control.
Satan is the God of "this age" now (because God
has allowed it - by our hands pushing God away),
but his days are numbered (YAHOO), like the rest of us.
JESUS IS KING and we will ALL bow to Him someday,
for it is written - Phil 2:9-11
Also, death (the debt every man(woman) pays), shows that we are not
immortal beings (therefore, needing a Savior),
like we sometimes live. We are all born in sin,
JESUS PAVED THE WAY for us on that note!
JESUS did just that and conquered death so we could
live eternally WITH HIM! How could you want anything less?
We will all give an account, Mr. President, including you.
"Why do the nations rage
and the people plot in vain?
The kings of the earth take their stand
and the rulers gather together
against the Lord
and against His Anointed One."
Acts 4 - 25:26
Many are the plans in a man's heart
but its the Lord's purpose that prevails
Proverbs 19 - 21
All a man's ways seem innocent to him,
but motives are weighed by the Lord
Finally, PRAY without ceasing... 1 Thessalonians 5:17
go ahead people, You are God's property
no man can tell you otherwise - let them
try to take away your freedom in Christ -
they can't get into our personal relationship with Him
the one inside our hearts and minds... isn't that
what real FREEDOM is? I am FREE and no one
takes that from me anymore. I am SO thankful for this!
Glory to God in the highest...
The Lord Jesus is our King! Let it penetrate your heart
and into all the earth today and everyday!

Let's ENCOURAGE one another with these words
and run the race before us, for the prize at the end!
I'm on board, how about you?
