My Prayer for the viewing, mourning, honor of President Reagan
Self | June 8, 2004 | Jeff Head

Posted on 06/08/2004 7:32:00 AM PDT by Jeff Head

Regarding the growing wait to see the late President Reagan lying in state.

...I am overjoyed to see it. I wish I could be there. I woudl gladly wait 24 hours or more to be honored to see him lying in state. Myself and my family will be there in spirit.

I pray that the masses who desire to see him amaze everyone...that they are so numberless that they cannot be contained. I pray that they will wait as long as necessary and be glad and willing to do so, in California and in DC...white, black, yellow, brown and red.

I pray that it becomes such a phenomena that the press can't hide it, that they are at a complete loss of wors to explain it... that their socialist/liberal programs and voices are in fact left utterly speechless by it!

This is my prayer for this week of mourning and honor for the former President Ronald Reagan and his great all-American legacy...a legacy that will show him to be on of the top tow or three greatest presidents this nation had evr had, or that we have been blessed by God to see in office.

This is totally grassroots here. It can only grow. If you're in DC, GO.

The outpouring of love and respect for this great man will confound the enemies of liberty...foreign and domestic.

Hope you're doing alright my friend...God's blessings to you and yours.

You're welcome Jeff .. here is another ping

FNC is reporting that 50,000 people have walked past the casket so far and that it's being reported that if they extended the viewing for a week, they still wouldn't have enough time to accommodate everyone that wanted to pay their respect to President Reagan.

They added 25 more buses to transport people to the library and also extended the hours

Thanks you.

I am going to expand the prayer...I pray, hope and wish we could convince Nancy to have the President driven back to California through fly over America. EVERY TOWN AND CITY ALONG THE PATH would be filled to overflowing with those who wanted to see him off.

I wish there was a way to get this message out.

I know it would impact our country in such a HUGE way!

It shall do so anyway!

See my post 57.

Even in the towns he didn't stop in...the people would line the streets and roads and overpasses as he passed to simply see him go by, all waving American flags!

You are very welcome. We are witnessing history here...not only in the passing of this great man...but in the outpouring of respect and honor for him and what he represented.

It gives one great hope for our nation, despite the best efforts of enemies foreign and domestic.

...and what a fitting tribute and gift from this great man whose hope and optimism in life were legend. How fitting that he should build and pass on that same hope as he passes.

Sadly, I am in Idaho

It will be a wonderful place to remember Reagan.

Hopefully it brings unity and causes us to think of the principles he inspired in us, and maybe some will go back to standing for those principles.

An excerpt from the Statesman:" Idaho GOP to honor Reagan on Friday

Idaho Republicans plan to dedicate Friday's state convention meeting to President Ronald Reagan."

Sandy said the important thing Friday will be Idaho Republicans gathered to remember Reagan.

I don't agree .. President Bush has done an outstanding job of getting our military back on track. In fact, there are hundreds of similarities between the two. Yes, they are their own person and each has their own personality .. however, their policies and personal idealogies are very, very similar.

My prayer is that America will be revived by remembering not only what Reagan stood for but will realize that President Bush also stands for the same things.

Bush' heart is in the right place however the mood of the nation will not allow restoration of the ill advised premature draw down of the 1990s. The level of welfare burden we now have to sustain is very high. To be fair, Bush would have to be even more persuasive than Reagan was in order to do anything about this. We need to forget about disarmament and rearm. We will eventually, but it will be painful until then.

I will join you in that prayer, realizing that in the main this is corrent, but there are some social program and immigration issues where Bush need's to change for it to be completely true IMHO.

I'm closing my business on Friday while his funeral is taking place. Ronald Reagan is one of the few mortals to truly impress me to the point that I consider them great. My father was a great man to me. Ronald Reagan was a great man to me. He is the ONLY public figure of any kind who has EVER generated such admiration and inspiration within my soul. He is a great great man, and I hope he's now face to face with Christ.

I want to go over at some point. I am not certain I would be able to stand the hours necessary for the Capitol but I might be able to swell the crowd on the streets.

I was a Reagan delegate to the VA Convention back when and understand more than ever that it is one of the God-led things I have done. It was an impossible accomplishment then and now I know why it had to happen.

Government is out but business will still be open, I suspect. With all the "whigs" coming into town security is already heightened. They have sealed the manholes and are proceeding according to list.

Prayer will do more to secure the safety of all than all the prep that they do. However, the dominant lying spirit of this region will constitute an enormous barrier and be a task to overcome to see that the true scope of the outpouring of gratitude and affection for President Reagan is acknowledged, revealed and reported.

I hope the turnout and the feelings sweep this nation.



I think that is EXACTLY what will happen.
Did our beloved president not die on D-day?
It was so appropriate.
Are they not, even now, extending the viewing hours in California to try and accomodate what few people we can?

The press may TRY and say "this is nearly as phenomienal as the kennedy funeral..." but in my heart I fully expect the turnout and public response to the Promotion and Passing of Ronald Reagan, to be far greater than that.

I believe if we survive as a nation the current islamoterrorist cancer on this planet, that history will record Reagan along with Lincoln and Adams, or Jefferson... as one of the greatest men of our last millenia in Western Civilization.

and as for our stupid presstitutes who will NEVER GET IT?!?! To quote our beloved president, "well, er... There They Go Again!"

It is really quite choice that Clintong is being frozen OUT of this event by the family of Ronald Reagan and THIS president of the USA, at this point. After the wellstone "campaign/funeral gone insane?!?) , I think he should be physically restrained from attendance at ANY event honoring the president of the last Century, The American Century... RWR.

God bless you Ronnie, we barely even got to know ya...
Until we meet again...
Happy Trails Mr. President.

I know...I just believe that he is a little more akin to social programs and government intervention in some areas than Reagan was...not a lot mind you...but some.

But, I do take great hope with Bush because I believe his faith is genuine and sincere...and that he has a hope an optimism born of faith in Christ and the principles that such a faith is based upon. Therefore, he is reachable, prticularly from above...and I believe he will respond to those inspirations and promptings.

"the nation will not allow restoration of the ill advised premature draw down"

Huh ..?? The public has been running 75% in support of building up the military. But .. since when has Bush done anything because of what the polls said. Besides, Rumsfeld has been tasked with upgrading the military .. thereby eliminating the extreme buildup as in the Reagan years.

"this is nearly as phenomienal as the kennedy funeral"

What a joke the media is. I exerienced both and JFK was nothing compared to this.

The outpouring for JFK was more immediate grief for our nation and his young family than it was out of respect for him and his legacy. He was immoral, he copped out at the Bay of Pigs and left Americans on the ground...and he was a liberal/socialist at heart.

Reagan's outpouring is because the man and the principles he espoused, lived and communicated for years were GREAT! ...and what he accomplished with them was GREAT! The people know this, and ten years after his departure from the public view , they are STILL responding to it.
