Posted on 07/27/2005 1:34:31 PM PDT by sonofatpatcher2

Lawrence Sidney Eagleburger

(August 1, 1930-) was born in Milwaukee. Described as a career diplomat, Eagleburger joined the Foreign Service in 1957 and held a series of embassy, State Department, national security, and Defense Department posts before serving as Ambassador (1977-81) to Yugoslavia. He was a State Department Assistant Secretary (1981-82) and Undersecretary (1982-84) before serving as Deputy Secretary of State (1989-92) and Secretary of State (1992-93) under President George Herbert Walker Bush, becoming the first Foreign Service officer to hold the latter post.

Prayer Request for Secretary Eagleburger

I have a friend who is retired from a career with the CIA. He is very close friends with Former Secretary of State Eagleberger. He had been keeping me informed on the Secretary's poor health. I asked him if he wanted me to put in a prayer request in Free Republic. He replied:

Larry is in terrible health. Would he mind your posting something on Free Republic? Probably. But pls do so anyway ... he can use prayers. And thanx.

Our Heaven Father,

I pray on behalf of Lawrence Eagleburger. He served our nation for most of his life and now he is in very ill health. I ask You to watch over him and ease his pain and suffering. Your guidance has always lead the way to greater understanding, so I pray You do so for Secretary Eagleberger.

In Jesus name, Amen.

I always enjoy Secretary Eagleburger's appearances and insights, and am very sorry to hear of his health problems. I will gladly keep him in my prayers.

This is bad news indeed. He was always one of my favorites for his tough stand against terrorism years ago.

I will pray for him. He is a great man.

He's always a refreshing, no-bull voice when he gets on the air for an interview. Even if I disagreed with some of his positions I always thought he was saying what he believed was right and true. He was also transparent, in that everytime someone like Alan Colmes asked a silly question, he got this look on his face like "Oh boy, one of these..."

I see a lot of him in John Bolton. We could use more like Sec. Eagleburger, and I hope he gets well.

I am not familiar with him, but I trust the judgement of most FReepers, so I will add my prayers for him.

We ALL need prayers. At some times more than others.

I have also heard my feelings expressed by Secretary Eagleburger on FOX, many times. He is among the ones that I listen to and find reasonable and on the right side of issues.

Thanks for all of your pings, Tracy!

My prayers are always offered to Him when I read the need! The former Secretary fills that premise as one in need -- no sooner asked than DONE!
