Posted on 04/05/2007 5:17:23 AM PDT by alpha-8-25-02
President Bush: THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, all. (Applause.) I've been waiting all day to say, Hoo-ah! AUDIENCE: Hoo-ah! Thank you for greeting me. General Cone, thanks. I appreciate your service to our country and thanks for leading these men and women. I'm honored also to be with Jill. Thank you for joining us today for lunch. Command Sergeant Kim Boyink has been a generous host. Sarge, I appreciate being with you. Thank you for your service. Thanks for setting such a good example for the enlisted folks. I often tell people that the backbone of the Army is the sergeant. AUDIENCE: Hoo-ah! And I appreciate you sergeants who have joined us here, and I appreciate you serving. ...I appreciate not only those who wear the uniform who are here today, I want to thank your families, too, for coming. It means a lot to me to be with our military families. ...Ours is a remarkable country when people volunteer to serve our country in a time of war. The amazing thing about our United States military is thousands and thousands have signed up knowing full well that we're a nation at war. The government didn't say, you have to do this, you chose to do it on your own. You decided to put your country ahead of self in many ways. I'm proud to be the Commander-in-Chief of such decent people, such honorable people, and such noble people. And I'm proud to be in your presence today.

"O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame?" - Psalm 4:2
An instructive writer has made a mournful list of the honours which the blinded people of Israel awarded to their long expected King.
1. They gave him a procession of honour, in which Roman legionaries, Jewish priests, men and women, took a part, he himself bearing his cross. This is the triumph which the world awards to him who comes to overthrow man's direst foes. Derisive shouts are his only acclamations, and cruel taunts his only paeans of praise.
2. They presented him with the wine of honour. Instead of a golden cup of generous wine they offered him the criminal's stupefying death-draught, which he refused because he would preserve an uninjured taste wherewith to taste of death; and afterwards when he cried, "I thirst," they gave him vinegar mixed with gall, thrust to his mouth upon a sponge. Oh! wretched, detestable inhospitality to the King's Son.
3. He was provided with a guard of honour, who showed their esteem of him by gambling over his garments, which they had seized as their booty. Such was the body-guard of the adored of heaven; a quaternion of brutal gamblers.
4. A throne of honour was found for him upon the bloody tree; no easier place of rest would rebel men yield to their liege Lord. The cross was, in fact, the full expression of the world's feeling towards him; "There," they seemed to say, "thou Son of God, this is the manner in which God himself should be treated, could we reach him. "
5. The title of honour was nominally "King of the Jews," but that the blinded nation distinctly repudiated, and really called him "King of thieves," by preferring Barabbas, and by placing Jesus in the place of highest shame between two thieves. His glory was thus in all things turned into shame by the sons of men, but it shall yet gladden the eyes of saints and angels, world without end.
SOLI DEO GLORIA!
GOOD MORNING CHRISTIAN PATRIOTS!
Joining you in prayer this morning!
I’ll pray for him, too!
Amen. Wonderful Presentation to our Lord on this Lovely Day!
Our Merciful Father,
We Come into Your Presence, Great King, our Hearts Filled with Your Goodness and Your Praise. We could Never Stand before Thee, our Lord, if not for the Gift of the Son of Your Love. How Great is Your Grace, Dear Father Jehovah! How Magnanimous the Mercy that Gave us New Life! Our Hearts cannot Comprehend Your Love; how Glorious the Work that Raised us from Death!
Our Master, Hear our Cries for our Brother, and Conform him to the Image of Jesus Christ. Our Father, we Long to See an Abundant Soul-Harvest Brought in, through the Agency of Your Beloved, Redeemed Child. Grant it, our Master, that we Might Sing the Songs of Sweetest Praise. May he be a Vessel of Honor, a Trophy of Your Sovereign, Great Grace.
Thank You for Guarding our Military, O Loving God. Thank You for Blessing our America, to Your Praise. We Pray that the Democrats' Worst Fear will be Realized: a Supreme Court Filled with True Followers of the Lamb. Be Pleased to Hear us, O Father our King, for Your Mercies' Sake, to the Praise of Your Grace.
Be Magnified Forever, our Caring, Faithful God, as we Pray in Your Son's Dear Name, amen. We Love You, Father Jehovah.
LORD, PLEASE LEAD OUR BELOVED PRESIDENT IN ALL RESPECTS, PERSONALLY; IN HIS FAMILY; FOR THE NATION AND FOR THE WORLD. May his choices reflect your values and priorities, Lord.
Protect him and his loved ones.
Give him Godly wisdom and toughness.
In Jesus’ Name.
The following seems fitting, to me:
A Smoking Bush
Yesterday was such a beautiful day here in Illinois. I was out walking at lunch time listening to a teaching on destiny from the life of Moses. You can imagine my surprise when I glanced up and saw smoke pouring out of a bush. As I watched, the smoke would only appear if the wind blew in just the right direction. As I examined the bush ( this was a large bush that covered much ground ) I could see no flames. But I knew there was a fire smoldering inside. I began to think about the words for President Bush about him being a burning a bush. I felt I heard the Lord say “President Bush has had many setbacks and is now smoldering inside. Two things can happen with his destiny. He can just go out in 2008, or he could ignite in My fire and fulfill the purposes that were set before him. There is a word that has been growing inside him that could set this nation on fire. That word can go out with him in 2008 or if fanned by the wind of your prayers it could ignite and set this Nation on fire”.
Please consider this word in your prayers for our President and for our Nation.
Blessings in His Reign,
THANKYOU AND MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU THIS RESURRECTION WEEKEND!
Amen! Lord, as Easter approaches, we are reminded of the unmeasurable sacrifice You made for us. Forgive us of our sins and renew a right spirit in us. Place it in our hearts to forgive those who wrong us. Thank You for answered prayer and for our president, military and our wonderful country. We pray for revival at a time when the enemy sometimes appears so overbearing, yet we know You are in control. Bless Your Name, and it’ in Jesus’ Name we pray, amen!
AMEN AND BLESSINGS!
Lord, I pray that You would stoke the smouldering fire in me and anyone else here in whom the intensity and passion of prayer has diminished by the distress of apparent powerlessness in the face of surmounting darkness. Increase the fervency in my/our hearts so that passionate prayer cannot help but pour out for President Bush at this perfect time. I pray that what looks like a series of setbacks will only provide the setup for comeback after glorious comeback, and that this Presidency has its best and most effective days ahead. Lord, I am confident that You know exactly what you are doing!
Amen to your prayers.
THANKYOU AND GODSPEED!
