You are not alone in feeling the overwhelming fear for our Republic. I too oft use that powerful statement from the 23rd Psalm. We can only do what we can and seek guidance of His will for us. In my opinion both political party's care little for the Republic, but instead for their own wealth and power.

One of our founding fathers and first President warned in his farewell address after serving as our first President that allegiance to political party's would lead to what we are now experiencing.

I also believe the only way our "grand experiment" can survive is through the realignment of our states into smaller Republics dealing with each other through treaty only. But I have no idea how this can be accomplished without a call to arms first. For our electoral process has been manipulated and controlled by the Party bosses for so long.

Fulfilling the Vow - Day 2

Day 2 of 99 - Check

As of today, May 22, 2012, there are 98 days until the Republican Convention in Tampa, which is on August 27, 2012.

God has the Power to turn this deplorable (romneyzombie) situation around if we ask him.

Remember what the Lord Christ said, "when two or three are gathered in my name, there I am."

Everyone must ask, what is the force that stands in the way of us gathering together on this thread and praying this super prayer given to us by God through the heart and soul of Jim Robinson, every day? Do the Angels of Heaven counsel us to remain separate, or is it the Denizens of the Pit who "counsel" us to remain separate, that the promise of Christ's Presence among us (as the all-important unifying factor), cannot be fulfilled?

I must again express my gratitude for this opportunity that Jim has given us, to realize the potential of Unity, Under God, and Unity in the memory of our Forefathers Reliance on the Blessings of Divine Providence, a memory that is essential for the survival or our nation. It is so great to be reminded of that every day in this way. Sure, we all of this as the back of our minds, but participating in this daily prayer vigil brings it forward, and the fresh memory of it, is like drinking an elixir of inspiration. And we need such a wind in our sails if we are going to accomplish anything of lasting value.

Fulfilling the Vow - Day 3

Day 3 of 99 - Check

As of today, May 23, 2012, there are 97 days until the Republican Convention in Tampa, which is on August 27, 2012.

Today, I did not come to this ritual as the first thing I would do at FR today, but only after doing battle with the RomneyZombies on a new thread I posted early this morning. And so, as you might expect, when I finally got to the point where I could come over here, and complete my vow for today, I was really discouraged.

However, in the course of giving this prayer, I find first within me, a welling up of gratitude for the opportunity to again consider the stream of American history that Jim has set forth in this prayer, and the power of gratitude does help to wash away the discouragement, and what follows, is a new breeze of inspiration and hope.

Of course I was very hopeful in my new quest this morning to declare to the RomneyZombies the value of this axiomatic principle, that skin color is absolutely no indicator of character content, and that it was folly for the Republican Party to nominate an individual who was taught from birth to believe the opposite, yet who has become a master at weaving a confusing facade of civil rights credentials to mask and hide the core truth. I was not very successful.

Coming from that domain of discouragement, I found this ritual today to be an oasis of hope. With God we can move forward in Hope. It is tragic in my mind to see so many Republicans being led down a path where there is no hope, because that path is essentially, Anti-God.

Fulfilling the Vow - Day 4

Day 4 of 99 - Check

As of today, May 24, 2012, there are 96 days until the Republican Convention in Tampa, which is on August 27, 2012.

Romney plants an electrode of total moral confusion into the midst of our Republican Party. Make no mistake. This is totally Satanic. The Party is split, divided. And a house divided cannot stand. The Enemy is clearly inside the gates.

On a national scale, restoring our access to the resources of Divine Providence is THE KEY to solving every problem America faces.

On the scale of our political party as well, restoring our access to the resources of Divine Providence is THE KEY to solving every problem our Party faces.

The truth has to be firmly anchored somewhere before it can build strength and expand out to push the darkness back.

This is our hour. And the Republican Party is the battleground where the forces of Light and the Forces of Darkness come to a head-to-head battle for the hearts of men.

If we lose here, the nation loses overall. If we win here, this winning spirit can spread from sea to shining sea.

What is the winning spirit? General George Washington knew what it was. We must do battle in the domain given us. Yet, we must seek, humbly and with great faith, the assistance of the Hand of Divine Providence. This humility before God, that recognizes there is no victory without his help, is the seed-spark of victory we must anchor in the midst of this battle for the soul of the Republican Party now.

Unity before God is an alchemical key. The Lord Christ said, "where two or more are gathered together in my name, there I Am." General George Washington understood this.

Five days after the Continental Congress issued the Declaration of Independence, General George Washington set before the Continental Army, the following general order:

 
George Washington,
General Orders,
July 09, 1776

The Hon. Continental Congress having been pleased to allow a Chaplain to each Regiment, with the pay of Thirty-three Dollars and one third pr month--The Colonels or commanding officers of each regiment are directed to procure Chaplains accordingly; persons of good Characters and exemplary lives--To see that all inferior officers and soldiers pay them a suitable respect and attend carefully upon religious exercises. The blessing and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger--The General hopes and trusts, that every officer and man, will endeavour so to live, and act, as becomes a Christian Soldier defending the dearest Rights and Liberties of his country. The Hon. The Continental Congress, impelled by the dictates of duty, policy and necessity, having been pleased to dissolve the Connection which subsisted between this Country, and Great Britain, and to declare the United Colonies of North America, free and independent States: The several brigades are to be drawn up this evening on their respective Parades, at Six OClock, when the declaration of Congress, shewing the grounds and reasons of this measure, is to be read with an audible voice.

 

Indeed, on the very day the Declaration of Independence is to be read to the troops, his mind is already on the need for the assistance of Divine Providence. Wouldn't it be awesome to have been there that day. Facing an impossible task, yet with an assurance of victory burning in every heart.
