“ Blessed be the Name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise, And knowledge to those who have understanding. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him. “ I thank You and praise You, O God of my fathers; You have given me wisdom and might, And have now made known to me what we asked of You, For You have made known to us the king’s demand.” ~ Daniel 2:20-22 ~

“Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His Holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” ~ Psalm 103:1-6 ~ Dear Father in Heaven, We enter Your courts with hearts full of praise! Let our cry come before You, O LORD; may our lips utter praise unto You! Thank You for the treasure of knowing You and being in Your Presence. May we bring You glory as we lift up these requests for our beloved Heroes who are serving their country.

We ask in the Precious Name of Our LORD Jesus Christ, for the protection of the marriages of our enlisted American Heroes. Please Glorious Creator, we ask that You put a hedge of protection around each and every American Heroe’s marriage. May Your grace enable them to honor their vows and to cherish their spouses Gracious LORD, please bless their children with Your grace and power. We pray that they will call upon You when they are lonely, and be comforted by the Glory of Your Presence. May they all come into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.(Romans 10:13) Precious Jesus, please bring geniune Christians, whose are only Godly desire is to help bring them into the Kingdom of God.( “the God of Heaven will set up a Kingdom which shall never be destroyed.. Daniel 2:44) Please give them ears to hear, eyes to see, and a hearts willing to obey the Voice of the Living God! We rejoice that “ God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” ( John 3:16) Dear Lord, You are a kind and loving Father, may You be close to all the children that must be away from their Daddy’s and Mom’s. May they know they can call out to Jesus and He will be their Comforter, their Friend, and a Defender, and a Father, all the things any child needs ,Jesus is ALL, and so much more! How we Thank You and Love You! May You make Yourself known to these precious little ones while their parents fight to keep our country free. How we thank You for those that keep watch over these little ones, for Your Word speaks of them in Matthew 18: 10,11 “ Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven. For the Son of Man has come to save the lost.” Thank You, Our Gracious LORD for providing children their own Guardian Angels to watch over them.

We pray with thankful hearts for this great country You have blessed us with. We ask for mercy on this land , because, Your Word declares, “the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting.” ( Ps.103:17) Our country has sunk in its values and morals. We pray for a revival and an awakening. Please send your Holy Spirit to this land to convict us of our sins and turn our eyes and hearts to Jesus Christ and make Him our Lord and Savior and King! We pray for those that are our leaders. Dear LORD, have mercy on these men and women that do not know You. I pray that the Holy Spirit will convict them of their need for You! May they open the door of their hearts and ask You in to fill the emptiness inside. Jesus says” I am the door; if anyone enters by Me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” (John 10:9)

We pray that You will protect and provide for our brave and courageous American Heroes, our Troops! Please guide them and direct their every step! We ask that You send Your compassion to them, and please encourage our mighty warriors with Your Love and Grace. May our Warriors that have suffered injuries during the Wars in the Middle East be encouraged and strengthened by the Love of Our LORD Jesus Christ. May the Beloved Savior comfort their hearts and protect them from discouragement. May He send them His grace and mercy. May Our LORD bless our Wounded Warriors with more courage and peace as they continue serving the Country they love.

Thank You for all Your tender mercies toward us. Thank You, for being so gracious, patient and kind. Your mercies are truly, new every morning! We worship, love, and adore You! Precious LORD, we ask these things for Your glory, and in Jesus Christ’s Most Holy Name, Amen.

Just Kids

December 7, 2012

After high school, Darrell Blizzard left the orphanage where he grew up to join the US Army Air Corps. World War II was in full swing, and soon he faced responsibilities usually given to older and more experienced men. He told a reporter years later that a four-mule plow team was the biggest thing he’d driven before he became the pilot of a four-engine B-17. Now in his late eighties, he said, “We were all just kids flying those things.”

In the Bible, we find accounts of many people who followed God courageously when they were young. In a situation of corrupt spiritual leadership, “Samuel ministered before the Lord, even as a child” (1 Sam. 2:18). David faced the giant Goliath in spite of being told, “You are not able to go against this Philistine . . . for you are a youth” (17:33). Mary, the mother of Jesus, was most likely very young when she was told she would bear the Son of God. She responded to the angel’s announcement by saying, “Let it be to me according to your word” (Luke 1:38). Paul told the young pastor Timothy, “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers” (1 Tim. 4:12).

God values each one in His family. In His strength, the young can be bold in their faith, while those who are older can encourage those who are “just kids.”

O Lord of all the upward road,
Keep strong our youth, we pray;
May age and youth together seek
To follow in Thy way. —Niedermeyer
Encouraging the young should never become old.

Read: 1 Timothy 4:9-16

Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers. —1 Timothy 4:12
Bible in a Year:
1 Thessalonians 1-5

Lord,
You brought us through
So many wars
Not serving ourselves
But, serving others

The starving masses
The under classes
The chaff of rogues
Who did not bother

To serve their needs
But, took their strength
Their lives, their wills
Chained them up
And fed them swill

But, You were there
To give them grace,
Those who knew
Your warm embrace

You gave them back
The will to live
The strength of honor
And to forgive

But, those who died
Died in Your Name
Through Heaven’s Gate
They humbly came

For serving others
Is serving You
May we remember
In all we do

Amen!!

Amen, Hiskid



Almighty and Eternal God, Protect our soldiers as
they discharge their duties. Protect them with the
shield of your strength and keep them safe from all
evil and harm.
May the power of your love enable them to return
home safely to the people who love them and to the
gratitude of the American people.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

May God Guide Our Nation

HOORAH!!

ACLU vs. US Marines
THIS NEEDS TO GO AROUND MANY TIMES; SO KEEP IT GOING!

SORRY! NO PHOTOS! Go to link at bottom!

If you look closely at the picture above, you will note that all the Marines pictured are bowing their heads. That’s because they’re praying. This incident took place at a recent ceremony honoring the birthday of the corps, and it has the ACLU up in arms.

“These are federal employees,” says Lucius Traveler, a spokesman for the ACLU, “on federal property and on federal time..

For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately.”

When asked about the ACLU’s charges, Colonel Jack Fessender, speaking for the Commandant of the Corps said (cleaned up a bit), “Screw the ACLU.”

GOD Bless Our Warriors.

Send the ACLU to Afghanistan !
Please send this to people you know so everyone will know how stupid the ACLU is getting in trying to remove GOD from everything and every place in America .

May God Bless America,
One Nation Under GOD!
What’s wrong with the picture? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

GOD BLESS YOU FOR PASSING IT ON!

I am not breaking this one....Let us pray.
Prayer chain for our Military...please don’t break it.

Would you ping everyone again for a special request. I am going to post this article about a Marine veteran who needs our help. Not only for his sanity, but also to get him home from Mexico.

Thank you everyone!
