National Day of Prayer 2015

Washington_at_Prayer - Copy

Today is a National Day of Prayer.

The National Day of Prayer (36 U.S.C. § 119) is an annual day of observance held on the first Thursday of May, designated by the United States Congress, when people are asked “to turn to God in prayer and meditation”.

The modern law formalizing its annual observance was enacted in 1952, although earlier days of fasting and prayer had been established by the Second Continental Congress from 1775 until 1783, and by President John Adams in 1798 and 1799. Most presidents have issued annual or special occasion proclamations for a national day of prayer, with the notable exceptions of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson.

The constitutionality of the National Day of Prayer was unsuccessfully challenged in court by the Freedom From Religion Foundation after their first attempt was unanimously dismissed by a federal appellate court in April 2011. …

 On this day of prayer, let us pray for our Republic:

Heavenly Father, thank You for blessing us with the privilege of dwelling in this great nation. Thank You for inspiring our Founders, when they wrote the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which together preserve the natural rights which You, in your Supreme Wisdom, have bestowed upon all human beings, men and women.

Jesus, we trust in You. We ask that You guide our leaders. Give them the moral strength that they need to ensure that none of our rights, most especially our right to worship freely, are ever infringed. Turn the hearts of the People back to You. Turn their hearts away from all who would corrupt and mislead them. 

Holy Spirit, we beg You to protect our Republic during these most dangerous of times.

Let us pray:

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but

deliver us from evil.

  1. Amen!!!!


    “The New York Times has peered into Pamela Geller’s heart — and found it full of hate. I’ll let others make the argument that it’s unseemly to so viciously attack the victim of an attempted murder just three days after the attack — to accuse her of intentionally provoking the attempt on her own life and the lives of her friends and supporters, no less. And Rich Lowry has offered a convincing argument that Geller was motivated not by hate, but rather “defiance.” Let me instead offer a defense of hatred. But first, a confession. I’m far more hateful than Pamela Geller. In fact, I’d argue there’s no way that she could hate jihad more than I do. I’ve seen jihad up-close, in an Iraqi province where jihadists raped women to shame them into becoming suicide bombers, where they put bombs in little boys’ backpacks then remotely detonated them at family gatherings, where they beheaded innocent civilians while cheering wildly like they were at a soccer match, and where they shot babies in the face to “send a message” to their parents. I’ve seen the despair in the eyes of the innocent victims of jihad, and — believe me — that despair is infinitely greater than the alleged “anguish” caused by a few cartoons. …”

    I’m praying for Pam Geller.

    • “Possible” link? Maybe it was workplace violence, huh? What ought to alarm everyone is how Elton resembles the thugs in Ferguson and Baltimore. They all make the same hand gesture, too. Coincidence, most likely. The other guy, of course, was just a nice guy. His white mom and grandma say so. He must have just “snapped.”

  3. He adds, “The idea was further developed in Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, especially rule 13: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Alinsky popularized the tactic, but Marcuse invented the concept.”

    In the ISIS message targeting Geller for death, the group said, “The next six months will be interesting…May Allah send his peace and blessings upon our prophet Muhammad and all those who follow until the last Day.”

    It’s time for the media to stop encouraging the bloodshed. ^^^^

      • OUR Pamela GELLER ~ this is OUR LAST “MAN” S T A N D I N G
        Does it LOOK WRONG ? ~ FEEL WRONG?
        WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME … AMERICA ? WHEN ? …. playing nice
        is NOT REALLY in the GAME …. I will NOT FIGHT YOUR FIGHT…
        What is OUR next MOVE? LET US COUNT THE WAYS ~ !

        • so ha ^^^ I just surfed over to annies house… the letter she got will
          offend most but …it was still sent 2 her 2 read …so how long before
          we get one …or more? I ponder & do we wait on baited breath? ha

            • I read that FOX has had to diversify in order to stay profitable, on account of their broadcast channel losing money. That means their film and cable businesses are carrying the broadcast channel, but this doesn’t mean that the FOX cable news channel is not profitable. BUT, if they keep going like this, they’re going to LOSE money sooner rather than later. Greta, O’Really, AND Ingraham attack Pam Geller? I turned them off last night, after hearing that. Won’t be back soon. I’ll spend my time reading Gateway Pundit.

              • I do listen to FOX still, but it’s rare. I’ll check it at night sometimes before going off to sleep (if I don’t fall asleep right away), and I’ll catch excerps of it. They are full of crap too, just in a different context than the more liberal channels. Hannity stokes the fires like the good catholic boy he is and keeps the neocons and ultraconservatives happy, while O’reilly creates a different fervor and skews left himself. I don’t really care about their personal opinions, I just want some true investigative journalism and facts. I decide what I think. News is 24/seven in your face all day long……the more chance the media gets to spin all day one way or other and create the mischief and mayhem that we’ve got now. Maybe when they all start losing money, they’ll quit doing so much public damage.
                I used to be a news junkie till I realized how much these guys are making off of spinning to my addiction and that I’m left with a hangover of political garbage. I’ve sobered up some and I must say I feel much better.

                • They do spin, alfy. After watching them for years, at this point, all we can think is: They DON’T REALLY BELIEVE THAT, do they? It becomes obvious that they take a position just to cause an uproar, although how the hell anybody can blame Pam Geller for two jihadists’ actions, or ESPECIALLY blame her for THEIR DEATHS, is going way too far to stir up controversy. They’re insane or ELSE, they’re all tools of Obama because of the power of what he’s able to KNOW.

            • Tell me: How did Pam “demean other people unnecessarily” by sponsoring a contest to draw cartoons of a long-dead man? I’ve read recently that your “moderate” Muslims don’t hold to the belief that drawing that guy equals death. Therefore, whom did Pam “demean” other than people who THREATEN TO KILL OTHERS who will not SUBMIT to their warped ideology? Our ideology is to respect freedom of speech, not to bow to anybody who puts a sword to our necks. It’s time to uphold OUR TRADITIONS and not submit to their warped, 7th century totalitarian views. THIS is the “religion of peace” (actually, SUBMISSION) that ALSO mutilates and murders women, children, and gays. How are we to condemn THOSE traditions without “demeaning” them?

          • Hmmm. Sounds like hate speech to me. Talk about sexist.

            Zen, “we” get some weird messages here, but nothing on that order. No, we’re getting weird messages about our “colleagues” who are attacking a former commenter’s throat and brain with wi-fi signals. And lately some new areas of the anatomy. I’m hoping it’s just phishing or spam, by someone who hacked a friend’s email address.

      • Now Pam is being held responsible by the AP for the DEATHS OF THE JIHADISTS WHO TRIED TO KILL HER?!!!!!

  4. I have some good news from England.
    All the political pundits and media elite have for months predicted a socialist takeover in the elections we had yesterday.
    The BBC, in particular, was transparently in love with Mr. Ed (Milliband),
    Mr. Ed was farther to the left than obama, he said he would bring in government control of prices in the energy markets, government control in the rental rates of private property and penalize banks and big business with fines and taxes that he thought they deserved.
    Well here’s the news:
    Conservative win outright, even better than five years ago when the Conservatives had to go into coalition with a somewhat sympathetic party called the “Liberal Democrats”.
    Mr. Ed has just announced his resignation and so has the leader of the liberal democrats.
    I don’t expect barackyo to be on the phone line to David Cameron to congratulate him on winning another five years of conservative government.
    What the Brits achieved here (they are a quietly sensible people) in the face of an elitist media onslaught could give us mettle for the struggle we will face, with a dozen highly qualified conservative candidates, against one Democrat – who stinks of corruption!

    • I know, Dave! Read the results in the paper today. Ha! The polls were wrong. What a surprise. It must be that the technique of bogus poll taking has migrated overseas. They do that to demoralize the opposition to their favored candidate. Thank goodness it didn’t work. The paper tried to explain it away as “shy Tories” who were too ashamed to admit their conservatism. Well, whatever the reason, thank goodness they went to the polls and voted for what passes as a conservative over there.

      • Axelrod got beat!!! 😀

        • Let’s hope Messina’s next client doesn’t win, though.

          I’m thinking that the UK folks are waking up more and more to the threat of Islam and anti-Semitism. Not to mention that many groups are trying to racially wipe out, well, white people and their culture.

  5. Saw that this morning around 4:00…..a long media stint on it on Fox . I know you’re happy!

  6. Lest you not know “which side” Barry is on:

    “Obama sent three White House officials to criminal Freddie Gray’s funeral.
    How many should we expect for decorated Officer Moore’s, murdered by a criminal?
    CNN reported:

    The White House sent Cabinet Secretary Broderick Johnson, chair of the Obama administration’s My Brother’s Keeper Task Force; Heather Foster, an adviser in the White House Office of Public Engagement; and Elias Alcantara from the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs.

    Gray also had a history of run-ins with the law. According to court documents CNN obtained, there were more than 20 criminal court cases in Maryland against Gray, and five of those cases were still active at the time of his death.

    The Obama White House sent three officials to robber Michael Brown‘s funeral in Ferguson.

    But the White House did not send any officials to Officer Brian Moore’s funeral …”

    So far as I know, Barry hasn’t said anything about the terrorist attack in Garland, TX, but if he does opine, most assuredly he’ll probably blame Pam because, as he warned, “the future must not belong to those who slander” his prophet.

  7. O hates cops. 👿

    • But when you think about it, why should he? Has he EVER had any occasion to have dealings with them? Of course, we wouldn’t know but surely, whatever the case, he had more than enough connections to get him off, seeing as how he’s from the privileged elite.

  8. A question begun at the Conservative Tree House. Now Cashill is on the case:

    Was the witness really a witness?

    • Foxy, you read my mind. I was just coming back to remind us that we need to thank the brave vets of WWII for saving our freedom. V-E Day is today, when the Greatest Generation whupped Hitler’s ass.

  9. Thank God for 60-something marksmen!!! Never let it be said that 60-year-olds are over the hill:

    “At the point of the attack, the two suspects apparently drove up and opened fire upon an unarmed security guard who was accompanied by a 60-year-old Garland police officer. The unarmed guard was struck the volley of gunfire. The veteran Garland officer then drew his duty-issue Glock pistol and opened fire on the suspects.

    The officer killed one terrorist and wounded the other in his initial volley of return fire. Witnesses claim there was a brief pause, and then the officer fire two more shots to kill the still-moving terrorist as he appears to be reaching for a backpack. …”

    NOW that’s the kind of training that EVERY COP needs; not “diversity” training or “sensitivity” training.

  10. Listen to recordings. Can you guess which line the officer used that just made my jaw drop? A family in crisis:

  11. Rosemary Woodhouse

    And amen. Godlessness enabled the lawlessness we see and experience today.

  12. Z ~ this is 4 U . I hear the munchkins betwixt the hedges giggling. tee hee

  13. Why is WZ down?? 🙂

  14. Here’s a surprise. They’re LAWLESS.

    “The Obama administration violated U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s injunction halting President Obama’s executive amnesty programs, Justice Department lawyers have admitted to the court, according to the Washington Times.

    The Times reports that in a late night filing Thursday, Justice Department lawyers revealed that the Department of Homeland Security had issued some 2,000 three-year work permits (as opposed to the currently permissible two-year permits) to illegal immigrants granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

    The issuance of the three-year work permits — an aspect of Obama’s November 20 executive actions which expanded DACA — was violation of Hanen’s February 16 injunction preventing the executive amnesty programs from going forward.

    This occurred despite repeated statements from administration officials that they were abiding by the injunction. …”

    I’ll bet they thought this “snafu” would never come to the judge’s attention, and so they just went ahead and broke the law. As with Hill and Bill, the Obama administration ALWAYS have their “excuse” ready when they get caught because “mistakes are made.”

  15. This is very funny, or at least the “outrage” will be:

    “The Hispanic owners of a BBQ restaurant in Colorado will host a “White Appreciation Day” next month. The idea started as a joke, but the BBQ owners decided to actually go through with the event.

    “Edgar Antillon and Miguel Jimenez recently purchased Rubbin Buttz BBQ on Broad Street. On June 11, they plan to offer a 10 percent discount to all white customers and no one else.”

    I wonder how long before these folks are forced to cancel their event?

    “We have a whole month for Black History Month,” Antillon said. “We have a whole month for Hispanic Heritage Month, so we thought the least we could do was offer one day to appreciate white Americans.”

    The owners expect a backlash. …”

    Well, it’s funny but for the discount for whites, although nobody seems to mind when bars give women drinks for free.

  16. michelle obama Blacks have been Frustrated …4 …decades..

    • What in the world did they do to provoke those peaceful protesters? What if any of the rioters/arsonists/looters had been killed if the police had not stood down? Then what would those business owners do? How would they pay reparations to the families of the criminals if the cops had actually done their jobs and perhaps, in the course of meting out justice, caused the deaths of any of those violent criminals? OMG. We have gone through the looking glass, for sure.

  17. Juan Williams ….can’t & WON’T SEE the FOREST 4 the TREES
    till when – will he ….awaken 2 the THREATS…. soon??

    • How can he possibly be serious? Ok. So what did the 168 people in the building in OK do to cause the death of Timothy McVeigh? Why did the 2,996 people in NYC, PA, and DC provoke that attack on 9/11 that caused the deaths of those 19 terrorists? Almost 3000 people and they have the blood of those 19 on their hands? What kind of assh*** is Juan Williams? Words very nearly fail me. It makes me so angry. What is WRONG WITH HIM?

  18. CAR-toon-ist …MAN is not hiding… so does the TRUTH Really HURT?

  19. ~ Fast Eddy • 3 hours ago ~
    I hear a lot of liberals say that the Muslims were “provoked to kill”

    A girl in a bikini provokes Muslims to kill.
    A girl without a burka provokes Muslims to kill.
    Being a Christian or Jew or Atheist provokes Muslims to kill.
    Not submitting to sharia law provokes Muslims to kill.

    Muslims kill off anyone who is not Muslim, here is the proof –

    Saudi Arabia 100% Muslim
    Somalia 100% Muslim
    Turkey 99% Muslim
    Afghanistan 99% Muslim
    Oman 99% Muslim
    Yemen 99% Muslim
    Iran 99% Muslim
    Algeria 99% Muslim
    Djibouti 99% Muslim
    Libya 97% Muslim
    Iraq 97% Muslim
    Pakistan 96.35% Muslim

    There are no atheists in Muslim countries. They were all killed off long ago….

    ~ Righteous Anger Fast Eddy • 2 hours ago ~
    ~ Muslims kill off gays.

    • Enlightened. Better late than never. They’re truly at risk of losing their national and cultural identity.

    • If our culture is so provoking to them, then I have a suggestion: go live in a country where you’re not provoked.

    • Well, the woman has had a makeover for TV since I first saw her. She was married to a Middle Eastern man, which is why her name is Soofi. Her other son, iirc, is called Ali. I read that they lived in the Middle East for a while. I believe she and the husband are divorced. I read somewhere that the younger son did live with the radical one, but disagreed with his activities and recently moved out. Who the heck knows what’s true anymore? I do know, however, that this should NEVER have happened given that even I recognized that Elton guy’s name, so why wasn’t the DHS WATCHING HIM? What the hell do we pay billions for every year, for this so-called dept. of “homeland security” if they’re not SECURING THE HOMELAND from the likes of these guys whom they very well know about? Why didn’t they tell Pam Geller and her people, btw, about the threat, when they allegedly told the local cops about it? One wonders if that’s just a BS lie to cover up that “mistakes were made.” iow, they didn’t tell the event organizers because it’s a lie that they warned ANYBODY, even the local cops.
