This is a prayer request for
a man in urgent need of prayer. I'm asking you TODAY, please take
a moment and pray for this man. He is in a situation that few people
find themselves in. He is criticized by many people at every turn,
and few people have taken the time to thank him for the things that
he has done for them.
A lot of people know this
man, but few people know the extent of his situation. We're quick
to criticize when we've never walked in his shoes, and we're slow
to pray that God will show him which way to go.
So I'm asking you to stop
at some time TODAY, and pray for this man. He needs our urgent prayers
that God will give him the guidance he needs to get through this situation.
This man hasn't asked me to
do this, but I feel led to do so and I'm sure that he appreciates
all of our prayers. I have attached a photo of this man...look at
it... some of you may recognize him... Please pray for him.
Feel free to forward this
to anyone else that will pray for him. Trust me, if you were facing
what he is facing, you'd want people praying for you!
"For this let every devout one pray
to You at a time when (misfortune) befalls.....I will educate you
in which path to go, I will advise you with (what) my eye (has seen)."
Psalm 32: 6, 8
Quotes From President George
"I long for peace. But
I also understand that if we do not lead the world against terror,
that your children and our grandchildren will not grow up in a society
that is as free as the society we have today. Freedom is the precious
gift that one generation can pass to the next. It is a gift and a
promise that I intend to keep to the American children."
--George W. Bush
"I also want our country to continue
to embrace the values that make our nation so wonderful. I believe
the great strength of our country lies not in our halls of government,
but in the hearts and souls of the American people. It's a million
acts of kindness and compassion on a daily basis that define the true
spirit and the true strength of America. We live in a blessed land.
It's a society which says, you've got to love your neighbor just like
you love yourself. That's the spirit of America that I know."
--George W. Bush
"Our country was founded by great
and wise people who were fluent in the language of humility, praise
and petition. Throughout our history, in danger and division, we have
always turned to prayer. And our country has been delivered from many
serious evils and wrongs because of that prayer. We cannot presume
to know every design of our Creator, or to assert a special claim
on His favor. Yet, it is important to pause and recognize our help
in ages past and our hope for years to come. The first President to
live in the White House arrived with a prayer. In a letter to his
wife, written on his second night here, John Adams offered a prayer
that Heaven might bless this house and all those who would call it
home. One of his successors, Franklin D. Roosevelt, thought enough
of that prayer to have it inscribed on a mantlepiece in the State
Dining Room, where you can still find it today."
--President George W. Bush
"Sacrifices are being made by members
of our Armed Forces who now defend us so far from home, and by their
proud and worried families. A Commander-in-Chief sends America's sons
and daughters into a battle in a foreign land only after the greatest
care and a lot of prayer. We ask a lot of those who wear our uniform.
We ask them to leave their loved ones, to travel great distances,
to risk injury, even to be prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice
of their lives. They are dedicated, they are honorable; they represent
the best of our country. And we are grateful."
--George W. Bush
"On this National Day of Prayer, I
encourage Americans to remember the words of St. Paul: 'Do not be
anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.' The Congress, by
Public Law 100-307, as amended, has called on our citizens to reaffirm
the role of prayer in our society and to honor the religious diversity
our freedom permits by recognizing annually a 'National Day of Prayer.'
NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President
of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested
in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby
proclaim May 2, 2002, as a National Day of Prayer. I ask Americans
to pray for God's protection, to express gratitude for our blessings,
and to seek moral and spiritual renewal. I urge all our citizens to
join in observing this day with appropriate programs, ceremonies,
--George W. Bush, National Day of Prayer Proclamation 2002.
