One Minute Each Night

I got this email today and thought I'd post it here. Won't you join me???


This is the scariest election we as Christians have ever faced and from the looks of the polls, the Christians aren't voting Christian values. We all need to be on our knees.

Do you believe we can take God at His word? Call upon His name, then stand back and watch His wonders to behold. This Scripture gives us, as Christians, ownership of this land and the ability to call upon God to heal it. I challenge you to do so. We have never been more desperate than now for God to heal our land.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by My name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

During WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every night at a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England , its people and peace. This had an amazing effect as bombing stopped.

There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America . The United States of America and our citizens need prayer more than ever !!!

If you would like to participate: each evening at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (8:00 PM Central, 7:00 PM Mountain, 6:00 PM Pacific), stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, for peace in the world, the upcoming election, that the Bible will remain the basis for the laws governing our land and that Christianity will grow in the US.

If you know anyone who would like to participate, please pass this along. Someone said if people really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless.

Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.

Thank You.

Please pass this on to anyone who you think will want to join us.

God Bless You !!!

And, two years ago today.......

We saw the face of our baby boy. Finally we were able to touch him, hold him, kiss him. The feelings are hard to describe. You go through the process never really believing it will happen until this very moment. This was the day we became a family!

The pictures below are the first with our son and his foster mom, Maria who loves him very much.

Dear God thank you for this most undeserved blessing. This child's precious little soul is the most important thing in our lives. We strive to show him Your love in every way. We are greatly humbled that you have entrusted him to us. Amen

Acting silly!

After a scary night of tornado warnings about every 20 minutes, and very gusty tropical storm winds, the weather is finally starting to settle down. I am looking forward to a good deep sleep tonight after sleeping with one eye open last night.

We've been hanging around the house today for the second straight day because of the weather. These things tend to make some folks go stir crazy.....see below : )

We Will Never Forget

Please join me in prayer:

"Dear Father Almighty,

As we mourn for all the souls who died on September 11th, many of whom woke up that morning with no prayer or thought of You on their hearts, we ask You to extend the full portion of Your Mercy on their souls.

We also beg of you to continue to send the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, into the lives of their surviving relatives and friends. You, Father, and You alone, have the power to bring good out of evil. We humbly implore you to guide the hands, feet, and minds of all rescue workers and police and fire workers who responded after the attack, and who will respond in the days ahead to whatever challenges confront them. Protect them. Enlighten them. Help them save lives.We ask, too, Almighty One, that You extend a blanket of divine protection on the United States at this critical time.

Guide our leaders, especially President Bush, and all sovereign nations who are our friends, and place them under the special mantle of the Immaculate Conception, Our Lady, who is the patroness of our country. We ask all of this in the Holy Name that is Above All Other Names in Power and Glory and Love and Mercy; in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, our brother, and Our Savior.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas, pray for us. Saint Katharine Drexel and Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us. Saint Thomas More, Patron of Politicians, pray for us. Saint Joseph, Patron Saint of Canada, pray for us. Immaculate Mary, Patroness of the United States, pray for us. Jesus Christ, King of Kings, we adore you! Amen.
