I saw today on the news that President Bush has openly asked for prayer. How amazing and wonderful that he would do that.It moved me such that I wanted to share that request with you all. Mindful of the current situation with Iraq, our President has requested the prayers of those he has been called to lead. I would like to encourage you to take time this evening, or in the days ahead, to gather with your household in prayer for the leadership of our nation. President Bush specifically requests prayer for: Wisdom for he and his advisors as he considers leading the effort to disarm Saddam in light of the safety of our people and the peace of the world. The soldiers who are being deployed to be acutely aware of the value of their training, their honor and the appreciation of the American people. May God's strength, help and protection literally dwell with our troops. The leaders of the FBI, the CIA, Homeland Security and the Department of Defense as they follow the President's orders to develop a Terrorist Threat Integration Center that will gather and analyze information about all kinds of threats to America in one place. Pray that God will guide them in the process of making our nation safe from terrorist threats. For our nation, pray that America will realize that it is mightiest when on its knees. May this be the year that America turns back to God.Thank you for your time and concern. We are grateful that God has placed a man of faith in the White House and we celebrate the freedom we enjoy in America to pray openly.May God continue to bless America.
