And it came to pass, on the 4th day of November, in the year of Our Lord 2008, a cabal of devious con men were elevated to power over all the people. Behind closed doors, under the cover of night and the veil of deceit, aided and abetted by a willing majority in a spineless Congress, most of academia and the lion’s share of the news media, they plotted the overthrow of a once-free America, from within.
Using the crises of a faltering economy, rising health care costs and the myth that is man-caused global warming, they put the wheels of their scheme into motion.
First, they nationalized the banks and the car companies.
Second, they nationalized the entire health care industry.
Third, they had already taken control of all American land, public and private, through the implementation of the United Nations’ Agenda 21 policy of social justice and radical environmental protection. Constitutionally protected property rights are now meaningless.
Fourth, they plan to put a stranglehold on industry and nationalize the means of energy exploration and production through the scam of buying and selling puffs of air containing carbon dioxide (CO2), using the so-called Cap and Trade legislation. The vehicle for this massive theft of our energy and our wealth, will be by criminal racketeering under the dubious name of the Chicago Climate Exchange. Costs of just about everything will skyrocket.
Fifth, in their quest for absolute power, they mean to grant amnesty to illegal aliens, thereby creating a block of socialist votes that will keep them in perpetual control of America, blocking any hopes of a conservative resurgence.
Finally, to complete their plan, they will be putting in place draconian regulations to bring Wall Street to its knees.
Their plan is almost complete.
Prayer has played an important role in the history of the founding of this nation. In 1774, at the First Continental Congress, there were a few who objected to a proposal to open with prayer. They believed that because there were members of various Christian denominations in attendance – such as Episcopalians, Presbyterians, and Congregationalists – that it might be difficult to join in the same act of Christian worship. Mr. Samuel Adams, however, arose and said that he could hear a prayer from any gentleman of piety and virtue who was at the same time a friend to this country.
On the following morning, the members of this first Congress bowed their heads as an Episcopal clergyman prayed fervently for the Congress and this country. According to John Adams, “It was enough to melt a heart of stone. I saw the tears gush into the eyes of the old, grave, pacifist Quakers of Philadelphia.”
Benjamin Franklin, who was certainly not known as a devout orthodox Christian in his time, over 20 years later rose to his feet at the Constitutional Convention and said:
“In this situation of this Assembly, groping as it were in the dark to find political truth and scarce able to distinguish it when presented to us, how has it happened, sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings?” Franklin pointed out that in the late war for independence, “we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection. Our prayers, sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered.”
“Do we imagine,” Franklin asked, “that we no longer need his assistance?”
Apparently, there are many in America today who believe they are able to govern without the assistance of the “Father of lights”. Therefore, they are left groping in the dark – unable to distinguish “political truth”.
This is why the National Day of Prayer is so important: We need to be reminded that the United States was built on the principles of Christianity and the prayers of our Founding Fathers. If we forsake this heritage, this nation will surely fall.
George Washington understood this and thus, at his first Inauguration as President of the United States, he prayed:
“Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection; that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large.
And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
President Franklin D. Roosevelt not only led the Nation in a 6 minute prayer during D-Day on June 6, 1944, but he also declared that “If we will not prepare to give all that we have and all that we are to preserve Christian civilization in our land, we shall go to destruction”.
President Harry S. Truman declared that “The fundamental basis of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul”.
President Harry S. Truman told a group touring Washington, DC, that “You will see, as you make your rounds, that this Nation was established by men who believed in God. … You will see the evidence of this deep religious faith on every hand”.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared that “Without God there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first, the most basic, expression of Americanism. Thus, the founding fathers of America saw it, and thus with God’s help, it will continue to be” in a declaration later repeated with approval by President Gerald Ford.
President John F. Kennedy declared that “The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God”.
President Ronald Reagan, after noting “The Congress of the United States, in recognition of the unique contribution of the Bible in shaping the history and character of this Nation and so many of its citizens, has … requested the President to designate the year 1983 as the `Year of the Bible’”.
All sessions of the United States Supreme Court begin with the Court’s Marshal announcing, “God save the United States and this honorable court”.
A regular and integral part of official activities in the Federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court, was the inclusion of prayer by a minister of the Gospel.
The United States Supreme Court has declared throughout the course of our Nation’s history that the United States is “a Christian country”, “a Christian nation”, “a Christian people”, “a religious people whose institutions presuppose a Supreme Being”, and that “we cannot read into the Bill of Rights a philosophy of hostility to religion”. (110th CONGRESS, 1st Session, H. RES. 888)
The 59th Annual National Day of Prayer will take place today, May 6, 2010. Millions will unite in prayer at thousands of events from coast to coast. The theme for this year is “Prayer for Such a Time as This” and is based on the verse from Nahum 1:7 which states: “The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him.”
Please take time today to pray for country, our armed services, and our leaders. Please pray also for God to pour out the Spirit of revival upon the churches of this country.
