Monday July 31st – Open Thread

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.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Jay Sekelow’s attorney firm ACLJ, is filing FOIA’s ……..
    ‘Obama holdovers’ in D.C. scrubbing ‘ISIS genocide against Christians’

    “………In a startling revelation, news is breaking this week that Obama holdovers within the State Department are actively attempting to scrub its records to remove any mention of the ISIS genocide against Christians,” the organization reported………..”

    “…….This is outrageous and the ACLJ has had enough, so we are preparing a new set of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to find out why – and to expose deep state operatives who would use the delay of confirming new State Department officials as cover to strip legal protections from Christians facing genocide…….”

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.)continues to ask whether Obama officials improperly attempted to covertly find out the names of numerous Trump transition members.

    “Hundreds of unmasking requests’ made by Obama official”

    “………….[T]his Committee has learned that one official – whose position has no apparent intelligence-related function – made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama Administration,” Nunes wrote in a letter to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats. “[Only one request] offered a justification that was not boilerplate and articulated why [the identity was needed for official duties]……….”

    Thanks, MamaTEA, for all those substantive comments and article links, you’ve left me with an afternoon’s reading. I’ll depart from the substantive with a – ahem – “human-interest” story.

      This is so wrong. The only thing that would stop them would be people starting to hurt them. But, of course, then those people would be arrested instead of the stupid illegals.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen

    Heavenly Father, sweet, sweet Merciful God,

    We come before You, great Physician, this night rejoicing in Your goodness and grace upon the children You call Your own. We know we are not worthy of Your blessings, and yet You pour them out in abundance day after day to show us Your love. Thank you seems hollow when spoken to You, Maker of all life, but thank YOU we long to do at Your feet.

    We pray this day, this night, this moment for “our” Piper, for Your Piper, that Your Holy Spirit is resting within and around Piper’s body and keeping Piper’s spirit in Your perfect comfort and peace. Please draw close to Piper, please let us — through our cries to You — tear open the ceiling and lower Piper down to Your caring arms Jesus, as those friends did for their friend, when they were unable to move on their own.

    Please dearest Abba, sing over Piper tonight, sing Your sweet song of delight over Piper this night, whether awake or asleep. Thank You, Sovereign Lord for Your glory in our lives.

    In Jesus wondrous Name we ask and hope.

    As a means of honoring a recently fallen police officer, these 35 cops and state troopers got together to finish construction of a very special project.

    Retired and active officers from the New York State Police, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, and the Watertown City Police all got together to finish building the treehouse that Officer Joel Davis had been building for his teenage daughter Jaila.

    In less than a day, the officers put the finishing touches on Jaila’s fort, completing features like a ladder, windows, a string of lights, and a balcony.
