Thursday January 17th – 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 †

    So Habana is kinda sad, really run down, falling apart and full of garbage. We were on our tour bus and I commented on trash blowing around. An elderly man looked up and said it was common in a socialist country. Believe me, he said, “I am from USSR”. Hmmmm
    There are some really beautiful old buildings but most everything is like a shanty or soviet block apartments. Many of the buildings are just crumbling away.

    Most people agreed that it makes you very grateful for what we have, very grateful.

      My BFF lived in Cuba when she was in Elem. school. Her father worked there in the 50’s. She loved it and always wanted to go back for a visit. They were just starting to open it up when she got too sick to go. I tried to tell her it wouldn’t be the same, but she just brushed me off. She died before she got the chance. I think she would have been so disappointed if she had gone.

    Dear fellow Treepers,

    Please lift your voices in prayer tonight for my dear husband that he may be healed and live a full and long life. He is adored by his children and they will be devastated if the worst comes to pass. We will know shortly. Thank you.

    I cried to you for help, O Lord my God,
    and you healed me;
    3 you kept me from the grave.
    I was on my way to the depths below,[b]
    but you restored my life.

    4 Sing praise to the Lord,
    all his faithful people!
    Remember what the Holy One has done,
    and give him thanks!

    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.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

  13. Remembers the Gatlinburg wildfire a couple of years ago…Sundance posted the video of one man’s escape through the inferno. These 911 calls are heartbreaking and gutwrenching

    In case anyone hasn’t noticed, here’s a heads up. NY governor Andrew Cuomo seems to be waging an all out war on Christians, which is of=dd because he’s expecting the support of Puerto Ricans in his run for president.
    His brother Chris is joining him, and equating Christianity with white supremacy, which isn’t even a thing:
    How could two boys who had religious parents get this baad?
