Sunday February 3rd – 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 †

    Hi American friends,
    Here is an update about Israeli construction of the barrier and one of the best explanations and statistics in case anyone challenges the workability. The last paragraph of the article gives the illegal immigration stats before and after. See bellow:

      Last paragraph, for those in a hurry…. (emphasis added)

      “The fence along the Egyptian border, which is similar to the one which will be built along the Gazan border, has slashed almost completely the number of illegal African migrants arriving in Israel. The number of infiltrations from the Sinai – with 14,669 infiltrations in 2010 to 213 in 2015, to 14 in 2016 – prompted authorities to raise the height from five meters to eight meters along a 17-kilometer stretch. There have been no infiltrations from Sinai since.”

    Watch: Pro-flag, anti-Kaepernick Super Bowl ad that CBS rejected because they didn’t like the ad’s content. It would be a shame if we shared it far and wide!

      Really like her way of singing. This is my favorite of Gladys Knight (“I Am A Child of God”). It starts slow and then picks up. Never fails to lift up my heart

  3. Boring Superbowl. Boring commercials. No sense of humor, no imagination, no reality. Our new Country is going to be great!

    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.

    We’ve been learning about John 7 verses 40-52 in church.
    Something that struck me tonight, when hearing the part about the temple guards being asked why they didn’t bring Jesus in, some of them said “No one ever spoke the way this man does”.
    For some reason that made me think of the hardened communist leader General Jarulzelski, who had been baptized a Catholic, trembling before Pope John Paul II.

    That led me to think, seeing the story about Nicholas Sandmann and his family’s lawsuits on behalf of their son, where would Pope John Paul have been, in times like these, and where, o where is the Catholic Church now?

    A fine young person being persecuted for having an illegal look on his face. A look that no one knew you couldn’t have, until vile and profane people started to judge and attack him on it.
    Come to think of it, later on in the Bible passage I referred to, Nicodemus says, “Does our law condemn a man, without first hearing him, to find out what he has been doing?”

    Evidently, nowadays it does, as almost no one who professes to be a Christian stood up for the boy.

    Supporter of accused blasphemer Asia Bibi says she is still in Pakistan, not in Canada as her lawyer claims
    February 3, 2019 9:05 AM By Robert Spencer

    It wouldn’t be at all surprising if she has not been able to get out of Pakistan. So many Muslims there are enraged by her acquittal and avid to spill her blood.

    The Jussie Smollet situation is now even more ridiculous:

    Smollett has previously said he was talking to his manager on his cellphone during the attack and still had that phone after the attack. Chicago reporter Rafer Weigel of Fox32 News tweeted that police sources had confirmed that Smollett also still had the Subway sandwich on him when he turned up at an apartment building shortly after the alleged attack. So Smollett underwent a vicious beating by two attackers that apparently lasted less than 60 seconds, since that is the reported gap in surveillance footage between an image of him without a rope around his neck and an image of him with the rope. Smollett now says he fought back, but apparently he lost neither his Subway sandwich nor his cell phone in this brawl. Also he didn’t immediately call the police on that phone to describe the suspects and inform the police which way they had gone when they suddenly ran away from him, but instead waited about 40 minutes to inform the police.

      When I heard he wore that rope around his neck all the way home, I knew it was another false flag scam.

        It’s bizarre. I read that he had the rope draped around his neck, it wasn’t tied.

        if the assailants had run away, there is apparently no surveillance footage of them.

        I pray that this story comes to a proper close, and if Smollett is lying I hope it kills his career.
