Thursday August 15th – 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 †

    Saw another magnificent equine painting at pinterest (pic. below) and without reading the description knew it had to be the work of artist Jaime Corum. I wondered if she had a website with a gallery featuring her paintings and found it. They are posted here: http://www.jaimecorumequineart.com/artists#/original-oils-gallery

    Psalm 105:4-11, 43-45 (1599 Geneva Bible)
    4 Seek the Lord and His strength: seek His face continually.
    5 Remember His marvelous works that He hath done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth,
    6 Ye seed of Abraham His servant, ye children of Jacob, which are His elect.
    7 HE IS THE LORD OUR GOD: His judgments are through all the earth.
    8 HE HATH ALWAYS REMEMBERED HIS COVENANT, and promise, THAT HE MADE TO A THOUSAND GENERATIONS,
    9 Even that WHICH HE MADE WITH ABRAHAM, and His oath unto Isaac:
    10 And since hath confirmed it to Jacob for a law, AND TO ISRAEL FOR AN EVERLASTING COVENANT,
    11 Saying, UNTO THEE WILL I GIVE THE LAND OF CANAAN, the lot of YOUR INHERITANCE.
    ………
    43 And HE BROUGHT FORTH HIS PEOPLE with joy, and His chosen with gladness,
    44 AND GAVE THEM THE LANDS OF THE HEATHEN, and they took the labors of the people in possession,
    45 That they might keep His statutes, and observe His Laws. Praise ye the Lord.

    (1,000 generations x on average 15-70 yrs between generations = 15,000-70,000 yrs; Abraham was 100 yrs old when Isaac was born so that was an extra long generation)

    So would this involve that think called the emoluments clause, where a sitting President or Vice President, or member of the Administration, like a sitting Secretary of State – or their family member – financially benefits because of their, or their family member’s, Administration position?

    Here Senator Grassley is asking Sect. of Treasury Mnuchin to answer questions about business dealings with Chinese gov’t. owned industries and the son of a sitting Vice President and current Secretary of State, in a 4 page letter:

    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 Gen. 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.

    2 John (NKJV)

    7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8 Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward.

    9 Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; 11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.
