Saturday August 1st – 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 †

    Biden will delay his vice presidential pick another week. He painted himself into a corner. I think he promised Warren the spot in exchange for her staying in the race past super Tuesday to take the Bernie votes. He probably forgot he did so, promised the spot to a woman of color, now he’s screwed.
    Or, Harris is back under the knife to fix the disastrous face lift she had

    June 29 2015
    The government’s application seeks to renew authorities that have been repeatedly granted by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) since 2006, and the Court’s Primary Order directs the production of the same tangible things to the government on the same terms and subject to the same limitations that have been repeatedly approved by the FISC. In addition, by virtue of the USA FREEDOM Act’s 180-day transition period, see pages 10-12 infra, the Court is applying the same provisions of Title V of FISA to this application that were relied upon by prior FISC judges when granting previous applications. Nevertheless, the context in which the instant case arises is quite extraordinary. The FISC most recently directed production of non-content telephone call detail records in bulk to the National Security Agency (NSA) on an ongoing daily basis in an order that was issued on February 26, 2015, pursuant to Title V of FISA.

    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. Also, we pray for Angels to protect and support our Sundance as he works for justice and peace.

    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.

    For the past 30 minutes two hours, I’ve found an inordinate number of posts landing in our trash bin…for NO discernible reason. We are also experiencing high numbers of spam coming from a company called “dream proxies” mixed in.

    I’m going to fish you out as quickly as possible, and no longer take the time to explain with…”found you in the bin”. It just takes too long.

    Appreciate your patience!

    To Ponder

    Let me ponder on the wonderful prophecy of Balaam (Numbers 23):

    1. How Balaam went at the invitation of King Balak to curse the people of Israel.
    2. How, in the place of a curse, Balaam pronounced a blessing, prompted by the Spirit of God.
    3. How Balaam foretold Christ, saying: “There shall come a star out of Jacob, and a sceptre shall rise out of Israel.”

    From “The Prologue from Ohrid” by Saint Nikolai (Serbian-born Bishop who reposed in the USA and was a former prisoner at Dachau).

    Today is July 19th on the traditional Calendar of the Orthodox Christian Church and August 1st on the secular or commercial calendar.

    ton arton imon ton epiousion

    this refers to our super essential bread (not daily) = eucharist

    deliver us from the evil one (the one who is put in place of christ, in greek, INSTEAD of Christ)

    Orthodox Christianity is the fullness of the truth

    God Bless America!

    We are all flawed, may God help us with our president to restore the last land of freedom and truth!

    My American friends, I wish Trump comes again to Israel. May Trump be blessed and protected and may he win win win. I attached here the last visit of Trump from the point of view of the Israeli Secret Service who protected him along with US Security forces.

    Recent Billy Bush Interview –

    “Bush concluded with a little sermon:
    “I don’t SEE hope but I HAVE hope. My hope is the silent majority stops letting 5 people on Twitter unfairly influence events and ruin peoples’ lives. I hope that we stop letting the polar extremes dominate our politics and that we return to centrism. I hope we once again elect someone with an impressive resumé. I hope that when Twitter calls for the head of someone whose done something we’re all capable of, we unfollow those people. Or ignore them. By staying quiet or squelching our opinions and beliefs, because the threat of the mob lurks, we are contributing to a nation of liars. We are denying our humanity. As humans, we are capable of incredible acts of love and genius but also hardwired for some pretty dark stuff…we know this. Let’s return to forgiveness and spirited, fearless discourse. ”
