Weekly ReCap – 08-15-2008 - Prayer

Prayer targets world's 3rd largest mission field: America

'Every great movement of God can be traced to a kneeling figure' - D.L. Moody

Cry Out America!
Peoria County Illinois - Sept. 11 2008, Noon to 1pm at the Court House

Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly. Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the LORD your God, and cry out to the LORD. Joel 1:14

On September 11, 2008 our nation will pause to remember the greatest "wake-up" call in our generation, the terrorist attacks on 9/11/01. As part of Awakening America, a call is being issued for Christians across the nation to mark this significant day in our history with powerful prayer for America and the lost individuals of this country. In every one of the 3141 counties in the United States, during the noon lunch hour on September 11, Christians will unite around their county courthouse to cry out to God with focused prayer for their community, their lost friends and family, and for the spiritual condition of our nation. { Click for Details }

- “Exclusive: Incredulous UN Bans Criticism of Islam” by Leslie Sacks, Family Security Matters
The Human Rights Council at the United Nations has now banned any criticism regarding Sharia Law and human rights in the Islamic World. According to President Doru Romulus Costea - and following the efforts of delegates from Egypt, Pakistan and Iran - the Council will no longer tolerate criticism of either Sharia or specific fatwas in the name of human rights. . . Due to this resolution the Council - and thus, perversely, the UN - is endorsing a worldview in which human interpretation and understanding has been placed beyond the pale of critical thinking and investigation as long as it’s part of Sharia Law or the Islamic tradition. Perhaps we should rename the United Nations and call it the “Nations of Islam - United in Unique and Ineffable Perfection.” Sounds appropriate.” Read on. . .

- “Addressing the oxymoron ‘pro-abortion Catholic’" by Marty Cooper,
“‘CINO’ -- or ‘Catholic in name only’ -- is an acronym used to describe a public figure who claims to be a member in good standing of a Catholic church but who supports concepts and actions that directly violate not only scripture but also their own church's codes.” Read on. . .

- “McCain Says He’d Consider Pro-Choice VP” by Associated Press,
“. . . ‘I feel that — and I’m not trying to equivocate here — that Americans want us to work together,’ McCain added. ‘You know, Tom Ridge is one of the great leaders and he happens to be pro-choice. And I don’t think that that would necessarily would rule Tom Ridge out.’” Read on. . .

- “Sanctity of Life” Constitution Party of Illinois Platform, Plank I.
“We recognize life as a gift of God. The first duty of government is to prevent the shedding of innocent blood. We affirm the legal person-hood of the pre-born, from conception until natural death to include the infirm, and terminally ill without exception.” Read on. . .

Grateful for:
