god's fiat

been thinking of two passages from the bible the last few weeks: isaiah 45:7 I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things & exodus 33:19 I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

{1} Heavenly Father. We have been awakened to danger & called to defend freedom. Our grief has turned to anger & we seek to bring our enemies to justice. The enemies of freedom committed an act of war against our country & we have suffered casualties of war in the midst of one of our peaceful cities. Freedom is under attack. Who attacked our country? O Lord answer us in our time of grief.

Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists, and every government that supports them. They hate democratically elected governments; they hate our freedoms & they stand against us, because we stand in their way. How will we fight and win this war?

O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth ... shew thyself. For Vengeance is yours Lord & you will repay. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

Remove sorrow from our hearts. And from every city, from every nation & from our beloved planet ... lift this great veil of evil from thy creation.

{2} Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

Blessed be the Lord God, and may His holy name be blessed for ever and ever ... place in my mouth the blessing of righteousness, that I may bless the Nation of Iraq.

Blessed art thou, Lord of Righteousness and God of the Ages. To the Nation of Iraq, my mouth and my tongue praise thee greatly. May He bless thee beyond all the generations of men.

May He give thee the path of righteousness and reveal righteousness to thy seed. And may He make thy sons & daughters many during thy life, and may they arise according to the number of the months of the year. And may their sons & daughters become many and great beyond the stars of heaven, and their numbers be more than the sand of the sea. May thy name and thy seed endure to all the ages, may the God of righteousness dwell with you always; Blessed be he that blesseth thee, and all flesh that curseth thee falsely may it be cursed. May the Lord of the world love thee as the heart of thy mother and her affection rejoice in thee and bless thee.

And may He protect the goodly land of Iraq that they hold it as a possession for ever. On the great day of peace may they have peace.

Together may we follow peace with all men, and with holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. May we be blessed with the peace of God, which passeth all understanding.

{3} The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Dear Heavenly Father, I serve at the pleasure of the Governor of the sovereign state of Louisiana. Lord, hear our prayers. May the LORD hear thee in the day of trouble and the name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob defend thee.

Jehovah-chanan show mercy; Jehovah-racham show compassion. Pass by New Orleans My Lord and hold the levees.

El Shaddai, may they walk before you and be perfect. Jehovah-jireh provide sustenance; Jehovah-nissi be their banner; Jehovah-shalom send them peace; Jehovah-tsidkenu be their righteousness & Jehovah-shammah ... be there.

after every presidential election, i have prayed the same prayer for the president. i felt it was my duty as an american. it didn't matter if they were democrats or republicans, or if i loved them or hated them. because i recognized the difference between politics & governing. it went something like this...

i pray for the president's happiness, health & well-being. please protect & guide him.
