Vanity | May 20, 2018 | Eagles6
Dear Freepers, I am requesting prayers for my parents who will be married 65 yrs this Nov.

She was home and doing well, then readmitted for a low hemoglobin count. They found bleeding ulcers from Advil but are doing a lower GI tomorrow to rule out anything else. Dad is disabled Vet who taught at the university level for 35 yrs. He was a Master Sgt. in the US Army and was blinded in his right...

Proverb 20 (NKJV) Wine Is a Mocker 01 Wine is a mocker, 00 Strong drink is a brawler, 00 And whoever is led astray by it is not wise. 02 The wrath of a king is like the roaring of a lion; 00 Whoever provokes him to anger sins against his own life. 03 It is honorable for a man to stop striving, 00 Since any fool can start a quarrel. 04 The lazy man will not plow because of winter; 00 He will beg during harvest and have nothing. 05 Counsel in the heart of man is like...

So Esther approached and touched the tip of the scepter. 3 Then the king asked,...

Sympathy and charity are the natural reactions to a tragedy. Using the deaths of innocent people as an immediate platform for political gain is inhuman. So, naturally, thats the route Hollywood elitists chose to take just hours after the school shooting in Santa Fe that left 10 dead and several injured. Actors and actresses attacked everything they could get their hands on with blind, misdirected rage and virtuous grandstanding. It was like a wake of ghoulish vultures, screeching YOUR PRAYERS DONT WORK. As politicians and others offered their thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families, eager entertainers pounced...

 (Old Testament) Esther 4 Mordecai Persuades Esther to Help 4 When Mordecai learned of all that had been done, he tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and ashes, and went out into the city, wailing loudly and bitterly. 2 But he went only as far as the king’s gate, because no one clothed in sackcloth was allowed to enter it. 3 In every province to which the edict and order of the king came, there was great mourning among the Jews, with fasting, weeping and wailing. Many lay in sackcloth and ashes....

Key words: Proverb 19 (NKJV) The Fear of the Lord Leads to Life 01 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity 00 Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool. 02 Also it is not good for a soul to be without knowledge, 00 And he sins who hastens with his feet. 03 The foolishness of a man twists his way, 00 And his heart frets against the LORD. 04 Wealth makes many friends, 00 But the poor is separated from his friend. 05 A false witness will not go unpunished, 00 And he...

Vulnerable senators up for reelection have adopted a strategy of silence in response to the presidents avalanche of putdowns. Jon Tester was on his farm in rural Montana when his phone rang with the news: It was his chief of staff, informing him that the president of the United States had just called for his resignation on Twitter. The Montana Democrat briefly considered President Donald Trumps latest attack on him, then fired up his tractor and went on his way. Tester wasnt going to get into it with Trump over the senators role in bringing down the presidents Veterans Affairs...

 (Old Testament) Esther 3 Haman’s Plot to Destroy the Jews 3 After these events, King Xerxes honored Haman son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, elevating him and giving him a seat of honor higher than that of all the other nobles. 2 All the royal officials at the king’s gate knelt down and paid honor to Haman, for the king had commanded this concerning him. But Mordecai would not kneel down or pay him honor. 3 Then the royal officials at the king’s gate asked Mordecai, “Why do you disobey the king’s command?”...

Proverb 18 (NKJV) The Name of the LORD Is a Strong Tower 01 A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; 00 He rages against all wise judgment. 02 A fool has no delight in understanding, 00 But in expressing his own heart. 03 When the wicked comes, contempt comes also; 00 And with dishonor comes reproach. 04 The words of a man's mouth are deep waters; 00 The wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook. 05 It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, 00 Or to overthrow the righteous in judgment. 06 A fool's...

St. Ambrose Colleges Segregated Muslim Prayer Room Reveals Chilling Reality

The Revolutionary Act ^ | 05/17/18
That St. Ambrose College in Davenport, Iowa has opened a sex-segregated prayer room for Muslim students requires an explanation. On the surface, it seems totally bizarre. Why exactly do Muslims want to go to an explicitly Catholic college and why is that now-progressive Catholic college proudly violating normative standards of equal treatment for men and women? The answer is found in why feminists have turned into crickets on select overt sexism when they howl outrages over only perceived slights against women. Muslims, feminists and most American progressives have a common enemy: Americas Judeo-Christian heritage, which they have been working to...

The Necessity of Grateful Prayer

Grace To You.org ^ | 1997 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God (Philippians 4:6). Genuine believers will react thankfully to trials and suffering. Preventive spiritual maintenance is very important. If we are disciplined believers, well practice it and prepare ourselves for any kind of trials and hardships. Then when the unexpected happens, well be able to respond in a godly manner and truly appreciate what the Lord is teaching us. The attitude expressed in todays verse is basic and is one of the strongest antidotes to fear and lack of preparation...
