Think About the Value of Time For a Wise Solution

Clocks continue to tick away the seconds, minutes and hours as constant reminders that time never stops. When individuals think about their lives, they need to consider the significance of time. Every person who lives has tremendous value. The opportunity to view time as an enemy or a friend presents itself to every man, woman, boy and girl. The latter option, choosing time as a friend, often influences persons to reach certain measures of success in their lives.

Value the importance of time by refraining from the frivolous waste of precious moments in life. Prayer and deep introspection frequently yield new insights into problems that seem impossible to solve. Every bad situation has a good solution, and those who take the time to seek wise solutions benefit from spending their time wisely. Whether the problem revolves around an economic crisis, including a stock or mutual fund investment, a job or a new location, the careful consideration of all options serves to help an individual make a better decision.

Baltic Sea Message In A Bottle Connects Strangers

Twenty-four years ago, a letter in a bottle was tossed into the Baltic Sea by a five-year-old German child named Frank Uesbeck . The message in the bottle stated these simple words: "My name is Frank, and I'm five years old. My dad and I are traveling on a ship to Denmark. If you find this letter, please write back to me, and I will write back to you."

Amazingly, Daniil Korotkikh, a thirteen year old Russian teenager, recently saw this same bottle while he was walking on a beach, picked it up, and saw a message in the bottle. The five year old child named Frank Uesbeck is now twenty-nine years old and still lives at the same exact address in Coesfeld, Germany. With the help of a video link on the Internet, these two strangers from different parts of the world met each other this month. See the article Baltic Sea letter in a bottle found 24 years later.

Commentary: Who would have thought that a letter inserted into a bottle by a five-year-old German child would be discovered by a thirteen-year-old Russian teenager 24 years later? This story demonstrates the fact that truth can indeed be stranger than fiction. Who would have thought that a message inserted into a bottle by a five-year-old German child would be discovered by a thirteen-year-old Russian teenager 24 years later?

Furthermore, who would have thought that these two strangers would eventually become acquaintances? What are the chances of something like this occurring? My guess would be that the odds of something like this happening would be about 1 in 1 million. God can answer prayers, and a little five-year-old boy's hope or prayer that someone would find his letter in a bottle has been answered. This is something for atheists and agnostics to ponder.

Memorial Day Prayer For American Soldiers and Heroes

I wrote this prayer for American soldiers, heroes and everyone who seeks God's face. I ask God to bless all of you.

If you have been the target of physical, intellectual, or emotional intolerance, this prayer is also for you.

King James Bible
Psalm 24:6: "This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah." 1

King James Bible
Psalm 27:8: "When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek." 2
Memorial Day Prayer For American Soldiers and Heroes

May you always be blessed by the one, true God.

May He always lift you up out of depression and hopelessness.

May you always be directed and guided by Him whenever you need to make decisions about anything important in your life.

May you learn to be tolerant toward those that believe differently than you do.

May you learn to be tolerant toward those of other ethnic and religious backgrounds.

May you understand that God's tolerance far surpasses your imperfect interpretation.

May you come to an understanding that even those who vehemently protest belief in God may, in fact, be closer to Him than you realize. Sometimes protest is an outward form of an inner spiritual struggle.

May you continue to walk on a good and righteous path, and may no harm or evil ever befall you.

May you never give your fear the power to destroy your dreams.

National Day of Prayer: A Factual Look At Congress And American History

The National Day of Prayer was not established by President George W. Bush, contrary to what Michael Stone of the Portland Progressive Examiner wrote on April 15, 2010:
The National Day of Prayer service was started by George W. Bush. It was an openly evangelical Christian affair, and was highly inappropriate for an official White House function. It was offensive to all non Christians. Christians must learn that not everyone subscribes to their silly superstition. Their superstition has no business being privileged or even recognized by the federal government.
Author's Commentary: Thank you, Michael Stone, for enlightening all of us about the "silly superstition" called Christianity. In fact, thank you, Michael Stone, for enlightening us about your personal beliefs, and for sharing your completely biased, and obviously liberal, thoughts with conservative Americans who don't happen to agree with you. God exists, Michael Stone, and your beliefs don't change the facts about God, Christianity, and the Bible. 

Here are a few historical facts about National Prayer in America: the first day of National Prayer in America took place in 1775 due to a declaration of the Continental Congress. President George Washington declared a day of Public Thanksgiving and Prayer on February 19, 1795. The National Day of Prayer, as recognized by Christians today, was a bill unanimously passed by Congress on April 17, 1952, and signed by President Harry Truman. The decision to have the National Day of Prayer on the first Thursday in May was made in 1988. {2}

On April 14, 2010, Wisconsin Judge Barbara Crabb decided that The National Day of Prayer is not constitutional. {1}

"The lawsuit against the National Day of Prayer was brought in Wisconsin by a group of atheists and agnostics called the Freedom From Religion Foundation, which argued that it violated the separation of church and state." {1}

Author's Commentary: Congress started the National Day of Prayer approximately 58 years ago. The atheist, secular humanist Freedom from Religion Foundation, co-founded by atheist and co-president Dan Barker, was the moving force behind Judge Barbara Crabb's decision. *See My Related Posts below
*See above quotation.
President Barack Hussein Obama, in spite of his persistent, yet highly questionable, insistence that he is a Christian, will not be holding the National Day of Prayer service at the White House today. What else is there to expect from President Barack Hussein Obama's self-proclaimed Christian faith? President Barack Obama walked out of the National Prayer Breakfast right before Christian quarterback Tim Tebow said his prayer. *See My Related Posts below.
I can't help but wonder if President Barack Hussein Obama would have canceled the National Day of Prayer service at the White House if the prayers to be recited were Muslim prayers. You think?

What will President Obama pray about at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, February 4? Barack Obama has a lot to pray about, but will his prayers, if any, be available to all Americans?

Quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to speak at the National Prayer Breakfast. Tim Tebow is a Christian believer in God and the Bible, and  lives his life as a Christian.

Tim Tebow is not afraid to let his fans know about his moral values, his Christian faith, and his belief in the Bible. Tim Tebow is also going to be featured in an already controversial anti-abortion Super Bowl ad.

When conservatives pray with liberals, who knows what might happen?

TIM Tebow and Barack Obama To Attend National Prayer Breakfast

Tim Tebow's agent told Politico that he will be attending the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, February 4. Quarterback Tim Tebow is the winner of the Heisman Trophy, and Tebow will also appear in a pro-life ad during the Super Bowl. {1} 
Asked if Tebow will speak at the breakfast, his agent, Susan Vanderlinde, said, “Yes, I believe he is.”

President Obama and several lawmakers plan to attend the breakfast. {1}
Tebow, who just finished his last football season at the University of Florida, has crossed over from sports to politics and religion: He will appear in an ad paid for by the conservative Christian group, Focus on the Family, during the Super Bowl. {1}


Author's Note: Let's hope that President Obama and the several lawmakers attending the prayer breakfast receive new inspiration and insight from quarterback Tim Tebow about the right way (no pun intended) to provide leadership for Americans.

Tim Tebow is not afraid to let his fans know about his Christian faith, belief in God, and love for the Bible, and Tim Tebow's fans appreciate his honesty and moral values.

Memorial Day Prayer For Soldiers and Those Who Mourn

Here is an excerpt from a Memorial Day Prayer:

"God, lift the hearts of those for whom this holiday is not just diversion,but painful memory and continued deprivation.Bless those whose dear ones have died needlessly, wastefully [as it seems]in accident or misadventure.We remember with compassion those who have died serving their countries in the futility of combat." 1
