President Bush Asks America To Pray for The Debate with Kerry

President Bush asks for your prayers.

Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, you have the power to positively impact the very heated battle between President Bush and Senator John Kerry.

No matter who is leading the United States of America, divine intervention is needed and welcomed in the White House.

Over 2.8 million Americans have signed up as a member of The Presidential Prayer Team.

Today, on The Presidential Prayer Team site, the following list of requests were made:

Pray for the success of the presidential debates, beginning tonight. Pray for the candidates to express their views clearly and succinctly, and for Americans to be well informed and vote wisely.

As President Bush has requested an additional $7.1 billion to help AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, OH, PA, WV, and other areas, pray for those recovering from the devastation of this fourth hurricane. Pray for all efforts to help.

Pray for newly confirmed CIA Director, Porter Goss, that God's wisdom will lead him as he begins work and responds to the ideas of the 9-11 Commission.

As Taliban activity increases in Afghanistan, pray for the 17,000 American troops and 9,500 NATO peacekeepers in that country. Pray that their presence will offset efforts to disrupt October 9 elections. Continue to pray for all our troops as they stand guard around the world preserving our freedom. Give thanks to God for their faithful service.

Pray for the President, his advisors, members of the media and others as they continue to travel the country. Pray for protection, wisdom and discipline.

Give thanks for the ongoing recovery of former President Bill Clinton from his heart bypass surgery on 9/6.

With just a few days remaining until the PPT's Pray the Vote Virtual Prayer Rally, pray that every person who signed up will be faithful in their commitment to pray and that God will be honored by this effort.

To learn how you can support the president on a daily basis through prayer, go to:

Here's to healthy, adventuresome, soulful, and prayerful living -- no matter who you vote for on Tuesday, November 2nd!

Whatever you do, get out and vote!!!

"The Passion of The Christ:" An Invitation to Celebrate Easter This Year in A Movie Theatre

I never thought I'd recommend celebrating Easter in any place other than a church or on top of a hill. However, this Easter, I recommend you consider going to a movie theatre, in addition to a traditional Easter service. The movie to see is Mel Gibson's The Passion of The Christ. The response to this historic film has far exceeded the expectations of producer/director Mel Gibson and Icon Productions. They are grateful for the individual and group efforts that... more

Some Christians See 'Passion' as Evangelism Tool

New York Times: For years it was an article of faith for many Christians that the most powerful vehicle for bringing nonbelievers to Jesus was a Billy Graham crusade. Now, they expect it will be a Mel Gibson movie. Three weeks before the release of "The Passion of the Christ," a graphic portrayal of the torture and crucifixion of Jesus, Christians nationwide are busy preparing to use it in an immense grass-roots evangelistic campaign. Mr. Gibson, who produced, directed and... more

Powerful Prayer by Rev. Wright at Kansas Senate

The following prayer was given in Kansas at the opening session of their Senate. It seems prayer still upsets some people.

We know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good," but... more

Religion Brings Greater Happiness

WebMD: Pursuit of Happiness Means Less Stuff, More Purpose Dec. 11, 2003 -- We want just one thing for Christmas: more stuff. Give us a digital camera, a Burberry coat, and a Prada bag -- please. But wait: If pursuit of happiness is really your goal, forget all that. Only spirituality and a sense of purpose bring bliss, says one British researcher.

The Dalai Lama Photographer: San Francisco's Alison Wright

Boston Globe: When the Dalai Lama was in Boston this month, he was thronged by thousands of devotees.
