"Hurricane Katrina was one of the worst natural disasters
in our Nation's history To honor the memory of those who lost
their lives, to provide comfort and strength to the families of
the victims, and to help ease the burden of the survivors, I call
upon all Americans to pray to Almighty God and to perform acts
of service THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH do hereby proclaim Friday,
September 16, 2005, as a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance
for the Victims of Hurricane Katrina. I ask that the people of
the United States and places of worship mark this National Day
of Prayer and Remembrance with memorial services and other appropriate
To read President Bush's full proclamation see (http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2005/09/20050908-12.html).
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence (1 Tim 2:1-2).
While prayers are being given for those affected by Hurricane Katrina, let us also pray for our President. These are trying times for all of us, especially for President Bush. Mr. Bush has had to deal with the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, numerous hurricanes, the war on terror, as well as the everyday struggles of being President of these United States of America.
I will freely sacrifice to You; I will praise Your name, O Lord, for it is good. For He has delivered me out of all trouble (Ps 54:6-7a).
My dear friend Paul Weyrich had his lower legs amputated in a DC hospital earlier this summer. While the surgery went well, he now is fighting a nasty infection. Paul has been a great blessing to The Capitol Hill Prayer Alert as well as a leading light in the Christian, conservative movement. He is a co-founder of both Heritage Foundation and Free Congress Foundation. While he is "confined" to a wheelchair, he has not stopped fighting for the soul of America.
