Psalm 100:2-4

    Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.

For joy that will last, always put Christ first.

Mitt Romney jokes at Obama, “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate” at a rally of 7,000 in Commerce, Michigan.

Romney told supporters that he and Ann had been born at nearby hospitals.

No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”

No, no, not a swipe,. I’ve said throughout the campaign and before, there’s no question about where he was born. He was born in the U.S. This was fun about us, and coming home. And humor, you know — we’ve got to have a little humor in a campaign.”

Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt quickly denounced the remark,

embraced the most strident voices in his party instead of standing up to them.”

Is Obama for America getting testy before the GOP convention in Tampa, Florida?

Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, stated,

R.N.C. convention officials and the Romney campaign are working closely with state, local and federal officials, as well as the Secret Service, to monitor Tropical Storm Isaac and preserve Florida’s emergency management resources.

Our first priority is ensuring the safety of delegates, alternates, guests, members of the media attending the Republican National Convention and citizens of the Tampa Bay area.”

The Republican National Convention will take place and officially nominate Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, and the party has other necessary business it must address, We also are remaining in constant contact with state and federal officials and may make additional schedule alterations as needed.”

Russ Schreifer, top aid to Mitt Romney declared,

We will absolutely be able to get our message out, “We still have an opportunity to tell the story of the last four years of how President Obama has failed the country.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

God our Father,
Giver of life,
we entrust the United States of America to Your loving care.

You are the rock on which this Nation was founded.
You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your people.
 
Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nations leaders.
Open their minds to the great worth of human life
and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom.
Remind Your people who true happiness is rooted in seeking
and doing Your will.

Through the intercession of Jesus Christ
grant us the courage to reject the “culture of death.”
Lead us into a new millennium of life.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.

In this I pray

amen

Luke 9:23-24

23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. 24 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.

If we hold on to God’s truth, we won’t be trapped by Satan’s lies.

John 10:29

29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.

Hebrews 12:4-11

In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,

“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,
because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”[a]

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline —then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. 11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
