Wed, 20 Dec 2000 09:25:32 +1300
Dear Crosswire.org members,
If I have committed a terrible blunder by posting this message at this
electronic group, I humbly and sincerely beg for your forgiveness, and I
promise not to do it again.
I have a tremendous burden to encourage and stimulate Christians to watch
and pray for America and in particular, George W Bush, regardless of
I would like to invite you to join “WATCHMENUNITE”. WATCHMENUNITE is an
electronic internet-enabling email delivery group (egroup) for sending and
receiving messages about how to pray for America and the Presidency of
George W Bush.
The first message uploaded onto our website at:
contains a testimony about George W Bush, found at Bobby & Carolyn Conner’s
This group is dedicated to alert, rally and equip Christians to pray
effectively and consistently for the Presidency of George W Bush. I
believe the Lord spoke to me
in the shower one day to set up this group.
The focus is to watch and pray as Jesus instructed his disciples.
TO WARN THE PEOPLE:
"Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the
word I speak and give them warning from me." (Ezekiel 33:7, NIV)
TO PRAY 2 CHRONICLES 7:14:
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray
my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and
forgive their sin and will heal their land." (NIV)
TO KNOW HOW TO PRAY:
"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father,
give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him
that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already
briefly" (Ephesians 1:17 and 3:3, NIV)
We will focus our efforts on:
(1) news regarding the GW Bush administration;
(2) personal information about the GW Bush team;
(3) any prophecies, words of wisdom or revelations about the GW Bush team;
(4) any domestic or international matters impacting the GW Bush Presidency;
(5) any resources beneficial to equipping us to pray and intercede and hear
from God more effectively in the Name of Jesus Christ.
I would like to strongly encourage people to pray and post messages about
news stories, events, prophecies, personalities that are relevant to the
issues we are focusing on. If news articles are posted, please provide a
brief summary of prayer points as bullet points AT THE BEGINNING of the
message, as many people will not have time to read in depth the important
messages you post.
WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN TAKING SIDES IN ANY POLITICAL DEBATES, BUT IN
PRAYING THE WILL OF GOD FOR AMERICA AND GW BUSH, according to Matthew 6:33:
"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will
given to you as well" (NIV)
and according to the prayer which Jesus taught his disciples (MATTHEW
"This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your
your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us
daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." (NIV)

Please do not send or open any messages from this group with attachments.
This is a simple precaution against virus attacks on the group.
We want to stimulate Christians to pray effectively and encourage others to
do so consistently on a sustainable basis as a lifestyle – whether it is 5
to 60 minutes at the beginning or end of the day, throughout the day as the
Lord is allowed to instruct (if we are willing to listen), or 10 times
throughout the day on the hour for 5 minutes etc.
Please send me an email if you have any questions to ask.
God Bless you all in the Name of Jesus Christ,
