> 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
> political views.
> 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
> website: http://www.bobbyconner.org/
> 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
> 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
> and seek
> 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
> (5) any resources beneficial to equipping us to pray and intercede and
> 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
> "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things
> 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 kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us
> today our
> daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
> And lead
> us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." (NIV)
