The Mueller Hearings

The Mueller Hearings Begin Today

Dear friends and fellow intercessors,

Depending on whom you speak with, today is either a big day for Robert Mueller . . . or not.

Please find below five articles on this topic, preceded by ONE PRAYER for all.

No matter what your plans are for today, let's all make a commitment to stay on watch, and to pray in the Spirit over the news that will unfold in these hearings on Capitol Hill. Thank you.

- Father God, we lift up the Mueller investigation, testimony, and related misconduct by federal employees. We ask You for Justice in all these matters and we pray for the permanent removal of all federal employees who have misused their positions for personal or political benefit.

- Take away the wicked before the king, and his throne will be established in righteousness. (Proverbs 25:5)

1. With Mueller testimony looming, Trump predicts trouble for special counsel and Dems - Politico

President Donald Trump predicted Monday that Robert Mueller's highly anticipated testimony before Congress this week will "be bad for him," and again suggested that the former special counsel should not answer questions from lawmakers.

Mueller is scheduled to appear Wednesday before hearings of the Judiciary committee and the House Intelligence Committee, where he will face queries from the panels' Democrats regarding the contents of his report on the findings of his 22-month investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and allegations that the president obstructed justice. Republican lawmakers, however, are expected to interrogate Mueller about alleged bias within his team of federal prosecutors, including anti-Trump sentiments expressed in text messages exchanged between FBI agent Peter Strzok and attorney Lisa Page during the bureau's separate probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails.

2. DOJ letter to Mueller instructs him to limit testimony to what was in the report - Washington Examiner

In a Monday letter to former special counsel Robert Mueller, the Department of Justice instructed the former prosecutor to limit his upcoming congressional testimony to what is already in his 448-page report that was released in April.

In response to a request for guidance on what he should and should not say during the hearing, the DOJ expressed agreement with Mueller that his testimony is largely unnecessary but expressly instructed him to stay within the bounds of what was already reported and made public.

The letter to Mueller stated, in part, "Any testimony must remain within the boundaries of your public report because matters within the scope of your investigation were covered by executive privilege, including information protected by law enforcement . . . Department witnesses should decline to address potentially privileged matters." (Read more)

3. Republicans oppose move to allow Mueller's lawyer to testify - Washington Examiner

House Republicans will oppose a move by Democrats to allow former special counsel Robert Mueller's own lawyer to testify as a witness during Wednesday's hearing.

Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, said Chairman Jerry Nadler is considering allowing Aaron Zebley, counsel for Robert Mueller, "to testify as a witness alongside the former special counsel." Zebley served as Mueller's chief of staff during Mueller's two year investigation into alleged collusion between Russians and the Trump 2016 campaign.

"If true, the chairman's unprecedented decision to allow a witness's counsel to both advise him privately and simultaneously testify alongside him shows the lengths Democrats will go to protect a one-sided narrative from a thorough examination by committee Republicans," Collins said in a statement. (Read more)

4. How Mueller deputy Andrew Weissmann's offer to an oligarch could boomerang on DOJ - The Hill

The ink was still drying on special counsel Robert Mueller's appointment papers when his chief deputy, the famously aggressive and occasionally controversial prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, made a bold but secret overture in early June 2017.

Weissmann quietly reached out to the American lawyers for Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash with a tempting offer: Give us some dirt on Donald Trump in the Russia case, and Team Mueller might make his 2014 U.S. criminal charges go away. Two years later, Weissmann's overture may have far-reaching consequences for the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), here and abroad.

Remarkably, Firtash turned down Weissmann's plea overtures even though the oligarch has been trapped in Austria for five years, fighting extradition on U.S. charges in Chicago alleging that he engaged in bribery and corruption in India related to a U.S. aerospace deal. He denies the charges. The oligarch's defense team told me that Firtash rejected the deal because he didn't have credible information or evidence on the topics Weissmann outlined.

In a sealed court filing in Austria earlier this month, Firtash's legal team compared the DOJ's 13-year investigation of Firtash to the medieval inquisitions. It cited Weissmann's overture as evidence of political motivation, saying the prosecutor dangled the "possible cessation of separate criminal proceedings against the applicant if he were prepared to exchange sufficiently incriminating statements for wide-ranging comprehensively political subject areas which included the U.S. President himself as well as the Russian President Vladimir Putin."

5. Comey's inside man at White House emerges as DOJ inspector general finalizes FISA abuse report - Washington Examiner

Former FBI Director James Comey had an inside man at the White House, feeding the bureau information about President Trump and his aides in 2017. Anthony Ferrante, a longtime FBI official, worked as a cybersecurity adviser on the National Security Council. Officials said Ferrante was working in the White House even while the FBI held him on reserve status. All the while, he was sharing information about Trump and his aides back to FBI headquarters.

This individual may be tied to an investigation into alleged surveillance abuses by the DOJ and the FBI being conducted by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz. This previously unreported mole in the White House appears in a new report by RealClearInvestigations that explored possible misconduct by Comey for what two U.S. officials described as essentially "running a covert operation against" the president even as he was assuring Trump he was not the subject of any investigation. (Read more)

Focus on Israel

1. US House overwhelmingly passes anti-BDS resolution - Times of Israel

WASHINGTON - The US House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution on Tuesday that rejects the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel, after some Democrats expressedconcern last week that the measure could cause infighting within the party leading up to the 2020 election. The bill - formally known as House Resolution 246 - also calls for increased security aid to Israel and a two-state solution. It passed by a vote of 398-17, with five abstentions. Sixteen Democrats opposed the bill, including representatives Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, the first two Muslim women elected to Congress. Both support the BDS movement. (Read more)

- Father God, once again we shout "Hallelujah" over news of this vote. Lord God, our people love Israel and wish to stand with her, always. This wicked BDS program would have served to place a stranglehold on Israel's economy. We say NO in Jesus' name, and we thank You for this tremendous show of support that was demonstrated yesterday by this bipartisan show of support for Zion:' a vote of 398-17. Praise God!

- "He who blesses you, I will bless . . ." (Gen. 12:3)

2. Israel attacks Iranian stronghold in Syria - report - Jerusalem Post

Syrian state television said on Wednesday there were reports of an Israeli attack on a strategic area in southern Syria where Western intelligence sources previously said Iranian-backed militias are known to be based.

According to Ynet, explosions began around 12:40 a.m. near the Golan Heights. Then again at 1:00 a.m. two more explosions were heard. One in the Quneitra area and another in Tel al-Hara in the northwest of Daraa. This area had long been an outpost for Russian forces but was later taken by Iranian-backed militias, according to Western intelligence sources. (Read more)

3. Israeli Envoy Reveals Iran-Hezbollah Weapons Smuggling Routes Into Lebanon at UN Security Council Meeting - Algemeiner

Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday shared Israeli intelligence information with the UN Security Council showing Iran funneling weapons to the Hezbollah terrorist organization, highlighting the continuing threat posed by the Tehran regime and its Lebanese proxy along Israel's northern border. "In the years 2018-2019, Israel found that dual-use items are smuggled into Lebanon to advance Hezbollah's rocket and missile capabilities," Danny Danon - Israel's envoy to the UN - revealed to the Security Council.

Danon said that the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), which directs Iranian interventions abroad, had begun "to advance the exploitation of the civilian maritime channels, and specifically the Port of Beirut."

Said Danon: "The Port of Beirut has become the Port of Hezbollah."(Read more)

4. Likud min.: 'Liberman might endanger the entire right-wing camp' - Israel National News

Communications Minister and Coalition Chairman David Amsalem (Likud) does not believe that neither the center-left nor religious-right blocs will be able to form a coalition.

"We pray every day to G-d," he told Kan Bet. "I think that it is crucial for the sake of the nation that the nationalist bloc lead the country, but obviously whatever G-d does is for the good."

He added: "Three months ago, we held elections, and at the end of the day, the right-wing camp without [Yisrael Beytenu Chairman MK Avigdor] Liberman won almost 65 Knesset seats. So I personally do not see that there's going to be a dramatic change in that. Usually seats don't move from one bloc to the other."

Amsalem also used the opportunity to draw the lines around the nationalist camp: "Anyone who is right-wing and belongs with the nationalistic camp will definitely vote for the Likud, and if he wants to vote for a party to the right of the Likud, then that's great. Certainly, anyone who votes for Liberman places the entire nationalist camp in danger." (Read more)

5. Israeli right-wing leaders meet to discuss unity deemed critical for election success - World Israel News

The two major leaders on the right-wing side of Israel's political map met on Tuesday morning to discuss uniting their parties as part of a technical bloc that would ensure the most number of Knesset seats in the September elections.

Ayelet Shaked, recently anointed leader of the New Right party, met with Rafi Peretz, Education Minister and leader of the Jewish Home party.

Peretz is also head of the Union of Right-Wing Parties, an alliance that includes the National Union, a party led by Transportation Minister Bezalel Smotrich. Peretz emerged from the meeting with a positive statement about the need for unity. (Read more)

The Daily Brief

1. Army Lets Slip That It's Conducting Secret Operation Around D.C. - BloombergQuint

The Pentagon has revealed a few details about a secret Army mission that has Black Hawk helicopters flying missions over the Washington, D.C., area backed by active-duty and reserve soldiers. The mysterious classified operation was disclosed when the Army asked Congress for approval to shift funds to provide an extra $1.55 million for aircraft maintenance, air crews and travel in support of an "emerging classified flight mission." "Soldiers from assault helicopter company and aviation maintenance units will be supporting the mission with 10 UH-60s and maintenance capabilities for four months," according to the document, referring to the Black Hawks. The money will also pay for a specialized "Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility" at Davison Army Airfield at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, just outside Washington. Army spokesman Wayne Hall said the operation began early in the fiscal year, which started Oct. 1, and "the duration of the mission is undetermined." (Read more)

- Father, we pray all activities of our armed forces will be in line with supporting the Constitution and protecting our people.

- And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. (Matthew 24:6)

2. Pelosi and Trump Agree to Increase Spending Over Next 2 Fiscal Years; Put No Limit on Debt Until 2021 - CNS News

President Donald Trump has come to an agreement with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D.-N.Y.) to pass a new budget law that will allow increases in discretionary spending over the next two fiscal years and place no limit on the new debt the federal government can accumulate until July 31, 2021.

Under the agreement Congressional Republicans and Democrats also agree to put no new policy riders or "poison pills" in the spending bills. "The President, Congressional leaders and the leadership of the Appropriations Committees shall work together to reach bicameral and bipartisan agreement on the orderly and timely July 22, 2019 4:45 pm consideration of FY 2020 appropriations bills to avoid a government shutdown, and a 12-bill omnibus," says the outline posted by Pelosi.

The deal effectively pushes any future legislative fights over federal spending and debt past next year's election. (Read more)

- Father, although we are thankful for agreement, we pray for long-term solutions for the chronic and immoral overspending by our federal government.

- The servant's master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go. (Matthew 18:27)

3. Trump Welcomes Prime Minister Boris Johnson: 'He Will Be Great!' - Breitbart

U.S. President Donald Trump has hailed the selection of Boris Johnson to the leadership of the United Kingdom, writing that the Conservative will be great. Trump continued: "I like Boris Johnson, I always have . . . he's a different kind of guy, but they say I'm a different kind of a guy too, we get along well," he said. "I think we'll have a very good relationship."

Former Mayor of London and foreign secretary Boris Johnson won a ballot of Conservative members Tuesday to become the new party leader, a position that brings with it the office of Prime Minister. Mr Johnson is expected to officially take on the title of Prime Minister on Wednesday afternoon. (Read more)

4. Senate confirms Esper as new Secretary of Defense in 90-8 vote - Fox News

The Senate confirmed former Army Lt. Col. Mark Esper as Secretary of Defense Tuesday, making him the first permanent Pentagon boss since James Mattis resigned last December. Esper, who served 10 years on active duty and 11 years in the National Guard and Army Reserve, was Acting Secretary before his nomination, and Patrick Shanahan had been Acting Secretary prior to that.

The vote was not close, with the Senate confirming Esper by a vote of 90-8. The no votes included 2020 Democratic presidential candidates Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., lauded Esper, calling him "a man of honor and integrity, dedicated to our nation and committed to the men and women who serve in uniform." (Read more)

- Father, we pray Lt. Col. Mark Esper will have the mind of Christ as he leads the Department of Defense for our nation.

- Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5)

5. Report: Sen. Rand Paul met Iranian foreign minister over possible talks with US - JNS

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) met with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif in New York on July 18, reported Al-Monitor, citing "a non-government expert in contact with the Iranian team."

"We're aware of reports of a supposed meeting between a U.S. senator and Zarif," said the U.S. official. "It's unclear how productive a conversation with Zarif would be, given his limited role in making decisions on behalf of the Iranian regime. The president has said several times that he is willing to talk with Iran. However, the regime has shown no signs they're ready to meet diplomacy with diplomacy."

On Friday, U.S. President Donald Trump confirmed that he has permitted Paul to talk to the Iranians. "Rand is a friend of mine, and Rand asked me if he could get involved. The answer is 'yes,' and if the other senators ask me to get involved, I'd probably say 'yes,' depending on who they were," the president told reporters at the White House. "I have many people involved, and Iran is going to work out very nicely." (Read more)

- Father, we pray this outreach to Iran will be ultimately successful, leading to de-escalation of conflict, normalization of relations, and stability for the Middle East.

- We all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic, 'Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.' (Acts 26:14)

6. Trump admin. delays ban on federally-funded family planning centers giving abortion referrals - Christian Post

On Saturday evening, the Health and Human Services Department sent a notice to Planned Parenthood affiliates and others explaining that the new rule's enforcement would be delayed until Sept. 18, according to The Washington Post and The Associated Press. The notice stated that the recipients must soon provide assurance that they do "not include abortion as a method of family planning" and submit an "action plan" which will describe the ways they plan to comply with the various aspects of the new federal rules, reported Amy Goldstein of the Post.

In February, HHS announced that it had finalized a rule banning Title X funding of abortion as a means of family planning. "This final rule ensures that grants and contracts awarded under this program fully comply with the statutory program integrity requirements, thereby fulfilling the purpose of Title X, so that more women and men can receive services that help them consider and achieve both their short-term and long-term family planning needs," stated HHS.

Last week, when administration officials announced the rule, they had stated that the abortion referral ban would take effect immediately. (Read more)

- Father God, we pray this delay will not lead to more abortions. For those whose lives hang in the balance, may their mothers only tune into words of encouragement and life.

- The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. (John 10:10)

7. Microsoft invests $1 billion in artificial intelligence project co-founded by Elon Musk - CNBC

Microsoft is investing $1 billion in Elon Musk's OpenAI to build artificial intelligence that can tackle more complex tasks, the companies announced Monday. The companies said the technology they plan to build, artificial general intelligence (AGI), will be able to solve more complex problems that AI currently is capable of. "OpenAI and Microsoft's vision is for artificial general intelligence to work with people to help solve currently intractable multidisciplinary problems, including global challenges such as climate change, more personalized healthcare and education."

Microsoft and OpenAI chose to work together based on "shared principles on ethics and trust," according to the release. "We believe that the creation of beneficial AGI will be the most important technological development in human history, with the potential to shape the trajectory of humanity," OpenAI wrote. (Read more)

- Father God, we lift up our concern that this Artificial Intelligence, like all technologies, will be used for evil purposes. Protect us and give us wisdom.

- When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. (Psalm 94:19)

8. Libraries Want Children Checking Out Trash - Liberty Council

The American Library Association (ALA) recently held its annual national conference and provided librarians from across the country with strategies for bringing LGBT propaganda, pornography, and "drag queen story times" for children into primarily taxpayer-funded public libraries while avoiding parents' knowledge.

More than 21,000 people attended the 2019 week-long conference in June, approximately 4,000 more than last year. The conference featured more than 100 workshops with an "equity, diversity, and inclusion" themes.

The workshop titled "Censorship Beyond Books" also instructed librarians about learning strategies to prepare them for backlash after promoting "drag queen story times. The ALA also provides librarians "crisis communication plans" to "shield themselves" from events or materials they provide using public resources that generate a public backlash, such as the "drag queen story hours." (Read more)

- Father, we ask You to protect our children from the deceitful plans of wicked men - help them turn from their ways and follow You before they experience Your judgement.

- But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6)

9. School excludes brothers from sports over 'religious promise' - WND

A Texas school district has been warned that "the law is clear" and it will lose in court if it doesn't reverse its decision to ban two brothers from activities such as football because of the length of their hair.

The Mathis Independent School Board prohibits boys from participating in extracurricular activities if their hair is longer than collar-length. But the Texas Association of School Boards requires districts to "accommodate requests for exceptions based on a student or parent's sincerely held religious belief," argues Montse Alvarado, a spokesman for the non-profit legal group Becket. Becket wrote a letter to the district on behalf of Cesar and Diego Gonzales warning it is bound to lose the case. The boys each have a small strand of long hair that they have vowed not to cut because of a promise their Roman Catholic family made to God. (Read more)

- Lord, we ask that the courts would allow religious freedom for Americans, regardless of whether someone agrees or disagrees with the action. We pray for the two boys, that they and their parents will come into the personal knowledge of Jesus Christ.

- "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." (John 8:36)

10. 9/11 victims' fund bill passes Senate, ending months of doubts for 'ecstatic' first responders - Fox News

The Senate overwhelmingly passed a bipartisan bill to ensure a victims' compensation fund related to the Sept. 11 attacks never runs out of money, ending months of uncertainty as the fund rapidly depleted.

Lawmakers sent the bill to President Trump's desk after a 97-2 vote in favor of the legislation. Only two Republicans, Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee, voted no.

"The bill's going to get passed today, and the bill's going to go to the president, who's going to sign it on Friday. The White House called me this morning -- for the men and women that I keep bringing down here after 15 years, and I'm just so ecstatic for them" Feal said on "America's Newsroom" Tuesday. (Read more)

- Thank you, Lord!

- "Praise the LORD, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples." (Psalm 117:1)

11. Breaking! Environmental protesters glue themselves to tunnels under Capitol - Fox News

Environmental protesters caused a ruckus Tuesday after gluing themselves to two doorways connecting the Cannon Building to the U.S. Capitol in a bid to stop members of Congress from an evening vote.

The six protesters were with the D.C. chapter of the U.K.-based environmental group "Extinction Rebellion." "We are superglued to the tunnels under the Capitol because what other choice do we have when our politicians choose money over life?" read a tweet from Extinction Rebellion Washington, D.C.

Pictures posted on the group's Twitter page show the protesters linking hands while wearing yellow hazard signs that read: "Declare climate emergency." "Sorry for the inconvenience, but we're not going back to business as usual until we declare a #ClimateEmergency and get #ClimateJustice for everyone, everywhere," read another post.

Capitol Police set up another doorway for lawmakers so they could make their way through the Rayburn tunnel for votes despite the demonstrators' chanting "This entranceway is closed." (Read more)

- Father God, if we ever thought that things are beginning to spin out of control in Congress,this report seems to prove that fact. Help us, O Lord, to come back to our RIGHT MINDS - especially for those who govern our nation. In Your name, amen.

- "But we have the mind of Christ." (I Corinthians 2:16)

Finding truth in fake news

There is a CSPAN video circulating the internet allegedly of Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) discussing the Islamic plan to make America Islam and replace US laws with Sharia law. The original twitter feed says it is Tlaib in 1989. I checked CSPAN and found that the video in question was attributed to Sharifa Alkhateeb, a Muslim educator sharing her ultimate goal of Muslim education in America. Alkhateeb and Tlaib look alike, but Tlaib would have been only 10 years old when the speech was videotaped on CSPAN. Plus, if this had been Tlaib, this info likely would have surfaced during her campaign. Notwithstanding, there is much more disturbing info circulating about the other Muslim congresswoman, Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Investigative reporter and former editor at PJ Media, David Steinberg, has investigated Omar's background and has found evidence of criminal activity. He has written five in-depth stories about Omar and her deceptive, if not illegal, activities since coming to the United States. In his first story August 13, 2018, Steinberg pieced together court records to document that Omar committed perjury by marrying her own brother to assist him in committing immigration fraud. Another Steinberg story documented that Omar was living with her first husband while married to her brother, and that she may have committed fraud to obtain student loans. Steinberg's latest story documents a complicated scheme by Omar's family to commit immigration fraud, from which she benefits today.
Steinberg reports that Omar did not flee war-torn Somalia, but rather was part of a family that already had been granted asylum in Great Britain. Steinberg writes:"In 1995, Ilhan entered the United States as a fraudulent member of the "Omar" family. That is not her family. The Omar family is a second, unrelated family which was being granted asylum by the United States. The Omars allowed Ilhan, her genetic sister Sahra, and her genetic father Nur Said to use false names to apply for asylum as members of the Omar family. . . Ilhan Abdullahi Omar's name, before applying for asylum, was Ilhan Nur Said Elmi. Her father's name before applying for asylum was Nur Said Elmi Mohamed. Her sister Sahra Noor's name before applying for asylum was Sahra Nur Said Elmi."
Steinberg has documented an entire system of fraud surrounding Omar, yet the media refuses to follow his lead in reporting it. Steinberg says Phyllis Kahn, who held Omar's congressional seat for 22 years, says the lack of reporting is due to fear of "not wanting to appear racist." Both Tlaib and Omar have made racist, anti-Semitic remarks and stand by them. Their words and actions are well documented. Fake news stories about Tlaib and Omar do not have to be made up. The truth is far more condemning. Yet pointing this information out is considered racist. Oh, how the truth is perverted. Think about this: Christ said in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me," and in John 8:32, "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." No Christ, no truth. Know Christ, know truth. Seek truth.

Have a blessed and powerful day,

Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:17)


[Verse 1]

If I survey all the good things that come to me from above
If I count all the blessings from the storehouse of love
I'd simply ask for the favor of him beyond mortal king
And I'm sure he would grant it again


I want to stroll over Heaven with you some glad day
When all our troubles and heartaches are vanished away
Then we'll enjoy the beauty where all things are new
I want to stroll over Heaven with you

[Verse 2]

So many places of beauty we long to see here below
But time and treasures have kept us from making plans as you know
But come the morning of rapture together we'll stand a new
While I stroll over Heaven with you

When all our troubles and heartaches are vanished away
Then we'll enjoy the beauty where all things are new

Where will the West's next deadly wildfire strike? The risks are everywhere

It started when hot autumn winds snapped a power line east of Paradise, California, showering the ground with sparks. Flames shot up in dry grass near the Feather River, fanned into nearby pine trees and raced 8 miles to town. Eighty-five people died and nearly 19,000 buildings were destroyed in the Camp Fire, the state's deadliest wildfire. No one could have anticipated such a catastrophe, people said. The fire's speed was unprecedented, the ferocity unimaginable, the devastation unpredictable.

Those declarations were simply untrue. Though the toll may be impossible to predict, worst-case fires are a historic and inevitable fact. And the same factors that doomed Paradise also put hundreds of other towns at risk, according to an Arizona Republic and USA TODAY analysis of fire hazards across 760 million acres of the American West.
But the wildfire hazard potential, or WHP, is only the first step in assessing human risk. Risks can rise further . . . (USA Today) Read more
- Father God, we pray tonight for the safety of all who may be in danger in this year's fire season. We ask that Your Mighty Hand of protection would rest upon each one. We ask for Your divine intervention for each one. In Your Name, amen!
- "If you say, "The Lord is my refuge," and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent." (Psalm 91:9,10)

Buzz Aldrin's moment with God on the moon

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon, a major milestone in human history. As Neil Armstrong noted, as he stepped on the lunar surface, "One small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind." Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin planted the American flag on the moon, as they explored it for some 21 hours.

What was the first meal on the moon? It may surprise you to know that it was bread and wine in a one-person celebration of the Lord's Table. As Neil Armstrong respectfully looked on, fellow Apollo 11 astronaut, Buzz Aldrin marked the incredible occasion by celebrating Holy Communion---communing between him and God. This was before they stepped out of the "Eagle," the lunar module, to walk around on the moon.
