President Bush Tells Collegians to Pray

Earlier this week President Bush spoke to 9,000 people attending the Alf Landon Lecture at Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS. After a keynote address on the war on terror, the President fielded questions from the audience. One student asked the President’s advice to them as future leaders saying, “As a leader, as many of us are going to need to know, because we're going to be leaders in just a few years, what's the best way that you go about preparing yourself for attacks on your character, and how do you deal with others in those matters?”

President Bush: Yes, I appreciate that. I would summarize it: faith, family and friends. I am sustained mightily by the fact that millions of citizens -- for whom I'll never get to thank personally -- pray for me. It's hard for me to describe why I feel that way, why I'm so sustained. I guess it's just called faith. And I'm sustained by my family. And there's nothing better than going home to somebody who understands and is sympathetic and is part of -- we're working together. I mean, Laura's job is just as important as mine in many ways.

The girls still love me. I really love them. And then there's my man, Barney, a little Scottish terrier. I say this -- and Laura will be furious at me -- he's the son I never had, you know?

I believe in what I'm doing. And I understand politics, and it can get rough. Click here to read more of President Bush’s response to the question.

Chaplains Reassured Regarding Prayer in Jesus’ Name

The White House has agreed to pressure the Pentagon to put an end to discrimination against chaplains who pray in the name of Jesus Christ. In a story reported by the Washington Times, White House domestic policy adviser Claude Allen promised Rep. Walter B. Jones of North Carolina that the President will take up the issue personally with Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. Click here to read more.

A side note: There has been a Pastor on a fasting strike because he was told he could not pray in Jesus' Name. He refused to do otherwise. God has seen this atrocity, and He has had mercy! Thank You, Jesus, for interceding! In Jesus' Precious name I pray. And everyone said, "Amen!"
