Quote of the Week

"If prayer puts God to work on earth, then prayerlessness rules God out of the world's affairs, and prevents Him from working. Prayerlessness excludes God from everything concerning men, and leaves man in this world with its tremendous responsibilities and its difficult problems, and with all of its sorrows, burdens and afflictions, without any God at all. The denial of prayer is a denial of God Himself, for God and prayer are so inseparable that they can never be divorced."

E.M. Bounds (1835-1913)

Who is Barack Hussein Obama and how will he be judged by history?  More importantly, how is his legacy as a leader of the Free World seen by the God of Heaven?

Here is my humble assessment. I'd love to hear yours.
