Bush Proclaims annual National Day of Prayer and Asks for 25 Billion More

By

Although Not in the Headline news,the first Thursday in May is

National Day of Prayer. You will need Adobe Acrobat for this.


From CNN.com
Bush asks for $25 billion more for Iraq, Afghanistan.

Official: Bush chastises Rumsfeld.


And on the subject of elections, and quality of leadership, from the Boston Globe, Common Dreams.org Five Qualities of Leaders We Can Trust by Diana Chapman Walsh.

With Saturday the anniversary of VE Day, it is interesting to note this quote from Ike -

Dwight D. Eisenhower
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed.

Can we make this an International Day of Prayer, not by decree, not by proclamation, but with our hearts?
