Zuriel… Shiznittle!

Check dis.  Reading through the book of Numbers today I found some dope names.

Name:  Zuriel
Meaning:  My Rock is God.

Name:  Uzziel
Meaning:  My Strength is God.

Name:  Abihail
Meaning:  My Divine Father is Power.

Man, I really like those names…  I think I’m going to name my son one of those, especially Zuriel…  shiznittle!…  I probably should ask my wife first…

In other news…  I found this article to be rather interesting.

When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate,
everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:

“Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and
to seek your direction and guidance.

We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

We confess that we have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and callit Pluralism.

We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.

We have abused power and called it politics.

We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.

Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the center of
Your will and to openly ask these things in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ.


The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during
the prayer in protest..

In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor,
logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively.

The church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer
from India, Africa and Korea.

Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, “The Rest
of the Story,” and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired.

With the Lord’s help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and
wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called “one
nation under God.”

I thought that was pretty dope.  Truth is good stuff.

Have a great week.  We only have 2 weeks left…  Thank You Lord.
