THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN NEWS TODAY ON THIS

MEMORIAL DAY.

I'M EPHRAIM GRAHAM.

POPE FRANCIS IS CALLING

FOR PEACE AND

RECONCILIATION IN HIS

"VISIT TO ISRAEL, AND"

ANOTHER IMPORTANT SUBJECT

"ON THIS TRIP, THE BRUTAL"

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

Reporter: AT ISRAEL'S

"AIRPORT, SHARON PERES AND"

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU GREETED

THE PONTIFF.

POPE FRANCIS' VISIT IS THE

THIRD PAPEL TRIP TO ISRAEL

SINCE THE YEAR 2000.

HE CAME WITH THE GOAL OF

"BUILDING BRIDGES, AND"

BRIDGING THE POLITICAL

DIVIDE BETWEEN ISRAELIS

AND PALESTINIAN.

FRANCIS ISSUED A SURPRISE

INVITATION TO PEREZ AND

"PRESIDENT ABBAS, TO PRAY"

TOGETHER AT THE VATICAN.

BOTH ACCEPTED AND PLAN TO

COME TO ROME IN EASTERLY

JUNE.

FRANCIS PRAYED AT THE

WESTERN WALL AND VISITED

"YAD VISHEM, AND HE PRAYED,"

"NEVER AGAIN, LORD, NEVER"

AGAIN.

ONE MAJOR REASON FOR THE

"VISIT, SIGNING A DOCUMENT."

IT MARKS THE 50th

ANNIVERSARY OF THE END OF

A RIFT BETWEEN THE EASTERN

AND WESTERN CHURCHES THAT

"BEGAN NEARLY 1,000 YEARS"

AGO.

THEY ALSO EXPRESSED GRAVE

CONCERN FOR CHRISTIANS

PERSECUTION IN THE MIDDLE

"EAST, AN ISSUE ADDRESSED"

BY ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

NETANYAHU.

YOU'RE HOLDING US IN

THE HEART OF THE MIDDLE

"EAST, THE TURBULENT AND"

"VIOLENT MIDDLE EAST, WHERE"

CHRISTIANS ARE OFTEN

PERSECUTED.

ISRAEL IS AN ISLAND OF

TOLERANCE.

WE HOPE THAT HE ALSO

BASKS IN THE HOLINESS OF

"JERUSALEM, AND THERE IS"

ACCESS FOR ALL STATES FOR

THEIR PLACES OF WORSHIP.

Reporter: DURING HIS

"TRIP, FRANCIS CALLED FOR A"

TWO-STATE SOLUTION.

THAT MEANS A DIVIDED

"JERUSALEM, SINCE THE"

PALESTINIANS ALSO WANT THE

CITY AS THEIR CAPITAL.

"CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS."

AND FOR MORE OF CHRIS'

EXCLUSIVE REPORTING FROM

"ISRAEL, MAKE SURE YOU"

WEEKLY BLOG.

VOTERS IN EGYPT ARE

HEADING TO THE POLLS TO

PICK THEIR NEXT PRESIDENT.

THE THE VOTE COMES AFTER

MOHAMMED MORSI WAS OUSTED

FROM POWER LAST YEAR.

FORMER ARMY CHIEF ASSISI

IS EXPECTING TO WIN THE

PRESIDENCY.

HE IS THE MAN RESPONSIBLE

FOR MOHAMMED MORSI'S

"OUSTER, AND HAS RISEN TO"

BECOME THE MOST POWERFUL

POLITICAL FIGURE AMONG

EGYPT'S 53 MILLION

REGISTERED VOTERS.

EXIT POLES IN UKRAINE SHOW

THAT A 48-YEAR-OLD

BUSINESSMAN HAS BEEN

ELECTED.

HE WANTS TO EASE TENSIONS

WITH RUSSIA.

THE ELECTION COMES AS

UKRAINE REMAINS ON EDGE.

IN EASTERN PARTS OF THE

"COUNTRY, PRO-RUSSIAN"

GROUPS ARE CONTINUING

THEIR FIGHT AGAINST THE

"GOVERNMENT IN KIEV, AND"

THAT IS CAUSING SOME

UKRAINIANS TO FIGHT BACK.

AND OUR REVOLUTION IS

NOT ENDING.

NOW WE MUST FIGHT THE

RUSSIAN CIVILIZATION.

"AFTER THAT, WE WILL BEGIN"

THE NEXT REVOLUTION TO

CLEAR OUR GOVERNMENT AND

SO MOST OF THESE PEOPLE DO

NOT BELIEVE THE

"POLITICALS, BECAUSE"

POLITICALS MAKE THIS WAR.

THIS WEEKEND'S

PROFESSIONAL VOTE WAS A

SPECIAL ELECTION CALLED BY

"THE UKRAINIAN PARLIAMENT,"

COMING AFTER VIKTOR

YANUKOVYCH FLED UKRAINE.

MEANWHILE RUSSIA SAYS IT

IS READY TO ENGAGE IN

DIALOGUE WITH THE NEWLY

ELECTED UKRAINIAN

PRESIDENT.

THEY SAY THAT RUSSIA IS

READY TO TALK.

BUT THAT THE TWO COUNTRIES

WON'T BE NEEDING ANY KIND

OF MEDIATION FROM THE

UNITED STATES OR THE

EUROPEAN UNION.

LAVROV SAYS RUSSIA HAS

PAID ATTENTION TO WHAT

THEY HAVE SAID ABOUT

MAINTAINING TIES WITH

RUSSIA.

BELGIUM HAS LAUNCHED A

NATIONWIDE HUNT FOR A LONE

GUNMAN WHO WALKED INTO THE

JEWISH MUSEUM IN BRUSSELS

ON SATURDAY AND KILLED

FOUR PEOPLE WITH A RIFLE.

DALE HURD IS IN BRUSSELS

WITH THAT STORY.

Reporter: THE

SURVEILLANCE SHOWS THE

SUSPECT TAKE HIS RIFLE

FROM A BAG AND FATALLY

SHOOT FOUR PEOPLE BEFORE

PACKING IT UP AGAIN.

DEAD IS AN ISRAELI COUPLE

AND A TOURIST AND A

BELGIUM MAN.

BELGIUM AND EUROPEAN

OFFICIALS ACTED HORRIFIED

"BY THE CRIME, BUT THEY"

SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN

SURPRISED.

ANTI-SEMITISM HAS BEEN

"GROWING IN EUROPE, THANKS"

TO THE INFLUX OF MUSLIM

IMMIGRANTS.

OUTSIDE BELGIUM'S SUPREME

"COURT SUNDAY, HUNDREDS"

GATHERED TO CONDEMN THE

ATTACK.

I'M HERE BECAUSE I COME

BECAUSE I THINK THEY NEED

TO PROMOTE PEACE IN OUR

COUNTRY.

" IT IS EXCRUCIATING, AND"

"I WOULD LIKE TO THINK, AND"

"I BELIEVE, THAT IT IS NOT"

ONLY THE RABBI AND THE

JEWISH PEOPLE FEEL THIS

"WITH, BUT ALL PEOPLE"

SHOULD FEEL THIS WAY.

Reporter: TWO JEWISH

MEN WERE ATTACKED AS THEY

LEFT A SYNAGOGUE LATE ON

SATURDAY.

THESE ATTACKS WILL MAKE

MORE JEWS DECIDE THEY HAVE

HAD ENOUGH.

ISRAEL WAS BUILT ON ONE

"PROMISE, AND THIS PROMISE"

IS NEVER AGAIN.

AND TODAY THERE ARE PEOPLE

IN THE STREETS WHO WANT TO

DO IT ONE MORE TIME.

IF EUROPE WILL NOT BE ABLE

TO DEAL WITH THIS AND TO

"WIN THIS FIGHT, I THINK IT"

WILL BE THE BEGINNING OF

THE END.

" Reporter: DALE HURD,"

"CBN NEWS, BRUSSELS."

PRESIDENT OBAMA USED

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND TO

TAKE A SURPRISE TRIP.

VISITING AMERICAN TROOPS

IN AFGHANISTAN.

THIS TRIP WAS ANNOUNCED

ONLY AFTER HE LANDED IN

KABUL ON SUNDAY.

HE SPENT TIME SPEAKING

"WITH TROOPS, AND VISITING"

SOLDIERS AT A BASE

HOSPITAL.

THANKING THEM FOR THEIR

"SACRIFICE, AND VOWING TO"

STAY STRONG AS A NATION BY

TAKING CARE OF THE

VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILY.

President Obama: IF

YOU WANT SOMEBODY WHO

KNOWS HOW TO GET THE JOB

"DONE, HIRE A VET."

HIRE A VET!

HIRE A VET!

AS THE AFGHANISTAN WAR

"WINDS DOWN, IT IS NOT"

CLEAR WHAT ROLE THE U.S.

WILL TAKE IN THE CONFLICT

NATION.

THE PRESIDENT IS EXPECTED

TO GIVE DETAILS DURING A

COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS ON

WEDNESDAY.

"BACK HERE AT HOME, THE"

POLICE IN CALIFORNIA ARE

LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE

22-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO WENT

ON A KILLING RAMPAGE THIS

WEEKEND.

"BUT THE CASE ALSO SHOWS,"

"ONCE AGAIN, FOR POLICE TO"

DECIDE IF SOMEONE WITH

MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS IS

A DANGER TO THE COMMUNITY.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: ELLIOT

RODGERS LEFT BEHIND A

GREAT DEAL OF INFORMATION

ABOUT WHY HE WENT ON HIS

"SHOOTING RAMPAGE, BUT IT"

IS STILL HARD FOR THIS

COMMUNITY TO UNDERSTAND.

I DON'T HAVE WORDS TO

"SAY HOW SHOCKING IT IS,"

JUST TO KNOW WHAT

HAPPENED.

Reporter: AUTHORITIES

ARE REVIEWING HIS

"WRITINGS, IN WHICH HE"

"DETAILED HIS KILLING PLAN,"

AS WELL AS THIS CHILLING

YouTube VIDEO.

TOMORROW IS THE DAY OF

"RETRIBUTION, THE DAY IN"

WHICH I WILL HAVE MY

REVENGE AGAINST HUMANITY.

Reporter: ROGERS

DESCRIBED YEARS OF

LONELINESS AND REJECTION

BY WOMEN AND OTHER

FRIENDS.

SOME SAY THEY TRIED TO

HELP HIM.

" HE WAS REALLY, REALLY"

UPSET ABOUT WHY IS THE

WORLD SO UNFAIR TO HIM.

I CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH.

I TRIED REACHING OUT TO

HIM EVERY CHANCE I GOT.

"HE WAS SO CLOSED OFF,"

THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD

DO.

Reporter: AUTHORITIES

SAY ROGERS' RAMPAGE

"STARTED IN HIS APARTMENT,"

WHERE HE STABBED THREE

MEN.

AND THEN HE DROVE ON THE

"SANTA BARBARA CAMPUS, AND"

FIRED SHOTS AT WOMEN AT

THIS SORORITY HOUSE.

SARAH SCHWARTZ SAYS SHE

WAS 10 FEET FROM HIS CAR

WHEN HE FIRED AT HER

MULTIPLE TIMES.

HE LOOKED DIRECTLY AT

ME.

AND EVEN THOUGH I HADN'T

"EVEN RAN YET, HE DIDN'T"

HIT ME.

" Reporter: IN THE END,"

ROGERS SHOT AND KILLED

HIMSELF INSIDE THE BLACK

B.M.W. HE USED TO CARRY

OUT THE VIOLENCE.

LAST MONTH HIS PARENTS

CONTACTED POLICE AFTER

BEING ALERTED ABOUT VIDEOS

OF SUICIDE AND KILLINGS.

BUT AFTER TALKING WITH

"ROGERS, THE POLICE"

DETERMINED THERE WAS NO

THREAT.

IT HIGHLIGHTS THE

CHALLENGES THAT POLICE

FACE IN ASSESSING MENTAL

"HEALTH, ESPECIALLY FOR"

THOSE WITH NO HISTORY OF

VIOLENT BREAKDOWNS.

THE COMMUNITY IS PLANNING

AN INTERFAITH VIGIL FOR

TUESDAY.

"HOTTER CELLS, CBN NEWS."

ABOUT ONE-THIRD OF ALL

DETROIT PREGNANCIES ENDS

IN ABORTION.

THE DETROIT CITY NEWS SAYS

"IN 2012, IT HIT 31%."

HEALTH OFFICIALS ARE

"BLAMING RISING POVERTY,"

AND LIMITED ACCESS TO

CONTRACEPTION.

"AN OFFICIAL SAYS,"

"QUOTE,""WE'RE SEEING A"

PICTURE THAT LOOKS MORE

LIKE SOME THIRD-WORLD

COUNTRY THAN SOME PLACE

"INSIDE THE UNITED STATES."""

A NEW MEASURE MAY REDUCE

ACCESS TO ABORTION IN

LOUISIANA.

THE STATE LEGISLATURE

RECENTLY PASSED A BILL

THAT WOULD FORCE AT LEAST

THREE OUT OF THE STATE'S

FIVE ABORTION CLINICS TO

CLOSE.

THE MEASURE REQUIRES

DOCTORS AT SUCH CLINICS

HAVING ADMITTING

PRIVILEGES AT A NEARBY

HOSPITAL.

SIMILAR BILLS HAVE ALREADY

CLOSED CLINICS IN TEXAS

AND MISSISSIPPI.

"IN ALABAMA, A LEGAL FIGHT"

OVER A LAW IS UNDER WAY.

GOVERNOR BOBBY JINDAL IS

EXPECTED TO SIGN

LOUISIANA'S MEASURE INTO

LAW.

CHURCHES IN HOUSTON ARE

PUSHING BACK AGAINST A GAY

RIGHTS ORDINANCE THAT THE

MAYOR HOPES WILL PASS COME

WEDNESDAY.

"PARKER IS AN OPEN LESBIAN,"

AND SHE SAYS IT WILL

"PROTECT MANY MINORITIES,"

BUT MANY SAY IT WILL

SEVERELY LIMIT RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: IT WAS JUST

LAST FALL THAT THE

CHURCHES IN SAN ANTONIO

WERE CAUGHT OFF GUARD BY

AN LGBT.

YOU HAVE NO WAY OF

KNOWING WHAT IS

DISCRIMINATION AND WHAT IS

NOT.

YOU'RE A SMALL BUSINESS

OWNER OPERATING IN THE

CITY LIMITS WITHIN SAN

"ANTONIO, OR YOU'RE A CITY"

OWNER WHO WANTS TO DO

"BUSINESS WITH THE CITY,"

YOU NEED TO TREAD

CAREFULLY.

George: AND NOW GAY

ACTIVISTS WANT LAWS IN

"HOUSTON, THE FOURTH"

LARGEST CITY IN THE

COUNTRY.

BUT IT IS PERSONAL.

IT IS NOT ACADEMIC.

IT IS MY LIFE THAT IS

BEING IS DISCUSSED.

George: THE OPENLY

"GAY MAYOR, PARKER, CALLS"

THE MEASURE CIVIL RIGHTS

"PROTECTION, AND SAYS"

HOUSTON IS THE ONLY MAJOR

CITY WITHOUT IT.

BUT MANY HOUSTON CHURCHES

SAYS THE LAW WOULD LEAVE

"THEM UNPROTECTED, AND"

THEY'RE WORRIED ABOUT

"CHRISTIAN BUSINESSES,"

ESPECIALLY WEDDING

"VENDORS, WHO COULD FACE"

FINES.

AND THEY SAY PROTECTION

FOR TRANSGENDER PEOPLE

WOULD LEAVE WOMEN AND

CHILDREN OPEN TO PREDATORS

IN PUBLIC BATHROOMS.

WHEN YOU PASS A LAW

THAT SAYS IT IS LEGAL FOR

A BIOLOGICAL MALE TO GO

"INTO A WOMEN'S RESTROOM,"

AND YOU PROHIBIT THE

BUSINESS OWNER FROM

STOPPING THAT BIOLOGICAL

MALE BECAUSE HE CLAIMS TO

"BE TRANSGENDER, YOU'RE"

OPENING THE DOOR WIDE

OPEN.

George: HUNDREDS OF

CHURCH LEADERS GATHERED TO

OPPOSE THE REFERENDUM.

"GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS."

" COMING UP, THE FIGHT TO"

KEEP AMERICA'S NATIONAL

ANTHEM FROM BEING

REPLACED.

THIS MEMORIAL DAY THE

NATION HONORS THE MEN AND

WOMEN WHO HAVE SACRIFICED

THEIR LIVES FOR OUR

COUNTRY.

ALL ACROSS AMERICA EVENTS

ARE TAKING PLACE TO

REMEMBER THOSE WHO SERVE.

AT ARLINGTON NATIONAL

"CEMETERY IN WASHINGTON,"

"D.C., THE THIRD U.S."

INFANTRY IS CONTINUING THE

40-YEAR TRADITION KNOWN AT

"""FLAGS END,"" PLACES THE"

FLAGS AT THE GRAVE STONES

OF THE FALLEN HEROS.

"WELL, IN RECENT YEARS,"

THERE HAS BEEN A PUSH TO

REPLACE OUR NATIONAL

ANTHEM.

SOME SAY THE

"""STAR-SPANGLED BANNER"" IS"

TOO AGGRESSIVE AND TWO

FIXATED ON WAR.

BUT AS PAUL STRAND

"REPORTS, THERE IS NOW A"

"COUNTER-MOVEMENT, TRYING"

TO ENSURE THE ANTHEM STAYS

AS IS.

Reporter: SOME PEOPLE

WANT TO GET RID OF THE

"""STAR-SPANGLED BANNER""."

SHELLEY MANUAL AND THE

"ORGANIZATION ""SING IN"

"AMERICA"" ARE TRYING TO"

SAVE IT.

THE RASMUSSEN REPORT

SAYS THAT 15% OF AMERICANS

WANT TO REPLACE THE

NATIONAL ANTHEM.

Reporter: SHELLEY

SAYS SOME PEOPLE INSIDE

AND OUTSIDE THE U.S. FIND

THE ANTHEM TOO

MILITARISTIC AND

AGGRESSIVE.

IT IS COMING FROM A

"G-20 AREA ORIGINALLY, AND"

WE'VE BEEN ASKED TO GET

RID OF OUR NATIONAL

ANTHEM.

Reporter: THEY ARE

"ASKING 100,000 AMERICANS"

"TO SIGN A PETITION, URGING"

THE PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS

TO RETAIN THE ANTHEM

FOREVER.

THE ADDRESS CAN BE FOUND

AT cbnnews.com.

SHELLEY IS ALSO ASKING

AMERICANS TO ORGANIZE A

MASSIVE 50-STATE

SING-ALONG ON THE

ANNIVERSARY OF THE ANTHEM.

THEY HOPE THAT AMERICANS

GATHERING AT ALL 50 STATE

HOUSES WOULD

SIMULTANEOUSLY SING THE

"""STAR-SPANGLED BANNER""."

IT IS NOT DIFFICULT TO

RENT A STATE HOUSE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO

TO OUR WEBSITE.

Reporter: AND SHE

POINTS OUT IT SPECIFICALLY

PRAISES GOD.

MAY THE HEAVEN'S

RESCUED LANDS PRAISE THE

POWER THAT HAVE MADE AND

PRESERVED THIS NATION.

Reporter: PAUL

"STRAND, CBN NEWS,"

WASHINGTON.

" UP NEXT, BECOMING"

APPRAISED PATRIOT.

A LOOK AT THE BEST WAYS WE

CAN PRAY FOR OUR NATION

AND ITS LEADERS.

" WELL, YOU MAY BE A"

"PATRIOT, BUT ARE YOU A"

PRAYING PATRIOT?

MARK MARTIN RECENTLY SPOKE

WITH THE AUTHOR OF

"""PRAYERS FOR THE CHRISTIAN"

"PATRIOTS."""

HE HOPES THE BOOK WILL

HELP GUIDE AMERICANS AS

THEY PRAY FOR AMERICA AND

ITS LEADERS.

TAKE A LOOK.

TALK ABOUT HOW GOD

COMMANDS US TO PRAY FOR

THOSE IN AUTHORITY OVER

US?

ABSOLUTELY.

IT IS VERY CLEAR IN

SCRIPTURE GOD HAS

COMMANDED US TO PRAY IN

THOSE OVER AUTHORITY OF

"US, EVEN IF WE DON'T AGREE"

WITH THEM.

"TIMOTHY 1 AND 2 SAYS, ""I"

URGE YOU TO PRAY FOR ALL

"PEOPLE, ASK GOD TO HELP"

"THEM, AND INTERCEDE ON"

"THEIR BEHALF, AND GIVE"

THANKS FOR THEM.

PRAY THIS WAY FOR KINGS

AND ALL WHO ARE IN

AUTHORITY SO WE CAN LIVE

"PEACEFULLY, QUIET LIVES,"

MARKED BY GODLINESS AND

"DIGNITY."""

"IN THE BOOK OF ROMANS,"

PAUL TELLS US WE ARE TO

SUBMIT OURSELVES TO ALL

AUTHORITY BECAUSE THERE IS

NO AUTHORITY ON EARTH THAT

HASN'T BEEN PUT THERE BY

GOD.

EVEN WHEN WE DISAGREE WITH

"OUR LEADERS, EVEN WHEN WE"

DISAGREE WITH OUR

"PRESIDENT, WE HAVE TO"

RECOGNIZE THAT GOD HAS PUT

"THAT PERSON IN AUTHORITY,"

AND HIS PURPOSE IS GREATER

"THAN OUR PURPOSE, AND"

WE'VE BEEN COMMANDED TO

PRAY FOR THEM.

" JOSH, GIVE US A SUMMARY"

OF YOUR BOOK.

EXPLAIN HOW IT OFFERS A

WORSHIP-BASED APPROACH TO

BECOMING A PRAYING PATRIOT

WITH SCRIPTURE-FOCUSED

PRAYER.

WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT?

THE PSALMS IN SCRIPTURE

ARE ISRAEL'S NATIONAL

PRAYERS TO GOD.

THEY ARE THE PRAYERS OF

ISRAEL TO THEIR GOD AND TO

THEIR MAKER.

AND THE IDEA OF AMERICAN

PSALMS IS THE SAME WAY.

WE NEED TO APPROACH ALL OF

OUR PRAYING WITH

THANKSGIVING AND WORSHIP.

WE SO OFTEN GET MIRED DOWN

BY THE THINGS THAT WE WANT

"OR THE THINGS DON'T HAVE,"

WE FORGET TO RECOGNIZE ALL

OF THE AMAZING THINGS WE

ACTUALLY DO HAVE.

AMERICA IS AN INCREDIBLE

"COUNTRY, UNLIKE ANY NATION"

THAT HAS EVER EXISTED WHEN

"IT COMES TO FREEDOM, AND"

THE ABILITY TO WORSHIP AND

THE ABILITY TO PRAY TO

GOD.

AND SO ALL OF OUR PRAYER

FOR THE NATION AND FOR OUR

LEADERS NEEDS TO START

WITH WORSHIP.

WORSHIP OF GOD WHO PUT

THOSE PEOPLE IN AUTHORITY.

WORSHIP FOR THE THINGS HE

HAS ALREADY DONE TO BLESS

OUR COUNTRY.

HOW IMPORTANT IS A BOOK

LIKE THIS DURING THIS

"CRITICAL TIME IN HISTORY,"

WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE U.S.

"POLITICAL ATMOSPHERE, AND"

WE'RE SEEING AN EROSION OF

"OUR BASIC FREEDOMS, LIKE"

THE FREEDOM OF RELIGION.

Reporter: THE MAIN

POINT OF THE BOOK AND THE

ONE THING I WANT PEOPLE TO

"KNOW, IT IS NOT JUST A"

LIST OF PRAYERS YOU'RE

SUPPOSED TO PRAY.

IT IS A METHOD TO TEACH

YOU HOW TO PRAY FOR THE

"COUNTRY, HOW TO PRAY FOR"

EVERY ASPECT OF AMERICAN

LIFE.

WHETHER IT IS THE C.I.A.

TO OUR FARMERS TO OUR

"FISHERMEN, TO C.E.O.S OF"

OUR CORPORATIONS.

THE REASON WE WANT TO DO

THAT IS BECAUSE WE WANT TO

COVER THE NATION WITH

PRAYER.

AND AT A TIME WHEN NOBODY

AGREES ON ANYTHING AND OUR

"POLITICIANS DON'T AGREE,"

AND WE JUST CAN'T SEEM TO

"COME TO CONSENSUS, WE NEED"

TO REALIZE THAT GOD IS THE

ULTIMATE SOVEREIGNTY IN

THIS NATION.

AND THAT IF WE GO TO HIM

"AND WE TRUST IN HIS WILL,"

AND WE TRUST IN HIM TO DO

"THAT, THEN THAT WILL MELT"

AWAY OUR BIASES.

WE HAVE TO GET RID OF OUR

"BIASES, GET RID OF OUR"

PARTISANSHIP.

"WHEN WE PRAY FOR PEOPLE,"

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE

PRAYING FOR THEM TO BE

MORE LIKE US OR TO DO WHAT

WE WANT THEM TO DO.

WE NEED TO BE PRAYING FOR

THEIR BLESSING AND TO SEE

GOD'S WISDOM.

" AND AT THE SAME TIME,"

PRAY THEY'RE OBEDIENT TO

THE WORD OF GOD.

EXACTLY.

WHICH IS WAY IT IS SO

IMPORTANT THAT EACH ONE OF

THE PRAYERS IN THIS BOOK

IS BASED ON SCRIPTURES.

BECAUSE WE CAN SO EASILY

GET CAUGHT UP IN OUR OWN

POLITICS.

THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW

YOU'RE TRULY PRAYING FOR

GOD'S WILL IS TO LOOK INTO

THE WORD AND MAKE SURE

WHAT YOU'RE PRAYING FOR IS

CONSISTENT WITH GOD'S

WORD.

DO YOU BELIEVE GOD

CALLED YOU TO WRITE THIS

BOOK?

I DO.

I DO.

I ALWAYS HAD A

DISHEARTENED FEELING THAT

I NEVER SERVED IN THE

MILITARY.

I ALWAYS FELT REALLY BAD

THAT I WAS TAKING PART IN

"THIS FREEDOM, BUT I HAD"

NEVER DONE ANYTHING TO

HELP PROPAGATE IT AND TO

HELP DEFEND IT.

THAT WAS SORT OF ONE OF MY

"GREATEST REGRETS, THAT I"

DIDN'T SERVE IN THE

MILITARY.

AT ONE TIME WHEN I WAS

"PRAYING ABOUT THAT, I FELT"

LIKE THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS

"TELLING ME, I'VE GIVEN YOU"

"DIFFERENT GIFTS, AND THERE"

ARE DIFFERENT WAYS TO

SERVE YOUR NATION.

AND THE WHOLE THING JUST

SORT OF CAME UPON ME --

THE WHOLE CONCEPT SORT OF

"CAME UPON ME, AND I TRULY"

DO FEEL LIKE I WAS CALLED

TO WRITE THIS BOOK.

" THANKS, JOSH."

"THE BOOK IS ""AMERICAN"

"PSALMS, PRAYERS FOR THE"

"CHRISTIAN PATRIOT,"" JOSHUA"

J. MASTERS IS THE AUTHOR.

AND YOU CAN FIND IT WHERE

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

"THANKS, JOSH."

WE WISH YOU THE BEST.

" THANK YOU SO MUCH,"

MARK.

AFTER FIVE YEARS OF

"SERVICE, ONE FOUR-LEGGED"

MARINE IS FINALLY HOME.

"THOR, THE BOMB-SNIFFING"

"DOG, KEPT HIS COLLEAGUES"

SAFE IN AFGHANISTAN.

I LOVE THAT DOG.

"HE IS MY BEST FRIEND, HE"

IS MY EVERYTHING.

I DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE

WITHOUT HIM.

"WHEN I HAD TO LEAVE HIM, I"

FELT LIKE I ABANDONED

THEM.

THEY SERVED TOGETHER

EVERY DAY OF THEIR 2010

TOUR.

BUT WHEN MILLER CAME HOME

"FROM THE BATTLEFIELD, THOR"

HAD TO STAY.

NOW WITH THE HELP OF THE

"AMERICAN HUMANE SOCIETY,"

THE PAIR HAVE REUNITED.

I'M SO EXCITED.

I DIDN'T THINK THIS WAS

EVER GOING TO HAPPEN.

"OH, MAN."

"OH, MAN."

"THOR, HEY."

IT IS SO GOOD JUST TO

TOUCH HIM AGAIN.

HE LOOKS BEAUTIFUL.

A GORGEOUS DOG.

THOR PLANS TO ENJOY HIS

RETIREMENT AT HIS HOME IN

"TACOMA, WASHINGTON, WITH"

HIS FAVORITE PARTNER AND

HIS TOYS AND HIS NEW

FAMILY.

THAT IS GOING TO DO IT NOW

FOR CBN NEWS TODAY.
