Watchwoman: Please pray for the members of the families of these 31 heroes who died in a foreign land defending the Western Way of Life and the Western Christian Religion our Western Form of Government is based upon. Pray extra hard because these heroes, some of whom may not be interred in the Name of Jesus or in the Name of the God of the Bible because the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has banned the Word ‘God’ from Military Funerals. Please call the director of this VA Cemetery, Arleen Ocasio at 281-447-8686 (extension 206) and e-mail her at Arleen.firstname.lastname@example.org and tell the VA what you think of this outlandish anti-God policy. Make her explain this issue and why she hates Jesus Christ and our God of the Bible. Why does she discriminate against Christians and Jews? Is she an atheist? What is her worldview? Then you just might want to pray in the name of Jesus over the phone for her heart to be convicted of her sins of anti-Christian discrimination! Amen? Amen! Tell her of the horrible grief she may add to the already grieving families faced with the inconsolable losses of their sons, husbands, fathers, boyfriends, and classmates of these 31 Navy Seals because of her unjust cause to eliminate Jesus Christ and the God of the Bible from military funerals! Let this be done in Jesus Name for the cause of Jesus Christ to rule in power and might and glory until every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord! Amen! ▬ Donna Calvin
