Anyone who has read the news or has a twitter account knows what this is about. Carroll County, Maryland County Commissioner Robin Bartlett Frazier, prayed in the name of JESUS to publicly defy a Judge who tried unconstitutionally to restrict the worship of THE LIVING LORD JESUS and to prevent Christian prayers. I read her words and I was impressed at how she stood up boldly for THE LORD JESUS. I think the entire County and possibly the entire nation will become embroiled in that controversy and I think it is unavoidable if citizens do not want atheism to be their so-called "official" religion forced on them by immoral and unconstitutional Judges. If you read the entire Bible, you will see that it calls the men [and women] who honored GOD publicly with prayers when they were in leadership positions to influence people, as "men of GOD" and "men after GOD's own heart" to set an example of holiness and reverence of THE TRUE and LIVING GOD. Remember JESUS also said, " I and My FATHER are ONE." John 10:30, KJV.
There are many words of JESUS recorded as to to whom to pray too, and how to pray, and I am including some of those scriptures here. The words written on the banner above are portion of a scripture, that in entirety reads: " we will rejoice in Thy salvation; and in THE NAME of our GOD, we will set up our banners: THE LORD fulfill all thy petitions." Psalms 20:5.
And in the words of JESUS, "and when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are; for they love to pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, 'they have their reward.". but thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet and when thou hast shut the door, pray to THE FATHER [GOD] which is in secret; and Thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions as the heathen do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like them; for your FATHER knoweth what things you have need of, before you ask HIM. After this manner, therefore pray ye:' Our FATHER, which art in heaven, Hallowed by Thy Name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts [ trespasses] s we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen. for if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. " Matthew 6: 5-15, King James Holy Bible.
Another scripture of the words JESUS spoke is from Matthew 26:41 as written; " watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. "
Remember it is not unconstitutional to pray nor to pray in The Name of JESUS, because of the First Amendment to the U S Constitution which gives individual citizens the authority / liberty to worship GOD as they see fit and to pray in any place at any time without government interference. I quote : "U.S. Constitution › First Amendment also written as AMENDMENT I: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."
And I remind you that one of the so-called founding fathers of the United States, wrote these words: "the people of every country are the only guardians of their own rights and are the only instruments which can be used for their destruction. It is an axiom in my mind that our liberty can never be safe but in the hands of the people themselves; that too of a people with a certain degree of instruction. "
If the United States to to become united once again, it must not forbid the worship of THE LIVING GOD, nor must it try to force atheism on the people; and it must end the methodical premeditated slaughter of the tiniest U S citizens and those are in the womb.

I have never assigned my copyrights to any one and I do not have an artist's rep or a literary agent at this time and have never had either [in the past]. I sign my name on art as Gloria, and on some sketches as Gloria Poole. Gloria Poole is my real, born with, legal name since I resumed it legally after my 2nd divorce which was in Arapahoe County Colorado. I removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore by order of District Court Judge at time of final decree of divorce from male DBP in Oct 2007 who lives in Colorado; and I resumed my maiden name including my surname of Poole. I moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009. I am also known on the web as; gloriapoole; Gloria as on art such as this which I signed when I completed it; gloria.poole; gloria-poole; gloria0817; gpoole817; gloria_poole; gloriapoole1749; gloriapoole.RN; gloriapooleRN at yahoo in which the RN means standard abbreviation for Registered Nurse; and as artist-gloria; artist-gloriapoole; gloriapoole-paintings; Poole, Gloria; Ms. Gloria Poole; Gloria Poole creator of words that WORK and Tapestry of LIFE; and as other variations of my real, born with, legal name of Gloria Poole. And I am known as G-L-O-R-I-A on http://gloriapoole.wordpress.com and I had three domains with much art I created with my name written that way, for about 6 yrs until they were stolen from me by cyberthugs. I also had many domains and many with my very name written as gloriapoole in them from years 2004-2011 when criminals broke into my web-hosting accounts and ripped my domains and content right out-of-admin-panel. I have not bought domains since , because there is no security on web-hosting 'packages" because they do not honor business law or contract laws or any laws that I can tell since web-hosting companies do not try to stop cyber-criminals.
For the record: I am white, single again [divorced twice], woman with brown hair, Southern Baptist [ recently renamed The Great Commission Baptists] Christian, and the mother of two grown "children" who are daughters named Jennifer and Leigh. I am also a Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri; and an artist in all artists' mediums; and a blogger, tweeter, poet, author of children's book, and citizen journo; and photographer. I was born in the state of Georgia and am a US citizen by birth so I have all Constitutional protections including the First Amendment right to publish, speak, write, protest and the right not to associate with ungodly in general and atheist perverts in particular, or with violent murderous people or with alcoholics or with d-r-ug-a-d-d-ic-t-s [spelled to try avoid being labeled as wrong sort of person by political censorship on the prowl].
Also, I have other blogs that I put art I create on, and other blogs for the prolife cause and other blogs for attempting to be a good citizen and a good stateswoman [to make a difference for the nation of the U S]. I have written on forums, bulletin boards, emails with the name of words that WORK for the glory of GOD since about 1991. It was a name I coined then and I registered it in the state of Georgia to begin with and again when I lived in Colorado a few years. I moved to Missouri in Oct 2009 and continued this words that WORK official blog and mission from my own private apartment that is not shared with anyone. I am not an employee of words that WORK [or of anyone] but the owner , creator, writer of it. I support it with my own personal money as always because it is a mission for THE LORD. Also, words that WORK is not now and never was a not-for-profit nor an ngo. There is no basis for censorship or control of it by the governments. I write under the auspices as a U S citizen who has first Amendment liberties. Also, words that WORK has no employees nor business partners. Also, for the record, neither of my exhusbands were ever business partners of words that WORK and in fact, both of them tried to destroy it.
