September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Dalai Lama to Lead Opening Prayer in US Senate


Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama will lead the traditional opening prayer Thursday morning in the U.S. Senate.

This is the first time the Dalai Lama has led the prayer, even though he has visited the Capitol many times.

The Dalai Lama has been touring the United States and met with President Barack Obama in the White House last month despite China's objections.

The president repeated his strong support for Tibet's religious, cultural and linguistic traditions. The Dalai Lama said he is not seeking Tibetan independence from China and wants to resume a dialogue with Chinese leaders.

China warned the United States there would be serious diplomatic consequences if the meeting took place, but nothing has happened.

China accuses the Dalai Lama of using religion as a cloak to engage in separatist activities. It also has accused him of encouraging Tibetan separatists to set themselves on fire as a protest. The Dalai Lama has always denied the charge..

Dalai Lama Opens U.S. Senate for First Time with ‘Prayer’ to ‘Buddha and All Other gods’

For the first time ever, the leader of Tibetan Buddhism opened the United States Senate with ‘prayer’ on Thursday, wishing for world peace and ‘good fortune’ for America’s lawmakers.

After being introduced by Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and escorted by Senator Mazi Hirono (D-HI), the Dalai Lama characterized himself as only being “a simple Buddhist monk.”

“So pray to Buddha and all other gods,” he said, before speaking in Tibetan and then repeating his “prayer” in English.

“With our thoughts, we make our world,” the Dalai Lama stated, robed in gold and red. “Our mind is central and precedes our deeds. Speak or act with a pure mind and happiness will follow you like a shadow that never leaves.”

Senators bowed their heads and visitors watched from the balcony.

“May there be joy in the world, with bountiful harvest and spiritual wealth,” the Dalai Lama continued. “May every good fortune come to be. And may all our wishes be fulfilled.”

He then referenced what he called his “favorite prayer,” which he said he offered daily.

“As long as space remains, and as long as sentient beings remain, until then may I too remain, and help dispel the misery of the world,” it read.

The Senate is customarily opened by prayers from Chaplain Barry Black, a Seventh-Day Adventist, but reports state that Black invites speakers of other faiths at times to present the invocation.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid praised the Dalai Lama following his presentation, calling for a brief recess so that Senators could greet the Buddhist leader.

“The Dalai Lama is well-known throughout the world as a spiritual leader of the Tibetan people and for spreading the gospel of peace and compassion and love of our fellow human beings,” he said.

Later in the day, leaders of the House of Representatives, namely Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi met with the Dalai Lama, who recalled their past encounters with the 79-year-old Tibetan figure.

“He said, ‘Nancy, we must rid you of your negative energy,’” Pelosi said, as Boehner chuckled, according to the Washington Post.

The Dalai Lama has made previous visits to the states, receiving the Congressional Gold Medal in 2007 during a ceremony attended by then-President George W. Bush. He also met with Bush in Dallas in 2011, and spoke at the George W. Bush Presidential Center, where he referred to the former president as “my dear friend.”

Barack Obama likewise met with the Dalai Lama late last month although Chinese leaders warned that meetings with the Tibetan leader could “seriously damage” the nation’s relations with China.

I hate to say it, but I've heard this similar "prayer" in these Babel churchianity buildings, especially in recent years.

Talk about the rotten fruit of these false bible perversions - yeah, the agenda of these perversions is to get the Apostate church talking the same language as these other false religions.
