SPONSORED BY “FREEDOMCONNECTOR”

(Feb. 11, 2012) — A group which has come together under the “FreedomConnector” banner as “Laus Deo” is holding an all-day prayer vigil for the nation on Sunday, February 12, 2012.
“Laus Deo,” which means “Praise be to God,” is similar to a Facebook group and has been offering online Bible study and daily prayer for the last several weeks. Its mission is “To provide Freedom Connectors of faith with a place to gather on our knees to lift up our personal prayers and praises so we can stand together with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence to mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”
For the prayer vigil on Sunday, the organizer, Janette Mirasian Peres, is looking for participants to sign up for a 30-minute time slot in which he or she will type in specific prayer requests. No public speaking or radio presence will be required.
Do not fret because of those who are evil
or be envious of those who do wrong;
2 for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away.
3 Trust in the LORD and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Take delight in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.
FreedomConnector is affiliated with a group whose goal is “to achieve 100 Million voters in 2012” who “have pledged to Stand Up for the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America.” The organization’s “Patriot’s Pledge” calls for “voting for and electing Constitutional Patriot candidates” who have committed to “Protect and Preserve the Constitution of the United States of America,” among many other things.
FreedomConnector promotes local, grassroots activity to effect a return to constitutional principles.
One year ago, commentator Glenn Beck endorsed FreedomConnector as “an alternative solution” to “the left’s community organizing efforts.”
