'Dad, please forgive us' - Glenn's prayer for the Christian martyrs

Dear Lord,

It is us. The ones who have forgotten about you. Got busy, become too busy, your children that forget to check in except on your birthday and holidays. Or worse yet, it is us: the children that only call when we are in trouble or need money.

Dad, please forgive us. Now that I am a dad and a grandfather, I have seen that I did that until I was around thirty to my parents here and have seen the pattern repeat so to a very small degree I know how you feel.

I am sorry.

You knew we would be calling this morning. We are in trouble.

Yesterday a man man targeted your children by name.

Instead of us coming together some are using this to keep us apart again. Some see the killing here but not the killing on the streets of Chicago.

Almost 400 of your kids died this year in Chicago and six times the amount that were killed yesterday were killed last month.

No one in the press seem to notice or care that it was Christians that were martyred yesterday. But that isn't new. There were 2 million Christians in Syria 18 months ago and now less than 400,000. Children have been crucified in your name and we remain asleep.

Forgive us.

I have read what you told Jeremiah. You told him that he should tell his people, your children, that they needed to stop listening to the liars. And in the end that it was too late.

Lord, I ask you to hear the prayers of those who may be calling on you for the first time since your birthday. Maybe the first time ever.

Remember Lord that YOU chose Israel and established that nation because you loved them. But we are the only nation to ever choose you. We love you and built this nation from that foundation.

Our foundation is good. We just need your help with those of us who refuse to wake up. You have nudged us. Even ripped off the blankets and turned on the lights.

Remember please Dad, that we love you and that we will return home. We are foolish children but there are millions here, as we saw yesterday, that will stand and die for your sake.

Call on me Lord. Here I am.

I promise, I will call you back later just to catch up. But I am late for work.

I love you.

Me

Dear Lord,It is us. The ones who have forgotten about you. Got busy, become too busy, your children that forget to...

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
