Since 2001, The Presidential Prayer Team has been the source thousands of Americans have turned to for encouragement and inspiration to pray for America’s leaders.
We are a national ministry dedicated to a focused mission of encouraging, inspiring and praying for our president and national and military leaders. We also seek to be a catalyst in the development of a robust prayer lifestyle, by providing tools to encourage prayer – through email, web, mobile phones and other communication tools. Ultimately, we believe that prayer will transform our nation, one heart at a time.
We believe that Almighty God rules over the affairs of men and moves in response to the prayers of His people. So, with unflinching devotion, members of The Presidential Prayer Team are working every day to raise the shield of prayer over our president and national leaders.
“Ornithologically speaking, there is no such thing as a ‘calling bird.'”
So, for the Fourth Day of Christmas, I got to wondering, “What the heck is a ‘calling bird,’ anyway?”
I would like to know what species or common name is given to the reference of “calling birds” in the Christmas carol “The 12 days of Christmas”.
The song was written in 1780 and used the term “Colly Birds” which is, and was then, an arcane reference to blackbirds, perhaps ravens. The song has been rewritten many times since the and has changed the term, but it wasn’t until 1909 that the term “calling birds” was referenced. … Bottom line, it has morphed from when written. Ornithologically speaking, there is no such thing as a “calling bird”.
