ASHCROFT PRAYER UPDATE #8
Expectation for Confirmation Grows

Overview:
Both Democrats and Republicans say Attorney General-designate John Ashcroft has conducted himself with remarkable dignity and effectiveness during two days of grilling and sometime harsh abuse by Democrats during his Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings. Democrat "slash & burn" tactics seem, thus far, to have failed. The prayers and hard work of God-fearing Americans seem to be paying off. But experts urge us, "Don't stop praying."

-Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) set an acrimonious tone on day #1 by angrily attacking Ashcroft. Other Democrats followed suit, repeatedly asking arcane questions that implied that Ashcroft was a racist, a religious bigot, and an anti-abortion zealot.

-Pressed as to whether he would uphold pro-abortion laws even though he was personally opposed to them, Ashcroft repeatedly affirmed that he would uphold the laws of the land as they were written.

Democrat Senators, especially those who have conservative leanings, need special prayer, and they need to hear from their constituents right away (Capitol Switchboard - 202-224-3121).

Please Join Us in Believing Prayer:
Heavenly Father, THANK YOU for RAISING up John Ashcroft, PREPARING and SUSTAINING him through this brutal, unfair process. ENABLE him now, completely to PREVAIL! NEUTRALIZE any yet-hidden scheme to derail Ashcroft's confirmation. Grant COURAGE to Democrats who must break rank to support Ashcroft. May the American People demonstrate an OUTPOURING of support for Ashcroft that neither Democrat nor Republican Senators can ignore (Dt 31:6; 1 Chr 19:13; Ps 18:26-29; 25:2, 26; 27:1-3; 31:13-16; 55:22; 75:6-7; Pr 29:2; Mic 7:3-4; Mt 10:41-42).
