"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found"  (Psalm 32:6)

GOP SWEEP! NOW WHAT?
Christians Must Press in to God all the More!

"Shoot!" Elisha said "The Lord's arrow of victory!" You will completely destroy the Arameans" Then he said, "Take the arrows," and the king took them. Elisha told him, "Strike the ground." He struck it three times and stopped. [Elisha] was angry with him and said, "You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times" (2 Kg 13:17-19).
The GOP made history Tuesday by retaking the Senate and gaining five House seats in a mid-term election. A growing army of praying Christians around the world knows God governed the outcome of this election (Ps 75:6-7). Pro-life gains in both houses signify God's mercy. He is giving American Christians more time to meet the Biblical conditions for national repentance and reformation (2 Chr 7:14). Will the President and newly empowered Congressional Republicans use their authority now to advance the issues important to God?
In his first post-election press conference the President refused to be pinned down about his abortion agenda, the re-nomination of conservative judges and other conservative issues. Rather he said his main priorities were the safety of Americans and jobs.
Soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-MS) has promised the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act will be brought to the Senate, passed and then signed by the President. But the Associated Press reports Lott made a pre-election deal with now Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) to keep Democrat committee chairmen at their posts until the end of the lame-duck session.
Will Sen. Lott provide the leadership needed? Christians must be prepared to press pro-life issues if there is to be any hope for God to remove the curses He promised to send every nation that condones the shedding of innocent blood (2 Kg 24:2-4; Pr 16:16ff)!
If Senator-elect Jim Talent (R-MO) is sworn in right away, as called for by Missouri law, Republicans would have immediate control of the Senate. The Senate should not have to wait until January to work on the 50+ House-passed bills Sen. Daschle has kept bottled up.
Not-yet-finalized elections in Louisiana and South Dakota could add two more pro-lifers to the Senate.
Wise strategy and persistence by Christian leaders in Washington with citizen activism by grassroots American Christians are essential if any lasting change is to occur. Now is not the time for Christians to relax. Rather it is time to press in to God all the more. Christians must persist in extraordinary prayer (and recruit others to do likewise) if the unholy spiritual powers determined to destroy our nation are to be defeated.

Please Join Us in Faithful, Persistent Prayer:
Lord, You are on Your Throne! We THANK YOU for giving us hope.
Now, Lord, turn our hope into Godly fruit. ANOINT & MOTIVATE our new leaders to use their authority to ADVANCE YOUR AGENDA!
May the contested races be decided in favor of candidates who fear You.
TURN our culture of death into a culture of LIFE. CREATE a SEA CHANGE that will begin to turn our nation back to You. In Jesus' Name, Amen (Ps 106:all; 118:all; 136:all; Gal 6:9; Eph 6:10-19; 1 Tim 2:1ff).
