"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found" (Psalm 32:6)
JUSTICE AT HOME & ABROAD
God's Kingdom Will Advance with Aggressive Prayer
The LORD...was displeased that there was no justice... He will repay wrath to his enemies and retribution to his foes... From the west, men will fear the name of the LORD... (Is 59:13-19).
The outcry against our President in Europe and elsewhere is not that of peace-loving people seeking justice for the Iraqi people. It is a shameless display of anti-Americanism, international political posturing, worldly envy, epochal ingratitude and rank moral hypocrisy. It is a manifestation of enmity against America's Christian roots and the Justice those roots have produced, as well as the American people's support for the nation of Israel.
-True, the US has backslidden from its Puritan roots. Like Europe we are sorely in need of Repentance. Yet, though tarnished, American justice, born of Christian truth and Biblical law, still outshines other nations.
-Europeans are unhappy with President Bush's tough assertion of American independence, refusal to subject Americans to many UN initiatives (the Kyoto Protocol, the International Criminal Court, etc.), his strong leadership against terrorism, his staunch determination to bring Saddam Hussein to justice and his refusal to be moved by anti-American protest.
-Former GOP presidential contender, Gary Bauer, has said Americans must not to be fooled by liberal media reports about NAM, Non-Aligned Movement. The group's 115 countries (among them Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, Cuba, and Libya) recently met to condemn war against Iraq, denounce Israel for its "war crimes," and to support North Korea, Zimbabwe, and Yasser Arafat.
-U.S. Democrats are allied in spirit with Europe's war against America's Judeo-Christian roots. Senate Democrats are filibustering to prevent a vote on Miguel Estrada, President Bush's conservative judicial appointee.
-Meanwhile, it has been discovered that certain Republican insiders who have lobbied the White House and Congress for foreign and American Muslim groups have also gained repeated White House access for groups on record as supporting terrorism, including the recently arrested Florida professor who leads the American branch of the Palestinian Jihad.
We must pray for God's Justice and Mercy to prevail at home and abroad.
The Scripture that compels Christians to protect the unborn, Pr 24:11-12, also requires God-fearing nations to protect their neighbors from immoral tyrants, terrorist groups and rogue nations.
God uses imperfect men and nations to accomplish His Sovereign, geo-political purposes. Might He use the U.S. to liberate the Iraqi people, strike fear in the heart of terror-sponsoring dictators everywhere and stem the spread of radical Islam?
Please Join Us in Fervent Prayer:
-Father, Guide our Congress, President, Secretary of State & Military Leaders through the minefields we face at home & abroad. Watch over their steps. May the war be won quickly, with a minimum loss of life among our troops & our enemies.
-Guard our Land. May Your Righteousness & Justice PREVAIL in America & the Middle East. Protect America & tiny Israel from those who hate us. In Jesus' Name, Amen! (Ps 3:1-8; 18:27-50; 28:all; 70:32-36; 72:all; 76:all; Pr 8:13-17; 21:1-3; Is 9:6-7).
