Prayer Vigil Must
Focus on Both Court & Senate
Evildoers shall be cut off: but those
that wait upon the LORD shall inherit the earth (Psalms 37:9).
Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Or who will stand
up for me against the workers of iniquity? (Psalms 94:16)
If a vacancy should occur on the U.S. Supreme Court
soon, the nomination of a Christian or conservative to fill that
position could initiate the most vicious political battle our
generation has ever seen -- perhaps the final battle for
- For two years Senate Democrats have stonewalled President
Bush's best judicial nominees. This "coup d'etat" has
undermined the Presidency and the U.S. Constitution.
- Senate Democrats have especially targeted nominees who
live their Christian faith. Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY)
articulated this bias against Alabama Attorney General William
Pryor, Bush nominee to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
He said Pryor's "deeply held personal convictions as
a pro-life Catholic simply would not be left at the courthouse
- The Democrats want advocacy for abortion and homosexual rights
to be the litmus test for all federal judges.
- Each day this week, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN)
will attempt to "invoke cloture" (i.e., require an
up-or-down Senate vote on the filibustered nominations). Today,
the Senate will vote on Priscilla Owen. Wednesday,
July 30, is the vote on Miguel Estrada. Thursday,
July 31, the Senate will vote on William Pryor.
Friday, August 1, they will vote on Carolyn Kuhl.
We are at a critical juncture. God must intervene.
We cannot wait for the 2004 elections. God can and will
intervene if we pray.
God will not tolerate us if we tolerate leaders who make baby
murder and homosexual license their chief political goals and
values. God will not tolerate us if we tolerate leaders who subvert
God's laws and undermine the morals of our own children.
God can cause these people to repent (just as he did Nebuchadnezzer,
Ahab and Manasseh) or he can remove them through circumstances
they cannot control (Ps 10: all; 18:26; 101:4-8; Pr 8:13).
Please Join Us in Extraordinary
- Oh God, STIR UP your people. Awaken
us to REPENTANCE & PRAYER.
- We beg You to DELIVER us from Supreme
Court Justices who foster evil for generations. DELIVER us from
U.S. Senators (Republican & Democrat) who labor to ADVANCE
EVIL & OPPOSE RIGHTEOUSNESS in our laws & the courts.
REPLACE them with God-fearing men & women. In Jesus' Name,
AMEN (Ex 22:2; Pr 8:13; Jer 13:21-26; Mic 7:2-7; 1 Pet 3:2-17).
