God Cares About


Debt Ceiling, Israel! PRAY!


"O Lord, to us belongs shame of face, to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, because we have sinned against You. To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him. (Daniel 9:8-9)

"The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect." (Ps 33:10)


Things are heating up in Washington right now (literally, also). We must PRAY for two very significant, spiritual and moral issues -- the Debt Ceiling matter and the Administration's efforts to force Israel to capitulate to this so-called Quartet.

Here are two articles which capture these issues:

Lawmakers Face Rising Pressure From the Base Not to Bend on Deficit Fox News

Middle East Quartet Meeting 'Excellent', Says U.S. Official Haaretz

Regarding the DEBT CEILING matter, Deut 28:12b, Ps 37:21, and Prov 22:7 give us a sense of God's perspective on debt, borrowing and eventual bankruptcy. For our government to be truly Biblical and follow God's Ways, we cannot raise the Debt Ceiling, thereby incurring even greater indebtedness and subsequent borrowing. If we do not follow His Ways, we can only expect bankruptcy, and fiscal calamity to follow. Please PRAY that Speaker Boehner (R-OH) and his Republican colleagues will HOLD FIRM and REFUSE to RAISE the Debt Ceiling.

Regarding ISRAEL, President Obama and the other members of the Quartet are reviving their efforts to bully Israel and force her to cede land and Statehood to Muslims in Palestine. The Quartet is meeting here in Washington right now. This, too, is decidedly unbiblical (See Gen 12:3; Joel 3:2; Zech 12:9).

As American Christians we should have "shame of face" for the leading role our President is playing in these efforts. (It's no wonder that God is exposing the President and causing his Presidency to become unraveled.) Please PRAY that God will INTERVENE and the Quartet's plans will be destroyed (See Job 5:12; Ps 33:10; Ps 140:8).

Below are articles about some other issues which are very important. In order to PRAY effectively, it will be helpful if you can at least scan them:

The Bible Has Shaped Our Culture NY Post (King James' 400-year legacy.)

The Media's Efforts to Push Republicans Towards Unelectable Candidates Investors

Obama, Holder Forcing Small Banks to Give Loans to Their Political Favorites Investors (We have been there, done that, before; this was the cause of the financial collapse we are now in the midst of.)

Do not grow weary! Continue to PRAY for God's INTERVENTION!

In Jesus' Name,
