My wife received an email from the International House Of Prayer concerning oral arguments that will be held before the SCOTUS. We’ve should have been praying about this months ago. However, we cannot afford to wait until April 28 when these arguments will take place.
If you are a detractor, disregard this blog. If you are against prayer, disregard this blog. If you are an opponent, disregard this blog. If you have given up on this nation, disregard this blog. If you have said, “What’s the use?, and “What good will it do?,” disregard this blog.
But if you are serious about making a stand today, not next week, fall on your face before God and pray like you’ve never prayed before.
When it is said and done, will you stand before Jesus to answer to Him for not seeking His face and turning from your wicked ways?
LGBT has had it’s way for a long time.
But the Lord could be down a gazilion points with 0.01 left on the clock and still run the devil out the gym.
Andrew Murray said in a book on Prayer that “Prayer is power with God.”
Like never before, we need to exercise this power to see God do a mighty work in the earth.
The Lord doesn’t need but one person that will decide to give themselves to prayer and fasting to seek God.
Will you be that one vessel?
2 Chronicles 16:9 says, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
Because you are reading this blog, the Lord has found you. Will you humble yourself and pray, and seek His face, and turn from your wicked ways (prayerlessness)?
Listen to what Samuel said in 1 Samuel 12:23-25.
“Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way. Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. But if you still do wickedly, you shall be swept away, both you and your king.”
If we fail to pray, we sin a great sin. If we insist on doing wickedly, we will be swept away………the church and political leadership (all three branches of this government).
Together, we can get the job done.
Will you join us?
Here is a good prayer to daily pray for this urgent situation.
PRAYER FOR SUPREME COURT
Father, in the name of Jesus, we pray for the Supreme Court of his nation. The docket that is before this court is about the constitutionality of the sin of homosexuality. We, as Your people, beseech You to move into the courtroom and direct their minds not to establish this vile sin to prevail in this nation.
Let the proponents of homosexuality be disappointed, and set in derision. Let them be confounded and be without the wisdom that is from underneath.
Let them recognize the righteous judgments of the Lord and repent of this wickedness.
This nation is in the balance.
But You have seen this from the beginning, and this did not catch You off guard.
Therefore, the outcome is well known to You.
We have turned from You and Your Word, we have sinned by not being diligent on our watch. We have sinned by not holding ourselves accountable to Your Word. Forgive us as You have said in Your holy Word. But we have returned to You and stand on Your righteous Word as the righteousness of God in Christ.
We have removed the leaven of sin from our lives and we stand as Your children, holy, sanctified, and consecrated.
Quote 2 Chronicles 7:14
Now look upon this land and the hearts of men.
Let not the unrighteous prevail in this hour.
Let not the sin of homosexuality prevail in this land.
Let not the proponents who devise wickedness prevail.
Let not the pressure of the hour push us to live in fear and terror.
As your Word says, Lord.
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 14:24
“Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you;
And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
Blessed are all those who wait for Him.” Isaiah 30:18
“But let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.” Amos 5:24
Let Your name and Your Word prevail, and be glorified and honored!
In Jesus’ name! Amen!!!!!

David Brody, CBN News Chief Political Correspondent, wrote:
The influential Christian political operative David Lane sent an email newsletter to more than 100,000 evangelical pastors encouraging them to hold prayer services on April 28 when the Supreme Court hears the crucial same-sex marriage case . . .The Supreme Court will decide whether the Constitution allows homosexual couples the right to marry no matter where they reside or whether states have the right to say marriage is only between a man and a woman.
David Lane also is calling on these pastors to preach on the topic of biblical marriage on the Sunday before the big Supreme Court case.
In another blog, Brody wrote:
GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz is sending a letter to tens of thousands of pastors asking them to stand with God and pray during the two-hour time frame on April 28:
“On Tuesday, April 28, the United States Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in favor of ‘same-sex marriage.’ How will the American church respond?
How can the church rise to the occasion in this situation? … I urge you to consider the following—
1. Preach about biblical marriage on Sunday, April 26.
2. Lead prayer services on Tuesday, April 28.
Will we be on the right side of history, the side occupied by the Author of history? Will we discard an institution, ordained by God, which has brought so much stability and happiness to the human family? … Rightly or wrongly, the Supreme Court will take a stand on marriage this summer. Let’s take ours now.
God bless America,
Senator Ted Cruz”
See David Lane’s email to 100,000 pastors:
It is time for You to act, O Lord,
For they have regarded Your law as void.
Psalm 119:126Pastor,It is time for You to act. We are asking the 100K American Renewal = Project pastors for 2 actions:
1) Preach on Biblical Marriage on Sunday April 26, 2015.
The Apostle Paul calls marriage a “profound mystery.” A man and woman becoming one flesh through marriage is more than a civil contract, it represents “Christ and the Church” (Ephesians 5:22–6:9; Colossians 3:18–4:1).
2) Lead Prayer Services on Tuesday, April 28th, 11:30 AM–1:30 PM in their sanctuaries.
This two-hour window will focus on prayer. We intend to cry for mercy for what we, believers, have allowed to happen to our nation, that was established “For the Glory of God and the advancements of the Christian faith.” (The Mayflower Compact).
The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments on same-sex marriage on Tuesday, April 28th. Justice Ginsberg and Justice Kagan even now have performed homosexual marriage ceremonies. Their integrity should insist that they recuse themselves for lack of impartiality; but they are the law. Such secularists lack virtue.
America has become drugged by the cup of Secularism — a false and wicked religion — articulated in the Humanist Manifesto, a creed that denied supernatural relevation, and so the revelation of God in Jesus Christ. The ‘religion’—as it was called in the Humanist Manifesto (1933)—was imposed by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1963, an 8-1 decision, in Abington School District v. Schempp. Lone dissenting Justice Potter Stewart prophesied, “…[the decision to remove the Bible from public schools] led not to true neutrality with respect to religion, but to the establishment of a religion of secularism.”
That proud and tragic decision has given birth to a complete moral breakdown in America, those doing this to our country must be held accountable. The wise Solomon says, “Where there is no revelation the people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction” (Proverbs 29:10). America’s Founders laid the foundation on biblical virtue, His Word. Udo W. Middleman, president of the Francis A. Schaeffer Foundation says, “He has told us in his Word how we should live and order our lives, set our priorities, and what sense to make of being human.” A Christian nation once, America is now ruled by an oligarchy, a majority of nine, representing, “Vice stalking in virtue’s garb.”
God defines sin, not the U.S. Supreme Court. Having removed the fixed point in order to judge in 1963, the esteemed Justices, in hubris, decided to challenge God’s rule, God’s throne, and God’s rightful Honor. America is on the verge of learning something that can be learned in no other way—rebellion against God brings consequences. There is no safety in distance from God.
What is the antidote, the counteracting agent, to the foisting of homosexual marriage on a once Christian nation? “In the day of my trouble I will call upon you, for You will answer me.” (Psalm 86:7)
“Our experience confirms us in the belief that Jehovah the living God really does aid those who call upon him, and therefore we pray and mean to pray, not because we are so fascinated by prayer that for its own sake we would continue in it if it proved to be mere folly and superstition, as vain philosophers assert; but because we really, indeed, and of a truth, find it to be a practical and effectual means of obtaining help from God in the hour of need. There can be no reason for praying if there be no expectation of the Lord’s answering. ” Charles H. Spurgeon
Why are not the churches of America filled with prayer services, led by senior pastors, asking God for mercy of what we have allowed to a once Christian nation? Who will, by faith, help America’s pastors track down the weapons of warfare? Prayer and tears are the Christians weapons of war, very little cannonading and bombardment appears to be occurring in America’s sanctuaries today.
– REQUEST –
We are asking the 100K American Renewal Project pastors to lead prayer services on Tuesday, April 28th, 11:30AM–1:30PM, in your sanctuaries. This two-hour window is not sermonizing, but prayer, led by God’s shepherds; Jehovah is not interested in numbers, if it’s you and two others, then God will be honored. We intend to cry for mercy for what we, believers, have allowed to happen to our nation established by our Founders on a spiritual mission, “For the Glory of God and the advancements of the Christian faith.” (The Mayflower Compact)
We need Gideons to stand, and lead prayer services, Tuesday, April 28th, 11:30AM–1:30PM. For those of the flock who cannot attend the prayer service led by the shepherd, please ask that they stop where they are and pray; we need a miracle.
