The Daily Brief:

"Praying for All in Authority"

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

"The LORD is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him."
(Exodus 15:2)
Please note our new, "streamlined edition" of the Brief, to be published the next two weeks. This will allow our staff time to attend the National Prayer Assembly in Washington, D.C. (Oct. 29 and 30) and time to prepare for our upcoming Annual Meeting of our Board of Directors. Our next full edition of the Brief will be published on Monday, November 10. Thank you.



". . . the glory of the LORD filled the temple. . ." (2 Chronicles 5:14)

The Daily Brief

1. FLOOD OF DEMOCRATS UNLEASHES AGAINST OBAMA - WND

'He has checked out as being president' The criticisms are stinging rebukes, the sort of partisan jabs and vitriol typically heard before a crucial election. The following quotes sound like what one would expect from Republicans, especially with control of the Senate hanging in the balance on Nov. 4. Except, these broadsides launched against President Barack Obama don't come from Republicans. They all come from Democrats. (Read more)

- Father God, we, too, have been concerned about the performance of this president. We ask that You now begin to intervene to either change his heart (that he might rule in truth, and for the good of the people), or take him out in whatever way You deem necessary (not for his harm, but for his salvation). We thank You that voices on both sides of the aisle on Capitol Hill and in the media are now voicing their own concerns for this man. Help us, Lord, we pray in Jesus' name, amen.

- "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows." (Galatians 6:7)


2. FOX NEWS POLL: Race for Congress tightens, confidence in Obama low - Fox News

A Fox News poll finds enthusiasm in the midterm elections is in the Republicans' favor - but the spread has significantly narrowed; meanwhile, 62 percent of voters lack confidence in President Obama's leadership. (Read more)

- Lord God, we thank You that, when we pray, You listen, and You answer. As we continue to lift up the election, now less than one week away, we remain on our faces in repentance for our personal and national sin, and we ask You, O Lord, to cause our voters to select men and women who will govern us according to Your will. We ask this in Jesus' name, amen and amen.

- "And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive." (Matthew 21:22)


3. 'Calibration issue' in Maryland voting machines switches GOP picks to Democrat - Washington Times

A calibration issue in multiple Maryland voting machines is reportedly switching voters' picks from Republican to Democrat.

"When I first selected my candidate on the electronic machine, it would not put the 'x' on the candidate I chose - a Republican - but it would put the 'x' on the Democrat candidate above it," said Donna Hamilton, who voted at the Frederick County Center, Watchdog.org reported.(Read more)

- Father God, we have now read reports of trouble with these machines in at least two states, Maryland and Illinois. Only You, dear Lord, know how many other states may be affected by this issue. We ask that no vote be taken in any state until only a "true" vote is registered. We ask this in Jesus' name, amen.

- "I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?" (Jeremiah 32:27)


4. DHS increases security at federal buildings over terror concerns - Fox News

The Department of Homeland Security announced Tuesday it has increased security at federal buildings across the county, citing terror threats and recent attacks in Canada and elsewhere.

The announcement was made by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who said Federal Protective Service officers are providing the increased security.

Officials said the move was a "precautionary" step and not made in response to any specific threat. But they cited last week's violence in Canada and Islamic State threats. Additional security will be put in place in Washington, other major U.S. cities and unnamed locations across the country. (Read more)

- Lord God, we thank You for this news, and we ask that You, dear God, would even amplify these measures to keep our people safe, by deploying Your heavenly army to intervene where danger may be lurking. We praise You, Lord, that we can ask this prayer in Jesus' name, amen and amen.

- "Bless the Lord, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word!" (Psalm 103:20)


5. Unmanned Antares rocket explodes after liftoff - Fox News

An unmanned cargo rocket bound for the International Space Station exploded Tuesday over a launchpad in Virginia. No injuries were reported following the first catastrophic launch in NASA's commercial spaceflight effort.

Orbital Sciences' Antares rocket blew up over the launch complex, just six seconds after the liftoff. The company said everyone at the site had been accounted for, and the damage appeared to be limited to the facilities.

Flames could be seen shooting into the sky as the sun set. There was no hint of any trouble until the rocket exploded. This was the second launch attempt for the mission. Monday evening's try was thwarted by a stray sailboat in the rocket's danger zone. The restrictions are in case of just such an accident that occurred Tuesday. (Read more)

- Father, we offer You praise that no one was hurt, or worse, in this incident. Lord, we refrain from reading this as a prophetic sign for the nation, choosing instead to ask that Your wisdom be granted to the engineers at the Orbital Sciences company, so that explosions like this can be prevented in the future.

- "But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him." (James 1:5)


6. USA Today's Susan Page: Obama administration most 'dangerous' to media in history - Washington Post

At some point, a compendium of condemnations against the Obama administration's record of media transparency (actually, opacity) must be assembled. Notable quotations in this vein come from former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, who said, "It is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering"; New York Times reporter James Risen, who said, "I think Obama hates the press"; and CBS News's Bob Schieffer, who said, "This administration exercises more control than George W. Bush's did, and his before that." (Read more)

- Dear Heavenly Father, We pray that You would allow more transparency from this White House administration. The press, in the past, has been most favorable to this administration. Yet, they refuse to be transparent. What are they hiding Lord? Shine Your light on this administration and expose the hidden things. In His Name, Amen

- "Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men's hearts; and then each man's praise will come to him from God." (I Corinthians 4:5)


7. White House 'furious' over Cuomo, Christie Ebola mandate - NY Post

White House officials are pushing Govs. Cuomo and Chris Christie to dial down their mandatory quarantine rules and let the feds decide how to keep the deadly Ebola virus from spreading in the United States, sources told The Post on Sunday. (Read more)

- Dear Father, The spirit of fear is attempting to paralyze our government. Lord, we ask for a science based strategy to guard our citizens from the Ebola virus. Lord, these wonderful doctors and nurses that have put their lives on the line to help those who most need it are not being treated as the heroes that they are. Lord, we bind the spirit of fear of Ebola that has been released over the USA.We declare to Ebola bow down. Lord, we release Your spirit of peace to guard the hearts and minds of your people.

- "And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Phil. 4:7)


8. Army major general, troops quarantined after Ebola aid trip - CNN

Army Major General Darryl A. Williams, commander of U.S. Army Africa, and approximately 10 other personnel are now in "controlled monitoring" in Italy after returning there from West Africa over the weekend, according to multiple U.S. military officials. (Read more)

- Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You that this Army Major General Williams is using caution with his troops. Lord, we pray that these troops will remain healthy. Cover these soldiers with the blood of the Lamb. Help the government set a science based strategy as soon as possible. In Your Name we pray, Amen

- "A wise man will hear and increase in learning, And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel . . ." (Proverbs 1:5)


9. Nurse in Ebola Quarantine to Sue for Freedom; Feds Push Back on State Rules - ABC News

The lawyer for a nurse in a 21-day mandatory quarantine in a New Jersey hospital after she returned from treating Ebola patients in Africa said Sunday he is planning to file a federal suit to get her released. (Read more)

- Lord, We thank You that Kaci Hickox has been released from her quarantine. We thank You for these brave doctors and nurses who put their lives on the line and then are treated so inhumanely by the state of New Jersey. Lord, we ask again for a science based strategy for our nation in protecting our citizens. Lord, we declare to the Ebola virus to bend down in Jesus Christ name. Amen

- " . . . so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth. . . " (Phil. 2:10)


10. 'Point of no return' on gay marriage passed - USA Today

Former solicitor general Theodore Olson, the Republican lawyer who argued Bush v. Gore and the challenge to California's Proposition 8, says the Supreme Court through action and inaction this month passed "the point of no return" on same-sex marriage. (Read more)

- Dear Heavenly Father, We stand in the gap and repent for the acceptance of gay marriage in our nation. Your word says that this is an abomination. Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ, we strike down every word that Ted Olson has declared over America. We repent for his words and ask that You would cover with the blood of the Lamb these testimonies against America in the Courtroom of heaven. And we declare that the USA will awaken from its slumber and declare these laws by unrighteous judges to be null and void. Father in Your mercy, give us righteous judges and remove from office these judges that make laws from the bench. In Your Name, Amen.

- Then I charged your judges at that time, saying, 'Hear the cases between your fellow countrymen, and judge righteously between a man and his fellow countryman, or the alien who is with him. (Deuteronomy 1:16)


The Middle East in Focus

This week, for all the headlines cited below, please join us in proclaiming THIS DECREE:

"He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways." (Psalm 91:11)


1. INSIGHT FOR INTERCESSORS - (CHPP)

To read the latest edition of "K's" news and prayer requests out of Israel, go here.


2. Egypt gives residents on Gaza border 48 hours to leave -Times of Israel

EL-ARISH, Egypt (AP) - Egyptian authorities on Tuesday ordered residents living along the country's eastern border with the Gaza Strip to evacuate so they can demolish their homes and set up a buffer zone to stop weapons and militant trafficking between Egypt and the Palestinian territory, officials said.

The measure comes four days after Islamist fighters attacked an army post, killing at least 31 soldiers in the restive area in the northeastern corner of the Sinai Peninsula. After the attack, Egypt declared a state of emergency and dawn-to-dusk curfew there. Authorities also indefinitely closed the Gaza crossing, the only non-Israeli passage for the crowded strip with the world.

The buffer zone, which will include water-filled trenches to thwart tunnel diggers, will be 500 meters (yards) wide and extended along the 13 kilometer (9 mile) border.


3. New EU foreign policy chief's first destination: Israel -Times of Israel

The European Union's incoming foreign policy chief's first trip in her new capacity will be to Israel, The Times of Israel has learned.

On November 1, Federica Mogherini will succeed Catherine Ashton as the union's high representative for foreign affairs and security policy. Less than a week later, she is scheduled to arrive in Israel for her first official visit, sources in Jerusalem confirmed Tuesday. Mogherini - currently Italy's foreign minister - will arrive in the region on November 7 and stay for two days. She is expected to also visit senior Palestinian Authority officials in Ramallah.

"It's very important that Ms. Mogherini comes to Israel on November 7. It's her first official visit," said Fulvio Martusciello, a member of the European Parliament from Italy and the new president of its delegation for relations with Israel. Having known her for a while, he believes she understands Israel's many predicaments, he added, but refused to elaborate.

4. EU seeking Israeli clarification on new settlement homes -Times of Israel

The EU said Monday it was seeking Israeli clarification of reports it planned to build another 1,000 homes in annexed East Jerusalem, voicing new concern about the peace process.

If the reports are confirmed, "it will call once again into serious question Israel's commitment to a negotiated solution with the Palestinians," a spokeswoman for EU foreign affairs head Catherine Ashton said.

The European Union could only "condemn such an ill-judged and ill-timed decision" if the plans went ahead, spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said.

5. Large rise in Palestinian support for armed struggle against Israel -Times of Israel

Support for Hamas and for armed struggle against Israel is gaining popularity in the Palestinian territories, a new survey showed Tuesday, despite languishing rehabilitation efforts in the war-battered Gaza Strip.

The survey, carried out by the Jerusalem Media and Communications Center, shows that as far as local public opinion is concerned, the latest war in Gaza was a victory for Hamas.

Some 57 percent of those polled claimed that Hamas was victorious - a strong majority, albeit far short of the 70% who thought Hamas had won after 2012's Operation Pillar of Defense in Gaza. Only 8% thought that Israel had won.

6. Waqf condemns mayor's visit to Temple Mount -Times of Israel

The Islamic Waqf body, which administers the Temple Mount, on Tuesday condemned Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat's visit to the site earlier in the day, charging that it had not been coordinated.

The visit was "merely for publicity and its political nature is characteristic of [Barkat]," Azzam al-Khatib, head of the Waqf, told AFP.

In a statement, the Al-Aqsa Foundation condemned what it described as the "storming" of the compound by Barkat.

7. Bennett: Obama Administration 'Throwing Israel Under the Bus' -Israel National News

"The United States administration is planning to throw Israel under the bus," Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett said on Tuesday night, responding to harsh words against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu which were attributed to senior officials in the Obama administration.

"Israel is stronger than all those who curse it," said Bennett, after Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic quoted officials in Washington as having described Netanyahu as "chicken ----", among other things.

"The prime minister is not a private individual, but the leader of the Jewish State and the Jewish world as a whole. Serious curses such as these against the Israeli Prime Minister are harmful to millions of citizens of Israel and Jews worldwide," added Bennett.

"Neither the leader of Syria, who has slaughtered 150,000 of his citizens, nor the leader of Saudi Arabia, who stones women and gays, have been called 'chicken ----'. If what is written is true, then the current administration intends to throw Israel under the wheels of the bus," he said.

"Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East, and it has struggled for its existence over the past 66 years. Israel is the vanguard of the free world against the Islamic terrorism of ISIS, Hezbollah, Hamas and Iran," noted Bennett.

The following are some very simple guidelines we can all use to enhance the Spirit of Unity on this call, and to move in the peace of God.

1. First, please know that we have appointed a wonderful group of saints who will host this call, each one responsible for two hours at a time. They will be on hand to assist you in maintaining a smooth flow of Bible reading.

5. By now, so many of you have "reported in," to say that YES, you DO wish to participate in this marathon move of GLORY, we will need to ask each reader to please take only one turn on the call. We do want to encourage as many readers as possible to be heard.

6. Finally, and prayerfully, just RELAX and enjoy this unique WORSHIP EXPERIENCE together. With your own phones on mute, [*6 ], please read along with us for as long as you would like.


TO GOD BE THE GLORY! GREAT THINGS HE HATH DONE!!


The Daily Jot

Why I didn't send Sermons to Houston


I totally get the point of what former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was trying to make--that if lesbian mayor of Houston Annise Parker wanted sermons, let's all send her sermons and Bibles. From October 20 when Huckabee asked "every pastor in America" to send Parker their sermons and everyone watching his FOX news show to send her Bibles, Parker's office has received (according to a spokesperson) between 500 and 1,000 Bibles. Parker responded, saying, "Actually, I think it was a very productive way for folks who disagreed with our legal strategy to express that disagreement, and I'm happy to share the Bibles with those who may want them." In my opinion, an opportunity was lost.

Parker's attorneys have subpoenaed the sermons and some 16 other types of correspondence of five Houston area pastors. She is trying to see if these pastors instructed any of their congregation on how to fill out a petition against the mayor's pro-homosexual agenda. This is totally a violation of the First Amendment and an example of the bullying which has become the hallmark of the gay rights movement (you know, the ones who have bullied people into participating in their anti-bullying campaigns). Peter Kirsanow, a conservative commissioner on the liberal leaning US Civil Rights Commission (a federal government agency), stated Parker's inquest was "an abuse of government power."

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said (Matthew 7:6), "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you." Parker has predictably mocked those who sent in their sermons and Bibles, and she has strengthened her resolve (turned again to rend these pastors). Logically, it didn't make sense to me to send Parker exactly what she was demanding in violation of the Constitution of fellow pastors. To me, it makes much more sense to make an example of her that would serve as a reminder to anyone, including the ACLU, who would attempt such a violation of the Supreme law of the land--our Constitution.

Parker should be sued for violating these pastor's Constitutional rights. Furthermore, she should be charged with high crimes and misdemeanors against the Constitution. A team of civil rights attorneys should search every jot and title of the law and hold her accountable in court for every violation thereof. Every pastor in Houston should surround the mayor's office and shut it down until she relents. And if she relents, she should still be tried for high crimes and misdemeanors, sued for civil rights violations, and run out of office by the good people of Houston. Sometimes we need to be more like the Lion than the Lamb.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

". . . the glory of the LORD filled the temple. . ." (2 Chronicles 5:14)

The Daily Brief

1. Citizen Jihadists: ISIS uses 'lone wolves' to mount cheap, effective attacks on US soil - Fox News

Al Qaeda spent less than $1 million on its signature 9/11 attack, but Islamic State has found an even more cost-effective way to strike on American soil - inspiring psychotic sympathizers to commit "lone wolf" attacks that blur the line between random crime and terrorism, say experts.

Grisly photos and video of severed heads and mutilated bodies tweeted out and posted on the Internet, combined with explicit calls to kill, have allowed Islamic State to turn American citizens into weapons, say experts. The new technique requires no infiltration by sleeper cells and no planning, coordination or logistics. Yet, it is proving extremely effective at spreading fear, they say.

"If you can kill a disbelieving American or European, especially the spiteful and filthy French, or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever, then rely upon Allah and kill him in any manner or way however it may be," urged a speaker on a video Islamic State released last month.

A law enforcement bulletin obtained last month by FoxNews.com warned that Islamic State fighters have increased calls for "lone wolves" to attack U.S. soldiers in America. (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, awaken Your intercessors to all You would have us pray as to these 'lone wolves' who are rising up and striking our nations with terrorist activities. Have mercy, Father, and give us acute discernment of when and what to pray over, so that warnings can be given out and hopefully received by those needing to hear them. We pray this in the Name of Jesus and under His Shed Blood, Amen and Amen.

- "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began." (2 Timothy 1:7-9 NKJV)


2. Canadian Parliament killer has Libya link - WND

Most of the news accounts of the Muslim gunman who stormed the Canadian Parliament failed to mention his father fought alongside the Libyan rebels who overthrew Moammar Gadhafi's regime in 2011.

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, is being described as a convert to Islam who appears to have acted alone when he killed Corporal Nathan Cirillo, 24, at a war memorial and attacked the nearby Canadian Parliament building Wednesday before being shot dead by a heroic sergeant-at-arms.

NBC News reported Zehaf-Bibeau was born Michael Joseph Hall but changed his name when he converted to Islam at least 10 years ago. Many news accounts report he is the son of Bulgasem Zehaf, a Quebec businessman. However, lost in most of the coverage is that Canada's Globe and Mail newspaper reported Zehaf-Bibeau's father "appears to have fought in 2011 in Libya." (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, more and more young people are rising up to participate in the Islamic cause, whether near to their home as 'lone wolves' or traveling to the Middle East fighting areas.  We ask for Your mercy, Lord.  We ask that You direct us into clear discernment about how You would have us pray over these actions and how our leadership should respond. We ask this in the Name of Jesus and under His Shed Blood, Amen and Amen.

- "Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls." (Proverbs 25:28 NKJV)                                      


3. States' Ebola quarantines spark frustration, disagreement between feds, governors - Fox News

Three U.S. states imposing mandatory quarantines of health-care workers returning from Ebola-ravaged West Africa sparked a furious debate this weekend that included the country's top infectious-disease doctor saying he would not have recommended such a measure and a quarantined nurse saying she feels like a "criminal."

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told "Fox News Sunday" that the 21-day quarantines now being imposed in Illinois, New Jersey and New York can have the unintended consequence of discouraging healthcare workers from volunteering in the West African countries, where an estimated 4,500 people have so far this year died from Ebola. "We do not want to put them in a position where it makes it very, very uncomfortable for them to even volunteer," he said.

New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie told Fox News that he has "great respect" for Fauci but defended his decision to impose the quarantine, saying he has an obligation to protect residents amid Centers for Disease Control guidelines that remain a "moving target." (Read more)

- Father, we need You to abide in the midst of all of these discussions and to have Your wisdom and direction clearly discerned, so that this dreadful disease may be brought under control.  Direct our leaders at both the state and federal levels to reach an agreed-upon policy for receiving these health care workers back to our land. We ask this prayer in the Name of Jesus and under His Shed Blood, Amen and Amen.

- "Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know." (Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV)


4. Ebola-stricken doc described as driven do-gooder- AP

Dr. Craig Spencer, the physician now being treated for Ebola in New York City, is the kind of globe-trotting do-gooder who could walk into a small village in Africa and, even though he didn't know the language, win people over through hugs alone, according to people who worked with him. Even before leaving for Guinea this summer to fight Ebola with Doctors Without Borders, the 33-year-old had amassed an ordinary man's lifetime worth of world travel, much of which was in the service of the poor.

In the past three years alone, Spencer, an attending physician at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, had been to Rwanda to work on an emergency care teaching curriculum, volunteered at a health clinic in Burundi, helped investigate an infectious parasitic disease in the Democratic Republic of Congo and traveled to 32 villages in Indonesia to do a public health survey.

Friends of the stricken doctor described him Friday as fun-loving but driven to stay involved in the global health fight.  "Everything else in his life was two, three and four on the priority list," said Dr. Liz Edelstein, a San Diego emergency medicine physician who met Spencer while teaching a course on wilderness medicine. (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, we bring before Your throne this doctor who has come down with Ebola from his work in west Africa.  We ask that he be fully restored to health so that he may continue to work tirelessly for the health of the poor.  We ask that You redeem him, Lord, if he does not already know You and if he will come. We ask that You will protect all who were around him before he knew he was ill and are around him now who are administering his care, keeping them safe from this dreadful disease. We pray this in Jesus' Name and under His Shed Blood, Amen and Amen.

- "For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone."  (Psalm 91:11-12 NKJV)


5. Cross called constitutional since it 'memorializes' soldiers - WND

A flashpoint for "church-state" debate since 1989, the Mount Soledad Memorial cross near San Diego has been ordered to be left alone and then to be torn down. It's been ruled constitutional and unconstitutional. But it's still there, and a new brief submitted to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals argues it should remain untouched, based on a new U.S. Supreme Court precedent. The case originated because someone was "offended" by the Christian symbol at the veterans memorial. It's the third cross at the site since the first was erected in 1913. (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, may this brief submitted to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals be accepted and the Mount Soledad Memorial cross be left in place to honor the sacrifices made by so many military personnel.  We ask that You raise up Your right hand and stop all the protests against this memorial.  We pray this in the Name of Jesus, Amen and Amen.

- "This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him. If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself."   (2 Timothy 2:11-13 NKJV)


6. 'Satan' tells driver to crash into Ten Commandments - WND

An investigation is under way in Oklahoma City into a driver who crashed into a well-known Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the state Capitol, breaking it into pieces. According to a report from KFOR Television, the man was taken in for "mental evaluation" after he told officers that Satan told him to urinate on the stone, then crash into it. The vandalism hit at one of the Ten Commandments monuments that has been challenged over the years by those objecting to the display of the tenets of Judeo-Christian faith. It, however, has remained on the grounds as part of the history of the state and nation. (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, here again a monument displaying Your ways for us has been assaulted.  Father, direct us  how to respond.  We ask You to abide in the midst of this event so that this monument may be restored and the enemy rebuked.  We pray this in the Name of Jesus and under His Shed Blood, Amen and Amen.

7. Churches Now Forced to Pay for Abortions in California - Townhall.com

Thanks to a newly enforced regulation in California, abortion is now a "basic health care service" in the state. The Federalist's Casey Mattox reported the unfortunate news:

California's Department of Managed Health Care has ordered all insurance plans in the state to immediately begin covering elective abortion. Not Plan B. Not contraceptives. Elective surgical dismemberment abortion.(Read more)

- Heavenly Father, we stand in repentance for what is happening in the state of California, where all churches must pay for insurance coverage that provides abortion coverage regardless of how it violates their beliefs. It appears that the war to stand for life is encountering every encircling entrapment. Have mercy, Father, and direct how Your remnant is to respond.  We ask this in the Name of Jesus, Amen and Amen.

- "Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God   For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head." (Psalm 83:1-2 NKJV)


8. US to recognize same-sex marriage in 6 more states - Townhall.com

The federal government is recognizing gay marriage in six more states and extending federal benefits to those couples, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Saturday.

Gay marriage recently became legal in Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, North Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming. The government's announcement follows the U.S. Supreme Court's decision earlier this month to decline to hear appeals from five states that sought to keep their marriage bans in place. It brings the total number of states with federal recognition of gay marriage to 32, plus the District of Columbia.

Couples married in these states will qualify for a range of federal benefits, including Social Security and veterans' benefits. (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, we fall before You in repentance for ourselves and our nation that these actions which contradict Your ways, have spread so widely.  We ask that You abide in the midst of all these court decisions which cast aside the will of the majority of citizens and promote the radical gay agenda.  Help us, Father, and direct our response, in the Name of Jesus, Amen and Amen.

- "Arise, O God, judge the earth; for You shall inherit all nations."  (Psalm 82:8 NKJV)


9. Democrats Push for New Heavy Regulations on Internet Postings, Drudge, and Blogs - Breitbart

As the media prepared to vacate newsrooms for the weekend, Democrats snuck in a last minute proposal that the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) be allowed to heavily regulate political content on internet sites such as Youtube, blogs, and the Drudge Report.

Obama FEC Vice Chairperson Ann M. Ravel announced late on Friday that the FEC was preparing new regulations to give itself control over videos, Internet-based political campaigns, and other content on the web. She insisted that, "A reexamination of the commission's approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long overdue." (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, it is amazing how the Democrats are pushing to censure certain viewpoints that are contrary to their own but are not willing to apply the same regulations to all postings across the spectrum. Protect us, Father, as they want to suppress anything that opposes their agendas. Direct us how to respond so that truth and justice may arise, Father, in Jesus' Name we pray, Amen and Amen.

- "As snow in summer and rain in harvest, so honor is not fitting for a fool." (Proverbs 26:1 NKJV)


The Middle East in Focus

This week, for all the headlines cited below, please join us in proclaiming THIS DECREE:

"He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways." (Psalm 91:11)


1. Security forces on high alert in Jerusalem ahead of Friday prayers -Times of Israel

Security forces were spreading out throughout East Jerusalem as well as the Old City Friday morning ahead of what was expected to be a volatile day, following a week of Arab rioting and violence in the capital.

Police said they would limit entry to the Temple Mount compound to males 40 and up and women of any age, after receiving information that Arab youths intended to foment unrest in the area after the conclusion of Friday prayers. Police officials warned they would show "zero tolerance" for unruly behavior. (Read more)


2. One capital, two deeply divided cities - Times of Israel

The sign hanging outside the Silwan home of Abdelrahman al-Shaludi, the terrorist who carried out Wednesday's attack in Jerusalem, after his first release from an Israeli prison in 2013 says a lot about the reality in the eastern part of the city.

"The Islamic Movement Bayt al-Maqdis lauds the heroic prisoner Abd al-Rahman al-Shaludi, on his release from the Occupation prison." And if there was any doubt about who the Islamic Movement Bayt al-Maqdis really is, then the pictures of the "martyrs" on the right side of the sign should solve the mystery: Ahmed Yassin, founder of Hamas, and Mohi a-Din a-Sharif, the successor of "The Engineer" Yahya Ayash who was killed in a mysterious explosion in 1998.

Hamas is alive and well. Not only in Gaza, not only in the West Bank, but right here, in the villages and neighborhoods in East Jerusalem, right under the noses of the Jerusalem police. (Read more)

- Heavenly Father, we pray for Jerusalem. We pray for the city that will be the seat of Your eternal kingdom to be united. We pray for the peace in Jerusalem and that the Arabs and Jews will no longer seek to do harm to the other. We lift up the terrorists in Hamas, we pray for their salvation and for them to repent of their sins. Father, have mercy on them. In the name of Yeshuah, amen.

3. US tells staff to avoid E. Jerusalem rail stations -Times of Israel

US government personnel have been restricted from using Jerusalem Light Rail stations in parts of eastern Jerusalem for a month.

The US State Department announced the ban Thursday in a security message emailed to Americans in Israel the day after a terrorist attack on a light rail station left an infant dead and eight people injured.

The restriction is for the area where Wednesday's attack occurred and further into eastern Jerusalem. The restriction will be reviewed after 30 days. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for the protection of all Americans who are now in Jerusalem. We ask that You watch over them and keep them safe. We lift up all the innocent people there and pray for their protection as well. In the name of Yeshuah, amen.

4. Report: Palestinians accept US request to delay Security Council bid for statehood - The Jerusalem Post

The London-based pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat reported on Thursday that the Palestinian Authority has agreed to delay by two months its plan to seek a Security Council resolution calling for an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines within three years.

The paper quoted Palestinian sources in Ramallah as saying that the PA leadership will give US Secretary of State John Kerry a two-month window to present his own plan for peace. The sources said that the PA leadership was nevertheless determined to proceed with the Security Council bid.

The sources also told the newspaper that the PA leadership is prepared to return to the negotiations with Israel but not according to "old mechanisms." (Read more)

- Lord God, the stories reported in the media about the Palestinian Authority agreeing to a delay or threatening the US if it vetoes a delay are changing daily. We pray that the PA will agree to delay this and really mean it. We pray that they won't have any hidden plans or threats that will be suddenly revealed. We thank You for Your control over this matter, Father. In the name of Yeshuah, amen.

5. Ya'alon: It's Not About '67 Borders' - Israel National News

Defense Minister: As long as Palestinian children are educated to kill Jews, there will not be peace.

The conflict with the Arabs will not end even if Israel withdraws to the pre-1967 borders, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said on Thursday.

Ya'alon, who is in the United States, made the comments during a visit to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where he met with wounded American soldiers.

"As far as the Palestinians are concerned, the conflict will not end with the 1967 borders," he said, in comments related to Wednesday's terrorist attack in Jerusalem in which a three-month-old baby was murdered. (Read more)

- Abba, this is the true heart of the matter. It doesn't matter how large the land of Israel is, while the Palestinians are taught to kill and hate Jews the threat will always be there. Father, we pray for the leaders of other nations, the UN, Palestine, and Israel to get the revelation that Defense Minister Ya'alon has. This battle is much greater than just land; it is a spiritual war. We ask that You release Your warrior angels to take down the principalities that are trying to defeat Your plans for Israel. We are thankful that we are on the side that wins. You are the Creator and Author of all things. We thank You and praise You. We pray these things in the name of Yeshuah, amen.

6. Egypt cancels Hamas-Israel talks following Sinai attack -Times of Israel

Dashing Hamas hopes of a détente with the Egyptian regime of Abdel Fattah el-Sissi, Egypt closed its borders to a high-ranking Hamas delegation to talks with Israel on Sunday, accusing Palestinians of involvement in a deadly terror attack in Sinai Friday. The Hamas delegation had been set to resume indirect talks between the Palestinians and Israel over a long-term Gaza ceasefire on Monday, but those talks were canceled.

Sissi said on Saturday that "foreign hands" were behind a suicide car bombing that killed over 30 soldiers at a checkpoint near the northern Sinai town of el-Arish, declaring a three-month state of emergency in the peninsula. But Egypt's deputy interior minister, Samih Bashadi, was more specific on Sunday, accusing "Palestinian operatives" of involvement in the attack. (Read more)

8. Hamas Official Declares Intifada in Jerusalem - Israel National News

Hamas official Mahmoud Zahar, declared the constant cycle of violence in Jerusalem an "intifada" on Saturday night, making rumors of a so-called "silent intifada" official despite declarations from the Israeli security establishment that statements to that effect are exaggerated.

"Escalating the resistance in the city is the solution to Israeli aggression," Zahar told Hamas news agency Al-Risala.

Zahar also slammed the Hamas-Palestinian Authority (PA) "unity government"'s security coordination with Israel.

"The security coordination is a problem in that is suppresses the intifada against Israeli aggression," he stated. "The people in the West Bank [Judea-Samaria -ed.] are fighting on two fronts: the first is the Israeli occupation and the second is the PA's security forces."  (Read more)

- Abba Father, we stand in the gap before You to ask that You will rise up defending Your land and people, showing this man, Hamas official Mahmoud  Zahar, that Jerusalem is Your city and NOT his, and to shut down this 'silent intifada'.  We pray this in the Name of Jesus and under His Shed Blood, Amen and Amen.

- "When the wicked spring up like grass, and when all the workers of iniquity flourish, it is that they may be destroyed forever." (Psalm 92:7 NKJV)             


9. Anti-Israel Restaurant Receives Funding from Kerry's Wife - Israel National News

A food cart that hands out anti-Israel propaganda with each of its sandwiches has received funding from a foundation run by Secretary of State John Kerry's wife, The Washington Free Beacon reports.

Conflict Kitchen, a pop-up restaurant located at the intersection of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, seeks to use food to educate locals and college students about countries that are allegedly in conflict with the United States. It recently began serving "Palestinian" food wrapped in leaflets that include quotes from Palestinian Arabs defending terrorism and opposing the existence of Israel.

The statements on the wrappers were taken from interviews with Palestinian Arabs, noted the Free Beacon. They are published without quotation marks and do not appear to be edited for accuracy. (Read more)

- Abba Father, it appears that a definite 'conflict of interest' is involved here. At a café located at the intersection of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh the food cart is handing out anti-Israel propaganda with each of its sandwiches. This café has received funding from a foundation run by Secretary of State John Kerry's wife, while John Kerry is working to negotiate a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs.  We ask You, Father, to rise up and defend Your Name, Your land and Your people from the viciousness and duplicity of these actions, in Jesus' Name and under His Shed Blood, Amen and Amen.

- "But the Lord is with me as a mighty, awesome One. Therefore my persecutors will stumble, and will not prevail. They will be greatly ashamed, for they will not prosper. Their everlasting confusion will never be forgotten." (Jeremiah 20:11 NKJV)

I Stand Sunday

About I Stand Sunday

"Houston, we have a problem"


"ADF attorneys say the city [of Houston] is illegitimately demanding that . . . pastors, who are not party to [a] lawsuit, turn over their constitutionally protected sermons and other communications simply so the city can see if the pastors have ever opposed or criticized the city. . . .

"The city's subpoena of sermons and other pastoral communications is both needless and unprecedented," said ADF Litigation Counsel Christiana Holcomb. "The city council and its attorneys are engaging in an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions. Political and social commentary is not a crime; it is protected by the First Amendment." . . .

"The message is clear: oppose the decisions of city government, and drown in unwarranted, burdensome discovery requests," the [ADF] brief states. "These requests, if allowed, will have a chilling effect on future citizens who might consider circulating referendum petitions because they are dissatisfied with ordinances passed by the City Council. Not only will the Nonparty Pastors be harmed if these discovery requests are allowed, but the People will suffer as well. The referendum process will become toxic and the People will be deprived of an important check on city government provided them by the Charter." (Source: Alliance Defense Fund)


The Family Research Council invites all of us to stand with the five pastors in Houston, who are drawing a LINE IN THE SAND, defending their First Amendment rights to freedom of speech. FRC will sponsor a free, live webcast in Houston, which may be seen on Sunday night, November 2nd, in your home or church. To learn more about this event, please go here.

Join Christians across America for I Stand Sunday on November 2, 2014. Watch the free, live 90-minute simulcast from Grace Church (14505 Gulf Freeway Houston, TX 77034) Doors open at 5:00pm, and worship begins at 6:00 p.m. Stay tuned here for more updates.

Calling Pastors and Intercessors! Tony Perkins is asking pastors to join us in Houston and for believers everywhere, to pray!

1. Urge your pastor to come if he can and your church to show I Stand Sunday live.
2. Pray - every day now through the event. We must humble ourselves, repent and seek God for America's pastors and churches.
3. Fast - Friday, this week and next, or as God leads you, please fast (Mt 17:21).
4. Come to Houston - Come to support the pastors. If you are an intercessor, join me and the I Stand Sunday prayer team to support the pastors and the event.


Lord, we pray now through I Stand Sunday. Assemble Your prayer team: on-site and across the land! May Your answers to prayer preempt every problem; invoke Your presence; and multiply the spiritual impact across our land. May what You are doing in Houston be used to awaken your Church and America! May the prayers of your people at I Stand Sunday be used to turn our nation!

"May your eyes be open toward this temple day and night, this place of which you said you would put your Name there. May you hear the prayer your servant prays toward this place." (2 Chronicles 6:20)

The Daily Jot

Remember your prophetic place

Monday, October 27, 2014


There are a lot of bad things going on in the world--Ebola, the Islamic State, the lack of jobs, politicians saying that businesses don't create jobs, the unconstitutional IRS confiscating money without due process, government spying, voting machines registering votes for only one party--it all seems overwhelming. The next problem is bigger than the one before, and they seem to be jumping out of the problem creation machine (of which the current White House is the main operator) faster than we can mentally process them. There are those who predict the end of America. Others say judgment has come. Still others are oblivious to anything but their daily schedule. But they all feel the frustration. Remember your place.

If you are a follower of Christ, the Messiah, then you know his promise. The entire Bible is given to us as the word of God, as is Jesus Christ. In Christ is our salvation and in the Bible is instruction on how we are to work out our salvation here on earth. Jesus said in Matthew 10:28, "And fear not them who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." The promise of eternal life, knowing the end game so to speak, should give us all the confidence to speak boldly as we ought to speak and having done all, to stand. Jesus said in Matthew 24:6 that ...see that you are not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet."

Isaiah 54:17 says, "No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, says the LORD." Likewise, Isaiah 33:14-16 says, "The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness has surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? He that walks righteously, and speaks uprightly; he that despises the gain of oppressions, that keeps his hands from the holding of bribes, that stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil; He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the fortresses of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure."

As the LORD says, your heritage--your prophetic place--is in his righteousness and it is you who shall have a place of defense in the fortress of rocks, dwelling on high with bread and water. Do not be overwhelmed by the things of this world. As Paul said in Romans 12:21, "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." Let's not sit around wringing our hands over the unrighteous, but rather seize our place in the righteousness of the LORD. You don't have to be enslaved by oppression--it has no authority over you. So stand in that gap. Be that royal priesthood. Obey God rather than man for the night is far spent and the day is at hand. Cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light and let your light so shine.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
