A Vermont judge has ordered the arrest of a former lesbian turned Christian who's been in a long custody battle with her ex-partner.

- Father, may the excellency of the power of God surround this Christian mother and her child with the blood of Jesus. We ask for two heavenly warrior angels to stand toe-to-toe against this judge and the ex-partner and back them into a corner that they cannot move out against this mother and child. Bind the evil spirits in those who are causing this assault. In Jesus Name.

- "But the Lord your God, you shall fear; and He shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies." (II Kings 17:39)

- God, reach out to this boy with holy love and give him a heart of flesh and remove the evil spirits from his heart of stone. Go deep into his spirit and bring sincere repentance. Deal with him to forgive himself and run into the arms of Jesus where there is safety and salvation for his soul. In Jesus Name.

3. Shoe prints, tapes link suspects to Texas church arsons - CNN

Shoe prints left behind at the scene of several church fires in east Texas, as well as surveillance tapes and witness accounts, led police to two men now charged in one blaze and suspected in a string of others, according to court documents.

- Father, we ask that all the churches be restored more beautiful than before, and fill the atmosphere within them with the presence of God. Lord, these men whose minds have been blinded that they cannot see the true depths of the evil they have committed, we ask that You bring deliverance to them by the blood of Jesus. Release them from the grips of darkness and destruction, Lord. Bring conviction to their souls and sorrow to their hearts that they repent and turn from their evil ways and find Jesus as Savior of their souls. In Jesus Name.

- "That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10)

4. Fed to Get $200 Billion Boost - Wall Street Journal

The Treasury said it will borrow $200 billion and leave the cash proceeds on deposit with the Federal Reserve, reviving a program that will make it easier for the Fed to raise interest rates when the time comes.

- Father, we call forth righteous men and women who will rise up in God's power to take the reigns from those who juggle the financial market like a yo yo. Break the gross evil off our Treasury, the Federal Reserve and our banks. God, we ask that You rise up in Your holy wrath and take down this destructive power that wants to throw our country into the misery of a depression. Bind under the blood of Jesus the sordid minds of men and women who have devoted their very lives to steal, kill and destroy and love tearing down every semblance of good. We declare God is the Almighty and stands victorious above all. In Jesus Name.

- "Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Your ways, King of saints. Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name? For You only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before You; for Your judgments are made manifest." (Revelation 15:3-4)

5. Iran nuclear offer falls short - Jerusalem Post

Iran has formally set out its terms for giving up most of its cache of enriched uranium in a confidential document seen by the Associated Press on Tuesday, and the conditions fall short of what has been demanded by the United States and other world powers.

- Father, deplete the supply of enriched uranium in Iran, to the point of being insufficient and without power. Lord, bring the treacherous leaders of Iran to their knees. By a miracle of God conform their ways to be pleasing to You. These people live in misery being bound by forces of darkness who torment them day and night. They give themselves to serve wickedness. May they soon be delivered from the evil snares of satan, the arch enemy, and come into the light of Jesus Christ, who is the Light of the world. In Jesus Name.

- "That you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light." (I Peter 2:9)

6. Insurgency Rises in Northern Ireland - Wall Street Journal

The car bomb that exploded in the Northern Ireland city of Newry Monday night highlights the resurgence in activity of Irish Republican splinter groups determined to wreck the province's fragile peace process with an increasingly sophisticated use of explosives.

- Father, surround all these Irish Republican splinter groups with the heavenly host of the Lord's army and hold them back that they cannot move. Lift the spirit of destruction out of their hearts and bring repentance to their souls. We declare a turnaround and return of peace to their land. In Jesus Name.

- "And all the people shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you." (Deuteronomy 13:11)

7. Iran Put Nuke Plant in Mountain Near Base in Case of Attack - Fox News

Iran's nuclear chief said Tuesday his country built its newly revealed uranium enrichment facility inside a mountain and next to a military site to ensure continuity of its nuclear activities in case of an attack.

- Father, though this enemy of Israel attempt to ensure itself against an attack, may it be known to the leaders of Iran that he who goes to war against Israel shall be defeated. This is God's Word. Any man or nation who moves against Israel invites the wrath of God. So Lord, we ask that You oversee every move that Iran is taking and weaken their force. Protect the people of God in Iran. Make them invisible from the eyes of the killer. Set up a wall of angels that will hold back a nuclear war. In the Name of Jesus.

- "But unto the place in Israel which the Lord your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put His Name there." (Deuteronomy 12:5)

The Middle East in Focus

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

And your eyes shall see, and you shall say, "LORD will be magnified from the border of Israel." (Malachi 1:5)

1. US, Russia eye new Mideast peace push - Washington Post

The United States, Russia and their Mideast peace partners are hoping that a strategy session among top diplomats can prod Israel and the Palestinians to restart stalled talks and have begun organizing a gathering in the Russian capital next month.

2. Netanyahu faces double intifada from Palestinians and settlers - Ha'aretz

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is busy day and night, preparing Israel for a fateful confrontation with Iran. But his real problem may occur elsewhere. The territories are heating up, with the Palestinians escalating their protests against the settlements and the separation fence. The settlers, meanwhile, can smell Netanyahu's weakness and are undermining the authority of the state.

3. Syria slips Hizballah missiles for destroying Israeli cities - Debka

The secret transfer of the mobile surface-to-surface Syrian-made Fateh-110 (range 250km) missile to Hizballah sparked the prediction Friday, Feb. 5 from an unnamed US official that cross-border arms smuggling from Syria into Lebanon outside state control was "very dangerous" and paved the way to war similar to Israel-Hizballah conflict of 2006.

4. Iran using Hezbollah as diversion from nukes - Ha'aretz

Does a Christian Phalange leader in Lebanon know something that Israeli newspaper readers do not know? In a statement published in Lebanon, Dr. Samir Ja'ja claims that Hezbollah may involve his country in a war in the near future. He also warned that the Lebanese home front is far less prepared than its Israeli counterpart for war and therefore the civilian population in his country will bear the brunt of any future round of fighting.

5. Israel, US tighten relations as part of Iran sanctions effort - Ynet News

Israel is strengthening its ties with the United States in light of the possibility that sanctions against Iran may be intensified. Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who flew to the US on Tuesday, is slated to meet on Thursdaywith US administration officials in Washington to discuss imposing sanctions on the Islamic Republic with them.

The Daily Jot

Canada, America, and Socialized Medicine

Canada's Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams came to the United States for heart surgery because he wanted the best procedure which wasn't offered in Canada and because he didn't want to be perceived as "jumping in a line or a wait list." For all the leftist arguments that America should adopt a socialist health care program like that of Canada's, one of Canada's top officials has provided the two base arguments of why the United States should never go with socialist medical care -- the procedures are limited and the waiting list may preclude receiving timely treatment. As Williams earnestly said, "This was my heart, my choice, and my health."

Socialized medicine, no matter how you cut it, is socialism - Marxism, if you will. And only a socialist within the framework of a socialist party would want to implement it. Socialism is a form of humanism where government becomes the "god" of the people, who must seek the government for their very livelihood. In the case of socialized medicine, socialists inside the White House and the U.S. Congrress wish to take control of about 10 per cent of the U.S. economy and control the health decisions of every single American. As in Canada, what is considered the most "friendly" of socialist healh care systems, the government controls the types of procedures offered, and who receives them when.

Americans across the nation have protested the socialists in the Democratic Party who are forcing socialized medicine upon U.S. citizens. Movements have begun to recall Senators who voted for this unconstitutional and dangerous concept. The leadership of the socialist health care movement in both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives are facing tough re-election races. Many of them are behind the polls by double-digits. Yet the White House, led by a Marxist by all accounts, pushes this agenda forward at all costs. Obama knows if he is able to socialize health care, it will become the anchor of socialism that will re-make America as he has promised.

Socialism competes with God in that man, in the socialist system, plays god by making citizens bow to the government for their general welfare. Jesus said in Matthew 6:24, No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Strong's Greek Dictionary says that "mammon" is "wealth personified or deified" So, which is your God: God or government? Will you support socialism, even though it is well marketed by socialists, or will you choose to serve God? In America, you have a choice of how you are governed. I choose to do as Joshua said, "as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Health Care Summit

Despite the American people's rejection of Obamacare, despite tea parties, town hall meetings, election reversals, Democrats leaving Congress in frustration, and the threat of electoral cataclysm in November, President Obama and some Congressional Democrats seem determined to push their vision for socialized medicine upon America. The President's new outline, published Monday, will be discussed at his pro forma "bipartisan" Health Care Summit tomorrow (2/25).

Democrats will reportedly use the "nuclear option" to try passing the health care boondoggle, attach their plan to a budget reconciliation bill, which requires only 51 Senate votes for passage (no filibuster). With a Senate majority, Democrats should be able to muster 51 votes. The President says the plan will not cover abortion, but experts say it will. Pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood will also benefit. Pro-lifers are staking their hopes on 64 House Democrats and 176 Republicans who voted for the pro-life Stupak-Pitts Amendment in the House - that they stand together again to prevent passage of any bill that includes abortion.


May abortion, about which Democratic leaders have repeatedly lied to persuade pro-lifers to support their plan, be addressed head-on tomorrow. May Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) and Joe Pitts' (R-Pa.) amendment become a deal killer for Republicans and Democrats. May God stir the American people to further reject Obamacare, and may the final bill be defeated by a huge majority!

- Accept this atonement for your people Israel, whom you have redeemed, O LORD, and do not hold your people guilty of the blood of an innocent man. And the bloodshed will be atoned for. So you will purge from yourselves the guilt of shedding innocent blood, since you have done what is right in the eyes of the LORD. (Dt. 21:8-9)

On the Shedding of Innocent Blood

God is personally pledged to avenge the shedding of innocent blood.

For He will avenge the blood of his servants.(Deuteronomy32:43) and for his law decrees the shedding of the killer's blood by other men: Whoever sheds man's blood, by man, his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God has God made man. (Genesis 9:6)


Father, in these dark days, when Satan has blinded men's souls to the TRUTH of Your Word, we stand in the gap and we cry out for mercy for our nation. We ask that You would provide any means of divine intervention necessary, so that our federal tax dollars NOT be used even one more day to slay the unborn babies in our land. We ask You to please stop this holocaust of the unborn, and to show us the way of escape. In Jesus' Name, amen.

Tomorrow's Summit

ObamaCare: The Latest Daytime Drama

Tomorrow the American people will be treated to new a daytime drama show. It s called "ObamaCare," and it will be broadcast live from Washington, D.C. Starring in the leading role of this drama is a new face on the political stage hailing from Chicago, Barack Obama. The supporting cast consists of numerous veterans of the political theater from both stage Right and stage Left.

I m sure it will be a gripping, action-packed event, keeping you on the edge of your seat as this cast of characters grapples with transformational change. Depending on how tomorrow s pilot program is received, ObamaCare may be coming to your town. The cost of admission is just $1 trillion.
I can joke about tomorrow s summit because no one seriously expects any major breakthroughs or compromises to be struck. Most observers feel this is just for show, setting the stage for Obama and congressional Democrats to go nuclear and change the rules, ramming socialized medicine through Congress using a complicated parliamentary maneuver. (By the way, Obama and Senate Democrats were vehemently against such moves before they were for them.) That said, Republicans must do a good job of getting their views across to the American people who are watching. They cannot allow the president to dominate the event, which is exactly what the White House intends.

Karl Rove recently reviewed the transcript of Obama's meeting with House Republicans in Baltimore. He was astonished by the number of statements Obama made that were demonstrably false. Rove warns House Republicans not to let the president get away with it again. It s not necessary to yell "You lie," but Republicans must respectfully call the president on every misstatement of the facts. The stakes are simply too high. (Gary Bauer; End-of-Day; 2-24-10)

The Good News Corner

Derek Prince: As the Church Goes, So Goes a Nation

[Note from the editor: Why is this "good news," you might be asking? Because, no matter what the problem that confronts us, the answer lies with us! The church. The Body of Christ.

We offer a short excerpt from this excellent article, written by Derek Prince. To read this document in its entirety, please go here to access the archives for Intercessors for America. Thank you.]
"What God will do in America de¬pends largely on what the church will do." (Derek Prince)

"Bend the church and bow the world." (Evan Roberts)

My theme is that in any nation where the church is established, God holds the church accountable for the condition of that nation. This is a sobering and far reaching thought.

Ultimately, what we want to do is reach and im¬pact America. If I had to reach America directly today, this gathering would be the wrong place for me because all or nearly all of you are commit¬ted believers. But, to effectively reach America, anyone concerned has to reach the church. It is through the church that God reaches and impacts a nation. God also judges the church in a nation partly by the condition of the nation for which he holds the church accountable.
So what is the church? The church, the Ecclesia is Christ's governing body on earth. We are responsible to heed His statutes, exercise "vice-regency," and administrate His government. You can see that this is a totally strange concept to the majority of churchgoers today. Yet, the Word of God is set¬tled, and therefore Christ holds us accountable for the way we do it, or do not do it.

What God will do in America de¬pends largely on what the church will do. Did you hear that? Should I say it again? What God will do in America depends largely on what the church will do.
I'll give you one familiar scripture which is the number one scripture for all intercessors, 2 Chronicles 7:14: If my people . . . I will heal their land. I've left out all of the middle, but what it means is that if God is to heal our land, His people will have to do something. If his people do not do it, He will not heal the land.

This is the bottom-line situation as I see it. I open and share this with you because if we want to change the nation, we have to start by praying for revival and changing the church.

In the Welsh revival, God used a man named Evan Roberts. He had a slogan, "Bend the church and bow the world." If the church will bend, the world will bow. If the church will not bend to the Lord, the world will not bow.

So in many ways, not in ev¬ery respect, the destiny of America is in the hands of the church, people like us. Do we realize our responsibility? It is a very solemn responsibility.

He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the full¬ness of Him who fills all in all. (Ephesians 1:22,23)
