The Daily Brief

1. U.N. panel's report on Palestinian statehood bid due in 2 weeks - CNN

The U.N. Security Council's admissions committee is set to review the Palestinian application for statehood Friday, (today). It's the first meeting of that committee, which includes all 15 members of the council.The debate is expected to be largely symbolic in the face of a promised U.S. veto. But the permanent observer of the Palestinian Authority to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, held out hope this week that the application would be accepted. The United States did not raise an objection to the referral to the committee.

PA: We are one vote shy of a majority in Security Council - Jerusalem Post

Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki said Thursday that the Palestinians have received approval from eight members of the UN Security Council in support of their bid for full membership to the United Nations.

- O Lord God of Israel, the Covenant Keeping God, we come to You, asking firstly for forgiveness that our ambassador to the UN, was not instructed to block this referral. We ask You to show mercy to Your people here in the U.S., and especially in Israel. We know You are a just God, Who loves mercy, but You are also true to Your Word, and watch over it to perform it. We ask, Abba, that this committee would experience the "fear of the Lord", and know that if they come against Israel, they are coming against You and will pay an awful price. We ask that You would give them a clear revelation of that fact, to the point where this will fail in committee, and not be recommended to the whole council. We stand with our precious Israeli brethren against this evil plot of the enemy! Amen!

- " I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land." (Joel 3:2) (See an additional article on this news, below.)

CIA-led drone attack kills terror leader, American, Anwar al-Awlaki, and Al Qaeda magazine editor Samir Khan in Yemen, in a strike that used two Predator drones and Hellfire missiles. Al-Awlaki tried to use WMDs to attack Westerners.

We thank You for the precision with which they were able to locate him, and carry out the mission. We pray that somehow his relatives here will be brought into a saving knowledge of You, and be able to forgive him. Amen.

- "The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden. The LORD is known by his acts of justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands." (Psalm 9:15,16)

a) Stagnant U.S. jobs market bodes ill for world economy - Reuters

Record-high long-term unemployment is testing politicians and central bankers to the utmost as the impact of a shortfall in demand is amplified by an aging population, a mismatch of skills and inadequate efforts to get people back to work.

- Jehovah-Jireh, our Provider, we look to You for Your wisdom to be given to Your people, and to our legislators, as they deal with this very high unemployment rate. Not only are our people suffering, but it is having a global effect on other nations. We ask for Your mercy and provision for those of our people who are seeking employment. We ask that You give them creative ideas to earn money, that will enable them to feed their families until they secure gainful employment again. We thank You that You direct our steps, and that You have promised to supply the needs of Your people. Amen.

- "And let our own people really learn to apply themselves to good deeds, to honest labor and honorable employment, so that they may be able to meet necessary demands, whenever the occasion may require and not be living idle and uncultivated and unfruitful lives." (Titus 3:14)

The Census Bureau admitted Tuesday that it had "artificially inflated the number of same-sex couples" in the United States, initially reporting a number that was about 40 percent higher than what it now believes is accurate.

- Lord, we thank You for revealing the truth of this matter. We know that Yeshua is the Truth, and that Your Word declares that You desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden most parts you make us to know wisdom (Ps. 51:6). We pray, O Lord, that You will continue to expose the lies of those who wish to deceive the public, and stop the mouth of liars. (Ps. 63:11) We ask You to uncover and expose the deception of those who have "secret agendas". We thank You, amen.

- "For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light." (Mark 4:22)

National Park Service officials say engineers have completed an inspection of earthquake damage at the pyramid-like top of the Washington Monument.At a briefing Friday, officials said engineers also inspected six levels of stone below the top for damage done during the 5.8 earthquake. The team is rappelling down the monument, removing loosened pieces of stone and mortar from numerous cracks. Park Service spokesman Bill Line says the work will continue through the weekend and is expected to be completed Tuesday.

- Father, we thank You for the degree of protection that You provided for our national monument, honoring our first President, a man we believe knew You and loved You. We sense that this "damage" is a sign in the natural, that the foundation of our nation on You, is "cracking" and in danger. We, therefore, reaffirm our commitment and allegiance to You. We thank You for the opportunity of entering into the "Forty Days of Light and Fire over D.C. and Eleven Days in Philadelphia of reformation intercession for our fifty states, plus one very important District", which will take place October 3 - Nov. 11, 2011. [See GOOD NEWS, below.] We ask that our foundation as a nation committed to You, will be strengthened and stabilized! We pray for repair of the cracks in the natural and in the Spirit! In Your Name we pray, Amen!

- "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance." (Psalm 33:12)

Abba, You do nothing by chance. We ask that the Stripe that You bore to defeat this cancer would be activated now, by our prayers, because it is written: "By Your stripes, she is healed." In Your Name, amen.

The Daily Jot

When leadership lacks God, wisdom and common sense

The man who occupies the Oval Office is now saying that Americans are "soft." He and a willing Congress incurred historically record debt on a nonsensical plan to spend the nation out of a recession; unemployment is over 9% with far more Americans now hopelessly unemployed; food and fuel prices have skyrocketed; a record number of people have lost their homes; the government will not defend our borders; American foreign policy is spending billions in support of terrorist organizations overthrowing governments--and because some 73% of the people believe the country is on the wrong track with over 40% saying the worst is yet to come--the president says we are soft. This is leadership? Hardly.

This Administration, and for the most part, this Congress--let's just say the Federal government--behaves insanely. It puts out reports that Christian Americans are a terrorist threat, yet refuses to deal with the real terrorist threat--Islam. In fact, when yet another Islamic is arrested for plotting terrorist acts, the Department of Justice--America's chief upholder of the law--has the nerve to say the Islamist Jihadist is "is not reflective of a particular culture, community or religion." The same Department of Justice recently sold weapons to Mexican drug cartel members in an effort to track their crimes. The result was an American border agent was killed, and even more crimes were committed using these weapons.

Its like there is no common sense whatsoever in the leadership of America. The president recently suggested that the European Union incur more debt to "recapitalize" their banks in avoiding a Euro-meltdown. German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble said it was a "stupid idea," making "no sense." He went on to say that the president should mind his own business and solve his own problems before giving advice to others. The entire idea of creating debt to get out of debt is stupid. Link that with ignoring two of the greatest threats to freedom--Islam and big government--and we have a "stupid" crisis on our hands, which amounts to a leadership crisis.
Many of America's leadership are products of the liberal '60's. They fell prey to the secular humanist, Soviet-inspired plan to undermine America called "Ideological Subversion." Former KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov described it as brainwashing left-leaning people to change their perception of reality so "no one is able to come to sensible conclusions." As a result we have godless leadership lacking wisdom. We are like Isaiah 59:13-14 which says, "In transgressing and lying against the Lord and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter."

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Urgent Prayer request from Israel

In order for a Palestinian state to come into being, it must get nine votes out of 15 in the Security Council. Secondly the resolution must not be vetoed by any of the five permanent members - the U.S., Britain, France, China and Russia.

The U.S. has declared that it will veto such a resolution if nine or more members vote for a Palestinian state. It will be much better for the U.S. if there are less than nine votes - as the the U.S. would then not have to use its veto - which will further alienate the Arab and Moslem world.
So far, these nations have declared they will vote for a Palestinian state: China, Russia, Brazil, India, Lebanon, South Africa. Now Nigeria and Gabon have just announced they too will vote for a Palestinian state. That makes eight states. The nations that have said they will vote against the UN declaring such a state are the U.S., Britain, France, Germany. That leaves three states: Bosnia, Colombia and Portugal undecided. If the Palestinians can get one of those three to vote for them, they will have the nine votes - a serious blow to the U.S. and Israel, and the Western countries.

When we see these close battles - where one or two votes could change history - we can know there is a fierce battle in the heavenlies. And we are commanded of God to stand in the gap. We can have a part in God's purposes by praying His Will be done. And we know in this issue from hundreds of Bible verses that God has given this land to Israel.

Please pray specifically that Bosnia, Colombia and Portugal will NOT vote for a Palestinian state.
This is not only a serious issue for the West and for Israel. There have been prophetic voices saying that the nations that vote AGAINST ISRAEL will go into deeper economic problems and chaos in their countries. Those who vote FOR ISRAEL will have some economic problems, but will then, by the grace of God, pull out of it.

No one knows when the vote will take place in the Security Council. It could be a matter of days or weeks.


Thank you

The Good News Corner:


[To learn how you can be involved in DC40, please visit their website at:]
A nation will arise as one to release reformation intercession for 51 days. Beginning on October 3 with Hawaii, the last state to enter the Union, each state will stand shoulder-to-shoulder and pray as the state of Hawaii is point man for the day.

The other 49, with spiritual shields locked together, will pray with Hawaii for our nation's capital to be eternally reformed. On that day we will also pray for the state of Hawaii to step into the fullness of her destiny, and for the full release of the redemptive gifts she carries to be woven into the fabric of our nation in an even greater measure than before.

On October 4, it will be Alaska's turn to take the point position of leading intercession in releasing the power of eternal light over our nation's capital, with the strength of the other 49 standing as one alongside her.

And so we will move - each state taking its turn front-and-center, in reverse order of its entry to the Union, affecting eternal change in our nation's capital, so that our elected officials can govern from a new position of non-compromising light and understanding, as we change the spiritual atmosphere over Washington DC forever.

We have released a 51-day prayer directive to help us harmonize our intercession; this will be available for download on our website,

Bless you,
James Nesbit
