"Praying for All in Authority"
Wednesday, November 9, 2016
"Standing Together in the Kingdom of God . . .
Under the Cross of Christ"
"He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God."
"His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom." (Daniel 7:27)
Focus: Middle East
1. Defense minister slams IDF officers 'infected with political syndrome' - Israel Hayom
Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman was criticized Sunday after a video was posted on social media in which he can be heard slamming IDF officers who express political opinions during briefings to MKs and ministers.
Lieberman recently lambasted other politicians who criticize IDF officers for "speaking out of turn" on political issues.
Lieberman's remarks were made last week in a meeting with heads of military academies. He was commenting on a Channel 10 News report that a senior Military Intelligence officer, during a recent briefing to MKs and ministers, had claimed that the government's assertion that there was no basis to hold peace talks with the Palestinians at this time was unfounded.
2. Police Warn Israelis About Potential Perils of Frequenting Palestinian Villages for Good Deals on Goods, Services - Algemeiner
JNS.org - Israelis who travel to the West Bank's Area B with the hope of saving money on routine errands often end up mugged, the Israel Police said Sunday.
Area B, which contains about 440 Palestinian villages, has been under Palestinian civil control and shared Israeli-Palestinian security control since the 1993 Oslo Accords. Israelis have been frequenting Palestinian villages in that area for years because its dozens of auto repair shops, car wash facilities, nurseries and florists offer considerably lower prices than their Israeli counterparts.
While Israelis are barred from entering Area A, which is under full Palestinian control, there are no travel restrictions regarding Area B.
3. Jewish Home to pressure Netanyahu on 'Normalization Law' - Israel National News
MK Shuli Mualem (Jewish Home) said on Tuesday that starting on Wednesday, greater pressure will be exerted on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to promote the so-called "Normalization Law", which seeks to provide legal backing for Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
"Tomorrow after the elections in the United States we will intensify the pressure on the Prime Minister to pass the Normalization Law as quickly as possible and finish the process," she wrote in the WhatsApp group for representatives of the Jewish Home in Samaria.
4. UN committees adopt 10 resolutions against Israel in a single day - Times of Israel
Committees of the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday adopted 10 resolutions against Israel.
The committees were also taking up four other resolutions - on Syria, North Korea, Iran and Crimea.
At least two of the resolutions involving Israel reportedly ignored Jewish ties to the Temple Mount, referring to the holy site by its Muslim name, Al Haram Al Sharif - in echoes of two resolutions passed last month by UNESCO. (Read more)
5. In historic first, senior British royal said to be planning official trip to Israel - Times of Israel
In what would be an historic first formal visit, a senior member of the British royal family is planning an official trip to Israel in 2017, a tour that would coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, according to a UK Jewish community leader.
While royals have visited Israel in the past, no representative of the British monarchy has ever come to country on an official "royal tour." An official royal visit to Jewish state would be the first in the Jewish state's 68-year existence, during which nearly every other country on earth has been visited by a representative of the Crown.
The community leader said the details of the visit were not yet finalized but that the trip would be led by a senior member of the royal family.
The Daily Brief
Every prayer below is presented to our Lord in the Name of Jesus Christ, amen.
1. Trump Wins Presidency, Defeats Clinton in Historic Election Upset - Intercessors for America
Donald Trump, defying the pundits and polls to the end, defeated Hillary Clinton in Tuesday's presidential election and claimed an establishment-stunning victory that exposes the depth of voter dissatisfaction - and signals immense changes ahead for American policy at home and abroad.
Seventeen months after the billionaire tycoon's Trump Tower entrance into the race, the first-time candidate once dismissed by the political elite has become the 45th president of the United States of America.
> > > For an excellent, in-depth analysis of yesterday's election results, including maps and vote tallies, please go here. Written by Dave Kubal, CEO, Intercessors for America
- Rulers and kings come and go, but the Lord sits on the throne forever. Our faith is in Him alone, and it cannot be shaken based on election results. Whether you are happy about the results or disappointed that your candidate didn't win, always remember that God can use anyone for His purposes and continue to pray that our newly elected officials will submit their hearts to Him.
- "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." (Matt. 6:9-10)
2. Clinton concedes presidential race - The Hill
Hillary Clinton conceded the presidential race to Donald Trump Wednesday morning, saying "this is painful, and it will be for a very long time."
"Last night, I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country. I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans," she told campaign staffers and supporters in a New York hotel ballroom.
"I'm sorry we didn't win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country," she added. (Read more)
- Father God, we thank You that, for many years now, You have heard our prayers for Mrs. Clinton: first as First Lady, then as the Secretary of State, and now as the Democratic Candidate for the Office of the President. Lord God, only You know how to find Your way into the heart of a man. We continue to intercede for Mrs. Clinton today, that You would comfort and soften her heart, and help her find the way to salvation, through the Shed Blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ our Lord, amen.
- " . . . open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me." (Acts 26:18)
3. Netanyahu hails Donald Trump as a 'true friend' of Israel - Times of Israel
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday congratulated Donald Trump on his election victory, saying the Republican is "a true friend of the State of Israel."
Netanyahu's remarks were released a few hours after Trump proclaimed victory over his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, in a surprise electoral coup.
"We will work together to advance security, stability and peace in our region," Netanyahu said in a statement.
"The bond between the US and Israel is based on shared values, shared interests and a shared future. I am sure that President-elect Trump and I will continue to strengthen the special alliance between Israel and the US and we will bring them to new heights," he added. (Read more)
- Father God, we thank You for, and we embrace this word of blessing from P.M.Benjamin Netanyahu over the President-Elect of the United States of America. We look forward to a time of strong friendship and support for the nation of Israel under this new administration. In Your name, amen.
- "There are friends that one hath to his own hurt; but there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother." (Proverbs 18:24)

4. The 2016 US General Election Board - Fox News
Go here to see the election results, state by state.
- Father God, we have been crying out, in repentance, for a miracle of deliverance . . . that we might find our way back to you, and to once again be governed by righteous men in authority. Father, thank You for hearing and for answering our prayers, in Your Name, amen.
- "Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place." (2 Chronicles 7:15)
5. Republicans defend grip on U.S. Congress as Trump wins presidency - Reuters
Republicans maintained their majorities in both chambers of the U.S. Congress in a momentous election on Tuesday in which Republican Donald Trump won the presidency, empowering the party to reshape Washington.
The Republican sweep sets up the United States for two years of "unified" government, which would normally mean significant policy change, although Trump's election was anything but normal and he will start his presidency with unusual handicaps.
Both Republican leaders on Capitol Hill held Trump at arm's length during the campaign. Trump offended and attacked some congressional Republicans on the stump, including House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan.
Early on Wednesday, shortly after Clinton conceded to Trump, Ryan said in a statement: "We are eager to work hand-in-hand with the new administration to advance an agenda to improve the lives of the American people."
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, also a Republican, said in a guarded and similarly timed statement: "The American people have chosen a new direction for our nation." (Read more)
- Father God, with this STRONG ALLIANCE of men and women of like mind in both the White House and in Congress, we thoroughly expect to see great progress made soon in reversing federal mandates that have been detrimental to the health and the well-being of our nation. We call forth the Broom of Heaven to sweep out the "swamp" and to bring in a cleansing wind of renewal in these two branches of government, in Your Name, amen.
- "I will sweep it with the broom of destruction," declares the LORD of hosts.
6. Congress to Return Next Week; Begins its "Lame Duck" Session - Capitol Hill Prayer Partners
The new Congress will not convene until Jan. 3, but the "lame-duck" Congress will return next week and Republicans are set to begin the process of picking leaders for both chambers. (Various sources)
- Father God, we decree that this shall not be a "lame duck" Congress, but will be one that shall be endowed with Your strength to finish the work that is yet set before them to complete in this calendar year. We continue to call forth a "stone wall" against the nomination of any justice to sit on the Supreme Court in its vacant seat, until after Donald Trump has taken office in January. In Your name, amen.
- "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." (Galatians 6:9)
7. Stocks Battle Back: Dow Flirts with Closing High After Stunning Trump Victory - Fox News
Wall Street isn't afraid of a President Trump - at least for now.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average came within 49 points of a new record closing level on Wednesday, hours after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States and hours after financial markets had a brief panic attack which sent stocks spiraling.
It was a stunning conclusion to what had been an exhausting 2016 presidential election. In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, Trump -- the Republican nominee -- had clinched the White House, but the dramatic Brexit-style carnage expected in global markets in the wake of his win failed to hold as Trump called for the country to unite in the days ahead. As equities rallied back from steep overnight losses, bond yields reached their highest level in three years. (Read more)
- Lord God, we thank You for this strong indicator that, already, the SHIFT is in place, and our nation IS headed back in the right direction. Praise You, Father, amen.
- "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn." (Proverbs 29:2)
8. Gunman found dead after shooting that locked down Southern Calif. polling places - Fox News
A gunman who opened fire in Azusa, Calif., was found dead in a nearby home Thursday night after the shooting forced two polling places in the area to go on lockdown. The shooter killed one person and wounded at least two others, police said.
Officials locked down the two polling places, Dalton Elementary School and Memorial Park, in the moments after the shots rang out. It was unclear whether the shooting had anything to do with the election.
- Father, we pray for the families of those who were killed by this gunman today. We speak peace to this city in California.
- "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27)
9. Arizona police officer shot, killed; suspect on the loose - Fox News
Police in east-central Arizona were hunting for a gunman after a shooting outside a fast-food restaurant killed an officer.
The Show Low officer, Darrin Reed, died in a nearby hospital several hours after the afternoon shooting. Police identified the suspect as 36-year-old Daniel Erickson and said he was seen leaving a Show Low hotel in a vehicle.
Police said Erickson was dressed in a black leather trench coat and he reportedly was armed with a silver handgun.
- Father, we pray You lead the police to capture this gunman. We pray You protect those who are in the path of this gunman, in Jesus name.
- "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
10. The Remarkable Mr. Graham - Christianity Today
Christianity Today reports: "The preacher's long life started on a dairy farm near Charlotte, North Carolina, on November 7, 1918. The Great War in Europe ended on November 11, 1918. He liked to joke that it took the world only four days to hear that he had arrived.
Billy Graham's 98th birthday, today, seems a good time to pause and think about the impact of his work. Most evident are the numerical records. Graham probably spoke to more people face-to-face than any other person in history, 215 million at last count. Additional hundreds of millions encountered him via electronic and print media. In 1956, he founded Christianity Today, which soon ranked as the most widely read Christian periodical in the world.
Graham organized international conferences in Europe that helped galvanize the global evangelical movement. He nabbed a spot on Gallup's list of 'Most Admired Man in the World' 59 times, nearly twice as often as runner-up Ronald Reagan.
- Father, thank You for Mr. Graham and the example he has been to the people. We speak blessings on his life in Jesus name.
- "The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace."' (Numbers 6:24-26)
The Daily Jot
Wednesday, November 9, 2016
Several analysts characterized Donald Trump's presidential victory as similar to the recent Brexit vote where Great Britain rejected globalism and left the European Union. Perhaps the Trump victory should be characterized as Clexit-the mass exit of the American people from the Clinton brand of morally bankrupt and corrupt politics. According to exit polls, some 80% of evangelical Christians turned out with a strong vote for now President-elect Trump. The Wall Street Journal reports that born-again Christians voted for Trump in numbers larger than they supported the Republican presidential candidates in the past three elections. This proves the power of Christian's in this nation when they move in unity.
Clearly, American Christians sent a message to those who call evil good and good evil: that we are not going to take it anymore. The demeaning of Israel with the elevation of her enemies; the possibility of a Supreme Court bending our laws against life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; the loss of our jobs and dignity to globalism; unsecured borders; massive crime; race-baiting; bribery; socialist health care; Islamic terrorism; the disrespecting of God in the public square; the destruction of marriage-are the sum of the parts that equaled the whole result of this election. Christians stepped up and voted for the imperfect candidate to save the country from one of the most evil agendas in our history.
Now that we have seen how God can work though us when we are obedient; how prayer and action is honored, may the hope of unity found in Ephesians 4:14-16 be our mantle going forward: "That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supply, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, make increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love."
You see, we have our work cut out for us. We have bought some time. There are only promises of a better, more righteous future for our nation. We must hold accountability-not the type of accountability of judgment and condemnation to our fellow citizens who disagree with us and are blinded by the god of this world, but the accountability of the standard of Christ in whom we believe and are disciples. From Supreme Court appointments to the treatment of Israel to freedom of religion, we must stand in the gap and make the hedge. We must be ever vigilant that our nation is fully advantaged by the mercy our Lord has bestowed upon us. Let us continue to pray, act, repent, and seek the Lord that he may forgive our sin and heal our land. Happy Clexit!
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

God Save America!
- Miracle Headline in One of Australia's Biggest Newspapers
The Daily Telegraph is Australia's second largest daily newspaper, comparable to the New York Times, ran a headline before the US election result was announced, which said; God Save America! This anti-God secular newspaper had no idea that this was exactly the prayer of both Australian and American Christians who have been praying in unity in the lead up to the American Election. Australian Christians called for prayer from all over the world for the American elections at a 'Sunrise Prayer Relay' on Tuesday 8 November 2016. Australia is 18 hours ahead of the USA.
This anti-God secular newspaper had no idea that this was exactly the prayer of both Australian and American Christians who have been praying in unity in the lead up to the American Election. Australian Christians called for prayer from all over the world for the American elections at a 'Sunrise Prayer Relay' on Tuesday 8 November 2016. Australia is 18 hours ahead of the USA.
[Editor: This headline is a "play on words," as in Australia, it is a common practice to proclaim: "GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!"]
Warwick Marsh from the National Day of Prayer and Fasting in Australia said, "We congratulate Donald Trump on his win but America does not need Clinton or Trump. America needs God. That is why we are so excited about the headline 'God Save America' because that is still our prayer. We are praying for Revival and Transformation in America and a release of the Gospel in the USA. America needs Jesus."
Pat Steele from the Sunrise Prayer Relay in Australia said; "I believe America is at the beginning of a great awakening. The verse I have for America is Isaiah 43:19, "See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." I feel that this election result will be the shock that people need to shake the dust off their eyes to know they need saving and reviving. It is only God who can lead them out of the wilderness and wash away the wasteland with His stream."
Steele continued. "That is why Warwick and I are pretty excited about the headline of the paper today, "God save America". Yes, we might be reading this out of the context of the article, but it reminds me of Balaam in Numbers 23 who was paid by the Moabites to curse Israel but when he opened his mouth to speak he prophesied blessing over them and hope for the future instead. Our God is the God who saves, He is a miracle working God and He is alive, God save America, Amen!!!"

A Verse to Decree
A Verse to Decree:
ISAIAH 45 - for the 45th President!
Thus says the Lord to Cyrus His anointed,
Whom I have taken by the right hand,
To subdue nations before him
And to loose the loins of kings;
To open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:
2 "I will go before you and make the rough places smooth;
I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars.
3 "I will give you the treasures of darkness
And hidden wealth of secret places,
So that you may know that it is I,
The Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.
4 "For the sake of Jacob My servant,
And Israel My chosen one,
I have also called you by your name;
I have given you a title of honor
Though you have not known Me. . .

The Joy of the Election Day, 16-hour, Prayer Call
Some Comments from Friends
Introduction: Yesterday, 35 ministries joined forces to create an Election Day Prayer Watch under the auspices of PrayerSurgeNow. The anointing on this 16-hour call was tremendous, and all of us who were invited to participate in this work were strengthened and blessed, as we stood watch together while the voting was taking place.
Below, please find the comments of several ministry teams that hosted this call, beginning with our own report from our hour "at the end."
- Capitol Hill Prayer Partners was joined by the National Day of Repentance to bring this 16-hour marathon call to a close. Our Lord blessed us, at the beginning of the call and again at the end, with two international components:
First, a word of blessing and encouragement out of Israel and then, at the end, the same was repeated by saints in Australia!
Pastor Jeff Daly cried out for a righteous vote on the Western wall, where the polls were still closing; and I (Sara) decreed VICTORY over the eleven states that had the highest representation in the Electoral College.
Finally, just before Australia joined us, we all prayed in the Spirit over the remaining states, as last-minute votes were tallied. GLORY!
The presence of Messiah was so powerful! I believe we could easily have remained on that line and prayed all night!
THANK YOU, DAI SUP HAN AND THE TEAM AT PRAYERSURGENOW, FOR ORCHESTRATING THIS TREMENDOUS TIME OF PRAYER!! AMEN!
. . . and now, we bring you feedback from several others who had the joy of experiencing this call yesterday:
-- "God bless everyone that pressed in through prayer and fasting. What a tremendous victory! Praise Jesus!!"
Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation
-- "Praise God for all the faithful Intercessors. We have a new beginning and need to continue to pray heaven to earth. Thank you!
-- Dear Dai Sup,
Glory! Glory! Glory!
We are reminded that "History belongs to the intercessors."
Let us be cognizant that our enemy tries to curtail God's moves at the moment of birth.
Let us press in to pray for HIs Ruach HaKodesh to cover His children and glorify the Spirit of America during this season.
Our prayers, especially those for the Peace of Jerusalem, are carried as a pleasing aroma by the angelic hosts before the Throne of God Almighty.
Shalom with deep, deep gratitude, Bob
-- Praise God from whom all mercies flow!
He is the Supreme Sovereign God and King and we yield our knee to the LORD OF HOSTS, PRAISE BE HIS NAME.
Let us continue to humble ourselves and acknowledge HIM above all other things. It is HE and HE ONLY that has saved us and delivered us from ourselves.
Now let us reflect HIS Glorious Light and be illuminators in the darkness! Remembering our calls and positions are in His hands, as we enter into His Rest and do as we see Him do, speak as we hear Him speak.
Contending As One for His Glory,
-- We in Canada at the National House of Prayer celebrate with you. We pressed into prayer and one of our directors had a dream that Trump was visiting our H.O.P. He was directed to place him in our 'Life Room' (ongoing prayer to end abortion and euthanasia). We ended up praying in this room and felt that it became a birthing room; that God was going to 'birth' Trump as president.
Now I sense as probably most of you, that we need a Prayer Shield of protection around this 'new birth'. The demonic plan of full term abortion could try and abort your new president. As you probably already do, we need a Prayer Shield that will protect him and his assiciates 'Full Term', that God can accomplish all he desires through him.
God bless you all for your amazing example,
Your friends in Canada,
Rob, Fran, and team
-- Many blessings to all. Lou and I soberly celebrate this moment with you from Europe, mindful of the need for a great continuing presence of prayer in the days ahead -- more and stronger than ever. The European response to the election, even among believers, is decidedly mixed at best. We press on in the grace of God. Revival and reformation at every level is vital. Thank you for letting us join with you in these momentous events.
Chief Strategy Officer, TheCall
-- Praise our Good Good Father for His mercy endures forever!. He has given us last chance to repent and be transformed into godly nation. . There are huge mountain before us that we should keep on praying with faith more than ever.
Mark 11:23 - " Whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea', and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says." Blessings,
TC Kim, Facilitator
-- Amen! What a night!
This is indeed a powerful moment in time! Let us rightly discern the shift that is taking place on the earth and in the atmosphere at this hour. I ask the Lord help us to perceive and carry the weight of the new anointing He is releasing! We must be clear about Who He is in us and who we are in Him at this hour.
The world is longing to see the Manifest Presence of God, radiated through His true sons and daughters. Through the Children of the Light, those who submit fully to Him, receive His guidance and allow Him to fill us with His Spirit, He will release an anointing that will enable us to move as Jesus did, among His people, filled with humility, integrity and love.
Father, help us to rightly discern the Body at this hour. You are indeed doing a new thing and You want to start with us, Your children, before moving out into the "world". Help us to make ourselves completely vulnerable to Your Spirit, so that You might teach, guide, direct, and correct us so that we, in turn, might inspire others to do the same.
Dear friends, I am looking forward to discerning all this corporately, so that we might know how and why He is bringing us together, for His purposes at this hour.
Thank each of you for the blessing you are to the Body!
Your sister and servant,
Liberty Prayer Network / Liberty Counsel
