Focus on Israel
1. Netanyahu resolves political crisis, will continue to lead country - World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday morning found a solution to a political crisis that threatened to bring down his government and take Israel to early elections.
Members of the coalition have been quarreling over whether to extend military draft exemptions afforded to ultra-Orthodox men. The ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism and Shas parties said they would not vote for the 2019 budget without the draft exemptions, while Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, head of the Yisrael Beiteinu party, a key secular partner, has vowed to bolt the coalition if the budget does not pass within the next few weeks.
2. Police end standoff following Haifa rampage that left 4 wounded - Israel National News
A police standoff with a man who wounded four in northern Israel ended Monday afternoon when officers entered the apartment where the suspect had barricaded himself and managed to subdue him before taking him into custody.
The arrest came hours after the suspect attempted to force his way into the Bnai Zion Medical Center in Haifa while carrying a hand saw Monday morning.
When police officers approached the suspect, he wounded two of them with the saw and fled the scene. Both officers are reportedly in light condition.
The suspect then broke into an apartment on Hashmonaim Street and attacked an elderly couple, wounding them. While emergency units dispatched to the scene were able to rescue the wounded couple, the suspect managed to barricade himself inside their apartment.

4. Arab League Secretary - General Urges Guatemala To Cancel Embassy Move - Jerusalem Post
The Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul-Gheit urged Guatemala to cancel its decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem on Thursday, according to the official Palestinian Authority news site Wafa.

5. Jordan's king working to revive peace bid; ex-envoy says 2-state solution 'dead'- Times of Israel
Jordan's King Abdullah II said Monday that he has been working to revive the peace process and bring Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table.
The Jordanian monarch made the remark during a meeting in Amman with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, according to Palestinian and Jordanian sources.
Abbas and Abdullah discussed coordinating their positions in the wake of US President Donald Trump's decisions to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the US embassy to the city, the sources said. The two also discussed the situation in the West Bank "in light of Israeli escalation," the sources added. It was Abbas's first visit abroad since his February 20 address to the United Nations Security Council.
The Daily Brief
1. House GOP ending Russia probe, says no collusion found - The Hill
The House Intelligence Committee is shutting down its contentious investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, the top Republican leading the probe announced on Monday.
The committee will interview no more witnesses and Republicans are in the process of preparing their final report, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) told reporters. A draft of that roughly 150-page report will be delivered to committee Democrats for review on Tuesday.
The draft document asserts that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, the most politically charged question examined by the committee. It will also contradict an official U.S. intelligence community assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin showed a "preference" for Donald Trump during the race - another assertion that Trump has disputed. "We found no evidence of collusion," Conaway said Monday. "We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment in taking meetings - but only Tom Clancy could take this series of inadvertent contacts, meetings, whatever, and weave that into some sort of a spy thriller that could go out there." (Read more)
- Father God, we are relieved to see this news. After these long, arduous months, in the end, there is indeed nothing to report here -- just as President Trump has been stating all along. Thank You, Father, amen.
- "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." (John 8:32)
2. White House backs off call to raise minimum age to buy long guns - Fox News
The White House announced a series of recommendations Sunday night meant to stop school shootings, including a full audit and review of the FBI tip line after warnings about a student who killed 17 people at a Florida high school last month were not acted upon.
The administration did not call for immediately increasing the minimum age for buying long guns to 21, as President Trump had previously advocated. However, it did announce that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos would chair a federal commission on school safety to study the proposal.
The recommendations were announced nearly a month after the mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., in which 17 students and staff were killed. DeVos said in a statement that the commission would look at a "wide range" of ideas in order to ensure that "no student or family should ever have to live the horror of Parkland or Sandy Hook ever again." (Read more)
- Lord, let Your will alone be the guide to all these pieces of gun legislation. We ask for Your mighty hand of protection not only over our youth, but over the Bill of Rights as a whole. We must return You to our society, and we repent for allowing the left to remove You. Send Your Spirit, Lord, and rebuke the enemy for the sake of Your Name!
- "And whatever you ask in My Name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the son." (John 14:13)
3. Mnuchin: NKorean Sanctions Are Staying On; Defense Posture Is Staying the Same - CNSNews.com
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that despite President Donald Trump's planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, the administration is not removing its "maximum pressure campaign."
Asked to respond to calls from some in the media who say the U.S. is rewarding North Korea despite its role in the death of Otto Warmbier, threats to Guam, and launching multiple missile tests, Shah said, "Well obviously there's a lot of issues here, but I do find it amusing that the president has been criticized over the last year for being too aggressive, and many people said he should be using diplomacy.
"So now we have a situation where the president is using diplomacy, but we're not removing the maximum pressure campaign. That's the big difference here. The sanctions are staying on. The defense posture is staying the same as it is, so the president is going to sit down and see if he can cut a deal," he added. (Read more)
- Father God, we continue to offer You praise for this breakthrough in negotiations with North Korea. We ask that Your wisdom would guide every step our President will take now, as he enters into this bold new venture. Amen.
- "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence." (I Timothy 2:1,2)
4. Union President Drops Trump Bombshell . . . Democrats' Worst Fears Are Coming True - Conservative Tribune
Unions have been seen as the foundation of Democrat election victories for decades. The loyalty of those workers to vote blue has been taken for granted by liberal politicians since at least the 1960's but that could now be changing. Donald Trump's tariff proposals have generated serious controversy, with some critics calling them "protectionism." The economic soundness of the president's plan is still up for debate, but as a political move it might have been genius. A major union has just revealed that they're warming to Trump, and their traditionally blue votes could be switching to red very soon.
During a Thursday interview with the decidedly anti-Trump MSNBC network, the president of United Steelworkers had shockingly positive words to say about Trump and his tariff plan. "Gerard praised Trump for making it clear he is going to 'tackle trade deficits' which he called a 'wealth transfer' because they are 'taking good jobs away,'" reported Real Clear Politics. "It's going to make it very hard for our members to ignore what he just did and what makes me sad is we've been trying to get Democrats to this for more than 30 years," Gerard told MSNBC host Chuck Todd.
That statement could be huge: United Steelworkers is the largest industrial labor union in the entire country, with close to a million members. The union also has close connections to other groups, including AFL-CIO, a powerful lobbying and voting bloc. "The president has made it really clear that he's going to tackle the trade deficits," Gerard explained. "It is unacceptable that America would have an $800 billion trade deficit but when you subtract services, roughly $600 billion annual trade deficit." Gerard almost seemed to be repeating Trump's own talking points. "That's a wealth transfer and you can't argue that those trade deficits are creating good jobs," he stated. "Those trade deficits are taking good jobs away."
The union boss again slammed Democrats - something that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago - and again voiced his trust in Trump. "All we're asking for is a level playing field and with the president has done is send a signal that he's going to help us get a level playing field," Gerard said. "And we gave the Republicans and we gave the Democrats - we've given every government since before Clinton hope that they would do something."
While the media is busy slamming President Trump and calling his supporters crazy, actual Americans are seeing the positives from his first year in office. They're receiving bonuses and promotions from the tax cut, and signs of an optimistic economy that is ready to explode. The jury is still out on Trump's specific tariff plans, but one thing is certain: Democrats may be in for a surprise in the 2018 and 2020 elections. (Read more)
- Lord God, we praise You for this turnaround in the mindset of the American people, who are now seeing the blessings that are coming to us from the Trump administration. Bless you, Lord, amen.
- "However, as it is written: "What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived" -- the things God has prepared for those who love him-- . . . " (I Corinthians 2:9)
5. Warren: No to White House bid, DNA test; says heritage 'part of who I am' - Fox News
Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Sunday ruled out a 2020 presidential run and taking a DNA test to prove Native American ancestry -- an issue that has nagged her Senate campaigns and would almost certainly create problems in a White House bid. "I'm not running for president," Warren, a champion of the Democratic Party's progressive wing, told "Fox News Sunday."
When asked Sunday whether she'd agree to calls for genetic testing to resolve the heritage controversy, Warren launched into a family history, as purportedly told by her parents and grandparents, before saying, "It's a part of who I am, and no one's ever going to take that away."
Warren, who is seeking a second Senate term this year, has been accused of saying she is of Native American heritage to help in securing jobs, including one as a Harvard law professor.
She has acknowledged identifying as a minority, but denies using such status to help advance her career. (Read more)

6. US Hiring Surge: Employers Add 313K Jobs in February as Tax Cut Confidence Booms - CBN News
U.S. employers went on a hiring binge in February, adding 313,000 jobs, the most in any month since July 2016, and drawing hundreds of thousands of people into the job market. The Labor Department said wage gains, meanwhile, fell from January to 2.6 percent year-over-year. Strong hourly wage growth had spooked markets last month because it raised the specter of inflation. But January's figure was revised one-tenth of a point lower to 2.8 percent. The influx of new workers kept the unemployment rate unchanged at 4.1 percent.
Most economists expect growth to pick up in the coming months and to accelerate inflation slightly by year's end. They have forecast that the economy will expand at just a 2 percent annual rate in the January-March quarter before topping 3 percent in the next two quarters. For now, consumers have pulled back somewhat on spending despite income gains, thereby setting the stage for potentially stronger spending gains in coming months. After-tax incomes in January - which include benefit payments from the government and business income as well as wages - climbed by the most in a year. They were boosted, in part, by the Trump administration's tax cuts and company bonuses that were paid out in response to corporate tax cuts. And manufacturers expanded at the fastest pace in nearly 14 years in February, according to a survey of purchasing managers. The housing market, too, remains generally solid, with demand for homes strong in much of the country, though rising mortgage rates may begin to slow sales. (Read more)
- Lord, we praise You for this boon to our economy, and ask that You continue to release us from the chains of the previous administration. We also ask that You hold down any inflation, and protect Your people from problems that might arise.
- "And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together." (John 4:36)
7. Republican Jewish Coalition Calls on 7 Democrats to Resign Because of Their Links With Anti-Semitic Hate-Preacher Louis Farrakhan - CNSNews.com
Given their association and personal meetings with the hateful, anti-Semitic Louis Farrrakhan, seven members of the Democratic Party should resign, because their meetings with Farrakhan are morally and politically no different than if they had met with the Ku Klux Klan, said the Republican Jewish Coalition in a March 8 statement. Farrakhan, who heads the U.S.-based Nation of Islam (NOI), is America's "leading anti-Semite," according to the Anti-Defamation League, which added that the NOI "has maintained a consistent record of anti-Semitism and racism since its founding in the 1930s."
In its statement, the Republican Jewish Coalition said, "Farrakhan is first and foremost a preacher of hate. He preaches about Jewish 'control' over the government and media and has claimed to have 'pulled a cover off of that Satanic Jew,' saying 'your time is up, your world is through.' And those were just the comments from last week. "Anti-Semitism is unacceptable," said the coalition. "Farrakhan is the moral equivalent of a leader of the KKK. If it was discovered that members of Congress had met with the leader of the KKK, they would need to resign. In this case, for meeting with, and embracing, Louis Farrakhan, nothing short of resignation is acceptable from these seven Democrats."
The coalition said there are at least seven Democrats who have "close ties with Louis Farrakhan" and they should resign. These include: "[F]ormer Nation of Islam employee, Congressman Keith Ellison, who is Deputy Chair of the DNC. Ellison has tried to excuse his 2013 meeting with Farrakhan, while ignoring his more recent meeting with the NOI leader in Farrakhan's hotel room, in 2015.
At least six other Democrats are known to have embraced Farrakhan. These members of Congress -- Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, Danny Davis, Andre Carson, Gregory Meeks, and Al Green -- have all, while in office, sat down with Farrakhan for personal meetings.
"There can be no question about how abhorrent it is for these Democrats to be connected to Louis Farrakhan." (Read more)
- Lord, we ask that You cause these Democrats to either repent of their hate or step down immediately. If they do not, then remove them from office.
- "Let his days be few; and let another take his office." (Psalm 109:8)
8. Pilot in deadly East River helicopter crash made frantic 'mayday' call - Fox News
The helicopter pilot who was the lone survivor of Sunday's crash into New York City's East River made a chilling and frantic distress call moments before the aircraft plunged into the frigid waters, quickly repeating "mayday" into his radio. "Mayday, mayday, mayday," the pilot -- identified by the New York Post as 33-year-old Richard Vance -- called out over his radio seconds before going down in a crash that left all five of his passengers dead. "East River engine failure!"
Vance managed to survive by climbing onto a raft, but the passengers, who were part of a tour operated by New Jersey-based Liberty Helicopters, all died. It reportedly is the third crash in the past 11 years involving the company.
"It took a while for the divers to get these people out. They worked very quickly as fast as they could," Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. "It was a great tragedy that we had here." (Read more)
- Lord, we pray for Your hand of comfort and mercy upon those involved in this crash, and that the cause of it would be quickly determined.
- "Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me." (Psalm 23:4d)
9. Christian Bridal Shop Closes Down Over Fear of LGBT Law After Facing Death Threats - Christian Post
A Christian bridal shop in Pennsylvania that has faced death threats will shut its doors permanently due to the strong likelihood that a local town council will pass a law banning discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. W.W. Bridal in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, which made headlines in 2014 and again in 2017 because of the Christian owners' refusal to sell wedding dresses to same-sex couples, has announced that it will close down officially on March 30. Co-owner Lisa Boucher, who owns the store along with her mother and two sisters, told The Christian Post on Monday that there are multiple reasons for the family's decision to close the shop.
"So what they (the LGBT community) did was got enough people to run for town council and they had a lot of the kids from [Bloomsburg University] vote those members in so a law could be passed," Boucher explained to CP. "We actually have a document from the Democratic Committee here pretty much saying that there is going to be a fight with W.W. Bridal. What they say to do is they go into Google or Yelp and they post false reviews. We have been a 1-star since 2014 because they hide all of our positive reviews and they only lift up the negative reviews," Boucher said. "These people have not even come into our store. It is really hard to promote the business when there is false allegations out there."
People have not only threatened to burn down their place of business but have also threatened to shoot them in the head. Last summer, the shop closed down temporarily to the public and was only accepting appointments because the harassment got so bad. (Read more)
- Lord this kind of terrorism is unacceptable. We ask that You bring these heinous actions to the attention of people who have the power to stop them. We pray for faith and strength for the shop owners, and ask that You grant them the ability to wage spiritual warfare.
- "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you." (Acts 1:8a)
10. School District Bans Baptist Chaplain From Praying with Football Team - Todd Starnes
A Baptist pastor will no longer be permitted to serve as a chaplain for an Oklahoma high school football team after a notorious group of atheists filed a formal complaint. The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a Wisconsin-based group of atheists, agnostics and free-thinkers, was triggered by reports that the Cherokee Baptist Church had been feeding and providing assistance to the Putnam City High School football team. Mike Keahbone, the church's senior pastor, had been invited on occasion to deliver pre-game prayers in the team's locker room.
"Public school football teams cannot appoint or employ a chaplain, seek out a spiritual leader for the team, or agree to have a volunteer team chaplain, because public schools may not advance or promote religion," Freedom From Religion Foundation attorney Christopher Line wrote in a letter to Putnam City Schools. (Read more)
- Lord, the actions of this group of atheists have been allowed to run over us for decades. The First Amendment is "Freedom OF Religion" not freedom from religion. We repent for allowing this to occur. We ask that You begin to intervene in these kinds of cases and return America to where it belongs: in Your Hand, in Your mercy and love. Come, Holy Spirit, Come!
- "And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment." (John 16:8)
11. China's Xi allowed to remain 'president for life' as term limits removed - BBC
China has approved the removal of term limits for its leader, in a move that effectively allows Xi Jinping to remain as president for life. The constitutional changes were passed by China's annual sitting of the National People's Congress on Sunday. The vote was widely regarded as a rubber-stamping exercise. Two delegates voted against the change and three abstained, out of 2,964 votes.
China had imposed a two-term limit on its president since the 1990s. But Mr Xi, who would have been due to step down in 2023, defied the tradition of presenting a potential successor during October's Communist Party Congress. Instead, he consolidated his political power as the party voted to enshrine his name and political ideology in the party's constitution - elevating his status to the level of its founder, Chairman Mao. (Read more)
- Lord, this is a danger signal to the USA, as Xi Jinping now has the ability to ramp up his aggressive foreign policy stance. We ask that You extend Your wings over our service personnel abroad and protect them and our allies from harmful Chinese actions. We ask for Your Spirit to move over Xi Jinping and all of China, bringing new life.
- "He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge." (Psalm 91:4a)
12. Over 1,000 Muslims Take Refuge in CAR Church, Hiding From Anti-Balaka Militia Waiting to Kill Them - Christian Post
Over 1,000 Muslims have been hiding inside a Roman Catholic Church at a compound in Bangassou, Central African Republic, fearful that a hostile militia will kill them. While some media reports say the militia is mostly made up of Christians, Catholic sources are disputing that claim.
Catholic pastoral charity Aid to the Church in Need, which has been in contact with the church in Bangassou, told The Christian Post in an email Thursday that numerous media reports that describe the anti-balaka militia group as "Christian" are off the mark. "To call the anti-balaka a Christian militia, as is often done, is a mistake," said Maria Lozano, communications manager at Aid to the Church in Need International.
"Our partners in the field told us several times that there is not much about them that is Christian. They carry fetishes and amulets for protection. The conflict is between Muslims and non-Muslims, the many followers of traditional religions and non-Christian sects." (Read more)
- Father, we pray for a move of Your Spirit in this situation, over the Catholic Church, the anti-Balaka, and the Muslims trapped there. Remove the idols from all parties, remove the false gods, and reveal the truth of Messiah Jesus to all.
- "And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting." (Acts 2:2)

The wicked heart and encouragement
There is consistency in what is written in the Bible about the heart of man. Jeremiah 17:9 says, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" In Mark 7:21-23, Christ says, "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, and evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within and defile a man." Christ also said in Matthew 12:35, "A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things." The hearts of America's citizens define much of our society.
If wickedness prevails in the heart, what then can good men do to legislate good? There is no end to the evil men do to one another. School shootings, nursing home killings, abortions, murders, racism, bigotry, sexual crimes and domestic violence are commonplace in our society. Politicians try to solve the problems with symbolic window dressing, but no matter their intentions, the problems remain. All we have to do to see where things stand is turn on the big three television networks in prime time. Sexual innuendo, violence, crime, gunplay is about all you see unless you are watching reality programs that also promote deceit, sexual immorality, coarse humor and human turmoil.
You see, we live in a society that has become very dark. But what did Christ say about our responsibility as his disciples? He said in Matthew 5:13-16, "You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Ephesians 5:1 says, "Be you therefore followers of God, as dear children." Verses 8-10 say, "For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in the Lord: walk as children of light: For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." In quoting these scriptures, I want you to see that though the heart is wicked and the world is a dark and evil place, light overcomes darkness. You heart, words and actions are examples for others to have a change of heart, to accept the gift of salvation. In a sense, we are the warriors of heart to heart combat that others might have eternal life and also become a light unto the world.

"When they had placed them in the center, they began to inquire, "By what power, or in what name, have you done this?" ~ Acts 4:7
I've noticed a terribly disturbing trend lately, that is occurring with more and more frequency...so much so, that it is clearly not simply a coincidence. There has been a strange shift among ministries, which purport to be mission outreaches to Israel and the Jewish people, that have outright STOPPED mentioning the Name of Jesus.
In one recent email I received, only the coming "Messiah" is vaguely mentioned along with a politically correct message that surely God won't turn anyone away, right? Another one only speaks of sharing the same "God."
While Jews and Christians, do INDEED, call upon the same God, only ONE NAME offers Salvation.
Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. ~Acts 4:10-12

A Word from the Lord
A Word from the Lord
Monday, March 12, 2018
Submitted by Delores Purvis, A Member of the Board of Directors
Capitol Hill Prayer Partners
In my devotions today, I was speaking in the Spirit after I had finished reading the word and I believe I heard the Lord say " Get quiet ".
I closed my eyes and then I heard Him begin to speak. I was sitting at my desk where paper and pen were so I began to write what I heard. Here it is:
"The world does not know Me. It is filled with pretense among My people. Even when the church sees chaos all around the world, they hold to worldly agendas that mean nothing. An agenda and a form of godliness will not reserve a place in My kingdom."
"Do not believe in the peace this world tries to sell. As long as there are murders of My innocent children, there will be no peace."
"Rise up, My people! . . . Stop playing church! Don't you see? The time is short. Release My word wherever you go . . . Hospitals . . . Nursing homes . . . Super Markets . . . Prisons.
Don't be afraid to offend. Better to speak My word and offend than to see a soul fall into hell. Speak the truth and fulfill the plan I've set before you. I am the Truth and the Way and no one comes to the Father but by Me. "
"Why do My people quarrel over doctrines? There is only one doctrine and that is . . . The Kingdom of heaven is at hand . . . Behold, I come quickly. "
"For those who are faithful, I will come for you. I see your sufferings and afflictions and you are not alone. I am with you! I pray for you that you will endure until the end."
I then began to hear the horses again that I've heard before. Darkness began to descend and I heard a sound like gates being shut. ( This is from me ) Then I heard the Lord speak again.
"Tell My people to lift the darkness and open the gates. Stand firm and do not back down. Greater is He Who is in you than he who is in this world."
Isaiah 26:2 -- "Open the gates, that the righteous nation may enter. The ones that remain faithful."
Revelation 21:25 -- "Its gates will never be shut at the end of the day because there will be no night there."

CROWN HIM WITH MANY CROWNS

CROWN HIM WITH MANY CROWNS
"His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns." (Revelation 19:12)
Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne. Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own. Awake, my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee, And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity.
Crown Him the virgin's Son, the God incarnate born, Whose arm those crimson trophies won which now His brow adorn; Fruit of the mystic rose, as of that rose the stem; The root whence mercy ever flows, the Babe of Bethlehem.
Crown Him the Son of God, before the worlds began, And ye who tread where He hath trod, crown Him the Son of Man; Who every grief hath known that wrings the human breast, And takes and bears them for His own, that all in Him may rest.
Crown Him the Lord of life, who triumphed over the grave, And rose victorious in the strife for those He came to save. His glories now we sing, who died, and rose on high, Who died eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die.
Crown Him the Lord of peace, whose power a scepter sways From pole to pole, that wars may cease, and all be prayer and praise. His reign shall know no end, and round His piercèd feet Fair flowers of paradise extend their fragrance ever sweet.
Crown Him the Lord of love, behold His hands and side, Those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified. No angel in the sky can fully bear that sight, But downward bends his burning eye at mysteries so bright.
Crown Him the Lord of Heaven, enthroned in worlds above, Crown Him the King to Whom is given the wondrous name of Love. Crown Him with many crowns, as thrones before Him fall; Crown Him, ye kings, with many crowns, for He is King of all.
Crown Him the Lord of lords, who over all doth reign, Who once on earth, the incarnate Word, for ransomed sinners slain, Now lives in realms of light, where saints with angels sing Their songs before Him day and night, their God, Redeemer, King.
Crown Him the Lord of years, the Potentate of time, Creator of the rolling spheres, ineffably sublime. All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou has died for me; Thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity.

According to scientists at the Russian Academy of Sciences, a huge magnetic storm is making its way here in current times. This storm will, as some have said, cause headaches and dizziness in people all over the world.
According to RAS's graph three days before the storm on March 14th, 16th, and 17th we will experience intense geomagnetic altercations. Once this storm reaches us on March 18th things might be a bit odd. It could disrupt GPS navigations, disrupt satellites, and even harm power grids across the globe. This will be the third since the beginning of this year to actually reach our planet. The other two took place on January 15th and February 19th.
This geomagnetic storm is nothing to be afraid of and will probably only make it a little harder for you to sleep. Some people may be affected more than others but honestly, most of us don't even notice. Unless you are old or in bad health you most likely will just think you are having a rough day.

About Capitol Hill Prayer Partners
Our Mission Statement
Capitol Hill Prayer Partners (CHPP) is a ministry which is positioned on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., helping members of the Body of Christ to "pray for those in authority over us" in our federal government. Our primary purpose is to offer intercession on site for the members of Congress and their staffs each day that the Senate and the House of Representatives are in session; and our chief prayer focus is that "God's will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." [Matthew 6:10].
Because Jesus Christ has shed His blood for all, we, too, pray for ALL, in a nonpartisan manner. Also, because the scriptures indicate that "the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 4:17), we are confident that fervent prayer, offered in the halls of the highest chambers of government in our land, can avail much for America. Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes those who feel called to join us, engaging in this strategic work of intercession for our nation: "For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God." [Romans 13:1]
Friends may participate by receiving our daily prayer alerts. You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. CHPP is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt ministry. Thank you and God bless you!
