Focus on Israel

1. Russia Pulls Plug on Anti-Air System in Syria Opening Skies For Israeli Air Operations - Breaking Israel News

Russia has reportedly deactivated the S-400 anti-air system stationed at the Khmeimim Air Base in Syria in a move that frees up the skies for other countries including Israel and the U.S. to run air-operations in the region.

Debka File, an English language military intelligence website, published an unconfirmed report on Sunday citing Russian military sources as saying that the radar systems of the S-300 and advanced S-400 systems had been deactivated. The systems are the most advanced in the Russian arsenal and are supposed to be able to track air traffic in the entire region. The article noted that despite being deployed in Syria for the past four years, they have never been used to prevent Israeli airstrikes against Syrian or Iraqi targets. Israel has reportedly coordinated these operations with Moscow. In last week's operation that killed Islamic State (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, President Trump was in communication with Vladimir Putin, possibly to coordinate the American air assets involved in the operation.

"This week, for the first time since the Russians military intervention in the Syrian war began in 2015, an American B-52 strategic bomber flew over Khmeimim and then headed down the Syrian coast before turning east and landing in Jordan," Debka wrote. "Our sources report that the lone US bomber was likely on a mission to test Russia's reported neutralization of its state-of-the-art defense systems in Syria.

2. Hamas warns it has enough rockets to target Tel Aviv for 'six months in a row' - YNET News

Hamas's leader in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, on Monday threatened to turn Israeli cities into "ghost towns" and warned the terror group has enough firepower to launch rockets into Tel Aviv "for six months in a row."

The remarks come just days after the latest cross-border flare-up between Israel and Palestinian factions in the coastal enclave, which saw at least 10 rockets being fired at Israeli communities near the Gaza border. A home in the southern city of Sderot sustained a direct hit. In response, the military said, a series of Israeli strikes targeted sites belonging to Hamas.

Speaking at a rally in Gaza, Sinwar appeared to be unfazed by the threats made by Israeli officials following the rocket barrage on Friday evening. "We have heard the threats Israeli leaders made towards us, but we will still make them curse the day they were born."

3. EU Parliament Members: Support Israel In Fight Against Hezbollah And Iran - Jerusalem Post

The European Union should support Israel more in the fight against Hezbollah and Iran, said senior European members of Parliament (MEPs) who visited Israel and toured Hezbollah's flagship cross-border attack tunnel.

"We have to talk about Israel more in the European Union, to see and understand the threats that are surrounding Israel especially by Hezbollah and Iran," MEP Karoline Edtstadler told The Jerusalem Post.

"The more you know the better you can understand Israel, which deserves more support from the EU," she said, stressing that "We all want to avoid a war because a war will have an effect on the rest of the world, including Europe, which is not so far away. That's not in the minds of people in Europe, they think it's far away but it's really not."

4. Several Jews attacked in Brooklyn - Israel National News

Several identifiably Jewish men and boys were attacked in a string of assaults in the Borough Park community of Brooklyn on the same night, JTA reported Monday. Three of the attacks late Friday night involved the same passenger car over five blocks. Surveillance cameras captured each incident, in which several men jump out of the car and chase Hasidic men and boys. In one incident, the passengers punched a Hasidic man after their vehicle pinned him against a parked car. Victims also were punched in two other incidents. According to Yeshiva World News, the victims are hesitant to file reports with the New York Police Department since suspects often are charged only with harassment.

5. Plot to bomb Colorado synagogue - Israel National News

A Colorado man has been arrested for plotting to blow up and poison a local synagogue.according to an affidavit filed Saturday in the US District Court in Colorado, the Denver Post reported.

Richard Holzer, 27, a white supremacist, planned to detonate bombs at the Temple Emanuel in Pueblo.

An undercover FBI agent met Holtzer on Friday after being in communication with him for about a month. Holtzer told the agent that he was a former member of the Ku Klux Klan and is currently a skinhead.

At their meeting, Holtzer presented the bombs he planned to use and also stated that he had poured arsenic into the synagogue's water pipes.

1. Fox News Poll: 49 percent favor impeaching Trump - Fox News

Nearly half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a new Fox News Poll. In addition, 6-in-10 believe the president did ask foreign leaders to investigate political opponents -- and two-thirds say that action is inappropriate.

Forty-nine percent want Trump impeached and removed from office, 4 percent say he should be impeached but not removed, and 41 percent oppose impeaching Trump. That's about where things stood in early October, when 51 percent said impeach/remove, 4 percent impeach/don't remove, and 40 percent opposed altogether.

The two-point dip in support for impeachment comes from a 5-point decline among Republicans, as 8 percent favor impeachment now, compared to 13 percent in early October. (Read more)

- Lord, we have only to remember that the polls all said that Hillary was going to win in 2016. We stand on Your Word, Your truth, and hold fast the promise of Your intervention to save our Republic from socialist disaster.

- "Some trust in chariots, and some in horses, but we will remember the name of the Lord our God." (Psalm 20:7)

2. Gohmert Warns On Impeachment: 'About To Push This Country To A Civil War' - Daily Wire

Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) warned Democrats on Thursday that their continued push for impeachment and actions over the last three years were putting the country on the brink of a "civil war."

A new Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service poll released this month found that the average American believed that the U.S. is two-thirds of the way to the "edge of a civil war."

Speaking on Democrats' desire to impeach President Donald Trump, Gohmert said on the floor of the House of Representatives that what Democrats "want it to be a one-sided non-due process sham court and it's about to push this country to a civil war if they were to get their wishes."

"And if there's one thing I don't want to see in my lifetime, I don't want to ever have participation in, it's a civil war," Gohmert continued. "Some historian, I don't remember who, said, 'guns are only involved in the last phase of a civil war.'" (Read more)

- Lord, we, too can see the division caused by the talk of impeachment. We pray for eyes to see and ears to hear TRUTH across not only the Congress, but all Americans as well. We pray for You to touch the heart of our President and his family as they navigate these horrific times.

3. HANNITY: Release Every Transcript of Joe Biden's Phone Calls with Ukraine - Sean Hannity

Speaking during his opening monologue on 'Hannity' Thursday night, Sean weighed-in on the escalating crisis enveloping Joe Biden's presidential campaign; demanding the release of transcripts between the former Vice President and Ukrainian officials.

"A former top prosecutor from the Ukraine has now implicated Joe Biden in a very serious crime. The cowardly Adam Schiff has been caught in yet another disgusting lie. I would like the release of every Biden-Ukraine phone call transcript," said Hannity.

"I would like every Obama-Iran transcript. I would like every Obama-Putin transcript. It's all a fishing expedition," he added. (Read more)

- Lord, we ask that what Sean Hannity has requested will be provided to the authorities that can make a difference for the President.

- "For I, the Lord, love justice." (Isaiah 61:8a)

4. Trump Says Homeland Security Official Chad Wolf Will be New Acting DHS Secretary - Newsmax

Chad Wolf, a little-known policy staffer at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), will be the agency's new acting secretary, said President Donald Trump, whose hard-line immigration policies are spearheaded by the DHS.

There have been a spate of departures at the DHS in recent months that have depleted its leadership ranks. The vacancies left the Republican Trump's administration with no confirmed successor to outgoing acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan, whose resignation was announced last month.

"I put in a very good man who's highly respected, and he's acting right now. We'll see where that goes," Trump said when asked by reporters at the White House on Friday if Wolf would be the next DHS secretary. (Read more)

- Lord, we pray for inner strength on a massive scale for Mr. Wolf. Let him not be moved by negative press or hatred that attacks him. We pray that Your wisdom would be his guide in all that he must do. Let him get along well with the President, that there be no division.

- "I will go on in the strength of the Lord God." (Psalm 71:16a)

5. US Judge Blocks Trump's Health Insurance Rule for Immigrants - Newsmax

A federal judge in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday put on hold a Trump administration rule requiring immigrants prove they will have health insurance or can pay for medical care before they can get visas.

U.S. District Judge Michael Simon granted a temporary restraining order that prevents the rule from going into effect Sunday. It's not clear when he will rule on the merits of the case.

Seven U.S. citizens and a nonprofit organization filed the federal lawsuit Wednesday contending the rule would block nearly two-thirds of all prospective legal immigrants.

The lawsuit also said the rule would greatly reduce or eliminate the number of immigrants who enter the United States with family sponsored visas.

"We're very grateful that the court recognized the need to block the health care ban immediately," says Justice Action Center senior litigator Esther Sung, who argued at Saturday's hearing on behalf of the plaintiffs. "The ban would separate families and cut two-thirds of green-card-based immigration starting tonight, were the ban not stopped." (Read more)

- Lord, let Your will be accomplished in this matter. We pray that only those You have chosen to come to America will be able to do so, and that judges will come to understand the President's reasons for his immigration policies rather than automatically block them.

- "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance." (Psalm 33:12)

6. ACLU: Feds are building an America-wide face-surveillance system - WND

(THE REGISTER) The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is suing the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and the Department of Justice (DoJ) in an effort to find out what the US federal government's systems and policies are around facial recognition.

Following a freedom-of-information request in January that Uncle Sam still has not responded to, the ACLU has demanded [PDF] the release of the TLA trio's guidelines and rules regarding what the union terms "face surveillance technology," as well as details of any contracts or pilot programs it has with private companies over the technology.

Specifically, the civil-rights warriors have filed suit in Massachusetts against the Feds, requesting the district court forces the agencies and department to cough up "public records pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act." (Read more)

- Lord, we call upon You to protect Your people against any plans of any government, state or federal, that could destruction of American's civil rights, or instill fear.

- "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)

7. Now government requires 'GOOD REASON' to carry concealed gun - WND

The U.S. Supreme Court is being asked to review a case against Maryland's requirement that applicants for concealed-carry permits provide "good and substantial reasons" to fulfill their request.

Gun-rights groups that have filed a brief in the case, contending the law is unconstitutional, say it could have widespread impact.

The court, said Second Amendment Foundation founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, "could define the parameters of bearing arms outside the home, and that will impact restrictive laws in several states where carry permits or licenses are strictly regulated, which translates to nearly impossible to get." (Read more)

- Lord, we pray that the Supreme Court would take up this case, and make a ruling for the Constitution. We pray for the preservation of every portion of the Bill of Rights.

- "Do not remove the ancient landmark which your fathers have set." (Proverbs 22:28)

8. California's Prop 47 leads to rise in shoplifting, thefts, criminal activity across state - Fox News

In a lighted garage on one of San Francisco's busiest streets, a young man in baggy trousers and messy brown hair pulled down his pants. He had been hiding two pairs of stolen jeans with the tags still on them. He handed them to another man waiting nearby, took some money, pulled up his pants and headed back into another store on Market Street - home to the city's high-end designers and big-chain retail shops.

The incident wasn't a one-off. These brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value.

The decision to downgrade theft of property valued below the arbitrary figure from felony to misdemeanor, together with selective enforcement that focuses on more "serious" crimes, has resulted in thieves knowing they can brazenly shoplift and merchants knowing the police will not respond to their complaints, say critics. (Read more)

- Father, we once again come to You and ask that Your Holy Spirit bring repentance and conviction of sin to California. We pray that the leadership of this state be righteous or removed, and that You will move over the people to rise up and reverse the direction they have been going.

- "The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are a bold as a lion." (Proverbs 28:1)

9. Court opens door for anti-Semitism being taught in public school - WND

A teacher in Texas has been given permission by a judge to, if she chooses, "fill her students' head[s] with hate against Jews," according to a scathing new report from the Clarion Project. The organization is a nonprofit that educates people about radical Islam and its dangers, as well as other ideologies that are extremist.

Its films, seen by some 125 million, expose how Islamists use terror, murder, subjugation, indoctrination, persecution and genocide.

The report documents that a fight in Texas broke out over a teacher's refusal to sign a statement that she opposed the BDS movement against Israel. That's an effort to demand everyone boycott, divest from and sanction against Israel in order to drive it from the face of the earth.

A federal judge ultimately ruled in favor of the teacher, Bahia Amawi, a speech pathologist who had lost her job because she refused to follow state requirements to not support BDS actions. (Read more)

- Lord, it is heartbreaking that this Texas judge is allowing this travesty to continue. We ask for a move of Your Holy Spirit over those who do not understand the dangers of standing against Israel or allowing lies to be disseminated to children.

- "The Lord also will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; the heavens and earth will shake; But the Lord will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel." (Joel 3:16)

10. Midshipmen establish study group for Satanic Temple beliefs at US Naval Academy - Stars and Stripes

Midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy who have beliefs associated with The Satanic Temple now have a study group available to them, according to the military institution.

A space for a study group at the academy, located in Annapolis, Md., was requested by students with "beliefs aligned with those practiced by The Satanic Temple" so they could gather and share their views, according to a statement issued Thursday by Cmdr. Alana Garas, a Naval Academy spokeswoman.

An internal email sent out to the student body Oct. 8 stated "satanic services" would be starting at the academy, Garas said. However, the announcement was not reviewed or approved by the school's command chaplain nor did it represent the U.S. Naval Academy's Command Religious Program, according to Garas. But the students' request was for a space to conduct a study group, not to hold satanic services, according to Garas.

"The USNA Command Religious Program provides for the exercise of diverse beliefs. Arrangements were being made to provide the Midshipmen with a designated place to assemble as chaplains facilitate for the beliefs of all service members, a responsibility outlined by Navy instructions," Garas said in the statement.

The Satanic Temple is a separate organization from the Church of Satan, which was founded in 1966 by Anton Szandor LaVey in San Francisco. The Satanic Temple, an atheist religious organization that is politically active, gained IRS tax-exempt status as a church in May and is headquartered in Salem, Mass. (Read more)

- Lord, You are the One, True Living God. This grieves us. We pray that Your Holy Spirit will come to bring truth into the lives of all who practice such things. Though the military has sanctioned other religions, we ask forgiveness for the foolishness of our leaders.

- "You shall have no other gods before Me." (Exodus 20:3)

The Deep State assault on YOU

There was a vote Thursday by the House of Representatives to formalize the impeachment process and rules and go public with it. All but two Democrats voted for the resolution. No Republicans voted for it. The Democrats are going to make this vote seem like they are finally opening up the process for public scrutiny. But they are not. Don't be fooled by the media narrative. The Democratic Leadership set the rules and voted down all Republican suggestions. They are controlling the witnesses, the information, even down to the editing of the transcripts-think about that-editing what people testified, even controlling who gets to ask the questions. This is by no means a fair and transparent proceeding.

To give you a real indicator of this impeachment process, look at the "deep state," the unelected keepers of the one world order buried deep in the gut of American government. CSPAN covered former CIA Acting Director John McLaughlin praising the "deep state' for its role in impeaching the president. McLaughlin said, "Thank god for the Deep State. Everyone here has seen this progression of diplomats and intelligence officers and White House people trooping up to Capitol Hill right now and these are people doing their duty and responding to a higher call. With all of the people who knew what was going on here, it took an intelligence officer to step forward and say something about it, which was the trigger that unleashed everything else." Special attention should be noted to, "which was the trigger that unleashed everything else."

McLaughlin continued, "This is the institution in the U.S. government with all of its flaws, and it makes mistakes, is institutionally committed to objectivity and to telling the truth. It is one of the few institutions in Washington that is not in a chain of command that makes or implements policy. Its whole job is to speak the truth. Is engraved in marble in the lobby." The truth, however, is however the "deep state" decides to spin it. The intelligence community believes it, not the voters, are the keepers of the Republic. "Assault on Intelligence" is a book written by Michael V. Hayden, former director of the CIA. The book spreads half-truths, leaves out important details, and cites second-and-third-hand information to advance the opinion that Trump is undercutting the intelligence community, and by doing so, he is undermining American democracy.

It is no coincidence that the impeachment juggernaut emanates from the House Intelligence Committee chaired by Adam Schiff (D-CA), who is using the "deep state" as its source. The only version of truth America will hear from this charade is the "deep state's" and leftist Democrat's carefully propagandized narrative, even to the point of editing transcripts. While the Democrats accuse Trump of editing the Ukraine transcript, they are openly passing rules that allow the edit of transcripts. See how they accuse others of exactly what they are doing? It is if our nation is pleading Psalm 94:16 to each of us: "Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?" Don't be asking, "What should I do?" DO SOMETHING. Get with others. Talk about it. Speak boldly. Call. Be vocal and active.

A Special Note to our readers:

Last week, our Lord revealed the exact location of the "life" of the Deep State -- an area in the District called FOGGY BOTTOM. This area is adjacent to the State Department; and its players feel that they are the "real government" - in place permanently to give "stability" to our nation, as opposed to the "political appointees" that come and go with different administrations.

This mindset is, of course, a LIE. The stability of our nation rests upon the words of the Constitution, which cannot be abrogated.

Please join us now as we pray over this revelation:

- Father God, we bring before You all who are allied with the agendas of the Deep State. Forgive them, Lord, we pray, for they are blind to the TRUTH of who we are as Americans, and of the liberties we enjoy as a free people.

Father God, day after day, they are calling good, evil and evil, good. We ask for their deliverance by Your mighty hand, in Jesus name, amen.

- "The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire." (Matthew 3:10)

"The people who walk in darkness have seen a great light." (Isaiah 9:2)

Election Updates

Election Updates:

Two Articles to Keep You Thinking, and Praying!

1. Socialists in Your 'Hood: List of 44 DSA-Endorsed Candidates for Nov. 5 Local Elections - Epoch Times

The United States' largest Marxist organization, the 56,000-member Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), is running at least 44 endorsed candidates in 20 states for the Nov. 5 local elections.

Most are running as Democrats, but some are nonpartisan or independent. While most will fail, the DSA will use their campaigns to recruit more members and spread their message. Those who succeed will join dozens of comrades already in office across the country in funneling taxpayers' money into socialist projects, employing their comrades, and spreading socialist propaganda with the prestige of their elected office.

It must be remembered that the DSA is an alliance of organizations, which includes several pro-China groups such as the Communist Party USA, Liberation Road, and Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism. The DSA also incorporates Stalinists from the League of Revolutionaries for a New America and Trotskyists from Solidarity and the recently defunct International Socialist Organization.

The DSA has close ties to several European and Latin American Marxist-Leninist parties and, despite its constant denials, is a de facto communist party.

In several cities, the DSA has more than a thousand members. Every DSA-endorsed candidate can expect dozens or even hundreds of DSA volunteers to hold campaign office, to door-knock, to phone-bank, and to donate. After the primaries are settled, candidates in key winnable races may even expect nationwide DSA support.

This is exactly how 29-year-old bartender Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beat the fourth-ranked Democrat in the House of Representatives, and first-time candidate comrade Lee J. Carter beat the senior Republican in the Virginia state legislature. In many races, a DSA endorsement can greatly improve one's chances of victory.

2. Pray and vote - (Author unknown)

With all of the country's attention on 2020, it's easy to forget that there are other major elections less than 24 hours away! Tuesday, a big swath of the country will be heading to the polls to decide a slew of key races -- from governor on down to school board. And any of them could make a life-or-death difference for the unborn, what your kids learn at school, the kind of freedom you have to practice your faith, and so much more.

For three states -- Kentucky, Louisiana, and Mississippi -- Tuesday is about as important as it gets. New governors, lieutenant governors, and attorneys general seats are all up for grabs. And if you're wondering how much that matters, just think back to earlier this year with the infanticide debate. In Virginia and New Jersey, the stakes are just as high, with lots of meaningful local elections like mayor, city council, and school board. If you homeschool or send your kids to private school, let me tell you: your school board vote still matters. FRC's Cathy Ruse found that out for herself in Fairfax County, Virginia.

"My kids go to Catholic schools, and that was the center of our universe. I never focused [on our public schools] until I heard that the Fairfax County School Board voted to let boys into the girls' bathrooms. The vote was 10-1. Was there only one sane person on the Fairfax County School Board? I had to find out.

So I began attending school board meetings. And there I saw moms and dads begging the school board to stop threatening their child's privacy and safety in intimate spaces and on the sports field. They pleaded with the board to stop the pornographic reading assignments. They tearfully asked board members to respect their family's religious beliefs.

These were my neighbors, fighting to stop their school board from playing sex politics with their children. This shouldn't happen anywhere in America. I resolved that it wasn't going to happen in my county, on my watch, without a fight." (Read more)

Classic Hymns


"Thy name is as ointment poured forth." (Song of Solomon 1:3)


1 How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
in a believer's ear!
It soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds,
and drives away our fear.

2 It makes the wounded spirit whole
and calms the troubled breast;
'tis manna to the hungry soul,
and to the weary, rest.

3 O Jesus, shepherd, guardian, friend,
my Prophet, Priest, and King,
my Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
accept the praise I bring.

4 How weak the effort of my heart,
how cold my warmest thought;
but when I see you as you are,
I'll praise you as I ought.

5 Till then I would your love proclaim
with every fleeting breath;
and may the music of your name
refresh my soul in death.

Signs and Wonders


One of the biggest astronomy events of the year is just one week away: The Transit on Mercury. On Monday, Nov 11th, Mercury will pass directly in front the sun. The rare transit begins at 12:35 UT (7:35 am EST) and lasts for almost six hours. Mercury's tiny form-jet black and perfectly round-will glide slowly across the solar disk.

People in every continent except Australia can see at least a portion of the crossing. In the USA, the best place to be is on the Atlantic coast, where the entire transit will be visible. On the Pacific coast the transit will already be in progress at sunrise.
Warning! Do not stare at the sun during the transit. Mercury covers only a tiny fraction of the solar disk, so the sun remains as bright as ever. Eye damage can occur.
Transits of Mercury occur only 13 times each century. The next one won't occur until Nov. 13, 2032. Don't miss this unusual event!

1. Kanye West's Sunday Service had 'over 1,000' commit their lives to Christ: 'New wave of revival' - Fox News

A Louisiana pastor praised Kanye West's last-minute "Sunday Service," where "over 1,000" people raised their hands to commit their lives to Christ on Friday, calling it a "new wave of revival."

West opened up his "Sunday Service," which is not always held on Sunday, to the public a few months ago, traveling across the country to hold gospel services and perform songs from his new album, "Jesus is King." Curvine Brewington, a pastor at Crossroads Church in Lafayette, attended Friday's service with his wife. The outdoor service was held at Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, La.

"Tonight, worship was lifted, the name of Christ was exalted, the Word of God was preached, a multitude prayed together, the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, and an opportunity to respond was given," Brewington wrote on Friday. "In a crowd of 6,000, people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, I witnessed over 1,000 people respond to The Gospel by raising their hands to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior!"

2. Ministry Offers Free Bibles to Kanye Fans after New Album Caused 'Jesus' to Trend on Google - Christian headlines

Kanye West's new faith-centric album has sparked an increased interest in Christianity - and a well-known ministry is providing free tools to unbelievers. The American Bible Society says it is offering free Bibles to Kanye's fans who fill out a form on the organization's website. The group got the idea from Google data that showed a spike in searches for information about Christianity the week the album was released.

Kanye released his latest album, Jesus Is King, last Friday. "Kanye West's album has had an immediate effect on the current news cycle. 'Jesus is King' was a trending internet search last week with over 1 million queries on Google alone," John Farquhar Plake, director of ministry intelligence at American Bible Society, said in a press release.

- Lord, we thank You for this man's conversion, and ask You to protect him from those who would tear him down. We pray that every Bible given out will bring forth good fruit and result in many coming to the Kingdom of God.

About CHPP

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]


Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes all who wish to pray for our leaders to join us in prayer for our nation. You may sign up to receive our alerts by sending an email to us at CHPP1994@gmail.com requesting that your name be added to our list of subscribers.
