Impeachment Updates:

An introduction

Dear Prayer Partners,

Today the battle seems to be raging for the destiny of President Donald J. Trump, and for the future of our very nation.

Note we say "seems to be raging" for the TRUTH is the exact opposite of what we see!

Our God still sits in the heavens and LAUGHS at the wicked plans of our enemies; and in our spirit, we must laugh with Him.

First things first:

As this cast of characters continues to march across our headlines - members of Congress and various "witnesses" - we are being shown those who need to be delivered out of darkness into the Kingdom of His light and glory. Let's continue to ask our Lord to forgive the wicked, and to cry out for their souls to be delivered unto Him. Amen.

You will find below a series of headlines and/or commentaries to help us know where we are now in this "impeachment" process, followed by several prayer strategies to pursue. Finally, at the end of this Special Alert, you will see how you can take action in this matter, to contact your own member of Congress and express your own opinion about these hearings.
Thank you, everyone, for praying in agreement for the needs expressed below.

News the President Wants You to See!

1. Adam Schiff is Wasting the Nation's Time with Impeachment Hearings - New York Post

In their first day of public impeachment hearings, Democrats made clear just how weak their case is," the New York Post editorial board writes.

In mostly dull, uneventful testimony yesterday, Democrats' "star" witnesses openly complained about policy decisions they disliked. "Sorry, but it's not their place to second-guess Trump or his policies. The president sets foreign policy, not they."

Most revealing: Rather than offer any actual evidence at all, "they merely cited third- and fourth-hand rumors. Neither man ever had direct contact with the president." (Read more)

2. When impeachment proof falls short, Democrats shift the goal posts: Rep. Andy Biggs - USA Today

Just like with the left's two-year Russia collusion chase, the facts do not match Democrats' narrative. "Now, Democrats have moved from their earlier charge of 'quid pro quo' to wild allegations of 'abuse of power,' 'extortion' and 'bribery.' When the proof falls short, they continue to shift the goal posts from one unsubstantiated allegation to another," Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) writes in USA Today. (Read more)

3. Locke and Paulsen: Trade deal between US, Mexico and Canada carries big benefits - Congress should approve it - Fox News

"While Washington is often dominated by partisan gridlock, Congress can put politics aside and improve the everyday lives of Americans by approving the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), a trade deal that would replace the outdated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)." This deal "will become the new gold standard against which all future trade deals are measured," former Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN) and Gary Locke write for Fox News. (Read more)

House Holds First Public Impeachment Hearing

House Holds First Public Impeachment Hearing

The House of Representatives on Wednesday held its first public hearings on the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump. House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is the one leading the impeachment hearing, and he issued a lengthy statement, detailing the Democrats' allegations against Trump. "If we find the president of the United States abused his power and invited foreign interference in our elections " or has engaged in quid pro quo actions with Ukraine "is this what Americans should now expect from their president?" he asked during the hearing.
House Intelligence ranking member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said that Democrats "engaged in a last-ditch effort" to paint Trump as a "Russian agent," which he said was an attempt on their part to overturn the 2016 election results. Nunes suggested that impeachment inquiry was a continuation of the "Russian hoax." "This is a carefully orchestrated media smear campaign," Nunes said.

David Nunes' Fiery Opening Statement

WATCH: Devin Nunes Devastates Schiff, Democrats With Fiery Opening Statement; Witnesses in Trump-Ukraine Impeachment Effort Just Torched the Democrats' Narrative

During the first public impeachment inquiry hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday morning, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes did not hold anything back and slammed Democrats for damaging the country. He also went after the media and again called on Hunter Biden to testify about allegations of corruption in Ukraine.

"In a July open hearing of this committing following the publication of the Mueller report, the Democrats engaged in a last-ditch effort to convince the American people President Trump is a Russia agent. That hearing was the pitiful finally of a three-year-long effort by the Democrats, the corrupt media, and partisan bureaucrats to overturn the results of the 2016 election. After the spectacular implosion of their Russia hoax on July 24...on July 25th, they turned on a dime and now claim the real malfeasance is the Republicans dealings with Ukraine," Nunes said.
"In the blink of an eye, we are asked to simply forget about Democrats on this Committee falsely claiming they had more than circumstantial evidence of collusion between President Trump and Russians. We should forget about them reading fabrications of Trump, Russia collusion from the Steele dossier into the congressional record. We should also forget about them trying to obtain nude pictures of Trump from Russian pranksters who pretended to be Ukrainian officials. We should forget about them leaking a false story to CNN while he was still testifying to our Committee claiming Donald Trump Jr. was colluding with Wikileaks. And forget about countless other deceptions large and small that make them the last people on earth with the credibility to hurl more preposterous accusations against their political opponents."
"And yet here we are," he continued. "This is a carefully orchestrated media smear campaign."

Nunes also called out Schiff for refusing to bring relevant Republican witnesses, including the "whistleblower" who kicked off the impeachment inquiry process, to testify.

Prayer Request:

Lift up all who are fighting on behalf of the truth as these hearings continue. Ask our Lord to release His angelic host to rest upon these members, as well as their own loved ones and staff, as these hearings continue.

" . . . he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways . . ." (Psalm 91:11)

Now for the noise

The Daily Jot

Now for the noise

The hill is alive with the sounds of impeachment. Everywhere you turn, except sports stations, you're going to hear the clanging cymbals of this analyst or that, this so-called journalist or that, this deep-stater or that, pontificating about the latest testimony. Just remember: this hearing is staged and controlled to the extent to turn American public opinion against the president. This is a historic moment. A political coup attempt is in play. This is something Americans should speak out against and stand against on principal, not politics. The deep state, non-elected bureaucrats and socialists should not be able to remove a president for getting in their way no matter the political party. This is about your country.

The New York Post editorial board calls the hearings a "farce," and warns: "[House Speaker] Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff, the Intelligence Committee chairman, have tried to make the coming hearings as scripted as possible: They're only calling witnesses who've already testified in secret, or in some cases just releasing transcripts of that testimony. Indeed, Democrats now refuse to have the whistleblower testify, even in secret - though Schiff at first publicly called for just that. Every sign is that he changed his mind because cross-examination is likely to reveal him to be a highly partisan Trump-hater, and might even suggest he colluded with Democrats across Washington to launch this fast-track impeachment."

Constitutional Attorney Jenna Ellis Rives wrote in The Hill: "The Democrats are abusing the power of impeachment and, if they are allowed to move forward, they are not only setting a terrible precedent that impeachment can be wielded as a political weapon that it was never intended to be, but also attacking the Constitution and undermining the rule of law." Rives concludes, "Schiff and Pelosi are not interested in real demonstrations of innocence or guilt. Their only interest is staging a political coup against their adversaries. But this is even bigger than the president. This is an attempt to overthrow the federal government from the inside." The argument here is not about President Trump. It boils down to overthrowing elected government.
Dating back to the infamous "Pee Dossier," the secret FISA Court spy authorization, and the subsequent actions by the Democratic National Committee, the previous president and the deep state operatives within the State Department, CIA, FBI, NSA, DHS and so on, there has been a concerted effort to frustrate, disrupt and remove this president. Why? Because Americans elected someone who stood in the way of a socialist takeover the Democrats, some establishment Republicans, and deep state had so long and carefully planned. This is not theory. You can track the facts. Hollywood, the mainstream media, and politicians all have colluded to bring about this moment in history that tests not only the Constitutional intent of impeachment, but also the will of the people to remain free.

Who knows better about governing themselves? Unelected administrative bureaucrats, spies, deep state agents, one-world government advocates, Marxists, or you? The struggle here is between Marxism in its various forms and LIBERTY. You need to know this and understand it. If it goes the way the Marxists want, they will hold or usurp the White House and both houses of Congress as well as the unconstitutional administrative positions in the government bureaucracy. AND those who disagree with them on moral issues and issues of religious freedom will be shut out of the public square. I have been writing about this for over a decade. The Daily Jot is equipping you with information. Please stand against this travesty. Where to start: Tell everyone you know. Be an Ephesians 6:18 person and "speak boldly as I ought to speak." Make some noise.

Impeachment Goes Public


With the televised hearings on impeachment, it is imperative that we as the body of Christ, be in prayer about this divisive process that is happening in our nation. We invite you to pray in unison as the process unfolds.

We offer four points of prayer to pray over this process:
. PRAISE God that He has ultimate victory over the darkness. (Jude 1:25)

2. PRAY FOR EACH PERSON ON THE WITNESS LIST BY NAME-praying for truthful testimony, to promote and follow honest processes, and for protection from any assignment of the Enemy. (Prv 12:22)

3. PRAY THE OPPOSITE. Shift the atmosphere of these contentious and unctuous impeachment activities. Pray for truth where there is deception. Pray for revelation where there is concealment. Pray for protection where there is threat. (Eph 5:6-11)

4. ASK FOR GOD'S PURPOSES TO BE FULFILLED in our nation, and that any plan to derail them through political maneuvering, subterfuge, or plotting would be thwarted. (Is 46:10)

5. Pray for honest, clear, and complete testimony. Pray that they would be permitted to answer any and all pertinent questions from all sides. Pray that each would speak truthfully and seek to do what is right. (Prv 6:16-19)
> > > Those who gave testimony yesterday were: William Taylor, George Kent, and on Friday of this week, Marie Yovanovich. Pray for the members of the House Intelligence Committee as they listen and guide the process. Pray for Chairman Adam Schiff as he directs this live broadcast with hopes to bring impeachment and take down the President. Pray for the Miniority Leader Devin Nunes, who has been outspoken about the abuses in the procedures.
- Father God, Lord of all, we praise You because You are victorious over all darkness.

- " . . . to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen." (Jude 1:25)

Tale Action with IFA!




In all the frenzy surrounding the impeachment, we, as intercessors, have a very important assignment that has shifted this week. Public, open hearings on impeachment begin in the House of Representatives Wednesday, November 13, 2019.

Our prayers about this are a critical part of the process and may have an important impact on the outcome.

I am calling on you, as a member of a core group of action-takers within IFA, to do two things:

1. Sound off to your elected official who has a part in the impeachment process and
2. Pray through our new impeachment hearing prayer guide.

First, send your message. As the Bible commands, we are commanded to pray for the men and women in authority over us, so that we can live our lives in peace and quiet. (1 Timothy 2:1-2) Pray for the leaders of the House and for your Representative and send a message to them that you are praying for them.

It's easy to do, just use our sample message on the right or edit it to reflect the particular position of your Representative. Then click send. It's that easy. [GO HERE.]
Once that is complete, use this link to the prayer guide this week during the hearings. We invite you to take further action by sharing this prayer guide with others--there is power in unified prayer.

Thank you for your faithful prayer and action for our nation!

I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

11 "All who rage against you

you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the Lord your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you. Stages Nationwide Rallies

Alert! Stages Nationwide Rallies

Calling for the impeachment and removal of President Trump from office

It is no secret that the left is making a very aggressive attempt to rally for impeachment. Rallies are being held through out the nation to encourage a vote for impeachment on the night before the vote. It is important that we sound our voices as well. We need to contact our representatives and let them know our position. We especially need to thank those who are standing for righteousness. By clicking on the link below and then clicking the link to the map, you can see where the events are being held in your area and state. To date there are 251 events scheduled.

(For example) In Pennsylvania the following locations are planning events:

Lancaster, York, Harrisburg, Allentown. Langhorne, Norristown, West Chester, Philadelphia, Beaver, Greensburg and two in Pittsburgh.

I recommend that we pray over these areas and release the Shalom of God before the rallies occur as we continue to stay on the wall for our President and nation, not the least of which to minimize violence as the volatility increases.

Intercessory Insight

Intercessory Insight:

A word received from one of our prayer partners in the State of Texas

Based upon the Book of Acts:


Acts 27 seems to fit. Because godly advice wasn't taken, the ship of state has been tossed about and had to just go with the "contrary winds" (vs. 4). Now we are "exceedingly tempest-tossed" (vs. 18). A word from God to the godly intercessor is what is needed (vs. 21). We must "take heart" (vs. 25) because we will "run aground (vs. 26). It's all hands on deck in prayer (vs.29) and "cut away" what we think with our own fleshy thinking will save us (vs. 32). It's time to "take nourishment" and give thanks (vs. 34-36). Communion? Continue to lighten what we've been relying on (vs. 38) until all that's left is our reliance on God. In time, the front of the ship (the prow - what led this country into being), will be saved and those who cannot swim (in the spiritual waters) or are not strong enough in the Lord to handle the waves of adversity will be able to use parts of our beginnings to get to safety (vs. 41-44). In the meantime, the back end of the ship of state (the stern) will be "broken up by the violence" of the political and spiritual waves (vs. 41). When it's all over, look for signs, wonders and provision (Acts 28:1-10).

Legislators Must Legislate Righteously!

Shalom Praying Friends,

This letter today is shorter but the prayers are longer..Today was the first day of actual Impeachment Inquiry proceedings against the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. I did not watch TV since I don't have one, but I did an awful lot of praying with the Holy Spirit. I can't help but wonder what other nations must be thinking about the proceedings that are being played out in the public media. As a prayer strategy I do believe it is paramount that we pray according to scripture and pray for the Lord's will to be done in these proceedings.

I do believe we have the opportunity to make a difference in our nation through our prayers and declarations. It causes frustration when we start swallowing the hatred being released in the main stream media and assume that what they are saying is true. The biggest mistake we can make I believe is to think our prayers are meaningless and there is more of the enemy than there is of us. Feeling Impotent can rob you of the Victory that YHWH promises us in our daily life when we adhere to His Word.

I'm keeping it simple in order to release these prayers.
