The Daily Brief - Wednesday, September 23, 2009

"And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, "Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe." (Revelation 14: 15)


We are asking all of you to join us, beginning tomorrow, entering into a three-day period of prayer and fasting for the release of the captives of Islam.

It is anticipated that as many as 50,000 Moslems will join forces on Friday on Capitol Hill, with the slogan, "It's Our Time."

We agree!! It IS "their time" to come to the saving knowledge of our Lord, and to enter into His harvest field.

"Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? " (Isaiah 58:6)

ALSO: Please note that Lou Engle will also be providing a live audio feed during tomorrow night's conference call, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Lou's website is:

The Daily Brief

1. Obama, Netanyahu, Abbas Meet Today at U.N. - Worthy News

Obama will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjaimin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in trying to initiate the peace process in the Middle East.

- Father, we ask that all the powers that prevail against the Word of God regarding the Middle East be defeated and brought to naught. The resistance of man is no match against the Lord God of Israel. In Jesus Name.

- "The Lord did not set His love upon Israel, nor choose you, because you were more in number than any people; for you were the fewest of all people; But because the Lord loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He had sworn unto your fathers, has the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharoah king of Egypt." (Deuteronomy 7:7-8)

2. Obama Chairs U.N. Security Council - Worthy News

Obama will become the first American president to chair its 15-member Security Council. He is expected to push a UN nonproliferation resolution which is designed to bring all nations into a binding agreement. In the resolution it calls for the right of all states to pursue peaceful nuclear energy -- including Iran. It also calls for all states to sign Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) agreement. This is key because Israel is one of four nations that still has not signed the agreement and understandably so, since the UN is so biased against the Jewish state.

- Father, we ask that any resolutions that are filled with hidden deceit and lies be exposed for what they are. God, oversee the signing of these agreements and destroy any unity that would ultimately bring destruction to the very states that sign them. In Jesus Name.

- "And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High God, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions and powers shall serve and obey God." (Daniel 7:27)

3. G-20 Meets on Friday in Pittsburgh - Worthy News

A G-20 economic summit representing 85% of the world's economy will be led by Obama in Pittsburgh.

- Father God, we ask that you dispatch a heavenly host of angels to be in the midst of the G-20 summit meeting where the world's economy is the main focus and decisions will be made by men who are at the helm and presume to rule the world. Weaken all voices that speak out against God's plans and purposes for the outcome that will affect every nation, every people and will ultimately bring relief or destruction. Our world is Your creation and it is You who sit on Your throne in heaven. It is Your voice that will rule. All things are in Your control and we thank You for bringing everything and everyone at this meeting under the powerful hand of God. In Jesus Name.

- "I make a decree, That in every dominion of God's kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of heaven; for He is the living God and steadfast forever, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall be even unto the end." (Daniel 6:26)

4. Moslems Gather for Prayer at the Capitol - Worthy News

Meanwhile, on September 25th in Washington D.C. Muslims will be gathering for their first ever "prayer meeting" where there are expected to be up to 50,000 in attendance.

- Lord God, we again ask that You send myriads of holy angels around all the 50,000 Muslims expected to be having their prayer meeting at the Capitol. Send the Holy Spirit to hover above all their heads and the blood of Jesus to be on the land under their feet. Move by Your mighty power all over the D.C. area and reveal to every person just how strong and mighty is our God. In Jesus Name.

- "Then Asa called to the LORD his God and said, "LORD, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, O LORD our God, for we rely on you, and in your name we have come against this vast army. O LORD, you are our God; do not let man prevail against you." (2 Chron. 14:11)

- "Listen to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin. The LORD is with you when you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you. For a long time Israel was without the true God, without a priest to teach and without the law. But in their distress they turned to the LORD, the God of Israel, and sought him, and he was found by them. But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded." (2 Chron. 15:2)

The Good News Corner

Life Advocates to Line Streets across America

Thousands of life advocates plan to unite in silent prayer and reflection Oct. 4 during the 22nd annual Life Chain. They will line the streets of America for about an hour, holding pre-printed pro-life signs and seeking God's forgiveness and intervention.

Last year, the Life Chain stretched across more than 1,400 cities.

"Life Chain has been a first step into pro-life activism for a few million participants," Life Chain Director Royce Dunn wrote to supporters. "Some of them now lead local ministries." (CitizenLink)
