On Monday, well-known activist and author Ayaan Hirsi Ali made this argument Monday at the National Press Club as security guards stood in the back of the ballroom.

The Daily Brief

1. A) NYPD Issues Threat Note After Va. Arrest - Fox News

The arrest Wednesday of a Virginia "Moslem" who thought he was aiding an Al Qaeda cult attack on the Washington, D.C., transit system is further proof that "radical jihadists" are inside the United States, and it's a reminder to cities around the country that ground transportation is still a "highly attractive" target for terrorists, according to a New York Police Department threat assessment obtained by Fox News.

B) Skywest Plane Makes Emergency Landing After Reported Bomb Threat - Fox News

Officials say a commuter jet from Montana is being searched in Salt Lake City after a telephone threat of an explosive on board.

Delta Airlines issued a statement saying Skywest flight 4654 landed just before 8 a.m. Thursday at Salt Lake City International Airport, and all passengers were safely taken off the aircraft.

- Father, we thank You that no one has been injured in these incidents. We ask that You continue to reveal hidden secrets and the plans of the enemy.

2. A) Obama Restores the 'Creator' to His Recitation of the Declaration of Independence -

On the campaign trail for Democrats in recent days, Obama said the word "Creator" when quoting the Declaration of Independence, although he omitted the word in several earlier speeches this year. The addition of "Creator" came after press reports noted the omission in Obama's earlier speeches.

B) Obama Suggests His Stance on Gay Marriage Could 'Evolve' - Fox News

Obama suggested Wednesday that his opposition to gay marriage is not set in stone, telling a group of bloggers he's thought a lot about the issue as more and more states expand the definition of marriage.

Obama stopped short of reversing his public stance, which so far has been in support of civil unions only. But he said pointedly that attitudes, including his, change.

- Father, we pray that truth prevail over everything Obama says, so that deception will not sway the American people. Let our nation not be deceived into thinking something is ok when it is not. We ask for a full revelation of Your truth to Obama so that he moves from a lack of understanding to the knowledge of Your Word in his heart.

- "Because I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He." (Deuteronomy 32:3,4)

3. Court Overturns AZ's Proof of Citizenship Requirement to Vote - AOL News

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned Arizona's requirement that people show proof of citizenship to register to vote. The split decision by a three-judge panel determined that the requirement to show proof of citizenship - passed by voters in 2004 - is not consistent with the National Voter Registration Act.

- Lord, we are dismayed at this latest turn of events in several states to allow non-citizens the right to vote. Why should a non-citizen vote in an American election except to skew the results? We pray that You will intervene with the courts to see an interpretation of the law that follows both legal and Biblical precepts.

- "Remember, O Lord, what is come upon us: consider and behold our reproach. Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens." (Lamentations 5:1-2)

B) Clinton is sitting this one out - AP

Hillary Clinton never met a political battle she didn't like. Until now.

- Lord, as Obama and Mrs. Clinton both will be gone at the same time, we wonder if there is a connection. We pray for Your power and protection over our nation from any plans of the enemy. If they are leaving town because they are afraid of the election results, then we ask for transformation of their hearts to know the fear of the Living God.

- "Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth: unite my heart to fear Your Name." (Psalm 86:11)

5. After Midterm Elections, Congress Faces Likely Legislative Gridlock - Fox News

No matter which party comes out on top in next week's midterm elections, getting legislation through the next Congress will be an uphill battle at best and virtually impossible at worst.

Regardless of who wins the majority next week, more pratfalls than policies may emerge out of the 112th Congress, observers warn.

"Both parties don't like to work with each other. We keep seeing that over and over," said Julian Zelizer, a Princeton University professor of history and congressional expert. "It's like Lucy and Charlie Brown with the football."

- Father, our governmental system requires the ability to come to an agreement. We take authority over the spirit of division, and ask that You break the hatred that would cause our Congress to be dysfunctional. We pray for Your wisdom to begin to cause every legislator to seek Your Face for the issues they face.

- "Hatred stirs up strife " (Proverbs 10:12a)

6. Up to $1 Billion in U.S. Aid Winds Up In Taliban Coffers - Fox News

As much as $1 billion in U.S. aid has been diverted from programs meant to stabilize Afghanistan and has wound up in the hands of the Taliban and other insurgency groups, war analysts and government auditors say.

- Lord, this is an unacceptable situation! We pray that You will reveal how this happened and cut off the flow of funds to the enemy. Let every hidden secret be shown and all evil destroyed.

- "But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it." (Proverbs 2:22)

PRAY for Indonesia: Earthquake-Tsunami-Volcano

Indonesia was hit by three violent natural disasters in just two days - an earthquake on Monday (October 25, 2010), a tsunami generated by the quake, and on Tuesday, the eruption of a volcano. The death toll is currently in the hundreds and is expected to rise.

The nation of Indonesia - a chain of more than 17,000 islands - is considered a "geological restless" area because of its location along a deep trench in the ocean where two of the Earth's plates meet. "Friction between the plates heats rock to the melting point, supplying the magma that wells up to form the volcanoes that dot the islands - and triggering earthquakes."

That is what happened on Monday, October 25, 2010. As the plates shifted off the west coast of Sumatra, a 7.7 earthquake was generated. This, in turn, created a 10-foot tsunami (tidal wave) that killed more than 100 people. Hours later, Sumatra's Mt. Merapi erupted, killing at least 18 people. Experts say this may be followed by more small eruptions or even one violent eruption.

Some scientists believe Monday's quake may have helped to ease the strain that has been mounting between the two deep-ocean plates. Others, however, are convinced that another larger earthquake (8.5 or above) could occur sometime in the near future.


the Lord to comfort all those who have lost loved ones and homes in this series of tragic events. (The Bible, Psalm 23:4)

these disasters to be used to turn the eyes, minds and hearts of the people of Indonesia away from Islam and toward the salvation available in Jesus Christ. (The Bible, II Corinthians 4:4)

Christian humanitarian agencies to provide food, clean water, shelter, medicine, and the Gospel to those who have been affected by the earthquake, tsunami and volcano. (The Bible, Proverbs 29:7)

the light of Jesus Christ to shine brightly into this dark region. Pray for enemy strongholds to be toppled and for those in bondage to terrorism and false religions to be set free. (The Bible, Colossians 1:13)

the Kingdom of God to come to Indonesia in not only word, but in great power. (The Bible, I Corinthians 4:20)

About George Soros

A Note from a Reader

Yesterday, we prayed over one headline from the Los Angeles Times, regarding George Soros. One of our friends then sent in the message, below . . .

Multibillionaire investor George Soros backs Legalizing Marijuana - LA Times

George Soros, the multibillionaire investor who helped bankroll three initiatives to change drug laws in California, endorsed the marijuana legalization initiative Monday and plans to make a major financial contribution to the campaign.

Sara - Re: George Soros using his wealth for evil: This week I taught on the Trespass Offering against God and Man. This sin of George Soros to use his money to promote evil would be a trespass sin. According to the Word (Lev. 5:16), the one who sins against God and/or Man must return full restitution plus 20% or 1/5th. I am calling in to the Kingdom a full restitution of all the money Soros has used for evil plus 20%.

Thank you, Carolyn!

We agree!!

Terrorist Plot Thwarted

Four Convicted of Homegrown Terrorist Plot

Four men were convicted by a federal court jury in Manhattan on Monday for scheming to fire heat-seeking missiles at military transport planes and bomb a Bronx synagogue and Jewish community center. The verdict took eight days of deliberation, ending a case that defense lawyers said "crossed the line of entrapment." The defendants - Onta Williams, Laguerre Payen, James Cromitie and David Williams IV - were arrested in May 2009 after collaborating for 11 months with Shahed Hussain, an F.B.I. informer posing as a member of the Pakistan-based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammad.

- Give thanks for prevention of homegrown terrorist plots. Pray for authorities to discern what threats are real.

- "My companion attacks his friends; he violates his covenant. His speech is smooth as butter, yet war is in his heart; his words are more soothing than oil, yet they are drawn swords." (Psalm 55:20-21) (Source: Intercessors for America)

Supreme Court News

Court to Rule on Two First Amendment Cases

First, Schwarzenegger v. Entertainment will be heard on Tuesday (Nov. 2), concerning California's attempt to block the sale or rental of violent video games to minors. In 2005, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger imposed a fine of up to $1000 for violators who make graphic content such as Grand Theft Auto Vice City and Duke Nukem 3D (depicting characters being killed, maimed and dismembered) available to those under age 18, arguing that exposure can lead to aggressive behavior and psychological harm.

Second, Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization v. Winn will be heard next Wednesday (Nov. 3), over an Arizona law that allows residents to designate a portion of their taxes to non-profit school tuition programs, most of which is given to religious schools. Tens of millions of dollars in contributions have caused a group of taxpayers to question whether or not the Arizona tax system is indirectly engaging in religious discrimination and violating the First Amendment's Establishment Clause by permitting schools to select students for scholarships on the basis of religion.

- Pray for the youth of America, that they would grow up in a country where there would be protection from violence and not the celebration of it. Pray for an accurate interpretation of the First Amendment and the "establishment clause."

- "Do not accuse a man for no reason- when he has done you no harm. Do not envy a violent man or choose any of his ways." (Proverbs 3:30-31) (Source: Intercessors for America)

Election News

Midterm Elections Fast Approaching

Change is coming to Capitol Hill. The questions are how much change, and of what kind.

Republicans seem all but guaranteed to take control of the House of Representatives, but political analysts say it's much less likely that they will be able to gain control of the Senate also. If those predictions come true, it will be the first time since the 1930 election that the House has changed hands without the Senate following suit

At least 90 Democrat-controlled seats in the House are up for grabs in this election, with only nine GOP-controlled seats in a tossup. Republicans need to gain at least 39 seats to get a majority in the House. Only five Senate slots are considered a tossup, all of which the GOP would likely need to win in order to pick up the 10 seats necessary for a Senate majority.

Early voting has begun in many places, and reports from Nevada indicate that some voters found that Harry Reid's name was pre-selected on the electronic voting machines, raising concerns of glitches or fraud.

Candidates from both parties have shattered spending records in this year's campaigns, totaling nearly $2 billion-or about $4 million per congressional seat up for grabs.

Politics Daily has a breakdown of which races to watch in the next week.

- Pray for godly candidates to be granted favor, resources, campaign workers and objective media coverage. Pray for voting machines to tally votes correctly, and against any attempts to manipulate the elections through fraud or other schemes.

- Intercede for mercy and good government for this election season - that voters would take the time to examine candidates, positions and issues on the basis of truth, virtue, character and conscience.

- "The LORD abhors dishonest scales, but accurate weights are his delight. For lack of guidance a nation falls, but many advisers make victory sure." (Proverbs 11:1, 14)

Election Prayers


(Part Three of Four)

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance." (Ps. 33:12)

9. Pray that the candidates seek the Will and the Ways of God through prayer and Godly wisdom, knowledge, and understanding by adhering to the Word of God.

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." (Romans 12:2)

10. Pray that the Christian candidates not compromise themselves, their state or the nation with the world, but maintains their integrity as befits a believer in Jesus.

"Far be it from me that I should say you are right; Till I die I will not put away my integrity from me. My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go; My heart shall not reproach me as long as I live." (Job 27:5, 6 )

11. Pray for the candidate's families, their staffs, workers and all involved in their campaigns. Pray health, safety, and protection over them. Pray for their strength and good judgment.

"And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all." (Acts 3:16)

12. Father God, We ask You to Hear Our Prayers and Heed our Cries For This Nation.

"Daniel answered and said: " Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. 21 And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. 22 He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him. " (Daniel 2:20-22)

51 Hours of Nonstop WORSHIP on Capitol Hill Begins Today!

Global Day of Worship Sponsors "The Shift" on the Hill!

It is a movement of worship and adoration of Jesus that brings hope, unity and His kingdom on earth. We can worship Jesus through solemn expressions of love or loud and joyful celebration.

Lea Carawan, Executive Director of the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation will open in prayer for The Shift, a 51 hour non-stop worship event on Capitol Hill. This event coordinates 50 hours of worship across denominations, organizations, and streams.

John 12:32 But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself."

Worship teams from around DC, Virginia, MD, Penn and beyond will participate in this event. It is not focused on a large gathering or venue but simply on an audience of one, our Lord Jesus. Located strategically across the street from The Supreme Court and overlooking The Capitol, we will be declaring God's goodness over our nation as we worship.
