The Daily Brief

1. Fukushima 2013: Situation "Getting Worse" - Global Research

The first thing to know about the danger from the radioactive mass remaining on site in the three reactors that melted down at Fukushima is that nobody knows how much radioactive material there is, nobody knows how much uranium and plutonium it contains, and nobody knows how to make it safe -- so no one knows how great the continuing danger is.

- Lord, we pray for wisdom and understanding on what to do about the radioactive material. We stand in the gap for protection over the people in possible radioactive areas. We pray for those who don't know You to become believers. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

- And these signs shall follow them that believe. In my name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (Mark 16: 17-18)

2. US points finger, but Syria denies Israel involved in arms depot strike
- Times of Israel

Syrian officials on Saturday denied reports that Israel had been behind an attack on an arms depot in Latakia a week ago. The denial followed the weekend confirmation by three unidentified US officials that Israeli warplanes had targeted advanced Russian-made anti-ship missiles in the coastal area on July 5.

- Lord, we pray for clarity to the confusion in these countries. We especially pray peace for Israel and protection.

- For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace. ( 1 Corinthians 14:33)

3. US to step up pressure on Iran, seek direct talks - Times of Israel

The US plans to up the pressure on Iran over its renegade nuclear program in the wake of the recent election of relative moderate Hasan Rouhani as president, and at the same time is seeking to enter into direct talks with the Islamic Republic on the issue, according to recent reports.

- Lord, we pray for the new president of Iran, Hasan Rouhani. We pray that he will be open to doing what is right. We pray for any talks with the Islamic Republic, that they would be led by the Holy Spirit. We pray especially for Moslems there to come into the light of the Lord Jesus. Shine Your light, Lord, in Iran into the darkness and into any talks between Iran and the US. In Your Name we pray, amen.

- "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." (2 Corinthians 4:6)

4. Greenwald: Snowden docs contain NSA 'blueprint' - AP

Edward Snowden has very sensitive "blueprints" detailing how the National Security Agency operates that would allow someone who read them to evade or even duplicate NSA surveillance, a journalist close to the intelligence leaker said Sunday.

- Lord, You are the one who knows the deep things of security issues. We ask that You bring to light only security things that should be revealed and that you would protect real security interests and not let evil be done in the name of security. We also pray for Edward Snowden for salvation and that he would do the right things. Protect him from doing harm we pray. We also pray for leadership in the National Security Agency to do right or be held accountable. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

- "He discovers deep things out of darkness, and brings out to light the shadow of death." (Job 12:22)

5. President Obama's Newest Executive Order: There Goes the Internet - Before Its News

Have you heard about the recent Presidential Executive Order (PEO) that will shut down all communications, including the Internet? What could not be done by valid legislation passed by Congress, in effect has been done by executive privilege fiat. Officially, that PEO is labeled "Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions" executed Friday, July 5, 2013. What that PEO really does is to empower the Department of Homeland Security to have "the authority to seize private facilities when necessary, effectively shutting down or limiting civilian communications." Something most citizens probably do not know is that PEOs become hard fast law once published in the Federal Register. You can read Mr. Obama's PEOs here.

Read more.

- Lord, this executive order was issued by the president since Congress had not passed a requested bill to do it. It will allow the Executive Branch to shut down all forms of communication that citizens use, saying that the excuse is it is 'needed' for security. Help us Lord, as we sink further into darkness and have the potential of losing our options for sharing and receiving vital world and local news and connections to serve You. In Jesus' Name we pray, Amen and Amen.

- "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."
(Psalm 9:17)

6. Now U.S. Copper Mines Under Attack- WND

On the heels of the Obama administration clamping down on oil and gas exploration and President Obama declaring what many consider to be a war on coal, environmental groups are now urging the government to deny exploration of the world's largest known copper reserve before the permitting process even begins. The Pebble Mine in Alaska could produce more than 80 billion pounds of copper, an amount that could wipe out America's need to import the element. Currently, some 35 percent of the copper used in the U.S. is brought in from foreign sources.

So does the EPA have the power to unilaterally veto a mining plan before the permit process begins? McGroarty said that's actually up to the EPA itself." It is a matter of the EPA being urged to interpret the powers it already has to allow this sort of veto activity. They're using a section of the Clean Water Act, which dates back 40-plus years, and interpreting it in a way that would allow them to stop this project from going into the permitting process to stop it before it begins," he said. "If EPA does this, they will be granting themselves the authority to do this. I must say, Pebble might be the first mine and copper the first metal, but it will by no means stop with one mine, and it will effect many different metals if the EPA takes that power." (Read more)

- Abba Father, this reflects a massive abuse of power by the EPA agency, to promote particular plans and purposes. It does not appear to reflect a balanced compromise so that the US can be more energy and resource independent. We ask You, Father, to raise up Your right hand and extend Your arm to stop this arrogance which denies the US from benefiting from the natural resources that You bestowed on it. Thank you Father, in Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen.

- "A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness will utter lies." (Proverbs 14:5)

7. Zimmerman Parents in Hiding After Death Threats - ABC News

Fearing for their lives after receiving "an enormous amount of death threats," George Zimmerman's parents have remained in hiding since a Florida jury cleared their son of murder charges in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, they told ABC News. The Zimmermans told ABC they are too afraid to return to their Orlando home, and they haven't even spoken to their son, who also is in hiding.

"Under the circumstances, we have not been able to talk to him," Gladys Zimmerman told ABC's Barbara Walters. "To tell you the truth, we don't trust anything, not even the phones."

"We have had an enormous amount of death threats. George's legal counsel has had death threats, the police chief of Sanford, many people have had death threats," Robert Zimmerman said. "'Everyone with Georgie's DNA should be killed' - Just every kind of horrible thing you can imagine." (Read more)

- Please cover these parents with the blessing of Psalm 91. Thank you.

- "My word, which comes from my mouth, is like the rain and snow. It will not come back to me without results. It will accomplish whatever I want and achieve whatever I send it to do." (Isaiah 55:11)

7. Reid signals deal on filibuster - The Hill

Senate leaders are close to a deal on executive branch nominees that would avoid Democrats triggering a controversial rules change known as the nuclear option.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said he would update Democratic colleagues on the deal on seven of President Obama's nominees at a caucus meeting later in the day.

"We may have a way forward on this," Reid announced on the Senate floor. "I feel fairly confident. "We have got i's to dot and t's to cross," said Reid, who added he would discuss the potential agreement with Vice President Joe Biden and other Senate Democratic leaders. (Read more)

- We have been told by inside sources that the Senate leadership is now scheduling key votes on a number of issues late at night, often before midnight. Only the strongest members will remain on the Senate floor into these late hours. Ask our Lord to grace each member of the Senate with His strength, so that these men and women can make it to the finish line. Ask, too, that our Lord would soften the heart of the Majority Leader, Harry Reid, allowing the Senate to recess at an earlier hour. We ask in Jesus' name, amen.

- "The LORD is far from wicked people, but he hears the prayers of righteous." (Proverbs 15:29)

8. Mexico catches notorious leader of Zetas cartel - Fox News

Captured in city near Texas border

The notoriously brutal leader of Mexico's feared Zetas drug cartel was captured in a pickup truck near the border city of Nuevo Laredo Monday, officials said, in what is the first major blow against an organized crime leader by a Mexican administration struggling to drive down persistently high levels of violence.

Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, 40, was also found with $2 million in cash as he was captured by Mexican Marines on a dirt road in the countryside outside of Nuevo Laredo, a city opposite the Texas border which has long served as the Zetas' base of operations. . .
"The Drug Enforcement Administration congratulates the Government of Mexico on the arrest of Miguel Trevino Morales," the DEA said in a statement released Tuesday. "Trevino Morales is of one of the most significant Mexican cartel leaders to be apprehended in several years and DEA will continue to support the Government of Mexico as it forges ahead in disrupting and dismantling drug trafficking organizations." (Read more)
- Offer praise to the LORD for this courageous and effective action by the Mexican Marines. Next, ask that justice be fully served in the courts of that nation; and that many others in this cartel would be apprehended as well. Praise the Lord!

-"Break the arm of the wicked and evil man; call him to account for his wickedness that would not be found out." (Ps. 10:15)

Hundreds of Jews came to the Temple Mount Monday in honor of Tisha B'Av, the anniversary of the destruction of the two Jewish Temples by the Babylonian and Roman empires respectively.

2. Report: Israel made sure no Russians in Latkia -- then attacked - Ynet News

Even after US sources affirmed that Israel was the one behind the bombing of the Yakhont missile stockpile in Latkia, Syria, the whole story behind the attack on the anti-ship cruise missiles remains murky.

3. John Bolton: Israel should have attacked Iran 'yesterday' - Jerusalem Post

"Israel should have attacked Iran yesterday -- every day that goes by puts Israel in greater danger, every day Iran makes more progress," John Bolton, a former US ambassador to the UN, told The Jerusalem Post in an interview on Monday.

4. Report: Hamas can once again produce rockets capable of hitting Tel Aviv - Jerusalem Post

Hamas has succeeded in regaining some of its capabilities which Israel wiped out in last year's Operation Pillar of Defense and has rockets capable of targeting the Gush Dan region of central Israel in which Tel Aviv is located, Army Radio reported on Monday.

5. Israel scratching its head after US officials (again) leak Syria strike - Times of Israel

In the wake of Israeli media reports about "anger" in Jerusalem over American leaks to CNN and The New York Times regarding an alleged Israeli attack in Syria this month, official sources clarified to The Times of Israel Monday that "there is no anger toward the administration."

6. US outraged after Israel backs out of terror suit - Ynet News

The Persecuted Church

Today's Focus: The Persecuted Church

"Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body." (Hebrews 13:3)

1. Philippines: Deal With Islamic Rebels Leaves Christians Wary, but Hopeful - AsiaNews

The peace agreement between the Filipino government and the rebel Moro Islamic Liberation Front "is not easy to understand. On the one hand, there is a lot of grumbling, especially among Christians, who do not trust what Muslims might do. On the other, there is hope that history, after 40 years, will not repeat itself and that we shall reach true peace," a Catholic source, anonymous for security reasons, told AsiaNews.

After eight months of negotiations, representatives of the Filipino government and of Mindanao separatists signed in Kuala Lumpur a first basic agreement on the economic and political life of the predominantly Muslim province.

However, the final deal seems to have upset a good portion of the Filipino population, which accuses the government, and President Benigno Aquino, of "selling out" the natural resources of the area.

The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) is an armed group that has been trying to achieve independence for mineral-rich Mindanao for the past few decades. The war has cost the lives of thousands of people and has prevented the parties from exploiting the area's rich mineral resources worth an estimated US$ 312 billion.

At present, local per capita income is around US$ 599 a year, about a quarter of the national average and the lowest in the country's 17 regions.

In Kuala Lumpur, where the talks were held, an agreement in principle was reached that would allocate to the newly formed local government 75 per cent of all revenues from gold, copper, zinc, lead and other mineral resources extracted from the autonomous areas.

2. Egyptian Christians Flee Sinai to Avoid Attacks - AsiaNews

About a hundred Christian families flee the Sinai after the murder of a Coptic priest and the beheading of a Christian businessman. Gunmen riddle churches with bullets. Christian stores are marked for possible attacks, whilst demonstrations target Patriarch Tawadros, "guilty" of supporting Morsi's ouster. Christians are likely to be scapegoated by Islamist groups and the Muslim Brotherhood.

More than a hundred Christian families have fled El Arish in the Sinai after receiving death threats from Islamist groups following the fall of Mohamed Morsi. On 6 July, a 39-year-old priest, Fr Mina Haroan Abboud, was killed. On 11 July, the body of another Christian, a merchant from Sheikh Zowayd, was found decapitated. He had been kidnapped a few days before. Currently, Coptic churches in northern Sinai have cancelled all services and meetings, except for a Mass on Friday. No Christians are left in the towns of Rafah and Sheikh Zowayd.

3. Slew of Violence in Bangladesh When Islamic Leader Sentenced to Prison - AsiaNews

90 year-old Ghulam Azam sentenced to 90 years in prison for war crimes. The verdict sparks explosions, clashes and scenes of urban warfare all over Bangladesh for national hartal (strikes) organized by supporters of the Jamaat-e-Islami (Islamic Party) and secular activists of Gonojagoron Mancha. Four people die, including a child.

Four dead, including a 9 year old girl and dozens of wounded, buses, shops and private cars vandalized and set on fire. This is the provisional toll from the National hartal (strike) called in Bangladesh, after the verdict issued yesterday by the International Crimes Tribunal in Dhaka. The court sentenced 91 year old Islamist leader and former president of Jamaat-e-Islami (Islamic Party), Ghulam Azam to 90 years in jail, for his role in the crimes committed during the Independence War (1971). A ruling that left everyone unhappy: the supporters of the Jamaat, are demanding their leaders absolution, Gonojagoron Mancha civil rights activists instead say the sentence is too light and call for the death penalty.

The courts have recognized Azam guilty of all the charges: murder, torture of unarmed people, conspiracy, incitement and complicity in genocide. Being 91, by law the judges spared Ghulam the death penalty.

Iran: Crisis Intensifies

Iranian Nuclear Crisis Nearing a Critical Tipping Point

Iran is edging closer toward its goal of nuclear weapons possession and is leading the already deeply unstable Middle East region down a path to a new crisis.

The warning signs are being drowned out somewhat by the horrors of the Syrian civil war and deteriorating unrest in Egypt, but they are present for any observer to see.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently voiced his concern that regional instability is causing the international community to take its eye off the swiftly-approaching Iranian nuclear crisis. "They're getting closer" to the nuclear red line, Netanyahu told CBS's Face the Nation. "They should understand that they're not going to be allowed to cross it."

Netanyahu stressed that the Israeli and U.S. clocks on this matter are "ticking at a different pace."

While Jerusalem's stated red line is an Iran in possession of 250 kilograms of enriched uranium, Washington's undeclared red line is significantly further behind that of Israel's. For the Obama administration, a trigger for action would be irrefutable evidence of an Iranian order to assemble a nuclear weapon.

There are multiple signals indicating that Iran is moving forward with the major components of its nuclear program, while keeping the level of its enriched uranium below a certain level to avoid triggering an Israeli military strike.

Iran's nuclear trajectory is unlikely to be affected by Hassan Rouhani's election as the new president, since he must defer all decisions on nuclear policy to the country's unelected supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei. Only Khamenei can order the regime to cease Iran's march towards nuclear weapons, and he has clearly refrained from doing so.

A growing chorus of international observers, including the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), noted that the twin policies being pursued by the United States and the international community - biting sanctions coupled with diplomacy - have failed to convince Khamenei to abandon the nuclear program.

Iran hasn't yet become a nuclear-armed state, but time is running out.

Deliver Us From Evil

Deliver Us From Evil

By Jill Martin Rische
July 16, 2013

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour." (1 Peter 5:8)

The Bible tells us we are to keep our eyes on the Lord, waiting eagerly for His return. As this world falls apart around us, it becomes even more important to cling to Him and draw our strength from Him. Today, evil seeks to devour every freedom we ever cherished as Americans, giving the prayer "deliver us from evil" a whole new sense of urgency.

The world changed for many of us on June 6, 2013 -- the day we first heard the name Edward Snowden. We knew our government was corrupt; we knew it could not be trusted. But what hit hard that day was the demoralizing realization that our freedom is only an illusion. Edward Snowden removed the blanket of security -- he revealed we live not in a priceless and protected Republic, but under Orwellian imperial rule. We are no longer citizens...we are subjects.
Since the start of Edward Snowden's crusade, I've often thought of this young man's choice to sacrifice everything in his fight against oppression: his life forfeited to any ruthless government that chose to take it; his reputation shredded both by his own actions and the endless political babble dissecting them. Whether one of the bravest men or the most contemptible, Edward Snowden has made a difference.
National Security agencies worldwide were rocked by the "Snowden Effect." It hit governments with the impact of an avalanche -- burying them under the weight of public scorn. It tested the already flimsy metal of the media and accomplished the impossible: bipartisan agreement. It revealed the evil intent of man-made strategy, designed by flawed humans who chose to target and oppress. Unwarranted surveillance is oppression, and whether we believe Snowden to be a traitor or a hero, oppression in any shape or form is evil. (Read more)

Alert from IPC


Focus on Ramadan; Egypt; Syria; Afghanistan and Pakistan

"Current Critical Prayer Concerns"

"A little while and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found. But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace." (Ps. 37:10-11)

Dear Partners in Prayer,

May we ask your help to pray for these serious situations? Please feel free to copy and distribute this alert to other intercessors and prayer groups you know.

1. Egypt - this nation has been on a roller coaster ride politically. After millions protested the regime of President Morsi, the powerful army deposed him several days ago. Many suspected that he and his Muslim Brotherhood wanted to turn Egypt into another Taliban-style Islamic state. There was also extreme frustration and disappointment over the continuing weak economy, prolonged electricity cuts and long lines at petrol stations. Hundreds of Brotherhood leaders, including its spiritual leader, Mohammed Badie, and eight other supporters, have since been arrested.
Please pray for His peace to be upon this land and for great wisdom and favor for the Interim President, Adly Mansour, and his administration as they work towards restoring the nation to democracy through new elections. Pray that the people of the nation will come together and support the new government and that violence will be prevented.
2. Syria - this nation continues to be torn asunder by its civil war with well over 90,000 who have lost their lives. Please pray for effective peace negotiations to happen and that both sides will find a peaceful way to settle their differences.
An urgent request for our prayers from a local Christian leader:

"For the last week, the city of Aleppo is surrounded heavily and all its exits and entry roads are closed. No way to come in or out. There is no fuel for cars Benzene one liter is about 24 USD$ if you can find it. Diesel is 8 $ for 1 liter. One kilo bread is getting about 8-10 $. Each egg is 1/2 $. Bread is hardly to be found in the coming few days. All shops are running out of stuff. We are in a big prison. All over our areas (Christian) daily shells are exploded. Many killed and tens and hundreds injured. In the last four days, all communications have been cut off. Internet, mobile phones, and even the water hardly to reach for weeks. Few Christian areas receive twice monthly and for few hours. Now, we are working on supplying water to many of our areas."

Please uphold our Christian brothers and sisters in Aleppo and elsewhere in the country. Pray for their protection and that the Lord will use their lives and witness for His glory in the chaos and suffering they face.

Prayers During Ramadan

Muslims in metro Vancouver: a growing tide

For Wednesday July 17, Ramadan 2013 - Day 09.
"Loving Muslims Through Prayer"

The 2001 Canada census showed that metro Vancouver had a population of 1.99 million and a Muslim population of 52,600; the 2006 census showed a 2.1 million general population and an estimated 90,000 Muslims. The fast growth of the Muslim population is attributed to increased immigration, refugee resettlement and high birth rates.

Walking into a Vancouver mosque is a bit like entering a United Nations forum. It is common to see Muslims worshipping together from dozens of different countries, usually with English as their only shared language.


- Pray for the Christian communities to show love, compassion and help to those who come to Vancouver as refugees and immigrants.

- Pray for Christian communities willingly to seek God's wisdom and leading as to how to interact with Muslims (Proverbs 13:14).

- Pray for the younger generations of Muslims actively to seek Christ in this diversified metropolis.

The Good News Corner:

Kenya President Seeks God's Covering for Nation

"As we come before the Almighty God in prayer, I call upon Kenyans to seek forgiveness and repent for our wrong doing. Let us also forgive one another and pray for reconciliation and healing in our country. I urge Kenyans to remember that we are all equal in the eyes of God, and we must forge ahead as one, united people." - President Uhuru Kenyatta

Kenya has been a nation struggling with issues that have tried to divide it, with Islamic terrorists killing Christians with increasing frequency. Muslims have tried to shut down Christian gatherings and houses of worship, especially near the country's borders with Somalia.

Prior to the past presidential election, March 4, 2013, "there has been great opposition from the Islamic agenda against the Christian Church," says Dr. Sammy Ngaho, founder and president of Ngaho International Ministries. "Through much prayer and faith all over the country, all resistance is coming down," Dr. Ngaho says.

"The election in March was the first peaceful election in over 50 years-with no bloodshed," he notes. "This is all because of what God did to answer prayer as we had very organized prayer across the entire country. Every county was fasting and praying. Every county was formally dedicated to God and an altar to God was planted there as well."

"The president of Kenya who was elected that March, Uhuru Kenyatta, and the deputy president, William Ruto, are both true Believers," says Dr. Ngaho. "And they declared that Kenya is a Christian nation one month ago in a speech at Kenya's 11th annual National Prayer Breakfast."

At the breakfast, President Kenyatta declared, "It is said that prayer is to the soul what food is to the body. This is indeed true. On a personal level, I am convinced that there is nothing more valuable than praying to God, for prayer unites us with our Creator." "This National Prayer Breakfast is unique as it is the first one in our Jubilee year. As we celebrate our Jubilee anniversary this year, let us profess that it will be our year of restoration, renewal and repentance in the spirit of the Biblical year of Jubilee."

He also asked his nation to repent of their sins. "As we come before the Almighty God in prayer, I call upon Kenyans to seek forgiveness and repent for our wrong doing. Let us also forgive one another and pray for reconciliation and healing in our country. I urge Kenyans to remember that we are all equal in the eyes of God, and we must forge ahead as one, united people."
As President Kenyatta considered enormous challenges facing the country, he said, "I would like to assure all Kenyans that we are determined to deal with any internal and external threats to our peace and security. However, as we endeavor to deal with these challenges, let us also remember the words of the Psalmist in Psalm 127 that "except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain."

"Thirdly, let us all pray to God for our daily bread, for the adequate sustenance of each and every one of us. There are many of our people who live below the poverty line and others who are unemployed and have no secure means of earning a livelihood. As Christians, we have a duty to these people."

Dr. Ngaho is grateful for a president who openly reflects an eternal perspective. "We are just thanking God for what He has done in our nation," says Dr. Ngaho. Dr. Ngaho is also responsible for launching a Bible school, boy's home and feeding program in Nairobi and Nakuru, Kenya as well as in Durban, South Africa.
