1. 'I May Go': Trump May Head to Israel for Upcoming US Embassy Opening in Jerusalem -CBN News

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump said he "may go" to the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.

CBN's Ben Kennedy asked President Trump during a joint press conference with Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel Friday if he and members of his family planned to fly out for the historic opening. "I may go. I'm very proud of it," said Trump.

2. Multi-Million Dollar Building for Visiting Christians Planned Next to U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem - Breaking Israel News

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews ("The Fellowship") is breaking ground on its new Jerusalem headquarters, a multi-million dollar building that will provide a home in the Holy Land for visiting Christians.

In the context of what has become known as "the golden age for Jewish-Christian relations," the new center will be located next to the planned U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, a move which many evangelical Christians in the United States strongly supported.

The building project, which will likely take three years, is also located exactly in between the Western Wall and Bethlehem, where Jesus was born, according to early Christian traditions.

The headquarters will primarily be used as an educational facility in which Christians will learn about Jesus' life in Jerusalem and the Jewish roots of the Christian faith, including baptism, which some say is based in the Jewish tradition of mikveh, a ritual bath. According to Yael Eckstein, the Fellowship's global executive vice president, the building is intended to be "inspirational to both the Christian visitors and beneficial for the people of Israel."

3. IDF attacks Hamas's naval force in Gaza - Israel National News

"For several weeks now, the Hamas terrorist organization has been leading violent disturbances that constitute a cover for a series of terrorist attacks against terror infrastructures, security forces and civilians," the IDF statement said.

"At the height of the events today, a large scale violent incursion was carried out, in which Hamas terrorist operatives led hundreds of violent rioters, including terrorists, towards Israel, while throwing explosives, hand grenades and firebombs, and even damaging the fence."

"The IDF views with great severity the ongoing attempt by the Hamas terrorist organization to turn the fence into a space of violence and terrorism under civilian cover, with repeated attempts to damage and destroy the security and defense infrastructures," the IDF said.

"The IDF will not allow cynical use of civilians, including children, women and persons with disabilities, as a cover for ongoing terrorist activity against Israeli citizens and IDF forces, and will continue to respond harshly to any such terrorist attempt. The response to the continuation of such incidents will not be confined to the area of the fence and the Hamas terrorist organization will bear its consequences even deep inside the Gaza Strip," it warned.

4. Palestinians must make peace or shut up, Saudi crown prince said to tell US Jews - Times of Israel

At a meeting with Jewish leaders in New York last month, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman castigated the Palestinian leadership for rejecting opportunities for peace with Israel for decades, and said they should either start accepting peace proposals or "shut up."

Citing what it said were multiple sources, Israel's Channel 10 News on Sunday night quoted what it said were remarks made by the crown prince at the meeting that left those who were present "staggered" by the ferocity of his criticism of the Palestinians. "For the past 40 years, the Palestinian leadership has missed opportunities again and again, and rejected all the offers it was given," the Saudi leader reportedly said.

"It's about time that the Palestinians accept the offers, and agree to come to the negotiating table - or they should shut up and stop complaining," he reportedly went on.

The Daily Brief

1. Kim Jong-un finally appears serious about abandoning the nuclear weapons program - Washington Times

North and South Korea delivered a joint declaration affirming the "mutual goal" of pursuing "complete denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula Friday, signaling the firmest commitment to date by the North's Kim Jong-un that he may be serious about abandoning the nuclear weapons program his nation has long used to threaten America and its allies. Mr. Kim and the South's President Moon Jae-in also vowed to pursue a peace treaty formally ending the Korean war after a more than a 60-year stalemate. But it was the "denuclearization" statement that reverberated most deeply across the world and in Washington, where the Trump administration has demanded it as a precondition for further talks with Pyongyang.

While the stage is now set for a historic face-to-face summit later this spring between President Trump and Mr. Kim, uncertainty still abounds over the veracity of the North Korean leader's commitment to abandon the nuclear program that Pyongyang has spent decades nefariously building in violation of U.N. sanctions and outrage from the wider international community. Mr. Trump is under pressure from allies, including Japan, to push hard in the yet-to-be-scheduled summit for a firm timeline, perhaps as early as 2020, for Mr. Kim to come through with the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement of the nuclear program. Despite the major breakthroughs on Friday, it remains to be seen whether Mr. Kim will agree to such a deadline. To the contrary, the joint declaration delivered by the North Korean leader and the South's President Moon said broadly that the two had "agreed to gradually realize arms reduction when their military tension is removed and trust is practically established." (Read more)

- Father in heaven, we address the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and ask that the evil powers from North and South Korean leaders that dominate this nuclear program be brought down by divine deliverance so that freedom and righteousness sweep over that area. We pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life." (Proverbs 6:23)

2. Merkel, at White House, says Iran deal 'not sufficient' to curb nuclear program - Times of Israel

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, standing alongside US President Donald Trump at the White House, said Friday that the existing international accord on Iran is not enough to curb the Islamic republic's nuclear ambitions. The so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, signed by Tehran and six world powers including Germany and the United States, is "a first step that has contributed to slowing down their activities in this particular respect," Merkel told reporters. Trump welcomed Merkel to the White House for a visit of less than three hours. The two discussed Trump's demand for an overhaul by May 12 of the nuclear deal - an agreement that Germany believes should remain in place.

Although Germany is unlikely to accept a wholesale rewrite of the deal, Berlin has indicated that it is prepared to consider add-ons that would crack down on Tehran's ballistic missile program and curb Iranian efforts to strengthen its strategic role in the Middle East. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday that Trump has not yet decided whether to quit the nuclear deal with Iran, warning that he was unlikely to remain in it if the accord goes unchanged. Pompeo said he and his team were working to see if the president's concerns could be addressed. "There has been no decision made," Pompeo said at a press conference after meeting with NATO foreign ministers in Brussels. But, he added, "The president has been clear. Absent a substantial fix, absent overcoming the shortcomings, the flaws of the deal, he is unlikely to stay in that deal past this May." He also said that he would be discussing ways to address Trump's concerns during his upcoming trip to the Middle East, during which he will hold high-level talks in Saudi Arabia, Israel and Jordan. (Read more)

- Father God, we stand in faith believing that the nuclear ambitions of Iran are completely in the hands of our God. No nation can usurp authority over the plans and purposes of the Lord. We pray these six world powers, including the Middle East, be guided by the voice of God that rings clear over the nations regarding this matter. We pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "Counsel is the Lord's, and sound wisdom : I AM understanding; I have strength. By God kings reign, and princes decree justice. By Me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth." (Proverbs 8:14-16)

3. House panel's Russia report finds 'no evidence' of collusion, Trump says probe 'MUST END NOW' - FoxNews

The House Intelligence Committee on Friday declared that it found "no evidence" of collusion between the Russian government and Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election, releasing a heavily redacted final report on its yearlong Russia investigation. The Republican-authored report -- released over Democratic objections -- stated the committee "found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded, coordinated, or conspired with the Russian government." The committee did, however, "find poor judgment and ill-considered actions by the Trump and Clinton campaign."

President Trump, reacting to the report moments after its release, hailed its findings and said the Russia "Witch Hunt" must end, in an apparent swipe at Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation. The more than 250-page report was heavily blacked out, however, and the leader of the committee investigation slammed the intelligence community for their "overzealous redactions." The report includes more than 25 recommendations for Congress and the executive branch to improve election security, U.S. government response to cyberattacks, campaign finance transparency, and counterintelligence practices related to political campaigns and unauthorized disclosures. (Read more)

- Father in heaven, we come before You in prayer asking that this Russian investigation be stilled by the powerful hand of God. Let the words, "It is Finished" be the indelible end of every aspect of this matter. We pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "The way of the Lord is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity." (Proverbs 10:29)

4. House Intel Report: James Clapper Denied, Then Admitted He Spoke to Jake Tapper About Dossier - Breitbart

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper admitted to congressional investigators that he spoke with CNN about the Trump dossier close to the time the outlet published a scoop, according to a House Intelligence Committee report released Friday. The report revealed that Clapper, during an interview with House Intelligence Committee investigators on July 17, 2017, first "flatly denied" that he had discussed with journalists the dossier or any other intelligence related to the 2016 election. But during that same interview, he later admitted discussing the dossier with CNN's Jake Tapper and possibly other journalists.

The House report also noted that Clapper became a CNN analyst not long after the conversation: The confirmation that Clapper spoke to Tapper comes after recently published memos by former FBI Director James Comey revealed that at the time he briefed Trump on the dossier, he knew CNN was looking for a "news hook" in order to report on the dossier. Comey's memos also revealed that Clapper was the one who asked him to brief Trump on the dossier - which subsequently became the "news hook" for which CNN was looking. The sequence of those events has raised questions about whether Clapper was attempting to set up the news hook CNN needed to publish the dossier. The report also found that Clapper had inaccurately publicly testified in May 2017 that the dossier was not "in any way used" in the assessment. (Read more)

- Almighty God, we trust that You will compel the truth to prevail regarding the dossier and that You will expose every lie that has been spoken and used against President Trump regarding this entire report. Father, expose the one who has held control control over Trump's life which craved dominance. We ask and pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "Let no man deceive you with empty words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience." (Ephesians 5:6)

5. EXCLUSIVE: Cabal Of Wealthy Donors Financing $50 Million Trump-Russia Investigation - Daily Caller

A group of wealthy donors from New York and California have forked out $50 million to fund a Russia investigation being conducted by Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS and a former Senate staffer for Dianne Feinstein. That bombshell revelation is made in a footnote to the House Intelligence Committee's newly released report on Russian interference in the presidential campaign. Fusion GPS hired Steele, a former MI6 agent, to investigate Trump's activities in Russia. He would go on to produce a 35-page report alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. The Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee funded the project. A law firm representing the organizations hired Fusion GPS in April 2016.

While the dossier project failed to help former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton win the presidency, Fusion GPS and Steele have continued their investigative work. That's according to statements from Daniel Jones, a former Feinstein staffer who runs the Penn Quarter Group (PQG), a Washington, D.C., consulting firm. The House report states that in March 2017, Jones told the FBI about a project he is working on with Steele and Fusion GPS that is being funded to the tune of $50 million by 7 to 10 wealthy donors from New York and California. Jones' name first emerged in connection with the Russia probe in February after Fox News published a batch of text messages exchanged between Virginia Sen. Mark Warner and Adam Waldman, a lawyer for Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch who is under scrutiny in the Russia probe. The texts show that Waldman was working as a backchannel between Steele and Warner. Waldman referred to Jones in two exchanges with Warner, who sought to meet with Steele separate from the rest of the Senate Intel panel. During that meeting, Waldman says that Jones revealed that he was working with Fusion GPS. Jones also said that a "group of Silicon Valley billionaires and George Soros" were funding the project with Fusion GPS, according to Waldman, who testified to the Senate Intelligence panel on Nov. 3.

- Almighty God, through the power of the Blood of Jesus, we pray this oligarchy which is an arm of the shadow government whose ruling power belongs to a few people, reap utter defeat in this investigation against Trump. In the powerful Name of Jesus we pray.

- "For they have sown the wind, and shall reap the whirlwind." Hosea 8:7 "Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goes forth with violent anger, a cutting whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked." (Jeremiah 30:23)

6. Brooks Suggests Republicans Are Retiring Because of Assassination Fears - Roll Call

Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks suggested in a radio interview that Republicans are retiring en masse because of assassination fears. Brooks was speaking on "The Dale Jackson Show" about the first Republican practice the Congressional Baseball Game after last year's shooting that left Majority Whip Steve Scalise severely injured. "We have multiple rings of security, plainclothes, uniform, Capitol Police, other police," he said. "There was a medical vehicle nearby just in case there was a copycat."

But Brooks said while there were multiple factors that contributed to a slew of Republicans leaving the House, he suggested fears of violence was a major one. Brooks referred to the fact many members of the Republican baseball team are retiring, including Sen. Jeff Flake and Reps. Ryan Costello, Pat Meehan, Dennis Ross and Tom Rooney. "You have to wonder with that kind of disproportionate retirement number whether what happened in June played a factor," he said. Brooks also pointed to the fact that in the past month, a man pled guilty to threatening Arizona Rep. Martha McSally and three different people have been arrested for threatening Reps. Scott Taylor and Tom Garrett of Virginia and Frank LoBiondo of New Jersey. "Notice a trend here?" he said. "I have a congressman who is a friend here who has a three-year old daughter whose daughter was threatened with murder." He also said the "socialist Bernie Sanders wing of society" was pushing for a revolution that would lead to Maoist level of violence. "There are a growing number of leftists who believe the way to resolve this is not at the ballot box but through threats and sometimes through violence and assassinations," he said. (Read more)

- Almighty God, we pray that this new report of threats against Republicans be covered by the powerful Blood of Jesus and there be no harm carried out against them. Bind up these unholy powers of evil by surrounding each and every person and entity with holy angels sent by God to protect the innocent. This we pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "Behold, I AM the Lord the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for Me?" (Jeremiah 32:27)

7. Federal appeals court restores Texas voter-ID law - Washington Times

A federal appeals court ruled Friday that Texas's new version of its voter-ID law can go into effect, rebuking a lower court judge for trying to block the law and delivering a significant victory to voter-integrity advocates. The original law passed earlier this decade had been blocked after the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals concluded both its purpose and effect was to punish minority voters. But the state legislature went back and made changes, and the 5th Circuit, in a 2-1 ruling, now says the new version cures what ailed the previous one.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton hailed the ruling. "The court rightly recognized that when the Legislature passed Senate Bill 5 last session, it complied with every change the 5th Circuit ordered to the original voter ID law," he said. "Safeguarding the integrity of our elections is essential to preserving our democracy." The new law includes a longer list of ID options that are acceptable for voting purposes, allows people to use expired identification for even longer and requires mobile dispensaries to dole out election identification documents to those who might not otherwise have a valid ID for voting purposes. (Read more)

- Father God, we praise Your holy Name for intervening to establish the new version of the Texas voter-ID law safeguarding the integrity of our elections. In the Name of Jesus we pray.

- "O God, You have taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared Your wondrous works." (Psalm 71:17)

8. Thanks to Kanye, Groupthink Is Broken - RealClearPolitics

A cultural shift is happening before our very eyes. Entertainment royalty and prominent blacks in American society, long beholden to the Democrat Party, had a rare breakout moment this week, setting the social media stratosphere ablaze. Kayne West, the uber-famous rapper, unleashed this grenade on his 28 million Twitter followers on Wednesday: "Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed." This is true -- liberal policies at work in Chicago and other inner cities like Detroit haven't reduced gang violence, improved underfunded schools or freed blacks from the chains of generational poverty. All one has to do is compare the statistics on cities like Chicago when Barack Obama took office to those from when he left to see, as West rightfully noted, nothing had changed.

What did change this week is that someone had the courage to break from the iron grip of conformist thinking and challenge liberal orthodoxy. This is a tectonic shift on several fronts, the first being that a famous black rapper challenged progressive policies of a black former president that have failed the black community. The second, and perhaps more significant political and cultural shift, is that a celebrity, long used by the Democrat Party to keep rich establishment folks in power, broke from groupthink and dared to think for himself. And he had the courage to express his views on social media, along with a photo of himself wearing a Make America Great Again hat, to his massive following. In a string of tweets, Kayne West promoted individualism and the importance of being a free thinker, and encouraged people to speak their minds without fear. (Read more)

- Lord God, we praise Your holy Name for supporting Kanye West in his brave and heroic statements of the joy of living in freedom. We ask that You will draw millions into this solid, God-ordained mindset. We pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only does wondrous things. And blessed be His glorious Name forever: and let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen." (Psalm 72:18-19)

9. Franklin Graham, Paula White, About 200 Evangelical Leaders Tell Congress to Pass Prison Reform Bill - Christian Post

Well-known evangelical leaders such as Franklin Graham, Paula White and Samuel Rodriguez are calling on members of Congress to pass bipartisan re-entry reform legislation that aims to provide federal prisoners with the training and rehabilitation they need to be successful once they are released back into society. Hundreds of Christian leaders have signed onto a letter sent Wednesday to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other congressional leaders voicing support for the Prison Reform and Redemption Act of 2017, also known as H.R. 3356.

The bill would expand programs that focus on their individual problems, such as drug rehabilitation, treatment for sexual addiction, job training, anger management or others. The legislation would also expand risk assessment to determine the best programs for individual prisoners. Through completion of such programs, eligible prisoners would earn time credits and eligibility to complete their sentences under community supervision, in halfway homes or under home confinement. "Our work throughout the nation's prison system also affirms the need for our federal government to take practical actions, like those outlined in this bill, in order to reduce recidivism and to give our prisoners a better chance of rebuilding their lives, their families, and contributing to society," the letter continues. "As representatives of millions of religious Americans, we have seen how so many in our own communities have been affected by inadequacies in our prison system, and we believe there is widespread support for these reforms." (Read more)

- Almighty God, thank You for raising up well-known evangelical leaders to speak out for re-entry reform legislation that will provide federal prisoners with training and rehabilitation that they need to live successful lives once they are released from prison. We ask that this will be established unhindered by the enemy. We pray in the Name of Jesus.

- "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy Name. who redeems your life from destruction: who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies." (Psalm 103:1, 4)

10. 140+ Nationwide Rallies to Urge Trump to Stop Taxpayer Funding of Planned Parenthood - CNS News

On Saturday, April 28th, rallies will be held at more than 140 Planned Parenthood locations throughout the United States. This nationwide day of prayer and protest is being coordinated by #ProtestPP, a coalition of more than 75 national, state and local pro-life organizations. The rallies will call on President Trump to stop taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood - the nation's largest abortion business. The effort to fully defund the organization of all federal tax dollars-about $430 million annually-has stalled in Congress. But an effort is now underway to revise Title X family planning rules to block the abortion business as a recipient, and deprive them of some $60-80 million annually.
"Defunding Planned Parenthood was a core promise made by President Trump to the voters, and now he has a huge opportunity to deliver a victory where Congress has failed," said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, whose organization co-sponsors #ProtestPP, adding: "The pro-life grassroots from across the country will rally behind our President, urging him to fulfill the promise he made to voters to get taxpayers out of the abortion business by ending federal funding for abortion giant Planned Parenthood." (Read more)

- Almighty God, we put our trust in You to strengthen President Trump's promise to revise Title X family planning rules that will block the abortion business and stop the influx of multi-millions of dollars that has supported Planned Parenthood. With godly determination, raise up #ProtestPP to stand strong in the Lord and be instrumental in saving the lives of millions of babies, that will close the doors of Planned Parenthood. We pray in the precious Name of Jesus.

- "Also in your skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents." (Jeremiah 2:34)

The Daily Jot


Media as enemy of the state

There is an interesting article by Philip Bump of the Washington Post posted by the Standard-Examiner about how President Donald Trump sees the media as an enemy of the American people. Bump uses the opportunity to run down the President by saying that his rants are just added to the "lengthy column" of "Things Trump did that most other presidents would never do." Then Bump gets to the point. He cites a Quinnipiac University poll that asked if certain news outlets were enemies of the American people. The results were nearly 40% said "yes" and more than 80% of Republicans surveyed said the media was an enemy of the American people.

Another poll Bump cites is Pew Research Center's survey on what it means to be a good citizen. Bump writes: "Only 8 percent of respondents said they had a great deal of confidence in the news media to act in the best interests of the public-with Democrats expressing a great deal or a fair amount of confidence more than three times the rate of Republicans." Of course, Bump blames Trump for turning the people against the media. And this is part of the problem-the media itself is so biased that it cannot even fathom it is biased. The Media Research Center documents that the overwhelming majority of the media (some 80% -plus) votes Democratic--a direct correlation to the 90% negative news media against Trump and Republicans.

On April 24th, Trump wrote in an email to supporters: "My staff asked, "Mr. President, the White House Correspondents' Dinner is coming up. Will you go?" I said, "Why would I want to be stuck in a room with a bunch of fake news liberals who hate me?" I came up with something much better. I'm going to hold a rally in Michigan to spend the evening with my favorite deplorables who love our movement and love America!" This is a far cry from the last Correspondents' Dinner attended by the immediate past "president." He told them, "But we've always shared the same goal -- to root our public discourse in the truth; to open the doors of this democracy; to do whatever we can to make our country and our world more free and more just. And I've always appreciated the role that you have all played as equal partners in reaching these goals."

The ex "president" described a free press as one that partners with and has the same goals as the White House, his administration, in particular. This is not a free press. Trouble is, the news media, through years of communistic and socialistic brainwashing, largely has become the lapdog of leftists, Marxists, Islamists, and anarchists. The press, rather than doing its job of reporting the facts, has become a massive opinion machine disguised as news. When the media abrogates its responsibility and aligns itself with a political ideal, Isaiah 59:14 comes to mind: "And justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." And the media wonders why they are considered enemies of the American people. Strong delusion is upon them.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Australia Calls the World to Pray!

Australia Calls World to Pray & Fast for the USA, April 30th - May 3rd
A reminder that, for the sixth year in a row, Australia is calling the nations of the world to join with them to pray and fast for four days for the United States of America, from 30 April - 3 May 2018.

Commissioner James Condon, a member of the National Day of Prayer & Fasting team, said, "God has done remarkable things in America since we began to pray and fast, but God can do greater things yet! We in Australia believe it is our turn to stand in the gap for the nation of America and pray for revival and transformation for the USA through prayer and fasting according to 2 Chronicles 7:14. Whilst America has a new administration, the need for a new National Awakening has never been more apparent.

Commissioner Condon from Salvation Army continued, "We in Australia are grateful for the protection that America gave Australia and the nations of the free world during World War II. The Battle of the Coral Sea, fought by USA in 1942, was the turning point in the Second World War for Australia. America continues to be a blessing to the world. Even to this day the USA is the largest contributor of foreign aid among all the countries of the world. Thank God for America!"

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.

We praise God for the literal hundreds who have joined us over the past year and a half to accomplish this feat, and we know that our Lord must be deeply pleased to have heard His Word read back to Him . . . 36 times.

> > > As we meditated upon this milestone, we were visited by the hush of the Holy Spirit, so we waited upon Him for a word. Our Lord reminded us that, in His own week of working, that after six days . . . He RESTED.

Abba shared with us that we have now entered a NEW SEASON in our readings . . . one that would include a "seventh day rest" for the people of God.

And so, beginning this week, our Readathon WILL continue (as above) for SIX DAYS, but will be suspended on Sunday mornings, 12:01 a.m. to 6:00 a.m., that we might rest before Him and dwell in His presence, abiding even more deeply in Him.

It is written: "So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God." (Hebrews 4:9)

We welcome you back every Monday night through Saturday morning, and then we wish you . . . shalom!
