Prayer about Syria

A Prayer Request about Syria:

Released by the Presidential Prayer Team

Presidential Prayer Watch Intercessors

(Urgent Update - 4/10/18)

Dear Presidential Prayer Watch Intercessors,

There is a critical and urgent issue we must be aware of and include in our intercession.

As the stories around the recent chemical attack in the United Kingdom implodes, now another chemical attack has taken place in Syria. What American's must be aware of, is that over the last week Russian officials have been publically warning that a chemical attack was possibly being planned in Syria that would then be blamed on the Syrian government and Russia.

Pray the truth of exactly who carried out the attack in Syria would become known. Pray that the war many are calling for would be averted. Pray God will deliver the President from any deception or counsel that would lead him to act in Syria before all the real facts of what happened become known.

Prior to the declaration that God will "be exalted among the nations", the Psalmist assures us how it's God alone who, "makes wars to cease to the ends of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;"

Friends, the church is the last line of defense in this critical hour of history. Our intercession can change the course of events in this nation and around the world regardless of fake news and political corruption.

Thank you for adding this to your intercession.

Dr. David White - Presidential Prayer Watch - Moravian Falls, NC

Focus on Israel

1. Iran threatens Israel over Syria strike - Times of Israel

A top adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threatened Israel Tuesday over a deadly airstrike in Syria attributed to the Israeli military. "The crimes will not remain unanswered," Ali Akbar Velayati said during a visit to Syria, according to the official Islamic Republic News Agency.

Earlier in the day, Iranian media reported that seven members of the country's military were killed in the strike, out of at least 14 reported fatalities.

2. PA lifts 'disguise' on 'martyr' payments, defying Taylor Force Act - Jerusalem Post

After three years of disguising its payments to families of martyrs and imprisoned terrorists, the Palestinian Authority has lifted its veil on those payments in a "blatant act of defiance" against the United States, a new report says.

The report by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, obtained by The Jerusalem Post prior to its being posted online, argues that the PA 's removal of its disguise on payments is its response to the Taylor Force Act.

The legislation, recently passed by the US Congress, stipulates that portions of US aid to the PA will be cut back until it stops paying stipends to terrorists in Israeli prisons, released terrorists and the families of shahids, the Arabic word for martyrs - terrorists who die while carrying out violent acts.

Since May 29, 2014, the amount allocated to the Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs was removed from the PA budget "in an attempt to disguise the fact that it is the PA that finances the payments to imprisoned and released terrorists," the report says.

3. Hamas leader, Israel PM dig in on Gaza border flare-up - Washington Post

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - The leader of Gaza's ruling Hamas group and Israel's prime minister staked out tough positions Monday, making de-escalation on the Israel-Gaza border in the near future unlikely.

Since late March, 26 Palestinians have been killed and hundreds wounded by Israeli fire in mass border protests led by Hamas, but also driven by widespread desperation over the territory's decade-old border blockade by Israel and Egypt.

The protests are seen, in part, as an attempt by Hamas to break the blockade.

4. Gaza violence puts Israel back on ICC radar - Jerusalem Post

After quite a while being off, Israel is back on the International Criminal Court prosecutor's radar. The ICC prosecutor's statement on Sunday was a clear and direct warning to both Israel and Hamas about taking any actions that the ICC might view as war crimes. This is a big and swift shift. Until Sunday, the ICC prosecution had not said a word about Israel since its October 2016 visit, had never commented on incidents in real time and has had its hands full elsewhere.

5. 'Most important law in 20 years' - Israel National News

Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett congratulates the Prime Minister on his decision to advance the Overrule Clause enabling the Knesset to override Supreme Court decisions, and that will assist in passing the Infiltrators Law.

"I congratulate the Prime Minister on his response to the passage of the Immigration and Imprisonment Law, and I expect very rapid progress. This is the most important law in 20 years. Tomorrow we'll be able to pass it in the government (ministerial committee) and I'm sure his promise will be accompanied by determined actions."

Earlier, it was reported that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will bring a broad-based court overrule bill tomorrow at the party leaders' forum.

Netanyahu instructed Minister Yariv Levin to draft a bill following the infiltrators' crisis, but apparently the proposed bill will be broader and relate to the relationship between Knesset legislation and the Supreme Court.

The Daily Brief

1. Syrian troops on alert amid fear of US strike after gas attack - The Times of Israel

Syrian government forces and their allies are on alert and taking precautionary measures at military bases and posts across the country amid fears of a US strike in the aftermath of a chemical weapons attack, Syrian war monitors said Tuesday. The measures come as US President Donald Trump is threatening an imminent military strike against Syria, vowing to respond "forcefully" to Saturday's apparent chemical weapons attack on civilians near Damascus and warning that Russia - or any other nation found to share responsibility - will "pay a price."

Syrian opposition activists said 40 people died in Saturday night's chemical attack in the town of Douma, the last remaining rebel bastion just outside of the Syrian capital, Damascus. The opposition blamed President Bashar Assad's forces for the attack, accusations the government and its Russian backers strongly deny. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that as of Monday night, troops have been on a 72-hour alert and are fortifying their positions. The Observatory's chief Rami Abdurrahman said the alert includes all army positions and bases from the southern province of Sweida all the way to Aleppo province in the north, the Mediterranean coast in the west to Deir el-Zour province in the east, along the Iraqi border.

2. Deputy AG Rosenstein Personally Approved FBI Raid On Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen: Report - Mediaite

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein personally approved the search warrant on President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, The New York Times confirmed Tuesday afternoon. The process by which the FBI may obtain a search warrant on a lawyer is "among the most sensitive moves federal prosecutors can make as they pursue a criminal investigation," the Times reported. Indeed, prosecutors must jump through several legal hoops in order to obtain one, and it was originally believed that Geoffrey Berman, interim U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, signed off on the warrant. In fact, Berman, a Trump appointee, recused himself from the case, and Rosenstein approved the recusal.

Meanwhile, Rosenstein - who appointed special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 elections and possible obstruction of justice by the president and/or his campaign - personally gave the thumbs-up on the warrant which allowed FBI officers to obtain documents from Cohen. The documents the FBI is interested in are, among other things, details into Cohen's payments to two different women with whom President Donald Trump allegedly had affairs: Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal. Trump has reportedly considered firing Rosenstein several times, and has called the entire raid on Cohen a "witch hunt," "an attack on our country," and proof that "attorney-client privilege is dead." (Read more)

- Father God, You know how to deliver men from broods of vipers - we pray Your peace to envelop the Trump family and Your deliverance to remove them from those who wish them harm.

- Who are you mocking? At whom do you sneer and stick out your tongue? Are you not a brood of rebels, the offspring of liars? (Isaiah 57:4)

3. Zuckerberg Being Grilled on Hill by His Firm's Cash Recipients - RealClearInvestigations

As a contrite Mark Zuckerberg is grilled on Capitol Hill this week over the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal, he can be forgiven for hoping some cool Facebook lobbying cash will help reduce the heat from his inquisitors. According to, a site that tracks political contributions, Facebook-affiliated donors have given liberally to candidates at the federal level - liberally indeed: Since the 2006 election cycle, they have given roughly twice as much to Democrats ($4.6 million) as Republicans ($2.3 million). In the 2012 presidential cycle, they gave nearly five times more to Barack Obama ($95,107) than to Mitt Romney ($20,100) - as Facebook was also evidently assisting Obama's online efforts. For 2016 they bestowed about 100 times more money on Hillary Clinton ($478,466) than on Donald Trump ($4,815), notwithstanding any help the latter got from Cambridge Analytica's mining of Facebook data.

Zuckerberg's most immediate concern is his interrogators this week - Democrats and Republicans alike who have benefitted from his company's cash. USA Today reported last week that the congressional panel that got the most Facebook contributions is the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which is due to question Zuckerberg on Wednesday. Members of the panel, which has regulatory power over Internet companies, received nearly $381,000 in contributions tied to Facebook since 2007, USA Today reported, citing Open Secrets. The second-highest total, $369,000, went to members of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, which jointly questioned Zuckerberg with the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.(Read more)

4. Dow surges more than 400 points as China's Xi alleviates trade war fears - CNBC

Stocks rallied on Tuesday as Wall Street breathed a sigh of relief after China's president said he would work to "open" the country's economy, easing trade war fears. The Dow Jones industrial average closed 428.90 points higher at 24,408, with Boeing as the best-performing stock in the index. The S&P 500 gained 1.8 percent to close at 2,656.87, with energy leading nine of 11 sectors higher. The Nasdaq composite advanced 1.7 percent to 7,094.30. Boeing and Caterpillar both rose more than 3 percent as concerns of a trade war were alleviated.

Chinese President Xi Jinping discussed plans Tuesday to further open up the country's economy, with measures including lowering import tariffs on autos, enforcing legal intellectual property of foreign groups and reducing duties on other consumer products. "If you look at President Xi's speech, it was conciliatory and that feels like a de-escalation," said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at B. Riley FBR. "That's what the market wants." Xi's address also appeared to boost market sentiment overseas Tuesday, with markets in Europe and Asia trading higher during their respective sessions. Investors have been on edge recently on fears that the U.S. and China could engage each other in a trade war. (Read more)

- Father, we thank You for these conciliatory words from China and pray our nations will come into a fair trade agreement soon.

- The godly are directed by honesty; the wicked fall beneath their load of sin. (Proverbs 11:5)

5. Trump announces 12th wave of judicial picks; six women named for the federal bench - Washington Times

President Trump announced a new wave of 20 judicial nominees Tuesday, including top posts for a close aide to former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and a replacement for a district judgeship where Mr. Trump's first candidate washed out in the confirmation process. Six of the 20 picks are women, and they are a young group - particularly the three nominees for the critical circuit courts of appeals - making good on conservatives' goal of trying to reshape the judiciary for years to come.

The circuit court nominees are: Georgia Supreme Court Justice Britt C. Grant for the 11th U.S. Court of Appeals, David J. Porter also for the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Paul B. Matey for the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Matey was deputy general counsel to Mr. Christie. The announcement comes as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to confirm three of Mr. Trump's previous judicial nominees this week. (Read more)

- Father, we lift up all President Trump's nominees awaiting confirmation by the Senate and pray for swift votes to confirm them.

- "I will come like a lion from the thickets of the Jordan, leaping on the sheep in the pasture. I will chase Babylon from its land, and I will appoint the leader of my choice. For who is like me, and who can challenge me? What ruler can oppose my will?" (Jeremiah 50:44)

6. GOP plans major votes on tax cuts, balanced budget, welfare reform - Washington Examiner

House and Senate Republicans are planning a slew of significant votes in the coming weeks on language making the individual tax cuts permanent, a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, and a bill to reform the food stamp program, even in the face of looming fall elections that usually slow down the congressional agenda. Consideration of a dozen fiscal 2019 appropriations measures will also begin in House and Senate committees this spring.

Republicans in both chambers are weighing whether to bring up a bill that would make permanent the individual tax rate cuts that are included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The bill permanently slashed the corporate rate to 21 percent, but the individual tax rate reductions expire after a decade. Texas Republicans Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady last week talked up the plan, which Brady has called a "phase two" of the GOP's overall tax reform agenda. While the bill would likely fail in the Senate, thanks to the filibuster rule requiring 60 votes, it would put Democrats in a painful political position before the November midterms. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for the institutional reforms needed to control federal spending to pass through Congress.

- Now reform your ways and your actions and obey the Lord your God. Then the Lord will relent and not bring the disaster he has pronounced against you. (Jer. 26:13)

7. Muslim group sues to block Trump terrorism report - Washington Times

Two anti-Trump organizations filed a lawsuit Monday arguing that a government report earlier this year linking immigrants to most of the country's terrorism cases since 2001 is so misleading that it violates federal law. The request seeks to recruit federal judges to police the accuracy of the administration, in what - if it's successful - could become a model for anti-Trump groups to push back on a president they see as having a tenuous connection to the truth. The January report concluded that 73 percent of the 549 people convicted of international terrorism between 2001 and 2016 were foreign born. Activists were infuriated by the report at the time, and now two groups - Muslim Advocates and Democracy Forward - have sued, saying the investigation "misleadingly inflates the threat they pose to the United States," and "inaccurately" focuses on Muslims.

At stake is the Information Quality Act, which lays out the goal of government information being accurate, and creates a process for the public to demand corrections, with the agencies required to respond to those requests within 60 days. Neither the Justice Department nor Homeland Security, which co-authored the report, responded to the groups' requests, they said. The groups want the courts to declare the report inaccurate and issue an order banning them from disseminating it. The report has been widely used by the Trump administration, which pointed to the findings in calling for stricter immigration and travel controls. (Read more)

- Father, we pray public policy regarding immigration and terrorism will be based on the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

- And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:32)

8. Trump signs order pushing work requirements for safety net programs - Washington Examiner

President Trump signed an executive order Tuesday promoting work requirements for safety-net programs, a change most likely to affect Medicaid, food stamps and housing benefits. The order would encourage agencies to strengthen work requirements for people who are able to work. As with previous broad orders signed by Trump, it calls for agencies to review all work requirements and report back, setting up possible changes in regulations. Bremberg said that the order is meant to ensure that people in need continue to receive assistance while eliminating the "stagnation" created by government dependency. Despite low unemployment rates, "our country still struggles from nearly record high welfare enrollments," he noted.

House Speaker Paul Ryan has long advocated for overhauling the nation's welfare system to promote work. While major legislation is unlikely this Congress, much of the conservative agenda could be carried out administratively by Trump. While most government programs, including cash welfare, include work requirements, conservatives have argued that the requirements are too loose, especially for able-bodied workers. Congressional Democrats have fought GOP attempts to impose work requirements, casting it as an effort to punish poor people. The two parties currently are clashing over adding work requirements for food stamps in the upcoming Farm Bill. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for the restoration of the work ethic in our nation. May the consciences of people be convicted, motivating them to change.

- For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either. (2 Thessalonians 3:10)

9. David Hogg Is Working With Obama On A Shocking New Plan To Confiscate Guns - Great American Daily

Anti-gun activist David Hogg is doubling down. He's promoting a "Town Hall for Our Lives," where anti-gun activists will hold rallies disguised as town halls in [435] Congressional Districts across America. If the Congressman of that district doesn't show up - and only Democrats have confirmed to appear - gun grabbers will berate an empty chair and accuse them of "cowardice." It's a classic Saul Alinsky community organizing tactic. Breitbart reports:

"On the heels of last month's anti-gun, anti-Trump March for Our Lives adult-funded and backed protest by teen survivors of the Florida school shooting that killed 17 people at a Florida high school, another left-wing event is planned for Saturday. The event is organized by the Town Hall Project website, started by former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer Jimmy Dahman last year. That entity is now connected with and promoting a "teen-led" series of meetings with members of Congress or candidates running against them over this week, culminating on Saturday with the Town Hall for Our Lives. The website is backed and funded by a coalition of leftists, including Tom Steyer's NextGen America, the Center for American Progress (CAP), Indivisible, and former President Barack Obama's Organizing for Action, among others." (Read more)

- Father, we pray this movement, like the caravan of illegals from South America, will backfire. We pray the only impact will be energizing and motivating conservatives to engage and vote.

- For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. (Matthew 7:2)

10. 'Bad News for the Planet': Environmentalists, Farmers Terrified as Bayer-Monsanto Merger Gets Green Light - Telesur

The takeover would create a firm which would have control over a quarter of the world's seed and pesticides market. Bayer's market share went up nearly 5 percent Monday amid reports that the United States Department of Justice would approve its purchase of Monsanto in a deal estimated to be worth US$62.5 billion. The merger between Bayer, a German-based company, and Monsanto would create a company which controls over a quarter of the world's seed and pesticide market.

The two firms individually have caused immense harm to the environment, and a merger, which the environmentalists have been protesting for months would make them eminently stronger and harder to fight. "The Trump administration has already approved a merger between former rivals Dow and DuPont and has signed off on the takeover of Swiss pesticide giant Syngenta by ChemChina. If Monsanto-Bayer gets approved as well, just three corporations will dominate the majority of the world's seed and pesticide markets, giving them enormous power to continue poisoning the planet at the expense of its inhabitants," Brown added. "Before 1990, there were 600 or more small, independent seed businesses globally, many of them family-owned. By 2009, only about 100 survived, and seed prices had more than doubled," Brown pointed out adding: "Reining in these powerful conglomerates is more than just a question of economics. It may be a question of the survival of life on this planet." (Read more)

- Father, You are the Creator of every seed and plant, and Your creation is good. We repent for corrupting the seed and pray for Your help to restore Your creation.

- The land produced vegetation-all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Their seeds produced plants and trees of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:12)

The choice

I was helping a friend of mine yesterday with a project at his house. He had Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage and Mark Levine on the internet radio (yes, it was a long project). I hadn't listened to these commentators for a long time. While all three were talking about different topics in their respective programs, it occurred to me that our American republic is in extreme danger by the very people who we elect, those who are major contributors to the campaigns of the people we elect, and the apathy among the public who elect these people. While most would say this an obvious observation, and it may be, there is no safe harbor in either political party, and humankind is drifting farther from the Creator every second.

Think about the endless wars our country has been in. Has there been a time of peace in your lifetime? The blood of our sons and daughters is spilled overseas everyday, and has been for decades. Is war so profitable that it is worth investing the lives of our children year after year, decade after decade? It appears so. These profiteers wrap their marketing in the cloak of patriotism and our youth are inspired by the call to duty, but where is the real threat? From Vietnam to Grenada to Kosovo to the Middle East's various hotspots, is there ever a victory? Do we ever reap the dividends of peace from the seeds of violence? Who is profiting so much on the bodies of our children that this never-ending cycle cannot be broken?

Here at home, we have allowed the progression of apathy to determine our future. We have been lied to, manipulated, deceived and shook down by politicians who line their pockets with our hard-earned money and clothe themselves in power. This has reached such a critical mass that draining the swamp of such cunning dwellers is nearly impossible. We have before us a media that is communist, a political party that is communist, another political party that is no less than socialist, a legal system that is corrupt to the point that people are not equal as the scale of justice is watched from beneath the blind. We are spied on. We are no longer free to speak what's on our minds because we are judged harshly.

This can be overwhelming. We as a people need to make a choice. To me, the choice is Christ. If we choose him and walk in his ways and truly make disciples, we have participated in allowing the Lord to use us to change things for good. Yes, there is a conspiracy. The conspirator is the devil. His plan is to steal, kill and destroy, and he uses those who open themselves to him. The answer is Christ. The Messiah is the only choice to overcome evil. We are the good warriors. We have the holy calling. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, "For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." We can choose to stand in power the Lord has given us and turn things around a heart at a time.

​​​​​Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Classic Hymns


"O Lord Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in You." (Psalm 84:11-12)


When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.


Trust and obey, for there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.


Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.


But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.


Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet.
Or we'll walk by His side in the way.
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.

About the Hymn:

This song gives a sim­ple, clear ex­pla­na­tion of liv­ing the Christ­ian life. The ti­tle ex­press­ion was used in a test­i­mo­ny meet­ing, fol­low­ing an evan­gel­is­tic cru­sade in Brock­ton, Mass­a­chu­setts, by Dwight L. Mo­ody. A young man stood to speak, and it soon be­came clear he knew lit­tle Christ­ian doc­trine. But he fin­ished by say­ing, "I'm not quite sure-but I'm go­ing to trust, and I'm go­ing to obey." Dan­iel Town­er, who was in the meet­ing, jot­ted down the words, and gave them to John Sam­mis, who de­vel­oped the lyr­ics from them.

Japan: Five people injured after strong earthquake rattles Shimane Prefecture

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.1 hit Shimane Prefecture early Monday, injuring five people. Authorities warned of the possibility of another powerful temblor within the next week or so.

According to the Meteorological Agency, the quake, which also caused a blackout and disrupted water supplies, occurred at 1:32 a.m. at a depth of 12 km. It registered upper 5 on the Japanese seismic intensity scale of 7.

Four people were injured in the city of Oda, including a 17-year-old boy who fell from his bed, local officials said. A woman in her 70s in the adjacent city of Izumo sustained an injury in her leg after also falling out of her bed.

Some 100 households lost water and 50 households had their electricity cut off in Oda. The Shimane Prefectural Government requested the dispatch of a Self-Defense Forces unit to assist in distributing water to affected residents.

Officials confirmed damage to some buildings and cracks in roads.

No abnormalities were found at the Shimane nuclear power plant, according to its operator, Chugoku Electric Power Co.

"When the quake occurred, I couldn't stand on my own and had to hold on to a column," said Isamu Yamashita, an 81-year-old man who evacuated to an elementary school in Oda. "I can't return home because I'm still scared of possible aftershocks."

A major hospital in the city was forced to stop most of its outpatient services after a pipe in a water storage tank was damaged. The hospital received emergency water supplies from the city so it could stay open. (Japan Times)
