Syrian Crisis: Update

Syrian Crisis: Update

1. 'America is running away': Syrian withdrawal turns chaotic - World Israel News

It also seemed there had been little U.S. preparation for how to deal with a subsequent invasion by Turkey.

> > > To read this detailed article, outlining the events of the past two weeks, since President Trump called for the withdrawal of our troops from Syria, go here.

2. Erdogan talks Syria with Putin and issues warning to Kurds -

Russian President Vladimir Putin has welcomed his Turkish counterpart for talks on the future of the Syrian conflict. Moscow is seeking to cement its role as a power broker in the Middle East.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan began talks on Syria with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, on Tuesday. "I believe this meeting will benefit the region, which is going through critical days," Erdogan said.

Putin expressed hope that the close ties between their countries would "facilitate solutions" to the Syrian conflict.

Before the meeting, Erdogan warned Kurdish YPG militia to withdraw from areas in Syria ahead of the expiry of a five-day US-brokered ceasefire. The Kurdish YPG militia was expected to initially withdraw from a 120-kilometer (75-mile) strip of the border with Turkey as part of the deal. The ceasefire ends at 10 p.m. local time (1900 UTC). "Today is the last day for all terrorists in the region to leave," said Erdogan. Turkey wants to control a larger safe zone, extending along a 400-kilometer-long strip. (Read more)

3. Video: Erdogan arrives for Putin meeting - AFP

Russian President Vladimir Putin meets his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan to discuss the situation in northern Syria, where Erdogan has vowed to continue an offensive against Kurdish fighters. "The situation in the region is very severe," Putin told Erdogan ahead of talks in the Russian city of Sochi, hoping that the good rapport between Russia and Turkey "will let us find an answer to even the most difficult questions." IMAGES of the meeting. (View the video here.)

4. Mike Pompeo: Trump ready to use force against Turkey 'if needed'- Jerusalem Post

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defended the Trump administration's decision to withdraw US troops from northern Syria but added that if needed, they would be prepared to use military force against Turkey, even though "we prefer peace."

In an interview that aired on CNBC on Monday, Pompeo was asked how the recent move by the administration was consistent with his previous criticism of former US President Barack Obama. In the past, the secretary attacked Obama for failing to act over the violation of the red-line the president himself had drawn against Syrian leader Bashar Assad's use of chemical weapons.

5. A Report from the Ground: No Ceasefire Here - David Eubanks

There is no ceasefire here - yes we were able to go and get the wounded people and others out (19, 20th Oct.) from Ras Al Ein and we thank God and you all for that but every day the Turk supported FSA attacked SDF positions - and last night (21 Oct.) . . . here is our report:

The FSA / Turkish proxy force attacking SDF now 4 kilometers south of Ras Al Ein / Sari Kani - we are taking heavy machine gun fire from FSA Gun jeeps (and also they have two captured Humvees ) and now there are dismounted fighters on the assault shooting at our medical team - as we move forward to find the SDF wounded. We can't find them yet and pray we can. We have FSA troops on three sides of us now but were able to get out and will keep trying.

Earlier today there were three other attacks by the FSA - there is no ceasefire here.

We were pinned down by an FSA attack but got out and then at night (21 Oct.) carefully we infiltrated back in and around the FSA and found the wounded missing man who was crawling away - we were able to get him out and treated his wound - he survived - this is just one example - and the only thing that has stopped in our area is air strikes - so not a ceasefire - now around us SDF falling back and I see Assad Regime troops and vehicles coming into Tel Tamir and also going west of Tel Tamir is coming in to face the FSA and Turks.

6. Syria crisis: Here's how to help suffering Christians, according to Open Doors CEO - Christian Post

The CEO of a persecution watchdog has opened up about the precarious future of northeastern Syria's ancient Christian communities and urged believers in the West to fulfill their God-given mandate to take action and support those persecuted for their faith.

David Curry, head of the non-denominational ministry Open Doors, told The Christian Post that an estimated 40,000 to 50,000 Christians are in peril after Turkish forces launched an attack on the Kurdish-held territory of northeast Syria on October 9. The invasion began after President Donald Trump agreed to remove U.S. troops from the area at the request of Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

"We're in a real mode of crisis management here," Curry said. "These Christians living in the northern part of Syria who have faced so much trouble over the last few years are now facing more crisis. The Christian community in Syria has been under massive pressure both from the civil war and being caught in the crossfire between ISIS and the Assad regime. Now, you have Turkey, which is using a localized terrorist group Al Nusra to clear out these communities. They don't like Christians. They have a Muslim extremist agenda."

"You have the possibility and great threat of losing these Christian communities, which will have a rippling effect," he added. (Read more)

- We continue, with you, to pray in the Spirit over all events now occurring in northeast Syria, as the Turkish FSA troops continue their campaign of genocide against the Kurds and the Syrian Christians. Our Lord God is "brooding" over this crisis; hovering over each one involved, seeking to release His shalom over all. We pray in agreement for His will to be done in this hour. Amen.

- "Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom." (Psalm 45:6)

Focus on Israel

1. US Army chooses Israeli system to protect the lives of tank crews -

(October 18, 2019 / JNS) In recent days, Israeli defense corporation Rafael made a dramatic announcement, stating that it delivered on time the first batch of Trophy Active Protection System to the U.S. Army.

Trophy, a system that was first deployed by the Israel Defense Forces in 2011 and which has intercepted many threats fired at Israeli armored vehicles, will be eventually be installed on-board four American M1 main battle tank brigades, for both the U.S. Army and Marine Corps.

The fact that the world's most powerful military chose an Israeli active protection system to protect the lives of its tank crews is historic.

2. Fix the West Bank fence, local leaders urge Netanyahu - Israel National News

The heads of local municipalities in the center and north are pleading with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to tackle a real threat to citizens living close to the West Bank security barrier after multiple gaps in the fence were found.

The request by the heads of seven local councils says: "We are disturbed and worried about a severe security breach in our communities and against our residents, given the number and scale of the breaches in the separation fence, with infuriatingly easy crossings receiving with no answer or response from the military."

Construction on the fence began in 2002 during the wave of deadly terror attacks of the Second Intifada. The barrier, which is made of concrete in some areas and wire fencing in others, runs along the border and into the West Bank to include settlements.

The local leaders stress that while the erection of the fence initially created a sense of security, the barrier has now lost its deterrence to the extent that it is failing to prevent terrorist attacks.

3. Netanyahu condemns settler violence after IDF soldier injured -

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that violence toward military personnel would not be tolerated.

Netanyahu spoke following an incident overnight Saturday in which IDF forces operating near the settlement of Yitzhar in Samaria were forced to fire warning shots when a group of approximately 30 "hilltop youth" who live in and around the settlement began throwing rocks at the troops, injuring one lightly.

"I am asking that we stand by IDF soldiers and commanders, who work day and night to protect the security of all citizens of Israel, without exception," Netanyahu said. "I absolutely condemn any attack on IDF soldiers. There will be no tolerance toward lawbreakers who raise a hand against our soldiers," the prime minister concluded.

4. In 2nd attack in less than 48 hours, settlers throw rocks at troops near Yitzhar - Times of Israel

Less than 48 hours after clashes between security forces and settlers near the northern West Bank settlement of Yitzhar, a group of 10 settlers threw rocks and bottles of paint at Border Police in the same area on Monday evening.

One soldier was reportedly hit by a rock but did not require medical treatment, and the army dispersed the rioters using stun grenades, according to Hebrew media reports.

On Sunday, a Border Police battalion was ordered to take up position near the Yitzhar settlement as a deterrent against further violent activities by residents of the outposts in the area, the Kan public broadcaster reported. The border guards made a similar deployment in April 2014, after a string of attacks and acts of vandalism from the Yitzhar settlement and surrounding outposts, including one case in which residents attacked an IDF encampment.

5. Trump Says Israel, Jordan Asked Him to Keep US Troops in Syria - Jewish Press

US President Donald Trump says he is still committed to withdrawing all American troops from Syria - as he promised on the campaign trail three years ago - but he's been asked by Israel and Jordan to leave some forces there.

Speaking with reporters at a cabinet meeting held Monday (Oct. 21) at the White House, the president said he has been asked by the two US allies to leave a "small number" of American forces in southeastern Syria. The US has also taken steps to secure Syrian oil for the Kurds.

"We've been asked by Israel and Jordan to leave a small number of troops in a totally different section of Syria, near Jordan, and close to Israel," Trump said. "That's a totally different section, that's a totally different mindset. So we have a small group there, and we've secured the oil. Other than that, there's no reason for [more American troops] in our opinion. And again, the Kurds are going to be watching - we're working with the Kurds."

The Daily Brief

1. Jimmy Carter Hospitalized After Fall at Georgia Home - Breitbart

Former President Jimmy Carter on Monday evening was hospitalized after a fall at his Plains, Georgia, home. Carter, 95, is receiving treatment at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center for a minor pelvic fracture. The former president is in "good spirits and is looking forward to recovering at home," the Carter Center said in a statement.

This is the third time Carter has fallen in recent months. He first fell in the spring and required hip replacement surgery. Carter fell again this month and despite receiving 14 stitches, traveled the next day to Nashville, Tennessee, to rally volunteers and help build a Habitat for Humanity home.

Carter is the oldest living former president in U.S. history. He and 92-year-old Rosalynn recently became the longest-married first couple, surpassing George and Barbara Bush, with more than 73 years of marriage. (Read more)

-Father, we pray President Carter will make a full recovery and use his influence to awaken young Democrats to the importance of Biblical and family values.

-They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, "The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him." (Psalm 92:14-15)

2. The Supreme Court Is Poised to Strike Down a Major Obama-Era Agency - National Review

Last week, the Supreme Court agreed to hear what could end up being the most consequential case of the term - in a year where the justices are already taking up employment discrimination, the Second Amendment, abortion, DACA, school choice, and other issues.

In Seila Law LLC v. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau CFPB), the Court will decide the constitutionality of an agency long criticized not just by the business community and free-market-oriented politicians but also by constitutional scholars who see major problems with its structure as a single-director agency seemingly unaccountable to the president or anyone else.

The CFPB is the most independent of independent agencies, with power to make rules, enforce them, adjudicate violations in its own administrative hearings, and punish wrongdoers. The CFPB doesn't even need Congress to approve its budget, because its funding requests are rubber-stamped by another agency insulated from political control: the Federal Reserve. (Read more)

-Father, we pray the Supreme Court will invalidate the unconstitutional Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

-You shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land and dwell in it, for I have given you the land to possess. (Numbers 33:53)

3. 'Triple hearsay': White House blasts William Taylor testimony - Washington Times

The White House is slamming testimony from former U.S. Ambassador William Taylor as part of the House impeachment inquiry "triple hearsay" and insisting that President Donald Trump "has done nothing wrong."

Press secretary Stephanie Grisham released a statement Tuesday after Taylor told lawmakers that Trump had made clear that vital military aid to Ukraine hinged on the country's new president making a public statement that he was opening an investigation into a company linked to the family of Trump's potential 2020 Democratic rival Joe Biden and the 2016 election.

Grisham insists "there was no quid pro quo." She says, "Today was just more triple hearsay and selective leaks from the Democrats' politically-motivated, closed door, secretive hearings." And she is slamming the inquiry as "nonsense" and "a coordinated smear campaign." (Read more)

-Father God, we pray for the complete exposure of the efforts to remove and impeach President Trump.

-For the king trusts in the Lord, and through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved. (Psalm 21:7)

4. Democrats Seek to Withhold Pay to Force Impeachment Cooperation - Epoch Times

Executive branch officials who interfere with colleagues cooperating with the impeachment inquiry could face the prospect of lost paychecks, if House Democrats impose an obscure provision that is routinely included in federal spending bills.

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), who is a member of the House Committee on Appropriations, reportedly invoked the provision in an Oct. 8 letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo protesting the blocking of U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland from appearing before the House Select Committee on Intelligence, in connection with the impeachment inquiry.

Brian Darling, who is a former senior adviser to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), said "this will be yet another court battle," because House Democrats know the Trump administration won't cooperate, so "this seems like an empty threat that further exposes the limitations of the Congress in forcing executive branch officials to testify, because our founders intended to have a separation of powers between those two branches of government." (Read more)

-Father, we pray no one will be forced to give testimony under the pressure of having their salaries withheld.

-May those who say to me, "Aha! Aha!" be appalled at their own shame. (Psalm 40:15)

5. Durham scrutinizing four key figures in Trump-Russia investigation - Washington Examiner

The secretive Justice Department inquiry into the Trump-Russia investigation's origins now includes former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok, and British ex-spy Christopher Steele.

Durham's focus on the actions taken by specific individuals makes his mission look like it could transform into a criminal investigation. And the line of questioning Durham has taken with potential witnesses - some in line with claims made by President Trump and other Republicans - puts his efforts into sharper focus. Durham has not yet interviewed Strzok, McCabe, former FBI Director James Comey, or former FBI general counsel James Baker.

Durham wants to know why the FBI used unverified information in its filings with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, according to the New York Times. Sources reportedly said Durham expressed skepticism about the use of Steele's dossier and worried the FBI exaggerated Steele's importance to obtain the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants. (Read more)

-Father God, we ask You to protect John Durham and his team as they uncover and compile the facts regarding the targeting of the Trump campaign.

-Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. (Ephesians 5:11)

6. Grassley Suspects 'Deep State' Responsible for Delay in FISA Abuse Report - Daily Signal

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, expressed frustration Monday at a months-long delay in the release of the Justice Department inspector general's report on possible FBI surveillance abuse against the Trump campaign, questioning whether the "deep state" has somehow slowed the release of the document.

Michael Horowitz told several congressional committees on June 25 that the investigation was nearing completion. He submitted the report to the Justice Department and FBI for a declassification review on Sept. 13. Fox News reported in October that disagreements between the FBI and Justice Department about redactions in the report have delayed the release of the document.

Grassley has been one of only a handful of Senate Republicans to push for answers from the FBI and Justice Department about the Steele dossier and other surveillance against the Trump campaign. He was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee until earlier this year, when he took over as head of the Senate Finance Committee. (Read more)

-Father, we ask You to remove all barriers in the way of releasing this report to the public.

-For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility (Ephesians 2:14)

7. Senate Dems signal they'll support domestic spending package - The Hill

Top Senate Democrats signaled on Monday that they will support moving a package of four noncontroversial government spending bills, breaking a months-long stalemate.

The government is funded through Nov. 21. To avoid a shutdown, lawmakers will need to pass either the 12 individual appropriations bills or another continuing resolution (CR). The Senate has passed none of the 12 bills, while the House has passed 10.

Shelby urged his colleagues to support taking up the package. "These bills provide funding for domestic priorities across the nation that play a significant role in maintaining our economic prosperity, and each received unanimous support in committee. We need to consider and pass this package expeditiously so we can take up the defense package," Shelby said. (Read more)

-Father, we pray these spending bills will be processed quickly for the benefit of all the people.

-Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. (Psalm 95:6-7)

8. Jury rules against dad trying to save his 7-year-old from gender 'transition' - LifeSite News

A jury in Dallas, Texas has ruled against Jeffrey Younger, the father who is trying to protect his seven-year-old son, James, from chemical castration via a gender "transition." This means James' mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, will be able to continue "transitioning" him into "Luna," and now has full authority to start him on puberty blockers and eventually cross-sex hormones.

The jury's decision likely means that Mr. Younger will be required to "affirm" James as a girl, despite his religious and moral objections, and will also be forced to take a class on transgenderism. Judge Kim Cooks will read her ruling on possession, child support, and Dr. Georgulas' other requests at 1:30 p.m. CST on Wednesday.

Mr. Younger is worried about Dr. Georgulas forcing a lifetime of misery on their son. Expert witnesses testified to a child's inability to fully comprehend the potential side effects of such [gender transition] therapy, such as permanent infertility, inability to ever naturally engage in sexual relations, and a decreased lifespan. (Read more)

-Father God, we ask You to divinely intervene on the behalf of James and his family. We pray his mother will repent and accept James as the boy You created him to be.

-So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)

9. British Parliament finally approves Boris Johnson's Brexit bill - but moments later votes down three-day timetable - FoxNews

The United Kingdom's divorce from the European Union passed one major hurdle Tuesday when Parliament lawmakers approved Boris Johnson's Brexit bill but hit a roadblock moments later when a three-day timetable was voted down. The vote likely made it impossible for Johnson to fulfill his vow to take Britain out of the EU by the Oct. 31 deadline.

The votes came hours after Johnson threatened to put the brakes on the withdrawal bill and call for a snap election before Christmas if lawmakers continued to stonewall his push to pass the legislation before the deadline. Following the defeat of the timetable vote, Johnson made no mention of an election.

Johnson negotiated and agreed on his new plan with European leaders last week - despite repeatedly saying the United Kingdom would leave by the end of October, with or without a deal. Last Saturday, he failed to win Parliament's backing for it, forcing Johnson to begrudgingly ask the EU for a three-month delay to Britain's departure. (Read more)

-Father God, we pray the people of Britain will turn to You in prayer and repentance to help them successfully leave the European Union.

-Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler. (Proverbs 6:5)

10. Iran Cited by International Body for Failing to Address Terror Financing - FreeBeacon

Iran has again failed to implement international agreements to crack down on money laundering and terror financing, according to the Financial Action Task Force, or FATF, an inter-governmental body that oversees economic reformation.

The Islamic Republic has so far failed to implement key portions of the reformation plan, prompting FATF to cite Tehran and threaten to reimpose measures meant to isolate the Islamic Republic's economy starting in 2020.

"This signals to the global banking sector and the wider market that it is not safe to do business with Iran," she said. "It also means that Iran is more interested in continuing its illicit money-laundering and terror financing than integrating into the global financial system. Tehran will have a difficult time convincing its own people that they, not Iran's terrorism, are the government's priority." (Read more)

-Father, we pray all sources of illicit monies will be cut off from the nation of Iran.

-As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob, who says, "I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up." (Psalm 75:9-10)

IPC Prayer Alert

International prayer concerns: important issues this week!

Published by International Prayer Council

This is an important week to be in prayer and the Lord will utilize our prayers to make a real difference:

1. Lebanon - A friend that we have worked with in past years writes: "It's the third day of protests and the number of people in the streets is increasing where about 2 million people are camping in the streets all over the land. (1.1 million just in downtown where the seat of power is). The results of these protests could lead to a decrease of Hezbollah power in Lebanon. This might not happen very peacefully but Lebanon needs to get free from this evil grip. We don't know what tomorrow will bring but we are increasing prayer, demanding freedom and release from Iran's dominance that is keeping Lebanon in bondage. For those of you who don't really know what this means, it is that Hezbollah is politically and military holding the government. They can decide to start a war with Israel whenever they want to even if the Lebanese government doesn't want to, they can get involved in the Syria war inspite of the Lebanese government not wanting to be involved etc. (Read more)

2. Hong Kong - Please keep this strategic and beautiful city in your prayers as the demonstrations continue after four months with both sides seemingly unwilling to compromise. Violence causing injuries to people and property has been part of what is happening there along with reports of police brutality against the protestors who have largely wanted to use their constitutional rights to demonstrate in a peaceful manner. Pray for reconciliation and a win-win solution to be reached that will keep Hong Kong free from the dictatorial controls being experienced by many in the Chinese mainland.

3. ALERT! (As reported on yesterday's Brief)

Thousands of witches plan Halloween spell to bind President Trump - "A week before Halloween, opponents of President Trump will gather in the thousands to cast a spell on the administration to prevent the administration from harming the country.

Participants in the ritual, which has been performed regularly since Trump's inauguration, are taking particular encouragement from Democrats' recent launch of an impeachment inquiry, which they see as a sign their efforts are working. "I'm willing to go on record and say it's working," said Michael Hughes, the self-described magical thinker and activist who came up with the ritual.

The spell is crafted "to bind Donald Trump and all those who abet him," and is supposed to be performed during every waning crescent moon until Trump is removed from office. While he said it is difficult to calculate how many people participated at the first event in 2017, Hughes said it was "definitely in the thousands" and spread "across the world." He noted that several thousand people continue to participate in the ritual every month.

Hughes' spell comes at a time in which witchcraft is on the rise in the United States. From 1990 to 2008, the number of individuals practicing Wicca, a form of witchcraft, increased from about 8,000 to about 340,000. In 2014, the number of Wiccans in the United States may have been as high as 1.5 million,based on a Pew survey." (October 18, Washington Examiner) > > > For more details, go here.

A word of caution: Before reading this material, ask our Lord to cover your mind in the Blood of the Lamb, and, if possible, receive Communion next.

Let's pray for the protection of President Trump and all in his administration who are doing their best to restore America and are the most pro-Christian, pro-prayer, pro-religious freedom, and pro-life in history. Let's also pray in the authority that the Lord has given us for the overthrow of every incantation and wicked scheme directed by these occultists and that they will be set free from the delusion and grip of the evil one.
Thanks so much for your prayers of faith and authority led by the Spirit for His breakthrough in these important concerns.

Angel Armies Go to War!

Angel Armies Go to War!

Sound the Shofar -- Guard Your Gates!

Shalom Praying Friends,

Praise Report! Its good to get praise reports when you've prayed for an expected outcome. Last week I participated in a live nationwide prayer call with other intercessors where we prayed and then sent out the Shofar Sounder to Move the Mountain. Our prayers to break the bands of impeachment constricting President Trump were answered. Within less than an hour of releasing those prayers, Nancy Pelosi announced she would not call a vote for the president's impeachment. A day later Congressman Elijah Cummings who spearheaded the impeachment drive against the President passed away and more than 300 protestors gathered on the steps of Congress demanding an end to the impeachment inquiry and for the Congress to do the job they were elected to do, legislate. Also the next day despite threats against the President at his Dallas rally, his life was preserved and suspects were taken into custody.

Please understand, I do not rejoice in the death of Elijah Cummings nor do I judge him but our actions and our words will bear judgement by the righteous King of Heaven when the time comes. And while none of us can know if the Lord judged him for his words against the appointed leader of our nation, we must always consider that except for the grace of God we might be in a position and speak words that have great consequence. Always consider what we say and the actions we take. Once released, who can recapture them?
So thank You Lord God for Your hearing of our prayers and responding in such a confirming manner and so swiftly. More praise as fake news media stations are beginning to turn on one another in accusation and a house divided against itself will fall. With multiple agencies pointing the finger of "poor journalism" its like dirty laundry being turned out on a daily basis. When you see it, recognize it. Project Veritas recognized it and released undercover video showing CNN production supervisor, Gerald Sisnette wishing For Trump's Death, 'Hopefully He Dies Soon.' So much for unbiased reporting. Extreme left liberal Barbra Streisand released a cartoon depicting the murder of President Trump with the heel of Nancy Pelosi's shoe. Actions Matter! None of this is a joke and there will be consequences for speech and actions, no matter what. Make wise choices in life. Guard your gates!
Meanwhile from Israel: A Channel 12 news anchor quoted from the Jewish prayer for the dead in reference to Netanyahu's career. By World Israel News Staff Last week Channel 12 News anchor Oded Ben-Ami found himself the brunt of criticism after he said a line from the Mourner's Kaddish, the Jewish prayer traditionally said in memory of the dead - only he did so in connection with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's career. Ben-Ami made his remarks in a discussion with the channel's political commentator Amnon Abramovich on his Wednesday broadcast.

Today it was announced from Jerusalem that Benjamin Netanyahu had relinquished the power to form a coalition government back to President Rivlin who in turn will now give the permission to his adversary Benny Gantz. Gantz is a retired IDF general and extreme left liberal who is being advised in his seeking office by the advisers Barack Obama sent to Israel in a prior election to undermine Netanyahu. Words matter. Guard your gates!

Now some good news! The State of Texas is spearheading an anti-trust suit against the major media outlets such as Google, Twitter, Facebook etc. for blocking conservative free speech. Attorney Generals for every state in the union except California, which is home to Silicon Valley and Alabama have joined the suit. Probably by now Alabama is turning towards joining. The attorney general for Texas, Ken Paxton, is a Godly man and so is Texas Governor Gregg Abbott. The voice of the righteous are being released!

See negative words and attitudes are like the leaven of the Pharisees. A pinch of yeast and before you know it the dough blows up before your eyes. All it needs is a little warmth and to be covered up. BUT GOD!

. . . Guard the gates of your eyes! Guard the gates of your ears! Guard the gates of your mouth! Guard the gates of your cities and nation! Do you guard them? Do you regularly pray on the streets where you live, for your neighborhood? your county? your state? your nation? your pastors? your church? If homelessness and drugs and other high crimes are the issues around you now and elected officials are corrupt, I suggest that people and your local churches are not praying enough or regularly, if at all. Instead let's guard our gates!

"Thou hast the words of eternal life." (John 6:68)


I need Thee, precious Jesus, For I am full of sin; My soul is dark and guilty, My heart is dead within. I need the cleansing fountain Where I can always flee, The blood of Christ most precious, The sinner's perfect plea.
I need Thee, precious Jesus, I need a friend like Thee, A friend to soothe and pity, A friend to care for me. I need the heart of Jesus To feel each anxious care, To tell my every trouble, And all my sorrows share.

I need Thee, precious Jesus, I need Thee, day by day, To fill me with Thy fullness, To lead me on my way; I need Thy Holy Spirit, To teach me what I am, To show me more of Jesus, To point me to the Lamb.

I need Thee, precious Jesus, And hope to see Thee soon, Encircled with the rainbow And seated on Thy throne. There, with Thy blood bought children, My joy shall ever be, To sing Thy praises, Jesu, To gaze, O Lord, on Thee.

Power blackouts likely again for hundreds of thousands of Californians this week

LOS ANGELES - Less than two weeks after it was slammed for cutting off power to hundreds of thousands of customers to prevent wildfires, California's biggest utility said Monday it will likely have to do it again this week.

Pacific Gas & Electric Corp., or PG&E, said at a hastily arranged late afternoon news conference that it was calling, emailing and texting more than 200,000 customers in 15 Northern California counties to alert them that their power could be shut off for as long as 48 hours, starting Wednesday.

A power "customer" can be a single residence or a large business; the standard conversion utilities use assesses 2½ people per customer, meaning as many as a half-million people could be affected Wednesday. Most of the impact will be felt in the Sierra Foothills and the northern part of the San Francisco Bay area, the utility said.

PG&E said high winds and dry conditions would lead to a critical risk of wildfires sparked by faulty electric lines. Those same conditions plunged as many as 2 million people into darkness two weeks ago in rolling blackouts, which PG&E called a public safety power shutoff.

Californians from Gov. Gavin Newsom on down slammed PG&E for that blackout, especially as it, like other utilities, has a policy of not reimbursing customers for lost business, housing alternatives or spoiled food and medicines.

To make matters worse, heavy user volume crashed PG&E's website for long periods, keeping customers from getting critical blackout and safety updates. Newsom said he was "outraged" by PG&E's performance, while state regulators called it "unacceptable."

PG&E said it was setting up a separate dedicated website to handle the extra load this time. (NBC News) Read more.

Archaeologists Confirm: Pontius Pilate Built Jerusalem's 'Pilgrimage Road,' between 31 and 40 AD

[] Archaeologists now believe that Jerusalem's "Pilgrimage Road" was built by none other than Pontius Pilate, the infamous Roman governor of Judea.

The ancient road in the City of David, which was preserved under the ashes of the Roman sack of Jerusalem in 70 [AD], was used by pilgrims to ascend from the Siloam Pool to the Second Temple, according to historical descriptions.

According to research published on Tuesday in the Journal of the Institute of Archaeology of Tel Aviv University, the more than 100 coins found beneath the ancient road prove it must have been completed between 31 and 40 [AD], a period mostly covered by Pilate's governorship.

According to Dr. Donald Ariel, an archaeologist and coin expert with the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), "Dating using coins is very exact. As some coins have the year in which they were minted on them, what that means is that if a coin with a date on it is found beneath the street, the street had to be built in the same year or after that coin had been minted."

To further narrow things down, Ariel explained that "statistically, coins minted some 10 years later are the most common coins in Jerusalem," and that because these coins are not found under the road, "the street was built before their appearance, in other words only in the time of Pilate."

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. Our primary purpose is to offer intercession on site for the members of Congress and their staffs each day that the Senate and the House of Representatives are in session; and our chief prayer focus is that "God's will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." [Matthew 6:10].

Because Jesus Christ has shed His blood for all, we, too, pray for ALL, in a nonpartisan manner. Also, because the scriptures indicate that "the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 4:17), we are confident that fervent prayer, offered in the halls of the highest chambers of government in our land, can avail much for America. Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes those who feel called to join us, engaging in this strategic work of intercession for our nation: "For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God." [Romans 13:1]


Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes all who wish to pray for our leaders to join us in prayer for our nation. You may sign up to receive our alerts by sending an email to us at requesting that your name be added to our list of subscribers.
