The Tulsa City Council sadly voted 5-3 to grant a permit to the anti-Jesus organizers of the Tulsa "Holiday" Parade~ which 70 years had been called the "Tulsa Christmas Parade of Lights" until they banned the word "Christmas" from the title. Heroic Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) took a stand by refusing to march in the parade~ which he had marched in for decades~ until they restore the word "Christmas" to the title. Sign our FREE petition~ and we’ll also forward to all 8 city council members. Let’s boycott the organizers~ and sign a FREE petition to honor Jesus Christ! Forward this email to your Oklahoma friends!

Let Us Pray. Almighty God~ we pray for the judges now hearing an appeal about Proposition 8~ which may ultimately impact and redefine the institution of traditional marriage in all fifty states. We pray for Judges Reinhardt~ Smith and Hawkins who have now heard this appeal and will make the final decision. From James 1:5 we pray that You would grant Your wisdom to each judge~ and cause them to rule justly and in accordance with our Constitution and the will of the people in California who twice voted against sod omite “marriage.” In Jesus Name~ Amen.

Victory! Homosexual Bonus Pay Banned in Texas
Let Us Pray. Almighty God~ we thank you for the work of Pastor Tom Brown who organized a ballot measure in El Paso Texas~ which passed with 55% of voters voting to deny homosexuals special benefits in the workplace. Now the sod omite community is upset because they lost their bonus pay~ so they’re now falsely claiming traditionally married couples will be penalized. Lord~ we praise You for this victory and ask You would bless those who stood for righteousness~ because we know from Proverbs 29:2 that when the righteous rule~ people rejoice~ but when the wicked rule the people groan. In Jesus Name~ Amen.

Illinois Legislators Force Homosexual Civil Unions on Public
Let Us Pray. Almighty God~ we pray You condemn the lack of moral and biblical conviction in Illinois~ where the legislature just passed Senate Bill 1716 that will legalize civil unions and grant these unions the same status as marriage in state law. We are grieved by this sin~ and we ask forgiveness for the way so many in our government have disobeyed Your moral law. Even the fifth commandment in Deuteronomy 5:16 says to “honor your father and mother” which is evidence God never defines marriage between two people of the same gender. In Jesus Name~ Amen.

Tulsa City Council Votes Against Jesus At Christmas
Let Us Pray. Almighty God~ we thank You again for Senator Inhofe’s stand by refusing to march in the Tulsa “holiday” parade~ unless the word Christmas was restored to the 70 year old tradition. God please overrule the Tulsa City Council who voted 5-3 against restoring Christmas to the parade title~ denying Christians their right to assemble and worship Jesus. We declare from Isaiah 9:6~ “Unto us a child is born~ a son is given~ and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor~ Mighty God~ Everlasting Father~ Prince of Peace~” in Jesus Name~ Amen.

Top Companies Boycott Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz
Let Us Pray. Almighty God~ we rejoice with Life Decisions International who reports that more companies are refusing to financially support Planned Parenthood and have started boycotting abortion providers. We rejoice that Enterprise car rentals~ Forbes Magazine~ ING financial services and Toys “R” Us~ no longer fund abortion. Please bless these companies as you did Jabez who prayed~ “Oh~ that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me~ and keep me from harm so that I will be free from causing pain.” In Jesus Name~ Amen.

‘Tis the Season to Steal the Baby Jesus from Nativity Scenes
Let Us Pray. Almighty God~ we know that the world hates Jesus~ because He said in John 15:18 that the world hates us and would hate us for following Him. So we are not surprised when we hear that in Redford Township~ Michigan that someone stole a display of the baby Jesus from the city’s nativity scene. We pray that You convict the thief of sin and bring them to repentance. Thank you for the citizens who provided a new baby Jesus~ so all could enjoy the nativity scene that honors the birth of Christ. In Jesus Name~ Amen.

Christianity Arguably the Most Persecuted Religion in the World
Let Us Pray. Almighty God~ we remember John 15:20 when Jesus said~ “’No servant is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me~ they will persecute you also…” as we consider new evidence that shows that Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world. Persecution Ministries reports that 200-230 million believers are under the threat of torture~ imprisonment~ murder~ and beatings daily and that 350-400 million Christians encounter discrimination at work~ while about 150~000 Christians are martyred each year. God strengthen Your people~ and use each one for Your glory~ in Jesus Name~ Amen.
