|Seven Daily "National News Prayer Alerts" for the Week of 2 – 8 Jan 2011|
Sign FREE petition…North Carolina Bans Jesus
We will fax 8 key Legislators to restore Jesus prayers
The newly elected North Carolina State Legislature will soon decide whether to reverse the ban against prayers "in Jesus name" enforced by anti-Jesus Speaker Joe Hackney last July. Pastor Ron Baity (my personal friend, at whose church I preached last year) was fired from his duties as honorary House chaplain when he prayed "in Jesus name" and spoke the now illegal word "Jesus" on the House floor. After we faxed nearly 250,000 of your petition comments to the entire legislature last summer, the House appointed a bi-partisan committee of 8 key members to review the prayer rules. That committee should soon release their new ruling and issue new rules that either allow or permanently ban Jesus prayers. Let’s take action! [Forward this to North Carolina friends.]
Then select here to sign our FREE PETITION again, and if enough people optionally donate we’ll fax all your comments to 8 key members.
The Evening Prayer Weekly National News Alert
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, bless the North Carolina Supreme Court Judges who voided the adoption by a lesbian mother of a child whom she and her former partner, the biological mother, were abusing together by denying the child a father. We pray this case would establish precedent to stop all homosexual adoptions in the state, and protect the emotional development of every child who needs both a mother and father. Exodus 20:12 tells us to honor your mother and father, which proves God’s design for every child is to be raised by both. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Christians Bombed by Muslims in Egypt
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we pray from Psalm 29:11 that You give strength and peace to Christians in Egypt, who now stand accused of riots because they protest yet another church bombing by Muslims, which killed 21 and injured 90. The government now decides whether to ease the rules that forbid building or repairing church buildings anywhere in the nation. We pray these restrictions are dropped by a presidential permit, so the two percent of Christians living in Egypt can worship the True God just as freely as the Muslims worship their false god. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Debt Ceiling Vote with Balanced Budget Amendment
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, Proverbs 22:7 tells us that the borrower is slave to the lender, and we confess as a nation that we have been poor stewards of the wealth You have blessed us with, by running up a 14 Trillion Dollar national debt. We pray You grant wisdom to the Republican leadership who will vote on whether or not to raise the authorized national debt ceiling without spending cuts, or whether they to force Democrats to agree to vote on a balanced budget amendment. Direct our leaders to fiscal sanity, we pray in Jesus Name, Amen.

Help Remove Four Pro-Homosexual Iowa Judges
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we pray for Vander Plaats who is raising money to oust the 4 remaining Iowa Supreme Court Judges who forced homosexual “marriage” against the citizens’ will in 2009, since only 3 of the 7 judges were voted out last month. God please help remove evil judges from their positions and inspire people to donate toward their removal. We confess from Proverbs 29:2 when the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan. Raise up more Christian leaders like Plaats, and righteous, God fearing people in government, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Tim Tebow and 8-Year-Old Rhema Marvanne Stand for Christ

Australian Floods Larger than France and Germany Combined
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we ask for mercy on Australia as they recover from what is being referred to as a flood of biblical proportions, impacting close to a quarter of a million residents in the Rockhampton and Queensland area. We pray from Isaiah 26:3 for Your perfect peace and safe provision to be with all who steadfastly trust in Christ during this time, and we pray more would come to know God’s love and protection during this time of national crisis in Australia. God convert the atheist Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, in Jesus Name, Amen.
