Let Us Pray. Almighty God~ we pray boldly You help the Supreme Court accept and overturn the case of Davenport v. American Atheists~ where the 10th Circuit banned any stand-alone cross on public land~ violating the First Amendment and establishing “bulldozer atheism” as the state religion of Utah.

Proverbs 4:7 says wisdom is supreme~ so grant the wisdom to the Supreme Court~ in Jesus Name. Amen.

Supreme Court Limits Inmate Lawsuits For Religious Rights
Let Us Pray. Almighty God~ bless the prisoners impacted by the 6-2 decision from the Supreme Court that ruled that prison inmates~ under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act~ have the right to sue to change prison policies~ but not to seek financial redress. While some claim this decision will leave prisoners to defend their religious rights with “one hand tied behind their backs” the majority understood how lawsuit abuse could take place. 1Kings 2:36 and Numbers 15:34 teaches the gracious treatment of prisoners and we pray the same with this ruling. In Jesus Name. Amen.

S & P Downgrades U.S. Debt Outlook
Let Us Pray. Almighty God~ Job 24:9 tells us that the fatherless are given as security for a debt~ just like our own children are being forced into the slavery of America’s national debt. This week stocks dropped when the S&P downgraded the future sustainability of our nation’s debt~ causing worldwide trust in the dollar to plummet~ since we will soon default on our loans. Yet President Obama refuses to cut spending~ saying criticism of his financial abuse is only political. Grant courage to our leaders to cut spending and truly pay off our debt~ in Jesus Name. Amen.

Almighty God~ we pray for protection for the newly appointed Coptic Christian Governor in Egypt~ from Psalm 91:11 that you will command your angels to guard the governor~ so that the hard line Islamists who are campaigning against this new governor will not bring any harm to your servant.
