Pray for Supreme Court Justice Nominee



My heart was burdened with urgency this morning. Pray for the Supreme Court Judicial Appointment! In the coming days President George Bush will nominate a new supreme court justice since Sandra Day O'Connor unexpectedly stepped down last week. Unexpected? I don't think so...

I joined hundreds of young radical students crying out to God last summer in Colorado for 50 days and nights asking God to put George Bush in office because we knew God had appointed him for "such a time as this" to appoint righteous judges into the courts of America. You may have a problem with George Bush, but I believe God has raised him up because He knew beforehand that during this presidential term -supreme court judges would step down, leaving a vacuum for righteous judges to be set in place.

George Bush who stands for Biblical values of righteousness would be a man who would more likely appoint judges with moral standards as opposed to a man like John Kerry who would appoint liberals with "anti-Christ" agendas to continue with the legalization of abortion, homosexuality, euthanasia, etc. I know you may say, "What about "Social Justice" and the democrats bent on reaching the lower parts of society that most republicans overlook? I don't stand as a republican or democrat. I am standing for LIFE. Because of one court decision in 1973 (Roe vs. Wade) over 44 million babies in North America have been aborted at the womb. 1/3 of my generation. This is unacceptable. Where is the justice for these unborn babies? Their blood is crying out from the ground and our only hope from facing the judgment deserved is to plead a better blood.


My friends and I have been pleading the better blood "the blood of Jesus" over this nations supreme court steps since september daily. Many are still in front of the supreme court steps day after day with RED TAPE over their mouths pleading silent prayers, silent intercession for God to bring RIGHTEOUSNESS to the courthouses of America. (www.bound4life.com)

Is it by chance or is it by divine outrcy that since these young "ezekials" ..."intercessors" who have been standing in the gap for our nation that we have had the recent upheaval & controversy over Terry Schiavo, the Filabuster, Supreme Court Rehnquist coming down with cancer & now Sandra O' Connor stepping down from the Supreme Court Justice? This is not by chance, this is by PRAYER.

History belongs to the intercessor. We shape and change history
through prayer and fasting. Pray for God to put the fear of the Lord in George Bush Jr. to nominate and appoint a new supreme court justice who will rule with righteousness and justice over the future of our nation! May God raise up a "DEBORAH" in the place of Sandra Day O' Connor! Pray for this daily, your prayers determine the fate of whether or not we will see the "abolition of abortion" in the United States of America. It will determine the lives of millions of babies who have yet to live, but whom the devil wants to kill. CRY OUT for God's purpose to be established and a righteous judge to be put in place. Pray President Bush does not choose a judge like Gonzales who is silent and wavering about his view on abortion, homosexuality etc. GOD SET RIGHTEOUS JUDGES IN PLACE NOW!

"Now therefore be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who their trust in Him." Psalm 2:10

We need a great communion revival. May God spare millions of unborn babies, may He bring a sweeping revival to the homosexual community filling them with the love of Jesus. May God awaken the hearts of Christ followers in this nation to pray at this kairos hour for Deborah's (righteous judges) to be set over this great nation of America! Read the prophetic article below on this issue from my pastor Lou Engle....

-----------------------------------------------------------

With the resignation of Sandra Day O'Connor from her seat on the bench of the Supreme Court, I believe that we are one step closer to seeing Roe v. Wade overturned and the unholy ritual of abortion ended in America. Sandra Day O'Connor, though appointed by President Ronald Reagan, who was pro-life, was not a pro-life Supreme Court Justice. She systematically upheld and re-affirmed Roe v. Wade in virtually every case that proceeded after that landmark case and was thus, instrumentally involved in prolonging the machinery of death through abortion.

At the same time, I do not ultimately point the finger at Sandra Day O'Connor or any other person for the babies that have died as a consequence of Roe v. Wade. Instead, I strongly believe that the Church failed to gain "air supremacy," i.e. the prevailing spiritual influence, over the Supreme Court through fasting and intercession. Because we were negligent in this area, babies have been methodically and steadily slain, the sanctity of marriage weakened, and the law of God removed from our public square.

However, there is still much hope and optimism in my heart. God still loves America and has shown His gracious and merciful compassion to us. I believe that the Lord has given us a two to three year window of opportunity to see a shift in this nation on this issue of abortion in America and to ultimately see revival return to our country. But the urgency of history demands that we act now to seize victory in the high places.

Prophetic Dreams Concerning Sandra Day O'Connor

Two years ago, on Fourth of July, I was prophetically led to decree Psalm 2 over the Supreme Court justices: "Now therefore, O kings, show discernment; Take warning, o judges of the earth..." On that very same day, Sandra Day O'Connor was in Philadelphia to dedicate the then-new Constitution Museum. As she pulled ribbons to reveal a massive mural hanging above the stage, a heavy metal beam that was part of the framework of the mural came crashing down above her head. Only stopping inches above her head, O'Connor exclaimed that the fallen beam could have killed her.

I felt that the Lord was saying that because most of the Supreme Court justices were not grounded in truth, they were morally lightweight and unable to bear the framework of the Constitution as articulated by our Founding Fathers. I knew that the Lord was shouting that He was ready to deal with the renegade courts and the issue of abortion.

Last year, on Fourth of July weekend, having been gripped with what had happened only one year earlier, a few of my friends and I made the journey to that place where O'Connor had her near-eternity experience. I was pregnant with the God-thought of renewing covenant with God on behalf of America and decreeing a shift over the Supreme Court. That weekend, my prophet friend, Chris Berglund, had a dream. In the dream, he and I were rushing to get to a basketball court. Once we burst through the doors onto the basketball court, we apologized to the person of authority over the basketball court for being late. The person responded, "You always have access to my court." Then, we noticed that there were nine chairs in the middle of the court, but that two of the seats were unoccupied. Chris and I were then invited by the person of authority to possess those two open seats and officiate over the court. We felt that the dream was declaring that two seats were opening and that the Church must sit in authority and claim righteous justices for those seats. Could God have been saying to us all along that two seats were going to be vacated?

Then, just last week, before this Fourth of July weekend, a friend of mine had a dream in which Sandra Day O'Connor was in the house that our Justice House of Prayer activists now resides. In the dream, she approached my friend and said, "I am coming to help you guys at the Cause." Who would have guessed that on this Fourth of July weekend, Sandra Day O'Connor would resign? Could this have been the way that she was helping us? Her resignation could certainly be a great help to our Cause. I believe that the Lord has opened the door to us to have access to at least one of those seats right now and we must possess that seat with fasting and prayer.

A Vacuum Created

Before O'Connor's resignation, there had not been a change in the Court for the past eleven years, the second longest period in its history without a change in its membership. This opportunity that has blown open before us does not come around often. O'Connor's resignation has created a power vacuum that either the Church or groups like Planned Parenthood and ACLU will fill. One way or another, for better or for worse, that vacuum will be filled.

Finally, last night, one of the leaders of the Justice House of Prayer had a dream where President Bush was in his room and had two pairs of shoes in front of him. One pair was dress shoes and the other was a pair of cowboy boots. In the dream, the President was going somewhere and was asking us which pair of shoes he should wear. We answered, "the cowboy boots...the cowboy boots..." We believe that this dream is saying that the houses of prayer must lift this man up day and night in intercession so that he can be the man that God has called him to be. We are calling on God to grip this man with the moment of time in which he now lives. He must move beyond the realm of politics to the man he is at his very core. We are calling on God to hold President Bush to account and cause him to stand on his settled faith convictions and nominate a pro-life Supreme Court justice.

The President's Decision

President Bush is expected to make his decision of who will replace Sandra Day O'Connor within the next few weeks and as early as next week. Several news sources have reported that President Bush is considering several nominees to replace O'Connor that are not actively pro-life. We cannot allow this to happen. If we fail to gain air supremacy over the Courts and the Bush administration now, then I am fearful for the future of America. We must move beyond crisis-moment intercession and prevail in prayer and fasting for tomorrow's victory today.

As I write this, my company of intercessors has been standing in front of the Supreme Court praying for the future of the Court and the soul of America. Standing next to them is the National Organization of Women (NOW) and Planned Parenthood, their zealous and vulgar chanting and signs only demonstrating how high the stakes are in this battle for justice in America and for the unborn. Let it not be said in future generations that the Church of America remained silent and was found weak when they were given the opportunity to turn back the enemy at the gates of our courts.

On July 4, 1776, our forefathers pledged "their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor" to sign the Declaration of Independence and mobilized an army to fight against tyranny and injustice. John Quincy Adams once said, "Posterity: you will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it." I believe that President Bush understood this when he declared that "The sacrifice of our forefathers has become the commitment of our times." Again, just like our forefathers had done over two hundred years ago, today we fight to preserve those liberties passed down to us by our forefathers and throughout the generations. America must live and not die!

We are calling for believers all across America, and especially those on the East Coast, to come rush to this battle, not only in prayer and fasting, but in holy activism. We are sounding out the alarm to come join the prayer activists of the Justice House of Prayer and bound4LIFE.com to stand watch in front of the Supreme Court. We urge you to not miss this opportunity to stand in the gap for this nation. The next few weeks are critical – come to DC and engage in this battle. This day, we fight!

Guess what, I'm gonna go to Harvest Rock church this sunday with my friends. Hopefully I'll see you there.
Actually I do reach out on my campus too, god is good, he let me met this guy-the leader of ICF (International Christian Fellowship) just the very first month of my college. He just randomly talk with me on campus. You see, it's god's work. Now he's training me to be a leader and i'm bringing a lot of my friends to the fellowship.
If i want to go to the chinese universities, i better start practicing here in my own college. Right?
God is truly amazing, he's giving me all the help I need.

Good luck with everything at fuller. It's tough but you can do it!!! May god bless you and give you all the strength that you need!!!
