"Writhe and labor to give birth,
Daughter of Zion,
Like a woman in childbirth . . .
"But they do not know the thoughts of the LORD,
And they do not understand His purpose;
For He has gathered them like sheaves to the threshing floor.
"Arise and thresh, daughter of Zion,
For your horn I will make iron
And your hoofs I will make bronze,
That you may pulverize many peoples,
That you may devote to the LORD their unjust gain
And their wealth to the Lord of all the earth. . .
"And He will arise and shepherd His flock
In the strength of the LORD,
In the majesty of the name of the LORD His God.
And they will remain,
Because at that time He will be great
To the ends of the earth.
This One will be our peace. . ."
[from Micah 4:10, 12, 13]
Please pray and proclaim with us!
Oh LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
Who holds the vast universe together with Your love and
with Your Word,
Who ordained the seasons of mankinds' history on this earth,
We thank you for your 'chesed' - your tender loving-kindness
to us and to all who seek your face.
Today we remember your words to your servant, Joshua,
As the Children of Israel prepared to enter Canaan:
"Every place on which the sole of your foot treads,
I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses . . .
"Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do
according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you;
do not turn from it to the right or to the left,
so that you may have success wherever you go.
This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall
meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do
according to all that is written in it; for then you will make
your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed,
for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
[from Joshua, Chapter one]
So today, LORD our God,
in the mighty Name of Your Son, Yeshua,
whose holy blood bought redemption for all who will receive Him,
we cry to You on behalf of ourselves, our families, our nation,
The United States of America, and for the peoples of this Earth:
Remember the blood of Your Son, remember the blood of your martyrs,
Remember the blood of the founders of our nation, and of every man and
woman who has believed in your dream of a shining city on a hill,
proclaiming the light of Your Truth and Love to this world --
Remember the men and women who have believed your holy Word,
and have joined their faith, dedicating their prayers and proclamations --
praying at locations on Capitol Hill, and marching around the building
where sits the Supreme Court of the United States of America --
Even so, oh LORD,
Gather the prayers of your people together from throughout the world,
Join them with the prayers of our forefathers, and of the marchers, and
CONFIRM YOUR WORD TO YOUR SERVANTS :
"EVERY PLACE ON WHICH THE SOLE OF YOUR FOOT TREADS,
I HAVE GIVEN IT TO YOU, JUST AS I SPOKE TO MOSES"
Even so, LORD our God,
Destroy the lies of doubt and unbelief which have polluted
this land which You created.
Reverse the curses which have come upon, and through those
who sit as Judges in the Supreme Court of the United States of America.
Sear into their souls Your Truth. Cause holy conviction to come upon them.
MAKE THEM TO KNOW THAT YOU ALONE ARE GOD,
and that they are but flesh.
Forgive them, for they have been blind.
Now, confirm Your Word, Our God, and let us see Your Glory!
We ask it in Yeshua's holy Name,
we declare it done,
And we give to You all the praise and the glory!
