25 Days of Prayer for America – the foundation of justice

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Unfailing love and truth walk before you as attendants.    – Psalm 89:14 (NLT)

IT IS CRITICAL THAT GOD’S PEOPLE VOTE! – Franklin Graham

The upcoming election is the most important in our lifetime. The presidential race isn’t about personalities – both candidates are flawed. What it really comes down to is the appointment of Supreme Court justices. The Supreme Court is the most powerful body of decision makers in our nation, and they serve life terms. Their beliefs matter. Many of the things they rule on are important to God – including issues like abortion, the definition of marriage, and religious freedoms.

The next president of the United States will immediately appoint one Supreme Court justice and may appoint up to a total of five while in office. The justices who are appointed will impact the direction of our country for the next hundred years. I urge everyone to research who the candidates say they will nominate for the highest court in the land.

Prayer: For Nominees to the Supreme Court

Heavenly Father: Our founders encoded a legal system in America based, however imperfectly, on our Judeo-Christian heritage with the Ten Commandments as the cornerstone. And yet, these basic, essential, values are currently under assault from all sides.

In this presidential election, You have given Americans the opportunity to stem the tide of secularism in our country. And so, I pray for the appointment of Supreme Court justices that will:

+ Lord, I pray for Supreme Court justices who will uphold the Sanctity of Life.

After eight years of the most pro-abortion president in American history, our choices seem abundantly clear: a continuation of a radical, pro-abortion agenda advancing its legality through nine months of pregnancy, or a course correction toward the sanctity of innocent human life. May voters choose life.

(Charmaine Yoest, Ph.D., a senior fellow at American Values in Washington, D.C., led a national pro-life organization for many years.)

+ Lord, I pray for Supreme Court justices who will uphold the traditional Definition of Marriage.

Unprecedented threats are coming through the militant LGBT agenda. Same-sex marriage and the abolition of gender eventually will have an impact on every religious institution and person.

When human sexuality is elevated to a civil right on par with race, discrimination laws that are now applied to race and ethnicity will be equally applied to sexual behavior….

The LGBT agenda will influence the hiring and firing of teachers and affect admissions, disciplines, student loans and facilities. Even churches will not be immune from such challenges.

Make no mistake about it—this attack is coercive, unyielding and highly aggressive. No one will be exempt.

(Mat Staver is the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, an international nonprofit litigation, education, and policy organization advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and family.)

+ Lord, I pray for Supreme Court justices that will uphold Religious Freedom.

For more than 200 years, Americans could take religious liberty for granted. It was a fundamental characteristic of the United States—and one reason why the rest of the world saw this nation as a beacon of hope.

Not anymore. Now, America’s “first freedom” is in danger of being thrown on the trash heap.

The Obama administration, numerous judges and legislators, and in many cases the U.S. Supreme Court, seem eager to steamroll any state, business, school or individual that does not support the killing of unborn babies, the celebration of same-sex marriage or the obliteration of gender distinctions.

Some states, notably Oregon and Washington, have punished business owners and public officials for living according to their Christian faith.

(Bob Paulson author, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association)

Heavenly Father: Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne… and they are the foundation of America as best we are able to live them out. May unfailing love and truth go before Your people on November 8th as we head to the polls to cast our votes.

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit – one God forever. Amen.
