Now and then a President is absolutely sure he has found the perfect nominee as a Justice of the Supreme Court. Sometimes, it turns out that person reveals themselves to not be who the President thought they would be. While we want a strong supporter of the Constitution, that can mean different things to different justices. Sometimes, they simply change their views over time. For example, President Eisenhower called Chief Justice Earl Warren the biggest mistake he ever made. Warren ruled in Brown v Board of Education on behalf of segregating public schools. A number of Republican appointees to the Court have been much more moderate than their appointing presidents ever imagined them to be, including the retiring Anthony Kennedy. They sided with the liberal end of the Court on abortion and gay marriage cases. For our children’s future in America, we can’t bear another mistake like that.
“There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” (Proverbs 14:12; NASB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- If our Senate ever needed discernment, it is in the confirmation process of a Supreme Court Justice. Pray.
- Declare that our nation will not accept another generation of unrighteous, unholy Supreme Court decisions.
- Decree that our children will not reap the fruit of our generation’s missteps in choosing a Supreme Court Justice.
- Prophetically open the door to the vacant Supreme Court seat to the one of God’s own choosing and close it to anyone else. (Isaiah 22:22)
A prayer you can pray:
God, our President has made his choice. Now, it is up to our Senate to see what Brett Kavanaugh is truly made of. Don’t let politics blind their view of him. We, as representatives of the United States of America, will not accept anyone who will align themselves with the enemies of God. We won’t accept decisions that kill infants in the womb or that put stamps of approval on immoral lifestyles. We refuse to leave a United States like that to our children and children’s children. We want to turn the battle at the gate now, in our generation! We say that the vacant Supreme Court seat is only open to the one of God’s own choosing and close it to anyone else. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
Let the fabric of our next Supreme Court Justice choose life and godliness!
