Being Watchful in Prayer
President Ronald Reagan appointed three justices to the Supreme Court. One was Justice Antonin Scalia. He was a constitutional conservative and came down on the side of life and limitation to government. He was a quality man. He was a no-compromise kind of guy that believed in morality, God’s founding of this nation and what it stands for. President Reagan’s other two appointees were Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and Justice Anthony Kennedy. Both have retired now, but when they served, their judgements were surprising. You never knew which way they would rule. Kennedy was the biggest surprise. Everyone thought he was extremely conservative. He turned out to be extremely liberal in his rulings. O’Connor was more moderate but still liberal leaning. President Reagan was a conservative who thought he was appointing conservative justices. Something happened to them when they stepped onto the Court. We can’t have those on the bench that the enemy can turn his direction. This may be our last opportunity to turn this nation back to God.
“Avoid evil and walk straight ahead. Don’t go one step off the right way.” (Proverbs 4:27; GNT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- It is up to the Church to handle the spiritual side of the nominating and confirming process of the Supreme Court Justices. Call the Church out of complacency and onto their knees.
- Pray against all forms of witchcraft and occult practices that could affect the mind of Judge Kavanaugh, through the upcoming hearings and beyond.
- Declare, “Should Judge Kavanaugh be God’s choice for this open seat, he will be protected by the blood of Jesus Christ and the prayers of the Saints. We forbid any force of darkness to turn him away from who he is being presented to be.”
- Cover the minds and hearts of all of the Supreme Court Justices in prayer.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we call the Ekklesia to the watches over the Supreme Court’s open seat. We shake off complacency and any decisions we may have made that this is a done deal. The enemy is still at work, so we should still be in prayer! There is a clear war over these nine Supreme Court Justices. If the enemy has turned men and women aside in the past, he can do it again, unless we watch and pray. Those that are not close to you can be more easily swayed. We don’t know what Judge Kavanaugh’s relationship with You is like. We know he is a Catholic, so he has some knowledge of You. We don’t know if He seeks You daily and in every decision affecting his life, his family, his rulings, and this nation. Should Judge Kavanaugh be Your choice for this open seat, we say he will be protected by the blood of Jesus Christ and our intercesion. We forbid any force of darkness to turn him away from who he is being presented to be. (Take a few minutes and pray similarly for the other eight justices.) In the faithful name of our Lord, Jesus, amen.
God’s choice for Supreme Court Justice will remain true to Him and will judge righteously.
