Call to Prayer: The Kavanaugh Hearings
A generation of Americans has given itself to erroneous and destructive beliefs: anti-biblical thinking; humanism (humans are their own god); secularism (the view that education and civil policy should be conducted without a religious element); and death (abortion). As a result, we are now ruled by the spirit that produced these beliefs. The reality of this was on full display at the confirmation hearing of Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court. I was there, along with 50-60 other intercessors, to pray for God’s will to be accomplished. The level of deceit, lies, slander, and arrogant pride was shocking, displayed not only by the protesters, but also by opposing Senators. I left D.C. with several significant thoughts, which I believe are worth sharing.
The level of spiritual warfare was extraordinary. Never have I been more convinced that a war of historical proportions is underway for the soul of our nation, a war that will have worldwide implications. Like Israel, America’s role on the earth is extremely significant. Israel was chosen to bring forth the Messiah, the Savior of the world; America was chosen to be the foremost messenger of this “good news.” Understanding this, there is little wonder that such an intense spiritual war for our destiny is occurring.
At the Kavanaugh hearings, I was also amazed by the level of viciousness coming from “the left.” Some of them seem to have lost all decency—their liberal agenda is all that matters. This segment of America’s leaders is determined to maintain control over our nation—truth, honor, integrity, civility, morality, and the lives of babies be damned. Do not be deceived, they despise what we stand for and will not relent in their opposition. To these elitists, we really are “deplorables.” And I assure you, this war is winner take all.
“But you need to be aware that in the final days the culture of society will become extremely fierce and difficult for the people of God. People will be self-centered lovers of themselves and obsessed with money. They will boast of great things as they strut around in their arrogant pride and mock all that is right. They will ignore their own families. They will be ungrateful and ungodly. They will become addicted to hateful and malicious slander. Slaves to their desires, they will be ferocious, belligerent haters of what is good and right. With brutal treachery, they will act without restraint, bigoted and wrapped in clouds of their conceit. They will find their delight in the pleasures of this world more than the pleasures of the loving God. They may pretend to have a respect for God, but in reality they want nothing to do with God’s power. Stay away from people like these!” (2 Timothy 3:1-5, The Passion Translation)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Pray fervently… faithfully… daily…boldly. Ask Holy Spirit for His mercy on our nation.
- Appeal to Him for His assistance to us in our attempt to turn America.
- Petition Him for the assistance of angels.
- Pray that evil will not prevail. Ask Holy Spirit to confuse and thwart the plans of those who oppose Him.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, in our war for America’s recovery, we have come to our Saratoga, our Omaha Beach. We will either persevere in this battle and, with Your help, win; or we will grow weary and lose. There is no middle ground. I am convinced that we, the praying church, will continue to fight and will win. We appeal to Heaven and to Heaven alone. Send Your angels to fight for us. Send them to intervene in the affairs of men and reverse the source of the curses that hold us back. We choose truth, honor, integrity, civility, morality, and every unborn life! Shut the mouths of the accusers and those who spew forth hatred, and every kind of wicked and vile word against righteousness, justice, and You. Do not let evil prevail against Your Church, lest they say, “Where is Your God?” Thwart every plan of men and be King over our land, Jesus. Amen.
America’s destiny and the cause of Christ is at stake! He will save us!
