One Minutes Prayers for a nation in distress

Court Bans Ten Commandments as Unconstitutional
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we pray You overturn the ruling by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, who ruled 2-1 that a public display of the Ten Commandments somehow violates the Constitution, which was founded on the Ten Commandments. God Bless Judge James Ryan who is recommending a rehearing by the full court, as Matthew 22:21 says we should render to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God’s. We agree with our 6th President John Quincy Adams who said there is an “indissoluble bond in the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity," in Jesus Name, Amen.

Valedictorian Banned From Thanking God At Graduation
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, thank You for the faith of Renee Griffith, who refused to remove references to Christ and God in her valedictorian speech, and as a result wasn’t allowed to give her speech. Thank you also for The Rutherford Institute who now defends her right to free speech and has appealed a ruling all the way to the Supreme Court. Now we pray for a complete victory for free speech, for the right to acknowledge God and Christ in public settings. From Psalm 25:21, God upholds those with integrity and protects them, in Jesus Name, Amen.

The Boy Scouts Sued by Homosexual Complainers
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we ask for a victory for The Boy Scouts of America, as they fight a new lawsuit from homosexual complainers claiming this faith-based institution somehow discriminates against sin and, therefore, should not be allowed to meet in a city owned building as other groups do, violating a fair practices ordinance even though the Supreme Court has ruled previously that the Boy Scouts can exclude homosexuals because they are a private organization. From Jeremiah 29:7 we seek the peace, prosperity, and welfare of the scouts, and we pray for victory, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Update: Answered Prayer! Jury Protects Boy Scouts from Homosexuals
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we thank You for hearing our prayer from Jeremiah 29:7 last week, and giving peace, prosperity, and victory for the Boy Scouts as they resisted the homosexual complainers and the city of Philadelphia who tried to stop the God-honoring Boy Scouts from using public property. Thank You for the jury who agreed unanimously that Philadelphia violated the Boy Scouts First Amendment rights and ruled they cannot be evicted or have to pay to use the city offices they’ve held for years. Thank you for honoring Your people’s prayers, in Jesus Name, Amen.

House Bill Fails To Repeal Obamacare 187-230
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, thank You for the 166 Republicans and 21 Democrats who voted to repeal the unconstitutional individual mandate in H.R. 5486, the Small Business Jobs Tax Relief Act, which would’ve given people the opportunity for personal choice in healthcare, and also enforced deficit reduction, even though the measure failed. Lord, we are grieved by the unethical and immoral health-care takeover by our government, and we see Proverbs 29:2, when the righteous rule the people rejoice, and when the wicked rule, the people groan. Today we groan at yet another Government takeover, in Jesus Name, Amen.  motion to Recommit the Small Business Tax Bill (H.R. 5486) to committee. (The language would also have repealed the federal individual health insurance mandate.)

Reaffirming ‘In God We Trust’ As The Official Motto
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, thank you for Representative Randy Forbes’ House Resolution 274 which reaffirms "In God We Trust" as the official motto of the United States and encourages the public display of the national motto in all public buildings, public schools, and other government institutions. Lord, thank You for the 72 cosponsors of this resolution and ask that more Representatives would cosponsor this resolution and help it pass in the House. From Psalm 20:7 we declare that while some trust in chariots and horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Conservative Congressmen Stand With Israel
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we thank You for the 78 House Republicans led by Study Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) and fellow conservatives who sent a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu supporting Israel's right to defend her people and join Egypt’s blockade of the Gaza Strip that has proven vital in keeping weapons out of the hands of the terrorist organization Hamas. Dear God, we recall your promise from Genesis 12:3 that You will bless those who bless Israel, and curse those who curse Israel. Thank You for Your blessing, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Obama Hosts Palestinian Leader At White House
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we pray You condemn President Obama’s actions to give another $400 million in aid to the Philistines (Palestinians) and support Mahmoud Abbas’ plan to take Jerusalem away from Israel. Obama called for a separate Palestinian state, even while funding weapons and Hamas terrorists that will endanger Israel. From Psalm 122:6 we pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and pray God make Your land and Your chosen people safe and secure. God show Obama that giving away the land of Israel, one piece at a time, will never bring peace, but destruction, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Answered Prayer! Free Speech Restored at Liberty Bell Display
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, thank you for delivering justice and restoring freedom to Michael Marcavage after he was arrested in 2007 for preaching at the site of the Liberty Bell. Thank God for the unanimous ruling by the Appeals Court judges, who agreed his First Amendment rights were violated and the state cannot stop him from preaching the gospel on a public sidewalk. God raise up more like Marcavage and Repent America to “Proclaim liberty throughout the land and to all the inhabitants thereof,” as the Bible commands us in Leviticus 25:10, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Rutherford Institute Defends Student’s Right to Wear Patriotic Clothing
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, thank You for the work of John Whitehead and The Rutherford Institute who are defending students at Live Oak High School in California, who were punished for wearing patriotic red, white, and blue T-shirts on Cinco De Mayo and told by their principal to remove them because it was a Mexican holiday. Please give victory to the students and our First Amendment in court. We pray Psalm 21:11 that although some plot against America and devise wicked schemes, they will not succeed and the Truth shall prevail, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Supreme Court Denies Christian Student Group First Amendment Rights
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we grieve at another strike against the First Amendment in the 5-4 ruling in Christian Legal Society v. U.C.Hastings, where a Christian student group has been told by the Supreme Court they cannot select Christian officers who adhere to biblical beliefs, and they must allow homosexual leadership before they can get equal access to student resources. Lord, we pray now for wisdom from Ecclesiastes 9:18 because wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroys much good. Lord, allow Truth to prevail regardless of the compromise of the Supreme Court, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Obama Violates DOMA Forcing Businesses to Grant Gay Leave
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, Your Word says that only a man and a woman can marry, and children are a gift from the Lord in Psalm 127:3. Lord, you defined family, and we pray You condemn President Obama’s illegal power-grab that just declared homosexual “families” as equal to real families, forcing private Christian business owners to grant 12 weeks of unpaid leave to homosexual “families” under the Family Medical Leave Act, which now violates the Defense of Marriage Act signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996. God restore religious exceptions in the law, in Jesus Name, Amen.

'XXX' Domain Advances, Endangering Children who Access Porn
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we are saddened by the recent decision by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to allow the “.XXX” internet domain ending for use by pornographers, even though they have denied this domain in the past. Now we pray from Job 31:1 that we would not pursue these websites which will be easier for children to find and cause much harm to their spirits. Please protect everyone from this unhealthy trap and snare, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Google Pays Taxes for Gay Employees, but not Unmarried Heteros
Let us pray. Almighty God, we pray according to Psalm 33:10 that You bring the corporation Google to nothing and frustrate the plans of their decision to give bonus pay to homosexual workers, (but they deny the same bonus to heterosexuals), to offset federal taxes that unmarried folks pay on health benefits, as if extending infertility benefits to homosexuals could overcome their biological sterility. We pray for healing of confusion and from 2 Peter 2:14 against the enticement of unsteady souls. Obstruct the efforts of Google to reward sin with extra money, we pray in Jesus' Name. Amen.

Hawaii Governor Vetos Homosexual "Marriage" Civil Unions Bill
Hawaii's governor vetoed legislation that would have permitted same-sex civil unions, ending months of speculation on how she would weigh in on the contentious, emotional debate.
Republican Gov. Linda Lingle's action came on the final day she had to either sign or veto the bill, which the Hawaii Legislature approved in late April. "I have been open and consistent in my opposition to same-gender marriage, and find that House Bill 444 is essentially marriage by another name." She said voters should decide the fate of civil unions, not politicians, "The subject of this legislation has touched the hearts and minds of our citizens as no other social issue of our day," Lingle said. "It would be a mistake to allow a decision of this magnitude to be made by one individual or a small group of elected officials."

A troubled nation turns to God

Dear God, please watch over our country, guide us, and help us as the New York City Landmarks Commission evaluates any plans to build a 13-story Islamic Mosque at Ground Zero, literally at the same building where the landing gear fell on 9/11, when Islamic Terrorists killed 2,996 innocent Americans and civilians. We ask that they don't insult the memory of the victims of the 9/11 tragedy, and don't reward the Muslim terrorists.

Defense Bill Includes Abortion Funding for Military Bases
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we pray for the defeat of the Defense Budget Amendment proposed by Senator Roland Burris (D-IL), that would fund abortions on military bases both domestic and overseas. We declare Psalm 139:13-16 that You knit us together in our mother’s womb, that all children are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that Your eyes saw our unformed body even before our days came to be, and so we stand for life. We praise You God, the author of Life, and ask boldly that this bill would fail miserably, in Jesus’ Name, Amen

Atheists Threaten “In God We Trust” in California City
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we know from Psalm 14:1 that the fool has said in his heart that there is no God, proving atheist complainer Annie Gaylor is a fool, and so is her organization the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Please silence the mouths of these fools, and grant us another court victory for the national motto, “In God We Trust”, to be displayed above the city seal of Ontario California, as the city council voted unanimously. God bless the Pacific Justice Institute with victory in defending the God-fearing people of Ontario, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Obama Declares June Homosexual Month
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we reject President Obama’s disgusting promotion of homosexuality and trans-gender genital mutilation, as he claims to speak for America by declaring June a month of arrogant pride endorsing these deviancies. Lord, we declare your word from Proverbs 29:2, “when the righteous rule the people rejoice, when the wicked rule, the people groan.” Lord, we groan at the wickedness Obama promotes, and we ask that You would bring this man to a place of real repentance and salvation, we pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Grassroots Efforts to Keep Out Kagan
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we pray for a miracle, that extreme liberal Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is denied a place on the Supreme Court.* We also pray boldly for a grassroots uprising to petition all 100 Senators to filibuster and block this wicked nominee. From Proverbs 21:21 we know that he who pursues righteousness and love, finds life, prosperity, and honor. Father, please honor your people and hear our cries for a righteous Supreme Court judge, not another wicked one. Raise up the godly to oppose the evildoer, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Judge Bans Graduations Held in Church
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we pray for U.S. District Court Judge Janet Hall who your word declares an unrighteous judge because she sides with evil and not righteousness, having just ruled that two Connecticut high schools cannot hold their graduations at The First Cathedral in Bloomfield because she says that is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion. Lord, even though the wicked rule, we declare from 1 Timothy 4:10 that we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Gambling Law Takes Effect; Barney Frank Hates Law
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, thank you for passage of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act that took effect recently ordering banks to stop credit card and other electronic payments to illegal gambling websites. We ask now that You would stop Congressman Barney Frank from passing his new legislation that would overturn this good law. Lord, we know from 1 Timothy 6:10 that the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil, and please protect families from the evil which gambling promotes, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

*Supreme Court Judges are to Uphold the Constitution

Turkey's Catholic Bishop Beheaded by Muslims
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we are saddened and grieved by the recent beheading of Catholic Bishop Luigi Padavese of Turkey, who was murdered by Islamic terrorists who yelled “Allah Akhbar! I killed the great Satan!” while butchering the Christian to death. From 2 Corinthians 1:4 we pray God comforts His Church, and allow the Church to offer comfort to the poor people of Turkey who are oppressed by radical Islamic terrorists. We pray for the terrorists themselves, that God would deliver them out of such a dark and false religion, and bring them to justice, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Pro-Life Prayer Made Illegal in Washington, DC
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we thank you for the stand of Bound4Life and the Rev. Patrick Mahoney who was recently arrested for praying on a public sidewalk, to end abortion in Washington DC. God we know that sidewalk was public for decades despite brand new deceptive claims by Planned Parenthood, who now says it’s their own private property. So we pray from Deuteronomy 28:3 that Your people would be blessed in the city, and the country and that the world will see what is happening to righteous people in America while they stand for You, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Florida Governor Charlie Crist Betrays Pro-Lifers, Vetoes Ultrasound Bill
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we declare James 1:8, that a double-minded man is unstable in all of his ways, exposing Florida Governor Charlie Crist, who once claimed to be pro-life but now has dropped any pro-life message from his campaign website, and even worse, thumbed his nose at conservatives by vetoing a bill that would require abortion-minded women to see an ultrasound picture of their innocent child. This despite thousands of pro-life people contacting Crist and urging him to sign the bill. God inspire the people of Florida to throw Crist out of office, in Jesus Name, Amen.

9-6 Vote to Keep Homosexual Blood out of Blood Supply
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we thank you for 9 members of the Department of Health and Human Services who voted to keep homosexual blood out of our national blood supply, since the Merck Medical Manual (p. 1500, 15th ed.) reports that 28% of male homosexuals admit having more than 1,000 sex partners, and 75% admit multiple sexual contacts with strangers, and AIDS continues to grow exponentially among gay men. God keep our blood donors clean, and we know from Hebrews 9:22 that only the blood Jesus shed on the cross can forgive our sins, in Jesus Name, Amen.

N.Y. Senate Committee Rejects Gender Bill
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we thank you for the narrow 12-11 victory in the New York State Senate Judiciary Committee that voted to reject the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act, which would have forced sharing of all public women’s bathrooms with cross-dressing men, and created special rights for self-mutilaters. God now help the U.S. Congress reject Barney Frank’s ENDA bill that would do the same thing nation-wide, since in Genesis 2 God created man and woman without any mistakes, the same way Jesus defined marriage in Matthew 19, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Obama’s Judge Chatigny Lenient on Sex Offenders
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we pray You help defeat President Obama’s promotion of Judge Robert Chatigny to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, since he gave sex offenders, rapists, and child pornographers lean sentences and disregarded the suffering of the victims. Lord, even the liberal Senator Feinstein (D-CA) declined to vote for his nomination! From Proverbs 29:2 we pray for righteous judges who can properly discern good from evil, and defeat those like Robert Chatigny who side with the perpetrators instead of their victims. God protect the innocent by causing his nomination to fail, in Jesus name, Amen.

Methodist Seminary Promotes False Religions
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we obey Ephesians 5:11 by exposing the evil deeds of darkness at the Claremont School of Theology who just created a “University Project” designed to promote training in the false religions of Islam, Hinduism, and other idolatry. They deny Jesus’ teaching in John 14:6, that nobody comes to the Father except through Christ, and abuse funding from Methodist Churches founded by John Wesley. God we pray You condemn the heretics at this school, and pray You grant discerning of spirits to students, to seek biblical doctrine elsewhere, in Jesus Name, Amen.

The land of Israel belongs to Israel - Who are the Palestinians?

After the Roman destruction of Israel in A.D. 70, Israel began to be called 'Palestine.' It was ruled by many different invaders for the next few hundred years, including European Crusaders who tried to wrest it back from the muslims when they took control in the 7th century.

Muslims ruled the land of Palestine with neglect from A.D. 635 until 1917. In time and under their lack of care, the land became desolate with withered fields, no trees, no people, very little rain, eroded soil, malaria-ridden swamps, and rocky mountainsides.

Such a sorry and heartbroken sight was the land of Palestine. Mark Twain called it 'monotonous and uninviting' and famously remarked in his 1869 book, The Innocents Abroad:
  • "Stirring scenes occur in the valley [of Jezreel] no more. There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent – not for 30 miles in either direction. There are two or three small clusters of Bedouin tents, but not a single permanent habitation. One may ride 10 miles hereabouts and not see 10 human beings."
Meanwhile, as the Jews suffered persecutions in Russia and Eastern Europe, some of them fled to Palestine to escape the massacres.

During the 1800's, the Jews were able to buy property from the Ottoman Turks. Since the land was useless, the Turks were glad to sell it to the 'dumb' and desperate Jews; and the Turks got away with selling pieces of land at extremely high prices.

Baron Edmond de Rothschild, the “Father of the Yishuv” (the Jewish settlement in Palestine) was for decades the largest Jewish landowner in Palestine and Transjordan.  The Rothschilds funded much of Israel's governmental infrastructure. For examples, James A. de Rothschild financed the Knesset building as a gift to the State of Israel, and Dorothy de Rothschild donated Israel's Supreme Court building. 

Britain encouraged Jewish immigration to Palestine and Jerusalem by establishing several religious societies and missionaries to help the Jews settle in. Some of these societies are Al Torah Society (1802), Palestine (1805), and London Missionary (1825). Al Maseery 1982.

Napoleon also encouraged Jewish thinkers and leaders when he proclaimed that the Jews were the legal heirs of Palestine during Akka Seige in April 1799. Awadh 1971.

Britain opened a consulate office in Jerusalem in 1838 to protect the Jews. Germany (1842), France (1843), Austria (1849), Spain (1854), the United States (1857), and Russia (1861) followed suit. The London Times said on July 17, 1841, in an article entitled, Syria and Jews Resurrection, that the "Jews definitely will settle in Palestine with the aid of the five superpowers; this has been taken seriously" Al Natsheh 1984.

The Jews worked hard to make the land prosper, many of them dying from hardships of the land and the disease of malaria. They didn't give up, and their efforts were rewarded. The land began to blossom.
And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. Isaiah 61:4
Neighboring peoples were amazed. Hoards of muslim poor from Iraq, Kuwait, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Egypt came into the land to work for the Jews.  They stayed and formed small settlements. From those workers is where most of today's 'Palestinians' have descended. (Israel has in the past offered them citizenship.)

When the Hashemite Tribe (people who trace their ancestry from Hashim, the great-grandfather of Muhammad, and who ruled over Mecca and Medina for centuries) were driven out by the Saudis, the British gave them rulership over the immigrant migrant workers in Transjordan. The British said this would be "The State of Palestine." The Hashemites, who make up about 20 percent of the population, turned it into the Kingdom of Jordan.

On August 23,1959, the Prime Minister of Jordan stated, "We are the Government of Palestine, the army of Palestine, and the refugees of Palestine."

The West Bank and the Gaza Strip were controlled by the Jordanians and Egyptians from 1948 to 1967. There was no mention of giving up that land out of concern and fairness for today's Palestinians. After the Six-Day War in June, 1967, Israel controlled the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. Suddenly, there was outcry that the Palestinians needed land and that the West Bank and Gaza should be given to them.

God warned:
Therefore thus says the Lord God: 'Surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the rest of the nations and against all Edom [Arabs], who took MY LAND to themselves as a possession, with whole-hearted joy and spiteful minds, in order to plunder its open country ... But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to MY PEOPLE ISRAEL, for they are about to come.' Ezekiel 36: 5, 8 NKJ

Palestinians - Who are they?  Jordan strips Palestinians' citizenship History of Israel and Palestine Brief History of Zionism and Creation of Israel

by Eva
Untouched by man, the land lay bare;
No fruit nor flowers did grow there.
A wild and unkempt land it was
The wilderness.
Then pilgrims with tools and seeds.
They came to plow the cold, hard ground,
To plant their seed, and to water the ground
With blood, sweat, and tears.
Expelled from the world,
They joined hands and came
To rebuild their homeland, to plant, and to pray,
Believing their families would join them one day
In the land of the Jews.
They gave up their old lives in
Exchange for the new, and
Israel prospered and Israel grew,
Where she stands a reminder to both Gentile and Jew
A miracle.

Israel is losing the media war -- Stand up in support of Israel

"On May 31, Israel walked straight into a trap—a trap set by a group of so-called activists determined to break Israeli attempts to halt the flow of arms and war materiel into the Gaza strip.

Having been warned in advance that the intent of the Free Gaza movement flotilla was to shatter the Israeli blockade, the IDF prepared to board the ships and divert them to Ashdod for inspection. A member of the Free Gaza organization credited with launching the flotilla, Greta Berlin, clarified the intent of the group: "We're not trying to be a humanitarian mission."

Apparently, Israel was ill-informed that the ship carried 700 pro-Palestinian activists prepared to do whatever necessary to reach their goal. American-born pro-Palestinian activist Hawaida Arraf threw down the gauntlet with the assertion: "We fully intend to go to Gaza regardless of any intimidation or threats of violence against us. They are going to have to forcefully stop us."

According to Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon "the armada of hate and violence in support of the Hamas terror organization was a premeditated and outrageous provocation. The organizers are well-known for their ties to Global Jihad, Al-Qaeda and Hamas. They have a history of arms smuggling and deadly terror. On board the ship we found weapons that were prepared in advance and used against our forces…"

A number of the passengers aboard the Mavi Marmara Turkish passenger ship suspected of having connections with Global Jihad-affiliated terrorist organizations have refused to provide proper identification to the Israeli authorities. Many were carrying envelopes containing thousands of dollars in cash.

During a search of the ship on Tuesday a cache of bulletproof vests, night-vision goggles, and gas masks was discovered. A defense official stated, “This is the group that was behind the violent [attack] against the naval commandos. They came on board the ship prepared and after they had trained for the expected Navy takeover.”

Israel is losing the media war. Nations around the world are calling on the U.S. to abandon its only true Middle East ally. Please send you best gift today to help alert the world to the truth behind the Gaza blockade.

Click to sign the petition asking President Obama to stand with Israel.

When confronted by the Israelis, five of the six ships' captains diverted to Ashdod; the sixth was decidedly on a mission of defiance. Obviously, the mistake made by the IDF was to assume that the voyagers on board the Mavi Marmara were a charitable group. Rather, it was loaded with pro-Palestinian terrorists, not with the specified humanitarian agenda, and determined to create an international media incident.

The IDF deployed about a dozen soldiers with the intent of taking the bridge and diverting the flotilla to the Israeli port. Instead, the troops fell into the hands of an angry mob of rioters armed with clubs, knives, scissors, pepper spray, and with side arms after having disarmed several IDF soldiers.

The Israelis boarded with non-lethal paintball guns, the kind used by teens on paintball courses, and pistols they never thought they would have to unholster. Video shows the unsuspecting IDF paratroopers being assaulted as they reached the deck. One IDF soldier was thrown over a railing to a deck 30 feet below.

In a statement by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he reiterated that this was 'a clear case of self-defense because as our soldiers were inspecting these ships, they were attacked—they were almost lynched. They were attacked…and they had to defend themselves—they were going to be killed. Israel will not allow its soldiers to be lynched and neither would any other self-respecting country.'

Israel will become the target for every terrorist worldwide. Now more than ever America must stand with our only true ally in the Middle East

Sign the petition asking President Obama to stand with Israel as the tiny nation faces the wrath of the world.

Israel has maintained the 4-year blockade to halt the flow of weapons from Iran to Hamas, its armed and funded proxy in Gaza. In November 2009, the Israeli navy intercepted a huge cache of weapons headed from Iran to Hezbollah and Hamas onboard Francop, a German container ship. The markings on the materiel discovered were clearly Iranian. The ship carried some 3,000 missiles including Katyusha rockets.

The Israeli embargo against Gaza has become more powerful than rockets; it created the perfect storm, the Vietnam, for the State of Israel. The secular media, which has always been prone to call terrorists "activists," only encourages such actions.

In 2008, Israeli President Shimon Peres held a "Facing Tomorrow" conference to which he invited some of the most noted thinkers in the world. One of the conclusions of the meeting was that wars of the 21st Century would be fought first as a media war, secondly as an economic war, thirdly as a proxy war, and finally with boots on the ground. Israel has lost this media war and is well on the way to losing the economic war.

Israel ceded Gaza in hopes of achieving peace in the region; its hopes were dashed. Hamas continued to lob some 1,200 missiles across the border at innocent Jewish civilians. Despite the ongoing provocation, Israel has allowed food and humanitarian supplies into Gaza through the Red Cross and UN.

This skirmish came amid plans for a meeting between Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Barack Obama. The aim of the summit was to keep Iran at the top of the agenda, not the Palestinian Authority.

Iran found the perfect means to distract the liberal media—create a flag-waving, humanitarian crisis. The resulting propaganda-driven riots worldwide would certainly take attention from the IAEA announcement that Iran now possesses more than two tons of enriched uranium—enough for two nuclear warheads.

If you were sitting in the seat of power in ancient Persia, what would you do when confronted with new sanctions against your nuclear program? You would sponsor a David-versus-Goliath flotilla—a media extravaganza—carrying a Nobel Peace Prize winner, an American activist, and a Holocaust survivor. Central casting could not have done it better.

The question becomes: When is a humanitarian mission not a humanitarian mission? It fails the test when it is peopled with terrorists on a suicide mission.

The God of Israel is the keeper and defender of the Chosen People. He is our guard and safety as well. He defends His children—this is His promise that will never fail."  This promise is found true over and over again.   From Jerusalem Prayer Team

One Minute Prayers for America in distress

House Votes to Force Open Homosexuality Upon Our Troops
Let Us Pray.  Almighty God, we pray You condemn the actions of members of the House of Representatives who voted to force open the deviant lifestyle of homosexuality upon our military, despite overwhelming opposition by the majority of our troops who oppose the repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.'  We also know this will demoralize and undermine the effectiveness of our troops, costing lives.  We pray for a miracle that God will give courage to the Senate to filibuster this repeal, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Military Chaplain Bill Fails, For Now
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we thank You for Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) who worked hard to pass a bill that would allow a military chaplain, if called upon to lead a prayer outside of a religious service, the right to close the prayer according to the dictates of the chaplain's own conscience. Even though it has been hindered by anti-Christian complainers we ask from 2 Thessalonians 1:12 that this bill would pass so that Your name, Jesus, would be glorified through the chaplain's free speech, and souls would be saved, in Jesus Name, Amen.

National Right to Life Exposes Democrat Power Grab
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we thank you that the National Right to Life exposed the political power grab by Democrats who want to pass anti-Christian legislation suppressing free speech through their Disclose Act, which would require grass-roots activist groups to publish their donor lists, violating privacy and discouraging assembly. This unconstitutional reform would hinder people from speaking out against politicians, hurting freedom and accountability. From Proverbs 20:5 we declare the purposes of a man's heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out, like National Right to Life just did, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Oklahoma Governor Vetoes Abortion Bill
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we pray You condemn Governor Brad Henry who is evidence of Proverbs 6:17 as a man who is swift to shed innocent blood, since he just vetoed a fourth pro-life bill that would require women seeking abortions to fill out a questionnaire helping the state know why women seek abortions and provide valid information to the mother about alternatives to abortion. The Oklahoma legislature voted 33 to 15 for this bill, and we pray again they override Henry’s veto, like they already have 3 times this year, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Steve Jobs Blocks Porn on Apple IPAD Computers
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we thank You for the courageous stand by Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs who banned pornography applications on the Apple platform. He wants the iPad and iPhone revolution to lead to a porn-free world. James 1:14 confesses that we can be "tempted by evil desires when we are dragged away and enticed by our lusts.” We thank you that Jobs has not caved into the temptation of money or immorality for abusing or prostituting women, so we pray You bless him and his business, in Jesus Name, Amen.

 Boycott Progressive Insurance Who Promotes Homosexuality
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, thank you for the stand that Jamil Adair took by canceling his insurance policy because Progressive Insurance has a one hundred percent approval rating from the Homosexual Human Rights Campaign, one of the largest homosexual lobbying groups in America. We join Adair’s boycott of Progressive Insurance, as You wrote in Proverbs 14:12: "There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death." Homosexuality brings sickness and death, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Christian Convert from Islam Rifqa Bary Faces Uterine Cancer
Let Us Pray. Almighty God, we thank you for the faith of Rifqa Bary, the Ohio teenager who left Islam, and ran away from her Muslim family because she feared for her life as a Christian. Now we pray for Rifqa's health as she is now battling uterine cancer and also facing large medical bills. We pray from Jeremiah 30:17, just as Zion was outcast and You offered healing, that you would restore Rifqa's health and heal her wounds, because we know You care for her. God raise up people to support her, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Do not forget to Pray for Israel.
