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."
