|Suggested prayers ...|
Lord, we ask for leaders, a judicial system and judges who adhere to the original intent of our founding documents and their many connections to Biblical principles.
We pray for a true and clear understanding of justice according to Your Word and Your perspective.
May justice be established in America in accord with Your sense of justice, not our own.
We pray for Your protection from attempts to redefine justice for political gain.
We ask You to convict, transform and protect those who are out of Your will. We ask You to encourage, strengthen and protect those who honor and follow You.
We ask You for judges who will follow constitutional principles rather than ruling according to pre-chosen outcomes, political agendas or with reliance on international law.
We pray that courts will recognize parents’ fundamental rights to the care, custody and control of their children.
We ask for accurate rulings over first amendment issues, and an awareness in our country that the words “separation of church and state” are found nowhere in any one of our founding documents. We ask for a reversal of rulings which have inaccurately interpreted and established “separation” as a Constitutional principle.
We profoundly grieve over the fact that rights are being claimed in this country that go against You - the One we say our rights come from in America. We beseech You on behalf of our country to intervene and provide a way for the reversal of rulings that continue to turn America away from You.
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union,
establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense,
promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,
do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.
President Thomas Jefferson – 1781
