Who are the watchmen? According to Ezekiel 33:1-9, this includes those called to shepherd the flocks and all supportive ministries within the para-Church charged with the care of God’s flocks. Overall, this means leaders of the Church; all pastors and associate ministers; intercessors and prophets. (Read the watchman’s warning below these prayer points.)
PRAYER FOR GOVERNMENT LEADERS & OFFICIALS (1Timothy 2:1-4)
(Job 28:11) Pray for TRUTH to be brought into the LIGHT.
(Psalm 90:8) Pray for all things hidden by deceit to be uncovered and unraveled.
Pray for all lies and evil agendas to be exposed and brought into the light.
Jeremiah 16:17, “For My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from My face, nor is their iniquity hidden from My eyes.”
Matthew 10:26, “Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.”
Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
Obadiah 1:5, ““For the day of the Lord upon all the nations is near; as you have done, it shall be done to you; your reprisal shall return upon your own head. (In modern times, this warning pertains to how the nations treat Israel.)
URGENT PRAYER: NATIONAL / INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
1. Congress & Israel left out of P5 +1 Iran Agreement (March 31 Deadline)
Under the current deal, President Obama is prepared to make the concessions Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned against; including letting Iran keep its “uranium enrichment capabilities,” putting it one step closer to a nuclear weapon. Apparently, the U.N. is supposed to take the word of President Rouhani that his nation will not use that program for evil — which as anyone who follows Iran knows, is an enormous risk.
While this White House is on the brink of a deal to relax sanctions on Iran; a few days ago their supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, led the people in chants of “Death to America” in his Nowruz (Persian New Year) address. President Obama spoke to the Iranian people in a video message on the day of Nowruz calling on them to support a nuclear deal. Ayatollah Khamenei’s response to Obama’s Nowruz message said he was asking Iranians to submit to American demands in exchange for economic relief, describing the negotiations in terms of a struggle rather than mutual benefit. The crowd then broke out in chants of “Death to America” which was repeated multiple times over the course of the hour-long speech.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), a member of the Armed Services Committee and a veteran, is demanding some accountability from the President in his talks with one of the world’s largest state sponsors of terrorism. In a letter with 46 other GOP senators, Sen. Cotton fired off a rare letter to Iranian leaders explaining that the Senate will have to approve any deal the President strikes with their country. When it comes to a matter of national security — or, in Israel’s case, national survival — hanging in the balance, conservatives refuse to sit on their hands and watch the White House negotiate away America’s future with Iran.”
2. ISRAEL: Why is President Obama abandoning the Jewish State, when the majority of U.S. citizens choose to support Israel?
The Bible prophecies us that all nations will turn against Israel in the last days — and all nations will face judgment for it — but woe unto us if it happens on our watch. Have we come to that fateful moment? Pray about the President’s actions against Israel, and the negotiations for an incredibly dangerous deal with Iran. This is the most insecure moment in the history of the U.S.-Israel relationship, and requires that all WATCHMEN continue to stand in the gap, day and night. We will be held accountable if we fail to warn and take action when the LORD commands us to do so. Much is hanging in the balance. May you and I be found faithful to the assignment (Ezekiel 33:1-9).
3. U.S. SUPREME COURT
ObamaCare to be Reviewed (April 2015)
It was a development that stunned Washington. Last Fall, the Supreme Court said it would review ObamaCare, again. This time because the IRS rewrote the law, all on its own. It will be reviewed on the “vagueness” of how the bill was written. The public has been deceived by what it claims and what they receive. This case is critical. If the Supreme Court rules against ObamaCare, it will strike down the law’s most important elements. President Obama would have to go back to the drawing board, this time dealing with a conservative majority in Congress.
Same-sex Marriage Equality (April 2015)
The U.S. Supreme Court will tackle the issue of gay marriage this term. At issue, will states be permitted to refuse gay marriage and refuse to recognize gay marriages from other states? The justices said they would review an appellate ruling that upheld bans on same-sex unions in four states. Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee are among the 14 states where gay and lesbian couples are not allowed to marry. In January, Florida became the 36th state, in addition to the District of Columbia, to allow gay marriage. In 2013, the high court struck down parts of the Defense of Marriage Act or DOMA. In a 5-4 decision, the court ruled legally marriage gay couples are entitled to the same federal benefits as heterosexual couples.
The High Court will review several other cases regarding Religious Freedom and First Amendment Rights. Read More…..
