Praying for the Supreme Court Justices
A friend of mine suggested that we pray for each of the justices daily “between now and when the recent Supreme Court decisions are released, which could be as late as June 30th. I think this is a good idea, therefore, would you be willing to pick one judge to pray for and concentrate your praying on these two cases until the decisions come out? We want a 9 to 0 decision in NIFLA v Becerra and at least a 6-3 or 7-2 decision in Masterpiece Cakeshop v Colorado Civil Rights gay wedding/baker case.” (See GH15 on May 10 for details.) “Each judge has an individual decision to make on each case and we should pray for them individually right now.” (Allan E. Parker)1
“Happy are those who reject the advice of evil people, who do not follow the example of sinners or join those who have no use for God. Instead, they find joy in obeying the Law of the Lord, and they study it day and night.” (Psalm 1:1-2; GNT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:1
- Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch are firmly in the camp of religious liberty and life. Pray they will be strong in their stance and influential with the other justices.
- Justice Anthony Kennedy and Chief Justice John Roberts, Jr. are pro-life, but could be swing votes on the gay wedding case. Pray that they take a strong stand for righteousness and life.
- Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan are all strong pro-abortion and homosexuality advocates. However, they are also strong free speech advocates. If they put the abortion and homosexuality issues aside, they may rule on free speech or religious liberty grounds.
- Justice Stephen Breyer seems to be the strongest proponent for keeping the California law challenging the rights of crisis centers. He is a very liberal judge. Please pray that God would grace him with a change of heart.
A prayer you can pray:
We bring our nine Supreme Court Justices before You, Judge of the Universe. We ask You to determine the outcome of these cases before our Supreme Court. Lord, You will judge with righteous judgement. You will judge fairly. Encourage Justices Thomas, Alito and Gorsuch, those that have chosen life and righteousness. Mantle them with influence before the other justices. Let Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Kennedy make that same strong stand. Lord, reveal Yourself in the fullness of Your love and mercy to our most liberal justices on the Court. Their eyes are blinded by the desire they have to help others. They do not understand what they are doing to the culture long-term with their liberal decisions. May they have a change of heart and rule constitutionally and not according to their own human thoughts. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
I decree that God’s love for America and the prayers of the Saints will shift the Court!
