An Urgent Plea for Prayer for Federal Judges
And Our U. S. Constitution
May 4, 2001
America's annual National Day of Prayer has just passed. The country is now entering one of the most critical periods in its history--the time when the new President, George W. Bush, will start naming his choices to sit on the benches of America's federal courts and will hopefully turn the judiciary in a new direction. For fifty years, federal judges have been devastating the American constitutional system:
In summary, America has become more and more a government of men, not of law. In such perilous times as these, we of Eagle Forum's Court Watch urge you to join us in a Month of National Prayer for Federal Judges and our U. S. Constitution, concluding on May 31, 2001. President Bush has repeatedly expressed his intention to re-shape the federal judiciary into its intended form--an instrument of liberty and justice for all, respectful of, and committed to, the Constitution and its basic values. The powerful and resourceful opposing forces have repeatedly expressed their commitment to keep the Constitution as a document which means only "what the judges say it is." And in the hearings over John Ashcroft's nomination to be Attorney-General, these opponents clearly demonstrated the type of ferocious and bloody warfare they intend to mount against good judicial nominees and any other efforts to reform the runaway federal judiciary.
It is clear that "we wrestle not against flesh and blood," but "against spiritual wickedness in high places." The spiritual weapon of prayer is therefore essential in our deadly struggle. We urge you to join us throughout the month of May as we engage in special prayer for the following:
The forces arrayed against a Godly constitutional system thus seem to be overwhelming. But may we join together in a time of unprecedented prayer warfare, claiming the promise God made to His people more than twenty-eight hundred years ago and recorded for our encouragement in II Chron. 20:15
BE NOT AFRAID, NEITHER BE DISMAYED BY REASON OF THIS
