5 Points of Prayer From Michele Bachmann

Mobilizing A Prayer Army
Integral to the survival of this Republic is the integrity of its voting process. People are entitled to the confidence that their votes will not be cancelled by fraudulent votes. While we work to this end in this election, we must petition God. Please consider the following message sent from our friend and former Presidential candidate Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann.

In the aftermath of the election, what is going on in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, and Nevada is nothing short of wicked. Just tonight Arizona was moved from the “blue” column to the “white” toss-up column. Our prayers are availing much! It is now up to the Body of Christ to step up.

WHAT IF we mobilize a mighty intercessory prayer army to storm the gates of heaven on behalf of the voters of these states?

If God has chosen to pronounce judgment on our nation and let it fall under the weight of its own wicked devices, then so be it. I can rest in Him knowing that I left it all on the battlefield.

The prayer strategy is simple. Join us in praying through the prayer petitions below. Then, forward this email to at least 10 friends who are prayerfully concerned about this nation and the integrity of our electoral system. The original distribution was to 20 prayer warriors. In only 6 generations of forwarding this letter, it has the potential to reach 20 million prayer warriors!

And this is the confidence we have toward Him, that if we seek anything according to His will, He hears us. (1 John 5:4)

Will you join us in praying over these 5 STRATEGIC PRAYER POINTS and forwarding this email to other people who are prayerful concerned about our nation?

PRAYER POINT ONE: Expose and hold accountable those who practice the seven things God hates and He says are detestable to Him: According to Proverbs 6:16-17, There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to Him:
1. haughty eyes 2. a lying tongue 3. hands that shed innocent blood 4. a heart that devises wicked plans 5. feet that are quick to rush into evil 6. a false witness who pours out lies 7. a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

Heavenly Father, we humbly ask that in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, and Nevada, please silence every lying tongue and convict the hearts of those who devise wicked plans intended to invalidate and nullify the expressed will of the voters. Stop those who would be quick to rush into evil. Expose and silence every false witness who utters lies and operates in deceit. Thwart the efforts of every person who attempts to stir conflict within their community.”

PRAYER POINT TWO: Expose all wickedness intended to steal, kill and destroy the electoral process in these battleground states.

Heavenly Father, we humbly ask that in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, and Nevada that you “reveal deep and hidden things. You know what lies in darkness. Light dwells with You.” (Daniel 2:22) Please bring to light and expose every lie, deceit, deception, misrepresentation and illegal act intended to “steal, kill and destroy” the electoral process and the expressed will of the citizens and these states. (John 10:10).

PRAYER POINT THREE: Frustrate those who seek to steal, kill, and destroy electoral integrity and authentic, accurate vote counts in these battleground states.
Heavenly Father, please “Frustrate the plotting of the shrewd so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise or attain success.” May no weapon formed intended to steal, kill and destroy the authentic, accurate vote count and expressed will of the people in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, and Nevada be allowed to prosper.” (Isaiah 54:17).

PRAYER POINT FOUR: Frustrate and thwart the plans of those who attempt to sabotage the state’s election laws and subvert the expressed will of the people.
Heavenly Father, please “Capture the wise by their own shrewdness and quickly thwart the advice of the cunning” (Job 5:12) whose intention is to sabotage and subvert state and federal election law and the expressed will of the people in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, and Nevada. “Hold them guilty O LORD, by their own devices let them fall.” (Psalm 5:10)

PRAYER POINT FIVE: Psalm 5 for protection and favor for President Trump:
Heavenly Father, please “Give ear to President Trump’s words, O LORD, consider President Trump’s groaning. Heed the sound of his cry for help, His King and His God. For to You does he pray. In the morning O LORD, you will hear his voice; in the morning he will order his prayer to you and eagerly watch. For you are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness; no evil dwells with You. The boastful shall to stand before Your enemies; You hate all who do iniquity. Destroy those who speak falsehood. You abhor the man of bloodshed and deceit. But as for President Trump, by Your abundant lovingkindness, he will enter Your house. At your holy temple he will bow in reverence for you. Lord, please lead President Trump in Your righteousness because of his foes. Make his way straight before him. There is nothing reliable in what they say; their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongue. Hold them guilty, O God, by their own devices let them fall! In the multitude of their transgressions thrust them out for they are rebellious against You. But let President Trump take refuge in You and be glad. Let him ever sing for joy. May you shelter him. May he who loves Your name exult in You. Bless President Trump, O LORD. Surround him with favor as with a shield.

Heavenly Father, please give supernatural wisdom, strength and discernment to the President and his advisors regarding how to navigate the road ahead.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus! Amen.

Recommendations for Voting on the State-Wide Ballot Amendments

Below are explanations for the state-wide amendments that everyone will see on their ballot.  Local amendments are not included but sample ballots can be found here by county.  These recommendations are not “official”.  They are formed by consensus of our legislative team and we are comfortable sharing them with you.  We hope they are helpful.  The italicized words are what you will see on the ballot.  Our comments are in red. 

QUICK REFERENCE:
Amendment 1: YES Amendment 2: NO Amendment 3: YES
Amendment 4: NO Amendment 5: YES Amendment 6: YES

AMENDMENT 1:  YES
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to amend Article VIII of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, now appearing as Section 177 of the Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, to provide that only a citizen of the United States has the right to vote.

Explanation: Only citizens of the U.S. can vote in Alabama.  This amendment needs no extra explanation and should already be in the Constitution.  We recommend a “yes” vote.

AMENDMENT 2:  NO
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to increase the membership of the Judicial Inquiry Commission and further provide for the appointment of the additional members; further provide for the membership of the Court of the Judiciary and further provide for the appointment of the additional members; further provide for the process of disqualifying an active judge; repeal provisions providing for the impeachment of Supreme Court Justices and appellate judges and the removal for cause of the judges of the district and circuit courts, judges of the probate courts, and judges of certain other courts by the Supreme Court; delete the authority of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to appoint an Administrative Director Courts; provide the Supreme Court of Alabama with authority to appoint an Administrative Director of Courts; require the Legislature to establish procedures for the appointment of the Administrative Director of Courts; delete the requirement that a district court hold court in each incorporated municipality with a population of 1,000 or more where there is no municipal court; provide that the procedure for the filling of vacancies in the office of a judge may be changed by local constitutional amendment ; delete certain language relating to the position of constable holding more than one state office; delete a provision providing for the temporary maintenance of the prior judicial system; repeal the office of circuit solicitor; and make certain nonsubstantive stylistic changes.

This act creates a process to fill vacancies in the position of Administrative Director of Courts. This amendment proposes six changes to the state’s judicial system. In summary, this amendment:

  1. Provides that county district courts do not have to hold city court in a city with a population of less than 1,000; (The district courts have jurisdiction over all matters related to municipal ordinance in cities with a population of less than 1000 that has no municipal court.  This change just says that the judge no longer hears such cases within the city, but will hear them in the regular district court in the county seat.)  
  2.  Allows the Alabama Supreme Court, rather than the Chief Justice, to appoint the Administrative Director of Courts;   (The Constitution says that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court has responsibility for administering all matters related to the operation of the courts and will appoint the Administrative Director of Courts to assist him or her. This amendment would give this appointment to the full Supreme Court.  The Chief Justice needs someone who will support and work with him or her.  This amendment could create disharmony on the court if the Administrator is responsible to the Chief Justice, but whose job depends on the entire court.)  
  3. Increases from 9 to 11 the total membership of the Judicial Inquiry Commission and determines who appoints each member (the Judicial Inquiry Commission evaluates ethics complaints filed against judges);  We can’t find a reason for this change in the legislation that passed this amendment.
  4.  Allows the Governor, rather than the Lieutenant Governor, to appoint a member of the Court of the Judiciary.  The Court of the Judiciary hears complaints filed by the Judicial Inquiry Commission.  
  5. Prevents a judge from being automatically disqualified from holding office simply because a complaint was filed with the Judiciary Inquiry Commission; and
  6.  Provides that a judge can be removed from office only by the Court of the Judiciary. (Innocent until proven guilty)

FINAL ANALYSIS: This amendment has some good points that we like but number two is bothersome. Since this is an all points or nothing vote, we recommend a “no” vote.  There should not be this many different issues in one amendment.

AMENDMENT 3:  YES
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that a judge, other than a judge of probate, appointed to fill a vacancy would serve an initial term until the first Monday after the second Tuesday in January following the next general election after the judge has completed two years in office.

This amendment changes the initial term of a judge that is appointed to fill a vacancy.   It does not apply to probate judges.  Under current law, the initial term of office for a person appointed to fill a vacancy in a judgeship shall last until the end of the term remaining in the judgeship in question if the appointed judge has completed one year in office or until the remainder of the original term of office, whichever is longer.  Under this scenario the time an appointed judge could serve without an election would vary depending on the length of time remaining in the initial six-year term of office.   Under this amendment, if an appointed judge has served in the appointed position for 2 years, the judgeship shall be filled by election in the next General Election.  This would mean the appointed judge eliminates the option to serve until the end of the original term, but extends the time he or she could serve until having to stand for election.  We recommend a “yes” vote.

AMENDMENT 4:  NO
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to authorize the Legislature to recompile the Alabama Constitution and submit it during the 2022 Regular Session, and provide a process for its ratification by the.) voters of this state.

Alabama’s constitution can be changed only during a constitutional convention or when a majority of voters approve a constitutional amendment.  If a majority of voters vote “yes” on Amendment 4, the Alabama Legislature, when it meets in 2022, would be allowed to draft a rearranged version of the state constitution. This draft could only:

  1.  remove racist language,
  2.  remove language that is repeated or no longer applies,
  3.  combine language related to economic development, and
  4.  combine language that relates to the same county. No other changes could be made. Even if passed by the Alabama Legislature, this rearranged version would not become law until it was approved by a majority of voters.

The Alabama Constitution is long for a reason. Much of the additions to it are local laws.   However, in light of more discussion and a closer look at the enabling legislation we have changed our recommendation to a “NO” vote.  We continue to support Article by Article revisions to our Constitution.  If this amendment does pass it still will require one more vote of the people before becoming law so we are not too worried about it at this time.

AMENDMENT 5: YES
Relating to Franklin County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that a person is not liable for using deadly physical force in self-defense or in the defense of another person on the premises of a church under certain conditions.

Alabama’s “Stand Your Ground” law allows a person to legally use physical force against another person under certain conditions. The law does not require the person to retreat before using physical force.  If the amendment passes statewide and also within Franklin County it will add churches in Franklin County to be covered by the Stand Your Ground law. Since this would only take effect if the voters of Franklin County approve it, we recommend a “YES” vote. 

AMENDMENT 6: YES
Relating to Lauderdale County, proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that a person is not liable for using deadly physical force in self-defense or in the defense of another person on the premises of a church under certain conditions.

Alabama’s “Stand Your Ground” law allows a person to legally use physical force against another person under certain conditions. The law does not require the person to retreat before using physical force.  If the amendment passes statewide and also within Lauderdale County it will add churches in Lauderdale County to be covered by the Stand Your Ground law. Since this would only take effect if the voters of Lauderdale County approve it, we recommend a “YES” vote.

Watch Our Updated Presentation on the 
U.S. Constitution Narrated by Phyllis Schlafly

FANTASTIC resource to share with everyone

CLICK TO WATCH

Today, September 17, in 1787, the United States Constitution was signed.   As Delegate Ben Franklin exited Independence Hall, he was famously asked, “What have you given us, Sir?”  His reply, “A Republic, Madam, if you can keep it,” rings especially true today.   We Americans need a refresher course on the Constitutional principles which have enabled us over the years and still today to build the “more perfect union” for which we together strive.

The “We the People” presentation linked here was originally written and narrated by Phyllis Schlafly in 1987 in honor of the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution.  It was approved by the Commission on the Bicentennial on which Phyllis served and it was shown in slide format by Eagle Forum volunteers from coast to coast to Americans of all occupations, ages, races and creeds.  The video footage and pictures have been updated for online viewing, but the narration is the Phyllis Schlafly original.   Its truths are timeless and critical.  It focuses on these aspects of our Constitution:

  • Why the Constitution is the fountainhead of our great religious, political and economic liberties
  • How the Constitution developed from the Declaration of Independence and Articles of Confederation
  • Who were the writers and what ideas they brought to Philadelphia the hot summer of 1787
  • What are the basic principles, such as sovereignty of “We the People” and separation of powers
  • How the executive, legislative and judicial branches are separate yet function together
  • How our constitutional government differs from the parliamentary system
  • How our Constitution laid the foundation for our free and prosperous economy
  • Why its composition was said to be divinely inspired and its adoption, a miracle
  • How the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to guarantee our individual freedoms of religion, speech, press and property 
  • … And Much More!

Be encouraged with us that “our Constitution is still standing proud”!  Let’s keep it that way.

Each of us must act now to preserve and protect the American dream of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for every citizen.  What will you do?   

Pray for those in authority as well as for those who do not understand American exceptionalism and seek to destroy it. Pray for a return to God in accord with I Chron. 7:14.   “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land.”

 

Will you join this march as we call out to God to heal our land?

Introducing our new, ongoing, monthly series: “What’s Good About America”

#2  Free Enterprise by, Rev. John Killian

            The free enterprise system is so identified with the heritage of our country, that economic success is spoken of as, “living the American dream.” The description is not without merit, as the founding of civilized life and the establishment of American independence on this Continent was certainly the catalyst for innovation and invention, not just in the Western Hemisphere but across the globe. We have no need to wonder why the entire world looks at our country as the economic engine that scatters wealth across the globe.

            Why is the economic system of the United States so powerful? Why does the world see our country as the source of so much wealth and promise? Other continents certainly compare with sheer workforce and natural resources.  What distinguishes American prosperity from that of other countries?

            Our country was founded upon principles of liberty and property. The right of the individual to private property was respected. On what grounds did the American colonies declare independence? Thomas Jefferson, the primary author of the Declaration of Independence, wrote in the Declaration concerning King George, “He has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their Substance”. Our Founders resisted the idea of a large, controlling bureaucracy that hindered commerce.

            As mentioned, Jefferson was the primary author of the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson’s dream for an American economy is stated, “Agriculture, manufactures, commerce, and navigation, the four pillars of our prosperity, are the most thriving when left most free to individual enterprise.”

            James Madison was the leading influence in the crafting of the United States Constitution. Madison expressed his views on private enterprise, “The enviable condition of the people of the United States is often too much ascribed to the physical advantages of their soil & climate …. But a just estimate of the happiness of our country will never overlook what belongs to the fertile activity of a free people and the benign influence of a responsible government.

            At the zenith of US-Soviet relations in 1942, a Gallup Poll showed that twenty-five percent of Americans favored a socialistic economy. In 2019, Gallup found forty-two percent of Americans now prefer a socialistic economy. Obviously, the barrage of advocacy for socialism in our educational institutions, among the media, and in the arts have filtered down to the average citizenry. As Constitutionalists, we must seize the day to inform a new generation of the superiority of the free enterprise system and the benefits of free enterprise to our land.

#1 Why We Have a Republic, Not a Democracy, by Rev. John Killian

         When Benjamin Franklin left the meeting of the Constitutional Convention, he was asked “what have you given us?”. Franklin wisely answered “ a Republic, if you can keep it.” In our pledge of allegiance, we pledge to the flag of the United States and “to the Republic for which it stands.”

            Why quibble over terminology? Is this just the same principle with different titles? Why is this important?

            Consider these quotes from our founders: John Adams, Second President of these United States said in 1814, “Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide” James Madison, primary author of the US Constitution said in Federalist Paper 10, “Measures are too often decided, not according to the rules of justice and the rights of the minor party, but by the superior force of an interested and overbearing majority.”

            Edmund Randolph said, “that in tracing these evils to their origin, every man had found it in the turbulence and follies of democracy.” Then-Chief Justice John Marshall observed “Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is between order and chaos.”

            What about our enemies? Vladmir Lenin said “Democracy is indispensable to socialism.” Karl Marx, father of Communism, went farther and said, “Democracy is the road to Socialism.”

            Let’s break down the words. The word Democracy comes from two Greek words: Demos which means the people and cracy which means to rule. Thus, democracy is the rule of the people.

            What could be wrong with that? Let us consider the word Republic. Republic comes from a Latin phrase res publica which describes a government not ruled by private concerns, thus, without a monarch. Thus, the ownership of the government is a public matter.

            The French definition of Republic is “state in which supreme power rests in the people via elected representatives”. Our system is a Constitutional Republic, where our people rule within the confines or guidelines of a stated document that prescribes the limits of government.

            James Bovard opined, “Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.” What are the differences between a Republic and a Democracy?

  1. A Democracy means that the people rule. The masses can mandate policy. But in a Republic, the people can mandate policy, only up to the limit of the rights of an individual. In a Democracy, the majority can determine to take away your rights, your life or property. In a Republic, you live with the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.
  2. A Democracy means that rule comes by the all-powerful majority. In a Republic, the majority cannot cross the boundary of personal rights. A Republic has a written constitution of basic rights that protect the minority from being completely unrepresented or overridden by the majority.
  3. A Democracy has free elections. But a Republic has free elections governed by a Constitution and set within boundaries so that individuals are represented.
  4. In a Democracy, religious freedom is determined by the will of the majority. A majority can limit the freedom of a minority. In a Constitutional Republic, the rights of the people to worship freely or to abstain from worship is guaranteed.
  5. Issues of free choice and decisions of private property are set by the population in a democracy. In a Republic, these decisions are set by the individuals, with limits set by the Constitution.
  6. In a democracy, minority rights are overridden by the majority. Conversely, Republic system protects the rights of minority groups or an individual.
  7. In a democracy, the rule of majority people prevails whereas in the case of the republic the rule of law prevails.
