Feb. 2 – Pray that Court Rulings regarding Human Sexuality Will Honor God
The June 2o15 Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court ruling redefined marriage for every American state to include persons of the same sex, including 31 states whose constitutions included amendments to define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. Obergefell, like Roe, strikes at the core of Gods creative order. While the Bible and the U.S. Constitution promise life, Roe gave death to millions, enabling millions to believe that taking their baby’s life was authorized by the highest authority in the land. While Obergefell promises liberty, it has brought the entire nation into bondage – the homosexuals who believe their lifestyle has been authorized by the highest authority in the land, while those who reject the ruling because of their religious faith have been punished when they live out their faith by refusing to participate in a same-sex wedding or refusing to affirm same sex marriage when commanded to do so by a military commander or employer. The Court has elevated some by sanctifying their sexual practices, while making a pariah of those who maintain fidelity to their religious faith.
“In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.” (Rom 1:18-32; Jude 1:7).
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
May God send Christian revival which alone can cleanse the hearts and heal those damaged physically, mentally and spiritually by their Supreme Court-encouraged, self-destructive behaviors. Only God can transform those whose personalities have been altered by their involvement in dangerous behaviors. May He send such a revival!
May God guide our President, who has been ambiguous in his posture toward LGBT matters, into all Truth. May he appoint pro-biblical and traditional marriage justices to the Supreme Court and judges to our federal courts.
May God’s people be given faith to believe that the wrong decisions our courts have made and the problems they have created, can be reversed. Just as the horrific Dred Scott decision was reversed.
May Life, Marriage, and the God of Creation and His created order be yet again wholly respected by the vast majority of Americans and honored in American life and law!
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we first ask You boldly to send forth a revival in this nation! Touch those who are confused, fearful and who have been wounded by the actions of our Supreme Court. The Court cannot fix their hearts. Only You can. Please grant our President wisdom and revelation on this, so that his nominees to the Court will make decisions on an historical and Constitutional basis, which pleases You. We pray that the Court would be open to reversing past wrongful decisions, so that blessing can pour out in this nation. May Life and Marriage be wholly respected in America once again. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
The heart of our nation will be turned from immorality to the Way of the Lord and we shall be a nation blessed by Him!
