Are Supreme Court Reversals Possible?

In light of the Supreme Court striking down Texas SB5 which would have allowed for abortion clinic guidelines to protect the safety and lives of mothers seeking abortion, many feel like this is a permanent decision. On June 29, 1972 “the U. S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that capital punishment was a violation of the Eighth Amendment prohibiting ‘cruel and unusual punishment.’ Four years later, in another ruling, the Court reversed itself.”1

“When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan.” (Proverbs 29:2; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Where God is honored, hope springs eternal. Worship Him who gives you hope!

  2. Repent for any feelings of hopelessness you may have been struggling with. Cast them off and hope again.

  3. Thank the Lord that Supreme Courts are made of men who each have an ideology. Pray for God to reseat the Court and give us righteous Justices who could reverse abortion in our lifetime!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You give hope to the hopeless! Grant me grace today to believe that all things are possible to those that believe! I repent for any place in me that says “God can’t” or “God doesn’t want to” or “God won’t.” God, You can and You want to and you will in Your perfect timing. I boldly ask You to place Justices on the U. S. Supreme Court that will someday reverse abortion in this nation! My eyes are fixed on You and on that day, Lord!   In Jesus’ life-giving Name, Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is able to seat a Supreme Court that will reverse abortion in my lifetime!
