Chaps In Cindy Jacobs, Reformation Prayer Alert
May 24, 2010
Dear Reformation Prayer Network Intercessors,
Please know how deeply you are appreciated by Mike and I, and all of the apostolic leaders within the Reformation Prayer Network for partnering with us in prayer.
I know that you are spending your time, resources and energy in a task that for the most part, is not seen or acknowledged. As I have prayed for you, I felt strongly in my heart to provide you with brief teaching videos from time to time to sow back into your life, while helping to bring us into a unified Biblical perspective within this prayer movement.
In this first of many RPN Teaching Videos, I teach out of the Ephesians 6 passage about the heavens–the unseen realm–and our right and authority, as believers, for dealing with principalities and powers in heavenly places. Let us take up the armor of God so that we may stand in the day of evil, fill all things, and make known the manifold wisdom of God in the heavenly places.
This is a time to “turn the battle at the gate” and shift the nation in a huge way. I am asking you to please intercede fervently about the U.S. Supreme Court nomination, as well as the upcoming U.S. elections.
The President’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan, is a social liberal with no judicial experience, and she is allegedly a lesbian. Among many other points of concern, Kagan possesses an incredibly hostile view of the military, opposing “don’t ask, don’t tell”, and she endorses presidential control of federal agencies on domestic issues as well as the federal banning of certain books, pamphlets and “hate speech”–a violation of First Amendment rights. For more information:

- Roundup of Articles on Kagan from FRC’s thecloakroomblog.org
Let us pray that the Senate Judiciary Committee would thoroughly and diligently examine Kagan’s qualifications. May the new Supreme Court Justice pick be someone who will uphold righteousness in this Nation. Here are some action steps, outlined by Faith2Action.org, which we can take:
1.The following seven Republicans sadly voted for Kagan in 2009 in the 61-31 vote to confirm her as Solicitor General. Please call each to say “oppose and filibuster Elena Kagan” right away. Let’s seize momentum! Kyl (R-AZ, 202-224-4521), Hatch (R-UT, 202-224-5251), Coburn (R-OK, 202-224-5754), Lugar (R-IN, 202-224-4814), Snowe (R-ME, 202-224-5344), Collins (R-ME, 202-224-2523), Gregg (R-NH, 202-224-3324). Also please call new Senator Scott Brown (R-MA, 202-224-4543)
2. Send correspondence to the offices of your Senators.
a. Chaplain Klingenschmitt’s Pray in Jesus’ Name organization can send a fax petition to all 100 U.S. Senators, or a couple of smaller groups of swing-vote or Judiciary Committee Senators on your behalf, opposing this nomination. Click here for details on sending your petitions.
As for the 2010 U.S. elections, I urge you to take note of who is running in your state at every level, and where they stand on the issues–and vote righteously. We all know that we are seriously reaping from a whole generation of believers, that as a whole, have not paid adequate attention to the election process and, as the Body of Christ in general, have not voted, or have not voted responsibly. Let us be the Salt and Light we are called to be, exercising our right and responsibility to vote with Scriptural convictions. Here is an excellent resource to help you make informed choices:
How I thank God for the Reformation Prayer Network and your sacrificial labor to shift the nation. I am asking God to give you the strength to keep fighting the good fight of faith!
I pray that you are blessed and encouraged by the attached RPN Teaching Video: Wresting in The Heavens.
With you in battle,
Reformation Prayer Network
