I Prayed have prayed
We pray that justice would be brought forth and any corruption be exposed and prosecuted.

Editorial Note: As we share the report on the General Flynn case, it is important to note that our IFA intercessors had a time of prayer with Attorney Sidney Powell in a special truth and justice Prayer Call in October.  She greatly appreciated the intercession from that call and has since stayed in touch with IFA with updates and her appreciation for our prayer.  Powell reached out to IFA to share the information in her latest motion, with the supporting evidence so that we could pray.  As you may see her on FOX News or read articles about the case, know that she is asking for prayer, values the role of intercession, and has counted IFA as an important partner in her effort to seek justice and expose corruption. Thank you for praying in the past about this case and issue. We encourage you to keep praying.

From the Federalist:

Yesterday, Michael Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, filed a Motion to Withdraw his Guilty Plea [see that motion and supporting evidence HERE], arguing the government breached its obligations under the plea agreement the retired general had entered with the special counsel’s office in late 2017. Prosecutors had promised in that plea agreement to “file a departure motion pursuant to Section 5K1.1 of the Sentencing Guidelines” if Flynn provided substantial assistance to the government.

The government kept that pledge—until it didn’t.

IFA hosted Attorney Sidney Powell on a special Prayer Call to pray about this issue.

On December 4, 2018, prosecutors working for the special counsel’s office filed a Memorandum in Aid of Sentencing, stating that the government has moved for a downward departure pursuant to Section 5K1.1, to reflect Flynn’s “substantial assistance to the government.”

Section 5K1.1 authorizes a judge to depart from the sentencing guideline—a set of standards used to assess an appropriate sentencing range for a defendant—if the government files a motion “stating that the defendant has provided substantial assistance in the investigation or prosecution of another person who has committed an offense . . .” A court cannot depart from the guidelines under Section 5K1.1, unless the prosecution files such a motion.

The government reiterated its position on December 18, 2018, at Flynn’s originally scheduled sentencing hearing. “Mr. Flynn should receive probation,” prosecutors said, with lawyer Brandon Van Grack, who represented the special counsel’s office, “thoroughly prais[ing] Mr. Flynn, telling the court: ‘I’d like to highlight that General Flynn has held nothing back, nothing in his extensive cooperation with the Special Counsel’s Office. He’s answered every question that’s been asked. I believe they feel that he’s answered them truthfully, and he has. He’s complied with every request that’s been made, as has his counsel. Nothing has been held back.”

Prosecutors added that Flynn had “provided substantial assistance to the attorneys in the Eastern District of Virginia in obtaining th[e] charging document” for its prosecution of Flynn’s former business partner, Bijan Rafiekian.

But a week ago, in its Supplemental Memorandum of Sentencing, prosecutors reneged on their promise. . . .

That’s a problem, because prosecutors already admitted that Flynn had provided substantial assistance to the government “in obtaining th[e] charging document” for the prosecution of Flynn’s former business partner, and the plea agreement requires the government to file a 5K1.1 motion if Flynn provided substantial assistance. Further, there is nothing in the plea agreement that purports to provide the government with the power to withdraw a 5K1.1 motion for substantial assistance.

In short, the government breached the plea agreement.

Realizing their misstep, prosecutors dispatched a last-minute letter to Powell on Monday, seeking to “clarify” their position. The government attorneys first framed their refusal to support a 5K1.1 reduction as based on their “assessment” of Flynn’s assistance “under the totality of the circumstances.” Prosecutors, however, then quickly pivoted to a question of prejudice, suggesting that since Flynn’s guideline range would remain 0 to 6 months with or without credit for substantial assistance, there’s no dispute.

But there is. The government can’t “have its cake and eat it too,” as Powell put it: “The government breached the plea agreement when it filed the new sentencing memo,” withdrawing the previously filed—and required—5K1.1 substantial assistance motion. . . .

Specifically, Powell filed a copy of the draft statement of offense that establishes that an earlier version of that document included a statement that when the FARA statement was filed, “in truth and in fact, however, Flynn then and there knew” the truth about the details misrepresented in the filling. That language was deleted in the final version of the statement of offense to which Flynn agreed.

That deletion is huge: It shows that Powell isn’t playing word games—the government is.

The government knew that Flynn objected to that characterization of the FARA filing and prosecutors agreed to delete that language from the statement of offense. Yet they then demanded Flynn testify at his former business partner’s trial that he knew at the time the FARA filings were submitted that they were fraudulent. When Flynn refused, the government cast him as a co-conspirator and reneged on its promise to seek a reduction for substantial assistance.

While this evidence provides Powell a solid argument that the prosecution sought to push Flynn to lie, that might not be enough to carry the day with Judge Sullivan. But, as Powell’s memorandum made clear, she is not nearly close to done defending Flynn—she just needs more “time to brief many alternate reasons for the withdrawal of his plea.”

Father, I see a lock on the door of the unrighteous. They are stuck, until they repent. The lock on the door of the righteous has been unlocked, the key has been given to the righteous.
I declare that those is government who have lied and bore false witness must come under the authority of the righteous. The key has been taken from the evildoers and has been given to the righteous.
Amen

Dear Father, You are the ultimate Judge of all people. I petition You to bring true justice to Michael Flynn. Lord, we have seen a justice system tipped in favor of those in power. I pray you intervene on behalf of Michael Flynn to allow the scales to be balanced so true justice will be served. I break the bonds of corruption in this case by the power of the Holy Spirit. Shine your light so brightly that every secret and hidden agenda is exposed for all to see. Turn against the perpetrators, and may the hunters realize they are now the hunted. Lord it seems to many of us that the strongholds of the enemy run deep and strong. We are beginning to see cracks in the enemies camp, I pray for continued pressure to be put on the vulnerable areas by people like Sydney Powell. Give them strength and wisdom to fight against this evil. Give them the e spiritual weapons needed to defeat the enemy. I pray the for the truth to be revealed to set the enemy back on its heels and off balance. I pray for one blow after another be dealt to put fear in them. May they begin to retreat in panic and lose all sense of control. May this stronghold be completely defeated.

I lift up Michael Flynn to you in this time of trial. You know his heart and his motives to seek out the Truth in a corrupt government that used situations for their own gain. The powers in control wanted him silenced. Be his mouthpiece dear God and speak forth the Truth on his behalf. Exonerate him and use this entire saga for Your glory. Comfort him and give him understanding as you did Job, to realize a purpose for all this suffering and loss that has occurred. Lift him up and direct his eyes on You so he may grow and become even stronger through this ordeal. Surround him with believers that can give him Godly encouragement to strengthen him and prepare him for the next chapter in his life.
We thank you Jesus for sending the Holy Spirit to give us the same power that raised Lazarus from the dead. I use this power now to declare all these things in Jesus might name.

Father God,
I ask that you continue to give Sidney Powell insight, understanding, knowledge, discernment, revelation, and great wisdom how to proceed.
I pray for your Holy Spirit to guide her thinking and I pray for Your complete protection over her and her family. Continue to give her Your courage and boldness.
I pray that the outcome of this case will be a great victory for Your Kingdom.
I pray, Lord, for Your conviction of sin and righteousness to fall upon government prosecutors who are acting in corrupt ways. I pray that they humble themselves and turn to Jesus for the salvation of their souls. Do not allow them to be deceived.
Father God, please cause a great wave of transforming revival to break out in Washington, DC and permeate every aspect of our government in Jesus name. Amen.

Thank you Father God for a lawyer who believes in the power of prayer.

We pray to the supreme judge the one over all the earth. The one Jesus referred to Luke 18:7. “And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him though he bears long with them.” Jesus said, and we agree with Him. “I tell you that He will avenge SPEEDLY, Nevertheless when the Son of Man comes will He find faith on the earth?”

Yes we will have faith in Your intercession. hallelujah Jesus is Lord. He intercedes day and night. Thank you Jesus

Thank you Jesus that you bring righteousness to all the oppressed. Psalms 139

I pray that through this you bring to light all the hidden things done in the darkness. That truth will set us free. That your truth will March on. Glory glory hallelujah

Thank You Father God for exposing all the lies, and replacing these with Your truths. Thank You that Your will be done, in earth as it is in heaven. You Are The One Who restores all that has been stolen or taken. You do above and beyond all that we can ever ask, think, or imagine, according to Your Holy Spirit’s power. Ephesians 3:21. In Jesus Name. Amen and amen.
