I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray for Justice Alito, whom You have appointed for such a time as this. We pray that You would bless him and his wife, and that You would empower and strengthen the Supreme Court.
Reading Time: 5 minutes

For the past four years, astute citizens have observed a strange dichotomy. The Supreme Court has been trending back to the original meaning and intent of the Constitution and the nation’s laws. No more the wild law-making errors of Courts that made up so-called rights to kill unborn babies. This Court is experiencing a long-needed correction. You could call it justice.

Post a prayer for your state!


At the same time, I see evidence of growing injustice. Individuals who were present or near the Capitol on January 6 have been detained without formal charges or coerced into pleading guilty to crimes they claim they did not commit. This starkly contrasts with the leniency shown by progressive prosecutors towards other offenders. Notable figures who questioned the election results have suffered significant personal and professional losses, and many still face litigation.

While some are prosecuted with unusual zeal, others are not hampered in their lawless and unruly behavior. Among them are the “protestors” who continue to harass certain members of the Supreme Court at their homes.

And that leads us to Justice Samuel Alito and Mrs. Martha-Ann Alito.

I wonder if law librarian Martha-Ann imagined where they would be today when she agreed to marry law clerk Sam Alito. Did she know about his description in the 1972 Princeton yearbook: “Sam intends to go to law school and eventually to warm a seat on the Supreme Court.”

On first read, that lofty goal might have been hubris or arrogance. But Grace Bolge, Justice Alito’s ninth-grade Latin teacher, indicates otherwise: “He was a wonderful student,” she told The Washington Times. “However, I have to say he was never a rah-rah cheerleading student. If anything, you could call him humble. He could have shown off because the kids knew he was bright, but he was not attention-grabbing.

So where did this desire to serve on the Supreme Court come from, if not from ego? It is a perfect example of Ephesians 2:10, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

We are each made for a divine purpose. God began reversing Roe v. Wade before it was even decided by stirring in Sam Alito the desire to serve on the Supreme Court. I have no idea what gave this son of two teachers the boldness to write the decision that corrected decades of wrong constitutional jurisprudence and just plain bad law. But I know that his leadership on the Court is part of the divine purpose of his life.

Supernatural forces oppose divine purposes. This is a truth evident throughout the Bible.

The attacks on Justice Alito began before the consequential Dobbs case was even heard. We know now that his wife was attacked as well. In his letter this week to the Senate, Justice Alito described what must be only a small portion of what Martha-Ann Alito endured and endures:

… I note that she was greatly distressed at the time due, in large part, to a very nasty neighborhood dispute in which I had no involvement. A house on the street displayed a sign attacking her personally, and a man who was living in the house at the time trailed her all the way down the street and berated her in my presence using foul language, including what I regard as the vilest epithet that can be addressed to a woman.

This very personal attack on Mrs. Alito by a neighbor prompted her to fly an upside-down American flag, which she told a Washington Post reporter is “an international signal of distress.” Can you blame her for sending a signal of distress?

And I want to point out again that this was before the leaked Dobbs decision, before the personal harassment of justices at their homes, and before the failed assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

When we read about prominent Democratic politicians demanding Justice Alito’s recusal because of his wife flying an upside-down flag, we must remember this context. What we see played out is a personal attack for political reasons.

As President of Intercessors for America, I am passionate about praying for the nation’s elected and appointed leaders, including Supreme Court justices. Leading up to the historic Dobbs decision, IFA organized daily prayer for every Supreme Court justice, their clerks, and the key lawyers on both sides. We prayed for each one by name for more than 50 days. We also prayed for their families, not knowing what Mrs. Alito had suffered. But God knew, and I believe that He orchestrated our unusual prayer effort in advance of the catastrophic leak of the Dobbs decision and the very real threats and intimidation facing the justices and their families.

It’s no coincidence that the second flag debacle involves the Appeal to Heaven flag that Mrs. Alito displayed at their summer home. This flag is very important to me. The story and meaning behind it have always resonated with me.

The motto came from the philosopher John Locke, whose ideas were instrumental to the birth of the United States. He said, “And where the body of the people or any single man, is deprived of their right, or is under the exercise of a power without right, and have no appeal on earth, then they have a liberty to appeal to heaven … .” This sentiment is the heart of how the community of Intercessors for America prays. Whether we find justice on earth, we know we have the freedom and privilege to pray, intercede, and appeal to the sovereign God over heaven and earth.

Why did Mrs. Alito fly that flag? Justice Alito wrote this to Senators Durbin and Whitehouse: “I was not familiar with the ‘Appeal to Heaven’ flag when my wife flew it. She may have mentioned that it dates back to the American Revolution, and I assumed she was flying it to express a religious and patriotic message. I was not aware of any connection between this historic flag and the ‘Stop the Steal Movement,’ and neither was my wife. She did not fly it to associate herself with that or any other group, and the use of an old historic flag by a new group does not necessarily drain that flag of all other meanings.”

I love that Mrs. Alito flew this flag over her summer home because I love what it represents — the existence of a higher power and the real hope that prayer to Him gives people in unjust or unfair situations.

I have a sense that Justice Alito’s most important decisions are in the future. Supernational and political forces are attempting to thwart God’s divine purposes for Justice and Mrs. Alito. Let’s appeal to heaven, to the Almighty God, on their behalf. Let’s pray for their protection and that they both complete the good works that God in Christ Jesus has prepared in advance for them to do.

Share your prayers for Justice Alito, his wife, and the Supreme Court below.

In my lifetime I have watched the demoncrats nominees to the supreme court show their total disregard of the rights we have in the constitution that are from God. As a matter fact they have gone as far as to distort the law to satan’s way. I have also noticed that the demoncratic nominees aren’t being harassed. Satan is at work here. God bless America be safe and God bless. 🙏😇🙏

I will not pray for the Supreme Court to be “empowered”. It already wields more power then ever intended by our constitution!

June 19, 2024

Heavenly Father, I praise You today for Godly people who stand for “Truth” and for Jesus, because Jesus, himself said “I am the… TRUTH…” Lord, we know that the Enemy is becoming aggressive to suppress the truth to advance his agenda. I am so grateful that we can appeal to Heaven (and have a flag to show it). Lord God, have mercy on Justice Alito and his wife. Cover them with Your Devine protection as they choose to serve You, the Lord God most high. I ask this in Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

June 19, 2024

My Precious Heavenly Father: I am so glad that you are on the Throne and are all knowing. I don’t ever have to worry that you don’t see or know what the devil is trying to do. I know you do and I trust Father that you have a plan for each of us that love and worship you. I know that you will be victorious and I pray your will over not only the Justices lives, but all of us in America. I ask father for you to strengthen and protect the Alito family. Help him and the other justices of the Supreme Court that know you and follow your word to be safe. Fie them courage to stand up and stay true to what they know you would have them do. Give them discernment and peace in their spirits when they contemplate decisions. I pray they get on their knees to you before every decision and follow your guiding. I pray that the Holy Spirit would convict and save the other Justices which are not in line with your will so that we can return America to One Nation under God. That our rulings and decisions would reflect that we Serve and Honor you our Heavenly Father. In the Mighty Name of Jesus I pray.

Thank YOU LORD, that there are more for us than there are against us. Thank You LORD for giving Justice Alito and his wife Martha Ann, YOUR fortitude, YOUR insight, YOUR strength and YOUR anointing that breaks every yoke! But especially, LORD, thank you for the Alito’s humility in their appeal to heaven for YOUR love of justice, YOUR grace for liberty, and the righteousness of YOUR purposes for the American Constitution. May we all lift up our voices and shout, “THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY REIGNS, FOREVER AND EVER, IN JESUS ‘ NAME WE PRAY!

I ask for supernatural strength and restoration for the judges and their wives, especially Justice Alito and his wife, Martha Ann. Bless them and their family as they stand for truth, righteousness, and a return to the constitution

Father, continue to guide, protect and empower Justice Alito and his wife. May all attempts to discourage, harm or intimidate backfire. May he stand strong and courageous! In Jesus’ name!

Heavenly Father, I appeal to you for divine interruption of demonic powers who attack our Supreme Court Justices and their wives and families. Send a flood of your glory to wipe out all evil plans against our nation and other nations fighting for freedom. You sent your son to set us free! Give us this day our freedom from oppression. Send a conviction so that they will repent of their sins and acknowledge you as the one true God. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen

Hello Justice Alito and his courageous wife, Martha Ann,
Thank you for your “rare” courage under fire and allowing God to guide you in your lives and decisions. These are crucial during these “post-christian” times. Our family prays a Rosary nightly
and we are keeping you and ALL members of the supreme court in our hearts, minds and prayers.
“May God Bless you, Protect you from all evil, and Bring you to everlasting life!”

I am grateful for our conservative Supreme Court justices. I’ve prayed for them a number of times in the past, particularly before the Dobbs decision. Following that Supreme Court ruling to remove the imagined support from the constitution for abortion would never have happened if it were not for these justices. So I continue to pray for them for strength, stamina, wisdom and protection. Having only recently become aware of the situation between justice, Alito and his wife, I now pray specifically for them and plan to write to them to let them know I’m doing so as an encouragement to them. Thank you for this article.

Father we pray Psalm 91 over Judge Alito & his wife & family. We thank you he & his wife are Esters in their times. We take our authority in Jesus Name binding the evil spirits assigned to harass them & we prohibit new ones from taking their place. We ask for hundreds of thousands of angels to come to them & their families & friends, Go before them Direct them & prosper their ways. We plead a hedge of protection of Jesus Blood around them that no man nor demon will dare cross. We pray for the peace that passeth understanding for Mrs Alito, the judge & all their family. Father we ask that you raise up an indignation in the other judges hearts & all elected officials & all who hear about that this is happening so they they will loudly speak up against these attacks & defend the Alitos. We pray for salvation for the ones being used by satan & we ask for justice in our courts to procecute all attacks directed to them. Raise up suprising allies through dreams & supernatural changes to their enemies hearts & minds as you have forever. We bind on earth these attacks & we loose on earth Godly principles & values & heavens safety. In the Name of Jesus we ask & thank you Amen

Father, I agree with the prayers of the other intercessors. I have prayed like you for months. But as I prayed through the posted prayers. My heart was convicted.
I pray for the protesters, each one as You see them,Lord. I ask that You would soften their hearts to hunger after truth and righteousness. Silence their voices and open their ears.
Many are angry without knowing why . Their anger has blinded them to the atrocities committed against Israel. they are lost and deceived but, created in Your image. We are commanded to pray for the lost.
What an amazing victory it will be when their voices are changed to praise our Mighty God and then pray blessings for Justice Alito and his wife.

June 18, 2024

THANK you IFA for explaining the story behind Mrs Alito. YES, we are united in prayer as we intercede for her and Justice Alito in our ‘“ Appeal To Heaven “ on their behalf, rebuking the evil one’s scheme to take them down!

And on a side note, how disgusting that President Biden is getting away with flying the ‘pride’ flag over the White House, between two American flags and The Alitos are attacked for flying the Godly “ Appeal to Heaven” flag!! Spiritual Warfare!!!! PRAY, PRAY, PRAY INTERCESSORS!

June 18, 2024

Lord, protect Justice Alito’s person, family, possessions, and reputation.

Thank you Dave for this wake up call. Truth is hard to come by these days so what you have revealed to us is new and wonderful. The Aliotos are a special couple, blessed by God for these times it seems. And this call to prayer is certainly timely.

June 18, 2024

Praying for Justice Alito and his wife Martha-Ann for their restored strength this summer. May they sense and see many assuming postures of humility and honoring the Lord to confirm the His goodness. As we return to simply accessing the scriptures for daily guidance, stepping forward to take on the challenge of changing forward, growing in the ways of Jesus.

June 18, 2024

Thank you father for Justice Alito and his wife. Thank you for blessing them with favor and influence in our country’s justice system. I pray that they would know you are mighty and good!

“In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Trust in God, that we, as with Justice Alito and Mrs. Alito, are made for a time as this. Be confident, strong, take courage and stand firm in the righteousness of Christ Jesus.

June 18, 2024

Lord, I life these to you who have suffered and sacrificed to serve our country, In the same way demonic forces have come against them to kill, steal an destroy, I ask that you send divine forces to protect Justice Alito and his family. I ask that you put a hedge of spiritual thorns around them to protect them and thwart the work of the enemy. In the name and power of Jesus Christ. Amen

June 18, 2024

Arise Lord and fight for the Alito’s in Jesus name. Lord you are the mighty man in battle. Defend them O Great Judge of the earth in the name of Jesus.

And after she was stalked in her own neighborhood- was that “neighbor”..held accountable for his cowardly and illegal behavior?
Of course not..not in communist AmeriKa. This man should have been arrested for harassing a private citizen and also chsrged for that crime..Especially the act of stalking her in her own neighborhood…Or in any environment. He should have recieved a sound thrashing on the spot. The fact that this ” man” got away with these criminal acts against Martha Alito only fans the flames for further outrageous behaviors from similarly unhinged lunatics, not to mention furthering the already too familiar lack of respect for a man and woman’s personsl property..their home. The fact that Godly patriots historically stand on the front lines in defense of freedom, in no way allows for these outrages against personsal liberty and the sanctity of a private citizens home..much less that of a cherished public srtvant of righteousness..And Justice Alito’s WIFE..at. at that. While the obvious message of valor in a patriot enduring scorn for the cause of freedom-, is obviously higjlighted here…lets not too quickly forget Mark & Patricia McCloskey’s. stand against woke ” protestors”..in St Louis, Missouri, a short two years ago. Those expressing conservative and Christian values on kindred platforms voiced support for this valorius couple-, and rushed to their defense in print- of their constitutional rights to keep and bear arms in protecting themselves and their home.. against not only unruly.. but Soros funded anti-American-, and unemployed thugs..examples of which.. have been stoking the drum beat of Anarchy in our country for the last 4 years-, and should be soundly pounded down and incarcerated for their crimes against personal liberty, citizens, and our cherished foundations of freedom. Im surprised not more was said in this article about the delicate and cherished institution of a man protecting his wife..and family..in the face of what was obviously a thug mentality conspirator- allowed-to – wreak – havoc, not only in a family neighborhood, but in ANY neighborhood in our once cherished liberty founded republic. Apparently that cherished foundation has gone by the wayside. Where was law enforcement?..and painfully and obviously not- stated observation on the godless reign of terror on the homes and neighborhoods of America. Like Steve Banmon just recently stated while talking with Tucker..” If they can do this to me…they can do it to anyone”. To whoever is reading this..be certain to bring your neighborhood together under lock and key..fortify your community and those your love and cherish..You are next. These outrages are the clarion call of our times..and are illustrated in our history..the british are not “coming”.. They. Are. Here.
And what is unmistakably glaring..so are the globalists..and the ugly truth that both groups are one- in- the-.same.
British, and globslists. And, they always have been. This crime against the Alitos needs to be reconciled with nothing less than the furor of vigilante restitution..which shoukd have arisen at the time in Martha’s defense. Who know really how close the situation was to much worse actions..on the part of someone deranged and ungodly enough, and unmanly enough..to stalk a woman..heaven forbid..in her own neighborhood. It seems that “man”..should be from now on looking over his own shoulder.

I pray charges are brought against this thug that assaulted Martha Alito.
And I pray for the healing and peace of The Lord for her as well.
In Jesus Name, Amen

Lord Jesus, I pray that you will put a hedge of protection around Justice Alito and his family. I also pray for the SCOTUS. I pray that each and every member of the Supreme Court, and their staff, would seek Your guidance and direction in all that they say and do. Theirs is a position of vital importance in our nation. Please use them to bring about your purposes for this nation. Thank you, Jesus.

June 18, 2024

Thank You Lord for Justice Alito and his dear wife!! They have been given the right to stand for Truth and Righteousness and Justice for this Nation under God !! Bless them and protect them from the Enemies schemes against them in the strong Name of Jesus,our Lord and King and Savior!!!

June 18, 2024

Our prayer to You Lord God Almighty is for an increase of Your divine guidance, protection, wisdom & presence over justice Alito & his wife & all family members. Bless them tenfold going forward, increase their discernment & surround them with an army of warring angels.
May the presence of God that will surround them extend into justice Alito’s decisions and be sensed by all the other justices on the Supreme Court. Give them a holy fear of You in their decisions & let no present administration, politicians or their threats deter the court from their role to uphold the existing laws & Constitution of our land. Guide them in using their positions to correct injustices, corruption or wrongs in our present legal climate.
And may Your holy name receive the glory. Amen.

Yes, we most certainly do appeal to heaven, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, for our nation and for our leaders. We ask you our merciful and gracious God, for your omnipotent hand to protect and defend our Supreme Court Justices and their families and all who are standing up against the forces of evil in our nation.
Give great strength and courage to these leaders who seek to stand for truth and righteousness in a dark world. Help them to remember that they will surely stand before you as we all must, and we want to be on the right side of history, standing up for the truth and true justice. And we thank you our Heavenly Father, that you hear our prayers and answer them accordingly to your perfect will, in Jesus mighty name!
