I Prayed have prayed
Lord God, we pray for all of our judges and justices to seek You for wisdom and to offer rulings that reflect Your wisdom.

With a 50-50 Senate and an impending fall election, [President Biden] will have to choose carefully to ensure that his selection can be confirmed. Nothing in Biden’s presidency so far suggests that he will bother to interpret correctly what pivotal members of his Senate caucus are thinking before he makes his choice.

Biden has unwisely limited his options by preemptively declaring during the 2020 campaign that his first Supreme Court nominee would be a black woman. In a stroke, he disqualified dozens of liberal and progressive jurists for no reason other than their race and gender. This is not a great start in selecting someone sworn to provide equal justice under law.

Unlike Donald Trump, Biden did not run on a named list of potential candidates, so he will then have to sell his nominee to the public. That nominee is almost certain to be a progressive who treats the written Constitution with contempt. Even if Democrats remain united enough to provide the votes to confirm such a nominee, Republicans should extract a political cost in the midterm Senate races for doing so. The last three cycles of Senate elections have shown that fidelity to the Constitution is a winning political issue for Senate Republicans. . . .

But on the Court, Breyer became a single-minded crusader to use every available argument to hobble capital punishment, no matter how disconnected those arguments were from the text and history of the Constitution. He was a reliable and invariable vote for abortion, same-sex marriage, and other liberal and progressive social causes. In recent years, he became progressively more shrill on matters relating to the Covid pandemic.

So, let us have another national argument about whether the Supreme Court should follow the written Constitution or not. There is no reason to shy away from the fight.

Please share your prayers about Justice Breyer’s retirement!

I pray that the plans of the enemy would be thwarted in the Supreme Court pick. Many are the plans in a mans heart, but only those of the Lord will prevail in Jesus Mighty Name. I pray that our congress would only stand for a righteous justice that follows the Constitution and loves America in Jesus Name!

Lord guide this tumultuous process. Let those who believe in Your word, our Constitution and that the existing rule of law is to be upheld instead of dissected by personal ideology….give those individuals Your strength, wisdom, knowledge, foresight and fortitude to battle for upholding equality as it has been established by Your word and the Constitution of our nation. Open blind and biased eyes / minds to endorse someone to the court NOT based on gender or color but by how they apply the law equally to every individual regardless of their background. We desire for that individual to deeply honor and have a holy fear and reverence for You Lord. Help our elected officials work in a bipartisan manner for the benefit of the entire nation. Amen.

Thank you, Almighty God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, that You are beginning to weed out the WICKED (those who turn up their noses to Your precepts/Word/Law, beginning with Justice Breyer. We cry out to You, O God, that You will continue to clean up the Legislative and Judicial body, even the Executive Body. We pray for the salvation of Justice Breyer whom You loved so much that You gave Your only begotten Son, as an atonement for him. We also pray for all others in public office who are so blinded by the god of this age that they trample upon Truth, Righteousness and Justice. Take the blinders off their eyes, Father, and let the light of the knowledge of Your glory in the face of Christ shine upon them. If they remain stiff-necked, Father, and reject Your offer of forgiveness and reconciliation, we pray You would take them OUT of their position of authority and power and replace them with YOUR righteous people who bow the knee to You and Your Son Jesus. In His Name, we pray. Amen!

She-ma Yisrael, (shema nations,) Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai Echad
Hear O’ Israel, (Hear O’ nations), the Lord is our God, the Lord is One
(personalized)

I rememberd this as I prayed earlier. God knows EVERY plan and intention, nothing is hidden. I lifted up to Him my faith and trust in He alone, for safety and propensity. I asked that He trample the plans of the enemy for His Glory and our good, I asked that the Fear of the Lord fall upon His enemies I asked that He would laugh at their futility. Thank You Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Thank you Lord for the information concerning Justice Breyer’s retirement and how he voted on critical issues. Perhaps you have visited him in dreams or visions and have warned him about these pernicious judgments and opinions.
As believers, we can rejoice in all things at all times.
I also give you praise for whatever President Biden has verbally locked himself into.
No one can out strategize the Lord: in I Kings 22:19-23, the king of Israel summoned 400 prophets together to inquire if he should go to battle against Ramoth-Gilead..
The prophet Micaiah was also summoned and he rehearsed a vision which the Lord had given him, where he saw the Lord sitting on His throne in heaven with all the host of heaven beside him. The Lord said, “ who will entice Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-Gilead?’…then “a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord, saying, I will entice him.’ And the Lord said to him, ‘ By what means? ‘ And he said, ‘ I will go forth, and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets’. And He said, ‘ You are to entice him, and you shall succeed; go forth and do so.’ (Verses 5-12).
Now therefore behold, the Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets; the Lord has spoken evil concerning you.”
My prayers will be for God’s will to be done in this critical decision. “ Man plans his way, but God orders his steps.” Lord, May you order this whole affair according to Your plans.

How ironic that by declaring he will only pick a black woman for this vacant seat, he is practicing blatant racism and sexism, the very things our country has fought against since the Civil War and the very things the Constitution of our country protects against in declaring all are equal in God’s sight and under the law. Lord, we pray Your hand in this process, that the integrity and honor of the Court would be preserved and even strengthened and our Constitution, the foundation of our country, would be upheld and protected. We need just Judges for such a time as this. http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com

Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is a waterway in the hand of the LORD; He directs it where He pleases.
Ecclesiastes 3:4 I know that everything God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God does it so that they should fear Him.

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray Your direction ahead of this nomination, ahead of the confirmation hearings, and ahead of the ultimate selection of the next SCOTUS. I humbly pray it pleases You to raise up the perfect candidate for Your Glory and the good of America. May the fear of the Lord fall upon all involved. I ask this and so much more in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Father God, the SCOTUS was by design to be an upholder of truth, justice and the United States Constitution. I humbly ask that the person chosen & confirmed to replace Justice Breyer have not only an understanding of this but also a deep conviction to uphold it in their every decision going forward.
I pray for President Biden…that his choice of person for this opening in the court would be Your divine choice. That You would rule and reign in this decision and that whether in confusion or understanding President Biden would name Your choice for this seat on the court.
I also pray for the upcoming confirmation hearings. Cause brave and courageous Senators on both sides of the aisle to ask penetrating questions that expose the true person. Let it be a true investigation of character. Lord Jesus, You are Lord of Lord and King of Kings…this seat in the SCOTUS belongs to You. You alone exalt men/women into power.
So it is by the blood of Lamb and in the Name of Jesus, I appeal to heaven for an appointment of the judge America needs in this time of history, and any and all plans otherwise. Be thwarted. Amen and Amen!

    I agree, so let us pray Genesis 50:20, they intended this for harm, but “God intended it for good to accomplish what is now (maybe will be?) being done, the saving of many lives.” praying that God will use everything for His purposes, which are always good. http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com

Father, thank you for being a just God, Holy, and Omnipresent. It is you who knows the hearts of men. I ask that you would cause a divine intervention, divine connection, and divine communication for all peoples involved in the appointing of a new justice to judge righteously in our land to uphold our constitution based upon your Word in Jesus name. Thank you Lord!

I pray a hedge of protection with our government and Supreme Court. No matter if the person is black, Hispanic, male, female and etc. That our Lord will prevail and bring our country back to the way we should be living, the way it was meant to be. For our justice to do and protect our God and the Constitution. To get rid of the evil that is in the Supreme Court and the government. To get judges in there that listens to the country and it’s people and not their own personal agenda. God is aware and I know he has a plan. I will keep praying 🙏

Lord, We pray for your intervention as a new justice is selected. Foil the plans of the enemy and anoint and select a justice that respects the Constution and your sovereign outlook in his or her decisions. Make that person courageous and non political. If that person is a black woman, let her personify all that is good, humble and just. Thank you for your goodness and protection, LORD.

Is not God the righteous judge of all the earth. Some of the justices have accused God of playing politics. Where do they get their decisions? They are earthly ,bias, and demonic. Thank you for your light and truth Lord.

Media comments today gives some idea of how the swamp is feeling:
J,ustice Beyer has been harrassed at home and office for weeks to speed his early retirement since that would enable 2) a black female, liberal voice in the court. Thus 3) kamala harris is one the short list so that Mit Romney could be brought on board as V.P. Further, 4) a supporter explained theey didn’t want somdeone focused on law, but someone who would see the effects of their decisions on people?
Since fovvy bottom think8ng is hard to comprehend, I sttill pray for a hedge of protection arount the Justice so any harrassment will be contained.
We stand before the Father asking that HE reveal Himself in this entire election process. That His will be done on earth as in heaven. C9ntinue showing your Prayer Warriors that Prayer is a twoedged sword that never returns void but accomplishes the Father’s will.May God receive All the Glory..
