I Prayed have prayed
Lord, let our nation’s leaders be granted wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.

The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld voting laws in Arizona in a decision that could make it harder to challenge other voting measures put in place by Republican lawmakers following last year’s elections.

The court, by a 6-3 vote, reversed a lower-court ruling in deciding that Arizona’s limits on who can return early ballots for another person and refusal to count ballots cast in the wrong precinct are not racially discriminatory.

The federal appeals court in San Francisco had held that the measures disproportionately affected Black, Hispanic and Native American voters in violation of the landmark Voting Rights Act.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote for a conservative majority that the state’s interest in the integrity of elections justified the measures. In dissent, Justice Elena Kagan wrote:

“What is tragic here is that the Court has (yet again) rewritten — in order to weaken — a statute that stands as a monument to America’s greatness, and protects against its basest impulses. What is tragic is that the Court has damaged a statute designed to bring about ‘the end of discrimination in voting.’ I respectfully dissent,” Kagan wrote, joined by the other two liberal justices.

Heavenly Father I thank you for this ruling allowing for protection of our election process against those who would try to manipulate it for their own political gain. I know Satan is at work trying to tear our country apart. Hear the prayers of the faithful Lord and continue to bring forth leaders who are willing to stand for truth against the onslaught of lies and deceit from those who seek to lead us away from you.

God is a spirit. His only mouth, feet, arms and hands are ours. God works through people.

We need to pray that He will raise up righteous men and women who know the truth, love truth and care enough to come forward and bring it to the light. Pray He will set angels to watch over and protect them and their families from threats, death and/or destruction. That God will give them wisdom and courage, go before them, and make the crooked places straight: break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron. (Isaiah 45:1-3) That He will show them anointed, inspired, previously unknown, maybe even not-thought-of work-arounds for every impediment, obstacle, obstruction erected against the knowledge of the truth. That He will open the eyes and hearts of the American people to see truth (Isaiah 35:5); remove the cloud of deceptions, distractions and darkness imprisoning the minds and hearts of the American people (Isaiah 42:7); rescue us from the grip of our own national and personal sin. And, if you are one of the people involved in this issue who knows the truth, has the resources and cares enough to bring truth to the light, we pray that you will be strong in the Lord and go forward in the strength of His power. He will give you the courage and fortitude you need to do the right thing.

God is not in control of everything that happens on this earth. If He were, earth would be like heaven and there would be no sin, no evil. Satan owns world governments (Matthew 4:1-11 – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%204&version=AMP) and plays a major role in world events. God does, however, have a firm grip on His will in the earth, the role of His people and the ultimate outcome of the timeline of human history (as revealed throughout scripture and the book of Revelation.) Truth matters to God. He hates evil. Timing is everything.

The election of 2020 is over. But the spirit behind it is not. Please continue to stand in His word and pray. Take what you need for intercession from the following scriptures in the Amplified, Message and Passion Translations: Psalm 94:20-23, Psalms 129:4, Psalms 141:6,10, Psalms 146:9, Isaiah 45:1-3, Isaiah 35:5, Isaiah 42:7. Amen.

Creator Father God you are a just God. I love you Lord. I plead that you would intervene in this ruling. I pray for a favorable outcome. I thank you that I get to live in the United States. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

    Hello Rosalie. I had to read the article a couple of times for understanding. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this sounds like a victory! Thank you Jesus! The title of this article states “Ruling Supports Election Integrity in AZ.” And Justice Kagan and the other liberals dissented and called this decision “tragic,” because they obviously bought in to the ridiculous reports that the GOP supports racial discrimination in voting! God has, indeed, been intervening. 🙂
    Thank you, Lord God, for hearing our prayers and moving the justices to deliver a sound ruling in this matter and bring victory over the lower courts decision. I pray that you would work in the hearts of the dissenting justices to see what we see. Thank you for helping bring this matter to a logical conclusion.

      Hello Carol G} Where do you live? I was born and raised in Detroit and still live 50 miles north of Detroit. Ballot harvesting is common in the Detroit area and has been for years.Just because we seem to get a favorable ruling does not give you a favorable outcome. Just because this is great for Arizona and I thank God for that. It is not viewed so favorable for Michigan most importantly Detroit our biggest city. I am pleading with God to intervene in the ruling for a favorable outcome. Now it is in the court of public opinion. It is too bad it made it to the Supreme Court and did not get ruled correctly and stayed in Arizona. Now it is brought to national attention. In the court hearing Republicans said ballot harvesting hurt them. We just told them what works to beat us.
