I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would restore law and order in our nation. Bring back a justice system that no one can call biased, Lord!
Reading Time: 3 minutes

From American Thinker. The Constitution is our pact of civilized behavior.  From it we’ve derived a system of institutionalized justice, which we call our criminal justice system.  It’s intended to include checks and balances to protect defendants from biases and ensure fair adjudication of their charges.  Those safeguards include the following:

  • a presumption of innocence
  • a right to due process
  • a right to legal defense
  • a right to a trial by one’s peers
  • a right to trial before an impartial judge

Given our presumption of innocence, absolute justice can’t be guaranteed because conviction depends on the presence of evidence.  Instead, we have agreed to accept equal treatment under the law.  We agree to abide by the law in exchange for a system that treats us equally and is administered by officials who swear an oath to defend our constitutional protections.

Do you want state prayer alerts?


Then Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, and Merrick Garland came along as the country’s top law enforcement officials and flushed it all.  Under them, the application of justice has become decidedly unequal. …

The presumption of innocence seems like a quaint idea from the past.  Was New York attorney general Letitia James presuming innocence when she made a campaign promise to initiate a criminal investigation of Donald Trump before she even entered office or saw any evidence of wrongdoing? …

Was due process followed when the FBI destroyed evidence of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified documents — at Clinton’s request?  Did the FBI have a legal predicate when it launched an investigation of an incoming president — based on fabricated evidence provided by his political opponent?  How about when they raided the homes of reporters — with armed agents — to recover Ashley Biden’s diary?  Had a crime even been committed?

Is our right to competent legal representation being undermined when attorneys face disbarment for taking legal actions challenging election practices? …

Was a conservative from Montana tried by a jury of his peers — when that jury comprised mostly Democrats from Washington, D.C.? …

Was General Michael Flynn given an impartial judge for his trial?  Was Judge Emmet Sullivan being impartial when he refused to let the DoJ drop charges, and instead appointed his own counsel to argue the case before him? …

When the core principles of our criminal justice system are no longer honored, the citizens of a self-governed country will judge the pact of civilized behavior to be breached. …

What comes next?  Will citizens embrace a system in which guilt or innocence is a function of their beliefs instead of their actions?  Or will Americans avoid the system entirely? …

We are not a country of sheep.  We are descendants of fiercely independent and self-reliant pioneers.  Many Americans still retain those attributes. … Our old west may be a better predictor of where justice in America is headed. …

In the old west, criminals had easy prey — and they capitalized on it.  Rape, robbery, and murder were common.  But that chaos was unacceptable to the settlers. … The farmers, ranchers, and miners formed law enforcement committees — many of which were little more than vigilante mobs. …

But the committees operated without the infrastructure of institutional criminal justice. … The committees functioned as the police, prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner — all in one untrained body with no uniform standards. …

I’m not advocating vigilante justice.  I’m predicting that it’s a natural consequence of human nature if our current leadership destroys the last vestiges of the “equal justice under the law” that we were promised.  When the system no longer protects citizens, they will find ways to protect themselves. …

I believe the Justice system has an undercurrent of money laundering; in addition being controlled, bribed by Dark Money. There has been so much election fraud it cannot be denied; although the Judicial system continues to deny fraud.
There is so much crime: IE, riots during 2020-2021 and Nothing is done.
I wrote a letter to 70 pastors and leaders May, 2022; sharing a Rhema word I received from the Holy Spirit on prayer and fasting. Exhorting the leaders to exhort their people to FAST and that would be what will move the hand of God. ONE ministry responded stating we will bring to leadership. Very disappointing. Please somehow, someway if the Holy Spirit moves IFA to exhort the people to ADD fasting in their prayer life; that would be a blessing and power for Gods hand to move. thank you.

Heavenly Father, You are the Creator who establishes us. You know the way in which we are to go. You moved on the hearts and minds of 40 men to pen Your words found in the Bible (the word of truth). You are the Great I Am who moved in the hearts and minds of the men who penned the Declaration of Independence. Father, You are still the God of our foundation and establish the work of our hands Psalms 90:17. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish thou the work of our hands upon us, yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. You remind us in Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the LORD is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate. Father, we ask that under Your authority You would once again align this nation. Remove from positions of authority those who refuse to heed Your word and follow Your way. Establish Your kingdom here on earth. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

Job 9:19 If it is a matter of strength, look, He is the Mighty One! If it is a matter of justice, who can summon Him?
Isaiah 5:16 But the Lord of Hosts is exalted by His justice and the holy God is distinguished by righteousness.
Psalm 82, “A Plea for Righteous Judgement” https://biblehub.com/hcsb/psalms/82.htm

Job 9:19 If it is a matter of strength, look, He is the Mighty One! If it is a matter of justice, who can summon Him?
Isaiah 5:16 But the Lord of Hosts is exalted by His justice and the holy God is distinguished by righteousness.

Dear Heavenly Father, only You can restore law and order in our nation. Only You can bring back a true system of justice. You are Elohei Mishpat, the God of Justice, who rules in the Court of Heaven. You are the Mighty One who CANNOT be summoned because the courts of Heaven and earth belong to You. I pray You will raise up men and women who value the rule of law and I pray those who don’t are removed. I ask that these imposters, who have made a mockery of justice, have no place to hide. I praise You Father, Son and Holy Spirit and wait for You to be “what is next in the American justice system. Amen

Father, I look to you to restore justice, true justice, in our country. May those who decide justice based on their own opinions be ousted. May those who decide justice on the model of innocence decided until a crime is proven. Thank you that you are changing things, and we praise your name for what you are doing.
