Prayer is Our Only Route to Victory

The U.S. Supreme Court is right now holding in its hands the issue can make or break America. Within a few weeks, the Court will hand down its decision on the definition of Marriage, and it is expected to be binding on all our 50 states. The Court has before it two cases. In one case, the homosexuals are asking the Court to declare unconstitutional the Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA. It was passed by overwhelming majorities of Congress in 1996 and signed by President Bill Clinton. It simply declares that in all references in federal law to marriage (of which there are more than 1,000), marriage means the union of a man and a woman. The other case came from California. California voters, in a statewide referendum, passed Proposition 8 defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman. the homosexuals got two federal courts to declare that referendum vote unconstitutional, and Prop 8 sponsors have appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the vote of the people.

The Supreme Court will hand down its decision in June, and I cannot predict what the Court will do. The Court could uphold marriage as God defined it and as we have respected it since before the Pilgrims landed on the Atlantic coast centuries ago. Or the Court could redefine marriage, which would dramatically change hundreds of U.S. laws and the whole character of our society. There is now nothing you and I can do to affect the decision except to pray that God will speak to the Justices and tell them to do the right thing. The only thing you and I can do is to pray that five of the nine Justices will listen to hear and heed the Lord's message. So I'm asking you to pray every day for this cause because there's nothing else we can do. Please listen tomorrow; I have more to tell you about this important cause.
