The Family Research Council’s 21-day fast against same-sex marriage is in its 15th day and the last few daily prayers have focused on individual members of the Supreme Court. Today the FRC asks its followers to pray that Justice Antonin Scalia exerts his influence over the others and that those three heathen Jews “bow their knee before Jesus.” Or else.
God, thank you for Justice Scalia, who has been shaped by his faith and who believes that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were intended to protect people of all faiths from an overreaching federal government. (Hebrews 11:6) Thank the Lord for helping this Justice to stand strong for the rule of law and the Constitution and against the liberal winds of cultural change. (1 Cor 3:10-13; 1 Tim 1:8-10) Guide him in hearing and analyzing the arguments on Tuesday, 28th. Help him ask precisely the right questions that will elicit answers proving our case. May Scalia influence every Justice when they confer after arguments. May the Spirit of God impact his thinking and all of his colleagues and may Scalia’s strength be a support to others to stand on principle. (Eph 6:19-20; Jas 1:8) May Justice Scalia, the father of nine and grandfather of 28, be a champion for children. May God awaken every Justice to the true cost to children and generations unborn. (Gen 18:19; Matthew 18:6) May every Justice bow their knee before Jesus, the Supreme Judge of the World, to whom they will give account. (Acts 17:31)
Two days ago the FRC prayed for God to “move supernaturally upon Justice Stephen Breyer” and the two others who “share his philosophy.”
