The Supreme Court: Harvest of Prayer

By Missey Butler
CBN Staff Writer -- An interesting story is told to us in the book of Luke about gratitude. On his way to Jerusalem, as Jesus was going into a small village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, “ Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed.

One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back to Jesus, shouting, “Praise God, I’m healed!” He fell down on the ground at Jesus feet, thanking him for what he had done. Then Jesus asked, “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine? Does only this foreigner return to give glory to God?” (Luke 17: 15-18).

This past August a call went out across our nation for prayer and intercession on behalf of the establishment of righteousness to once again be upheld in the Highest court in our land. As I recently sat and watched Judge John Roberts being sworn in as our newest Chief Justice of the United States I couldn’t help but think about the faithfulness of God and how importance it was for us to make sure we run back and thank Him!

Our God has been faithful to appoint the person He would have to preside on the bench as Chief Justice over the Supreme Court. We give him all the glory and the praise for His sovereign move!

We now begin to regroup our prayer efforts and turn our attention once again to the newest round of nominations and we trust that God will again set in place “His choice” within the High Court.

The scriptures bear out that there is power in agreement. Jesus said in Matthew 18:19,20,

I also tell you this: If two of you agree down here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. For where two or three gather together because they are mine, I am there among them. (NLV The Book)

We can take comfort in the fact that as we lift up our prayer request in His name, He is there promising a response from His Father.

All Glory to the Father!
