Prayer Warriors Team Up to Storm Capitol Hill

by | Dec 14, 2010 | Charisma Archive

capitolIf one can put
1,000 to flight, two can put 10,000 to flight.

That’s the
reasoning behind the new alliance between the Congressional Prayer Team
of Washington D.C. and the Telephonic Prayer Team. These prayer
warriors are joining forces to hold the 112th Senate accountable to
righteousness.

The groups sent
an open letter to U.S. senators to remind them that prayer warriors are
releasing daily prayers—praying for each senator by their full names. The
groups will use the Bible as the standard to measure righteous lawmaking.

In other
district-related prayer movements, the Congressional Prayer
Caucus is under attack from the Americans United for
Separation of Church and State. Led by U.S. Rep. Randy
Forbes (R-Va.), the Prayer Caucus criticized President Barack Obama for
telling an audience in Indonesia last month that the phrase “E
Pluribus Unum
” is a good summary of the American experience. The Prayer
Caucus insists the national motto is “In God We Trust.”

“For the
president of the United States to incorrectly state something as foundational
as our national motto in another country is unacceptable. The president is the
primary representative of our nation to the world, and whether mistake or
intention, his actions cast aside an integral part of American society,” Forbes
says. “President Reagan once warned that ‘If we ever forget that we’re one
nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.’”

The Prayer
Caucus also complained about Obama omitting the word “Creator” when quoting
passages from the Declaration of Independence. The complaints drew the ire of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Rev.
Barry W. Lynn, executive director of the group, said the members of the Prayer
Caucus need to “get a life.”

“The Prayer Caucus should just admit that it is
looking for any opportunity to bash the president. It’s not very Christian of
them, but I expect nothing less from a body that takes its marching orders from
the religious right,” Lynn says. “This is one of the silliest manufactured
controversies I’ve ever seen, and I would advise the president to deal with it
by tossing the caucus’ letter into the nearest wastebasket.”
