Weekly Watch Focus: Religious Liberty in Our Military

FRIDAY, March 28, 2014, There has been a growing hostility to the Christian faith within the U.S. armed forces in the last decade. Through the history of our nation, faith in God has sustained our soldiers on battlefields across the globe. Chaplains have strengthened and encouraged our troops far from home. Now there is a move to restrict or even eliminate chaplains from the armed forces. The pressure to impose a secular, anti-religious culture in our nation’s military services has increased in this present administration.
Pray for all branches of our military. May our sons and daughters serving in the military have freedom to believe and exercise their faith in Jesus Christ. Bind back secular, anti-Christ forces loose in our own military and government. Focus extra prayer on our Air Force, which has had intense pressure this last year from anti-Christian, atheistic activists. Pray Psalm 91 blessing on all our men and women in uniform.

Psalm 91

Heb. 13:6, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Ps. 27:2-5, “When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell.Though an army may encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war may rise against me, in this I will be confident. One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.”

Josh 5:13-14, “And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, ‘Are You for us or for our adversaries?’ He said, ‘No, but as Commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.’”


Secondary Focus: Ebola Virus

There is an aggressive outbreak of the very deadly Ebola virus in the West-African nation of Guinea, with indications that it has spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone. This incurable, hemorrhagic fever is perhaps among the most deadly diseases known. Pray for God’s deliverance, and for this plague to cease. Pray for the very brave health workers who know that one small mistake can lead to their own deaths.

Num. 21:8, “Then the Lord said to Moses, ’Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.’”

Exod. 15:26, “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”

Matt. 4:23, “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.”

2 Sam. 24:25, “And David built there an altar to the Lord, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the Lord heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.”
