Suggested Scriptural references ...
You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous. Justice, and only justice, you shall follow, that you may live and inherit the land that the L-rd your G-d is giving you. Deuteronomy 16:19-20
You shall not be partial in judgment. You shall hear the small and the great alike. You shall not be intimidated by anyone, for the judgment is G-d’s. Deuteronomy 1:17
For G-d shows no partiality. Romans 2:11
You must not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you are called to testify in a dispute, do not be swayed by the crowd to twist justice. Exodus 23: 2
Suggested prayers ...
We ask for leaders, a judicial system and judges who adhere to the original intent of our founding documents and their many connections to Biblical principles.
We pray for a true understanding of justice according to Your Word
We pray for Your protection from attempts to redefine justice for political gain.
We ask You to convict, transform and protect those who are out of Your will. We ask You to encourage, strengthen and protect those who honor and follow You.
We ask You for judges who will follow constitutional principles rather than ruling according to pre-chosen outcomes or relying on international law.
We pray that courts will recognize parents’ fundamental rights to the care, custody and control of their children.
We ask for Your guidance for accurate rulings over first amendment issues, and an awareness in our country that the words, “separation of church and state” are found nowhere in any one of our founding documents. We ask for a reversal of rulings which have inaccurately established “separation” as a Constitutional principle.
I agree and offer these prayers in the name of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach. Amain.
