(Colorado Springs, CO)—[Charismanews.com] Dr. James Dobson and his
wife, Shirley, called for urgent prayer over the Kavanaugh family in an email sent to hundreds of thousands of subscribers.
"Shirley and I have been praying urgently for weeks about the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, and for his wife
Ashley and their precious daughters," Dobson said in the email.
Dobson is the head of Family Talk Radio.
I'm sure millions of other Christians are doing the same. We're
asking the Lord during the day and into the night to defeat the schemes of those who clearly want to destroy this great nation. I'm not accusing Dr. Ford of anything. She might remember the ghosts of her past, though the facts appear to contradict her description
of them. But something else is going on here. At its core, this isn't just another political conflict. Swirling around us is a life and death struggle for the soul of America. It is a profound spiritual battle that touches something deep within me. We are
left with an agonized prayer: "God, please help us."
The Dobson's say Ashley Kavanaugh specifically asked for Believers around the country to pray Psalm 40 over her and her family and the
The passage reads:
I waited patiently for the Lord,
and He turned to me, and heard my cry.
He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
the miry clay,
and set my feet on a rock,
and established my steps.
He has put a new song in my mouth,
even praise to our God;
many will see it, and fear,
trust in the Lord.
Blessed is the man
who places trust in the Lord,
but does not turn toward the proud,
nor those falling away to falsehood.
O Lord my God,
have done many wonderful works,
and Your thoughts toward us
cannot be compared;
if I would declare and speak of them,
they are more than can be numbered.
Sacrifice and offering
You did not desire;
You have opened up my ears to listen.
Burnt offering and sin offering
You have not required.
Then I said, "Behold, I have come;
in the scroll of the book it
is written of me,
I delight to do Your will, O my God;
Your law is within my inward parts."
I have proclaimed righteousness in the great congregation;
I have not held back my lips,
Lord, You know.
I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart;
I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation;
I have not concealed Your loving kindness and Your truth
from the great
Do not withhold Your compassion from me, O Lord;
may Your loving kindness and Your truth always guard me.
For innumerable evils have surrounded me;
my iniquities have overtaken me,
so that I am not able to look up;
they are more than the hairs of my head
so that my heart fails me.
Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me;
O Lord, make haste to help me.
seeking to snatch away my life
be ashamed and confounded together;
may those who desire my harm
be driven backward and dishonored.
May those who say to me "Aha, aha!"
on account of their shame.
May all those who seek You
rejoice and be glad in You;
may those who love Your salvation say continually,
"The Lord is magnified."
But I am poor and
yet the Lord thinks about me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
do not delay, O my God.
