I received this prayer request via an email from my former Precept Bible study leader this morning, forwarded from Kay with this post's title in the subject line:

Shirley Dobson will be giving a deposition tomorrow
(TUESDAY, 11-10-09)
from 8:30-4:30 PM.  She is being sued by a group
“Freedom From Religion” because she asked the President and other
political leaders to pray for our nation… as leader of National Day of
Prayer.  I prayed with her tonight, but told her would have the staff
and others
praying for her tomorrow… this is so important.  I am
praying they will be stunned by the Spirit of
God… convicted… convinced they will lose… and that if any of
them are His lost sheep, that they will get convicted and saved because the
Spirit of God will be so strong in that room.  She is a valiant

Sued for asking our President and leaders to pray?  Are you kidding me??!  

Then, a g a i n …Shirley should be doing a little joy-filled happy dance; this is exactly what scripture tells us will happen for the true believer ~

"In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted…" {2 Timothy 3:12}

"Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial
when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were
happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings,
that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If
you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the
Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you…. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name."
{1 Peter 4:12-14, 16}

Lord, have mercy.
