World Wrap- Greece and Euro
How do you pray for the world’s financial crisis, for our economic crunch, recession and depression that has gripped our country, our states and our cities right down to the foundations of our communities? It is difficult to sort through the illusions that the politicos and media cut and paste every morning so in order for a journalist to find a breakthrough prayer, he or she has to look to absolute truth.
Prayer Post: Today is July 1, 2011, a Friday. The headlines have been quiet this morning aside from a rehashing and a disconnect of our current fling with denial, escapism, anger and depression. It is a theme that you will find at the Dead Sea. We are covered in Brine and Brine Flies but we won’t admit it. From a discredited maid at a NY Hotel that jeopardizes a French diplomat and economist Lord, there is more irony here than in a box of Total Cereal. In the midst of our financial correction the politicians are spending big bucks in luxury hotels and behaving badly. In NY to problem solve but the mission takes them into the “dark side” and then there’s denial. while the Evil One invented “Denial,” you created Forgiveness, a new lease and a new FRAME for our lives. Lord help us to get past denial for that is the first word when death culture comes knocking in the guise of room service. (Denial verses Forgiveness)

TOP NEWSStrauss-Kahn Case Seen as in JeopardyBy JIM DWYER, WILLIAM K. RASHBAUM and JOHN ELIGON
The case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn is on the verge of collapse as investigators have uncovered major holes in the credibility of the housekeeper who charged that he attacked her in a Manhattan hotel in May.
Pray the Word Daily (Biblical) Prayer for Breakthrough (2 Kings 18)
“This is what the great king of Assyria says: What are you trusting in that makes you so confident? 20 Do you think that mere words can substitute for military skill and strength? Who are you counting on, that you have rebelled against me? 21 On Egypt? If you lean on Egypt, it will be like a reed that splinters beneath your weight and pierces your hand. Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, is completely unreliable!
22 “But perhaps you will say to me, ‘We are trusting in the Lord our God!’ But isn’t he the one who was insulted by Hezekiah? Didn’t Hezekiah tear down his shrines and altars and make everyone in Judah and Jerusalem worship only at the altar here in Jerusalem?
23 “I’ll tell you what! Strike a bargain with my master, the king of Assyria. I will give you 2,000 horses if you can find that many men to ride on them! 24 With your tiny army, how can you think of challenging even the weakest contingent of my master’s troops, even with the help of Egypt’s chariots and charioteers? 25 What’s more, do you think we have invaded your land without the Lord’s direction? The Lord himself told us, ‘Attack this land and destroy it!’”
Another Area Girds for Revolt as Sudan Approaches a SplitBy JEFFREY GETTLEMAN
Despite an agreement signed only days ago to bring peace to central Sudan, the country seems to be sliding inexorably toward war.
Prayer Post: Violence, murder and invasion has been a way of life in these countries, Lord. What isn’t said is based on religion and worldview. I pray that your will be done in Sudan and that the relationship that you provide is not religious in any way. War is a form of “escapism” while the enemy invented escape hatches that lead to death, God instituted “relational” thinking and living to combat our escape route. Relationships and not religion bring healing and Lord we pray for relational healing in those areas of the world that need you.

Homeless Hackers in Orlando
Anonymous, a large yet loosely formed group of hackers that claimed responsibility for crashing the Web sites of MasterCard and the Church of Scientology, began attacking the Orlando-based Web sites earlier this week.
The group described its attacks as punishment for the city’s recent practice of arresting members of Orlando Food Not Bombs, an antipoverty group that provides vegan and vegetarian meals twice a week to homeless people in one of the city’s largest parks.
Prayer Post: Lord, we are such a rich country with as much real estate and food to shelter the homeless and to feed all the hungry. But we invented greed and laws that pull people down instead of building them up. We created territories where you can level the walls. We don’t get angry, we go one step further in getting even. We invent tolerance while you invent acceptance and love. We ask for more of you in these situations in our cities and that is our prayer this morning as we pray for acceptance and love for the homeless in Orlando.
Acts 21 Pray for Acceptance and Love in the face of depression and tolerance
4 We went ashore, found the local believers,[a] and stayed with them a week. These believers prophesied through the Holy Spirit that Paul should not go on to Jerusalem. 5 When we returned to the ship at the end of the week, the entire congregation, including women[b] and children, left the city and came down to the shore with us. There we knelt, prayed, 6 and said our farewells. Then we went aboard, and they returned home.
How does a child know they’re gay and why would a child “declare their sexuality?”
Prayer Post; Lord, In today’s NY Times there is an Op-Ed from the NY Speaker of NY City Council who is a Lesbian. Gender confusion is being encouraged. Where are we going with this? I had suspected for a long time that infiltration was being done in Gay families and this testimony from Speaker Christine Quinn seems to be the proof in the pudding. Father, God, please reveal your truth to this insanity.
The broader message: “Think of a child somewhere in New York State, or anywhere in the country who is in their room watching TV. They see this happen. They know they’re gay. They think they’re gay. They can’t tell their parents. They’re terrified. They may not know another gay person. And they see New York State, New York just say that gay families are the same as straight families. That’s something that child will hold on to when they’re bullied, hold on to when their parents don’t accept them.”
1Praise the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song.
Sing his praises in the assembly of the faithful.
2 O Israel, rejoice in your Maker.
O people of Jerusalem,[a] exult in your King.
3 Praise his name with dancing,
accompanied by tambourine and harp.
4 For the Lord delights in his people;
he crowns the humble with victory.
5 Let the faithful rejoice that he honors them.
Let them sing for joy as they lie on their beds.
6 Let the praises of God be in their mouths,
and a sharp sword in their hands—
7 to execute vengeance on the nations
and punishment on the peoples,
8 to bind their kings with shackles
and their leaders with iron chains,
9 to execute the judgment written against them.
This is the glorious privilege of his faithful ones.
Praise the Lord!
