Larry Tomczak: How to Pray for 'Wicked' Leaders Harming America

In the early 70s, Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew occupied the White House as president and vice president. Behind the scenes they were engaged in harmful activity.

Ten minutes from the White House, our weekly meeting of 2,000 primarily young people prayed that God would raise up righteous leaders and remove the ungodly. In less than two years, for the first time in U.S. history, both politicians at the highest level of government were exposed and resigned.

Two years from now, Intercessors for America national prayer ministry will celebrate 50 years equipping people how to pray and fast effectively for our nation. I've been privileged to be a board member since the time period described above.

Education System Sinks Further Into Perversion

File this one in the "Believe it or Not" section. If you already think this country is going downhill, well it just slid a little further down.

A Vermont public high school homecoming football game last Friday night turned into a "drag ball" runway at halftime, with a mix of students and faculty members parading in gowns, wigs, and makeup—and a big crowd in rainbow colors to cheer them on.

Yes, you read that right—it happened at a public high school, and faculty joined in.

Credit Card Company's New Practice with Porn Sites

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation is reporting that Mastercard is taking an important step to confront—and hopefully end—the "horrific" abase on sites hosting pornography. Their newest policies officially went into effect as of October 15.

Charisma News reported on Mastercard's initial efforts to take down pornography sites like Pornhub months ago.

The new policies require banks connecting sellers of "adult content" (a.k.a. pornography) to Mastercard to ensure that the companies meet the following five standards:

  • "Clear, unambiguous and documented consent"
  • "Documented age and identity verification for all people depicted and those uploading the content"
  • "Content review process prior to publication"
  • "Complaint resolution process that addresses illegal or nonconsensual content within seven business days"
  • "Appeals process allowing for any person depicted to request their content be removed"
