Coalition Guest Commentary - Sen. Lindsey Graham: Clean Energy Bill Should Balance Security, Economy and Environment

Our nation stands at a crossroads as many significant issues have been ignored for decades. Among them is energy independence and passing along a cleaner environment to future generations.

As a conservative, I have always believed we can and should be better stewards of God's creation. I also know we can strengthen our economy and national security by becoming energy independent.

Last year we spent more than $440 billion on foreign oil and now find ourselves more dependent on overseas supplies than at any other time in our nation's history. Sometimes our money even goes to fund enemies bent on our destruction.

And who will ever forget last year's $4 a gallon gas? America has been held hostage by foreign cartels far too long and it's now time we do something about it.

A PRAYER FOR PROTECTION AND STRENGTH FOR SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM

To Our Prayer Partners,

We are very blessed to have Senator Graham, a Christian in Washington, DC that stands for what he believes is not only right, but critical for the economy and survival of America as we know it today.

Senator Graham has taken a huge stand against several issues, especially the energy crisis that puts our American money in the hands of those that want to destroy Israel and America, OUR ENEMIES. Because of his stand he has come under great opposition. I am asking our intercessors to lift up Senator Graham and ask the Lord to protect him from the stress and to give him increased strength and increase his wisdom with understanding to bring these jobs and the energy money sent abroad back to America and to our people.

Ask the Lord to lift up a standard against his enemies and anoint him how to get the job done. Thank the Lord as he walks through this fire and these waters, they will not overtake him or burn him for HE TRUSTS in the Lord and will never be dismayed in this battle.

Also ask the Lord to anoint him with fresh oil from the Holy Spirit, to increase his boldness in Jesus name and ask the Lord to use him in a greater way to serve America.

Lord we also ask you to let Senator Graham be heard all across America and that intercessors and watchmen on the walls never quit praying for him until this battle is won in Jesus name. Increase honor and favor on Senator Graham's life and let him know we love him, are very thankful for him and will continue to lift him up in prayer for total victory.

Coalition Guest Commentary - Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. John Kerry: Yes We Can (Pass Climate Change Legislation)

Conventional wisdom suggests that the prospect of Congress passing a comprehensive climate change bill soon is rapidly approaching zero. The divisions in our country on how to deal with climate change are deep. Many Democrats insist on tough new standards for curtailing the carbon emissions that cause global warming. Many Republicans remain concerned about the cost to Americans relative to the environmental benefit and are adamant about breaking our addiction to foreign sources of oil.

However, we refuse to accept the argument that the United States cannot lead the world in addressing global climate change. We are also convinced that we have found both a framework for climate legislation to pass Congress and the blueprint for a clean-energy future that will revitalize our economy, protect current jobs and create new ones, safeguard our national security and reduce pollution.
