Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned. And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him. When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them. Acts 5:26-33

Pastor Stephen Broden and I (Johnny Hunter ) knew that we were risking arrest on the National Day of Prayer if prayed in front of the White House. This is one three places where it is illegal to pray in America - a public school classroom, on the steps of the United States Supreme Court and in front of the White House. However, we are living in a time when Christians must be bold like Daniel and let people see them praying when it becomes illegal to do so. Keep in mind that the current administration, like many California schools, have not problem with religious activities, just Christian activities and prayer. We started the day with a message to those around us that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, BHO is not. That was fine. However when we knelt to pray, that was the activity that put everything in action. Yellow tape went into place and people were ordered to leave the restricted area. We received three warnings to cease and desist. Someone in the White House ordered the water sprinklers to be turned even though there was overcast and it had rained earler. We got wet but we kept on praying. After we were handcuffed the water sprinklers were turned off. In the paddy wagon, it was revival. It was as if Jesus was sitting between us. Pastor Broden led the song "Victory is Mine!?

There are things that are happening in this nation that 50 years ago would have been unthinkable to the average American citizen, especially Christians. We are moving towards the day that church sanctuaries will taken by imminent domain rulings to put up buildings for tax revenue. When they tried to shut down that home Bible study in California, it was not a fluke; their timing was just off -- it was too soon. Regardless what the future holds, like the apostles, it is better that we obey God.
