This post is an adjunct to a larger story, Katherine Harris, Sarah Palin Linked To Same Prayer Warfare Network which explores the fact that both Katherine Harris and Sarah Palin have been in the 'Spiritual Warfare' network of C. Peter Wagner, the self-appointed head of The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR).

A research team publishing on this web site, Talk To Action, has just released a A new 36 page report ( read online / PDF file / some of the highlights of the report ) on the New Apostolic Reformation, its structure, beliefs, history and agenda.



[for transcript of Katherine Harris / Ken Malone's October 3, 2006 conference call see 8th paragraph into story]

A recording of a 2006 conference call between Katherine Harris, then Florida U.S. Congressional Representative, and Florida evangelist Ken Malone, reported on in a November 4th, 2006 Tampa Tribune story because of remarks Harris made during the call which some took as anti-Jewish, indicates that Katherine Harris was then active in the same national Spiritual Warfare network which Sarah Palin has been associated with and may still be a member of.

Mounting evidence suggests John McCain's running mate Sarah Palin is deeply involved with a global religious movement bent on imposing theocracies around the world and whose top leader, C. Peter Wagner, has decreed to his followers it is God's will that a forcible, massive transfer of wealth, from the 'godless' to members of his movement, take place.

Sarah Palin joined the Wasilla prayer group, of C. Peter Wagner apostle Mary Glazier, in 1989, Glazier told Wagner and his top New Apostolic Reformation leaders on July 13, 2008. Another Wagner apostle, J. lee Grady, has confirmed Palin's knew Glazier and joined Glazier's prayer group. A third Wagner apostle, Jan-Aage Torp, has stated that Palin is currently still in Glazier's prayer group which, in the 1990's became part of C.. Peter Wagner's U.S. Spiritual Warfare Network.

In a November 4, 2006 story titled "Harris' Prayer Call Stirs Concerns," By William March and published in The Tampa Tribune, Malone noted that Katherine Harris 'has made past comments that raised questions about her religious sensitivity.'

Malone was serving as a Florida director for C. Peter Wagner's U.S. Strategic Prayer Network, which Harris appeared to be participating in as of October 3, 2006. One of Malone's organizational counterparts at the time, Mary Glazier, served as Alaska Director for the U.S. Strategic Prayer Network (now re-named as the Global Apostolic Prayer Network). According to Glazier's own testimony Sarah Palin, at 24, joined Glazier's Wasilla, Alaska prayer group in 1989, shortly after (according to Glazier) 'God began to speak to her [Palin] about entering into politics.'

Mary Glazier is one of 500 apostles in C. Peter Wagner's International Coalition of Apostles (ICA). As described in an October 25, 2008 New York Times story, YouTube Videos Draw Attention to Palin's Faith, another ICA apostle, Charisma Magazine editor J. Lee Grady, confirmed to New York Times reporter Laurie Goodstein that Palin had known Glazier and been in Glazier's prayer group.

A third ICA apostle, Oslo based Norwegian evangelist Jan-Aage Torp, wrote an excited entry on September 6, 2008 for his blog with the heading, "Palin is a Prayer Warrior and an Apostle!" and Torp stated, in the post, that Sarah Palin was still active in Mary Glazier's prayer network. In an October 2008 appearance on Focus on the Family head James Dobson;s radio show, Sarah Palin thanked prayer warriors across America for their efforts.

[ Ken Malone ] "...tonight over Katherine Harris, Lord, that she would take her seat of authority, in Jesus' name. I say, Lord, that she will take the position that you have carved out for her, that you have reserved for her, as you summon her to that place, Father, in Jesus' name.  And, Lord, I thank you for doing that tonight, in the name of the Lord, Jesus. And, Katherine, I just want to come back to you ; do you sense anything else that we need to pray for over the nation tonight ?

Katherine Harris: Can I just pray ?

Malone: Sure you can.

Harris: I'll just pray.  Father, we just praise you and exalt you, because you are out king of kings and Lord of Lords. You're our ( ? ) of fathers, we could just curl up in the shadow of your wings, and you're our Jehovah Gyra, our provider.

God, we just pray for grace and mercy right now on our nation - how we have forsaken you, how we have left that vision of the hearts of our founding fathers and, God, when we fall off those ( ? ), Father God I pray, you just redirect us right now. Oh Father, we just pray that once again that we be that shining city on a hill, that one nation under God. And, Father, awaken our churches now. ( ? ) the pastor's hearts so that those who think there's no place for government... have them understand Kingdom Government and how they need to be involved in the governance on this Earth because God is our government. In Isaiah 33:22 he is our king, our judge, and our lawgiver.

And, Father God, right now on the day after the Jewish New Year, Father, after the day after atonement as they enter in their New Year, Father, I just pray that you would bring the hearts and minds of our Jewish brothers and sisters into alignment. Father God, we just... we pray for Israel and we lift up Israel in its safety and - your sacred, you sacred nation, father - and we just pray for them as we are moving forward in these times of Jubilee and of times of difficulties.

Father we ask that you test the heart of our elected officials and turn them towards you and have them fall on their knees asking for forgiveness. And, we pray expectantly, we pray expectantly for your victory to be accomplished and we laugh at the enemy. With Psalms 1:26, 2 and 3 it talks about how we laugh at the enemy and other nations and say "what a great thing you have done." Father, we laugh at that spirit of care and we say you have no place, no dominion  [ Malone: "yes, yes" ] in this country and you will NOT have victories here any longer. We say that you will NOT be a spirit of fear, a spirit of terror and we just decree in the clear that there will be a shift in this nation, that there will be an enormous revival, even a revolution even as we speak, and that it would effect Washington, D.C. and that those heavens would open like Chuck Pierce prayed, and Cindy Jacobs, and Dutch [Sheets] in Washington, D.C., or Marilyn just recently, and that, indeed, a way would be made. And, Father, once again, once again, we'll rejoice with Your son and bring this nation into alignment with Your government, with Your Kingdom principles and authority. And we ask all these things in Your son's precious and holy, holy name. Amen.

Malone: Amen, amen. Yes. And, Father, I just come in agreement with Katherine. Lord, you spoke to my heart several months ago and said when civil government and God's government align together for the nation, that you would bring reformation to Transformation. And so, Father, we join our hands with Katherine, and Sam Brownback, and President George W. Bush and others, Lord, who are, who have righteous character...

endorsement of Ms. Harris's re-election. Perhaps it was her infamous 'take a look at these' shot, with her standing obliquely so as to fully advertise her surgically enhanced "commodities".

Can I also add that I had Katherine Harris' face scrubbed from my brain; Thanks for reawakening the nightmare. Pllbbbtt. ;)

Knowing that Sarah Palin is deeply involved in partnership with the Spiritual Warfare crowd is one thing; Getting her to admit to it in public, thus showing her hand before she's installed in higher office is quite another thing. Should Ms. Palin be cornered long enough to get an answer, I predict dance moves that John Travolta would envy.
