California FastForward Prayer Guide

Nevertheless we made our prayer unto God, and set a watch day and night. Nehemiah 4:9


Join us as we build a wall of righteousness one prayer at a time.

For much time now, the USRPN has been championing a call to BOTH prayer and action; prayer activism. Our goal is to inform the Body of Christ concerning key issues across the nation so that they can not only pray about these issues, but also take action through civic involvement. We call California to join is in this goal and trust this prayer guide will help to assist you. Throughout the course of 2011 we’ve heard from God’s prophets that we are at a tipping point and no more business as usual. The FastForward campaign is a clarion call to the Ekkelsia. We recognize our nation is at a critical juncture and we are responding.

California has the God appointed honor of a forefront call in this election

August 2010 Dr. Cindy Jacobs prophesied to California, “The Lord would say to you California I am making you, I am giving you as the prayer network great authority to shift the nation says the Lord. The Lord says to you there are seeds of prayer that are in the ground of California – generational prayers that I am getting ready to answer not just your prayers says the Lord. For I have been waiting for those I could give a mantle to says the Lord, who could be those who stand for legacy in this state…. and the Lord says, I am anointing and appointing this state particularly to shift for the next election and the Lord says this next election is key for California for I desire to bless this state says the Lord. I love this state and I desire to shift it but the Lord says you are at a ‘tipping point’……

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. Psalm 20:7

Family and Marriage

Divorce is California’s most destructive epidemic. The divorce rate in California is a staggering 75 percent. “For many years, California has been known as the Divorce Capitol of the World, but today’s marriage dropout rate is shocking—- even by California standards…. Something must be done about California’s divorce rate. It is tearing apart the fabric of our society.” A marital state of emergency needs to be declared!! Sited by

On November 4, 2008, California voters approved Proposition 8 by a margin of almost 600,000 votes. Proposition 8 placed into the California Constitution the same language that voters had passed by 61% of the vote in 2000. ‘Marriage is between one man and one woman.’

Although this bill was passed in 2008, Judge Vaughn Walker ruled California’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional in 2010. In 2011 the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was to rule on Judge Walkers ruling but was reluctant to do so – this matter is still in the courts. Cry out for righteous judgment in the gates.

Last year the California State Legislature passed Senate Bill 48 and Governor Jerry Brown signed it into law. SB 48 is also known as ‘California’s so-called “gay history” bill’. SB 48 passed in the Assembly 50-26 and in the Senate 23-14. A total of 72 Democrats and 1 Republican (Nathan Fletcher – San Diego) voted in favor of SB 48. This bill required curriculum that is positive toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other minority figures. But it also prohibited curriculum that reflects adversely on the same groups. The Los Angeles Times condemned the new law by noting, “Real history is richer and more complicated than feel-good depictions.”  SB-48 took effect January 1, 2012 – – Capitol Resource Family Impact along with other pro-family individuals and organizations remain committed to the goal of reversing SB 48. 700,000 signatures will be required to get a new initiative on the 2012 ballot. Sited by


  • For the required signatures to reverse SB-48 and for an awakening among Christians and local churches in California to take action in regards to these and other vital causes
  • For revelation of the importance of the family to the value system of society in California
  • That abortion will be eradicated from our state and a strong voice for the unborn will continue to speak
  • For the hearts of the fathers/mothers and the children to turn toward one another in love

Family and Marriage

Declare: Marriage is defined as between a man and a woman – this matter is settled in heaven therefore let it be settled on earth. For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. Gen 2:24


  • For marriages to be strengthened and that covenant breaking spirits of divorce will not gain hold
  • For a turning of hearts – husband to wife / wife to husband and for their eyes to be opened to the marriage covenant – till death do us part. Matthew 19:1-9
  • Pray that the children and the youth will honor their mothers and fathers

Ekklesia (Church the overarching mountain)

California’s past revival history includes the 1906 Azusa Street Revival, the 1923 revival at the Angelus Temple and the Jesus Movement in 1967. Once again it is time for a powerful move of Godin our state and in our nation. The Lord has said there is a youth revival coming to California again. Join us as we contend for open heavens over California.

And the Lord says I am going to start breaking out among the Asians of Los Angeles even in Chinatown, there’s going to be a great move of God coming to Chinatown in San Francisco and Los Angeles and I literally see these Chinese anointed young leaders that are going into these places, these pockets of resistance for the gospel. And the Lord says, I am going to move in a great way, you are going to loose a youth revival for a Jesus people revival is coming again and it’s going to come like a mighty rushing wind and like a flood of the Spirit says the Lord. Cindy Jacobs August 2010.


  • That the church to takes her place as the Ekklesia; the legislative and governing body
  • For awakening and a mobilization toward civic activism, with a focus on righteous voting
  • For Christians to respond who are called to run for public offices
  • Individually and as a church body we’d be awakened to the condition of our own heart as we cry out for God’s mercy
  • For a spiritual awakening and hunger for holiness among Christian leaders
  • Pray for California to be awakened to God’s unfailing unconditional love and follow in obedience because we love God and one another
  • The Lord has called the church in California to be a city set upon a hill. Declare with us that our light will not go out and we will have a continuous supply of oil in our lamp and keep it burning.

CALIFORNIA Pending Bills-Ballot Measures

Direct link:,_summaries_and_fiscal_statements_for_California_2012_ballot_propositions

NOVEMBER 6 Elections Ballots

Prop 30 – Sales and Income Tax Increase Initiative
Gov. Jerry Brown is leading the charge for Proposition 30, which is a merger of two previously competing initiatives; the “Millionaire’s Tax” and Brown’s First Tax Increase Proposal.

Provisions of Proposition 30 include:

  • Raises California’s sales tax to 7.5% from 7.25%, a 3.45% percentage increase over current law. (Under the Brown Tax Hike, the sales tax would have increased to 7.75%)
  • Creates four high-income tax brackets for taxpayers with taxable incomes exceeding $250,000, $300,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000. This increased tax will be in effect for 7 years
  • Imposes a 10.3% tax rate on taxable income over $250,000 but less than $300,000–a percentage increase of 10.6% over current policy of 9.3%. The 10.3% income tax rate is currently only paid by taxpayers with over $1,000,000 in taxable income.
  • Imposes an 11.3% tax rate on taxable income over $300,000 but less than $500,000–a percentage increase of 21.5% over current policy of 9.3%.
  • Imposes a 12.3% tax rate on taxable income over $500,000 up to $1,000,000–a percentage increase of 32.26% over current policy of 9.3%.
  • Imposes a 13.3% tax rate on taxable income over $1,000,000–a percentage increase of 29.13% over current “millionaires tax” policy of 10.3%.
  • If this proposition is passed in November, 2012, the income tax will apply retroactively to all income earned or received since the first of the year (1 January, 2012).
  • Based on California Franchise Tax Board data for 2009, the additional income tax is imposed on the top 3% of California taxpayers.

Estimated revenue from Proposition 30 vary from Jerry Brown’s $9 billion estimate to the $6.8 billion estimated by the non-partisan Legislative Analysts Office (LAO). The difference stem for the volatility caused by capital gains income from high-income earners, an issue in California’s tax system previously identified by the Legislative Analysts Office (LAO),_Sales_and_Income_Tax_Increase_%282012%29

Proposition 31 – State Budget. State and Local Government
If enacted, it will:

  • Establish a two-year state budget cycle.
  • Prohibit the California State Legislature from “creating expenditures of more than $25 million unless offsetting revenues or spending cuts are identified.”
  • Permit the Governor of California to cut the budget unilaterally during declared fiscal emergencies if the state legislature fails to act.
  • Require performance reviews of all state programs.
  • Require performance goals in state and local budgets.
  • Require publication of all bills at least three days prior to a vote by the California State Senate or California State Assembly.
  • Give counties the power to alter state statutes or regulations related to spending unless the state legislature or a state agency vetoes those changes within 60 days.

Summary of Legislative Analyst’s Estimate of Net State and Local Government Fiscal Impact:
Decreased state sales tax revenues of about $200 million annually, with a corresponding increase of funding to certain local governments.
Other, potentially more significant changes in state and local spending and revenues, the magnitude of which would depend on future decisions by public officials.
Proposition 31 is a project of California Forward. Nicolas Berggruen contributed over $1 million to fund the effort to gather signatures to qualify it for the ballot.,_Two-Year_State_Budget_Cycle_%282012%29

 Prop 32 – Prohibits Political Contributions by Payroll Deduction Cannot use payroll-deducted funds for political purposes without the annual consent of the worker. Prohibits contributions to candidates by unions and corporations. This seems to eliminate special interests in elections. Reading the summary is encouraged. Other information:

Prop 33 – Changes Law to Allow Auto Insurance Companies to Set Prices Based on a Driver’s History of Insurance Coverage. Initiative Statute. Changes current law to permit insurance companies to set prices based on whether the driver previously carried auto insurance with any insurance company. Allows insurance companies to give proportional discounts to drivers with some prior insurance coverage. Will allow insurance companies to increase cost of insurance to drivers who have not maintained continuous coverage. Treats drivers with lapse as continuously covered if lapse is due to military service or loss of employment, or if lapse is less than 90 days. Probably no significant fiscal effect on state insurance premium tax revenues. For vote on November 6, 2012

Prop 34 – Death Penalty Repeal. Initiative Statute.
Summary Date: 10/20/11 | Qualified: 04/23/12 | Signatures Required: 504,760 Proponent: Jeanne Woodford c/o James C. Harrison (510) 346-6200

Repeals death penalty as maximum punishment for persons found guilty of murder and replaces it with life imprisonment without possibility of parole. Applies retroactively to persons already sentenced to death. Requires persons found guilty of murder to work while in prison, with their wages to be applied to any victim restitution fines or orders against them. Creates $100 million fund to be distributed to law enforcement agencies to help solve more homicide and rape cases. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Net savings to the state and counties that could amount to the high tens of millions of dollars annually on a statewide basis due to the elimination of the death penalty. One-time state costs totaling $100 million from 2012-13 through 2015-16 to provide funding to local law enforcement agencies. (11-0035)

Prop 35 – Human Trafficking. Penalties. Sex Offender Registration. Initiative Statute.
Summary Date: 12/23/11 | Qualified: 05/10/12 | Signatures Required: 504,760
Proponent: Daphne Phung c/o James C. Harrison and Kari Krogseng. (510) 346-6200

Increases criminal penalties for human trafficking, including prison sentences up to 15-years-to-life and fines up to $1,500,000. Fines collected to be used for victim services and law enforcement. Requires person convicted of trafficking to register as sex offender. Requires sex offenders to provide information regarding Internet access and identities they use in online activities. Prohibits evidence that victim engaged in sexual conduct from being used against victim in court proceedings. Requires human trafficking training for police officers. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Potential one-time local government costs of up to a few million dollars on a statewide basis, and lesser additional costs incurred each year, due to the new mandatory training requirements for certain law enforcement officers. Minor increase to state and local governments on the costs of incarcerating and supervising human trafficking offenders. Unknown amount of additional revenue from new criminal fees, likely not to exceed the low millions of dollars annually, which would fund services for human trafficking victims. (11-0059)

Prop 36 – Three Strikes Law. Sentencing for Repeat Felony Offenders. Initiative Statute.
Summary Date: 12/15/11 | Qualified: 06/11/12 | Signatures Required: 504,760
Proponent: David Mills c/o Dan Newman (415) 981-9940

Revises three strikes law to impose life sentence only when new felony conviction is serious or violent. Authorizes re-sentencing for offenders currently serving life sentences if third strike conviction was not serious or violent and judge determines sentence does not pose unreasonable risk to public safety. Continues to impose life sentence penalty if third strike conviction was for certain non-serious, non-violent sex or drug offenses or involved firearm possession. Maintains life sentence penalty for felons with non-serious, non-violent third strike if prior convictions were for rape, murder, or child molestation. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: State savings related to prison and parole operations that potentially range in the high tens of millions of dollars annually in the short run, possibly exceeding $100 million annually in the long run. Increased state and county costs in the millions to low tens of millions of dollars annually in the first few years, likely declining substantially in future years, for state court activities and county jail, community supervision, and court-related activities.

Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Potential increase in state administrative costs of up to one million dollars annually to monitor compliance with the disclosure requirements specified in the measure. Unknown, but potentially significant, costs for the courts, the Attorney General, and district attorneys due to litigation resulting from possible violations to the provisions of this measure.,_Mandatory_Labeling_of_Genetically_Engineered_Food_%282012%29

State Senate districts are revised every ten years following the federal census. This year, the voter-approved California Citizens Redistricting Commission revised the boundaries of the 40 Senate districts.
