November 9, 2019 | Gloria R., IFA Intercessor
From time to time we get feedback or information from our intercessors we think is worth sharing for the wider network of IFA. Gloria R. sent us this email–we think it was very on-point:
“This picture came across my Instagram feed from the Women’s March movement [before the election]. I support women, but I do not support this type of false feminism. I felt a righteous anger. They are openly promoting spells as a part of their fight. I resolved that I’m going to pray harder for godly women to rise up and be heard in this hour. There is a need for mothers to be raised up and raise the next generation promoting godly values. So with this, I told God this will be a part of my prayers. ‘Father, raise up godly women leaders, a real women’s movement. Raise up Esthers (godly young women), the Deborahs (mothers and female judges), the Marys (women of worship) Annas (women of fasting and prayer) Lydias (women in the marketplace). Father let your light shine and expose this false female movement that seeks to divide us as a people. Give us a true women’s movement. One that knows how to honor people, one that knows being tough as a female doesn’t mean masculine, and knows our feminity is a gift from God.'”
Well said, Gloria! We see the distortion of our identity as women all around us, with identity politics, a Jezebel spirit, and anger that taps into the powers of darkness. Let “women like us,” those who walk with the Lord, be the light in our day–a true reflection of our identity in Christ.
