I Prayed have prayed
Lord of all creation, on behalf of the children of our nation, we pray: Bring down the evil agendas aimed at taking their minds captive and misleading them into bondage to Satan.

Analysis. Several recent news stories leave no doubt that there is an intentional agenda behind the promotion of transgenderism to school-age children. Fox News reports that Dr. Rachel Levine, a transgender Biden official who is assistant secretary for health at the Department of Health and Human Services, promised in a recent speech that “gender-affirming care” for kids is coming. Speaking at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Levine said that medically changing children’s genders is soon to be normalized and has the full support of the Biden administration.

Join others crying out to the Lord day and night.


This is that same Dr. Levine who was heavily criticized by a whistleblower at the Washington University Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital for supporting horribly abusive practices there. The whistleblower’s statements imply that government support of this sort is aimed at making transgenderism an official part of any young child’s upbringing. An updated IFA special report coming out today details how “gender-affirming care” is being promoted in our schools.

And it’s not just the government that is promoting transgenderism. Only last week, a video surfaced of a music teacher at a Minnesota elementary school, who was shown bragging that she deliberately confuses her students about gender. The backlash against her depraved actions was fierce, but the video proves that educators are indeed messing with young children’s minds about gender identity.

None of this aggressive promotion of transgenderism in elementary schools is unique to the U.S. In a recent video on Dutch website revive.nl, a representative of the Dutch Patient Association (NPV) expresses concern that aggressive transgender promotion is poisoning education in the elementary schools. The rep cites a curriculum that directly asks elementary-school-age children to reflect on whether they want to be a boy or a girl.

In addition to the schools, transgenderism is also being promoted aggressively by our public libraries. Drag Queen Story Hour has been spreading and enjoys active support from the American Library Association. According to a report in The Post Millennial, this is the “intentional queering of early childhood education.” The news site notes an article by education academic Harper Keenan and Drag Queen Story Hour founder Lil Miss Hot Mess, an article which asserts that “queer ways of knowing and being” must be part of the education of young children.

The intentionality behind promoting pediatric gender confusion is worth noting. They know that children’s minds are vulnerable, and that they are conditioned to take information from trusted adults like educators at face value. The parts of the brain that enable young children to critically assess what they hear have not yet been developed at that age. Their vulnerability is increased when they are away from their parents — who often have limited knowledge of what is happening anyway, and who are given virtually no say in what their children are taught in school. Parents who have protested fiercely at school board meetings about hot-button issues were labeled “domestic terrorists” by the National School Boards Association.

Satan’s Dark Agenda

What is behind this diabolical promotion of the lie that a human being can change his or her gender, which critics in the medical and psychological environment have pointed out as being biologically impossible?

Several years ago, I wrote an article on my blog outlining the biblical perspective on human identity. In that article, I asserted that the aggressive promotion of LGBTQ lifestyles involves more than just making alternative gender-identity forms acceptable. It is an actual attack on our physical, emotional, and spiritual identity as God has created. That is the work of Satan, who hates everything God has made and wants to destroy human beings because we are made in His image. And God created us with a binary and complementary sexual identity. Anything beyond this is sin, it is an abomination to Him, and it belongs to the devil’s realm.

So, the agenda behind transgendering our children is spiritually driven. It is, indeed, diabolical — straight from the devil himself. Since the Bible warns us to avoid being outwitted by the devil’s schemes (see 2 Corinthians 2:11), it will help us to know a more about how transgenderism came to be promoted so aggressively in our public places of learning.

I believe that during the past few decades, several trends have operated together to create a  moral vacuum in which Satan now appears to have a free hand in assaulting the minds of our children. These are:

  1. Removal of prayer and of the practice of religion from our schools. In a 1962 landmark case, the Supreme Court ruled that it is unconstitutional for state officials to compose a prayer and encourage its recitation in the public schools. This opened the door to all-out attacks by atheist groups on the presence of any religious practice in public institutions of learning. And that has led to the slow but steady disappearance of Christianity in the classroom. God has been legislated out of our schools, and along with Him, any knowledge of the moral principles that make up His design for life has been forgotten and abandoned.
  2. Abdication of parental authority and responsibility. During the 1980s and ’90s, a sharp rise in the national divorce rate has led to an increase in the numbers of families with single working parents. At the same time, steep increases in the cost of living have forced many two-partner couples with children to have both partners working outside the home. Beyond this, the reality of mothers desiring careers of their own alongside their husbands became commonplace and acceptable. These trends led to a decrease in the supervision of children at home, and the schools came to assume the responsibility for parenting those children. Even worse, the proliferation of social media began to influence children’s sense of identity and moral values more than parents could. When I was a chaplain for police and fire departments, I was asked to assemble a mental-health task force for city schools to help combat an increase in drug addictions, violence, and suicides among students. During meetings, school principals stated their concerns that the parenting had been forced upon them and that they were unprepared to do it. A fire-services captain who was a drill sergeant in the Army National Guard agreed. He told me that kids from well-to-do homes with well-educated parents and coming into boot camp often had to learn everything from how to make their beds and iron their clothes to the managing of a bank account. “I feel like we are parenting more than we are training,” he said. Again, this shift in parental authority away from home and onto the schools makes children vulnerable to outside influences. It also makes it harder for parents to intervene when children are subjected to questionable moral teaching. Authority over what goes into a child’s mind now rests in the hands of school boards, library associations, and school administrators. And Satan has staffed those governing bodies well — he uses them freely and frequently to promote anti-Christian beliefs and values.
  3. Godlessness in the Last Days. As Paul warned his disciple Timothy: But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God … (2 Timothy 3:1–4). Paul minces no words when he describes for the Christians in Rome what that godlessness looks like: Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done (Romans 1:24–28). We see this unfolding before our eyes today in obvious ways. Not only has perversion been brought out into the open, but it is also being legalized, applauded, defended, and championed.

The removal of God from our public learning institutions, the abdication of parenting to the schools, and the darkening of minds as people have turned their backs on the Creator and His design for human lives have all created the vacuum in which Satan now fills our children’s minds with immoral lies disguised as “progressive” thinking.

This is why we must pray for our schools and for the emerging generations currently attending them. Of course, Satan can work through culture, legislation, and government authority to get his way as long as God lets him. But he is no match for the power of prayer! And in the schools, he cannot hinder moves of the Holy Spirit that transcend any boundaries administrators put in place.

Perhaps God removed His hand of restraint for a season so that His people would be shaken awake. The bold promotion of transgendering and of queer lifestyles, accelerated and applauded by the liberal media, should be a wake-up call for the Church to take action and reclaim schools through the power of prayer. Section 8 of the Special Report on Transgendering Our Kids lists some points we can pray for revival in our schools. If God is not welcomed back into public education through legislation and policy, then His presence will enter by means of prayer and through Christian students, parents, teachers, administrators, and volunteers with a contagious presence of light and truth!

Lord of all creation, we unite in prayer for our schools and libraries promoting lifestyles and gender identities that are an abomination to You. We ask for forgiveness that we became too comfortable and stood by while Your presence and any respect for Your design for life were removed from our learning institutions. Today we rise to the occasion through the power of prayer, and we ask that Your mighty hand would put a stop to these vile agendas and open wide the doors for Christian witness. Ignite a hunger for You in the hearts of students, teachers, and parents as these offensive teachings spin out of control. May the Holy Spirit move mightily in our schools to defeat Satan’s evil agenda. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

These must be weeded out at all cost to protect our children, freedoms, Christian morals and values. There must be a dethroning, depowering, decommissioning and dispossessing of these evils in our nation, our government, our schools,-universities, our churches, workplaces and media. There is only one God and His Name is the God of all creation. Jesus Christ is the one and only Savior and there is only one Holy Spirit. We must pray and interceed as watchman on the wall and not let up no matter the cost! God have mercy and strengthen His children to stand and decree the It Is Written and the It Is Finished. Strength for the battles to be turned the His righteousness, trust, and justice is the Standard for our nation of the USA.

This is really disturbing. When a baby is born, the infant is either a boy or girl or multiples. The latest is the gender reveal parties for family and friends. I am sure the younger generation is ok with that because they most probably started this new game. Just stick with the gender you were born at and be satisfied with that. If the doctors have to do these surgeries? They have a choice too. I am definitely not ok with this mutilating of children at all. Please protect these children from this sexual and psychological abuse. Psalm 91 over the children and their families in Jesus’ mighty name which is above all names named such as gender elective surgery and hormone therapies used to switch the gender.

Open the eyes of Your church, Lord, so that we may truly see this evil agenda for what it is – evil straight out of the pit of hell – and cause us to feel Your heart and cry out to You in prayer and SUPPLICATION (teach us what that word means, Lord!)
And remove from office and places of authority and leadership all people who are against You and who promote Satanic agendas – or may they have hearts of repentance and turn to You! Put into places of authority and leadership mighty people of faith who know You and Your Word.
In Jesus mighty and strong name!
We decree that America SHALL be saved and our children SHALL be saved, delivered, and made whole!
We decree Your kingdom is being established here on the earth.
All glory to You and to You alone!!

Father, the devil, our enemy, hates the creation you love and the people who bear your image. He is destroying our children. I would pray that his way would be closed and may we as your church continue to close that door to his actions and open the door to God’s protection of our children. As your ekklesia, may we be willing to do spiritual warfare against his plans.

In verse 32 of Romans 1, both the NKJV and NLT state that those who do these abominations encourage others to do them, too. The devil obviously has people like Dr. Levine, and others practicing or sanctioning this demonic plan (librarians, administrators, parents/foster care parents, teachers, college professors, physicians & clinicians, etc.) and are complicit in operationalizing his agenda against our children.
As Intercessors, let us take two or more people that we know or sense through Holy Ghost are being used by satan and whose eyes are blinded by their sinful lifestyle. Let us pray that they be delivered out of darkness and into the light through the power of Holy Spirit. Let them turned from their wicked ways as their mind is being renewed. And let them be used, once delivered, to be a witness of truth, by exposing the lies of satan.

We must shut down this diabolical plan which literally castrates the plan God had for multiplying His seed. God is depending on His Body to preserve mankind-His race. In Genesis 19, He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah since satan had polluted the minds, spirits and souls of the men with a lust for each other.
Our prayers can snatch millions from the fires of Hell. So, let us pray for those that we know, or God puts in our spirit to pray for, that they would receive salvation, be delivered and instead used instead to preach the God New of eternal life with Jesus our Savior.

Why are we leaving our children in the hands of teachers and administrators that want to pervert them? Satan’s plans is to stop reproduction, (being fruitful and multiplying), which GOD instructs us to do. I’m a teacher and 25 years ago I pulled my children out of school when they were in 8th and 6th grades. GOD told me to pull them out and bring them home. Schools weren’t nearly as demonic as they are now! I advocated for homeschool way before I pulled my children out because of the low grade, inferior education schools were giving out. HSLDA can advise homeschooling parents. Also there are many homeschool groups that can help. What about the children left in public schools? Keep looking for a school that teaches academics and values only! FATHER GOD please help our schools to return to moral high ground and improve the profiency level of all students in JESUS NAME!

LORD we are desperate for prayer to be effective in YOUR help to bring open hearts and minds on the need for the HOLYSPIRIT to be in these confused people. Bring a chain reaction to their thoughts to see what YOU JESUS require in their lives.

“Today we rise to the occasion through the power of prayer, and we ask that Your mighty hand would put a stop to these vile agendas and open wide the doors for Christian witness.”

Proverbs 5:21-23
For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the LORD and the LORD examines all his paths. The iniquities of a wicked man entrap him; the cords of his sin entangle him. He dies for lack of discipline, led astray by his own great folly.

Hebrews 4:13
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight; everything is uncovered and exposed before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
Ephesisans 5:5
For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure, or greedy person (that is, an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
2 Corinthians 5:10
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive his due for the things done in the body, whether good or bad.
Matthew 19:25-26
When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

“There is NONE like You, O LORD. You are great, and Your Name is mighty in power.” I am calling upon You to quell the depravity of this man and every other adult who is stoking confusion in children and planning them harm. Please Father, protect our kids. I know nothing is hidden from You. I know one day, I will stand before Your judgement seat. Would You let Dr. Levine and all the others know this? I am praying the wickedness of these individuals entangles NO ONE but themselves. And as they become ensnared, I pray You will do a work in them. Thank You for Your Word which makes all things clear. Thank You for Jesus Christ in whom I TRUST. Amen
