I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would protect Lorie Smith. Keep her family safe from those who wish her harm, God, and grant her the victory in this SCOTUS case.

Web designer Lorie Smith has faced threats against her life and against the safety of her family, merely for her Christian beliefs. Let’s lift her up in prayer.

From Fox News. 303 Creative LLC owner Lorie Smith could find victory in the Supreme Court regarding her freedom of speech, but the private battle doesn’t end there — in fact, she said it’s been ongoing for six years.

Pray for your fellow intercessor.


Between threats of harm and having her website repeatedly hacked, Smith told Fox News Digital, life at times has left her “terrified” since filing her initial complaint in 2016. She refuses to create websites for same-sex weddings, which is what’s put her business at odds with the state of Colorado.

“I’ve had my home address put on social media, I have received many threats — death threats, threats of bodily harm,” she said. “The security system on my home, my child’s school has been on alert. I’ve lost business, my clients have been harassed and my website … people attempt to hack into it, almost regularly by the hour. I’m not sure what will come after Monday, but if history is any foreshadowing of what’s to come, it’s possible some of those things could continue if not amplify.”

At the core of Smith’s case, 303 Creative vs. Elenis, is a First Amendment matter asking whether Colorado can force a businessperson to express something they don’t believe. It deals with issues of discrimination against the LGBTQ community and on what grounds someone can be denied service. …

Oral arguments began Monday, and with a conservative majority, some project the Court will side with Smith.

“Given that Ms. Smith lost her case in the lower courts and that the Supreme Court agreed to hear this case, there seems to be pretty strong evidence that the Supreme Court intends to rule in favor of Ms. Smith and further strengthen those aspects of the First Amendment protecting Americans against coerced speech mandated by government,” said Mark Smith, constitutional attorney and professor of law at the Ave Maria School of Law. …

Has it been worth the stress, threats and fear to resolve this free speech issue for Smith? She says so.

“It protects not just me — it protects those who have different views on marriage, who perhaps oppose my view on marriage,” she said. …

Father, I join the prayers of those who pray for Lorie Smith for protection. May your angel armies surround her and her family. Turn the hearts of those who hate her and what she stands for. May she be strong for you and continue to stand for righteousness. Give the Supreme Court your wisdom and strengthen our freedoms through this. Give her forgiveness for her enemies.

What is happening in Colorado? It used to be a nice place. Democrats ruin everything. First it was Masterpiece cake and now Lorie Smith. I pray for her protection but maybe she should move to a state that values religious freedom unless the Lord is leading her to stay.

Father God in this case concerning free speech I ask that you give SCOTUS your wisdom. Father protect Ms. Smith as she fights to win this case for herself and for the rest of the US. Father we need your help in America to silence those with an agenda that seeks to silence Christians who believe that same sex marriages and against God’s plan for marriage. Amen

So how is it that the lgbtq community is always reporting that they are so abused and mistreated but everyone that disagrees with them are the ones threatened verbally, physically assaulted and sued in court? FATHER GOD please send YOUR angels to surround and protect Lori Smith and her family from radical people. Let the Supreme Court rule in her favor and let the attacks stop against her and her family immediately in JESUS NAME! Amen!

Ms. Smith,
Thank you for your courage and commitment to free speech. I pray the Lord will continue to protect you from all evil attacks. I pray He will surround you, your family, your home, your business and your children’s school with a legion of mighty angels . I pray that assistance will come in surprising ways to overcome this needless struggle you are undergoing. May you be victorious and reap a multitude of rewards for your courage and determination. May He bless you abundantly and restore sevenfold what the enemy has taken. In the Mighty name of Jesus , Amen
