I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we will be careful and watch ourselves closely so that we will not forget the things our eyes have seen or let them slip from our hearts as long as we live. We will teach them to our children and their children after them. Deu. 4:9
Reading Time: 3 minutes

President Trump explicitly stated his intentions to restore a love for America through the teaching of American history from a patriotic perspective. On Thursday, September 17, 2020, the President the first White House Conference on American History. He said, “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country.”

President Trump’s declaration on American history made a political impact and he drew a spiritual line in the sand when he said, “We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed.

Immediately those who dominate the current version of this country’s history in our public schools flung a barrage of hateful accusations at the President, denying the problem of inaccurate history even exists in our schools. David Jackson, writing for USA Today, said, “Trump is failing his own test of history in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, an economic crisis, climate change, and the most compelling call for racial justice in generations.” USA Today’s article accused President Trump of being a dictator and following in Putin’s footsteps.

One spiritually significant proclamation instigated by William Wilberforce was issued in 1787. England was in a time of moral decadence with overfilled debtors’ prisons, massive child labor, rampant prostitution, and legal slavery. Wilberforce convinced King George III to issue a Proclamation for the Encouragement of Piety and Virtue to be read to every congregation in England on the same Sunday. As a result, England eradicated slavery and experienced a revival of morals.

The fact that anti-American history has been taught in our schools is undeniable. No longer confined to the four walls of a schoolroom, we have visible evidence of the spirit of lawlessness in our streets, resulting from our schools teaching Marxist ideology. We face a history desert in our schools, not just by the omission of history in the past, but also because our colleges are not training qualified history teachers to fill our classrooms. In  2000, the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) conducted a report, Losing America’s Memory. They found that college seniors at fifty-five of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the nation had a blatant ignorance of American history. Eighty-one percent of seniors from the top 55 colleges and universities received a grade of  D or F. They could not identify Valley Forge, or words from the Gettysburg Address, or even the basic principles of the U.S. Constitution.

Along with President Trump’s Proclamation, he also announced that he would soon sign an Executive Order establishing a national commission to promote patriotic education, called the 1776 Commission.

The President has done his part, and now it is up to the intercessors to pray into this transformation. We must honor the President’s line in the sand and engage in the spiritual warfare needed to win this battle. We are at a tipping point in our educational system. A call to prayer has been issued. Being spiritually alert, we recognize the urgency of the moment. It is time to enter into a spiritual battle to instill within our future generations a sense of destiny for our nation.

The task ahead will not be easy; for over 50 years, the leftists have dominated our classrooms and taken advantage of the history and civics vacuum in our curricula. Their doctrine, entrenched in the minds of our students, will require declarations and prayers that are not for the casual intercessor. The President has opened up the way for us, and now it is up to God’s people to take on the task to see that the tide turned, and our teachers, once again, teaching history that includes our Judeo-Christian values.

Today, we proclaim a reversal of the curse of lack of knowledge of America’s history among our students. We declare a turn-around in our schools. Our children will learn God’s ways and the ways He has saved this nation and brought us prosperity and peace. We declare His goodness over our land.

Father I praise you for giving this country President Trump, I praise you for Your word that gives us direction in all things. You told us to ask and that we have not if we don’t ask. I am coming to asking that you give President Trump victory in this, to turn our country around and our schools. That the truth would be taught regarding our history of this great country that you brought people here desiring to be able to worship You. That our children would be taught the truth, how our country has helped other countries, that men and women have died fighting to protect others. That our country has sent missionaries, doctors and teachers to help other countries. We have fought for freedom. Please Father turn our country back to You. Please heal our country and let many come to You this day repenting of the wrong we have done. Let the evil ones turn to You. Open their eyes to see they need You. I ask all of this in the name of JESUS

Very emotional for me as i see the evidence of the bad ed. recieved by my sister, husband, their kids, my kids, disbelief in God, which has caused such cultural skewed world view & now the actual destruction of America. God’s mercy & powerful will be on us in Jesus name

    Lord I pray that the revelation of truthfulness of our history be the u-turn that puts our nation and our families on the right path of salvation for: minds, souls and the Spirit of Integrity be exchanged for the lies of “deceptive remembrance.” Even in this hour cause our consciousness to be pricked by truthfulness over deception. amen

Regarding the teaching and learning of America’s Christian history, one of the best tools around bar none is the hot-off-the-presses book ‘Principles of American Government’ by Ben Gilmore, published by FACE [The Foundation of American Christian Education], now available at FACE.net . . . As a “timeless course in the guiding principles that form the bedrock of our Constitution,” it is an excellent resource for scholars, home schoolers, and intercessors alike.

Dear Father,Thank You that Pres. Trump has signed an executive order to teach the truth regarding American history in our schools. This is a huge task and seems impossible except except that You are God and nothing is impossible for You. We are so sorry,Lord, for allowing the Left to take over our schools. Please forgive us and extend your mercy to us. Cause us to wake up and support the President however we can. Thank You, Lord.

    September 25, 2020

    Glad your truths Prevail father God and let every lie and misappropriation of information be stricken from the textbooks used to teach children of the history of their great country. Thank God for Christian publishing houses who published books that speak the truth.

A large percentage of our textbooks in our schools are put out by a Middle Eastern company with an American name. They denigrate both America and Christianity. Let’s change that!

Dear ones, let it be that when our education system in the public system has slide of course in the area of history or anything else for that matter, it is not complaining or blaming per say, it is waking up and examining what has and is happening and then combating it by speaking out and taking action in whatever the Lord leads you. it may be through prayer only, then do that. ask Him for wisdom, He says to us He will give it to us liberally. But, just grumbling and complaining is ones only action, grieves the Lord. his words were very harsh to the Israelites in the desert for this! let us all examine ourselves In this issue of our countries education period and repent if needed so we can be part of the solution, not the problem. I myself am convicted that after 50years my knowledge on history is pretty foggy to say the least. That is why I tune into Faith in History, moderator, William Federer..he lets us learn history like no one I know! he makes history exciting. he has many books, [email protected]. Miracles in history is amazing, too. he is on Christian tv. Tune in you will be amazed. Lord forgive us when we have neglected being watchman on the wall, the enemy never sleeps, he is like a roaring lion whom he may devour. Helps us to be vigilant, aware and cut him off In his tactics, schemes, actions in the authority you have given us in Jesus name. David should be our everlasting example; Gideon, Esther to, to name a few. In Jesus name, Amen.

For now… There are many really good history curriculums that you can purchase on your own to teach your children real history until we can get it back into our schools.

    “Down with the ‘wedcoats- UP WITH LIVERTY!” my three year old grandson declares after being read a portion of The Incredible Adventures of Rush Revere.

    Watching impressionable kids get excited about history is one of the most encouraging aspects of teaching and passing down more than oral histories for they are written and must be preserved not destroyed.

    Praying for and thanking God for men like David Barton and Rush Limbaugh for sharing history with the youth of this nation. Grandparents and Sunday School teachers are filling in the gaps of an educational system held hostage by the ACLU, atheists and socialist groups determined to wipe out the lessons learned from history.

    I pray Lord that our children will be rescued from indoctrination of the occult and identity confusion and be influenced by godly people who love your truth. amen

On October 24, the National Constitution Bee will be held. I understand that there are not a lot of applicants from 8th to 12th grade for the Constitution Bee held in Brentwood, TN. There are three prizes, the first prize being $10,000. Go to nationalconstitutionbee.org to learn more. It seems like a step in the right direction!

September 24, 2020

I was very happy to hear of this 1776 Commission. It is important for people to read “primary” or original documents and then discuss from them, rather than reading someone’s interpretation of those documents. If you are interested in learning more for yourself, there is an organization called Wallbuilders led by David Barton that is an excellent source for primary documents.

WOW!!! After all these years, has the written history of this country been nothing but lies? Am I understanding this correctly? It is sad to believe that God would raise America to the greatness that she is and it is all based on lies. Now, in 2020, President Trump has the truth? Is he going to rewrite history? This man is too good to be true. Again I say “WOW”! What am I going to do with all that I learned from the history books? I am 75 years old. Father God, I am so thankful that YOUR WORD IS TRUTH and stands throughout eternity. Your Word does not need altering. THANK YOU.

    September 24, 2020

    You are confused. The history you learned 70 years ago was not lies.

    However what kids have been learning since about 1990 onward has been corrupted and is FULL of lies.

    Very different from what you learned! They teach marxism, that our country was horrible and evil and should be destroyed. Didnt you read the article? Trump just wants to restore the truth that the twisted communists have removed from our childrens schools. If you have a problem with that i dont know what else to say.

      Jacquelyn Yvonne Miller
      September 25, 2020

      Perhaps I am confused. And truly I do have a problem. My question is: Who are these teachers and why are they allowed to teach our children lies? Why are the parents not going to the school systems and refusing to go along with this? How were the ‘twisted communists’ able to infiltrate our school systems?

Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, Your Word does not teach we should punish and blame the children for their parents wrongdoing. Your Word does not teach we should punish one generation for the
sins of another generation. One person cannot apologize for another person’s wrongdoing. Your Son, became the perfect sacrifice for all sin. The forgiveness He gave and won is the answer for all hurts and injustice.
Lord, Principalities and Powers of Darkness like for us to become bitter, complaining, unforgiving about past injustices, and like for us to hang onto them so a cloud hangs over our lives. The cloud dampens our enthusiasm and zest for life. Christians lights are dimmed that should shine forth the forgiveness, hope, and promises of the Gospel message. We should let the dead past, bury its dead”. How does it profit anyone to
live with resentment and hurt, Lord?

Lord if someone is going for Truth in all sincerity, I believe that is a good thing. Let the truth be written in the history books. Every civilization has experienced the “good” and bad”. Lord, a document such as the Constitution, is only as good as the people administering it. Some people had good motives, others did not;, and abused and chose to misinterpret its tenets. Lord, we can’t change the past. Grant us the wisdom to
set aside our inclination towards resentment and unforgiveness for past injustices, and on an individual basis
be a person who reflects the forgiveness and love of Jesus. Amen

Having 3 daughters who are now teachers, it is horrifying to see how America’s history has been butchered and blatantly disrespected by liberal teachers and professors. As moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents and Christians, we Must rise up at this time and intercede for the hearts and minds of our children and this great nation. We Must speak and teach the truth In love and do whatever we can physically and spiritually to reverse the work of the enemy in our education system. Bless President Trump, who has always loved and cherished this country, for taking a bold stand against this tyranny! May we join him and the will of Heaven by doing our part in restoring the Historical truth of this great Nation under God!

1776…History in need of Truth, indeed. It is not pretty and the name of Jesus was Grossly Blasphemed!
In 2016 Dr. Negiel Bigpond, Euchee Chief on behalf of All Tribes DC, gave the most heartfelt and powerful Forgiveness Prayer Ever recited! It’s online.
To this date the closest thing to a Humble American return of Greater Apology, was from Pelosi! …at last years DC dedication ceremony, of the Great Ponca Chief Standing Bear.
How can “we” jump over 1492 …Do we need to check out the Truth about Columbus and the Pope he was following orders for?
There were Millions of people on this Turtle Island now America. History…what happened to them?
What was the template used to create our great Constitution? Maybe we should look at the Iroquois Federation for a bit of historical understanding.
“We” have Greatly sinned! Everyday since “we” did to the Native peoples of this country what the SAME Evil Entities, working through people, are doing to US ALL now!
“Our” greatest sin today is Omission!
Too many Native peoples are falling in with BLM. That seems to be their main recognition. Again, “poisoned blankets” offered as help.
I pray Pres. Trump visits with Dr. Negiel Bigpond and other extremely dignified Native representatives this coming week for All Tribes DC 2020!
Yes Dear Creator God in the mighty name of Bright and Morning Star WE ALL Need 2020 Clear Vision 🙏 🙌
REAL Repentance, Being Humble before You, so that You can lift us up!
Thank you!

Dear Father God, it is good we have a man in office that hears You & sees Your love for this country as the shinning city on the hill. May our children learn the true history of the founding of this country & the Constitution. The constitution was written with You at it’s center. You are needed in our schools to protect our children. Grant parents wisdom in this matter. When prayer was in school, You were there to protect them. When we said the pledge we learned pride for our country. Please Lord allow the people to see that You are the way & the light of this world. Thank You Jesus for our history and the faithful men of the past.

GM Father God,
Thank You for President Trump. Thank You for who You Are.
You have appointed President Trump for a time like this. Bless 1776 Commissions and make it into LAW that can not be changed. Help us, parents who has studied the history of America to tell this story to their children. Help children whom parent has never learned the American History to tell to their parent about it.

Father-God, You have a reason for allowing America to be established. Help America thru its citizen who will be pleading without ceasing for Your blessings and protections to go back to its formal glory as You intended it to be.

Father-God, Your will be done. Help the next generation of the Church in 5-10 years to enjoy the fruition of praying without ceasing.

Father-God, we ask You to pursue MSM and Billionaires thru the Democratic Party ANTIFA BLM who have been plotting to overthrow America, the country, that have made them successful. I don’t think people in the right mind will do such a thing. I’m certain they are under the influence of the father of lies, i.e. Satan. Therefore their mind is abnormal. Father, please send uneasiness, anxious, discomfort in all these people hearts to long for YOU and that void only Jesus can fill it.

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus’ name we pray and thank YOU. Amen.

September 24, 2020

Amen, God this is one of my biggest concerns with one of my 3 children educated in public schools and the other two in a Christian school. There was and is a stark contrast. However Christian education is not off the hook. Many kids are still ignorant of our system of government and basic documents which is unacceptable. God help us to turn the tide. Show your mercy once more give us wisdom and resolve in Jesus name I ask it amen.

September 24, 2020

Lord, we stand in need! We have been complacent in our responsibilities to You, our nation and our children. We have failed to do what You commanded in Deuteronomy 6:5-8 “Love The Lord your God with all of your heart, with all of your soul, and with all of your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be on your heart. Repeat them to your children, talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the door post of your house and on your gates.” We have left our children to the state and the state has kicked You out of the public square. We are reaping what we have sown. Lord, You are the only Faithful One. Only You can turn our hearts from selfishness to selflessness! Your Word reminds us that only You can change the heart of a king! We need heart changes. We need to humbly confess our sins and renew a right relationship with You! Make us a people that longs to experience Your grace and mercy! Ps 24 “Who May ascend to the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in His Holy place? The one who has clean hands and pure heart, who has not set his mind on what is false, and who has not sworn deceitfully. He will receive the Blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.” Hear our cries, oh Lord! Wake the hearts of Your children. Grant us wisdom, discernment, perseverance and strength! Lord, be glorified in this mess we have brought on ourselves! Be magnified and exalted! Hear the hearts of Your people in praise and worship! We love You and we trust in You alone!

Father as we come before you in prayer for our nation. Thankyou that we have an amazing president, who loves America!
We will come together in unity to take back our history, and our children will learn truth not twisted lies about our constitution!
We reverse their lies and we declare American history will be taught 8n truth to all schools. In jesus name!

September 24, 2020

I thank and praise You , Lord, for raising up President Trump for such a time as this. We are blessed to have him as our national leader. Please continue to give him Your vision and wisdom. Please give him grace to boldly proclaim Your ideals and intentions for our nation.

Martin Luther states: “I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth. Tragically, we are seeing the produces anti-faith liberalism and socialism in our schools the students as they riot, loot, steal, and destroy their neighbors property and burn Bibles and destroy religious statues

    September 24, 2020

    Didnt you learn about the emancipation proclamation and the amendments that corrected those wrongs? Goodness! Slavery was wrong but it’s been gone for 150 years.

      Rev. Tom Chopp
      September 25, 2020

      Sally, Tragically, since the Fall into sin, we have practiced “slavery” to this every day. Islam believes “it is the will of Allah” thus submit to your human Muslim male masters. Sadly, in northern Africa Christians are being killed, rape, and enslaved by Islamic warring tribes. Sadly laws written on the books do not translate to stopping sin, only curbing it. Just think if we call kept God’s Moral law as summarized in the 10 Commandments what a “perfect” world/society we would be.
