I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray against left-wing terrorism and Christian persecution. Protect us and our values from this who wish to hurt or silence, Lord.

The following is a speech from the House floor. Representative Paul A. Gosar of Arizona calls on Speaker Pelosi to condemn leftist terrorism and the rampant persecution against Christians and Christian organizations in America. What do you think of his opinions? Please share in the comments.

Analysis. Madam Speaker, I rise today to condemn the dramatic rise in left-wing terrorism. One member of Congress called antifa an “idea.” In reality, it is a left-wing terror organization dedicated to violence against “fascists”–or anyone who believes, just as the Founders did, that our rights come from Almighty God.

Connect with Others in your State in Prayer.

 

Left-wing terrorists have attacked 64 pro-life pregnancy centers since the Supreme Court leak, according to Catholic Vote, including a number of fire bombings. 207 churches have been attacked and vandalized since May of 2020–and 70 since the Supreme Court leak. One terrorist group called Ruth Sent Us told a Catholic that she should “stuff [her] rosaries and [her] weaponized prayer” and that the group will “be burning the Eucharist to show our disgust for the abuse Catholic Churches have condoned for centuries.”

The Bible warns of persecution constantly. In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus says, “But before all this, they will seize and persecute you. They will hand you over to synagogues and put you in prison, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.”

The two-tiered justice system has existed for a while. Democrats have always gotten away with things that would have ended the career of anyone on the right. But a new level has been reached nowadays. Parents must be prosecuted for standing up to sexual and racial indoctrination in public schools. A “disinformation board” is needed to keep an eye on those who believe in massive voter fraud and who recognize the toxicities of the COVID-19 vaccine. The raid of the residence of a duly-elected former president for political reasons is just the culmination of statist weaponization that runs the gamut from the invention of treasonous activity by President Trump to the persecution of peaceful election protestors.

When the Deep State is not busy destroying political opponents, they are standing down to left-wing terrorists. The massive amounts of damage caused by Black Lives Matter and antifa rioters in 2020 remain unpunished. So do the attacks on pregnancy resource centers and churches. There were no arrests made on rioters who were illegally picketing and intimidating Supreme Court justices outside their homes– a clear and obvious violation of federal law.

Persecution of the God-fearing and those with countercultural beliefs has existed for centuries, all the way back to the time of Christ and before. These hate crimes are abhorrent and are to be expected. However, that does not mean we must not fight back. We will not accept this persecution without a response.

I have called for the abolition of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). I will not cease in my calls to defend those persecuted by the State for political reasons–whether they be January 6 defendants or quality public figures like Scott Perry, Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, or Steve Bannon. I signed onto a petition to impeach Merrick Garland. I believe any corrupt senior officials at the Department of Justice and FBI must resign immediately or be fired.

We are in the eye of the storm. Christ said he came to bring division, fire, and the sword. Conflict with the forces of darkness is inevitable. We must expect it. And we must use the political system–as corrupt, rotten, and putrid as it is–to combat the persecution before it is too late.

What do you think of Rep. Gosar’s words? Share your own prayers against left-wing terrorism and persecution below.

I thank You, Lord, for the clear understanding of truth in my Congressman, Paul Gosar — and his willingness to speak out strongly against wrongs despite his being a member of the minority party in Congress. May his life be protected, and his labors on our behalf in Congress be blessed with success. In Christ’s name – above every name, before which every knee will bow in Your time. Amen.

..and..acted in this defense of our country much sooner..which-, the lack thereof-, got us into the mess we are in
Lord, I pray that the lateness of the hour.. will only embolden the remnant of the church- who knows their mission.. as being prayer conduits.. to further illuminate legislators like representative Gosar.. to the task at hand.. calling out evil.. and standing on the side of righteousness, Lord-,on the foundation of your Word -,that our country is founded on.
Lord they say courage begets courage.. let this be true in a manifold way now -,that those who have been waiting for an example.. or for leadership.. would take their cue- in being bold- and to continue this battle for our country before it’s too late.. let the remnant rise up.

In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen

Courageous and appropriate comments to the realities we are sadly witnessing in America. What happened to upholding the Law and punishing lawlessness that helped us live in freedom instead of fear?? Lord, please have mercy on us. Thank you Rep. Gosar!!!

Thank you Jesus, for empowering Congressman Gosar to be a mighty voice of truth & light in the rapidly increasing darkness. Continuing to intercede in prayer for all in Congress and in government, in our schools, churches & communities for their voices to be heard & the power given from the Holy Spirit will silence the evil perpetrated against them. Praying for their family & their protection. And for our enemies who are being used by our only true enemy, Satan, that their hearts to Jesus in submission & redemption.
Let all of us followers also, be light in our families, communities & in the churches by speaking biblical truths & standing up for righteousness, remembering that “the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it”! John 1:5.

Thank you, Lord, that you gave a backbone to someone in Congress to stand up for the truth. I’ve been waiting for someone to rebut the far left. I admire Rep. Gosar for his character and his willingness to speak it out before enemies. I love you Heavenly Father. Your mercy and grace are never ending.

Thank you that he spoke Your Truth, I’m certain with the inspiration and power of Holy Spirit! May the evil one who comes but to steal, kill and destroy recognize his intimidations and lies will not stand against Your power and ultimate Will. May other members of the Senate and House of Representatives who are followers of Christ stand together in prayer and in thoughts, words and deed against this blatant discrimination and persecution. I pray against this in the powerful and precious name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus! May Your power and glory fill the halls of our nation’s capital and may every knee bow at the name of our Lord.

Father, in Jesus name, we call for a hedge of protection around Rep. Gosar, his family and all who stand with him! Lord, we thank you for his boldness and speaking the truth. We ask that an army of righteousness will rise up with Rep. Gosar, as we Your church hit our knees, take up our armor and intercede in prayer. Enough is enough! This hateful attack on our children and persecution against Your people has got to stop. As long as the church is on the earth, we must occupy. That means pray, intercede, bind and block the enemy at all costs! Not to shut the door and pretend it’s all a bad dream. Lord give us wisdom and discernment in these days, to fight the good fight!! In Jesus name amen

The truth was told! I pray God You would open the hearts of those who heard this message! The seeds were planted, cause them to grow and overcrowd the weeds that are strangling those who fight the truth! As a man thinks in his heart, so is he! You are our only hope! The only One we can trust in a time like this! Please protect Rep. Godard, if he wasn’t before, he is now on our enemies radar. I pray the blood of Jesus over this man and his family. Use him mightily Lord, he has shown himself to a man willing and able to stand up for Your name and what is good, right and truthful! Please bring us more men who are willing to speak the truth and are not afraid of our enemy or our current situation.

    Karen Helmich:

    Hi Karen. So many of us understand what you are saying because we have and still do feel the same way too. It does seem that the Left and other evil factions are getting away with all the evil they are doing.
    God knows every plan that they are planning to carry out . There is a scripture that says…..there is a way that seems right to a man but it leads to their destruction. God’s word also assures us that the traps and the pits that the ungodly have laid for God’s children will be a snare to them and that they will fall headlong into the very pits they have dug for us and that they would be swallowed up.
    We are here to be witnesses to all of this and we are so blessed to be part of a growing remnant of Christians who are God’s army for this day and time.
    God told us to occupy until His return so here we are fighting a spiritual battle not against flesh and blood but of evil spirits and power’s of darkness in high places.
    Take heart though because God also said that the light ( Jesus ) cancels out the darkness ( Satan) .
    America has been in tight places throughout our existence and so many terrible things have happened and this we are experiencing now seems to be of epic proportions but there is our hope and faith in a Savior who is greater than Satan and all of his army.
    God said for us to encourage one another a lot and I hope that this helps us all to dig in and hang on because God sees us and He is going to help us. I get down at the things I see such wicked people doing but I remind myself that all of God’s children are precious to Him and that our obedience to Him is what He loves. We are His army and we are powerful through the pulling down of evil strongholds because He gave us everything we would need to fight.
    We are not helpless but powerful because our wonderful Lord has equipped us with everything we need in order to fight the army of darkness.
    We will all keep holding on to God and seeking Him and look forward to the future where we will see God begin to remove these evil people and their evil works. What a celebration we are going to have. All glory , honor and praise be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
    God bless you Karen and all of you.

I am extremely impressed with Rep. Gosar’s words. He nailed antifa and their evil goals. Everything he said is true. As intercessors we must pour more time in interceding for this country, founded on Christian principles. This country makes Sodom and Gomorrah look like like saints. We must take our Praying to a higher level and beg Almighty GOD for forgiveness and a change in the direction it’s going,before it’s too late.

Father please surround him with others in Government who agree with him and we ask Father that you would pour out boldness upon the officials in our Government on Federal , state and local levels .
We ask that you would cause your children to become as bold as lions and
that by your will that we would take through prayer and faith and trust in You our wonderful nation back.
Father we praise and thank you for men and women like Rep. Gosar and ask that you would lift them high in order to perform your will for America.
We stand on your promises Father God.
All glory and praise be to you.
