Demonic Abortion Statues in NYC–On-site Prayer
New York’s Madison Park now features a large golden statue in honor of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and there’s one to match a block away atop the Appellate Division of the State Supreme Court. Watch and pray with IFA Contributing Writers Joyce and Rich Swingle, as they break down the demonic symbolism and intercede in front of the statues.
For further information, click here. This statues were made Shahzia Sikander, an artist who formerly reviewed controversial statues and monuments in New York City. Her work will also appear in Houston later this year.

To honor abortion is the same as honoring murder, because that is what abortion is. Plain and simple! Murder!
Where are the conservative people in NY and why are they not protesting this ugly evil statue. Dear God bring down your wrath upon that city and open the eyes of the unbelievers please Lord please 🙏
Lord God bring us the truth through the world of demonic deception. So many people believe what they want to believe and unfortunately involves lies on top of lies.
Lord, we pray that You will expose the truth that these statues, and others like them, are in fact demonic altars designed to issue an invitation for the enemy to enter in. We pray that You will destroy every one of these demonic altars in our nation and around the world. We thank You, Lord, for the destruction of the Georgia guidestones, however You accomplished that. And Lord, we pray that altars will be set up that would be pleasing to You, in our homes and in public places, and invitations given to You to rule and reign in our nation. We thank You for Your faithfulness, Your heart for America to be free, and for the covenant You entered into with our nation at the very beginning. In Jesus name, amen.
Lord, You alone are God. You are mighty & there is none like You. I pray that You would destroy the statues by Your hand Lord. Whether it be storms, lightning, wind, disintegration…. whatever You choose Lord, we ask & believe that You will tear them down. May it be known that it is Your hand Lord that is doing this work.
Lord, if You choose to remove it by having a group of people tear it down, then so be it. If You choose a sinkhole to swallow up this unholy tribute to the celebration of murder, then let it be so Lord. When the unbelieving look upon this statue of falsehood, may they not be overcome with awe but let Your holy Spirit bring discomfort, conviction and rejection. Let both believers & the unbelieving reject this monstrosity & protest it’s display.
Lord, reveal to the world again — that You alone are God.
Let HISTORY repeat itself!! Abba, I pray that every ungodly statue nationwide will fall prostrate. Only You Oh LORD can cause tremors to take place underneath these statues. Do it Again! Oh LORD, Do it Again! Let the world know that there is only ONE GOD!! Yahweh is Your Name!! Jesus is LORD over America and the world! His will IS GOING TO BE DONE, HERE ON EARTH AND IN HEAVEN!! DO IT AGAIN, LORD!!!
Amen! Thank you for this video. So glad to pray along with it.
Father God, break down the demonic strongholds in America! Break these statutes as you did in the time of the Philistines!
God, thank You for your power, glory & strength!
In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
“Hafa Adai” (Island Greetings) from Guam, U.S.A., a Territory of the United States out here in the Western Pacific: We agree in this prayer vigil against this new statute in New York City. We too come against the intention of this statute to lift up the former Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg and abortion. In Jesus’ Name!
FATHER GOD open the mouth of the world to swallow not only this statue but all satanic culture. I pray this in the name of LORD JESUS CHRIST 🙏 OUR SAVIOUR AMEN
Strike them to the ground LORD
Yes and amen to these declarations and decrees. Lord bring forth the wind of Your Spirit, the pneuma. I call Your wind forth from the North, the South, the East and the West. Blow over this country, over these statues, and the high places in this country in the name of Jesus. There is only One who is supreme, only One who reigns eternal, only One who is all powerful, only One who is King of all kings and Lord of all lords. We lift Him up, the Lord Jesus Christ. We stand with Him with full authority and power, with satan and the demons underneath our feet. Thank YOU JESUS!
Heavenly Father, let the abomination of this wretched idol be toppled and destroyed and every spirit attached to it! Just as in the Book of Daniel, concerning the dream of Nebuchadnezzar, let the mighty rock “Jesus” destroy it. Hallelujah! Let even those who do not consider themselves Christians, see this as wicked and dark, not disguised as art. Thank You for the faithfulness of Rich and Joyce Swingle to raise awareness and for taking spiritual territory over and around this exhibit. What the devil meant for harm, actually caused these servants of God to proclaim victory and deny all evil at the place called “justice” in Albany, New York. Only God would plan it this way! Please bless them LORD for their faithful witness, loving hearts and humble service. In Jesus’ matchless name. Amen.
I bind the demonic angels of darkness that influence this piece of garbage of the fallen angels of Moloch idol carry. in the MIGHTY name of Jesus. Let anyone who looks at this repulsive idol feel sickened by it. Lord JESUS have mercy on NY. There is only one GOD, ‘ YAWEH’ who is above all. The one Creator and only creator! please Lord let your MIGHTY hand Strick it down and all other idols that they try to set themselves above you. In JESUS mighty name I decree and call authority over. LEet them come down, YOUR WILL, YOUR WAY.
Agreeing with the prayers decreed and declared over these statues. We bind up the assignment of this dark force and we loose God’s Glory over the Supreme Court & over the land. Hedge America with the promises of Zech 2:5. Awaken the Body of Christ! No more slumber!
Yes I am in agreement that this demonic attempt to over take America and our laws and our faith be broken and destroyed by the power of the blood of Jesus! We speak godliness and righteousness to reign in America again and revival to sweep across this great land! In Jesus Name!! Amen!
We bring you wicked woman down and command you to sit on dust and ashes in pain and shame. We command loss of children (those under your satanic influence) and widowhood to come upon you in an instance (Isaiah 47). Your nakedness is uncovered, shame is all over you. We cut off your influence upon NYC and America. This nation abhors you. Thus far have you come, you will progress no further. Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, in the name of Jesus Christ!
Father have your way. We know this ungodly statue is an offense to you and your children. Jesus we send your blood against these two ungodly man made statues that represent the sin of abortion to bring destruction to them. Father God open the minds and hearts and cast out pride and selfishness of those who have been deceived in thinking it is alright to destroy a precious life. I also pray that all those who are taking pictures of this demonic statue will realize what it really represents and delete it out of their phones. Let there be no repercussions to the innocent but an awakening to the works of darkness to pull them into his traps. Down with every ungodly statue that man has put up and back up with your 10 commandments precepts and concepts in Jesus mighty name.
Father God you will be done on Earth as it is in heaven abolish all evil that is not your plan in the name of Jesus thank you Father God
Just as you supernaturally removed the idol of Dagon the fish god, do this to these abominations before you! So glad for this excellent report absolutely necessitating us to PRAY!!!
Abba! Father God! We decree that this statue and the demonic hold over this state and over America WILL be demolished! America WILL be saved!
Thank you, Rich and Joyce, for exposing these heinous statues. I would have never known about this had you not brought it to our attention.
Praying that both of these statues and any other demonic statue across the United States will be utterly incinerated in a way that the whole world will know that the destruction is supernatural and of God Almighty.
There is more to this story.
No mention of Houston, Texas? Why?

No mention as to the name of the artist, Shahzia Sikander?
Because she was on an 18 member board put together by former NYC mayor De Blassio to “develop guidelines on how the City should address monuments seen as oppressive and inconsistent with the values of New York City,”
SHAHZIA SIKANDER, visual artist and MacArthur Fellow with experience in public art
(SEPTEMBER 8, 2017) Three weeks after announcing the city would be conducting a 90-day review of “all symbols of hate on city property,” de Blasio has announced the 18-member Mayoral Advisory Commission on City Art, Monuments and Markers, which will “advise the Mayor on issues surrounding public art and historic monuments and markers on City-owned property” and “develop guidelines on how the City should address monuments seen as oppressive and inconsistent with the values of New York City,” according to a press release. Ford Foundation president Darren Walker and the Mayor’s cultural affairs commissioner Thomas Finkelpearl will co-chair the committee, which includes singer, civil rights leader, and long-time de Blasio supporter Harry Belafonte.
Thanks so much for sharing these additional details. We were focused on praying on site.
Praying through these additional details, and I’ll let people know about them during today’s Headline Prayer Live.
My comment above wasn’t a prayer, it was stating facts concerning these statues. What happened in NYC (in 2017) and the University of Houston’s involvement.
This information needed to be brought forth as the information was not mentioned in the video. The video only dealt with New York, when these structures also had a Houston Texas history.
The video didn’t mention how the artist was part of the 18 member committee put together to come against “all symbols of hate”. This is the PDF of the report put together in January 2018 by this committee.
All members of the Mayoral Advisory Commission on City Art, Monuments and Markers that met in 2017 are listed in this document. Shahzia Sikander is mentioned on page 37.
This document established a process to evaluate City Art, Momuments, and Markers.
I’m asking for prayer for the up coming Supreme Court Justice race here in Wisconsin, first in Feb for the primary, and then in April for the general. Right now we have a Conservative majority, but one of the Conservative Justices is retiring, opening the possibility for the majority to flip to liberal, which could lead to pro-abortion rulings, and more fraud in our elections, plus so many other anti-Christian/traditional family rulings. Thank You all for your prayers.
Jim, I am praying in agreement for Wisconsin’s conservative majority to remain! I just finished the Book of Job and was reminded, “I know that You can do all things and that no plan of Yours can be thwarted.” Please Lord, make this election for Your Glory and the people’s good. I remembered Job repented and God blessed him. We have so many needs but there is only 1 answer, Jesus. May countless confess Him as Savior today, tomorrow, and in an increasing number in each day to come!
National Repentance Event on Feb. 1, 2023, at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. from 6:30am Eastern Standard Time until 8:30am Eastern Standard Time.
Will you join us in publicizing, watching and praying two hours online? On February 1, the event will be available on demand starting at 8:30am Eastern Standard Time. You can join online by clicking here. We need His mercy.
Praying in agreement with you, Jim, that a God-fearing, Spirit-led believer will take the place of the retiring judge.
On July 6, 2022, the Georgia Guidestones “blew up” and were later removed. I could go on and on but will spare you and simply say, “may it be done again.”
Romans 1:18-32 God’s Anger at Sin
Psalm 138:8. The LORD will fulfill His purpose for me. LORD, Your love is eternal; do not abandon the work of Your hands.
Dear Father and Almighty God, You show Your anger from Heaven against all wicked people who suppress the truth. They know the truth about You because YOU HAVE MADE IT CLEAR. They know You but will not worship You or even give You thanks. Instead, they think up foolish ideas in their dark and confused minds. And since they think it foolish to acknowledge You, they are abandoned to their foolish thinking and allowed to do things that should never be done. You do not abandon us who love You so I pray this statue, full of foolish symbolism, is not allowed to remain standing. I pray You will remove it in a way that is CLEAR to ALL. I ask this and so much more in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen
Thank you for being boots on the ground in this fight for life!
Heavenly Father, I come to you to ask for deliverance of the demons that have control over us, deliver us in Jesus name I pray. Father also to take the evil and demonic statues and ideology of what Satan is poisoning our children and the world with. Satan knows he has a short time here Lord, and he only has little power you allow him. Father open everyone’s eyes to see and understand what your word has warned and given us to know of the signs before Jesus comes for His church. Father I pray the world will be ready to go to your kingdom that where there is no hate, pain, sorrow, worry, or poverty. Where there is always joy, love, freedom, kindness, nor worry, no despair, no depression, no sickness. I pray everyone just would focus on your words, your laws and trust you. They would know and see, how you wanted only the best for us all. You love us, Satan hates us, he hates the one thing you cherish the most and that is your creation, Us!!! All of us, not one of us is more important to you than the other, only the ones who don’t believe in you and that are lost are the ones you hold the closest to you, all they have to do is accept Jesus as their Lord and saviour who died for all and rose from his grave, and lives today within us and all around us. He never leaves us or forsakes us. Father help us with your mighty holy spirit to come and redeem us and take these satanic statues down and protect the unborn and to protect all the innocent, all the children Lord all around the world, whom is so precious to you and to us Lord. Also, Heavenly Father protect all who are fighting for your truths and laws, this is your world. You are it’s creator, not Satan or any other. Just you alone, you are the alpha and omega. The greatest, amazing, almighty, ever loving, compassionate, holy, only one and true God, who is absolutely Good to us always. You Always get me through every trial in my life and I am so grateful I have you and know you through your son Jesus Christ!!! I pray everyone would know that and feel that. All the signs you told us are here, and now we patiently wait for you Jesus, I pray everyone knows you and are ready. Satan’s time is short here. Choose Jesus!!! So you will see God’s kingdom, way better than you will ever have here!!! Hell, is dark, no light. Hell is constantly torment, anguish, loneliness, constant pain, burning flames, screams of the tormented. Who would want that? The Devil hates us all, because God loves us and we are God’s creation in His image. Father I give you all the praise and glory for all you do for us all and still are, I pray this all for my family, my friends, my neighbors, and for the whole world. I thank you Heavenly Father and your will, will be done in Jesus name I pray! Amen 🙏 😊😇
Very thorough and encouraging prayer to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We declare your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven in the mighty name of Jesus
L-rd G-d, In Your Supernatural power remove and destroy that evil satanic stature from the face of the earth in Yeshua’s Mighty Name. I bring it before into the Courts of Heaven.
In Jesus Name! I pray against the demonic forces’ I pray that this statue will be torn down without human hands touching it! 🙏
Lord, I agree with these prayers. Destroy both monuments with power from above. Lord, raise up godly artists to display Your glory, truth and majesty in the city gates. Moreover, and more importantly, let the power of God fall upon New York City and New York state, and the whole country so that people will fall on their knees and declare, “The Lord, He is God.” Amen.
I prayed and will continue to!!!! Thank you so very much for your prayers and faithfulness!!!!!
Had Hoped the Evil Of Judge Ginsberg had died with her
But just goes on forever
Our Father which art in Heaven, HALLOWED be Your name. Your Kingdom come Your will be done in earth as it is in Heaven….
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil!! For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever! AMEN. And that we decree!
“Who” art in Heaven
Lord, deliver us from evil.
Thank you for going there, for praying/decreeing/renouncing. I touch and agree in Jesus name and blood. Thank you for sharing this with us all! God bless you.
Father, In Jesus’ Name, we command cancel the powers of this statue and close every open portal. We plead the blood of Jesus over the grounds where this has been erected. We pray God that you will destroy these multiple statues and demolish them into pieces, as you did to Dagon in the scriptures. We bind the activity and authority of every demonic spirit being summoned by this idol and render then powerless. Your word says that idols You will utterly abolish. We ask that you would send angelic, warring angels to bind and cast out the demonic principalities over the state of NY into the pit of hell, in Jesus’ mighty name. Break this counterfeit power now. We praise you God. You are the true and living God!! Let Salvation and Repentance come to NY city. Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered.
We pray all of this in Jesus’ Mighty Name,
Yes, and Amen!
