I Prayed have prayed
God we ask You to protect Christian business owners who want to live by biblical values. We pray that religious freedom will be upheld in our courts.

The US Supreme Court announced [last] Tuesday it will take up the case involving a Michigan Christian funeral home’s objection to an employee’s decision to transition to a different sex.

The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) reports the case could bring a definitive ruling on the future rights of faith-based businesses and ministries.

At issue is whether the 1964 federal Civil Rights law that prohibits employment discrimination based on race and religion also applies to sexual orientation and gender identity.


Some states have laws specifically designed to protect homosexual and transgender workers. In the past, federal courts have split in their decisions on whether those who identify as LGBTQ are also provided protection under existing law….

Craig Parshall, general counsel for NRB, said there’s an even bigger issue at stake for religious organizations.

“While the issue that the Supreme Court took up is a narrow one, whether civil rights protections against ‘sex’ discrimination passed in 1964 should include ‘gender identity’ and transgender rights, it will have vast implications for religious groups,” Parshall explained. “There is an increasing movement to force faith-based employers to bend to the newly-minted doctrine that a person’s subjective ideas of how they think of their own gender should always prevail, regardless of the religious conscience of employers, businesses, and ministries.”

Heavenly Father, I ask that your divine justice prevails in this case. Lord, I ask that the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord be upon each Justice of the Supreme Court. That the decision they make in this case honor your name and is made in agreement with your truth, your law and your will for our nation.

Father God,
We thank You that the Supreme Court is going to hear this case. We ask in the mighty name of Jesus that their decision of the outcome of this case will preserve our religious freedom to conduct businesses in accordance with our faith and Biblical principles. Amen.

This is a madness that has been displaying itself in our society. It is demonic. And, it is accompanied by totalitarianism. It absolutely must be prayed against and our leaders must also hear our voices.

    Father, we do pray against the spiritual forces of evil that are seeking to silence your Church. We pray against the deception and the lies that are sweeping our country. We pray for the generation of young people that is led into the kingdom of darkness through the “perfect storm” of the disintegration of families, loss of purpose and confusion of identity and false hope through sexual immorality. But you have promised that the gates of hell cannot prevail against the building of your kingdom. We pray that you would give us wisdom in reaching this generation, that you would pour out your Spirit with power and bring revival among our youth and in our schools. That you would move in ways beyond what we can imagine to rescue lost sheep out of the dominion of darkness and bring them into your kingdom. would you work righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Praying for those involved that God would touch their hearts with His love and love for truth to prevail, (not individual preserved truth but moral and ethical truth this nation was founded upon). We want the freedom that our forefathers fought and died to give us. American freedom given us by our forefathers through our Constitution upheld as they wrote it.
