I Prayed have prayed
Father, we ask that you protect our children from the evils being pushed on them. Put reformer leaders with courage in charge who will remove these things.
Reading Time: 2 minutes

We have to expose and remove this kind of evil in our schools. Let’s pray for leaders who will protect kids, not harm and indoctrinate them.

From The Federalist. Michigan Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer refused to condemn the pervasion of sexually explicit material in taxpayer-funded public schools during a debate on Tuesday, as parents throughout the state continue to fight for greater oversight in education.

Let the IFA community know how to pray for you.


The moment came roughly halfway through the debate between Whitmer and GOP gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon, when both candidates were asked by one of the debate moderators how they would handle the issue of controversial materials in public school libraries. Dixon, who has made parental rights a major focus of her campaign, emphasized that what parents are concerned about is “sexual content” and “pornography” in schools and called out Whitmer for her continued silence on the issue. …

When given the chance to offer a rebuttal to Dixon, who slammed the Democrat governor for refusing to “stand with parents,” Whitmer bizarrely attempted to change the conversation to gun control.

“Do you really think books are more dangerous than guns?” Whitmer asked. “Do you really think that books pose a greater danger to our kids than gun violence does? Mrs. Dixon is trying to distract us.”

Whitmer’s refusal to condemn sexually explicit materials in Michigan schools is unsurprising given that her Department of Education was busted last month for actively encouraging educators to facilitate the sexual transition of schoolchildren behind their parents’ backs. In a series of unearthed slideshows and videos, officials recruited by Michigan’s Education Department are shown instructing teachers on elements of radical gender theory and how to conceal children’s proclaimed “sexual identity” and “pronouns” from their parents. …

She should be ashamed and retract her authority to allow such vile and disgusting books into the hands of already confused and indoctrinated children
It’s almost like she’s following some kind of a cult?????

Father we intercede as one to break this agenda of our adversary Satan. We fortify your hedge of protection around our children with these supplications and th blood of our savior Jesus. This evil lie must stop and Father even use your heavenly hosts to help us defeat these politicians which are corrupting your America. In Jesus mighty name we STAND!!!!

Lord I pray you continue to remove the evilness away from our children and make these people repent and ask for forgiveness thank you for protecting our children and removing anyone that is harming any child in the name of Jesus

The Bible clearly addresses Whitmer’s behavior.

From Matthew 18: 6-7

6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

May Whitmer wake up and repent for the deep harm she is doing to the children in the state of Michigan and beyond. Her own soul is in very grave danger.

I watched this debate, and was stunned at her comparison between pornographic books and guns. What????

I remember when she was elected. Her opponent (whom I voted for) looked weak and tired, while she looked like everybody’s mom, warm and friendly. Who wouldn’t trust someone like that? Hopefully her behavior during the pandemic showed enough of us who she really is–a power-hungry tyrant, who cares nothing for anyone or anything besides herself–not even children!

Lord, deliver us from this evil regime, and help us bring back Your godly, wholesome values. Let Michigan become a light to this whole nation, as they see Your glory and truth shining in us. Amen!

“Do you really think books are more dangerous than guns?” Whitmer asked. “Do you really think that books pose a greater danger to our kids than gun violence does? Mrs. Dixon is trying to distract us.”

No, Ms. Whitmer. It is you who are distracted. You cannot rank lawlessness.

Hebrews 4:12-13 For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before His eyes, and He is the one to whom we are accountable.
2 Corinthians 7:10 Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray You would speak over Gretchen Whitmer and Your Word would penetrate to that place ours are unable…to the division of soul and spirit. I pray as You expose her thoughts and desires, she feels deep sorrow. I pray You will lead Gretchen to repentance and to salvation and she will praise Your Holy Name. I ask this in the Names of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen

    I agree with this prayer but add one more thing….Heavenly Father I pray Psalm 109:8 over Whitmer…’Let her days be few and let another (Tudor Dixon) take her office.’

    When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked man (woman) rules, the people groan.’ Prov 29:2

      Thank you, Maria. I’m from Michigan, and I heartily agree with your scripture and prayer:. Let her days be few and let another (Tudor Dixon) take her place.

Father, I stand against the evil in the schools. I pray Gov. Whitmer may be convicted of sin and seek you and your righteousness through Jesus. Please protect our children and change the school board, school administrators, teachers and the government that they would desire the protection of children.

Whitmer is the one who is trying to distract. The truth is both are harmful to. Children. Just as you would never leave a gun laying around for a child to harm himself or anyone else with,, no one in their right mind would leave sexually explicit books laying around for a child to see. Curiosity wins everytime. One kills or injure physically, the other damages emotionally, spiritually and eventually physically.

Gov Whitmer is a self-proclaimed witch so unfortunately, it is no shock that she would not condemn these books and materials. I pray that she will repent and come to the Lord and if not, that she be brought to justice and removed from any public service ever again.

I pray that our politicians would see that pornography starts with the stimulation of seeing and hearing these words. They are a push towards the feelings that they really do not need at their ages. God did not put sex in our lives to be made dirty or enticing. It was meant to be between one man and one woman as a marriage bed experience. We are to treasure this between ourselves and our husbands. Please Lord take us back to the time when this was beautiful. I bind the devil in taking this to the evil thing it has become. I loose the love that it is supposed to come from. Holy Spirit come and stop this evil. Lord send your Word to stop this. We are to protect and teach our children. Let us teach them the way of the Lord and the Word. I pray that peoples hearts turn to you. Soften their hearts so they will come and give their lives and hearts to you, in Jesus name.

If anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for her to have a huge millstone tied around he neck and thrown into the sea. Matthew 18:6

It is proof that liberals are destroying American and are unashamed about it. It’s all about appeasing their worldly desires at the expense of many liberals that DON’T want their ideals.

Father, people like this Governor who do not defend and protect children need to be removed from office unless they turn from their wicked ways. Lord, we thank You for exposing this Governor’s position. Change her heart, Lord. If she won’t change, then may she be defeated in the election. Thank You. Amen.

Perhaps if Gov. Whitmer comprehended the influence of books upon actions she would see the need to protect our children from this. I would be interested to learn if she would be so defensive of the ” book” if it were the Holy Bible . Her clear interest is yet again, taking away the Constitutional Rights we have as legal citizens of the USA. I pray God open her heart and eyes to His Word of Truth.
