I Prayed have prayed
Heavenly Father, we thank You for the brave men who originally signed the Declaration of Independence. Now, in these difficult times, we pray that the truths in this impactful document would once color our nation.
Reading Time: 2 minutes

On Constitution Day, we at IFA share this wonderful initiative with you.

Six months ago, we started an initiative to challenge the citizens of this country to read the Declaration of Independence, to learn of the risks taken and sacrifices made by the Signers, and then to sign the online version at www.sign1776.com. The inspiration for this endeavor came from a love of what this country once stood for, and a reaction to what it is quickly becoming. While we have watched this country slip further and further into the socialist abyss, never would I have anticipated the battle it would be to promote education and awareness for the original founding document of the United States. Reddit, Google, and Meta have been sandbagging, shadow banning, or outright blocking our outreach and marketing efforts.

Get involved in state level prayer with IFA.


The Declaration of Independence, drafted amidst the crucible of revolution, stands as a testament to the unwavering belief in the inherent rights of humanity. It eloquently asserts that all individuals are created equal and endowed with unalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Yet, despite its pivotal role in shaping the course of our nation, Big Tech is stopping the spread of the true meaning and relevance of this seminal document.

A few weeks ago, the National Assessment of Educational Progress report card was released, and what it revealed was staggering: only 13% of eighth graders were proficient in History, and only 22% scored that well in Civics.  These dismal figures, which are both marked declines, are not due to a lack of funding, as public spending on K-12 exceeded $840 Billion for FY2021. It is incredibly important to this Republic that the citizens understand the fundamentals of the American system of government. In this regard, our younger generations are failing.

The 4th of July is celebrated as our nation’s birthday, but there is another important date that I would like to point out: August 2nd, 1776, was when most of the Founders signed the document. Due to the war, and the nature of communication and travel during that era, not all signatures happened on that day, with a few happening over the next few months, and possibly one as late as 1781. With that, the precedent was set to attach signatures over time.

I humbly request that you help support our efforts by filming a video of yourself explaining your favorite parts of the Declaration, and then signing the enclosed hard copy replica. Posting this video to social media, with the hashtag #sign1776challenge and referencing www.sign1776.com would be extremely helpful for promoting the initiative.

We have been blessed with both Freedoms and a republic system of government that has survived time while providing methods for us to change who is running the government and what government policies are. It is my hope that you will join me and the tens of thousands of brave patriots who have already honored the original signers of the Declaration of Independence by signing, as we honor those brave souls who originally pledged to each other their Lives, their Fortunes and their sacred Honor.

Intercessor, have you signed?

The teaching and appreciation of our founding documents, our system of government and democracy must be restored to our educational system. Folks in their 50’s and younger are woefully ignorant and inadequately educated!!!!

Father God: Now at this pivotal moment in America we are challenged in our counterforce with attacks on us as Believers in Gods words. Especially what our forefathers brought to the table in 1776- We should be proud and feel the depths in your spirit what The Declaration Really stood for, as it should do NOW. Not only do they this evil agenda want to destroy this scared document, but they have control of how it is presented in schools. BUT: God my prayer are to bring back this tool be brought back under HIS Words bringing freedom of understanding why this document is worthy!! This tool called The Declaration of Independence is a piece of equipment in the arsenal of A Believers Prayer —allowing prayer and truths that should be taught? Why you ask? Its Importance is so People, school children must understand that the Bible has tons to say about Gods people and being involved in civic matters. God we know that any fight that goes forth to stand for Liberty that allows us to minister Gods Word Freely and Openly in schools, in homes, in churches, and in allegiances to this Nation. We are at war with spirit of darkness as they rid our schools etc. of any knowledge of its true existence. “We say we refuse one day, one more month for the Ideologies to place a chokehold on this nation in trying to remove, destroy what this nation was founded upon. We break the work of Socialism, communism, or Marxism from gaining anymore power. “ Galatians- 5:13” AMPC – ”For you, brethren, were [indeed] called to freedom; only [do not let your] freedom be an incentive to your flesh and an opportunity or excuse [for selfishness], but through love you should serve one another.” The devil is the author of bondage and control— People of America your time to fulfill the wake up call is to protect our Liberty called Freedom to do something to protect our God Given Freedom! God make the people of America realize that they have the Authority that you gave all believers to take back the strength Jesus gave us. We declare that the United States of America shall be protected in the name of Jesus🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏 I claim for all children in Jesus Name to have the complete right to learn our Constitution, know what is honest not a falsehood. I ask in Jesus name —-will You Jesus see that the children that are failing civics, failing history and the rules that have not been taught properly -the History that is so important to their growth and learn to honor America. Thank you Jesus.
