I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we pray for the education system. Would you you be the center of our country. God, would what is being taught in our schools not create division due to race, but would unify all children to know you.

Critical race theory (CRT) and education in the United States as a whole is shaping up to be a huge campaign issue for 2022 and 2024. And that’s terrible news for Democrats. Recent polling backs up this perspective.

Exhibit A: A recent Harvard CAPS/Harris poll found 61 percent of registered voters said children should not be taught that America is “structurally racist.”

Exhibit B: A YouGov-Economist poll says almost 6-in-10 American voters have an unfavorable view of critical race theory.

But hold on a minute: Many in traditional media, along with representatives of teacher unions, have said that CRT is not being taught in American schools; that it is a myth similar to the current Republicans-want-to-defund-the-police kind of myth. Here’s Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, on July 6:

Fast forward to just days later, and now we’re being told by Weingarten not only that CRT is being taught in schools, but also that millions of dollars have been lined up to fight inevitable legal battles to ensure it stays:

So, while we focus on CRT in our schools and teach children as young as five years old to see others through a racial prism, to judge others by the color of one’s skin rather than the content of their character (which would only serve to divide this country further for generations to come), we’ll continue to lag behind the rest of the world in the key areas of reading, math and science, where the U.S. ranks 25th. . . .

Know this: Parents aren’t taking this anymore. Look at school board recall efforts, for example; it’s a huge indicator of how parents are responding to CRT being taught in their children’s schools.

Already, there have been more than 50 school board recall efforts this year — and we’re barely halfway through 2021.

For comparison, 10 years ago, there were 21 such recall efforts for the entire year. In 2019, there were 20. This year, we’re on pace perhaps to eclipse five times that number, with CRT being the primary driver.

From a political perspective, Democrats should be horrified. Despite education policy being an afterthought in at least the past seven presidential elections, it certainly will be a top issue for the foreseeable future.

Couple that with rising inflation, skyrocketing violent crime and a border that is anything but secure, and it’s difficult to see what the Blue Team will point to as positives for their campaigns in 2022 and eventually in 2024.

Consequently, we’re looking at the overwhelming possibility that Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will be retired as House speaker if from Congress altogether. We’re also looking at the 50-50 Senate flipping back to the GOP, thereby rendering President Biden or Vice President Harris (or whomever the next Democratic presidential nominee will be) weak and helpless going into 2024.

Critical race theory is coming to a school near you. The teacher unions are insisting on it. It also has the full backing of the Biden administration.

The disconnect with parents is profoundly stunning — and politically suicidal.

My husband and I have been blessed to be able to homeschool our children over the past 7 years. We live in a small community and have never been involved in the local school. I do know several teachers and students who are believers. I do not know however how to go about this concern. I care very much about our community and in honoring God. Where is my place? What questions do I need to ask to understand the lie and the truth. Praying for our community schools! Thank you for your help!

Lord, please give us parents Your wisdom, strength and courage to stand against the wiles of the devil, as we put on Your whole armor. Help us and the Teachers who know You, to stand strong in You and in the power of Your might, according to Your word in Ephesians 6:10, that we can all be those lights in this ever-increasingly dark world. Our children, Your children need You Lord, and we know You love them much more than we do. So, we call upon You to cover them in Your precious blood; protect them from all evil. We speak directly to the principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, spiritual wickedness in high places, and command you to stand DOWN in Jesus’ name. Come DOWN from your place of illegitimate authority! The Lord has declared in Isaiah 54:13 that all our children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be their peace. We come against this spirit of deception and division, anger and hate, in the name of Yeshua, the Lord Jesus Christ. Lord, give us discernment now, to identify the root cause of this CRT. We come against all these spirits of hate and we cast you out of our school system, curricula, our nation and the world, in Jesus’ name! Pour out Your love, Father, and faith in Your Son, to counter-attack these fiery darts of the enemy, as we declare by Your Holy Spirit, that no weapon formed against our children shall prosper. In the name of Jesus, we condemn Critical Race Theory in all its hidden forms and agendas, and render you useless against the Word of God that holds all things together in the universe in its proper place. CRT you are out of position, out of divine order and you WILL NOT stand. We pronounce judgment against you by the Word of God who judges all things, and in accordance with 2 Corinthians 10:5, we pull you DOWN! in Jesus’ name, for you will NOT continue to exalt yourself against the knowledge of God. Only God’s knowledge will prevail. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but His word shall not pass away. So every word of God spoken against Critical Race Theory, False “Equity” and all its forms, shall prevail forever. Father, thank You for giving us Your power, word and authority over these evils, that nothing by any means shall hurt us and our children. We pray this critical prayer in Your Son Yeshua, our Lord Jesus’ name. Amen and Amen!

To show you how very dangerous and controlling that CRT is, just today, a top PTA official was speaking to a group of people and said, any parent , not wanting CRT taught, “LET THEM DIE”!!! Parents, grandparents, stand up to your school boards, the teachers union and any teacher that is teaching, Critical Race Theory!! Don’t allow this to be taught to your children! It is HATE, and RACISM, and Marxism, on steroids! It will change your children, forever! That is NOT hyperbole, it is the truth! Would someone tell me, what kind of person, a PTA OFFICIAL, would say that?? This is way past over the top!! It’s insane and EVIL!! America…..WAKE UP, NOW!!

We are being attacked on so many fronts . . . There will be terrible times in the last days . . . Satan has us busy chasing our tails. We need to look to God first, he will give each one of us the tasks He wants us to accomplish. Not one of us can fight every front. Together we can! It requires listening and promptly obeying the Holy Spirit. Dear Lord, please have mercy on us. Direct each of us, help us to hear your still small voice and obey. Oh, God You know! I ask You to reveal Yourself to the NEA leaders, bring them to their knees! Bring salvation to each door. Give each of us, who are called by Your Name, what we need to survive the onslaught of non-Godly people! Give us strength that we didn’t know we have! From the school boards to the polls and beyond. This has been coming for a long time, help us to fight back in Your power and might. In the precious name of Jesus, I ask.

In Florida, though Governor DeSantis, declared CRT to be prohibited in the schools ,some counties are teaching it under the name” equity”. This is dangerous teaching, and must be stopped.

No comments yet? Where are all the parents of school age children? Their voices must be heard, IF they have the courage to DO the best for their children, based on God’s Word “train up a child in the way he(she) should go, and when he(she) is grown, he(she) will not depart from it.”
If parents are not examples of ” effective change” how will children see what to do as they face opposition to their Faith, the Truth? Will these children hear parents say, ” That’s wrong” but “nothing can be done about it”…? My heart breaks, Lord, for what breaks Yours! Father God, open blinded eyes, deaf ears, and closed minds…. and raise up a holy (set apart) army of emboldened parents AND teachers who will Just Say NO to CRT, and every other untruth that is being relentlessly pushed upon Your previous children!
Thank You, Jesus, for, in faith, I believe You will hear the prayers of even 2 prayer-warriors who agree on this. Thank You for being unchanging in this ever-changing world. I love You,& I trust You are Faithful and True !

    Parents are fighting back and standing up at school board meetings as evidenced by the number of school boards being recalled. However, the school boards are ignoring parents and now even limiting comments. The schools system and teachers unions are plowing ahead with their plans. Lord, we pray for the parents and teachers who are standing up to this horrid curriculum. Help them and all of us to save our children for this false deadly theory,

July 15, 2021

Every parent, no matter how busy, needs to attend school board meetings in order to push against the teachings of CRT. Make it a family affair with grandparents, aunts, uncles. Make your voices loud and clear and remind them that “recalls” are an option if they refuse to hear you.
