From CBN News. Former gay atheist, Becket Cook, is best known for trading his successful Hollywood lifestyle for a new identity in Jesus Christ. …

Join others crying out to the Lord day and night.


In 2019, Becket shared about his “Damascus Road” conversion that took him from gay Hollywood elite to devoted Christian 13 years ago. …

In a recent episode of “The Becket Cook Show”, Becket also shares the surprising discovery of a letter his mother wrote to God asking for him to get saved and set free from homosexuality.

“It’s a prayer that all parents and family members who are dealing with someone in the LGBTQ community can glean wisdom from and even use it as a template,” he shared.

In a letter titled “A Prayer for Becket”, his mother asked God to save him, deliver him, and keep His hand of protection on Becket. …

Beckett goes through his mother’s prayer line by line and explains how God answered it.

A Prayer for Becket
Deal aggressively with the enemy. Come against him in the all-powerful name of the Lord Jesus Christ and with the sword of the spirit, the Word of God. “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you (James  4:7).You must worship the Lord your God, and worship Him alone (Luke 4:8). Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is One. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart (Duet 6:4-6).

Be Removed in the All Powerful Name of Jesus Christ
1. Spirit of homosexuality
2. The desire for homosexuality
3. Denial of his heterosexuality
4. Remove all the blocks of the truth

We bind you, Satan, in the name of Jesus. Becket belongs to Christ. 

Beckett went on to share 13 specific points that his mother prayed for him including “a change of heart,” a “deep desire for God,” and “protection against HIV and AIDS.”

The podcast host believes his mother’s specific prayers kept him from contracting AIDS from a partner who was unaware he had the disease. …

“I’m literally living and singing God’s praises. [Her prayers] all came true,” he closed. “There is nothing like a mother’s prayer.”

Please share this powerful testimony of answered prayer with a friend.

Thursday Jan 18, 2024 was the day my son “came out” to my wife and I. I never imagine that my son was having homosexual tendencies or feeling toward other men. This has devastated my wife and I and we ask for pray to leave the gay lifestyle. I didn’t see the “red flags” when he would talk to me concerning a “friend of his” who wanted to be normal. His “friend” who prayed to stop having gay thoughts and feelings. All along the so-called friend was him. He stated that he went to a church and asked God to take it away so I feel deep down inside he doesn’t want to continue. I ask for prayer for the Holy Spirit to convict him and “open” his eyes to this world of debauchery. My son’s name is Luis Daniel and I ask to keep him in your prayers . Thank you

Grandson needs deliverance

March 13, 2023

So thankful for prayer warriors like Beckett’s mom.
Please pray for my son who is entrapped in the gay lifestyle. I pray that the Holy Spirit will work in those around him deliver him from the grip of the devil.

This was so encouraging and a much-needed reminder! My children are not struggling with homosexuality, but they are NOT walking with God. I need to continue in faith to believe God for their deliverance and salvation. Thank you!

Father God, We praise you for your GREAT MERCY. Thank You for Beckett’s Mom. Thank You for honoring her prayers on behalf of her son. Continue to give her freedom to share this testimony. May it encourage others to rise up and know you are the miracle working Abba. You are the Waymaker. Thank You, for Your Word. Mom Cook used decreed it and used it against the enemy for her son. Am grateful for Luke 4:10, which states, “He will give His angels charge concerning You to guard You” and v. 12 “You shall not FORCE A TEST on the Lord Your God.” (NASB) Thank you for making a way for Beckett and others who are wanting to be released from the enemy’s mindset and grip. Again, thank you for Your GREAT MERCY and KINDNESS toward the LGBTQ Community. God, Your Ekklesia loves you. Holy Spirit we continue to pray for salvations, healings, and deliverances. Thank You for having a free hand in this family. Thank You for softening Beckett’s heart with the oil from his Mother’s prayers. Thank You, too, for answered prayer. You are worthy and are exalted. Thank You, for your forgiveness, the cross and the Blood! Jesus, I love you.

Lord, your crown delivered us from wrong thinking. Deliver Becket from this spirit, the lustful desires of homosexual behavior, and stop his denial of being a heterosexual! Cause Becket to desire to have a home life and family of children of his own. Cause the lies of the devil be washed away so there is no argument of what is good and what is evil. What the Son sets free is free indeed. And we thank you and praise you for what you are going to do for Becket. Amen.

Thank you Lord for transforming our children to their true identity in you and thank you Lord for bringing the prodigals home and restoring families to their rightful place in the kingdom of God and we praise you and thank you and the mighty name of Jesus… Amen

January 26, 2023

This is so encouraging! I’m praying for our one daughter living in a lesbian relationship for years now, and her younger sister taking male hormones and rejects all who don’t affirm her. Truly Jesus has shown me that this IS a spiritual battle! Their identity in Christ is the devil’s last attack because we are made in His Image and he hates God.
Pray the prayer of faith! Walk and pray in the authority of Christ that He has given to His children! We declare God’s promises over our children, in Jesus’ mighty name!!
Watch the movie: In His Image for encouragement!❤️

    Wise words, Cathleen, from you and from others here whose loved ones are in bondage and being deceived by the evil one. Healing and freedom are certainly possible with Christ Jesus, and bless you compassionate parents and grandparents who are praying in truth for your precious loved ones. God bless you all.

    Thank you, Cathleen, for suggesting “In His Image.” For those who are interested, the link is: https://inhisimage.movie/. Both your prayers and the movie are very encouraging and sobering.

Let’s not forget praying grandparents. I have been praying for a granddaughter who believes she is in the alphabet soup, for the past 3 years. Binding and loosing on earth as in heaven.
Asking for God to bring Holy Spirit filled people into her circle of influence and remove people He doesn’t want in her life.
Several months ago I felt led to specifically bind the spirits of all sexual perversions and the spirits of mental illnesses.
That has also been a continuing decree.
I think of Elijah when he thought he was the only prophet left and God said, no, there are 7,000 others… I am sure I am not the only intercesor He has put that on the heart of.
Yes and Amen!

The Lord answered my prayers for 2 family members that were on hard drugs and they are saved and living clean lives.
I have other family that are either drawn away by their own ideas or bound by Satanic influence. Claiming The Blood of Jesus over them and The Lord is going to straighten them out too.

    Stacy, you’re not alone. I’m standing with you and your precious daughter. I’ve been standing on behalf of Jonathan, my son for 8 years. He’s no longer acting out sexually, but says he’s only attracted to men. He has stated recently that he’s working on his relationship with God and desires more ministry from me.

    January 26, 2023

    Standing in agreement with you, Stacy, in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ!
