I Prayed have prayed
Lord, strengthen these states who are taking a stand against Critical Race Theory.

Editor’s Note: This is partly a praise! As we know that there is a saturation of critical race theory indoctrination happening in schools, businesses, government offices, and more, we are seeing people fight back. That is great news. Here is more about the pushback on CRT happening in states across the nation…

A growing number of states are passing laws prohibiting inculcation of the quasi-Marxist Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools and other government institutions in response to mounting opposition to the ideology.

Governors of Tennessee, Idaho, Arkansas, and Oklahoma have already signed anti-CRT bills. In Texas, Arizona, and Iowa, similar bills are awaiting signatures from their governors.

North Carolina and Utah have passed anti-CRT bills in one legislative chamber so far. Lawmakers in several more states proposed such bills, but haven’t had much success pushing them through. . . .

Proponents of CRT have argued that the theory is “demonstrating how pervasive systemic racism truly is.”

Opponents say the theory’s argument about systemic racism is riddled with fallacies and includes totalitarian elements of coercion and suppression of dissent.

Some of the bills aim to keep CRT out of the classroom, some are limited to bans on training government workers in CRT.

The bills don’t mention CRT specifically, but focus on its tenets, such as banning inculcation of “divisive concepts” that claim, for instance, that “an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously” and that “an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex.” . . .

Some governors, such as Ron DeSantis in Florida and Kristi Noem in South Dakota, haven’t been presented with a CRT ban to sign, but have taken other actions against CRT. Florida is working on a new civics curriculum that will explicitly exclude CRT. It appears the state is also seeing its existing anti-discrimination rules as applicable against CRT. . . .

The Education Department outlined new priority criteria last month for a $5.3 million American History and Civics Education grant, as well as exemplary materials for K-12 educators. The department cited the “1619 Project” and Ibram X. Kendi’s “antiracist idea” —both of which are underpinned by CRT —as leading examples of the kind of content it wants to promote in history and civics classrooms across the country.

The grant offer was part of the reason Tennessee Rep. John Ragan introduced the state’s anti-CRT bill as a “preemptive strike,” he told The Epoch Times. . . .

Many parents first learned about CRT when schools switched to virtual instruction in response to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic last year and parents got a chance to see what their children were learning. Meanwhile, a growing number of teachers and other school staff have blown the whistle on CRT proliferation in their schools.

The language of Ragan’s bill was inspired by the executive order issued last year by President Donald Trump that banned federal agencies, contractors, subcontractors, and grantees from instructing their employees to follow CRT tenets. President Joe Biden has since rescinded the order. . . .

Father God, Thank you for awakening parents, teachers, legislators, and American voters to the dangers of critical race theory and all its evil components being forced on our children. Help us to rise up against these evil indoctrinations. Lord, we plead for you to send your Holy Spirit once again to cleanse our land and save our culture one more time. May we Christ-followers lift up Jesus so that all people will be drawn to His salvation. I pray in agreement with others and in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

Praise God! We need for our state legislatures to continue to stand against the evil in our land. Lord God, please embolden our state governments to stand up against the errant nonsense that is occurring in our nation today.

    And please Yahweh we ask that You multiply this effort to the other state governments, legislators and all involved to this awakening and movement to stop it. Again there have been many other cultures that experienced slavery and overcame without bringing other races entire society, the world and our children into it to blame. They overcame without pulling those around them down demanding retribution and more entitlements rights etc. That is all this is. We declare we are one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all. One blood one color each uniquely created with a purpose accepted, responsible, accountable, fair and law abiding citizens.

      I agree, Marilyn. We desperately God to be in the various problems that plague our nation, and world. Otherwise, nothing will ever change for the better. Several years back, Holy Spirit impressed upon me that the problems in our nation, and world, are beyond human resolution. I believe that we are in the End Times. I also firmly believe that things will be made right upon the return of Jesus Christ. Until then, we need to perservere, and trust in the fact that greater is He that is in us, than he who is in the world. He will protect us, and provide for our needs!

Father, We give thanks that many are awakening to the dangers of CRT teachings, especially in our schools. May you continue to wake up the church, businesses, and any institution who is pushing this agenda. I pray that as a nation we will address issues of prejudice, hatred and bitterness first and foremost within our own hearts by the work of the Holy Spirit and the fruit of Your work in us will produce righteousness and holiness. As believers we know that only Your work in our hearts can bring an end to bitterness and hatred of one another. May we be filled with the fullness of God as we draw near to You. “let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. whoever does not love does not know God, because God is LOVE.” May we walk in LOVE as we look to Jesus, who showed us the way. Protect those who have courageously stood up and will not be silenced for the sake of our children. We can join in prayer if not in the front lines to fight against this indoctrination of our children. God Bless our children and our schools.

Father here is yet another reason to thank You for the plandemic🙌🙌
You are so faithful Father!!! You take what the enemy means for evil, to take down and destroy Your creation, and You use it for good. Not only are You drawing Your children closer to you, using the internet to connect us, through ministries like IFA to inform and mobilize us, but You are even showing those who have yet to know You as Father God and Your power and grace over this nation just what the enemy is doing while we have been busy working to support our families, trusting the local and federal govt. with the education (or should I say indoctrination) of our youth!!! You are sooo good Father!! Keep exposing the truth that we may ALL seek You. In Jesus name🙏🙏🙏

Father, You are Truth! Thank You for these leaders with integrity to speak out and demand that our nation stand on truth. Our nation surely has dark and sad times in her history of which we repent and confess yet it still stands as a place where people come for a better life. This is because of Your hand upon us! Please do not remove Your hand although we have turned away from You. Lord, I don’t ask for all the comforts I have known here in my life . I ask that my grandchildren and descendants will know Jesus as Lord and Savior. May we be free to speak and worship and value this liberty that Jesus won for all people. In Jesus’ name Amen
