I Prayed have prayed
Lord, continue to give our president and other government officials wisdom and discernment. We pray that the fear of the Lord in their lives would cause them to shine as a light to the world.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a law on Wednesday that requires corporations to have a minimum number of board members from “underrepresented communities” — as defined by race, gender, sexuality, and other categories of identity.

Newsom signed the new law, AB 979, along with other laws aimed at ending “systemic racism,” including a law establishing a task force to study reparations for slavery. (California never had slavery and was admitted to the Union as a free state.)

The new bill comes on top of existing legislation, signed into law in 2018, requiring that companies have a minimum number of board members who are female, or who at least identify themselves as female.

According to the legislative counsel’s digest, AB 979 requires public companies to have “a minimum of one director from an underrepresented community, as defined.”

It will also “require, no later than the close of the 2022 calendar year, such a corporation with more than 4 but fewer than 9 directors to have a minimum of 2 directors from underrepresented communities, and such a corporation with 9 or more directors to have a minimum of 3 directors from underrepresented communities.”

The text of the law defines a member of an “underrepresented community” as “an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identifies as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.” . . .

Proposition 209 — which is up for repeal by voters this November in Proposition 16 — bans the state from using race as a criterion in hiring, but does not bar legislation requiring companies to implement self-identifying diversity criteria.

Father, touch the hearts of California’s leaders to see the foolishness of their law and the wisdom of your Word. Give them repentance for their wickedness. If they will not repent, replace them. Draw your people there to seek your face and pray with their repentance that they may see your hand of mercy.

We pray blind eyes open, deaf ears hear from the host of heaven as He draws near.

“No more,” says the Almighty. I AM no longer laughing. I WILL loose My fury upon this man who has assumed the mantle of a god who does what he wants, when he wants with none to oppose and be accountable.

They WILL know who redeemed men and requites the land and seasons.

My fury will equal that of Byronic proportions as you stand in awe knowing I, the Almighty, have come against this enemy who thinks he can steal, kill, and destroy with impunity.”

Thus saitheth the Lord God Almighty, Creator of the heavens and the earth.

AMEN AND AMEN

The spirit of deception is rampant and has consumed this man running CA. We bind this principality now by the BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. Please LORD encounter him.
