I Prayed have prayed
Father, the Enemy has put his lies into school curricula, and falsehood is presented as "truth." Rise up, O God, and bring truth and righteousness back into the textbooks and curricula.

As Marxism rises up in the name of “social justice,” did you know that publishing companies are actually reprinting school textbooks to rewrite history? For example:

  • Key details are being taken out, and propaganda is being added in.
  • Toxic theories like Critical Race Theory (CRT) are being presented as facts.
  • Our nation’s God-centered history — and the godly beliefs of many of our Founding Fathers — are sometimes removed.
  • Demonic religions are being taught and elevated, while Christianity is mentioned only in a negative light.

Connect with others in your state in prayer.


(Read just one write-up here from CBS News about the Texas Board of Education’s feedback regarding the rewriting of textbooks.)

And yet, our nation was founded upon biblical beliefs. The very reason the Pilgrims came here and colonized these shores was to escape religious persecution and find freedom for their Protestant Christian faith. And although not every part of our history has reflected those biblical values, our nation itself was nonetheless founded upon the core belief that we are “One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

But we are the ekklesia — the governing Body of Christ — and we are called to bind and loose. We can do something about all this in prayer!

Friend, will you pray with me today to bind this propagation of propaganda, and to release — that is, to loose — godly and true alternatives for school curricula?

Let’s pray as follows:

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to You in Jesus’ name.

We praise and thank You that You are the God of truth. Jesus Christ Himself, our Savior, is the very embodiment and personification of Truth. Lord Jesus, You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Thank You, Abba. We praise You for Your righteousness and strength.

Father God, Your word says that Your Holy Spirit is both our Advocate and our Teacher. You Yourself are the Source of all wisdom, and Your Spirit gives us wisdom every day. So Father, we call upon You today specifically because of these things — and because You are LORD of heaven and earth and You rescue the needy when we cry.

We cry out to You for help today. And in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, we pray:

  • that Holy Spirit, our Teacher, would whisper in the ear of those who write and publish school curricula;
  • that You would convict activist publishers and textbook writers of their falsehoods;
  • bring them to repentance for their pushing of evil propaganda;
  • that You show them Jesus, and help them bow the knee to His name, confessing their sins and making Him their Lord and Savior;
  • that Holy Spirit, our Advocate, would fight for us and advocate for us in this matter of school curricula;
  • that You might turn the hearts of kings like water and cause godly truth to be promoted in textbooks again;
  • that You would cause legislatures, governors, school boards, school principals, curriculum committees, and teachers everywhere to rise up and resist the spread of lies in their curricula. Cause them to choose righteous textbooks and materials that teach facts, not propaganda;
  • that You would rid the textbooks of anti-Christian bias and replace that with truth that glorifies Your name.

In the name of Jesus, we bind lies and woke propaganda OFF of our school textbooks and curricula. We bind false teachings AWAY from our schools, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. And in that same mighty name, we LOOSE and RELEASE godly, holy teachings into the schools of the United States of America.

  • We loose textbooks to be printed that will be full of truth.
  • We loose godly, holy WISDOM and discernment of spirits into every person related to the curriculum process.
  • We loose the conviction of the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus into every person whose work relates to curriculum.
  • We loose the plan of salvation itself into our school curricula.
  • We decree that salvation comes from our God, and His salvation is freely preached in our schools in the name of Jesus Christ!

Father God, You are the greatest Teacher of all. We ask that You would rise up, both in Your teaching capacity and in Your power to advocate for us and to change hearts and minds.

  • Let sanity and truth return to our schools and to the materials being taught there.
  • Let Your wisdom from above fill our schools and the minds of teachers and students this year.
  • Let people reject falsehoods and clearly perceive the difference between truth and error, between the holy and the profane.

Thank You, Abba Father. We give You all the glory and all the praise. Thank You for hearing and answering our prayer.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

Friend, please continue to pray this prayer. But also, go ahead and research what is going on in your state regarding school curricula! And if you find unholy things, don’t hesitate to contact your state representatives, your local school board, and certainly the principal of your child’s school. Encourage them to use true teaching materials, rather than propaganda. Don’t be afraid to use your voice! Your prayers AND your voice do matter.

Christian Publishers like “Christian Liberty Press” are still printing books with Truth about our country and heritage. I’m a teacher and about 13 years ago before schools began the descent into Common Core, all of our old textbooks, and reading series books were thrown away! We were told if we took any of the books home and were caught that we would be arrested as a thief! We were also told that we couldn’t get any of the thrown away books out of the dumpsters or we would be charged as thieves! I didn’t understand then, but I completely understand now! They began changing our textbooks to take out our American heritage and Truth! They are the true censors and book banners! Today education is on the computer in apps like Schoology which has much indoctrination and lies in it. Schools listen to CNN Kids in the mornings which is full of lies! I quit my school in 2021, and before that I refused to listen to CNN Kids in classrooms! I also added Truth into my lessons that had been removed. In history, islam, buddhism, and hinduism did more than teach in our American history books, they attempted to indoctrinate! They all had large chapters while Christianity was a smaller chapter, and written like it was a false religion followed by a few folk! I of course corrected the errors I found, however few other teachers did! I had been advocating for parents to pull their children out of public schools even before then because of the dumbed down education. I homeschooled my 2 children from 6th and 8th grades even as I worked! They are 38 and 35 now and we have no regrets. There are even many more homeschooling organizations to help parents today. Home School Legal Defense is one place to begin. They will help families get started. Liberty Christian Academy in Arlington Heights, Illinois is another resource to help. I found these on my own. Folks, we CANNOT save our government schools! There are only a few decent ones not indoctrinating our kids in each state. Go into the schools! Look at the curriculum! Only a MASS EXODUS FROM OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS, WHICH AFFECTS THEIR FUNDING, MAY CAUSE CHANGE FOR THE BETTER IN THEM! FATHER GOD please direct parents to the best way to educate their children. Help them to find out everything going on in public schools and make an informed decision as to what is best for them and their family! Please raise up affordable private schools and homeschools that are teaching YOUR Truth in JESUS NAME! Amen!
