I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray for the children in this nation; we ask Your protect over their minds and their thoughts. Give them pure hearts and may they be guided in Your ways.

The 2021 legislative sessions have had a record-breaking number of bills to protect children from transgender laws and executive orders. 82 bills have been introduced in states across the nation. Many of them are banning transgender girls and women from participating in female sports as biological males while other sixteen states have introduced bills that seek to ban the use of puberty blockers and gender-surgery on minors.

The Mississippi Fairness Act passed in March. This bill would ban transgender girls and women from competing on female sports teams. Tennessee, North Dakota, and Montana also have similar legislation in progress. “I never imagined dealing with this, but POTUS left us no choice. One of his first acts was to sign an EO encouraging transgenderism in children. So today, I proudly signed the Mississippi Fairness Act to ensure young girls are not forced to compete against biological males,” stated Governor Tate Reeves of Mississippi.

The record number of state bills comes as the Biden administration has focused on advancing LGBTQ rights. A week ago, the state of Alaska introduced a bill that would require schools to assign athletic teams as male, female, or co-ed. The student’s participation would be based on the sex assigned at birth. Arkansas recently signed into law the “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act.” Governor Asa Hutchinson stated, “This law simply says that female athletes should not have to compete in a sport against a student of the male sex when the sport is designed for women’s competition. As I have stated previously, I agree with the intention of this law. This will help promote and maintain fairness in women’s sporting events.”

Texas Senate Bill 1311, which overwhelming passed the Texas Senate on Tuesday, is now waiting for the House Speaker to release it and bring it to a vote. This measure would protect children and ban gender-surgery, hormone therapy specifically for gender change in minors and remove the medical license of health care providers and physicians who perform these procedures on minors. Please pray for Dade Phelan, Texas Speaker of the House. You can contact him before May 25th to voice your support for this bill to be voted on “without delay.”  dade.phelan@house.texas.gov  (512) 463-1000

The Family Research Council has authored a research analysis on this issue. You can find that document here. The analysis better addresses the psychological and medical issues involved in transgenderism. Another valuable resource from our partner organization is their parents’ guide to the transgender moment in education. It can be found here.

Pray for America’s Leaders Webcast recently featured Arkansas Representative Robin Lundstrum, who introduced a bill prohibiting transgender experimentation on minors. Arkansas became the first state to prohibit transgender experimentation.  To watch the interview, go to IFA’s YouTube Channel here.

This article was very good and very encouraging. I am surprised there are not more comments and prayers. As believers we need to be informed and pray about uncomfortable topics. Father, help us to be engaged in issues that we do not like to even think about. I thank you so much for these state legislators who are fighting for what is right for our children. Give us insight and courage to take whatever steps you show us. I thank you that You hear our cries for our children.

Precious Heavenly Father, We lift up our country and our world, that You formed to You. It is not new that man thinks he knows more than even You. Wherever we go we create huge problems, unless we have submitted to You. I am grateful that You look at the heart! God, many times You changed the mind of kings that did not serve You. You caused a donkey to speak for Balaam! Please God, be with the leaders that are standing up to transgenderism and cause those who are supporting it to become confused about their goals, open their eyes and show them Your truth. We are in very great need of You in our country and world. Bring our country back to it’s founding principles. God only You can through us bring this truth to our dying nation. Give Your people favor and influence in this ungodly time. Give us the words to say! Help Your people to hear Your still small voice and to hold onto You tightly. There is a huge spiritual war going on for the hearts and minds of our nation. We know who wins in the end!
