I Prayed have prayed
Lord God, block and stymie the work of the Satanic Temple. Everywhere they are, establish a stronger Church, more Christ-centered intercession, more children knowing Jesus, more prayer to You, more decisions for life, and advance Your Will and Your ways.

The Satanic Temple has been in the news quite often lately, but what exactly is it? Does the organization truly see itself as a religion in the same vein as Christianity, Judaism, or Islam? Do they offer sacrifices to Satan and commune with demons? Do they wear dark robes and chant in other languages?

While The Satanic Temple (TST) is not quite what people expect when they hear the name, it is most certainly a dangerous force of evil in America.

TST was founded in 2013 by Lucien Greaves and Malcolm Jarry, although Greaves seems to get most of the credit. Greaves was a neuroscience student at Harvard and a sharp-minded activist, eventually channeling his beliefs into the core values of TST.

On TST’s website, they state that their mission is to “encourage benevolence and empathy, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense, oppose injustice, and undertake noble pursuits.” To accomplish this mission, they follow seven fundamental tenets: act with compassion and empathy, fight for justice, respect bodily autonomy, respect others’ freedoms, conform to modern science, rectify personal mistakes, and place compassion and wisdom over the written or spoken word. This mission and these tenets are extensions of Greaves’ own beliefs, as he states that “the broader goal of the Satanic Temple in general is to advocate for all those who are unjustly maligned, demonized, or marginalized—victimized by conspiracy theorists and dogmatic supernaturalists.”

But what about Satan? Greaves insists that TST does not recognize or believe in Satan or the supernatural. Rather they follow Satan as he was portrayed in classic literature—as an agent of chaos and rebellion. But this does not mean TST is not religious. They advocate for purely “religious” rights in key areas of concern for intercessors—education, religious freedom, and abortion.

Greaves himself has referred to his organization as “a ‘poison pill’ in the Church/State debate.” He further states, “Satanists, asserting their rights and privileges upon public affairs, could serve as a poignant reminder that such privileges are for everybody, and can be used to serve an agenda beyond the current narrow understanding of what ‘the’ religious agenda is.” In other words, TST presses for religious rights in order to achieve separation of church and state and rights for no religions.

In practice, however, TST is anti-Christian. As IFA has covered previously, TST sponsors After-School Satan Clubs in schools across the country. The words of June Everett, Campaign Manager for the After-School Satan Club, are telling. She explains that the sole purpose of every After-School Satan Club is to be an alternative to Christian programs like the Good News Club. Everett only seeks to install these clubs in schools with religious clubs.

In other words, the sole goal of the After-School Satan Club is to combat Christianity. It is not about teaching children corrupted morals, it is about teaching them corrupted morals instead of Christian morals, seemingly with an end of removing religion from the public square.

TST sued the Boston City Council in Massachusetts for the right to “pray” at city council meetings. The council denied their request to pray, so they sued, arguing this denial is unconstitutional. Their legal tactics exemplify their mission to cause chaos and rebellion. In fact, the judge rebuked them for bad faith in purposely seeking depositions when witnesses are not available.

TST Idaho will be holding a National Day of Prayer event on May 5, 2022, in the Rotunda of the Idaho State Capitol building: “Join Us for Satanic Prayer, Unbaptisms, and Special Guest Speakers; May 5th 2022 10 am – 2 pm​ on the Second Floor Rotunda of the Idaho State Capital Building.”

TST is also actively pro-abortion. One of TST’s core tenets is bodily autonomy – they fight for abortion as a religious right. TST sued Texas, arguing the heartbeat law violates their “right to a religious accommodation of its members to engage in the abortion ritual under the Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act.” A spokesperson said, “The Temple will work tirelessly to do our best to protect the religious rights of members who want to engage in TST’s abortion ritual.”

TST is deceived and unknowingly misguided and are led to take stands against the ways of God. They  aggressively push for visibility and “rights” in civic life. Intercessors need to pray about these legal efforts to disrupt and destroy what religious freedom means in America.

Prayer Points:

Pray that the National Day of Prayer event in Idaho will come to nothing. Pray that Idaho intercessors will pray over the Rotunda in advance of the proposed event. Pray that no one would attend and no harm would be allowed by God through their activity.

Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. (1 Jn 3:8)

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. (Mk 11:24)

Pray in the opposite spirit of their goal of chaos. Pray that godly, biblical, constitutional order would result from their actions, whether in education, abortion, or prayer at civic meetings.

Drive out a scoffer, and strife will go out, and quarreling and abuse will cease. (Prv 22:10)

For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. (Jas 3:16-18)

Pray in the opposite spirit of their goal of rebellion. Pray for school officials, city council members, judges, among others, to understand their authority and exercise it in the public good. Pray that the TST would be thwarted in their disruptive, evil efforts.

An evil man seeks only rebellion, and a cruel messenger will be sent against him. (Prv 17:11)

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. (Rom 13:1-2)

TST targets schools, prayer at civic meetings, pro-life laws, and the National Day of Prayer. Intercessors, we can battle them effectively.  For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ (1 Cor 10:4-5). Please pray for the real National Day of Prayer–pray for all the events across the country and the U.S. Territories. Tune in to the national event. For more information, visit the National Day of Prayer website. Pray into their theme, “Exalt the Lord who has established us” (Colossians 2:6-7).

Satanists can declare they do t worship Satan but we know he is the father of lies, so his followers are also liars, blasphemers, authors of chaos and destruction of anything Christian. A dangerous group!

    Jesus, Truth Giver, said “Satan came to steal, destroy, and kill.” We are not deceived by the mockery of their stated values, which is false, for “they are of their father, the devil” – “the father of lies.” Their purposes are as Jesus said. Their actual creed is to steal, lie, deceive, and tear down.

My prayer is that there is a multitude of Believers who will also convene together for the National Day of Prayer at the Idaho State Capitol. We just need to stand in our authority in the Name of Jesus, pray in the Holy Spirit and take the land as ours.

It’s time for action Saints as demonstrated in the Book of Acts.

I will be adding my prayer in the Spirit since I live in another state but will be participating in the National Day of Prayer.

A few years ago, i read an article–I think it was written by them–about how they didn’t really believe in Satan, or Christ, for that matter, but were actually communists trying to conduct culture war by attacking the root of Western, Judeo-Christian culture, Christianity.

John 8:44 — You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. New International Version (NIV)

Jesus you can make a way where there seems to be No way. I know, I know with you ALL Things are possible! Jesus go before me fill my voice with the AUTHORITY you gave us to defeat Satan and all of His Lies and promotions of his agendas. Jesus we bind this spirit that is trying to descend upon us, block their evil ways of deception. Jesus we ask in your precious name to give all who are pray and fighting against this darkness that is trying to force their way into schools calling it a religious act. We ask for your protection over this school that the school board, judges will not accept this act of darkness. My Hope, Faith is in you Lord as this battle is fought we ask in your name. We ask in your name Jesus help this school and all of the other to throw off this unrighteous behavior. Satan you have no power no control when we speak Jesus name and say Jesus Blood paid it all when we go before the Father and ask Him to Intercede for this school to and judges to have the Power to say NO, NO this will not happen. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus there is just something about that Name; we have privileged positions you said to exercise in your Kingdom. We put on the Armor of God and stand in our worship to you, all will be seen in the Light OF Gods Glory, you are The Light that will shine in the Darkness.

‘The Christian in Complete Armour’ written in 1655 but still in print gives a biblical expose of Satan and his tactics, as well as how to fight and win the battle against this ancient foe.

‘War on the Saints’ by Jessie Penn Lewis is another key book on spiritual warfare.

In the power and authority of JESUS Christ, we pull down this stronghold of lies and deception of this organization, and we strip apart its web that is trying to capture the minds of our children, teachers and spiritually ungrounded parents. We call it impotent and dissolved in Jesus name. And we call these children up higher into their God given purpose. We call this GENZ generation into their divine destiny of revealing Christ IN THEM!

Yes we exalt you Lord, who has established us who are called out of darkness to be an ambassador to destroy the works of satan.. Jesus Christ has supremacy over all counterfeit assignments to deceive and twist the ways of justice.
Let Blinders over those seeking truth be released, in Jesus Christ’s name.
LORD God almighty, the Living God of all creation, release dreams or visions to shake uncertainty through those being deceived in this TST organization, Advance your Kingdom with rescue workers to have patience to deprogram those set free, with your Words of truth,, in Jesus’ name. Bind all retaliation in Jesus’ power to restore all breeches from those caught in this snare of crafty deceptive humanism, in Jesus’ name.

Abba Father, we praise you for the cross of Christ our Savior and His shed blood that we may enter into Your throne room! Forgive us our sins, omission and commission, our failures to remain faithful to You and Your Word.
Psalm 138:2 ESV
I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.
Proverbs 12:5-7 ESV
The thoughts of the righteous are just; the counsels of the wicked are deceitful. [6] The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, but the mouth of the upright delivers them. [7] The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous will stand.
Father, we pray for Lucien Greaves, Malcolm Jarry, and June Everette to hear the still small voice of Holy Spirit! May they encounter You Abba through the Blood of the Lamb! May they come to understand the True Sacrifice and Life Eternal! May their encounter with You transform them to be instruments of righteousness for Your Kingdom and Glory! All glory to King Yeshua!

I see the Lord cleaning house. We must fight! Contend! Do battle! It is time to for the faith. God’s word is under attack! We must press in in Jesus name amen!

J. Sparks
April 30, 2022

Been on that side many years ago.
So I can tell you truth about it.
No one in the TST, nor any of it’s leadership, are deceived or unknowingly misguided. Those that belong knowingly choose to belong and willingly take stands against God.
Granted, the TST of my youth was much more secretive than they are today, but they do worship the evil one because they have (as the Spokesperson made clear)they will: “The Temple will work tirelessly to do our best to protect the religious rights of members who want to engage in TST’s abortion ritual.”
Trust me when I tell you if they have one ritual . . . they have more and their sole purpose is to create chaos. That is why they target schools that have Christian clubs.
They stand squarely against God. That is why they have such things as “unbaptism rituals.”
How else is one going to be “unbaptized” if there is not a ritual where one denounces their baptism and swears allegiance to their new “lord.”
Takes mighty prayer to overcome this evil.
Remember what Jesus said when His disciples asked why they could not cast out one man’s son who was possessed.
“These can only be cast out by prayer and fasting.”
So be it with a deceiving entity such as TST is.
So pray hard, friends. Pray as though your children’s lives depend on it.
Because they do.

Because I work closely ministering to those who have come out of satanic ritual abuse situations, I would argue that they’re stated objectives are only the tip of the iceberg. If they call abortion a ritual then they are actively participating in satanic ritual abuse and they’re actively advocating for aborted babies as part of that abuse. As with anything that satan does, he prefers to remain hidden. So, Father, we ask for an outpouring of your spirit over these two who founded the TST and any who followed them either overtly or covertly. We call forth visitations in every coven and every gathering of those who follow satanism whether knowingly or knowingly. We thank you that when you went down into the depths after your crucifixion you took away the keys of death and hell and Satan was utterly defeated. So we declare and decree today his utter defeat and we remove every legal ground that he has to act in this nation. Father forgive those who actively participate in these rituals. Visit them with your love and with your mercy. Cleanse Our Land of this defilement. We lift up the name of Jesus over the TST.
