I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would miraculously shut down this unconstitutional bill in the Senate. Prevent our lawmakers from overriding Your law, God.

Twelve Republicans voted for this bill, and Biden is eager to pass it. We must pray that by God’s grace the House stops this.

From CBS News. The Senate on Wednesday advanced legislation that would provide federal protections for same-sex and interracial marriages, endorsing the measure in a bipartisan vote that moves it closer to becoming law.

Who is praying on the wall?


The 62 to 37 vote was a crucial test of support for the bill, called the Respect for Marriage Act. With the backing of 12 Republican members, the Senate easily cleared the 60-vote procedural hurdle needed to move the legislation forward. Drafters of the plan were optimistic it would garner enough backing from the GOP after a bipartisan group of senators made changes to the bill to protect religious liberty.

The Republicans who voted to advance the bill are:

  • Roy Blunt of Missouri
  • Richard Burr of North Carolina
  • Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia
  • Susan Collins of Maine
  • Joni Ernst of Iowa
  • Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming
  • Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
  • Rob Portman of Ohio
  • Mitt Romney of Utah
  • Dan Sullivan of Alaska
  • Thom Tillis of North Carolina
  • Todd Young of Indiana

Shortly after the five senators involved in negotiations over the legislation unveiled their amendment Monday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer moved to set up Wednesday’s procedural vote. Clearing the 60-vote threshold allows debate to start on the measure and puts the legislation closer to final passage. …

The Respect for Marriage Act repeals the Clinton-era Defense of Marriage Act and safeguards same-sex and interracial marriage by requiring the recognition of valid marriages regardless of “sex, race, ethnicity or national origin.”

Introduced after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade … the bill easily cleared the House in July with support from 47 Republicans. Though several GOP senators initially expressed support for the plan, Schumer agreed to postpone a vote on the legislation until after the midterm elections after some Republicans worried it would endanger religious freedom.

To assuage their concerns, the amendment ensures nonprofit religious organizations will not be required to provide services, facilities or goods for the celebration of a same-sex marriage, and protects religious liberty and conscience protections available under the Constitution and federal law. …

With the amendment, the bill will have to be taken up by the House once again before going to President Biden’s desk for his signature. The White House urged passage of the measure. …

Philippians 4:6-7 This Bible verse tells us God’s ears and heart are always open to hear about anything, big or small, that makes us feel anxious or worried. What may seem like a small matter to someone else may be a big thing to you. God cares and he is listening. Mark 11-22-25- Mountain Moving Prayer / with Faith attached- “These statements were made by Jesus to his disciples when many were questioning his spiritual authority. This is commonly referred to as “mountain moving faith.” This image has been used by Christians throughout the years to keep believing and praying in the face of what seem to be insurmountable obstacles. It points out the extreme necessity of faith in believing that something will happen as a result of our prayers.” “The second statement about forgiving others as an avenue to prayer echoes the statement in the Lord’s prayer about forgiving others as we have been forgiven. This self-examination process is extremely necessary in prayer to prevent the first statement about mountain moving prayer to be used for our own ill thought out purposes.” Let us rejoice on what God is showing us how to pray, we need a mountain shaking prayers to go forth, there is nothing better than God and his words used to beat Satan in the head over this radical Bill. I lift up prayer to the 12 Republicans that are being deceived by what they do Not know or understand how serious this Bill is and what the horrible consequences it can do for America. In Jesus name I call down from Heaven that this Bill is defeated in Jesus Name with a BIG NO! I pray all 12 and the 65 Dems will have an encounter with Jesus and their hearts will changed. “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” This is straight from God, claim these scriptures for the Have Won!! 😃🧎‍♀️🧎‍♀️

When our minds are set on depravity, each new act drops us lower on the scum pole. Perhaps this is why some are bent on calling judgment upon a land consecrated to and covenanted with Creator God YHWH.
Jesus, on the cross You said they didn’t know what they were doing. So, now, Father, loose Your angels across the land to completely devastate and render useless every evil controlling the narrative to erase Your design for marriage, a mystery of You in us and we in You. Cause this plan to fail. And, in faith I bind every word, thought and action leading to this vote and I release national healing and restoration to the USA. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Lord, remove all cobwebs of deception from every congressman’s eyes. Let them see the destruction, anarchy and chaos they are foisting on our country and most of all on children who desperately need a married mother and father to thrive socially, emotionally, financially, intellectually and spiritually. Let the speech and lies of those proposing this be confused and turn to nonsense. Close the lying lips.
Help those standing for truth and the laws of nature and natures God to clearly articulate these truths including the importance of religious freedom. Cause their influence to go far and wide. Use this to bring many to a saving knowledge of Jesus. the Creator God.

Forgive us, Father, for even considering this bill. May we turn to you and cast ourselves on your mercy. Turn the hearts of Congress to you and respect for your law.

America continues to reject God’s order. America continues to compound sin upon sin. I was recently reminded of Deuteronomy 30, where Moses was concluding God’s instructions to Israel. Remember, because of Moses’ sin at Meribah, Joshua would lead the people of Israel into God’s promise. Moses’ time had come to and end.

“The Word” Moses spoke of HAS come. The Word became flesh and took up residence among us, the One and Only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1)

Through His Life, we are privileged to pray into this nation. So, I pray Moses’ words over America. And I choose life, to the Glory of God, for our good, in the Mighty Name of Jesus, in Powerful Holy Spirit Strength. I pray God will continue to bless America.

“The Choice of Life or Death” https://biblehub.com/bsb/deuteronomy/30.htm
11For this commandment I give you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. 12It is not in heaven, that you should need to ask, ‘Who will ascend into heavend to get it for us and proclaim it, that we may obey it?’ 13And it is not beyond the sea, that you should need to ask, ‘Who will cross the sea to get it for us and proclaim it, that we may obey it?’ 14BUT THE WORD IS VERY NEAR YOU; IT IS IN YOUR MOUTH AND IN YOUR HEART, so that you may OBEY IT. 15See, I have set before you today life and goodness, as well as death and disaster. 16For I am commanding you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, statutes, and ordinances, so that you may live and increase, and the LORD your God may bless you in the land that you are entering to possess. 17But if your heart turns away and you do not listen, but are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18I declare to you today that you will surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess. 19I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore choose life, so that you and your descendants may live, 20and that you may love the LORD your God, obey Him, and hold fast to Him. For He is your life, and He will prolong your life in the land that the LORD swore to give to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

Romans 10:8-10 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.

Lord please intervene in this situation and do not allow this ungodly piece of legislation to pass! Although this nation deserves judgment, we beg you for mercy and grace on behalf of the many born again believers who love you and love this once great nation. Please protect all who speak out on behalf of the truth of your Word.
