I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would eliminate pornography from the public sphere and the culture in our nation. We thank You for this first step, God, and we ask that You would ensure Pornhub is blocked and banned on all platforms.

We highlight this good news: a nonprofit advocated for nearly three years and finally Instagram has disabled Pornhub’s account.  This is a small step in the right direction.

From CBN News. A group that fights against sexual exploitation is applauding Instagram for removing PornHub from its platform after advocating for its removal for nearly three years.

Get prayer updates from IFA.

 

“Instagram is courageously choosing to stop partnering with Pornhub and it is time for all corporate entities to follow its example,” said Dawn Hawkins, CEO of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE). …

“Instagram was right to remove Pornhub from its platform for violating its community standards given the increasing reports of Pornhub hosting child sexual abuse material, sex trafficking, filmed rape, and non-consensual videos and images,” Hawkins said. …

Although Pornhub’s Instagram page did not share pornographic content, it did promote pornography and encourage followers to have a “career” in the industry.

Instagram served as a distribution partner with this criminal enterprise, helping to push millions to their website, including children,” Hawkins explained. “We are grateful that Instagram has heard the voices of sexual abuse survivors who have been personally harmed by Pornhub’s insatiable appetite for profit.”

As CBN News has reported, Visa, Mastercard, and other major companies have already cut ties with Pornhub. …

This is long overdue. As the article correctly states, it’s a first step in the right direction. The work is ongoing. It must be fought with God’s guidance, God’s armor and non-stop involvement of everyday citizens. This is a very tough battle with Satan fighting back in every manner possible.
The body of Christ must be involved and offer help through churches that are willing to tackle this. Some will not because they are weak & too woke – and they are ready to spot.
This battle MUST also be fought tirelessly at the legislative level…. because pornography became a huge problem through government “green lighting”. Sadly, many compromised gov’t officials are apathetic about the problem because they use porn personally and they benefit from reelection through megabucks given to them by the porn industry through “false front organizations”. (think CA – which turns a blind eye because of the millions in tax revenues they receive through this horrible industry)
Don’t be afraid to get involved. There are great organizations fighting against this hell driven industry (Exodus Cry is one of them)

This is great news! Why enable this crap ya know. The online presence since the invention of the internet has only made matters worse with this Child, Human Sex Trafficking crap and sometimes really that’s what needs to be done is taking on the sources not necessarily the problem itself because with no source or money or whatever then what. This makes a lot of since. Love the article very encouraging.

Thank You God for knowing all and being so many different thing. You are provider, miracle work, and the source of truth and solutions. Thank you so much Lord and may your will be done as you know past, present, future and you know use better then we do. You are creator after all. We are so blessed thank you Father. In Jesus name I pray Amen.

God bless.

Great news. Human trafficking and sexual exploitation go back at least as far back as Joseph’s abduction and the mother pimping out her daughter in exchange for John’s head.
And, rape went up 300% in 1957 after a bunny ears magazine was published. I believe too many in the Church were silently affected, no doubt to slow down the revival.
Father, You created us in Your image, yet You state that it would be better for a millstone to be tied around a person and that person be cast in to the sea rather than they snare a child (adolescent and adult, too). That tells me how You feel about porn. So, now, Father, come against the sexual immorality strongholds and disappear them. Forgive my own previous involvement in pornography and save every single person I’ve ever looked at. I do not want to see them on the left side the Great White Throne and asks me why I didn’t do anything. Save them, Father. As for the abductors, traffickers, exploiters and murderers, start doling out Your millstones, yet, I must (don’t really want to) pray that You save them, too.

HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!

For anyone interested in more information about stopping sex trafficking, take a look at the Victor Marx website. This ministry (All Things Possible) rescues children and women and provides follow-up care, while also going after the predators and bringing them to justice. They also are on the watch for online predators and young women who are at risk of abuse.
Because of his own traumatic childhood, he is able to relate and communicate the freedom and healing in Christ Jesus.

Lord we are grateful for your working in and through this situation. I pray for each and every person associated with this site, that they would be brought to You and down on their knees. Lord send Your Word to those who are working in this area and convict them of the harm they’re inflicting on others. Jesus, You are the only answer. It should not take 3 years to stop something this harmful, but You know us and You know that the heart of man is deceitful. Please Lord remove the veil, open their eyes and cause them to repent. This evil perpetrated against children especially is unthinkable. Bring it out into the light wherever it is occurring on our planet and bring Your people to stand in the gap. We need a great awakening! Thank you for exposing this point hub and for shutting it down! Make people aware, may it be headline news throughout our country. So many are being hurt and so many households are vaguely aware if it exists. I pray against our enemies plan to kill, steal and destroy! In the precious name of Jesus the Christ I pray.

Good to hear, this article. But sadly, it represents only a drop in the proverbial bucket… Jesus will come back for a Church without spot or wrinkle, a Church he has purged! Many will say on their judgment day, Lord, Lord… (see Mt. 7:22) But He will say, depart from me, I never knew you…
Heavenly Father, may we your body- the Church, judge ourselves so that we avoid your righteous judgment, in Jesus’ name, Amen!

Father thank You for exposing this to us. We repent and in Jesus mighty name we bind the spirit of jezebel, no longer able to manipulate, blind and seduce men or women. In Jesus name we ask for the protection of our children. Lord let Your love be known to those who have fallen prey and Your justice confront those that have preyed upon the innocent.
Thank You for exposing this we come before You and humbly ask that You forgive us and heal this nation and thank You for salvation in Jesus name. Amen.

True Merciful One! Thank you Jesus for working on Instagram leaders to cut ties with Pornhub…thank you for exposing the poison. Forgive us Christians, some of us, for not even knowing Pornhub existed, or I really mean to say thank you for Your protection of our homes, minds, eyes, marriages, families…for shielding us from the danger and debauchery of it….Poppa God now that we know, in Jesus name we bind the ancient spirits of baal, immorality, idolatry and any other unholy thing – You know all of them by name-and loose Your Holy Spirit of love, power, sound mind, give faith to truth the truth of Your gospel, the real power of salvation, of healing, of restoration and redemption. Of Poppa God, please restore the years the locusts have eaten in our country, for Your names sake Jesus. You made us free and brave, help us always remember and acknowledge that truth.
