I Prayed have prayed
Father, we thank you for this ban! We pray that you would continue to keep biological men out of women's sports.
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Although this ruling is not perfect, it is a step in the right direction and exactly what intercessors have been praying for.  A Washington Post/University of Maryland survey found 55% of Americans oppose biological males competing as girls in high school; 58% oppose it at the college level; 49% oppose it at the youth level. Interestingly, only 30% support bio males competing against females at every level of competition. Another 17% have no opinion.

From National Review. The international swimming federation FINA announced a new policy on Sunday to ban biologically male athletes who have gone through male puberty from competing in women’s competitions.

Visit your state page to pray.


To qualify for women’s competitions, the swimmers must either have never gone through male puberty or had male puberty suppressed at the stage when physical changes begin to appear or before the age of 12, whichever occurred later, according to the policy.

The athletes also have to prove that they have continuously suppressed their testosterone levels since that time.

“We have to protect the rights of our athletes to compete, but we also have to protect competitive fairness at our events, especially the women’s category at FINA competitions,” FINA president Husain al-Musallam said in statement.

The policy also includes proposals for an additional open competition category. FINA is set to form a new working group that will spend six months studying the most effective ways to set up the new category….

More than 70 percent of members endorsed the policy, which will take effect Monday….

I decree exposure of this antichrist sexuality and false identity agenga and loose the might men of valor courage for the ekklesia to speak out the truth of scripture. I loose this over all the pastors and leaders of churches across America and also a spirit of conviction to preach what Jesus directs. I decree the church is stepping out to take back the culture war. The woke is going broke due to bycotts to institutions aligned with antichrist values such as Walmart, Amazon and others. Great backlash is and will continue to come to companies and banks aligned with antichrist agendas. We are waring from a place of victory. “It is finished.”

Some of these men were near the bottom of their sport when they competed against other men. So then they miraculously said they always felt like a woman, and after a short period of time🤔 they are competing as women and winning almost every event! I am so very glad that men can no longer compete as women! FATHER GOD please help those that are confused. Let them find salvation, peace, and deliverance in YOU in JESUS NAME! Amen!

I am in favor of the ban. I highly respect all those who participated in fighting to keep real men participating in male sports and real women participating in the female sports. Men and women alike SHOULD have their own gender participating respectfully with their own legal gender identity. If a person wants to mar the fact that they are wonderfully made and altar their appearance, I say be honest and darn right frank that the confusion is in your own hearts and head. Just simply say this is what I want and choose to do and be. To become role models and pervert the innocent minds of young people when your own mind is clouded and unclear is a travesty. My heart is filled with much compassion for these people that are struggling in their blood and I am filled with Adoring Gratitude that the Lord, through His Word and by His Spirit has shown to me the spirit of our enemy behind this work of destruction. Prayerfully and Lovingly I war and fight Spiritually for them. Many will be delivered and come into the Truth but many will go into the depths of madness and insanity where satan is leading them to, unbeknownst to them. May the Presence of our Christ chase them all the days of their lives that they may find their place in the Body of Christ.
