TEACHERS’ UNIONS PROTEST AND STRIKE–THE SILVER LINING

Lord, as we see the day approaching when America’s education system is on the brink of unprecedented changes help us to encourage each other to keep praying and believing. Give us each perseverance.

On Aug. 4, 2020, Iowa’s teachers refused to submit to Iowa’s state law that requires a 50 per-cent minimum of in-person learning when schools reopen this fall. The teachers sided with their union and told Governor Kim Reynolds they would not comply with the state’s law. In Florida, a teachers’ union sued Governor Ron DeSantis to give control to the local school districts, and not the Governor, the power to decide whether schools can reopen for in-person instruction this fall. The country’s second-largest teachers’ union, the American Federation of Teachers, authorized their state and local chapters to strike if their districts do not take sufficient precautions to protect teachers from contracting the coronavirus. Teachers, in compliance with their unions, across America, are holding protests and refusing to comply with state and their school district’s school-opening policies.

Why were teachers’ unions opposed to reopening our schools? Their opposition surfaced immediately after President Trump in a press conference on July 7, 2020, said, So what we want to do is we want to get our schools open. We want to get them open quickly, beautifully, in the fall. At that moment, everything changed. Union teachers across America raised their voices in opposition to reopening schools and, in many cases, online instruction as well.

Two unions, The National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), represent over three million educators. The combined yearly budgets of the two unions are over $2 billion, of which $400 million is given primarily to the Democrat party and as direct campaign contributions to elect Democrat candidates to offices. Both labor unions promote extreme liberal agendas in public schools and have wielded a tremendous amount of power over American education, a power they have no intention of sharing. Teachers’ unions intend to use the coronavirus outbreak to flex their muscles by initiating strikes and protests.

The reopening of schools as quickly as possible was only one part of President Trump’s economic recovery plan. School unions saw an area where they had power and immediately initiated public demonstrations to keep schools closed. What the unions should have realized is the fluid state of education in America and how near the coronavirus has brought this nation’s education system to the edge of a drastic change.

Intercessors see this as a golden opportunity to pray into the change God wants for education.

Unions survive on the dues their members pay and suffer significantly from any decline in their membership, which may result as parents find alternate options to public school and labor unions’ heavy-handed tactics come to light. The current school reopening crisis could further break the influence the NEA and the AFT hold over America’s educational system. As the unions weaken, believers stand a chance to break their hold over our children and our nation.

Below are some critical points to pray:

  • Teachers’ Unions continue to lose members as a result of a 2018 Supreme Court ruling that gave teachers the option not to join. Since that time, many teachers have opted not to belong to their local union, meaning fewer members and less income for the unions.

Pray teachers will take a stand to refuse to belong to ungodly labor unions.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, many parents have decided to opt out of public schools. They join with families in their community to start

  • small school units called micro-schools, educational pods, cyber schools, or private schools already in existence.

Pray for God’s blessings on all godly schools.

  • Public schools have failed to deliver an across the board good education for students for decades. Since 2000, U.S. students have scored poorly on the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) test. Poor academic standards caused many parents to take their children out of public schools.

Pray for the redemption of education in America.

  • Public sympathy for public school teachers is waning as teachers protest and strike in arguments over school opening dates, virtual learning, and pandemic sanitizing standards. A weary public is not always impressed when protesters hold hand-made signs, Protect our Children. Do Not Return to School, and watch as more extreme protesters wear death masks, carry coffins, guillotines, and tombstones.

Pray for teachers to love God and their students.

  • Homeschooling has taken its toll on public school enrollment, as many parents have found educating their children to be a viable option for public schooling.

Pray for wisdom and understanding for all homeschooling parents.  

  • Parents realize they can educate a child for much less than the public school price tag of $13,000/year/student average. (In some places, the figure is over $20,000 per year.) A child can be educated quite well for $5,200/year/student.

Pray for corruption to be exposed in public school spending.

  • School choice may be closer than we think. President Trump and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos both desire to put in place a school choice option for parents, a plan that would benefit all children poor, middle-class, and affluent. Circumstances could now make that option a reality.

Pray education funding not be given to school districts and corrupt systems of education but flow directly to the parents to make the decisions about where and how to educate their children.

As teachers’ unions lose their favor, and their enrollment is declining, now is the time to unite in prayer and watch God create a new system, void of corruption, that reflects biblical values, honors faith, and is academically sound.

  1. Thank you Father God for all Christian school teachers. Bless them as they bring to the classroom your values.

    Open the eyes of those educators in authority to your will for the education of our children Ephesians 4:4 I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.

    Thank you for saying yes to God’s calling.

  2. Please do not forget to pray for the many Christian teachers that are in the public school system that are trying to make a difference. They deal with students with very hard family situations, students with substance abuse issues, suicidal teens, teen pregnancy and much more. Our daughter is one of those teachers. It is a struggle for them as they stand against this liberal system and their liberal coworkers.

  3. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. All who follow His precepts have good understanding. To Him belongs eternal praise. Ps.111:10. Father, I pray that true fear of You and your righteous ways would fall on our schools, teachers, administrators, students, parents, school boards, and all who impact our schools. We welcome You and Your Word back into our schools. You are the source of all real knowledge. Free our schools from the ungodly lies and agenda of unrighteousness that has paralyzed it for too long. Bless our schools with freedom from fear, political correctness,and socialist agendas;and pour out a spirit of truth, humility, respect for human life, justice, and hope.

    Thank you for the new opportunities to transform schools into centers for truth-speaking and honesty. Bless our god-fearing educational leaders with courage and wisdom to stand strong together and seek the well being of all students.

    We plead the cleansing, healing blood of Jesus over our colleges, universities, high schools, and elementary schools. Thank you, Jesus, for Your great love and patience with us. We lift high Your cross and proclaim Your authority over all our schools. You are making all things new. Hallelujah!

  4. Oh Father ! This problem is far too big for us but not for YOU . So we ask you , please open the eyes of parents who have power and give them the desire and will to see that their children are educated , not just in the three R’s but in the faith and in Christian ideals . Open the younger generations eyes to how greedy and selfish the bulk of society has become since we have let go of Jesus. Put a wholesome fear of you in their hearts . Show them how the world of their good fathers and mothers is collapsing right before their eyes and quiet the rationalizations of the evil one. We ask in Jesus mighty name through whom you accomplished all these things . AMEN

  5. Father God,
    Thank You for creating people with the capacity to think.
    Please work through this virus crisis to offer many more children a first-class education which will include the freedom to acknowledge faith in Jesus Christ, to read and study the Bible, to pray, and to be protected from Planned Parenthood-promoted comprehensive sex ed materials.
    Please forgive the Body of Christ for selfishly retreating from providing affordable, church-funded K-12 schools, thus sacrificing a mission field in their own localities! Please raise up church leaders who will value the lambs in their congregations enough to make some sacrifices. We believe You will provide for churches who sacrifice in order to let the children come to Jesus!
    Please encourage many parents to trust You to help them navigate homeschooling or education pods or other creative approaches to training their children.
    We trust in Jesus our Teacher,
    Amen.

  6. I am a public school teacher who is also a member of Christian Educators Association International. We have two wings of our organization, one is to protect educators with liabiity insurance and job protection so they don’t have to belong to the unions. They also have a ministry wing which provides encouragement through audio daily devotionals, opportunities for educators to fellowship in a large gathering or a small gathering at their local schools. They offer many resources how to share their faith legally, provide professional development, leadership weekends and are available for teacher inquiries for any kind of issue they may need a Christian World View on their campus. I see the need to make information about this organization available to Christian educators nationwide. I am doing my part here in Arizona to network with as many educators as I can and get out this urgent message. I agree wholeheartedly that this is the time for a voucher system and for parents and the church to work together to educate our students.

  7. Return Your order to all school systems Lord, and make a way for the federal monies to follow the child, allowing each one to be put in your perfect place! Move all schools to return to the heart of being places where they are free to teach the American and godly values set forth by our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and our Constitution as to a Republican form of government.

    Expose the teachers unions for what they really are and give courage to teachers to say no more!! Dry up the finances for everything ungodly!!

    16
  8. Yes Lord! We lift up the educational system in our country, that by Your Almighty hand the corruption may be exposed and the goodness of caring teachers and staff and parents be brought to the forefront. We trust you Lord to lead and guide your people as we pray into the needs of our children.

    I would also like to make a comment and an observation. One of the major tactics of government overreach is to entrap an entity, in this case public schools, into receiving Federal dollars “to help”. Once that happens big government then takes control of your local school or any other entity. “We gave you money, now you must heel to our demands.” Free hands out sound nice. People freely grab them; but what is God’s heart? He tells us to “do justly”. Are we being just towards our children to take free money to help us? And then lose control in the end?

    I would caution any school entity, private schools, home schools, Christian schools. If you accept any Federal dollars you are selling yourself down the river of control – eventually. It’s just a matter of time. An example I highly regard is Hillsdale college. They refuse any and all offers of Federal funding, for anything. Whether for gov’t grants or scholarships, or any other types of monies supposedly to benefit school and students. Their reason? – We will remain free to teach the American and godly values set forth by our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and our Constitution as to a Republican form of government.

    May we pray God’s help to give us healthy sources of education without government interference.

    18
    1. This even applies to Christian Universities, like Rhema, ORU. That is why I love Andrew Wommack’s, Charis Bible College. Andrew Wommack does not accept any federal money.

      8
    2. Yes LKH this also applies to churches with a 501c3. It is a quid pro quo. Gov’t exempts church from paying taxes in exchange for what? What does the gov’t want from the church in exchange for tax exemption? Interesting.

  9. Lord, help parents and grandparents be more involved in their childrens’ education and train them in the ways of the Lord. I pray that parents will receive help for school choice. I pray against the corruption in public school curriculum…empower parents to speak up. In Jesus’ Name.

    20
    1. Lord I pray that you strategically place God fearing people in place in the classroom and on school boards who have the best interest of the children at heart. I pray you would use them for your honor and that Godliness and honor would be restored in the independent school districts in Jesus name

      10
  10. Father forgive us for keeping silent on so many areas including the public school system. Please have mercy on us and give us wisdom, mercy and courage to follow your plan for educating our children. We need you to make a way Lord. Many feel they have no choice but to send their children to school…show them how Lord. Show my husband your will for our own children and give him a heart to lead his children & be a godly father. Help us to be better parents. I ask that you protect our marriage & family unit and that we would be effective for the Kingdom of God and raising our children as you see fit. Help me as their mother to be a godly mother & wife. Build faith, love & trust in our home giving no place to the enemy. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen

    18
  11. Praise God for you, Nancy!! I’m praying our Lord will raise up one (or more) of His Administrator’s to begin a new organization of parents, teachers, and administrators to help kids learn and grow – over power the unions! Keep up the good work!!

    10
  12. I don’t believe the teachers WANT to go back into the classroom Number 1, they are getting paid for staying at home and number 2, they don’t get paid squat for teaching!

    5
    1. One of my daughters is a special needs school teacher who loves her students and is very concerned for their education and their well-being. She certainly doesn’t want them to return to a school where they and she herself could be infected with Covid 19, so I am praying that GOD would intervene and bring this dreadful virus to an end.

      6
  13. Jesus, You desire Your best for our children and grandchildren. Show us the path to freedom for parents to meet the social, spiritual and educational needs of their children.

    18
  14. I have prayed about this for some time and am getting involved in learning about Healthy Teen Network and their agenda to get to legislators, school boards, and yes, our children to spread their diabolical sexual education. The Heritage Foundation is offering a summit through their website on Protecting Children in education on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 from 10:00 to 3:30. I will be participating in that to learn more about strategies, laws, etc. so I can effectively pray for this issue. Lord God, bring truth, information, and wisdom to all who are praying about this issue. Increase the number of prayer warriors for the education of our beautiful children. Amen.

    19
  15. Holy Father:
    In Jesus’ name we pray that all the school districts (grade to college) enjoy: * Academic to increase; * Violence to decrease and *Bold Christian students to stand up and share the Gospel and be the influencer. Student (from grade to college) moves to take over their school via prayer. Let them see the result so that they can grow in knowing that You’re there for them and that You answer prayer.

    In Jesus’ name we pray, please give wisdom to Betsy DeVos to have a Task Force that will re write the curriculum of education from K12 to college that must include Bible Study Father God because that’s the only way that we sinful human can be a righteous human. Let Public schools, be re founded on Christian Principles.
    It’s time that our children learn and to live Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

    For so many years the Democrat and Teachers Union (NEA) have been brainwashing our children thru education. In Jesus’ name we pray that our authority and tear down the ungodly structures of the National Education Association! Father God, we ask that their resources to dry up. Just as Jesus spoke to the nonproducing fig tree and it dried up from the roots, we speak to the resources of those who work evil in our school system and command their money, communication, and alliances to dry up from the roots. I Jesus’ name, we ask that that the Teacher Union membership to decrease immensely.

    In Jesus’ name, we pray that You will raise us teachers who believe in God, who walk with God daily, who really love what they do, who dare to stand up for what is right, who dare to be influencer.

    Thank You, Father. Amen.

    Lord Jesus transform this nation and our schools so that the Holy Spirit is once again honored as the Teacher who leads us into all truth. We curse this Marxist educational system from the roots up. We pray that you will send down the hail stones and remove the wall and the wood hay and stubble and the whitewashers who built it and return us to the Founders’ vision of education by pursuit of the Truth and the wisdom and knowledge of God. We pray for strength, fortitude, and grace on all the homeschooling parents, homeschooling groups, Christian education, independent groups, and all those who seek to escape the public schools. We ask that your anointing will rest upon them. Continue to harden the heart of the marxist system so that what they have built will be abandoned to the moles and the bats. We pray for those trapped in inter-city schools that new enterprises of classic Christian education will rise up and take these children in. We pray for the money for education to go directly to the parents and children. Strengthen President Trump, Dr. Carson and Betsy Devoss with wisdom and power from on High to accomplish this. We ask this in the matchless and all powerful name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

    27
  17. Yes and Amen! You have because you Ask! Lord, the hearts of Children belong to you, Please raise up Godly teachers, equip and empower them through your grace, bring them together to teach righteousness, that we may live in peace. Lord cause parents to embrace their responsibility to teach their children and seek out godly teachers to help them. May the idolatry that has risen in our schools be torn down and your presence Lord fill the educational institutions.

    23
  18. Our schools have been hijacked for decades. Children are not being educated today so much as they are being “indoctrinated” in beliefs and practices antithetical to Christian Principals. The push to indoctrinate our children into accepting aberrant forms of sexuality is appalling. When students are unaware of the history of our nation and those leaders that made it great, it is easy to pull down statues and declare the representative form of government obsolete. Parents, grandparents, it is time to rise up and take back the education of our children. Just as Hitler recognized the necessity of controlling the education of the German youth, the socialist leaning teachers unions and educations have been indoctrinating our children into embracing sexual perversion, socialism and rejection of America as the icon of freedom. No matter that there is NO example of socialism or communism working. To the contrary, it has failed 100%.
    Pray for the reclaiming of the education of our children in the elementary, middle and high schools as well and the expulsion of the college education that are anti Christian and anti American. Pray for our parents and grandparents to unite to reclaim our schools and the subjects that are taught to our children. Pray that Americans would rise up in opposition to the teachers unions and the offensive curriculums that are bing taught to our children. Pray for God to give parents and grandparents courage, strength and determination to reclaim our children’s education.

    32
  19. Heavenly Father, In Jesus’ Name I pray for Your changes, Your wisdom to dictate the critical need for change in Public Education in America. I pray for schools that are academically sound, leadership void of corruption,
    reflection of Biblical values, and an end to misuse of funding for education. I pray for all students and parents who are in the midst of these changes. Strengthen, guide, enable them to handle all that is involved in “change”. Cause it to make families stronger and grant children a sense of safety and comfort as changes
    occur. Cause teachers to weigh carefully the agenda of Teacher’s Unions to determine if they want, or need to support a union. Prevent Unions from being used to promote ungodly curriculum agenda. Lord, have mercy. Amen.

    22
  20. School’s in this country were originally based out of Churches and taught the Scriptures, this changed in the 1800’s I can not remember the exact year, but The Bible was still a cornerstone of the teachings. Taking the Bible out of the classroom occurred slowly and gradually. But was made official with the taking of prayer out of school in the 1960’s. Many teachers still tried to keep prayers in the classroom but were ostracised for doing it. I was a student in grade school at the time of the Madyln Murray O’hare decision

    6
  21. Lord God, as a former public school teacher I thank you for the opportunities when I was able to pray for students and show them through my science teaching the Truth about creation. I thank you for how you protected me through those years and opened doors constantly. So heavenly Father I pray for those public school teachers that are Christians that they would be bold and that you would give protection to them Lord. I pray also for Release Time Bible programs that allow students to learn about Jesus during the public school day off campus. Lord God that you would protect all those Release Time Bible classes that are throughout the United States. I pray for homeschooling parents Lord and that you would help them in their endeavor to teach their children well and that monies would be able to go to them directly instead of to the school systems. Please thwart the efforts of those ungodly public school systems and teachers, that you would cover the ears of children so they would not hear those things that are not of You. Lord and I just pray for a major change in our school system and that parents would stand up and realize what’s taking place within the schools. And again help those godly teachers and protect them throughout this year.
    I pray this in the name of Jesus amen.

    34
  22. BridgeBuiders International Ministry in Phoenix Arizona has a 21 day prayer initiative to pray specifically for schools. Their material is free. Just go to their web. They have amazing results from this praying, i.e. grades up, suicides down.
    This year is even more important as we determine to take back what the enemy has stolen. No more. We choose to Appeal To Heaven. Amen.

    16
    1. Dear Father, As a former public educator, I ask that you expose the lies of the enemy regarding coursework, teachers and unions. Father you know that the most needy children do not have parents that would ever entertain a website such as IFA, and have no one to speak up for them as schools fall apart. We ask that you bless the families that are willing to battle for their children, but Father, you tell us that true faith is caring for the widows and orphans. So many children are orphaned emotionally and physically and need us to step in during this fight to consider them too. Give us wisdom, an open heart and discipline to follow through with Your will for these needy children. In Jesus’ name, amen.

      22
    2. Yes, I am from Arizona and am sharing with everyone the 21 Days of Prayer for Education. Website is bridgebuilders.net Many resources including a Prayer of Dedication, Psalm 91 for Education, prayer walking ideas etc. You can also contact them to be able to use the material for your own state.

      2
  23. Lord, please confuse the strategy of the demonic realm fueling corruption in the teachers union. Make one lie prove another wrong until they kill each other and fall to the ground In Jesus name, amen.

    12
  24. So we have socialistic teachers unions formed years ago by the government I believe back in the 1970’s or 1980’s, not a President Trump decision. So perhaps the Pelosi’ and Schumer’s and the other career senators and representatives are the indirect cause of this. Prayer is also needed for the removal of these lifers.

    15
  25. Jesus, You are For the little children. Cover them in Your sacred Blood.
    Sweep through every place of education and activity for children in America, we pray!
    Lord, Supernaturally transform the minds of all educators, to genuinely focus on wholesome teachings, Please do Not allow for political agendas!
    Raise up Reading, Writing, Listening Skills, Pure Speech, Understanding, Mathematics, Problem Solving, Creative Thinking, Respect & Decency, principles of Godly Living!
    Have Your Way, Father God. We love, need and trust only You. In Jesus’Name of Authority we pray. Amen

    33
  26. We echo the request of Caleb, (Joshua 14:12)”Give me this mountain !” O Lord, let it again be known and declared and proclaimed as fact in our communities across the United States of America:
    schools were established in this country to teach children to read in order for them to READ THE BIBLE ! Forgive us that we have given over the education of our children to people who have sought to remove You from their knowledge. Thank You, O Mighty God, that You are bringing us back !

    41
      1. Lord Jesus transform this nation and our schools so that the Holy Spirit is once again honored as the Teacher who leads us into all truth.

We ask this in the matchless and all powerful name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

  27. I know a neighbor who home-schooled three girls until high-school. One of them took piano lesson early on. As a career, the piano student, is now a music therapist. The high school the mother chose was a college prep school. Another makes a lot of money at a Carolina University. The parent’s are Christians. I pray for parent’s to train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Referred to Proverbs 22:6.

    17
    1. I thank you for sharing this! I thank the Lord for the resurgence of homeschooling and the advantages it brings to both saved and unsaved parents. I ask,Lord, that more Christian parents would be encouraged to teach their children at home, and that husbands and wives would support each other in this. We bind the power of unions and other ungodly influences on our children, and release truth, wisdom and love to them. We ask you to draw the hearts of the children to their parents and the hearts of parents to their children.

      17
  28. Father we invite and declare with You that Your Kingdom to come and Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven in every school district in our nation today in Christ Jesus Your Son’s name, amen 🙏

Online Personal Safety
We hope and pray that all intercessors involved in Intercessors for America are trustworthy, well-meaning, and have a heart for prayer for our nation.
