I Prayed have prayed
Reading Time: 5 minutes

“Students listen up. Just days ago Chicago, the 3rd largest American city, elected its first lesbian, socialist, same-sex partnered, black female mayor,  Lori Lightfoot!  In her acceptance speech she said, ‘I think about the children…boys and girls seeing leaders who look like them.’ And the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg, is also gay and ‘married’ to his homosexual partner and preparing to declare his candidacy for President of the United States! Let’s give it up for LGBTQ advances today!”

This Friday is a big day in thousands of elementary schools, middle and high schools, colleges and universities across America. GLSEN (The Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network) promotes underhandedly the LGBTQ lifestyle to impressionable sons and daughters by calling for solidarity with a “Day of Silence”. This diabolical initiative erodes and corrupts the innocence and morals of our children at a time when “progressives” propagandize the LGBTQ ideology in our schools.

Since God directs fathers and mothers to train their children in righteous standards, it’s imperative that you find out if your particular school is one of scores signed on to this annual propaganda “promo.” Parents can put their collective foot down at this insidious trickery by joining in the nationwide DOS (“Day of Silence” Walkout).This also provides an excellent opportunity to share respectfully with school officials you “choose today whom you will serve…as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Josh 24:15).

While you’re checking, you may want to inquire if the library is allowing registered sex offenders to perform  drag queen routines and readings for children, the latest “trend” in diversity training in schools today.

Vigilance Required

Years ago Senator Patrick Moynihan (Dem., N.Y.) warned us how we need to be alert to attempts at “defining deviancy down”. In other words, we need to be on guard to those intentionally endorsing behavior that was once stigmatized and abnormal, bringing it to the “normal” level.

When Israel was going to battle against the ruthless Midianites, God gave explicit directions to select an elite force of soldiers who would be vigilant to spot  oncoming stealth attacks. He told Gideon to bring the people down to the water and watch for those who would carefully lap the water cupping their hands to their mouths yet staying watchful, contrasted with those who carelessly knelt down to drink providing opportunities for the enemy’s sneak attack (Judg.7:4-8).

Parents in these challenging times must be part of God’s special forces who are “watchmen on the wall” and give no ground to “powers and principalities” setting up schemes to seduce our children into ungodliness. The cultural war is real and the days of of passivity are over. When Miley Cyrus boasts of influencing 82 million Instagram followers by her hedonistic example, it’s a wake up season for Christian pastors and parents.

Currently there’s a movie targeting young people playing in theaters with the enticing title Cruel Intentions. Attractive and “cool” celebrities play students betting they can seduce a Christian girl committed to purity to fornicate and thereby win a sexual “prize” for the conquest.

The film features some of the most explicit sexual conduct imaginable along with foul profanities and blasphemy of the name of Jesus. In addition to homosexual and lesbian behavior, the entire storyline is replete with propaganda directed at corrupting the values of our sons and daughters. [See the entire review at the “Plugged In” ministry website].

You may wonder like I did how Reese Witherspoon could play the compromising lead role. One day she’ll have to tell her look-alike teen daughter why she engaged in such a perverted and shameful production.

Understanding the “Day of Silence”

Friday, April 12, in schools everywhere LGBTQ proponents again roll out their clever initiative having students remain silent to dramatize bigotry and discrimination to the LGBTQ “community”. They’ll be taught that we never discriminate if two students “come out as gay” and are proud of their newly discovered sexual orientation. The same applies if a fellow identifies now as a female mandating full access to girls’ changing rooms and bathrooms.

Teachers can freely encourage participation in “gay clubs” and warn students not to question any of the above or other parts of the LGBTQ agenda. And here is the zinger: disagreement with the above is “bullying” and it will be prohibited, punished and put away in our “enlightened” culture of tolerance.

GLESN helps schools implement policies and curricula to educate students, plus they encourage follow-up events with speakers and workshops for further instruction to enable schools to become “more LGBTQ inclusive”. Teachers and administrators are encouraged to go to their website as the organization offers free streaming documentaries and study guides about “transgender and gender expansive youth”. They are generous in offering posters and graphics featuring themes like “Silence is Rebelling Against the Norm. It’s Resistance.” along with promotional stickers, buttons, T-shirts and temporary tattoos.

Resisting the Ruse

Eliza Byard, GLESN’s lesbian Executive Director says, “Support for transgender students in K–12 schools changes and saves lives and hurts no one.”

Is it true that it “hurts no one” to support confused young people drifting into unbiblical lifestyles? Is it really harmless to choose alternate behaviors clearly prohibited by God yet endorsed and celebrated by the LGBTQ community?

A little while ago, the Centers for Disease Control released their most extensive report ever on homosexual youth, “The Youth Risk Behavior Survey”. The results were downright scary!

• The life expectancy of homosexuals was 20 years less.

• Statistics on their high incidence of sexually transmitted diseases were chilling.

• They were four times as likely to attempt suicide.

• They were twice as likely as heterosexual teens to have been victims of sexual or physical dating violence; to be regular cigarette smokers; to have tried marijuana before age 13; to ever have used cocaine, hallucinogenic drugs, ecstasy and taking prescription drugs without a doctor’s prescription.

• They were more likely to be current marijuana users than heterosexual students; more likely to drink alcohol; plus, over four times as likely to have used methamphetamines or heroin.

• They were 25% more likely to have had sexual intercourse; more likely to be currently sexually active; and, to have had four or more sexual partners.

• They were more prone to hopelessness and depression.

Safeguard not Silence

LGBTQ advocacy groups like GLESN want to keep silent about these statistics, similar to Planned Parenthood with revealing “stats” on their butchery of precious babies. Their solutions are “Days of Silence,” gay-friendly curricula, participation in gay pride events, “safe spaces” and gay clubs in schools to provide encouragement and support in celebrating one’s gay or transgender lifestyle. Their endgame is to ultimately silence all opposition to the LGBTQ philosophy and punish those dissenting like Canada does through its “hate crimes” legislation (see “Fined $55,000 for Calling a Male a Male”) which I was warned about when I spoke there at a conference.

Scripture says, “Likewise the men, leaving the natural function of the woman, burned in their lust towards one another, men with men doing that which is shameful, and receiving in themselves the due penalty of their error” (Rom.1:27). The same “red alert” is given for women who engage in this lifestyle contrary to God’s design for men, women and the family.

Here’s the deal: practicing homosexuality and lifestyles contrary to God’s loving design for humanity is sinful and brings severe consequences to those who disobey. Our sacred duty is to safeguard our children from this “penalty” not sentence them to suffering by our silence.

Thank you for informing us about this! I prayed most of the prayers at the bottom. We are certainly in a battle! May God give us the grace to fight it with love and boldness to proclaim the Truth of His holy Word!

Lord, please hear our heartfelt prayers and show us how to reverse the indoctrination of our children with the knowledge and acceptance of non-Biblical sexuality. Protect the minds and hearts of our children from falling prey to the snares of Satan. Create a generation of Daniels who resist the temptations and instead remain faithful to You. I pray Father that You orchestrate the revival of sexual purity as part of our return to You. Amen.

What satan would use for evil here on this day would you, Almighty God, take and use it for good. . . .for your glory and honor and praise. Only in your Name. Only in your power can this be accomplished . . .amen and amen

Father God, I pray in agreement with these who are praying Your Word. Thank You for opening the eyes and ears to Your Truth. Thank You for the repentance that is happening right now, and will continue. Thank You for giving each one of us the courage to stand up and continue to speak Your Words in truth and in love. Thank You for the conviction of Your Holy Spirit, Who leads men and women, boys and girls to repentance. In Jesus Name we ask this, amen and amen!

Lord, all these people could draw children into their lifestyle through a web of lies but still their needs would not be met until they surrender their lives to you. I pray that they would recognize the emptiness on the inside of them comes from their need to fulfilled by You. And in doing so, they will cry out to You, repent of their sins & ask You to fill them afresh. Only then will they be made whole & become new in you. Open their eyes to the truth, In Jesus name, Amen!

Father God, I pray that you will intervene as only you can! We all repent for being so blinded for so long that these evils could even happen. Lord forgive us for wearing blinders and thinking we couldn’t make a difference……help the children Jesus , in spite of our ignorance. Amen

Father, I pray for a move of your Holy Spirit to rest upon parents who are unaware or ignorant and stir them to a righteous indignation so that churches and PTA communities all over the country will let that “collective foot-drop” be heard loud and clear by our city, state, national, and worldwide officials. Would you move as in days of Gideon to raise up prayer warriors who will pray and act as led by You……and see the Salvation of the Lord to save our children and a generation of teens,& young adults from all deceptive words, threats, laws, and schemes to your family order. Bring to repentance, to the Cross of Christ, those already deceived and bound in lifestyles that are an abomination to Your Holiness….in Jesus Christ, and the power of His Name…..Amen

    Praise You Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, for hearing our prayers of repentance for being complacent and allowing so many people to be deceived by the lies concerning homosexuality. I agree with Sandra’s prayer for the parents to be wise to teach their children the truth of Your Word and not allow the lies of satan to be encouraged at our public schools. I agree the churches need to teach the TRUTH in love. Churches who participate in gay marriage & teachings are not warning the people of the sin that will bring judgement on them. Lord, hear our prayer & set these deceived people free. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen

Oh dear Jesus, please change the hearts of this community so they see their sin and you as their only redemption. Save our children and youth from the lies of Satan to call good evil and evil good. Forgive us for not standing for you in our country as we in humility love those who hate us but do not pray for their hearts. You are my Savior and I believe all things are possible through you.

Dear lord, please open the hearts of these people who judge gay people with hatred in their hearts. I know you grieve for your children who are gay and hated for being how you made them, in your image, regardless of their sexual orientation. Please help people like the author of this article to stop hating, stop fearing those who are different, and start loving. In the name of our beloved savior Jesus, Amen.

    I will pray for your heart that you will know purity is the will of God. Scripture says this is sin. No one here hates the sinner. We are called to love him or her as a child of God. We know God’s distaste for such behavior. We are all sinful and fall short of the glory of God. When we sin we ask forgiveness. Instead you are asking God to forgive that for which we are not guilty. We are not intolerant as to the person. Its about behavior. Please understand that I’m not judging anyone. That’s the job of God who is our only righteous judge. All you do and support is judged by Him, not me. Please do not as me to believe as you do. For me that would be sinful. It would also be sinful for me to hate you. Accept this in the love intended.

    God created them….all of them….us….male and female….holy in His image. Yet, sin entered the world and man chose to rebel against God. Sin brings separation from the holiness of God. Yes, God loves His creation, and to reunite that male or female to Himself once again, He sent Jesus. There is no other way to be reconciled to our Holy God, but by the cross of Jesus Christ….blood bought, forgiven, redeemed and ready for Eternal Life at the end of this one. Once we are redeemed from the sin of our past, that sinful self no long strives to live, but it is Christ who lives within us. The shame of any Christian is to confuse the glorious redemptive act of Christ with the sinful acts offered as “wholesome” before God. The Bible teaches clearly God’s will concerning the two, the only two sexes; Old and New Testament. God’s mercy is evident as Abraham asked God to spare Sodom and Gomorah if only a few righteous men were found…..God relented until it was clear that the people were overcome with sodomy, lusting even after Lot’s guest angels. It’s not harsh or hateful to trust in Biblical standards. In truth it is love. Praying for eyes to be opened, not only to gain truth from the Bible, but to submit to it.
    May He find us faithful and walking in the Truth when Christ comes again. Come Lord Jesus, Come.

Forgive the sins of this Nation. Forgive the sins of Your church Lord. In Your mercy and Grace have mercy and Grace and protect the children, teens and college students from the agenda of perversion from Your Truth. Lord I put a hedge of thorns around our children and anything vile and perverted that is being exposed to them at school, in our theaters, videos, on the internet or anywhere else. Protect them in public places and I pray they would be drawn to You, Your Word and one man and one women relationships. What Satan means to kill and destroy please claim the innocence and protection of children for Your Glory and praise. In Jesus name. Amen

Father, I humbly ask You in Your infinite wisdom to bind this move of the enemy all over this world. Please show the Church & all of Your Children how to love and the wisdom to know how to reach & help these broken & searching souls. Snatch them out of the hand of what the enemy is doing and into Your perfect will for their life. One of fulfillment and the joy only You can give them. So be it according to your will, way & perfect timing. AMEN!!

Father! This is straight from the pit of hell, this behavior from the homosexual community. You would not have destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah if it were not evil. Have mercy on us Father. We are a sinful nation! Abhorrent behaviors and sinfulness abounding. What a gracious God you are not to have destroyed us completely yet. Please Father, change our hearts and minds toward You and rid us of the evil one and his grip on our nation once and for all! In Jesus Name, amen.

We lift up our children to You and call forth a hedge of protection around them, to keep them safe from deception and defilement. With our prayers we especially target those children whose parents have been blinded to Truth and who may consider training in righteousness to be “brainwashing.” Father, we thank You for Truth and commit ourselves to declaring it in word and action. We call forth boldness in the Body of Christ so that our lives demonstrate that we are not ashamed of the gospel and are not intimidated into silence because of fear. We choose to surrender to the guidance, inspiration and empowerment of Holy Spirit to lead lives that are pure and holy, firmly grounded in You. We choose to say, “No” to those who would attempt to call evil good. As well, we choose to eliminate any and all compromise from our own habits and attitudes, being ever mindful that the world is watching to see the reality of Your character, Your ways and Your will demonstrated consistently in our lives. Father, thank You for loving us and our children in such a pure and powerful way that we can trust You to aid us in being faithful as we continually seek transformation into Your likeness. May our lives be abundantly fruitful as we recognize that we ARE righteous and You, our Living HOLY Father, provide the way of escape from all temptation simply through mention of Your Name, seeking help and grace in the time of need. Help us as parents, grandparents, other relatives and friends and neighbors to train our children in the way they should go. May You continually and increasingly be glorified in our lives. For Your SON’s sake and in Your GREAT Name we pray. Amen

O Lord, nothing remains hidden in darkness from You. Raise up leaders to oppose this sinful acts, raise up the voice from the pulpit to no longer be accepting and affirming of this behavior. Oh Father, we pray for those caught in this trap by the evil one, so self deceived and broken hearted without hope. You Lord have known this from the beginning of time, You have a plan. Please Lord, stir up this burden in each of us to protect the next generation. Nothing new under the sun, and just as in the time of Sodom and Gommorha here we find ourselves. Lord we need focus blunders on to keep our eyes on You, off of the sinful plight of this nation, may we repent of electing officials that promote this agenda. Father we thank you for Your Son Jesus, we know You have a plan, may we now the knee to You alone today and choose to raise up in righteousness our voices against this sin.
