I Prayed have prayed
Father, thank You for teachers and school administrators who are willing to put their jobs on the line to stand for Your Truth and for our children. We ask You to strengthen and encourage them. We ask that Your Truth will prevail.

A pair of teachers are seeking to take a Virginia school district to court over a newly passed policy requiring, among other things, that staff uses the preferred names and pronouns of trans-identified students.

Loudoun County High School history teacher Monica Gill and Smart’s Mill Middle School English teacher Kim Wright filed an amended complaint to block the new policy passed last week by the Loudoun County School Board.

By a vote of 7-2, the board passed Policy 8040: Rights of Transgender and Gender-Expansive Students last week despite considerable opposition to the proposal from some teachers and parents…

The complaint further alleges that if the teachers were to comply with the policy, “they would be forced to communicate a message they believe is false.”…

Tyson Langhofer of the Alliance Defending Freedom, the legal nonprofit representing the teachers, said in a statement on Tuesday that he believes the teachers “shouldn’t be forced to promote ideologies that are harmful to their students and that they believe are false.”…

Policy 8040 requires that school faculty and staff use the chosen name and pronouns of a student who identifies as “gender-expansive or transgender.”

“School staff shall, at the request of a student or parent/legal guardian, when using a name or pronoun to address the student, use the name and pronoun that correspond to their consistently asserted gender identity,” the policy reads.

“The use of gender-neutral pronouns is appropriate. Inadvertent slips in the use of names or pronouns may occur; however, staff or students who intentionally and persistently refuse to respect a student’s gender identity by using the wrong name and gender pronoun are in violation of this policy.”…

According to a frequently-asked-questions document, LCPS recommended that schools “make efforts to eliminate gender-based practices to the extent possible,” claiming that these practices “can have the effect of marginalizing, stigmatizing, and excluding students, regardless of their gender identity or gender expression.”…

The policy garnered national headlines when LCPS suspended Cross after he spoke out in his personal capacity against the policy at a school board meeting in May.

“My name is Tanner Cross, and I am speaking out of love for those who suffer with gender dysphoria,” stated Cross at the time. “I love all of my students, but I will never lie to them regardless of the consequences.”

Cross sued the school district in response to the suspension, with a judge granting the…teacher a temporary injunction for his reinstatement in June while the lawsuit proceeds. LCPS is appealing the judge’s decision…

Please share your encouragement and your prayers for these teachers and their legal counsel, below.

Deuteronomy 20:4 For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight against your enemies to give you victory. PSALM 50:15 “And call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”

Father bless those who stand for Truth of Your Word, whom choose to obey You vs man’s foolish ways. May Your will be done, may you save these children from lies and deception from the enemy and the World. Break the Spiritual pull of confusion, deception and rebellion. May the transgender minded children hear the TRUTH through Words, Scriptures, dreams, visions and whatsoever You will to protect them and other innocent children from being victimized. Lord Please Help!!in Jesus name I ask. Amen

Father in the name of Jesus we ask the Holy Spirit for assistance to pray this issue through according to your will. We know your word says you made male and female “period”, but Father gender confusion transgenderism, and Homosexuality are a part of life now, out in the open and these people need to see the love of Jesus in us when we interact with them and when we are faced with these issues and their desire to be referred to as their desired gender instead of their God given
biological one. Father when it comes to “our rights” as Christians are we able to continue walking in love and respect when we disagree with this? These people have a constitutional right to pursue life and happiness in their chosen identity and we have rights as well, and moral obligations, yet are called to live in peace and not offend others. This is a tough call, i see both sides. Father intervene we ask and bring total clarity To all in how to truly honor and glorify you in this issue walking in love. We thank you and praise you

Male and Female are objective realities, transgender identity is a construct and the collectivistic obsession a genuine social construct driven by a desire to belong. Jesus give these precious children and us all eyes to see ourselves as you do.

Father, Creator of every human born, and in the womb, You alone decide what gender each of us will be. I declare clearness of thought and conviction as teachers all over the country stand for the values and basic core truths set forth in the Bible. Deliver our children, educators, parents, clergy, from falling into the denial of basic human life…..God made them male and female. Give courage to these teachers, protect them and provide for all their needs as they stand firmly for the principles You establish for the goodness and peace of all men. Awaken parents and all citizens to the false agendas of confusion and destructive imaginations of social engineering at the cost of our children. Raise up men and women of prayer and courage to stand firm so our children may learn the love of God for them as one He created.
May the Lord of Heaven’s Armies reverse the false doctrines confronting us all, and break the satanic plots to rob, steal, and destroy the innocence of childhood.

Dear Lord, I thank You for Education Personnel who are willing to put their jobs on the line to stand up for truth and for children. I ask and pray that You would strengthen and encourage them. And I pray that Your Truth will prevail. In Jesus name, Amen.

I pray for courage for every person who agrees with God’s creation of male and female in His image to stand up and speak out! Parents, we need to start at home and teach our children from the Word of God that they are precious and made in the image of God- male and female He created them! These separate qualities are to be celebrated, not twisted. Society is crying out for love and acceptance, but first need to see their worth and value in who and how God created them.

I am so thankful for the people who are willing to stand up to this socialist agenda. Our children at the ages that they are do not know what they want. All children make statements that they want to be a boy or girl, usually because of something they see the boy doing or playing with. I had that experience with one of my grandchildren. Now she is 19 and never thought of the statement she made again. She is beautiful. So don’t take these statements seriously.

Father in Jesus name thank you for the teachers and other people who are standing up for our rights to choose for our children. Thank you that they know your Word and stand for the truth of the Word. You created each and every person and there are no mistakes with you. Thank you for speaking to us and standing with and for us in these situations. Protect our children Lord. I plead the blood over these parents, teachers and children for protection and understanding according to Your Word. I place a hedge of protection around them for safety and pray for their destiny to come to pass as you planned. Thank you Jesus.

Another opportunity to stand in the gap. Don’t leave and give the ground to the enemy. We as Christ followers would rather go find some peace and freedom elsewhere without conflict. Impossible now. The enemy is actively seeking to steal (our heritage of freedoms given by God), kill us and our rights if we don’t kneel and worship him and destroy every area that Christ might be glorified. We must call upon the name of the Lord and take back these positions of authority. I prefer to work my job but maybe we need to reenter this sector and lead with righteousness not self-serving agendas of evil. Of course this is supposed to be in the last of the last days. God save us and strengthen us to stand in your name and in Jesus, the way, the Truth and Life.

    Psalm 68:19 “Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation. Selah”
    ‭‭
    At the heart of being a Christian, both now and in eternity, is our relationship with Jesus Christ.

    Believers have the joy of trusting and loving Christ, but they also suffer trials. This is what God’s salvation looks like in the present. The angels and hosts in heaven are watching us, Lord willing, continue to stand firm in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you teachers for standing firm in the faith of Christ.

Thank Father for raising up Your church to stand for Your righteousness and truth where ever they are. Protect these teachers who are willing to fight for Your kingdom here on earth. Cause them to influence others to stand. Manifest Your Holy Spirit in our teachers, schools and our children. Bless them with wisdom and discernment. Father, You can do exceedingly more than we can ask or imagine. Cause this move of the enemy to fail and fall producing a great harvest for the kingdom beyond comprehension.
Father, manifest your spirit in our children causing them to discern truth from lies. I pray only seeds of truth take root in each child and all seeds of lies and deception fall dormant and die in Jesus name. I place the full armor of God upon each child and teachers who are standing for truth.
Be glorified oh Lord in our schools and our teachers and raise up mighty warriors of God to fight this demonic spirit and principality. Father we humbly ask out of your great mercy and love for children and our nation please send Your warriors to fight this battle for us and bring glory to Your holy name revealing who you are and Your faithfulness. I pray Christ Jesus be manifested in Your ambassadors here on earth that they represent You well and influence our culture to turn back to You. In Jesus name, May Your kingdom come and Your perfect will be done.
Respectfully,
Susan

I wouldn’t keep my child(ren) in these schools while I am fighting the people elected to the school board that are supposed to have all parents and childrens’ best interest at heart. I would homeschool my child or place my child in a school that believes as I and my family does. Once our battle is won I would consider coming back to the public schools. It is sad to see adults making decisions for little children to perhaps see and discuss opposite sex genitals before they even get into puberty. FATHER GOD I bind every demon on these school board members across America and loose the Anointing of the HOLY SPIRIT over all of these districts in JESUS Name. Please give the wicked teachers’ unions leaders and the teachers and administrators a vision of hell that is waiting for them if they do not repent and receive JESUS as LORD! Let them be converted and renounce their wicked ways. Protect the innocent children from these filthy dreamers in the MIGHTY Name of JESUS! Amen!

    Amen, Carol, I agree! Let parents wake up, stand up and speak up. Give those pair of brave teachers and the children victory, Lord.
