I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we thank you for the diligence you've placed in our hearts. We thank you for people like Michele, that stand their ground. We pray that this would create a domino effect on other reporters.

From The Daily Wire: NBC Sports reporter Michele Tafoya revealed in an interview this week that the reason she left the leftist news organization was because she wanted to fight for American values by advocating for middle of the road ideas and pushing back against far-left wokeness in schools.

“It’s been on my mind for quite a while,” Tafoya told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “I’ve been waking up every day with a palpable pull at my gut. That my side, my view, my middle ground, kind of moderate viewpoint is not being represented to the rest of the world, I didn’t feel. And so, rather than, you know, just banging it out on Twitter or Instagram every day, I thought, I’ve got to do something. I have benefited greatly from the American dream. And I feel like for the sake of my kids, and because I so love this country, I’ve got to start giving back…”

“I’m just astonished that we’re so looking in the rearview mirror and not absorbing the progress that we’ve made in this country and building on it and recognizing it,” Tafoya told Carlson. “And it breaks my heart, that my kids are being taught that skin color matters. And to me, if you want white people to step up, I was stepping up when I addressed the school and said, why are we having these picnics for families of color? Why are we separating our kids? The world is integrated; let’s continue that and have everyone find out what we all have in common, not just what we have in common with people who look like us.”

I pray for the reporters and parents and even teachers and children to have a Holy Boldness in fighting Critical Race Theory with the Truth. May we stand and speak out on all occasions where this topic needs to be heard. May our nation be healed and strengthened by the Truth through Jesus, who is our Truth, Life and Way. Let us continue in prayer and sharing both in public and in private, the love and truth of Christ.

Lord, heal our Nation Lotd, heal your people and this land that so greatly needs you. Bless this woman and others like her who are willing to stand for truth, freedom and you Lord. Thank you for your grace and your mercy, for loving us and please Lord protect our children, let them KNOW YOUR voice and give them wisdom and courage!!!!

Good she quit but she’s not going far enough. Supporting all that our founding Fathers intended and instituted is the only way to go. Not just the road of “compromise” which is just a more gradual road to socialism!

Also we All played together in God heart before he hooked us to our mothers womb. Adam is our Great Great etc Grandfather. Color doesn’t matter. We were All perfectly and wonderfully made and after HIS Image

U R 💯 correct GOD will bless you this stand.. Love has Zero FEAR in it. A few of us started in 2015 praying to our Father ABBA Pappa Daddy to raise people like you the Truckers etc up that will change this USA and the world. FEAR is their #1 & thing. Soon ALL will be exposed world wide nothing will be held back. Justice must be before “HIS Kingdom Come”. Michele God bless you this is More important than you know. This will encourage millions. Thanks

I pray that Michele’s courageous action will inspire a mass exodus of other reporters from the leftist media. I’m sure there is a multitude of others who have just been waiting for someone to start the parade.

Courage is contagious!

I am so proud of her for taking a stand. If we don’t take a stand and have courage, we will end up losing our freedom to stand and speak up.

Thank you Michele Tafoya. May your voice be heard by many and my fear not stop us from what we would share. May God bless and protect your family.

So inspired and encouraged by listening to this interview and learning what Michele Tafoya has done – quitting her job, speaking at her children’s school – she is standing up and speaking out for what is right. As she mentioned in her interview, so many are afraid to do this now, because of the repercussions – speech isn’t really free right now and if our speech isn’t free then our country cannot continue to be free. Michele is a perfect example of “the power of one” post on http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com; hopefully others will be inspired to follow her lead in not remaining silent while our children are being taught the opposite of what MLK preached, that it’s our character that matters, not the color of our skin. We are all God’s children, created in His image.

Thank you, Michele, for speaking out so courageously! Your views are totally inline with so many others in our country and I’m grateful that you are using your exposure to promote the ideals that made our country great from the beginning. May God endow you with His strength and grace to continue your efforts. God bless you!

Thank you all for all of your fervent effectual prayers, they have availed much in my and my husband’s lives in our total healing from covid! Your prayers and partaking of communion daily has wrought another miraculous healing in my body. Two Wednesdays ago, I was covered with burning hives head to foot for the 11th week! The devil tried his best to kill me that night but Jesus had other plans for my life! Glory to His name greater than any name here on and under the Earth and any in the heavenly places. My husband was at the hospital having his Ramicade infusion, an all day procedure. All of a sudden hives attacked my throat, I couldn’t swallow and I was suffocating and could not breathe. I told Jesus if He wanted to take me home to Heaven that way, I was more than ready and willing to go with Him, but asked Him to let me prepare hubby first. So He strengthened me enough to find our advanced directives that instruct the EMTs not to resuscitate me ! Then I wrote down the phone number to contact the NH Cremation Society and I told him they would come and pick up my body. Then bless everyone with my personal belongings in Jesus’name. And I thanked him for being such a kind and loving husband for these eight years. Then I crawled back into bed, turned off the light and waited to fall asleep and wake up in Jesus’ loving arms. The minute I turned off the light , my husband came through the door and came into our bedroom,turned on the light and told me I looked like death warmed over. He said he was going to make some sage tea to drink and water with electrolytes because I was extremely dehydrated. Then he went to do the dishes and pray. Soon came back into the room and informed me that he didn’t plan on going up in the Rapture to meet Jesus face to face in those clouds of glory, we are going up together, so we will have no more talk about DNRs or death in our home again. Well, 2 hours later I could not only breathe freely but I was able to eat a healthy supper and the rest is His-;story of glory! Hallelujah ❣️ I guess God isn’t ready for me yet and He still has me here for His reasons and purposes! May Holy Spirit help to forever do Him proud and keep the enemy of all of our souls,under my feet, dancing the holy dance on his head! Amen , giving glory, honor,and fame to Jesus, our Lord, Savior, Healer, Protected, Provider, Friend and One True Lover of our souls who saves, keeps, restores and make us all whole🙏❣️

All of us human beings are here to live wisely to the best of our ability. That is our destiny. We are not here to be fools. But the left, unfortunately, plays the fool and says your destiny is determined by your skin color, not your commitment to wise living. In my humble opinion, those who love wisdom are the winners; those who love foolishness are the losers.

I am happy that she is standing up for conservative values, that she will be helping promote a conservative candidate for Governor, so needed here in Minnesota! But Father I pray You open her eyes to know the truth regarding the sanctity of life. As she said in a local interview, she is pro choice. Father I ask you bring truth to her life to know that all children are wanted and deserving of life.

God’s continued blessings to You and Your Family Michelle! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Thank you, Michelle, for your courage and example to speak truth in love. I want to be more like you.
God bless you for choosing to be a part of the solution and not the problem. I agree with Tucker probably 95 % of the people listening would agree 100% with you. I too am so very proud of you.
Praying God’s favor and blessings upon you and for your family. May you find peace in your purpose and joy in the journey.

I know what it’s like to be judged cruelly because of my little person stature and for way too long I let it make me feel self conscious and odd and unaccepted by others. Instead of focusing on my uniqueness and how God made me I let it COLOR my life and how I felt less than and lacking. Especially when others felt a need to point out my odd uniqueness in a demeaning manner. Being ridiculed and treated cruelly is not comfortable at all but if people would stop comparing and measuring by earthly standards and look to Jesus for their value there would be a whole different world to enjoy and grow in. I pray for spiritual healing for all that have ever been harmed or slighted because of their skin color, handicap, stature, economic status, IQ, anything that doesn’t go along with what’s considered normal standards and view themselves through Gods eyes. Praise Jesus for the healing only He can give to anyone and everyone that ask. May everyone who has issues with self esteem call on Jesus to show them how beautiful and wonderfully made they are to Him!

Lord, I ,as well as many others, are tired of hearing all of these positive things happening, yet nothing ever being changed. I pray father that justice will be done. I pray that the truth will come to the light and lies be revealed.. I pray for the media and big tech to repent and change their moral standards to be in alignment with your word. I pray that the far left tactics crumble like the Soviet union did. That was a huge miracle that we never thought possible. So nothing is impossible with you Lord. Let the far left ideology crumble like a house of cards and be rebuilt on godly principles. Nothing is impossible with you Lord. We are believing big! Thank you Lord that you are at work in our country for your glory. Amen.

I think that what that Reporter (Michele) is doing is great! I STAND with her 100%. That’s what Martin Luther King Jr. Speech “I HAD A DREAM” was trying to let the WORLD know it’s NOT about COLOR it’s about WE all getting alone and working together. No matter what our RACE is. In GOD’S eyes HE see No Color in HIS PEOPLE. HE LOVE US ALL! My PRAYERS ARE WITH THAT REPORTER AND OTHERS WHO ARE STANDING UP AGAINST THIS RACE THING THAT’S TRYING TO KEEP IT ALIVE! WE have to STAND Up against this evilness! Thank You and GOD BLESS!

Thank God for Michele. May her honesty and hunger for righteousness turn her to Jesus. Bless her dear Lord and let others in this field consider truth over money or fame.

Michele is a true Patriot, and her standing for the majority of americans on these matters will be rewarded by God . God Bless you Michele and know you are in the majority even though the lying fake news media is saying otherwise. May you always be led by Jesus in your mission as we all pray for TRUTH and transparency in our present communist government. By the power of God we will win this battle and bring back glory to where it should always be, to God and God alone

Father, what man intends for evil, turn to good. Let the evil boomerang back that they would see the righteous prosper.
“For Adonai keeps his eyes on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayers; but the face of Adonai is against those who do evil things.””
‭‭1 Kefa (1 Pe)‬ ‭3:12‬ ‭CJB‬‬
“There is no shalom, says my God, for the wicked.”
‭‭Yesha ‘yahu (Isa)‬ ‭57:21‬ ‭CJB‬‬
““Total darkness is laid up for his treasures, a fire fanned by no one will consume him, and calamity awaits what is left in his tent. The heavens will reveal his guilt, and the earth will rise up against him. The income of his household will be carried off; his goods will flow away on the day of his wrath. This is God’s reward for the wicked, the heritage God decrees for him.””
‭‭Iyov (Job)‬ ‭20:26-29‬ ‭CJB‬‬
