Broken Covenants

The Body of Christ is engaged in praying and lifting up the Supreme Court to uphold the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman. What I see in America is a generation that is waiting until they are older to get married.  That in itself is not a concern, but the reason behind it might be. What is our generation modeling for our children and grandchildren in regard to a covenant relationship?  Has marriage been diluted because we are living in a culture of broken covenants?  We say we want to protect marriage.  We say, it’s been this way for thousands of years, and yet what are we modeling, and why is the next generation so afraid of hurt, pain and separation? As we pray for the legal protection of marriage between one man and one woman, let’s also pray that we, believers in Jesus Christ, will not break covenant in our marriages before the Lord.  Let us model love, forgiveness, humility, submission, honoring, respecting our spouses. Prayer changes things, Lord begin with us.

LET’S PRAY For The Supreme Court Justices


Family Research Council and Call2Fall have an outstanding prayer guide on how to pray strategically for this issue.  This includes specific insights and prayer points for individual Supreme Court Justices based on how they have ruled in the past etc.  Some of the prayer points below are based on this guide.

 Heart Preparation: Repentance and Humility

·       As we begin our prayers over this issue, we humble ourselves before You, Lord. We acknowledge that Jesus Christ loves and died on the cross for all those who are caught in a homosexual lifestyle or who struggle with this temptation.

·       We acknowledge that we, the church, have not always reached out to these ones who need our acceptance, love, and help. For this we ask forgiveness, Lord.  We acknowledge the hurt and pain that many families have suffered in this regard, and ask that You, Lord, extend Your healing and grace to each broken family.

·       We further acknowledge that marriage between one man and one woman is Your original design … that this is the foundation of a healthy family and the very fabric of a stable society. It is from this position of humility and truth that we address this issue in prayer today.


 Supreme Court Justices

·       You are a Judicial God, deeply concerned with laws and our human legal system.  You are the Lawgiver, the Advocate, and the Judge of the earth; the very foundation of Your throne is righteousness and justice.

·       We therefore invite YOUR MANIFEST PRESENCE O Lord, to the chambers of the US Supreme Court, even now, that no demonic influence would be welcome or able to remain and that angels would stand watch over these men and women.

·       We fervently cry out to You for each Justice of the Court and for our Supreme Court as a whole! Remind them of the limits of their authority under the Constitution and restrain them from overstepping that boundary.  Help them to judge wisely and humbly.

·       Please would You pour out a spirit of wisdom and revelation to rest on each of them and that as the book of James tells us, the wisdom from above, not the wisdom from below, would prevail.  Thank you that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

·       May those Justices who fear You, prepare and rule in the fear of the Lord. “The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spoke to me, He that rules over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.” (2 Sam 23:3)

·       May the literal fear of God fall upon those Justices who currently do not fear You.  “Now therefore, O kings, show discernment; take warning, O judges of the earth. Worship the LORD with reverence and rejoice with trembling.” (Ps 2:10 – 11)

·       May the fear of God be upon each member’s staff: their clerks, their assistants, their friends, their families and all who influence them.  Shield them from any ungodly influence or pressure to redefine marriage, now and over the next few months.

·       May they collectively sense the very power and presence of God hovering over them, warning them of The Lord’s righteousness and justice; warning them that they must give an account to the Supreme Judge of the WORLD for their actions.

·       May they receive powerful visions and dreams that shake them to their core – just like Abimelech, Pharaoh, Pilate’s wife, Belshazzar; Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar, warning them of what will come to pass if they rule wrongly in this important case. May they be shown the consequences of their decision.

Attorneys for the same-sex couples: Mary L. Bonauto and Doug Hallward-Driemeier 

·       “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” (Eph 6:12, NLT) Recognizing that this is first and foremost a spiritual battle, we take a stand against dark forces that would empower and advance any agenda that undermines biblical marriage and religious freedom in our nation.

·       We pray that You would open the eyes of these attorneys in a “Damascus road” encounter with You!  Like Paul, who was zealously persecuting the church and was completely transformed into a great apostle, we pray for a life-changing shift for these attorneys. Thank you that nothing is impossible with You, God!

·       As they encounter the truth, would You shake the very foundation of their legal arguments and make them even doubt what they are saying.  We pray that they will be conflicted in their spirits and in their thinking and unable to persuade themselves (inwardly) or the Justices.

Attorneys defending the state’s marriage laws: John J. Bursch and Joseph L. Whalen

·       We pray for the attorneys as they prepare what will certainly be the case of their lives.  May they be given unmistakable peace that passes all understanding in their preparation and when they stand to present their case on April 28 – perfect peace and calm, unfettered by any anxiety from within or without!

·       We ask for your angelic protection over them and we bind any confusion, discouragement, depression, or fear that the enemy would send against them. May they know God’s full protection giving them safety and preserving them from harm, accidents, assaults, extortion or threats (like we saw in Indiana), and every other danger.

·       Like Daniel and his friends, we pray that they would experience a supernatural strength and that You would give them wisdom and eloquence that far exceeds natural ability! “In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times betterthan all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom.”  (Dan. 1:20)

·       May Your presence and the power of the Holy Spirit anoint them to speak with great conviction and clarity.  May their arguments be authoritative and convincing to the court, and to the nation — such as no man can refute. May their words be so weighty that they will ring in men’s ears even after court is concluded.


“The Supreme Court should resist the temptation to impose its moral values on marriage through raw judicial power, as it did with abortion through Roe v. Wade. The judicial branch is being asked to undertake a power grab unmoored from the Constitution, history, self-government, and judicial restraint. Simply put, under our republican form of government, the Supreme Court has no power to invalidate laws protecting traditional marriage under the United States Constitution.

– Judicial Watch

This is Roe v. Wade all over again. I am standing shoulder to shoulder with all who will stand up for God’s Word concerning marriage.

 Dr. James Dobson (Founder, Family Talk Radio)


Outrageous penalties are now being assessed against people of faith and conviction who haven’t changed their position on marriage. Rather it’s the courts that have changed the definitions, the rules, and laws that now govern us. They are ruling against Nature’s Law and Nature’s God. Christians are being declared the lawbreakers when we are simply living by what we have always believed, and by a set of laws that the culture historically has agreed to.

Rick Scarborough (President, Vision America Action)


“The implications of the coming Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage could be the biggest blow in recent history to religious freedom in America.”

– Rick Joyner (Founder, MorningStar Ministries)


Once you elevate same-sex marriage to the level of protected status, whether on the federal or the state level, you begin to change and transform the face of society. In my view, it will result in the beginning of the end of Western Civilization.

 Mat Staver (Founder, Liberty Counsel)

Thank you for praying!  Our 9 Supreme Court Justices literally hold the fate of religious freedom for millions of Christians and Christian businesses and ministries in their hands.

1 Tim 2:2 instructs us to pray for all who are in authority if we are to live peaceful and godly lives.  Praying for leaders and those in positions of influence and power is one of the most strategic things we can do!

Learn how you can pray for leaders effectively at our upcoming Watchmen Training event, Saturday, May 2.

Repentance and Forgiveness In Wichita

On Sunday night, in the city of Wichita, a spiritually historic moment in time took place.  At the Reconciliation Service, pastors repented and asked forgiveness for all spiritual, mental, and emotional wounds caused by them.  They said, “please forgive us for not leading by example, being ‘men pleasers’ rather than pleasers of God, for not equipping you adequately to fulfill your call and for building our own kingdom. We seek your forgiveness for times we have fallen into immorality, greed, and pride.  Will you forgive and release us from these sins and from bondage they have placed us in?” Then a member of the congregation, representing all of us, asked forgiveness for times we withheld tithes and offerings, gossiped about pastors and their families, times we had not stood up for you, times we opposed your ideas without cause and for not praying for you as we should. Time will not allow me to convey the depth of what I witnessed on Sunday evening.  God’s grace fell and freedom reigns.


It’s time for all believers to hit their knees in prayer and pick up their cell phones and call the number of those on the education committee, led by Rep. Ron Highland. On Friday, that committee will decide the fate of Common Core in Kansas and the future of our children. Public Schools in Kansas don’t need to be put into a cookie press to turn out little worker bees. 

We want good solid curriculum put together by Kansans.  Common Core is destructive in so many ways.

Have you checked out the way they want you to do math? 

It’s time to pray, and call.  Activate your prayer lines, and ask the Lord to stop Kansas from Common Core.  HB 2292 is a good bill, and endorsed with its strong constitutionality by our own Secretary of State Kris Kobach.  You can call your local representative and tell them HB 2292 needs to pass to save Kansas children. 

Our children are our most precious asset.

Go to for more information.

Statewide Holy Convocation

In order to truly see a change in a state, there are many things that have to happen.  In Kansas,  there have been decades of prayer warriors who have travailed over our historic land.  Now, we are at a moment in time when, we the present generation need to come together as one to declare Jesus as Lord over Kansas.

Our Goal:

We want Jesus to be greatly known, undeniably revealed, vastly followed and lavishly honored in Kansas.

We want you to save the date of May 30th for the Statewide Holy Convocation of Kansas.  It’s time for our generation to put the stake in the ground and dedicate Kansas to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. May 30th will be a historic day in Kansas. You’ll find more information at  We are asking a believer from each county to come and bring one gallon of soil to combine in a symbol of unity for believers across Kansas.  We want Kansans to care about what happens in our state.

KOBACH believes HB 2292 IS fully constitutional . . .

Exciting News Kansas Patriots!
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach sent out the attached letter calling for the immediate passing of HB 2292 – the Local Control of Kansas Education bill!  He addresses the complete Constitutionality of the bill and recommends it passes out of the Education Committee favorable.
For SOS Kobach to name the bill and call for its favorable passage goes way beyond the Constitutional issue.  He effectively takes away all the poor arguments and excuses being passed around by those that have said the bill was poorly written and unconstitutional.
 He would not call for passage of a poor bill and he would know because he has written and helped write some of the strongest Constitutional bills in Kansas like the 2nd Amendment Protection Act!


With your help, we can expel Common Core from Kansas schools and ensure our children grow up with an excellent educational system that puts children, teachers, and parents first.

Call these representatives immediately, and tell them it’s critical they support a strong HB 2292 bill now!

Please Tell Them To Wait!!!!


God is not the author of confusion.  When we pray sometimes the Lord says YES, sometimes He says NO and sometimes He says WAIT!

HR5 is a 600 page bill supposedly being voted on Friday.  CSN has been on the phone with D.C. and our representatives and they insist this is a good bill, and yet TODAY they say over 100 amendments will be discussed.

Then they insist they will vote on this on FRIDAY.  Is this Representative government?  I think not.  We do not want our representatives to take on the Pelosi attitude…..pass the bill and then we’ll find out what’s in it?  If it passes it goes to the Presidents desk, he signs it and it’s law…sound familiar????

Bottom line.

The federal government has no right to be in a states business when it comes to education.  Oh yes, there are billions in federal aid with many strings attached. CSN says WAIT.

By the way, the HSLDA does not support HR5.

Please call your representative and tell them you want them to WAIT until after the amendments are made.  This should take no longer than 10 minutes!!

“I don’t know what happened to America, the Shining City on the Hill for freedom.”

1. Chinese-American Mom Says Common Core Is Just Like Education in Communist China
November 30, 2014 

See her testimony below: 3 minutes 19 sec

Lily Tang Williams, a mother of three, testified before the Colorado State Board of Education that Common Core was similar to the education she received growing up in Mao’s Communist China.

“Common Core, in my eyes, is the same as the Communist core I once saw in China,” Williams said. “I grew up under Mao’s regime and we had the Communist-dominated education — nationalized testing, nationalized curriculum, and nationalized indoctrination.”

In a post at FreedomWorks, Williams wrote about her experience with the Chinese education system:

Our teachers had to comply with all the curriculum and testing requirements, or lose their jobs forever. Parents had no choice at all when it came to what we learned in school. The government used the Household Registration and Personnel File system to keep track of its citizens from birth to death.

“I came to this country for freedom and I cannot believe this is happening all over again in this country,” she said in the meeting. “I don’t know what happened to  America, the Shining City on the Hill for freedom.”

She said Americans should not compare their children (or their kids’ test scores) to those being educated under the Chinese system.

“I am telling you, Chinese children are not trained to be independent thinkers,” said Williams. “They are trained to be massive skilled workers for corporations. And they have no idea what happened in Tiananmen Square in 1989 where government ordered soldiers to shoot its own 1,000 students.”

Picture: Lily Williams in her Maoist Red Guard uniform

Williams said that while she understands that testing is necessary to improve education, top-down standards controlled by the federal government are not the answer: “Federal government holds the stick. International corporations hold the money.” She complained that students are offered this system of carrots and sticks by outside groups. Instead, she said, parents are supposed to control their children’s education.

“Individual rights. Individual liberty. That’s what I came to this country for,” Williams said. “Do you just want our kids to be test machines? Workers — cheap workers for corporations?” she asked the school board.

America is great. Don’t compare yourselves to China. That’s why lots of Chinese are trying to come here — to try to be free. And they all tell you, “Do not go after the Chinese Communist education.”

Williams said the Chinese system produces great test takers and great machine workers who are brainwashed and lack critical thinking skills. “I was brainwashed so bad it took me ten years in this country to get out of it,” she said.

My question is who is going to stop this! Are we going to continue to do what the Germans did and look on without opposing it? It appears so. 

Here are two others – teachers testimony (Teacher of the Year 2014 and another from NY):

Two short videos from dedicated teachers that you must see to understand from their perspective why Common Core must be stopped.

2. “Honored as the “Top Teacher”, Stacie Starr quits due to Common Core

Support the Local Control of Kansas Education Act (HB 2292)

“Honored as the “Top Teacher” by ABC’s “Live with Kelly and Michael” show, Stacie Starr was speaking at an education forum earlier this week when she dropped a bombshell.

The veteran teacher at Elyria High School in Elyria, Ohio, told a stunned audience Monday she will resign at the end of the school year because of the new federal Common Core system of standards and assessments adopted by her state, reported the local Chronicle-Telegram newspaper.

Stacie Starr

At the forum, which sought to help parents navigate the complex standardized testing system, Starr was talking about how special education has suffered under Common Core.

As she fought back tears, she disclosed she is leaving traditional education and plans ‘to teach in a different way.”

“I can’t do it anymore, not in this ‘drill ‘em and kill ‘em’ atmosphere,” she said. “I don’t think anyone understands that in this environment if your child cannot quickly grasp material, study like a robot and pass all of these tests, they will not survive.”

Don’t let this happen in Kansas!


3. New York teacher stands up for the children against Common Core abuse

A creative young mind and a great teacher are a terrible thing to waste.

Please watch the video below from a month ago in New York and ask yourselves just how long are we going to allow the child abuse of Common Core to continue to assault the children of Kansas?  Teachers like this one are being pressured by unions and administrators to keep their mouths shut and to just keep telling the lie so that they can keep the State and Federal funds flowing.  Thank God some are finally coming out to stop the abuse and to stand up for the children.  Will you stand up for the children of Kansas?  Will our legislators?

4. Brilliant anti-Common Core Speech by Dr. Duke Pesta (University English Professor)

Published on Apr 24, 2014 – Have you heard about Common Core? The chilling truth behind these new national educational “standards” will terrify you. Common Core represents the latest and most comprehensive step in the drive toward complete government control of our children’s education. Join us for a special presentation exposing the truth about Common Core and the ongoing struggle to roll back its implementation. Our speaker will provide examples of how Common Core threatens to further undermine, weaken, and centralize public and private education in our country.
