Daily Devotional for Friday November 20, 2020
Over 90% of children in public school are NOT going to church and growing up in homes void of God!
(Psalms 127:3; Matthew 19:14; Psalms 34:11)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Please Lord, give me the strength that when tested, I will not be silent nor will I be afraid to tell YOUR TRUTH! Give me courage, give me strength, and let me stand strong for You no matter what the personal consequences! In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Abigail Shrier is the author of the 1 book right now, Irreversible Damage, a serious warning about the epidemic of young girls so mentally confused by this Godless culture that they think they are boys. The frightening thing is so many children and teens are very susceptible to peer pressure during these years. We are seeing groups of 3, 4, 5 young girls who are taking this wicked path together. The transformation starts with drugs and ultimately surgery. Shrier boldly warns about the life-changing decisions of those who buy into the transgender lie. I often talk about when I was growing up, elementary, junior, senior high school years, I had my faith affirmed in virtually every part of my life. Obviously it was affirmed at home. While not everyone in my classes went to the same church, virtually everyone went to some church. Faith was not taught in school, but it was clearly an understood foundation. My friends during those years and their families all went to church. Even in activities like band and sports, there was an aspect of faith. The entertainment of the day largely affirmed my faith. Fast forward to today. Very few kids are growing up with parents who are Christians so they don’t go to church and there is no faith in their home life. We know the schools today mock and demean the Christian faith. Most of their peers don’t go church. The entertainment of today is void of God. So growing up having their thoughts and beliefs shaped by a Godless society, their lack of faith is affirmed in every aspect of their life. This is how you get young girls making the choice to buy into the lie they are really a boy! The sad fact is, once they start down the road of transformation, obviously once any surgery is involved, their life is changed forever. As we deal with people who have been lost in this lie of transgenderism, many wake up one day and realize they have made horrible choices. While this book is not written from a faith perspective, it is a bold and serious warning about a sad byproduct of our Godless culture that is destroying lives. That shouldn’t be a shock since it is satan who came to “kill, steal, and destroy!!!”

Back in the mid '60s when I was in elementary school, I distinctly remember that only a very few kids in my class didn't go to church on Sunday. Well over 90% of my class went to church. Sadly, just 40 years later it is completely the opposite, with well over 90% of children in public school NOT going to church and growing up in homes void of God. We now have the better percentage of two full generations that do not go to church and that live their lives void of God. One of the ways to see that change is by reaching the children with the Truth of God's Word and the hope and love of Jesus Christ.
The reality is satan has infiltrated the schools with his lies. Lies that your child is gay. Lies that we evolved from pond scum. Lies that there is no God. Lies that there is no absolute right and wrong. Satan is a liar, the father of lies (John 8:44), and he has done a masterful job at telling his lies to YOUR CHILDREN from the moment they step into school, and reinforcing those lies 24/7 through every vehicle possible. Due to the fact most kids are growing up in homes void of God, they are RARELY being exposed to the Truth at all.
Liveprayer is an instrument of God to bring His Truth to the masses. We have been doing that for over 22 years here on the Internet, now reaching well over 2.5 million people worldwide every day. The fact is that over these past 50 years, satan has erected huge walls around the public schools of this nation. Prayer has been removed and so has Bible teaching. Now the existence of God is mocked, tortured, and impossible theories of how we came to exist are being taught as fact, right and wrong are what you decide they are, and perverted lifestyles are being presented as normal and acceptable. Like the walls of Jericho, these are huge, solid walls that look impossible to tear down. Like the walls of Jericho, God is able to bring them down!
This is critical, since reaching the children for Christ is a major component to seeing this nation turn back to God and Biblical principles. Satan is not shy about going after the children, so why are the people of God? Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through those promoting the homosexual lifestyle. Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through the cults that openly proselytize in schools. Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through the curriculum that is in direct opposition to God and the Truth. Satan goes after YOUR CHILDREN through exposing them to every type of evil and perversion known to man. If satan is so bold in going after the souls of YOUR CHILDREN, why should the people of God be any less bold?
My friend, now is the time to go to war for the hearts, minds, and souls of our children. We have sat back long enough. There is no more time for playing games. While we have been busy building buildings, preaching to ourselves, and enjoying the peace and prosperity of living in this great country, the enemy has been busy these past 40 years insuring that he could control the hearts and minds of the children. Most children are not being raised in homes that honor God or His Son Jesus, and we have simply left them to the enemy. NO MORE! It is time to go fight for the souls of these children!
I love you and care about you so much. God's way is for the children to learn the Scriptures and to be nurtured in the faith at home. With so many parents who have rejected Christ and His Truth, that of course is not happening. I will continue to pray for you moms and dads out there. Over and over I have spoken directly to you how critical your job is in raising their children in the admonition of the Lord. Nothing you do in this life will be as important!
I want you to know that I am praying for you today as God gives you wisdom, direction, and strength in the raising of your children and helping to lay that foundation of faith in their lives. There is no more evil in the world today than in the past, it is just more visible and much more accessible. Today more than ever, you need to be diligent in what your children are being exposed to, so that you can insure they know what is right and what is wrong, what is from God and what is designed to harm or even destroy them.
I am committed more than ever to using the increasing reach of Liveprayer to bring His Truth and love to even more people each day. Perhaps no group in this nation is more isolated and blocked from receiving that truth than the kids who go to public schools. I realize that there is nothing anyone can do to stop the lies from being told in the schools, just like there is nothing that can be done to stop the lies being told in the marketplace every day. But just like we aggressively and boldly bring the Truth of God into the marketplace every day, we are determined to take the Truth of God into the public schools so that the children are a least being exposed to the hope and love of Jesus Christ.
For this season, satan is loose. During this brief time, he is out to drag as many souls as he can into the place God created for him to suffer for all eternity. In the end, each person is responsible for their choice to accept or reject Jesus Christ as their Savior. Our job, as followers of Christ, is to bring the Gospel to each person so they clearly understand the eternal consequences of that choice. For too long, children and young adults in public schools have not had the benefit of hearing both sides. We are committed to taking Jesus to the children and young adults in the public schools and making sure they do!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
