Pray have prayed
Lord, thank You for stopping the OSHA vaccine mandates over private employees through the recent Supreme Court decision. Please protect the liberties of all citizens from coercive mandates and have mercy on those who are still subject to vaccine mandates.

Prayer for numerous court cases outlined below are building momentum for an end to vaccine mandates as they advance throughout the United States judiciary branch—challenging the right of the federal government to mandate Covid vaccines to over 100 million Americans who must choose between taking an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Vaccine or lose their job.  These vaccine mandates are having dramatic impacts on every sector of our economy, including healthcare workers, federal contractors, federal government workers, military service members, private employees, and businesses.  As a result, average citizens around the world are marching in record numbers on their nations’ capitals to demand an end to mandates.

On January 23, 2022, two days after the March for Life in Washington, D.C., a “Defeat the Mandates – an American Homecoming” march and rally will start at 11:30 AM EST at the Washington Monument and proceed to the Lincoln Memorial, where featured speakers, artists, and musicians will seek to carry this momentum forward.  Organizers hope that  “Defeat the Mandates – an American Homecoming” will help bring about new federal, state, and local policies to eliminate the blatant discrimination and censorship currently taking place.

Thanks to your support and prayer, in December IFA filed an Amicus Brief in this most recent Supreme Court case to challenge the Biden Administration’s ability to force vaccine mandates on over 100 million Americans.  We were joined by several other organizations in this brief.

This Thursday, thankfully, the Supreme Court weighed in, upholding a restraining order, temporarily stopping the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) from requiring private businesses with more than 100 employees to vaccinate their employees in compliance with the new OSHA rules. On a more challenging note for our frontline healthcare workers, the court ruled separately in a 5-4 decision that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), under the Department of Health and Human Services, has the authority to mandate vaccines for healthcare workers across the country.

The following lower court case had put pressure on the Supreme Court to act. They extended a temporary restraining order nationwide that prevented the Biden Administration from mandating vaccines to healthcare workers.  Judge Terry A. Doughty presided over STATE OF LOUISIANA ET AL CASE NO. 3:21-CV-03970 VERSUS XAVIER BECERRA ET AL HHS from the United States District Court, Western District of Louisiana, Monroe Division.

The case that initially stopped OSHA from being able to force private employers with over 100 employees to mandate vaccines was BST Holdings, LLC v OSHA, decided in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Shortly thereafter, the 6th District Court of Appeals determined that the court could not extend the restraining order nationally, which led the Supreme Court to take the case.

On a sad note, over the past several months we have witnessed record numbers of Americans quitting their jobs in response to these mandates as they are forced between accepting a vaccine or termination.

IFA has conducted a regular prayer call on Tuesday and Saturday evenings to End Vaccine Mandates that impact over 100 million employees and their employers.  In addition, millions of Americans have been praying to be free of the tyranny of mandates. We have learned something crucial during this time. The Executive Branch wields great power to coerce millions of Americans into an “experimental use authorization” Covid vaccine or be forced to leave their employment against their will.

The good news is we are seeing our prayers answered as recent court cases have protected federal contractors and federal government workers. Another case is pending to protect over 27,000 military service members who thus far have refused a vaccine and are at risk of being discharged from the military.

Military service members seeking relief from vaccine mandates are counting on the case, Navy SEAL 1 v. Biden, in which Florida federal judge Steven Merryday ordered each branch of the military to file a detailed report regarding the number of religious exemptions each branch of the military grants every 14 days beginning with Friday, January 7, 2022.

The filings received by the court last week show that out of 21,342 requests received, zero exemptions have been granted, and many have been denied at the final appeal stage. The reports confirm Liberty Counsel’s argument that the religious exemptions are a ruse and every request will be denied.

You can read the detailed report by the nonprofit legal defense organization, Liberty Counsel, which has been litigating this case on behalf of military service members.

This case should not be confused with a recent successful challenge to military vaccine mandates under a similar title, Navy Seal v. Biden, which was decided in favor of 35 service members including members of the Navy Seals, to protect their individual rights to religious exemption from vaccination. This case protects 35 service members, whereby Navy Seal 1 v. Biden seeks a class action ruling for all service members.  

Federal contractors were granted a restraining order from forced vaccinations on December 7, 2021.  On that day, Judge R. Stan Baker from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia (in the case titled, THE STATE OF GEORGIA, et al., Plaintiffs, v. JOSEPH R. BIDEN) issued a nationwide injunction of the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate for federal contractors.  This mandate was originally issued on September 9, 2021, through Executive Order 14042 (EO 14042). This impacts millions of employees who are employed by thousands of  federal contractors.

Federal government workers were granted a key decision protecting their religious exemption rights in the case of Church v. Biden. Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly in this case rendered a court order that, “Agencies may not initiate the (vaccine) enforcement process for employees who have not received an exemption or form whom the agency is not considering an exemption request.” Plaintiffs seeking an exemption from receiving any COVID-19 vaccine due to a sincerely held religious belief will not lose their jobs while their request is pending.

Praise God for His answer to our prayers and allowing us to see this momentum build to end mandates! To join in the IFA Prayer Call to End Vaccine Mandates every Tuesday and Saturday evening at 8:30 – 9:00 PM EST, dial 667-771-7910 access code 2452#. We will continue to pray that every court order is made permanent and relief from mandates is granted to every Military service member, healthcare worker, Federal government employee and every American impacted by these coercive mandates.  We pray for those who have lost jobs as well as those who are facing mandate deadlines.

Lord, for the many workers who have already chosen to quit their jobs, to those whose company administrators have decided to eliminate employees on their own by changing company policy to terminate those unwilling to comply with vaccinations and to those who will eventually lose their jobs because of their inability to bring a lawsuit against their employers, I PRAY for PROVISION and RESTITUTION of what has been (or will be) lost ! We patiently await the justice, the righteous justice that needs to occur to right the wrongs upon the citizens of this nation. Restore to them a double portion ! Only by Your Mighty and most Powerful Authority can we see this accomplished, Father God, through the most Holy Name of Jesus Christ. Amen !

Thank you Jesus! for this victory! we claim the ultimate victory in this battle! i am also thankful to hear that God is using covid and these mandates by people being forced out of comfortable corporate situations and into the radical alternative natural medicine they’ve been dreaming of starting! God is using what the enemy means for evil! This is the making of God’s people. Micah chapter 4! He is raising up His army to carry the Glory of God to the ends of the earth!

Heavenly Father I thank you for this recent Supreme Court decision to stop the OSHA mandate. I pray you will continue to shine a light on the truth about the vaccine’s effectiveness and risks so that the American people can make truly informed decisions. I pray for an end to these ineffective and burdensome mandates for masks, lockdowns and social distancing so that we may have normal human interactions again, especially for the sake of our children.

In Jesus name,
Amen!

Please to everyone. Please stop calling it a vaccine we know by proper definition it is not as does not provide immunity or protection. By using same definition as world it gives a false sense of protection. Please have courage/conviction to call it what it is a experimental gene therapy. On another note praying Psalms 91:8 Biblical justice esp for the military/heath care workers right now. And wisdom, courage and provision for those who have already lost jobs.

I will continue to pray that the shot mandate will be stopped and give everyone the choice to take the shot or not. Father, thank you for intervening in this court battle and other court battles that are against your way of doing things. You give all of us the right to choose and pray that our President will see that it should be a personal choice and not be forced to take the shot.

Father God, I pray that the mandates being imposed on any citizen be halted. Please Father, protect us from those who are putting others in harm’s way with demanding this unvetted and potentially dangerous vaccine. Please Father, protect us from all life-threatening diseases and actions from others. I pray in Jesus Name. Amen

Brethren; most of our professional licensing boards will refuse to renew our licenses unless we’re jabbed.

Despite meeting all the requirements based on demonstrated professional skill and completing continuing education, despite the professional approval of supervisors, and meeting or exceeding professional standards, one can now be denied professional license to practice solely based on vaccination status. THIS IS WRONG. And science is of course on our side.

Please pray that God’s will be done for each Christian professional, be it standing for principles of justice against this in the field or for leaving their jobs to be called to a different calling.

It’s HIS Kingdom. If we’re to remain in our professions, let it be to serve the Lord only. Yet should we loose our jobs, let’s trust God to speak out new purpose to us.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has declared a resistance against the NWO Globalist Luciferian agenda. America IS the tip of the spear for she IS ordained of YHVH GOD to stand firm in HIM and turn the tide of diabolical infiltration to restore our Constitutional Republic.

Please study and share both essays that speak to the satanic deception that has blanketed the planet. We WILL be victorious as long as we respond in prayer with fasting, and action that makes ALL of our voices heard here in the earth and in the heavens.

Pleas continue to pray for those who work in health care and related industries (such as govt-funded child care) who are still having our Constitutional rights violated because the CMS vaccine mandate was not overturned. I am one of many who do not intend to violate my conscience and my body by introducing the poisonous COVID vaccine into my body anymore. It is upsetting that supposedly the Constitution supports the rights of American workers who work for private businesses, but it does not support the rights of those of us who work in healthcare and related, government-funded industries. Thank you!

    Sue, it is heartbreaking that the court did not protect the healthcare workers from this poison. I would say to all the workers to ask God to send them a new job even if it’s OUT of that field because God is revealing the truth about ALL these entities and maybe He wants His people to COME OUT of it! The whole world is about to change by the Hand of God so look up for the GLORY is coming for Jesus to be lifted up! Hold the line and keep YOUR DNA that God gave you!!

Please know there is much yet to be done. Just because corporations and businesses over 100 won’t be required to mandate, doesn’t mean they won’t. Many of these corporations (large, well-known names like the one I was just terminated from this week) have so bought into the leftist propaganda and have been champions of it for so long, that they are not dropping their own policies (which are essentially copies of the Biden mandate) and forcing people to choose between their jobs and their integrity anyway. I could not be forced to wear my vaccine status on my face everyday and be denied the same privaleges (such as eating and using conference rooms) because I didn’t follow the crowd. Tenure or background doesn’t seem to make any difference to them either. 13 years with them as a microbiologist, 8 Years experience in biological pharmaceuticals in vaccine development. It’s not and has never been about science. It is a spiritual battle against evil. So don’t rest on your laurels. It is not done yet. God will win. But more people need to rise up and take hold of the victory.

I cant figure out WHY the Suprene Court will not make a ruling for HEALTHCARE WORKERS and MILITARY…This Mandate is just that…a Mandate..not Law..If the Supreme Court does not rule this UNCONSTITUTIONAL… then the U.S.A. has give up its FREEDOMS and RIGHTS given to us by God our Father…We ate reminded…EACH and EVERY DAY when you purchase something…its is “emblazened” on our coin and currency..in which our founders had meant to be…God is to be first and foremost..the reminder….”In God We Trust”…He is the ruling One…The U.S.A., our government and the Supreme Court… MUST REMEMBER..where WE ALL HAVE FAILED….TO PUT OUR TRUST IN GOD…NOT A MAN… All in all..like “The Book” says…..God wins..!

Is this just a temporary stay?

On another good note I received a call from Britt at IFA on Thurs Jan 13th asking
if we have any prayer needs. I said yes I did. Just getting over Covid and last Monday
I was in such pain I had to go to the ER here in Beloit, WI. Found out that I have lots
of blood clots in my lungs. So we prayed and the last two days I fell much better PTL !

Thank you Britt and all the Prayer warriors at IFA.

While jobs are being lost because of this mandate, I know that God has something better for us because we are having our backs up against the wall and God will be victorious.

I recently read a very encouraging post by Dutch Sheets regarding God’s victory:

My husband lost his desk job with United Airlines because of the mandate. He applied for a medical exemption concerning blood clotting but was denied. We have been praying ever since for the reversal of the mandate though big businesses probably will not care. I don’t understand why this is not considered discrimination as my husband is a well qualified man of integrity who always performed throughout his flying career with honor. Our prayers should be now to reveal the true motives behind all the failures concerning Covid so those of us who have worked hard and done what is right concerning our dealings with government over our lifetimes, can pass on that confidence in integrity to our families.
Why should anyone trust a man like Fauci who used out Lord’s Name in vain while calling a Senator a “moron” under his breath. For me, that iis evidence of his evil heart. He basically is cursing our nation so in Jesus’ Name , I pray all that is hidden in darkness will be exposed to the Light …God is just. In Jesus’ Name, strike down the powers that have deceived through fear and cover this nation under the authority of Jesus, our King.
