NEVADA MAYOR TRIES, AND FAILS, TO STOP DRAG QUEEN STORYTIME

Father God, draw us and our fellow Americans to You. Do the work that only You can do in reviving us and those around us. Embolden us, like this mayor, to speak up for what's right and against what is wrong.

(You have read on Headline Prayer about Drag Queen Storytimes. What is interesting about this excerpt is that an elected official tried to oppose the storytime. Pray for this mayor and for elected officials and concerned parents and citizens who do not think these kinds of storytimes are a beneficial use of taxpayer dollars. The picture is of one of the two drag queens scheduled to read at the Sparks Library.)

Sparks Mayor Ron Smith says he is against Drag Queen Story Hour and worked to get the children’s event at the Sparks Library on Saturday canceled.

It is the first time Drag Queen Story Hour, a nationwide program that started in San Francisco in 2015, will be held in Northern Nevada.

The event for children ages 3-8 will have two local drag queens reading stories, answering questions and posing for pictures.

“It doesn’t make any sense to  me,” said Smith, who was elected mayor of Sparks in 2018. Previously, Smith was a long-serving member of the city council.

Pray about the sexualization of our children with our prayer resource: The Sexual Identity Crisis in America.

Washoe County Library Director Jeff Scott, who has been at the helm of the library since 2015, said Smith’s concerns are unwarranted.

“It is storytime like any other storytime,” Scott said.

Smith said he reached out to Scott and County Commissioner Vaughn Hartung about stopping the event. Hartung has not immediately returned a request for comment.

“They told me there is nothing they can do,” Smith said.

The Nevada Family Alliance, a conservative group, has used social media to encourage people to contact the library and “urge them to stop this use of public funds to promote a controversial lifestyle.”

Scott said the event will not be canceled. He told the Reno Gazette Journal in June, “I am happy that we can provide events like these for our community.”

  1. Abba, we REPENT of the apathy of the Christian church–the Body of Christ–that should have risen up in righteous indignation in the past, but they sat comfortably lulled to sleep by a social gospel and an attitude that it is the pastor’s job to win souls. For only with a change in a person’s eternal destination can their path in this world be changed, and so many need Jesus. We ask You, Lord, to strengthen Mayor Smith and the Nevada Family Alliance and we ask You to open the eyes of the populace to the dangers of what they are permitting. We ask for a spirit of repentance to fall on the Christians in this nation and in Nevada this week and we ask for a miracle so that this travesty at the library does not happen. In Jesus Name Amen.

  2. LORD God,
    We pray Your divine protection over the children, that You would prevent them from being exposed to wickedness.
    May the fear of God fall on everyone who attempts to corrupt these little ones, and may they turn from the darkness of evil and come to the light of Jesus.
    In His holy name we ask for Your intervention. Amen

  3. Father God….. as our hearts criy…..we know Yours does too…..thank you for the Boldness of the mayor and others who feel this is not right…..while we pray for them let us not forget to pray for those who are trying to change our society…..that their hearts and spirits be changed and they heed to and do Your ways…..Ezekiel 36:25-27……we thank you that you make all things work for good for those that love You…..Romans8:28…..and that our hearts too expand in You ……we rest in Your Promises…..and Thank You for working Mightily in all your children……whoever and wherever they are……

  4. Lord Jesus,
    Thank you for this mayor and for giving him the courage to stand for what is right in your eyes and not care what society or the culture thinks. Please bless him abundantly and I pray your protection over his mind and body.
    May these lost souls have the scales removed from their eyes so they can see how you beautifully created each of them in your image. May Christians show the love of Christ and give the lost hope in You! And I pray for these children that are being exposed at such a young age to such confusion. Lord, we pray you will fight on their behalf against the enemy’s schemes. For the fight is not against flesh and blood but the spiritual realm. I pray this country turns back to you Lord Jesus, forgive us our sins. We know not what we do..Amen
