Moms and Dads Nationwide Unite for Prayer Rally At State Houses

Amid Growing Concerns Over Culture Influencing Children Parents Take Stand On Bended Knees

WASHINGTON, March 22, 2024 /BPALiveWire/ - In response to mounting concerns over the well-being and moral upbringing of children, mothers and fathers from coast to coast are gearing up for a nationwide prayer rally slated for April 13. The event, organized by a grassroots movement known as #DontMessWithOurKids, aims to unite families in prayer, fasting, and a collective stand for the protection of children.

Initiated by Jenny Donnelly, a mother from Portland, Oregon,#DontMessWithOurKids aims to address what many perceive as a crisis facing American families. Donnelly's vision extends beyond mere activism, she hopes to mobilize a million mothers and their families to convene at the nation's capital on October 12, 2024. This date, coinciding with the Day of Atonement in Israel, holds profound significance for those participating.

The rallying cry of #DontMessWithOurKids underscores a growing sentiment among Christian families that mainstream culture is increasingly at odds with their values. Concerns range from the influence of the LGBTQ+ movement in schools to the proliferation of explicit content, such as pornography, in educational settings. Mothers and fathers are also troubled by what is a societal shift toward gender confusion under the guise of “gender affirming care.”

Critical to the concerns expressed by mothers and fathers is a rejection of the prevailing cultural narrative that undermines Biblical values and Scripture. Additionally, in an era dominated by social media, parents are grappling with the influence of platforms like TikTok and Instagram, which can exacerbate issues related to body image, self-esteem, and self-confidence among adolescents.

A study conducted by the U.S. Surgeon General highlighted the adverse effects of social media on young people's mental health. According to the study, nearly half of adolescents aged 13-17 reported that social media made them feel worse about themselves, particularly concerning body image.

In light of these concerns, mothers like Donnelly are calling for a collective response grounded in faith and community. The upcoming prayer rally on April 13 serves as a precursor to larger-scale mobilizations in Washington, Dc.  On April 13 families across the nation will gather at their respective state capitols from 1-3 p.m.

As the April 13 prayer rally draws near, the message of #DontMessWithOurKids resonates with a diverse array of families, beyond racial, socio-economic and political divides. For many participants, this event represents not only a call to action but a reaffirmation of their commitment to safeguarding the innocence and well-being of future generations.
