Oh, Lord, convict Your people of their wrong alignment with the social norms of political correctness, involving inclusiveness, universalism, pluralism. We see from almost every passage quoted in this STUDY that Jesus/Yeshua was a total nonconformist– the very opposite of political correctness. He said He is the only way; this is so counter to what society, and even many people who identify as “Christians” believe.

I pray that Your people’s eyes would be opened and the blinders taken off; that they would repent for making wrong agreements and joining in with the social standards of the day, instead of aligning with Your standards. I pray You will bring revelations that will convict many and bring them to full repentance whereby they will change their ways. 

Bring to the attention of Your people (who say they are Yours), that if they are professing to have surrendered their lives to You, Your Word clearly spells out what that entails, for Jesus/Yeshua said we must be willing to forsake ALL, even family, to follow Him: “Let the dead bury their own dead. But you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God. No one who has put his hand to the plow and looked back is fit for the kingdom of God” (Lk.9:60-62). We must be willing to give up all to follow YOU (Mk.8:34,35); “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for My name’s sake, will receive a hundred times as much, and will inherit eternal life” (Matt.19:29). Oh, Lord, Your people, as a whole, are so far removed from living this out . .. . I pray You will intervene, and call them to make themselves right with You.

It especially grieves my heart (and I know it grieves Yours, for You have shown me this) that so many of those who call themselves children of God, will be so frightfully unprepared for what is to come as the last days progress into the reality of the coming tribulation for if they cannot walk in Your Truth now, and need to be politically correct even when times are not yet that severe, how on earth are they going to make it when, as Jesus/Yeshua warned us, “when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles” (Matt.13:21); we will be persecuted for His sake; that if people hated Him, they would most likely be hated also  (Matt.10:22;24:10; John 15:18). Surely those who are not grounded now, will certainly not make it through.

I pray for a fresh fire to come down upon these lukewarm, politically correct, one-foot-in-the-world “christians,” that will bring them in line with Your will and Your ways, and Your walk. I pray for an awakening of the call to walk as Jesus/Yeshua walked – in righteousness and holiness – to become more like YOU, Jesus/Yeshua with each passing day, not just apathetically aligning with the ways of the world.

Father, shake your people up! There is so much complacency. So much erroneous reliance on YOUR GRACE, that it has been taken out of context, cheapened by being taken for granted, misapplied, misappropriated. Would You whap these complacent sleeping believers over the head with a spiritual two-by-four and cause them to awaken to their erroneous ways. 

Teach Your people to “speak the truth, in love” (Eph.4:15), instead of giving in to political correctness, social pressures,and persecution.

I pray these things in Jesus/Yeshua’s Name. Amen.
