I have about had it with the media. We are watching those who consider themselves the mind molders of society creating news, instead of reporting it. “News” is another name for “opinion” these days. It was bad before January of this year, but it is now off the charts. Instead of reporting facts, bits of facts are being pulled out and put back together again to make a new “truth”. “Wait,” you say. “What about those videos?” Slice them, dice them, and add whatever narrative you like. America is watching. Is America believing?
“The righteous hate what is false, but the wicked make themselves a stench and bring shame on themselves.” (Proverbs 13:5; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Ask God to give you His spirit of discernment as you listen to or read the news. Don’t just accept it! You might need to do some research to see if what was reported was what actually happened, or if the reported motivation was right.
Intercede for the news reporters who are mocking and obviously false reporting. They may not know the Lord. Pray that they are convicted of their wicked ways and that they meet Truth Himself.
Declare that America deserves truth from the media. Keep calling for Truth!
It is time to take the media to task. If every Believer wrote just one letter or email to a major news service or news personality that is altering the news, it might make an impact.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, we are getting very weary of news we cannot trust! We want to stay informed, but we need Holy Spirit to help us! Help us filter everything we hear and read through Your gift of discernment. Show us where to go to find a truthful media source. God, we passionately pray for those reporting our news, whether they report live or in print. Introduce them to Your Son, Jesus, Truth Incarnate. May they bow their knee before You, repent and turn from their wicked ways. We call for truth in the media! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
We decree that God will straighten out the crookedness in the nature of the current media. The Church will pray and act, and the nation will see truth in media again soon!
