Let’s Pray for Unity between Homosexuality & Spirituality
Homosexuality and Spirituality, can they really coexist? Yes of course they can because Who we are has nothing to do with our sexual preferences or personal genders. We are so much more than that.
Same sex marriages
Homosexuality raised it’s head again last year when the law for same sex marriage was passed. This has caused a split within the Christian religion. Some sectors agree to marry. Others won’t marry but will refer men and women to another church. Many are still totally against it, and even condemn it.
I can understand the concerns of many parents, and mature adults as they watch our youth go through the struggle with their sexuality, drug addictions, mental health issues and suicide. It certainly does look as if many of our youth have lost their way.

Finding their own way
What if these young people (and older for that matter) have to lose their way to find a way that works for them. What if the programming they receive at an early age is robbing them of the freedom to discover who they are for them selves?
Overcoming the judgements
This means we need to stop asking for our kids to change. Stop asking our kids to be saved. Instead, we adults need to ask for help to stop projecting our private agenda, our personal and collective beliefs and fears upon them. Sease praying for our homosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender kids to be healed. Instead pray for them to overcome the judgements imposed upon them.
Freedom from old-age programming
We need to pray for our young to become free of the ancestral hand-me-downs and the influences surrounding them. Let them choose to build a relationship (or not) with God, in their own unique way. Let’s pray that they find the freedom to live as they choose. If we want to help our kids we have to bring the roots that drive drug addiction, mental illness and suicide into the light to be resolved and dissolved. Through faith, we give our kids a better chance to grow free of drugs and bugs, and to enjoy more of the sweet fruits of life.
We need to teach our kids how to think, not what to think. Instead of praying for what we want for them, why wouldn’t we listen to what is important for them. As we allow them tap into their own heart, they will be better and more genuinely influenced. Let’s take a lesson from our children because they don’t judge their little friends – not until we teach them. Don’t we need to pray for the judgers, to let go of what they want and what they think is right, and allow God to guide our young independently of us?
Looking through the eyes of faith instead of fear
Offer prayers for all those doing the judging and rejecting to be saved from them self, to be healed and forgiven? I ask for them to be freed from the constricts of their own minds I pray that we are all able to see our kids and their situation in a new light. Let’s work together to look through the light of love and faith instead of fear.
As we pray and give thanks for the freedom of our youth today (from a place of faith instead of fear), we too become free and the war is over.
Isn’t this what Jesus would do?
