Weekly Watch Focus: Ferguson and Our Inner Cities

FRIDAY, August 22, Pray for Ferguson, Missouri where rioting, looting, and racial turmoil have reigned for several days since the shooting of young, Michael Brown by a policeman. Pray for God’s peace and calm to return to Ferguson. May the Spirit of God bring Shalom over this city, and many other cities in the U.S. where violence and death have become a regular occurrence, taking the lives of many young people. Bind the forces that would create havoc and racial division in our society. May Jehovah Rapha bring healing to Ferguson, and comfort to the Brown family. May the Lord give grace and favor to the peacemakers. May His wisdom guide those law-enforcement agencies appointed to see order, peace, and justice restored.  Pray for the youth in our inner cities. May they have long-term breakthrough in educational opportunities and training leading to good jobs. May prosperity be restored to these areas so the young have hope for their future. May Father God heal the broken heart and restore Fatherhood back in our nation. 

2 Chron. 7:14, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Ezek. 37:1-4,” The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.”  Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!’”

Luke 4:18, ” “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.”

Ps. 85:6; Acts 3:19-21; Jer. 31:15-17; Isa. 40:1-10; Exod. 33:19.
