Weekly Watch Focus: Pray for Orlando

Friday, June 17, 2016, Please pray for the grieving families who lost loved ones last Saturday night in Orlando, Florida. A radical Islamist terrorist massacred 49 innocent club-goers and wounded many more in the largest mass-shooting in modern U.S history.

First, let us pray for all those who lost precious loved ones, and ask for the healing of those wounded in the shooting—several grievously. Secondly, pray that the FBI and Homeland Security will be able to track down and stop other planned jihadi attacks in Europe, Israel, Nigeria, Iraq, and other nations that have endured these constant terror attacks against civilians. Third, pray that our nation will be delivered from political correctness and the fear of negative comments about radical Islam, which is an ongoing threat to all Christian nations. May safe zones be successfully established in the Middle East where refugees from violence can seek shelter.

As a nation we grieve for the innocents slain in Orlando. Pray comfort for the hurting families, and courage to confront the threats from radical Islamic terrorists. Let us hedge America with renewed prayer. May all citizens be free to gather or travel without fear of terrorist violence. Also pray for the peace of Jerusalem and security and peace for all Israelis.
Finally, bind the demonic spirit of Anti-Christ that is at the root of violent, Islamic terrorism. May every knee bow in the name of Jesus Christ. Declare the Lordship of Jesus Christ whose glory and power annihilates every principality and power. Let us plead the blood of the Lamb over our families, churches, cities, and nation.   

Psalm 91:1-5, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust. Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day.”

John 14:16-17, “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”

Psalm 91; Psalm 30:5; Psalm 23:4; Psalm 21:1; Psalm 9:9; Rev. 12:11


Part II: Honor our Fathers

Identity comes from Fatherhood, starting with Father God. He’s our Heavenly Father who gave us His son so all who believe may be saved. Cultural elites continue to disdain the place of fathers in our present day society, including our Founding Fathers. Let us pray for restoration of fathers and fatherhood in our nation. May fatherhood, natural and spiritual, be truly honored and appreciated in our land. Pray healing for broken family relationships. Bless pastors and fathers in the Church.
Eph. 4:6, There is one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Eph. 6:1-3, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise: that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”

Gen. 18:19; Mal. 4:5,6; Psalm 68:5; John 3:16
