Weekly Watch Focus: Pray for Dallas

Friday, July 8, 2016—Five Dallas police officers were killed and seven others wounded Thursday night when sniper fire turned a peaceful demonstration into a scene of terror and murder.  Let us as a nation pray for the city of Dallas that peace and calm would settle over this city. Let us remember to pray God’s comfort for the grieving families and for the recovery of the wounded, some critically.

It is important that we pray for God’s continued peace and supernatural shalom to reign over the cities in our entire nation. Our police officers are primarily responsible to keep the peace and carry out our laws. May they have supernatural angelic protection during theses warm days of summer.

The Bible says, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” May the voices of the peacemakers guide the nation at this time. Let us bind the voices of dissension, violence, division, and hate. May our political and civic leaders use their influence for calm and healing and not for stirring up further division, anger, and hate. We want to pray also for the families of Alton Sterling and Philandro Castile who died in encounters with police that turned violent. 

Some studies indicate that tensions and the direction of officials have created zones where police are cautious to even enter, making these places increasingly dangerous for innocent civilians susceptible to gang and drug connected violence. May the police forces of our nation be strengthened to carry out their full duties. Pray that our nation have spiritual awakening, and may God heal our land. Let us continue to appreciate and honor and pray for our local law enforcement forces.

2 Samuel 22:3-4, “The God of my strength, in whom I will trust;   my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge;  my Savior, You save me from violence. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;  so shall I be saved from my enemies.” 

Psalm 46:1, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

Isaiah 41:10; Psalm 91:1-3; Psalm 121:7-8; Psalm 138:7; Deut. 31:6; 2 Cor. 12:9; 2 Thess. 3:3; James 4:7
