Weekly Watch Focus: Bind Violence in Our Cities

FRIDAY, Aug 19, 2016—As we have seen recently, even in Milwaukee, the rates of violence, anarchy, and murder have gone up astronomically in our cities in the U.S. It is important that we pray for God’s continued peace and supernatural shalom to reign over the cities in our entire nation. Pray especially for the cities hardest hit such as Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, and Milwaukee, as well as your own city. Bind the spirits of violence, division, and hate that are preying on the hearts and minds of our nation. Agree for deliverance for those bound in gang cultures and addiction. Pray that young gang members will find Christ and be filled with the Father’s love. Bind terror attacks. Pray for your city, welcoming Holy Angels of God to guard every neighborhood. Pray for wisdom for our civic and government leaders. May they use their influence for calm and healing and not for stirring up further division, anger, and hate. Pray for the Lord to raise up leaders in the cities who are anointed with His wisdom and authority to bring peace. Pray for the churches in your city to welcome the Holy Spirit and be awakened to bring city-wide revival and transformation.

Let us cover the police officers who are primarily responsible to keep peace and order in our cities. May they have supernatural angelic protection. Pray especially for the families of police officers who have lost their lives carrying out their duties. Pray that our nation would have spiritual awakening, and may God heal our land. Let us continue to appreciate, honor, and pray for our local law enforcement forces.


Jer. 29:7, “And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.”

Jer. 31:16, 17, “Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears; for your work shall be rewarded, says the Lord, and they shall come back from the land of the enemy. There is hope in your future, says the Lord, that your children shall come back to their own border.”

Col 2:15, “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”

2 Sam. 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.”

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

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