Weekly Watch Focus: Pray for France and the French Elections

FRIDAY, April 21, 2017—The first round of French presidential elections takes place this Sunday, April 23. Europe is grappling with how to respond to the rise of radical jihadi terrorists and the surge of refugees from Syria and other areas overrun by ISIS. Many say this election will determine not only France’s future, but will be a bellweather for the direction of Europe for generations to come.

One of the more recent issues has been that EU member states have been forced to receive hundreds of thousands of new immigrants, most without papers, originating from the Middle East and North Africa. This has resulted in increased levels of terror attacks, violent crimes, and great economic burdens within the host countries. This is a critical time of decision-making for France. Pray that God will guide the upcoming decision. Pray for protection for candidates and voters. Just this week, French authorities have already thwarted planned bombings of campaign events. Pray that the French people will have divine wisdom to vote for the candidate that will keep their nation safe and prosperous. Pray for leaders who will stand with Israel.

We remember fellow believers who are oppressed and tortured for Christ’s sake. In communist China, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and other parts of the word, violent radicals or oppressive communism continue to persecute and even murder Christians.
We thank God and pray for our law enforcement. We ask the Lord for their safety and guidance as the carry out their duties with integrity.
As our children return to school, we cover them in prayer. Whether they attend public school, private school, home school, or college, we pray a special anointing over them.
There is a declaration of war in our culture against the identity of our children. Our foundational values and the preservation of identity for individuals and families through Christ as the building block of society is under attack.
Pray for financial recovery from what many economists are calling a recession. We humbly pray for a healthy economy and that integrity would be restored in leadership.
