Crime in America
Cities in America and across the world are continuing to be impacted by spikes in crime and hatred. Violent crime and hate crimes are on the rise. As God’s mighty intercessory army, we stand in the gap to see this violence come to an end.
Lord, we declare as watchmen, “Not in this city, not in this region!” We stand guard for righteousness at the gates of our cities, binding the wicked spiritual forces behind this rise of crime. Restore the foundations of law and order. We agree for deliverance from demonic forces for those bound in evil and hatred and pray they be set free and be filled with the love of the Father. Deliver those who sit in darkness. May peace reign in our cities. We pray for a secure border to stop the traffic of drugs and gangs flowing into our nation. May our federal and local law enforcement have success and divine protection.
We pray for a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Lord, release a great awakening that will transform us at every level, including our government and media. May awesome signs, wonders, miracles, and deliverances demonstrate the power of the gospel. Holy Spirit, breathe on the church again with Your glory.
We bind back the evil spirits of rebellion, anti-Semitism, witchcraft, and murder. We bind back terror and bind all who plot the destruction or harm of America and the nations. Lord, we humble ourselves before You, our King. We declare Your glory and Your lordship as King over all the earth. LET GOD ARISE, LET HIS ENEMIES BE SCATTERED!
Jeremiah 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.”
Colossians 2:15, “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”
Isaiah 9:2, “The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.”
Psalm 107:13-14, “Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, And broke their chains in pieces.”
Psalms 85:6, “Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?”
Joel 2:28-29, "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. Even on the male and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit.”
Acts 4:29-33, “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness. Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.”
Psalm 68:1-2, “Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him. As smoke is driven away, So drive them away; As wax melts before the fire, So let the wicked perish at the presence of God.”
