The Arizona State Capitol will remain closed as officials fear more violent pro-choice protests. We must pray for peace and unity.

From The Daily Wire. This week, the Arizona State Capitol will remain closed off with two lines of fencing and razor wire to protect the area from any future pro-abortion protesters.

Have you taken your place on the wall?


The Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) requested the Arizona National Guard install razor wire to existing fencing after the rioting and destruction that occurred at the capitol last Friday and Saturday. The protests occurred in response to the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) ruling overturning a constitutional right to abortion, fully entrusting abortion law to the states.

On Friday, AZDPS estimated around 7,000 to 8,000 pro-abortion protestors flocked to the Arizona State Capitol Complex; some of the mob attempted to breach the Arizona Senate building. The Arizona Senate was in session at the time, undertaking a historic vote to universalize the state’s school choice program.

AZDPS described the force of the mob as so great that it shook the Senate building and bent glass windows and doors. Protesters also vandalized the collection of war memorials surrounding the capitol. Senate Republicans estimated that current damages cost over $10,000….

“The violence of their efforts literally shook the building and terrified citizens and lawmakers who occupied the building. As the glass doors bowed from attempts of forced entry, the occupants of the building were instructed to move to secure locations,” reported AZDPS.

From inside, Arizona State Senator Michelle Ugenti-Rita (R-Scottsdale) documented the mob’s attempts to breach the Senate building.

Despite the mob’s attempts to disrupt the legislative proceedings, the legislature adjourned sine die last Saturday around midnight.

A second protest occurred later on Saturday; AZDPS confirmed that nine arrests were made over the weekend….

At present, it’s unclear whether Arizona will impose a total abortion ban. State leaders have two separate laws that they may enforce….

Heavenly Father, please protect Arizona’s legislators and people from violence and deception. May Your light shine forth in every pro-choicer’s heart so they may see the truth and turn to You. May You protect the unborn in Arizona and all states by the legislation, and may Your justice and equity be carried out through enforcing these laws. In Jesus’ name, amen.

FATHER GOD I ask for justice for these protesters who think nothing of destroying what taxpayers has paid for! So, peaceful people went into the U. S. Capital building on Jan. 6th, and a Capital policeman killed a woman that was trying to stop people from going in to the Capital unlawfully! Nothing was destroyed, no glass broken, yet a year and a half later there are hearings wasting tax dollars on a witch hunt trying to get President Trump who had nothing to do with the people going into the Capital! So now, because haters don’t care for a lawful decision, they are allowed to destroy property and instead of them being arrested, a fence is built up! FATHER GOD please send YOUR Justice all over America! YOUR WORD says that Vengence is YOURS and YOU will repay! I ask that YOU repay these usurpers all over America, from the White House to the Southern border; and on every other coast! FATHER GOD I thank YOU for the blessings you have given us through our Supreme Court Justices and ask that angels are sent to protect them and their families! Please protect all of us YOUR children in JESUS NAME! Amen!
