It seems daily that news sites report the outrageous behavior of all kinds of people. Lawlessness. Chaos. There are spirits behind what we see in the headlines and we can stand in prayer against them.

Who is praying on the wall?


A prayer to address the spirit of Chaos  

Prayer: Father, thank You for bringing awareness to Your people of the spiritual battle law enforcement faces in this nation. We realize the turmoil designed to incite people to riot in our streets, destroy property, and ignore the laws of this land comes from the ancient god of Chaos. We stand firm in the power of our God and address this underlying principality. We bind the spirit of Chaos that wants to rule from the high places and destroy America. You can no longer roam our streets, take captive the minds of our youth, undermine law enforcement, or weaken our judicial system. You are like chaff that the wind blows away. You will no longer rule over us. Those who look for you to carry out their evil plans will be disappointed and turn away. (Psalm 1:4) (2 Kings 23:5-7)

A prayer of repentance for allowing the Spirit of Chaos to enter America

Prayer: Father, we acknowledge that the people of the earth have defiled the land. We have disobeyed Your laws and broken an everlasting covenant with You, causing a curse to consume our land. We bind the spirit of Chaos that we allowed to create violence in our streets and blind the minds of our youth. We repent on behalf of the people of this nation. We ask that You grant us mercy and restore our land. We exalt the name of the Lord so our streets will once again be filled with Your people who sing your praises. (Isaiah 24)

A prayer of protection for law enforcement police as they stand against the manifestation of the spirit of Chaos 

Prayer: Father, we pray for wisdom and protection for law enforcement who stand as our first line of defense in the natural against the Chaos happening in our streets. We ask for Your protection for those who work to prevent violence and protect the innocent. We realize the battle is not against flesh and blood, and the spirit of Chaos is an evil spirit that must be dealt with spiritually. We pray that the spiritually aware warriors who have faith in You will reclaim our nation and take their place in prayer to destroy this power of darkness. (Ephesians 6:12)

Father we stand against the spirit of anarchy and chaos in America’s cities. In your name Jesus and in Your authority, we claim that Your angelic hosts are dismantling and cutting off this spirit from its intended mission. Crush and thwart the plans of the anarchists. Make them confused and disunified. In your name Jesus I pray.
Also Father, strengthen law enforcement personnel in each city to be strong and determined to enforce the laws and protect their citizens. Keep them safe as they carry out their duties. May no weapon – physical or spiritual – formed against them succeed!
In the mighty name of Jesus, I pray. Amen and amen!

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the LORD your GOD is with you wherever you go” Josh 1:9 (AMP).

“Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the LORD (always doing your best and doing more than is needed), being continually aware that your labor (even to the point of exhaustion) in the LORD is not futile nor wasted (it is never without purpose)” 1 Cor 15:58 (AMP).

“ARISE (from spiritual depression to a new life), shine (be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the LORD); for your light has come; and the glory and brilliance of the LORD has risen upon you” Is 60:1 (AMP).

“When Jesus heard this, He said; “This sickness will not end in death; but (on the contrary it is) for the glory and honor of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by it” John 11:4 (AMP).

HOLY! HOLY! HOLY! Is the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, Who was and Who is and Who is to come! Rev 4:8/b (NIV).

The door to increased violence was opened on Ja 6th. God forgive us for allowing deception to take control Starting from the head.

The enemy is behind all of this. His time is short and we have been told what to expect.
I am reminded….
Chaos said, “Do You not know that I have authority to release You and authority to crucify You?” Jesus replied, “You would have no authority over Me if it were not given to you from above. …”

I am reminded…
Chaos is nothing compared to the Wrath of God… chaos trembles in fear knowing that judgement is coming. Peter was speaking about the false prophets and teachers of his time but they too were under the thumb of chaos/corruption. 2 Peter 2

God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell, chained until judgement
God did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah
God turned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes
The Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials
The Lord knows how to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment…those who despise authority and are slaves of corruption…for them the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved.

I am reminded…
God even allows a certain measure of freedom to our adversary to bring about His purpose. He is in command of all things, at all times.

Dear Lord and God Almighty, I pray You will have Your way over the darkness in America, Israel, Mexico, Canada and all the nations. Please do not lead us into hard testing but keep us safe from the evil one. For kingship, power and glory are Yours (and Yours Alone) forever. I ask this and so much more in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen

Lord Jesus Christ, You are the Prince of Peace. In the midst of chaos and turmoil, I now pray for a sense of calm to envelop America’s Peace Officers. May Your peace reign in their hearts, allowing them to navigate tense situations with composure and serenity. Allow America’s Peace Officers to be beacons of tranquility in the face of civil unrest and lawlessness, reflecting Your peace to those they encounter. In Christ Jesus’ mighty and holy Name, and by His authority, I pray. Amen.

LORD, thank You for continuing to raise up Your army, Your children. For opening our eyes and ears to KNOW and DO Your will by continuing to take our seat of authority with You. I t IS Your will for ALL of us to know and do Your will, to have Your will done on earth as it is in heaven
Thank You, LORD, for making Your will so plain and helping us to do Your will!

I agree with these prayers. We call out and rebuke the spirit of chaos from every sphere — every space,
open and hidden. We proclaim the lordship of Jesus Christ over America and pray that many people
of this land will turn to Him in sorrowful repentance. And may His people lead the way in humility.

Father, in the Name of Jesus and because of the authority He gave to His own, I call forth God’s Holy angels to distribute peace, order, calm, harmony, and organization in place of chaos wherever it rears its ugly head. Send the legions of Your angels to war in the heavenlies against these demonic spirits that are attempting to break down Your Kingdom. Yours is an everlasting Kingdom, without end. It will not change because You, O Mighty God, do not change. Have You not said? And will You not make it come to pass? You will, Lord, by Your mighty power. I give You praise and glory for answering this plea. Amen.

But we must believe we have FREE WILL to Repent and Obey

    Yes, Ted – but this is not prayer to bind people, it is a prayer to bind evil spirits. The first is witchcraft, but binding spirits is within our sphere of authority and we should be actively waging this spiritual warfare.

Abba Father, we thank you for the Blood of Yeshua! Your Blood Jesus is our Authority! We repent as we have neglected (our vigilance) to consistently war and thwart chaos as Your Ecclesia, Your spiritual government! We give You all praise, honor, and glory! Amen!
