I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we pray about the hurt, the sorrow, the fear, and the anger we are seeing in people right now. May we find answers in You.

This week, the nation witnessed the violent death of George Floyd. An arrest has been made. Details are currently under investigation and hopefully will be made known soon. The loss of any life in this type of manner is tragic. We mourn the life of George Floyd and pray justice will be served. We’ve seen the reaction of people in cities across the nation. Many want justice. Some want violence and to personally gain by stealing, looting, or extending their agenda. We need to pray for truth, justice, and peace now by:

  • Praying for George Floyd’s family and friends as they mourn his tragic loss.
  • Praying for the Minneapolis police department as a whole and Officer Derek Chauvin, who has now been charged with murder.
  • Praying for the Church in Minneapolis to rise up and for God to bring peace to the city.
  • Praying for mayors and police forces in major cities across the nation to be able to enforce the law in a proper and effective way.
  • Pray for police forces around the nation. Authorities that do not abuse power are critical for the rule of law. Pray for calm law enforcement, for clear minds in heated moments, and for protection.
  • Praying for the truth to be revealed as the Department of Justice assists in the investigation. Pray for justice.

We repent on behalf of our nation for we:
• In prejudice withheld justice.
• Apathetically ignored corrupt judicial systems institutionalize injustice.
• Lawlessly responded injustice. Hired hooligans to riot. Set communities on fire. Pillaged the innocent.
• As early as the Boston Tea Party we destroyed other’s property in protest and insurrection.
• Do not acknowledge we are made in the image of the God yet like Him innately desire justice, but unlike Him exchange love, righteousness, and justice for hate, lawlessness, and revenge.

This is unfortunate for it to get to this, but yjis is a result of disobeying the Lord. You get what you ask for, to avoid conflict is to rngage in conflict. Learn the lesson of Jesus-perfect man ,perfect God who went around healing the sick, comforting the broken people in His generation. If you want to continue in sin, then riot all you want then go to hell where you belong, You will not be welcomed by Jesus if you go around burning buildings, killing people or stealing. Your coice dictates where you go in the end. Better to show justice by condemning the wicked.
Look it pays to not riot,then it does to riot. It is taxpayer’s money that is neing wasted after all. You know it breaks the Lord’s heart that Christians are nowhere in a riot. only liberals.

Our city has been under attack for three days now. The mayor called out the National Guard this afternoon and instituted an 8pm curfew. He said there was a vast difference between protesters in the afternoon waving posters and the night gangs that were looting and some had military grade weapons.
Thanks for your information to wage war in the Spirit. May we see the Glory come down on this Pentecost season. Blessings on all your efforts..

    Karen, today I looked up scripture that explains what is meant by children of the light (day) and children of the dark (night). That mayor sees the difference. Thanks for sharing that.

      Thanks for your input. I had never explored that scripture. You contributed to my learning curve. Thanks and Be Blessed as you have Blessed.

Protesting and rioting are two different acts motivated by different mindsets. A protest is granted as a right to all citizens to voice their opinion over a matter. A riot is a criminal act to destroy property and put lives in danger. The later becomes a spiritual issue encouraged by forces of darkness to steal, kill, and destroy. It’s interesting that in many places where riots are breaking out, their appears to be a coordinated effort as some rioters clothed in expensive riot gear. Just today even the President tweeted that much of the riots are orchestrated, not generic outbreaks from citizens. The riots fueled by evil people wanting to create as much chaos as they can, knowing the media will spin it such a way to denigrate the current administration.
This is similar to the response of the Covid -19 outbreak, made much worse by the response. It starts out as a plague and then becomes much worse by the actions of people that are deceived by the forces of darkness. Economy is shut down, people take sides and division occurs. It is weaponized to criticize The President, like it’s his fault. Over and over we see the same pattern. The ultimate goal is to take down our country and shackle us with tyranny. I say us, meaning Christians and those who cherish freedom.
I believe the source of this mayhem is spiritual. Ephesians 6. It has been the source of this war we have been in since Trump was elected. It is increasing in its magnitude because the Truth is being revealed.
We have been infiltrated. It’s called insurgency. The enemy has cleverly placed people in our society that are being used as pawns. Their behavior is cult like. They will behave thinking they are saving the country , but in reality they are destroying it, which is the the ultimate plan of the evil one. Deception is used to literally take over a persons mind.
I have seen this technique used in cults, as I have personally been effected by one. I saw intelligent people, caught up in deception, make horrible decisions that ruined their lives and affected many around them.
So what can we do? I learned that once the true enemy is discovered, that we as Christians have authority over these spirits of evil. Jesus said, “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you, never the less do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven” Luke 10:19-20.
“ The spirits are subject to you”. That is us. So we don’t become prideful, he says don’t rejoice in it. Keeps our eyes on the goal.

Let’s pray and take authority over this evil that has gripped our land. Let’s call out to these sprits and take authority over them.
Dear Father, by the authority given to us through the sacrifice of your Son, who promised us the Holy Spirit just before He ascended to Heaven, we command the spirits of deception, perversion, and witchcraft to be bound and rendered powerless over our country. Release youri grip over the media, the institutions of our government, the FBI, the CIA, the DOJ, the finance sector, our military, our courts, our state governors, our state representatives, our congress, including the house and the senate, all law enforcement around the country. Dear Lord reign in this terror unleashed on our country. Break all lines of communication between the ones calling the shots to their minions. Break down this organized resistance fueling all this violence. Strangle source of funding, remove the kingpins. Lead our law enforce to the evidence that demonstrates incite to riot, and bring these evildoers to justice. We pray against all fear for our law enforcement and give them resolve to find and root out all players breaking the law.
Dear Father, we need more warriors. Pentecost is coming tomorrow. I pray you pour out Your Spirit as never seen on this earth. Fill your people with the Spirit of Truth. Empower us to walk in Your wisdom and teach us how to use this power. Raise up Your Church and give them understanding and discernment concerning the battle that is taking place over our country. Put a burden in hearts of Your people so they may commit and be a force against this evil.
Let us not become weary. God always listens when His people pray with the right motives. I have seen miracles take place when the prayers of righteous people line up with the will of God. Through faith I believe this is such a time we are going to see the move of God like never before. I say this because I see in the Spirit similar dynamics as I have seen in the past. It’s just on a much bigger scale. The bigger the deception the more effort it takes to expose it and break its hold. The enemy also knows that it must subjugate itself to the power of God. It reacts vehemently when it realizes Christians (who posses that power) understand who it is, how it works, and put it in our cross hairs. Powers of darkness, you are in our crosshairs, your days of control over our country are numbered.

    AMEN!!! We are in the middle of a spiritual warfare for the soul of this nation! We as God’s Children must wake up and join the God’s Army!!

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities,, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12). Satan is a deceiver and the father of lies. He is the one behind all of the terrible things that are happening in this country and around the world. Sadly, we as Christians are not using the Spiritual Armor that the Lord has given us. Satan’s strategy is to divide and conquer. We pledge allegiance to the flag and say “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” We are not one nation under the True and Living God, we are divided, and there is no liberty and justice for all. There has never been liberty and justice for all. As if dealing with COVID-19 is not bad enough. Now, more of this rioting. America is imploding. We are destroying ourselves. Too bad. This will not end until Jesus returns.

He died because he was denied air for eight minutes. Most humans can’t hold their breath that long perhaps Lawrence should try holding his breath for just five minutes.

I am a white person. Some years ago I saw for myself how my friend a lovely black lady was treated by the owner of a store. It was disgraceful! I didn’t know what to do; it took me completely by surprise. I had no idea until that moment of how awful and how painful it must be for “people of color”–which is a ridiculous descriptive for we are all people of color be it white, olive, brown or black. GOD created ALL of us! Praying that Our Heavenly Father would send the Spirit of Repentance on this land and break the color barrier! In Jesus Name. Amen.

Know the truth, the medical examiner’s autopsy reports that George Floyd died of a heart condition complicated by intoxicants! … Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free, John 8:32

    Barbara Hesch

    Lawrence, I just saw that report too, yet even if that is the truth, there are people who will choose not to believe it. They would rather have the division and the destruction it brings. Evil abounds, but God is still on the throne.

      We are distracted by the riots. Let’s get to the heart of the matter. A man was murdered, by officers abusing their power. He was held down and died by asphyxiation (whether the county coroner admits it or not).
      The spirit of hate and murder that was inflicted upon that man has spread across the country. This is not about politics. This is about the sin of racism and a nation that has never repented for its “original” sin. The rioters are wrong. The police officers were wrong. We worship our God in spirit and in TRUTH. We need to speak truth, pray truth and ask God to reveal the truth, even within our own hearts. When we can do that and not point fingers, true healing and reconciliation will begin.

As believers in Christ Jesus we are in a spiritual battle. Mark 3:27 Jesus says “No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man, then plunder his house. Well who’s the strong man? The spirit of murder and violence. In the name of Jesus Christ we bind up the spirit of murder and violence, and loose Your love mercy and justice in this situation Lord. Give wisdom to those who are in authority to handle this matter. And Father we ask that the church rise up and take her spiritual authority in Christ Jesus and operate as we should in Jesus name amen.

Jesus says in John 10:10. “The theif does not come except to steal, kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”. What is happening in the cities is from the evil one. Let’s keep praying for the Holy Spirit to come and convict and lead them to repentance. Father, cause them to see their own sinful condition and cause them to do good by choosing You. Amen

    Cynthia Weatherwax

    Yes, praise God conviction must come, then repentance.

We can each raise our hand and declare, “Peace, be still, to every storm coming against my family, neighborhood, community, city, state and our nation NOW in the All-powerful Name of JESUS, AMEN, HALLELUJAH!”
