I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we pray for law and order to return to our nation.

Leftist policies in parts of California are making it easy for thieves to shoplift large amounts of merchandise from stores. In fact, due to shoplifting laws that are not enforced unless over $950 in value, they have created a network of organized retail crime that has ravaged stores. Gangs of thieves come into stores and leave with armloads of merchandise, knowing they will not be prosecuted.

Gateway Pundit says, “Marxist San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin made it clear that prosecuting shoplifters is low on his priority list and his ‘no arrest’ policy is destroying brick and mortar businesses.” It has resulted in the closing of 6 Target stores in San Francisco.

This major chain closing in San Francisco is likely on top of the many local retail businesses that cannot whether the large scale shoplifting rings. Hear about this from a mayor in California who talks with IFA’s Dave Kubal about the inception of these harmful laws. Click here to watch.

ABC 7 has reported:

Target has now acknowledged that San Francisco is the only city in America where they have decided to close some stores early because of the escalating retail crime.

For more than a month, we’ve been experiencing a significant and alarming rise in theft and security incidents at our San Francisco Stores, similar to reports from other retailers in the area.

Target isn’t the only store in San Francisco to make changes because of the continuous shoplifting. After 10 p.m. the 7-Eleven on Drumm St. in the Financial District only does business through a metal door. But first you have to ring the bell to let them know you’re outside.

Walgreens has already closed several stores for the same reason and security guards like Kevin Greathouse are told not to physically engage with those shoplifting.

“It’s going to be lawsuits, obviously they don’t want ourselves or anybody else to get injured while we’re out here attempting to make these apprehensions and leave it to law enforcement,” said Greathouse.

This is clearly all by design, as was the “PlanDemic.” It’s just one more way to destroy Americans lives, to continuetheir Evil Globalist Agenda.

But in the meantime, our Representatives need to be swarmed w/calls & emails, because this is NOT acceptable! These laws only incentiveizes thrives to become “serial thrives”, to where they will wind up stealing Many Thousands of dollars in merchandise over time when they know they can get away with every infraction. These laws MUST End!!!

Stealing is stealing, whether it’s $950.00 or just $1.00. How do you justify that when saying it isn’t stealing?!

Dear Lord, I pray that law and order could be restored in our nation. The lawlessness appears to be worsening. I pray for our police officers, that their hands not be so tied and that they would be able to do their jobs as they should. I pray for the protection of law enforcement officials and for their safety. I also pray for the criminals and thugs that they will turn their hearts toward You, Jesus and I pray that they will do so. Jesus, we know Your word says lawlessness will one day be harshly judged by You to all who engage in it. In Jesus name, Amen.

The Lord is saying this morning that there IS that element that is going to encourage the power play of the legal profession in San Francisco. May they know the Power of the omniscient God they are opposing. Those who wish to endorse lawlessness WILL find God the Father says, “enough.”

Since Target is one of the leaders in so called ‘wokeness”, they are now reaping the residual garbage that comes with the various elements of wokeness in a city/state whose sad and morally absent leadership promotes chaos. The arrogance of morally corrupted leadership that throws away common sense, law enforcement and won’t protect their citizens and businesses…it will catch up to those individuals. They believe that they live in a protected bubble because of the positions they hold. But that false bubble they refuse to step out of will pop.
*Lord, bring real hope, salvation, repentance and help to those in the SanFran area. Remove ungodly and corrupt leadership. Remove those who deem themselves ‘intelligent’ in their own eyes and replace them with those who love You Lord and Your ways. Amen.

Jesus told us that in the end ‘lawlessness’ would increase, causing the love of many to grow cold (Matt.24:12-13). This is interesting because the love talked about is love for God. As we in the church see lawlessness increase, because we are not ready for it, or do not see it as part of His endtime preparation for a harvest amid persecution of believers, our love for God will ‘grow cold’. Are we ready instead, as the ekklesia, to burn with love for our God even if lawlessness increases? Yes! father, we ask that You would increase our love for You amidst increasing lawlessness. Minister Your love and grace to business owners as they respond to ungodly laws. We need revival in this nation! Pour out Your Spirit that all might know You, the Most High God, and be turned from lawlessness to righteousness. Help Your people not to despair in these days and to await Your return with JOY!

These store thieves are overriding their consciences to decide to shoplift. That is a lot of merchandise to bring out of the store at one time. What do they think is going to happen to those stores? I guess they are the well dressed and fed bunch. More people need to wake up indeed.
