Jeremiah 29:7 Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare.’
Lord I lift up my city to you this morning and I cry out peace! Peace! Peace! Lord, let your peace be upon us today! Let your peace be the overarching theme in my territory today! As I stand and lift this city and nation up Lord bind the violence and the turmoil in the hearts of the people! Bring healing to the broken people and to this land being ravaged by evil. Do not let trauma have its way today in this region. Father we bind the violence, rebellion and the rage that is taking over our nation and call for honor to be our portion! Father, we repent for the damage done to those who are disenfranchised and we call them into the fold that we as a nation can be one. We cut down the roots that have been underground for hundreds of years that are now rising out of the ground to take hold of our young people! Protect them Lord and send your workers to point them to your light and your love!
Let joy move in Lord! We need the joy of the Lord! Lord woo your people. Draw their focus back on you today and not on the things going on around them. Help us to pray in your will and your glory so that you would be magnified and evil be torn down. Lord that we would lift your name high today and usher in your glory and your kingdom–your light into the darkest places, Father. Breath life and hope into this city and nation and let people see the light of your presence Jesus! And Lord, move quickly! We need you!
