Covering Cleveland in Prayer
“At least 50,000 visitors are expected in Cleveland this week, as well as thousands of journalists and tens of thousands of truckers, bikers, Trump supporters, and competing demonstrators from across a wide political spectrum. The emotions fueling protesters in Cleveland will be running high. Approximately 500 local law enforcement officers and 2,500 to 2,700 out-of-the-area law enforcement officers will make up the command force.” (BridgeBuilders)1
“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:27; TLB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Thank the Lord for our electoral process. Though flawed, it is the basis for our governmental freedom.
The right to peaceful protest is a part of our First Amendment rights. “Peaceful” is the key word. Pray for peace over the protests in Cleveland this week.
Pray for protection of the law enforcement officers there who will be working around the clock to maintain the peace across the city and especially near the convention center.
Ask the Lord to send angelic assistance to expose any plans to cause harm, whether from terrorism to racial unrest. Pray that God blankets Cleveland with supernatural
A prayer you can pray:
Father, I thank You for the electoral process in America. Thank you that individuals and groups have the constitutional right to peacefully protest in this nation. We pray that any protests planned in Cleveland this week will indeed be peaceful. Especially cover the law enforcement officers as they attempt to keep the peace in the city 24 hours a day for the next few days. They will need angelic assistance, Lord. Send your angel armies to cover Cleveland with a blanket of supernatural peace and grace. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
God’s angel armies will protect Cleveland this week as we pray and the peace of God will be tangible!
