Healing the Inner City

“Nehemiah set out to rebuild the walls and restore the gates of the ruined inner city of Jerusalem, and his task was completed in 52 days. Many thought that he and the returning exiled citizens of the city of Jerusalem would never be able to complete this enormous task. But with the help of King Artaxerxes and the wise and faithful cup bearer of the King, Nehemiah, the healing of the inner city of Jerusalem was completed. For practical purposes of intercession, the broken down walls and the burning gates of the inner cities of America represent spheres of influence that provide healthy and spiritual vitality for the inner cities of America, mainly: Government, Education, Family, Housing, Justice, and Economy. Today we will pray for President Trump and his administration.” (Rickie Bradshaw)1

“So the wall was finished on the 25th day of Elul.” (Nehemiah 1:1-11; 6:15; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Intercede on behalf of President Donald J. Trump as he considers a strategy for the rebuilding of the inner cities of America (1 Timothy 2:2)

  2. Pray for President Trump and his administration to have a desire to see the inner city lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God, who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:2-5)

  3. Pray for the President and his administration that they will stand up for the poor and those who cannot stand for themselves, including the innocent ones in the womb. (Jeremiah 22:3)

  4. Give thanks to The Lord for giving the inner cities of America favor with the President in rebuilding the walls and the burning gates of the inner cities of America. (Nehemiah 1:11)

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we lift President Trump up to You and ask that You give him and those working with him a strategy for our inner cities. Their problems are challenging and unique, and affect many Americans. We desire to see our inner cities at peace. We want them to be places of safety and quietness. We pray for the many poor that reside in them and ask You to provide services for all and justice for the innocent ones. Let this President arise as a Nehemiah and rebuild the walls of our inner cities! Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that the Lord will rouse President Trump to have a strong desire and the wisdom needed to rebuild the walls of the inner cities of America!
