Let the Heart Cry of Justice Be Answered

There has been a deep cry for justice among the people of color in our nation. “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”1 “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”2

“The LORD is exalted, for He dwells on high; He has filled Zion with justice and righteousness.” (Isaiah 33:5; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Pray for the hearts of the Native Americans to be healed from the effects of unrighteousness and injustice.

  2. Pray that all of the people of color living in the inner cities would be healed of the effects of racial injustice.

  3. Pray for Asian Americans to be healed of the effects of injustices they have suffered.

  4. Ask the Lord to send rivers of healing to wash away all injustice and let the revival begin!

A prayer you can pray:

God, go to every Native American reservation and fill it with righteousness and justice. Let the Native people feel Your heart of justice, God. Bring healing. Then, go to the inner cities. Fill all the inner cities with justice and righteousness. Satisfy the burning desire in the hearts of the people for justice. Answer the prayers of the mommas and the grandmothers. Answer the prayers for the salvation of their sons and daughters and their grandsons and granddaughters. To the Asian community, we ask You speak to their hearts and draw them. The foundation of Your throne is justice, so let justice roll like a river from Your throne into these people groups. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that God will heal the effects of racial injustice in the hearts of the people of color in America.
