Praying Spiritual Protection Over Our Cities
“A growing movement called ‘Refuse Fascism’ has been making headlines with threats of violence in 14 cities throughout the United States on Saturday, November 4, 2017 (Catholic Online, Fulcrum, Z3 News). Their plan is to stage protests against the Trump/Pence administration in hopes of removing them from office. Regardless of the severity of their threats or the actual numbers of followers in their cause, they represent an ongoing attempt to create fear and instability in the nation and stop those who are pursuing righteous government. Though there are specific cities targeted, it is a reminder that every community must stand their guard at the city gates through prayer and intercession. It is up to those who follow Christ to displace the plans of the enemy by securing the borders of their city and declaring God’s kingdom purposes. To equip intercessors and city leaders in this charge, use and share this Prayer Guide for Protection Over Cities. Through these prayer points, you can encourage unity in prayer and oneness of spirit so that Christ is glorified.
