Prayer Of Intercession - Today
Holy God, Our Father, You alone are God and Your name is Holy. You are the Sovereign ruler over all the earth and over all of Creation. Today, Father we pray for Your Kingdom rule and Your will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Lord, day after day we see and hear of violence, murder, mayhem and destruction occur at an alarming rate in the world and in increasing frequency in our country. Things are tragically out of control and those in positions of authority charged with preserving the peace and protecting the people are overwhelmed by the works of evil and darkness in our cities and communities in diverse places.
Now Lord God, You have told us not to be shaken when we se
e and hear about these things, because they have been prophesied and we should not be taken by surprise when they happen. But we are also called to not sit idly by and just view them as so much theatre or “entertainment.” They are real and each act of violence brings sorrow and sadness, loss and destabilization to those directly and indirectly involved. Loved ones are brutally taken and friends are lost to the wanton acts of evil perpetrators by the spirit of antichrist in the world, the thief who comes only to steal, kill and destroy. But we thank You, Father that we have the greater One, Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord living in us and interceding on our behalf.
So, we pray now, and in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord by the power and authority in that name that is above every name, we take authority over the spirits of violence, murder, destruction and death and we bind every spirit of violence and terror, we bind you and command you to cease your activity. We cast you out in the name of Jesus and we render your acts null and void. We speak life and peace to the people of the United States of America in the name of Jesus. WE DECLARE THE AUTHORITY OF GOD IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OVER EVERY PLAN OF VIOLENCE SET AGAINST US TO THWART, DIFFUSE AND BRING THEM TO NAUGHT.
Now, Father we pray for those who have lost loved ones in the Ft. Lauderdale Airport. We pray for Your Spirit to intervene in the situation there and we pray for all the people involved that You would surround them with Your ministering angels to protect them and rescue them from any further violence. We pray for restored peace and calm and comfort for those there throughout the airport.
Father, we pray that you will minister Your grace and peace over this situation now in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and we thank You for Your goodness and grace over all the people there. Amen and Amen.
