“A Prayer For The City”

July 1, 2020

Father, since we submitted our lives to You we have been praying for the peace of Jerusalem. We continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and we pray for the peace of Christ to rain down upon the cities of our nation. We pray for servants of the Gospel who are taking the message of salvation to the troubled streets of our land, for their safety and for receptivity from those looking for answers, the ones that can’t be found in our institutions of higher learning or our divided political landscape across America. Many express their rage and anger through lawless acts of vandalism, destruction, incite fear, and the calamitous list goes on and on. We pray for our elected leaders to stand for law and order,  to be strong and courageous in recapturing civility among the rebellious throngs who resist the established authority. We pray for churches and ministries located in these cities to prayerfully and eagerly present the greatest Authority, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who provides the greatest Manual of all time, the Holy Bible which gets to the heart of the matter. No law can change the heart of humankind, but through salvation of Christ, our soul’s diseases can be healed and the ills of a country’s as well. Help us, we earnestly pray, Amen.
