Weekly Watch Focus: Freedom from Opioid Addiction

Friday, Friday, June 23, 2017— “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it” (Col 2:15).

 In January, Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin focused his entire State of the State Message on the opiate addiction crisis facing his state. Authorities across the nation have expressed deepest concern over the spread of addiction that is crippling our nation. This trend touches all demographics, and all corners of society, with the nation’s death rate from opioid overdoses now surpassing total deaths from homicides and car accidents combined.

Bind the spirit of addiction plaguing America. Opioid addiction is one of the main factors behind the recent decline in life-expectancy in the United States. This crisis is hurting families, leaving children orphaned or in foster care, and destroying communities. Let us specifically pray to break this stronghold and pray for healing. Pray for law enforcement and state agencies to have wisdom to set policies in place that will help eradicate this cycle and restore those bound to opiates.
