Weekly Watch Focus: Youth and Gang Violence

FRIDAY, July 15, 2011. Millions of our teens have grown up in fatherless homes. This has resulted in millions of young people who are infected by the orphan spirit and looking for identity. Many have found it in the gang culture. Mob violence by teen gangs is drastically increasing. Pray for our cities where violence has risen. Lift up these young men and women, and pray that the Holy Spirit would bring them to Christ, fill them with the Spirit that will help them cry, “Abba, Father.” May they come to know God loves them and has a good purpose for their lives. Pray that they be rescued from the gang culture.

Acts 2:17-18, “I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.”

Jer. 31:17, “There is hope in your future, says the Lord, that your children shall come back to their own border.”

Eph 3: 14-19, “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

Additional Focus – Pray for Rain!

Ongoing, severe drought conditions now cover at least fourteen states from Florida, Georgia to Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. Agriculture is hardest hit, with ranchers in several states having to sell off their cattle for lack of grazing and farmer’s crops failing due to the parched conditions. Water restrictions and wildfires are also affecting several of these states.

Pray for breakthrough for the drought-stricken areas. Declare God’s Open Heaven for America to send natural and spiritual rain to revive our nation and heal our land.

Zech 10:1, “Ask the LORD for rain in the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone.”

Joel 2:23-24, “Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully and He will cause the rain to come down for you—the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.”
