National Prayer Focus #5

Remember Washington State

  • Let us continue to show worth to the police officers and their families through our prayers.

Attentiveness vs. Unconcern
"Showing the worth of a person by giving undivided attention to his words and emotions" *(IBLP)

  • Let Jesus know He can depend on us to pray for those in need.

Dependability vs. Inconsistency
"Fulfilling what I consented to do even if it means unexpected sacrifice" *(IBLP)

(Lakewood, WA) Four police officers were killed in what is being described as an ambush by the Pierce County Sheriff's Department.

"The Tacoma News Tribune" reports a gunman walked into a Lakewood diner and opened fire.
It's being reported the officers were targeted and the shootings weren't connected to a robbery.

Ask this question.  How important is it to know, understand, and operate in the authority of Jesus?

We as believers have been given delegated authority to rule in the spirit realm against evil spirits. 

These evil spirits work through people and their agenda is to steal, kill, and destroy. (Discover more Keeping America safe)
