What is the link between PRAYER and crime? How is your city doing?

Okay, so I happened to be having a look at the International House of Prayer web site and playing their web stream of 24/7 prayer and worship that has been continually running since 19 September 1999. I know there is a strong correlation between prayer (or lack thereof) and crime statistics so, intrigued, I looked it up. Here is what I found…

Compare the green lines (that’s the Kansas City crime rates, where they operate from) to the yellow lines (USA national average). Unbelievable, isn’t it?! It’s still way too high, but definitely trending downwards since 1999. And I love reading how prayer has affected history in other places over the world. Who knows what impact we could have for eternity when we seek the Lord? So my question to you – and me – is…

ARE YOU PRAYING FOR YOUR TOWN / CITY / NATION / WORLD? 

We have 24/7 access to the throne room of the universe.

Are we making the most of it?

PRAYER IS A VITAL (BUT NEGLECTED) PART OF THE ARMOUR OF GOD AND OUR MOST POWERFUL WEAPON

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Praying always… Ephesians 6:16-18

Lord, raise up Your army of people right across the world to pray!
