One of the good friends of Lent & Beyond, Fr. Rob Eaton in San Joaquin who has a strong intercessory prayer ministry, has reminded those of us praying for the Diocese of South Carolina of the need to pray for protection in the midst of this spiritual battle. He sent the following prayer to a number of intercessors by email:
Almighty God, Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ name and authority, I apply the Blood of Jesus upon each and every intercessor for this time of discernment for the diocese of South Carolina. Protect them and keep them; let your light shine upon them. As well, reveal the darkness by your Light, and give us strength to lift up the Name of Jesus, that the Enemy must flee. By the gifts of your Holy Spirit, let us see the root of this darkness, so that we might rebuke it and defeat it, and then pray for the turning of the hearts of your enemies. All glory to you, O Father, now and forever. Amen.
If you are committed to intercession on behalf of +Mark Lawrence and the diocese of South Carolina, please ensure you have strong prayer cover, and please also be praying for spiritual and physical protection for those on the frontlines of the battle in South Carolina.
