Father, I come boldly before Your throne of Grace lifting up the City of Newark, NJ and the surrounding areas. I pray for the lost in this city for Your Word says that You are not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance.
Father, I pray that You would open the hearts of every sinner and backslider in this city to come to repentance. That men would serve God in spirit and in truth. I pray that You would use my life, my ministry, my church, the members of my church, and other Christians and churches throughout this city to minister to and win the lost to Christ. And, may You also save our children and give them a heart, mind, will and a desire to serve and obey You.
I pray for those that are in authority in this City. I lift up the Mayor, his staff and assistants, the city council, and every person and department that is instrumental in leading and directing this city.
Father, I pray that You would bless this city with economic prosperity. Attract to our city industry, businesses and corporations that will produce jobs and revenue and help it to progress and grow. And deliver the people of our City from every spirit of poverty and lack.
I pray that You would close down and keep out of our City those things that demoralize it and its people, and things that produce wickedness and corruption. I pray that You would remove things such as prostitution, pornography, violence and drugs. I pray that You would also disband and remove gangs from the City of Newark along with every business, organization or group that endorses or breeds violence, lawlessness and unrighteousness.
You said in Your Word that we have the power and authority to take by force the things that belong to us. And so I take this city and its surrounding areas and communities for the Kingdom of God.
By the authority of the name of Jesus Christ, I come against evil and pull down every stronghold of in this City. I bind and rebuke every principality, all powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, demons and all spiritual wickedness in the High Places over the City of Newark. I bind their works, influence and power over this city.
I loose every yoke of bondage from this city. I loose every stronghold of sin,
abominations and perversions from this city. And, by the authority of the name of Jesus Christ, I render them helpless, powerless, inoperative, and ineffective to operate in or work against this city and its people in any way.
Father, Your Word says that we have the power to release Peace upon the City. So, now that I have bound Satan and his evil workers with the authority of Your Word, I loose The Spirit of Peace, Godliness and The Fear of the Lord over this City. And by Faith I open the doors of the Heavens for Your Holy Angels to be encamped around every part this City.
I thank You Father that Your angels are empowered and assigned to protect and guard this city. I thank You that they are also assigned to war against the powers of darkness. In The Name of Jesus I decree these things by the awesome power and the authority I have “In Christ”.
Now Father, I commit all these things concerning this city unto You. And, regardless of how things look in the natural, I confess Your Word is True. You are well able to bring to pass everything I have prayed concerning The City of Newark, NJ.
In the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray, and call these things done, AMEN!
