Praying For Salem


Identify with the sins of the city - We can all identify with the roots of any sin in our city. We have been lax in travailing for Salem. We need to identify in personal and corporate repentance. Nehemiah identified with the sins in his city and prayed: “I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s family, have committed against you” (Nehemiah 1:6-7)  But now we rise up united in Prayer!


Cover Salem with continuous praise and worship - God gives you His heart for Salem through worship and a positive attitude. Instead of complaining and reacting toward the sin in Salem, praise God for the good things. Satan is already an accuser, so praising God and declaring by faith the eternal purpose and dream of God over Salem brings in His presence and defeats the enemy.

 Ask God to give you HIS heart for Salem-

When you have God’s heart, you will pray with a love that seeks God’s plan for Salem.  You will love Salem as He loves Salem.  Your prayers will be much more effectual and fervent.   

Prayer for Salem

Dear Lord, change the atmosphere of our city through our prayers. Help us to guard Salem as watchmen.  Salem belongs to You Teach us to continually cover it with praise and worship day and night. We long to release Your fire in the night season. Give us insight into how to pray for Salem and how to take action in love as we wait on You. Teach us the secret of travailing prayer. Give us great faith for peace and revival for Salem. We will pray until Your deliverance comes. We choose to give ourselves no rest (Isaiah 62:6-7). We praise You for You are mighty and powerful, and You can do all things. We choose to remember Your name in the night. We praise You for what You are going to do in our city as we pray and reach out to the lost. In Jesus’ name, amen.

  •     Pray against the gang violence invading Salem. 
  •  Pray that no more lives will be lost.   
  •    Pray for the safety of our children and our communities.       
  •    Pray for salvation and revival in Salem rain down  like fire from heaven.     
  •  Pray for the protection of the Police force and wisdom for our chief of Police, Chief John Pelura.

 “I have posted watchmen on your walls, O JeruSalem; they will never be silent day and all night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes JeruSalem and makes her the praise of the earth" - 

(Isaiah 62:6-7)
