Weekly Watch Focus: Our Family, Our Church
FRIDAY, October 7, 2011. Pray for our families and God’s corporate family—His Church. Put the blood line around our homes and cry out for God on behalf of our children. Break the yoke of generational curses. Let us also cover in prayer our churches, which are under attack from strongholds resisting the Gospel of Christ, especially put a prayer covering over the leadership. May God supply every financial need so the Church will be strong to extend the Kingdom.
We continue to pray for Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, God’s servant under the Iranian court’s death sentence. May God keep watch over him and his family.
We also honor Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Hebrew Calendar, and the atoning work of the Blood. We bless Israel as it celebrates the Day of Atonement, praying God’s angels keep watch over their borders.

Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves, and present an offering made to the Lord by fire. Do no work on that day, because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement is made for you before the Lord your God.'"; Lev. 17:11 "For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one's life."
