Isaiah 22:22 (ESV)
And I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David. He shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
Our Father in heaven,
Our hearts break at the factionalism, rivalries, animosity, racism, grudge-holding, unforgiveness, resentment, mistrust, and broken family relationships in the Mississippi Delta. We are like blind Bartimeaus, son of Timaeus, crying out,“Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
If, in unseen realms, there are doors over the Mississippi Delta that are access points for these iniquities, we shut them. We open the doors named unity, love, forgiveness, friendship, loyalty, helpfulness, family commitment, and trust.
We declare over the Delta,
A friend is always loyal,
and a brother is born to help in time of need.
