Child abuse and neglect

From the Journal of the Mississippi State Medical Association, vol. 57, no. 11:

In 2014, Mississippi had 27,967 total reports of child abuse and neglect, 22,706 of which were referred for investigation. A total of 8,435 children were substantiated to be victims of abuse or neglect, a rate of 11.5 per 1,000 children. Of these children, 75.7% were neglected, 17.5% were physically abused, and 11.8% were sexually abused. . . . In 2014, 22 children were confirmed to have died in Mississippi because of abuse or neglect.

Our Father in heaven,
We declare that You are disarming the principalities and powers of child abuse and neglect. Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead. He made a public spectacle of the principalities and powers of wickedness, triumphing over them by His death. We loose His holy angels to war against child abuse and neglect in Mississippi.

Exodus 15:20-21 (NKJV) The Song of Miriam
Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took the timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. And Miriam answered them:

“Sing to the Lord,
For He has triumphed gloriously!
The horse and its rider
He has thrown into the sea!”

Amen. Throw these powers and principalities into the sea!

Judith 9:11 (Apocrypha)
For thy power standeth not in multitude nor thy might in strong men: for thou art a God of the afflicted, an helper of the oppressed, an upholder of the weak, a protector of the forlorn, a saviour of them that are without hope.

Amen. You are the strong Deliverer of abused and neglected children!

Luke 1:50-53 (NKJV) From the Song of Mary
And His mercy is on those who fear Him
From generation to generation.
He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich He has sent away empty.

Amen. The thrones of child abuse and neglect are being overthrown!
