What is the Prayershield Vision? Our vision is that the prayers of God’s people locally will serve to protect all aspects of life in our community. As people pray, we believe that God will not only protect us from harm, but will also pour out His blessing. I have posted watchmen on your walls (Isaiah 62:6) As we pray, we see through God’s eyes into the distance, and, like the watchmen of old when they stood on the watchtower of the city, we can see threat of trouble approaching and pray for God to change the situation. Within your area, we are praying for good things to happen under the blessing of God. We desire that the younger generation will inherit a place that is good to live in and that they will be blessed through the life of the community, and, in the future, will inherit all that God has established among us. When considering the next generation, the Psalmist says that we should: Walk about Zion [the kingdom of God in your area], go round her, count her towers, consider well her ramparts, view her citadels, that you may tell of them to the next generation.(Psalm 48: 12, 13).
