Dear Friends of COLLIN CREEK CHURCH,
Recently I heard how the prayers of a church vanquished Satan’s grip on a neighborhood: “In 2010 a group of eight people from two churches felt called to the Detroit Boulevard neighborhood of Sacramento. It was known as one of the most notorious crime-ridden neighborhoods in all of Sacramento. Each house in that neighborhood was a place of danger. Nonetheless this group of eight decided to walk through the neighborhood praying over each home and praying for the presence of Christ to reign over violence, addiction, and satanic oppression. They began walking through the neighborhood, praying over each home and the release of the demonic strongholds of addiction and violence.
One of the eight, former Sacramento police officer and gang detective Michael Xiong, reported that “each time we prayed over the houses, we felt the weight of oppression becoming lighter.” The group soon physically moved into the neighborhood and started Detroit Life Church. A couple years later a local newspaper, the Sacramento Bee, reported that there were no homicides, robberies, or sex crimes, and only one assault in Detroit Boulevard between 2013 and 2014. Detroit Boulevard had been transformed by a small group of people who began their ministry in the neighborhood by praying, demonstrating God’s grace and sharing the good news of Jesus in the neighborhood and the power of Satan was vanquished.
Are there areas of your life and/or the community around the church where this kind of spiritual activity needs to be seen more?
