I recently dreamed that young boys were being rounded up and conditioned or reprogrammed. They went without argument, like sheep being led to the slaughter. Young boys around 9-11 years old. When I awoke I knew immediately this was another prayer assignment for this tribe.
Several scriptures come to mind regarding how to pray and live as The Body so that we can win this fight with God's ancient enemy. Joshua 1:8 is one of my favorites and often my response when my own son asked why we had to review something he 'already knew.'
"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success."
If our sons meditate on The Written Word, when someone tries to lure them away, they'll think twice and resist instead of following. Yeshua said in John 10:27, "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me." And remember, He called us sheep because we're that stupid without renewed minds. We learn His Voice and renew our minds by meditating on His Words and becoming acquainted with how He speaks. For example, no devil will tell you to sell all your goods and give your money to the poor and follow Yeshua. A demon will tell you you're really a woman trapped in a man's body and that the future is female. The future is Yeshua ... otherwise there's no hope.
Our sons are under attack (even if you don't technically have one). It's obvious, and my dream confirmed it. And the issue is on God's heart. He has the desire for His Government on earth - the shoulders of Christ, The Body - to take its rightful place of authority and legislate what happens here. We sometimes forget what follows Isaiah 9:6 and why Yeshua came to earth. Verse seven explains, "Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this."
Yeshua came to take back dominion of the earth and people that Adam relinquished when he and Eve sinned. His Government increases every time someone comes into The Kingdom through faith in Him. If you look at American politics, they're constantly increasing. People get a taste of that power and they want to rule everything and bring it under their submission. That's what we're supposed to be doing as The Body. We get a taste of God's Justice and Peace, and should be hungry to spread it and subdue this chaotic earth.
Part of our problem is that we haven't even learned to subdue our personal chaos so we can't think big enough to even imagine subduing the enemy's work in other areas. We need to fix that. But we also need to just plain get to work and get into agreement with anyone doing God's larger work. American churches have been failing as far as preaching and teaching The Kingdom of God. And the cray thing is that's ALL Yeshua talked about. What did He always say? "The Kingdom has come. The Kingdom is here. The Kingdom is in you. I'm giving you The Keys of The Kingdom. Kingdom. Kingdom. Kingdom."
