Recently, some friends invited me to accompany them and their church to pray for a town 50 miles north of us, King City, CA. This town is on the dividing line between two major rival gangs. We joined with a Hispanic church in King City and walked the streets for two hours while praying. We split up into four groups. At one point, we all stopped to pray in front of city hall and the police station. One week later, we were watching the news and saw that half the police force, including the police chief, had been dismissed because of corruption. Someone I know who works in the school district there said that fights and crime on the school campus have gone down since then. We believe God is answering our prayers for the city.
