Why Seattle's CHAZ Reveals What Happens in Vacuum of Authority—And Urgent Need for Prayer

When we watch the news with a biblical lens, we gain insights and guidance for our prayers. That truth lies at the core of Dave Kubal's Headline Prayer podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network.

In a recent episode, Kubal, president of Intercessors for America, discusses the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) in Seattle. He says CHAZ is "basically a new country, six square blocks ceded to a mob of protesters after the police chief was forced to abandon the station there. News reports indicate that rapper Raz Simone is one of the leaders in this new land. ... The police department apparently will be replaced with the 'people's department,' where the new leaders determine their own laws and will enforce them somehow.

"This is a perfect illustration of a truth that has played out over and over again throughout history," Kubal says. "There will never be an absence of authority; a vacuum of authority will always be filled by somebody. This also illustrates the necessity for the rule of law to be enforced. But when emotions are high, facts are irrelevant and very unpersuasive. For the most part, those involved in rioting and looting, and defacing public and private property are being driven by the motions and feelings of injustice. Right facts are immaterial. The protesters would just feel more outraged if you faced them with facts."
