Luke 1:15-17   For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. 16 And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. 17 He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
 Yesterday we saw that the worker in the Temple, Zacharias, received a word from heaven that there would be a reversal of fortune.  God would answer his prayer and the result will be joy and rejoicing;
    In v. 15-17 we see the Holy Spirit work in the lives of many, being the result of God answering the worker’s prayer. Salvations, reconciliation and wisdom that changes the direction of life for many is seen in the text.
  As we intercede today, let us remember that the answer to 1 prayer today can impact many people as individuals and even a nation in the days to come  Pray that American workers practice hard work and prayer as they perform their duties that can not only provide food and shelter but love and cooperation.
