Sunday June 29, 2014 “The Rest of the People”

Nehemiah 10:1 and 28 “1Now those who placed their seal on the document were: Nehemiah the governor, the son of Hacaliah, and Zedekiah, etc.  28 Now the rest of the people—the priests, the Levites, the gatekeepers, the singers, the Nethinim, and all those who had separated themselves from the peoples of the lands to the Law of God, their wives, their sons, and their daughters, everyone who had knowledge and understanding-
Welcome to this weekly time of intercession for America the land we love.  The people in the land were serious about their nation returning to God in Chapter 10 of Nehemiah.  There are many leaders who signed the covenant in verse 2-27.  We then see the rest of the people signed on.  This was a unanimous decision for righteousness.
Our 3 prayer focuses tonight from 6-9pm (all time zones) will be a time of intercession for people groups within the household of faith represented in the first part of this verse.  Thanks for joining us and invite others to join us at http://www.wearethepeople.me.
Prayer Focus #1:  Pray for the priests and Levites of our day – the church leaders, Bishops, Presbyters, etc. who establish policy on how their particular stands concern issues that impact culture and our future as Christians in America.  Pray that they stand firm in the truth regardless of the persecution or criticisms they might face.
Prayer Focus #2:  Pray for the Gatekeepers.  Those at the “grass roots” – Pastors, Elders, etc. who, at the local level, speak God’s word and help people apply that word to everyday living.  There must be a return of “Preachers of Righteousness” in our pulpits if we will experience a new awakening of God’s love, power and salvation in our day.
Prayer Focus #3:  Pray for “the singers.”  Music has always been an attraction in all generations and in every culture throughout human history.  Music focuses attention on the Lord in eternity and it is meant to bring attention to God and his righteousness on the earth.
Let us pray that Christian artists hear the voice of God and be inspired to write new songs that will draw attention to Jesus and the need for righteousness to be restored in our land.
