Sunday July 20, 2014 “Choirs That Rock”

Nehemiah 12:31, 38, 40, 43 “31 So I brought the leaders of Judah up on the wall, and appointed two large thanksgiving choirs. One went to the right hand on the wall toward the Refuse Gate.  38 The other thanksgiving choir went the opposite way, and I was behind them with half of the people on the wall, going past the Tower of the Ovens as far as the Broad Wall.  40 So the two thanksgiving choirs stood in the house of God, likewise I and the half of the rulers with me.  43 Also that day they offered great sacrifices, and rejoiced, for God had made them rejoice with great joy; the women and the children also rejoiced, so that the joy of Jerusalem was heard afar off.”

Welcome to our Sunday evening “flagship” gathering of WATP.  Thank you for being a part of a movement that is changing America one prayer at a time.

If you are new to this intercessory movement we welcome you as we spend at least 15 minutes in prayer following the focus points below.  We pray in agreement from 6-9 pm (all time zones).

Prayer Focus #1:  Pray that choirs and worship teams in America who lead Christians into God’s presence through praise do so with grateful hearts as they did in Nehemiah’s day.  As the Psalmist wrote, we are to enter His gates with thanksgiving in our hearts continually.

Prayer Focus #2:  Pray that the streams of worship in America, both hymns and choruses, come together in compliment not competition.  We need to be open to these two streams coming together in connectedness as we honor church history and praise God in New Song worship.  Pray for an appreciation of both styles of music as we strive to worship in spirit and truth.

Prayer Focus #3:  Pray for opportunities to take the songs of the Lord outside of the church and into the streets.  Also pray for the anointing of God to be upon the worship in our churches so that people who come from “far away” from God will experience the nearness of God’s presence and bring others to worship with them and to experience God with them.

Please pray for families of loved ones lost on the Malaysian airliner and that the situation be handled wisely by the world community, especially by our country.  Pray that truth be revealed concerning who was responsible.

Also pray for the crisis in Israel concerning Gaza.  Pray for the protection of innocent lives and that the world community see the situation through the eyes of truth.  Finally, pray that the United States continue to support our strongest ally in that area of the world, Israel, for in doing so we will be blessed.  Gen 12:3
