Sunday July 27, 2014 Prayer Focus

Nehemiah  13:1-3 “On that day they read from the Book of Moses in the hearing of the people, and in it was found written that no Ammonite or Moabite should ever come into the assembly of God, because they had not met the children of Israel with bread and water, but hired Balaam against them to curse them. However, our God turned the curse into a blessing. So it was, when they had heard the Law, that they separated all the mixed multitude from Israel.”
   Welcome once again to our Sunday evening prayers of agreement.  It is asked that each intercessor spend at least 15 minutes in prayer focusing on the 3 areas concerning our nation listed below between the hours of 6 and 9 pm  (all time zones).  According to Jesus, prayers of agreement in faith guarantee a positive response by our Father in heaven.
   The scripture verses above describe Israel’s response to God’s clearly stated words concerning the enemies of God’s people.  Let us learn from their example and pray that we who are God’s people in America will follow their example.
Prayer Focus #1  Pray that our leaders be wiser than our enemies who join forces as Ammon, Moab and the “Prophet” Balaam did. There are times when the majority is not right nor are they to be feared by those who choose to follow God’s ways in a world of confusion and conflicting stories about world situations.
Prayer Focus #2  Let us agree in prayer that the many curses that have been aimed at us by enemies without and within, whether that be terrorism or the destruction of Judeo-Christian values in society, be turned around by exposing the dangers of evil influences on our nation.
Prayer Focus #3  Our final prayer point tonight is based on v.3.  God’s
 people who were restoring truth and worship to their land separated the mixed multitude from Israel. Pray first that our leaders in Washington be wise in allowing people  into our nation and governmental positions who will bring blessing to America. Secondly, pray from wisdom in policy making that will keep evil doers out of important positions.
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 for Air Algerie flight 5017 which is missing.
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
