Sunday September 28, 2014 “Judging and Praying”

1 Samuel 7:15-17 “15 And Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life. 16 He went from year to year on a circuit to Bethel, Gilgal, and Mizpah, and judged Israel in all those places. 17 But he always returned to Ramah, for his home was there. There he judged Israel, and there he built an altar to the Lord.”
When we are told that Samuel “judged” Israel in verse 15 all of his days, we understand that he distinguished between right and wrong as the “Supreme Court” of Israel. Verse 16 tells us there was a standard throughout the land and in verse 17 we are told that Samuel always spent time in his hometown of Ramah.  This we assume would be to keep in touch with the common people and we are also told that Samuel built an altar there.
Today is Sunday and tonight we pray in agreement concerning 3 focus points for our nation. There is a flagship prayer meeting from 8-9pm EST but we ask that people pray across America (all time zones) at least 15 minutes between the hours of 6 and 9 pm.
We welcome you tonight as we intercede for America and encourage you to invite others on your social media networks to join us every week on
Prayer Focus #1: That our court systems always use the rule of law not precedent as the standard for judgment.  Samuel did this all his days.  He did not change with the times.
Prayer Focus #2: Pray that the word of God which defines right from wrong be our standard in every state in our union and from wrong be our standard in every state in our union and in every situation.  The Bible teaches us that if foundations are removed what can the righteous do?  Also pray that all Christian streams come together on what is biblically correct according to righteousness not emotions or feelings.  This will restore the credibility of the church and reveal our unity to a watching world.  This will restore the fear of God as He confirms His word as in the Book of Acts.
Prayer Focus #3: Pray that leaders in Washington keep in touch with the citizenry of their states and districts they represent and that they represent the people when voting on issues of law and policy.  Samuel did this.  He never forgot his roots nor did he forget God.  He built an altar.  Pray that there be a stirring among Christian leaders to be men and women of prayer at the altar of surrender to the will of God at any cost politically.
