Sunday November 2, 2014 “Fallen Fathers”

2 Chronicles 29:9-10 “For indeed, because of this our fathers have fallen by the sword; and our sons, our daughters, and our wives are in captivity. 10 “Now it is in my heart to make a covenant with the Lord God of Israel, that His fierce wrath may turn away from us.”
Over the last couple of weeks our focus in prayer has been revival. Tonight we will focus on these two verses that speak of God’s people who fell away from the Lord because they neglected the house of the Lord.  The result was devastating.
Welcome to the Sunday night edition of “We Are the People”. We ask that you pray in agreement for a minimum of 15 minutes between the hours of 6 and 9pm all time zones.  Together we can change the heart of our nation by changing the hearts of men.  God bless you for your commitment to a better America through prayer.    Tuesday is Election Day across America – pray and cast your ballot wisely.
Prayer Focus #1: Verse 9 tells us that the fathers fell by the sword.  God’s hand of protection had been lifted due to the evil committed by the fathers in verse 6 of this chapter.  They turned their backs away from worship and then they turned their backs on God Himself.  Many fathers in America have failed to fulfill their role as leaders and protectors in the land.  Because of this they have lost their influence and it is as though they have fallen by the sword.
Pray that the “fathers” of the land will return to their God-given responsibilities and turn to God and His house of worship. Revival will come as “dads” lead the way to repentance and righteousness.
Prayer Focus #2: Verse 9 reveals that the women and children were taken captive due to the lack of strong leadership by the men.  Pray that the effects of this lack of godly influence be broken from the lives of women and children who have been told lies which they have chosen to believe and has resulted in their captivity by the lies of the evil one who twists truth about family, sex and sin.
Prayer Focus #3: Verse 10  God’s hand of protection had been lifted and His hand of discipline had fallen upon the land.  The king recognized what was happening and it came into His heart to make a covenant with God.  God has made a final and all-sufficient covenant with all men who will believe through the cross of Jesus Christ.  Pray tonight that leaders in America be open to the conviction of the Holy Spirit and turn to God with all of their heart and guide our beloved nation into righteousness.
