Sunday August 9, 2015 Weekly Prayer Focus

Zechariah 2:5-7 “5 For I, says the Lord, will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst. 6 Up, Up! Flee from the land of the north, says the Lord; for I have spread you abroad like the four winds of heaven, says the Lord. 7 Up, Zion! Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon.”
Welcome to the Sunday Night Edition of “We Are the People” prayer for America. It is asked that you invest a minimum of 15 minutes in intercession for America. Below we have a prayer guide to follow so we can offer prayers of agreement between the hours of 6 and 9 pm (all time zones). Thanks for joining us and do invite someone to join us in prayer for this land we love.
Prayer Focus #1: In a day where we see unprotected borders in America, geographic and otherwise, this word to Israel is a real encouragement to us all. Of course the Lord gave words of instruction first so He could build a wall of protection around His people. The Word of God reveals that the Lord has His angels “round about those who fear Him.”  Pray that there be a healthy fear of the Lord in His people that will open the way for God to build that wall of fire around us, “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”
Prayer Focus #2: “I will be the glory in her midst.” It is so easy to take our eyes off of the Lord of glory and onto the wonders of man. With all of our technological knowledge and military might even believers can get caught up in man’s accomplishments.
Tonight let us focus our prayers on the truth found in Zephaniah 3:17 “The Lord your God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”
Prayer Focus #3: There is no doubt that America is scattered and shattered like Israel of old. God calls his people to flee from the place where you are like sheep that are scattered. Escape the godless Babylonian attitudes and culture is what God says to His people.  The Apostle Paul wrote the church in Corinth encouraging the people to “come out and be separated and touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you to myself as sons and daughters.”
Pray tonight that God’s people heed that call and discover the blessing of unity as they return to the Lord and the fellowship of the church. The sleeping giant aroused and unified will “fundamentally change” (restore) America to its former glory where the Lord in our midst shows Himself as the Mighty Warrior God.
