Sunday November 29, 2015 “God’s With His People”

Zechariah 8:22-23 “22 Yes, many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, And to pray before the Lord.’ 23 “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”
Good evening and welcome to the Sunday Night Edition of “We Are the People” prayer for America.  Thanks for joining us and we trust you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday.
Tonight we will once again pray in agreement concerning three focus points between the hours of 6 and 9 pm (all time zones).  If you are so inclined, invite people on your social networks and other relationship circles to join us every Sunday evening and every other day as we find ways to pray through God’s Holy Word.
Prayer Focus #1:   Many peoples and strong nations will come to seek the Lord and pray in Jerusalem.  In Zechariah’s day Jerusalem was the center of worship.  Today the centers of worship are churches.  Let us join our hearts in intercession tonight that as we enter the Christmas holiday season that many people will respond to invitations to Christmas Plays, Choir Performances and services on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and that non-believers will come with open hearts and seek the Lord.  Pray that Christians have the courage to invite those from many nations that have become our neighbors.
Prayer Focus #2:  These verses tell us of people taking hold of a believer and asking, “Let us go with you.”  Pray that there be both a curiosity that will draw people to Christ and His church and that there be such an awe of God in the seeker’s life that they will feel they must request permission to join the believers in prayer.
Prayer Focus #3:  The word was out – other nations heard that God was with His people and those who heard desired to join the believers.  Pray tonight that God’s people in America allow the Spirit of God to work in them in such a way that non-believers see Jesus in them.  Jesus taught in John 13:35 that the true mark of being Christ-followers where the presence of God is evident is through loving one another.  Pray that we display that kind of care and concern for other Christians so that the world around us see “Christ in us the hope of glory.”
