Sunday January 3, 2016 “Looking Good”

Zechariah 9:17  “For how great is its goodness And how great its beauty! Grain shall make the young men thrive, And new wine the young women.”
Welcome to the Sunday evening edition of “We are the People” prayer initiative. I hope you enjoyed bringing in the New Year and spent time in prayer for America to return to God and follow His will that His purposes become a reality in 2016.

As always we ask that you invest at least 15 minutes tonight in intercession concerning the three prayer focus points listed below between the hours of 6 and 9 pm.
Prayers of agreement are powerful and as we gather our hearts together on this first Sunday of the new year, let us remember that if two or more agree on earth touching and agreeing the request will be granted by our Father in heaven.
Prayer Focus #1 “How great is its goodness.” This refers to the land and the people. We have all heard “as long as America is good we will remain great.” Pray that goodness and mercy follow God’s people all the days of their lives as the Psalmist David wrote. We know that God is good so let us be imitators of God as dear children as individuals. Let us also pray that as a nation we pass laws and establish policies that will allow us to show the goodness of God to the world. Our goodness comes from our awesome God who is very good to all.
Prayer Focus #2 “How Great is thy beauty.” God shows off His Spirit within His people. As the Queen of Sheba was overwhelmed by all that Solomon was blessed with, let the world wonder at the way that God beautifies the church with His glory. Pray those believers in America pursue the heart of God to the extent that the Nations of the world will say of us “How lovely on the mountains are the feet of Him who brings good news.”
Prayer Focus #3 “The Young men and women will thrive.” In recent years many young Americans, even those with college degrees are merely surviving instead of thriving. Let us pray tonight that young men and women understand the prophetic words spoken concerning them. God says that young men will see visions and the young ladies will prophesy through Holy Spirit empowerment. This opens the door for God’s will being done in and through them and as they follow the Lord they shall thrive.
