Sunday May 22, 2016 “Mighty Through God”

2Corinthians 10:4 & 5 4 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,”
Welcome to the Sunday Night edition of “We are the People” prayer for America. Over the past week we have been focusing on the art of Intercessory Prayer for the salvation of souls in our nation. The goal is to pray effectively for people to receive Biblical salvation.
  It is asked that you invest a minimum of 15 minutes in prayer following the three focus points listed below.
  God bless you for having a heart for the soul of our nation and it would be appreciated if you would invite others to join us this evening and every day following one prayer point as we lift prayers of agreement to the Father.
Focus “#1 We are equipped through the Holy Spirit to bring human logic and arguments down in the Name of Jesus. Pray in agreement that reason and philosophies of men that blind people to the glory of Christ be demolished.
   The ideas of man that persuades people that there is no God or a God who is not personally involved with man and dependence upon religion or human works are examples.  Let the Spirit of God guide you in identifying those things to pull down and cast down through spiritual warfare.
Focus #2  Pray that God’s people utilize all kinds of prayer in the Spirit, Ephesians 6:18, to bring every high thing low
that keeps men captive to the persuasion of evil spirits who are under the command of Satan. Principalities and powers of the air must yield to the word of the Lord in the heart and spoken through the lips of Spirit-filled believers.
An example of “high things” is the admiration of men and women who promote the supremacy of man over the authority of God in their political and social viewpoints. Pray with all prayer.
Focus #3  Paul is saying in the last part of v.5 that the weapons of warfare  that believers have will help people focus on Jesus Christ. Let us pray that believers in America keep their focus on Jesus even during the social quagmire we find ourselves in.
  Let us also pray that people who are not yet Christ-followers will be exposed to people who are living in obedience to Jesus Christ and see the blessings of those things of God’s kingdom like righteousness, peace and joy.
  A spiritual awakening is what we need in America today.
