Sunday March 19, 2017 “Good Supervision”

1 Kings 5:15-16  15 Solomon had seventy thousand who carried burdens, and eighty thousand who quarried stone in the mountains, 16 besides three thousand three hundred from the chiefs of Solomon’s deputies, who supervised the people who labored in the work.
Good evening and welcome to the Sunday Night Edition of “We are the People” prayer for America.  Every Sunday we bring  together the hearts of intercessors that choose to invest a minimum of 15 minutes in prayers of agreement between the hours of 6 and 9pm using the three focus points listed below as a guide.  May God bless you for your concern for America’s future expressed in prayer this night.  We encourage you to join us in prayer daily and invite others to join us.
We have been using the early days of King Solomon’s reign as a prayer guide over the past couple of weeks.  In our scripture text tonight we find Solomon securing workmen for the task of building the temple of God.  He also appointed supervisors.
Prayer Focus #1:  70,000 men would carry burdens.  These were the common laborers.  Let us pray tonight that there will be men and women who will gladly take jobs that seem common but they are necessary to carry on normal life in America.  Pray that people who do these jobs will do their work as unto the Lord, not just do things to get the job done or to be seen of men.
Prayer Focus #2:  80,000 workers quarried stone which required more skill than the common laborer.  Pray that workmen in America who perform skilled work will have a special spirit of cunning workmanship.  God gave the workers on the ancient Tabernacle a special spirit so their work glorified God.  May all of God’s people in America lead the way by an example of excellence in the workplace giving glory to God in today’s workforce.
Prayer Focus #3:  The ratio of workers to supervisors appointed to the work was about 50 to 1.  Let us pray that as our economic engine increases in prosperity and performance we will not over supervise workers.  There must be supervision but not so much that business becomes top heavy, unprofitable and not competitive in the world market.  Also pray that we will continue to be creative and on the cutting edge of new technology.
