Sunday July 2, 2017 “Taken by the Right Hand”

Isaiah 45:1 “Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held—to subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut.
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 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. 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.
Last Sunday and today – just two days before Independence Day we are using the words of the Prophet Isaiah as a guide for prayer as our thoughts are on freedom.
Prayer Focus #1:  God called Cyrus, “His anointed.”  In Hebrew the original word means “to set in the office of”.  I am sure that many of the Jewish people thought that Cyrus had ulterior motives in his involvement in restoring God’s people to their land, their religious liberties and worship.  But history tells us otherwise.
Pray today that God’s people who love their Christian liberties in America will choose to believe that God still takes people by the right hand and leads them.  The people of God must unite in their prayers for those whom God places in authority that they will sense their right hand being in the Lord’s hand and follow His lead as we recover from a lack of obedience to God’s ways.
Prayer Focus #2:  God’s right hand led King Cyrus to lead his nation to a position of leadership among nations and reduced the threat of neighboring nations.
Pray today that the current administration, Senate and the House of Representatives will be led by the Spirit of God in how to deal with all nations in our global community to bring the Gospel of Peace to America and other nations while being wise as serpents in dealing with nations that reject the Gospel.
Prayer Focus #3:  The word of God declares doors will be open and gates will not be shut.  Freedom will be revealed in both doors of opportunity being opened and gates that protect will have no need to be closed for God will watch over the land and its people.
Pray today that the doors of the hearts of leaders will be open to work together for the benefit of all Americans.  Freedom that comes from God is the result of the unity that is the result of like-mindedness.  When people care for one another they don’t need to have an attitude that we must protect ourselves from one another.  Instead we recognize the enemies from without and bar the gates against their attempt to divide and conquer through division and strife.
