Sunday September 3, 2017 “The People, the House and the Land”

1 Kings 9:6-7 But if you or your sons at all turn from following Me, and do not keep My commandments and My statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods and worship them, then I will cut off Israel from the land which I have given them; and this house which I have consecrated for My name I will cast out of My sight. Israel will be a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
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.
Since the beginning of 2017 we have followed in 1 Kings the account of the beginning of Solomon’s reign as King of Israel.  Tonight we continue to use this book of the Bible as a prayer guide.  God bless you as you intercede with us on the behalf of America.  We need a revival today to prevent destruction tomorrow.
Prayer Focus #1: “I will cut off Israel from the land.”  We are seeing this in the beginning stages where God’s people with Biblical values and a love for country are being marginalized and muted in so many ways.  Pray that God’s people “keep themselves for lawlessness and idols so that when they are accused of wrong doing their accusers will be ashamed.”  1 Peter 3:16.
Prayer Focus #2:  The Temple was a place that God set apart for His name to be worshiped.  God said that if His people refused to keep His commands and statutes (ways of living) He would remove His name from the place of worship.  In the Book of Revelation 2:5 addressing the Church at Ephesus, Jesus said to repent and do the first works – love.  If not, He said the lamp stand would quickly be removed.  Our first love is Jesus Christ.  Pray that we keep that in proper focus and pray that it not be said of us as in the days of the Book of 1 Samuel “Ichabod”, the glory of the Lord, is departed from our churches in America.
Prayer Focus #3:  The Lord told Solomon should His people turn to disobedient children their land would become a byword among all peoples (countries).  Pray that God will stir our hearts to obedience and love so that America will continue to be a blessed and shining light, not an object of scorn from sea to shining sea.
