Sunday December 31, 2017 “The Eve of Something New”

Acts 1:12,14 12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey. 14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.
   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 9 pm 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.
On this New Year’s Eve let us pray that we will be ready for tomorrow’ blessings and challenges. None of us know what the future will bring the disciples knew that Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would come but what would that look like and what does that mean?
Well, place yourself with the early disciples on the eve of the Holy Spirit’s outpouring, tonight we will focus our prayers on preparation for the new year.
Focus #1 The believers went to Jerusalem as they were instructed. As we face a new year, let our prayers this evening focus on the Holy Spirit bringing Christmas together in a spirit of expectation for salvation, healing and deliverance in the year 2018 which begins tomorrow. We can then be free and empowered to bring salvation to America.
Focus #2 The early believers were gathered as one. As we peer around the corner into the new year let us see those things that unite us in salvation through Jesus Christ. Let us pray that the Lord of faith will bring us to the place of cooperation in the church that will bring a renewed passion to reach around the world with the gospel. We are so blessed in America to be so Bible rich, let us use our resources to win the world to Jesus.
Focus #3 There was great emphasis on prayer as the early believers gathered. Let us pray this night as we face many unknowns about the new year, that many believers will “faith” the future through prayer and fasting. We only receive from God as we call upon Him.
