Sunday February 25, 2018 “Good Advisors”

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 tonight.  We encourage you to join us in prayer daily and invite others to join us.

This might make life easier for the one leading but it does not necessarily bring the best results for those who are governed. Pray that our leaders will not fear some diversity of thought. We don’t need puppets for counselors. We need strategic thinkers who surround our leaders who will “speak the truth in love” Ephesians 4:15.
