Sunday March 4, 2018 “Be Careful Little Mouth”

1 Kings 12:13-14 Then the king answered the people roughly, and rejected the advice which the elders had given him;  and he spoke to them according to the advice of the young men, saying, “My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add to your yoke; my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scourges!”
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 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 tonight. We encourage you to join us in prayer daily and invite others to join us.
Prayer  Focus #1:  King Rehoboam spoke roughly to the people of Israel. Pray that our leaders in Washington will think twice before speaking to the public. Rough talk throws up walls and does nothing for one’s argument but puts up walls of separation.
Prayer Focus  #2:  Rehoboam refused the advice of the elders even after three days of consideration. The king did much talking, but it is not recorded that he prayed or had people pray for him that he would have the mind of God. Pray that our President and all federal, state, and local leaders will not only pray but call their jurisdictions to prayer, as we face many issues which affect not only everyday life but also the integrity of the Constitution we live by.
Prayer Focus #3:  Not only did King Rehoboam speak in a rough voice, he also spoke only from one side of the issue. A great leader will look at all sides of an issue and address concerns in a way that allows  everyone  to have a voice. Pray that our leaders will be as Scripture admonishes: Quick to listen and slow to speak.
