Sunday, July 1, 2018 “Loyalty of Heart”

1 Kings 15:1-3 In the eighteenth year of King Jeroboam the son of Nebat, Abijam became king over Judah. He reigned three years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Maachah the granddaughter of Abishalom. And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him; his heart was not loyal to the Lord his God, as was the heart of his father David.

 

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.

 

Three years Abijam was King. But it didn’t take long for him to learn to sin like his father Rehoboam. Sin always leads to one’s heart becoming wicked. The Bible is clear on the issue, “Don’t be overly wicked and die before your time.”
 
Prayer Focus #1: Abijam chose to follow his dad’s ways which led to war between Israel and Judah all of Rehoboam and Jeroboam’s days. Pray that our leaders in America will see that “a house divided will fall” and that they will humble themselves and accept the Lordship of Jesus Christ and devote themselves to following righteousness and righteous leaders.
 
Prayer Focus #2: Abijam was not loyal to God in his heart. Pray that leaders and citizens in America will be loyal in their heart to God, not voters or parties. When a man’s ways please the Lord, even his enemies will be at peace with him.
 
Prayer Focus #3: David’s loyalty to God was unquestionable. He never turned to other gods. Pray that this one nation under God and our Constitution which is founded on the Bible will continue as a land that honors God and His ways in decision making and policy in all three branches of government.
