Sunday, July 8, 2018 “War Only When Necessary

1 Kings 15:6-8 And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all the days of his life. Now the rest of the acts of Abijam, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? And there was war between Abijam and Jeroboam.So Abijam rested with his fathers, and they buried him in the City of David. Then Asa his son reigned in his place.
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 and invite others to join us.
The battles begun with Rehoboam and Jeroboam but did not end with Rehoboam’s death. Abijam, son of Rehoboam, carried on the conflict. Then Asa came along. Care must be taken that there not be feuding between brothers.
Prayer Focus #1: Pray that people in America will think twice before starting conflicts that can last for generations like we see in Congress today. Remember Jesus taught that a kingdom divided will not stand.
Prayer Focus #2: Abijam continued the warring spirit throughout his time as king. It is always best to consider what is worth having conflict over and what is not. Pray for a spirit of cooperation to touch America so we will not quarrel over things where we can find some areas of agreement. We need some “wins” in the land.
Prayer Focus #3: Abijam died and his son Asa then reigned. We will discover over the coming days that Asa had more good in him than his father. Pray that in political and family lines where evil has reigned that there will emerge some good leaders in America. Pray that there will be open and seeking hearts that desire truth and righteousness over family and political ties.
