1 Kings 15:18-19 Then Asa took all the silver and gold that was left in the treasuries of the house of the Lord and the treasuries of the king’s house, and delivered them into the hand of his servants. And King Asa sent them to Ben-Hadad the son of Tabrimmon, the son of Hezion, king of Syria, who dwelt in Damascus, saying, 19 “Let there be a treaty between you and me, as there was between my father and your father. See, I have sent you a present of silver and gold. Come and break your treaty with Baasha king of Israel, so that he will withdraw from me.”
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. 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.
Asa gave gifts to King Ben-Hadad of Syria so that Ben-Hadad would break treaties he had with other kings. In doing so Asa figured that it would help him. But that strategy doesn’t always work out as one hopes.
Prayer Focus #1: Pray for our president to have the mind of God concerning treaties made with other nations. Ben Hadad was not a man worthy of trust.
Prayer Focus #2: Financial gain promised in many treaties have not always proven to be good negotiating points. Covetousness can play a big part in agreements and that is sinful. Pray that our country will avoid those kinds of negotiation points.
Prayer Focus #3: Pray that our nation will not compromise our financial stability to leverage peace in the world community.
