Sunday, August 12, 2018 “Zimri Under the Influence”

1 Kings 16:9-10 Now his servant Zimri, commander of half his chariots, conspired against him as he was in Tirzah drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza, steward[c] of his house in Tirzah. 10 And Zimri went in and struck him and killed him in the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and 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.
Zimri must have been a very capable man for the king to make him overseer to half of his elite charioteers. But personal weaknesses and bad relationships created an environment for evil to creep into his heart.
Prayer Focus #1: Pray that God will reveal weaknesses that could threaten the work that God has for our leaders during this very pivotal time in our nation. Alcohol clouded Zimri’s vision and changed him into a murderer.
Prayer Focus #2: Zimri got drunk in Arza’s house. Arza was not a true friend. Friends don’t allow friends to go out in drunken stupor. Pray that people who are placed in support positions in our government will be careful as to who they choose as friends. Arza was not a good steward of rights and responsibilities he was given.
Prayer Focus #3: Zimri conspired against Elah. Pray that God will reveal the hearts of men so that our leaders will not trust those unworthy of it.
