Sunday, October 7, 2018 “Until the Lord Sends Rain”

1 Kings 17:14 For thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lord sends rain on the earth.’”
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 Gospels tell us the disciples asked themselves, “Who is this man (Jesus) that even the wind and waves obey Him?” God alone held in His hand the key that opens the heavens in Elijah’s day. There was nothing that would speed up or slow down the alarm clock set at the perfect time for rain to come ending the drought in the land. Very specifically God said, “No rain until…”
Prayer Focus #1: “Thus says the Lord God—Jehovah.” In this day it is difficult to determine who one is speaking of when they say “God” in America. Pray that Christians will boldly speak the name of Jesus when they quote the Bible or speak of God’s miraculous work in the earth so there will be no confusion as to who we speak of when we call on the Lord and give Him glory for His mighty works.
Prayer Focus #2: The prophet was clear there would be the miraculous multiplication of flour and oil until… God’s people would be cared for until the rains returned to the land. Pray with me tonight that there will be a strong confidence in God’s provision for America until the time when He pours out His Spirit (oil in typology) upon the nation empowering us to do the works of God that will awaken the church to her great calling to disciple the nation and reach around the globe with the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Prayer Focus #3: In Zechariah 10 we are encouraged to ask the Lord for rain in the time of the latter rain and He will give showers of rain. Pray tonight that those showers of Holy Spirit will begin to fall in the land and that thirsty souls will be quenched to fall in as we seek His heart. Then pray that out of our abundance of the Spirit we will pour out of the Spirit on this dry and thirsty land.
