Sunday, December 2, 2018 “Choose, Prepare and Call”

1 Kings 18:25 Now Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one bull for yourselves and prepare it first, for you are many; and call on the name of your god but put no fire under it.
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.
Elijah knew that there is only one true God, so he challenged those who had brought idolatry to God’s people. He gave them a chance to prove that following Baal was the best thing for Israel. It is interesting that Elijah said, “Choose your bull.” It didn’t matter what the idolaters had to work with.
Prayer Focus #1: “Choose a bull for yourself.” Pray that politicians in Washington will boldly challenge those who desire to change our system of government and in so doing “Our God.” This great experiment founded on God and His principles for living are unmatched in the world in freedom, peace, justice and economic opportunity for all. The voice of Elijah would speak today— “Choose any area of life anywhere in the world.” God’s ways are always best. Show me where it is better. “Choose your bull—lets compare—anytime, anywhere.”
Prayer Focus #2: Elijah said, “Prepare the bull for yourself.” In other words, see if it works for you. Many proponents of socialism “save the earth, everything goes” mentality is not living the lifestyle they want to propose the common man to live under. Prepare the bull for yourself—come out of the Ivory Tower and live where most Americans do. Pray that people who promote a lifestyle and government that militates against who we are as a people and the God we worship will be exposed for their hypocrisy and lies.
Prayer Focus #3: Elijah said, “Go ahead call on the name of your god,” knowing that there will not be an answer. Pray that all Americans will take a look around the world and see what the condition is of the nations that either have a “god” they worship who is not the God of the Bible or who rely totally on human ingenuity and strength. A quick look reveals that any nation that rejects the one true God is without a doubt surviving on forced lifestyle and social status which limited human potential due to the lack of “blessing that makes rich with no sorrow added to it.” Pray that with open hearts all Americans will listen carefully to what people are saying on both sides of the political aisle and objectively choose to believe the truth.
