Sunday, December 16, 2018 “A New Identity”

1 Kings 18:31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord had come, saying, “Israel shall be your name.”
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 included all the tribes of Israel in rebuilding the altar in the Name of the Lord. He also reminded all the people that they were given a new name by the Lord.
Prayer Focus #1 Pray that all of Christianity in America will rebuild the altar of faith and biblical prayer. That mixed with corresponding actions will change the nation and God’s blessings will flow in a greater way.
Prayer Focus #2 Jacob became known as Israel. A new name was given to this son of Isaac. Israel means a prince with God and man. Pray that America will be recognized in the world community as a people known for our faith in God as much as our military and financial prowess sets us apart as being a blessed people among all men.
Prayer Focus #3 God gave the word that Jacob and his sons would be recognized by their new name given to them by God. Pray tonight that the next generation of Americans will understand the exceptionalism placed upon this land by the faith and prayer of our founding fathers. Also pray that our children and grandchildren will burn as a bright and burning light to the world in fulfilling the great commission to make Jesus famous around the world.
