Sunday, January 13, 2019 “Do Not Despair”

1 Kings 19:4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!”
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.
Twice Elijah prayed that his days on earth would come to an end. In sharing with His disciples concerning the last days Jesus said, “the love of many will grow cold.” When that happens despair sets in the soul of followers of God seeing what is happening on the earth. Tonight, let’s focus our intercession on this danger that can torment even the great Prophet Elijah.
Prayer Focus #1: Pray that both church and civil leaders that have a heart for righteousness will not live in despair seeing what is happening on the earth and especially in our nation.
Prayer Focus #2: Pray that God’s people in America will not say, “it is enough.” Bind the spirits of hell that seduce people into hopelessness about life and truth in this day of confusion and loosen a spirit of truth as you speak over the nation.
Prayer Focus #3: Pray that Christian will not focus on what “the fathers” have done that “missed the mark” in years past. Pray that we will have a vision of what can yet be done if we keep our eyes on the Father and pleasing Him in these difficult days when truth is cast aside and lies are embraced.
