Sunday, January 27, 2019 “Zealous Saints”

1 Kings 19:10 So he said, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.”
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.
At times we feel that if we have a zeal for God that all will be well. Truth is as we grow in our commitment to the Lord, we will experience resistance from our enemies—spiritually and human enemies. We cannot allow these attacks to intimidate us or cause us to “back off” in our zeal for righteousness and truth.
Prayer Focus #1: The people of God forsook the Word of God. Pray that our national leaders will not govern according to the way the wind blows but according to God’s Word even when it is not popular.
Prayer Focus #2: God’s people tore down the altars of the Lord. The altar is representative of prayer. The government eliminated prayer in public schools and many other venues have been affected by decisions like this. The result has been a reduction in the value of prayer in our nation. Pray that the “altars” of prayers be rebuilt in our homes, churches and public venues. God’s word stands sure, “If my people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.”  
Prayer Focus #3: “They have killed your prophets.” Today in America we don’t kill the prophets (priests and pastors) as much as we silence them by intimidation and fear to speak truth to an anti-God culture. Pray that God will work within the powers that be to renew the right to speak God’s ideas on issues without fear of retribution. America needs a renewed love for the truth that liberates us from the lies of the enemy of righteousness.
