1 Kings 20:9-11
9 Wherefore he said unto the messengers of Ben-Hadad, Tell my lord the king, All that thou didst send for to thy servant at the first I will do: but this thing I may not do. And the messengers departed, and brought him word again. 10 And Ben-Hadad sent unto him, and said, The gods do so unto me, and more also, if the dust of Samaria shall suffice for handfuls for all the people that follow me. 11 And the king of Israel answered and said, Tell him, Let not him that girdeth on his harness boast himself as he that putteth it off. Then the messengers came back and said, “Thus speaks Ben-Hadad, saying, ‘Indeed I have sent to you, saying, “You shall deliver to me your silver and your gold, your wives and your children”; 6 but I will send my servants to you tomorrow about this time, and they shall search your house and the houses of your servants. And it shall be, that whatever is pleasant in your eyes, they will put it in their hands and take 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 p.m. 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.
Prayer Focus #1 That President Trump will have wisdom in those things that are non-negotiables. – How we can “stand our ground” as Americans and not be pushed around in areas that we cannot compromise on the world stage.
Prayer Focus #2 King Ben-Hadad threatened God’s people. The enemy of good threatens to create fear. Pray that our nation will be courageous and not give in to terrorist demands of any shape or form. Faith must be the banner held high in our world today.
Prayer Focus #3 In verse 11 – The King of Israel responded to Ben-Hadad’s threats saying more or less, “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.” WOW! Nerves of steel came from the man of God. Pray that the church will rise up with a spirit of faith and tell the adversary we will not give in to threats. We will not fear, for God is on our side and we will stand on the solid ground of God’s Truth in these days of ever-changing ideas of right and wrong. Stand firm my brothers and sisters. We are living in a day where God is restoring “backbone” in His church.
