Sunday May 19, 2019 “Depression Diffused”

1 Kings 21:4-6- So Ahab went into his house sullen and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him; for he had said, “I will not give you the inheritance of my fathers.” And he lay down on his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no food.  But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said to him, “Why is your spirit so sullen that you eat no food?” He said to her, “Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite, and said to him, ‘Give me your vineyard for money; or else, if it pleases you, I will give you another vineyard for it.’ And he answered, ‘I will not give you my vineyard.’ ”
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 6:00 and 9:00p.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.
Ahab was depressed due to the lack of successful negotiations with Naboth, as usual Jezebel would not let an opportunity for control pass her by. Her false concern for Ahab’s condition brought the King to the place where he allowed his sulking to bring him to the place of telling Jezebel part of his story that later led to a catastrophic end.
Prayer Focus #1: Pray that a spirit of depression will not prosper against our president and his advisers due to the stress of ongoing scrutiny.
Prayer Focus #2: Pray that our president and other key leaders will not open their hearts and minds to entrusting people have ulterior motives like Jezebel had.
Prayer Focus #3: When Ahab spoke to Jezebel concerning Naboth’s vineyard, he failed to communicate that the lack of a deal for the ground was due to the inheritance piece that Naboth told Ahab about. Pray that in times of serious negotiations concerning our nation, that all important facts will be communicated so that there will be a good basis for agreements to be made that will impact our future.
