Sunday, August 25, 2019 “Teach the Younger”

1 Kings 22:52-53 52 He did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father and in the way of his mother and in the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who had made Israel sin; 53 for he served Baal and worshiped him, and provoked the LORD God of Israel to anger, according to all that his father had done.
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.
There was much sinfulness for Ahaziah to learn from. Jesus said if you make a little one stumble it is better to have a millstone tied around the offender’s neck and throw them in the sea than to be that one who teaches others to sin.
Prayer Focus #1 v.52 tells us that Ahaziah’s parents taught Ahaziah evil. PRAY that God will raise up godly examples of righteousness to influence future leaders. With schools about to resume classes, PRAY that godly teachers will take on these roles.
Prayer Focus #2 Jeroboam, the king, left an example of unrighteousness for others to follow. PRAY that God will send His “Ambassadors” to influence the Jeroboams of this world for good. Leaders are the best they can be when they realize they must leave the world into younger hands and their later years will be in the hands of those they have taught.
Prayer Focus #3 The worse of all sins is idolatry and many of Israel’s kings fell into it. PRAY that America will always be known as one nation under God – The one True God of the Bible. We must not provoke God to anger. Let us provoke one another to faith and good works.
