Sunday September 1, 2019 “Labor Day’s Coming”

1 Kings 1:3-4 New King James Version (NKJV)
3 So they sought for a lovely young woman throughout all the territory of Israel, and found Abishag the Shunammite, and brought her to the king. 4 The young woman was very lovely; and she cared for the king, and served him; but the king did not know her.
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.
Messengers went to the wrong “god” to receive an answer to King Ahaziah’s dilemma. Would he die from injuries related to a fall or would he recover? Tomorrow being Labor Day let’s think of this in terms of a fall and recovery in reference to economics.
Prayer Focus #1 The messengers went to a false god for answers that only the one true God of Israel could give. PRAY that Americans will turn to the God of our Nation for answers to the complicated economic challenges we face as individuals and as a nation.
Prayer Focus #2 An angel came with a word from Heaven that would challenge the messengers sent by the King. PRAY that God’s people will always go to God first when faced with difficult financial times and challenges in their businesses or places of employment. We have a great Jehovah Jireh – our all sufficient provider.
Prayer Focus #3 The Prophet Elijah spoke only the words that God gave through the Angel. Problems can be very complex in the financial realm but God can have simple and brief answers. What we need in America today is what the King needed in 2 Kings an answer from Heaven. I am sure it was not what he wanted to hear but it was God’s sufficiency for the day. PRAY that we can have an ear for God’s solutions to our many financial challenges domestically and internationally. Also PRAY that we can be satisfied with many times, a brief Word from Heaven, and not try to write a 300-page book on a two sentence answer from Heaven. Elijah’s brief response was enough.
