Sunday March 1, 2020 “Wild Gourds”

2 Kings 4:39 & 40 So one went out into the field to gather herbs, and found a wild vine, and gathered from it a lapful of wild gourds, and came and sliced them into the pot of stew, though they did not know what they were. 40 Then they served it to the men to eat. Now it happened, as they were eating the stew, that they cried out and said, “Man of God, there is death in the pot!” And they could not eat 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 6:00p.m. 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.

In the previous verse Elisha told the servants to put on a large pot to make some stew for the sons of the prophets. One of the servants went out to gather some ingredients He gathered wild gourds from a wild vine and then sliced up gourds were put in the stew. The gourds were poisonous and as the young men ate, they cried out to Elisha, “There is death in the pot.”

Let us consider the stew meant to nourish is the rule of law in America. The wild gourds will be different political and religious streams that can be brought into America. With this in mind, let us pray.
Prayer Focus #1 There are many who gather thoughts and ideas to bring to this nation from our every shrinking world. Pray that the gathering that comes from outside of our Judeo-Christian and Capitalistic foundations will be exposed for what they are “death in the pot” to our political, financial and religious beliefs and be rejected by all true Patriots in the land.
Prayer Focus #2 Those gathering and cooking didn’t actually know what it was that they were gathering for the students at the school of the prophets to eat. Pray that there will be sincere seeking hearts in America that will want to know the whole truth concerning some ideas that people say are true and good for America before accepting these “wild gourd” ideas that become deadly when “mixed” with our established democratic republic form of government.
Prayer Focus #3 Pray that there will be voices – loud, clear and informative that will sound the alarm that there is death in the pot” to avoid if our nation is to prosper in the twenty-first century politically, financially and religiously.
