Sunday October 18, 2020 “True Reporting”

2 Kings 9:18  So the horseman went to meet him, and said, “Thus says the king: ‘Is it peace?’ ”And Jehu said, “What have you to do with peace? Turn around and follow me.” So the watchman reported, saying, “The messenger went to them, but is not coming back.”

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.

As we discussed in the prayer blog we see in this scripture text an Old Testament typology of testing the spirit working that determines if it is of God or not.  The horseman was sent to discern if there was peace present or not.  Considering that mission as one sent from God to one of His servants, let us pray that God reveals to us how we can determine peace from war in the heart of men.  You cannot always determine the motive in the heart of man from the words of his mouth.

Psalms 55:21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, But war was in his heart;
His words were softer than oil, Yet they were drawn swords.

Prayer Focus #1  The horseman (messenger) challenged the stranger: “Do you come in peace?”  A good training ground for operating in the gift of diserning of spirits is watching the Senate hearings concerning the Supreme Court nominee.  It is embarrassing to watch and listen to the proceedings.  Pray that there will be a discerning spirit among those who will be making their voice known in the Senate and that the American public will determine the truth.

Prayer Focus #2  Jehu challenged the messenger – “What do you have to do with peace? Turn or change your mind and follow me.” Pray that men and women of principle and Constitutionalists will influence their peers in the Senate when voting time comes.

Prayer Focus #3  The Watchman gave a report that was true.  Pray that there will be reporters in the Media who will report the truth, not as they see things which is very subjective and influenced by ratings and popularity.
