Sunday June 6, 2021 “A Good Payoff?”

2 Kings 15:20-22

20 And Menahem exactedthe money from Israel, from all the very wealthy, from each man fifty shekels of silver, to give to the king of Assyria. So the king of Assyria turned back, and did not stay there in the land. 21 Now the rest of the acts of Menahem, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? 22 So Menahem rested with his fathers. Then Pekahiah his son reigned in his place.

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 verse 19, King Menahem gave the king of Assyria 1,000 talents of silver for him to be there to strengthen Menahem’s control of Israel. In verse 20, we see that Pul, king of Assyria, did not stay in Israel. He returned to Assyria. Menahem died and his son took the throne.

Prayer Focus #1 Menahem levied high taxes on the rich to pay for the protection he never got. Pray that our leaders in Washington will see that high taxes from the rich never helps the lower and middle class because the wealthy don’t have the money to invest due to the higher taxes.

Prayer Focus #2 The king of Assyria “turned back.” He did not keep his promise for payment to help Menahem and Israel. Pray that our leaders will have wisdom in dealing with other nations and refrain from deals with those who never keep their word.

Prayer Focus #3 As with all men, king Menahem died. His son reigned after him. Pray that the “Menahems” will all realize their reigned after him. Pray that the “Manahems” will all realize their days are numbered and that one day all they have done is recorded in heaven. Heaven’s standards are justice and judgement. Pray they meet that standard.
