Sunday August 29 2021 “Teach Them”

2 Kings 17:27

“Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, “Send there one of the priests whom you brought from there; let him go and dwell there, and let him teach them the rituals of the God of the land.”

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 26 of this chapter, we read that due to the fact that the people were placed in the cities of Samaria who did not know the “God of the land” they were attacked and killed by lions. Satan is called the “roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.” Those who do not know and serve “the God of America” will be eaten alive by the devil because they do not know our God’s ways. They will also bring the confusion of their “gods” by preaching and practicing their ways like what happened in ancient Samaria.

Let us pray that we will apply the principles of long ago to our current situation in America. The heart of the American dream is only fulfilled in the lives of those who have the foundation of Christ Jesus and God’s Word.

Prayer Focus #1 As the heathen king of Assyria agreed to send one of Israel’s priests to instruct those who had settled in Samaria, pray there will be an understanding among our leaders that the influx of people with different religious beliefs must be met with Christian believers being “sent” to instruct the stranger in the land so they will not be devoured because of their ignorance of God’s ways.

Prayer Focus #2 Pray that Christian believers whom God desires to use to bring non-believers to Jesus and His ways will be willing to do so and bring new believers to church and discipleship.

Prayer Focus #3 The king of Assyria told the priests to teach the new people in the land the rituals of the God of the land. Pray that true believers in America will not get so caught up in the good works that they fail to introduce people to Jesus. Pray that we will be as Jesus taught “wise as serpents, harmless as doves.”
