Sunday February 13, 2022 “Good Things When Things When Things Are Bad”

2 Corinthians 7:4

“4 Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my boasting on your behalf. I am filled with comfort. I am exceedingly joyful in all our tribulation.”

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.

Paul was addressing a church that was not perfect. In his first letter, he spoke of many problems within the church. Here he commends the church and he boldly spoke of the good things happening with Corinth. Jesus later did the same in addressing the 7 churches of Asia in Revelation chapters 2 and 3.

Prayer Focus Point #1: Pray that the church would not only boldly speak of the things that are contrary to the word of God that are being accepted as societal norms but also be thankful for those things that are positive, productive things that are happening.

Prayer Focus Point #2: Paul said he was comforted. Pray that we will be comforted by the fact that we are able to maintain a Christ-like attitude in the midst of an anti-Christian environment.

Prayer Focus Point #3: The Apostle was able to maintain a joyful heart in the great difficulties he faced doing the work of God and preaching the Gospel. Pray that the church will maintain the inner joy of the Lord that will give us strength as we face the trials and tribulations of living truth in a world that has chosen to believe a lie.
