2 Corinthians 11:9-10

And when I was present with you, and in need, I was a burden to no one, for what I lacked the brethren who came from Macedonia supplied. And in everything I kept myself from being burdensome to you, and so I will keep myself10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no one shall stop me from this boasting in the regions of Achaia.”

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 with the church in Corinth but never became a burden to them. Let us pray that in this land of plenty that God’s people will find themselves as Paul – able to provide for themselves so that only people who truly cannot provide for themselves can be helped.

Prayer Focus Point #1: Paul was in need but refused to burden others, so he used his trade of tent making to “pay his way.” Pray that people in America who can work will work and by doing so, lighten the load on all taxpayers.

Prayer Focus Point #2: Paul said he kept himself from being a burden to others. Pray that that same attitude will be that of all believers in America. We all must return to God’s mandate that every man bear his own burden so the whole country is not bogged down with the care of those who are able to care for themselves. We must also stay strong as a nation militarily. They must be funded.

Prayer Focus Point #3: Paul wanted others to know that the Gospel is free, and he would do that by his example. Pray that more Christians will adopt Paul’s way of doing things – caring for themselves and encouraging others to do the same through faith mixed with their works. This is how America became and will remain strong.
