PRAYER GUIDE 1 KINGS 11 STUDY, 04.07.19
Oh, Father, I pray that by Your Holy Spirit people would make new meanings for their lives, in their walk with You. I ask for revelations that will convict, bringing to Light those issues in each life that are brought forth through these passages, combined with the prompting of Study Guide questions, to bring reconciliation, forgiveness, repentance, & healing wherever needed.
In highlighting the ways that You warn each of us to not give in to the temptations around us, to not partake of the fruits of Jezebel’s table (Rev.2:20-23), to not be unequally yoked (2 Cor.6), to not worship foreign gods/idols, and to not be influenced & seduced & deceived by the things of this world, as Jesus/Yeshua, You said: “you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. ….” (John 15:19), I pray that You would use this STUDY to alert each individual to attend to any such warnings You have given.
Convict Your leaders who, in so many churches today, are endorsing, if not promoting various forms of idolatry, as the fruits of Jezebel’s table are being served up in many forms (yoga, promoting other New Age teachings, & carnal activities; honouring writings/books by authors that distort Your very Word; promoting events, idol worship in various forms & ways). Oh, Father, have mercy, & bring these ones in line with Your Word.
Send Your Holy Spirit to anoint and appoint leaders who will take down the high places (I Kings 11:5-8) within Christian circles. We have those who are condoning, agreeing with such practices as abortion & euthanasia, rationalizing and justifying in accordance with their own desires, & deceived by social influences of political correctness. Open their eyes, Lord.
Put Your holy fire against these false gods, idols, & alters for “Is not Your word like a fire? . . And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?” (Jer.23:29), and “Therefore thus says the Lord God of hosts: when we speak Your Words into a situation, You will release Your FIRE POWER into that situation & devour the Enemy’s plans, like a fire burning up wood” (Jer.5:14, re-phrased to apply to personal life in today’s world situations).
Bring each individual believer to a place of seeking You, attending to Your warnings, Your leadings, and acting on & being obedient to whatever You are showing/revealing/instructing, that dire consequences can be prevented, and instead freedom & victory realized. In Jesus/Yeshua’s Name. Amen.
