Prayer focus for MICHOP is set each week.  Prayer points come through the leading of the Spirit, as He indicates what to pray for our city, region, state and nation. You can be included in these weekly email prayers by contacting us and asking to be included in them. 

 

5 STEPS TO HEAL AMERICA


  1. Pray for change, in our own lives as well as in America.
  2. Repent and receive God’s viewpoint in all matters.
  3. Read Bible and understand how God intended us to live and to treat each other, to govern and to preserve freedoms.
  4. Turn from wickedness of all kinds. Turn from compromise, rationalization, and bad habits that keep us from thriving.
  5. Sacrifice time, energy and money to assist in making godly, righteous, compassionate changes in our communities together.


We receive suggested prayer points from  MICHOP Day Captains and other prayer team members who are praying in scheduled time periods, and we are also willing to consider prayer points submitted via email.  We welcome submissions from each of the 7 arenas of society:  our legislators and government workers and officials, educators, marketplace and business people, those in or connected to the military, those active in arts and media, requests concerning the Church, and concerns for our precious families


Check prayer focus below, or sign up on the contact page to receive a weekly email which contains this prayer focus! 


If you visit MICHOP, there are materials available to assist your prayers for the 7 "mountains," the nation of Israel, and our state elected officials.


WEEKLY PRAYER


FOCUS


Dear Fellow Intercessors of Michigan:


I Tim 2:1-2 – "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence."


1 John 4:18-21 - "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because He first loved us. If anyone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother."


Proverbs 1:7 - "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction."

Psalms 41-45: meditation psalms for this week.

Please feel free to write/email these senators who oversee the Commerce Committee. Suggestion: thank them for their service to us in MI, invite them to MICHOP any Wednesday for lunch, and remind them that we are praying for them so they will do their very best to make wise decisions for all of us.


Prayers for our state senators in the Commerce Committee: 

We thank You, Lord, for the men and women listed above, and how they have agreed to serve You and all MI citizens in the area of commerce. We thank You that they are willing to serve us and to oversee the business institutions and labor practices in our state. We have entrusted them with this responsibility, and we receive on their behalf the fear of the Lord and wisdom so they will be discerning and knowledgeable toward righteousness and peace in all matters of commerce. We ask You to protect them from bribes, unholy alliances, and manipulation from others. May they legislate righteously, and in alignment with Your Biblical standards. Thank You for Your Word that You have provided to us, that we would know how to rightly judge, govern and lead in the areas of commerce. We trust Your ways, and as the Psalmist says, "We delight in Your law, O Lord!" Praise You, God, for the opportunity to have commerce in this state and to exercise the freedom for "right to work" and to have enough healthy commerce to provide us with employment choices.
