Then Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is a divine spirit?” So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you are. You shall be over my house, and according to your command all my people shall do homage; only in the throne I will be greater than you. Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”  Genesis 41:38-41

Joseph, while being held in a dungeon, was called upon to interpret Pharaoh’s dream. That was the moment God turned upside down what the enemy meant for harm and gave Joseph favor and influence to bless the nation. Sometimes our thinking, our moving about in this world, and our prayer, could use more shrewdness and creativity. [Matthew 10:16].

Pray the listed items and as you are led by the Holy Spirit:

  • Pray for God to strategically place men and women into positions of influence around the world.
  • Pray for discernment, wisdom, prophecy, and words of knowledge for God’s men and women that bring favor with world leaders.
  • Pray for men and women all over the world to hear and listen to the Holy Spirit and be ready to be used influentially.
  • Pray against lies, deceptions and fear that block God’s men and women from boldly moving in the call of God.

Pray for us and yourself:

  • Pray for us to be more shrewd and strategic disciples—being attentive, listening, and willing to move on God’s call.
  • Acknowledge to God any weaknesses in this area and confess any sin that may be in your way.

Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; and confirm for us the work of our hands; yes, confirm the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17
