主題:社會平安
方式:用經文禱讀,個人或小組禱告

12/2(星期一):彼此聆聽
經文:「那同他長大的少年人說:這民對王說:你父親使我們負重軛,求你使我們輕鬆些。王要對他們如此說:我的小拇指頭比我父親的腰還粗。我父親使你們負重軛,我必使你們負更重的軛!我父親用鞭子責打你們,我要用蠍子鞭責打你們!」(王上12:10-11)

說明:
羅波安王聆聽的對象不只有會眾,還有宮中的老少官員。那些少年官員同樣不知民間疾苦,其獻策是變本加厲。他們所關注的是王的權威,所想到的是給被統治者一個下馬威。

禱告重點:
1.雙方在彼此聆聽時,會有許多雜音,有好的也有不好的。採納哪種意見在於內心的心理質素,是虛懷若谷,抑或不得冒犯。請為香港官民之間在彼此聆聽時的心理質素代禱。
2.羅波安王身邊的少年人是他的同輩,同輩的影響力是一股無形的壓力。羅波安王聆聽的不只是以色列的會眾,還有他的同輩。同輩的影響力可能令他無法摸清會眾的意思,反而將焦點轉移到他的「自我」(ego)。請為掌權者及其同儕的心靈代禱。

12/2(Mon):Listen to each other
Scripture: “And the young men that were grown up with him spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou speak unto this people that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it lighter unto us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My little finger shall be thicker than my father’s loins. 12:11 And now whereas my father did lade you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke: my father hath chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.” (1 King 12:10-11)

Explanation:
Rehoboam listened not only to the assembly, but also the young and old officials in the palace. Those young officials were also unaware of the sufferings of the people, and their suggestions were made worse. What they were concerned about was the authority of the king, and the idea was to give the ruled a power.

Prayer Note:
1.When both sides listen to each other, there will be many noises, no matter good and bad. Which opinion is adopted depends on the psychological quality of the heart, whether it is open to opinion or subjective to offensive. Pray for the psychological quality of Hong Kong officials and citizens as they listen to each other.
2.The young people around King Rehoboam were his peers, and their influence was an invisible pressure. King Rehoboam listened not only to the assembly, but to his peers. The influence of his peers may make him unable to understand the meaning of the congregation, and instead focus on his “ego”. Pray for the hearts of those in power and their peers.
