No Prayer, No Power, Much Prayer, Much Power!
Intercessory Prayer Warriors 10-4-23
Some situations have come to my awareness that not only affects others, but they also affect me. With that being so, I am switching the message to “Intercessory Prayer Warriors”
Let’s start with what we, as children of the Most High God are called to do.
Is there one who will stand in the gap? Ezekiel stood in the gap so God would not destroy the land (Ezekiel 22:30). What about us standing in the gap on behalf of situations that are affecting others? The devil is afflicting people and trying to destroy them.
Anna, the prophetess prayed - Now there was one, Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity; and this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fasting and prayers night and day (Luke 2:36-37).
We are called to pray - 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. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior (1 Timothy 2:1-3).
We are to pray without ceasing - Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). This means to always have a prayerful attitude. Be ready to pray for someone at any given time. Example: You could be traveling, and the Lord puts someone in your spirit to intercede for.
Let’s pray for each other - everybody has something they need prayer for. Confess your faults to each other, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16). My brothers and my sisters, prayer is powerful!
I thank the Lord for my intercessory prayer partners; we have been praying diligently, interceding, and standing in the gap for approximately twenty-two years. To God be all praises, honor, and glory!
A song back in the day
Pray for me, pray for me, oh, my brother, pray for me
When you bow at the altar, please don't forget to pray
For me, for me, for me
Brothers and sisters (saints) of the Most High God our Father, we need God first and foremost, but we also need each other. Pray for me!
