CE Port Harcourt Zone 3: RULES FOR INTERCESSORY PRAYER:- 1. on KingsChat Web

RULES FOR INTERCESSORY PRAYER:- 1. You don’t intercede for yourself, because intercession is always for others. 2. You can continue to pray about the same thing over and over again until the change comes. In the prayer of intercession, your objective is to prevail on someone else to align with God’s will. You’re concentrating the influence of God’s power towards others for their good, and that requires some persistence in prayer. That means you must be willing to continue in prayer for as long as is required until you get that note of victory in your spirit and are certain that you have what you asked for, you don’t stop praying. INTERCESSION - A DIVINE RESPONSIBILITY. You have a personal ministry as a child of God to intercede for others. So many things can be changed if only you’d pray about them. There are three important points I want you to note about prayer, especially as it relates to intercessions: 1. Prayer is a privilege; it’s a great way of maintaining a relationship with the Lord. 2. Prayer is also a command and a divine responsibility given us by God. Paul expressed this in his letter to Timothy, “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men” (1 Timothy 2:1). 3. Prayer is a discipline. This is why you must pray even when you don’t feel like it. The prayer of intercession isn’t meant for unbelievers only, but also for fellow believers. This much Samuel communicated to the Israelites when he said, “Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:” (1 Samuel 12:23). John also admonishes us to do the same: “If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death...” (1 John 5:16). LABOURING IN PRAYER:- “Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God” (Colossians 4:12). Epaphras laboured fervently in prayer for the Colossian Christians. This is intercession, and it doesn’t suggest an easy prayer with casual expressions like, “Father, I pray for Johnny. Bless him and answer his prayers; give him whatever he wants from you." Paul, by the unction of the Spirit, talked about agonizing in prayer. It’s a struggle that’s similar to fighting, but not a fight with demons. It’s a fight against the dictates of your flesh. Hence, Paul lets us know there’s labour in this kind of prayer. It may not be enjoyable, but you discipline yourself to do it. Some people think they ought to pray only when they’re in the mood to pray, or when they feel the Holy Spirit is prompting them to do so. But the same persons go to work every day of the week even when they sometimes don’t feel like going. They’ve simply disciplined themselves to do what’s right as far as their job is concerned. This is what prayer—especially intercessory prayer—should be for the Christian. It’s your life’s work, and you must do it even when it’s not exciting. Since you’ve got a goal and want to prevail on circumstances to change, you must maintain discipline in prayer. At the beginning, it may not be very interesting, but you have to put all you’ve got into it. Stir up yourself and respond to God from your spirit. When you do this consistently, it’ll become a part of you. Culled from HOW TO PRAY EFFECTIVELY VOLUME ONE #HowToPrayEffectively #MonthofPrayer #cephzone3
