The Need to Intercede

We need to do much less talking and much more praying. Unless there is much intercession, we won’t win the war in cities where there are murders nearly every day. We need to stop vacillating with double-mindedness. We need to have convictions about the value of prayer if we want to see young Christians make decisions based upon the conviction of God’s Word.

Do you realize that the Lord Jesus Christ in His unchanging priesthood “ever liveth to make intercession for us”? This makes our lives so meaningful. As servants, we can be helpers of people’s joy if we commit ourselves to prayer (2 Corinthians 1:24).

How many situations become complicated, difficult, exhausting, and wearisome because we do not use intercession as a weapon to deliver people from the bonds of the enemy? Knowing how to pray is the key. To intercede is to ask, making our requests known to God with fervency and intensity. Then, expect that God will answer, look for God to answer, and watch how God answers. Let us pray instead of rationalizing. Let us pray instead of evaluating.

Let us pray!
