Intercessory Prayer in the Spirit for Others

The principle of persevering prayer applies to every area of the Christian’s life, including our efforts to lead others to Christ.
It should be clear from the previous discussion that our prayers are necessary for the salvation of those in our circle of family and friends. Paul exhorts the Christian to make “intercession” for all men in (1 Tim. 2:1-3)

We are to bring about meeting with God though intercessory prayer. Our prayers for the lost bring about meetings of
reconciliation between them and God and dissolution between them and Satan. And all Christians are called to participate in. we see this in (2 Cor. 5:18, 19).

Although God dwells not in temples made with hands, yet He honors with His presence the assemblies of His people. As Christians are daily feed with the Spirit, God will lead in their coming tighter to pray for in each person’s life. Satan wants you to think that prayer in not necessary, but Jesus showed us that we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit daily.

Supporting Scripture; (John 17:20, 21), (Heb. 7:25), (Ehp. 6:18), (1 Sam 12:23)

Personal Reflection and Discussion

    I have so many people that I pray for daily. There are so many I want to know Jesus so intercessory prayer is prayer that is so needed for all of us. Satan does work hard to keep me from my intercessory prayers. Well he works hard at trying to keep me from all my prayers, but I really notice it for the intercessory prayers. Happy Sabbath, Bobby, Amalia, Joseph, Jacquie and any others enjoying these studies.

    I’ve noticed intercessory prayer really work…almost immedietly. I wonder how many people had prayed for me. Sometimes we won’t know till we get to heaven and the books are opened up. It would be almost neater to see how many stories intermingle with each other through the power of intercessory prayers.

    Happy Sabbath to you all!

    Joseph- you leave some of us wondering what that answer to prayer was. You know, God wants us to be united like a family…so hope to hear about it at Potluck. : )
