Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

INTERCESSION PLEASES GOD


I Timothy 2:1,3-4

"I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth."


Dear Father, I cannot begin to fathom the mystery of intercession. You spoke a word and a universe was created. You will speak a second time and a new heaven and earth will be ushered in.

Nothing happens apart from Your decree. You are dependent upon no one and nothing. Yet the prayers of Your people matter to You.

Though nothing in all of creation is hidden from Your sight, You invite each of us to bring our concerns and requests to Your attention.

When we ask we receive. When we seek, we find. When we knock, You open doors. So, gracious Lord, hear our prayer today. Lord save, Lord heal, Lord reign. Bring Your kingdom and your righteousness to bear in our land and in our lives. Teach us to intercede for those who are lost, hurting, or needing guidance.

We love you,
Amen

My husband Don, will be having a pacemaker replacement on Friday. The one he has now is 8 years old, and the battery is running down. Please keep him in your prayers.

  1. Oh, Father,
    May You hand be upon Don and Wanda as his pacemaker is replaced. Give them Your peace and comfort this night and into the day tomorrow. May we remember to lift them up before Your throne during this time.
    Thank you, Lord, for Don and Wanda.
    Amen

  2. God, the protection of all that trust in you, grant, we beseech you, that your servant Don may be sustained and sanctified by your Holy Spirit and strengthened in soul and body, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    And I would ask this prayer also for my sister, who tomorrow is having major surgery to repair heart valves.
