Intercessory Prayer

” In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express  (Roman8:26)!

Paul tells us that even when we don’t know what we ought to pray for The Spirit Himself interceded for us with groaning that our words cannot express!  How wonderful!

I don’t know what your burdens are right now but the Holy Spirit knows!  He can breath The Words through me!  In Healing Words by Larry Dossey he found that heart patients did better that were hedge and lifted to the Holy Spirit did better.  Even plants that were prayed for did better!

Oswald Chambers in his daily devotional book,  My Utmost For His Highest calls intercessory prayer ministry  of the interior.  It is a hidden ministry.

We are to pray Right Now for the people we are in contact with … the clerk at CVS, the AT&T lady who I just talked to on the phone to try and change my wireless services!  How much more urgent is our need to pray for our fellow strugglers dealing with chronic illness and pain?

Intercessory prayer brings us to discernment, not judgement!  We can engage in intercessory prayer whether in bed, the hospital, or at church.  How impoverished will that person be if we don’t pray for them Right Now, in the Moment?

When I tell someone I am praying for them I really mean I am hedging and lifting them to the Holy Spirit as He seems fit to redeem ALL things in HIS perfect wisdom, grace, and timing.  There is no snare in Intercessory Prayer!

Father God, I hedge and lift those to you who are in need and hurting at this very moment for what ever reason or cause!

How often to you pray for those in need that you come into contact with over the Internet, by phone or in person?
