INTERCESSORS

Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him since He always lives to make intercession for them.

Hebrews 7:25

Christ is making intercession for the world, the Bible calls him our Great advocate. 1 John.2.1 – My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. One way Christ is interceding for the world is through the church, we are his body, therefore if the head is concerned about saving the lost, the body needs to have the same sense of commitment. I believe in these times the Lord is causing a new stirring in the body towards reaching the lost, a burden shared with God in seeing his grand plan of all men saved coming to pass.

You have been saved to save Others! Someone Prayed for you to grow, it is only wise you do the same for others. First, pray for a fresh revelation of the saving Grace of Christ and see my utter helplessness. This will stir you in your commitment to seeing the lost saved. 

As believers, when interceding for these individuals, we are to pray in light of the Pauline prayer in Ephesians 1; that their eyes of understanding are enlightened…so that they can once again come into the love of God for them and discover their inheritance in Christ Jesus. That they come to the knowledge of their true selves as God’s treasured possession and as such they live in the light of who they are in Christ.

2 Cor.4:4 – whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. You must realise the Gospel is so attractive the devil has to cause the minds of people to be blind because he knows the moment they see it, they are going to desire it, that fellowship with God, that right standing.

It’s in the place of prayer; interceding for the lost, praying that this glorious gospel meets them, oh we are doing ourselves a great deal of good just engaging the ministry of ours, some of us have loved ones who are good people but yet unsaved, you are going to get up and pray for them even as you share the gospel with them.

Declaration: I am my Brother’s keeper; I spend time praying for the lost- saying ” Father, thank you for providing a way out for the lost, I ask that this Glorious Gospel shines on them!”
