Intercessory Prayer

Intercessory prayer is focused prayer with a commitment to intercede before God UNTIL a response is received for Him.  This type of  prayer does not and cannot set deadlines for God to respond, neither is it about hollow repetitious prayer that even non-believers can recite.  This is a strictly believers' activity for the following reasons.

  1. Intercessory prayer is based on intimacy of relationship with God.

    This type of prayer tests and proves the genuineness of believers' relationship with God.  A person can fool everyone around that they are great Christians or leaders but if God will not hear or answer their prayers in reality then the truth about their relationship with God is confirmed.  This type of prayer provides God's own judgment on the relationship. Those who have a genuine relationship will ALWAYS get a response from God even if it is not what they want for an answer.  God is faithful to respond to genuine relationship and faith.

    Examples of true intimacy with God that brought results include:
    - Abraham interceding for Lot in Sodom
    - Moses interceding for Israel at Mount Sinai
    - Daniel when he fasted for 21 days
    - The Lord Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane
    - The disciples in Acts when they prayed for increased boldness in the face of persecution

     
  1. Intercessory prayer changes the intercessor as they seek God's face

True Intercessory prayer always changes the intercessor because the intercessor is seeking to find out what the Will of God is in relation to the item being interceded for.  True intercession does not dictate to God what the outcome must be. God already knows what the true outcome should be and what is required of the intercessor to get the Divine outcome.  This may require confession of sins and repentance for indulgent sinful activities.  It may require an increase in the study of the Scriptures and knowledge of promises regarding the items being prayed for. It may require perseverance, just like Daniel, until the answer arrives.

  1. Intercessory prayer must be in the Will of God

God is only obligated to fulfill what He has promised in the Scriptures and what is consistent with the Spirit of the Scriptures.  Intercessory prayer must therefore be fully aware that one cannot dictate to God through fasting or even quoting the Scripture promises. God is not a slave to so called "spiritual laws" or Bible promises.  He remains forever Sovereign and will do as He pleases.  Intercessory prayer is therefore about bringing "to remembrance" God's promises regarding the particular item.  God is looking for the genuineness of our faith in Him to answer the prayer and NOT His need to be reminded.

How to meet God's conditions for effective Intercessory Prayer

  1. Repentance 

    In 2 Chron. 12:7-14 it reads,

"12 Then the Lord qappeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: “I have heard your prayer, rand have chosen this splace for Myself as a house of sacrifice. 13 tWhen I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, 14 if My people who are ucalled by My name will vhumble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, wthen I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

In Joel 2:12-19 it reads,

"12     “Now, therefore,” says the Lord,  u“Turn to Me with all your heart,   With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”
13
 So vrend your heart, and not wyour garments; Return to the Lord your God, For He is xgracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness;  And He relents from doing harm.
14
     yWho knows if He will turn and relent,  And leave za blessing behind Him—  aA grain offering and a drink offering For the Lord your God?
15
     bBlow the 6trumpet in Zion, cConsecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly;
16
     Gather the people, dSanctify the congregation, Assemble the elders, Gather the children and nursing babes;  eLet the bridegroom go out from his chamber, And the bride from her dressing room.
17
     Let the priests, who minister to the Lord, Weep fbetween the porch and the altar;   Let them say, g“Spare Your people, O Lord, And do not give Your heritage to reproach, That the nations should 7rule over them. hWhy should they say among the peoples,

     ‘Where is their God?’ ”

The Land Refreshed

18     Then the Lord will ibe zealous for His land, And pity His people.
19     The Lord will answer and say to His people, “Behold, I will send you jgrain and new wine and oil,  And you will be satisfied by them;  I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.

In Isaiah 58:1-12 it reads,

 “Cry aloud, 1spare not;

     Lift up your voice like a trumpet;

     aTell My people their transgression,

     And the house of Jacob their sins.

2     Yet they seek Me daily,

     And delight to know My ways,

     As a nation that did righteousness,

     And did not forsake the ordinance of their God.

     They ask of Me the ordinances of justice;

     They take delight in approaching God.

3     ‘Why bhave we fasted,’ they say, ‘and You have not seen?

     Why have we cafflicted our souls, and You take no notice?’

     “In fact, in the day of your fast you find pleasure,

     And 2exploit all your laborers.

4     dIndeed you fast for strife and debate,

     And to strike with the fist of wickedness.

     You will not fast as you do this day,

     To make your voice heard on high.

5     Is eit a fast that I have chosen,

     fA day for a man to afflict his soul?

     Is it to bow down his head like a bulrush,

     And gto spread out sackcloth and ashes?

     Would you call this a fast,

     And an acceptable day to the Lord?

6     “Is this not the fast that I have chosen:

     To hloose the bonds of wickedness,

     iTo undo the 3heavy burdens,

     jTo let the oppressed go free,

     And that you break every yoke?

7     Is it not kto share your bread with the hungry,

     And that you bring to your house the poor who are 4cast out;

     lWhen you see the naked, that you cover him,

     And not hide yourself from myour own flesh?

8     nThen your light shall break forth like the morning,

     Your healing shall spring forth speedily,

     And your righteousness shall go before you;

     oThe glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

9     Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;

     You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’

     “If you take away the yoke from your midst,

     The 5pointing of the finger, and pspeaking wickedness,

10     If you extend your soul to the hungry

     And satisfy the afflicted soul,

     Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,

     And your 6darkness shall be as the noonday.

11     The Lord will guide you continually,

     And satisfy your soul in drought,

     And strengthen your bones;

     You shall be like a watered garden,

     And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

12     Those from among you

     qShall build the old waste places;

     You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;

     And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,

     The Restorer of 7Streets to Dwell In.

  1. Ask the help of The Holy Spirit.

    In Rom. 8:26-28 it reads,

"26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For jwe do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but kthe Spirit Himself makes intercession 7for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now lHe who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints maccording to the will of God.

  1. Focused Intercession on a few requests

The Lord Jesus warned against repetitious prayer that is totally rejected by God. In Matt. 6:5-8 it reads,

"5 “And when you pray, you shall not be like the 2hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6 But you, when you pray, cgo into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you 3openly. 7 And when you pray, ddo not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. eFor they think that they will be heard for their many words.

8 “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father fknows the things you have need of before you ask Him.

  1. Be armed with the spiritual armour

Eph 6:10 -18 reads,

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 lPut on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the 2wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against mprincipalities, against powers, against nthe rulers of 3the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 oTherefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand pin the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, qhaving girded your waist with truth, rhaving put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 sand having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking tthe shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And utake the helmet of salvation, and vthe sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 wpraying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, xbeing watchful to this end with all perseverance and ysupplication for all the saints

  1. Use the Word of God which is the Sword of the Spirit

 Eph 6:17 reads,
"the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;"

Heb. 4:11 - 13 reads,

11 gLet us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is hliving and powerful, and isharper than any jtwo-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is ka discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 lAnd there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are mnaked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

  1. Use the Gifts of The Holy Spirit to assist with discernment, wisdom on what and how to pray effectively

I Cor. 12:4-11 reads,

4 eThere are 4diversities of gifts, but fthe same Spirit. 5 gThere are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God hwho works 5all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: 8 for to one is given ithe word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another jthe word of knowledge through the same Spirit, 9 kto another faith by the same Spirit, to another lgifts of healings by 6the same Spirit, 10 mto another the working of miracles, to another nprophecy, to another odiscerning of spirits, to another pdifferent kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, qdistributing to each one individually ras He wills.
