Lord, We Need Intercessors!

Lord, We Need Intercessors

Luke 10:19(KJV) - Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Mark 16:17-18 says the name of Jesus gives us authority! Hebrews 10:19 says the blood of Jesus gives us access! Hebrews 4:12 says The Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword! Acts 1:8 says The Holy Spirit gives us power! We're in the middle of a spiritual war and God has equipped us to win it so why aren't all of us fighting?

Today is Part One of our new series on Intercession. Let's go!

Ezekiel 22:30(KJV) - And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

There's nothing like standing in a place of intercession. God's heart is to do good in the lives of people but people aren't always willing or able to allow Him to do so. That's where we come in. By our prayer we can invite God into their situations. Sometimes, people are being oppressed by evil spirits right under our noses while God has called us to jump in and fight on their behalf. Sometimes, judgment is on it's way but God warns us ahead of time so that we would pray and stop it.

Lord, We Need Intercessors!

PRAY

Luke 18:1(KJV) - And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

If God puts someone on your heart, pray. If God shows you something in a dream, pray. If you find out that something is going down, pray. If you are a Christian, you carry the name of Jesus and have the same authority, so pray. Don't let things just happen around you without stepping out of your flesh and waging war in The Spirit. Fight for your family. Fight for your friends. Fight for your church. Fight for your company. Fight for your city. Fight for your country.

Ephesians 6:12-18(KJV) - For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Everyday, let's be prepared to take care of The Lord's business in the spirit realm. Put on the armor of God and start praying. There are things going on in the spirit around us that grieve the heart of God. There will be no change by arguments, emotional outbursts or pleading. The change comes when we defeat the spirits behind the situations. It's time to pray. It's time. Lord, we need intercessors!
