Examples Of Intercessory Prayer
#1 Be humble, but bold —
Abraham recognized he was “nothing but dust and ashes” but he has “been so bold as to speak to the Lord” (Genesis 18:27). His true humility doesn’t prevent him from boldly interceding on behalf of others in fact it promotes his purpose. When we pray through Jesus for others, we need to be humble and yet bold in asking for God’s mercy and blessing.
What many Christians fail to understand is that interceding is a great form of humbleness, it promotes that needs of others and defines that selflessness that is required for us to be like Jesus.
The hack: WWJD the acronym for What Would Jesus Do should rest heavily on our minds first thing in the morning; would He beg for Himself or petition on our behalf, which will you do?
And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes: Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.
Prince of Peace, Sar Shalom (Isaiah 9:6); we thank You for the direction of intercession which leads us to your presence. We praise You for allowing us to come before you boldly for the cause of others. We declare and decree blessings upon those who humble themselves and boldly come to the Throne of Grace, so that; by the work of intercession, we do this by faith continuously supporting the Will of God. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
