I am very excited because we are turning down a new “lane” in prayer. My husband and I have prayed the prayer of agreement for years! It is a powerful prayer and it brings quick results for us! It is amazing to watch God put in order exactly what we have prayed about after praying the prayer of agreement! It is powerful and it works!
We are going to be getting more in depth through Kenneth Hagin, Sr. “Prayer Study Course”. You can order this book directly from RHEMA in Broken Arrow, OK. I am so glad I did! It is one of the best books I have ever read and I still refer back to it almost ten years after purchasing it.
Grab your coffee with me and let’s dig right in!
Let’s look at two other kinds of prayer in this chapter: the prayer of intercession and the prayer of agreement.
First we’ll look at the prayer of intercession. The word ‘intercede’ means to act between two parties with the thought of reconciling the two of them. Therefore, the prayer of intercession is standing in the gap in prayer on behalf of another. Normally, we intercede for the unsaved.
God said something to Israel through the prophet Isaiah which shows that God desires His people to intercede on behalf of others.
7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.
This verse implies that if someone had stirred himself up to pray and intercede and to call upon God, judgement on the nation of Israel could have been stayed or stopped! Let’s look at a similar statement by Ezekiel.
30 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.
Do you realize what these verses are saying? God looks for people of prayer to stand in the gap, to make up the hedge, and to intercede so that people’s lives can be spared.
Praise God for intercessors!! I am going to stop there for today, but tomorrow we will be talking about Intercessory Prayer and how it is even found in the Old Testament! Now, tongues are in the New Testament, but people prayed for others out of messes even in the Old Testament and delivered because of those prayers! You are going to love this, precious reader! What powerful prayer!
Have a wonderful and blessed day in the Lord, today! I will see you soon!! Oh, KIM COMES BACK TODAY…PRAISE THE LORD!! Juliana
