Topic: THE HEART OF INTERCESSION Part 1
Text: Ezekiel 22:30-31 KJV
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.
31- Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God.
Intercession is a prayer that plead with God for the needs of others. The heart of intercession is a selfless heart that carries others in his/her mind in the place of prayer. It is not a heart that prays 100% for his or hers alone but prays for everyone.
Beloved, just as God seeks for true worshippers according John 4:23, He equally seeks for true intercessors according to Ezekiel 22:30.
One of the reason why we need to intercede is that God may not do want He wants to do if we refuse to intercede. For example, according to our text above, God is meant to destroy a city because of their sin yet He sought for a man who would stand in gap in prayer for the city, so that He (God) would not destroy it, but unfortunately, God found none and so he destroyed the city.
You will remember, that the salvation of Lots and his family from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was solely because Abraham pleaded with God for that city according to Genesis 18:17-30.
Jesus also affirmed it that if we do not pray, God may not do what He ought to do or what He wants to do. For example in Luke 10:2 Jesus said “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest”. Why would Jesus said the disciples should pray to God to send labourer when already they knew the salvation of the world is the heart beat of God.
Dearly beloved, in summary God seeks for true intercessors and if we do not intercede, God may not do what He ought or wants to do. Therefore I specially invite you to our annual PRAYER CONFERENCE tagged ‘ 7 HOURS WITH GOD ‘
