#99 Maintaining your Intercessors

C. Peter Wagner tells us, "The apostle 
Paul valued personal intercession highly.

He requested it in several of his epistles, 
but none in more detail than the epistle
to the Ephesians.

The church  at Ephesus was born out 
of some of the most intense spiritual
warfare of Paul's entire career.

In Ephesus, Paul had dealt with spiritual
forces of darkness on every level; from evil spirits being 
cast out through handkerchiefs that were taken from him, to 
dealing with the seven sons of Sceva, to burning magical 
paraphernalia, to Diana of the Ephesians who was known as 
the territorial spirit over the whole region. 

This is why Paul deals so much with topics such as spiritual 
warfare and the armor of God in his epistle.

Clinton E. Arnold observes that Ephesians contains 'substantially higher concentration of power terminology that any other epistle attributed to Paul.'

A weapon of spiritual warfare to which Paul gives a high profile is prayer. He says 'Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit' Eph. 6:18.

Powerful prayer is necessary for intense spiritual warfare."

Let’s pray:

   Father, remind us of the 
importance of our praying 
for our leaders.

   They have battles that we 
aren't aware of, so may we 
be diligent to pray for them.

   May we keep a high profile of prayer for those in leadership in our church, town, state, and country.

   You have directed us to honor our leaders, and as You expect us to maintain good attitudes, may we be careful to pray for them!

   In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen

Today’s Bible verse:  Rom. 5:5 "And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."

Today’s quote: Brother Lawrence – “There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God.”

Some thoughts today: Rebellion is putting the devil's thoughts ahead of God's.

- Inspiration without motivation is simply entertaining. Don't think it to death! Simply trust God, and obey Him.

- The seed of faith of the first men who formed our constitution, was faith in God. It is faith in Him that has made us a great nation! Nothing less will help us regain His favor...

A popular post: She-Bear Meetings  Dutch Sheets 
tells us, “Let’s progress in our thinking to the breaking 
aspect of intercession meetings—enforcing the victory 
of Calvary. I call this ‘the bear anointing’ because of 
Proverbs 17:12: "Let a man meet a bear robbed of 
her cubs, rather than a fool in his folly."…
