Mt Deliverance Worship Center sermon.
Intercession is a gift of the Spirit, but anyone can intercede. Abram interceded for Sodom and Gomorrah. Moses interceded for the children of Israel on multiple occasions. The church interceded for Peter in prison and he was set free.
God is seeking believers not bound by the cares of the world and secure in Christ. Intercessors are wall builders and build protection around others. They plead the causes of man with God.
Isaiah 62:7 – Watchmen have been placed on the walls. Intercessors are watchers. They arise in the night, they pour out prayers like water.
Intercessory prayer is warfare. You take the place of the offender and plead before God while standing against the enemy.
Intercession should be made for the government and leadership. When the righteous reign and rule, the people rejoice. Pray for nations and cities. If they prosper, the people within prosper. Pray for the gospel to spread.
Also pray for spiritual leaders and the workers, everyone within the body of Christ. Be the one found by God to be standing in the gap!
