Day 9 Help to Intercession- What to Pray
For the Spirit of God to be in and on all Mission workers. “So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off. The two of them sent on their way by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia, and sailed from there to Cyprus” (Acts 13 vs 3 & 4)
The evangelization of the world depends first of all upon a revival of prayer. Deeper than the need for men & women —– deep down at the bottom of our spiritless life, —– is the need for the forgotten secret of prevailing, worldwide prayer. Pray that our mission work may all be done in this spirit; waiting on God, hearing the voice of The Holy Spirit, send forth men and women with fasting and prayer. A Spirit-filled, praying church, will send out Spirit-filled missionaries, mighty in prayer! How to Pray; Take Time. And will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the Word.
(Acts 6 v 4) “Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart, to utter anything before God, God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few! (Ecclesiastes 5 v 2) And spent the night praying to God (Luke 6 v 12b) Time is one of the prime estimates of value. The time we give is proof of the interest we feel. We need time with God to realise His presence, to wait for Him, to make Himself known, to consider and feel the needs we pray for, to take our place in Jesus Christ, to pray until we believe we have received. Take time in prayer, and pray for the blessing on the mission work of the church. ( Pray for your own needs, in the same manner, take time……)
