We must understand that as a church our war is not with mouth, we secure answers by getting to the secret place of prayers. Interceding is seeking the face of God for a people or a nation, you are actually standing in gap in the figure of the person of Christ.
“Intercession is standing in the position of Jesus to pray for others, that’s why God respond to it faster”
We will do well to be an interceding church by taking our stand in that order of Christ that have that continual stand for priestly prayers.
Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
“Our life worth before God is in becoming an interceding church”
We must therefore awake to be praying for our nation and also for people. We must pray regularly for the people of God. There is an assumption that we have that some people are praying for the people of God instead of us to understand that we are actually numbered as a church to intercede for people or our nations but we stand in the shadows of assumptions and we embrace ourselves as a weak church. We must understand that the number of intercessors must be complete for the move of God. They may be few but they must be the people of God.
“The presence of war and lack of peace in a nation is because of lack of an interceding church”
- Praying the acceptable prayer in the sight of God for people
The concept of intercession is not for us but for the people and not necessarily for church folks, scriptures didn’t say the church but for all men
1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2:2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
We need to pray for all men, yet we know that some things will happen as we approach the last days, we also need to specifically pray for all men, for kings and those in authority. When a church arise to become a praying church we have entered into the season of God when what will do is acceptable in His sight. To go to war is not the thing to do in crisis but to enter into the secret place of prayers. As a matter of truth we ought to have engaged God ahead before the crisis come.
“When it comes to prayers, it’s a place where you find direction on what to do, how to do and when to do, these are never missing in prayers”
The church must arise to the call of intercession and then engage God so that we can have direction. There is more to the war see but God is a God that reveals secret and He shows great and mighty things that we do not know
Daniel 2:28 BUT THERE IS A GOD IN HEAVEN THAT REVEALETH SECRETS, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;
Psalms 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
