When husband and wife intercede on behalf of others it create in a home an atmosphere of the praying priest, and when their children notice this, the seed is sown in them already”
When husband and wife learn to pray for others it is such a blessed thing they get involved in, when they hold hands praying for the good of others, spending time with God’s Word to pray for men, changing the lives of people together by praying for others. When this happen in the home it will help them unite in the place of prayers together, they will come into the union of agreement in the place of prayers for others and this will help them on other aspect of prayers as well.
- How to become an interceding couple
This is by giving our attention to prayers making mention of others in the place of prayers. I love to say to become couples that labour together for others in the place of prayers. I love the way Epaphras laboured for others
Colossians 4:12 Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always LABOURING FERVENTLY FOR YOU IN PRAYERS, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.
We may not gain much when we pray for others in the place of prayers if we don’t labour for them. There is so much labouring for others can do by engaging the Lord in prayers for others and looking up together to the Lord as husband and wife. Our prayer must go up to God and be quickened from our hearts as we commit to the Lord the need of others and also watch God turn things around by faith for others.
When it comes to praying for others we may be moved by the Spirit of God to pray for people on a particular need or some people may come to mind and then we begin to pray for them by the help of the Spirit of God as we commit our hearts together in unity to see what we are praying for them come to pass, understanding that when we agree as couple and understanding the power of two in prayers that our request for them will be granted
Matthew 18:19 Again I say unto you, THAT IF TWO OF YOU SHALL AGREE ON EARTH AS TOUCHING ANY THING THAT THEY SHALL ASK, IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM of my Father which is in heaven.
When we come with this assurance of God’s word to pray for others, our prayers will be answered by the Lord. The truth is as we seek the Lord in prayers for others we also enlarge our own capacity in the place of prayers and also enhance our relationship with the Lord, knowing that this is well pleasing in the sight of the Lord.
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 will do well as couples when our homes become a home that intercede for others and by our prayers turn the people to God and see their lives change for good. You can read, COUPLES: UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF TWO and PRAYING IN TONGUES TOGETHER
