“And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. ”
The understanding of each believer of who the scriptures has said he is and embracing the responsibilities turns him to a wonder in life Psa. 119:144. The lack of a sound understanding of this is the reason for the frustrating life of many in the kingdom. The scriptures show clearly that the believer is God’s building, where the Spirit of God dwells 1Cor. 3:9; 1Pet. 2:9. The house of God is ordained to be a house of prayer; hence prayer is to become the lifestyle of a believer Mk. 11:17. And kingdom advancement must be the focus of a prayer life that will always deliver result Mat. 6:9-10.
Examples of Saints in the Bible who though not ordained are intercessors.
Job was a businessman that was into animal rearing, he rose to become the greatest of his days Job 1:1-3. Despite being the richest businessman, he was renown as a servant of God, because he was given to the lifestyle of prayer, praying for the wellbeing of others Job 1:8; 42:10.
What Are we to Pray for?
God instruction to the believer is that our new converts must abide in the faith by getting them established in the church Jn. 15:16. Essential to this is the need to keep praying for them Gal. 4:19; Col. 4:12. When we engage in this prayer, we shut the door against the manipulation of the devil targeted at drawing them back from the faith into the world Lk. 1:24-26.
Jesus is Lord!
Father, in the name of Jesus, baptize me with the Spirit of grace and supplication afresh Zch. 12:10.
Pray for all your new converts and invitees to church this year, for their establishment.
None of your converts this year that shall be lost in Jesus name!
Every manipulation of the devil on any of our convert is rendered null and void now!
