Igniting The Prayer Lives of ALL People...
“For my house shall be called a house of prayer for ALL peoples Isaiah 56:7b
Arise and Committed:
Psalm 103:20 KJV
Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
All across this nation, across many channels of communication, the word of the Lord is going forth. As a result, the world is being challenged to arise, to get up out of the darkness of hopelessness or even the feeling of disdain and must decide immediately whether they will speak and walk in God’s Word or ignore it. As intercessors, one who stands in the gap of others, declare that many will arise with a true heart felt commitment to a lifestyle of walking and speaking the word of the Lord.
Time to Believe, not Plead:
Mark 9:22-24 KJV
22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do anything, have compassion on us, and help us.
23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
The man came to Jesus pleading for some help for his son. Jesus told him its not just up to me to believe, it’s whether you can believe. The man didn’t feel rejected or discouraged, rather he said, I believe, help my unbelief.
Today many people are pleading with God for help, when God is saying, it’s time for you to stop pleading with your head and start believing in your heart.
Whether you are interceding for others or praying for yourself, more believing and less pleading.

Don’t Get Discouraged:
Isaiah 41:10 KJV
10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
1965 Bible in Basic English
10 Have no fear, for I am with you; do not be looking about in trouble, for I am your God; I will give you strength, yes, I will be your helper; yes, my true right hand will be your support.
The world in which we are now living is constantly changing. Add to this, even in our own personal world things change; children leaving the comfort of home for college, marriage, or jobs. Changes due to divorce, our health, our finances, or even the death of a family member, relative, friend or someone in the community. These changes often time can cause one to feel abandoned or deserted, even by God. Today, as one who intercedes for others, pray not only for those in the world around you, but pray for yourself and those in your world, that all will not allow changing circumstances to give a spirit of abandonment, a foot hold, in their lives.
