IMG_6898God wants to use you to bring heaven to earth on behalf of someone else. We have help from the Helper—the Holy Spirit. What a comfort for our prayer life we find in Romans 8:26-27. Many times, especially when we are burdened with someone’s need, we aren’t exactly sure how to pray. But the Holy Spirit comes to our aid. He may give a scripture to meditate on, or reveal with a dream, sign, or in any way He sees fit. 

With our limited knowledge we may not have any idea how or what to pray for a situation; but God’s Holy Spirit steps in and prays for us and through us—always in harmony with God’s perfect will. He knows exactly how to get our attention….and when our ears are tuned in to hear His Voice, we will know what is on the Father’s heart. This is the way Jesus lived here on earth. 

If you are called to be an intercessor, you will be one who identifies with others. You won’t snub your nose in the air, think negative thoughts within, or blast people out for prideful reasons. You won’t automatically assign motive or heart intent and criticize. You have a heart that is tender to people. 

Intercessory prayer moves one to cry out from the innermost depths of the heart with tears for someone else. The apostle Paul says, “the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express” (Romans 8:26 NIV). Jesus identifies with us and reached the deepest agony at Gethsemane. Jesus prayed with “loud cries and tears” as written by the author of Hebrews (5:7 NIV). 

Jesus was numbered with His transgressors and identified with all people through experiencing everything we would ever experience here on earth. Jesus epitomized lasting love. He identifies with us in every situation and on every point. 

When we are moved by identifying with others, praying with deep cries from our heart and tears, and stand in our God-given authority, we move the heart of God. Our intercessory prayers move God and causes Him to change His mind. 

Pray and then get up and go out to be a great encourager, not a critic. Pray for our leaders. Pray for your pastor. Pray for their strength, their family, and ministry. Get rid of evil obstacles such as envy, greed, lust, malice, prejudice, and lies—all of which Satan uses to destroy the power of our prayers. Realize that if it had not been for the Lord, well, need I say more. 

Amazing victory is ours when we pray. The world in which we live needs love. God uses ordinary people to be vessels of hope and encouragement, and to move mountains through prayer. Listen for and obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit. 

Divine influence in personal lives and world events are not brought about by achievement, manipulation, prestige, control, or power, but upon humble and utter dependence upon Jesus Christ Himself. The Spirit of God will awaken you to a whole new level of extraordinary prayer as you obey His promptings and pray until you sense release. 

I remember many years ago hearing the phone ring in our home only two times before I could get to it at 3 AM in the morning.  I saw the name that appeared on the caller I.D. and knew it was one of the staff at our home church, but was not a number I recognized. I got up to pray, sensing in my heart and spirit that it was God moving me to prayer for the person with that name. 

The next morning, I called the church to inquire from this couple and learned that at the same time the Holy Spirit used the telephone ringing in our home to get my attention, the husband’s father (with the same name) was being taken by ambulance to the hospital with heart attack symptoms. She shared the story and told me he was going to live…that he had made it through. You can see how God gets our attention in natural ways. The Holy Spirit unveils Heaven’s agenda to us when we are open, aware, and expecting God to speak to us at all times. We live with eternity in mind and are increasingly aware of His Holy Presence. We don’t have to understand all the details…but simply obey the leading of the Holy Spirit. 

You never know what someone else is walking through. Don’t ignore the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Stop and pray….your prayers dispatch Heaven’s angels from the throne room of God to bring answer to prayers. (Psalm 103:20). 

People are in despair and wondering what on earth is going on in the world in which we live. I heard a mother’s message yesterday at her own son’s funeral. He had taken his own life. He left behind heartbreak, confusion, and distress. Suicide is a permanent choice to a temporary situation. Life is a precious gift from God. Talk to people and take time to listen with your heart. Encourage people…life is short..eternity is forever. 

“The Father who knows all hearts” (Romans 8:27) can use us to make a difference in the lives of those we pray for—even when we don’t know “how” we ought to pray. 

Prayer is a gift from God! We are able to partner with the Holy Spirit, cooperate with Him, and see the Kingdom of heaven released here on earth! The sweet Presence of God within us brings hope and reformation to the world around us—encountering a loving Heavenly Father.

"...As a result of obedience in the midst of her desert experiences, I believe God has filled Deborah with wisdom that we would all do well to take to heart. Do you ever ask yourself why you seem to end up in the same situation over and over again? Why you fear the future, or are frustrated with relationships?...."
