You are worthy O Lord, that Lamb of Calvary to receive glory and adoration. You are Worthy O! Lord, that lamb of Calvary to receive glory now and forever more. // Glory, glory Lord we give you glory, glory glory Lord You are the Mighty God. 2x
Heavenly Father, we thank You, may Your Name be blessed forever more. Thank You for this beautiful morning You made us to be part, glory be to Your Name forever. O Lord, we are at Your presence today to be blessed. May it please You Lord to look down with pity and honour us today as we pray.
Beloved, how are we doing today? Are you ready to pray today. Griddle your loins and pray until something happens. In the Spirit of love we are going to pray for ourselves and also pray for our beloved ones. Yes, that is clarion call today, to pray and to pray for those in need of our prayers.
Beloved, have you taken time to ask yourself who are those in need of your prayers aside yourself and your mediate family? These categories of people are yearning for your prayers daily and today’s ministration is coming your way commemorate the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ while He was here on earth and also the injunction He left behind.
So as we are encouraged you to intercede on behalf of others before your Father in heaven, we encourage you to do so because that is what is pleasing to your Father in heaven.
“Praying always.” Ephesians 6:18
What multitudes of prayers we have put up from the first moment when we learned to pray. Our first prayer was a prayer for ourselves; we asked that God would have mercy upon us, and blot out our sin. He heard us. But when He had blotted out our sins like a cloud, then we had more prayers for ourselves.
We have had to pray for sanctifying grace, for constraining and restraining grace; we have been led to crave for a fresh assurance of faith, for the comfortable application of the promise, for deliverance in the hour of temptation, for help in the time of duty, and for succour in the day of trial. We have been compelled to go to God for our souls, as constant beggars asking for everything. Bear witness, children of God, you have never been able to get anything for your souls elsewhere.
All the bread your soul has eaten has come down from heaven, and all the water of which it has drank has flowed from the living rock—Christ Jesus the Lord. Your soul has never grown rich in itself; it has always been a pensioner upon the daily bounty of God; and hence your prayers have ascended to heaven for a range of spiritual mercies all but infinite.
Your wants were innumerable, and therefore the supplies have been infinitely great, and your prayers have been as varied as the mercies have been countless. Then have you not cause to say, “I love the Lord, because He hath heard the voice of my supplication”? For as your prayers have been many, so also have been God’s answers to them.
He has heard you in the day of trouble, has strengthened you, and helped you, even when you dishonoured Him by trembling and doubting at the mercy-seat. Remember this, and let it fill your heart with gratitude to God, who has thus graciously heard your poor weak prayers. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.”
Yes! Forget not all His benefits. Beloved pray for others, pray for one another:
“Pray one for another.” James 5:16
As an encouragement cheerfully to offer intercessory prayer, remember that such prayer is the sweetest God ever hears, for the prayer of Christ is of this character. In all the incense which our Great High Priest now puts into the golden censer, there is not a single grain for Himself.
His intercession must be the most acceptable of all supplications—and the more like our prayer is to Christ’s, the sweeter it will be; thus while petitions for ourselves will be accepted, our pleadings for others, having in them more of the fruits of the Spirit, more love, more faith, more brotherly kindness, will be, through the precious merits of Jesus, the sweetest oblation that we can offer to God, the very fat of our sacrifice.
Remember, again, that intercessory prayer is exceedingly prevalent. What wonders it has wrought! The Word of God teems with its marvellous deeds. Believer, thou hast a mighty engine in thy hand, use it well, use it constantly, use it with faith, and thou shalt surely be a benefactor to thy brethren. When thou hast the King’s ear, speak to Him for the suffering members of His body.
When thou art favoured to draw very near to His throne, and the King saith to thee, “Ask, and I will give thee what thou wilt,” let thy petitions be, not for thyself alone, but for the many who need His aid. If thou hast grace at all, and art not an intercessor, that grace must be small as a grain of mustard seed. Thou hast just enough grace to float thy soul clear from the quicksand, but thou hast no deep floods of grace, or else thou wouldst carry in thy joyous bark a weighty cargo of the wants of others, and thou wouldst bring back from thy Lord, for them, rich blessings which but for thee they might not have obtained:—
“Oh, let my hands forget their skill,
My tongue be silent, cold, and still,
This bounding heart forget to beat,
If I forget the mercy-seat!”
Beloved, let love move us to pray for others even as we pray for ourselves.
God will hear your from above and bless you. Intercessory prayers are one of the heartbeat of Christ, do not neglect to be part of it as tremendous blessings accompanies it.
May God answer you as you pray today in Jesus Name. And send help from His sanctuary and answer all your prayers.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
