I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for [the sake of] the land, that I would not destroy it, but I found no one [not even one]. – Ezekiel 22:30
How wonderful this is! He cannot do the work Himself because He is pure Spirit; and He will not avail Himself of the instrumentality of His holy angels. Nay, but He seeks for men who will be prepared to stand in the gap. Never was the need greater than to-day for such men, to resist the pleasure mania, the Sunday desecration, the licence and lax morality of our age. The masses are pouring through the gap like a flock of sheep. Will you not heed God’s appeal, and offer yourself for this great and crying need? – James Nisbet
I pray that you and I would evaluate what it is we are pursuing most in our life. I pray that we would identify the “lesser things” that tend to draw our attention away from the “greater things”. I pray that nothing would ever be more important to us than not only living in the presence of God, but in having His presence living in us through His Spirit. Tom
Today I will confess and repent, seek and receive His forgiveness, then surrender to the Holy Spirit as He leads me to a more-righteous walk before the Lord.
An intercessor is one who relentlessly reminds the Lord of His prophetic promises while identifying the needs for justice in our generation. We do spiritual warfare against the powers of darkness in the mighty name of Jesus while lifting a cry for mercy upon our spheres of delegated rule for Christ’s name sake.
If we call upon the Lord He has promised in His Word to answer, to bring the unsaved to Himself, to pour out His Spirit among us. If we don’t call upon the Lord, He has promised nothing – nothing at all. It’s as simple as that. No matter what … we claim to believe in our heads, the future will depend upon our times of prayer. This is the engine that will drive the church. (Jim Cymbala)
The Lord is seeking for a prayer warrior to stand in the gap and pray compassionately for His people.The Lord’s eyes are running throughout the earth to seek prayer warriors who will be able to stand in the gap for His people in every country.As only one spark’s needed to set a forest on fire, similarly one prayer warrior is enough to set a country on spiritual fire. God’s eyes are looking for such a prayer warrior.
The child of God, the very weakest, who would in their quiet time offer up prayer, that shall be pleasing to the Father, and be a blessing to others lives as well as their own, must remember that they have received the Holy Spirit as the spirit of prayer, and that His help is indispensable to enable us to pray effectually.
