17.07.19 PRAYERS OF INTERCESSION, SET 2
RESPONSES TO INDIVIDUAL REQUESTS
PRAYERS OF INTERCESSION ARE VERY OFTEN DONE IN RESPONSE TO SPECIAL REQUESTS (either by friends, friends of friends, people listed on prayer chain) FOR HEALING, SAFETY, WORK/JOB, FINANCIAL, or RELATIONSHIP ISSUES. IT CAN BE MANY THINGS. IN SOME OF THESE INSTANCES WE REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT GOD’S PLAN, WILL, OR PURPOSE IS. WE NEED TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO ENTER INTO SOULISH PRAYERS (prayers which are only reflecting individual desires, whether our own or someone else’s; desires which may or may not have anything to do with God’s will, purpose or plans). SOMETIMES GOD MAY HAVE A REASON FOR THAT INDIVIDUAL’S CIRCUMSTANCE THAT WE ARE TOTALLY UNAWARE OF, NEITHER NECESSARILY ARE THEY. IN THESE SITUATIONS, WHERE WE DO NOT HAVE A SPECIFIC PASSAGE THAT VALIDATES THE INDIVIDUAL’S REQUEST/DESIRE, WE MUST EMPHASIZE THAT GOD’S WILL BE DONE. SOMETIMES IT IS NECESSARY/APPROPRIATE TO SIMPLY SURRENDER SUCH A REQUEST TO GOD’S WILL & PURPOSE FOR THAT INDIVIDUAL & THAT SITUATION/CIRCUMSTANCE.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
15 For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.”
44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,
3 He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”
