THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...
DATE: TUESDAY 11TH JUNE, 2016
TEXT: Ezekiel 33
THEME: INTERCESSION IS VERY IMPORTANT
MEMORY VERSE: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land.... " (Ezekiel 22:30-31).
MESSAGE: 'What is intercession? It is to stand in the gap for someone or other people. It is a mark of selflessness whereby one considers the interests or plights of others to make intercessory prayers for them. When a man commits sin, the judgment is that of death and hell fire- However, whosoever is in a position to pray for him - to stand in the gap for him to change but never cares. Rather, he concentrates on praying for himself, business and family alone. God will require the blood of that sinful person from such a selfish believer.
That is why it is important that you pray for others and not just yourself, family and business alone. If they continue in sin because you refuse to pray, God will surely pour out His indignation upon them; but you will not receive a warm handshake for that negligence. Have you been praying for others too? If your answer is no, you must have a rethink today and begin to intercede for others.
Sing a few praise/worship songs. Make a thanksgiving prayer and ask God for mercies and the forgiveness of sins. Thereafter, take the following prayer points.
1. Any spirit of self operating in my life, come out and enter no more, in Jesus' name.
2. O God I pray: give me the power of intercession, in Jesus' name. Today, I stand in the gap for my family. the church. my country, all the backsliders, those being persecuted, the poor, the sick and the oppressed. Let God intervene and fight for them and settle the, in Jesus' name.
3. Any ancestral, witchcraft or marine spirit power opposing the prayer of my G. O for my life, let the power receive Holy sledge hammer, in Jesus' name
