My Utmost For His Highest : "What To Pray For"

December 13, 2011

Men ought always to pray, and not to faint
Luke 18:1
You cannot intercede if you do not believe in the reality of the
Redemption; you will turn intercession into futile sympathy with
human beings which will only increase their submissive content to
being out of touch with God. In intercession you bring the person, or
the circumstance that impinges on you before God until you are moved
by His attitude towards that person or circumstance. Intercession
means filling up "that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ,"
and that is why there are so few intercessors. Intercession is put on
the line of - "Put yourself in his place." Never! Try to put yourself
in God's place.
As a worker, be careful to keep pace with the communications of
reality from God or you will be crushed. If you know too much, more
than God has engineered for you to know, you cannot pray, the
condition of the people is so crushing that you cannot get through to
Our work lies in coming into definite contact with God about
everything, and we shirk it by becoming active workers. We do the
things that can be tabulated but we will not intercede. Intercession
is the one thing that has no snares, because it keeps our
relationship with God completely open.
The thing to watch in intercession is that no soul is patched up, a
soul must get through into contact with the life of God. Think of the
number of souls God has brought about our path and we have dropped
them! When we pray on the ground of Redemption, God creates something
He can create in no other way than through intercessory prayer.
