Philippians: 104 Intercession

“Always, in every prayer of mine for you all, making request with joy.” Philippians 1:4

Prayer reaches a power that all the forces of hell cannot dismay. In the closet of the christian victories can be won. The work of intercession- intervening in the plight of a sister or brother, sets aglow more than their soul. It sets aglow your own. 

The spirit that says, Give me souls, or I die, is a gift from God, it’s burden a blessing of the highest kind. 

Friends, let us pray for our fellow soldiers in the faith. 

And tell them that we do.

•   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   • 

When difficulties press and pound
The soldiers of the cross,
Let prayer to God for them abound, 
That there would be no loss.

When feet are sore, and hearts are tried
Around you on the road,
In earnest prayer press to their side,
To aid them with their load.

And when you intercede for those
Who labor under strain,
And of this fact to them disclose - 
It’s sunbeams in the rain!
