Jesus is our Intercessor, one who triumphs through travail. His followers have an open invitation to join Him in this priestly ministry. Let the Holy Spirit ﬁll and guide you into prayer partnership with Christ.
Lord, I want to join You in Your ministry of intercession. You said in Your Word, ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.’ Lord I don’t want to miss out on the most important part of ministry. I know that prayer is where the power is released. You said, ‘I will bring them to My holy mountain, And make them joyful in My house of prayer,’ I’ve felt that joy a few times, but I need a deeper touch.
Jesus, I make a new commitment to have prayer as my top priority. I will put aside extra time for Your word, and worship and water the ground of my heart for intercession. I ask You to forgive me for grieving You. There have been times when I felt Your tug but I pushed You aside. Lord please forgive me. I long to partner with You in the prayer that changes things.
