Little Book, Big Prayers: Intercession for the Body of Christ


To follow is the Introduction to the fourth Little Book, Big Prayers 4-book series scheduled for release October 27th.

And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.–Ezekiel 22:30

Each of us are called to intercession. It is not just a corporate function for the body of believers in Jesus Christ, but it is an individual function as well. Every child of God has several charges. One of them is to reconcile the lost to Jesus Christ through sharing the Good News of the Gospel and sharing our testimonies.

And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. –2 Corinthians 5:18-19

Another charge is to do the work of the Gospel:

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils:
freely ye have received, freely give.
–Matthew 10:8

Praying for our personal needs in behalf of ourselves is not intercession. But intercession is creating a link between God and mankind in behalf of others and the cares of this world.

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; –1Timothy 2:1-3

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. –James 5:16

Situations in the world and the lives of God’s people are changed through intercession. It is not just a ministry but should be the lifestyle of every believer. When we don’t make intercession a part of our prayer life, it is like a critical loss of blood to the body. The church is weakened and susceptible to attacks by the devil, like aiding and abetting the death of the church of Jesus Christ. Intercession is vital to the life and strength of the body of Christ. The power of God is demonstrated through His sons and daughters when we declare and decree the word of God. The prophetic is released through intercession.

God obligates himself to hear the voice of intercession. When you pray from your heart, He will allow you to know what His heart and mind is for the world and His people. Through intercession His will and desires are birthed out or manifested into the earth realm. God takes care of our personal concerns when we avail ourselves to cover one another in prayer. There will always be a need for you to stand in the gap, make up the hedge, repair the broken places, and to pray the kingdom alternatives of God on earth as it is in heaven.

All of the prayers in this book are scripture-based. Use them as a springboard to help you develop or enhance your personal and private communion with the Father, or ability to participate in corporate intercession. Don’t use them half-heartedly or make them a formality or ritual. The prayers are only a tool to help you learn some of what the word of God has to say about each topical item. The topical listing is a reminder of the significant areas we need to keep on our prayer lists. And remember, intercession is not just talking to God and going about your business, but it is waiting and listening to Him as well.

The cry of the poor come unto him and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.–Job 34:28

Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen: –Joel 2:19

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; –Luke 18:1

We have an assignment individually and corporately to pray for the manifestation of the glory of God to come upon the Body of Christ. That is only if we intercede on one accord, unified in the spirit. We will see our sons, daughters, and households saved and strengthened. We will see signs and wonders in the heavens and on earth. We will see the harvest of souls through evangelism and revivals. We will see the divine favor and glory of God, restoration and miracles, a holy reverence and purity in the church.

Intercession is needed for the Body of Christ until each of us, when we read: “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” (Rev. 22:12-13), then we will be able to rejoice and say without fear or hesitation, “Even so, come Lord Jesus.” (Revelations 22:20).

Little Book, Big Prayers: Career and Finances


To follow is an excerpt of the Introduction to the third “Little Book, Big Prayers” 4-book series scheduled for release October 27th.

There are many devices in a man’s heart;
nevertheless the counsel of the LORD,
that shall stand.
–Proverbs 19:21

And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him,
the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of counsel and might,
the spirit of knowledge and of
the fear of the LORD;
–Isaiah 11:2

God is concerned about your soul and your spirit. Did you know that He is concerned about your career and your finances as well? They are the source of your seed. Your seed is what you do with your time, how you utilize your talents, how you serve others, and what you do with your money or other valuable resources. There are challenges, trials, and tribulations that confront us everyday. But God has addressed each and everyone of them in His word. He does not intend for you to struggle continuously.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper
and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
–3John 1:2

God has a purpose and a plan for your life. That includes what you do with your life and the resources that are necessary to sustain you. Praying to receive your portion of the covenant blessings of God is available to everyone of His sons and daughters. Through the enabling assistance of the Holy Spirit, He teaches you how to be successful and shift out of the desolate places you may be in right now.

If you are in a place that lacks prayer or communion between you and God, then you are living without direction. Is the expectation of good things absent from your life? Is your everyday mundane or exasperating? Is a hopeless present and future all you see? Well, when you choose to cooperate with the plan of God by declaring the word of God over your life, over your career, over your finances, then you won’t have time to focus on past failures, current struggles, or a hopeless future.

Prayer helps you change your thinking and your value system. Your value system is what you believe about yourself and others, and what you believe about God. Prayer gives you access to kingdom blessings so you can think/believe, act and speak differently. Wouldn’t you prefer to associate with people who are walking in their God-given purpose and destiny? You too can walk in what has been established for your life–the plan and purpose of God. And it is possible for you to become a person who can encourage, inspire, motivate, and mentor others.

Keep therefore the words of this covenant,
and do them, 
that ye may prosper
in all that ye do.
–Deuteronomy 29:9

Only be thou strong and very courageous,
that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law,
which Moses my servant commanded thee:
turn not from it to the right hand or to the left,
that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
–Joshua 1:7

Your words, thoughts/beliefs and actions dictate to your future. The scriptures say:

“You will eat the fruit of your lips.” — Your words.
“So as a man man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” — Your thoughts/beliefs
“You shall reap what you sow.” — Your actions.

This book will help you exercise your faith to experience the transforming power of God over your circumstances. Declare the scripture-based affirmations that God is the Lord, He is your source, and you choose His will for your life. Gain more faith in His promises of protection, provision, healing and deliverance. Through prayer you have power to change what you think, say and do in any circumstance. God wants you to experience spiritual growth and make better decisions about your career, your finances and your life.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
–Psalm 1:3

Little Book, Big Prayers: Mental & Physical Wholeness


To follow is an excerpt of the Introduction to the second “Little Book, Big Prayers” 4-book series scheduled for release October 27th.

But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.–Malachi 4:2

Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.–Jeremiah 17:14

God wants you well and whole. When you are suffering emotionally, mentally and physically, it is difficult to live a fruitful life. One of the names of God is Jehovah-Raphe, the Lord our Healer. He wants you to know and believe that He is loving, present, compassionate and powerful. His power is available and is given to us through the Holy Spirit. You must be willing to receive His virtues like, love, grace, and strength. And you must be willing to use the word of God as access to all of His other virtues.

Each of us have daily needs. God has already instructed us to ask and believe to receive. Your faith in Him and His scriptures moves God. He wants to meet your needs but you must learn and know how to trust Him. He wants you to be His son or daughter, meaning you accept Jesus Christ as your personal saviour and are filled with His Holy Spirit. Once you do so, you are counted as one of His children.

When the children of Israel were in the wilderness, God gave them a promise of protection, provision, healing, deliverance and well-being. The requirements to receive these blessings was to reverence and honor Him, love Him with all their heart, mind and strength, obey His law, walk in His ways and serve Him with joy and gladness. Those promises with those stipulations are still in effect for those of us who claim our membership to the household of faith.

But now we have an even greater benefit. We have 24 hours/7 days a week access to God through the Holy Spirit for communion and fellowship in prayer. He is a ready audience to our sacrifice of thanksgiving, praise and worship. When you enter into His presence through prayer and times of meditating on Him and the scriptures, you receive His life-changing benefits.

If you are struggling, then how do you value yourself? In other words, what are you saying, thinking/believing, and doing? Your words, thoughts/beliefs and actions dictate to your future. The scriptures say:

“You will eat the fruit of your lips.” — Your words.
“So as a man man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” — Your thoughts/beliefs
“You shall reap what you sow.” — Your actions.

God wants you to learn and know His word. He wants you to know and believe what He says about you and your inheritance. He wants you to feel good about yourself and accepting of yourself. He wants you to be able to have healthy relationships with other people. God completes you. In His sight you are perfect, entire and lacking nothing. He does not want you to be unhealthy mentally or physically. He doesn’t want you to be discouraged or have low self-esteem because He has declared in His word that you are chosen and you are royalty.

Little Book, Big Prayers: Spiritual Growth


To follow is an excerpt of the Introduction to the first “Little Book, Big Prayers” 4-book series scheduled for release October 27th.

Prayer should be contagious and something you would want to catch. Sometimes it is caught and taught by example from anointed men and women of God. The ideal way to catch the desire to pray is by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and being filled with His Holy Spirit. Our teacher and helper for prayer and living a redeemed life is through the Holy Spirit. When you yield to the enabling assistance of the Spirit you will want to commune and fellowship with God frequently. The Spirit helps us approach God with sincerity and humility.

Prayer is your access to the holy place, the presence of God–His glory, and for receiving revelation or the answer for your concerns. Developing a greater prayer life means you want to take hold of God. You want to know about Him, who He is, what He does, what He wants. You also find out who you are, why you are here, and what you can have. Prayer is your spiritual sustenance and helps you learn to yield and abide in Christ so you can become like Him.

As you pray you will experience the manifestation of kingdom alternatives to your circumstances. I heard someone say that prayers never die but live on before God until answered. If you want to communicate with God and gain a personal relationship with Him, you need to pray. Prayer is sharing your heart and mind about a matter with Him. God wants to hear from you even though He already knows what your needs are. Prayer is seeking His presence just to be in His presence. It isn’t necessary to want or need anything material to commune and fellowship with Him.

When you place God first in your life through daily prayer, you are introduced to a wealth of his promises. You can rest assured that He is your source. He deepens His relationship with you and causes you to see signs of change and your spiritual growth. You will find that you have greater peace and power to overcome obstacles and challenges. You will experience abundant living and provision. A deeper relationship through prayer reveals that God is truly omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient.

Prayer makes you ready to receive His compassion, love, faithfulness, goodness, and strength. You will find an increase of His presence and glory in your environment. You will see His guidance and direction for your life and relationships. The scriptures say that you will reap what you sow. If you sow the seeds of prayer in the atmosphere, you will reap a harvest of blessing. That blessing includes, provision, protection, healing, and deliverance for every facet of your life.

Jesus Get-aways


Once in a while I think I procrastinate in getting things done. But I find when time is deferred to abiding and quietly resting in the Lord’s presence, it gives me the greatest solace. Then the tasks I needed to accomplish always get done. When I take a Jesus Get-away, I abstain from TV, radio, internet, phone, email, and social networking for a full day. I have a busy lifestyle but I believe frequent Jesus Get-aways rejuvenate and transform your life. The Lord always allows you to see your spiritual growth whenever you devote your time to studying or meditating on the scriptures… praying and interceding for others. I look back over my life, and there are some things that used to be significant that I no longer consider or entertain. You get a different perspective of your emotional, physical, financial, spiritual life and relationships.

God had a simple formula for the children of Israel to receive His protection and blessings: And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good? – Deuteronomy 10:12-13

Although the challenges of life can distract or discourage, you can have joy knowing that the Lord is with you. He is your strength and peace. You can release the old things (bondage and lack) to receive the new things (blessing, deliverance and healing). Don’t allow the noise pollution of the day keep you from hearing and listening to the voice of the Lord. Hearing and listening are two different functions.

Trade in self-satisfaction (the ego) and distractions (the unimportant things) to allow God to move in response to your expectations. Your expectations should be born out of hope, faith, spiritual hunger and desire. He moves in response to communication and communion with the “still small voice.” When you choose to sit at the feet of Jesus like Mary did, you can get a taste of how she felt. You can have a greater devotion and  closer walk with Jesus Christ. Even He took frequent get-a-ways with the Father. See Luke 5:16, Luke 6:12, John 6:15, John 8:1.

Prayer: When I am Bitter


Lord when my soul is bitter I seek your deliverance and peace. As I cry out for your mercy, liberate me from the pit of corruption and cast all of my sins behind me. Create in me a clean heart and renew my spirit with your love and righteousness. Refresh me by your Holy Spirit. You have forgiven me by your great mercies and unfailing love. With the enabling power of the Holy Spirit, I am patient, kind and forgiving of others. You give peace to my soul as I choose the wisdom and knowledge of your truth.

I am not envious of others and do not harbor strife in my heart because it produces confusion and evil. Bragging or amplifying lies is deceitfully wicked. Carnal, sensual and evil conversation does not flow from my lips because it lacks wisdom. Hatred stirs up strife and contentions but love covers all sins. Dig up and empty out everything in me that is rooted in bitterness. Fill the empty places in my heart with your love. Abiding in your grace and favor destroys the root of bitterness and keeps it from springing up again. Abiding in your love delivers me from defilement.

Thank you for delivering me from bitterness. Thank you for delivering me from anger and wrath. My soul is released from the captivity of a brawling nature. My mouth no long speaks evil and I have put away malicious thoughts. My conversations are righteous and pure. Daily I show meekness and wisdom through obeying your word and walking in your ways. You have ordered my steps and with joy and gladness I follow your pathways with all diligence. Thank you for the abiding fruit of your spirit. It is your love, grace and peace that flows freely through me to others. I bless others as you have blessed me.
