#2 CAN GOD FIND INTERCEDERS?

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh,

shall he find faith on the earth?

DEFINE:

INTERCEDE, INTERCESSION

To be situated between things, To find away to get over or through difficulties.

To intervene on behave of another, to plead, prayer.

Mediate, to produce agreement or RECONCILIATION.

I. INTERCESSORY PRAYER IS NOT OPTIONAL IT IS AN IMPERATIVE COMMAND...

INTERCESSORY PRAYER WILL ALWAYS BRING BENEFITS... IT IS PREVALENT...

A. WE ARE ALL ON A MISSSION... AN ERRAND OF AN HOLY GOD...

THIS ERRAND IS PRAYER AND INTERCESSION...

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

faint;

B. EMPTY HANDS? EMPTY HEARTS? EMPTY PRAYERS...

THE VEIL IS GONE...

THE DOOR OF MERCY AND GRACE IS OPENED TO PRAYER AND INTERCESSION...

James 5:16 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.

C. Intercessory prayer is a sweet incense in the GOLD CENSER on God's altar.

II. WILL WE CAST IN OUR MITE OF INTERCESSORY PRAYER ON THE ALTAR OF GOD...

A. ARE WE EVER WITHOUT LOST, SICK, HURTING???

B. LAY YOUR PETITION OF THE THRONE ... ASK AND GOD GIVES...

Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened

unto you:

Luke 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall

be opened unto you.

C. ASK BIG... ASK BOLD... CHURCH ASK WHAT WE WILL...

UNPRAYED PRAYERS WILL NEVER BE ANSWERED...

III. BUT I GIVE MYSELF TO PRAYER... THERE ARE DIRECT BENEFITS... TO PRAYER...

A. WHAT LESSONS DID DAVID LEARN AND TEACH?

WHAT IS A BENEFIT?

Favorable, helpful, bring or receive advantage, gain.

Psalm 103:2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

B. DAVID LEARNED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE POWER HE HAD...

Psalm 109:4 For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer.

C. THROUGH PRAYER AND THE WORD THERE WAS HEALING AND DELIVERANCE.

Psalm 107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

IV. OUR ENEMY FEARS ANY SAINT THAT PRAYS FAITHFULLY... SATANIC ORDERS ARE

KEEP THEM FROM PRAYER.

SIN KEEPS US FROM PRAYER --- PRAYER KEEPS US FROM SIN...

Psalm 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

A. WE HAVE NOT FOR 2 REASONS:

1. WE DON'T ASK

2. WE ASK AMISS

James 4:2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye

have not, because ye ask not.

[3] Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

B. WE CAN NOT ALLOW OUR FAMILIES TO BECOME WAR ZONES...

1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife,

as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

V. MORDECAI WAS AN INTERCEDER... HE TAUGHT ESTHER HOW TO INTERCEDE...
