The Ministry of Intercession 

Text:

1 Samuel 12:23  ESV

23 Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by ceasing to pray for you, and I will instruct you in the good and the right way.

Introduction:

On Tuesday evening Brenda and I were in the TV room. She was paying bills and I was relaxing and watching a program. Then, one of the children called and they needed our joint attention. We tried to give them help but it was obvious that we could not do much. We prayed and I begin to think about the power of the ministry of intercession.

It is this subject that I wish to spend a few moments with you this morning.

Outline:

  1. The Ministry of Intercession is coming to the aid of another.
  2. The Ministry of Intercession is interjecting spiritual truth into the situation for  another.
  3. The Ministry of Intercession is loving another at the highest cost.
  4. The Ministry of Intercession is believing God for another when they cannot.
