MESSAGE SUMMARY: We can come before God on behalf ourselves and others -- intercessory prayer. You and I are given the privilege of following Moses example when he prayed to God on behalf of his people in Psalms 102:1-2: “Hear my prayer, O LORD; let my cry come to you! Do not hide your face from me in the day of my distress! Incline your ear to me; answer me speedily in the day when I call!". Because of what Jesus has done for us, we can exercise this privilege of praying directly to God, the Creator of the Universe. The question is not: "Can we come before God with our prayers?";but "Will you come before God with our prayers, and for whom will you pray?”.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION: I affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, Jesus, I will trust in the Lord with all my heart. I will trust in with all of my heart and lean not on my own understanding. In all my ways I will seek to know Him, and He will make my pathways straight. (From Proverbs 3:5f).
