Ministry of Prayer:
One area that is so important in Church life is the ministry of prayer and intercession. While believers are called to pray, some give themselves more diligently and fervently to specific and strategic intercession. Groups of intercessors can be assigned to particular ministries and pertinent issues in the church, the city, the Nation, and even the world nations.
“This woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.” Luke 2:3
“So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.” Ezekiel 22:30
“He saw that there was no man, And wondered that there was no intercessor;” Isaiah 59:16
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints-and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel.” Ephesians 6:18-19
