Today I want to share "My Utmost For His Highest" by Oswald Chambers. Because people spoke a little differently than most of us do now, you have to read carefully, and prayerfully, to really get the message that Holy Spirit is desiring for us to know!
So many well meaning believers pray out of sympathy for those asking for prayer. Sympathy is NOT a godly response! It is fleshly and based on emotions and NOT on the Word of God! Compassion is what moved JESUS, and He responded with the Word of God! If we are to be of any real help and use to those we care about and pray for, we MUST be living in the Word of God and having the Word of God alive in us! This gives Holy Spirit something to work with as we move in intercession for them! There is NO power without the word of God, as led by the Spirit of God! The next time you are moved to pray for someone, recognize that every work of darkness has a source and then find out what the Word of God says. Then go boldly to Holy Spirit to receive your instructions in what and how to pray, by praying in the Spirit until HE leads to something specific! THIS is the powerful way to pray for others. SOME may accuse you of not caring, but nothing could be further from the TRUTH! It costs nothing to SAY: "I'll pray for you, and THAT affects nothing. But to really pay the price of intercession for those, when nobody knows, will wield REAL power where it counts and that will get results! AMEN! Here is Hillsong with "Say The Word":
Shalom in Him!
