  • 3. INTRODUCTION To intercede means to plead on behalf of somebody; to stand in the gap before God for others or to entreat the Lord on behalf of others.
  • 4. INTRODUCTION CONTD Standing in the gap is not for personal needs or personal problems but it is standing for the land, for the people, for the church, for the hospital and for the fellowship. This is intercession.
  • 5. INTRODUCTION CONTD The appalling condition of Israel in the days of Ezekiel, in which God’s Verdict was that “the land is unholy; it is impure and ripe for judgement”, although not yet judged {Ezekiel 22:24}.It meant that something could still be done.
  • 6. INTRODUCTION CONTD The present day church is not different; compromises, lukewarm ness, insincerity, lack of love, bitterness, prayerlessness, division, worldliness, hypocrisy, preaching and acting to please men etc has become the order of the day.
  • 7. INTRODUCTION CONTD The situation of things in our land is nothing to write home about either. There is indeed an urgent need for men and women that voluntarily yield themselves to be used of God to intercede until Zion is established and Jerusalem made praise on earth
  • 8. DICUSSION 1 a. From the texts above what was the prevailing situation that demanded for an intercessor? b. Point out and discuss the prevailing conditions today in our land and church. Do these call for intercession?
  • 9.  2 Discuss these factors that trigger and maintain intercession? i. Burden Rom 9:1-2 ii Love and concern Isaiah 62:1 iii Insight/information Dan 9: 1-3, Neh 1: 1- 4
  • 10.  iv Coming danger(as to avert) Jere 27:18, Gen 19:20-23 v Conversion of others Rom 9:1-3 vi Spiritual growth Eph 3:14-19
  • 11.  3 i Discuss the pattern of intercession as in Dan 9:1-19 Knowledge (discovery) of God’s mind concerning a situation[ prevailing or approaching] Vs 2 Knowledge of the causes of the problems Vs 7-8
  • 12.  Identifying with the sins of the people and the problem at hand ( Vs 5-6, 12, Neh 1:6) Knowledge of God’s mercies and promises, Neh 1: 8-9 Prevailing on God by His Word { through the above outlined} ii Explain the place of the Holy Spirit in intercession { Zech 12: 10a, Rom 8: 26-27}
  • 13.  4 Describe the exhilarating results of intercession a i Gen 18: 33, 19: 12-13 ii Ezra 1: 1-4, Dan 9: 1-3 iii Neh 2: 8 iv Acts 12: 5-7 b Give contemporary examples ; may be from personal testimony.
  • 14. CONCLUSION: Christ completed the work of sacrifice in His work of atonement on the cross. But Christ’s unfinished ministry is the ministry of intercession. Every Christian is to be partner priest with Christ; men and women who will shut themselves up and pray are indeed rare, oh! That Heavens will find one in you.
