Saturday Prayer Symposium
with Thomas Jacob, D.Min. (aka "Hey Dr. J")
TITLE PAGE RESPONSIVE READING
“O God, help us to learn how You change lives
when we set aside our own agendas, take You at Your Word,
and listen for Your Voice. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen.”
Prayer can change lives and circumstances like nothing else can.
Prayer can accomplish what a willing God can accomplish.
Anything God can do, prayer can do!
May God help us turn prayer from a mere activity into a vital link
with God and His resources; furthermore, may God turn us into a vital, thriving community of believing intercessors who pray with passion, focus, and faith.
Intercessory Prayer is something very real and tangible.
It can change a person’s life, transform a neighborhood,
invigorate a church, and even alter the course of history.
The powerful role of the Holy Spirit guides us to intercede and answers our prayers.
As we take time to call on God, confess our sins, and clear the air of anything that would hinder an answer from God, we are going to see miraculous things happen!!!
If we really want to intercede with power, then we will need to break through into greater holiness. We don’t need a formula or a method of praying. But we do need to live with purity and simplicity rather than with carnality, hype, and hardness.
Intercessory Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance.
It is laying hold of God’s willingness. We must always relate the Holy Bible to prayer because it’s the Word of God that produces faith that makes prayer vital and dynamic.
Although the work of intercessory prayer is often difficult, it is to be a key part
of every believer’s life. Interceding in prayer for another person is like
touching God with one hand and touching the person with the other.
With God’s help, let us foster love and cooperation;
let us make prayer a higher priority in our lives and worship together.
Yes, great things will happen as we pray and seek to make the church
a “House of Prayer”, allowing God to pour out fresh grace and blessing.
“O God, help us to become the House of Prayer you have called us to be.”
