God wants you to partner with Him to reclaim and redeem the world. The Bible says, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Once again, God has called His people to be His priests, or intercessors— this refers to the entire body of Christ, not just an
elite group of “Intercessory Prayer Warriors” in the church. We all have the power to bring God’s will on earth so the world can be healed and transformed by His grace.
God’s will can be executed only through mankind’s cooperation. Prayer is this medium of cooperation and is therefore the most important activity of humanity. Use the purpose and position God has given you to invite heaven’s intervention on earth. Prepare your heart, mind, soul, and strength to agree wholly that God’s will be done on earth until “the kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ” (Revelation 11:15).
The earth is depending on you to pray. Your children’s children are depending on you to pray. All creation is depending on you to pray. Heaven is depending on you to pray. I challenge you: Pray!
Father, here I am; send me. Use me in prayer to touch the people around me; use me in prayer to see Your will accomplished in my family, my church, my job, my school, my neighborhood, my state, and my country. I am Yours, Lord; use me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: Heaven is depending on you to pray!
