Scripture Focus…

 Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. (15) My eyes will be open and my ears attentive to every prayer made in this place. (16) For I have chosen this Temple and set it apart to be holy—a place where my name will be honored forever. I will always watch over it, for it is dear to my heart.
(2 Chronicles 7:14–16 NLT)


The following excerpt is taken from Contact With God by Jeanne Wilkerson:

Intercede or be Swallowed Up

The life of Johan presents another clear picture of true intercession in the Bible. It shows how prayer can literally prevent the judgment of God. You know the story: Jonah was on a ship to Tarshish, running away from the call of God, when a storm blew up. The storm became so great that even the veteran mariners of the sea became fearful:

Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man until his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Johan was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.
Jonah 1:5

Jonah was the only one in that ship who had any knowledge of the true God. So the shipmaster came to Jonah and entreated him to call upon the true God so that they might not perish. (Jonah 1:6)

This is a picture of America today! We are in the midst of a terrific storm in the spirit. The hounds of hell are gnawing at the very throat of this nation. Therefore, I say to America, Awake! Call on your God as never before. For the hour is late. There are many things that the church has yet to accomplish. She has yet to show forth the supernatural light of heaven. This nation was born to be a light to all the other nations of the earth. Don’t let this light go out before its hour. You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world! (Matt. 5:13, 14.)

You hold in your hand the keys to the destiny of the world. Know that if you do not use them, as Esther of old was told, you cannot think that you will not suffer loss as well as your people. (Esth. 4:13.)

This is the Holy Spirit’s cry this hour to our nation. America is the last great bastion of freedom. We can’t take it for granted that the beacon light of the Statue of Liberty will always be held high. It may not, if the church in America sleeps. However, we have the power through intercession to stop the judgment of God!

Jonah finally became willing to do God’s work after his experience in the fish’s belly. He went on to Nineveh, that great Assyrian city, and preached to them.

And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth and sat in ashes.

And he cause it to be proclaimed and; published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything: let them not feed, nor drink water: but let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands. Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?

And God saw their works, and they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.
Jonah 3:4-10

By the power of intercession, you can turn the tide of judgment from a nation, from a church, from lives of individuals, from sons and daughters, and from husbands and wives. It is prayer that holds back judgment from all these. The intercession of hell is still crying out, Give me that individual! But you can hold hell back and bring heaven’s light to earth and to your brother’s door.

Prayer Like a River

The gospel spread all across the ancient world through prayer. It spread to Philippi because of the prayers of a group of women who worked near a river. (Acts 16:13.) These women went to the river and prayed there, washing and cleaning as they prayed.

God heard and answered their prayers by sending Paul a vision of a Macedonian man who was pleading with him to “come and help.” (Acts 16:9.) Paul did come to Philippi and found praying women by the riverside. He was able to spread the gospel and fulfill the prayers of the women by the river.

The river is a picture of intercession. Intercession flows from the hearts of men and women out to dry lands. But it doesn’t only flow one way. When you intercede, you not only speak to God, but God also gives you something in return. You prayers bring answers!

Intercession isn’t about just sitting in a chair and pounding your fists. No! You pray by the power and might of the Holy Spirit, not your own. You have to enter God’s presence through the Spirit, not the flesh.

Now, it is true that you may have to break through some spiritual barriers to enter God’s presence. Satan will oppose you because he doesn’t want you to get into God’s presence.

Satan tried to keep Jesus from reaching the throne of God. But Jesus made it through the spiritual barriers. He didn’t make it to the throne just because He was born the Son of God. God didn’t give Him any special favors. Rather, Jesus won the right to sit on that throne. He had to do some things to earn that right. He had to pass through this life without sin. Then He had to take on our sins and defeat the devil. Jesus paid the price to be seated at the right hand of the Father.

Jesus became more than a conqueror for our sakes. Hallelujah! He earned the position of King of Kings. He earned His position in the kingdom of God, and He can also bring us in. That is how your rank and position in the kingdom became established. He brought you into the kingdom to qualify you for God’s many blessings. And He prepared the way for you and me to inherit eternal life.
