An important part of the work of intercession is knowing and stepping into your place of intercession.
This occurs when God calls and anoints an individual to take up a specific partnership with him in order to advance the kingdom of God.
The Lord could call you into intercession for your family, your place of work, your church, your community or your nation.
Sometimes the Lord will call intercessors to focus upon a specific issue like education or healthcare or even to pray for a specific event like the nomination of a supreme court judge or an evangelists event taking place in your neighbourhood.
Whatever the focus or sphere of that intercession, the call to it comes from the Lord. It is an invitation to surrender a personal agenda and move to a place where one is praying God’s agenda. It is specifically praying for God’s will to be done.
In the first of three videos, Rev Dr. Brad Long, shares about his own call for God to a place of intercession. In his case this was for two unpopular US presidents. Brad shares how he learned about the place of intercession by observing the lives of two prayer warriors, Archer Torrey in Korea and Rees Howells in the United Kingdom.
In our place of Intercession we have the privilege of partnering with Jesus Christ to see His Kingdom advanced.
In the next lesson we shall look at the example of the prophet Amos, who was called by the Lord into a place of intercession for the Northern Kingdom of Israel.
