My Mom and I were just talking about the burden we have for the lost around us and for the believer’s too. Standing in the gap for them in prayer is the only answer. Ezekiel 22:30 I looked for a man(woman) among them that would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none.
When you stood or knelt before God in prayer for someone else, you were standing in the gap. You were fulfilling a need for someone who may have been unable to fulfill it themselves. Standing in the gap is our duty, our calling as Christians. God is looking for those who are willing to stand for those who cannot stand for themselves……Are you willing?
Christ is always making intercession for you, will you stand in the gap with Him for your church, your pastor, your county, state, nation, your friends and family?
My dear friend, if you are in need of someone to stand in the gap for you, please let someone know. Please reach out to someone you trust and let them know how to pray for you.
Romans 8:34 Jesus who died-more than that, who is raised to life-is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
Romans 8:27 the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.
The Holy Spirit is the best prayer partner you will ever have. Welcome Him into your daily prayers and life.
Father, Thank You for the times others have stood in the gap for me. Times I have been too broken to utter the prayers I needed at that time. Help us to stand in the gap for others who are in that same situation. Drop them in our Spirit, bring them to our minds, wake us up to the need to stand in the gap. Amen.
