One of my friends spends 30 minutes/day in intercessory prayer. Through his example I’ve been challenged to do the same.
That was two months ago.
How’s it going so far? I’m inconsistent, and when I do sit down before the Lord my mind easily wanders. Yet, I’m beginning to WANT to be there…
Would you care to join me on this adventure?
Others are way ahead of me as intercessors; I’m totally a novice. Still, if I may offer these suggestions:
- Start small, maybe with 10-15 minutes/day. Then gradually build up to longer periods.
- I always set my stopwatch for the time I’ve committed. Otherwise, I don’t have the discipline to follow through. It sounds unspiritual, I know.
- Use a Bible. How? I’ll talk about this next week.
Your comments are welcome as always. Perhaps you’d share some of your own struggles/ideas/breakthroughs on the topic of intercession, as an encouragement to our readers.
