Guys, did you know that your prayers matter? They actually matter. They shift things in the earth. You know, it’s like we have our personal prayer time with the Lord where we pray for things that are concerning us, whether it’s, you know, your finances, your family, your job, whatever it is. But then the Lord calls us to a place, an intercession, where we begin to partner with Him and we begin to pray the prayers of Jesus.
The word says that Jesus is at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us. And so I just wanna encourage you, prayer, intercession is such a powerful tool where you can say, “God, what are you praying?” You know, we see just so many things on the news. I feel like we’re just being bombarded with just chaos in the earth right now, and it’s so easy to become overwhelmed. But guys, God has a solution. And we can take time and we can say, “Lord, what are you praying about this situation?” And we take time and we listen, and then we begin to partner with Him, and we begin to pray the prayers of Jesus on the earth.
And sometimes I don’t feel like I have enough faith, and I don’t feel like my prayers matter, but I know for sure that I can bank on the prayers of Jesus. And so I lean in and I say, “God, what are you praying about this situation? What is your heart for this situation?” And then I just begin to pray out what I feel like the Lord is saying, you know, about whatever it is that’s on His heart.
And so I just really just want to encourage the body that we would begin to step into just that deeper realm of intersection, that deeper place of just praying, just partnering with God. You know, the word says, “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray.” It doesn’t say if we will humble ourselves and make Facebook posts and Instagram posts, if we will humble ourselves and become loud and angry. But it says, if we will humble ourselves and pray, then God will heal our land.
And so, I’m just gonna take time just to pray for our nation right now, and just that faith would arise in you to just begin to pray just the intercession of Jesus. And so, Lord, we just humble ourselves and we just, we pray God for our nation, Lord, we ask that you would just give us your burden for this nation, God, that you would give us your burden for people, for people groups, for cities, God. For states, Lord. God, that you would yet just begin to just pour out the intersection of Jesus on the earth, God. And that we would see just a wave of healing, God, just touch our land. God, where there is pain, God, where there is blood crying out in the streets, God, that your blood speaks a better word over this nation. God, we ask that you would finish the good thing that you started, God, that you would make your name known in the earth. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
