Powerlessness is a brutally effective weapon against joy. Most people have prayed and experienced a rather substantial lack of answers to prayer, and it significantly robs people of motivation to go back and pray again.
I plan on sharing a lot of answers to prayer, but more specifically, I want to differentiate between prayer and intercession. Prayer is sharing our wishes with God. Intercession is praying His will back to Him. We have a much higher return on investment when we do intercession.
As we craft strategy, we will have a blend of both.
Bless them with “hope rising” as they see the power of intercession and begin to see all the different facets of God’s will that are known in various situations, even though there are always some situations where we don’t know where He is going.
I plan to incrementally move them away from the fix-the-pain prayers and get them to focus on God’s Kingdom agenda in each situation.
