Romans 12:12 “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.”
Contritions’ “Empty-Handed” Gifts!
Begin each fervent prayer on behalf
of one another with Intercessions’ zealous presence…with Compassionfrom the LORD.
Start humbly with Intention and with brokenness of spirit.
Use Contritions’ “empty-handed”
gifts to bless HIServants ‘round you.
Therefore rise upon your knees; lift your face to kiss the pavement!
Intercede then while believing for the one whose cries have found you!
As HIServant actively reminded to hear, see and fervently pray for the needs of the Body,
Devotional: Ephesians 6:18 “Praying at all times in the SPIRIT, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints…”
When we hear an elevated voice inside our homes, a child’s sudden cry…
…their need has been brought to our attention. How many would walk away or delay assisting / finding out the cause of their tears?
We instantly move and immediately care for our families and loved ones.
That’s how GOD is, instantly hearing and moving as well in accordance with HIS sovereign will for our lives!
My prayer is that your prayers will be equally urgent and zealous for the cries of others.
If you can reach someone to comfort, care for and hopefully remove their distress…
…if GOD’s provision is in your hand and your own families cries are being attended to…then give as the LORD leads.
Cheerfully and faithfully believing because JESUS took 5 loaves and 2 fish and fed thousands!
And if you, with all Contrition hear yet have “empty-hands”, then the gift of deep, intercessory prayer is yours to share with everyone!
It costs nothing but your time and as we fill many hours with our own interests, a warring prayer against the darkness for those in need is most valuable.
So I greatly encourage all to directly help if you can and for all to directly pray…because we can!
Romans 8:26 “Likewise the SPIRIT helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the SPIRIT HIMSELF intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”
Lastly, one way HE impressed upon me 30 years ago was to leave sincere prayers for others on their phone’s voicemail.
I can’t begin to tell you the number of souls who played and replayed them for encouragement and! Who in turn do the same for others now!
1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing!”
Strengthen the Body in the NAME of the LORD WHO loves and cares for you as you read this…far more than is known.
Amen and amen!
