Notes from this episode
THE GOLDEN ALTAR OF INCENSE PART 2
THE HORN OF PRAYER
Prayer can be likened to an orchestra. One of the most obvious facts that we see when we look at an orchestra, is that there are a variety of instruments which are played by a number of musicians. And if we had to go further and look at the music score, we will notice music written for the various instruments however when all is combined, we have a harmonious sound.
DIFFERENT KINDS OF PRAYER
Just as we find a variety of instruments in an orchestra not to mention the variety of music that an orchestra plays, so we find various types of prayer.
I Timothy 2:1 Therefore, first of all I urge that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made on behalf of all people, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 3 This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
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 saints.
Prayers of Thanksgiving, Praise & Worship (Appreciation, gratefulness, thanks, praise)
Prayers of Confession & Repentance
Prayers of Meditation (Contemplation, worship, musings)
Prayers of Supplication (Entreaty to the Lord, Cry for Mercy)
Prayers of Petition (Making known our requests)
Prayers of Warfare
Prayers of Intercession (Born out of the heart of God and taken back to God)
THE HORN OF INTERCESSION
Intercession literally means to come in between—between God and those for whom you are praying.
Rom. 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. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Rom. 8:34…who (Jesus) is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.
Examples of intercession, Abraham intercedes for Sodom Gen. 18:22-33 and Moses intercedes for Israel Ex. 32:11-13; 33:12-16.
The intercessor is God-centered and that which is born out of the heart of God is taken back to God.
Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none. 31 Therefore I have poured out my indignation upon them.
An Intercessor is the one who builds the wall and stands in the gap.
Isaiah 59:16 He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no one to intercede; then his own arm brought him salvation, and his righteousness upheld him.
As long as there is an intercessor there is hope.
Those in authority – leaders in the church, government, family and workplace
My family – both immediate and extended family members
My church – pastors, leaders, members and missionaries
My community – people in your city, nation, and world
My relationships – friends and co-workers
Meditate upon Ephesians 6:18 and 1 Timothy 2:1 and then consider how your prayer life measures up.
What does it mean to be a ‘holy and royal priesthood’ (I Peter 2:5,9)?
How often do you pray and intercede for others?
