There isn't enough room in this newsletter to provide all the references, etc.. so I implore you to study on your own before responding to be an intercessor on our behalf, for it is not as simple as occasionally praying until I hear of God's work in a situation like I once believed. But if you find God tugging at your heart to intercede for us or for the work God is doing through Impact Ministries, please let us know that you are standing in the gap for us.
Requires great responsibility - Ezek. 22:30-31; Gen 18:23-32; Ex. 32:7-14; Act 12:5-12
God seeks intercessors - Ezek. 22:30; Is. 64:7; Is. 59:16
Intercession can be heavy - Deut 5:5; Job 16:21; Is. 63:6-7; Lam 2:18-19; Mark 14:33-35
Certain people should be the focus regularly- 1 Tim 2:1-2; Eph. 6:18; 2 Cor 1:11; Eph 6:19-20; Acts 12:5; Rom. 15:30-32; Jeremiah 29:7; Daniel 9:3, 16-19
Intercessory prayer involves more than prayer - sense of burden and responsibility - Ezra 10:1, 6; Neh 1:4, Jer 13:17; Joel 2:12-14
Characteristics of a successful intercessor
Persistence and determination Isaiah 62:6-7
Patience Isaiah 62:6-7
Faith Is. 64:7
Severe self-discipline and selflessness (due to personal identification with the need) Mark 14:33-35
