THE EARNEST WAR OF INTERCESSION  2/26/08

Prayer is a mystery not understood.

Oneness with Him in the priesthood.

Not sweating or striving in the fight.

But groaning passion for whatís right.

 

Weighing all sides in careful balance,

Counting the cost to be valiant.

Sacrifice is beyond what one sees

Through body, soul and dignity.

 

In that place of the great in between

Stands the one who knows whatís unseen.

Itís deeper than mere words can express

Opposite poles pulling with stress.

 

Itís power is not in the right words.

Force and strife remain absurd.

Thoughts and contention lay on the ground.

Hope in Him to loose the profound.

 

Wrestling with what does not measure up,

Trusting in God to swallow His cup...

Is to yield to Him to have His way

Piercing the darkness and the day.

 

A war of intercession is won

After the works of flesh is done.

Having laid them all down on the cross

Knowing life is exchanged for loss.

 

Heb 5:5-8 NKJV

So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him: "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You."   As He also says in another place: "You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek";  who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear, though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.

 

1 Cor 1:26-29 NLT

Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world's eyes, or powerful, or wealthy when God called you. Instead, God deliberately chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose those who are powerless to shame those who are powerful. God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important, so that no one can ever boast in the presence of God.

 

James 5:16-17 NKJV

The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
